Amoresse Mambo Madness :D

Good afternoon!

Today, I want to show you the most amazing glitter/holo I've ever seen! Yes I'm a creme girl, but Amoresse Mambo Madness completely stole my heard :D It's a bit like a lavender version of OPI Paris Couture For Sure or CC Magic Attraction and is as blingy as you could imagine. I used 3 thin coats (sometimes 4) on my tips to get it completely opaque and even, but my matching pedi only required 2 coats of this beauty.

And how about a subtle Konad patttern to go with the bling? I used Princess Violet Pearl polish and plate M73 :D

Enjoy and have a great day!! :D

Zoya Envy :D

Good evening!

I received this polish from a friend of mine who felt it was too warm for her skin tone... and boy how pretty it is! Zoya Envy is a blackened green creme that almost seems to have very subtle shimmer. It does tend to look black in low light, but I love it anyways! It also applied very nicely in 2 (or 3?) thin coats.

And for day 2 I added some tone on tone Konad using plate M70 and Princess Apple Green polish :-)

Enjoy and have a great week!! :D

Icing Grape A Licious :D

Good afternoon!!

Last week while I was visiting my parents, I dropped by Icing (there are none in my home province) and fell in love with Grape A Licious at first sight. This is what ChG Flying Dragon looks like in the bottle, and a few shades lighter than what FD dries to. It's an almost neon blurple purple with tons of magenta and turquoise glitter :D Unfortunately it was a pain to remove, but who cares? LOL Both pics make it look just a bit more blue than it really is.

And I decided to try for some polka dots using Massini Infusion. I think it looks prettier in real life as the dots don't jump out as much.

Enjoy and have a nice day!! :D

Illamasqua Rare :D

Good afternoon!

I don't usually like buying more expensive polishes, but I had to make an exception for Illamasqua Rare once it showed up in the US. I have to say this is probably *the* best highlighter yellow neon I've ever tried on! It is opaque on its own in 3 thin coats without requiring a coat or 2 of white polish under :D Unfortunately, it seems that the weather was too hot and humid so it applied absolutely horribly, while my swatch (which is shown here) was flawless :-(

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

Barry M Shocking Pink :D

Good evening!

I've been away at my parents' for a few days, but I'm back tonight with a fabulous bright pink NOTD, Barry M Shocking Pink :D It's such a pretty pink, and it applied like butter and wore really well too!

And here it is with some awesome Konad pattern from plate M69 in Konad White polish :D

Enjoy and have a great week! :D

Orly Pixie Dust :D

Good evening!!

How many people ever thought I'd fall in love with a gray polish? Well I sure didn't, but I've just fallen for Orly Pixie Dust. It is the perfect glittery gray for my skin tone with the slight periwinkle/lavender undertone and glass flecks! I wore it for 3 days with no chips at all :D

I wanted to add some Konad but it took me 2 days to find the perfect combo LOL! I ended up using CC Fashion Addict which is somewhat similar in tone and I love how it turned out! Plate is M65 (it's a little hard to see the pattern because of the holo).

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

Nubar Hot Green & Hot Fuchsia pedi :D

Good afternoon!!

I've fallen in love with polka-dotted pedis, so here's my latest one. The base is Nubar Hot Green which might just be my favorite green neon and is completely opaque in 2 coats! I used Nubar Hot Fuchsia for the polka-dots which are unfortunately uneven since I didn't have very good lighting last night.

Enjoy and have a nice day!

CC Explosive :D

Good afternoon!!

Catching up again... here's Color Club Explosive, a fabulous super neon tangerine yellow :D It's more orange in real life as the pic shows, but absolutely impossible to photograph accurately... It's almost jellyish with a glossy top coat too!

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

Ciate Refresher :D

Good evening!

I have a new favorite light blue!! Ciate Refresher is an amazing pastel blue that has a slight lavender undertone which makes it completely unique in my collection! The formula was a little thick for my taste, but nothing a couple of drops of thinner won't fix :-) It is kinda like a lighter BB Couture Zuma Wave Rider which I also loved.

And I added some Konad using plate M72 and Nubar Lemon Sorbet, but I think I liked it better on its own...

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

Nails Inc Portobello Market :D

Good afternoon!

Here is Nails Inc Portobello Market, released last spring with 3 other pastels (including Spitalfields which I showed you just a few days ago). This one is a pastel orange, but it leans on the peach side when compared to Nubar Orange Cream for example. Completely different color for me, but I like it! It pops a bit more against my skin than the pics show tho.

And here it is topped with MakeUp Store Linnea, which I got thanks to a good friend from Sweden :D

I've also been testing Diamond Cosmetics' Super Dry top coat for the last couple of weeks, and I have to say I like it very much! I'm not completely sure about how quickly it dries (since I use quick-dry drops on top), but it doesn't give me bubbles like OTD has been doing of late :-)

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

BB Couture Love Drunk :D

Good evening everyone!

Here's another very recent NOTD, BB Couture for Nails Love Drunk. This is an awesome sparkly foily hot pink, and I love it!! Unfortunately for LD I've been feeling cremes a lot lately so it only stayed on for one day before I changed my mani ;-)

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D

Nails Inc Pool :D

Good evening everyone!

Here's a fabulous royal blue creme I wore a few days ago, Nails Inc Pool. This one also was an ASOS exclusive I managed to get my hands on thanks once again to my UK friend :D It applied amazingly just like most of my Nails Inc.

And here it is with image plate M64 in ChG L8R G8R :D

And something I don't do often, but here's my current pedi pic. I normally don't post pedi pics, but this one is too cool to hide ;-)

Enjoy and have a great evening! :D
