2 Pretty Polishes...

Don't always make a pretty combo. Last week, I had gotten a few Jade polishes in the mail and decided to use one in conjuction with Lynnderella Golden Rules. First up, a terrible picture of Jade Mystic Gold by itself:

Golden Rules
It's way more holo in real life. But it's pretty close to the color of mustard...holographic mustard? Hmmm... this was 2 coats, but it was almost opaque in 1.

Golden Rules
My index finger has one coat, and my other nails have 2 coats of Golden Rules. I think I was trying to channel the creative layering skills of Cathy at More Nail Polish, but I think I failed here.

Golden Rules
This is a really packed glitter, I should have only used one coat. It took a lot to try and smooth this out...and it still wasn't completely smooth after two coats of Glitter Food.

Golden Rules
I do have to say though, the blurred holo on my ring finger looks amazing. Also, the girls I tutor on Fridays really liked this. They thought my nails were fake...even though they are so short! As you can probably tell, I did not do cleanup because I did these late at night, but both polishes applied pretty well, and I didn't do too much fishing for glitter. Next time, I think I'll use a cooler toned gold if I decide to go with a gold base again.

Happy Polishing,

Happy me!!

Yes, it's my 23rd birthday, and I have no polish on except for Duri Rejuvacote. My nails are so bad, I finally decided to try Rejuvacote out, and I think it may be my perfect strengthener. It's only been 4 days though, so that may change, but my nails are already less bendy. I have no idea what's been causing the peeling and softness though. Anyway, I decided to come show you one of my fave makeup looks I've done in a while, because I still don't know what makeup I'm wearing today, but that's ok.

So the breakdown of what I'm wearing:
Inner & Outer Thirds of Lid: Sugarpill Mochi
Center of Lid: Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Nude (used with Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy)
Inner Eye Highlight: Silk Naturals Fire
Lid/Crease Blending Color: Sugarpill 2AM
Waterline: Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy Hyperliner
Lower Lashline: Fyrinnae Sennyo foiled with Pixie Epoxy
Lashes: Ardell Wispies

I could not get a good shot of my eye closed, sorry!!

Love how subtle the purple in the crease is!

both eyes
Kinda blurry, but I love how it makes it look ethereal!
So, hope you enjoyed another of my forays into makeup! I may be doing more makeup on here while my nails rest and regrow, but I'm not sure yet!
Happy Polishing,

Another She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named Glitter?

Yes, I bring you another Lynnderella glitter today. Why? Because they're pretty and I like them on my nails. As many have said, the drama is ridiculous, but goodness she can make a good glitter! Today's glitter is Shapeshifter. I layered it over 2 coats of China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint because originally, I was gonna layer Attitude Adjust-mint on top, but I really wanted all those shapes from Shapeshifter on my nails. So you'll only be seeing 3 of my nails today, since the PVA base coat works a little too well at removing glitter, and now I can't keep it on my nails. I promise it's still pretty though. But it needs at least 2-3 coats of topcoat to keep it smooth, so my nails were rather thick.

Lynderella Shapeshifter
Look at how thick that is! And apparently my elementary skills at applying Seche Vite...I haven't used that topcoat in a while.

Lynderella Shapeshifter
Look at all those pretty holo shapes!! Butterflies, hexes, big stars, little stars, diamonds, bars, squares, and even holo micro-glitter!  I could not stop staring at my nails!

Lynderella Shapeshifter
Ummm, yeah. I like this. A lot. I think I got all the shapes on this nail. Who am I kidding? I'll probably use this again and a horse shape will come out the bottle! Do they make horse-shaped glitter? LOL!!
This pic is more color-accurate with the flash, so I've got another one for you to drool over.

Lynderella Shapeshifter
Excuse the weird tip shrinkage. I have no idea what was happening there. You can especially see the butterfly shape here. 
Ok, I think I've posted enough pics for one post, so I'll see you around the blogosphere!

Revisiting a Glitter

So remember these sucky pictures of an amazing glitter I posted a couple weeks back? Well, I decided to pull out that glitter again and wear it over Nails Inc Baker Street. If you don't own Baker Street, you need it. Enough said. But I didn't stop at just Baker Street, I layered over it before I added glitter! On my ring, thumb, and pinky fingers, I added Girly Bits Street Magic, and on my index and middle fingers, I added my unnamed blurple franken with pink shimmer. Street Magic is amazing. I wish I'd used it on all my nails because when the light hits the shimmer so that it glows green, the combo was amazing and perfectly Halloweeny! It was so hard to capture the shimmer when it was green!  But enough of me talking, you wanna see pics!

Here you can clearly see the difference that my franken makes in the base color.
Isn't the glitter yummy over the shimmer? Ignore if it seems lumpy...I got sloppy with topcoat. It's not the glitter's fault.

You can see the shimmer on my pinky!!!

Bonus blurry shots where the green shimmer finally showed up!1-P1000155
Hope you guys enjoyed it and I'm sorry you can't be here in person to drool over this combo with me!
