Nails, Inc. Trafalgar Square & China Glaze Long Kiss

Its been a quiet weekend so I thought it would nice to do a new mani.

China Glaze - Long Kiss - This is a dark red shimmer. I like this polish although its very similar to some other polishes I have, but its my favorite shade of red, so can have too many I guess. This has a good application and coverage.

Nails, Inc. - Trafalgar Square - This is a silver magnetic polish. I'm really like these magnetic polishes.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I have a simple mani for today.

Zoya Chloe Nephratiti & Raven

I got some new Zoya in the mail today and check had to start trying them out.

Nephratiti - This is a Candy Apple Red super micro glitter polish. I love this one. Its a bit sheer but two coats and it looks awesome. And please, how can you not love a polish named Nephratiti, I mean seriously

Raven - This is a Black shimmer very pretty and good coverage.

Chloe - This is a red and green flakey in a sheer pink base. You can't see the pink base on top of the black, but I really like the flakey mix on this one.

OPI Super Bass and Not Like the Movies

Its been a long short week, so I'll get right to it.

OPI - Not Like the Movies - This is a green purple duochrome with pretty little sparkles. But I can't say much of it on this mani as its pretty much covered up.

OPI - Super Bass - This is the new purple shatter from the Nicki Minaj collection. This is a pretty purple shimmer with a nice crackle effect.

1-14-2012 - Nails, Inc. Houses of Parliament

I can't believe I've been wearing the same polish since Tuesday. But today I have something new, I've jumped on the magnetic bandwagon. I figured with the new China Glaze magnetic collection coming out in a few weeks, I better pick up whatever I could find to make sure I like it. So here it is.

Nails, Inc. - Houses of Parliament. This is a purple magnetic. It took me a bit to figure out exactly how to use it as the directions on the bottle are in French. But I muddled through my first time and it didn't turn out too badly.

1-10-12 - Orly La Playa and Orly Androgynie

Its late so I'll just get to it

Orly - La Playa - This is a navy blue creme. Great coverage and application. This is my favorite navy polish. I love this one.

Orly - Androgynie - This is a black with large hex and small pieces of multi-colored glitter. The delivery of the small glitter was very good. Not so much for the hex glitter, very little was delivered in two coats. A bit of a disappointment.

Topped with Out The Door

Please excuse my huge paper cut. I sliced my finger open on a redwell at work today.

I'm still not getting very good pics with my new camera. I'm not sure I really like it.

1-7-12 - An Unexpected Find

So to make a long story even longer, as I was driving home from getting a new tat at a place that's far from where I live, I drove by an Ulta I've been to once or twice, I decided to stop in to see if they had the Zoya Feel Collection that Ulta was supposed to get last week. They didn't. So I was looking at their clearance polish which they had in bowls all mixed together, and a dark OPI glitter caught my eye, so I picked it up and to my surprise, My Private Jet. It was the newer one of course, but I've never seen it anywhere and it was on sale for $4.99. They had two so I grabbed them both. I've been wanting this one for a long time, although I would still love to get my hands on the original holo one. :) I think we can all guess what my mani for tomorrow is going be ;p

1-6-11 - OPI DS Temptation

Hope everyone has a great weekend. For today I have

OPI - Black Onyx - This is a nice black, two coats, pretty good coverage and application. Definitely in my top 5 for blacks.

OPI - DS Temptation - This is a purple and holo glitter in a transparent purple base, which of course you can't tell here since I put it over black. Any way this is a really nice glitter polish, very sparkly and pretty.

I have a pic both with and without flash

1-4-12 - China Glaze Mistletoe Me

For Pink Wednesday I have a major fail. I've been hearing alot about using metal studs on manis, so I went to Michael's and picked some up. In the package they looked really small but was I started using them they are huge. But I finished it anyway.

China Glaze - Mistletoe Me - This is a dark pink foil from the China Glaze Ulta Exclusive Holiday collection. Application is very smooth with good coverage. I used two coats but could have gotten away with just one.

I don't know what kind of weird place I live in, its 80 degrees in January, craziness.
Anyway to get down to the reason we're all here:

Zoya - Blair - This is a beautiful burgundy shimmer. I love this polish. Great color, great application and coverage.

Nabi Crack - Gunmetal - This suprisingly has a good crackle effect.
