OPI Can't Let Go - OPI You're Such A Buda-Pest

I'm trying better to get my manis up as soon as possible. So for today I have

OPI - You're Such A Buda-Pest - This is a light lavender with very very fine pink shimmer which you really can't see in the picture.

OPI - Can't Let Go - This is medium purple with medium purple hex and small purple glitter, Liquid Sand polish, i.e. matte base with the glitter.

Out The Door used on You're Such A Buda-Pest - No top coat on Can't Let Go

From 4/25

Illamasqua - Speckle - I'm loving this polish. Its a lavender creme with black glitter. I thought it was going to be really sheer but it has great coverage in two coats.

From Today

This is one of those new Kiss Gradient Kits

Its okay, but I'm not overly thrilled with it. I probably won't use it again and just do my gradients using the the sponge method.

China Glaze Toe-Tally Textured and China Glaze Papaya Punch

So I picked up the China Glaze Texture collection. Here is the first one. Toe-Tally Textured. This is a what the crayon box called yellow-orange texture. I put it on top of Papaya Punch a yellow-orange creme. They go together very well. I like the China Glaze texture polishes. They are very similar to Milani textures. No glitter such the texture like the side of house.

I used Seche Vite on top of Papaya Punch. No topcoat of course on Toe-Tally Textured.

OPI Matte Topcoat - OPI Quarter of a Cent Cherry

Hope everyone is having a good hump day. Getting closer to the weekend, yeaaa. I have a quick one for today. I tore my hand up at work today packing up files, so sorry about all the cuts and scratches.

OPI - Quarter of Cent Cherry - I've talked about this one before, not much more to say, this is a really nice dark red, one of my favorites.

OPI - Matte Topcoat - So OPI has a new matte topcoat. What can you say about a matte topcoat, it made it matte. Work the same as all the rest.

I did top Quarter of Cent Cherry with Out The Door.

Orly Aqua Pixel - Orly Dazzle

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. Once again my recent manis have been really bad. But I have one for you today. This weekend a picked a three of the Orly Mega Pixel FX polishes. This collection is Orly foray into the matte glitter market. These are similar to Zoya Pixie Dust.

Orly Dazzle - This is a silver metallic foil polish. I like this polish a lot although I do have a bit of problem with it getting bit lumpy.

Orly Aqua Pixel - This is a light ice blue matte glitter. Its a pretty color, not one that the matte glitter collections are offering. This one though does seem to have less texture than some of the other brands. Over all though a nice polish.

I used Out the Door on Dazzle. No top coat on Aqua Pixel.

I have one picture taken outdoors and one taken one taken indoors without flash.

Nails, Inc - Noho and Nails, Inc. Shoreditch Lane

I was sitting and thinking today, that it seems I've been doing my nails a lot less this year than I have in the past and I'm not sure why. Its definitely not a lack of choices since I have more polish now than I ever have before. But anyway, hopefully I'll start being more motivated and have new manis for you more often.

So lets get right to today's mani.

Nails, Inc. - Noho - This is their black leather effect polish. I've done a mani with this one before. I really like the coverage and application and the texture is most awesome.

Nails, Inc. - Shoreditch Lane - This is the red leather effect. Its a really cool shade of red, kind of darker brickesh red. Also very good coverage and application. And again, love the the texture.

No top coat used.
