Polish My Life Commando and OPI LAMB and Pure 18kt gold top coat

Hey my polish Friends!

I wanted to wear a black mani because some days you just feel like a badass and pink just won't do. Check out what I came up with.

The black is Commando from Polish My Life, this creme covers perfectly in 2 coats. Nice and glossy and dark.

The gold flake top coat is OPI Pure 18kt gold from the Mariah Carey collection. This one not only has gold flakes but also silver flakes! The effect is subtle but I think the mix of the white and gold metal is great, it's not super yellow like other flake top coats.

Check out my boss ring! Haha! I got it from ebay for $1. It's definitely cheap feeling but it's so fun I don't care.

How about you? What color do you wear when you want to feel like a badass?

Polish My Life Un-Teal Next Year and Love Angeline Wrap Me Up glitter gradient

Hey Everyone!

It's getting closer to Christmas and that means Holiday manis! I recently purchased the Polish My Life Holiday collection which consisted of 3 PML polishes and one glitter bomb from Love Angeline. Had to use the teal and glitter first!

This teal is perfect, my kind of teal! Un-Teal Next Year is a slightly leaning green teal from Polish My Life, great formula, this is 2 coats.

And the glitter! This is Wrap Me Up from Love Angeline. I love how it has a Holiday vibe but isn't in your face all hey I'm Christmas glitter!!! Lol

So happy with how this one came out, thanks for stopping by!

Butter London Stroppy and OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazilian

It’s Friday!!!!!! Yipppppeeeeee!

It’s been a long week for me, my BF has been sick with the flu and one of my kitties has been sick. She keeps getting what we thought was a cold but this last time was different so we took her in for x-rays and it might be asthma L or some other sort of chronic inflammation of the respiratory system……..Poor thing. She’s getting pretty expensive lol but I love her so whatever haha

Onto polish!

I’m calling this my Jem and The Holograms mani! The bright pink crème is OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian, such a POP of color. Nice formula, normally I can get away with 2 coats for this one but when my nails are longer I need 3 because my nail line is very dark.

This shimmery purple is Butter London Stroppy, 2 coats for opaqueness. It has fuchsia sparklies in it! Gorgeous color, if you like purple I HIGHLY recommend this one.

For the accent nail I used striping tape to make the X pattern and added purple 2 mm nail studs that I got from ebay.

Purple and pink manis, I dig em! Thanks for being totally outrageous ;)

Love Angeline Jasmine Tea and Polish My Life Eye Sea

Hey Everyone!

Today I have some really pretty polishes from a couple brands I recently discovered, Love Angeline and Polish My Life. Let’s get to it.

I used Stripped, a white crème, from Polish My Life as my base for all nails. On the ring and pinky I added 2 coats of Love Angeline Jasmine Tea, a white crelly full of lavender, salmon, blue, and aqua glitters. How cute is this one?

For the gradient on the pointer and middle fingers I sponged Eye Sea from Polish My Life, a bright blue crème. Great formula!

I added some purple 2mm nail jewels and I don’t know if they add to the design, I kinda think I should have left them off.

I’ve only attempted gradient nails a couple times and I have a lot to learn, like when to STOP haha. It will look nice with a few imperfections and then you try to make em better and just mess them up! Story of my life, thanks for stopping by!

She Nail Polish - Harlem chevron nail art

Hey Everyone!

Today I have a gorgeous polish from She Nail Polish, let’s check it out!

This bright cantaloupe is Harlem from She Nail Polish, a perfect crème. I used 2 coats here. One of my fav colors of polish to wear!

The gold texture is Honey Ryder from OPI, I used only 1 coat. When I used 2 coats of this polish I feel like you can’t see the texture as much. It has such a luxe look, I love it.

I used right angle nail vinyls from Vinyl It Up for the chevron design.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
