More Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon swatches! This time with nail art!

(These polishes were purchased by me)

Hey Everyone!

Guess what?  I got even more swatches of the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neons!  As if I didn't post enough lol, you can see my first set of "plain" swatches without nail art and read my review here Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection Swatch Review - Spring 2015.  For these swatches I wanted to focus on stamping since I just got a shit-load of new stamping plates from HeHe and Qgirl.  Keep in mind, for all of these swatches I used 1 coat of white (Rica Polish Whiteout) and 2 layers of color topped with HK Girl Top Coat from Glisten & Glow.  Ok onto swatches!

I'll start with my fav stamping I did for this collection!  This is 'Diggin' The Dancing Queen.'  When I posted this on instagram so many people thought it was really watermarble!  Haha!  I haven't even tried to watermarble yet so this stamping plate, HeHe 040, is a good substitute.  I used Rica Polish Blackout and a couple of 2mm black studs to finish it off.

Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection Swatch Review Spring 2015

Hey Everyone!

Today I have a collection to share that I am SO excited about!  They are just me in a bottle lol  I'm talking about the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection for Spring 2015.  ALL the things I love, crème finish, pastel, and neon!  Well, washed out neon if you want to be specific.  You may have seen a lot of swatches of these on instagram and heard us all talking about the.... not so great formula?  Well, ok they're not perfect BUT I kind of expect that with these types of colors AND if you use a white undie (like I do with all neons) they are perfectly fine!  I only needed 2 coats of each color over 1 coat of white to reach full opacity with no patchiness or streakiness.  Now, if you didn't use a white undie these would probably take 3 or 4 coats to be opaque and even out.  So, moral of the story kids:  don't forget to wear clean undies with these!  Onto swatches and reviews!

OPI Infinite Shine Indignantly Indigo and DS Lapis review

Press Sample

Hey Everyone!

Today I am sharing another mani using the OPI Infinite Shine polishes that I received from the Preen.Me VIP Program.  This blue OPI Indignantly Indigo is so pretty!  It’s one of those bright/dark blues, which makes absolutely no sense haha  I didn’t want to take away from how blue it is so I paired it with OPI Lapis which is from the OPI Designer Series.  Shall we check out my mani?

Beetlejuice inspired mani – Gridlock Lacquer Yinz Goin Dahnthan?

Press Sample

Hey Everyone!

How about some Beetlejuice inspired nail art?  I was inspired by a mani by Anny Polish and Paint did about a month ago.  I must say, this is loosely inspired by Beetlejuice lol The only resemblance is the black and white stripes that I did using striping nail stencils.  On Instagram I labeled this as Beetlejuice joins the circus.  Onto pics!

OPI Infinite Shine Set in Stone and Maintaining my Sand-ity Gel Effects Lacquer System Review

Hey Everyone!

Today I will be reviewing my first OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System!  I was sent for review, a box of the Infinite Shine colors and the base and top coat from Preen.me as part of their VIP program.  This will really be my first time trying one these new pseudo-gel lacquer type systems.  Shall we just get past all the formalities and onto the polish?!  Let’s go!



To use these polishes you will need to buy into the 1-2-3 Gel Effects Lacquer System with the primer base and gloss top coat (that cures in natural light).  The primer base applied fine and dried pretty quick!  Always nice.  For my base color I chose Set in Stone.  A dark taupe that has hints of purple to it, it reminds me a lot of OPI I Sao Paulo Over There.  I held them next to each other and Set in Stone may be just a little darker but very close.  This was a very pigmented polish, almost covered completely in 1 coat.  It wasn’t thin or thick, just kind of that perfect consistency that makes it very easy to coat the nail and not flood the cuticles.  I would say the formula is slightly thicker than regular OPI polish and it has a stronger smell.  Nothing I couldn’t handle just wanted to note it.  I used 2 coats here, it dried pretty shiny and pretty fast!  Defintely faster than regular OPI polish.  I left my base to dry without top coat so that I could add some stamping.
