Nails Inc. - Topping Lane

Today's polish is a real "sweet one"! This polish is one of a set of 4 that I recently purchased at Sephora. You can get them here: Sephora. It was hard to pick which one to try first cause they are all so stinkin cute! This is made by Nails Inc. and it is the Special Effects Sprinkles line.  Here is the set of 4:
The one that I picked to do first is Topping Lane. This is a pink polish with pink, purple, and silver "sprinkles" in it. Close up of the bottle:
This polish was pretty thick and only 2 coats were needed for complete coverage. It's so pretty that I can't stop looking at my nails!! More pics:

Soooooo......i'm half tempted to remove this tonight and move on to the next one! We shall

Lush Lacquer - Dreamsicle

Happy Friday!! Everyone ready for the weekend? I know I am!! So yesterday I got my package from Lush Lacquer with 5 new mini bottles of fantastic polishes! Wooo hoo! This is a mother/daughter team who make AMAZING polishes! You can purchase them from their Etsy store here: Lush Lacquer.  They were all so beautiful I had a hard time picking which one to wear first! I ended up going with Dreamsicle which is a light blue polish with blue and silver dot glitter and tiny silver bar glitter. Here it is:

The polish was a nice even consistency and went on smooth. I used two coats and it was opaque. Followed by one coat of Seche Vite.

These pictures don't do this polish justice! It really is the most beautiful icy blue color!! So different than any other blue polishes that I own!  I'm in love! I'm probably gonna have to buy a full size bottle of this one! Also...go on over and like their facebook page: Lush Lacquer Facebook Page.

F4 Polish - Pink Penquin

Got another cute indie polish to show off today!! This one comes from F4 Polish and is called Pink Penquin. You can get it from her Etsy shop here: F4 Polish. This is a polish with a clear base with small black and white matte glitter and larger pink hex matte glitter.
I used the polish over top of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Then did a matte top coat. Turned out very cute!

Love the black/white/pink color combo!! The Pink Penquin was pretty think when applying so the glittler was very covering. I did two coats but could have easily gotten away with one. What do you think of this combo?

Pretty & Polished - Sand Art

Woo hoo! Today's post is an exciting one because I have been waiting a while to finally get this beauty of a polish! This one is called Sand Art by Pretty and Polished. You can get info about her polish sales on her facebook page or on her etsy site. Here is a close up of the magnificent bottle!
This is a matte glitter polish with lots of neon green, pink, blue and purple in it. I decided to layer it over Wet N Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint.
I did 2 coats of the Wet N Wild polish then 2 coats of the Sand Art. I love it! It was a little hard to photo but hopefully you can see the glorious neon glitter in these pics. I followed it up with 2 coats of Seche Vite.

Love love love this one! Another one of my top 10 polishes! Pretty & Polished makes awesome polishes! I better pick up some more! :)

On a side note.....this is what I got in the mail today! Wooo hooo!! Looks like lots of fun swatches coming soon!

Close up:
And outside:

Jawbreaker is a white jelly based polish with random sizes of multicolored glitter. There are circles, hexes,'s fabulous!!!  I can see why this polish is so highly sought after and so hard to get!!  This one is for sure in my top 10 polishes that I own.  This is 3 coats of Jawbreaker and 1 coat Seche Vite. I probably could have gotten away with 2 coats though. All in all I am super duper impressed with this polish. It really does look just like a Jawbreaker!! I can't wait to get my hands on some more polish from Pretty and Polished!!!   :)

Just got home from work and look what arrived in the mail!! Eeeek! I'm jumping for joy! :)

D&R Apothecary Toxic Waste and Kleancolor Bikini Green

Today's post is probably my favorite paint job of the week so far! I'm in love with this combo! Today I'm gonna show you Kleancolor Bikini Green topped with D&R Apothecary Toxic Waste. Toxic Waste can be purchased from this etsy store: D&R Apothecary. Sooooo....first off here are the two polishes:
The Kleancolor Bikini Green is a wonderfully bright vibrant shade of green. I love it just on it's own! The only downside that I have with the Kleancolor brand is that it seems to take forever to dry. To help with that I usually just throw a coat of Seche Vite fast dry top coat on and it speeds it up a lot. The plus is that Kleancolor polish is super cheap! I got this on ebay for less than $3.
And over by the window:

Then I went with 2 coats of Toxic Waste. This polish was very thick so 2 coats were plenty for good coverage. Here is a close up of the bottle:
It's a sheer green polish with lots of black bars and 2 different size dots. Here it is over the Bikini this!

By the window:
And a close up:

I'm in love! This one may have to stay on for a few days!!

OPI Be A Dahlia Won't You and OPI I Lily Love You

Well......since I am still anxiously awaiting a bunch of new indie polishes that I ordered in the mail i'm gonna go ahead and post some OPI swatches today! Today's manicure is from the OPI Nice Stems Collection. I started off with Be A Dahlia Won't You, which is a nice bright pink polish packed with tons of shimmer. It was actually hard to photo because of how shiny it was! When you turn your nails you can actually see shades of purples and blues in this polish. Beautiful!
2 coats on the nails inside:
Then I layered I Lily Love You on top of that. I Lily Love You is a sheer pink jelly like polish with tons of sparkle! There a various shapes and sizes of glitter throughout this polish but what stands out the most are the big opalescent flakes.
Here is a close up of the bottle:
And the polish inside:
Trying to capture the flakes:
And one last one outside. Here is where you can really see the sparkle:

This is probably my favorite pink polish that I own and I loooooooooove pink!

On a side note: I just got my email shipping confirmation from Llarowe that my Pretty & Polished polishes are on their way! I'm so excited!! :)

Daring Digits - Strawberry and Strings

Happy Monday!!! I have been wanting to do the white nail polish look for a while which inspired today's manicure. I used Wet N Wild Wild Shine polish in French White Creme as the base. This polish was cheap.....99 cents so I wasn't sure how well it would apply. It actually applied decently thick and I only needed 2 coats for good coverage. Then I applied another one of my new indie polishes over top. This one is called Strawberry and Strings and is made by Daring Digits. It's an awesome matte glitter bars, and large and small bubble gum pink dots. You can find her Etsy store here: Daring Digits.  Here are the polishes:
Close of of the glitter:
Here is 2 coats of white and 2 coats of Strawberry and Strings. I did have to place the glitter a bit to get the effect I wanted. Also topped with 2 coats of Seche Vite:
Close up pic:
And one more outside:

I think this turned out fantastic!! I have already gotten quite a few compliments on it!

Also, I was able to score 2 polishes from Llarowe from the Pretty and Polished line...Sand Art and Jawbreaker. I can't wait to get them! Yay!
