NOTD 151 – Pretty in Pink <3

Good Morning, Happy Hump Day!

Today I have a quick post for you, and then I will have a special surprise for you on Saturday rather than this weeks Featured Color Friday. 😀

I did a gradient mani using two coats of “Julep’s – Carrie” and “Girls Rock – Pretty Girls Rock”

NOTD 74 – Slumber Party

Last night as I am doing my nails, my husband informed me, or reminded me that I haven’t done any nail art lately, whether it be free hand or stamps. During the 31 day challenge I did a lot more art than I have lately and I think it’s just that I have been on such an effect kick. An effect kick as in, glitters and color changing nail polish; Nail polish that has an effect that doesn’t need nail art. For those of you that are fans of my art, whether it be my free hand (which is not that great, lol) or my stamping, I promise that for the Halloween Mani month I will be bringing back some more nail art.

With that being said, I painted my nails last night with “Zoya – Charisma” 2C, and “Milani – White” 2C as an accent and topped it off with “Lush Lacquer’s – Slumber Party” 1C. This is a gorgeous multi shaped glitter topper in black, white, pink, purple, and blue. Just as “Salt n Pepa” the formula was amazing and so easy to work with and just simply fabulous!

And lastly, here is a close up of the white and purple so you can really see how different the topper looks on different colors. Obviously with the white you lose the white flicks but still looks really pretty.

NOTD 67 – Lush Lacquer <3

Salt and Pepa’s here, and we’re in  effect,

Want you to push it, babe

Coolin’ by day then at night working up a sweat

C’mon girls, let’s go show the guys that we know

How to become number one in a hot party show

Now push it
Oh sorry, got a little caught up in the moment 😀 It’s Friday woot woot! and I have for you my very first Indie polish.  I purchased two minis from Lush Lacquer, and the one I am showing you today is Salt n’ Peppa, hence the rambling lyrics above. (I honestly don’t know if they meant this literally salt and pepper or The Salt N’ Peppa, but of course that is the first thing that comes to my mind!) I have to say I am so mad at myself for buying the minis rather than the full size bottle! I absolutely LOVE this glitter and now I will be afraid to use it all, I must buy a full size very soon! The formula is flawless, it’s a clear with silver glitter, shimmer specks, white and black dotted glitters, black and white hexagonal glitter flakes, white and black rectangular flakes, and white and black long glitters. I only used one coat over “Julep- Kelly” and I LOVE how it turned out! “Kelly” is like the perfect pink/nude for this polish. Next time I might do it over a brighter color, maybe the “OPI – Did it on em” that might be fun ❤

Without further ado, here is one coat “Lush Lacquer – Salt n’ Pepa” atop two coats of “Julep – Kelly” topped off with “Seche Vite”

So what do you think of this glitter? And my color combo? Do you own any Lush Lacquers, if so, what is your favorite that I should try next?

PS. sorry if you will now be singing Salt N’ Peppa in your head all day now, I have been humming it since I started the blog post and it won’t leave 😀

NOTD 47 – A Lucky Duck named Ziggy

This is the second mani that I have done recently with greens, pattern? hmm… I used “Orly – Lucky Duck” (2 coats) and topped it with “Urban Decay – Ziggy”. This top coat is a gold, purple/pink, green and blue glitter and unlike a lot of glitters, I only needed one coat of SV, the glitter did not eat the top coat which is good 😀

This is a picture from Temptalia.com of Ziggy by itself. This is probably 2-3 coats.

I did only the one coat over Lucky Duck

Then here is one more picture a little close to see the full effect of the Ziggy glitter.
