Cirque Winter Bloom and Ambrosia

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I was lucky enough to received a few Cirque Polishes from a two different people for Christmas. These first two were from a Secret Santa through a polish blogging group that I'm in on Facebook! Both of these had been on my list for a while so I was so excited to receive these!!

Winter Bloom is a gorgeous minty holographic. It was a little sheer and needed 3 coats to cover completely but oh my goodness.... so stunning.

Ambrosia is an oxblood holographic. This was amazing and covered in 1 coat! ONE COAT! Gasp!

Have you tried Cirque Polishes yet? What is your favorite??

Different Dimension Swatches!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

More swatches from my Polish Purchasing a few weeks back. I purchased 3 from Different Dimension, an indie that I love but somehow don't feature that often.

Hourglass Nebula is a brown jelly with orange to red and green flakies. This was 2 coats!


Butterfly Nebula is a purple jelly with red to green flakies and holo microglitter. This needed 3 coats to cover completely.

Peregrination is "goldenrod yellow" holographic. You probably know how I feel about yellow polish by now: I love it! This had a great formula and covered in two coats.

What is your favorite Different Dimension polish??

Cupcake Polish Swatches!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I recently went a little polish purchasing crazy and have some new polishes to share. You may have already seen these in my Nail Polish Haul, if you follow me on YouTube!

Cupcake Polish is a brand that have some pretty great holo's. I have three to show you today!

Unbe-leaf-able is a dark green holo. This had a really great formula, and covered completely in 1 coat, although I did 2, because that's my habit, lol.

Nut'n Better is a beautiful cocoa brown holo. Another great formula and opaque in 2 coats.

Apple-y Ever After is a fabulous red holo, another that was almost opaque in 1 coat, but I did two.

Have you tried any from Cupcake Polish yet? What are your favorites?

Talk to you soon!

Orly La La Land for Spring 2017 Collection!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

Happy New Year!! Wow.. just wow!

Today I have a SPRING collection! Wow. I am totally okay with Spring because I'm not a winter person but it seems like each season, products start releasing faster and faster!

This is the Orly Spring collection, called La La Land. I really love Orly polishes and have been enjoying the collections they've released in the past few years. And I LOVE the 6 piece collections. Can we just stop with the 12 or 18 piece collections? It's so overwhelming! Anyway, let's get to these polishes!

Head In The Clouds is a pastel pink. I should mention that all of these polishes are pastel and all are quite sheer on the first coat; I would almost venture to call these crelly polishes. This was 3 coats.


Cool in California is a pastel peach. Again, this was 3 coats.


As Seen On TV is pastel purple. This is the only polish that covered in 2 coats.


Forget Me Not is a pale sky blue. Another one that needed 3 coats.


Big City Dreams is a mint green. And yep, 3 coats.


Anything Goes is a an iridescent sheer polish with pink circle glitter and blue star glitter.  You definitely have to place the shaped glitter but it's fairly easy to swirl the brush around and pick up pieces of glitter. I used one coat over each of the polishes, with glitter placement.





To be very honest, I was a tad disappointed with the opacity in these polishes, even though pastels are typically 3 coats. I just thought there were still a few streaks and uneven marks at 3 coats :-/ I do love the colors, however and I always love seeing mainstream polishes using circle glitter!!!

Twinsie Tuesday: Non-Dominant Hand Mani

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

Today we are discussing my worst nightmare, the non-dominant hand manicure. I could lie and say that I take care of my right hand, even though it's never photographed. But that would be a lie and I don't like to lie. My right hand looks like garbage. I am SUPPPPPPPPERRRRRR right handed, so doing anything with my left hand is basically a talent worthy of a medal. This task would not receive that medal.

Sigh.

I used OPI's Oh My Majesty which I will absolutely have to reswatch using the hand that is worth a darn. This was 3 coats.
Everything felt wrong about this... holding the bottle, posing the hand, cleaning up... everything. LOL!

What about you? Are you non-dominant hand challenged like I am??

Talk to you soon!

Round 31 of Bestie Twin Nails with The Little Canvas!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose



We've come to the last installment of Bestie Twin Nails with The Little Canvas for 2016! And uhhhh we may have forgotten to post this earlier so let's be honest, I'm phoning it in for this round LOL!!

We went with a simple glitter and dotticure, perfect for NYE. The polishes I used were Wet n Wild Black Creme, Cirque Never Nude, Halcyon, and Helios.

I applied 2 coats of Wet n Wild Black Creme to my nails, except for the middle nail, which was dressed in 2 coats of Cirque Helios. Then I used Cirque Never Nude and Halcyon for my dots on my ring finger. At first, I wasn't sure about the gold with the nude and rose gold but I really liked it together!

Happy New Year! And be sure to check out Alaina's BTN!

Talk to you soon!
