Pretty Serious Emma Louise

Hey guys! Happy Weekend! Any fun plans?? I'm going to a birthday party today and it's supposed to be about 56 degrees outside. This is heavenly news for me. I am so cold! LOL

Pretty Serious Emma Louise is a Limited Edition polish that is now sold out. Sorry. I didn't get to post this in time for anyone to buy, if they wanted. Wah wah.

This was 3 coats of Emma Louise, a purple polish with green glitter. I thought I would love this a lot more... I guess I was hoping the green would be a lot more visible. Oh well, it's still really pretty.

Talk to you soon!

Zoya Bijou and Different Dimension Bazinga

Hey guys! A very Good Friday to you!

Zoya Bijou is a sheer pink flecked polish. This was 3 coats. This is usually a little too sheer for me, but it's still a very pretty color. 

Different Dimension Bazinga is a red and yellow glitter with hexes and microglitter. I quite liked it with the pink base coat! 2 coats of Bazinga. 

Talk to you soon!

Urban Outfitters Silver Holo

Hey guys!

Don't forget to check out Sarah and Amanda's posts! 

For today's March Untrieds challenge, I have Urban Outfitters Silver Holo. I don't have an UO near me so I took advantage of picking up a few polishes the last time I was able to shop at one.

This is a crazy rainbow holo, but there wasn't any sunlight (because Michigan doesn't really get a lot of that in the winter) so trust me when I say that this is definitely a linear holo! I used 3 thin coats for this swatch. It had a nice formula, not thick and easy to work with.

Talk to you soon!

A England Swatches

Hey guys!

 A few A England beauties to share today!

Avalon, a bright purple creme. As always with A England, this was pretty much perfection to apply. I could have used 1 coat, but I did two.

 Holy Grail (the old version). I love this color but I think it makes my hands look weird. Wah wah. It was a breeze to apply, however... 2 coats.

Talk to you soon!

Kiko #400

Hey Guys! Happy Untrieds Day! So gee Sarah and Amanda's posts!

Holo! Ha, get it? Holo? Hello? I'm funny. Anyway, this awesome holo was sent to my via Saira; she also sent the other 3 super fantastic Kiko holo's!

The first one I'm showing you is Kiko #400, a GORGEOUS dark gray linear holo. Ermahgerd, so beautiful! This applied like butter, too. 2 easy coats, no dragging... LOVE IT! And like the glitter, I can't edit or remove holo pictures so you get to see them all! 

I'm dead from all that saxy holo!!

Talk to you soon!

Catrice Swatches

Hey guys! How was your weekend? Mine was good, too quick but that's pretty standard :-p

So I have been totally flaking on my Pinterest nails, as I forgot again!! I blame the baby :-p Maybe I need a weekly reminder. Who wants to be my challenge nails alarm clock? LOL I promise promise promise to have some up next week! In the meantime, go check out Amanda's nails!

I have accumulated quite the Catrice collection and figured if I don't do a multi-color post, I'm never going to get through all of these pictures! LOL So you get 3 lovely Catrice's today.

I used 2 coats for all of these swatches, with no formula issues. 

First, Be Aztec!, a sort of army green with golden shimmer. The shimmer was more visible in person than I could capture.

I added one coat of Orly 24 Carat (which I decanted into a bigger bottle because I didn't want to use it as a striping brush, lol.)

Catrice Forget-Me-Not! is a purple foil, which I am usually not crazy about but this wasn't like most foils. Actually, it might not even be a foil. I'm terrible at that.. But I'm calling it a foil :-p I love the deep purple color!

Finally,  Big City Life, which is my favorite of these three. I ADORE this color teal and it is just about formula perfection. OMG LOOK AT HOW SHINY AND PRETTY!

Do you have any Catrice polishes? What are your favorites?

Random Spam

Hey guys! HAPPY FRIDAY! What are you up to this weekend? Tonight, I have a girls night dinner and then I think a few errands to run this weekend. Normal stuff for me :-)

I have a little bit of random spam for you today!

First, Essence You Rock King Of Mints. This color is very pretty but it's terribly thin... I used 3 coats here and you can see how patchy it is. Wah wah.. 

LA Girls Glitter Addict Uninhibited over China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. I was pretty much obsessed with this glitter when I first saw it and it's FINALLY MINE!!! LOVE! This is one coat of TUT.

Nails Inc Wardour Mews.  A pinky copper shimmer beauty. I used 3 thin coats here.

March Untrieds: Color Club Halo Hues 2013!

Hey guys!

Today's March untrieds post is a doozy! Lots of pictures so bear with me! And make sure to go visit Sarah and Amanda's posts today! 

Today I have the Color Club Halo Hues 2013 releases for you. As with the last batch of Halo Hues, all the formula's on these were pretty terrific. I didn't use an aqua base for any of them and there was no dragging or anything like that! Whoo! All swatches are 2 coats.

Oh, also, there was no sun when I was swatching these so you get a table lamp. Wahh.

Let's get to it! First up, Kismet! This is a really fun green gold holo.

Next, Cosmic Fate, which is an orange holo... I love this one! 

Next is Miss Bliss, a pink holo. This is very similar to Halo-Graphic from the 2012 holo's but Miss Bliss is a bit more vibrant.

 Eternal Beauty, a deep purple holo.

 Over the Moon, the blue holo from this collection.

And finally, Beyond. I think I just love black holo's the best. They are so sassy! It also seems like this was the strongest holo, but that could be because the base color is so dark.

So! What do you think? Did you get any of the new Halo Hues? What were your favorites?

Talk to you soon!
