I Love Nail Polish A Nice Chianti

Hey guys! Happy Saturday!! What are you up to today??

Green and purple makes me think of the Hulk, but that's okay because the Hulk is awesome and so are these nails. 

I Love Nail Polish A Nice Chianti is a dark purple glitter in a clear base. One coat over SinfulShine In The Limelight. Photos with topcoat. 

Do you like purple and green together?? How do you feel about gradients?

Recent NOTD: OPI Honey Ryder and China Glaze Keepin' It Teal

Hey guys!

Have any fun plans for the weekend?? Not me, just hanging out and probably going to go through clothes and house things in preparation for a a garage sale! Fun times :-)

Here's a recent NOTD for ya! 

I used 2 coats OPI Honey Ryder on my index and pinky fingers, and 4 coats of China Glaze Keepin' It Teal on the thumb, middle and ring fingers. 

I really like the gold and teal together and I am coming around to these textured polishes. 

What do you think of this combo? How do you feel about the texture trend??

KraftyGurl Stone Heart and Totally Neon

Hey guys!

Today I have two polishes from a new to me Etsy brand, KraftyGurl polishes! 

I used China Glaze You Drive Me Coconuts as my base color. 

On my index and middle finger, I used Stone Heart, a black and white glitter with hexes and black heart glitters. The hearts were hiding a little bit; I actually forgot to look for them at first and had to go back and add a heart after I applied the second glitter! Ha. This was about one coat of glitter, plus some fishing for the heart. 

On the ring and pinky, I used Totally Neon, a white, pink, blue, green, yellow, pink matte glitter. I love this. It's totally 80's, which is perfectly fine with me :-) One coat.

 You can purchase full sized bottles of KraftyGurl polishes from  her Etsy site for only $6.50! Check them out!

Darling Diva Polish Oblitus

Hey guys!

This beauty was included in a recent order from Darling Diva Polish. This is a LE holo that she lost the recipe to, so whoohoo for LE holos! LOL 

Oblitus is a pinky purple holo. I swatched this at night so I didn't have any sunlight but these photos are taken under a table lamp and are still pretty awesome looking. I used 3 coats, no top coat. 


How do you feel about holos?

Lac Attack Beach Daze Collection!

Hey guys!

My Sparkle Short Soul Sista, Ana, recently put out a contest for a fan to create a collection! The winner was Beach Daze and I have 4 of the 5 polishes from that collection for you! 

Sand Goddess, a matte micro glitter with pink, black, white, blue, yellow, and maybe green (?) glitters. 1 coat over SOPI Cab Fare. 

Magic Below The Water is a beautiful blue jelly, with blue and teal hexes. 2.... or maybe 3 coats?? Sorry, I'm terrible!

Sunset in Paradise is a lilac holo. This was 2 coats.

With flash:

 Endless Summer is a yellow, pink, blue, green hex glitter. This was 1 coat over Sunset in Paradise.

One thing that I love... attention to detail (as I forget to take notes most of the time I swatch... ack. Anyway...).

It drives me nuts when labels aren't facing the same way and I feel like Ana knows this and affixes her labels in the same direction just for me.

THE BOTTLES AND LABELS LINE UP! This makes me so happy!

Zoya Fall Pixie Dusts!

Hey guys!

Today I have the Zoya Fall Pixie Dust Collection to share with you! I'm sure you've seen these all over the place but hey, I just had a baby... I'm a little behind! LOL 

I wasn't too crazy about the whole texture trend when these started rolling out but I have to say that the Zoya Pixie Dusts are amazing. So shimmery and beautiful! I'm going to keep this short and sweet, as I hear my little princess stirring! 

These were all 2 coats and I didn't have any issues with any of these. I didn't use a top coat for any of the swatches. 


Dhara, one of my favorites! I just love this color orange with the golden shimmer! 




Chita, which is what I wore for about 2 weeks because I went into labor wearing this and didn't have time to remove :-)

So what do you think? Do you love the texture polishes? Did you pick up any from this collection? What are your favorites??

Talk to you soon!

As you know, I'm obsessed with circle glitter. I don't know what it is, but it just makes me so happy!

Cherry Blossoms is a milky based polish with green, purple, and pink glitters. This is 2 coats over OPI MBSW. I did use a topcoat for these photos. 

Do you LOE circle glitter??!
