OPI ColorPaints Melted Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello readers,
Today I have a mani I did playing with some shades from the OPI ColorPaints collection.  I started out with a base of ILNP First Class, a flecked silver holo.  I then layered blocks of sheer colour using OPI Purple Perspective, Turquoise Aesthetic and Primarily Yellow.  I added all the sheer colours to each nail a once so that the boundaries were easier to blend together.  Finally I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  Here's the final look.  It reminds me of stained glass but without the defined colour boundaries.

ILNP First Class Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a polish from the ILNP Fall 2015 collection to show you.  I try to restict my holo purchases since I tend to buy very similar shades over and over, but the silver flakies in this one made it a little different from the rest.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette Swatches & Review

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette

Hello readers,
When the 2015 Holiday Hourglass Edit Palette was announced I knew that I was going to have to try it out.  Highlighter and blush are on my face pretty much every day and I'd heard such good things about the Hourglass ambient light powders in the past so I figured this was a great way to try out a variety of shades at once.

Blue and Metallic Nude Abstract Swirls Stamped Nail Art

Hello readers,
I have a quick nail art post for you guys today.  I was ready to switch things up but my Picture Polish Big Bang mani hadn't chipped yet.  I gave it a new look by stamping a flowy abstract design on top using Picture Polish Metallic Mush, a metallic nude, and Born Pretty Store plate BP 10.  I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  Here's the final look in daylight spectrum lighting.

Birchbox Canada October 2015 Unboxing & Review

Hello readers,
My October Birchbox arrived in the mail yesterday.  This month we knew we were getting either an Eyeko or W3LL People mascara.  Since I'd already received the W3LL people one earlier this year, I knew the Eyeko was likely to be included.  Let's see what else joined it in the box.

Essie Silk Watercolors

Hello readers, Today I have some nail art I did using a selection of shades from the Essie Silk Watercolors collection. Sure, it may be fall outside... but that means it's spring somewhere in the world and my pastel nails can just pretend to be there right now.

Femme Fatale Lunar Halo Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have an older Femme Fatale polish to share with you.  I ended up using it as a topper on whim when I wanted to update my mani but didn't have time to start from scratch.  The results were magical.

Elevation Polish Grotte et Cascade Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Today I have a polish I got during Elevation Polish's labor day sale. I will fully admit that brown is not a polish colour I usually go for. The flecked shimmer plus sale price convinced me to give this one a try.
