Hi everyone! How are you all? I’ve been better personally… The past couple of days have been bad to say the least. Two days ago I had to go to the ER for severe Endometriosis pain and fainting/vomiting from it (and on top of that they said I had a UTI)… And then yesterday I had a pounding migraine. Today my body just feels drained. I finally felt well enough to change out my manicure and try out one of my new ILNP Polishes from their fall collection.
ILNP’s website says that Close Knit is “Packed with an array of over-sized ultra-holographic micro-flakes for an incredible sparkle and carefully accented with a striking gold shimmer, Close Knit is a perfectly warm and refined pink beauty that packs a serious punch!” I agree with everything that description says! It was opaque in 2 coats and dried in decent time. Check out my pictures below!
What do you think of this color? I’m very tempted to place another order on their website… There were a couple more from the fall collection that was on my wishlist. Thanks so much for reading today and I’ll talk to you soon!
Hi all! I’m still sifting through my untried polishes and this shade was one of them. I think I might’ve used this shade in a reverse stamping manicure, but I can’t remember for sure lol. Superior is a beautiful dusty blue and unfortunately I can’t find it in stock anywhere!!! I’ve looked on Color4nails, (where I usually buy my Picture Polishes from) Picture Polish’s Website, and Live Love Polish. I hope they haven’t discontinued it. I put this manicure on a day ago and I already have a chip on my pointer finger on my left hand. I’m so disappointed 😦 It probably happened because I’ve been doing dishes without my gloves.
Such a beautiful blue! A little update on what’s been going on in my life….
I’ve been having visual hallucinations at night… One night I thought our cat was hanging from our chandelier. Once I came around (I was waking from dozing off) I realized that nothing was hanging on the chandelier. Am I going crazy? LOL! I don’t know if insomnia can cause hallucinations or not… or if it’s the polish fumes. I have got to cut back on polishing my nails. I keep telling myself that I’ll wear a manicure for a week, but I end up switching it out the next day. I find comfort and relaxation by painting my nails and it helps to relieve anxiety, but the fumes cannot be good at all to inhale… Especially when I swatch a bunch of polishes all together in one sitting. Hubby bought me a mask (it’s like a painters mask) and a fan to keep air circulating but I keep forgetting to use them. I’m not sure if the painters mask even keeps out the fumes very well… I need to find a better one. Any suggestions?
Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
Hi everyone! I wanted some fun and colorful nail art so I decided to make some stamping decals using MoYou London’s Explorer 03 stamping plate. I really love how bold the lines are and how easy it is to fill in where you want to. For the colors I used Picture Polish Salt Water and Rebelle. Also, for my ring and middle finger I used Essie Birthday Suit (it’s a milky sheer polish). I love how it all came together! I’m thinking about making a video on how I done this later.
What do you think of this look? I personally love the negative space effect! I have more reviews to do for Beauty Big Bangs and Born Pretty Store, and also Pahlish has some more polishes coming to me lol. I’m going to be so busy!!! Thank you all so much for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
Hi all! I just thought I’d share what I’ll be wearing for the next week (or longer). I wanted to try out some Born Pretty Store gel polishes so I bought some a while back. I bought the base coat, white and black, and the top coat. I also used an OPI Gel polish for my ring and pinky finger. The shade is called Bare to be Different. For the flowers I used UR Sugar gel polishes (I bought them off of Ebay) and acrylic paints. Thanks for looking!
I really love how this manicure turned out! Let me know what you think down in the comments! 🙂
Hi all! Long time no see! I took a little break from blogging to spend time with my kiddos. Now that they’re back in school I can get back with the program 🙂 Pahlish is releasing some real beauties Sunday August 13th at 7 PM CST. Four of the colors are from the Afternoon Tea collection, and the other six don’t really have a theme. Let’s dive on into the pictures shall we?
First up we have Thistle. This is definitely one of my favorites of the collection, and I think you’ll see why! This polish is described as a thistle blue-grey cream with multichrome red shimmer. Uhh yeah, the multichrome red shimmers are what won my heart! I used two coats.
Next we have Borealis. This polish is described as a deep bruised plum with duochrome teal shimmer. Unfortunately my camera didn’t detect the duochrome nature of the polish, but trust me it’s there. I used two coats for the pictures below.
Gilded Olive… What a beauty you are. This polish is described as a burnished olive gold foil. At first I wasn’t sure how this shade would look on me, but in the end I love it! I used two coats for opacity!
Next is Chocolate Diamond. This beauty is described as a bronze foil. I used two easy coats for opacity.
Daughters of Triton is next up, and this polish is described as an aqua holographic with glowing purple shimmer and ultrachrome flakies. I’m a huge fan of blue polishes, so this one didn’t disappoint! I used two coats for the pictures!
Next is Ursula which is described as a soft garnet holographic with glowing purple shimmer and ultrachrome flakes. This one is a stunner! I used two coats.
Now we’re moving on to the Afternoon Tea collection. I want to go ahead and mention that I used three coats for all of the polishes down below. There are four polishes to talk about so let’s go right on into the first one!
Chamomile is described as a soft porcelain blue cream with delicate red shimmer and red ultrachrome flakes. Such a soft and pretty shade! It took three thin coats to reach opacity.
Jasmine is up next and this polish is described as a soft mint green cream with teal shimmer and teal ultrachrome flakes. Again, a beauty! I used three coats.
Earl Grey is described as a soft greige cream with red shimmer and copper ultrachrome flakes. I used three thin coats for opacity. Also I wanted to make mention that Earl Grey tea is one of my favorite teas!!! 🙂
And last but not least we have Moroccan Rosebud. This beauty is described as a soft blush cream with pink shimmer and dark purple ultrachrome flakes. Also I wanted to mention that this polish dries a tad darker than what’s in the bottle. I used three thin coats.
Well, there you have it! What do you think of these new polishes releasing from Pahlish? I think Shannon done an amazing job (as always) creating such a unique and fun collection for August. And while I love summer, I’m kind of ready for fall. I love the deep colors and jewel toned polishes that come out around that time… So bring it on! Again, if you’re interested in any of these beautiful shades, they’ll be released Sunday August 13th at 7 PM CST on Pahlish’s website. Be sure to check out their Instagram and Facebook page as well! Have a great weekend!
Hi there everyone! I just thought I’d share what I’ll be wearing for the fourth! I wanted to do some nail art, but this shade is way too pretty to cover up. ILNP Good Vibes is a Bright Cobalt Blue holographic. I used 2 thick coats for the pictures below!
What do you think of this shade? Isn’t it perfect for summer and the 4th of July? Thanks for reading today and I”ll talk to you all soon!
