Party Rockin

Good morning all!!!

My contest will be ending soon!!! So please enter if you haven't already!!! You can find the post HERE!

Today I have a gorgeous manicure to share with you all! I used an unnamed Hot Topic polish and Lush Lacquer's Party Rockin. I love love love the colors in Lush Lacquer's glitter polish!

Here's what I did:
1 coat Seche Retain
1 coat Gelous
2 coats Hot Topic polish
1 coat Party Rockin
1 coat Seche Vite

The Hot Topic polish was a bit of a pain to work with. The consistency is great, but while applying it, it creates bald spots on itself. So I sort of had to goop it on. Other than that, I really do like this polish. It is a nice dark purple with lots of shimmer that changes from purple to blue. It really is gorgeous. I'm in love with the bottle too. I love me some skulls.

Lush Lacquer is one of my favorite indie polish companies. I love all their polish, and I have never had a single problem with them! The shipping to get to you does take a little while, but trust me, it is WORTH the wait!!! They retail at $8.75 a 15ml bottle. Which is very reasonable, considering the quality you are getting! The polish always glides on like butter. I never have to fish for any glitters, nor do I ever have clumping problems with the glitter. I never have to adjust the glitter on the nail! All I do is paint and go. Seriously.

Party Rockin is a gorgeous polish that is LOADED with glitter. There are smaller glitters, medium sized hex glitters, and bar glitters. The color combination is to die for. It is bright and summery. I decided to pair it with purple to really bring out the blues, oranges, and yellow/golds. I know this polish would look amazing on blacks, pinks, and greens! I can't wait to try this glitter with other colors! I also can't wait to try a jelly sandwich!

You can find Lush Lacquer's Etsy shop HERE! I really suggest checking out what they have to offer! They never disappoint! They have great customer service, and once you do receive your package, you will be shocked that this is an indie polish seller. Their quality is very very professional!!!

I hope you all enjoy this manicure as much as I do!

Do you own any Lush Lacquer products? What do you think about them? Have you ever bought Hot Topic polish? Did you have the same problem I did?

Until next time...

Punch Me Purple

Good afternoon!!! I have a new manicure to share with you all! (FINALLY!)

All of my nails broke into extremely ugly stubs, and have just now grown out enough (on my left hand...of course.) for me to post photos without me being crazy embarrassed. So here we go!

Here's what I did:
A coat of Sally Hansen's Smooth and Strong Base Coat
A coat of Orly's Tough Cookie
Two coats of Wet 'n Wild's Silvivor
Two coats of Daring Digits Punch Me Purple
A coat of Seche Vite

I love this combo. As always, I love Wet 'n Wild's Silvivor. The application is amazing. And it only takes two thin coats to become opaque. LOVE this polish!

Daring Digits' Punch Me Purple is a mixture of small purple holographic glitters, medium sized purple hexes, and small white glitters. It applies beautifully, and the holo glitters are divine! I love the shade of purple, and what is so great about this polish is it could literally go over anything! I cannot wait to try it over black!!! I did have to play around with the larger glitters to get them where I wanted them, but that's something I've had to do with any brand of larger glitters. So no complaints here! I have purchased two other Daring Digits polishes, and I can NOT wait to try them out!!! I am SO impressed with this indie seller!!

Right now, Daring Digits' Etsy shop is on vacation, but I believe she will be back tonight at 8pm Mountain time. So go buy some polish from this amazing artist! You can find her shop HERE!!!

What do you all think about this polish? I can't wait to try it in a jelly!!

Boy, it feels so good to be back! I am so excited to be getting back into the swing of things again, and for my life to slow down just a tad. I look forward to your feedback!!!

Until next time...
