Hello!  I have a quickie post for you today.  Each month Stardust and Rica get together and put out the GNOME box.  It's two polishes with fun gnome names.  Sometimes there's an extra.  This particular month's was a sample size cuticle balm from Stardust.  Stardust The Gnome Files is a gorgeous purple holo, perfect in two coats.  My accent nail is Rica Sherlock Gnomes, four coats.  I will layer Sherlock Gnomes next time over a white for sure.

Barielle Glitter Mania

*Press Sample*

Hey all!  Today I have a five piece collection from Barielle for spring.  Glitter Mania is made up of five glitter toppers.  I'm just going to jump right in.  As per normal each polish has a sun photo and a shade photo.  In most of these I prefer the shade one because it makes the glitter easier to see.

Up first is Barielle Confetti.  This is one coat over Julep Misti with top coat.  You can see where it wanted to bunch up on me a bit on my pinky.  Just use a light touch and it will be fine.

Next is Barielle Gemstones.  This one coat over Barielle Tres Chic with top coat.

This is Barielle Mermaid's Fin over Barielle Sky's the Limit.  Again just one coat and top coat.

Here is Barielle Princess Pink over Barielle Blue Capri.  This is one coat with top coat.  I did have to add some thinner to this polish.  It was super thick.  The thinner worked though and it was easy to apply after that.

Lastly is Barielle Orange Flame over Barielle My City Apartment.  This is one coat and top coat.

So there you have it.  My favorites are Mermaid's Fin and Gemstones.  I see lots of different layering combos in my future with those.  You can find these polishes at barielle.com.  Also give them a like on facebook to keep up with all the latest offerings.  

Thanks for reading!

Hello!  I have two gorgeous Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer (BEGL) polishes for you today.  I just got these in the mail day before yesterday and just couldn't wait to put them on.  The green is Queen Lime Rose Zinnia.  It's a light green with a pink shimmer.  I did need three coats to even it out.  Love, love, love this!  My accent nail is BEGL Kaffir Lily.  Look at that holo!  This was perfect in two coats.

This mani is just perfect for spring.  I really wanted to do some stamping but I'm cleaning houses tomorrow and it would just be a wasted effort.  Thanks for stopping by!
