Formula X for Sephora Turbulent


Hello!  A while back I picked up a few of the new Formula X for Sephora polishes.  So far the ones I've tried have been really, really nice.  Today I have Turbulent to show you.  This is a very indie-ish glitter topcoat made up of different sizes of back and turquoise glitters.  I layered it over China Glaze Naked but I think it needs a brighter pink or a purple would be nice too.  In real life my nails just kinda looked dirty.  The quality of this polish though is outstanding.  This is one single coat.  No fishing, no placing, no dabbing for glitter.  Everything is laying down nice and smooth.

Have you tried any of these polishes yet?  I definitely plan on getting more.  There are so many choices of color and finish.

Have a great day!

Different Dimension Black Dahlia

Hey all!  It's been a while huh?  Today's gorgeous polish is Different Dimension Black Dahlia.  This polish is so outstanding.  Two coats made this perfect.  Gray holoish goodness with pretty glitter thrown in.  I bet you could layer this over black and it would look awesome.  The first two pictures were taken in the sun and the last one is a shade picture to try and show you some of the glitter.

I hope you all had a great holiday yesterday.  I'm hoping to blog more regularly in the future now that birthday/holiday season is over.

Until next time...

Different Dimension Mistle-Toad

Hey everyone!  Happy Thursday.  Today I have a quickie post featuring the drool worthy Different Dimension Mistle-Toad, a green holo with pink shimmer.  Hot damn this is an amazing polish!  It applied like a dream.  Two coats and it was perfect.

I know this is a lot of pictures but really this polish rocks and I couldn't narrow it down.  I'd love to see this polish without the holo (don't throw things at me) because the pink shimmer is gorgeous.  Have a great day everyone!

Holiday Mani #1


Hey all!  Tonight I have a Christmas mani, hopefully the first of a few holiday manis but we shall see.  I started with a base of Zoya Trixie then added dots using Zoya Elisa and SinfulColors Pine Away.  For my accent nail I used Julie G Mistletoe, a textured polish from their Gumdrop line, and tape.  Then added a few colored dots to be ornaments.  I got a little impatient with my topcoat though and smeared some of the dots.


I hope you're all having a great night.  I'd love to see your holiday manis.  Feel free to drop them by my facebook page.  Until next time...

SinfulColors Mirror Metallics Review

Hello!  I have four polishes from the SinfulColors Mirror Metallics collection to show you today.  I love, love, love foils so I was super excited to be able to review some of these.  I would say foil finishes are my second favorite right after a good glass fleck.  I'm going to start by saying the formula on these was really, really good.  Plus they were all the same in formula and application.  I appreciate the consistency that this collection has to offer.  Each one was smooth and perfectly opaque in two coats.  Each color has a sun picture and a shade picture.

First up is Triple Platinum.

Next is Purple Heart.

This is Pine Away.

Lastly this is Blue Steel.

I'd say my favorites are Pine Away and Triple Platinum.  Pine Away has already been used again in a Christmas themed pedi.  Also in this collection are a silver, gold and a red polish.  I'll be out hunting for the red tomorrow.  You can find SinfulColors on facebook here.  While I don't have a twitter account you can find them on twitter @SinfulColors_NP.  I hope you all have a great day!

Until next time...


*These polishes were sent to me by the pr company in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are 100% mine.*

Major Nail Fail

Hey all!  Earlier this week I promised you a look at my gradient gone wrong.  In my head this mani was gorgeous.  On my nails, not so much.  I started with China Glaze Glistening Snow.  Such an amazing polish all on it's own.  Then I used China Glaze Put a Bow On It to do a quick gradient.  I really thought this would work since Bow is a micro glitter with a clear base but oh no.  Instead it looks like I'm bleeding from my cuticles.  Oh well!  Two pretty polishes that just shouldn't be worn this way.  Next time I'll just do an accent nail.

I hope you all have a great Friday.  Until next time...

Chevron Stamping

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  It has been forever since I've done any stamping.  If you follow along over on my facebook page you saw my junior high chic, crazy stamping practice mani.  I was testing out colors and plates.  In the end I decided to use Color Club Over the Moon to stamp a chevron print on Zoya Ibiza.  I'm obviously not the best stamper.  My chevrons are a bit wonky but I really don't care.  This was just so much fun to wear.  This ended up being my Thanksgiving mani.  Not festive at all but super cute.

This makes me want to stamp every mani with a holo.  So much fun!  I hope you all have a great day.

China Glaze That's Tree-mendous

 Hello!  Today I have another polish from the China Glaze 2013 holiday collection, That's Tree-mendous.  Goofy name for a fun, sparkly polish.  This is a micro glitter polish that built up nicely in three coats.  This really reminded me of Glistening Snow (a big favorite of mine) from last year's holiday collection, as far as formula and application.  It was a bit harder to remove but nothing terribly hard.

I plan to wear this again and do a gold gradient, maybe with Zoya Ziv.  I think it will look amazing.  Although I have a major gradient fail to show you later this week that may have you questioning my gradient skills ;)

Until next time my lovely readers...
