My Favourite Polish: Glitter Edition

Hey everyone!

My second edition of the 'My Favourite Polish' series. Today is going to be focused on... GLITTER! Now, to me, my subsection of "glitter" means that I need to put these polish on top of other polish.. Some polish contains glitter with a fairly opaque base and is okay without a base colour first.. so.. that is how I determine whether a polish is a glitter or not.. Yup.

Here are my top 10 favourite glitter polish - in no particular order!


OPI Glow Up Already - I have never actually posted a photo of anything I have done with this gem. How awful! It is a full out glitter gem with mostly greenish-gold toned glitter. And it is wonderful! I did like most of the glitters released in the Burlesque collection - but this one is definitely my favourite!

China Glaze CG In The City - Another polish that I haven't really posted using.. what is going on with me?! This is purple-y and silver-y and exquisite.

OPI Teenage Dream - All right. Another that I didn't post any looks using. WOW! This is making me seem like a complete fraud. I promise that I really do love these glitters! This one is pretty and pink and the name of my favourite Katy Perry song. I need to get to work and post up some manis using these gems, and FAST!

Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals - Purple and fuchsia glitter. Enough said.

Nails Inc Connaught Square -  This is a perfect glitter for galaxy nails! It is 3D and gorgeous! That is all.


OPI Crown Me Already! - Ok. When I think "glitter", I always think of silver glitter. This is the ultimate silver or silver on silver. It was the polish that I based my New Years nails on last year. Very pretty and very silver!

China Glaze Techno - This is another I don't have any posting for.. What have I been doing? Not taking photos for you all. This is AWFUL! Again, silver glitter with holographic silver glitter. It is just very, very pretty! A great addition to my collection.

China Glaze Snow Globe - Aptly named. It is seriously like the snow globe flakies.. perfect for Christmas themed manis or just for the 'something extra' touch to a single polish mani.

Nail Inc Bloomsbury Square - This is the other 'perfect for galaxy nails' glitter. I love it for that reason alone.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle - This is going to sound strange, and I feel weird writing it - but this is a delicate glitter. Two words that shouldn't really go together. I mean, glitter, to me, usually means IN YOUR FACE! But this one is so subdued and innocent. It really is perfection.

That is it for my top 10 glitter polish - what is your favourite glitter polish? Or even your top 10?! I'd love to know!!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
