Celestial Blood Moon Rising

Yay! second post of the week.  Baby steps.

This is a vampy that I would have never thought of buying.  Thankfully, my friend K saw the potential in it, and got one for me.  I cannot describe how beautiful and subtle the holographic effect is on this one.  The finish is exquisite, it is almost like coating your nails in cherry marmalade, so glossy!

Lacquistry Tall, Dork & Handsome

Back from a long hiatus!  I am going to try my best to take post more pics.  I usually take them with my phone, and then delete them, because I run out of space.  Oh well.  I received this as an Xmas present last year, and I am surprised how much I love it.  This is literally 1 coat.  Very dark and shimmery.  Love it.  I had posted this on my IG, and I am going to try to keep up with both the blog and that media outlet.  Thank you for reading <3

OPI DS Charcoal is a shifty greyish green

If it wasn't for my friends who are in the know, I probably would never find out about new colors coming out.  I'm so out if the loop, ever since I decided to focus more on my career.  Thankfully, I got this gorgeous duochrome just in time for the Fall season. I'm loving greys lately, and this one is no exception.  It was the perfect color to go with my new nubs.

Still rocking those Sephora Formula X Liquid Crystals

I really love these and I want to collect them all.  I've posted a couple already.  Here are two that I love, because they both shift.  Moon Glow was super sheer, so I have to wear it over a grey creme.  Beacon was a 3-coater and I received so many compliments when I was wearing it.  This last one was another Bday gift from another awesome friend <3

Burberry Hydrangea Pink

I'm kind of impressed with the formula and finish of this Burberry.  I say that because I haven't heard too much about this brand, as it pertains to cosmetics.  Now I want to try their make up too.  This was pretty much like a Dior, very creamy, glossy and saturated.  This was a Bday gift from my dear friend, and Inreally cherish it.  I would have never thought of buying this, but I love it.

Glitter over neon

When my friend Sue came to visit, I had to wear green.  It's a rare sight, I almost never wear green.  Since she also loves glitter and she gave me this Models Own, I thought that there wasn't a better way to show my appreciation.  I forgot how fun it is to do a glitter bomb mani.  Lately, I am not wearing heavy glitter as often, because of the removal.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers in Goldwork are a poor quality product

I don't like doing bad reviews, but I'm always honest, and these are awful.  First of all, they are not easy to apply or peel off from the plastic that they come in.  If you guys have read this blog for a while, you know that I have experience with nail strips, from Sally Hansen brand to Incoco.  The SH original ones that come in the small box with the file and the cuticle pusher are ok, but this product is just mediocre.

Trust me, it has nothing to do with the fact that I wore them over my bare nails, because I actually liked this radical look.  They are just lumpy and they don't stretch at all to take the shape of the nails. As a bonus, my thumb fell off after only 30 minutes of wearing them, and I wasn't even doing housework, just driving.  It just didn't adhere.  They just get caught on everything, especially clothes.  I easily took off all of them within the hour, by peeling them, because they were never fully suck to the nails, so I guess that was a plus.  They felt uncomfortable and I didn't want to spend one more second with them.  Sorry Sally Hansen.

Not much really positive to say about them.  The color was good.  They have a texture to them, so if you like texture and have flat nails, you might want to try them.
