Essie She's Picture Perfect with flakies

Picture perfect indeed, this nail polish is so gorgeous.  If you love lilac, lavender purples you need this, the application is so easy and the drying time is very nice for an Essie.  I think this will be my go to light purple from now on, it used to be Ulta Duty Free Shopping Spree, but now I'm loving this blue toned version even better.  This is the last post before I go on vacation tomorrow, I'm going to miss you all *hugs*

Layering Order:
2 coats Essie She's Picture Perfect
2 coats Big Universo Efeito Flocado Espectral

Nicole Peach Paradise a beautiful peach jelly

What a coincidence, yesterday I showed you a nail polish with paradise in the name also, I guess my mind is set to vacation mode already ;)  I recently found this retired Nicole forgotten in the corner of a Beauty Supply shelf.  So glad I took it home with me, I knew it was a jelly just by looking at the bottle (no swatches online, so I took a chance here) it's so lovely.  The application is not the easiest, but the color is perfection, so subtle and girly.  My search for the perfect peach jelly is over.

Layering Order:
2 coats Nicole by OPI Peach Paradise
1 coat Milani Jewel FX 582 Teal
1 coat Glitter Tamer
no basecoat or topcoat in these pictures.

Claire's Paradise and OPI Teenage Dream are a great pair for Summer

Wow this orange nail polish is amazing, I'm seriously impressed.  My pictures do not do it justice.  First of all it's neon, in the sun it really glows, secondly great application and coverage.  Best of all, which was impossible to capture in pictures, it had a blue micro-shimmer that makes it unique.  I topped it with an untried glitter from last summer and it was a great combination for the season.

Anna Sui 101 a very *very* sparce blue glitter

The only reason I bought this was because it had round glitter in it (which is a bit hard to find) and since it was Anna Sui, I thought it was going to be along the lines of this one, but it was a bit disappointing.  The glitter is so sparse, almost nonexistent.  But at least, I know that posts like these help people decide what to get, and what not to get, so here are the pictures.

Layering Order:
2 coats Love & Beauty no name light blue
2 coats Anna Sui 101

Antique nails

Ok I had writer's block and couldn't come up with a title, I admit it, I suffer from it sometimes, but I don't let it bother me too much.  It's a new look for me, it's one of those days when I think of a layering combination and it was better than I expected, it translated very well on the nails (and the pictures).  If you look at this you would think it's an indie nail polish, right? but both of these are readily available.  Which reminds me, I should do an Indie week, probably when I come back, please remind me <3

Layering Order:
2 coats OPI Number One Nemesis
2 coats Spoiled Jewelery Heist

Sally Hansen Multi-Faceted, a nice black glitter

I think this one is limited edition, because I haven't seen it in the regular display.  The formula is a bit watery, like the Spoiled nail polishes, but if you dab it's easier.

Layering Order:
2 coats Sote Style Charmosa
2 coats Sally Hansen Diamond Strength 503 Multi-Faceted
1 coat Glitter Tamer

Picture Polish Mask-a-rade is a must have for glitter lovers

This glitter is just breathtaking.  From the bottle it doesn't look like it would be much different from other glitters, but once applied it's magical.  I highly recommend you wear it over dark nail polish though, because I tried this over white, and it looked like I had tiny ants on my nails.  The color shifting effect is amazing.  If you love glitter, you need this!

Layering Order:
3 coats Zoya Mimi
2 coats Picture Polish Mask-a-rade
