Smoking Fireworks

Hi lacquerinas and happy Monday to you all. I was really hesitant in posting this mani, but I figured I wouldn't be keeping it real if I didn't post polish jobs that I didn't care for. I had such high hopes for this dark color, but ehh I don't know if it's 100% me; every woman knows what colors do it for her. Here I painted my nails first with China Glaze's "Smoke and Ashes", it is a real Gothic looking color. I purchased this from the clearance rack at Ulta. On my accent nail I used a glitter layover by Kleancolor "Firework", I didn't want to wear all black nails so I figured I'd compliment them with this glitter. It holds a very Christmasy appearance, it has green, red and gold chunky and fine glitters in it; I bet any amount of money it would look so dope layered on those color polishes. Well at least I tried it out, don't know how long this color will stay on my nails....

Miss & Make up

Happy Friday people! Today I did a switch-a-roo, I decided to try the oval nail shape so we shall see how long I keep this look. I've been wanting to try this shape for a while and since I had lots of time today I went ahead and got it done. Plus the fact that my real nails had been severely breaking this week, it pushed me even more to get it done; I like it so far.

I had my nail girl paint my nails (I don't normally let anybody paint them), she used OPI's "elephantastic pink" and then I used Sation's "Miss & Make Up" polish on my middle finger when I got home. I adore this glitter polish because of its hexagon pink shaped glitter and silver foil looking shapes with chin hairs; it also has black glitter shapes mixed into it. I also got this on

Have a good weekend ladies :)

Kiss my A's

Hi ladies, no I'm not being rude to you all, this happens to be the name of the red Sation polish I am wearing. I love their funky names for their polishes. The glitter polish I am using is called "Whirled away" by China Glaze which is from their Cirque De Soleil collection. I had to nab that CG polish once I saw it advertised on Instagram, I purchased it from for 4.00. There's only two polishes from the collection that I like.

I'm kind of late posting this because I did this mani a few days ago.

Purple so purrty....

Hi ladies, today  I have a mani to show you using two polishes by Sation. I've had these polishes for a while and found myself bored while on vacation two weeks ago. In this mani I used nail tape for the first time to do the stripes.  One tip I must give you while using the nail tape is to make sure your polish is completely dry. The nail tape is very efficient, fun and user friendly, I bought like 10 rolls of different colors for $1 and change on ebay. The polish names are Miss Emo Shun All & Tardy Tart.

Mint Candies

Hi ladies, well here we are again, back at Monday! I went ahead & took the liberty of scheduling some posts because I will be occupied with a 2250 word research paper on serial killer John Wayne Gasey, it is due in 2 weeks but I've decided to get the ball and bounce on it.

My mani today is a polish by Candie's I picked up while browsing Kohl's department store. I read on someone's blog that they had a spotting of this polish and I decided to take a tour for myself; I remember Candie's store from back in the day. To be honest with you I didn't see anything spectacular about the colors, I believe I already have the colors that they are offering. I went on a whim and picked up two polishes I know I have the dupe to but I am not positive of their whereabouts. In these pics I am wearing the polish called Mighty Mint. It's a green minty color that reminds me of a lime sorbet color, the satisfied opacity for me is 2 coats. This polish has a pretty good formula which isn't too thick or watery. The brush is a good size and the size/shape of the bottle is cute, I really like the diamond shaped top handle. I picked up 2 polishes that retails at $8 but when I got to the register it rang up $5.60 each so that's a plus for the minus; I believe they are available online also. The glitter polish I used is a polish I've had that I purchased from Ross for 1.99 it's called Cosmetic Arts polish.

Enjoy your week ladies and in case I don't say it later I'll say it early HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Mermaid Tears

I often wonder where OPI comes up with these cool names for their polishes, I'm still stumped. Today I have a mani I did using their Mermaid Tears polish. I don't have to review OPI polish because I've yet to have a complaint and I have too many bottles not to have done a review already.

I am however developing a complaint about some of the polishes looking exactly the same! I'm hip to the game, I know they are recycling some of these colors. The crackle I used is by Color Club.

Don't cry little mermaid it's gonna be okay :).....

P.s please excuse my ripped skin by my cuticles I've been under the weather and cleaning w/o gloves.

Pink Monday

Hi ladies... Wo is me, I've been under the weather for a few days now. I mustered up some strength to drag myself outta bed and do something constructive with myself. I posted on my Instagram (Goldensyard) a while back that the girly clothing store Charlotte Russe has heir own polish now, and how the bottle shape resembles American Apparel's own.

So I got around to using the ones I got which are a jet black and this fluorescent pink. They don't have funky names to them just regular color names. I will rate this polish a 8. The formula is thick and its first coat is very matte and streaky. You're looking at 3 coats plus a Seche top coat.

On my accent nail I used a OPI glitter called "The Living Daylights" from the James Bond Skyfall collection. The glitters have a fall look to it with its use of gold, red, silver and orange colors. I imagine with a red or green background it would be so fabulous !

Well I bid you all a great Monday.

I got it twisted....

Hi ladies, I have been on a hiatus since last month's challenge finished and I am well rested. I have a mani today to show you from a 2 bottle haul I got at Icing last weekend. This polish is a called Twisted Fantasy. This polish  has glitter and lacquer mixed together which results in a pretty girly appearance. Its lacquer is a cross between green and a dark blue depending on the shade of light. It kind of gives me the "new year's eve" showoff with the glitter confetti. You are looking at 3 coats and one top coat of Seche.

Have a great weekend everyone!
