Sweet Tooth & Mardi Gras

Hi ladies, hope you are having a great start of the week. Today I have another member of the Sinful Colors Sugar Rush collection that I haven't swatched, this is called Sweet Tooth.

This is a pretty lavender color polish that's smooth in formula and dries glossy, you can top it off with a top coat if you like of course.

The glitter layover is a polish from Ruby Kisses HD called "Mardi Gras", it has silver tinsel glitter with purple fine glitters in it.
I was looking through my Frankens and I spotted one I made just like it called "Vabulous", smh, hey great minds think alike right!!

You can get this RK HD polish in any Beauty Supply store for .99.

Hi ladies and happy Friday to you. Today I have a color changing polish by Ruby Wing to share with you called "Gypsy". I picked this up at the Urban Outfitters store in the clearance bin for $1. I think they're a pretty cool brand and the formula changing indoor and outdoor seems fun.

Below are pics of indoor, indoor flash and outside color. You can also find these polishes for $8 on transdesign.com

Hi ladies, you ever notice how we are ungratefully employed lol? I say this because I was just off for 5 days and I'm really dragging wishing I had more days off smh!!

Anyhoo I have this Illamasqua polish to show you that I picked up over the weekend at Sephora. This is from the Rubber Texture Brights line, they were on sale for $11. This one is called "Optimist", it's a neon orange matte drying polish. I was reluctant to proceed while applying because i'm not a huge matte fan, but once I added top coat I was good for the time being.

Here is 3 coats with a top coat. I also picked up Nurture, which is a neon green one (swatch to come).

Rimmel X Sation

Today I have a Rimmel polish and a Sation glitter polish layover to show you. These Rimmel polishes are sole for $1.50 in your local Walmart & Walgreens stores.
I first swatched the Rimmel polish called "Caramel Cupcake", it's a taupe or nude polish depending on how many coats you use. Secondly, I layered Sation's "Calorie Countess" on top. I was pretty pleased with the color combo.

Floss Gloss-Con Limon

Hi ladies, I have a few posts scheduled for this week so if you think i'm on a posting frenzy, I guess I am!! Today I have a polish by Floss Gloss to show you, it's from their newest color release. I saw my girl over at LACLAC with this brand sometime last year and I'm just getting around to trying out their brand.

This color is a bright lime green color I feel in love with just through some of their IG advertisements. At first I didn't think it was going to be a dark lime and with the 3rd coat it was the true color I was looking for. I am one who's known to be rocking loud colors, I let my nails do all the talking. You can check out their goods here for the purchase purpose.

Color Club Holo polishes

I had to hurry and put these swatches up because this week I'm going away with my boo in celebration of Valentine's Day. I just got these polishes in $14 shipped thru a seller on amazon.com.

By now you all know these are Color Club Halo Hues polishes. I will tell you that I have been revived since my let down by Essence's attempt at the holo formula; these gave me life!! The first one is called "Halo-Graphic" and the second polish is "Blue Heaven".
I love this polish, they seem so fun and in my best Claire Huxtable voice "let the record show" Color Club is in my top brands!!

Sation Candylandia polishes

Here's a swatch I did the other day of Sation's recently released Candylandia collection. I only bought two outta the collection from transdesign.com. The pink is called "My Lacquer Charm" and the yellow is "Abbacadazzle".

I love the pink, it's so me but the yellow I'm a little disappointed because of its sheer-like coat; here I used 3 coats. The yellow finish reminds of egg yolk when it's busted.


Happy Friday Lacquerologists.... Today I have a swatch from this group called Squarehue. It's a program quite like Julep, which sends you pre-chosen polish colors to try. It's $22 a month deal that you can cancel at anytime. I signed up back in December and just got the February release. The formulas are workable, I had a slight issue with the first polish called "High School Crush" which is a baby pink color; it appeared to be very streaky.

I found that 3 coats will be opaque successful. I believe these are their Valentine's Day colors. The rose pink color is "Wartime Romance" and the burgundy color is called "Dear John"

Essence Holo Fail....

Ok so you won't hear me gripe about the price BUT U WILL hear me gripe about the quality. In this instance I lucked up on .99 Essence Holographic polishes which rang up as .29 at the register (go me this far)!!

I've had these polishes for a few months, they come from Ulta's clearance aisle. I'm going to leave it up to you to tell me in which lighting should I expect to see the holo effect? I have some indoor, indoor flash and outdoor solo pics and I have been unable to capture the holo effect! My sis over at Lacqsofluv had the same problem as we shopped together that day. I said maybe it was because the day she took the pic it was fairly cloudy.

You tell me what I did wrong or is this a "it's not me it's you" moment.

Where's my chauffeur

Hi ladies, this is a mani I did on Sunday for the Californails feb nail art challenge. I gotta say that I haven't done another day because it's every 3 days and I've already forgotten!! I'm so used to doing a challenge day every day.

Here I've used an untried polish by Essie from the Leading Lady collection. This is "Where's my chauffeur". I got this for 2.50 at this nail supply store I was stoked to get it so cheap.
