China Glaze Want My Bawdy

Hi guys!!

Another post today of a swatch. Hehe I've been doing a few of these lately and it's kinda lame I know. But maybe some of you will enjoy seeing these colours. They're my own personal picks but sometimes I realise that the colour in the bottle is not always an accurate representation of how it looks on your nails so this is what these posts are for!

Want my bawdy, silly as this name is, is a really unique looking duochrome polish at first glance but when applied, it's a purple-ish blue frost on the nails. I wish it didn't have that minimal amount of streaking though. I supposed it's because of the frost effect that it has. Otherwise, it only requires about 3 coats to become opaque.

It's somewhat comparable to this layering combo I did couple posts ago. At the very least, Want my Bawdy reminds me of it.

Essie Smokin Hot + OPI The Color to Watch
That's all I have for today guys! Hope you are enjoying your week/day so far!

Revlon Scented Polish in Mad About Mango

Hi guys,

This one's a peachy orange colour (somewhat salmon toned in real life) that leaves your nails with this candy bubble gum smell. I don't particularly like the smell but it's tolerable.

The only thing I would complain about is the "scent" that it is supposed to leave behind when it dries. Otherwise, the coverage and finish aren't that bad. The swatches below are 3 coats with top coat. I would say overall that it's not a bad purchase since it's relatively inexpensive ($2.50) at Walgreens.

Anywayssss, hope you all are having a good day!

Wet n Wild Wild Shine Dreamy Poppy

Hi guys.

This one is called Dreamy Poppy hehe funny name. It's actually only a dollar at many retail locations that carry the Wet n Wild brand. I like it..... You get alot of value for what you pay! I've been using the Wet n Wild Black Creme for while now. I have to say that this line of polishes is probably some of best quality of nail polishes I've used for the price.

You probably don't want me to yap on and on.

In pictures, I've painted 3 coats and there is top coat.

Hope you enjoy!

Nail Art Inspired by Finger Painted (blog)!

Hi guys!

I watched this video done by a blogger I really like. Her name is Lexi and her blog is linked here!

Also.... her video is linked here!

I followed some of her techniques and stuff to replicate her design and this is how it came out. I used a white by Sally Hansen and acrylic paints. For the blue nails, I used a Quo by Orly polish called Turquoise Moonlight.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for reading.

NOTD Glitter Layering

Hi guys!!

You haven't heard from me in a while. That's simply because I've been really lazy and found it hard to be motivated to blog as frequent as I used to but I'm back today and that should be worth something!

I have a glitter manicure on today and it actually features 3 glitter toppers! It has NYC In a Minute Blackula (black base colour), CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle (purple fine sparkles), Sapphire Sparkle (blue fine sparkles) and Wet n Wild "Wild Shine" in Kaleidescope (silver hex glitter, $1 from Meijer).

It kind of reminds me of the galaxy manicures I've been seeing. It's becoming quite popular. But this requires no sponging which essentially means no need for sponges and the extra clean up! I like it alot because it's so sparkly and fun. It's an excellent recreation of galaxy nails.

There is one more thing though.... I cannot take credit for this layering combo. I must thank the most precious person in my life for coming up with this idea! I love it so much!

Hope you are all having a good day/week so far!
