Sally Hansen Color Foil "Liquid Gold"


Hello guys and happy Thursday!  It is another snow day here in North Carolina as we got a grand total of 11" of snow!  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Color Foil "Liquid Gold" which is meant to be work with no base coat or top coat as a one-day special wear.

"Liquid Gold" is unsurprisingly a shiny gold nail polish.  Formula wise "Liquid Gold" was slightly watery but not too difficult to apply.  After two coats, the polish was opaque but had a ton of streak marks and weird uneven spots.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for one day because without a top coat it practically fell off.

Overall I am not impressed by Sally Hansen Color Foil's "Liquid Gold."  Maybe with practice the application would become better but it will be a while before I wear this polish again.

China Glaze "Dancing & Prancing"


Hello guys and happy Tuesday!  If you're like me and live in the Southern United States then you know it is supposed to snow tonight and into tomorrow.  Here's hoping that we all get a snow day!  So to celebrate I decided to pull out a chunky glitter, so without further ado, today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Dancing & Prancing."

"Dancing & Prancing" is a stunning gold, purple and blue chunky glitter in a clear base.  Formula wise this polish was good and surprisingly easy to apply considering chunky glitters are notorious for being difficult.  After two coats, "Dancing & Prancing" was amazing almost opaque and it looked fabulous on my nails!  However that being said I wanted to test this glitter as a top coat.


The first polish I decided to try out with "Dancing & Prancing" was Ciaté's "Superficial" a lovely deep teal.  This combination was fun and perfect for Winter.


The second polish I decided to test with "Dancing & Prancing" was Zoya's "Rebel."  This combination turned out really well and I went on to use it for my Birthday Nails earlier this month!

If you want to know more about Ciate's "Superficial" or Zoya's "Rebel" check out my post from last year.

Overall I am really pleased with China Glaze's "Dancing & Prancing."  This polish is a gorgeous glitter that looked good on every single polish I tried it with!  I can't wait to wear it again soon!

Sinful Colors "Mist-erious"


Hey everyone and happy Monday.  I meant to post yesterday and time totally got away from me.  So without further ado, today's nail polish is Sinful Colors "Mist-erious."

"Mist-erous" is a really pretty pastel sky blue with. hint of silver shimmer.  The formula of this nail polish was great an applied on to my nails very easily.  After two coats "Mist-erious" was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Mist-erious" for four days before I noticed to tip wear.

Overall I like Sinful Colors "Mist-erious."  Everything for the formula to the gorgeous color is fantastic and I will definitely be wearing this polish a lot more often this Spring and Summer!

Bundle Monster Plate P101: Gem Nails


Hello all and happy Saturday!  It snowed here in the mountains - which was not part of the plan. Today's post is some fun 90's throwback nail art featuring Bundle Monster Plate P101.  The plate looks like this:


To create this nail art look I used these polishes:

OPI "Look At My Bow!", Bundle Monster Color "Straight Up Black" and "So Metal."

First I used two coats of OPI's "Look At My Bow!" as the base, which looked like this:


Next I used Bundle Monster Color's "Straight Up Black" and "So Metal" to stamp the designs on my nails.  I finished the look with Orly "Sec N' Dry" to seal the design in.  Which as you can see didn't quite work out as well as I would have liked.

If you want to know more about OPI's "Look At My Bow!" check out my post from 2016!

Overall I like how this fun 90's design turned out!  Next up is to get the hang of reverse stamping so I can try out the unicorn head on this plate!  (Tips and tricks welcome!)

Sephora by OPI's "Metro Too Chic"


Hey all and happy happy Friday!  I am enjoying the long weekend by heading to the mountains of North Carolina! Today's nail polish is Sephora by OPI's "Metro Too Chic" which came in a mini set of the same name.  The Metro Too Chic mini set looks like this:


"Metro Too Chic" is a unique grey colored polish.  The formula of "Metro Too Chic" was perfect and extremely easy to apply.  After two coats this nail polish was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Metro Too Chic" for five days before some tip wear occurred.

Overall I am really happy with Sephora by OPI's "Metro Too Chic."  Everything about this polish is great and the color is perfect Winter.  I will definitely be wearing this nail polish a lot more often!

Essie "Fashion Playground"


Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a nice week so far.  Today's nail polish is Essie's "Fashion Playground" which came as part of Essie's Spring 2014 mini set.  The set looks like this:


"Fashion Playground" is a lovely pastel pistachio color.  Formula wise this polish was interesting and slightly watery.  After two coats, "Fashion Playground" was mostly opaque but there were some streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for three days before it began to chip off in little chunks.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Essie's "Fashion Playground."  I absolutely adore the color but I wish it was more opaque on my nails.  Next time I wear this polish I may apply three coats of polish and see if that looks any better.

Trend It Up "100"


Hi guys!  I hope everyone survived the first Monday back at work/school of 2018.  Today's nail polish is Trend It Up "100" which my parents got for me in The Czech Republic last year on their river cruise.

"100" is a really pretty periwinkle nail polish that looks very Spring-like.  Formula wise this polish was very good and easy to apply.  After two coats, "100" was perfect and entirely opaque with no streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for six full days before I noticed a few small chips.

Overall I am very happy with Trend It Up's "100."  I can't wait to wear this nail polish again and I hope get my hands on more of this brands polish.  (Let me know in the comments where you buy this brand.)
