China Glaze "Let's Shell-ebrate"


Hi guys!  I hope everyone survived Monday - mine was full of crazy drivers and meeting scheduling nightmares!  Today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Let's Shell-ebrate" which is part of the Shell-ebration Time mini collection.  The set looks like this:


"Let's Shell-ebrate" is a pink and purple mini glitter in a clear base.  The formula of this nail polish was thick but that actually made it easy to even spread the glitter out.  After two coats of polish, "Let's Shell-ebrate" was not opaque but it was streak free.  As with many glitters they are meant to be worn as a top coat, so I decided to test that out!


The first polish I decided to try out with "Let's Shell-ebrate" was Julep's "Nellie,"  This combination was shimmery and very happy.  I would definitely wear this combination again!

If you want to know more about Julep's "Nellie" check out my post from earlier this year!

Overall I like China Glaze's "Let's Shell-ebrate."

Julep "Nellie"


Hi everyone and happy happy Saturday!  It was hot as the sun here today in North Carolina, and I decided to pick a bright pink to go with the weather!  Today's nail polish is Julep's "Nellie."

"Nellie" is a gorgeous fuchsia colored nail polish.  Formula wise "Nellie" was watery but as long as I wiped the brush well it was not difficult to apply.  After two coats, the polish was entirely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Nellie" for five days before there were some small tip chips.

If you want to see more of Julep's "Nellie" check out my Half Moon Mani from earlier this year!

Overall I really like Julep's "Nellie."  I love the color of this nail polish and how on I was able to wear this polish on my nails.  I can't wait to wear "Nellie" again.  (Also does it remind any one else of Little House on the Prairie?)

Nails INC "Jermyn Street"


Hello all!  We're almost to the weekend!  (Thankfully!)  Today's nail polish is Nails INC's "Jermyn Street" which is part of The London Collection that I purchased a while back from QVC.  The set looks like this:


"Jermyn Street"is an interesting light chocolate brown with a hint of dusty purple.  Formula wise this nail polish was good, but a little thick.  After two coats of polish, "Jermyn Street" was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks. As for chipping, I was able to wear "Jermyn Street" for three days before it began to chip off.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Nails INC's "Jermyn Street."  I love the beautiful color and its application however I do I wish I could have worn his polish longer before it chipped.  That being said I will wear this nail polish again.

Candie's "Supernova Sky"


Hi all!  To brighten up everyone's Tuesday here's a glitter!  Today's nail polish is Candie's "Supernova Sky."  The Candie's brand comes from an american store called Kohl's which sells items at a discount.

"Supernova Sky" is a pretty blue and silver chunky glitter in a clear base.  Formula wise this polish was watery and took some time to spread the glitter out evenly.  As with most glitters it isn't meant to be worn alone so I decided to test "Supernova Sky" out with some other polishes.  Here's how it turned out:


The first polish I decided to try out with "Supernova Sky" was China Glaze's "Boho Blues."  This combination was very blue and looked like the ocean in the sunlight.  I liked this combination a lot and it will be nice for Summer!


The second polish I decided to try with "Supernova Sky" was China Glaze's "About Layin' Out" which is a hot neon pink.  This combination was okay but it wasn't my favorite.


The third nail polish I decided to test out with "Supernova Sky" was Sally Hansen Insta-Dry's "Rapid Red."  This combination turned out nicely and I wore it happily for Memorial Day.  It would also be a great and easy look for the 4th of July!

If you want to know more about China Glaze's "Boho Blues" , China Glaze's "About Layin' Out" or Sally Hansen Insta-Dry's "Rapid Red" check out my posts from earlier this year!

Overall I like Candie's "Supernova Sky."  This polish looks nice on the nail which makes up for the patience it took to apply to my nail.  I will however wear "Supernova Sky" again because it is so sparkly and pretty!

Nocibé "Ah Les Hommes!"


Bonjour everyone!  I hope you all survived Monday!  Today's nail polish is Nocibé's "Ah Les Hommes!" which translates to "ah the men!"  Nocibé is a French brand and I purchased this polish in Paris, France in 2015.

"Ah Les Hommes!" is a gorgeous deep purple polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was extremely thick and difficult to apply, however I think my bottle is drying out as there was excess dried polish around the cap.  After two coats, "Ah Les Hommes!" was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for two days before it began to flake off.

Overall I do like Nocibé's "Ah Les Hommes!" but probably won't be able to wear it again unless I buy a new bottle, since mine has dried out.  That being said, I would wear this nail polish again if the bottle had not dried out.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dry "Rapid Red"


Hi guys!  Sorry for the lack of posts for a few days, I went to the mountains for my nephew's 2nd birthday and my laptop didn't like the wi-fi!  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Insta-Dry's "Rapid Red." I was gifted this nail polish last Christmas and I have been keen to try it out!  The bottle advertises that all you need is one stroke, one coat and off you go.  So I was curious to see if this Insta-Dry polish held up to it's name!

"Rapid Red" is a bright, cherry red nail polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was very nice and easy to apply.  After one coat (as advertised on the bottle), this polish was surprisingly opaque and streak free.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Rapid Red" for two days before it began to flake off.  However removing this nail polish was challenging as the polish went gloopy.  "Rapid Red" also stained my nails, which was disappointing.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Sally Hansen Insta-Dry's "Rapid Red."  The color is great and a one-coater however the stained nails and painful removal were a let down.  I am undecided on whether or not I will give this polish another try, but I definitely won't buy any of the other Insta-Dry colors.

China Glaze "Grass Is Lime Greener"


Hello all and happy happy Wednesday!  I am so excited for this weekend because I am going to the Appalachian mountains.  Today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Grass Is Lime Greener."

"Grass Is Lime Greener" is a neon lime green polish that is perfect for Summer!  Formula wise this polish was an odd mix of watery but difficult to apply.  I found that if I wiped the excess polish off then the brush would not glide along my nail in a nice even stroke.  But if I left all the polish on the brush then the polish spilled over my cuticle line.  (Which you can see in the picture above.)  After two coats, "Grass Is Lime Greener" was mostly opaque but had a ton of visible streak marks.  In fact it looked so terrible after only two coats (above picture) that I went back and applied a third coat (picture below) to see if it looked better.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Grass Is Lime Greener" for about two or three days before it began to chip off.


Overall I have mixed feelings about China Glaze's "Grass Is Lime Greener."  I adore the color of the polish and that was why I originally purchased this polish for that reason.  However the weird formula and the need for a third coat was slightly annoying.  That being said I will probably wear this nail polish again because I love the color!
