Sephora by OPI Blue Grotto

Monday, January 16, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! So, life has been busy with me since I've starting working full time again. I feel like I don't have the energy or time to do anything but work and sleep now. I'm happy that I'm at least earning an income again and I plan to save up to travel somewhere this year. That's one of my main goals for this year and I hope to accomplish it. Anyways, I have a dark blue polish swatch to share today so let's see it then.

Sephora by OPI Blue Grotto is a dark navy blue creme. The color almost looks like an inky blue but its a little too light in shade for that. I like how dark this color is and that's its not too dark that it almost looks black on the nails. The formula was on the watery side so application was a little tricky for me but still manageable. This is two coats.

I like this dark blue polish a lot. If your in the mood for something dark on the nails, this is a nice alternative to a black polish. What do you think?

Finger Paints Grape Gumball

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Hi everyone! So I have another polish swatch to share today. I really enjoy sharing polish swatches since there much more easier to do than nail art and it gives me a chance to use some polishes I haven't even worn yet. This purple I'm showing is one I've worn a few times already so let's see the polish.

Finger Paints Grape Gumball is a medium grape purple with silver shimmers. This polish is really unique to me because the shimmer in it kind of gives the color a speckled look. Depending on how the light hits it, the silver shimmers sometimes reflect a little blue as well. I also wouldn't say this is a true purple because it does have some blue tones to it. The formula was good so application was easy for me. This is two coats.

Overall, this color was great and I don't have anything in my collection quite like it. The only negative thing that I don't like about it is that the label on the bottle rubs off as you can tell in the pictures. Only the Finger Paints polishes that I own do this which is sad to see. What do you think?

Pure Ice Twisted

Monday, January 9, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! So I got something exciting to share today. I was chosen as one of the top 50 nail polish blogs on the web by Feedspot. It was such a honor to be on the list since there's so many amazing nail polish blogs and websites out there. It definitely made my day and its a huge accomplishment too. Anyways, let's see the polish I'm sharing today.

Pure Ice Twisted is a blue green duochrome glass fleck polish. This color is so hard to describe since depending on the light and angle, the color can change to look more blue or green. I just love it since its so sparkly when I have it on. I only own a handful of Pure Ice polishes and this is one is definitely a color I'm very happy to have in my collection. The formula is on the sheer side but application on this polish was easy for me. This is three coats.

I'm so pleased with this color. Its one polish I wear quite often and I like it the more I wear it too. The color just has so much depth and dimension in it to me. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Non-dominant Hand Mani

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is non-dominant hand mani. I was planning to do one but I've been busy with work and other personal things that I just didn't have the time to complete this theme. Plus, the nails on my other hand isn't really in the best condition too. However, be sure to check out the manicures the other Twinsies did.

Blue and Yellow Texture Double Stamping

Monday, January 2, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I hope everyone had a happy new year over the weekend. I still can't believe its already 2017....I don't have any resolutions this year planned out for blogging but I do have one resolution for my personal life. The one thing I would like to accomplish this year is to travel to somewhere since I've never really been anywhere far. So hopefully, I will be able to do that sometime this year. Anyways, let's go ahead and see my first nail art design for this new year then.

Blue and Yellow Texture Double Stamping Nail Art

I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my ring nail and I double stamped with Ya Qin An 26 and Ya Qin An 25 using stamping plate BM-312 from Bundle Monster. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order from Born Pretty Store. For the ring nail, I used Dollish Polish Spank You Very Much and for the rest of the nails, I used Pretty & Polished King of C-C-Cool. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I really enjoy the look of the double stamping design here. The yellow and blue really go well together and works with the other colors in this manicure. I didn't really know how to describe the stamping image I used other than looking like a textured like design. What do you think?
