Deborah Lippmann Million Dollar Mermaid — Nabi Hologram Brone

Today I have another new mani to share with you. This one features Deborah Lippmann Million Dollar Mermaid which is a peachy orange base with tons of golden shimmer and small orange metallic glitter and Nabi Hologram in Brone. (That’s what it says as the color name.)  It’s a rusty orange subtle holographic polish.  I am quite matchy matchy when I do accent nails usually. So the Nabi just about perfectly matches the metallic glitter in the Deborah Lippmann.

I think this turned out great! I love it!

Yesterday’s Textures Topcoated

Yesterday I showed you textured polishes by Dance Legend Sahara Crystal in #16 Amethyst & #51 Platinum without topcoat.  Many of you don’t like the feeling of textured polish.  It sometimes takes a lot of topcoat to smooth them out, but one trick you can use is to put 1 coat of a matte topcoat and let it dry. After it is dry, go over with your shiny topcoat. I thought the matte topcoat may dull the super sparkle you get, but it doesn’t at all!  In the photos I have 2 coats of Gelous and one coat of my trusty quick dry topcoat. On my right hand I put 1 coat WnW Matte topcoat on my thumb, let it dry, then a coat of my trusty topcoat and it is as smooth as my left hand.  (Sorry I don’t have photos of my right hand though).

Topcoat really sets these polishes on fire!  The sparkle is out of this world!

Billie Cosmetics Electric Blue — China Glaze Can I Get An Untz Untz?

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today I have a polish from a brand I’ve only ever seen in Canada called Billie Cosmetics.  They used to be made in the USA, but I see this one was made in China.  The only place *I* know of to find these is Dollar Tree in Canada.  They are $1.25 (I think) and well worth that price!  China Glaze Can I Get An Untz Untz? is from the 2015 Summer Collection Electric Nights.

Essie Just Stitched – Cashmere Matte Collection

Hey everyone!  Today I’m wearing one of the Essie Cashmere Matte polishes called Just Stitched.  I’ve read horrible things about the formula on this one, but I had no problems at all!!  I started with a base of at home soak off gel.  I didn’t use any other basecoat because this gel makes my nails so smooth – I love it!!  Then I did 2 coats of Just Stitched followed by 1 coat of my quick dry top coat. After a few minutes I added one more coat of Just Stitched and took some pictures.  I did use some cuticle oil before the pictures which caused the matte polish to go kind of satiny.  After taking a few photos I then added my shiny topcoat again because I prefer this polish shiny. It really brings out the shimmer (which I love!).

Hi everyone!  So I have a problem. It’s a purple problem. And a holo problem.  Put them both together and I can’t contain myself!  One day, when all my swatch sticks are done, I will post all the purple holos I own. I don’t even know the number myself, but there are a lot of them!!

OPI Visions Of Georgia Green – Coca Cola 2015 Collection

Hey everyone!  Today I have a polish from a new OPI collection to share with you!  Visions Of Georgia Green from the new OPI Coca Cola 2015 Collection.  I found this at Trade Secrets in Canada and they had OPI buy 2 get 1 free so I really had to get them, right??!!  I got this one and Centennial Celebration which I will be sharing in the next few days.  I think all the rest of this collection are re-promotes, so I didn’t get any of them.

Joan Rivers Beauty Coral with Pure Ice Orange Sorbet

Good morning!  Todays mani features Joan Rivers Beauty nail polish in “Coral” and Pure Ice “Orange Sorbet”.  I picked up a 5 piece Joan Rivers collection from The Shopping Channel on sale and I had an additional % off with free shipping.  I’m glad I got this set.  Formula is great!  Of course the Pure Ice was purchased at Walmart. I’m not seeing anything about this collection on the interwebz. I wonder if it’s a Canadian exclusive?  There were 6 speckled polishes and a bunch of cremes or shimmers .  I’ve picked up 5 of the speckled’s so far and am looking for the last one.
