Tiara vs. Showgirl! Ding Ding Ding

Sorry for being MIA but I have reached a rough patch in regards to my health which left with very little motivation to do anything in my life. I still did my paint each day but did not blog about it. Since my health had me down, I didn't keep up with the 30 days of untireds. I dislike not finishing things!

Onto more important business....NAILS!!

China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara is a Sterling silver with blue and teal glitter.
The index finger is one coat of Lorelei's Tiara.
The middle finger is two coats of Lorelei's Tiara.
The ring is three coats of Lorelei's Tiara.
As you can see, the blue/teal glitter spreads nicely!
It's a great color combination! I love this glitter!
This is a comparison photo.
Index and Ring fingers are Sally Hansen Showgirl Chic.
Middle and Pinky fingers are China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara...
Can you tell the difference? 
Nope either can I.

This season has produced A LOT of glitter dupes.
If you have one, you do not need the other.
The only teeny tiny difference is that the Lorelei's Tiara produces more blue/teal glitter than Showgirl Chic.

Until tomorrow my lovelies!

You'd Better Work

I love RuPaul.. Love is an understatement. Obsessed? Yeah, that's more like it.
Today is day 21 of the 30 Days of Untrieds.

For this installment, I bring to you Concrete Catwalk by China Glaze.
Concrete Catwalk is a dark gray cream that was opaque in two coats.
This is a MUST HAVE.
So absolutely gorgeous!!
I can't stop staring at it!
You need this! Really you do 

Are you ready for my failed nail art?
I did this at 3 am in the morning and while on my pain meds.
It looked good to me. But at the same time, I am sure everything does at that time!
What the hell are those?!
Well they are supposed to be bullets!
If you tilt your head they kind of look like bullets.
Add this to the ever growing list of things I want to redo

It's a love hate relationship

Hello my lacquered lovers!
Sorry I've been MIA but I have been really sick recently and have been undergoing quite a few tests. By the time I get home, I'm exhausted and still feeling the effects from the sedation.
I dislike not posting regularly but I am going to try my hardest to post each day.

Today is day 19 of the 30 days of untrieds. For day 19, I bring to you My Sleigh's In The Shop by Nicole by OPI.

My Sleigh's In The Shop is a fuchsia, purple and gold microglitter.
The gold microglitter adds depth to the polish and manages to bring it to life.
I love NOPI and OPI glitters!
They do them so well.
Left hand!
I was influenced by friend's tattoos. He has love and hate inked on his knuckles.
I'm obsessed with font like this!
Right hand!
The right hand was hard to do. The letters are not the same height.
But I must say that I did a great job using my non-dominant hand!

OPI Christmas Polishes at Ulta

Today I was nail shopping and while at Ulta, I came across some polishes that I wasn't familiar with.
There are three OPI Christmas polishes there. How's It Snowin'? Speak For Your-Elf, and A Sparkle Yule Love.
This is also my Day 16 of Untrieds. I fell behind because I was in Canada with no internet at all. But I will now resume to posting regularly now.

This is How's It Snowin'?
The pointer finger has 1 coat.
The middle finger has 2 coats.
The ring finger has 3 coats.
I love this polish (I think I say that a lot).
It starts off rather sheer but is very buildable. 
It's gray and silver glitter. (Sorry I am horrible at describing things)

Next up is A Sparkle Yule Love.
The pointer finger has 1 coat.
The middle finger has 2 coats.
The ring finger has 3 coats.
This looks exactly like Excuse Moi? from The Muppets collection.
I like be doing a comparison post later on in the week.
 It's a pink/reddish base with teal, green, silver, gold, pink and orange glitter.

Last but not least is Speak for Your-Elf
The pointer has 1 coat. 
The middle has 2 coats.
The ring has 3 coats.
This is a red based with red glitter.
We've seen these before.

Why do my nails look dirty????
It's a small collection and I am thinking it's exclusively for Ulta.

Androgynie!!!!



Welcome to Day 13!!!! I can't really believe that it's day 13 already. Wow! I am still in Canada so no nail art until I get back home! I left my tools at my boyfriend's house. Womp womp!! I'm sorry for not responding to comments or commenting on blogs. I don't have internet up here and I cannot access the internet on my phone or we will be charged a lot of money for it!

So today I have a special polish for you with a super weird name!

Orly Androgynie!!!!!
*CHEER*
Androgynie is a black jelly with large multi-coloured hexagons, finer prismatic glitter and really fine gold flecks.
This is an amazing color!!! Even my boyfriend commented on this polish!
He said he liked it a lot and it reminded him of space. 
So when I get the chance, I will be drawing planets on it!

Here is a closer look at the bottle. 
Look at the yumminess of the hexagons in the bottle.
The hexagons which hardly show up in the nail.
It's rather disappointing!!
See that!? I want that on my nail!
Instead, it decides to hang out on the side of the bottle!
I can't explain how much I love this polish. 
Words escape me.
Just.. MORE HEXAGONS ON MY NAILS!!

Arrrrrrrrrrrr!!!! Walk the plank!!!!


Welcome to another installment of 30 Days of Untrieds! Today is Day 12. I am in Canada and there will be no nail art. Sorry!!
I have for you:
OPI PLANKS A LOT

Planks A lot is a slightly dusty purple creme from Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides collection.
GORGEOUS!!!
I perhaps may be biased because I love purples.
This was 2 coats and I might have gotten away with 1 carefully applied coat!

This is perfect. Look at how gorgeous it is! The formula is amazing!
Looove!!!

Hello my beautiful followers!!!
Today is Day 11 of the 30 Days of Untrieds. This is also a scheduled post and as I said yesterday, there will be no nail art. :( Sorry my loves

Today I bring to you.
Drum roll please......
MAC Gold Veneer came out in 2007 with the Antiquetease holiday collection.
It is a tarnished yellow gold lacquer.
Very obviously a frost(obvious by the brushstrokes left behind).
 I know a lot of my fellow nail bloggers do not like frosts but I do not mind them!
I love this color and it looks great against my skintone!!
Isn't she so pretty? 
This is a perfect lacquer for the holidays!
