Sally Hansen Lustre Shine - Lava

I just spotted the Sally Hansen Lustre Shine polishes at CVS the other day, finally. Lava was the only color I found unique enough to pick up though. It is a orange multi-chrome with flashes of gold and pink. I'm glad I got this color because I love the color shift and don't have anything like this in my stash.

The polish is pretty sheer, so I had to use three coats. I think this polish would look amazing over black though and I'll probably layer it next time. I'm also debating if I should pick up the other polishes from this collection, I was pretty impressed with this color. Plus, I don't have enough duochrome/multi-chrome polishes in my life.

Color Club - Halo-Graphic

Hi there!

I have another polish from the Color Club Halo Hues collection to share with you today. I have swatches of Color Club Halo-Graphic, an amazing pink holo. This polish has a pretty strong linear holo effect and its absolutely stunning. Take a look.

I used two coats but it was fairly opaque after one. The formula was great and gave me no issues at all. I don't think I used base coat or top coat, but I can't exactly remember. Halo-Graphic is probably my favorite holo polish, at least for now. 

What's your favorite holo polish?

Revlon Rain Forest + Gold Glitter


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I know I did. It was nice to spend some time with the family and not have to worry about school or work.

I wanted to share a swatch of Revlon Rain Forest with you today. Rain Forest is dark green jelly with green glass-flecks. For fun, I added a coat of an unnamed gold glitter polish that I got as a free gift from Wet Seal over the weekend.

I used two coats of Rain Forest and had no problems with application. I do have a bald spot on my middle finger in the pictures, but I think that was on me since I was painting my nails in the dark. I used one thick coat of the gold glitter, which was extremely thick and goopy. I kinda regretted adding the gold glitter because it really covered up the gorgeous glass-flecks in Rain Forest, but I probably will change my nails today, so no biggie.

Half Moon Mani


I wanted to take a quick moment out of my day to share with you a half moon mani I wore last week. I'm not even sure I'd call this a half moon mani since it looks more like a french tip, oh well.

I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and Revlon Top Speed Pink Lingerie, and a silver Kiss Nail Art striper polish. I also used those binder hole reinforcement stickers to tape off my nails.

Hope you liked them!

Color Club - Blue Heaven

Last month, I got four polishes from Color Club's Halo Hues collection. This collection is comprised of six linear holographic polishes. Today, I'm going to share with you, Blue Heaven.

Blue Heaven is a light blue holo. It has a very strong holo effect! The day that I painted my nails, I also got my Cheeky Summer Collection stamping plates and decided to test one out, so I also have a couple of pictures of that.

I used two coats of Blue Heaven over a base coat of Seche Clear. I didn't use any top coat because I didn't want to dull the holo. Blue Heaven gave me no application issues, it applied perfectly. All my pictures were taken in artificial light; I tried to take pictures in sunlight but it was rainy and gloomy that day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Color Club - Berry And Bright

Hey there!

I have another polish from Color Club's Winter Affair collection, Berry And Bright. This polish has a very similar finish to the green polish from this collection, Ho-Ho-Holly.  Berry And Bright is an amazing red shimmer, I couldn't keep my eyes off my nails. 

I used two coats of Berry And Bright. The formula was a little thicker than I would have liked but it wasn't a major issue. 

Apparently this collection comes in a scented version. I smelled my nails, but there was no scent, so I must have the unscented version. I don't mind having the unscented version since I'm pretty sensitive to smells, but I'm curious what they smell like. Oh well. 

I have one more polish from this collection to share with you. I also have some new holos to to swatch, so watch out for that soon. 

Thanks for stopping by!
