Waiting for Spring to…Spring

1 Mar

It seems that since I’ve learned the “foil method” for removing the glitter polishes I can’t get enough! I’ve been doing a lot of sparkle and glitter polishes and while they are fun and gorgeous my favorite type of polish is creme. Its been hard to ignore the 18 Kleancolor polishes I bought, but after not so great results and then just okay results I’ve been avoiding them. But I’ve come to the conclusion that I can not judge these as a whole. Each color seems to behave differently. Even the pastel pink and pastel yellow acted differently. I figured, one collection/finish – one formula, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

I’ve been doing a lot of dark mani’s lately so I decided to switch it up a bit. Plus with all this insanely warm weather we’ve been having lately I’ve been in the mood for Spring! Although, go figure today is cold and rainy. A few weeks ago when the Kleancolor polishes arrived I was so excited to see this pastel yellow. The only other yellow I have is Sally Hansen’s Lightning, which is a bright yellow – at least on my skin tone.

I started out with three coats of Kleancolor’s Pastel Yellow (they need to work on their names. Where’s the in between Spoiled’s crazy names and Kleancolor’s boring ones.)  I made sure I waited a little bit to add the other coats (I was stepping on eggshells, really wanting this to work out). I added one layer of Essie’s To Dry For – just in case.

I then used Konad’s special Pastel Purple stamping polish and Bundle Monster’s plate BM11. When I first got these plates I noticed this particular design was on two different plates. But then I noticed that they seem to be different sizes, a small amount, but still different enough. I finished it off with two coats of Essie’s TDF.

My Red Angel plates and dotting tools have arrived! Can’t wait to play with them!

Red Fishnets

4 Feb

I haven’t done a really girly manicure in a while so this morning I was all set to do Sinful Color’s Beautiful Girl and a white konad stamp. I guess I succeeded in it being really girly because it came out too cutesy for me and I t0ok it off almost immediately. So instead I went with Sinful Color’s Sugar Sugar. I used Konad’s plate m57 for the fishnet pattern. Since we’re getting close to Valentine’s Day I thought I’d add the lip accent on my ring finger. I almost forgot to add that I added a french tip with Sinful Color’s Black on Black. I finished it off with two coats of Essie’s To Dry For, my favorite top coat.

This morning I ordered 18 new nail polishes…I can’t wait til they arrive!
