OPI - Electric Eel

My moms best friend gave me a bag of like 40 random polishes the other day, and one of them was OPI Electric Eel. I know it is gorgeous over black but I wanted to see it over top of a similar green. I chose this random Icing with no name.

This is taken outside in semi cloudy weather at like 9 p.m. 3 coats random Icing and 1 coat Electric Eel + SV.

It's hard to capture the shimmer flash from gold to green. Here it is indoors by the stove light. Why yes I was just basting a roast child why do you ask? *picks gumdrops off the door*

I love that old formula smell! *huffs*

Liquid Euphoria - Bliss

So this is Bliss! Apparently dupey to Clarins 230 (aka the pee of the unicorn). It is truly beautiful, but I am giving it away to my dear friend miss kittentoes.

This is 1 coat of Bliss over top of OPI Can You Dig It? with no topcoat.

I love that the shimmer shifts from pink to orange to green. It can be a bit tricky to catch on camera.

In overcast lighting or indoor lighting you have to hold your hands at very specific angles in very specific positions to get the fabulous colour shift. In the full sun.. it's pretty special though ;o) Unfortunately the day I took these pics there was minimal sun outside.

I used a bit of the Bliss and mixed it into my 230 franken, which was at the time a mixture of Urban Decay Burnout, Milani Totally Cool, a bit of CND Ice Blue Shimmer and some random purple Icing colour. Here it is over top of OPI Can You Dig It?

Blurry = awesome!

Franken is also going to kittentoes and she will make it all into beauty-full jewels! She has a wicked tutorial on her makeupalley profile if you were interested in dabbling yourself. Pin It

Liquid Euphoria - Euphoric

#2 out of the trio of precious beauties. This is 1 coat of Liquid Euphoria Euphoric over top of Essie Smooth Sailing. Perhaps not the best canvas to display the awesomeness that is Euphoric but gorgeous none the less! Please excuse the random wipquozn (whip-kwah-zen) stuck to my finger here. (inside light in case you couldn't tell..)

Check out this blue fabulousness! (muchly the same as the duochrome action in Elated)

I realize now that this is the only outdoor picture I took of this combo and it is blurry! (on purpose so pretty!)

Stay tuned tomorrow for Liquid Euphoria Bliss! Boring to those of you from the board who have already seen these pics. I will get creative asap! I plan to swatch all my holos next time there is a good 1-2 days of sunshine ;o) Pin It

Liquid Euphoria - Elated

I found this in a dusty a few months ago. I asked if I could buy it and the owner said no :( I boohooed on the board about it and pushed the pain out of my heart. A few days after starting my new job I thought.. I am going back! This time I made an offer. Always offer never ask! I came home 3 Liquid Euphorias richer, and today I am going to show you Elated.

This is 1 coat over Wet & Wild Black Creme with no topcoat. Sorry for my ugmo cleanup :\

In full sun it is sparkly amazingness

But in indoor lighting, at just the right angle, it's amazeBALLZ ;o)

I was able to catch some of the mojo outside in some shade too

These polishes are quite thin. I would never even attempt to wear them alone. Mostly because they are so valuable, but also because I hear they take quite a long time to dry, and I think they look fabulous layered. More bang for the buck! I cannot attest to the dry time because I was only swatching. No matter how long they take to dry though, they are worth it! Pin It

OPI - DS Glamour

Another amazing gift from my lovely friend Miss Moxie! Mrs. Moxie actually ;o) Anyhoo! On to pics! (I am posting them as big as it lets me so please click for better detail) Pardon my shabby finger placement etc. I am still learning!

3 coats with 1 coat of CND Super Shiny topcoat. Applied like buttah! Loves it! Pin It

OPI - My Private Jet (original.. but which one?)

A very dear friend of mine sent this to me as an early birthday gift. Please click on the pics for better detail!

This polish is amazing. I absolutely adore it. This is 3 coats with 1 coat of CND Super Shiny Topcoat. Sort of hard to come by unless you want to pay out the butt on the bay of all evil or unless you have horseshoes up the butt like my dear friend Moxie! Thanks Moxie!! <3 Pin It

It is born!

Hello and welcome to Spit & Polish. I am ReecesPeeces from MUA ( and this is my blog. It's probably going to be a bit shakey at first. There is a lot of tweaking that needs to be done. I'm not entirely happy with the layout and I don't actually own a camera.. (boyfriend does.. NICE one but I am not allowed to use it at the moment *grumblegrumble*)

I doubt anyone is actually going to read this puppy, and I am ok with that! More of a scrapbook for my obsession ;o)

Onwards to peekchures! Pin It
