China Glaze - Strawberry Fields + Bad Kitty

Wtf I bought this ages ago. Why the F did I not wear it? It's totally gorgeous!

Bad Kitty was one of my first lems. I was super pleased to get it. I really really love this glitter. It can be worn alone, and is relatively opaque in 3 coats. If you are really anti VNL you may still want a base.

It is past my bedtime. I am over tired and waiting for my bf to get out of the shower so I can cut his hair. He will, as usual, end up accusing me of cutting his hair like Judge Judy to keep the hot babes at bay. *whistles*

I have posted this orange before, but I have yet to post Mango Madness which reminds me of my pal Amy. *waves*

Orange is so bright and fun. I need more orange! Wait.. I have several oranges I have not swatched.. I must do this.. Also.. I need more orange. Pin It

Monday Randoms

I am getting excited about my impending first flight! I am flying to Edmonton to visit miss moxie :D

Random green icing avec Kleancolor Starry Meteor

This I cannot WAIT to thin and swatch. I need thinner though :\

Lemon fizz is so full of awesome. As is Whitecap!

It looks a little tip heavy.. which it sort of was because I put it on too fast and thick.. but it did not look that harsh sans macro.

Clearly my application.. was not awesome. Also these pics are not showing how awesome and glittery and fabulous Whitecap is. One of my favourite layering polishes! LOVE!

And now I want some wine gums..

Billie - Silver

Aptly named! This is a fabulous silver polish. Accent is Zoya Dovima.

My cleanup was subpar. I tend to overclean with mattes so I was a little light on the cleanup with the accent there :\ Pin It

Bloom - Vancouver

Another awesome polish from my dear friend at shattermeclaire. This time it is a gorgeous pink creme from Bloom called Vancouver. How appropriate! I am sitting in Vancouver right now ;o)

This is 3 coats with SV. Such a lovely dusty peachy pink!

The formula was a bit on the thick side but nothing a little thinner couldn't fix. That being said, it wasn't really that difficult to work with and it levelled out nicely without streaks.

Sorry for being a crappy blogger lately. I leave before the sun comes out and when I get home I have like 3 hours before I have to shower and go to sleep. I am really picky about posting stuff that I think is flawed. For instance I had a hard time posting these because I have a barely visible wound. I need to a) become less lazy and b) be less picky!

Glitter Gal - Light As A Feather, Frappe & Lizard Belly

A very sweet lady sent these to me. She is having a giveaway right now. You should pop on over! They had to travel quite a way to get to Canada. (apologies for my borked pinky cuticle)

Please click on these pictures for a better idea of what they look like!

Light as a Feather. I tried swatching this one without a base and I didn't like the application. I tried it over a white creme and also did not like. This is 2 coats over top of Barielle Hydrading Ridge Filler. If you have it, you know it dries to a slightly milky finish. Perfect combo.

This isn't a punch in the face holo. Judging from what people had said about trying to franken the mystical white holo with the spectraflair pigment, it is hard to keep it white as the pigment is silver/grey. It is still a holo. It is gorgeous and subtle and I love it.


Sorry for the blurry shot. Illustrates the holo though!

Next up is Frappe. This one is quite sheer. It is a lovely light purpley pink. The holo is much stronger in this one. This is 2 coats no base no top.

Last but not least is Lizzard Belly. Lizzard Belleh. Now I have Outkast stuck in my head. (Lick you like a lizzard when I'm slizzard.)

This is 2 coats no base no top. I will let you know when I remove it if it stains or not. I hope it doesn't.. I just realized now that I put a highly opaque forest green on my nails with no base coat. ANYHOO! This puppy is pretty thick. Very opaque. This is 2 coats but I could have gotten away with 1 if I was more careful. So dark it is almost black, but it is certainly green.

Here is a bottle shot beside Nubar Reclaim

As I was outside taking pictures I noticed that what I thought were white roses are actually green?

also blurry :S
