Orange Pop!

Christy at KB Shimmer has some of the best colors and glitters around. This is Orange Pop over one coat of Catrice Orange Drops for a little extra depth.

New post! Faded Dot Gradient

Poor, poor neglected blog, life has been happening and you've been left alone.  I do have a new post for you! I have raely, if ever, bought cream polishes from indie makers, but Cult Nails had a half price flashsale and I jumped! So glad I did, too. Faded is a perfect gray, opaque in two thicker coats, although I used three thin. I accented with a gradient of OPI Funky Dunkey and a few dots.  Sadly, shrinking Seche over the top.

The Drugstore Polishes I'm Keeping!

I was sent a collection of Sally Hansen Triple Shine polishes for an honest review. While I'm not a huge fan of the limited palette (from my perpective) the colors apply like butter with the large flat rounded brush and with the topcoat, these polishes last until you remove them! I went five FIVE days before changing out my mani. Unheard of! (the tip missing from my left pointer was the result of a run-in with a knife) The topcoat isn't fast dry, but wow. wow.  Long wear and wet look shine. wow.
Play Koi is a tomato red jelly- three coats with topcoat, although for a day's wear I'd skip the topcoat. You don't need it for shine!
