yeah Duo/Multi chromes! ILNP Bishop

I had searched for Ozotic 507 for years in vain, when ILNP came out with a line of duo/multi chromes. Bishop is a strong gold/green changer with a hint of blue around the corners. Lemming crushed, these don't need black underneath as the Ozotics do. Three coats with topcoat. Easy application and clean up.

Literary Lacquers NOTD Strong Steady Hand

quick post, pics speak for themselves- two coats, VERY topcoat hungry, easier than glitter removal. LOVE!!! More peach than coral in regular light.

Maybelline Colorshow Nail Tattoos

Water decals over two Zoya neutrals, Chanelle and Emilia. Super easy to put on, not too thick, but one layer of top coat doesn't totally smooth them down. OK for a nice change from nail art, found on sale at Dollar Tree!

In the Running for the Best Orange Ever- Lilypad Lacquer Tempting Toffee

Not necessarily the best orange HOLO, CREAM, Jelly, NEON, you get my drift, but oh, my such a deep shimmery rainbow goodness of fall orange. The color is a tad less red than my ALL TIME FAVE ORANGE EVER Fingerpaints Cordur-Orange, but the rainbows and just the amazing COLORRRRRR of it all makes it right up there with the five best. Wow, more caps in one post than I usually use in a month, but LOOK! Two coats with Poshe over. Last two pics were taken with filler flash, the first three under the Ott light.

Awaiting Autumn, but Still Loving Summer Colors!

Deborah Lippmann gave us the 80s Rewind collection this summer, a deeply pigmented collection of brights. I've used three here to dip my toe back into the nail art game with a simple dotticure- two coats of the yellow, btw, it's amazing! Poshe over.

Enchanted Polish Autumn

So how do they squeeze all these colors into one bottle? Gold, olive, mauve, rust, copper...and rainbows! EP Autumn is a warm toned masterpiece of multichromatic holographic yumminess. Two coats with topcoat. Yes, all these are the same polish, I have heard rumors it will be available shortly in the next restock!

Literary Lacquers Again! Yeah Buddy!

"Disclaimer" These were sent to me for an honest review

Jack Rose and Aunt Beast. Gold and silver. I picked these two since they both have a little something something extra beyond the "normal" brilliant rainbow holographics. Jack Rose is a light brown-gold jellish holo with gold sparks in it and Aunt Beast is a metallic  silver holo with taupe microflakes. Both were thin and needed two coats for coverage, I used three as photos were still showing some vnl. 

I love these office friendly polishes that explode under sun and halogen lighting. Both are a refreshing change from the darker colors taking over fall right now (hello, Florida, have you heard, it's almost Autumn, enough with the 90 plus degree days already!!) And the little extra sparks make these really special- I've yet to try one of Amy's polish that even faintly reminded me of something I already have. They are unique and quite special.
No dulling with topcoat either!

NOTD Zoya Ombre Natural Deux- Mauves

I've got three of the second (Deux)  neutral Zoya Natural collection in a quick skittle/ombre. Best part is the application, these all started a little sheer but the second coat makes them dense and creamy. The Polish is a tad thicker than usual Zoyas and that makes it perfect for me!
