SO I've been on a kick...

trying untrieds, some bronzy-red polishes that I wouldn't normally gravitate towards. Bear Pawlish Penny Dreadfulls, KB Shimmer Men are From Mar-Sala, Ninja Polish Ambrosia have all graced my digits lately. I'm ready for lime greens and corals again, what with this record-breaking heat wave we're having- mid 80's daily! About 20 degrees above normal days and 25 above nights. Ready for winter, please!

Vapid Lacquer Snow Fox and Enchanted Polish Daydream

A couple of gorgeous finish polishes this week, Vapid SNow Fox has a slight holo finish in a sheer pale gray crelly, with added multichrome flakies and gold shimmer. It took three coats for good coverage. LOVE this kind of complicated polish- very easy to apply with a smooth finish. The Vapid brush is flat and quite wide, good for my lare deeply curved nail beds. Enchanted Polish Daydream is a blueish mint holo with a pink shimmer. This was opaque in two thicker coats and wore like iron, one TINY chip in four days. Brilliant polishes, both.

Honestly, I've been painting my nails....

Grooving on Glitter Gal

Had so much fun wearing Black Sparkles (wear time 4 days no chipping!) I had to pull a couple untrieds out of the Helmer. Four coats each of Turbulence and Bondi Blue, but they are both very thin and floated on perfectly. Yes, the holo is crazy good on these with none of the chalkiness of the Nfu-Oh line. Very happy, with HK Girl topcoat.

Glitter Gal Black Sparkles-

Throw back Monday with this oldie but goodie, gifted to me by the ever effervescent Crumpet. Needed black for a color challenge and didn't want to go flat or super holo. GG Black Sparkles has tiny holo and silver glitter in it with a subtle Spectraflair addition. One coat perfection, although I touched up a few places that looked a bit sheer in the pictures. HK Girl topcoat.

Majorly gorgeous and fall colors for today.The stunning and rare Spellcaster from Vapid Lacquer, a custom for our Hella Holo Facebook group. Mainly purple with shifty holo magic to indigo, bronze, olive gold and even silver. There's even multichrome flakies in there!! Shown with topcoat.

There's also the seasonal Lilypad Lacquer Skulloween, a deep tomato orange holo with tiny gold flakes and appear as dark specks in the polish. Beautiful!! Also topcoated.

Zoya Designer- Fall 2012

I sold off all my Zoya a couple years ago- only kept this smoky dark cream collection that was a birthday gift from my international birthday group- of which 90% of the dozen girls are still corresponding with each other! Good times, good chat, sweet ladies. I always forget some of these need two coats, they may get some art later.
excuse the patch on my ring finger- trying to grow out a tear
I'm missing the red, Rehka, probably sold/gave it away because I never wear red....
