Day 317: China Glaze – Attraction

Hey Dolls,

I have another fun magnetic polish for yo today it is called Attraction from China Glaze’s Magnetix Collection. Attraction oh my heart! It’s a little on the streaky side when left un-magnetized, but get that sucker under the magnet and wow. It lights up like the night sky, the base shade getting darker and the silver shimmer becoming starkly contrastive. Takes a few tries to get used to application process, but it’s so, so worth it. The shimmer particles are larger than those in the other polishes I showed you already.  The design shows up really easily on this one. This was also a little sheer with one coat but the design covers up any bald patches. China Glaze recommends using only one coat with their magnetic polishes. I started off using two coats but one coat give a much better design. On to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 283: China Glaze-Some Like It Haute

Hey Dolls,

GLITTER BOMB GLITTER BOMB!!!!!!  Oh yes baby this polish I have for you today is a glitter bomb it is called Some Like It Haute from China Glaze Eye Candy 3D Glitter Collection. This is one intensely gorgeous glitter polish, some like it haute? yes yes oh yes I do like it haute. I know there are several other similar glitters out right now, but I like this one the best out of them. It’s a superfine black, blue-gunmetal and charcoal microglitter and larger round holographic glitter in a clear base. It goes on so easily and the microglitter combines with the holographic glitter to give it so much depth and insane sparkle. Definitely my favorite in the collection. It’s not lumpy, it doesn’t bubble, and the holographic shine looks like fireworks on the dark microglitter base. I love this glitter, I love this collection, I love everything about it. This collection is themed to to Marilyn Monroe and her movies. I love all the glitters and all the names on these. This is a great fun collection whether you are a fan of Marilyn or a fan of fantastic glitters this collection is a must have. I will do comparisons of all the dupes of this polish soon. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 278: Deborah Lippmann – Dancing In The Dark

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun polish for you today it is called Dancing In The Dark from Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Dance Music’ Mini Trio (Nordstrom Exclusive). Nordstrom describes Dancing in the Dark as “disco ball in the dark – glitter” which kind of made me laugh because aren’t all disco balls in the dark? Dancing In The Dark is a ton of gunmetal micro glitter and  larger holographic pieces.  It looks like a dark rainbow explosion on my nails. I love this one and it looks like a few other brands have dupes to this glitter also I will do a dupe post about this one very soon. It’s a bit on the sheer side but it builds nicely. It can become opaque in two to three coats. Glitter + Holo + Deborah Lippmann = perfection! It took me three coats to achieve full opacity but part of that has to do with the fact that this is a mini bottle and whenever I use mini brushes, it takes me a few extra strokes to get the polish opaque!  I really hope that Deborah Lippmann comes out with this in a full size because it’s gorgeous!  It’s the perfect winter polish with the dark grey base and then the holographic glitter just really pops! Dancing In Th Dark dries to a semi-matte and gritty texture, be warned – IT EATS TOP COAT! It took 3 coats just to feel smooth and after 6 hours or so it feels like it probably needs coat 4! Only issue I have with these, though from what I hear the other holographic glitters coming out have the same issues. That’s all I have to say tonight until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 275: Sally Hansen – Glitz Gal

Hey Dolls,

I have a glitter bomb for you today it is called Glitz Gal from Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush Collection. Glitz Gal looks all to familiar to me a few other brands have similar looking polishes I will do a comparison post soon on the “dupes”. Sally Hansen website says “Gem Crush Nail Color is High Impact Bling! Instant glam with finger-to-toe bling. This innovative full coverage glitter formula turns nails into jewelry that stays on wherever you go.” Glitz Gal is exactly that it is a charcoal gray micro glitter with medium round holo glitter throughout a clear base. Like I said earlier it looks like other polishes from other brands a few of those are Deborah Lippmann’s Dancing In The Dark, China Glaze Some Like It Haute, Wet N Wild’s Diamond In The Rough and Nails Inc. Sloane Square and probably a few others I can’t think of right now but I will do a dupe post soon and compare all of them. The formula on Glitz Gal was nice, not runny, but it was thin. Sparse at first but built nicely, it became opaque at two coats. But I did mine in three coats because I feel polish looks good it three coats, it might be an OCD thing not sure which lol. This polish has the same brush ad the Insta-Dri polishes – flat and wide. I like my brush wide the polish seems to glide on easier to me. You can find this collection if your lucky at your local drug stores Walgreens, CVS, Walmart etc. I found mine on ebay for a cheap price so I was happy I didn’t have to go searching for the whole collection. They retail for around $6.99 a bottle. That’s all for Glitz Gal on to the nail porn until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 249: Nicole by OPI – Follow Me On Glitter

Hey Dolls,

Today I reached 10 Follows on my blog I am so happy makes me feel like I’m doing something right here lol I hope to get many more and see where this little journey will take me. Thank you for coming along on this ride with me, just wanted to say thanks now on to the nail porn. Today’s polish is called Follow Me On Glitter it is from Nicole By OPI and it is from their Kardashian Kolor Collection. Ok I’m sorry I’m not into the Kardashian’s like some people I think they are a train wreck people can’t stop watching, but they do make a damn nice nail polish collection. Follow Me On Glitter is kind of hard to describe but I would say it is a charcoal gunmetal gray with a hint of khaki in it. It is a smoky tinted base with grey-silver and black micro glitter and red, green, yellow, pink magenta, orange, sky blue and silver larger round glitters throughout. It is so unique and very beautiful on the nails it is amazeballs. Only in some lights you can see the multi-colored chunks of glitters . Otherwise it is very subtle on the nail. I want to get a back up of this color because it is so unique and gorgeous. Nicole By OPI describes it as a glittery deep gray that always has something to say. Follow Me On Glitter is a rather fitting name. At first glance it looks like a dupe for China Glaze Some Like It Haute, Sally Hansen Glitz Gal, Deborah Lippmann Dancing IN The Dark, Wet N’ Wild Diamond In The Rough and Nail’s Inc. Sloane Square but not quite I will do a comparison as soon as my Nails Inc. polish arrives. I would say it is similar to those polishes but not exactly. The Formula on this one was great,perfectly even,smooth and opaque. Three coats and you have full opaqueness not bald spots no streaking , even smooth color. The brush is a little short and awkward to me the handle is long and easy to hold on to but when you get to the brush it is a little on the short side but all in all it was easy to apply the polish. Well on to the pictures dolls, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..
