Day 313: China Glaze – Glittering Garland

Hello Dolls,

I’m so sorry I have been MIA for awhile I went back to work after my long vacation and I’ve been a little tied up but I’m back I know I owe you a few post’s so bare with me. Today’s polish is called Glittering Garland from China Glaze’s Let It Snow Collection, Holiday 2011. Glittering Garland is a dark green semi-transparent jelly base with green micro-glitter nail polish color. I am madly in love with the light Green shimmer in this because it’s not really a bright, in-your-face, type of shimmer. This is more of a “glow from beneath” shimmer that lights up the creamy base. The formula for Glittering Garland is absolutely great and only takes Two coats to become opaque. Glittering Garland is the star of China Glaze’s 2011 holiday collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…

Day 270: Sally Hansen – Glass Slipper

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun polish for you today it is called Glass Slipper from Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color line. Glass Slipper is like snow in a bottle of nail polish, it is a  sparkling topper with a mix of different size icy silver flakies floating in a slightly milky clear jelly base. I love this one it was hard for me to find it but I found mine on ebay for cheap but after I received it I found two bottles at my rite aid lol oh well I have it that is all that matters. This is so pretty, in person but it kind of hangs back in photographs. It just doesn’t show up as it does when you are looking directly at it. Glass Slipper is a nicely behaved topper polish. Smooth jelly base and plenty of flakies. This polish applies smoothly and the flakies are easy to work with. They go on a tad unevenly but it isn’t a major deal and easy enough to even out. This topper dries quickly and needs no  top coat to make it utterly shiny and sparkly. I love the faceted bottle it comes in so pretty and a little gem on the front I’m in love. It  is available in drugstores and other retailers that carry Sally Hansen. It runs between six and seven dollars a bottle. A little steep, for Sally Hansen, if you ask me but oh well I love pretty polishes and I will pay it if I want it bad enough lol. I took a few pictures by itself but it doesn’t show up and I also took some with it over Wet N’ Wild’s Ink Well onto the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 262: OPI – Animal-istic

Hey Dolls,

I have another polish from OPI  Muppet’s Collection it is called Animal-istic. Animal-istic is a bright red with a hint of orange, it has small regularly shaped flecks that flash red to a bit of orange depending on the light. My pictures didn’t capture that to well you just have to see that for yourself in person. It is a lively red and I love that it is not dark or heavy looking I’m not mush of a red girl but I would wear this one because it is a bright red with flakies 😀 It had a nice formula but it does take three to four coats to become opaque because it is on the sheer side. Other than that it is awesome. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 260: OPI – Meep- Meep- Meep

Hey Dolls,

Today I have a fun polish for you it is called Meep-Meep-Meep from OPI’s The Muppet’s Collection. Meep-Meep-Meep is a beautiful deep, blue toned, reddened magenta jelly base that is full of delicate, iridescent floating flakies. The flakies are magical, flashing back in pink, fuchsia, red, gold and even blue sparks, at the right angle. This polish isn’t really a color I would normally buy or wear but I’m a sucker for a complete collection and glass flakies in my polish. The formula for this polish is OPI-licious. Smooth and easy to work with. I had no trouble controlling how this polish applied as it flowed off of that fabulous Pro-Wide brush. I had very little cleanup and very little dry time was good. Do I recommend that you grab it if you see it? Definitely. It isn’t the longest lasting polish I have ever met, but it is beautiful and well worth owning and wearing. My pictures really don’t show the gorgeousness of the polish – it’s much juicier and glass-flecky and gorgeous in real life. It’s absolutely dazzling, especially in the sun. I used three coats. It covered really well, typical of OPI quality. I think is an all-around pleasing color and that even though it might not be the attention getter among all the crazy glitters in this collection, I bet it’d look great on lots of people if they gave it a chance! On to the nail porn until next, nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 225: OPI – Pepe’s Purple Passion

Hey Dolls,

I have another polish from OPI Muppet’s Collection, this one is called Pepe’s Purple Passion. Pepe’s Purple Passion is a deep purple looked great in the bottle, but on the nail is much more red toned, which adds an interesting shade to the overall plum hue. Equally fun is the tiny flake-like particles in gold and lighter pink, But they barely show up on the nail you cane see the flakies in the bottle. This one becomes opaque in two to three coats, this one is basically a burgundy with submerged flaky particles. The base color is a bit of a snooze, but I like the submerged flecks. If you’re into plum colors, here’s one for you. I’m not into this one so much I just love the flakes, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 216: L’Oreal – Owl’s Night

Hey Dolls,

I have an awesome polish for you today it is called Owl’s Night by L’oreal it is from their Project Runway Limited Edition collection. Owl’s Night is aptly named it is beautiful. It is dark and mysterious and it does evoke the creature for which it is named. Owl’s Night is a dark, greyed purple base packed with duochrome color shifting gold glass fleck shimmer. I know you can’t see the purple I think that is because the the duochrome gold is really strong in this polish it makes it almost look like a brown color. It has a decent formula. It is thin but not runny. It was easy to apply and control and I didn’t have to do much cleanup. Just a few coats and you have full coverage. Dry time was pretty fast with this polish. This is the first L’oreal polish I have ever tried in my life I haven’t used it as a full manicure yet but I will update you on wear later on I just wanted to show how pretty it is first, well enjoy dolls until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……
