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 302: Nicole by OPI – Disco Dolls

Hey Dolls,

I have to start with saying that I’m not a fan of the Kardashians but I do love there nail polish collection from Nicole by OPI. With that said today I have Disco Dolls from the Kardashian Kolor Kollection from Nicole by OPI. I absolutely love this color I haven’t had anything in my collection like this or seen anything similar to this. Disco Dolls is a gold glitter that has gold micro-glitter & tons of multi-colored glitter in a clear base. Absolutely Fabulous this one is amazeballz. One thing I do hate is that Nicole by OPI brush are stubby a little short so it feels awkward in my hand when I paint. But on the plush side it is a wide brush so it helps the color to go on smooth and nicely. The formula on this one is smooth it dries a little gritty and matte but a great topcoat can fix that. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 297: Sally Hansen – Big Money

Hey Dolls,

I’m bringing it back into the future…. why does that remind me of a song??? I can’t quite place it hmmm now that, that’ll bug me all day on to today’s nail polish. Today I have for you Big Money from Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush Collection. Oh what a crush I have on this polish. LOVE IT. LOL Big Money is the quiet one in the collection, a cool-toned gold and lilac glitter combination that’s what I’d call elegant bling. I love how the colors mesh so well together drool…. Two to three coats can give you full coverage. It does dry a little on the gritty and matte side but even though Big Money is not an especially chunky glitter; it lays pretty flat on its own. I would still use a few coats of a top coat to smooth it out and make it even more shinier. I only swatched this one have yet to wear it in a full manni but I heard some people have had problems with this whole collection and it peeling off the nail in a whole pieces. I will have to test this out with my China Glaze strong Adhesion Base and see what happens. I’ll let you know on to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 294: China Glaze – Ray-Diant

Hey Dolls,

Last but surely not least the last polish in the China Glaze Prismatic Chroma Glitter Collection. This one is called Ray-Diant. Ray-Diant is a Gold/Pale Green microglitter polish with all sorts of different coloured glitters, both small and hex shaped medium, that sparkle like crazy, as well as duochrome that flashes green to gold depending on the light. I had no trouble with application; it’s quite thick like these dense glitters usually are, but it wasn’t problematic. It did dry gritty and a little matte but nothing a few coats of a clear top coat can’t handle to smooth it out. It becomes opaque in two to three coats and you have a wonderful pale green glitterbomb on your hands. Literally ba bum ba. lol I took several pictures indoors and outdoors and also over a black to show off the duochrome more better. I don’t know why but in the sun this one alone just looked like silver glitter, but over the black you can tell its green. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 287: Essie- As Gold As It Gets

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun top coat for you today it is called As Gold As It Gets from Essie Luxeffects Collection. As Gold As It Gets is flakes of gold glitter in a clear base. I have read that this is pretty much the same as the CND Sheer 24K Sparkle effect, I’m not sure because I don’t own it but if I do get it I will compare them for you. The flakies seem a little less dense in the Essie version. For those of you who didn’t want to purchase the whole CND set just for that effect this is a great alternative. The whole luxeffects collection is meant as topcoats for fun effects over other colors, some can be worn alone and some can’t. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this one alone, I took pictures of it alone it doesn’t show up on the nail very well. I also took some over Wet n’ Wild Ink Well, it looks awesome over black I love this one I think it belongs in anyone’s collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 286: China Glaze – Blonde Bombshell

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun gold polish for you today that is an amazing glitter bomb, it is called Blonde Bombshell from China Glaze Eye Candy 3D glitter Collection. Blonde Bombshell is various sized gold glitters. You have micro glitter,larger round glitter even  bar glitter all in a clear base. I love this glitter because I don’t own  much gold polish let alone a gold glitter. This one is very unique because of the various size and type of glitters in it. The bar glitter isn’t super noticeable unless you look at this polish up close, but it’s a nice surprise and gives this polish a little something extra. Blonde Bombshell’s formula is a bit thick; not enough so that I would thin it but still enough that I noticed some drag. This polish is very Vegas showgirl to me; it’s glamorous, flashy and fun. You could easily layer this if you wanted to go for a different look and maybe bring out each individual type of glitter in this polish more, but it also looks really lovely on its own. Like I said on previous posts of other shades in this collection, it was named after Marilyn Monroe and her movies. I love this whole collection. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 266: Wet N’ Wild – Give Me A Price Quote

Hey Dolls,

I have another glitter bomb for you today this one is called Give Me A Price Quote from Wet N’ Wilds Coloricon Ice Baby Collection. Give A Price Quote is a yellow gold glitter, it has small micro glitter as well as bar glitter. I’m on the fence with this one I’m not a huge fan of yellow golds but I make an exception for this one because it is packed with glitter :D. The formula is on thick side, the polish is a little dense so it is hard to get even coats on the nail, but three coats made it fully opaque. You can wear it alone or over another color to jazz up your manicure. This polish was $2.99 each for 0.34 fl. oz each.  Yes, a dollar more expensive than previous Wet’n’Wild ColorIcon polishes but I would like to point out that they are crammed full of glitter. Well worth the cost I think , Of course if you hate glitter….But who hates glitter???? NOT ME I LOVE GLITTER :D. The finish when it dries on this one is rough and it does soak up top coat like there is no tomorrow so just a few coats of top coats will help with that and it also dries a little matte no worries , all can be fix. This collection was exclusive to Walgreens. I also took some pictures of it over Wet N Wild Ink Well to show you how it looks layered over another polish. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..
