Day 327: China Glaze – Flying Dragon

Hey Dolls,

Well what do we have here? an oldie but goodie. Today I have China Glaze’s Flying Dragon it was originally from their Neon Ink Collection, but I believe it is permanently part of their core colors now. Flying Dragon OMG is an awesome color it is a neon purple/magenta that has tons of amazing pink and blue glitter in it. Amazeballz. Like I said it is a neon polish and  in case you weren’t aware, neons dry to a semi-matte finish. If you don’t like that, simply slap on a shiny top coat like I did and you’re good to go. In my opinion it’s MUCH more stunning shiny – you’re just not doing the polish justice and you may or may not like it matte. I don’t know if my pictures do this polish justice but I took pictures of it bare and with a top coat to see if I could capture how amazingly unique this polish is I love it. If you don’t have this in your collection you must go out and buy it right now. lol Now on to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 325: OPI – Super Bass Shatter

Hey Dolls,

I know what your thinking omg another shatter polish I am all shattered out why do we need another one? Well I will tell you why. This one is called Super Bass Shatter from OPI’s Nicki Minaj Collection. Super Bass Shatter is a pretty pinkish purple though, leaning on fuchsia is has tons of tiny shimmer particles in it. This one is really unique it does dry matte but an awesome clear coat brings the shininess back to life. There isn’t much to say about it, but it shatters and it is a sparkly purplish metallic shatter I love how unique this one is. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel….

Day 320: China Glaze – Drawn To You

Hey Dolls,

Yet again I have another polish from the China Glaze Magnetix Collection this one is called Drawn To You. Drawn To You  is  a dusty Purple magnetic polish. The formula on this color is very dense and if you’re in a rush you could very easily get away with one coat. I did Two coats. First I did my “base” color coat and did the magnet part on the Second coat to make sure it was all even and covered. I was kinda let down with the CG magnet. It seems a little weak, no? Regardless of the weak magnet I still really like this polish and the effect it creates. I love this shade because it’s unique dusty purple, I don’t have anything in my collection like this at all. I really like the magnetic polish trend but I really want to see different colors being done. It seems everyone is released the same shades and I am disappointed by this. I don’t know if its possible to put the magnetic particles in lighter shades but we shall see what happens with this trend. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 300: China Glaze – Octa Gone Wild

Hey Dolls,

I have an oldie but goodie for you today it is called Octa Gone Wild from China Glaze Kaleidoscope Collection that is now discontinued (sad face) but never fear there is always evil bay I mean ebay where you might be more than you want to pay but if you want it’s there. anywoodoodle Octa Gone Wild is  is a light purple lavender with tons of awesome holographic goodness. This is a gorgeous color I love the dusty lavender holoness GORGEOUS.  Unlike the OMG! Collection, the Kaleidoscope collection loves the top coat. Instead of chipping, I found it was almost rubbing away?  I really want to try the Nfu-Oh Aqua Base – I heard it’s amazing for holographic polishes as a base. We shall see. It goes on sheer at first but it is build-able to complete opaqueness. I took several pictures of it indoors and out doors in the sunshine (Sunny California). On to the nail porn, 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 296: OPI Sand-erella

Hey Dolls,

I’m taking old school again today I have a fun holo for you it is called Snad-erella from OPI’s Summer For Shore Collection. Sand-erella is a sheer pale purple holo.  Sand-erella is more of a sleeper holo with a purple/greenish grey duochrome sheen. It’s not a in your face holo like OPI DS  Original. Yes it is pretty holo but compared to DS original it’s more of a subdued holo. But I still love it anyways. You may need 3 to 4 coats it builds up rather nicely it’s a glorious linear holo that is a pale purple love it. You can also add a top coat to this baby and it does not dull. I took tons of pictures indoors and outdoors just to show you how great the holo on this baby is. The Summer For Shore Collection is discontinued but you can find it on ebay. Good Luck on to the nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……

Day 295: China Glaze – Visit Me In Prism

Hey Dolls,

I’m taking it old school today, today I have Visit Me In Prism from China Glaze’s Kaleidoscope Collection. Visit Me In Prism is a silvery lilac holo. The Kaleidoscope collection is more of a scattered holo rather than a linear holo like the OMG collection. The formula on this one  is top notch. It’s thin and manageable, and it dries faster than any polish I’ve ever used. Lightning fast. it is sheer on the first coat, but after a few coats it becomes opaque and gorgeous.The main difference between the Kaleidoscopes and the OMGs is the size of the holographic particles. The Kaleidoscopes have larger particles and the holographic effect isn’t as smooth and linear as the OMGs. They may look like glitter, but these polishes aren’t glittery at all. They’re completely smooth, no chunks, no grit. These collections have been discontinued you can still find them on ebay if your willing to pay for them. I took tons of pictures indoors and outdoors in the sun to show you the holo effect. Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..
