Orly - Monster Mash and RIP (HALLOWEEN!!)

Last week I went into my local Sally's and asked about some of the Halloween collections, I was just curious as to when they would have them in. The lady went in the back and grabbed the Orly collection for me and said they don't go on sale till the end of the month but I could buy some (don't I feel special). I grabbed 2 of the polishes, and I just couldn't wait to swatch them.

Monster Mash. A clear base with green glitter in various sizes (hexagon, and bar). The green glitter is also holographic!! The formula was perfect, I only used 1 coat over black. This is also my new favourite Halloween polish.

RIP. A black base with orange glitter (hexagon, and small round sparkles). The formula on this was good again, I used 2 coats for full coverage. 

I really regret not buying the other glitter polish in this collection, I will be running to grab that the second they hit the shelves.
I hope you enjoyed these swatches, thanks for reading!

Colorful Striping with a twist!

Today I have some colorful stripe nail art for you, and I added some glitter to give it a funky twist.
For this I used: Color Club Stripers in Pink & Purple, and Color Club - Sugar Plum Fairy.

This mani was so fun and easy to do, and I loved the end result.
I have a few days off and I will try to get more posts for you all.

Thanks for reading! xox

Blue and Purple Gradient with some glitter!

At work I am in nail polish heaven (and makeup heaven), so of course I had to buy some new colors. I ended up purchasing Nails Inc. - Pudding Lane a few days ago, only to go back and grab Nails Inc. - Topping Lane and Sephora by OPI - To The Glitter End.
I knew I wanted to use the Sephora by OPI polish immediately, and I definitely didn't expect to do a gradient.. but it's something fun for work, and a lot better than simply putting glitter over 1 color.
For this I used: Color Club - Take Me To Your Chateau, China Glaze - Spontaneous, and Sephora by OPI - To The Glitter End.

I really love the way this turned out, the blue and purple together with that gorgeous glitter. I'm in love!

I hope you're all having an amazing day, and don't forget to enter my giveaway!

Nails Inc. - Pudding Lane

I have wanted this polish for so long, and I'm so happy I finally have it.
I only needed 2 coats for full coverage, and the formula was great. It's a little bumpy because of the glitter, but nothing a little top coat can't fix.

If you don't own this polish already, you definitely should get it. Everyone kept complimenting me on this, and now I just want the other 3 polishes in this collection!

Thanks for reading, have an amazing day!

Barielle - Gotta Have Fate

I got this polish several months ago in a set of 6 Barielle polishes. I completely forgot that I hadn't used this one until the other day (can you tell I'm busy? lol), so here it is!

I'm really sad I forgot about this, this polish would have been perfect in the summer.. such a gorgeous coral shade.
Also, I have like 6 days off soon so I will definitely have more posts for you guys, don't worry!

Thanks for reading xox

Color Club - Lavendarling

I got this polish in a mixed Color Club set at Winners, and as usual there were no names on the polishes. After looking around I'm pretty sure this is Lavendarling, it's a gorgeous shade of purple.. not a pastel, and not too dark.

I wore this polish last week after I got it with an accent nail of Color Club - Magic Attraction. I think the two polishes looked amazing together, but what polish doesn't look good with holo glitter?

Also, I really want to do more nail art but I've been so uninspired lately, so I would love if you guys would give me some suggestions!

China Glaze - I'm Not Lion with some stripes!

The other day my boyfriend bought me a few polishes since I've been too busy to polish shop, and this was one of them. I saw swatches of this polish and fell in love, I knew I needed it.

I'm Not Lion is part of the China Glaze On Safari collection, it's a gold glitter with silver and holo glitter in there as well. It changes color in the light, and it's stunning. I only needed 2 coats for full coverage, and the formula was excellent.. especially for a glitter.

I decided I needed to add a little something on top, and I didn't have a lot of time so I just went with some simple stripes!

Does anyone else love this polish as much as me?

I'm currently enjoying several days off work, and I plan on spending them all relaxing lol. I hope you all had a great long weekend, thanks for reading. xox
