Shimmer Polish Julie

This is 1 coat of Shimmer Julie over black.

Julie is much too freaking intense to even describe. It's a million different colors and sizes. Yum. The formula on this one was a little bit chunkier than the other Shimmer polishes I've tried.



In the sunlight.


You can buy this Shimmer Polish here. :)

Golden Rose Matte 10 & Matte Velvet 104

I adore matte nails. But, I almost never wear them since they aren't known for good wear and lotion takes the effect away. And with me, around lotion and in water working with my hands all day- you can see why this is a total disaster. However, when I have some good down time- I love a good matte polish.

This is 2 coats of Golden Rose Matte 10.

10 is the perfect dark blue shimmery matte. Application was buttery and just looking at it now makes me sigh.



This is 2 coats of Golden Rose Matte Velvet 104.

104 is a metallic-glass flecked like shimmery dark blue with silver shimmer. In the bottle it looks like it's going to be similar to a OPI Suede polish but it's much less flat on the nail.



Aren't these lovely?
Again, I bought them here

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels

I saw some swatches of the Golden Rose Jolly Jewels floating around on the internet and I knew instantly I had to have them. Problem is, the Golden Rose USA store doesn't carry any of the new collections (that I've noticed). So I had to do a little digging but I finally got my hands on them.

This is 3 coats of Golden Rose 109.

109 is a light pink jelly based polish with white and pink glitter. It's so girly that I could write it off as so not my style but the fact that it's so interesting looking.. hooks me.



This is 2 coats of 113.

113 is a dark pink based polish with gold and pink glitter. Also very girly but interesting.



This is 3 coats of 111.

111 is a blue jelly based polish with green and silver glitter. And it is packed with glitter!



This is 3 coats of 105.

105 is a purple jelly based polish with green hex glitter and purple glitter. Reminds me of something but i can't put my finger on it.



Okay, I am obsessing over these. These are wonderful! They are amazingly fun glitters that also have good coverage. I couldn't ask for more... except I could ask for more colors.

Again, since these weren't available in the US (or anywhere that I know of) I bought them from here. I've ordered from this company 3 times and haven't had any problems. They are quick to ship (although sometimes international shipping just takes a while) and the prices are decent.

Late St Patty's Mani

It seems like this year has been really awful for illness. I've just caught the flu. I've had the flu twice, bronchitis, and a cough that never wanted to leave. I'm ready for spring and warm weather.

This is 1 coat of CrowsToes Frog's Breath over Illamasqua Smash. I didn't actually wear this on St. Patty's day. I wore this about two weeks before and kept getting asked if I was "early for the holiday". But now that I've finally gotten around to posting- it's late!

CrowsToes has me totally sold. I need to stay far, far away from Llarowe.

When All Else Fails.. Glitter.

This is 2 coats of Tins The Foxy Lady.

I had a couple really bad breaks and wasn't really feeling polish because of how crappy my nails looked. So what's a girl to do? I pulled out my fun, harder to find glitter and slapped that puppy on.

And you know what?
It made me feel better.

Shimmer Maria & OPI Ogre The Top Blue

This is 1 coat of Shimmer Maria over OPI Ogre The Top Blue.

Maria is a dark blue glitter polish. I believe it has other colors mixed in but it's hard to tell.



Again, obsessing over this polish. It's so complex and lovely. :)

Again, Shimmer Polish can be purchased here.

Recent Nfu Oh Manicures

This is 2 quick coats of Nfu Oh 65.


This is 1 coat of 51 over black.

I really wish I could capture the flashes of color this flakie makes. It's one of my favorites because the color shift is so broad.

Rimmel Sage All The Rage

This is 2 coats of Rimmel Sage All The Rage.

Sage All The Rage is a greyish green creme. I loved it. It was soft and dusty. The formula was okay. I don't think it was anything special but it wasn't bad either.



 I bought this polish at Walmart and I believe the price was just under $2 for .27 fl oz.
