Jessica — Summer Lovin'

Short and sweet today.

Jessica Summer Lovin' is a pastel peachy pink creme. Formula was really good on this. I picked this up at Marshall's in a box of 5-6 polishes for like $5.99. An awesome steal if you ask me!

This was 3 coats of Summer Lovin'. This is a great nude shade if your skintone isn't to the reddish side like mine is. I loved this polish but didn't think it looked that great on me. It pulled all of my red tones and made them even worse than they normally are. Lol. I would definitely use this for undies for some of those unruly glitters I love so much though.

Until next time~ :)

CrowsToes — Cheshire

Today I have something that's really exciting for me to share with you guys today!

CrowsToes is another indie brand that makes some fantastic glitter polishes. When I saw a few of their polishes reviewed on some other blogs, I fell in love with them! So finally when I saw that Llarowe had stocked them, I had to jump on that. Unfortunately I only managed to get 1 out of the 3 that I really want, but small victories, eh?

"Cheshire is a combination of purple, magenta, & chartreuse glitters in a clear base, combined with a little crazy cat magic just for good measure. :)"

Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favorite stories, so I was just over the top when I saw this polish.

(Please ignore my nubby pointer finger, I broke my nail at work. -_-)

Look at that sparkle! And them giant glitters in there! I didn't realize they were in there and had no problem getting them on the brush and on the nail.

This is 2 coats of CrowsToes Cheshire on top of OPI Road House Blues. I did have to use a bit of the dabbing method because there is SO MUCH glitter in this bottle, but otherwise application was really easy. I did use 2 coats of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite to smooth it all down.

Now I really must get my hands on Absolum — your potions master!

You can purchase CrowsToes at, Llarowe, and her BigCartel shop.

Until next time~ :)

Zoya — Sooki

Another post for you guys!

Today I have Zoya Sooki. This is a vibrant cherry red creme. I don't normally ever wear red polish but I wore this for the premiere of True Blood a few weeks ago. I was originally going to try a watermarble, but I ended up not having time to do one.

Sooki is kind of jelly-like so I needed 3-4 coats for full opacity. 3 coats would have done it, but I could still see a little bit of VNL so I went with 4 coats. This is a great formula and went on super smooth.

You can pick this up at Zoya's website or in retail stores for $8.

Until next time~ :)

The Hungry Asian — Bar Fight

So today's post kind of sucks.

Taking pictures of super dark polishes in a lightbox is apparently something I'm not good at. And obviously didn't realize how bad I was at it until I took this mani off and looked at the pictures.

The Hungry Asian Bar Fight is an awesome black sheer jelly based polish packed with bright blue micro glitter. I love Kae's polishes and am SO SAD that I took such horrible pictures of this polish. Lol. Let it be known that this is so much more awesome in person than what my pictures show.

This is 2 thin coats of Bar Fight over black. Great application, though it does eat top coat so a coat of Gelous may be in order before you use a fast dry topcoat like Seche Vite.

You can purchase Kae's polishes at her Etsy store. Minis are $4.50 and full sized are $9.25. She always has stock so you don't have to worry about crazy openings. Hehe.

Until next time~ :)

Nerd Lacquer — Home of the Untempered Schism

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great weekend. :)

Despite all the controversy surrounding polish these days, I'm still going to post polishes from my stash that I haven't posted yet even if they are no longer available.

So with that, here is my last Nerd Lacquer Home of the Untempered Schism. HotUS is a bronze shimmer base packed with multi colored and sized glitters. There's red, gold, black, blue holo, and green holo glitter. It's really quite an interesting color.

I had to use 3 coats of Home of the Untempered Schism to get full coverage. It was really easy to work with despite how packed with glitter this is. There's no fishing with this polish.

Unfortunately Nerd Lacquer is no longer available, but if you really want to get your hands on some you can check out ebay or swaps, but be prepared to spend an awful amount of money on these.

Until next time~ :)
