Quick Post Today!

I usually don't do patriotic designs, but after I saw a pin on Pintrest I HAD to do this one.  I used Sally Hansen "Navy Baby", my FAVORITE red ever OPI Color So Hot It Berns, a random white and my white Konad polish for the stamp.  

Yesterday I did some crackle, which I don't do very often.  I used the hell out of it when it first came out so I was kinda burnt out on it.  But THIS is a favorite.  I love neons.  I used Orly Beach Cruiser, GlowStick, Melt your Popsicle, and then Color Club, the Lime Starts Here.  I used OPI Black Shatter as well.

Thanks for looking!!!

The Nail Junkie

Today I have a beautiful collection of polish to show you!  A friend of mine Aleta at The Nail Junkie made these amazing polishes.  She has tons of pretty polishes for sale, but this line isn't out quite yet!  Her jelly line is really nice and I have two of those as well.  

The collection consists of four polishes.  

The need for these adorable polishes started at one of Aleta's nail and wine nights.  I saw the new collection but knew that I hadn't see them on her Etsy page.  The little pony one is what caught my eye.  Afterwards she had told me I could buy them before she sold them if I wanted to, so of course, pay day I was at her house!  All of the swatches are done with Essie Grow Stronger and Nail Envy as a base and topped with Seche Vite.

This is a nail wheel of all of them, alone, over white then over black.

First up we have Wizard.  Wizard has what looks like, blue, pink and purple hex, bar and micro glitter in it.  The polish went on really good.  It was thick but I had no issues getting the hex glitters out or the bar glitters.  I wore it over Zoya Blu and Essie French Affair.  I love how the glitters take on the colors being worn.  You can totally see the blues and the pinks in the polish.

Next up is Fairy.  Fairy is super pretty with the stars in it.  I loved this over Butter Londons Fiver polish.  When I showed the picture to Aleta she was happy that you could see the different colors in the stars, the pink and purples.  No issues getting the stars out of the bottle.  Just rolled the bottle for a few seconds before I started using it.  

This is my second favorite of the group.  Mermaid is a amazing polish with what looks like green, teal and maybe a blue with a white micro glitter polish.  This was a little on the thick side but it actually worked great because it gave me really good coverage.  I started with a base of OPI Austin-Tatious Turquoise to just give me a small amount of a base color.  

Last but DEFINITELY not least, Pony.  This polish is so fun!  I LOVE the colors in it.  It has yellow, blue, green, pink and purple hex glitters along with a holo micro glitter.  I wore this over white and black cremes.  Again no issues getting the glitters out and like the rest of this collection dried quickly.  THIS was my favorite of the group and the first one I wore when I got them home.  

This collection of polish was a fun one!  I got a lot of compliments on all of them, mostly from guys surprisingly!  When I wore the Fairy I had one guy tell his wife "why can't YOUR nails look like that!?!?"  Oops, sorry lady lol  All of these polishes dried very quick, applied very well and I'm super glad I got them! Aleta has a whole bunch of beautiful polishes over at her Etsy page.  Make sure you follow her on her Facebook Page as well to be in the loop with her new stuff!

Aleta, thank you for allowing me to do this post before you listed these adorable little bottles of perfection!
