Pure Nail Lacquer - Glam Punch

Hi everyone!!

For Twinsie Tuesday, the theme is Summer Lovin'.  So I decided to share a new polish from Pure Nail Lacquer that totally makes me think of summer.


Glam Punch is a corally, peachy, orangey creme.  It's a bit on thick side, but it applies well and is opaque in two coats.  It also dries to a semi-matte finish.  I used no top coat for these swatches.

Doesn't this polish make you want to go and get a smoothie or something?  I really like the color!  What do you guys think of it?

Essie - Smooth Sailing

I decided to add an accent of gold glitter with an Homei polish from Japan.  I got it in a swap earlier this year.  I thought these two made an interesting combo.

What do you think of Smooth Sailing?  Did you ever pick it up?  Would you have paired it with a gold glitter?

Nicole by OPI - Back to Reality...TV

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

Today, I have a lovely dusty purple creme packed with shimmer to share with you from Nicole by OPI.  Back to Reality...TV is from the Kardashian collection (the second one, I believe).  I got it from CVS  over a year ago.  It has a pretty good formula.  It was slightly patchy upon application and you can get it to be opaque in two coats, but I used three for good measure.  Here I used Rejuvacote as base, three coats of Back to Reality...TV and Underground Nails Quickie Dry Top Coat.

Model's Own Bubblegum & Amethyst

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

Today, I have a fun mani I created with Model's Own Bubblegum (a bright pink matte creme) and Amethyst (a textured deep purple base packed with purple glitter).


I used my straight Nail Vinyls to add Amethyst over Bubblegum on my index and middle fingers.   I wanted to leave Bubblegum and Amethyst on their own on the ring and pinky fingers.  I topped the manicure off with Underground Nails Quickie Dry Top Coat.

Artificial Light

I loved wearing this look.  This is one of my favorite color combos and I really loved the contrast of textures.

Here's a look at Bubblegum and Amethyst on their own and without top coat.

What do you guys think of this look?  Do you own any of these polishes?

Nubar - Gem

Hi everyone!!

Today, I have a polish by Nubar called Gem.  It's from their Prism collection which was released in 2010 and it's a taupe packed with holographic microglitter.  The polish is a bit sheer, but it's fully opaque in three coats.  It applies really well, with no issues.  It does dry to a slightly gritty finish though, so you definitely need top coat for a glossy finish.  Here I used Rejuvacote as a base, three coats of Gem and Underground Nails Quickie Dry Top Coat.

Falling: With Style! is a white crelly base with a mixture of blue, green, red and light green glitters.  The base is a bit sheer, so even after three coats there was a slight bit of VNL, but it can be worn on its own.  It applies well and provides great glitter coverage.  Here I used three coats with no top coat.

Cookie Shake

Cookie Shake has black and white glitters and microglitters in a clear base.  I decided to layer it over Revlon Garden.  It applies well and gives good coverage with each coat.  Here I layered two coats.

I just love the beautiful shimmer in this polish.  It's gorgeous!!

I wanted an accent when wearing Jade, so I used my silver and pink striper and created a tribal-esque design on my ring finger.  I topped the mani off with Underground Nails Quickie Dry Top Coat.
