Nicole by OPI - Selena

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I have a lovely pink to share with you today from Nicole by OPI.


Selena is from the Selena Gomez line and it's a pretty medium pink.  The formula is pretty good, but it's a bit on the streaky side.  I was able to achieve full opacity with three coats.

I paired Selena with Loreal Silver Sparkle.  It's a sheer silver and holographic shimmer.  I used three coats and got decent coverage.

For the stamping, I used an image from the BP-L006 plate.

Selena is a really pretty shade.  I like it a lot!  Silver Sparkle is pretty too, I just wish it was more opaque.

What do you guys think of these two polishes?

Beach Blu is a lovely creme that has a great formula.  It required two coats for full opacity and applied well.  I decided to do an accent nail with white and sponged Beach Blu over it.  I then stamped an image over it from the DP02 plate.

Delush Polish - I'm Jaws Sayin

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

I have a purple and gold mani to share with you today!


For this mani, I used two polishes from Delush Polish.  I'm Jaws Sayin is a dark purple with gold flecks that has a really good formula.  It's pretty thick and very opaque, so it provides full coverage in just one coat.  It also dries to a dull finish. Here I used two coats.

Double Glam-my (on my pinky) is a sheer gold holo.  It applies really well and is opaque in three coats.

I used an image from Delush Polish's Dazed & Enthused DP02 plate on my ring finger.

I'm absolutely in love with these two polishes and the stamping plate is a fun one too.  I'm looking forward to trying the other images.

Wet n Wild - Caught Red Handed

Hi everyone!!

I have a mani to share with you using Wet n Wild Megalast Caught Red Handed as a base.


Caught Red Handed is a red creme with a fairly good formula.  It's more on the thin side and runs if you have too much on the brush, so it just requires a bit of care when applying.  I used three coats on my middle finger and two on the others.  You can still see a bit of VNL.

On my pinky, I added a glitter from NYC called Big City Dazzle.  It has pink, blue and gold microglitters.  On my index and ring fingers, I used nail stencils from Kiss Cosmetics and added Sinful Colors Forget Now, a pink shimmer.

 Here's a look at the stencils from Kiss.


They were so easy to work with.  I love that it has a frame around the design; it required less clean up.

What do you guys think of this combo?  Have you tried these stencils by Kiss Cosmetics?

The Polish Well - Pompadour

Hi everyone!!

I have a pretty light pink polish to share with you today from The Polish Well.

Pompadour has a subtle shimmer and is a bit on the sheer side.  I've had this for a long time, so I had to thin it out.  I'm not sure if that affected the formula, but I had to use four coats to even it out.  I used a cream polish from Prettily Inspired called Can't Believe It's Not Butter on my accent nail.  It has pink shimmer in it.  I stamped an image from the Cici & Sisi 04 plate over it.

I love soft pinks like this!!  And a hint of shimmer doesn't hurt either.  What do you guys think of it?
