Mani Monday – Let’s Talk!

Hey guys! Here comes another Mani Monday! Even though the color is not a “holiday” color – Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate-, it is one pretty color.

This is Let’s Talk by Sinful Colors. It is a nice purple/blue color, the only color that I know that comes to mind that is similar to this is Purple Potion by Sally Hansen. Although the Purple Potion seems to have pink undertones.

For this manicure, I used 2 coats of the nail polish. This color is not opaque at all so you will need more than one coat. I was going through my nail polish collection to find Purple Potion and as I did that, I found my Sinful Colors topcoat. I used the topcoat, and I have to say that my nails are holding up better, I think this topcoat works better than the Wet n Wild topcoat – although it is not as shiny.

What are you doing this week? Are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Black Friday? What nail polish are you wearing right now?

Mani Monday – The Perfect Green

So if you know me, or have been following this blog, you know that I have been on the hunt to find the perfect green nail polish, and I think that I just found it. I scored when buying this nail polish. I was scrolling through Amazon when I found this deep green polish, it’s Off Tropic by Essie nail polish, I knew that I was going to get it, but then I procrastinated.

That same weekend, I went to Marshall’s and while browsing I found the nail polish, for only $3.99, how awesome was that?! Don’t sleep on stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, you never know what you might find.

While you’re using this nail polish, you might think that this color is opaque with one coat, but I found that if you use one coat, your mani will end up steaky. For this nail polish, it’s best to use 2 coats. After I let the nails dry, I used my Orly top coat and was on my way.

This nail polish is amazing, it’s the perfect green for the fall and you can add a red nail as an accent for the upcoming holiday season. My only gripe with this nail polish (I think, could also be the topcoat I am using) is that it started to chip after a couple of days. My manicure did not last a week.

QUESTION TIME: WHAT TYPE OF TOP COAT DO YOU USE?

 

Mani Monday – Obsessed

Hello! For this week, I decided to use a “fall color” and went with Obsessed by Formula X. From my understanding, this was once sold at Sephora but not anymore, you can still find it on Amazon if you really like it.

I used two coats and my wet n wild top coat.

Nails of the Week – I’m Alive!

​No, I’m not dead, sorry for the lack of updates these past few weeks. It’s been a combination of writer’s block and a bad cold that has been keeping me away from the computer/blog. I’ll try to be more consistent with my content for the rest of the month.

Today I come with an amazing combination of colors. One of my favorite colors is Lie-Lac by Sinful Colors and I decided to jazz it up a bit and add a cool shimmer/holo/dual chrome topper. I used You Just Wait.

Here’s a look at the nail polish in motion, it’s so beautiful.

 

After the topper, the lilac colored nail polish turned into a cool blue color. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it that much since I love the lilac color, but I did love it!

These two bad boys are available at Walgreens (they have one of the biggest displays ever!), find them at your local store and get your mani on!

How have you been? What colors are you wearing? Are you wearing fall colors, or are you still hanging on to summer?

Mani Monday – On A Stellar Trip

For this week, I decided to mix and play around with different nail colors. I put on two coats of On A Trip by Wet n Wild and over that, I put a layer of Stellar Explosion by Sally Hansen. Since the glitter polish also serves as a top coat, this was all I needed for these gorgeous nails.


I love this color combination and this beautiful manicure is going to become one of my go-to’s.

What’s your favorite color/nail polish combinations?
