Since nothing has been posted on the NPLC Facebook page, I’m assuming that there is a break for a Christmas holiday, but I shall go on without them and this will unofficially be Week 101. As far as I’m concerned last week’s pick was a show stopper that was perfect for the holidays, and this week I picked another holiday inspired polish…

20141204_224549When I picked this nail polish I kind you not I sang the entire Frozen soundtrack… this is totally an Elsa nail polish, but alias Sinful Colors didn’t see it my way, despite my emails (I’m kidding on that one) and  named it Ice Dreams instead…. which I guess when you think about it suits it as well.

Ice  Dream is   a fine silver glitter polish with larger discs of turquoise glitter in it. Very glitzy, very wintery. One coat is almost entirely opaque,  obviously this glitter would look fantastic with a grey, white or light blue, but for the purpose of this post I simply used it alone… I wanted to get the full effect.

This is currently apart of the Holiday Wishes collection, (Formally of the Glitz and Glittered collection )I said currently as you know Sinful Colors add pr20141204_224506eviously released colors and place them in multiple collections, but I really like these, all Blues and Golds, and all something I would totally wear (hell I already own a few of them)

I tend to get nervous when I’m using glitters because they are so hit and miss they are either clump and hard to apply or in this case, applies smooth and even with little or no problems, the polish dried really fast and the glitter was nice and smooth to the touch; one of my pet peeves with glitter is when it’s bumpy only because it has a tendency to snag on my clothing.

Several days later I changed my mind, and wanted to see what it would look like with a base color and I honestly I’m not use which way I prefer, and it sort of gives you a different look, but since I’m partial to blue this one is a winner.

This week Tsuki graciously allowed me to photograph her with the nail polish while she was preparing to nap… such a generous feline, she doesn’t seem all that thrilled about it…. but who cares…

I loved it’s polish and I love that you can create different looks with a different base polish, or you can wear it alone… and since it’s a winter themed and instantly reminded me of the movie Frozen I can’t help but give this polish a 10 out of 10 !

Sinful Color’s Ice Dream retails for $1.99.

Until Next Time….

Nail Polish Lottery Club–Week 84

Two weeks ago I wore Normani a lovely nude polish from Zoya, and honestly I didn’t want to take it off… as a matter of fact it’s still on my feet. sigh… this was a pretty straight forward removal since it wasn’t glitter… what I didn’t pick off my self (I know bad habit) I used a bit of polish to remove the rest.

Sinful Colors…. I love it! I love that I can get a good polish for a good price (cause you know I’m cheap). Best time of the year is that 99 cents sale that they have at Walgreens every few months…so naturally this beauty got picked up, it wasn’t until a few months later when I was looking at my collection that I felt like I had already had something that was very similar (I generally don’t buy a polish if it’s similar to one that I already own). So I had to take a closer look at the polishes  20140805_162532Sinful Color’s Hottie (center), Different Dimension’s Think of All The Other Fellas I Haven’t Kissed (right) and Super Star (left)  and after swatching I realized that none of them look alike.. probably should have did that in the beginning. (swatches had no base color and were two coats each)

Super Star was apart of the Winter Shimmers collection in 2012. it’s  a super pretty blue jelly with purple and aqua glitter… it’s also notoriously difficult to photo so that you can see all the facets of the nail polish.  As you can see from my swatch above this is totally a nail polish that SinfulColorsuperStaryou can wear alone, maybe three or for coats and your good to go (hopefully you have a good glue base so you don’t have to worry about scrubbing you nails (and possibly drying the nail and your cuticles in the process). But I really wanted to add a bit of depth, so I paired this polish with Zoya’s Neve (which was my week 48 pick) and used Super Star as a glittery topper…. sparkles galore!!

The application of this polish was a breeze, I was a little confused because some people were 20140729_124701saying that that the second coat was a little bit tacky, and at first I assumed that happens when you use the polish as a stand alone (since I didn’t swatch until after I painted my nails) . But I20140729_152103 didn’t have any issues when swatching, so I’m gonna make that up either to old polish or a user error. I really liked this polish, and I loved how it adds a little something special to an already fantastic polish. My only issue with this polish is that the camera can’t grab all the awesomeness. (I did spend quite a bit of time twirling my fingers in the sunlight….)

So I searching for a particular Sinful Colors polish and I came across this little gem, does anyone remember what the old SC bottles look like? I had no idea that the company had been around for so long… take a look at this

Like every model, you have to get them when they are fresh, and in the case of this model. It’s best to photograph her right before she’s settling down in my her bed, for mid-day nap. I really like the way this color looks against her black fur…and think that when the time comes this would look quite striking on her as a color, but alas Tsuki enjoys sparkles that are pink…although she didn’t seem that impressed with the color, I remain so. This polish was fantastic and I’m giving it a 9 out of 10… the only reason it’s not getting a perfect score was because I couldn’t really photograph it properly on my nail (and honestly that’s not the nail polish’s fault.

Until Next Time…

Nothing makes a girl smile like a mini haul…. okay nothing makes me smile like a mini haul… never the less, I got TONS of nail goodies this week and can’t wait to use them….. so many pretties so little time.. I especially can’t wait to use the nail tattoos

I actually started this last week Monday, but stuff got busy, then I got sick, so nearly two weeks later it’s getting finished about published!!

So this nail polish was gifted to be my Robin, and I was so excited about them… I total disregarded the number and used it instead….. it was an untried so it totally counts.

There is no nail polish more coveted than the illusive holo, and boy of boy did this weeks pick live up to it’s title. First off let me tell you that the website describes this as an “ultra holo” Most of these are seriously Color Club holo-y, which is major. My camera really had trouble focusing, but I think you get the gist. Wearing this nail polish made me want to go watch “Old School”

I was gifted with ultra mini’s which retail around $3.75 and it’s the perfect size to try out colors  to see how you like them before you commit to the full size

20130716_151407.

The polish is a baby blue liner holographic nail polish that I think would look fantastic with every skin tone.

The application of this holographic polish was probably the best I have ever come across… It went on smooth, without any patchy/balding pull that some holo’s have.  One coat would have been sufficient, but two just made it that more stunning.  I should be honest I did use an undie (I want to save as much of this lovely polish as possible). Could you imagine if I used this on my toes? Holy cow I might have blinded my cat!

If you are a fan of holographic polishes – this is definitely one to add to your collection if you can.  It is really amazing to look at – photos don’t do it justice (and as hard as I tried I couldn’t get that rainbow effect)20130716_151346

I got a LOT of comments on this polish even my brother, who notices nothing that’s not anime said something about my polish. As far as a rating, everything about this polish was amazing and this brand defiantly has a new fan in me… this one gets a 10/10. I can’t wait to buy more!!

 

Until Next time!!ilnp-heart

I’m having a lot of unexpected medical related issues which is why last week and this weeks posts are super late.  And  honestly I didn’t feel like repainting my nails this week so this is what I’m gonna call NPLClub flash back, I originally  picked this polish during week 18  and the original post can be seen here.

But to refresh your memory the color on my fingers and toes is Sally Hansen’s Insta- Dry in Brisk Blue20130725_221505

Not  much has changed since the last time I used this polish, this is a one coat and super quick dry polish and you’re good to go. Didn’t have an issues the second time around so it still holds it’s 10/10 score.  This polish is perfect for fingers and toes and a lovely shade for the summer. Is it possible for a polish to look better the second time around… YEP!!

Hopefully next week will be better, and I can get back into the groove of things…

 

Until next time!
