Last week I wore L. A. Color’s Candy Sprinkles, I took it off several hours after applying it. I didn’t even realize I was taking it off until I had taken off nail polish from two nails…. with my teeth, was pretty effective, didn’t even require nail polish remover

20141108_190936After the shit show that was last weeks pick, I needed something that looked good on my nails good; and I certainly lucked out this. Week. This week’s pick was Sinful Color’s Prism

China Glaze (I keep wanting to write Sinful Colors, that tells me that I have way to many SC polishes) Prism, several months ago I was trolling the Sally’s clearance page and saw them, my very first thought was, “this looks like someone took crystals, smashed them until they were in powder form then added them to nail polish. It combines super-fine glitter “dust” along with larger glitter flecks.  It has a nice, purple-bluish tint when dry and shines like crazy. The company says, “Inspired by the colors formed by the refraction of light through a prism, Prismatic by China Glaze® combines glitter and holographic particles to create the ultimate eye-catching, 3-dimensional manicure”… whatever I still think 20141108_191003it looks like crushed up gems.

Because you have all of these glitters you would think that the polish would apply like a regular glitter polish, but that is simply not the case, I was surprised by how opaque even the first coat was.. and how smooth the polish was, two coats and I was able to get a nice even opaque look that was shiny and showed all the facets of the “prisim”

  • recommended to leave an interval of at least 2 minutes between coats to avoid any dragging
  • finished surface slightly rough, but easily smoothed over with at least one layer of top coat
  • formula flows quite easily without the usual suspension format of most glitter

One thing thing that I noticed right away was that due to the multifaceted nature of this nail polish, it looks quote different when you photograph it with and without flash, so sometimes it looks like a pink and other times it’s that blue-ish purple shade….I like the duality of the polish

This particular polish met and went beyond my expectations, because of the 10 out of 10!  Finally some redemption! Prism retails for $5.0020141108_191034

Tsuki seemed to like to too!

Until Next Time…

So I originally got this nail polish a few months back in what was part of the goodies that come in my October ipsy bag. Anytime I get nail polish in my bags it’s like a gift from the gods… and the month I got N20131203_154051eve…. I honestly put it bag in the bag and stuck it in a drawer…. I didn’t want anyone to use it (or God forbid take it) I tend to be very territorial about certain nail polishes. Zoya’s Neve is a full coverage sapphire blue metallic for the Satin Collection (2013) originally designed for Zang Toi Autumn/Winter 2013 collection and it is lovely. It has  micro shimmers in it which are not chunky and they don’t give a very glittery look to the nails.  I can see purple, blues and even some dark fuchsia colored shimmers. The finish is very metallic and gives a  high shine. This is one of the nail polishes that if you’re stingy with it, it will be stingy with you meaning… if you put on at least two good coats, you’re gonna miss all the hidden shimmer this polish has to offer… (After realizing how dull two coats looked three was the trick). This nail polish does apply smoothly and evenly but you can see a lot of brush strokes when applying this nail polish hence you need a very steady hand to apply this product . This nail polish also tends to stain the nails (which is true for most blue polishes), so I recommend using a base coat to protect your nails before applying this polish.

 

ddshineI don’t think that I’ve ever had a negative experience with Zoya polishes, their formula; no matter the type of polish is consistent and always looks good… three days after I initially applied this polish I am still completely in love with it. Although Zoya calls this polish blue, it really it more of a blurple . And if you have been reading my past nail polish post, you know I simply can’t leave well enough alone. So I added one of my favorite holiday themed polishes from Different Dimension’s Santa Baby Collection “Think of all the fellas I haven’t kissed.” as an accent nail. Just the right amount of “bling” to make me happy.

I don’t have a lot of complaints with this polish, so I guess I’ll keep this one short and sweet. On a scale of one to ten Neve would get a solid 8.5. I will defiantly be wearing this one again

 

 

 

 

 

Until next time… keep those cuticle moisturized !
