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…

20140812_152136Birefringence is the optical property of a material having a refractive index that depends on the polarization and propagation direction of light…. and that’s exactly what happens when you wear this nail polish. Birefringence shifts through an array of incredible blues, purples, reds, oranges, yellows, and even subtle greens. I was excited when I ordered this polish, I was super excited when it arrived in the mail…and I was nearly in tears when I wore it… you have no idea I was like a kid hopped up on sugar.

This nail polish is part of ILNP’s “Ultra Chrome” class of chromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a imagebase color, which makes it a time saver with maximum lookage (YES, I realize that its not a word…. but you know exactly what I mean…)

The consistency and quality of the polish is beyond  amazing, it spreads like butter on my nails, which shocked me because I thought that the polish would be a little difficult to apply considering it’s a chrome. I was also concerned about the nail polish showing imperfections in the nail (which I sometimes have to deal with  using chromes and metallic) I didn’t have to worry about that either. And don’t worry if you think color would be like it is in the picture of the bottle, but the intensity of the color flip is closer to the picture of the polish on nails. Under most lights it will be a purple/blue but at certain angles and under certain lights you start to see an orange/red/green shine.

I got TONS of compliments on my nails when I wore this. I was at the casino and one of the slo20140810_231131t hosts stopped me and asked to look at my nails. We talked for about 30 minutes and nails and nail polish, I needed up giving her the name of the polish and the website so she can see the polish and the others in the collections… I’m sure she’s not a big fan just like I am. It took me a  long time to buy this nail polish due to the price (you how I feel about being something over $10) but at $12.50 I think this was more than worth the money.  Not only did this nail polish look great, but it lasts for a long time, (I had it on my nails and toes) and I had no issue with chipping at all (which tends to be the norm for these types of polishes).

As soon as I sat this nail polish on the bed Tsuki wouldn’t stop playing with it I want to say that she was in a playful mood (but she’s always like that ) I think that she might have seen some of the color shifts and thought that it was a toy. She wouldn’t let me take it from her…maybe it’s me but she’s got paranoid eyes in this picture and she literally took a nap with the picture. She’s like me, she knows a good thing when she sees it.  And because we loved this nail polish so much Birefringence get’s a perfect 10 out of 10. If you’re looking to step out of the box without going super crazy this is the perfect nail polish for you… I would recommend this polish to EVERYONE. (I wonder how many sassy boys own this?…. that’s another post for another day!)

Until Next Time…
