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…

20141220_132651

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….

20141111_200552Apparently it’s been several weeks since I participated in NPLC, Lots of things are happening, and with the cold weather my hands have been super dry, and after I removed polish I got 3 breaks one after the other (two happened on the same day) so this is the last time you’ll see me with longer nails for a while… I’m working with my winter nubs for the moment. Now let’s get to this week’s pick. Week 100… wow it’s a milestone and I think this weeks pick is the perfect celebratory polish.

Twilight Twinkles is a  clear base with gold shards, squares and holographic-ish strips. Thick the perfect gold thick and chunky glitter. It’s one of eight colors in the Holi-Dazzled Collection (Two are new; Galax-Sea and Twilight Twinkles, while the reaming polish come from other collections… seriously? )

Usually with solid color glitters I tend to pair them with black or white nail polish for that full effect of the polish can be seen, and honestly I love the effect that the black has with this polish, not to say that it can’t look good with any other polish (I have also found that this topper looks great with all of the polishes in this collection). I  When I first saw this polish thought of New Years Eve, then I remembered the name and thought, I guess it’s great for the entire holiday season (and beyond) and it sort of reminds me of lights on a Christmas tree… which I guess ties into the name.20141111_200608

I paired this polish with Wet N Wild Black Crème as the base nail polish, the topper is packed with glitter and I was preparing myself for major clumping  but when I applied the polish, it didn’t happen, the application was really smoothe and after two coats it dried quickly and I didn’t have any issues with all of the glitter not.  The only issue I has was that I felt like there were some part of my nail that had more glitter than others., but other than that there was no issues at all.

Not necessarily a work friendly polish, but this one is defiantly one you can pull out for fun times or when you need a little sparkle. This is defiantly one of those polishes that I would categorize as a show stopper, you know the kind of polish that everyone notices and you just have to look at it when it’s on your nails. This is generally around the time where I tell you to if there is a dupe, but honestly a great versatile look for under 2 bucks… you can’t beat that..

This week Tsuki was more into the blanket than the nail polish, and to prove it she sat on the polish for most of the time she was lounging, does that mean she approved of this weeks pick? Who knows but I loved it, I love the versatility, the big gold chunks … EVERYTHING and that’s why this polish get’s a perfect score. A 10 out of 10!

Last week I wore Essie’s Marshmallow, and although I’m still super disappointed that it was my perfect polish it was still a breeze to come off.. my feelings are still hurt about this polish …so I don’t want to talk about it.

I know that these post normally come out on Tuesday’s but real life happened and post procedure pain kept me drugged up and in bed and doing my nails was the very last thing on my mind…. but I

1Bikini Bottoms, an awesome in-your-face bright magenta pink holo with a bit of blue shimmer. I’m a pink girl at heart, so of course I had to show you this beauty! I love love Bikini Bottoms. The holo in this is much better than what showed up for the photos. Did I mention I love it?I loved this, purchased it, forgot about it for months and months then found it and fell in love again. This polish looks great EVERYWHERE, in the shade, in the sunlight, in the shower…everywhere. I always gets load and loads of complements when I wear this brand of polish (and always direct them where to go when they asked where I got it)

20141003_175031

I have been very vocal about this brand because everything is so easy, the ordering, the the quick shipments, to the application and the removal I have never had a problem with this brand. Two good even coats and your favorite top coat and your done and ready to sparkle. This particular polish looks much deeper in low light, but it’s a stunner nonetheless.

This polish is an absolute gem and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the color what’s so ever. Bikini Bottoms get’s top scores with 10 out of 10! If you don’t own this polish, head on over the the website and get it you won’t be sorry. I will especially treasure this as ILNP is going through major redesigns as well as bottle design (and I’m excited about the new direction that Barbara is taking her company, so now really is the time if you want it in the “classic bottle with the old logo.

Tsuki, as  documented on this blog LOVES pink and she literally grabbed it and refused to let it go, she held on to it like it was her little baby, and I totally understand I nearly had a heart attack when the bottle fell on the floor, so I had to snap her as is… she wouldn’t even look me in the eye (she knew she was doing wrong)… if you look closely you can see her fuzzy pink ball that she always has with her.

Bikini Bottoms retails for $10.00.

Last week I wore this great Mauve shade from Sinful Colors,  I loved it… I really liked it, and to be honest I hate taking it off. Since this was a crème polish I had no real issues removing this polish. I made sure to wear a really good topcoat and the manicure lasted all week, with very little tip wear.  I will defiantly be wearing this polish soon!nail border

This polish was a spurge by that I found at Marshalls, it was actually a mini that was in a package of four which included; Pixie Powder, Teal Unreal and Angel Rain (Which is four of the six colors in the 2013 Surreal Collection.

“Your daydream leads you down a path to an extraordinary pink waterfall. Soak it in.” I have no idea what the hell Orly was talking it about because it does not make a bit of sense to me….who comes up with this stuff?  This is your classic bubble gum pink, so without a doubt you’re gonna feel ultra girly wearing it. Apparently its was a collection that debuted last fall, which was a but showing to me, because I don’t look at these colors and thing of fall at all… if anything I would think this was a spring collection; but pink works anytime of the year in my opinion. This particular polish is very pigmented which is something that I’m not used to when it comes to these shades of pinks, thus it makes the formula a little bit thicker than what I would prefer, the application of the first coat was a bit touchy, but it all evened out by the time that the second coat was applied.

When you have a darker skin tone like I do pinks tend to be a little bit tricky (and I tendmini to lean towards darker pinks), but since this on had a blue tone (it almost looked a bit lavender in some lights) this one worked well for me. I loved this color so much I was singing Aqua’s Barbie Girl when I was applying it. If I was presented with the opportunity to purchase a large bottle I don’t think that I would simply based on the appearance, but now I totally think that I will (After I applied my manicure I dropped the bottle and all f the polish spilled out, the scream that escaped my mother was animalistic….)  So as soon as I can I’m going on to get another bottle. Another thing that I noticed on this polish was the nice sheen that it had after I applied it, the only reason I added a topcoat was because I used some born pretty water decals and I wanted to seal them.

20140904_142608I really do like wearing a nail polish that changes my first impression of it. Although it took a long time for me to pick and wear something like this, but I think it was well worth the wait. Despite the fact that the formula was thick I was still about to get the desired look in two coats, although great for someone like me who want to “try out” a color, these tiny bottles are a bit cumbersome and I guess that’s why I dropped the little sucker.. Although this polis wasn’t perfect. I still really liked it and thought that it looked really good on my nails (I got a lot of compliments on my nails…which always raisers the score here… so this eye catching number gets a 8 out of 10!

As regular readers know that “Princess” Tsuki doesn’t take pictures with mini bottles of polish, she thinks it’s beneath her. But she’s a fan a bright colors and allowed me to photograph her while she was in a playful mode…her color is somewhat similar to Pink Waterfall.Pink Waterfall retails for $8.50 and the Decals were $.99 at Born Pretty.
