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!

Sinful Color’s Twilight Twinkles retails for $1.99.

I didn’t wear anything last week, and honestly I’m not sure if I remember what I wore a couple of weeks ago…. so let’s just say that I loved it and moved on….

Folly is glossy, raspberry red creame. When I saw it, I instantly picked it up (Thank goodness for Walgreen’s 99 cent sale), I never walk away from a pink tone…This Polish is part of the Bright to Buff collection, and I have a few of the polishes in the collection: Endless Blue and GoGoGirl, so naturally I wanted to add (FYI: I’m on the lookout for Pistache !). I loved this polish from the moment I put it one…. well until I put that top coat on it…but that’s for later.nail2

The application of Folly was easy,  In order for me  to get full opacity I applied two coats,  with one coat it looks good and I was happy with it, but I had slight VPL on some nails,  but with two coats the color is richer and more beautiful.  Folly is really pretty and bright but it was very hard to catch it and on the pictures it looks little bit brighter. Now the formula is Sinful Colors, some of them are hit or miss, but this particular one was smooth like butter, and it dried really quickly; which is always nice because without fault … every single time I do my nails I have to go to the bathroom 30 seconds after I finish the last nail.

Someone described this color as “squishy” not exactly sure that that means, but the person that complemented me was six…but I will admit that it has a sort of Barbie-esque quality to it that I enjoy. If your Walgreens/Walmart is anything like the ones near me, you aren’t really gonna find every color that you want/need at one store and you might not even find the color at all, so you have to look for dupes, and since it seems horribly unfair for me to suggest one that costs more than the original; but it seems that Sinful Colors has taken care of that for you with All The Rage (which I am pretty sure that I own). So you can get pretty much an identical look with either shade.dupes

 

Tsuki, has seriously been sticking close by me since the whole “post biopsy…oops I hit  a nerve now your in a ton of pain fiasco” happened, so she’s refused to move… so (parts of her ) in most of the pictures… either she loves me a lot or she’s in “Diva Mode” I’m hoping it’s the former. She doesn’t seem to mind, she is her favorite color after all.

This polish is an absolute gem and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the color what’s so ever. So Folly uoi get a  10 out of 10!  Folly retails for $1.99 and (the topper) Amazing Glaze retails for $5.49

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.
