Enchanted Polish ~ Rare Magic


Enchanted Polish ~ Rare Magic
Described as: purple with gold/copper (in some angles silver/blue) color shift

Today's polish is really spectacular - I don't think I have anything that's just remotely like it in my collection.

The formula is really good and I used two easy and fast drying coats for full opacity.

I decorated my nails with feathery nail stickers in matching colours. Then I topped it all with topcoat and my manicure was done.

Here's the final result - photographed with flash.

The same thing without flash.

This is "Rare Magic" alone; two coats and no topcoat. The photo is taken with flash.

Masura ~ Clary Sage


Masura ~ Clary Sage
Rich lilac scattered holographic nail polish with delicate pink shimmer

The formula of this beauty is really good. I used two super easy coats for full opacity. The drying time is good too.

I made dots on my nails, in a design that I've really come to like. I used three stamping polishes from Colors by Llarowe for that: The Heart Bleeds, Turq'd and Sparkling Diamonds.

Here's the final result, including a layer of topcoat. This first photo is taken with flash to show off the holographic goodness of all four polishes.

This is the same thing photographed under a lamp. I am a big fan of this design.

And here's "Clary Sage" alone; two coats and no topcoat yet. This is photographed with flash. It also makes the pink shimmer show itself.

China Glaze ~ 50 Shimmering Years
Rose gold microglitter with a dash of holographic microglitter

This is the last polish in the Sesame Street 2019 Holiday Collection, which is a collection of 12 polishes. There are links to each polish by the end of each of the posts.

Today I'm showing you "50 Shimmering Years", a gorgeous rose gold glitter polish.

I used two easy coats for my nails today and the drying time is really good. I topped it with topcoat and then I added purple foil to it.

This is the end result, including an additional layer of topcoat to seal it all up.

China Glaze ~ FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!


China Glaze ~ FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!
Colour shifting shimmer that shifts between purple and gold and marsala

This is the second last polish in the Sesame Street 2019 Holiday Collection. It's a collection of 12 polishes. There will be links to each polish by the end of each of the posts.

Today I'm showing you "FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!", a really special shimmer. It's special because it's showing so many colours and that makes it super hard to describe.

" FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!" can be used as an effect polish but it also works on its own. I used two easy coats for full coverage and the drying time is really good.

I added some loose glitter by the base of each nail.

I topcoated it all and here's the final result:

China Glaze ~ FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!

Oh yes, glitter on shimmer, I love it!

And here's " FA-LA-AH-AH-AHHH!"; two coats on its own and no topcoat yet. I probably would have added a third coat if I should have worn this on its own.

And here are the things I used to decorate my nails today. The glitter is from evilbay.


I really like this shimmer, I think it's super pretty.
