Today, I have two polishes to show you made by the indie brand Kays! The photo above shows three coats of Kays Twinkle. This polish has a purple-grey base with a subtle blue and purple shimmer! It really sparkles in the sun! I had a hard time capturing the true beauty of this polish!

  I didn't add any top coat because I really liked the finish. It dried with a semi-matte finish. If you prefer a shiny finish, you can add a coat of top coat. The formula was on the thin side, so I recommend doing thin layers. No issues with pooling though. This polish can also be used as a layering polish with one coat.

Then I added one coat of Kays Moon Beams over three coats of Kays Twinkle. The photo above shows no top coat. This polish has a silver shimmery base with pieces of silver holo glitter!  


The photo above shows two coats Kays Moon Beams with no base coat and one coat of top coat. You can really see the silver shimmery base in the photo below! 


These polishes were sent to me for review. Kays is available on Ninja Polish for $11. 

Dandy Nails Bathed in Light

Another lovely Dandy Nails polish for you!!!!!! This time it is an awesome grey/pink duo-chrome polish with micro holo glitter in it!! This is two coats of Dandy Nails Bathed in the Light by itself and one coat of top coat. I would describe the pink as a maroon-ish pink! It is an incredible duo polish! Application was easy. The polish was perfectly pigmented, so I didn't have to layer it over anything, which is nice bonus! In the photo below you can really see how awesome the pink color is. 


Of course I had to do a little nail "art"! I haven't done any in a while! I stamped on a rose (like) nail design with the XXL stamping plate #2 I bought from You Mix Cosmetics. I then added some extra detail with a nail brush, Ulta Silver Rush (in the bottle portion of the rose design/stem area), and Kleancolor Metallic Pink (in the rose at the top of the nail).  I added a dot of white polish in the center of the rose. I then applied another layer of top coat.

What do you think of Dandy Nails Bathed in Light?

If you love grey and glitter, this is THE polish for you! This is two coats of Elemental Styles E=mc^2 with one coat of top coat! Whitney's creations are inspired by her love for Chemistry and polish! Application was spot on and NO digging for glitter, which I love! It reminds me of cookies n cream--if only polish was edible!!

I really wanted to do a nail design over it, but I ruined it making polish the next day =( hahaha...  Have you tried any polishes from Elemental Styles? 

See you in a few days!

Today I have two amazing polishes from Dandy Nails on Etsy! This is two coats of Dandy Nails Parallel Universe with one coat of top coat. My photo doesn't show the duo color as much as I would like, but this is a pretty aqua/lavender duo chrome polish! You can see the hint of lavender on the outer edges of my nails! It went on flawlessly.

The next day I added two coats of Dandy Nails Funhouse with one coat of top coat! The glitter pieces came out with ease, so no fishing...The layering possibilities with Fun House is endless! It has purple/pink and aqua flakies with micro silver glitter in a clear base. The aqua flakes have an holo appearance too! Its awesome! So fun! 


Two days later, I still didn't want to take it off!!! But I did stamp on the rose nail design using Kleancolor white and the XXL stamping plates I got from You Mix Cosmetics! I added one coat of Essie Matte About You!

Two days later, I stamped on this design with Kleancolor Metallic Purple and You Mix Cosmetics XL stamping plate I. I added one coat of Essie Matte About You.

I recently discovered a new Etsy shop, Lacquer Convention! Yvonne's polishes are amazing! I hope to show you swatches several of her polishes over the next week or so! 

First up is two coats of Lacquer Convention Elphaba! This is the perfect black jelly with traces of green and yellow glitter. It has perfect coverage, and the application was flawless. This polish is so dark and beautiful! I wore this the entire Easter weekend! I was going to do a stamping design over it, but I decided against it! The photos show one coat of top coat!

My next post will feature Lacquer Convention Pop Tart, and it is in my top 10 favorite polishes!

My polish friend Laurie from Dressed Up Digits did this nail design, and I instantly fell in love with it. I finally tried it! Mine didn't turn out as well as hers, but I still love it!

I started with two coats of Essence Twins Romeo. I did a diagonal tip with China Glaze Liquid Leather using clear scotch tape. Using my dotting tool, I placed three dots of Essence Twin Romeo, making sure the grey dots fell on the edge of the black diagonal tip. Once that dried, I added three dots with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I finished with one coat of top coat!
