A Glamorous Spring with Miss Sporty

Hi everyone!

As of today a new collection by Miss Sporty is available at selected stores. Three new Candy Shine Glitter Effect polishes have been added to their range. These three glitter bombs have no names but are numbered instead:miss sportyToday I’d like to show you the green one, number 1. This is a clear base packed with green and holographic glitter in a variety of sizes and shapes. There are also some tiny green bar glitters in the mix. The formula is good with a nice glitter payoff. I chose to use a peachy pink polish as my base color. Shown is one coat layered over two coats of A Gallon Of Melon by Catrice. I topped it with one coat of top coat for a glossy and long lasting finish.catrice - a gallon of melon - miss sporty 1 candy shine collcatrice - a gallon of melon - miss sporty candy shineThe Candy Shine Glitter Effect polishes are now available at selected stores (7ml each).

Hi lovelies!

I’m back with two more shades from the Nail Party Collection by El Corazon. el corazon - 423 626 strawberry margarita 423 622 long island1For this mani I used Strawberry Margarita (423/626) and Long Island (423/622), both two easy and super glossy coats.

Revlon: Balinese Bay

Happy Sunday everyone!

I assume we’re all familiar with a textured finish but this is not your ‘regular’ textured polish. The bottle of Balinese Bay by Revlon says ‘pebbled textured’. I really have no idea what that means but I do know that it’s awesome 🙂
This polish was gifted to me by the sweet Nailluminati. Thanks honey!revlon - balanise bay1This is a mix of pink, black, lavender and holo glitters. It’s super dense. It dries to a slightly textured matte finish. Not the regular textured finish though, it’s not extremely gritty or anything. I don’t have anything like this in my stash. This is two coats, no top coat. It looks amazing with top coat, too!
I believe this polish is part of last years Haute Rocks Collection which was limited edition. I don’t know if it’s still available.

Impala: 961

You know the bullet shaped bottles by Red Carpet Manicure? I’m dying to get my hands on the classy red one. That’s so cool!
This polish by Impala reminded me of that. This is number 961, a brownish grey scattered holo. Wow! This was gifted to me by Nailluminati, thanks so much dear!impalaThe base color reminds me op OPI’s My Private Jet. Does anyone have the original holo version of My Private Jet and wants to get rid of it? Probably not. That’s on my wishlist for ages. Anyway, this is three thin coats of 961 plus top coat. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. impala1Here’s a look of how it knocks your socks of in direct sunlight:impala - sl
Enjoy your weekend beauties! And remember, keep those paws painted 😀
