Enchanted Polish – Magical Mystery Tour

I’m mostly going to let this one speak for itself. It’s… magical. The formula, as always, was great. Two coats was enough for me. The only problem with wearing this beauty is that your nails become so distracting. At terrible, inopportune times. Keep your eyes on the road, people. Just sayin’.

Let’s start with the picture spam, already.

For these next four, all I did was rotate myself in relation to the sun. It really lets you see how the polish changes!

And finally, one indoor shot to show off the seldom seen side of MMT!

How pretty is that?! So many colours in one bottle! Amazing. Are you lucky enough to own MMT? I grabbed it, and never understood what the hype was until I wore it. Definitely better on the nail than in the bottle! Happy polishing!

 

 

OPI – My Current Crush

My Current Crush is a liquid sand polish that was released as part of a duo called The TXTure Effect, and came with an OPI Natural Nail Base Coat. A lovely lady I know was shopping and came across the set on clearance and offered to pick it up for me! I couldn’t pass them up – it was $9.99 for a polish and basecoat! Great price, and I really like liquid sand polishes… they are great polishes when you are in a rush, because they dry quickly. I also love that you can change them up by adding a topcoat (I use 2 coats), to make them smooth and glossy! It’s like two polishes in one.

So, I used two coats of My Current Crush… then added 2 coats of topcoat to show you how it looks shiny. Enjoy!

Do you like it better with or without topcoat? The great thing about liquid sands is that they wear so well – they last a long time without chips or tipwear! Perfect.

Saturday Savings – Easy Easter Mani

Today I have an easy ‘Easter’ mani for those of us who are not artistically gifted. I have seen so many beautifully painted, stamped, striped and dotted Easter manis floating around the nail polish world… however, I am am not talented in the nail art arena. So, I’ve created this simple Easter-inspired mani.

I grabbed two of my Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear polishes – Blue Me Away, and Mellow Yellow. Blue Me Away has a great formula, and only needed 2 coats for coverage. Mellow Yellow was decent – I’m sure we all know how finicky yelllow polishes (especially cremes and pastels) can be. I used three coats and it looks pretty good.

ImageIf you do have a smidge of nail art talent, you could go ahead and add dots, stripes or even an Easter egg design on one or all of the nails! :) Happy Easter, and I hope the bunny is good to you!

OPI – Stars in My Eyes

Quickie post today!

I’ve had this polish for a while, but haven’t really used it much. The main reason being that it’s so sheer, it takes 4-5 coats to build up to full opacity.
I haven’t gotten rid of it though, because it really is super pretty. It’s a pearly iridescent polish, with lots of shimmer and sparkle that catch the light. The formula itself is nice, not too thin or thick… which means building up to 4-5 coats isn’t too troublesome.

Image

Image

And I have tried layering it over other polishes, but I just haven’t found any combo I liked yet! Happy Easter to everyone celebrating! :)

Eat Sleep Polish – À La Menthe

À La Menthe is another beauty from Eat Sleep Polish that started out as a custom, but was too pretty to keep away from all the rest of our grabby hands.

True to it’s name, it’s a lovely minty colour with a beautiful gold flash. On me, it leans just ever-so-slightly on the bluer side of mint, which I really dig.

This is 3 coats and no topcoat.

Oooh, aaah. See the pretty gold?

Pick up À La Menthe at Eat Sleep Polish (but wait until April 19 when her Fizzle & Pop collection releases!!!)

Enchanted Polish – Beautiful Rule Breaking Moth

If you’re an Enchanted Polish fan (read: stalker), you know we’re in the midst of 2 different suppliers restocking different polishes! I haven’t actually grabbed anything yet, but I thought it was a good time to bust out one of my older EP colours and give it some love.

Beautiful Rule Breaking Moth is a pretty grey polish, packed with gold microflakies, and it also has a blue flash (which was super hard to capture). I used 2 coats and a topcoat… and the formula is great as usual.

See the blue flash?

Check out this macro of the microflakies… go ahead and click on it to get the full-size picture! So pretty!

Did you grab any EP’s in this week’s restocks? Are you still chasing them…? I might grab 1 or 2 if the right colours pop up!

Saturday Savings – Nicole by OPI – Mi Fantasia

Ok, I know Saturday Savings has been MIA for a while… but it’s back!

Let’s kick it off with a beauty of a polish… Mi Fantasia from the Selena Gomez collection for Nicole by OPI.

Mi Fantasia is a glitter topcoat with lots of blue glitter and different coloured iridescent bar glitter. It’s a pretty dense glitter topcoat, so you can build up a few coats to near full-coverage… but I opted to wear one coat over an old nude polish I have. The formula is a little thick for my liking. It’s really glittery and beautiful! Check it out.

ImageThe Selena Gomez collection is a bit older, but I’ve still seen it in many drugstores so I’m sure you can still find it! Happy Saturday!
