Sinful Colors Fantasy Swatch

Hello again everyone! I have another pretty polish to share with you today!

Sinful Colors has been coming out with quite a few new polishes lately and I want on a bit of a haul when Walgreen's put them on sale for 99 cents! I always wait for these sales to get this brand because they seem to happen often.

The polish I have today is called Fantasy. It is a glitter polish consisting of fine silver glitter and small hexes of multiple colors. It has a party-ish feel to it and it is super sparkly!

In this first picture, the index (one coat) and middle (two coats) fingers are Fantasy by itself. The ring (one coat) and pinky (two coats) fingers are on top of Essie I Am Strong. This picture was taken with no top coat.

This next picture was taken after two coats of Seche Vite top coat.

I really love this polish! I am sure it would look gorgeous of many different colors! I will definitely be keeping this in my collection!

Thank you very much for reading! I hope to see you again soon!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! I know a lot of us like to do something special on our nails for holidays. I am one of those people! I tried my hand at stamping again and was surprised when I got it to work (mostly) right!

The white I used is Pure Ice Super Star, the red is Orchid Cougarville, and the black is Pure Ice Black Rage.

On the index and ring fingers, I used Vivid Lacquer 001. If you would like to check out more of her products, you can visit her store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/vividlacquer This is by far my favorite stamping plate! 

On the middle finger and thumb, I used a Bundle Monster plate, BM 02.

On the pinky finger, I used another Bundle Monster plate, BM 03. You can find Bundle Monster stamping plates on Amazon.com.

I really like the way this mani turned out! I hope you like it, too!

Thank you for reading and Happy Valentine's day!

Orly Androgynie Swatch

Today I thought I would try out a higher cost brand of polish I am sure we are all familiar with, Orly.

I picked up this bottle because I love polishes that are chock full of glitter! This polish does seem to have an issue with the glitter settling, so you have to shake it up before use if you want any glitter.

This polish consists of a black creme base with small silver and gold glitter and medium hexes of muted green, blue, silver, and peach.

Take a look at the bottle shot. Most of the glitter has sunk to the bottom while some pieces are floating around the middle. The top is almost void of glitter.

Even with this settling problem, I was determined to try it out! Here is a shot of one coat, which did not give full coverage, but that is to be expected with polishes like this!

 At this point, I knew that it would look pretty with another coat! Here is two coats.

After two coats, the polish had some texture to it due to the glitters. This was easily fixed with a generous helping of Seche Vite!

Last, but not least, here is the end result after two coats of Seche Vite!

I think this polish is very pretty and I would definitely recommend it!

Thank you very much for reading and I hope to see you again!

New Star Candy Polishes!

I have recently released two new polishes and I couldn't wait to share!

First, we have Milky Way. This is a deep blue jelly polish with fine silver and blue glitter, gold hexes, and silver holographic shreds. Its inspiration, of course, is the beautiful galaxy we call home!

Let's start off with the label photo!

My wonderful friend Krista designed the labels! I can't thank her enough!

Next, let's see how the polish looks in the bottle!

Last, and most important, let's see how it looks swatched!

I really thought that it turned out well, especially over white or black undies!

Here is a clearer shot over black undies.

Next, let's move on to the second new polish, Smaug! This polish was inspired by the dragon from one of my favorite books, The Hobbit. He is the red dragon that takes over the Dwarven mountain and boy does he love gold! He lays around on it so much that his belly is encrusted with gold!

So, for this polish, it is a red jelly base with small red squares, gold dots and gold shimmer to represent the treasure, and large silver hexes to represent the Arkenstone.

Here is the label shot!

Now, the polish in the bottle shot!

And, of course, the swatches!

Both of these polishes are available in full 15ml size and a 5ml mini size! If you would like to take a look at my shop, please visit Star Candy Polish. You can also look at my shop through my Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/StarCandyNails
