Liquid Sky Lacquer - Chocolate Obsession

10:30 AM 0 Comments

     I'm back today with another swatch post from the vault. I actually wore this polish last summer but because my nails were so short at that time I didn't want to share it on the blog. I feel very self-conscious when my nails are super short but I've realized that I need to get over that. My poor nails can't be long all the time, especially with the abuse I put them through between all the polish I wear, the sports I play and all the camping I go on. So here is Chocolate Obsession in all its beautiful holographic glory on my super short nubbin nails. 

Chocolate Brown Linear Holographic nail polish

     Chocolate Obsession is a milk chocolate brown linear holographic polish released by Liquid Sky Lacquer in the winter of 2014. I don't believe it was part of a specific collection but please correct me if I'm wrong on that.

      This polish has a delicious formula that's extremely opaque. I'd consider this a one coat polish but applied two coats for that extra wow factor of the holo glitter.  Shown here is 2 coats plus top coat.

     This is a gorgeous polish, beautiful on my shorter nails but is probably a color best suited for the fall or winter months. Unless you're like me and like to wear off-season colors every once in a while. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

Untried A-Z Challenge Letter L

10:54 AM 0 Comments

     It was just a few days ago when I shared my letter K polish for the Untried A-Z Challenge and here it is, time for my letter L polish. I guess that's what happens when you get behind on blogging! So here is my Untried A-Z Challenge letter L polish, enjoy!

     Since it's summertime and been abnormally hot here lately I chose to go with a bright shade this week. And there's no better way to go bright than with a neon polish. Or in this case a Not Really Neon. Check out Lemonade from the Not Really Neon's Collection released last summer from Polish 'M.

Neon yellow nail polish with a creme finish

     Lemonade is a bright lemon yellow creme polish. Typically yellow is a hard color for me to wear but I actually like this one. It's so fun and bright plus it makes me look like I have a nice tan. Any polish that makes my tan look better gets bonus points from me. 

     Like most neons Lemonade applied a bit streaky on the first coat, thankfully it's a self-leveling polish so the streaks weren't a major issue. This polish builds up nicely on the second coat and I probably could have stopped there if I'd used white undies. I had a few places on my nails that appeared to be patchy so I opted to use 3 coats. Shown here is 3 coats plus a matte top coat. 

     Lemonade dries very quickly and with a matte finish. Just what I would expect from a neon polish. Like I mentioned above I like this polish and would probably wear it on its own in the future. But for this post, I opted to add a little nail art to the mix.

    For this marbled look, I used Creative Shop plate 31 and stamping polishes Straight Up Black and Bami White from Bundle Monster and Slate Stamping Sauce from Sassy Sauce Polish. 

    The completed look is a bit much for me but I do really like how my middle finger turned out. In this case, less is more and I'll have to keep that in mind in the future. And as you can see once again I was inpatient when applying my top coat and smeared my pinky finger terribly. 

     What are your thoughts on yellow polish? Is it a color you can easily wear? If you'd like to join in on the Untried A-Z challenge we will be staring letter M week on June 25th and ending on the 29th. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

Untried A-Z Challenge - Letter K

6:00 AM 0 Comments

     I've been a bad blogger lately and there is no excuse for it. It's been almost a month since my last post which makes me sad. If you remember back to my last post I talked about how my nails are in rough shape which has left me feeling unmotivated to blog and life is getting busy with summer upon us. And I'll admit I just haven't tried to make an effort to squeeze in time for blogging. But that all changes now with my letter K polish for the Untried A-Z Challenge. 

     For my letter K polish, I chose Kissful Thinking from Sinful Colors. This polish was released in 2017 as part of the  S.W.A.K Collection. This was a limited edition collection but Sinful Colors has a history of rereleasing colors in their Holiday collections so it may find it's way back to store shelves next year.  While I believe this is meant to be more of a topper than a regular polish I've opted to show it on its own. 

      Kissful Thinking is a pink tinted jelly polish with small white glitters and a few lip shaped gold glitters. 

     The first coat applied easily with a large amount of the smaller white glitters but showed no sign of the pink tint. As you might be able to see from the bottle this polish is very thin so getting the larger shape glitter was pretty much impossible. I had a hard time even getting one on the brush let alone on the nail. After 2 coats you are able to see some of the pink tint but again I had nothing as far as the larger glitters were concerned.

     It took me 20 minutes of fishing around in the bottle to get the 2 glitters you see on the nail. At that point, I was frustrated and decided to give up on getting any more. 

     To be completely honest I'm not a huge fan of the shaped glitters so the fact that they don't easily come out of the bottle isn't that big of a deal. I actually like how this polish looks without them but won't be wearing it alone again. I can see myself using it in a winter manicure though because it reminds me of falling snow. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
