Pink Wenesay!! Glitter Gal Frappe

Hi loves and happy Pink Wednesday!

 It's been a while huh? Today I have another awesome Glitter Gal holo for you guys. I did some really cute stamping too. This color brought out the cutesy side of me :D.
  So for this cute and playful design I started with Two effortless coats of Glitter Gal's Frappe. Yummeh, yummeh soft Pink holo! Anywho back to the cuteness. For the stamping I used some designs from Konad plate M59 and Konad Black and White  Special polish. I really love the playful and edgy look of the layered bow stamps. 

  Here is Frappe on it's own. Lovely, lovely flush of Pink color with a strong linear holographic finish. This has an amazing formula and is fully opaque at Two easy coats. This is like Fairy magic on my nails!

  The prettiest holo eva!

And in crappy light! So cute!
  Well that is it for today's post. It's been a while since I had done a Pink Wednesday! I can finally sit at the cool table again.... Head to Llarowe for Glitter Gal pretties!

Happy Pink Wednesday!

Glitter Gal Blue 3D Holographic (Pic heavy)

I wish I had a gallon of this...

  Yeah.. A gallon... I wont say much and get straight to the swatch because this is just too much awesomeness for my brain to process.
 So this is the most amazing Blue holo I own. It also has the lamest name out of all the Blue holos I own. It goes by Blue Holo 3D. Wahh waaahhh.... However, it makes up for its lame name by having extra bits of awesome sprinkled into it and being a super strong linear holo. The best part about this baby? The excellent formula. It applies evenly and smoothly. it is highly pigmented with holo goodness and it does not drag one bit. For these pics I used only Two coats.

I wore this for about Four days and had minimal tip wear and no chips. I am super happy with the wear because it could have probably gone for longer....


The holo is so strong you can even see it come through in crappy lighting.
This beauty and other Glitter Gal awesomesauce is available from Llarowe. Epic WIN tab + One!

Thanks for stopping by!

Muffin Mondays!! Essence Time for Romance and more Hair Pics!!

Hi and happy Monday!

  I hope everyone had a safe and fun Holiday Weekend. I had an awesome weekend with the family and Mr. LTHP. Today Muffin had some Essence pretties to choose from. These beauties came all the way from The Netherlands thanks to the lovely Deborah from LVCAM. This was one of the sweetest nail mails ever. I was feeling down and stuff and Deborah sent me some Amazing pretties to cheer me up :D. Today's pick reminds me of something that Deborah Lippmann might do....
  This is Time for Romance. The name is so fitting. This is a Mauvey/ Rosey version of Deborah Lippmann's Accross the Universe (Which I am now the proud owner of a dupe of...). This pretty is made up of Pink Hex glitters and irregular shaped and sized smaller Pink and Pink iridescent bits suspended in a Mauve/Pinky Jelly. I think this would do better layered but here I have Three coats of Time for Romance on it's own. It's a very romantic and pretty glitter. ♥!!!

 Not the best pic.. My lights were jacked up!

Anywho!! Here is me in the Sun with mah cray cray hair!! But how cute is this dress? It came from Delia's and I got such a good deal on it! It's so comfy and cute!!

Here is a close up of my hair! I loove it so much!! I will make it my mission to make sure it remains vibrant and awesome!!
  Well that is it for this Monday. Have a lovely day ladies!!

Zoya Feel Collection Swatches and my New Hair!

Happy Sunday loves!

  Today I have Zoya's Feel Collection swatches. This was a little surprise collection Zoya came out with made up of Six Winter, full coverage, neutral cremes. The term could not be more accurate. These colors are cozy and I want a full wardrobe matching them! I am seriously in love with these colors especially in the midst of the sea of glitter I've been drowning in lol!
Kendal. This pretty is a soft Grey/ Taupe/ Lavender. Yeah... All that... It's an amazing color!  It's really pleasing to look at and so flattering. I sense a new "go to" color. This is just so ... Mmmmmmmmm.... That is all.

Carey. Soft Grey creme. This is the only true Grey in the collection. This is another win for me. You can't really go wrong with a nice, classic Grey.

Kennedy. This one is a soft beige creme with Pinky undertones. Not my favorite in the collection but still a nice, clean color.

Kristen. A soft Blue creme with a hint of dustiness. Awesome color, very bridal. I am a sucker for anything Blue so this color really made my day.

Megan. A soft Grey. This reminds me a little bit of last Spring's Dove but slightly more Blue and a little "cleaner". A classic Zoya Grey. I really love this color so much. 

Avery. This looks like Zoya foundation :D. It's a really cute beige with some slight Yellow tones. I actually REALLY like this. It's clean and fresh. Girls with dark skin tones will look amazing in this color!

  Overall, I am really happy with this collection. These colors make me go "Ahhhhhhhh". The colors are clean and refreshing. They are also very versatile. I mean, these babies can be worn all year long! Formula wise they are all consistently thick. They are all two coaters but you have to wait between coats. It's not difficult to work with, just a slight bit thick. They do deliver on the "full coverage" promise and for neutral, nude-ish tones they apply really well. My faves have to be Megan, Kendall, Avery and Kristen.

Also... Here is a crappy pic of my awesome new hair!! Sunlight pics soon!! But it is bright, fuchsia and awesome!
Thoughts on this collection?

Nicole by O.P.I Kardashian Collection Swatches: Part 2

Happy Caturday!!

  Yesterday I showed you guys the creme portion of the Kardashian Kolors Collection. Today I have the glitters. The oh-so-awesome glitters... This is where this collection comes to life!
Disco Dolls. This is so freaking festive!!! This pretty is made up warm Gold micro glitter and larger glitter bits in Red, Orange, Green, Blue and Silver. It's a really fun and funky glitter. Very unique and easy to work with. For these pics I used Three coats.

Kendall on the Katwalk.... ♥! ♥! ♥! ♥! ♥!  Yeah.... That's about it.. This baby is small Blue, Purple, Green and micro Silver Glitter suspended in a barely-there Blue jelly base.... Now the formula on this was a bit thick but not terrible. This one is really AMAZING! The mix of colors is so perfect. Three coats.

Follow me on Glitter. This is Disco Dolls Graphite toned sister. It's the same concept just in a different shade. Pretty amazeballs as well. This one is super edgy and the colored bits really make this really cool.

Wear something Spar-Kylie. This one is a sweet Rosey jelly base packed full of small Pink, and Silver glitters. This is not the most unique color but it is very pretty, sparkly and werable. Great Holiday color and I am biiiig into glitters like this one. Three coats.

Listen to your Momager. Fierce Blue metallic shimmer. This is another one of those classic shades. This color is very eye catching and surprisingly bright. I am dupeless for this color even though some similar shades had come out not too long ago (Swimsuit... Nailed it). Great formula but triple up on the base coat. Two coats.

Rainbow in the S-Kylie. A pretty awesome mix of Large and smaller hexes in Rainbow colors. Not a dupe of DL Happy Birthday but it will please those of you not anting to spend the money. I really love this one because it is easy to apply and work with. Supa fun!!

  So you guys know how much I love this collection right? I mean it has something for everyone! Funky glitters, classic cremes and even a boring Taupe loool (j/k). All colors have a great and easy to work with formula. I think Nicole by O.P.I has been hitting it out of the park lately... They have seriously done some of the strongest collections I've seen all season long. I cant wait to wear these again!!

Which are your faves?

Nicole by O.P.I Kardashian Collection Swatches: Part 1

Hi loves and happy Black Friday!!

  I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and for those of you shopping the crazy deals I hope you are having a safe day and finding all those deals!! For today I have the First part of the NOPI Kardashian Kolors Collection. I've been so excited about this collection since the moment I saw the promo pics so without further delay here is Part One. Here are the cremes and soft shimmers.
Khloe had a little Lam-Lam. Gag at the name lol... But boy do I love this color. This is easily one of my favorite cremes to come out this season. It's the perfect shade of Peacock Teal creme. It's dark and sexy but it remains Teal and never goes Black. Great Two coat formula.

Kim-plenty in Love..... LOOOLS... Anywho.. I LOVE this color. It's a soft, milky Pink with subtle Blue micro shimmer. Did I already mention I love this? This is just SO pretty and girly. For this one I used Three coats of color.

 All Kendall-ed Up. This one is your standard Pink creme. This is very flashy and bright. Great classic color. Two coats.

It's all about Glam. An awesome shade of White shimmery goodness. This is Winter in a bottle. One of my favorites from the collection. This is a Three coater with a smooth formula.

My Empire My Rules. A classic Taupe creme. This dries a bit darker on the nail than it is on the bottle and on me it leans VERY Green. I really love this color even though it is not very original but I don't own that many Taupes so this is a breath of fresh air for me. Very wearable and flattering.

Sealed with a Kriss. Classic Vampy Red creme. Very much a Holiday color. Not something I would run for but still a very nice classic shade. Great Two coat formula.

Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi. A bright Coral-y Red creme/jelly. Again this is a rather safe color but very bright and eye catching. Similar to Essie's Geranium.

Hard Kourth Fashionista. A brown creme with some touches of Red. This is like Burgundy- Brown. I don't normally enjoy shades of Brown but this one I actually like because of that slight Red undertone. Great Two coat formula.

  So that is it for this half. I am a big fan of these colors. There is a lot of variety just in this part of the collection and that always makes for good groups. The formula on all of these is great and easy to work with. I'd have to say my faves from this part are : Kloe had a little Lam-Lam, Kim-plenty in Love, Hard Kourt Fashionista and All about Glam. I'd leave behind the Reds just because Red is Red and there is a LOT of it out there. The Taupe is a great shade but I doesn't make my heart jump like the others... I can't wait to show you guys the glitters! That is where this collection really comes to life!

Which are your faves from this half?
