LTHP Quickies! Cirque Colors NYFW Stamped Look

(**Press Sample**)
Monday, and November, already?! While I was cleaning out some folders I stumbled upon this quick look I did using Cirque Colors NYFW. The stamp was done with a Pueen stamping plate and Konad white special polish. The plate was Pueen 24.

 This look was finished off by a coat of Seche Vite followed by a coat of Twee & Honey This is Mateness. 

Thanks for coming by today!

How I Wore It: The Cirque Burlesque Collection

(**Press Samples**)
 Happy Wednesday beautiful readers! Today I want to share this look which features Four beautiful new holographic shades by Cirque Nail Polish. This release is inspired by all things Burlesque. It was an absolute must to do something sexy and to find a way to wear all Four of them at once. They are entirely marvelous, and insanely beautiful. 

Cirque Boudoir- This beauty is a classic Fall plum with the added twist of a beautiful holographic finish. 
Cirque Harlow- A lovely shade of antique gold with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Josephine- An unique shade of deep evergreen with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Trocadero- A classic royal blue with a holographic finish.

  For my Index and Middle nails I brought all Four shades together in a four-way gradient by using [THIS] method.  My Ring finger was stamped using a Bundle Monster plate and some Konad Black special polish. I accented my Pinkie and Thumbs with simple touches of Black stones. 
  All of these shades have a perfect formula. They were all opaque in Two easy and perfectly smooth coats. The Burlesque collection is available now from CirqueColors.com and each shade retails for $13.
Is this not the sexiest little collection you've seen in some time? It definitely is for me, I just love them!

How I Wore It: Cirque Back to Basics Collection

(**Press Samples**)
 Happy Wednesday beauties! Today's look goes back to basics. Who doesn't love a classic palette of Black and White? Long time LTHP readers know how much I adore working with these simple colors. Cirque Nail Lacquer recently released new B&W creme shades in her Back to Basics collection. I was very excited to see Cirque venture into making cremes; and even more excited to see she started out with a black and a white creme. More after the jump.

#31DC2013 Days 4 & 5! Green and Blue Nails

(**Most of these products were provided as press samples**)
Never go to bed angry... 

 And never try to nail art when you are sad... or you might end up with derpy looking cats on your nails lol. Now, lemme remind you of why exactly I don't freehand...

#31DC2013 Day Five- Blue Kitteh Nails 
 The base color for my moon is a custom made shade by Honeybuttons Nail polish. She made a beautiful memorial Periwinkle Blue shade for my Muffin called Muffin Picks Blue... It seemed fitting that I used my kitty inspired shade for my kitty nails. This look is a modified version of the owl nail look I did Two years ago. To give my kitties a fuzzy look I used a bit of Sally Hansen Wool Knot. For the eyes I used Nicole by O.P.I Sweet on Pete, and for the pink noses Barielle Smarty Pants Pink. All the Black details were done with Cult Nails Nevermore. I finished the whole thing off with some KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

#31DC2013 Day Four: Green Nails 
 I had actually attempted some more freehand over my Green base, but it was a failure... I shall keep trying.... I am determined to produce some blog-worthy freehand looks! So, for my green nails I give you Cirque nail polish in Erda, from the Arcus collection. This color alone is a work of art. This shade of rich Emerald Green is lit from within thanks to all the beautiful and fine microshimmer. I used Three thin coats for this swatch and a top coat to bring out shine.

 And with that I am official caught up on the challenge prompts! YAY!! Though I am really pondering if I will keep going with the challenge. I was looking at my desk and I am REALLY backed up... Like ridiculously backed up and it is bothering the crapola out of me. We shall see... I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to take this beast on again lool!! I should have known better. 

 Have you seen many awesome Green and Blue looks? I'm off to stalk the interwebs for some Purple inspiration. ♥.

When it doubt... Wax ALL the Things! Wax That... by Cult Nails

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday! 

  Today I have a quick spammy post. Ever since Cult Nails released their Wax finish top coat, Wax That... I've been putting it over just about everything. I am mad about the effect it creates, it is also a quick way to update my manis when I am feeling lazy and don't want to change my polish. So here are a few looks that I ... Waxed lol... Just one coat of Wax That was done over all these.

Cult Nails Love at First Sight waxed.

 Cult Nails Let's Get Dirty 
CN Lets get dirty photo DSCN5782_zps672f2f4c.jpg
 Let's get Dirty is a beautiful shade of muted Taupe which dries to this wax finish on its own and does not need a top coat to achieve this finish. There is also a slight, subtle shimmer to this delicate Taupe shade. It has a fantastic formula and does great in Two coats. It dries fairly quick, but do proceed with caution after application.

 I love this top coat because of the finish it creates, but also because it dries quickly. I hate matte top coats that take their sweet time to dry and then you end up with a ruined mani. That was not the case with Wax That... Can you tell I love how glitters look "waxed"? I also love it over cremes and jellies, but over glitters and shimmers it creates some serious badassery. 

 Did you pick up Wax That and have you found any combos that left you speechless? If so, SHARE!!! :D
