Halloween Mish-Mash with KBShimmer Shades

(**Press Samples**)
Hello beauties! Today I have a playful Halloween themed mish-mash with shades by KBShimmer.

KBShimmer Jack- Jack is a KBShimmer classic which Christy has brought back for a limited time this Fall. This cool shade is a black jelly base packed with burnt orange hexes and micro bars as well as black glitter. The black jelly base is is "sheer" enough to allow layering this shade to create cool effects. It is also opaque enough that the shade can reach opacity on it's own as seen here. I wore Three thin coats of Jack. The shade has a great and easy to work with formula. I also love how shiny and smooth it dries.
KBShimmer Kiss & Spell- Kiss and Spell is a playful Halloween-ie glitter topper. This blend is the most perfect mash of green, orange, yellow, purple and black hexes accented by star shapes in green, purple and orange. I really enjoyed this topper and the awesome effect it creates. I found it fairly easy to work with and was surprised at how easy the stars were to place. I chose to layer it over KBShimmer Chick me Out
All of these shades are available now from KBShimmer.com and retail for $8.75. You may also head to the KBShimmer website to find international e-tailers.

KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers & Right as Reign

(**Press Samples**)
Hi guys and happy thursday! 

 I'm not feeling particularly chatty today.. So I'ma just get on with it... Another day, another KBShimmer pairing ;). 

 This regal pairing comes to you courtesy of the KBShimmer Early Summer collection. I chose to pair KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers and Right as Reign because they looked so perfectly sexy together. Run! It's the Coppers is a magnificent shade of true Copper toned linear holographic. The holographic effect is outstanding in this color, and practically impossible to capture in photos. 
 Right as Reign is a perfect shade if Indigo crelly. I love that this shade leans more toward the deep violet side and not Blue. I didn't know it but I had been craving this color for a while now. The formula on this baby is just amazing and does great in Two easy coats. I love how inky and rich this color is. 

I hope you guys are having a wonderful day!! Me, I'm definitely ready for the weekend....

Everybody's Doin' It! O.P.I Sheer Tints Watercolor Look

(**Press Release**)
Happy Friday! 

 Ok, so I mentioned taking a break yesterday. I fully intend to do that, but I figured I might as well finish out this week ;-D. Today's post is something you guys might be sick of seeing, but I really wanted to try it out for myself... The famous O.P.I Sheer Tint Top Coats "Watercolor" mani. I had to, I just HAD to!! 
opi sheer tints photo DSCN8388_zps14447ec2.jpg
 I started with a base of Cult Nails Tempest, which is a perfect, clean White creme. I top coated my base to make sure the surface was really dry before I started working with the O.P.I Sheer Tints. I basically just randomly "blobbed" bits of color over my white base in a completely random pattern. There was absolutely no rhyme or reason to the way the colors were placed. I used all Four of the Sheer Tints. In the photo I am holding O.P.I Don't Violet me Down. Which, as the name suggests, is a Violet sheer tint. I also used O.P.I I can Teal you Like Me, which is a gorgeous Aqua sheer tint. Also in there are O.P.I Be Megentale With Me, Rosy sheer tint; and O.P.I I'm Never Ambarassed, a Yellow-y sheer tint. 
 I finished my look off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top, followed by a coat of INM Northern Lights... Because glitter. Even though I've seen a million versions of these, I love each one as much as the last. I love how colorful they always turn out :D.

 I hope you guys have a great weekend!

KBShimmer Winter- Holiday Releases for 2013

(**Press Samples**)
Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! 

 Today I want to share some more Holiday releases from the amazing KBShimmer. Along with an 11- piece, blogger inspired, Holiday collection; KBShimmer also released Four Holiday themed creations of her own (as well as Seven new shifting multichromes which I will be covering sooooon). In this group Christy did One glitter topper, a jelly based beauty and Two of her signature epic creamy based glitter bombs.  Shall we get on with it? 

 photo Ribbetcollage_zps3ef8a6fe.jpg
 All swatches are shown with a top coat for smoothness and shine. 

KBShimmer Kringle All the Way over Bettina Jingle Belle
Kringle All the Way is a magical, dotty blend of traditional Holiday colors suspended in a clear base which is packed of tiny Holographic twinkle. There are dots in Green, Red, Silver, Light Gold and Light Green. I had no issues in the application of this fun and chunky topper. The bigger bits came out with no fishing and gave no issues come application time. I used Two coats of Kringle All the Way over my base color. Doesn't it look like little scattered ornaments? I just adore this.

EDIT: Don't forget to buy your bottle of Kringle All The Way by the 13th, and $4 per bottle will be donated to Toys For Tots!

KBShimmer All Elf'd Up
 Fun fact: So, initially when Christy and I were discussing my collab shade for her blogger collection (Merry Pinkmas), this is kinda what we had come up with (I still have all Four prototypes ;).. And then I had an "aha- moment" and decided to make the base Pink and to add neon bits to make it more "LTHP- esque". 
  I was so happy so see that Christy went ahead and refined the shade and released a White based crelly with a Holiday glitter blend. All Elf'd Up is a blend of traditional Red, Green Silver and White glitter in varying Hex sizes and micro bars. As usual the formula on this baby was magical and was good to go in Three thin coats. The spread of the glitter is perfect, and the coverage of the White base is dead on. Peppermint Bark anyone? 

Edit: KBShimmer Snow Flaking Way
Snow Flaking  Way= MUCH EPIC! This baby is a Royal/ Grape Purple jelly base packed of Silver, Holo and Burple glitter as well a Holo snowflake shaped glitter. I had no luck getting the snowflakes out, but I could care less. I was completely smitten with the shade of Purple of the base jelly. The glitter makes this twinkle in the most beautiful way. I used Three thin coats for full and even coverage. Purple lovers NEED this beauty. 

KBShimmer When Doves Sigh
 When Doves Sigh is a soft Grey crelly, packed full of micro Twinkle and accented by glitters in varying shapes and sizes in an array of Fuchsia, Aqua, Purple and Blue. This shade is SOOO KBShimmer. She always woks wonders with her Blends of Aquas, Pinks and Purples. I am madly in love with the soft Grey base and how the colors pop against it. I used Three thin coats for full coverage. 

 I'm hoping to catch up on a bunch of stuff today. My goodness, we are practically Half-way through December and I've not managed to do a single Holiday mani o.O... For shame.. Anywho, I plan on doing some of that today. I also really want to get the amazing KBShimmer Multichromes swatched for you guys. They are seriously mind-blowing. I'm actually doing a mini vid for all of them to show the amazing shift as no amount of photos would do them justice. 

 Don't forget that my KBShimmer Blogger Holiday Collection giveaway is still going until Midnight EST tomorrow. Good luck and thank you to everyone participating!!! 

 I really love all of these so much. Kringle All the Way and Snow Flaking Way definitely have stolen my heart. Any faves here?

(Part of) Sation's Miss-Terranean Fall 2014 Collection

(**Press samples**)
*insert giant Alaska Thunderf*ck* HIIIIIIIIII here. 

   Today I have half of Sations newest collection, Miss-Terranean. This lovely fall collection is made up of Six creamy beauties, all inspired by the Mediterranean vibe. I feel shitty that I only have half to show you. I do have the full collection in my hands, but I only got half swatched, before the moving madness began (back in and still in Florida, everything will be ok). I will eventually find, and unpack the rest of the collection and get it up on here for you guys. 
 What I did do, was swatch my Three faves first, and here they are!! 
 photo SationMissTerranian_zps169c425c.jpg

Sation Don Wannabee
MMMMMMmmmmmMMMMM!!!!!!! So, Sation got me right in the feels with this gorg shade of, practically electric, Cobalt Blue creme. Don Wannabe was a hard shade to photograph as it was just so vibrant and beautiful. There are a bit of vibrant Violet undertones that just refused to photograph. It is just perfect. The formula is amazing on this shade. At first it seems a bit thin, but manageable. Then it is perfectly smooth, even, opaque and glassy in Two easy coats. Shown are two coats of color and NO top coat. DAT SHINE!! 

Sation Hottie Biscotti
 This shade is a beautiful take on the nudey, greige trend. The formula on this beauty is between a creme and a jelly (crelly). I loved the formula on Hottie Biscotti, because it gave this shade a beautiful squishy finish. I used Two easy coats for this shade as well. Oh, and one is also shown without a top coat. 

 Sation Happy Wine-y People
 I swatches this one because I was so on the fence about it, I just had to see it on. I only used Two coats, but I realized after looking at pics, I really should have done Three coats. Happy Wine-y People is a deep Ox-blood crelly with Plummy undertones. Shown are Two coats and no top coat. This shade is so vampy and just classic! 

  Missing from my swatches are I Need a Spumani (beautiful pistachio creme), Napoleon Dyna-Matte (vibrant red creme, wondering if it is a matte) and Tira-Miss U (lovely grey-lavender creme). As I said above, I really hope I can find and unpack these soon. I only have one of my Helmers with me right now. The other Three are in storage, don't worry though!! It is definitely climate controlled. I did pick a good Helmer to bring with me though. It is the one with all my Bettina, Cult Nails and A England goodies along with a lot more great nail art polishes. 

 At some point I WILLLLLL swatch the KBShimmer Blogger collection and I even have a set to give away! Very excited about that as I've not done a giveaway in a while. I'm also excited to show you guys my shade Merry Pinkmas. I know many bloggers have shown this collection, but I am so ashamed that I've not had a chance to sit and swatch those yet. I really need to make that my priority. 

 So back to Sation. I'm just in awe of Don Wannabe and I love the look of Hottie Biscotti. I think both of these shades would look amazing on so many skin tones. I need to see Happy Wine-y People done properly. That was the only shade I've had minor issues with from this group so far. I'm sure the rest will be fine though. Sation rarely disappoints, and to be honest.. I kinda suck at applying crelly- vampy shades. I seriously do, they make me nervous haha. 

 The entire collection is available now from www.misspn.com, $5 per shade

Any of these Three speaking to you??

Cult Nails Just Because

Happy Humpday!!! 

  Today I have a very special shade by Cult Nails. This is Just Because. This beautiful glitterbomb was specially created by Maria for a fashion group she belongs to, the story is quite funny and cute. Just Because is not and will not be for sale, so I feel a bit... mean posting this. How could I not share this fantastic beauty though? I feel so privileged and thankful to have such a special Cult Nails creation in my collection. Just Because is named so because it is now a shade that is gifted by Maria "just because" :D. 
Cult Nails Just Because
Cult Nails Just Because photo DSCN8523_zpsa5fa5adc.jpg
 Where do I start? There is so much win in this polish!! The base is a Pinky-toned, Red jelly PACKED full of Silver micro-sparkles and a rainbow of small hexagonal glitter. Just Because is painfully sparkly and beautiful. Just Because has a very multi-dimensional look to it, jelly sammich in a bottle. The formula is very easy to work with and does great in Two coats. If I had longer nails, I may have needed a Third coat to cover VNL. 
  Even though Just Because is packed with glitters, it does not have a rough finish and it is not a top coat eater. I did Two coats of color and then top coated with Wicked Fast to really make it shine and sparkle. I could not stop staring at my nails when I wore this. I kind of wanted to lick them... Let's pretend I didn't say (type?) that haha. They really looked so delicious. 

 I can't thank Maria enough for gifting me with Just Because. It is such a special shade and I really do feel lucky to have it in (on) my hands. Now, please please don't be mad at me for posting this pretty ♥ ;). 

 Have you been lucky enough to get a Just Because

NCLA Sweet Revenge Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
BLAAAAAAAARRRRGGGG! 
  
  It's Monday... Me no likey Mondays. I had a nice, mellow weekend, those are always nice. Today I wanted to share my very first NCLA polishes with you. NCLA is an indie brand based out of, you guessed it, LA! They have some ADORABLE polishes and amazing decals as well. Since swatches and looks started floating around the bloggersphere featuring this brand, I had been wantint to try them. So, when the lovely people at nailpolishcanada.com contacted me about featuring some of the new NCLA shades I jumped at the opportunity. These pretties are from NCLA's Sweet Revenge Collection. 

NCLA Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles 
Mostly Sunny with a chance of Sprinkles photo DSCN7700_zpsd8b95532.jpg
 ADORBZ!!!!!!!!! Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles is a sweet, white based, baby Blue creme packed full of small Black hexagonal "sprinkles". I love the shade of Blue of the base, it's so clean and vivid. The formula on this color was a bit thick, and the glitter bits like to clump together. I found that keeping a light hand made the application much easier, and also achieved a more even spread of the sprinkles. I used Two light coats for my swatch. A top coat was a must to bring out shine and smooth out the surface. I absolutely ADORE this effect and kind of want to nom on my nails.  

NCLA Sugar Fix
Sugar Fix photo DSCN7685_zps9dc67caf.jpg
NOM NOM NOM!!!!!! I will come straight out and say that this polish won me over on the basis of it being a Grey-jelly base alone! I. LOVE. GREY. JELLIES!!!!!! I love the mix of "cloudy and colorful" in this polish. The base is a chic shade of true Grey jelly, and the accents of Aqua and Fuchsia glitters are just perfect. The application of this color is effortless. I used Three thin coats to build up the jelly base to full opacity. This swatch is also shown with a top coat to bring out the shine. 

 I am so happy to have finally had a chance to try out this awesome brand. I love their packaging and their vibe. They are so trendy and "with it". NCLA is available via several e-tailers, mine were provided to me by the lovely people of nailpolishcanada.com, where they retail for $16. 

 Have you tried any NCLA polishes? I feel like I need to pick up a few more. Which have been you faves?

Ninja Polish Mystic Glacier over Cult Nails Time Traveler

Hi hello and happy humpday!! 

  I swear I have not forgotten about Truffle Tuesday. She made a beautiful pick for me yesterday and I can't wait to get to work on the concept I have in my head. Yesterday was not a very good day for me health-wise. I had been feeling pretty well for the past few weeks, but yesterday and today have been quite rough. 
 Anyways, today I wanted to share this beautiful layering combination. These are Two polishes I had been lusting after for quite a long time. Mystic Glacier was/is one of those coveted indies. The kind that sold out within seconds of being listed on the website. I knew why, but once I actually got the polish in my hands, I absolutely understood why I needed Mystic Glacier in my hands. My jaw literally dropped when I opened my package that day. If you are a fan of polishes like Clarins 230, MaxFactor Fantasy Fire and the like, you absolutely need this beauty in you life. 
Ninja Polish Mystic Glacier photo DSCN6871_zps53dc7b4b.jpg
 Mystic Glacier is a Blue based micro shimmer shifter. This baby goes from icy Blue, to Green/Teal, to Purple, to Copper... It is just unbelievable. I'm fairly certain this polish can reach opacity on its own but I really wanted to see it layered. That is the bestest part about these incredible shifting polishes; layering them over EVERYTHING :D. I went with a dark base color to see what shades it would bring out. 
Layering Mystic Glacier over Cult Nails Time Traveler brought out these beautiful Plum and Copper shimmer that shifted to Green-Teal at extreme angles. My nails looked like little, beautiful scarabs. I used one coat of Mystic Glacier over my base
 This shade dries a bit matte but adding a top coat brings out all that beautiful and amazing shimmer. I topped my nails with some KBShimmer Clearly on Top and wore these for about Four days. 

Cult Nails Time Traveler 
Cult Nails Time Traveler photo DSCN6859_zpsce1ef2fc.jpg
 Time Traveler is this goooooooooorgeous shade of saturated, rich Navy jelly. It is a thick jelly, but thick in a good way. This color has incredible coverage, and if you have a light hand, you can do with one coat. I used two coats because I really wanted a deep, intense finish. This polish is also insanely glossy and that only gets better once top coated, like Navy patent leather. I love that it remains Blue in all lighting even though it is such a rich and dark color. I can't believe it took me so long to get this, but I am SOO happy I finally did. 

Mystic Glacier is available from Ninja Polish, online. Time Traveler is available from cultnails.com as well as Harlow & Co and now Beautylish!  

 I will be working on my nail care routine post! I'm pretty excited about that because it has definitely been a long time coming. Thanks for stopping by today loves!!

KBShimmer Spring 2013 Collction Swatches

(**Press Sample**)
Good afternoon lovely people!!! 

  Today I have a very... VERY delayed post. I feel like a complete tool for getting these out so late. This is the AMAAAAZING Spring 2013 collection by KBShimmer. Worry not, I will be having the KBShimmer Summer Swatches up early next week! I was just saying on LTHP's Facebook how behind I am in my collections. However, I've been feeling well and I'm ready to tackle the mountain of polishes I have to swatch.  
 Onto this collection, I am so sorry it has taken me this long to get these swatches done and up. I do hope you still enjoy these swatches though! I am just enamored with KBShimmer. Her polishes are perfection in every way. I always look forward to a good KBShimmer swatchathon because they never disappoint. 
KBShimmer Spring Collage photo KBShimmerSpring_2_zps55e596d4.jpg
Since there are a lot of pretties to cover I am doing a jump today. Trust me, you want to see these up close and personal, so keep on reading ♥.

O.P.I Oz the Great and Powerful Collection Swatches

(**Press Sample**)
Good morning loves!! 

  Today I will be sharing my swatches of O.P.I's newest Summer Soft Shades collection which was inspired by the new film, Oz the Great and Powerful. This lovely collection is made up Three nude jellies, Three layering glitters and One new Liquid Sand shade for a total of Seven new shades.
 I will be SO very brutally honest. I was fully prepared to loathe this collection. I was ready to be all like "OMG it's so boring, the glitters suck etc". I found myself nomming on my words. I always think I will hate the Soft Shades, and I always end up enamored with them. I think it is because, while these are not colors I would normally pic for myself, they always end up looking so lovely and feminine. I can't help but enjoy the softer, healthy look these shades give my hands.

O.P.I I Theodora You
  I Theodora You is a lovely shade of soft Ballerina slipper pink jelly-creme. This color has a perfect squishy formula and applies very easily. I used Three easy coats for my swatch above.

O.P.I Lights of Emerald City over I Theodora You
 Lights of Emerald City is a blend of larger White squares and small opalescent squares suspended in a clear base. This topper is fairly easy to work with and I didn't have many issues getting the larger pieces to come out. The best thing to do is to store your bottle upside down for a little bit before application so the larger bits settle to the top of the bottle. I really love this glitter a LOT.

O.P.I Glints of Galinda
 Glints of Galinda is a really neutral beige jelly-creme. I'd say it is a sandy beige and it seems to dry just a tad darker on the nail than the color in the bottle. This shade pulled Peachy on me, which I really liked. I used Three thin coats for my swatch.

O.P.I When Monkeys Fly over O.P.I Glints of Galinda
 When Monkeys Fly is a mix of large Golden hexes and smaller Silver prismatic hexes in a clear base. This was the "problem child" of the collection for many gals. O.P.I decided to go with intentional curling (Taco Glitter) on the larger pieces, which bothered a lot of gals. Personally, I did not find the curling to be as drastic as some people made them out to be. Yes, they were slightly curved, but I did not find it to be an issue. The trickier part was getting the pieces to stay on my nail as I was applying the polish. I used more of a dabbing method to get the pieces on my nails. In the end, I really liked this glitter and I don't mind the slightly curved pieces.

O.P.I Don't Burst my Bubble 
 Don't Burst my Bubble  is a very, very light shade of Pink creme- jelly. It is practically a White jelly, with the slightest hint of Pink undertones. This was the sheerest of all, I had to do Four thin coats on this shade. That said, the formula was easy to work with and very even.

O.P.I Which is Witch? over O.P.I Don't Burst my Bubble 
 Which is Witch?  is a really lovely and twinkly blend of micro sparkles. Micro bars and slightly larger glitter Hexes in a Silver prismatic finish all suspended in a clear base. This polish is PACKED with sparkle and has a great spread of the glitter. I just love this look. It is dreamy and fantastical.

O.P.I What Wizardry is This? 
 This is the liquid sand shade that was released with this collection. What Wizardry is This? is a great shade of sparkling Bronze texture. I did not think I would enjoy this, but I do love it quite a lot. It is such a rich shade. It reminds me of coffee for some reason... Random I know haha. I used Two coats for my swatch, but I should have used a Third thin one.

  And there you have O.P.I's Oz Collection. What are your thoughts on this collection? I find these to be adorable, clean and feminine. I really ended up liking the glitters as well. I suppose it is a good thing I do not naturally gravitate to shades like these. They usually end up being unique in my stash, and that is always a good thing. If I were to only get ONE shade from this collection, it would definitely be I Theodora You.

 Which are your picks?

Spring Rolls Jelly Sammiches!

Hello my beauties and happy Friday!! 

  Today I have a quick post for you guys featuring some yummy glitter-jelly sammiches. While I was swatching my China Glaze Bitz 'n' Pieces Collection I figured it would be fun to see them sandwiched as well. 
 I won't be going into huge detail about each look since these are simple jelly sammiches. This is still one of my favorite methods to spice up a plain manicure. I will break down the polishes used from base color to top color to keep things easy haha!

China Glaze Tart-y for the Party, Bling it On- Sammiched with O.P.I Care to Danse?

China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around, Mosaic Madness- Sammiched with O.P.I Don't touch my Tutu

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On, Graffiti Glitter- Sammiched with O.P.I Don't touch my Tutu

China Glaze Fade into Hue, Glitz 'n'n PIeces- Sammiched with O.P.I My Pointe Exactly
 If you are a lover of the jelly sandwich look you will definitely love the Bitz 'n ' Pieces Collection by China Glaze! Also, I really want O.P.I (or anyone) to release more jellies a'la O.P.I NYC Ballet Collection. Those were, and still are, some of my favorite polishes ever.

  For some strange reason I am SO very reado for the weekend to start!! Maybe I should rock a jelly sammich to get it started right!!

Picture Polish Kryptonite and Monroe

Hello and happy Tuesday!! 
  
  Today I have Two stunning polishes by Aussie brand Picture Polish. I will be keeping this post a little short as it is an AWESOME day out today and I really want to take advantage of this Sunlight!! 

Picture Polish Kryptonite by Cathy of More Nail Polish. 
 Every so often Picture Polish teams up with bloggers and some of their e-tailers to create custom colors. This particular beauty was created by Cathy of Aussie nail polish blog More Nail Polish. There is a cute story as to how I came to have this pretty. If you watched my "Origins Video", you may know that Cathy's was the first nail blogs I ever read. Well, turns out Cathy had seen my video and she contacted me to let me know how flattered and touched she was to find out that she was one of my muses (I was just plain amazed that she even knew about my blog, or who I was). Once we were done fangirling over each other Cathy said that she wanted to send me a bottle of Kryptonite and of course I said YES! She surprised me with an AWESOME Aussie care package and I will be showing you the rest of the beauties later on (Hello, Lynn CtD, Layla Flash Back, Ulta3!!).
 So, back to Kryptonite. It is the most beautiful shade of deep Emerald Jelly packed full of Holographic glassflecks. The formula on this pretty is amazing and does well in Three thin coats.

Picture Polish Monroe
Monroe is a delicious shade of Raspberry jelly packed full of Holographic glassflecks and "dust". This is a similar finish to Kryptonite. However, the sparkle in Monroe is much finer. I love this sparkly twist on a classic shade. The formula on this pretty is really easy to work with, and does well in Three thin coats.

 That is all for me today. I'm tempted to put on my bikini and lay out in my back yard!! It is seriously stunning outside today! AND I need to work on building a base tan as I am haunting this house with my paleness....  But! Back to polish!! Aren't these so pretty!! I can't ever get tired of jelly based holos. They are just plain yummy!!

 Do you have any Pictures Polishes? Which are your faves?

Indie Mania! KBShimmer Swatches

Monday Monday... 

  So when this indie brand contacted me I pretty much did a little dance, squeed and promptly replied with a big YES, I will feature you. The brand I am talking about is KBShimmer. Christy has been in the bath and beauty game for some time but just recently got into the polish- making game. KBShimmer nail polish first caught my eye when the brand was featured in this Beautylish article. I loved the uniqueness of her polishes, and the fact that they did not need undies (A base color). 
  There was no way I could narrow down which polishes to review so I asked Christy to send me some of her personal favorite polishes. I could not be more thrilled with the pretties if I had picked them myself. These are some of the most unique and beautiful polishes I've ever seen/ am happy to own!
To see swatches of these amazing indie beauties continue reading!

Muffin Monday!! Aphrodite Lacquers Rumrunner gets "Giltified"

Happy Muffin Monday!!

  It has been SO long since the last time I did a Muffin Monday. I miss having my kittehs halp on the blog. Have you guys missed Miss Muffin? She sure has had a nice little break, but it was time to have her come back and help me with my Monday picks :D. I literally could not decide which of my Aphrodite Lacquers I wanted to go with, so I had Muffin pick for me. As usual she picked a total win! Well, all of the options are total wins... Onto the kitteh!

Aphrodite Lacquers Rumrunner
  This is such an amazing color I don't even know where to begin. Rumrunner is an amazing Berry toned jelly base packed full of different tones of small Red, Pink and Berry hexes and smaller Silver twinkle glitter. Uh-MAZING! I absolutely LOVE the fact that it is an opaque polish and it does not need to be layered. This color really does remind me of a tall, delicious drink! I used Three thin coats for full opacity. I love this jelly sammich in a bottle.

  Since I actually got to rock this over the weekend I layered my Zoya Gilty Gold flake top coat. I could not stop staring at my nails. I could have worn this for ever! I topped it all off with Cult Nails Wicked Fast  top coat.
 Muffin is happy to be back and I am so happy to have her help me decide which amazing polishes to wear again. I can't believe how long it had been since I last had Miss Muffin on the blog. That makes me feel bad mm'kaay... Muffin Mondays are an LTHP tradition, I shall try to keep up with it like I used to!

Thanks for stopping by!
