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.

 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.

 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!!

SOB, Cry and Rage... Oh and Floam!

(*^IYWI@^@)%#!(#_!!

  SO mad :(. I have not had a "bad" nail break since I first went to shorty nails. I think back in 2011 was when I decided to go to shorties. So, I had not experienced a "devastating" nail break for over a year. Yesterday, as I was prepping for a swatchathon, I snagged my middle nail on something and it broke in a bad way. I wanted to cry lolol.. If you have been following my recent shenanigans on You Tube you know that I have A LOT of product that needs to be swatched/ and or nail arted with lol. I SO do not need my nails looking like THIS... I know I LOVE me some nubbies.... But this is TOO nubby for me lolol!
..... Ugh.... So I figured, might as well actually enjoy wearing my Floam. I had only gotten to swatch it once, a long time ago. My bottle is pretty "old" and it had thickened up a little bit, this was not an issue though. I just added a few drops of nail polish thinner and shook it really well. The consistency was fine after I thinned it a bit. I used Three easy, thin coats to get my nail fully covered in Floamy bits. I top coated it with Two coats of Cult Nail Wicked Fast. Even though my nails are SUPER short I am still loving the Floam-y goodness!

  Also! Here is another You Tube vid! This one covers the contents of my Ikea Helmers :D


 I will be posting stashed swatches until my nails grow to an acceptable length :(. I really need to/can't wait get into my swatches and nail art again! I totally want get stuff done and then shiz like this keeps happenin lolol!!! In the meantime I will continue to focus on my FAQ video series and taking my vitamins to make sure my nails grow out fast :D!!
