Rimmel Climax + Sinful Colors Frenzy

Fun times with tape and Polish!

  This was so much fun! I can't wait to try playing with tape again.

 Fun with Tape and Konad
Purple Frenzy
  I decided to try to do some taping and I really had fun with this because it was so easy and the results were great. I got the idea from Chloe's Nails she does great things with just tape. I really love this Sinful Colors glitter too. This is the ever popular "Frenzy" which consists of Purple and bright Blue glitter suspended in a clear base. For this it was more of a dabbing application. Just awesomeness!

Rimmel Climax
60 Seconds

Direct Sunlight

   "Climax" is a lovely shimmery Lavender that flashes Pink and Golden. This polish has a great smooth formula. I needed Two coats for full opacity with this color. This polish dries pretty fast. The brush on this was weird. It was a wide flat brush like the kind that comes with the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure line. I have a love hate relationship with these kinds of brushes because I feel like I have very little control over it...
What do you guys think, do any of you know what I'm talking about with the brush?

Orly Meet me Under the Mistletoe

*Still Drooling*

Orly Meet me Under the Mistletoe
'Tis the Season

  *Cleaning Drool* So this is "Meet me Under the Mistletoe". A dark hunter Green jelly base packed full of lighter Green/ Turquoise/ Slightly Golden duchrome glassflecks. This polish has great coverage, I only needed two coats. The sparkle in this is beyond amazing, it seems to glow no matter what light it's in. I just absolutealy fell in love with this and I couldn't bring myself to stamp on it I just wanted to wear it. Epic WIN!

China Glaze Shower Together

I do love a great Teal...

China Glaze Shower Together
Funky Stamps
It's a lot more Teal than this picture shows. 
Sunset Light. This is the closest to actual color I could get.
  "Shower Together" is quite possibly my new favorite Teal creme. It's a darker Teal but I like that it's not dusty or too dark like most Teals seem to be. This is the perfect Teal for me, it's bold but not obnoxious. The formula is great, of course. The pigmentation is excellent, I only needed two thin coats. It dries very fast and shiny. Sorry my pictures aren't as accurate as I'd like them to be. I'll do an edit to this post soon with better swatches :)

Thanks for Reading,

China Glaze Frosty + Midnight Kiss

This is just amazing...

  Also, I cannot believe it's already December!!!

China Glaze Frosty
'Tis the Season to be naughty or Nice
Silvery, white goodness

  "Frosty" is a pearly White base with White and holographic micro glitter. This is an amazing polish. It is very opaque at two coats but at Three it was perfection for me. The formula on this is great, very easy to apply. I really love the finish of this polish, it's classy and beautiful. I love that it is not a bright white and that the finished product is not milky. If you are familiar with O.P.I's "Princesses Rule!", this would be like a White version of that. Just lovely.

Frosty + Midnight Kiss Ruffian
  Then as you can see I attempted a ruffian.... I need some practice. "Midnight Kiss" is a standard bright Gold foil finish polish. Application of this is amazing you could easily get away with one coat. That was all I needed for my Ruffian. The color combo is sooo amazing in person. I want to try this again sometime but with the addition of a third color maybe and hopefully it will turn out better. I cannot get over how amazing this collection is as a whole.

Thanks for reading :)
