HITS Hefesto- Silver Holo Amazingness!


  OMG.. OMG.... OMGGG!!!!!!! The Sun was really out today and I got TONS of swatches done!! Yay! Brazil is where it's at loool! I don't know much about the Brand HITS other than it comes from Brazil and they make some AMAZEBALLS linear holographics.... I'm still wiping the drool of my chin.
Hefesto is a Silver linear holographic. The holographic effect is SO strong. my pictures do this very little justice. Now where this holo really stands out from my other Two Silver linear holos is in the formula. OMG this color has an outstanding formula and it is fully opaque in Three coats. What I love the most about the formula is that it doesn't have that signature PITA dragging and streaking that most linear holos seem to have. Not this baby! This is just amazing in every aspect of the word!

You just can't go wrong with a good 'ol fashioned holo!!! Epic WIN!!!

HITS polishes are available from Shop Llarowe. I love this e-tailer because she carries all kinds of HTF brands and she is a sweetheart! I highly reccomend her shop.

31 Day Challenge! Day 24- Inspired by a Book

Hi loves!!!

  Today's task is to create nails inspired by a book. Originally I was going to create something based on some of my favorite authors. I couldn't decide on a book by Ellen Hopkins or Chuck Palahniuk because I can't freaking freehand!  I've pretty much read every book by these Two authors. So what did I do? I went with Cat in the Hat! loool!!! It started as a joke by Mr. LTHP and it evolved into this mani haha....
 So.. This is not my best work lol... Because of my horrid "freehand" additions haha. But basically my Index finger is based on the cat's belly. The middle finger is pretty obvious right? The Ring finger is based on all the funky stripes you always see in Dr. Seuss artwork and finally my pinkie is based on the Pink mess the "Things" make. I used Zoya Sooki and Purity. I also used O.P.I Black Onyx and I also used Ruby Kisses Hot Pink and China Glaze Empowerment.
  Lool! I'm so running on empty!! Hahah.... Inspiration week is kicking the caRp out of me!!! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Book nails!

31 Day Challenge! Day 23- Inspired by a Movie

Hi loves!!!

  Today's nails are supposed to be inspired by a movie. I had a million ideas for this and then I ran out of time. I got wrapped up in swatching a bunch of stuff and it got late in the day and I just wanted to be done loool! So what did I do? I went with my "safe choice": Black Swan. Now, don't get me wrong. I love the crap out of this movie, but there have been so many Black Swan manis out there... That said.. I hope you like my take on it.
  For this mani I started with bases of Glitter Gal Light as a Feather and Zoya Raven. Then for my middle and Ring fingers I used Bundle Monster plate BM214 and Black and White Konad Special polishes. For my Index and Pinkie I used Konad plate M77. I topped off my Pinkie and Middle Finger with some INM Northern Lights because I have a fetish and at least One nail per mani has to have it hahaha! 

I think it's pretty even though it's so simple. Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Movie nails!
