Orange Sprinkles

I asked hubby what color to wear today he chose Orange.  I pulled out Confetti Conga Line.  It's a mid-tone orange with gold shimmer.  I layered one coat of Klean Color 88 Fireworks. It has lots of multi-colored hex and round gold glitters.  It looks so much better in real life y'all *-*

Here is Conga Line all by itself

My nails are growing and I'm trying to keep them short. Lol!

Until next time please have a great nail polish day. (✿◠‿◠) Share/Bookmark

Dr. Remedy Jolly & Joy Collection 2011 Swatches and Review

Good Morning,

Dr. Remedy has 5 new shades that are rich and radiant from the Jolly & Joy Collection.  2 micro fine glitters and 3 gorgeous shimmers.  I finally had time to swatch these up.

ESSENTIAL Emerald a lovely green with silver shimmer.  Easy 2 coats

REVIVE Ruby Red is such a gorgeous velvety red shimmer that glows.  2 coats

PASSION Purple is another beauty a rich plummy red purple shimmer.  2 coats

RESOLUTION Red Glitter superfine red and silver glitter.  Very opaque! If you were in a hurry you can slap this one in one thick coat and be out the door.  I used 2 coats.  Fast drying, but dries to a matte finish. 

SERENE Silver Glitter another superfine blue, magenta and silver micro glitter. It too dries to a dull finish. 2 coats 

Just for fun here are some looks

This is Resolution Red Glitter with funky french Revive Ruby Red tips.  Look how shiny it looks with topcoat!

This is Serene Silver Glitter with funky french Passion Purple tips.  Also with topcoat.

Overall, I like this collection.  Before  swatching them I thought they were just ordinary polishes, while applying them and seeing them on my nails they are so rich and vibrant. Just lovely! I'm really impressed with the glitters on how opaque they are.  No problems with the formula just make sure to add a good topcoat for the glitters for shine and to have a smooth finish.

What are your thoughts?

China Glaze “Colours from the Capitol”

China Glaze “Colours from the Capitol”

China Glaze’s “Colours from the Capitol” collection. This collection of 12 new nail polish shades is inspired exclusively by one distinct setting in The Hunger Games - the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes.

I'm liking this whole collection.  What about you?

Venique Nail Lacquers

Cosmoprof has a new brand of polish Venique and it's made in the USA. What's different about Venique Nail Lacquer is that it is made with Sil-Tek a silicone based ingredient that creates flexibility within the polish to guard against chipping and flaking.

"Your nails expand when they get wet and contract again when they dry", explains Melissa Hoogendoom, senior marketing executive. Sil-Tex's flexibility enables the polish to accommodate those normal variations.

In addition, the diamond dust inside the topcoat makes it extra shiny .  These polishes suppose to take a full 10 minutes to dry.  Sil-Tek comes with a surprise you can buff it just a little bit and the shine will come right back.  I guess this means when dulls just buff it back to shine.

My display didn't have the topcoat so I used Gelous and Seche Vite.

Cosmoprof will be rolling out January 2012 with 78 colors.  I'm sorry to say you won't see Venique nail lacquer in mass market :(

Blue Suede Shoes  a steel blue shimmer. It has some silver veining in the bottle.   It was opaque with one coat but I used 2 coats. Love the pro-wide brush.

Twinkling Snow hexagon iridescent glitter with small holographic glitter.  I used one coat.  I think it looks like galaxy nails.

These pictures are with Topcoat

I'm loving this mani and  look forward to getting more of these!
