Nicole by Opi Kim-pletely In Love

Couldn't decide what to wear on my nails today so I picked this since I knew I hadn't tried it yet! lol The name is pretty hilarious due to current events, but regardless it is a very pretty color! I thought I would like it on me more though : /
It's probably because it is SUCH a girly shade lol I'd recommend using a nude color under it or a basecoat like DL's ridge filler that helps with sheer polishes! Alot of other bloggers used 3 coats and it looked fine but idk I used 4 and still VNL!
It is a very pretty light milky-ish baby pink color with what looks like blue and green mirco shimmer/glassflecks in it!
I think I will stamp over this and I will like it more..
Okay gotta go make dinner! <3 lol

A little note to my followers!

I laugh and cringe at the same time when I see these older pictures lol!
No idea what I was thinking!! Look at those awkward bottles holds, lack of cleanup and no cropping..
It's fun to see progress though!

I love you all!

Layering Fun with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black & Cult Nails Clairvoyant

Hey guys! I hope you all had a awesome Thanksgiving!
Here is a awesome Clairvoyant layering combo that is oh so amazing!

First though is my Base color Zoya-Codie!
I used 3 coats because with 2 there was a tiny bit of patchy-ness at the top of my nails.

Then I added Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black! I kind of used 2 coats, I did one coat and while it was still wet added a bit know? Not sure if that counts as two or one thick coat or what not lol!

& Now for the best part! I layered Cult Nails Clairvoyant over that combo and holy frak!

^^^(Click me, click me! I'm beautiful!!!) :( Never mind for some reason it won't let you click it :(
How do I fix that?

These pictures were taken in a lightbox with my desklamp.
(daylight light bulb, unfortunately there isn't much sun here today!)
My hubby had told me how epic my nails look like 10 times and he normally doesn't care at all haha.
For that to happen trust me they have to be amazingly awesome :)
I already ordered a spare last night!

<3 you guys! Have a awesome day!!

My Thanksgiving Mani! Pumpkin Pie & Turkey Included!

Happy Early Turkey Day! And I am saying early because I know I won't be able to wait to post this on Thanksgiving!!

But I want all of you guys, anybody who comes to this post to leave me a comment saying something you are Thankful for! I would love to hear what you all love and appreciate from your life!

What will you be doing? Spending time with family? I'm feeling very lazy and I don't want to cook yet so we are going to Cracker Barrel and then I am going to cook a week late lol. Just not in the mood lately!

As for my Mani I hope you all like it, it isn't perfect and frankly I was pretty disappointed with it at first but it has really grown on me. I'm too hard on myself and I know it. It's smudged and etc but I think it is pretty darn cute and I hope you do also!

I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful day!

Colors Used-A lot! lol Okay Seriously!
First off I started with a coat of Deborah Lippmann's Naked on all my fingers
I used a coat of Whitecap, then one coat of Cnd-Gold Sparkle on my middle & ring Finger.
Then Cnd Gold Sparkle over the polka dots to add more to it.

Red-Opi-Off with Her Red
Pumpkin Pie color-Barielle Aura Angora mized with Opi-He's My Boo

Cult Nails Super Power Collection Swatches! Clairvoyant/Unicorn Puke!

Hey guys!! Super excited post for you today! Yesterday I got my Pre-ordered Cult Nails Super Powers Collection in the mail! /cheer
Now this was supposed to go up WAY earlier but my camera or SD card majorly FAILED again!
I had swatched the entire collection and none of it was on the card or my camera, I seriously wanted to cry.
But I pulled up my big girl panties are started over lol

Also since this was supposed to be posted yesterday I had my Thanksgiving mani scheduled for today also SO make sure to come back check it out, it is super adorable!

You can purchase this Collection from Cult Nails HERE for $40.00

Here is Power Thief, it needed three coats for me, just barely but there was a little bit of patchy sheerness with two. I love this polish! I see myself wearing it a ton in the future! It makes me think of Chocolate Milk!
It glided on effortlessly and the formula was great imo!

Here is Power Thief with a coat of Clairvoyant aka Unicorn Puke over it!

Here is Mind Control. The formula on this is very thin, and the first coat doesn't go on that evenly, or it didn't for me but the second and third went on perfectly. Just 3 Very thin coats and it dried fast, the glitter wasn't a pain to remove either!
I know the second picture is blurry but I wanted you to see how sparkly it is!
 Mind Control with one coat of Clairvoyant on top!

 This is Time Traveler, the only one that I had a bit of application issues with..not horrible by any means but it is just really thick and I might add a drop or two of thinner so it applies a little easier :) But It is SO close to being a one coater, barely needed a second!
 *Tip* though Double up on basecoat, this is a stainer! You can see it stained me just from swatching it! Gorgeous color, makes me think of Wonder Woman! It's a bit more Vibrant, my camera had issues with it.

Time Traveler with one coat of Clairvoyant.
And here is the holy grail itself, Clairvoyant, Unicorn Puke, pure awesomesauce whatever you want to call it-it is amazing!!

This is 4-5 coats lol Definitely a Layering polish, but I wanted you to see it on it's own too!

Hope you guys liked the swatches! I had to do them twice but it was worth it!
Check back in a few days for a upcoming Clairvoyant mani! I found an AMAZING layering combo!!

OPI Ds Glamour! /drool Picture Heavy

Hey guys! Okay so i know this post has a kind of ridiculous amount of photos but I have SUCH a hard time narrowing them down! Especially with a holo polish! This is four coats of OPI Ds Glamour-You DO NOT need 4 coats, but I added the extra one because my pointer nail is peel-y and you could tell lol

I hope you all enjoy! I love this polish so much! <3 There was finally enough sun to do a holo so I went for it!
I think it was luck from Jen at :) She tweeted about the weather and I replied about how I wish it would be sunny so I could post a holo and she said she would cross her fingers for me and bam, there is sun! :D She is just all kinds of awesome! (lol I swear I'm not a creepy stalker :P)

Here are two pictures inside with a lamp also, the rest were taken outside in the sun!

Keep a eye out for something special coming up in the very near future!
