Kiko Anise

Hello, everyone! Today, I have another polish from Kiko to share with you!

Two coats of Kiko Anise.

So textured...

and bumpy.

Anise by Kiko is a pastel baby blue polish with dark blue sprinkles & a textured finish.
This polish is a little too textured in my opinion; it being overly textured makes it difficult to apply.
I sort of wanted to like this polish because it's my favorite color (blue), and it does look kind of cool, but the formula is a huge turnoff for me.
If I had to give this polish a rating out of five stars, I'd give 2 out of 5.
It looks interesting, but the formula is crappy.

Thanks for reading! Xoxo

Kiko Pink Flambé

Hello, everyone! Today I have a swatch of another Kiko polish to share with you!

Three coats of Kiko Pink Flambé without topcoat...

and with topcoat!

Kiko Pink Flambé is a deep pink with beautiful metallic shimmer.
I ended up liking this polish a lot more than I thought I would!
Pink nail polishes usually aren't my thing, but this one is beautiful!
Pictures really aren't doing the metallic shimmer justice; It's beautiful.
I would have to say I do prefer it without topcoat versus with.
Tell me, do you prefer it with, or without topcoat? Let me know in the comment section below!

Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth

Hi, guys! Today I have the final textured polish from the Sinful Colors Spring 2016 Live In Color Land collection, to show you.

Three coats of Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth.

I like it.

A bit more sheer than I would have thought...

Sweet Tooth by Sinful Colors is a hot pink with coral undertones and pink iridescent micro glitter in a textured finish.
I really like this polish; I think it's very vivid and happy looking.
Overall, this polish is great, but the formula was a bit disappointing.
As I mentioned above, it needed three coats, which isn't too bad, but even after three coats, you could see the nail line a little.
Out of all the other textured polishes from the collection, this one is probably my least favorite; but don't get me wrong, I really like it, but it's just not the best one in my opinion.

My favorite textured polishes from the collection:


Three coats of Sugar High.


Three coats of Sweeten The Teal.


Two coats of Sureally Sweet.


Three coats of Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth.

So tell me, which ones are your favorite, and in what order?
As you can see from above, my most favorite was Sugar High!
Yeah, it required three coats just like Sweet Tooth, but at least it was fully opaque!
Also, blue is my favorite color so it's not surprising it's my favorite. ^_^

OPI My Pal Joey

Hi, everyone! Today I have swatches of a beautiful blue cream polish to share with you.

Two coats of OPI My Pal Joey

Reminds me of the old Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, a bit...

Lovely blue.

My Pal Joey by OPI is a primary blue cream with a really nice formula.
It applied very nicely and was fully opaque in two coats.
I love primary blue creams like this! I honestly don't know what else to say about it, haha.
I guess I'll end the post here!

Thanks for reading!! Xoxo

Abstract 4th Of July Nails

Hello, everyone! Happy 4th July to all of my fellow Americans.
Today I have the nail art that I wore for today!

Splatter nail art with water marble accent fingers. ♥

A shot with the thumb included!!
A shot of the right hand with the thumb included!? WHAT!? Lol.

I thought I'd show you the brush I used for the splatter effect... Cool right?

For the splatter nails, I used Zoya Aspen for the base; Orly Star Spangled, Zoya Dream and the super hard, powder brush (pictured above) to create the splatter effect.
As for the water marble nails, I used Zoya Aspen (the base of these nails, too), Rimmel London Stiletto Red, Sinful Shine Wisp, & Zoya Sailor.
After I finished the water marble, I felt like it needed something more, so I topped it off with some of Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond.
Even after that, I still felt like the nails were lacking something... So I added some rhinestones!
Then I was satisfied, haha.
I really enjoyed creating these!
