Happy October, beauties!
First, I would like to thank those of you who comment regularly on this blog. You have no idea how much it means to know that my readers are enjoying my craft and are able to follow along during my blogging endeavors. I put a lot of time and effort in this blog and I'm so grateful to receive positive feedback and continued support. So, just a quick, but heartfelt thank you! xx
I cannot believe how fast this year has gone and how 2013 is just around the corner! Anyway, from the title you all can tell this is going to be a pretty long and picture heavy post.
With that said, I have divided it in three categories, Fall, Pretty Little Liars, and Misc. There's tons to cover, 24 nail polishes to be exact, so let's jump right into it! ;)
First up, Purple People Eater. A clear base packed with black glitter, small orange and purple hexes, medium green hexes, and small yellow/purple duochrome squares. This applied nicely in one coat. Halloween in a bottle, yes please!
Rake, Jump, Crunch is a clear base packed with brown glitter, small gold and brown hexes, and medium gold hexes. This was inspired by Missi's memory of the leaf piles she would rake up, crunch, and jump as a child, cute story behind the name! This was one coat.
Honestly Feels a lot Like Mean has a clear base packed with brown glitter, small gold and pink hexes, medium pink hexes, and large gold hexes. I'm a huge fan of brown and pink combinations, so it's no surprise that this was my favorite from her Fall collection. This was one easy coat with excellent glitter distribution.
Hey! I just met you and this is crazy, but here's my number so, Fall Me Maybe LOL, how cute is that?! It's a clear base packed with brown glitter, and small red, orange, and gold hexes. Definitely Fall in a bottle! This was one generous coat.
Warm Fuzzies is a brown scattered holo. Application was smooth and opaque in one thick coat.
Pretty Little Liars
Boy, am I excited to show you all these babies! This was probably my favorite section from this post as there are stunning and unique combinations.
Got a secret, can you keep it? I'm a HUGE Pretty Little Liar fan, but seriously, we'll be grandma's/grandpa's by the time they figure out who the A Team is! LOL! ;)
Emily is a soft blue base packed with periwinkle, white, and avocado glitters. This was my favorite from the four colors and I'm currently rockin' this as my mani. It's opaque in two coats and dried quite fast. Like the character, this polish is a beauty!
Hana - I love her sassy attitude and Caleb, in a fine piece of...... what?! LOL! He's a cutie! ;) This has a soft lavender base and is packed with magenta, white, and periwinkle glitters. Like Emily, this was opaque in one coat and dried pretty fast in between coats. This was my second favorite!
Spencer - she's a doll and between her and Hanna, in my opinion, they definitely have the best style! It's a tinted red jelly base packed with holo micro shimmers, red, black, and white glitters and small red hexes. This was two coats with some VNL, but I suppose an additional coat would meet its opacity.
Aria - honestly, she's my least favorite and her relationship with Mr. Fitz is bleh -_- LOL! This polish, however; I dig! It's a pinky, purple duochrome. This was one coat over CG Liquid Leather.
Doppelganger - I'm not sure if this was inspired by The Vampire Diaries, (which I absolutely love) but the term fits with the show, so I added it in the category under shows. It's a grey meets taupe base packed with pink glitters, micro holo pink hexes, small matte pink hexes, medium matte silver hexes, and large matte silver hexes. Another beautiful combination that applies like a dream. This was two coats with some VNL.
Rock, Papers, Scissors, Lizard, Spock was inspired by the show, The Big Bang Theory. It's a tinted light blue base packed with white glitter, small silver, white, baby blue and pistachio hexes, and small baby blue and pistachio squares. This applied nicely in one coat.
Sparkles Like Edward - I seriously was in awe during application of this polish, I mean, it's gorgeous! This has a soft white base with pinky gold shimmers, and holo pink gold, teal, and purple micro hexes. This was perfect in two coats. For some reason, this reminds me of cupcakes and babies?! LOL, go figure! ;)
You can't join Mathletes, it's Social Suicide. If you do not know where that line is from, you must be living under a rock! LOL! ;) This was inspired by the famous movie, Mean Girls. I've seen this movie a gazillion times, but still laugh as if it's the first time I've seen it! It's a cleat base packed with black and white glitters and medium/large black and white hexes. The image below was done in one coat. You go, Glen Coco! ;)
50 Shades was inspired by, well, the book Fifty Shades of Grey. It's a tinted grey jelly base and is packed with tons of micro shimmers, black glitters, small/medium holo hexes, large silver hexes, and black and white shreds. This was two coats with a slight VNL. Have you read the book?!
Inner Goddess is another polish from the Fifty Shades of Grey inspired collection. OH-EM-GEE was what I exclaimed during application! It's a clear base packed with iridescent shimmers that shifts from purple/orange/pink in certain angles and iridescent hexes and squares. This was one coat over CG Liquid Leather. I honestly did not want to remove this polish, but I still the others to swatch! -_- LOL!
Last, but certainly not least, the Misc. babies!
Black & Gold is part of the Team Spirit Collection. It's a black jelly base packed with ultra fine holo shimmers and small gold holo hexes. It looks brown because of the base I used underneath, but if you refer to the bottle, you can tell it's black. This was one coat.
Cardinal & White is another polish from the Team Spirit collection. It's a clear base packed with red glitter, and medium red and white hexes. I'm not sure what possessed me to use an orange base, but I'm definitely diggin' the combo! This was one generous coat.
Light it Up Blue is a beautiful polish inspired by Autism Speaks and World Autism Day. This is a sheer, blue jelly base packed with ultra fine shimmers, micro holo and blue glitters, and large matte white hexes. Did I forget to mention that it glows in the dark?! Woop! Woop!
Here's a pathetic shot of the glow in the dark feature. I could not capture it's true beauty for the life of me!
-_- Nonetheless, it's a true beauty!
Fight Like a Girl was inspired by an amazingly beautiful and strong woman. I believe this is part of a Cancer awareness collection she has along with the next polish below. It's a clear base packed with holo glitters, micro black and holo hexes and small holo aqua and magenta hexes. I love the color combo on this as well and it applied evenly in one coat.
F*ck Cancer is a clear base packed with holo glitters, micro holo pink hexes, and small pink and hot pink hexes. This also applied nicely in one coat.
To the Moon and Back is a silvery, blue base packed with ultra fine holo shimmers, black and white glitters, and holo stars and moons. Another great polish with the perfect name to match! This was two easy coats.
Space Cadet is a clear base packed with holo glitters and micro, small, and medium holo hexes. This wasn't the most unique polish from the 24, but nonetheless, it's a beauty and applied effortlessly in one coat.
Roswell is a bluish/green and gold duochrome. I absolutely love this color and it applies beautifully in two coats.
Ahhh, last but, not least, Un-teal We Meet Again. It's a clear base with holo and aqua glitters, micro silver and holo aqua hexes and small aqua hexes. I absolutely adore this layered over Roswell, it's the perfect combination! This was one generous coat!
