Daphine Polish Review-Poinsettia & Skating

bottle-shots-daphine-polish

*Press Sample*

Hey guys, today I also have an indie polish review/swatch for you today. I was sent these two shades from the Daphine Polish Christmas collection. You can view that here on her Etsy shop.

I have Poinsettia and Skating to share today.

Poinsettia was definitely one I would not have chosen for myself as I’m not a fan of reds, but swatching it, I had a very different opinion on it! I came to like it very much!

Skating is very much so what I would have chosen for myself, I love glitters and the dimension of this one is really pretty. It’s a perfect polish to layer over any color you can imagine!

The first polish to show is Poinsettia, a reddish brick-orange creme with a slight holographic tint to it. It is much more pretty on the nail than in the bottle! I can did two coats for this.

The next one I swatched is Skating, a gorgeous blue glitter polish. It has some diamond shaped holo glitter, multi-sized and colored blue glitter with a gold iridescent base. There’s so many possibilities to layer this over things! For this swatch I used the sponge method, which you can view that here.

12 Days of Christmas Nail art challenge- Day 20 & Day 23

Good Morning ladies & maybe gents! I felt like doing my nails so I do some nail art on my left hand, my nails are finally starting to seem like they want to grow! (They have kept breaking anytime they got to cm of growth.) Any way I decided to do Christmas tree freestyle for today’s challenge and I did the last challenge which was presents.

For today’s challenge was christmas tree freestyle, so I pulled out my glitter! First I made little tree’s using WNW Fast Dry polish in Sagreena The Teenage witch (you can see it swatched here.) I also used glitter from glitterunique.com in Christmas Tree Mix! While Sagreena was still wet I just sprinkled the glitter onto the wet polish, conveniently a star feel perfectly into place at the top of the tree so I decided to put the stars in the glitter mix at the tops of the trees!

Missing from the last 3 days is the Presents mani, which I made out of 3 shades of polish, red, green and silver. The silver and red is ELF’s Red-y Or Not and Liquid Metal, the green is also Sagreena The Teenage Witch.  This mani was very easy, I just used a striper nail art polish to do almost all of this, I also used a dotting tool to do the dots!

I know I’ve been bad at keeping up! sorry, but hope you guys liked these!!


Fresh Paint nail polish in Sugar Crush

Hey guys! I purchased some stuff a couple days ago at my local beauty supply and Five Below and usually on my blog I will try to post things in the order that I buy them but I just really couldn’t wait! I swatched this yesterday so sorry if it looks rough, but it is absolutely GORGEOUS. I swatched it over my basic black nail polish. (Wet N Wild’s Wild Shine polish in Black Creme) I knew this shade would be really pretty but man it exceeded my expectations ! Not only is this polish gorgeous, it is also VERY affordable! I purchased it at my Five Below store, which if I’m correct is an East Coast chain store. They have polishes there for $2 each OR 3/$5. I purchased more Funky Fingers polishes so expect those pictures next week! I could’t stop taking pictures of this, so kind of pic heavy!

NOTD: All Things Christmas nail art!

For today’s NOTD my left hand has made a resurface! It’s still short :c but I’ve started Biotin and I am hoping I get more growth. Since I’m right handed I decided to do some nail art on my left hand and thus came up with this mani inspired by some of the things that are all about Christmas and my #12DOCChallenge Wreath challenge. If you have any questions about how to do any part of my mani let me know!!

#12DOCchallenge- 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge- Day 10- Wreath

Good Afternoon! Today’s nail art challenge is wreaths and it wasn’t too bad of a challenge except my little bows could have been better. I could have done little ornaments but my entire style regardless of what category it is, is very simple so I opted for just wreaths and bows. I did the wreath part with Sinful Shine in Amazonian using a small dotting tool. The gold is Essie’s Good As Good. Hope you guys liked it and my new blog layout. I always change it I know!! -XOXO

#12DOCchallenge 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge- Dec. 8- Lights

Good Afternoon, this challenge was hardly than I thought! I’m left handed and for some reason my left hand’s nails wont grow so I’ve been using my right hand to swatch. WELL that makes it quite harder to do nail art. I ended up having to do something relatively simple. I used a nail art pen to draw the little bulbs. The challenges coming up will definitely be harder! Wish me luck! -XOXO
