L’oreal Too Dimensional?

Morning lovelies!I don’t have much to say beyond, this is so gorgeous! *drools over the pretty glitter* This is three coats of L’oreal Too Dimensional, it’s a lavender base with a strong gold shimmer and silver micro hexes. It dries to a subtle texture finish, […]

#PolishMountain Glitter Addition! 160+ Coats

It kinda looks like a wave right? Morning all!Yeah, I did it. The moment Christine published that video, friends were tagging me in it left and right, so I decided I should put my stash to work and beat her 116 coat count. And also […]

L’oreal Hidden Gems

Morning all~

I was making a polish run at Walgreens to see if they had any of the new Wet n Wild Nail Tints yet, and I found this lovely L’oreal on clearance for 3.98, so she had to come home with me. This is L’oreal Hidden Gems, it’s a deep indigo with sapphire and silver mini hex glitter, and it dries to a textured finish. This is three coats, and it has an awesome wear time, but textured polishes always tend to wear well.

What’s up buttercup? + some snapshots of the past week

Milk & Cookie Cravings

Shimmering Creme Floral

Morning all!

I’ve decided to start trying bolder color combos, I feel like my colors schemes have been pretty blah lately, so today I put together two radically different shades, and I think it turned out gorgeous!

I have the neon pink Salon Perfect Oh Snap! and a teal shimmer; Wet n Wild Wild Shine Caribbean Frost. I stamped with BC-08 and finished it off with Wet n Wild Shiny Top Coat.
