Hey nubbins, long time no see

Morning all!This is my first mani after the big chop, it feels so strange having short nails, I haven’t had them this short in over a year! It’s kinda nice to start fresh again, I’m constantly being asked how I got them so long, so I […]

Hello Lovelies! I swear the minute I reached for a holo polish, the sun went behind a cloud. It had been clear and sunny as can be all day, and then the minute I went out to take pictures a pack of clouds rolled in.So […]


Hello Lovelies! I haven’t done anything with my holographics in ages, so I pulled out on of my untrieds, Color Club Beyond. Beyond is a charcoal grey linear holographic, it’s opaque in almost one coat, and it stamps too!I stamped with Beyond on my ring […]

Sinful Colors Cinderella and Revlon Heavenly Swatches

Hello Lovelies! I recently got a couple new Sinful Colors polishes, and Cinderella was one of them! Sinful Colors Cinderella is a pastel sky blue creme with subtle pink shimmery finish. I had to use almost four coats for full opacity, and it still looked […]

Starrily Poisoned Apple Swatches

Hello Lovelies! I have another swatch from the depths of my picture files from back when I still had long nails! This is Starrily Poisoned Apple, it’s a holographic deep raspberry pink, in the shade you can see little gold flecks, but they’re drowned out […]
