Splat No Bleach Color Designed for Brunettes

Hello Lovelies! I’ve been chasing the perfect dark purple hair dye for about a year now. After a couple hits and misses I’d finally settled on using Schwarzkopf Ultime in Amethyst Black, I’ve used that shade three or four times now.  A couple days ago an […]

Thermal Fun

Morning all!I’d forgotten how fun thermal polishes are, I haven’t played around with one since December!This is from the same line polishes from BPS, this is #8 from Blue Sky.It’s a bright cotton candy pink while warm, and then blackened chestnut brown when cold. Pop […]

Pastel Matte Florals

Morning all!I was in a pastel matte mood, used the polishes nearest to hand, and it didn’t end up looking too shabby! I just now noticed I have some cat hairs stuck to the edge of my nail, hopefully the pretty glitter outshines them, haha. […]

Hearts & Glass Perfect Kiss

Morning all!I found this polish on clearance at Grocery Outlet, the brand is called Hearts & Glass, I love that the bottle is actually heart shaped! This shade is named Perfect Kiss, the finish reminds me of A-England Briar Rose. I still haven’t gotten around […]

Molten Blueberries

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, […]

Stray cat strut

Morning all!I haven’t done any double stamping in ages, and Born Pretty plate BP-59 has a couple different insanely cute cats that I needed on my nails all at once, so first I stamped the tinier cat print in black, then I added a layer […]

Raindrops keep falling on my head

Morning all!I’ve pulled my nail vinyls from the deep depths of my polish hoard once again, these are from the webshop Zanthara!These started off with a base of OPI French Quarter For Your Thoughts, then after applying the vinyls I went in with Wet n Wild Garnet […]

Cloudy Violet Fractals

Morning!I felt like using a “fun” polish, so I brought out a thermal from BPS, but it was too cold to make the shift from purple to blue, so it ended up looking a ‘lil drab. I only wore these for two days, so I never […]
