SWATCH SUNDAY — Cadillacquer Leilani (Thermal)

•pr sample/gifted•

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week — 2022 hasn’t quite been my friend. I came down with the flu right before the new year, & even almost 2 weeks later I’m still just starting to feel like myself again. Which means, I need to get started with some fun January nails.

This week for Swatch Sunday, I have another gifted polish care of NailStuff.ca to share: Cadillacquer Leilani.

2 coats + top coat

Cadillaquer Leilani is a beautiful jelly blue thermal, which is packed full of multisized glitters, & shifty flakies. In it’s cool state, it is the funky blue colour you see in the bottle, but when your hands are warm (or when you dunk them in some nice hot water) the polish shifts to a semi sheer golden white colour.

The formula itself is quite easy to work with — not too gloopy or runny, which is good when you’re working with a shade which needs more coats. I went with two coats of polish, but I definitely could have applied another to hide the bit of sheerness it had while hot.

Below, you can see it in its “warm” state, after I dunked it in some hot water, as well as when my fingers started shifting back.

I’m always a sucker for thermal shades, & the dramatic colour difference between the hot & cold state of this one is really fun. As I’ve written before, I’ve been a sucker for thermal nail polish since my Claire’s “Mood” nail polish days, so it makes me so happy to still be able to play around with these shifty shades, even after all these years.

If you’re looking to add this shade to your collection, you can find it (& other Cadillacquer shades) for purchase via NailStuff.ca.

Glam Nails Challenge October — Jack-O-Lantern 🎃

Good morning lovelies and happy Monday! I

’m so excited for today’s look for Glam Nails Challenge October! We’re getting closer to Halloween, & I’m enjoying these Halloween looks more & more. The next prompt for this month is Jack-o-Lantern, & I’m so happy with how this design turned out!

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Cadillaquer Enchanted Woodland (NailStuff.ca exclusive!)
  • China Glaze Spice To Meet You
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Fiery Island
  • Essence Wake Up
  • Starrily Vantablack
  • Sinful Colors Essen-chills Smoky Palo Santo
  • China Glaze The Snuggle Is Real
  • Sally Hansen I ❤️ Nail Art pen in green
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush

So originally I had planned on using some pumpkin Nail art stickers for this design. Unfortunately the stickers did not want to stick to my nails so I ended up going with a design. & honestly, I definitely think that was the right decision — it looks so much cuter!

I was actually nervous to attempt these little pumpkin faces, because smaller details can sometimes be hit or miss for me, but oh man I just love how they turned out! The little pumpkin faces are actually the cutest!

I also was super excited to wear Enchanted Woodland again! I haven’t worn it for over a year, & it’s a perfect base for this Halloween design. Gives off the right amount of spookiness.

What do you think of this Halloween design — do you like these not so spooky jack-o-lanterns? 🎃 would you wear this design? Let me know down in the comments below!
