Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! Who else is excited for another Swatch Sunday post?
I’ve been digging through my stash lately for the most perfect holiday-worthy polish. I bought a few fun Color Club polishes last year at Winners, after Christmas, but haven’t really had a chance to wear them. I decided to pull one of those shades — Color Club Matte About You — & it might be the perfect jewel toned teal for the holidays. I’m
2 coats, no top coat.
The formula on this shade is pretty thick, but still applied fairly easily. There is a really nice shimmer, the matte finish is very nice. It also dried down fairly quickly — not too quick that it was impossible to apply the polish evenly, but quick enough you don’t have to wait around forever for it to dry.
Seriously, how pretty is this polish!?
You can see from the macro shot how lovely the metallic finish is. Couldn’t you just imagine a flakie topper over this shade? It would be so gorgeous! I also think it would be absolutely fabulous as a base for some sweater/snowflake stamping.
What do you think about the beauty of this polish? I did find a listing for it on NailPolishCanada.com, so it doesn’t seem like an impossible to find shade.
Let me know your thoughts down below on your opinions on this polish, & what polishes you look forward to wearing for the holidays? I’m always looking to add more to my Christmas list for Santa!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Half way through the week already — can you believe it?! We’re also already on our second prompt for GlamNailsChallengeOctober… & my second Halloween design of the season.
Today’s prompt: Spider. 🕷🕸
Which, anyone who knows me, knows is one of my least favourite things in the whole wide world. But for nail art, I guess I can do it. So I decided, why not do some holo-ween spiders! Because holo makes everything better!
How much fun are these? Again, spiders are not my favourite thing. In fact, I’ve been known to run screaming away from a spider, usually in tears. But these holo spiders turned out pretty cute, so I don’t mind wearing them on my nails.
October is the one month a year where spiders on my nails are okay, haha.
I really, really wanted to rock some holographic nails for this look. I thought this holographic orange-y colour was perfect as the base for this nail art. Plus we’ve had some beautiful sunny days the last few days, which were just calling for some holo.
What do you think about this nail art look? Are you currently rocking any Halloween designs? What is your favourite Halloween nail art design to do? Let me know in the comments below!
It’s another start to the week (& almost another month!) so that means another edition of Swatch Sunday! We’ve been having some beautiful sunny weather, so I was feeling something bright & colourful. I decided to go through my stash & settled on an oldie: Color Club Evolution.
2 coats, no top coat
As you can see, like so many of my Color Club polishes, I scored this beauty on clearance at my local Lawton’s. According to my Google research, Evolution was originally released as part of their Spring 2013 Kaleidoscope collection.
For my swatches, I only needed 2 coats of polish for full opacity. I loved how easily the polish applied on the nail — it also dried down very smoothly, even without top coat, which I always appreciate.
I’m really, really loving this shade. It’s very vibrant, which is perfect for this beginning of Summer time. I do love a good blue polish, & I feel like I’ve been wearing it a lot lately. It’s nice because it brightens things up quite a bit. It reminds me a bit of Essie In The Cab-ana, which has always been a favourite of mine. It’s not quite a dupe, I don’t think, but it’s a nice alternative.
I found this shade on nailpolishcanada.com for sale (& at a discounted price) so if you need this shade in your life that’s always an option. I’m not sure if it’s in Color Club’s regular rotation, so it might be harder to find in store.
What do you think about Color Club Evolution? Would you wear this bright vibrant blue? Let me know what you think down in the comments below!
The sun is shining, the weather is warm, & I got to wear a dress yesterday. That’s about all the good from this week, & exactly what I’m going to concentrate on. & you know what else warm sunny days mean? More holo! Because there is nothing better than sunshine & holo.
I am absolutely smitten with how this look turned out. Yes, I’m a bit holo obsessed, but I a world full of chaos & sadness, we need a little sparkle every once in a while. This look was also super, super easy to do which I’ve been appreciating more & more lately. A few quick but steady stripes of polish & you’re in business! Looks way more complicated than it truly is.
What do you think about my holo stripes? Would you wear a look like this? What holo polishes would you combine? Let me know in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all having a lovely, safe start to your week. Can you believe we’re almost half way through April? I can’t believe how quickly this month is going. & so far, we’ve more or less had beautiful weather.
I’ll take it!
& today I’m sharing another floral look with you! I did this look the other week after snapping off my middle finger at work. It hurt, especially because they’ve completely transformed & were getting so long! So I thought some (more) floral was in order to cheer myself up.
First off, I love, love, LOVE this Color Club shade. It was another one of those amazing Winners (or, possibly Marshall’s) find. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with these mood (thermal) changing polishes since my late 2009 Claire’s days when I had to buy all of them! The shift on this shade is subtle, but either way the colour is GORGEOUS & I’m kind of obsessed. Very perfect for Summer.
Second, this floral turned out so pretty. Nothing like a little bit of girlie nail art to cheer yourself up after a bad break. I was going for a bit of a cartoon-y floral, & I think I achieved what I was trying to do!
What do you think about this floral on my new shorties? how do you cope with a bad, bad break? Let me know in the comments below!
