Kleancolor Metallic pink

 Kleancolor Metallic Pink 158 is awesome!  For starters, it's a one-coater.  I have not taken it off yet, so it may stain my nails horribly but I don't care.  My nails are never nekkid anyway.  :)
It's a bright, hot pink!! (see ring finger) Not a meek color.  Would be a great toe color.

I read many reviews about the stinkiness of Kleancolor polish.  My opinion?  Yes, it stinks.  It's nail polish!  It has a different smell than other polishes...but they ALL stink.  You don't see Glade offering a Harvest Spice & Orange Nail Polish scent.  :)
 Here is Pink Holo 134 over all but the ring finger.  Really pretty rainbow sparkly glitters.  Slightly gritty, but a fast dry  top coat fixed the texture issue.
Speaking of drying...the metallics dry quickly.  The holos and glitters are slow, and take forever to become "dent" resistant. 
 This mani is crazy bright & vibrant.  I wish I were a better photographer!
Here is Pinky Moon 30.  It takes some digging and luck to get a crescent, but it is worth it.  Super cute!

Catherine Arley Holo 676

It's an insanely sunny day here in Oklahoma.  Perfect for showing you my silver holographic nubbies!!
This is 3 coats on all fingers, 2 coats on my thumbs.  Next time I will try a base coat of white or gray.

Catherine Arley holographic polish swatches

February 2nd I ordered Catherine Arley polishes from  I learned about the polish and the vender from Emerald Sparkled and DROOLED over the swatches at Fashion Polish.  (seriously, grab a tissue)

The customer service at BeautyCosmetic.Biz was awesome.  I payed via Paypal, and my polishes arrived today (just a little over 1 month later) perfectly in tact.  I think that's an appropriate wait time for a shipment to make the long trek, through customs, from Bulgaria to Oklahoma, USA.  I had to sign for the USPS delivery, so I'm glad I was home.

BeautyCosmetic.Biz was out of a few colors I had hoped to buy, but I still managed to get 8 colors!!  Here are the first 4:
#666 - 667 - 668 - 672
This is 2 coats.  I was surprised how sheer and light they were, but 2 coats made perfect coverage.  No top coat in these pics.  I could hardly wait until they were DRY to take pics...forget waiting on a top coat!

In indirect light they look like normal, pretty colors.  In direct light they come to life like sparkly rainbow parties!!  I wish I was able to capture how gorgeous they are in the pics.

#672 - 668 - 667 - 666

PCFC Pastel Patchwork

These spring challenges have shown me that I don't own many pastels.  But no biggie.  I had 3, and was planning some time consuming multicolor nails.  Then Sophia (the baby) said, Oh no you aren't!!  So I went with plan B......not so much patchwork...they make me think more quilt looking.  KISS.  One base stamping color.
