Ahoy! A cloud mani!

This is new yellow polish. NYC Lexington Yellow is streaky and takes 2 thick coats or 3 thin to be opaque. I'm not that patient. It's such a cute color tho! Not too mustard, not too bright, not too pastel.
China Glaze Ahoy takes as many coats. BOO! But it's so so pretty!! It's like a perfect berry rich color that isn't too dark, with this inner flakey gold shimmer that is mesmerizing.
Yes, I stare at my nails that much. :)

Purple and lime green and holo OH MY!

Today I wanted to experiment layering glittery top coats.  IMHO, Pure Ice brand has some fantastic top coats that can alter the color of the base polish and for CHEAP!!  This is only a fraction of the colors I tried today, but they are the final 4 that I quit with.
From left to right:
Pure Ice Heart Breaker - final top coat over everything because you can never have too much glitter!
Pure Ice Wild Thing - should be named Ogre Pee...needs 2 coats.
Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple - dries a little slow but it's a party in a bottle!
Kleancolor Fairy Lover - very dark with dark silver shimmer...1 coat opacity!
See?!  Party!!
The purple jelly has very little color, so all you really see is the firey glitter colors.  I put it over the pee green polish as well and you'd never know there is purple jelly on top.  Thank you to my sister from another mother for giving it to me!!  ;)
Oh yea, P.S....I've polished and re-polished so many times today I didn't bother to clean up the last time.  :)  Yes I'm that lazy.
And one more.  Because I can.  :)
Yesterday I tried painting a little skull on my thumbnail.  You can see her peeking up there.  That will be a separate post.

Metallic swirls over blue glitter

In geeky news, I'm blogging from my phone thanks to the free Blogger app. Since 99% of my pictures are taken on my phone I hope this will help me post more frequently.
Today I'm wearing Laugh My Art Off by Finger Paints, stamped with Metallic 860 by Revlon Top Speed. This silver has become my new favorite! And now that I know it will stamp...happy dance!!
Now to hit publish and see how this app works out. :)
