Happy Halloween!! Bootiful Wet N Wild Purple Potion

Hello All,
Happy Halloween! Sorry no Blue Monday because I found this one last lacquer that I wanted to show for you Halloween but, if I am being honest I would wear this year round!
I found another Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers lacquer that I had not seen before: Purple Potion. It is a lovely black base polish with brite purple glitter! It is so fun! I really didn't think that the glitter would be bright enough to show up with the black base but it does. It really has a lot of purple glitter,

I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. Isn't it gorgeous? Wouldn't you wear this year round?

One last thing: I bought these cute See's Candy pumpkins for my Mom for Halloween. Aren't they cute?

Halloween Cupcake!

Hi All,
I just had to share the coolest cupcake I got from a Bestie. It is so cute and talk about delish!!!!!!!!!
It is just like eating a piece of wedding cake but in a cupcake!
It was a fluffy moist vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream, then it was dipped in a rich dark chocolate and then dipped in green and black(chocolate) sprinkles/jimmies that makes it look like dirt. After all of that they put on a huge thick yummy white chocolate skull decorated with red icing! 


Sorry on the above picture, I smashed it a little bit when I took it out of the box. It was so rich it took me 2 days to eat it! Have you had a cupcake treat for Halloween?

Halloween - Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers

Hi All,
Halloween is in a few days so I thought I better get my Halloween on and be festive!

I have Wet N Wild’s Fantasy Makers Creepy Pumpkin and Night Glow (glow in dark). They are 2 more lacquers in the tombstone bottles, Black Magic was the last one I posted.
First up is the Creepy Pumpkin which is a sheer lacquer/jelly. It is a bright orange with gold and orange shimmer.
It’s Bootiful:

It's really shiny and I like it. It's a lot of fun for $2. I am wearing only 2 coats of Creepy Pumpkin and 2 coats of Night Glow (Glow In Dark), No top coat! Night Glow did not change the color of Creepy Pumpkin. Both went on smooth and dried very quickly. I have been wearing it for 4 days and still no chips! I did take one picture of the night glow:

It is so cool! What lacquer will you be wearing on Halloween?

No More Waity, Katie - Butter London

Hi All,
I have another Butter London Lacquer today. When I selected this one, I just went by the color. After I bought it and got it home, I looked at the name. Of course it’s named for Kate Middleton after she got engaged to Prince William and it’s a limited edition but, I saw a few bottles of it a couple of days ago at a store so they are still out there.
This one is a very light lilac almost gray base with bright lilac glitter. Nice!

Here it is:

I do have to admit that it is a very royal lacquer and what’s more royal then purple! I am wearing 2 coats and a top coat. It went on nicely and dried really quickly but, after wearing it for 2 days a couple nails chipped on the tips. Do you think this is a royal lacquer?

Blue Monday - Candy Mani

This could be a better Blue Monday for me! This is my first Candy Mani and I am not happy with the results but, I’m going to post it anyway and maybe you can share your tips with me! Please!

If you don’t know what a candy mani is, it is a manicure with 3 layered lacquers, plus base coat and top coat, 5 total to make a candy mani.
The secret is that 2 lacquers have to be close in color and 1 out of the 2 has to be a sorbet or jelly, which goes on top of the glitter to make really shiny. When doing this mani you have to really dry each layer before applying the next one.
 FYI- A sorbet or jelly lacquer is translucent. If you roll the bottle around the lacquer is more watery appearing plus its really shiny after it drys.
Then the 3rd lacquer has to be a glitter. Basically you are making a glitter sandwich.

I used 1 coat of each in this order: Zoya Tart, OPI Crown Me Already, and OPI Dating A Royal. The 2 blues are very close in color. And of course base coat and a coat of top coat.

Here are the pics:

It is supposed to be extra shiny and glittery but mine wasn’t! I think it was my choice of glitter, I used one with big chunks of glitter and it probably would have been better if is used a small glitter lacquer like Spark De Triomphe.

I was so disappointed that I even put a coat of OPI I Juggle…Men to see if it would help but, I couldn’t tell any difference!

Well I haven’t given up; I’m going to try again. Have you done a Candy Mani?

OPI Mermaid's Tears - Pirates Of The Caribbean With OPI Silver Shatter

Hi Lacquer Lovers,
I am finally getting this one out of the un-trieds to see how it looks! This is a nice seafoam green (light green with a hint of blue) creme. I don't own or have seen anything like this one.
Check it out:

The formula was nice, not too thick and it dried quickly.
I had to do it, I put it with the silver shatter and I must say I really like it but, next time I will just do an accent nail with the shatter.

Do you own this and have you worn it?

Jesse's Girl - Confetti

Hi All,
Let me start off by saying that I broke one of my nails just pushing in a chair! Yeah I know! I’m going with it and it has already grown out some. This is one of the prettiest sheer lacquers that I've seen and I don't really like a lot of them because you have to put 4 coats or more on just to see them by themselves. Confetti is a very very pale purple almost a light gray base with blue and purple micro-shimmer.

Here it is:

I put on 3 coats just to make sure that it would show up in the pictures. Normally I would just go with 2 coats.
The formula is good but, it took a little long in between coats to dry. I think this is one of the best values I have found for $2.00. Do you have this one?

Just have to share...we got some cupcakes this last weekend! MMMMMMMMM.
They are very cute too!

Blue Monday – Essence @ Holografics Blue Ray

Happy Blue Monday,
I have another Essence lacquer. This one is not holographic although it looks like a duo-chrome in the bottle, it goes between blue and purple but, when I put it on it wasn’t a duo-chrome. I would just call it a shimmer. It is a very light gray base with bright blue flecks. It’s still very nice.

Here it is:

I am wearing 2 coats of lacquer and 1 coat of top coat. Have you bought any of these @ Holografics?

Jesse's Girl Firefly

Today I have another Jesse's Girl lacquer, Firefly. This is a gorgeous shimmer. It’s a really shiny shimmer. It is a very sheer white base with iridescent gold shimmer. The bottle looks like its white base with silver flecks. 
Check it out:

It’s really pretty, it’s a lacquer made for Cinderella. Sometimes it looks like a light sheer gold polish and then the light hits it at a different angle and it looks like a bright yellow gold! I really think this is a polish everyone should own and it will be good for the up coming holidays. As usual I am wearing 2 coats of lacquer and 1 coat of top coat. Do you own this?
