I’m An Aqua-Holic ~ OPI ~ Blue Monday

It’s Blue Monday! You know I love blue lacquer!

Today I have I’m An Aqua-Holic by OPI. It was part of their Shimmer Into Summer collection for Ulta. I happened to go there right before Christmas and they had a ton of them which I thought was strange but I think they must have had them in the back and forgot to bring them out. Anyway I love this one! It’s a gray base with bright blue shimmer.
If you look at it in certain light it looks teal.

Here it is:

The shimmer in this lacquer is really spectacular! I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was so nice it glided right on and dried very quickly. This one could be worn year round. What do you think blue or teal?

Hawaiian Punch ~ Orly

Hi Lacquer Lovelies,

Happy Friday! I don’t wear or have a lot of pink. While looking in my untrieds I found this Orly Hawaiian Punch ~ a pink! I don’t even remember buying it.
This is a bright pink with a slightly iridescent light pink shimmer. It’s so pretty!


I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. I really didn’t like the formula on this, it was very watery, very loose and runny but still it dried fairly quickly and looked really good. This is one pink that I would wear again and I think it would be really good on a pedi. Do you wear or own a lot of pink lacquer?

Glitter Liquid/Pencil Eyeliner ~ Hard Candy

Hi All,
Today I have the stocking stuffers that I wanted to share with you from Hard Candy.
These were limited edition items but Hard Candy does have glitter liquid and glitter pencil eyeliner in their regular cosmetic collection.
If you have never tried Hard Candy I would recommend that you do because you get a very good product for a low price. They are also very trendy and you can follow a trend for a low price that you may have not tried because it was too expensive. They also have lacquer!
These glitter liners do not have names.

Up first pencil liners:

Black, Brite Blue,Purple, and Gold Pencil Liner

Black, Brite Blue,Purple, and Gold Pencil Liner

Liquid liners:

Clear Silver, Lavendar, Gold, and Black Liquid Glitter

Clear Silver, Lavendar, Gold, and Black Liquid Glitter

All together; Pencil liner, Liquid Liner

I love all of these except the pencil liner in black, it’s boring and I didn’t see any glitter! These stay on your eyes very well without smearing. I would recommend these to everyone as well as the Hard Candy line. Have you ever tried any of the Hard Candy products?

Pure Ice Strapless ~ Blue Monday

Hi Everyone,

It’s Blue Monday and today I have a bright blue glitter! Pure Ice is a brand that is very inexpensive, only $2.00. It is a clear base with very bright blue micro glitter and it shines really bright.
I hope everyone is not tired of glitter because I love it!


I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. It went on really nicely and dried fairly quickly, not as quickly as others but it was fine. I think this is a really good buy for $2.00. What do you think about this and are you sick of glitter?

Pros & Bronze Love Is A Racket ~ OPI Serena Glam Slam

Hi All,
Hope everyone is good! Today I have the OPI Serena Glam Slam that I promised to do.
I have all of the Glam Slam duos and I liked them all and this one I like too!
I wore both on the same mani, Love Is A Racket on 3 fingers and Pros & Bronze on 2 fingers.
They call Love Is A Racket a shimmering red but I call it a bright orange/red with small pink and red shimmer.
Pros & Bronze is a clear base with bronze and gold micro glitter.


I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was great and dried quickly. I like this but I think if I was paying attention I would have paired them together, duh!  Maybe I will do that in a later post. Which of the Glam Slam duos is your favorite?

OPI Nail Envy Sensitive & Peeling and Stocking Stuffers

Hi Everyone!
Today is just a post of what I received in my Christmas stocking.

Lately I have been having trouble with my nails drying out and peeling. My guess it is from all the glitter lacquer we all have been wearing over the holidays and how you have to soak your nails in remover with foil to get the glitter off. Well I got OPI Nail Envy Sensitive & Peeling treatment along with free pedicure socks! The first time I used nail envy I noticed a difference. This stuff is great! The pedicure socks are also great because in the winter my feet are always freezing especially when I am getting a pedi.

Next I received 2 little Hard Candy eyeliner sets. One is liquid glitter liner and the other is glitter eyeliner pencil.  These are so cute and fun. You know I love glitter! I will have swatches of these at a later time.

Finally last but not least is OPI Serena Glam Slam Pros & Bronze and Love Is A Racket duo that I will also have at a later time.

What stocking stuffers did you get that you love?

Victoriana ~ Butter London ~ Blue Monday

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update, sorry but I will be really busy the next 2 weeks so I will only be posting about 2 or 3 times a week unless I accomplish things faster!

Today I have Victoriana from Butter London. They call this a vintage blue pale and slightly smoky, reminiscent of the Victorian era. I call this a tealish gray with silver shimmer. I guess you could say smokey.

What do you think?

I am wearing 2 coats with a coat of top coat. It went on nicely and dried quickly but after the first day it chipped when I was pushing back my cuticles! Let me just say that I do wear base coat and the cuticle pusher I was using was a rubber tip one! I was so mad! What do you think smokey or just teal?

Mistletoe Me! ~ China Glaze

Hey All,
This is the 2nd Ulta exclusive by China Glaze that I bought the other day.
I selected this one because I don’t have/wear a lot of pink so I decided to get this one because it looked so pretty in the bottle.
It’s a bright pink foil; bright pink with shiny silver.

Here it is:

It’s very pretty. It is so shiny. I think this is one for all the time wear and not just the holidays. I am wearing 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. The formula was so velvety and smooth, it dried very quickly. I would run out to Ulta today if you want this one. They had a lot of it at my Ulta. Would you wear this one year round?
