Pipe Dream Polish: She's A Thriller

Today, I've got the spectacular She's A Thriller for you!  This polish has unfortunately been discontinued, so I hope you were able to grab a beautiful bottle!

Ah, there's the beauty!

The cap was very easy to hold, the very wide brush was fantastic, and I had NO problems with glitter pickup after the bottle was upside down for a few minutes - I actually had to brush off some of the larger pieces! This baby dried in seconds too!

Here is two coats over Sally Hansen's Pacific Blue, topped with Seche Vite:

Here is the same thing, mattified for fun:

And because I absolutely loved this color combo, here it is over China Glaze's Highlight of my Summer, also mattified:

Thanks for reading!

Lacquerlicious: V-Day=D-Day

Hello! Today, I have a full review of the stunning Lacquerlicious's V-Day=D-Day! (@/creativenailchick on IG) This polish has everything you could possibly ask for; there are so many different colors, sizes, and finishes to the glitters: skull and crossbones, stars, circles, hex, square, bar, and heart! It is in a clear base and there is a prominent pinky-purpley shimmer to it! Unfortunately, this polish was exclusive for Valentine's Day so it has been discontinued :( But I'm gonna review it anyways, as it's my first indie polish!

Look at that gorgeous polish! The brush is flat and fairly wide, and the formula was a little goopy when I first opened it, but after I turned it upside down for a few minutes, it went away! The matte black cap is easy to hold and didn't slip at all!

As you can see, there are so many gorgeous glitters in this baby!

Now, with the swatches! I had barely any problem with glitters, minimal fishing was required after the bottle was upside down for a few minutes. I only placed a few of the larger glitters to get them where I wanted them to go, no trouble at all with the smaller ones! I had a hard time trying to get that gorgeous shimmer to show up, it will make it's appearance in the next few photos.  

Here over white and purple bases, topped with Seche Vite:

Yes, here we go with a little bit of the shimmer! Right in the sun:

Now, I mattified it with NYC Matte Me Crazy! (I tried to mattify with OPI's Matte Top Coat at first, but that took away ALL of the shimmer!)

In the sun (here, the gorgeous shimmer finally comes out to play!) :

I've never liked pink very much, but this polish may have been able to change my views a little bit! Yay! What do you think? 

Thanks for reading!

A Blank Canvas

Hello!  I though I would start out this blog with a plain, white,  simple Mani!  Here's A Blank Canvas by Wet N' Wild,  my favorite drugstore white polish. The brush is nice and thin, and the formula is a little thin as well, but very layerable. (is that a word?) I haven't tried out any high-end whites yet,  but I am hoping to try out one soon!  Well, that was boring, but you'll be seeing nail art this week
