OPI – Black Spotted


I have had Black Spotted for a few years and never tried it, so I finally opened it! 

I’ve never posted a pedicure here before, but I had to do this quickly as my little sweetie pie napped… Didn’t have time to do toes and nails!

I started with half neon yellow and half neon pink, then I applied it on top.

The awesome neon colors are from the China Glaze Lite Brites. Whip It Good (yellow) and Lip Smackin’ Good (pink). Love these colors!

The tag on the Black Spotted bottle says to use a very thin layer. 

It came out looking pretty cool, but not the round spots that I expected after looking at other swatches online. I will be playing with this one again to figure it out.

When you have a 2 year old, you don’t have a lot of time to re-do your nails! You’re lucky to get to do them in the first place. 🙂

Seche Premier Colour

I have been wanting to try these gel – like polishes, and the girl at Sally beauty suggested this brand. Since they don’t have many colors yet, I just got the black one, Alter Ego.


I stamped with china glaze emotion.  I am hoping that since I used the proper base and topcoat for Seche Premier Colour, it will last at least a week!

The application was awesome. Two coats was completely opaque. It also dried very quickly!

Color Club Revvvolution over Zoya Lo

I saw the Vivid Lacquer stamping plates and had to get some!

This image is from VL 005. Its the famous Lorem ipsum quote block in really pretty font!

It seems like everytime I wear Zoya Lo, I love the color but really want to stamp a gray or black over it. Color Club Revvvolution is black holo that stamps nicely.

OPI – Stay The Night

I know I’ve been pretty non-existent lately! Its for a good reason, but a reason that makes me unable to swatch nail polish for a while… I will explain later. 🙂

For now, here is a swatch from a couple of months ago that I’ve been wanting to post.

OPI – Stay The Night

I loved it in the sun! In the shade it looked pretty gritty so I added a top coat and although it took away the sand look, I ended up liking it better. It stayed on for quite a while because it didn’t chip off!

I think I’d like anything that was black and pink?

Zoya – Kissy

I was bummed that the Orly After Party just looked plain black most of the time, so I added 2 layers of Kissy!

I had never tried this one, and I was *so* much more impressed with it than I ever thought I’d be. I thought the holo rectangular strips would end up being like little strands of tinsel on your nail, but it is actually like each strip is a brightly glowing rainbow!

It sounds ridiculous, but you’d have to see it. Especially since we’ve been replacing our lights in the house with LED lights, every time those would catch my nails, I’d be staring at the rainbows.

Pure Ice – Pardon My French (lemming!)

My story about looking everywhere for Pardon My French has such a happy ending! Pure Ice sent it to me themselves! I am so thankful to them, I hope they know it. 🙂

They saw my post somehow and answered the call, doesn’t that just make you love them even more? Generous and good to their customers beyond belief!

Anyway, I’ll get to the swatch! It was more than I even expected. I didn’t need a base color layer at all, and it wasn’t globby like a lot of other hex glitter polishes are. It is even a peach-ish color of brown, so it is really unique. So absolutely perfect!
