What do you get when you take Orly Rock Solid and pour in a bunch of China Glaze Hawaiian Punch, NYX Maroon, and Spoiled Cougar Attack?

Isn’t it pretty? When I got Rock Solid, I was bummed that it was just gray and not brown at all, so I thought I’d make it burgundy with some NYX Maroon. Then it was too purple and I wanted it a little pinker, so I added the China Glaze Hawaiian Punch. Then I remembered I wanted brown in the first place and dumped the Spoiled Cougar Attack in. haha!

Now I have a full bottle of this awesomeness!

OPI – DS Reflection

This is the ONLY color I own that I can describe as a *perfect* red pink!

All of my other red pinks or pink reds I had like China Glaze Sneakerhead were just too bright, too red, too magenta, too sheer, too something. But not this one!

Its also a DS, so its gorgeous and glitzy. Its a reddish base with pink and coral particles. Kind of ruby red grapefruity! Its a holographic too.

This doesn’t always show up, but there is a slight buttery summery yellow flash that you get with this one at times. I could capture it more easily in the bottle.

Not a new color, but if you haven’t tried it, you should… its awesome. 🙂

Jade – Deja Vu

Finding a good spot in my new house for indirect sun swatching isn’t going so well, so I got desperate and did this in my work parking lot with my tablet! The pink holographic looked SO awesome in the sun, I had to get a picture!

I got this one from the llarowe shop. I couldn’t resist the “hot pink holographic” description. It is a little more blue-toned than I hoped but the particles are tiny, so this looks REALLY cool in the sun! Like foil.

I’ve actually had it on since last Friday, and wore it to Palm Springs for my birthday… going pool-hopping! So it stays on really well too. 🙂

Up Colors – Multi Magenta

This is Up Colors – Multi Magenta!

It has been raining here, so it was hard to get a sunny shot, but even in regular overcast light, do you see how it glows?

These are really strong holographic polishes, you can get them on the llarowe shop!

It was hard to show exactly why I like this color, compared to all of their other similar pinkish hues. This one is a dusty rose type of color. It isn’t as light as it looks in the photo, in full shade or low light, it actually tends to look darker.

I have Rosa Prisma as well. These apply really nicely, I didn’t even use my aqua base and had no weird bald spots to cover up or fight with.

Nerd Lacquer – Nebula

Let’s not discuss how much I paid for this one on ebay and get right to the swatch, shall we? 🙂

This is such a gorgeous burgundy jelly full of different sized holo particles! It isn’t really chunky either, it lays flat and looks amazing!

This is only one coat! I was half in a hurry and half wanted the jelly effect, so I left it at one. And it is lasting forever, this one hardy coat!

I’ve had it on for a few days now and got a lot of compliments.

What do you do by the way when someone says, “Wow, I love your nail polish, what is that one?” and you know they haven’t heard of Nerd Lacquer, and also know they probably wouldn’t pay over 10 or 12 bucks for a polish?

I get stuck in these exchanges pretty often… this was my latest at David’s Bridal:

Cashier: Wow, I love your nail polish, what is that one?
Me: Oh its called Nebula… its by this little brand called Nerd Lacquer?
Cashier: Nerd Lacquer? I haven’t heard of that one, where did you get it?
Me: Well *I* got it on ebay, because it was sold out everywhere else, but you can get it online.
Cashier: I could look on ebay for it, how much was it?
Me: Umm… *shameful blush* I think I paid about 24 dollars, but they just get bid up like that when they are sold out everywhere else.

haha!

Nfu Oh – 63 over China Glaze – Concrete Catwalk

I wanted to use the new Konad plate I got. It is one of their latest – m85.

I started with China Glaze – Concrete Catwalk and then stamped with a pink holo, Nfu Oh 63. I love stamping with these because it does look pink and gray mostly, but in the sun you can really see the rainbow appear in the stamped design!

OPI – My Private Jet (holographic green label)

So this is supposed to be the 2nd batch that is still holographic but the “teal flash” version!

I swapped it on MUA for my backup of Nfu Oh 61, and I’m wearing it today.

I think the holo effect is a lot stronger in the bottle than on the nail, it is kind of scattered on the nail. This is over the Nfu Oh Aqua Base Coat too. In the sun it looks amazing though!

I wonder if I will ever find the real original one!
