Vampire Lace

When they had the Orly Haute Look sale, I got Au Champagne half-off. I had a feeling I’d be able to stamp with it. I’m so glad I was right! It just has the frostier look than a silver.

The burgundy is an old Maybelline Colorama polish called Vampire Seduction, and it somehow still applied really well, like it was still new.

The image was from the new Bundle Monster 2012 set, plate BM-323.

And I have to add… I am LOVING Vampire Diaries this season. 😀

Dark Teal Comparison

I have so many dark teal polishes that I’ve built up a pile of lately, I wanted to put them all together so you can see the differences up close!

I tried to take them in sun, shade, at different angles…

Here are the polishes on the wheel clockwise + the 3 I cut to put next to them:
Nicole – Too Rich For You, Sally Hansen – Tealy Fast, Essie – Trophy Wife, Zoya – Akyra, BB Couture – Playboy, OPI – Cuckoo For This Color, Catrice – After 8, Deborah Milano – Emerald Bijou, Maybelline – Blackened Teal, Pure Ice – Iced Teal, China Glaze – Blk Bila Bong, Urban Decay – Grunge, OPI – Unripened, Maybelline – Cool Couture, Essie – Dive Bar (1 coat), Essie – Dive Bar (2 coats), and Sinful Colors – See You Soon

Water marble!

I made a second attempt at making you guys a tutorial video!

This time, the camera was much better… I’m not sure the educational part was as good since it was my first time water marbling, but hopefully you’ll learn something, even if its how not to? 🙂

The first try was not a success, so I learned something myself… but my second time came out pretty cool! Next time I should be able to do it for a real manicure.

(The polishes I use here are hard candy sky, entity brown plum, color club vintage couture, eyeko pastel, zoya shimmer, and maybelline pink halo.)

Pinks with hot pink shimmer…

I saw the new Spring displays that Maybelline just put out and wanted to swatch the pinks because they both have the hot pink hidden shimmer inside! Pink Halo and Pink Glimpse.

I picked up both from these:

Then I grabbed my Zoya – Barbie and Nicole by OPI – You’re an Angel to compare them since they all have hot pink shimmer in them.

Since the hot pink shimmer only shows in the sun I had to get that photo in direct sun. It was still hard to show the shimmer inside of Barbie, so now I feel like I don’t like it as much… her hidden shimmer is a little too hidden.

You can see the hot pink flash the most with Pink Halo, that one is more of a sheer. Pink Glimpse is my favorite though, the bottle that I’m holding. It is a nice white and pink frost with the hot pink shimmer inside and leaves no visible nail line. It is the prettiest to me! I think I’d wear that one with the Pink Halo over it to intensify the pink flash… sounds perfect to me. 🙂
