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. 🙂

China Glaze – Surreal Appeal Comparison

I had to get Surreal Appeal from the Cirque collection. It turned out to be the perfect pinkish coral creme that is bright but not a neon.

I grabbed 3 other China Glaze pinks and compared them all. The pinky nail is actually Flip Flop Fantasy but I hate that the camera can NOT capture that color no matter what I try. I went to Google Images to search for an accurate Flip Flop Fantasy swatch and there aren’t any! They all look like their cameras freaked out as well, so all I can say is…. go get it, its one of my most favorite polishes ever and you just don’t know what its like until you put it on your own nails. 🙂

Anyway, the others came out really accurately though! The bottle is Surreal Appeal, so you can see it ends up darker on the nail.

Here is a shadier swatch, followed by one with a little more light. Its Wicked Style, Sugar High, Surreal Appeal. Let’s just ignore the pinky. 🙂

After comparing these, I found I don’t even like Sugar High as much anymore, its a little too blue-ish for my skin tone.

Color Club – Bubble Pop

I tried to swatch this with China Glaze – Flirty Tankini because it is really hard to tell them apart, but I have to swatch in our new place at a certain time of day to get the right indirect sun!

I chose to wear Bubble Pop instead of Flirty Tankini because it was just a tiny bit brighter! Flirty Tankini had more of a vintage coral look and Bubble Pop was more neon and summery. But again, they are really hard to tell apart still, if that makes sense. 🙂

Here is Color Club – Bubble Pop!

It was hard to really depict how neon it is though, so I tried to get a more shady picture so you can see the Pop more. It is REALLY hard to photograph these summer neon polishes!

I am so excited that OPI – German-icure and Every Month Is Oktoberfest are on the way to my house!

China Glaze – Pink Plumeria

I’m trying to get settled into my new home here, which includes trying to find a new spot for swatching! As you’ll see, I haven’t found the right spot yet. But I didn’t want it to keep me from swatching my favorite new China Glaze neon!

China Glaze - Pink Plumeria

This one really surprised me! I didn’t expect it to be so shimmery! The pop kind of comes from a milky shimmer underneath, and then if you look closely, you can see this really warm hidden shimmer that comes out at certain angles.

I got the Pixi Glow polish too, and it looks similar in the bottle, I’ll have to do a comparison!

Belated Giveaway Winners next! So sorry for the worst delay ever, but hopefully a wedding, honeymoon and moving in with the new hubby is a good enough excuse that I’ll only use once!? 😀

Shocking Pink Konad!

I wore this one for days and days, until it was just about to fall off. I loved it so much! I put it on the night we went roller skating at this old historic roller rink in LA.

So if you look at my last post, I started with the China Glaze – Shocking Pink, but then I took the Color Club – Screamin Fuschia and went over it in places so that it had a neon pink with neon reddish pink blend. I stamped over it with Konad Black Pearl.

The plate I used for this one was A10, which you can actually buy at that place in the link root, but I think I got it from TransDesign or ChezDelaney.

It isn’t summer anymore so I guess I won’t be doing neon again for a while!
