Jazz Cup Splatter

I decided to do a splatter pattern today using straws, but, again, I didn't have much success. It was really difficult to get the polish to splatter by blowing through the straw. But anyway, as I was doing these nails, I was reminded of the Sweetheart Jazz Cups, because the colors are so similar. 

I started with two coats of a Sally Hansen white mini that came from an old holiday set. Then, I dipped a straw in b.pretty - sky to create the turquoise splatter. Next, I did the same with Rimmel London - Blue My Mind.

Essie - Turquoise & Caicos

I always love wearing this color! Here's two coats of Essie - Turquoise & Caicos.... First with flash:

Then, without flash: (I think this shows the color more accurately.)

b.pretty - sky

Got this nail polish at BIPA. This is two coats of b.pretty - 18 sky. The color was very dull on its own, so I had to finish with the Seche Vite top coat for extra shine!

St. Patrick's Day Nails

These St. Patrick's Day Nails are a little late!!! But, I started with two coats of Wet n Wild - SaGreena the Teenage Witch. Then, I used Pure Ice - Super Star with BM03 for the shamrock stamp.

Essence - City That Never Sleeps

This is the new Essence nail colour 3 set. I think there were 5 different sets, but this was the only set that had colors I like. For these nails, I just used City That Never Sleeps Side. I think it is generally supposed to be layered over the other polish, Midnight Date, but I decided to try it alone. I had to use 3 coats, though, because it is so sheer. The shade is really nice. It is a light purple with turquoise flecks.

Essence - Blue Addicted

More new nail polish!! This is two coats of Essence - Blue Addicted. This is only two coats of it, and I think three would have been better so that the glitter would be more evenly distributed. 

Then, I decided to try a matte top coat, which I think created a cool effect with the glitter, but overall, I didn't like it that much.

Rimmel London - Blue My Mind

I love my other Rimmel London polish that I got in London last semester, so I decided to pick this one up at BIPA. It is called Blue My Mind. This polish actually looks a lot more purple in person. But, here's 2 coats of Rimmel London - Blue My Mind.

Mardi Gras Nails!

When I saw Spoiled - Pet My Peacock in the store, I immediately thought of Mardi Gras. I decided to layer this over Essie - Sexy Divide. I was really disappointed with the quality of Pet My Peacock, though. The base is really thick. This made it hard to apply multiple coats, which was definitely necessary to get enough glitter on the nail. Overall, not too pleased with these, but I thought I'd post them since it's Mardi Gras.
