Katt Claws - Community Pool
Community Pool is jam packed with blue hex glitter and yellow shreds. For this mani I applied two coats over OPI - Ogre-the-Top Blue. I absolutely love this polish! The glitter practically glows on your nails and the pops of yellow make it so unique. What I also love about this polish is that I didn’t have to fish for the yellow shreds and application was easy breezy. Glitter polishes are usually so hard to deal with because their normally on the thick side but Community Pool is pure perfection. I can’t wait to try more of Katts beautiful polishes in the future.
Community Pool is available for purchase at Etsy.
China Glaze - Glitter All The Way from the 2012 Holiday Joy Collection
Glitter All The Way consists of multi sized gold, green, red, and purple glitter in a clear base. Other than the name, I wouldn’t consider this a Winter polish. It’s like Mardi Gras on my nails. I will definitely be wearing this year round.
OPI -DS Desire
This is my FAVORITE DS polish! Whats better than a gorgeous brown/tan linear holographic? The consistency of Desire is even better than the other DS’ I own. Its more watery/thin than the others and that made application easier and smoother. For this photo I applied three coats. Afterwards I added top coat and the holo wasn’t muted like most holo polishes.
China Glaze - Water You Waiting For from the Cirque du Soleil Collection
This is another favorite of mine from the collection. It hard to make out all the colors it consists of but I’m sure I see blue, green, teal and maybe turquoise. This is three coats with top coat.
China Glaze - It’a A Trap-Eze! from the Cirque du Soleil Collection
Multi colored and sized glitter in a milky white base. Isn’t she beautiful? It’s A Trap-Eze! is hands down the best from this collection. There are similar indies out there but nothing compares to this. Photo shown is 3 coats with top coat.
China Glaze - Whirled Away from the Cirque du Soleil Collection
For this manicure I started off with two coats of Essie - Butler Please which is now my favorite blue creme. Whirled Away consists of large white hex, black strings, and medium sized hexes. To get the white hexes on I had to use the brush to dab them on. I went a little dab crazy on my middle finger which caused air bubbles as you can see.
Ooh La Lacquer - Hypnotize. 1 coat over China Glaze Sun Kissed & 2 1/2 coats by itself. On Sale for $5 in my Etsy shop.
Ooh La Lacquer - Mattes Like Jagger
Matte purple and neon yellow glitter suspended in a clear base. Ring finger is one coat over black. Other coats are two thick coats. No top coat used.
Available at my Etsy shop.
Color Club - Gingerbread over China Glaze - FYI
For the gradient I dabbed Gingerbread at the top of my nail, dragged it down with a toothpick, then sealed it with top coat. 100 times easier than the sponging method if you ask me.
