Pahlish Great Wide Open and Finger Paints Pink Perscective

I have two great colors to show you today, and both are great summer colors! Speaking of summer, is it hot where you live? It has been crazy hot here for the past two weeks. I'm talking 110 degrees with quite a bit of humidity on top of that. Scorching hot! We're finally getting a bit of a break today. It's only 73 at the moment which is just awesome! :-) It's supposed to be in the 90's but even that will feel cool compared to what it has been.

Were you able to grab any of the colors from the neon Finger Paints collection? I got all but one of them, and I meant to get all of them. I somehow skipped one of the pinks. I have the pink I did get, to show you today It's called Pink Perspective. It might just be my fav. neon pink I've used yet. It's just so bright! I love it! Application was great, and I could have gotten away with one coat, but I used two.

I then applied Pahlish's Great Wide Open on top. I am in LOVE with this polish! I want to put it over everything! I'm wearing this same combo. as my pedi. right now as well.
Great Wide Open is a mix of different shapes and sizes of matte white glitter and rainbow glitter. Application on this one was great too. I didn't have any problems placing the glitter, or getting enough out of the bottle. You can find Pahlish on etsy here:

First up, the two together.

Birthday Mani. and Polish Haul!

Good morning! My birthday was June 23....two weeks ago today, so this is a little late. I wanted to post about it anyway, since it involved polish....lots of polish! :-)

First I'm going to show you what I wore as my b-day mani. It's a polish I actually got as a gift, and I'm in love with it! It's Hare Rad Cloud, which is a new Hare polish that was just very recently released. Rad Cloud is a med. pink base with lots of different colored square glitter! I really love square glitter, and think Hare makes some of the best polishes with it. There is also multi colored med. hex glitter, and tiny purple glitter. I used one coat of Rad Cloud over two coats of OPI Pedal Faster Suzi. Application was great! I had no problems with it at all. Rad Cloud can def. be worn on it's own as well.

Then we went to out to dinner with my family that night, to a really good local Italian place. I had a combo plate that included, lasagna,spaghetti,Italian sausage, and a baseball sized meatball. It was awesome! ;-)


Then we had one of the best tasting cakes I think I've ever had. Seriously, it was sooo good!


Last, but not least we had ice cream. I had peanut butter pretzel. Enough said. LOL!


I think I gained ten pounds that day, but it was so worth it! ;-)

I'm really back this time! New China Glaze,Icing,and Girly Bits.

Hi guys! Long time, not talk....again. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to bail on you all. At all. I really appreciate you sticking with me. More than I can say. Life just got pretty busy for me. Some good, some not so good things. I have really missed blogging though, and am back for good. I have so much polish, and so many manis. to show you guys it's crazy. I may not have been blogging for awhile, but I was still doing manis, and taking pics. of all of them. So, I'm kind of backlogged. I guess that's kind of a good thing? That just means I have a lot more to blog about, huh? ;-)

I hope all of you in the United States, had a happy 4th of July! Those of you not living here, I hope you had a great day! ;-) I ate entirely too much! We had a BBQ with just tons of food, and desserts. It's been extremely hot here this summer, so there has been a burn ban on fireworks. Our city still had the fireworks display tonight, so we went to that.

It's 1:30 in the morning here so technically, it's not July 4th anymore. However, I'm going to show you my July 4th mani. I hope that's alright. ;-)

I started out using Star Spangled from Girly Bits. It's a blue jelly, with red and blue glitter. It also has red bar glitter in it. I absolutely LOVE this polish. It's pretty much perfection in a bottle. It applied like a dream. I had absolutely no problems with application at all. I used two coats. I then applied a new polish from Icing called Patriotic Princess. PP has holo stars, and round medium sized red and blue glitter in a clear base. I was prepared for the stars to be hard to get out, but they weren't! I think this might be the first polish, that has stars in it, that they were actually easy to get out. That I own anyway. I just used one coat over SS.

I have one more mani. to show you today. I wore this one yesterday....well, the day before the 4th. ;-) I keep forgetting that it's actually the 5th now, since it's so late.

Anyway, I started out using China Glaze Adventure Red-Y which is a great red creme from the new Safari collection. I found it at Sally's Beauty Supply. I was surprised to see the collection out already. Adventure Red-Y applied pretty well. It was just a little sloppy, but I'm not sure if that was the actual polish, or just myself being in a hurry. I used two coats, but you could def. get away with only one! I layered one coat of Meteorites Moonshot on top. Moonshot is has red,silver, and blue bar glitters in a clear base. I don't know too much about this brand, except they make quite a few really great bar combos. You can find most of them on ebay, which is where I got mine.
