Takko Tuesday! - Star Crossed

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Ar you ready for some brand spanking new Takkos?!?!  Well, Takko Lacquer is going to be releasing their summer collection in a few weeks and I have one of them to share with you today.  "Star Crossed" is a gorgeous royal blue that is bright and bold.  The base almost has a metallic feel to it with am aqua flash.  And then there are these teeny tiny silver holographic flakies sprinkled throughout.  These tiny holo flakes remind me of the sparkles that Zoya uses in their holographic polishes like Storm and Dream.  The formula on this polish is just great. I did two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch.  Nice and smooth.

Gorgeous color, right?  I like the sparse sparkle in this shade that isn't a traditional glitter.  This is part of the upcoming Summer 2016 Collection.  The collection is set to launch after May 20th.  Once I know the exact date I will be sure to inform you all.  Stay tuned to this weekly series for more polishes from this collection.  I will be showing them all on my Instagram page as well.  Stay tuned!

Teal holographic skittlette mani

Hey all!

I have a quick little post tonight about my awesome #notd (nails of the day).  I just threw this together at the last minute and was very pleased with the results.  Usually, I would just share this on my Instagram page but I felt it was totally cool enough for it's own blog post.

Skittlette with Dainty Digitis, KBShimmer and Misslyn - McPolish

The base is a beautiful blue leaning teal linear holographic from Dainty Digits Nail Polish called "As Blue As Neptune".  This was my first time reviewing/trying this brand and so far, I am a fan.  Just two coats and it was completely opaque, great formula.  My textured pinkie bling is Misslyn Satellite War which is a silver based texture with green and teal glitters sprinkled in.  This is one of my favorite textured polishes.  Thanks, Lotte, for sending it to me all the way from Germany!

Normally, I would have added some stamping and been done.  But I decided to try out some of water slide decals from KBShimmer.  These have a clear background with a silvery grey delicate design.  It looks raised but I don't feel any bumpiness when the top coat is applied.  These Silver Lacy Swirl Water Decals come in a single sheet which you can cut out the sizes you need for you nails.  I used it on four nails for this manicure and only used up 1/4 of the sheet.  (Obviously, my nails are small so if you have longer nails you will get less uses out of the sheet)

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this mani and it is the type of nail art I wear the most often.  Skittlette all the nails!  I just love them,  If you want to see more of my skittlette manicures, just check out my tag on Instagram #McSkittlette.  


I hope you have a lovely week!

Rainbow Nails for the #31DC2016Weekly

Hi friends!

Sorry, this is a day late but that is the beauty of this challenge.  You can catch up whenever you can!  I had many ideas this rainbow mani and finally out together a few inspirations into one fun design.  I am going to call this Latex Waterfall Rainbow Gradient Tips.  Ha...that's a long name.  The products that I am using in this mani were sent to me for review in the past but today, we are just looking at the nail art.  I hope you like this fun little mani :)

Glam Polish - The King Collection

G'day!

Boy, do I have some pretty little polishes to share with you today!  I have featured Glam Polish on the blog previously.  They are my favorite Australian indie nail polish brand and I have a weakness for their collections.  I hardly ever seem to buy just a few polishes for each collection, I just grab up the entire collection sight unseen.  So, you can imagine my excitement when they contacted me to review their newest creation, The King Collection.  Yippee!  This collection is inspired by the King of Rock-n-Roll himself, Elvis Presley.  There are nine polishes in the collection and I have 6 of them to share with you today.  Let's take a look at these hunka hunka burnin' loves!

Takko Tuesday! - Electric Apple: NYC

Happy Takko Tuesday!

I have an original takkito to share with you tonight.  In the most recent restock at Takko Lacquer's website, they made shades from the inaugural collection available.  This was really exciting for me because I was able to snag two colors that I have been wanting for years.  "Electric Apple: NYC" was on of them.  This is a classic Takko shimmer.  The base is a sort of concrete grey with a slight green tinge.  There is a soft golden yellow shimmer running throughout which when combined with the grey give this polish an overall olive feel.  It will look green at certain angles and grey at others.  Such an elevated neutral shade here!  Of course it was a lemming of mine...grey polish and a takkito?!?!  Gotta have it!  I did two coats here with a glossy top coat.  Even with the new Vitamin E infused formula, this looked fairly shiny on it's own to me.
