Serum No. 5 - Empowered Collection

Hello all!

I have a great indie brand to share today that has been in the game for a long time and well known for glow in the dark polishes.  Serum No. 5 makes amazing polishes.  They has taken a short break but are back at this year with a small collection of glow in the dark thermals with names to empower women.  I, too, am part of the pantsuit nation and the names of these polishes bring back that spark of hope for women  It has been super hot in Florida and my short nails made transition photos near impossible.  So I will be showing you the warm/cold states on two nails.  Let's take a look at these beauties!

Takko Tuesday! - Get Lucky

Happy Takko Tuesday!

I have another awesome destash find to share today.  I am always looking for those lost little takkitos looking to join my army.  "Get Lucky" is an older Takko Lacquer shade from 2013.  It is one of the few glitter toppers that they have released.  "Get Lucky" is a clear based polish that is loaded with gold shimmer, holographic gold microglitters and a sprinkling of black microglitters.  This makes such a great glitter topper!  It would look fantastic over a variety of base colors.  Here, I am showing you one coat over "Rose Water" with glossy top coat.  You might be able to get this opaque enough on it's own with enough coats.  But I love it as a topper.  The extra black glitters really make this stand out from the hundreds of other gold holo glitter toppers I have in my collection.  I am so glad I found it!

Geometric Nails for the #31DC2017Weekly


It is the 16th week of the weekly version of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge.  This week's prompt is geometric nail designs.  I am always a fan of this prompt because I find geometric patterns very appealing.  Straight lines and right angles are always pleasing.  I had a lot of different ideas in my head for a nail art look and most of them involved tiny basic shape outlines.  Take a look at my hand drawn geometric shape nails!

Glisten and Glow - 5 Boroughs Collection

Hey there!

Summer has been crazy and busy with real life, so sorry for the lack of posts.  But I do have a beautiful holographic collection to share with you all today.  Glisten and Glow released a collection of 5 gorgeous shades for the Polish Con held this spring in NYC.  Jill created a polish to represent the 5 boroughs of New York.  I picked this collection up while I was at the Con myself.  All of the muted tones really called to me!  Hopefully, they call to you, too.

Takko Tuesday! - Dreamcatcher

Happy Takko Tuesday!

Today, I have another oldie to share with you.  I don't have any new takkitos to share, so I am going through older polishes that haven't made it on the blog yet.  This one I snagged in a destash online.  I am always on the hunt!  "Dreamcatcher" was originally released in the fall of 2014.  She is a teal to magenta metallic multichrome with a sprinkling of holographic shimmer.  What is crazy to me, is that this exact polish would be on trend right now.  It seems like everyone is doing multichrome shifters with a splash of holo.
