Nails Inspired by Live Clean Vanilla Peppermint Hand Soap

Snowflake Nails inspired by Live Clean Vanilla Peppermint Hand Soap

Another #CBBxManiMonday! This week, my holiday themed nails are snowflakes.  Inspired by the design on my bottle of Live Clean Vanilla Peppermint hand soap, they have light green, silver and blue snowflakes on a white base. This is the hand soap I have been using between swatches so it seemed right to do nails inspired […]

My Indie Polish Rat Rod Paint Job Swatches

My Indie Polish Rat Rod Paint Job Swatches and Review - Artificial Light

An oldie today.  I used this one the other day as a black base and not sure I ever realized it was meant to be matte.  My Indie Polish Rat Rod Paint Job is actually charcoal matte and not a deep black.  Plus, it can be a one coater which is always a plus when […]

Fiendish Fancies Sleep Eludes Me Valentine’s Day Nails

Fiendish Fancies Sleep Eludes Me - Hit The Bottle Glint of Gold - Valentines Day Nails Swatches and Review

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without some red nails with hearts.  Using a base of Fiendish Fancies Sleep Eludes Me, I went with Hit The Bottle A Glint of Gold on these but I think a metallic gold rather than holo may have looked better.  In person, it is beautiful but just does not translate […]

Color Club Blue Skies Ahead Mood Polish Swatches & Nail Art

Color Club Mood Polish Blue Skies Ahead Stamped with BMXL17 and Hit The Bottle Holo There Beautiful

Another Color Club Mood Polish!  This one is Blue Skies Ahead, a light blue to a dusty light purple thermal polish.  It is a little brighter in colour than the bottle colour suggests which I personally prefer. You know that with blue and purple, I am a huge fan of this polish but it does […]

Color Club Serene Green Mood Polish Swatches and Nail Art

Color Club Serene Green Nail Art

Possibly my favourite from the collection, Color Club Serene Green is not very serene nor green.  This thermal mood polish transitions from teal when warm to indigo-purple when cold.  As you can see on the brush, a nice opaque formula.  Still needs two coats for full opacity but it is beautiful.  Unlike some of the […]

Color Club Feelin’ Myself Mood Polish Swatches & Nailart

Color Club Mood Polish Feelin' Myself - stamped with BMXL17 - transition

I seem to be on a bit of a pink kick lately which is weird for me as I rarely wear pink.  But Color Club Mood Polish in Feelin’ Myself changes to purple and you know I love a good purple.  This shade has a great formula, none of the brush stroke issues I experienced […]

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Rosey Riviter (180) Swatches & Review

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 180 Rosey Riviter Swatches Full Sun

After being impressed with Frill Seeker, I had high hopes for Sally Hansen Miracle Gel and tried out Rosey Riviter next.  This is shade has been available for at least a few years.  Right out of the bottle, I could tell that the formula was not quite as nice as the nude Frill Seeker.  The polish […]
