Eclectic Glitter Leopard

 Hey guys! I wasn't sure what to really call this. I wanted to do leopard with the China Glaze glitters I recently picked up, you can see those swatches here. I used OPI Alpine Snow for the base and black acrylic paint that I used a fan brush and went quickly across the tips. Then I used China Glaze Get Carried Away on my thumb and middle fingers, China Glaze Whirled Away on my index and pinky and OPI Die Another Day and black acrylic paint to outline them.

 Also, my China Glaze Worlds Away Glitter Giveaway ends soon, don't forget to enter if you haven't already! The Pedi-Sox giveaway is now closed and I will be drawing names tonight so be on the lookout for an email tomorrow if you entered!

Gradient Tiger with Subaru Logo

 Hi guys! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday if you celebrated it and are having a fantastic Friday. A super quick post today, these nails are from a few weeks ago. I did a simple but much loved tiger print with a slight green to blue gradient with glitter. The base is OPI Alpine Snow with China Glaze Splish Splash and Wet N Wild Caribbean Frost for the gradient, ORLY Mermaid Tale for the glitter and black acrylic paint for the stripes.

 After a few days of wearing it like this my husband and I went to a Subaru car meet and I had to do the Subaru World Rally Team stars and 555 logo since we're both fans.

China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away, A Few Of My Picks

 Hey guys, today I have a few polishes from the China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away that ties in with the Cirque Du Soleil movie coming out soon. I was really excited for these to pop up and was lucky enough to be there when my store put them out and got first pick!
 Get Carried Away is a sheer black jelly base with small black and white hex glitter, medium red, silver and black hex glitter, and black bar glitter. It is thick and chunky and would benefit from some thinner. I really prefer this one layered, at three coats a lot of the glitter gets lost. Picture is three coats with top coat.

 It's A Trap-eze! is a milky white base with small and medium multicolored glitter. The formula was a bit thick as well. Picture is three coats with top coat.

 I paired Whirled Away and Running in Circles because I thought they would look amazing together.
 Whirled Away is a clear base with black bar, black medium hex and large white hex glitter. I have to admit I was slightly disappointed by it, the white glitter in this on is sparse, really any of the glitter in this one is, and you have to somewhat fish it out to get any. Running In Circles is a sheer green glass flake and is absolutely gorgeous! Picture is two coats of Running in Circles followed by two coats of Whirled Away with top coat. Please excuse the dog hair on my middle finger, our dog has long hair to begin with but is currently shedding.

 Water You Waiting For is a blue base with blue, green and purple glitter. It certainly does remind me of water. Picture is three coats with top coat.

 Have you spotted these out yet? What are your favorites?

OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service vs. Sinful Colors Winter Wonder

 Hey guys! First off I have been experimenting with my photos. I made a new lightbox backdrop and changed my lighting set up so it might be a few days before I get everything tuned in and you will probably see a few pictures with my old set up as well.
 Anyways, I had to post this today because I was out yesterday and found Sinful Colors Winter Wonder and thought it looked similar to something I just bought. Turns out, it is. It's a very close dupe for OPI On Mer Majesty's Secret Service, though OPI might have slightly larger particles in it. They are both a blue base with blue, green, pink and gold shimmer. Pictures are three coats of Winter Wonder on my index and ring finger and three coats OPI On Mer Majesty's Secret Service on my middle and pinky finger, both with top coat. Even at one coat they look exactly the same and if I didn't know any better I wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

 I love these because my feet always get really cold and the past few years I have been using legwarmers while I waited for my polish to dry but now I don't have to do that anymore, it is so nice, I always had to keep pulling the legwarmers up so they didn't creep down over my toes but these are so much better! Picture below is OPI The Man With The Golden Gun over black.

 You can check out the Pedi-Sox website here for more pedicure socks or on Facebook or Twitter! Pedi-Sox's retail for $7-$11 each.

OPI Live And Let Die with Simple Scrolling

 Live And Let Die, from the OPI Skyfall 007 collection, is a dark green base with gold shimmer, so pretty! Since I've always had trouble with scroll designs but have been practicing lately I thought it would go great with this shade and added some simple scrolling with gold acrylic paint. Picture is two coats of Live And Let Die, gold acrylic paint for the scrolling and top coat.

OPI Skyfall 007 Red and Gold Mani

 I hadn't planned on really getting anything from the OPI Skyfall 007 collection but when I saw them in person there were a few I just couldn't resist. Since I haven't had much time lately I paired three together to show you today: The Spy Who Loved Me, a gorgeous red with gold shimmer; Goldeneye, a beautiful gold glitter/flake and the gold leaf top coat The Man With The Golden Gun. Picture is two coats of the The Spy Who Loved Me followed by a touch of Goldeneye on the tips and one coat of The Man With The Golden Gun on the ring finger with top coat.

 What do you think of the Skyfall collection? Are you a Bond fan?

China Glaze Glitter All The Way

 I'm a little sad that Halloween is already over but all the holiday collections are popping up around here and I couldn't resist picking up a few colors while I was out yesterday. The first one I had to try was China Glaze Glitter All The Way from the Holiday Joy collection, this is the mini bottle from Holiday Charms set. It's a clear base with medium green hex glitter and small purple, red and gold hex glitter, very Mardi Gras looking. Picture is one coat of Glitter All The Way over OPI Alpine Snow with top coat.
