Sinful Colors Savage-Revisited

Happy Tuesday Loves!

Today I have a reswatch of a little beauty by Sinful Colors: Savage

For some reason, the original post I did on this color is one of the most searched posts on my blog. That being said, I think my original swatches of it were pretty horrible so I decided to redo them and give this polish the love it deserves.

Savage is a really pretty matte turquoise that was randomly released at the beginning of this year. At first it wasn’t marketed that well, but I think it’s been included in some of their recent seasonal displays.

Anyhow, I really, really love this color. I own a lot of Sinful Colors, but this is the only time I’ve seen them make a matte, and they did a really good job with it. The formula is really smooth and it goes on completely opaque in 2 coats without any yucky streaking or chalkiness that you often see with mattes. Check it out (try to ignore the horrible stainage on my cuticles):

And just for fun, here it is with a top coat:

So what do you think of Savage?

Do you prefer it matte or with a topcoat?

Sinful Colors Amethyst and China Glaze Electric Lilac

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Sorry today’s post is a bit late, I couldn’t drag myself out of bed this morning. I’m still feeling kinda crummy so I’m gonna try to keep this short and sweet…

First up is Sinful Colors Amethyst. This is a beautiful purple creme that just came out in their new Go Plaid collection. I had to snag this baby because I love purples and I’m always excited when Sinful Colors come out with new shades.

In the pics below I used 2 coats. It went on perfectly and it’s super shiny even without a topcoat. Peep it:

As pretty as Amethyst is, I couldn’t leave it alone so I decided to top it off with the glittery goodness of China Glaze Electric Lilac.

Electric Lilac is a gorgeous lilac jelly packed with tons of pale blue, pink and purple glitter. It’s freakin’ amazing. In the pics below I used one coat of it over Amethyst:

See why I can’t get enough purple polish and why I have more purples than any other color in my stash? It’s because of beauties like these two.

Let me know what you think of these lovelies, and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

True Blood Nails: True Death Mani

Happy Sunday Peeps!

How does the weekend go by so fast?

Boo for the fact that today being Sunday means tomorrow is Monday, but yay for that fact that today being Sunday means that I’ll get my weekly True Blood fix tonight 🙂

Anyway, I have a quick mani that I did for this weeks installment of True Blood Nails. It didn’t come out exactly as I’d envisioned, so it’s kind of a fail, but oh well.

My plan was to recreate the bloody. disgusting mess that a vampire becomes when they meet the “true death” on my nails. I painted all but my ring finger with Wet ‘n Wild Black Creme, then I splattered on Cult Nails Quench and Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby. Then I painted my ring finger with silver Sally Hansen Celeb City because “silvering” is one of the ways in which a vampire can meet the “true death”. Check it out:

What do you think? Does the red splattered on the black look anything like the bloody pulp the vamps explode into when they die?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend loves, and for you Truebies, enjoy the show tonight!

Tagged and Swapped!

Happy Saturday Lovelies!
.
Oy vey, I haven’t posted since Wednesday. Shame on me! I really need to get back on top of scheduling posts on the weekend because during the week I just get so busy that I can never find time to do them.
.
Anyway, today I have a couple different things for you. This post is gonna be a tad bit long, so bear with me 🙂
First off, on Tuesday, the lovely Chris from Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes posted an awesome challenge that I was tagged in. I’m late on posting my creation due to the aforementioned busy week, but here goes…
The Rules of Chris’ Challenge TAG:
1. Go to your lacquer stash
2. CLOSE your eyes and pull 3 random items – JUST 3
3. Create a mani from them
4. Post your mani when you post the tag
5. Tag 3 bloggers

Right now about 1/3 of my stash is spread out over every available surface in my room because I need to do some reorganizing. I grouped the ones that were out all together then closed my eyes and picked 3 bottles. I opened my eyes and found that I’d chosen:
Sinful Colors Timbleberry
Sinful Colors Green Ocean
China Glaze For Audrey
.

The pics below are what I came up with. Basically I painted all of my nails, except for my ring finger, with Timbleberry. Then I painted my ring finger with For Audrey and painted a coat of Green Ocean over everything. Peep it:

Going Green For St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Lovelies!

Even though I’m not Irish, I love St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve loved it for as long as I can remember.

When I was a little kid it was because I totally thought that little leprechauns would come out and this was the one day I’d have to try to catch one. Also, the elementary school I went to had a field full of clovers, and I was always so sure that on St. Patrick’s day I’d get lucky enough to find a four-leaf clover. I never did, but it was still fun to look 🙂

Now I love it because of Irish Car Bombs and Green Beer 🙂 Plus I have a very deep, deep love for corned beef and cabbage. I know it’s not for everyone, but I could seriously eat it every day of the year.

Anyway, another reason I love it is because I have so much green nail polish that sometimes gets neglected, and St. Patty’s day reminds me to bust it out.

I totally had this awesome water marble planned in my head for today, but when I actually did it, it came out horrendously. It was a total fail. I don’t know what happened because I’m usually pretty good at marbling, but I guess the greens I chose were just not havin’ it. So I ended up swatching a couple of my favorite greens instead 🙂

First up is China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. I think this might be my favorite green polish that I own. It’s just such a bright, pretty green creme, and the application on it is always so lovely.  In the pics below I topped it off with a coat of Sinful Colors Green Ocean, cuz you know, layering with glitter is kind of my thing 🙂

Blame It On Fat Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday Ya’ll 🙂

 

Ok, so I am so slow…I totally thought that Fat Tuesday was next Tuesday, and not today. It only occurred to me last night that I was sorely mistaken. I totally fail when it comes to keeping track of days of the week and things like that, so I keep a huge calendar on my desk at work and I set up reminders in my cell phone…apparently those didn’t help me this time.

Anyhow, I was totally planning on doing an awesome Mardi Gras water marble for today, but as it snuck up on me, I didn’t get the chance to. But you know what? I’m still gonna do one this weekend because that’s just how I roll 🙂

So instead, I have a mani featuring a nail polish that is still awesomely fitting for the day…

Misa Blame It On Fat Tuesday

It’s a fabulous bright green creme that came out in Misa’s Mardi Gras Collection in Spring of last year, and I totally lovelovelove it! The formula on it was a little thin, which is unusual for Misa, but it built up nicely with 2 coats and I had no application issues.

 

Before we get to the pics, let me share one more thing…tragedy befell one of the nails on my swatching hand last night and it was reduced to a little nubbin 😦 I refuse to file all my other nails down to match it, so until it grows out I’m gonna be swatching my right hand.

 So let’s give righty a warm welcome to the blog…excuse her if she’s a little shy and awkward. She’s just not used to all the attention yet, haha 🙂
