Quick NOTD with Sephora “I Found a Pot of Gold!”

Sephora by OPISephora I found a Pot of Gold by OPI

“I Found a Pot of Gold!”

2 coats “IFAPOG!” over 2 Coats Sally Hansen “Co-Bolt Blue”Sephora Nail Polish Pot of Gold

Now on this one I did have to do some fishing for the diamonds.

If fishing isn’t done, I get an average of 1 diamond per decently sized coat (average of one also means sometimes none!).

What I do really like about this polish is that the base the diamonds sit in is a mix of both gold glitter AND a light sprinkling of holographic glitter so the entire effect is very sparkly in the right lights.

Serum No5 Swatch and Review “Peachy Keen”

Serum No5 Nail Polish

Serum No. 5′s recent debut introduced us to a DontStopCantQuitIt glow in the dark lacquer called “Day Glow”, which by judging how quickly it has sold out I believe it to be several of your guys’ party spirit animal, plus pink mermaid dreams in “Spring Into Love”, and even a mint that is in fact To Be.

Prepare yourselves because today I’m bringing in the NUDITY! (minus “ity”)

Gold glitter, warm fleshy nude, iridescence and more..

Now let me take you further into the potion cabinet to present you this Serum…

NOTD, Faux-nad MLS301 Look #6 of the Contest/Giveaway!

Loreal “Deeply Red”, Sally Hansen “Golden-I”, OPI “Into The Night” on tips, and China Glaze “White on White” To stamp the stars from the MLS301 Nail Plate.

Aside from the USA’s colors, can you tell the inspiration for this one?

The Avengers! I recently saw the Avengers and I LOVED IT. I didn’t love the beginning and the cynic in me was throwing a party pointing out all the things I didn’t like..until about half-way through when I was entirely won over.

There were so many amazing scenes that would have redeemed just about anything for me. I remarked to Mr. NB that they could have featured Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in a 45 minute musical scene and I wouldn’t even have held it against them, all because of one specific scene involving the Hulk. They gave his character such justice this time!! Which is long overdue. I know I’m not the only one who has hated every hulk movie they’ve made in the past 15 years.

BUT back to the mani, which is clearly very Captain America. To be honest I’ve never been super fond of his character, nor Superman. Ive always been much more drawn to the darker, tortured personalities such as Batman. I didn’t even care for the most recent Captain America movie but I was surprised to find myself LOVING him in this one. I can’t say enough how much this movie surpassed my expectations.

So… Go Captain America, Go!

**These are obviously WW colors. However at the end of the day, I preferred the gold detailing over silver. That’s kind of what inspiration is- having an idea and then running with it wherever it may lead**

This is look #6/12 in the Plate/Stamper Giveaway Contest!

Kleancolor HOLOS Collection Swatches and Review (39-picture-heavy!)

Kleancolor Holo Swatches

I recently picked up five new Kleancolor nail polishes (found HERE) and have swatches, review and breakdown of them for you today.

With holographic nail polish being so very in (add “forever” after that and etch it on my heart), I thought many people may be looking at Kleancolor’s holos and wondering how they stack up.

Firstly, try to get any linear images out of your head right now. These aren’t linear, they don’t look like Lisa Frank stickers or foil trading cards nor do they shoot rainbows. and it would do them a disservice if they were compared to such! What they are, however, is a collection of gorgeous, sparkly, scattering of holo dust -and lots of it- suspended in sheer color.

They are, true to company form, named very appropriately:

134 Holo Pink, 135 Holo Blue, 136 Holo Green, 137 Holo Yellow, 138 Holo Orange

(Mr. NB is behind me giving two giant thumbs up)

I think I should just halt all “picture heavy warning” notations as all my posts are picture heavy. What can I say, I love pictures. And I love trying my best to give followers the most information as possible and an all-encompassing view.
