Twinsie Tuesday: International Choice

Hey all! So all of my posts now will be scheduled since I'm in Cali for camp for about a month. So for today, Roisin asked us to do a mani based on Ireland. I was super crunched for time, so I decided to show one of my favorite polishes ever: Pahlish Creeping Cabbage. The green jelly base with the orange accents definitely reminds me of Ireland's colors. Though I've never been there, I would LOVE to go some day.

Anyway, CC took just 2 coats and seriously, just look at that. This shade of green plus the round glitters is definitely up my alley.

TT July Fourth

I seriously keep forgetting when Tuesdays are and I'm the worst. Also, I FINALLY got a new laptop and can now actually go online for more than 5 minutes before my computer poops out on me. I'm in love. Okay, so here's my super fast Fourth of July mani:

I used Orly Royal Navy with a white glitter one-off I made, then DL Stop and Stare with CG Ring in the Red as the glitter topper.

Stay tuned tomorrow for some major nail spam!

Zoya Liberty, or How to Get Horrific Stains Off Your Nails

This polish.... Oh man. So stunning, but SO STAINY. I can't even handle it. I mean, I completely love this polish and would probably wear it again, but..... not for a long time. Okay, so gaze upon the gorgeousness.

I mean. Stunning, right? And I wore the crap out of it for 3 days. But then (FULL STAIN AHEAD, BEWARE):

DUNDUNDUNNN. This is gross. Like,  what even. It would have stained my skin also, but I coated the skin around my nails with cuticle oil. 

So then I put whitening toothpaste on my nails for just over 5 minutes anddddddddd

Still not great, but, buffer to the rescue!

Begone, demon stains!


Anyone have an easier way to get stains off your nails? Or any other polishes that are this... stainy?

Twinsies Hit the Beach!

For this week's TT, we were charged with posting beach inspired nails! And I've had a sucky streak with nail art this summer, so I thought I'd stick to the usual and show you an early franken I made a few years ago. I was going through my collection recently and purging and found this polish, a nude that I made for myself, but with a little something extra:] If this had a name, I've totally forgotten it, but this is a warm nude with gold shimmer and iridescent blue microglitter :]

TT: Textured Nails

I'm the absolute worst, I've been apartment hunting and forget to publish this post, but here's Sally Hansen Sweetie for our textured nails of the day! I had 2 coats on here, and the polish went on really well, no problems with thickness or anything (though I've seen reviews that say otherwise, so I'm thinking maybe batch inconsistencies?).



I like this shade of yellow a lot, and I'm still on board the whole textured train, so I was a pretty big fan of this polish:] I hear there's some new Sugar Coat  polishes coming out, and I definitely have my eye on a few of them!

Rainbow Honey Fab Summer Set

*Polishes in this post were provided for review in exchange for my honest review*

Hey all! I have some wonderful polishes for you today from Rainbow Honey. These three are from the Fab Summer Set, which are sold at fab.com! The set would be three full sized polishes, though the ones I have today to show are minis. Sidenote, how cute are these new RH mini bottles? Love them.

Okay, the formula on all three of these is great. I used 2 coats of the shimmers and then topped them with Costa Del Sol. Both Tenda and Schrammi covered beautifully in 2 coats, and all the polishes were super easy to apply! CDS covered and spread really well, also. All in all, super happy with all of these:] I really love the copper shimmer in Tenda and Schrammi.. so beautiful.
