I'm the worst ever..

Ahhh! So so so sorry about not having a TT post up yesterday, all! I was moving my sister into school and was supposed to come back on Monday night and ended up staying until today. I just got back and I know I suck, but here's a double post of flower-inspired manis [because nail art still alludes me, sigh]. So forgive me? *puppy dog eyes*

Okay, so first up I have Shrinking Violet from Serum No. 5, a new-to-me indie brand. The rest of the Serums I have will be up for review tomorrow, so this is a little preview:] Shrinking Violet is honestly just such a pretty polish. It has this light violet creamy base with purple and blue glitters and this great shimmer [which is showing up as yellow specks in some pictures... weird]. Ugh. And it's opaque in 2 coats. So honestly, just perfect.

Going on my toes IMMEDIATELY. Really.

Next up is another new-to-me indie that I went a little overboard on. Got a TON of minis from D&R Apothecary aka Hits Polish. This one is called Marigold, and I have it over Revlon Velvet Rope.

2 coats of Velvet Rope on its own. Squishy crelly, red heaven. Honestly. And great formula.

 Pretty right? My favorite part is that gorgeous fiery orange glitter. I swoon. I just wish it were easier to get the flower shaped glitters out:/

Now that you've seen my cheats again [heehee], go take a look at my better halves' amazing floral manis.

  1. Wow! These are both gorgeous! I love Shrinking Violet!!

  2. Both are so pretty! I have been going nuts with Hits Polish!

  3. They look beautiful! I am especially loving the Hits over that red!

  4. Wow I really love both looks at the moment, the red especially is gorgeous!!


  5. The second mani is so cool, it reminds me of a something someone would wear to a really chic Chinese New Year party. Although, since I don't think I've ever been to a really chic Chinese New Year party, please take that with a grain of salt.
