Pure Ice Heartbreaker, Rescue Beauty Lounge Più Mosso, NYX Girls Dreamy Glitter

Hey Everyone!

I’ve had this layering experiment lounging in my draft purgatory for TWO YEARS!! I initially had been saving it for a guest blog post or a rainy day, and neither happened so I decided to finally let this mani see the light of day after languishing away for so long, haha! Bear with me, this was from way back when. I don’t even think my blog was even a year old at the time and my photography/nail shaping skills were still a work in progress. But this manicure… Is just so damn pretty!

I hope you all enjoy this trip back in time to 2011. ;)

 


Pure Ice Heartbreaker + Rescue Beauty Lounge Più Mosso + NYX Girls Dreamy Glitter

Più Mosso
I started out with two coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Più Mosso by itself, a deep blackened blue filled with copper shimmer. I love this color so much. :-D

It has a clear/pink base filled with prismatic hex, star, and micro-glitter. I topped everything off with a light layer of Heartbreaker by Pure Ice. People, this polish is a layering dynamo! Just do a google search for it and your heart will stop. If you can find Heartbreaker I highly suggest you snatch it up. :-D

I really REALLY love the outcome of this layering combination! It reminds me of a dreamy underwater seascape.

Lastly, here’s a close-up so you can see all the wonderful things happening on my nail. If I could keep this manicure forever I probably would. ;-)

And here’s random bottle shots of the individual nail polishes that I used. I really need to utilize the NYX and Pure Ice polishes more often. SOOOO many possibilities! ^_^


This post brings back so much nostalgia from the start of my blog, complete with microscopic watermarks and nubby nails haha! But it also reminds me of how much I enjoy layering to see what I can come up with depending on various nail polish combinations. Methinks I’ll have to do more layering experiments a lot more often. :D

She Walks In Beauty + And The Moonbeams... 3

Morning Lovelies!

Adina sent me these lovely nail polishes a while back, and I finally had the chance to play around with them. Today I’ll be showing you two polishes from the A England Heavenly Quotes collection, And the Moonbeams… and A England She Walks In Beauty. Both can be worn on their own as well as layered over another nail polish. ^_^

A England She Walks In Beauty + And The Moonbeams…

A England’s She Walks In Beauty is an intricate mix of large and small rose-colored hexagonal glitter in a shimmering pale golden base that color shifts depending on the lighting and movement of your fingers. It’s so pretty! I used 3 coats for this manicure and you can just barely make out my VNL in photos, it doesn’t show at all in person. And The Moonbeams… is a sheer yellow-golden shimmery base filled with irregularly shaped gold glass flecks and glitter. I used it on my accent nail (ring finger) in this manicure and it was opaque enough for me after 3 coats.

This manicure has a supremely delicate and feminine look that I absolutely love! I immediately sent pictures of it to my pal Anna who is getting married next month and told her that this would be GORGEOUS for incorporating into her wedding mani (being done by yours truly :D )! She agreed. ;)

I showed you A England’s Sleeping Palace on its own yesterday, and here it is again with just 1 coat of And The Moonbeams… layered over top. I LOVE how these two look together! I didn’t think to take a photo with flash to see if the holographic nature of Sleeping Palace would shine through, but even without flash this layering is a stunner. :D

And for no real reason other than “I have a picture of it”, here’s the bottle shots for And The Moonbeams… and She Walks In Beauty. ^_^


That’s in for today everyone! The layering possibilities for And The Moonbeams and She Walks In Beauty are pretty limitless. I didn’t try layering She Walks In Beauty this time, but it’s definitely on my To-Do list for future layering projects!

Review: Ozotic Sugar 904 Swatches and Review!

Ozotic Sugar 904 - Bottle Shot

Morning Everyone!

I’m back today with one of the new Ozotic polishes that I received from Picture Polish a while back. This one is Ozotic Sugar 904, a yellow glass fleck shimmer. This is a sheer polish on its own so I wanted to play around with it a bit and show you a few different ways that it can be worn!

Ozotic Sugar 904 is a shimmery iridescent sheer yellow glass fleck polish. It can be built up to opacity though, shown above is 4 coats on its own. I quite like it this way for a more delicate look.

Here I layered Ozotic Sugar 904 over several colors. On my pointer finger you have 904 on its own. My middle finger is 1 coat of 904 layered over black (A England Camelot). My ring finger is 1 coat of 904 layered over a green (OPI Jade Is The New Black), and finally on my pinky I have 1 coat of Ozotic Sugar 904 layered over white (OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls).

And finally 904 over white. This time the glass flecks take on an opalescent tone. I love it!


Final Thoughts:

I will admit that I was a little hesitant when I first looked at this polish. It looked like it would be too sheer, and a sheer yellow on nails didn’t sound like a good life plan. :-P But once I actually tried it I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Ozotic 904! The application was effortless and it has a good formula. Dry time on its own is a bit extended but at that point you’re dealing with 4 coats of polish. Dry time layered over other colors seems typical. The layering possibilities are virtually endless!

I have a few more polishes from Picture Polish that I’ll be playing with over the next few weeks so stay tuned! ^_^
