Color Club Harp on It

Hey there!
We were on our way to the lake (which is like a 45 minute drive)
So, I painted my nails on the way there.
This is with 2 coats of Color Club Harp on It 
and 1 coat of HK Girl top coat.
I used Duri Rejuvacote as the base.
Basically, these pictures speak for the polish.
I did a full manicure and my toes, too!
I wear this polish a lot. 
When in doubt (and in the sun) go with a silver holographic polish.
Color Club Harp on It and Urban Decay Silver holo are the best 
silver holos in my collection. (and the cheapest!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Dance Legend Optical Illusion

Dance Legend Optical Illusion

This import from Russia has been waiting to be in my collection
since my birthday in April.
I ordered it directly from Dance Legend, but
the package never arrived. So, I ordered
it from Color 4 Nails on facebook 
and received my package in a few days.
I ordered the entire holographic collection.

I did not know which one to start with, since they are all
amazing looking in the bottle.
So, I put them in a bag and drew one out. lol

This is 1 coat!
I added 1 coat of HK Girl top coat.
It has a wonderful formula that went on easily.
I am in love.
The color of Optical Illusion is a deep plum burgundy wine color.
I have shown it below in the shade as well.
I like it in the shade and LOVE it in the sun.

The bottles are pretty cool, too.
The top of the bottle has the number that the polish is.
This polish has a 4 on the top.

These retail for $13 each and can be purchased at

Thanks for stopping by!

Below is the entire collection!
I can't wait to wear them all.

Orly Elation Generation

Orly Elation Generation-3 Coats
Coral Pink jelly polish with small holographic glitters.

This is from the Orly Spring 2013 High and Freedom collection.
The other polishes I purchased from this collection were
Which I have posted about both already.

Application was easy and the glitters spread evenly in each coat.
Dry time was decent.
Wear time was good.
Overall, this is a great polish.

Thanks for stopping by!

This last picture shows its true color the best. 
Plus it matched my dress pretty well! :)

Island Girl Neons

Hey! I hope your weekend was good.
Mine went by pretty darn quick, as usual. :)
We saw Monster's University with the kids.
Very cute enjoyable movie.

I have some mini bottles of Island Girl neons to show you.
 I received this as a gift from a sweet Facebook friend from Colorado.
She bought these for me while she was on a vacation trip to Las Vegas.

Super sweet of her!
Island Girl polishes are only available in Las Vegas and Hawaii in stores.
They are also available online at ABCSTORES (click)
I went on my honeymoon back in August 2000 
to the wonderful big island of Hawaii.
I fell in love with the culture of the people and the island itself.
Since then, anything Hawaiian related I have been drawn to.
I named my daughter (who is 8 years old now) Leilani.
Leilani is a Hawaiian name that means heavenly or royal child of heaven.

So, when I saw this brand of polish, I knew I had to try and get some.

None of these mini bottles have a name labeled on them.
The formulas were typical of neons.
I did not put a base coat of white, so this is them all alone.
The blue and pink is 2 coats.
The green, orange and yellow are 3 coats.
I added these cute nail stickers I found at Walmart for $2.
Really good price for great stickers.
Then 1 coat of HK Girl top coat.

Thanks for stopping by!

China Glaze High Def

Here is a really pretty blue polish from China Glaze.
China Glaze High Def was released in the Spring 2011 Tronica collection.

I purchased mine from another polish lover here in Atlanta.
I also snagged "Gamer Glam" from her.
I hope to post that soon.

I am showing High Def here with 2 coats that went on easily.

When you know its not going to be a linear holo before you start,
you go into it just accepting whatever the result is.
And this result is really pretty.
The scattered holographic effect is easily shown.

I put an accent nail of Urban Outfitter Silver Holo.
2 coats of that as well.
After that was dry I added a nail sticker.
Then I topped it all off with 1 coat of top coat.

Thanks for stopping by!

Nabi Holo Purple

Hey there.
Quick post about Nabi Holo Purple.
When I put this on I was in a rush and
 didn't take pics of it before top coat.
But, it is a different color before top coat is added.
It was more of a purple color with more holo...
and now its like a magenta fuchsia Barney color.
It has flashes of red in the sun, sort of a glow-y color.
Really vibrant, but not purple or even holo.
The last picture is with flash, and there it had some flashes of blue.
If you get this shade, get it for the color, 
anything else and you will be "meh" about it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hits Pink Night

Hey there!
This is a wonderful polish I received in a swap.
The funny thing is, I didn't want it. 
But, I knew she wanted what I had, so I just figured "what the hey."
Turns out, I think I got the better end of the swap :)
This is Hits Specialita Pink Night from Brazil.
Its a crelly neon sort of polish.
You know?
A creme and a jelly polish mixed with a
 vibrant neon sort of color thing happening.
I believe this is 2 coats, I can't really remember.
I do know that I LOVED wearing it.
I was constantly staring at my hands.
Its like a pink red neon color, a watermelon neon if you will.
The formula went on like butter.
The wear time was good.
I added a butterfly nail sticker just because. lol
This polish is from the 2013 Hits Bright Kit Collection.
You can purchase the set of 3 at NinjaPolish for $15.50
There are 3 different colors. (Pink Night, Hot Friday, Party Rock)
Here is a review of the entire collection. CLICK.
I also received the bright neon green in this collection, called Party Rock.
Which I am excited to try as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dat 7- Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

Day 7- Ain't Nobody Got Time For That
KBShimmer The Square
Hey again!
I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this day.
I didn't really feel like nail art
or really have the patience to attempt something presentable.
But, I knew I wanted to wear this polish.
Its been sitting in my stash for almost a year.
So, I figured I would just wear this until I figured 
out what to do.
I started to paint it on and I was surprised 
by how sheer it is. I knew I should have just 
layered it over a similar color.
But, then it dawned on me. 
Here is my Day 7 polish.
This is 7 coats of The Square.
Ain't nobody got that for 7 coats of polish!
It is pretty and so far is wears nicely.
I did stop between every couple of coats and let it dry
somewhat. After layer 3 and 5 I put HK Fast Dry Top Coat.
Then after the 7th layer I put 2 more layers of top coat
to even out the glitter bumps.
I think this definitely qualifies as a timely manicure.

Thank for stopping by!

Day 6- Condescending Wonka

Day 6- Condescending Wonka
 I took this literal and did Wonka nails :)
Super easy with the decals I ordered from RLR Creations.
I messaged her the images and she whipped them up in a jiffy.
I started with 2 coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
After that was dry I added the decals and 2 coats of top coat.
I let each layer of top coat dry before doing another layer.
Then I dabbed on Black Cat Lacquer Tetris.
Tetris is a multi color small square glitter polish in a clear base.
This polish is still available for $9 on their website.

I loved this manicure.

I am late posting this.
 I had a lot of issues last week that I won't go into.
But, I am here now :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Day 5- Fancy Nails-Hello Kitty

Day 5- Fancy Nails

Hey again!
I decided to make my nails look girly/fancy this time.
My pointer and ring finger have 2 coats of Orly Preamp.
Middle finger is 3 coats of Shimmer Stephanie.
Pinkie is 3 coats of Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle.
Thumb is 3 coats of Wet n Wild Glitz.
(Each polish is very lovely in color)
I let that completely dry then added some nail stickers.
Pressed them down really hard.
Added 1 coat of top coat and viola!
A manicure any 5-12 year old girl would love, haha.
I know its not a mature "fancy nails" manicure.
But, I'm a kid at heart and this is what I like :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 4-Cats-Nyan Cat!

Day 4- Cats
Nyan Cat!
This was one of the days I was most looking forward to doing.
I also special ordered some decals to be made for this day as well
from RLR Creations.
I started with 2 coats of Color Club Harp On It (silver linear holo)
Then added the decals on top and 1 coat of top coat.
Isn't it cute?!

Nyan Cat is the name of a YouTube video, uploaded in April 2011, which became an Internet meme. The video merged a Japanese pop song with an animated cartoon cat with the body of a Pop-Tart, flying through space, and leaving a rainbow trail behind it. The video ranked at number 5 on the list of most viewed YouTube videos in 2011.-Wikipedia.

Below is with a soft box lighting.
Below is with direct sunlight.
Below is indoors with artificial lighting, no flash.
Below is a picture of the original Nyan Cat.

And below is my cat, Mr. Meow Meow.
Isn't he a cutie?!
