China Glaze - Ick-A-Bod-Y

Hi there!

I've got to admit that I bought this polish solely for its name and the hype surrounding it. I wasn't too fond of the color swatches I saw online- and I didn't think I'd like it in person, either. I was wrong...

My nails painted with China Glaze - Ick-A-Bod-Y.

... I'm kind of mesmerized by its finish :-) The formula is what you might expect from a glitter, but it doesn't feel annoyingly chunky/gritty on the nail. I painted 2 thick coats to achieve what's pictured.

Do you like this polish? Do you own it?

Until next time...

China Glaze - Crimson

Hi there!

Here's another polish from the Haunting collection...

My nails painted with China Glaze - Crimson.

I painted 2 coats to achieve what's pictured. It's got a similar watery formula to that of Near Dark- though it didn't leave patchy spots, and I didn't have a problem getting the polish to stay put near my cuticles. Overall, I think it's a nice color if you want something almost black... but, sadly, I must say it's not unique. It reminds me very much of the other dark purple polishes I own.

Until next time...

I Have A Right Hand

Hi there!

When photographing my manicures, I often forget about my right hand. It felt left out, so today, it's making its first appearance...

My nails painted with China Glaze - Hyper Haute.
Stamped with Konad image plate M73.

I painted 2 coats of Hyper Haute and stamped with Konad's special black polish to achieve this look. I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

To anyone who photographs their manicures: I dare you to spotlight the hand you don't generally photograph in your next post :-)

Until next time...

Nicole by OPI - One Time Lime

Hi there!

My hunny poo chose this polish for me to wear today...

My nails painted with Nicole by OPI - One Time Lime.

I painted 2 coats to achieve what's pictured, and the application was exactly as you'd hope it would be. I can already tell this one is a stainer. I thought I'd play with a nail design, but I decided against it- so when I removed the polish on one of my nails... well, it didn't get the hint. I recommend a base coat with this one :-)

Until next time...

My Boo Tattoo

Hi there!

The polishes in OPI's 2009 and 2011 Halloween mini sets are eerily similar. Here are the oranges...

OPI - He's My Boo and Tattoo You Want Candy?

My nails painted with OPI - He's My Boo and Tattoo You Want Candy?
He's My Boo is painted on my pointer and ring finger.
Tattoo You Want Candy? is painted on my middle and pinky finger.

I painted 2 coats of each polish to achieve what's pictured. They're both a little bit streaky, but it's barely noticeable. In fact, the streakiness may just be a result of the miniature polish brushes- I don't often use them. The only real difference between these 2 polishes is He's My Boo (2011 Spookettes collection) has more of a milky color than Tattoo You Want Candy? (2009 Tattoo Ta-Boo! collection).

What's your favorite orange nail polish?

Until next time...
