HARE polish- Dog Day Dream

Today I'm showing you my first HARE polish. I picked up several of her new shades in Nikole's recent pre-order. I'm wearing Dog Day Dream which is a red jelly with purple, fuschia, and orange glitter in various sizes of squares and hexes. I used one coat over two coats of OPI Houston we have a Purple.

The sun did not want to cooperate so all my pics in the shade.

 This is one of my favorites from the new collections. Application was easy. I hard time trying to accurately capture the color in these photos, but if you like red you should definitely try this one. HARE polish can be purchased from her Esty store and will soon be available at Llarowe.

Thanks for checking this out. Let me know what you think.

Lacquistry- Phoenix Bird

Hello all. Today I'm excited to show you one of the custom polishes I ordered from Lacquistry. My idea for this polish was the mythical phoenix bird. I showed Jenna pictures of the color scheme I had in mind and left it to her to bring it to life. I am so pleased with how it turned out. Jenna was so easy to work with. Phoenix bird has micro red glitter, and red, orange, and purple medium hexes, plus black and gold holo mini hexes.

shade- love how the purple glitter really stands out in this pic

Pictures show one coat of Phoenix Bird over two coats of China Glaze Fast Track. Phoenix is chock full of glitter making it seem thick. Application was easy I just had to make sure I wiped the brush off really well before applying to the nail since so much glitter is picked up on the brush. Thank you so much Jenna for making such a beautiful polish!

Lacquistry polishes can be purchased here. Check there or her Facebook page for restock updates.

Pretty and Polished- Freedom Calling 4th of July

Happy Independence everyone! Today I have a short post to show you what I wore for the 4th of July. I did a jelly sandwich using Manglaze Mayo and OPI Don't Touch my Tutu with accent nail of Freedom Calling over Girly Bits Star Spangled.

This was a very fun polish and perfect for a patriotic mani. I did find the red bar glitter to be a little unruly and tried to avoid it as much as possible. Other than that I thought application was great! I won these in a giveaway Chels held a little over a month ago on her blog. It came as a trio with A Soldiers Liberty and On Equal Ground. Her polishes are sold on her Etsy store and will soon be available at Llarowe.

Pahlish- Pianos Filled with Flames

Hello all. Today I have a polish from one of my new favorite Indie producers. Pianos Filled with Flames is a sheer raspberry pink base with small red hex glitter / red, orange, gold, pink, purple, holographic micro glitter. It positively glows! I wore it over one of my favorite reds, OPI An Affair in Red Square. It does dry with a bit of texture so I used a coat of gelous plus top coat.

Here's a gorgeous closeup of the bottle:

I kept this color on for several days I loved it soo much! Shannon has several awesome colors in her Etsy shop. I can't wait to show you the rest of the ones I have purchased. I will definitely be wearing this one again.

What do you think?  Thanks for taking a look.
