China Glaze Blue Years Eve

Well today is New Years Eve so I decided it would be appropriate to use China Glaze's Blue Years Eve! I pretty much love all blue polish and this one looked so pretty in the bottle I had to have it. I was a bit disappointed with the texture of this one, it was jellyish and squishy and took 3 coats to get full opacity. I was expecting it to be like Glittering Garland but it wasn't. I actually got so frustrated during the application I almost stopped and took it off! I am glad I left it on because it really is gorgeous so I think it was worth the aggravation. I topped it with Love & Beauty's "Navy" which is a blue micro glitter with large silver hex glitter. I am not sure how much I am digging the glitter top coat though, although it does feel very festive...kinda like confetti on my nails. Happy New Years Eve everyone, I hope 2012 brings Prosperity, Health and Happiness to all of you! xoxoxo~Rach

Here it is on it's own

and here it is with the glitter top coat

Essence Just Rock It! w/ Love & Beauty "Blue/Green" on top!

I picked up some Love & Beauty polishes at Forever 21 this past weekend and I wanted to show you the one they call Blue/Green/ I saw in in the bottle and it had an amazing duochrome so I grabbed the last bottle!  I tried it layered over Essence Colour & Go in Just Rock It.... an amazing deep navy blue. I was so impressed with the gorgeousness of the Love & Beauty! And it was only $2.80! Do you guys own and Love & Beauty polishes? Do you have this one, what do you think? enjoy! xoxoxo~Rach

China Glaze Glittering Garland

Today I have the utterly gorgeous and amazing Glittering Garland from China Glaze. I have absolutely fell in LOVE with this polish, I wore it for almost 3 whole days so that should tell you something. GG is an evergreen jelly base packed with greenish gold glitter/glass flecks. The color is deep and mesmerizing, I could not stop staring at my nails. Application was perfect, no dragging or anything. This is part of the 2011 Holiday collection so if you have not picked it up it now!!! enjoy! xoxoxo~Rach

Golden Rose Matte Velvet #107

I received this polish from my dear friend Kati who lives in the Netherlands. She always picks out such amazing polishes for me! This time she surprised me with the purple beauty....Golden Rose Matte Velvet #107. I wish Golden Rose would name their polishes instead of just giving them numbers but that does not make this polish any less gorgeous! The formula was amazing on smooth and easy to apply. The finish is different from the OPI Suedes and the Mattes, it has a ton of micro shimmer in it, I know it would look spectacular with a top coat! Thank-you Kati for sending me this beauty! enjoy! xoxoxo~rach
