I'm really excited about today's post cause I finally filmed another short tutorial and cause I really love how this mani turned out. It's inspired by Taylor Swift's outfit for this years VMAS (yes, I'm a swiftie). I gotta admit I didn't think I would do a houndstooth design in a long time cause I've used it several times before but when I saw her in the red carpet I knew I could use that for my nails, cause the pattern looked so festive and fun, also color appropriate for fall or a night out. What do you think of her outfit?
I did a quick video tutorial for this mani that you can watch right here.
I love how it sparkles and to be honest I never thought about a bronze to silver gradient before and I'm loving it, I'm pretty sure I can mix it up a bit for a halloween desing maybe... We'll see.
Hope you enjoyed the video and the design. Let me know if you've ever been immediately inspired by someone's outfit like I was for this mani.

We have reached the end of the challenge with my untried #32. It's been fun posting on my blog everyday, for the next couple of weeks I might not be able to post daily but I do have a few things schedule so you don't miss me too much.
My final untried (of the challenge not of my collection) is a polish I got on my last trip. Twisted pink is a hot pink creme with subtle gold shimmer. It was super hard to capture with my camera but it was more intense in real life. I used 3 coats.
There's something about polishes with gold shimmer that always makes me get them. What do you think?
Now to end with a bang here's a slideshow of all the polishes I used on this challenge.
Hope you enjoyed all these polishes. And thank you so much for all your support. ♥♥
The sun is finally out today after a few days of clouds and rain which means I can keep swatching polishes non stop.
Today's post is a gorgeous glitter from the Sally Hansen Gem Crush called Big Money, this collection came out a while ago but you can still get it pretty much anywhere I think.
Big Money has a clear base and is packed with small lavender glitter and a ton of champagne micro glitter that makes it super shiny. The formula is a bit thick but it makes the polish wearable on it's own. I used 2 coats for this pics.
I really like how sweet and different this polish is and the awesome coverage it has. I think it would make the perfect accent nail for some skittles manis.

I'm officially off work for the week and heading to a little vacay with the family which is awesome cause I'm super tired and in need to relax a bit. But fear not, I'll be posting my untrieds everyday as promised.
Today's untried is one of the few textured polishes I own. I got this one for $1.50 at Ulta, score!! Cherry drop is a cherry red creme with a grainy texture, it was fully opaque with 2 coats.
I gotta admit textured polishes are growing on me. Any suggestions of brands I should try?
Thanks for reading !
Do you have big plans for the weekend? I'm going to a BBQ at the in-laws which promises lots of food and fun. My kind of Saturday.
Anyways, for today's untried I have Sally Hansen Kiwi Bikini (that name makes me giggle) which is a light green creme, it's leans towards turquoise instead of actual kiwi green but it's still pretty. Application was good, only 2 coats needed.
Taking pictures of green/blue polishes is almost impossible, no matter how many angles and pics you take you never get the exact tone of the polish. This was as close as I could get to capture this pretty.
Do you like it?

This will be the second post of the day, a polish that really surprised me cause I thought it was just another glitter but it's actually one of my fave polishes from the challenge.
Be-Jeweled is a mix of super fine lilac glitter with small hex pink glitter that shines like diamonds. I just love it!!
I wonder if I should get more of the Gem Crush polishes since I loved this one so much. What do u guys think?
Thanks again for reading <3
I really don't have much to say today... I guess I'm still half asleep while I type this at work.
Today I'm wearing China Glaze Fancy Pants and I love it. This polish is the only one that caught my attention instantly when I first saw swatches of this year's spring collection.
I love purple polishes and if you add pink shimmer it's just perfect! Just look at it!
While taking the first pics I thought to myself "I wish the pink shimmer was more intense" and then it happened... I remembered my Sally Hansen Sparkling Rose I had never tried either and added a coat.
I couldn't just stop there, I was already in too deep so a coat of Essie Shine of times did the trick for the most awesome shimmery/flakie purple.
I hope you love this as much as I do cause... flakies!!!

It's so hot and sunny here lately (where I live it's summer) that I've been dreaming about the beach for the last few days, all the sand and the sun with an umbrella cocktail in one hand and a good book in another. Your toes and nails painted in some neon call everyone's attention color.... Enough daydreaming!
My nails are inspired by the sea, I used a few polishes for this so I'm gonna list them below:
Essie Turquoise and Caicos, 3 coats, base color
Essie Shine Of Times, 1 coat, flakies.
Zoya Breezi + CH4 for the waves
Sally Hansen Sonic Boom + Mash 35 (starfish) and SH19 (fish)
I love how this design turned out, I feel like the hidden flakies give it that sense of the sun hitting the water in a pool. What do you think?

I have my first fall/thanksgiving nail art today. I used Sally Hansen Lava as the base color and then stamped the leaves with China Glaze Passion. I absolutely love how it turned out, the colors all compliment each other really well and after I painted my nails I couldn't stop staring at my fingers.
I don't exactly remember the number of plate I used for the leaves but as soon as I do I'll update this post. Update: the plate I used is Konad M83.

I have a new nail polish to show you guys. I got this one last month while on vacation in Florida, this is one of those polishes that caught your eye and you don't even bother to look at the price. This will be a bit pic heavy.
This polish is a duo chrome that shifts between gold, copper and some pinkish fuchsia shade, I fell in love with it completely and it just reminded me of fall. For these swatches I used 3 coats and no top coat.
Do you have this color? Did you picked up any of the other shades in this collection? Post a link in the comments below if you did cause I wanna check them out.
Thanks for reading.
