Party On My Nails?


So, this is some older CQ Silver polish, but honestly, just use any silver polish you'd like! I'm not the biggest fan of CQ polishes even though I have a few in my collection.  They tend to chip quicker than other polishes.  Anyway, this is CQ Silver polish with Wet N Wild's Fast Dry Party Of Five Glitters.  I love it! It's really colorful and fun and is a great top coat that will go with almost anything.  Sadly, I only have one picture of my nails and it doesn't show how awesome the polish is, but I hope you get the idea!

Ignore the horrid wallpaper in the background.  I NEED to paint!

Sally Hansen Ink Splatter Crackle Overcoat


I bought the Sally Hansen Ink Splatter Crackle overcoat polish a few days ago and decided to try it out over OPI's Greece Just Blue Me Away. This is my first attempt at "crackling" (I guess you could call it that?) and I don't think I did too bad.  This polish is just a plain black crackle that starts to work almost instantly. I think it's awesome.  I haven't tried the crackle polishes from China Glaze or OPI yet, so if anyone has, let me know how they are!

This polish dried really quick and this is just one thin coat over my base. No topcoat.

Sorry I didn't take the time to clean it up a little! :( But you get the idea! Love this overcoat. I will deff. be using it a lot more now!

UPDATE: After a few uses of the black crackle, it became really thick and unusable. It also started to dry on the brush before I could get it to my nail. I don't know why it did this, but I think I'm going to switch to another brand for crackle polish. Any suggestions? I know there's OPI and China Glaze, anymore that's great?

OPI Greece Just Blue Me Away


Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you all! I've been super busy at work and I finally have a day off! Woo! So, to make up for it I will attach a picture of my cute "teenage" ducks in their swimming pool!

See? All better. :-)

Anywho, here is OPI's Greece Just Blue Me Away.  I believe this color is discontinued, but I love it so much! You can wear it on its own or over a color. Whatever works for you.  This is a sheer light blue with a sort of purple/pink sheen.  I think it's cool.  Of course my camera didn't really get the sheen.  Anyway, this is 3 coats.

Don't mind the mess up on the side...and the short nail on the ring finger... I hit it off of something and had to cut it. :(
