Christmas Mani!

Sorry to have this post up so late! I've been busy with the holidays, but better late than never right?

This was my Christmas manicure! The base color is Butter London Pearly Queen and the glitter is China Glaze Twinkle Lights. I've seen a few other bloggers with manicures similar to this and I wanted to try it out! I absolutely LOVE this combination.

This is 3 coats of Pearly Queen and I just dabbed and spread out Twinkle Lights to get the design I wanted.

I had no trouble with any of the formulas. This was actually one of my first Butter London polishes and I've fell in love with it! The formula is great for Pearly Queen. No drags or patchiness. It was a bit sheer, but 2-3 coats fixes it.

Orly- Fowl Play

I found one of my lemmings two weeks ago! I've already checked it off my wishlist and everything. I was super excited to find Fowl Play! I thought it was discontinued (maybe it was? It was part of the Birds of a Feather collection), but anyway I found this along with a few more bottles at Ulta. Thought it was strange since it's from last fall but I picked it up anyway.

Fowl Play is a gorgeous mix of duochrome flakies (that shift from red, orange and green), blue glitter and silver micro glitter all in a medium/deep plum colored jelly polish.

This is 3 coats of Orly Fowl Play with Orly Won't Chip topcoat. I had no issues with the formula or application.





I've seen a lot of people say that Fowl Play is a near dupe of OPI's Merry Midnight that's HTF. I unfortunately don't own Merry Midnight, but from what I can tell, they are pretty close. If you're searching for Merry Midnight, Fowl Play may just be your fix (of course it's a lot cheaper too!)

Time For Another Baddie But Goodie!

So while my normal camera was being a pain and didn't have batteries, I was using my phone to take photos. My phone does have a macro setting so I don't get the worst pictures but they aren't great enough to make a blog post with them.

Well here are those pictures! Polish is goodie, horrible pictures on my part, baddie.


2 Coats Sinful Colors Black on Black and 2 coats of Jesse's Girl Confetti on top

3 coats of China Glaze Fast Track

My Thanksgiving mani: 2 coats of Piggy Polish- Baby, It's Gold Outside (on index, middle and pinky) and 3 coats of China Glaze I Herd That (on ring finger)

2 coats of OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest

3 coats of Maybelline Color Show-Downtown Brown

I believe that's all I have for now!
