NCC Neon #4

One more!! At the last second too. Sharra has finished a challenge month! WOOHOO! And it's good too :O

Anyway, over yesterday's Fergalicious and Candy, I did a freehand V-gap type thing in Sally Hansen Blue Me Away.

And then I added Sally Hansen Urban Chic and glitter tips with Fingerpaints Santa's Magic! Sometimes, I should just stop... this wasn't one of those times :D TEEHEE SPARKLY

Blurry pics for holo twinkle =3 Then, to make it a little more gradient-y I put China Glaze Make a Spectacle over the whole thing.

SO MUCH SPARKLY. I am happy.

Swatch: Wet 'n' Wild Fergalicious and KleanColor Chunky Holo Candy

NEON! So. I have 200+ bottles of nail polish and didn't have neon pink. Fixed that, though, didn't I ;D Two coats, though one was doing pretty fine. If you need a neon, here it is:

So, the glitter was disappointing but those "chunky" holos didn't really pan out. Good thing they're cheap (but stinky).

I'm gonna squeeze one more neon mani in so come back tomorrow k? :D

What's your favourite neon colour?

Baking: Chocolate peanut butter chip cookies!

Pre-post reminder: Google reader is shutting down Monday and I'd hate to lose you! Please move to bloglovin (it's really easy when you sign up) or use RSS or something <3

D: Oh my gawd guys, I ate like half this batch of cookies on my own. They were SO GOOD. Didn't last the night. We used the recipe on the Hershey's website HERE. It made 48 cookies. The site says 54, but what the hell kind of number is that?

And then there were none.

They were amazing.

Swatch: Rainbow Honey The Kraken

Hi guys! This is another product sent for review from Rainbow Honey's new collection, The Summer of 199X. I'm gonna be honest, I have a lot of colours like this one and I didn't expect it to blow me away but, well, take a look... Two coats did the trick, but I think I did three on some fingers. It's almost a case of the photos looking better than the thing itself. Almost.

[OH and I just want to remind you guys that you should migrate to bloglovin or something if you love me, since Google Reader is fizzling out on Canada Day. See you there?]

Uuuuugh I'm going to have to order the rest of them, aren't I? Bye, bye money...

The Summer of 199X is on sale now =3 If you spend $50 and you're in US and Canada you get free shipping and a gift polish so check out Rainbow Honey on their website and Facebook today. Tell 'em I sent you! <3

Swatch: Orly On The List

JELLY. Squishy, squishy jelly! I got this for fifty cents, which means that everything is perfect, no questions. I swatched it on the wheel and it looked quite maroon/purple-ish, but when I put it on my nails, the first coat was quite raspberry. After 3 coats (shown below), the colour is a dark glamorous red. Definitely on the list ;D

It's a beautiful jelly but to save time next time I used it, I think I would start with a base coat of Sally Hansen Cruel Heart which seems to be a very similar colour (despite looking purple in the bottle).

I decided to give this whole jelly sandwich thing a try. Spoiler: I GET IT NOW.

I put down one coat of FingerPaints Santa's Magic, and one coat of Orly On The List on top.

*drumroll*.... SANDWICHED.

It is SO twinkly!! The full holo got a redwash and good light it's as above and in low light...

Oooooh I am so not going to pay attention to anything tomorrow...

What are your favourite Jelly Sandwich combinations?

NCC Neons #3

D: Omg a challenge post. Srsly, I don't know why they put up with me, I am the laziest. And lately, quite uninspired.

Luckily for me today, I have socks.

I started with a coat of Essence Black is Back (obvs). I then frenched using my new neon pink, Wet 'n' Wild Fergalicious (swatch soon). I used my dotting tool after that to poke little hearts and stars with Fergalicious, Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, and WarPaints A Mile Away and Bad Apple.

From here, I used Black is Back again to fill in the centre of the shapes. The stars look rather flowery but I did my best anyway.

 I needed a topcoat and since these were neon already, my Black Light topcoat appeared to be a good idea.

 Can you tell? It legit turned the black purple! Last time I thought it was just because the grey was a light colour but nope! So keep that in mind if you guys get one of these. It purples.

Anyway, you thought I was kidding about the socks, right?

You should know better =3

Swatch: Essence Black is Back

It's about time I swatched this. Apart from being a great stamping polish, as made famous by A Girl And Her Polish, this black is a nice, two coat creme.

 If you're looking for a black base, this one's not bad. I had a little bit of bubbling and it does show ridges on your nails. I'm gonna hide it under some wacky design so I wasn't worried.

What's your go-to black?
