Lynnderella Bird Brain Blue + China Glaze At Vase Value + CND Sapphire Sparkle Effects

Bird Brain Blue by Lynnderella is one of those polishes I always gravitate toward. It's so delicate and pretty, I always want it on my nails. I found it's perfect base too: China Glaze At Vase Value! And in order to really make things sparkle, I topped the manicure with CND Sapphire Sparkle Effects.  And, to make things even better, it perfectly matched my dress :) Total win!

Homemade OPI Sheer Tints Gradient + Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army

DIY SHEER TINTS inspired by OPI! We made these ourselves!

We followed the Project Swatch tutorial to make our own OPI Sheer Tints. They turned out really well and made a beautiful manicure, at least we think so!

In order to spice things up even more, I topped off my manicure with Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army. Not only is it an amazing polish, it's also one of my favorite nostalgia songs

Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army is a glitter topper that contains tiny black and white glitters and holographic pigment which really makes the polish. I wore this manicure for almost an entire week - I couldn't stand to take it off!

Colors by Llarowe (CbL) Woodstock

YELLOW HOLOGRAPHIC NAIL POLISH! Now this is what lacquerheads' dreams are made of! 

Woodstock by Colors by Llarowe is a gorgeous canary yellow holographic polish with a gorgeous lime green shimmer. I used 3 coats for these pictures plus top coat. It's a bit on the sheer side but it's worth the layering! It also does yellow your nails even with a good base coat. But, like I said, it's worth it!

I really love the way this looked on my nails and with my hands. It worked surprisingly well. Of course, the name reference Woodstock from the Snoopy comics. Who doesn't love Snoopy?!

If you can get your hands on this amazing polish, do it! It belongs in every holo-loving-polish-addict's collection. I will definitely be wearing this polish again!

Lynnderella When the Moon Was A Star + Femme Fatale Stars Lament

I've always wanted When the Moon Was A Star by Lynnderella. I think it's one of the prettiest polishes ever with it's star glitters of various sizes. I thought I would really showcase the magic of the stars by creating a simple galaxy-in-a-bottle manicure.

I wore 1 coat of Black nail polish (a Wet n Wild variety), 1 coat of Femme Fatale Stars Lament and 1 coat of dabbed-on Lynnderella WTMWAS. It's just so stunning, I couldn't stop staring at my nails the whole time I wore this manicure. I really love Lynnderella polishes and this is no exception - a total classic!

Girly Bits A Stripper Has Been Sleeping In My Bed

Here is another Girly Bits polish that is completely breath-taking: A Stripper Has Been Sleeping In My Bed. 

The name, in combination with the polish, is hilarious. A glittery mess. But a beautiful one. There are so many colours in the mix and they all glitter like a mofo. The polish, while very glitter-dense, isn't gritty. I used 1 coat of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite. I was very happy with the outcome. I chose to wear 2 coats on their own, not layered but next time I think I will try layering for the sake of saving the polish.

Colors by Llarowe Waters of Belize

I am totally binge-ing on Colors by Llarowe right now. This is Waters of Belize. It's a gorgeous turquoise with the prettiest purple sheen. It's not visible in these pictures but it's there. I actually ended up topping this with Lynnderella Third Eye Open Opal for some extra pizzazz because I can't leave good enough alone.  This polish wore like a champ! I got about 6 days without tip wear or chipping! Bravo Colors by Llarowe!!

Colors by Llarowe Bring Us the Girl Harlow & Co. Exclusive

Colors by Llarowe Bring Us the Girl might be one of the prettiest coral holographic polishes of all time. This is a simply stunning pink-coral holo polish that has small pink glitter laced throughout. It has a slightly gritty texture without top.

As you can see from the photos, this is a really unique polish. I personally don't have anything else like it in my stash so I am more than happy to own this Harlow & Co. Exclusive nail polish. While it is exclusive to Harlow & Co., it is not limited edition. It will become available once again- rejoice!

The holo in this polish is intense. I fell in love with it immediately and then I stepped into the sunlight and knew I would be wearing it again. This is perfect for summertime - tips or toes :)
