NOTD: Love & Beauty Magenta glitter

NOTD: Forever 21 Love & Beauty Magenta under China Glaze Cracked Concrete Crackle nail polish

The glitter is from Forever 21‘s Love & Beauty line!  I looooove how it looks but it’s a bitch to apply!  I did 3 coats and I still had problems getting the glitter to stick to my tips.

I layered China Glaze’s Cracked Concrete over it cuz I thought it would look amazing!  It does in real life!

Edit: Want to give a biiiiiiiig shoutout to mah girl, Cat in SF for buying me a renewal gift on my Flickr Pro account!  Was set to expire on the 10th!  Sweeeet, another year of Flickr Pro!

NOTD: Cosmetic Arts “Enchanted Forest” w/China Glaze “Fairy Dust”

NOTD: Cosmetic Arts Enchanted Forest w/China Glaze Fairy Dust

I forgot to upload and blog about this! Manicure from last week! It’s the $1.99 Cosmetic Arts “Enchanted Forest” from Ross! Gorgeous color that is kinda similar to China Glaze “For Audrey” but has more green in it. I layered China Glaze “Fairy Dust” over it. I’ve had Fairy Dust for a while now but never used it on myself.

The Cosmetic Arts polish was streaky. I had to do almost 3 coats! As usual, top coat was Seche Vite!

I wanted to take pics of my current mani today but the sun was hiding behind the incoming storm clouds. *sigh*

NOTD: China Glaze Fault Line Crackle over Cosmetic Arts Yell-Oh

I promised Cassiel I’d post my current manicure so here is my Nail Of The Day (NOTD)!

China Glaze Fault line crackle over Cosmetic Arts no name yellow polish

I found this Cosmetics Arts nail polish @ Ross for $1.99. I had been looking for a yellow as I wanted to use it under the purple China Glaze Crackle that I had. I’d never used this brand so I did some searching online and found out it was a cheaper line produced by Color Club.

The yellow polish applied streaky. Ugh! It’s a creme and 2 coats was all I needed.

China Glaze Fault line crackle over Cosmetic Arts no name yellow polish

I swear, out of the 4 China Glaze Crackle polishes I have, Fault Line is my least favorite! The only reason why I hate this polish is the way it applies and crackles! It’s not a creme like the grey, pink and blue one. It’s the only one that has a slight frost(?) to it? It applies thicker than the other crackle polishes. I get the least amount of cracks with it.

I might end up just trading it off to someone.
