My base color is China Glaze in Digital Dawn from the Tronica collection. It's a nice burnt orange holo, very pretty. I used Konad special polish in Black, which was probably a mistake. I didn't like the overall nail look because the image was too dark. It would have been nice if I didn't use...

Here's one of my favorite nail images. I love purple polish so I find Orly Rio Nights amazing. It is a jelly though so it took a few additional coats for me to get the opacity I wanted. I used one of my favorite image plates of late, the XL image plate D: I used China Glaze khrome polish in...

using American Apparel nail lacquer in Cocoa. I wrote in a previous entry that American Apparel polishes are HG status for me because I love creme polishes, and these are mostly opaque in one coat, glides like a dream, and the colors are wonderful. Cocoa is a nice cool brown creme, very...

of tone to 'DS Temptation', with the varying glitter casting an almost indigo ombré effect across the nails. A final view taken with flash, shows of the spectacular brilliance that is 'DS Temptation', while still managing to appear cooly sophisticated as well. Final thoughts: My first...

Two bright and sparkly colours have been added to the OPI Designer Series - check them out: DS Temptation - see how much sparkle there is in the picture? It's hard to believe, but there's even more in person! DS Bold - again with the super sparkle! This was described as red but I'd call...

It is from the much-coveted OMG collection of China Glaze. I snagged a number of OMGs from 2009, but I found this particular one at my neighborhood nail supply store a few weeks ago, and it's amazing that it was still available as the price for this is quite steep on eBay. Say no to those...

The downside to this is that it's basically a duplicate of China Glaze Mrs. Claus from Holiday 2010. OPI Designer Series Temptation. This is a total glitterbomb. There's so much glitter in here. Lots of different shapes and colors. Large purple and blue, tiny purple and blue microglitter,...

I decided I would polish my nails green for St. Patrick's Day! I chose China Glaze "Entourage" from the Summer 2009 Kicks Collection. It reminds me of Shrek! I started with a coat of Orly Bonder (my fav basecoat) on clean nails. Then I put on the first coat to find that it was almost...

OPI Designer Series polishes are $12.50 for 0.5oz compared to the regular line which is $8.50 for the same amount. I don't quite understand why they cost more when they're not holographic like the old Designer Series shades (holographic shades actually cost more to make). I mean, they do have...

The OPI Designer Series for fall 2014 introduces us to a new formula called Polished Quartz. Polished Quartz has a semi-matte finish and major sparkle. The Designer Series line now has 11 shades including these two additions called DS Tourmaline and DS Titatnium. Since these have a...
