KleanColor Blue-Eyed Girl, revisited

Hello all and happy Sunday night! I hope you are all doing fantastic. Remember Blue-Eyed Girl? In case you don't (and just because it is gorgeous lol), here it is:


Beautiful right? Well, after a couple of days of wearing this, I began to wonder what it would look like with a matte top coat. I did not want to remove this beauty so soon, but curiosity got the best of me and I slapped on Essie Matte About You. OMG, I loved it!!!

Base coat: Essie fill the gap!
3 coats of KleanColor Blue-Eyed Girl
Top Coat: Seche Vite
Matte top coat: Essie Matte About You

Isn't this wonderful? I am definitely in love with this polish! I cannot believe it was only one dollar!

Thanks for reading!

Kleancolor Blue-Eyed Girl

Hello lovelies! I have the second Kleancolor polish I picked up at the swapmeet. This one is called Blue-Eyed Girl and it is GORGEOUS! I received so many compliments on this one. Without further ado, here it is:


(these two pictures were taken indoors-ignore the weird reflections on the nails please lol)

Base coat: Essie fill the gap!
3 coats of Kleancolor Blue-Eyed Girl
Top coat: Seche Vite

This is a stunning and complex polish. It has quickly climbed the charts to become my favorite Kleancolor. These pictures do not do this polish justice. It is a lovely cobalt jelly filled with glitter. It's like a jelly sandwich in a bottle lol! There is a bit of dragging of the glitters (you can see the glitter is more concentrated on my tips) but that was largely my fault. I was too impatient and did not wait for the layers to dry completely. Two coats of Seche Vite were more than enough to leave this beauty smooth and glossy. 

Thanks for reading!

Kleancolor Holo Chrome!


Hello lovely readers! Last Friday night I headed out to my local swapmeet in search of Kleancolor Holo Chrome. I saw this polish on another blog (I'm sorry I forgot which), and instantly fell in love. The swapmeet is where I find all my Kleancolor polishes; they have a huge selection and they are only 99 cents each! Definitely can't get any better that that :) I almost went thorough the entire swapmeet before I found this gem. Here it is:

Base coat: Essie fill the gap!
3 coats of Kleancolor Holo Chrome
Top Coat: 2 coats of Seche Vite

Look at all that sparkly goodness! 

I know it looks different in every picture; that is because this polish looks different under different lighting. The last picture is how this polish looked on me the majority of the time. It looks more blue than chrome honestly, so I don't know why it is named Holo Chrome but there you have it. I have no idea why I didn't take a picture of this in the sun, oh forgetful me. This is INTENSE in sunlight; absolutely gorgeous. I loved it so much that I immediately put it on my toes and it is still there after 5 days. 

I am so glad I found this! 

As always, I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading!

Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild Once Upon a Time

Hello fantastic people! I have been without internet for the past week or so (gasp!!!), which is why I have not been posting. I hope the issue will be resolved soon, but in the meantime, here is a quick mani for you guys:


(the previous two pictures were taken in direct sunlight)

(shaded natural light)

This is such a gorgeous shade! It was put out in this year's Halloween display and I am so glad I picked it up. It only required three thin coats to reach opacity. It is a good idea to let each layer dry well before adding in the next layer, otherwise, you'll just be moving the glitter around. Two coats of Seche Vite were enough to make this smooth and glossy. A gorgeous addition to my collection! 

As always, I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading!
