NOTD: Orly Star Spangled

Are you doing anything fun with your nails for the 4th?

I think this shade would make a fabulous 4th of July mani.

Orly Star Spangled

The shimmer is absolutely gorgeous, both indoors and out. The above swatch is three coats topped with Seche Vite. Application was nice and even, and I applied three coats to up the opacity.

Disclosure: I was sent this polish for review purposes.

NOTD: L'Oreal Coral Starfish

L'Oreal Coral Starfish

Oh, I am loving this! The above swatches are two coats, and you can see I have a bit of VNL. I am not bothered enough by that to do another coat- I'm lazy!

Application was great- L'Oreals really seem to work well for me, and topped with SV, this dried great and is wearing well.

Disclosure: I have nothing to disclose, I purchased this polish myself.

Marine Scene

How gorgeous is this teal polish?!? Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Marine Scene. I used Essie's Fill The Gap base coat, 2 coats of this polish, and topped it with Essie's Good To Go top coat. My mani took all of 10 minutes, and I got the polish at Walmart for $2!!
What are some of the fun colors you are rockin' this summer?

NOTD: Revlon Just Tinted in Mystical

Revlon Just Tinted in Mystical

I'm just not sure what I think about this polish. I think I expected it to be sheerer? But it is actually pretty buildable, and the above swatch is two coats. I think it need another coat to even things out, but then it would have been even less sheer.... So why is this called a tint?

NOTD: Hard Candy Beetle

Hard Candy Beetle

Only it's not my NOTD anymore.... I had to remove it because I felt like I had bug wings on my fingers! :-)

Really, it's a pretty polish, and quite a neat shade. In some lights, it is purple, and in others, green. Just like a beetle's wings.......

NOTD: Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want to Have Fun

I recently ordered a few Lippmanns from Apothica, and this was the first one I wanted to try.

I think it is just gorgeous. This is two coats, and I continue to be impressed with DL polishes.... they apply like a dream, and seem to work well with my beloved Seche Vite. I also got I Know What Boys Want as well as Daytripper, so look for swatches of those soon.
