Silver/Subtle Holo Nails

I've always been a fan of holographic polishes, but I have yet to buy one. The closest thing I've got to one is my China Glaze Fairy Dust, and I absolutely love layering it over silver. Add a pretty pink nail sticker and you've got the nails I did yesterday!

 Here are some blurry pictures to show the holo!

REVIEW: China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat

Last night I purchased this with my China Glaze haul and I am extremely impressed. Here I will discuss my opinions on this product.

SCENT: A lot of bloggers have been talking about how the smell is nauseating and will give you a headache. To be quite honest, it doesn't smell that bad. Yes it is a strong smell, but it smells just like regular nail polish, but only a very little bit more powerful.

DRYING TIME: This is amazing! It dries my nails was faster than the Orly  quick dry drops, and I can only imagine how great it would be if I combined the two.

APPLICATION: Not too thick or thin, and the brush is the same as in their nail colours, so it gave even coverage.

PRICE: Same as their nail colours. They are usually $5.99, but I have a Sally Beauty Club Membership so they were $5.49. (Canadian Currency)

Overall this is a great product and I would recommend this to everyone!

If I forgot to add anything or if you have any questions, feel free to comment below!

China Glaze Haul!

L to R: Liquid Leather, Strong Adhesion base Coat, Emerald Fitzgerald, fast forward Top Coat.

My camera is acting weird so I couldn't really get a good picture of the nail polish, but I'll do my best to describe it. Okay, so last night I went to Sally Beauty to look for the new Awakening collection but they didn't have it, so I decided to buy some other stuff instead! So first off, I got the base and top coat because the other ones I own cause my nails to peel. I will probably do a review on the top coat in a bit as well. I really didn't want to buy a black nail polish but I did anyways. There is nothing really special about it, but it's kind of sheer. You'd probably need two coats of Liquid Leather to make it opaque, as it is a jelly base. I also got Emerald Fitzgerald from the Vintage Vixen Collection. It's a beautiful deep teal with tiny green flecks that sometimes reflect a turquoise colour. It's a wonderful colour for fall and you only need one thick or two thin coats to make it opaque. i think that sometime soon I will layer emerald Fitzgerald over Liquid Leather and see what happens. Thanks for reading!

eBay Haul!

Okay, so a couple of weeks ago I ordered some nail polishes off of eBay, and they arrived about a week and a half ago. I got Orly Space Cadet and Galaxy Girl, and Nubar G188. The two Orly's are from the Cosmic FX collection, and are amazing! Galaxy Girl is a dark metallic purple loaded with blue, almost turquoise foil glitter, and in the sunlight has a hint of pink. Space Cadet is a little harder to describe. It's gold, pinkish purple, and green. Finally, G188 is my first Nubar product, but I haven't tried it yet. The reason I bought it is because it looked like a dupe to Sally Hansen hidden Treasure. Anyways, here are some more pictures after the jump!
