Blue Sugar NOTD

Hi Guys and Dolls!

I know that’s it’s a bit of a trend of the moment (really when isn’t this in trend?) to have one accent nail of a different color, so I wanted to share my current cream & glitter Mani! I’ve been curious about the Milani one coat glitter polish for a while now, and I’ve got to tell you- it’s pretty awesome! It’s not too hard to remove and it has a matte finish (the pictures here have a glossy topcoat). As for the “one coat” claim- eh, I’m not sure. I’d say with a base color, yeah, these do the trick with one coat. Maybe they would also be one coat with just a base coat. I don’t know, I’m a nail polish amateur. As evidence see my poor application and dry cuticles. Hey! I use hand sanitizer maybe 20 times a day (and no I don’t have OCD; I’m a makeup artist, so it’s necessary)

What’s YOUR current mani?

    I’ve got oil slick nails right now, but I’m about to go change my polish. I used Sokolum’s steampunk nail tut, but used Wet n Wild’s Gray’s Anatomy instead of the gold color on some nails, and on others I used Hologram from China Glaze’s Tronica collection. Looks pretty bomb, you should try iiiit.
    Also, that pink cream needs to be in my life.

      Now I’ve got PureICE Mint something something over China Glaze Jolly Holly, and for the accent nails I used Hard Candy Beetle on my ring fingers, and one thumb has WetnWild Gray’s Anatomy.

    So cute! I’m currently rockin’ Aqua by Sinful Colors on all of my nails. I’ve been doing a lot of colors/designs lately and decided to keep it relatively toned down for a while. However, I think soon it might be time to bring out the crackle polishes… with some glitter…. (:

    Currently I’m sporting a finger paints color that I can’t recall the name of. >_< I just bought it and I didn't look at the name. It's a very pretty kinda sapphire shimmery blue. I'll take pics.

    I’m wearing OPI Dim Sum Plum, with a single layer of Show it and glow it (fromt he burlesque collection) over top. What can I say? I love my pinks, and especially pink glitters!

    Just got my nails done with OPI’s “It’s totally fort worth it”…lol. It’s a soft grey with a fine pink glitter. Neutral enough for work and gorgeous shine in the sun. They had another one that was the same grey with a blue tone to it. I might have to try it pretty soon.

    Heya 🙂 This is the chick with bright purple and pink hair who was in your store today. It was nice to meet you in person! I’ll definitely be by again.

    And to make this relevant to the post, Zoya Charla!

      Oh hello! I’m glad you told me you knew me- meeting my subscribers makes my my whole day! I’m sorry I couldn’t talk more but you know….Saturdays! You hair is off the chain, what do you use!? I need to refresh this week (stupid fading purple) and you hair was AMAZING! Come see me any time, I’ll be happy to help you & chat a bit 🙂

      As for Charla- I have Orly version of that color and it’s one of my faves!

      Oh PS- you’re really pretty.

        The purple I use is Pravana Chromasilk Vivids in Violet. It’s a professional grade and it’s kind of a pain in the arse to find, but if you can track it down it’s totally worth it (it stays that color for over six weeks with almost no fading at all – craziness).

        I’ll definitely pop by sometime not on a weekend! It’d be excellent to chat more.

        PS – Awww, thank you 🙂 Right back atcha!
