Girly Bits Apparition experimenting

I couldn't decide which Girly Bit's color to pair up with Apparition. So I figured I would do an experiment and pair it up with a variety of different Girly colors :-) :-) First off I must say how blown away I was to see this polish. I can't get over how beautiful this polish is. It's very ghostly :-) :-)  Theres so much going on with it. First off is the holographic bar glitter, simply gorgeous!! Then amongst the white shards and variety of hexes, is this glitter that throws these sparks of violet!! simply stunning!! You can really see the violet sparks in the bottle thats in all my pics. Apparition is the perfect name for this baby :-)
The Girly polishes I choose for the experiment is:
Denim Diva
CU Blue
Sailors Delight
Into the Night
Star Spangled
Purple Potion
Razzle Dazzle

All my fingers have different colors. So I will add caption to them all so you know what you are looking at. I had a blast doing this and I really loved all of them with Apparition. It's just so Halloweeny, Love it!!!

Into the Night with Apparition. How cool is this!! Sooo pretty :) :-)

Star Spangled with Apparition. Love :-)

This has been the most fun!! :-) :-) 

CrowsToes Purple People Eater

What a beauty this polish is!! This was the one polish, in the collection, I was least excited about. Man am I crazy or what!! This polish is soooo Gorgeous!! It might be my fav from the collection, seriously! I love how Lauri mixed the green in with purple. What a Spooktacular combo :-) :-D I must say that I was very impressed with the formulas in this collection. Normally her polishes are very very very thick and almost dry. I found the formula of this polish to be perfect! No dragging and perfect glitter laying placement with brush strokes! also, the finish was like glass when dry. Normally her glitters are always super hungry. Not even the case with this one. That Rocks!! I can't help to think, that maybe she has started changing her formula. Because of the complaints from people about how thick and dry they are. I am very impressed with this collection, formula wise. I really hope she keeps this up :-) :-) I was in shock, when the polish dried and my nail was so slick and smooth. No need for Glitter food. But, because I wanted to be sure to show off the insane sparkle in this baby, I did add GF anyway :-) 
 I started this mani with a white glue coat then followed with my ridge filling basecoat. Next I used 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in, Rock Bottom. 2 coats of Purple People Eater then followed. Because I always strive for my glass top, I did add one coat of Glitter food. Next was one coat of Gelous and Seche Vite. 
 It's really tough taking pictures of glitter polishes. It's almost impossible to show it's true glory. I did try very hard to take a pic that showed a hint of what I am seeing in real life. The glimmer and sparkle is sooo insane with this polish. I can't stop starring and I am sooo in love with it!! I was going to skip buying this one and I am so glad I purchase it. It turned out to be one of my favorite's from this Halloween collection. On to the pics :-D Oh! spotted a rogue piece of glitter on my ring finger after I took pic, Sorry :-O and plzzz ignore :-)

This pic I took from a bit of a distance. In hopes that you could imagine how insane the sparkle is, from this polish. 


Nail Mail!!!

What a fun past two days I've had :-) :-) Look what was waiting for me to grab out of mailbox :-) This happened right after Llarowe launched the Girly Bits Halloween collection!! I can not get over how gorgeous Apparition is. The pictures really do no justice to how it looks in real life. That bottle is glowing and sooo insanely gorgeous!!! It's funny how cameras make polishes look so flat and not as sparkly as it is in real life. This is just a quick post to show you how fun it is to get a Girly Bits package :-) :-) I know her shipping to the US is expensive. But if you figure how much cheaper her polishes are compared to Llarowe. Even with the expensive shipping charge it all evens out. So I see it as the same price either way. If you buy more than two polishes from Pam, it really pays off cause her polishes are cheaper :-) :-)
 I love the Orange tissue paper she used. Also the cute little bag of Candy Corn :-) Those extra touches make you feel special! Thank You, Pam for the Lovely packaging!!!

Enchanted's I am the Walrus with Dollish Polish This Is Halloween

I had a kick a** mega polish haul yesterday!!! check this out

I was so giddy with Joy to see these precious babies arrive yesterday!! My I am the Walrus has been on backorder for weeks now!! SO I am tickled to see it and it's backup finally come home :-) Right away I had to start painting with it. This polish truly blows me away. The duo is so strong and as always with Enchanted, the formula is perfection!! These pics show two coats of it on top of my school glue coat.

I then also had to use one of the new Dollish's. I was very curious of what This is Halloween, would look like layered on top. I think it worked out very nicely. Dollish's formulas are also perfect!! The finish isn't hungry it's perfectly smooth!! But because I want my glass finish, I used one coat of Glitter Food, Gelous and Seche Vite. I am such a sucker for the color gold. I really love the way this mani turned out :-) :-) :-)

Dollish Polish Toxic Avenger

Today I am wearing an oldie but soooo Goodie. Toxic Avenger is one of the prized polishes in my collection. I think everyone has heard about it. So no need to talk about how awesome it is, cause it just Rocks!! It is the best duo/Holo combo I own, hands down. I got lucky some months ago, getting this polish from Dolly. She is sooo sweet, I really adore her and her polishes. They are all simply AhMazing!!! This polish along with other duo/holo chromes are near impossible to photograph. Tried the best I could to get some cool pics. These are the pics I liked the best. Please forgive the smudge on my index finger, oops!!
 I did get lucky and scored all of her Halloween polishes!! Should be arriving any time now. Will post pics as soon as I get.
 Have a Lovely Day!!!

Enchanted's Witchful Thinking

I can't even begin to tell you how awesome and stunning this polish is. Just take my word and BUY IT!! If you can stalk and catch it in stock, it will be worth it's weight in gold! I am in awe at the beauty this polish beholds. Formula is nothing short of perfection. The Holographic glitter will pop out at you when you least expect it. It's sooo beautiful :-) When I opened my package yesterday with this collection, my jaw dropped at the beauty Chelsea has created. She's a genius!
I recently bought A England's Jane Eyre. When I saw Witchful Thinking and Jane Eyre side by side, it was a match made in heaven, perfect! SO for these pics I used only one coats of Jane and two of Witchful. Followed by two coats of Gelous and one Seche Vite. I didn't need to do two coats of Gelous. But I did because of my always wanting a glass finish :-) :-) Here's some pics to share with you  !!

Crowtoes Hell Hath No Fury and little bit of glue chat

Wow!! this polish is AhMazing!! It has this insane color-shifting going on. Also, I noticed this blue/violet sparks that keep zapping out of it. I seriously can't stop starring at my nails! I really gives Props to Lauri for this one. You can seriously see she doesn't throw glitter together and she's done. There is just so much going on with it. There is definitely alot of depth to it as well. I didn't want to use black for undies, although I am sure it would be gorgeous!! I get soo tired of people always swatching over black :-( So, I looked for just the right match of color. That is a process I go thru when looking for the perfect undies for my Lynnderella's. SO, I finally found the exact right color, China Glaze's Riveting!! I swear they are a match made in heaven! hell Hath no Fury is Red but does have that strong orange to it. I like using undies cause it saves on your good and expensive polishes.
 The formula this Crowstoes has, is unlike another other Crowstoes I own. When you first see the bottle, you will be amazed seeing the formula shift ll around as you tilt the bottle. Meaning, it's almost perfectly formulated. Needing no thinning. I did my first mani no problem. But after I got was getting into my last few fingers, I did notice it was starting to want to be thick. But I think alot of it has to do with the thickness of the glitters in this polish. I do love how she doesn't get skimpy with the glitter. I mean one dip and you got glitter for half your nail! But there is alot of base in it, which evens it out almost perfectly!
I did one coat of Riveting. Two coats of Hell Hath No Fury. I then followed that with one Glitter Food, Gelous and Seche Vite. Oh!! I have been doing the white school glue now, before all glitter main's. It works wonderfully!! I have experimented a bit with it since I last chatted about it. I was thinking the trick to a perfect glue removal was keeping your nails buffed. But after many mani's later, I realized that adding that little bit of water to thin it was the problem. I find it removes much better if I leave the glue in pure form and not mess with it at all. It does make painting it on a bit more challenging. But it's not that bad and isn't a problem for me. But I do always follow the glue with a nice basecoat before I start the colors. Have you figured out any tricks with using the glue?

See those blue/purple sparks on my nails? and in the bottle. They are every where on your nails. They are every where on my nails. It's hard capturing that stuff on camera. But I can't stop starring at my nails, seeing those sparks flying, Love that!!

More blue/purple sparks flying on my nails :-) Love

See more sparks in the bottle :-) :-)

Crowstoes VooDoo

Love!! Now THIS is Halloween!! Best Halloween polish I've tried so far :-) The holographic glitter is to die for!! The formula was thick, as all Crowstoes are. But it's not dried out, like alot of them seem to be lately. I didn't thin it out at all to do this mani. Idk if I even want to ever thin it. I love the assortment of glitters in this. There is sooo much going on here, love that!!  Lauri definitely put alot into making this one and it shows!!
 The purple I used is NYC Pure Orchid. The Hallo orange is Sinful Colors Clementine. I definitely prefer this polish over purple. But it does look awesome either way :-) I used one coat of Glitter Food, Gelous and Seche Vite. I have an obsessive nature to always have a glass finish. SO on to the pics :-)
