Lots n Lots of Nail Mail! with Hare Pegaus

Hello my friends!!!
Sorry so long since last post. I got caught up in work and pretty much life's daily grind. Anyhow yesterday was an awesome nail mail day :-) I got all sorts of goodies! Including my replacement bottle of Lynnderella's Stars in Her Eyes! I can't believe the difference between the good and bad bottle. It is such a bling bling polish! I am so in love :-D Also, I received my 3 Hare's I have been anxiously awaiting, yessssss!! They are Peagsus, Bisbee and A Positive, they look Gorgeous!!!  But Bisbee came without the Hare sticker :-( I also decided to try out an indie called Rainbow Polish. I bought Cupcake and Taffy. They simply look divine :-)  on top of all this, I got some of Opi's new Skyfall collection! Also, one of Dollish Polish soon to be discontinued colors Looking For Mr Big. An ingredient in Mr Big is making Dolly discontinue it. It is a Holographic polish, so I think it must be the Spectra-flair thats getting hard to come by or too expensive.
I choose Hare's Pegasus for my first mani out of the bunch :-) How dreamy the baby lilac color is in this baby. I could just Die! I did use undies for this mani although I am not sure if it really needed it. I choose Essie's To Buy or Not To buy, one coat. Pegasus, like all other Hare's lately, are so thick I have to add Seche Restore before I mani. Once I did that, I used two coats of Pegasus :-) One Gelous and Seche Vite. I love how the glitters stay so well suspended in this polish. There was no settling to the bottom at all. Also, I got lots of glitters on the brush, with a dip :-) On to the pics!!!
On the Left is the good bottle. This polish is so brite and blingy, I just Love it!!

These Hare's are just so dang beautiful!! Look at Bisbee, that color combo, Rocks!!! I messaged Hare about sending em a sticker for it. Hopefully I will be able to get one :-D

Hare Polish King of The Carat Flowers and Bury the Hatchetfish

I have a couple lovely Hare's to share with you today :-) I  received these babies two days ago! I was lucky enough to snag them on it's first, Oct.10th release on Llarowe. I love the blue glowing iridescence in this new collection. These polishes are even more stunning in person! During Llarowe's recent website launch, I was able to snag Pegasus, Bisbee and A Positive. I will post swatches of those, just as soon as I get them :-)
The first polish I wore was The King of Carat Flowers. I was so surprised with both of these Hare's, that the formula was sooooo unbelievably thick. It made me thick of Crowstoes. I did post on Hare's FB asking her for what she suggested I do, to thin it out a bit. I have some Sally's Polish Thinner. But I wasn't sure if I should use it or not. As hard to get and popular that these are, I don't want to take a chance on ruining them. A kind Fb fan responded to my post and suggested I use Seche Vite restore. Crazy enough, as many times as I have heard people chat of this, I dont own it. So I did order some on Amazon and will definitely use it to thin these out.
The same day I received my first order of Hare's I also received Opi the Man with the Golden Gun!!! It drives me nuts when it's like which one do I choose!! I really wanted to wear a Hare, but really wanted to wear my 18k top coat too! In my mind I thought hmmm King of Carat Flowers? That name sounds like it's fate to be used with my new gold top coat :-) :-) It didn't make the gold 'Pop'. But I think it did look very together :-) So first up is King of Carat Flowers :-) I didn't use any undies for this polish. What you see is 2 coats of Carat. I then topped it with the 18k top coat. Next up was gelous and then Seche Vite. On to the pics :-)
This polish has Gold Hexes and squares in it. But You can definitely see the gold leafs laying on top :-D



I was so excited to see this huge piece of gold lay on my thumb!! It really was a big piece of gold!! Love this top coat :-D

Another close up of my big piece of 18k :-D I love my ring finger in this pic. This mani looked really nice even in the shade of the bottle!! I love gold!!!

Took this pic right after opening the box :-D Love the packaging Opi did. I also adore the gold mirror finish those choose for the bottle. It's soo fancy <3

Next up is Bury the Hatchetfish. I experimented with a few different undies for this polish. Without a doubt my choose was China Glaze Jungle Queen. Jungle Queen is Opi's version of Chanel's Paradoxal. It really transformed Hare's murky brown Hatchetfish to a dark taupy, smoked purple. And omg! It made this polish come alive! There are so many sparks of different colors that came to life. It's truely a stunning site to behold. Unfortunately the camera wasn't picking up the strong purple in this mani. But I was able to capture a taste of the color sparks that were coming out. Starring at this mani, I was thinking hmmmmm I wonder how that 18k gold leaf would look with this? I bet it would look gorgeous!!! since my mani is complete, i might try that next time :-D 
This polish was a hungry glitter polish. So I did add one coat of Glitter Food. It also needed two coats of gelous. I then topped it off with Seche Vite. Like I stated earlier in this post, this mani was alot more purple in person. For some reason, the strong purple didn't pull thru in my pics. It definitely didn't look like the murky brown, which is the natural color in the bottle :-) I hope you enjoy this pics and I will tty next time :-) Hugs!!!

Smitten Pure Imagination and fun stamping

I saw a post from Llarowe when she is looking to choose a pic for her new website. I am entering the pic of the black kitty on my finger, from her new stamping plates :-) :-) I love and adore Smitten polish!! This mani was sooo sparkly, I am nuttso over sparkle :-D Wish me luck, friends!! Heres some pics I am posting of my Pure Imagination mani. Also another of a Halloween stamping job I did with Pretty and Polished Candy Corn. This tree is sooo freakn cool!!! Candy Corn is a temperature changing polish so it always appears to look differently. The polish goes from Orange to Yellow. It makes me think of the moon glowing in the background. Yes, this tree and the background stamping is also from llarowe's plates :-)






Enchanted's Dexter and Cranberry Cosmos

What a fun mani I did today! I had to share. I recently received my Falloween bottle of Dexter and wanted to do something out of the box and fun. So this is what I came up with. I used one coat of Cranberry Cosmos. I then added two coats of Dexter. I grabbed my newly acquired bottle of Lacquistry's 24k shredded and made a strip along the side of nail. I really loved the way it looked with the color of Dexter and Cosmos. The 24k is sooo super sparkly too :-) :-) I did my usual toppings, one coat Glitter Tamer, 2 of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite. On to the pics :-) :-)

Lynnderella Undead Red

After laying my eyes on Undead Red, I knew I had to mani up immediately! I am such a sucker for nice beautiful red. Add some glitter and ahhhh, Love it :-) I wasn't originally too excited for this what looks plain red. But, this polish is unique in the fact that it throws out a violet/blue sparks that are, To Die For! Needless to say, I am contemplating a backup bottle of this one. The formula is nothing short of perfection, as always. I find myself wondering what does she have in this stuff. No other polishes are quite like Lynnderella's. All the glitter laid out perfectly, no need for dabbling with the brush, love :-) :-)
I choose Essence and Go's Fame fatal for undies, one coat. I then applied two coats of Undead red. Then followed up with one coat of Glitter Tamer, Gelous and Seche Vite. The glitter in the polish was super hungry. If you don't have Glitter Tamer or Food, you definitely need Gelous to quench it. I recommend grabbling this collection on Ebay if you can get lucky to snag it. It won't disappoint you.


Grabbed a little pumpkin candle for a couple pics. Thought it would be fun to show some contrast of color :-)

Lynnderella Early Resurrection Halloween Collection 2012

I finally received Lynn's Early Halloween Resurrected Collection. This collection is Spectacular!! Totally exceeds my expectations. To give it enough credit I would say it is Epic of Stellar Proportions!!! Can't beat that !!! :-) :-) Where to even begin? I first took pics of the new polishes to compare the new formulas. I've only had the chance to swatch Stars in Her Eyes. Which I found out is going to be replaced due to the fact that it was accidently made with non-solvent glitter. I couldn't resist to do a mani with it anyway :-) So, here it is with one of Girly Bits new Halloween polishes called Fright Night. Fright Night is an awesome new Halloween polish. Love the black and red together :-) I used two coats of Fright Night. On top of Essence's plain black polish, also one coat. I then put one coat of Stars in her eyes. Topping were the usual one coat Glitter tamer, One coat gelous and one coat of Seche Vite. It was kinda difficult taking pics of this mani due to the fact that the sparkle from the glitter is everywhere, Bling Bling, baby!!! Love this combo and can't stop starring at my nails!! I can't wait to get the real version of Stars in her Eyes, because I bet it will be Bling-tacular!!!
But Regardless, my jaw was dropped as I unwrapped each and everyone of these precious creations. In the future, I will have lots of pics of mani's with these new polishes, let the fun begin!!!
So here is some pics of the polish bottles :-) :-) I also included a pic of a Lynnderella Halloween polish I snagged on a blog sale :-) :-) :-)
There is tons of pics in this post. I just went camera happy :-) :-)
