Simple shimmer gradient

Gradient with OPI Congeniality is My Middle Name with Grape, Set, Match
Here's a quick post of a manicure I wore recently. I was trying to cover up the tipwear I had on OPI Congeniality is My Middle Name, a great berry pink shimmer. I thought about a few glitters, but ended up sponging the tips with OPI Grape, Set, Match, a purple shimmer.  I think the color combination works really well, although perhaps my pictures aren't the best.

Quick post: Lóreal He Red My Mind

Lóreal He Red My Mind, sun
Here´s a color I wore around Christmas with some cute stickers on it. Unfortunately, only these pictures turned out. I figure it can´t hurt to share, though.

Lóreal He Red My Mind is a nice candy red shimmer polish. I picked it up for a $1.00 at Big Lots a while ago, and think it was well worth the the price! ;)

Comparison: Sinful Colors Holiday Rebel vs. China Glaze Party Hearty

Oh, my poor neglected blog. Here’s a post I promised you quite a while ago that I have neglected to deliver. Hopefully it’s still in time for you to pick up the polish in question if you are still interested.

Here’s a comparison of the recent Sinful Colors holiday release, Holiday Rebel, to the legendary China Glaze polish, Party Hearty.  Party Hearty was limited edition a few years ago and is extremely hard to find nowadays.

Here are the main differences I could find between the 2 polishes. The red glitter in Party Hearty is different from the red glitter in Holiday Rebel, where the red glitter is more dense.  The red hex glitter in Party Hearty is more tomato red, while the glitter in Holiday Rebel is a bit more silvery. Speaking of silver, Holiday Rebel has a some silver hex glitters in the mix that Party Hearty lacks.   Party Hearty has gold microglitter while Holiday Rebel doesn’t.  Holiday Rebel has more green microglitter than Party Hearty. 

That's about it, folks. Holiday Rebel was part of the Glitz and Glittered display from Sinful Colors this year and should still be available in stores.   If you want to see a few more pictures, jump!
