Polished for Days Grey Opal

Hi everyone! Apparently I've been wearing a lot of Polished for Days polishes lately because here is another one that I wore a few weeks back. This is another one of the polishes I purchased from the January 2018 Polish Pickup. The theme that month had been Crystals & Gemstones.

This polish is described as a light grey base with orange to green flakes, orange to green micro shimmer flakes, scattered bright aqua flakes and holographic flakes. Jenna had obviously used a grey opal as her inspiration.

This is one of those polishes that is really amazing in pictures, in the bottle and on a lot of other people. Just looking at these pictures I'm marveling at the complexity and beauty of the polish. I just didn't like it on me. It was the added coolness of the silver holographic flakes maybe but it seemed to fall a little flat to my eyes. Thankfully, I was able to destash it pretty quickly to someone who is sure to love it much more than I! I certainly do love the PFD formula though. This polish lasted several days on my nails with minimal tip wear and the only reason I changed it because I felt like a color change. I have many more Polished for Days colors to try out that I can already tell I'm going to love!

Again, thanks for looking and see you next time!

Polished For Days Rudolph

Hi folks! How is everyone doing? Having moved to the Pacific Northwest, for the first time since I moved to the US, I get to experience much milder winters than I used to in the Midwest. I am seeing pictures of my friends and family battling ice and snow storms right now and I feel so bad for them, and so happy for me! A couple of months ago, I also got a chance to go to New Mexico for a couple of days and did some hiking there. I knew I had to bring something flashy like Polished For Days Rudolph with me to capitalize on aallll that sunshine!

Rudolph was one of the holiday polishes from 2017, one of the Reindeer Games collection. I think I ended up getting most of the polishes from that collection and they are all so beautiful. Rudolph is a multichrome polish loaded with holo flakes that you can see in the shade picture down a couple of pictures below. It's officially described as having a glowing bright red base with a copper-green-red shifting shimmer and holographic flakes. In the rest of pictures below, I am trying to show you the shift in the colors of the shimmer as I angles my nails in the sun.

Although the hike itself was amazing as we went through the Canyon de Chelly National Monument, there were plenty of moments where you would have found me marveling at my nails and taking pictures of them instead of looking around like everyone else was!

Thanks for visiting and reading my little blog. See you next time!

Great Lakes Lacquer Spring at Prospect Park

Hey all!! When I was preparing my last post, I realized that I had completely neglected to post another Great Lakes Lacquer mani that I had worn some weeks back.  This is called Spring at Prospect Park and it was one of the four polishes created for Polish Con NYC 2017. I was smart enough to grab all of them when I could and I couldn't be happier with them. This is the first of them that I've tried so far.

This is a sky blue crelly polish with multicolored multichrome colorshifting flakies. It was very easy to apply and became opaque in two coats. It wore really well and I loved how bright and happy this color was.

I have a lot more GLL polishes to go through and hopefully will be able to show you guys more of my collection in the near future.

Great Lakes Lacquer Glass On Fire (Polish Pickup January 2018)


Hey everyone! I’m back today with another Polish Pickup Polish that I picked up in January of this year. That month the theme was Crystals and Gemstones and there were so many polishes that hit right out of the park! One of them that really caught my eye was this one, Great Lakes Lacquer Glass On Fire. 

NailaDay: Great Lakes Lacquer Glass On Fire

First of all, I love Mariah’s brand and all of her creations. I first ran across her polishes when I found her Polishing Poetic collection and I’ve been a big fan ever since. Also, she is based out of Michigan and that’s where I grew up so that connection thrills me as well.

This polish is flat out amazing. I love fuschia toned polishes and this is that and so much more. It had a multichrome base that almost feels jelly like and suspended within it are color shifting flakies. In the rest of my pictures, I tried to show you all the different shifts I could capture. Of course, as with any such polishes, the pictures only give a nod to how amazing the polish looked in real life. I received so many compliments on the days that I wore this one.

I do have to apologize for the small paper cut at my cuticle. I got it right before the pictures but the polish was too beautiful for me not to take pictures! Hope you guys enjoyed this post and I'll see you guys next time!

Tonic Polish Promise Of Spring

Hi folks! How is everyone!! I had a blast this past weekend. I was away at a bachelorette weekend for a cousin. It was a solo trip for me and although I missed my family quite a bit, it was really nice to have a couple of days to just relax and have fun with a bunch of cool women.

The polish I want to show you today was part of a limited edition collaboration with Femme Fatale last year. Each maker did two polishes and this is one of Tonic's contributions. It's called Promise of Spring. It's a beautiful bright pale green multichrome that shifts to a metallic greenish yellow on one end and a cool blue color on the other with a holographic finish. It looks amazing in pictures guys but I didn't like it much on my nails on its own. Maybe it's that it just didn't suit my skin tone very well but it looked kind of harsh to me. Needless to say, it's one of the polishes I made an effort to destash because someone out there wanted it more and would wear it better.

In the pictures above, you can see the blue at the edges of the nail. In an effort to make it more pleasing to me, I took that color and stamped with an open swirly pattern. I did like this quite a bit more. I love brocaded patterns like these.

I really do love the way this looks. I will have to remember that stamping does help improve my outlook on polishes that I don't like by themselves. Hope you guys enjoyed the post. Until next time!!

ShleeePolish Super Blue Blood Moon 1.0

Hello guys! I'm excited to share a new indie polish maker on the blog today! Well, she's not new in the indie world but she is new to me. She is a smaller brand with once a week smaller restocks. Her colors are amazing though. I am especially in love with her shimmers and this is one of the best! This color was so popular that she had revived it five times before putting an end to it. I nabbed a second bottle at the last iteration because it is just fantastic.

NailaDay: ShleeePolish Super Blue Blood Moon 1.0

I will show it to you here with the disclaimer that I should have probably applied three coats instead of the two you see here. The opacity is the best at three coats. The slight sheerness of the polish does lend itself beautifully to showing off all that amazing shimmer.

Polished For Days Glacier

Hi guys!!
I don't know how many of you are aware of a box called For The Love Of Polish but I have been getting it for a few months now and it is awesome!! There are two regular makers and the third is always a guest. Polished for Days has been a regular maker for a while and the other one used to be Illyrian Polish but she just handed over the reins to Pahlish. I have always been seriously impressed with the polishes and I am super excited every month to see what they come up with.

The polish I am going to show you today is by Polished For Days called Glacier and it's from the FTLOP box from January 2018.

NailaDay: Polished For Days Glacier

I've realized I'm not a huge fan of pale holographic polishes as previously seen in this post. I was apprehensive getting this polish in the box but I ended up loving it!

NailaDay: Polished For Days Glacier

Glacier is described as an icy blue linear holographic polish with micro holographic flakes and copper to red to green shifting shimmer. Perhaps it's the blue base color or perhaps it's the shifting shimmer but I thought this really worked for me. I loved wearing this in all lights but especially in sunlight.

I could post so many more pictures of this but I'm going to stop here. That's it for now! Check out For the Love of Polish on Facebook. They sell the beginning of each month and it's a preorder for a few days. I have many more beautiful polishes coming up in the future so thanks for looking and see you again, I hope!

Polished by KPT Ophelia’s Love


Hello all! Today I have another Polished by KPT polish again for you. The last one was a while ago here. It was the sister polish to the one I am showing you today, Ophelia's Love.

This is also a deep purple based thermal that in the warm state is very pale. The shimmers in here are of a much larger size and pink in color. They have a slight shift to green at an angle that is hard to capture on the photos. The first three are in the cold state and I will show the transition down at the bottom.

Here is the warmest I could get it with some transitions below. I'm surprised it still flips! It is a few years old.
