Metallic Gradient

24 Nov

First, I hope you had a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving holiday! I know here, our bellies were stuffed and our hearts are full. I’m very thankful for Salvation, for my wonderful husband, our family and many, many more that would take up the whole of this post. But, amongst the great things, I am thankful for the little things like morning kisses and reading as a family, for the cooking together and the laughter that always floats in the air. And! …I am also thankful for polish! πŸ˜‰

Today’s mani is a first try for me. I’ve been wanting to do a metallic gradient forever! For the colors, I chose China Glaze’s “Harvest Moon” (Hunger Games collection) and Orly’s “Rage”. Both very glitzy-glam colors and both very sparkly. I first sponged Harvest Moon at the top halves of all my nails, followed with Rage at the tips and blended the two in the middle. It was a bit hard to tell if I’d blended them all since there was so much sparkle. πŸ™‚ But I do like the outcome! After clean up, I topped with one coat of SV. I hope you like it! It’d be great for a Christmas mani! Have a blessed week! Thanks for stopping by for this very overdue edition of Lacquer Addictions! -Sara



Funky Nails- Champagne Wishes

18 Jun

Happy Monday to you world! I want to share the other (and final) polish in the Funky Nail mini-collection calledΒ the LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS. I really like her glitter creations. Her last one was Caviar Dreams and was just as fancy and classy as this one is. I love them both and would like to thank Funky Nails for providing me with the opportunity and her polishes to swatch. This has been so much fun! Ok. Back to the glitters! Eeks! πŸ™‚

This lovely gold glitter is called Champagne Wishes. Minnie, from Funky Nails, describes it: “Champagne Wishes is small gold hex glitter with gold micro glitter in a clear base”. And i love it! I layered this on top of two coats of Sinful Colors’ “Black on Black” which is THE black for me. lol. And I loved the outcome. I did break 2 nails today during laundry so thus the black. πŸ™‚ And now… Champange Wishes!

HI!!!!!!!!!! I am back!!! πŸ˜€ thank you for your patience. I’ve been crazy busy and uploading all the pictures again takes some time to do.
I’ve still been painting my nails, just not as much due to the craziness of our schedule lately. We’ve also been getting ready for my little sister’s high school graduation. πŸ™‚

This mani is awesome! l Not boasting in skills, but the color! I love this color combo! It reminded me of Iron Man. lol. The base is Sally Hansen’s “Golden-I” and I stamped using BM-210, with Orly’s “Naughty” which on the gold showed up much lighter than bottle or regular application. I hope you like them!
