Sinful Colors – Glass Pink

Posted by manicuremania on November 8, 2009

I’m really not into sheers lately, but I quite like Glass Pink a lot. It’s nice and subtle, but it’s also seriously shimmery. No hope of opacity, of course.

I wanted to fancy this up a bit though so I added french tips in Sally Hansen VIP Pink, and it was a fail. VIP Pink is too sheer so I had yucky buildup on the ends of my nails from so many coats of polish.

Sinful Colors – Forever Pink

Posted by manicuremania on November 6, 2009

sinf pink for

Pink Forever is your standard Barbie Pink. I have others that I like better.

sinf pink for 2I added a coat of Amethyst Sparkle too, but it completely wouldn’t show up in any picture I took. It didn’t really show up on my nails either, so then I covered it with a coat of Copper Shimmer, which was much better. However, it wouldn’t show up in the pictures either.

Borghese – Rossi Apple

Posted by manicuremania on October 28, 2009

borg rossi
YAYAYAYAYAY I love Rossi Apple. It’s an orangy pinkish red, and the shimmer is gorgeous! I bought two Borghese polishes at Walgreen’s the other day, and only because because they were in the clearance section for $1.99. I am NOT going to pay, what, $8 for a drugstore pink? That is insane.

I think I like the brand a lot though. Coverage is good, the brushes are nice and huge and rounded at the bottom, and the bottles are very nice and dignified looking.

Here’s another bottle pic cause they’re adorable!

China Glaze – Strawberry Fields

Posted by manicuremania on October 20, 2009

I love China Glaze shimmers!!!! So much!! As I said about Grape Juice, which is from the same collection, if they would agree to make these in every color, I would buy them! This is so loaded with gold shimmer, and I like that it’s a darker pink instead of a light one.


DSC08231dfgIn other nail news, I’m so happy with the patch on my index finger!! I think I’ve just gotten used to using them better, because this one has been staying on for 1-2 weeks with no problems, and hasn’t been giving me any issues at all.just might be able to save this nail!!!

Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink Rocks!

Posted by manicuremania on October 12, 2009

Well, Rockstar Pink is one of my beloved Xtreme Wear polishes, so of course it’s pretty darn awesome. Extremely dense pink and blue (and maaaaybe some silver, it’s hard to tell) glitter in a clear base. When layered over Zoya Moxie, it looks like a birthday party to me – very festive and happy! It’s like confetti in a bottle.

Zoya – Moxie

zo moxie

I’ve been drooling over Moxie for a really long time. It’s a really nice bright berry creme. I don’t have that much more to say about it but I don’t want that to imply that it’s not an awesome polish…because it is. Awesome. Very.

Diamond Cosmetics – Pink Paradise

Love, love, love. Is it pink? Is it coral? I don’t know, but I love it.

Pretty accurate swatch. It is much brighter IRL though. This is a very bright color. It’s so ME! I’m really liking the consistency of the Diamond polishes – I like runnier polishes personally.

The flash  picture is color accurate, the no flash picture is not at all.

On another note, I am going back to my old lightbox. These pictures are rotten!

China Glaze – Naked

Posted by manicuremania on September 25, 2009

Whew, I’ve broken my polish losing streak! I was getting sick of sounding so negative in every post, so I pulled out a polish I’d been saving because I knew I’d love the color. Well, OK, I actually decided to wear it because it exactly matched one of the colors in my outfit today, but that doesn’t sound as good. I don’t EVER match my polish to anything I’m wearing, ever, but today it just seemed right! I wonder if most people do though?

This is a medium, almost hot pink, with a bit of coral to it. It’s a really nice color, but the application wasn’t as great. Well, more the consistency, really. I had to use four coats and I still had VNL, so it’s a high maintenance polish – it takes FOREVER to let four coats of polish dry enough to apply the next coat! This has a lot of very subtle shimmer.

I have been sooo boring lately with my nails! I haven’t done a bit of Konading or nail art, or anything except slapping on polish! I am going to try hard to find the time to do some nail art this weekend.

Fingerpaints – Pink Dawn

Posted by manicuremania on September 16, 2009

fp pink dawn

Here’s another that I am just not enjoying – Finger Paints Pink Dawn. I also used this one for my failed tire tracks Konad, and it works ok when there’s something else on top of it to distract me – it’s a pretty color. But It was streaky and draggy, and actually I just don’t think the color works very well on me. I only bought this because it was on clearance at Sally’s, actually.

Sinful Colors – Bali Mist

Posted by manicuremania on September 16, 2009

2 bottle photos this time to try and show the duochrome:

sc bali mist 2

sc bali mistI’m not a fan of Sinful Colors Bali Mist. It’s a bright purply pink with a faint, lame duochrome that mostly only shows up in the bottle. It’s also entirely sheer. 3 coats couldn’t banish visible nail line.
