I have been wearing all my holos lately. What's not to love! They dry ridiculously fast, don't need a topcoat and they make rainbows! 2 coats of TTYL no topcoat. This is a great color on me lol :D Pretty pinky peach.
I haven't done a sunshine picture in a while so I thought I would include one today. Personally I don't think it's any better than the flash shot above. I need to practice my sun shots since I haven't really done it with the new camera. That's all for today, will end it appropriately: TTYL!

Steph from DSK Jewelry and I did a swap a few weeks ago you can see her post here.
She sent me a couple of necklaces and some adorable purple bow earrings! Darn my hair for covering up the earrings. I need to dye it dark again badly, my roots are like 2 inches lol. Since I took this picture I mixed my own blend and dyed it a very dark brown, whew!
I'm wearing a purple crystallized swarovski heart on a heart chain, so pretty!
Since you couldn't see the earrings here is a close up shot. The bow is so cute! Is this too zoomed in on my ears? lol =x
Here is the other necklace she sent me, I told her I liked pink, purple and blue so she made one with all 3 colors! Thank you so much Steph! I need to take pictures of my lashes now and send you some comparison shots, it's been 6 weeks or so now.
So anyway check out Steph's site to see all her gorgeous pieces. :)
I felt like I did not do Untamed Luxury any justice in my review so I took a stab at taking a better photo of it. It's so weird VNL photographs but in person you can't see it.
I cut my nails short so I haven't been taking any pictures! I have some long due reviews I need to type out so that should buy me time while the nails grow out. Have a great day!

Hi guys, I'm late to the party but here it is. They all sound intriguing and glittery!
All That Glitters Is Gold With Misa Cosmetics’ Spark My Interest Collection
Ladies, put some bling on it! Whether you’re hitting the clubs in South Beach or sipping martinis in a Manhattan high-rise, you’ll need nails that glimmer as bright as the surrounding lights. Misa Cosmetics’ latest collection, Spark My Interest, pays homage to the glitz and glamour of nightlife and romantic intrigue—because nighttime nails should never fade into the background. The six brilliant hues are saturated with shine, thanks to the thousands of glittering particles packed into each polish, guaranteeing that nails remain the center of attention all summer long.
Winter 2010: Spark My Interest
Date Nights to the Twilight: You may never know what to wear on date night, but this ebullient royal purple will lay the foundation for the perfect look, whether you choose a flirty mini or laid-back denim. Wow him with your glittering personality (and nails!), then party from twilight till morning light!
Red Pumps at the Nordstrom: Self-conscious? Never! Slipping into a pair of red stilettos is instantly empowering for any woman, and this ruby-red sparkle polish will stir up the same sense of instant sexiness and look-at-me self-assurance. Match your favorite siren red Louboutins with this high-octane shade for confidence that won’t quit.
Spark My Heart, That’s a Start: A glimmer of interest is easy to notice—he can just follow the flashing of your fingernails as you take his hand and lead him to the dance floor. This coral-pink hue lets him know that your heart beats strong, but he still needs to work hard to keep you interested. A bold demand, sure, but this shade is for women who know what they want.
Pink Bling On My Ring: You can’t leave home without the right accessories! A girl’s gotta have jewelry, but this shocking hot-pink glitter hue will vigorously compete with the gemstones that decorate her fingers. Like bejeweled ornaments, nails will shine bright and accent any outfit just right.
Wink, Blink, Let’s Get a Drink: Skip the awkward getting-to-know-you phase and get right to the flirting! This glimmering deep fuchsia will let him know you’re interested from across a crowded room—and will have his eyes glued to you all night as you work your charm. It won’t be long before he leans in and asks, “Another round?”
Glitz, Glamour, Smile for the Camera: Let’s get candid: Nails will be continually camera-ready with a couple of coats of this sparkling playful plum. Picture-perfect nails are guaranteed as this polish’s glitter catches the light of the paparazzi’s flashes. Evoke the sophistication of Old Hollywood and say “glam” just before the shutter snaps!

3 coats, no topcoat. I have posted about this one before, but I love holographics so much I had to post another! What I love about these from the Kaleidoscope Collection is they fare well even in dim light. I can see rainbows indoors without any sunlight.
This last picture the color washed out a lot but rainbow is still there! I put a clear topcoat on 1 finger (not pictured) and the rainbow disappeared so definitely avoid a topcoat if possible.
It looks silver but there's a pink/lavender hue to it. Sadly these are discontinued but you still might be able to find some stock at etailers.

I'm so hooked on glitter frankens! I do need to play around with colored bases more tho. I thought I would name this one NYFW for fashion week!
Blue, red and green glitter. The base is Wet n Wild Hallucination I think (the clear one with holographic square glitters).
A close up look. I love making glitter frankens it is so much fun! Now if only we could figure out how to thicken up clear polish lol.
On a sort of related note, this me wearing a Fashion's Night Out 2009 t-shirt courtesy of Lancôme. This was taken almost a year ago so sorry for the bad pic! I didn't go but I get to bring a little fashion night out home with me lol.

3 coats no topcoat. I didn't wait long enough between coats so some spots are kind of gloopy and uneven. Personally I think I like this better layered. This is such a unique and colorful glitter, there's big hex glitter in silver, yellow, green, pink, orange and blue. Then small square glitters too!
I was wearing my cookies and cream franken so why not throw in Happy Birthday glitter to the mix? Well it overwhelmed my "cookies" part but it looks so cool! A party in a bottle indeed lol. I want to try this layered in a french mani.
Man I hate Blogger if my pictures aren't a certain ratio I can't choose the extra large picture option and it squishes it up. So you'll have to click to enlarge this one, sorry!

Punk Polish, 2 coats with Seche Vite topcoat. A bright neon pink, it does dry matte so you will need a topcoat to make it shiny. My bottle needed some thinning it was a bit thick. I do wish these came with balls inside.
Chi Chi polish 3 coats with Seche Vite topcoat. Rosy pink glitter in a somewhat milky base, very interesting. You can't really see the milkiness on your nails but it does help camouflage your nails if you wear it alone.
I wanted to combine the two polishes for a complete look and here is what I came up with. 1 coat of black creme (CC Where's The Soiree?) and I just freehanded 1 coat of Chi Chi diagonally across each nail. When that dried I used my art brush to paint the line with Punk Polish. Over black you can see that Chi Chi Polish isn't in a clear base.
I wore Ms. Hautie for 5 days before I got a chip but I wanted to see Chi Chi Polish layered over a metallic grey first. I love this color combo! What other colors would Chi Chi look good with?
You can get these and all the other Eyeko products on their website HERE.
Zoya will now ship you a nail spoon for any of their shades that you can place over your nail to see the actual color before you buy it. Then when you go to buy any polish or nail treatment from their website the amount you spent on the spoons go towards your purchase price! This is a very clever idea, here are the details from their press release:
