Daring Digits Popped!

Hey polish people!

Today I am wearing Daring Digits Popped over Color Club Poptastic! The weather is starting to warm up here in NB (even though it just snowed two days ago....) but this manicure is perfect for this sunny day!

This has got little circular glitters in rainbow colors and bigger rainbow coloured shard glitters! When I say rainbow I literally mean rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple :)

This is two coats of Popped and the glitter distributed nicely, I pushed some of the big ones around on the second coat to get the look I wanted. I like how this turned out, a different take on rainbow glitter. I like the randomness of the shards and I like the ratio of shard to little glitters!

Look how bright and happy this polish is? I am a huge fan. I am so happy to have this polish in my collection. It is a great colour for summer.

Something I love about Daring Digits is the size of the bottles and also the price. This is "mini bottle" and is 9ml! That means this will actually last me a long time. For reference a full size aEngland is 11ml, and a full size HITS is 8ml. This mini bottles are such a nice size. Her full size bottles are 16.5ml! That is a BIG bottle! Standard bottle size (OPI, CG, etc) is 15ml. Full size bottles retail for $8, and mini's for $4. The quality is great too. It is a great bang for your buck! Also her CS is great. When I had a question about my order, I had a response the very next day! She also runs some great sales, with reasonable shipping costs, even to Canada!

What do you think of this mani?

a-England Avalon! Swatch!


How did everyones weekend go? I went to the market and we finally saw a bit of good weather here in NB!

Today I'm showing you a-England Avalon from The Mythical Collection. Super gorgeous red toned purple shimmer. The purple shimmer has got a bit of red sparkle too. It has that quality that makes it super glowy. Incredibly pretty with a great formula. This is two coats!

I love it! What do you think?

Enchanted Polish Wish Me Good Luck Swatch


I know, I know.. Been a couple weeks since my last post. I'm back though! Hi!

Up to bat is Enchanted Polish Wish Me Good Luck. This is from the Love A Lot of Glitter collection, and its Care Bear themed! This one has got a clear base with lots of little sizes of green glitters and then black squares, bars, and huge hexes. I think there are also a few blue squares and iridescent glitters in there too.

It was a little thick but applied nicely enough. I put two coats over one coat of Elevation Torres de Paine. In theory, I should love this... green? black glitter? big glitter? iridescent glitter? It should be in the bag. And don't get me wrong, its super funky and cool. And pretty in its own right. I just am not feeling it as much as some of her other polishes I suppose. I guess I am not totally in love.
