Colorphase nail polish

Sorry I haven't posted lately but I did want to share with you a polish I purchased at a rite aid. It comes shaped like a barbell with polish color at one end and clear top coat on the other. You paint your nails with the polish and once dry you are supposed to use the clear top coat to make designs. The brush on the clear coat is long and thin like that on the nail art brushes. The color I chose was a silver purple. Once dry and by using the top coat it turns an eggplant purple. The polish color seems to go on thick but dried pretty well and without problems. You do need to make sure the color is very dry before using the clear top coat. I do recommend these polishes for a different and fun look. The store carried about 6 or 7 different colors and the price here was $4.99. Have a great day!!

Saran wrap nails

I tried this the other day and found it so easy to complete. The look is fun and unique. I painted my nails with sinful colors Cinderella. Then when that was completely dry I used wet and wild mega last On a Trip and painted one nail. While that nail was still wet I used a small piece of balled up plastic wrap.
I gently blotted the wrap on the nail. I continued with the rest of the nails. Each nail ends up slightly different and that's what I like!
Also, I'd like to do a blog based giveaway soon since right now I only have 4 followers so please help spread the word! Thank you and happy painting!
Have a great weekend.

I purchased 2 of the china glaze prismatic chroma glitters. I tried them on one nail each. They are very pretty and go on very smooth. There are so many colors present and when you go out in the sun they appear even prettier! First pic is of full spectrum. A pinkish/purple again with a wide range of colors. Second pic is prism. Blue with a range of other colors. Let me know what you think.
