julep “lisa” with butter london “tart with a heart” on the tips
i was waaaayyy into the whole glitter french thing back in early october and early november so this swatch is waaay late! sorry guys, i thought i had posted this. maybe i did and this is just a repeat post. oh well! i didn’t love this one as much as others but it was still kinda cute
opi “man with the golden gun”
i’m finally posting this! omg this polish is freaking stunning!! this is over opi “mrs oleary’s bbq” and it looks so rich and luxurious! i’ve worn this several times since this manicure and i really can’t get enough of it!
orly “rage” and essie “a cut above”
i know i just posted a manicure similar to this, but i absolutely loved the rose gold tin foil look. this is 2 coats of rage and 1 coat of a cut above, and its one of my favorite manicures! i love foils with a glitter over top because it really looks like tin foil on your nails
zoya “raven” and sephora by opi “mr right now”
i absolutely love red and black manicures, and this is one of my favorite reds in my collection! mr right now is an awesome darker red jelly polish that is so squishy and glossy. i love it!
H&M “Miss Stone Heart”
absolutely amazing grey! i think this may be the best grey in my collection! this is just 1 coat!! i can’t put enough exclamation points in this post to say how amazing this polish is! its so easy to work with and pigmented and amazing.
color club “high society”
this is one of my favorite nudes in my collection. it really isn’t a nude, its more of a light taupe, but its gorgeous and looks so chic! this is 2 coats and perfect for work or an interview, or if you like taupe colors!
orly “rage” with spoiled “jewelry heist”
i had to top rage with a rose gold glitter to really make it look like i had molten metal on my fingers, or like a rose gold disco ball. jewelry heist is a rose gold chunky glitter, with yellow green chunky glitter pieces and blue microglitter in there as well. its super sheer tho! this is 2 coats of the glitter
IM BACK!! wow i was absent for almost a month! my bad! finals got a little bit out of control
but i’m back and i have a ton of manicures to show you guys!
first up, orly “rage” a cult classic rose gold! this is 2 coats and pure perfection
opi “lincoln park after dark”
one of my favorite polishes of all time. this is one of the few polishes that i’ve ever used an entire bottle of and had to repurchase! love it! its basically black but looks phenomenal on everyone. this is 2 coats!
i got this in my october julep maven box but it got put on the backburner to post while i had all those halloween manicures. i like this polish, its definitely right up my alley, but i have so many dupes of this. i have a polish that is literally almost exactly the same and its $1.99 from sinful colors, so the $14 price tag kind of makes me dislike this polish. this is 2 coats.
opi “vodka and caviar” and julep loose black glitter
i painted my nails with vodka and caviar, one of my favorite reds of all time, and then dipped the tips into a pot of loose black glitter. once i added a top coat, it kind of turned the glitter into a matte glitter. i loved the way it looked! kind of creepy and dirty but i loved it
zoya “sofia” with sally hansen “hidden treasure” on the tips
i fell in love with glitter frenches recently! this kind of started the trend for me. this is 2 coats of sofia, which is an awesome raspberry creme shade. then i added the flakie polish to the tips. i loved this manicure!
julep “alma” and opi “ski teal we drop”
i freaking love mustard yellow in the fall. i wish i owned more mustard clothing, but wearing it on my nails is something that always cheers me up! alma is the mustard color, and this is 2 coats. then i had to do an accent of teal because i think the colors look great together. this is 2 coats of ski teal we drop on the accent nail. i love this combo for fall!
