China Glaze "Innocence"

Hey Everyone!
So I know that I haven't blogged in awhile. I have been meaning to post so many new polishes. I have even took the pictures of each but I have been sooo busy! haha Anyways this post is the color that I have on today and is the perfect color that suits my mood at the moment. I didn't want anything to dark or shimmery or sheer, I just wanted something elegant, simple, and clean on my nails.

So here it is! China Glaze's "Innocence".
I really love the consistancy and the color of it. The color is a very simple creme. It is a light sort of pink/nude color that looks absolutly perfect for my skin tone.

 The picture actually looks exactly like the color in real life! haha Sometimes the pictures can be slightly off in color, but this one is perfect! :) I also purchased this color from Sally's as well as the post below. The prices for polish there are sooo good! haha I think they are around 4-5 dollars for the China Glaze polishes! How can you pass that up! :) Anyways I am just loving this color!

 Hope you enjoyed!

China Glaze Black Diamond

Hey everyone!
I recently picked up this color and I really love it! haha It's funny because the post below this one is saying that I never wear dark polishes, and here I am posting another dark polish! haha I have just been really into dark colors. I think that they look clean (if their are no chips in it) and edgy.
This color I got at Sally's for around 5 dollars! I thought that was a great deal! If you want discount China Glaze, go to Sally's!
Anyways, about the color! haha
 I wore this color for Halloween and it was a great excuse to wear dark polish (but I think that I am going to wear dark polish now!). The color is black with silver shimmers in it. The shimmers are so fine that you cannot even see them from far away. :)

This picture is from far away, so you can hardly see the shimmers! The polish has a very thick consistency. Mostly all of the China Glaze nail polishes that I own are very thick! If you smudge it, you have to take it off or else it will not look good. Some nail polishes that I have, if I smudge it, I can go over it and it will look like nothing happened. But the China glaze polishes aren't like that. They are very thick and cover well. I still like the colors from them anyways! haha The first coat was very sheer. It was like a clear-black with shimmers in it. The second coat was much thicker and covered very well! I believe I did three coats though because I wanted it to look better than the bottle! :)

 Above is another picture of the Black Diamond color, but you can really see the shimmers up close!
This color is also perfect for the holidays (which are coming soon! So excited haha).
I am really liking the dark colors but as I write this post I have nothing on my nails! haha I am letting them breathe, which is always good to do once in awhile! :)
Hope you enjoyed!

O.P.I Holiday Glow

Hey Everyone!
I am the type of person who NEVER, I mean never wears dark nail polish. I sometimes use black in some nail designs that I do, but never just plain on my nails! To tell you the truth I was always like "Oh, I can never wear dark polish, it will just make me look whiter." (because I have very fair skin) and "I am not the type of person who can rock dark polish." But then I saw this color and I had to get it! I am pretty sure that it is from O.P.I's holiday collection from last year but I still love it just as much!

At first when I saw this color I totally thought that it was brown! (doesn't it look brown?) But if you really look at the bottle, you can see that it is really purple! Not like a purple, purple. But a deap plum color. It has lots of flecks of gold shimmers in it and I actually like that because if it didn't have those shimmers I think that it would just look Plain FLAT! haha

When I purchased this color I thought that it would be a good color for my tips of my nails and just a good top coat color to add a little pop to a base color. But then when I applied it, it was very pigmented! It took about 3 coats to get my nails to really look like the bottle.

I am really liking this darker color on my nails! This color is helping me work my way to wear just plain black on my nails. But I am still not quite ready for that plain black color! I hope you all enjoyed!

My First Post! O.P.I Koala Bear-y

So I finally did it! I made a blog for my love of nail polish! Before I started youtube I wanted to make a nail polish blog. But then I discovered youtube and got addicted to watching beauty videos so I created an account and started to make beauty videos and put aside my polish blog. Then just recently I searched my favorite nail polish blogs and got back into that kick of reading all of the posts! So I decided to finally create a Polish Blog! I am still going to continue making beauty videos, but now I have a place to blog about my LOVE of Nail Polish!

O.P.I Koala Bear-y:
Since it is now fall, I decided to post a fall-looking color. This color has been pushed to the back of my nail polish collection for so long and I never really used it. Then when I found it (again!) it looked like the perfect color for the start of fall.

At first when I saw this color (A long time ago, haha) I thought "What a pretty red!"  and then realized that it was actually a pink! The color is a slight bit darker in person and more red-ish looking. I took this picture last night because I was so excited to make my first blog post, but I think that I will have to start taking the pictures in the morning when the lighting is better.

 This color is actually a cream polish (which I love!) so it applied so smoothly. It only took about two coats to really get the color looking like the bottle. It is a pink with red undertones. All day today I was looking at my nails and thinking that they really did look red, but it really depended on the lighting. 

I am really liking this blog thing! More posts to come! :) TTYL!
