China Glaze Ray-diant

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Ray-diant from the Pristmatic Collection to share with you all! Ray-diant is a green glitter with larger pieces of silver, pink, blue, green, and orange glitter. The formula for this one is pretty much the same as the other Prismatic glitters. It's fairly thick, but applies great. I used two coats!

China Glaze Prism

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Prism from the Prismatic Collection to share with you all! Prism is a dense purple glitter with a blue shimmer and larger pieces of green, orange, blue, pink, gold, and silver glitter. This polish was on the thicker side, but it still applied pretty good, and I used two coats.

Also, in some of my last Prismatic Collection posts, some of you were asking how I remove these thick glitter polishes. To remove any type of glitter polish, I use the foil method. To do this, I put polish remover on a cotton swab, place it on my nail, and then wrap foil around the nail. I leave it on for about 10 minutes, and once I remove it the polish just glides off. It's time consuming, but it works really well!

China Glaze Liquid Crystal

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Liquid Crystal from the Prismatic Collection to share with you all! China Glaze describes Liquid Crystal as a "bright blue holographic with purple tint dusted with silver, gold, green, pink, and orange." I don't really see the holographic that much, but other than that, it's a pretty accurate description.

This was a little thicker than more glitters, but it still applied alright. I used two coats.

Born Pretty Nail Striping Tape Review!

Hey everyone!

Recently, Born Pretty sent me some of their nail art striping tape to try out and review. I had never used striping tape before, so I wasn't really even sure how to use this or what to expect. I tend to do a tape manicure when I want stripes on my nails, but that always takes forever, so I was really excited to see how this would work out.

The striping tape that I was sent came with 12 different colors. Since this was my first time using a product like this, I wanted to keep things simple, so I chose to do just one pink stripe on a neutral colored nail. (The polish I used is Essie's Body Language)

I really loved how this looked! The tape was really shiny and went on fairly easy. The only problem is that after about 2 hours, the tape started to peel off at the ends. (This should be noticable in my pictures) I applied one layer of top coat after applying the tape to try to prevent this from happening, but apparently it didn't work. Over time, the peeling kept on getting worse, so I ended up just taking it off.

I gave my Aunt a few colors of this to use, and she said that hers lasted days without peeling. I'm thinking that maybe I should have used a thicker top coat, or just applied more layers of it.

Despite the problems with peeling, I still really liked how the tape looked at first, so I'm definitely going to try it out again. Does anyone know of any tips or tricks that will keep the tape on without peeling?

Born Pretty offers a variety of nail art supplies. Also, they offer free shipping world wide.

China Glaze Polarized

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Polarized from the Prismatic Collection to share with you all! Polarized is a silver micro glitter with large multi colored glitter pieces. (pink, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red) This polish looks awesome! It does dry matte though, so a couple coats top coat are necessary. This was pretty thick, so it ended up being completely opaque in 2 coats.

China Glaze Full Spectrum

Hey everyone!

Tonight, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Full Spectrum from the Prismatic Collection to share with you all! Full Spectrum is a light pink color that looks like a lavendar shade in some lighting. This polish has blue, pink, green, silver, and gold glitters in all different shapes and sizes. (China Glaze described this polish as having holographic glitter, but I haven't been able to notice any) I used three coats.

Something New with stripes!

Hey everyone!

I'm currently blogging from Florida! I'm here with my Mom on vacation for about week. We ended up just booking this trip on a whim a little over a week ago, and now we're here staying at a resort on the beach. It's so pretty!

The pictures I have to share with you today are from a nail look that I actually wore quite awhile ago. The polishes I used are Sally Hansen's Something New from the Diamond Strength line, which I have a separate post on that you can view here, and Sally Hansen's Black Out from the Xtreme Wear line. To create the stripes, I actually did it the hard way and used tape. I taped off each of the lines on my nails one at a time, so this probably took me over an hour to do.

China Glaze Sun Worshiper

Hey everyone!

Today, I have some swatches of China Glaze's Sun Worshiper to share with you all! Sun Worshiper is a very bright neon yellow. This yellow kind of resembles the color of the cheese powder that comes in a pack of mac 'n cheese. Being that I am so pale, this color does not look that great on me. This would look awesome on someone who is a little bit tanner or who has a darker skin tone.

This polish was really sheer! I ended up having to use five thin coats in order to make my nail line not be visible. Even though this required a ton of coats, it still applied really smooth and wasn't streaky. Since this is a neon shade, it dries matte, so a top coat is a must!
