Nubar Reclaim swatch + mani!

I finally got to trying out my new Reclaim by Nubar polish! This is officially my first non-glitter holographic nail polish and I am in LOVE!!! This green is soooo pretty. It doesn't look like much when you're indoors but wow, does this baby sparkle in the sun!
Here's a closeup of the holo effect.
To make it a little more interesting and springtimey, I used my new Konad plate M78 and added some butterflies =)

Gold with black fishnet mani!

Hey again! I unfortunately chipped the hell out of my rainbow leopard print nails so I decided to take it off and try a new look I've been wanting to try. I've seen a lot of people do the black fishnet design on top of gold, so I did that along with a slightly off black french tip.

I used:
Konad M73
Black- Black Out by Sally Hansen
Gold- Midnight Kiss by China Glaze

Goodies about to come in the mail :)

Hey all! I thought I felt like updating this morning but I didn't really have anything to SHOW you guys... Anyways, last night I did a little online shopping and bought 3 more items to add to my nail polish stash. I ordered konad plates M78, M79, and I also ordered Nubar's Reclaim, which is a really amazing green holo! That would officially be my first holographic nail polish so I can't wait!

I've been really absessed with some holo's lately. Pretty much every day, I try and find deals on China Glaze's OMG collection, China Glaze's Sexagon. Gosh's Holographic, and OPI's Standing Room Only. All of those colors are absolutely amazing and I envy anyone who owns any of those =P

Anyways, here are some pics of the things I ordered :)

Here's what I used:

Pink- Gilda by Zoya
Orange- Annie by Zoya

Purple- Senorita Bonita by China Glaze

CG Bare If You Dare swatch & mani

Hello, all! I was eyeing this polish by China Glaze called Bare If You Dare for a while and finally got my hands on it through Amazon! I don't have any peachy colors and when I saw it on someone else, I knew I had to have it.

It's such a nice color. It reminds me of peach sherbert or sorbet and has a subtle gold shimmer in the light. The application was a bit streaky but ended up going on nicely with 3 coats. I also have a layer of Seche Vite on top.
Indoors, indirect sunlight 

This is such a nice color! It's perfect for spring and summer and I see myself wearing this out a lot. Definitely a must have if you don't own a color like this already!

I wanted to Konad it it up so I thought it would be fun to do a fishnet tip with some flowers :) For some reason I haven't used the fishnet design yet so I guess it's about time! The sun was setting so this is not the best picture! I'll probably take a new one tomorrow and repost!

I added Essie's Matte About You on top of it! I love how it came out!
