Yellow Skittle Nail Art

{Press Sample}{Purchased By Me}

A lot of different supplies went into making today’s yellow skittle nail art! I don’t usually wear yellow, but there is something about Dermelect Lazy Days that I just love! In addition to Lazy Days, I used Dermelect Fant-a-Sea, Mango Bunny Polish Yay, Mundo de Unas Mint, Polished Vino nail vinyls, and a Pueen Stamp. The MBP and Dermelect polishes were press samples and the other supplies were purchased by me.

New Releases from Pretty Serious Cosmetics

{Press Sample}

Pretty Serious Cosmetics sent me three new releases from their “Stop, Collaborate, and Listen” polish collection. I first fell in love with Pretty Serious for the Killer Fangirl collection and I haven’t been disappointed in a polish of hers yet! Today, I have three gorgeous new selections. (Scroll to the bottom to see who collaborated on each polish!)

Pretty Serious Iktsuarpok

With such a unique (and hard to spell!!!) name, I just had to do a little googling. I found out that it is an Inuit word with no English equivalent. Apparently, it’s the feeling of anticipation when you’re waiting for someone to come visit and you keep checking outside to see if they’ve arrived yet.

Iktsuarpok is a gray polish with silver flecks. Perhaps reminiscent of stone, or a driveway where your friend might drive up to your house. ;)

Pretty Serious Kashmir

Kashmir is a stunning deep purple with lighter purple shimmers. Some of the shimmers are quite big, verging into flakie territory.

Pretty Serious Herald of the Skeleton War

Herald of the Skeleton War is a green jelly with blue and purple glitters. Some are even flakies! There is something quite unique and interesting about this one. I have to admit that I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

Pretty Serious Aqua Coat

The Aqua Coat is a thicker top coat that is intended to help satisfy thirsty glitters. It doesn’t dry particularly fast, so this is one you’ll want to keep just for those top coat eaters!

Thanks again to Pretty Serious Cosmetics for sending these beauties my way! Which one is your favorite??

L’Oreal Masked Affair and Totally D’accord

{Purchased By Me}

I know, I know, I know. I’m super behind the times. I stumbled into Bartell’s and right in front of me was L’Oreal Masked Affair. I couldn’t not buy it, right?? I mean, it’s like a staple in everyone’s polish collection these days!

I couldn’t bring Masked Affair home without one of her sisters, so I also got L’Oreal Totally D’Accord. I can’t tell if this one wants to be a texture polish, or if the glitter is just super gritty. I did end up doing a top coat because if this is meant to be a texture polish, it’s a very, very fine texture. The silver glitters sit in a black jelly base. I did three coats for full coverage.

Enchanted Polish Pegasus

{Purchased By Me}{Affiliate Links}

For today’s nail art, I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Black Out, then I did two coats of Enchanted Polish Pegasus which is a crazy beautiful golden/green flakie.

Once dry, I used a design from the Cici&Sisi red collection and Mundo de Unas Black to stamp.

NYC Velvety Fuchsia

Velvety Fuchsia is an awesome bright pink. It applied smoothly and makes a really nice statement lip!

NYC Smooth Beige

Smooth Beige is for sure a great nude. I rarely (read: never) do a nude lip so I won’t get a lot of use out of this one, but the texture was lovely and I like the quality of the lipstick.

NYC Red Suede

Red Suede gives you a classic red lip! I’ve actually already worn this one multiple times!!

I would recommend picking at least one of these up if you see them in your store! There’s no need to pay super high prices for lip color when these beauties are available! Thanks again to NYC for sending me the NYC Satin Matte Lipstick collection!
