Hi everyone! I have a huge post today so let’s jump right in. I had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite indie polishes that I showed on the blog in 2015 but I finally got it down to 20…p.s. *phew!
Good morning all! I have a super pretty polish for today’s post from ALIQUID Lacquer, called Old Dog, New Tricks. This is AL’s anniversary polish to celebrate her 2 year anniversary in business.
Old Dog, New Tricks is a “holographic base with magenta and blue microflakies, fuchsia microglitter, and real silver flakes.”
I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat for my photos.
The formula on this is a little thin but not too runny or uncontrollable. The flakes and microflakies didn’t stick up, it’s a smooth laying polish. This polish can also be layered, which Polish Hound did a nice job of showing on her blog!
I’m so glad I picked this polish up – it truly is unique. If the name is anything to go by, might we be seeing some “new tricks” from ALIQUID Lacquer soon? I certainly hope so!
Hey and good morning all! Continuing my series of “What’s In My Travel Bag”, I thought you might be interested in what I carry with me for my nails during a trip. I’m assuming you (like me) are starting your trip already having done your manicure.
For short trips I have just a few requirements: 1) whatever I bring has to fit in a small makeup bag 2) whatever I bring has to truly be a need. So let’s get started, shall we?
Good morning! Are you ready for a fantastic Friday? My boyo doesn’t have school today, so I’m hanging out with him. I’d better hurry this up before he gets bored with the game I’m letting him play on my phone. 😉
Awhile back, I bought a set of 6 polishes from ALIQUID Lacquer that were exclusive to the website Gloss48.com. Gloss48 rounds up the best in indie beauty, including nail polishes, and sells them at first at great introductory prices (which is when I bought my set), then offers them later at regular prices. Let’s take a look at the six! *All swatches shown with Wet n Wild Matte topcoat or Wet N Wild Shiny topcoat (or both).*
Good morning, wonderful readers! Today I have a fun nail art look to show you, inspired by the polishes that were just sitting around on my nail desk.
*Programming Note* I had quite a few polishes & nail art looks I wasn’t able to show you in 2015, so I’ll be trying to get those posted over the next couple of weeks.
I’ve used OPI Alpine snow with Mentality Black Holo (matte) on my pointer finger, ALIQUID Lacquer The Skeleton’s Ring with Mentality Sailor on my middle and ring fingers, and Indigo Bananas Grave Importance on my pinky.
I’m honestly not sure what I was going for here, but I like the end result. What do you think?
