Candeo Colors Divebomb Jelly Sandwich

When I received Candeo Colors Divebomb in the mail I knew immediately I wanted to do a jelly sandwich.

For those who do not know what a jelly sandwich is, when it comes to nails, it's when you apply a color, like a cream, then add a glitter or flakie, and top it off with a jelly-like finish nail polish.

For my jelly sandwich I used New York Summer Hot Sky Blue. New York Summer has some awesome jelly polishes!

This next photo looks a bit off on my skin color, but I edited it to show the depth of the glitter in the jelly sandwich.

I applied two coats of NYS Hot Blue Sky, then two coats of Candeo Divebomb, and finally, one coat of NYS Hot Blue Sky.

This mani lasted me quite a while, for more than 4 days wear! The formula on both of these polishes were excellent!

Chanel Nouvelle Vague

Nouvelle Vague is a gorgeous turquoise nail polish color released by Chanel in their Summer 2010 collection.

This color applied like butter and was perfected to my liking in three coats. Now I can't decide whether I want to stamp over this or do a glitter gradient!! So many choices!! I may just leave it as is in all it's glory and simplicity.

HITS Cutie Pie and Jazz MATTEFIED!!!

As you may have seen my posts from the past couple of days I have added and added to my HITS Cutie Pie manicure! Well today, I have another addition to it!
Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love

Whenever I do duochrome mani's it's almost second nature for me to add flakie and matte to it, it just brings out so much character to the nail polish!!

HITS Mari Moon Cutie Pie

Recently I posted about receiving my Brazilian swap package. In that package was a beautiful nail polish that goes by the name Cutie Pie!
HITS Cutie Pie
Cutie Pie is part of the Mari Moon set made by the brand HITS. Cutie Pie is a gorgeous multi chrome shimmery nail polish.
*WARNING: Very picture heavy!!*

As you can see this polish is just gorgeous and has many shifting colors, but the main colors being purple to blue.
The application was a little tricky and balding was an issue, but I was somewhat satisfied by applying three coats.
Stay tuned...because tomorrow I am adding a *BAM* to this mani!!!

Impala Army - Na Mira 3D

This past March I received a wonderful and glorious swap package from my friend Lú who lives in Brazil. She was able to fulfill my Brazilian polish dreams with just one box! Of course I still have some gorgeous Brazilian nail polish, but she definitely spoiled me!
Now I present to you....
Impala Army in Na Mira 3D
Na Mira 3D is such a gorgeous charcoal scattered holo nail polish.
It is really hard to compare this holo. It isn't linear but it's not the scattered that you see in China Glaze Kaleidoscopes....its BETTER!
I applied three coats to get full opacity, but two would have been enough.
Look at that gorgeous bottle shot!!!
I was surprised that the holo even showed in the shade still. It even had a little bit of a color shift which was very unexpected!
Here is a picture taken with the flash. I swear I can look at it ALL DAY!!
I just want to publicly thank Samantha for setting this swap up, as well as thank Lú who made this magic happen! I hope to do another swap soon!!!
