piCture pOlish blog fest - Fairy Floss

Hello nail polish fans! I'm pleased to participating in Picture Polish's Blog Fest. Over 60 bloggers from around the word are participating and featuring all of PP's shades today!! I think it's a great way for a nail polish company to show the public what they got. I know I LOVE being able to see the polishes on the nail before purchasing. Really, all nail polish companies should have on the nail examples, don't you think? Plus it's nice to know what other nail polish fanatics think about the formulation and colour too. So with out further adieu here is the shade I am reviewing: Fairy Floss.

This polish is a very pretty pink. It instantly reminded my of OPI Done Out in Deco - mostly because I don't have a ton of pink polishes. But when I pulled DOiD out Fairy Floss is darker and more warm toned. Fairy Floss was easy to apply and this is 2 coats which is super awesome for a light pink. Generally, you need to coat light pinks on in 3 or 4 layers. So opaque in 2 is great! Overall, I like this polish. I would have to say the colour is not overly original but it's a lovely pink cream and it has a great formulation.

Pop on over to Picture Polish if you are interested in Fairy Floss or if you are interested in any of their other polishes. I currently own a bunch of the Ozotic Pro polishes that they sell and also their Denim. They are very nice to deal with and their polishes are fabulous!

Hey everyone! Did ya'll miss me? I've been MIA, busy with life. Less time for nails! Shocking and terrifying at the same time! Ha! So this bad boy has been quite a lemming for me and I got it in a swap a while back. I thought it was beautiful in the bottle but I didn't get around to trying it because I was swimming in other beautiful untried polishes. (Such a hard life!) Oh this polish is marvelous! It's very similar type of polish to China Glaze Atlantis. They both have such a beautiful depth. I really love this polish but I didn't end up wearing it long because it chipped the next day. Horrible. I'm not sure if it's just chippy because it's a glitter or what. I find glitters very chippy. I have noticed my nails are not so great at the moment. I'm nursing my babies so my nails and my hair is in super bad shape. Oh well. It won't last forever. Them babies are almost a year. How time flies.

Look what came in the mail. It's been a long wait thanks to the postal strike. Plus I was out when they first delivered. Plus I was too busy to apply any nail polish. BUT LOOK! These are so beautiful. These are hands down the most beautiful holographic nail polishes I own. They are a pain to apply but if you use aqua base there is no problems at all. It is so worth it. It's funny because they are not holo looking in the bottle.

Even when they are first applied to the nail and still wet it is dull but they sure do dry up into amazing-ness. I am so pleased. Hooray! Here is my first mani.

I was expecting the colour to be more nude. It looks like a perfect light peachy pink on me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this colour. Very pleasantly surprised! The rainbow is so gorgeous and it shows up in all kinds of light. Meaning that you don't need to wait for full sun, although it is best and brightest in sunlight. Whooa LOVE!
