Snowflake Manicure

 Hi everyone!!
Hope you're enjoying this Holiday season so far. This mani is an entry for Nail Polish Canada's Holiday nail art challenge 2016. I was almost too late to submit! I always have such a hard time with challenges...trying to come up with something awesome......I kinda failed to come up with something original (I reaalllly did try!) so snowflakes it is!! 

I used Cirque Tanzanite for my base..which is an amazing scattered holo that applies better than the majority of polish' I own. I stamped with Cirque Don't Forget the Cannoli and Cheeky Plate K.
Head on over and cast your vote for your fave mani!

Femme Fatale But A Dream

But A Dream

I have the very delicate But A Dream thermal here and I love it! For those of you that want total opacity..this might not be the polish for you. It has the least amount of color shift from cold to warm but for some reason i'm perfectly fine with that; I can also see layering this as an option as well. It's a really pretty aqua jelly with intense pink's NOT shy. This is a thermal that I won't mind when the thermal pigment stops transitioning because I like both colors..they're very similar. Unlike some other ones that have a clear or gold warm state..not too fond of those unless they have something else going on. Anyway...onto the pics!

I really loved how this mani turned out!! I sponged on some Femme Fatale Two Days Wrong (another amazing flakey thermal), stamped with Messy Mansion plate 42, Konad Purple and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Co-Bolt Blue. I honestly didn't want to take this off!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Polished by KPT Being in the Pink

Being in the Pink

Hmm...where to start..this is a perfectly lovely thermal polish and if I hadn't seen online swatches making it look super bright and vibrant and i'd be pleased..but I did and I can't. This feels like no matter how many coats you apply the color doesn't build up..watery almost for lack of a better term. It really wasn't very saturated at all and I found the same thing with Do You Wanna Fanta. It's difficult because the first thermals I used were from Femme Fatale and those were highly pigmented and saturated. Don't get me's a jelly formula but usually even they can build up coverage, Ok..enough..onto the pics.

Well..there you have it. I do like the polish but if i'm reaching for a thermal i'm likely going to go for the more pigmented one..well in any polish for that matter. I will say that the color changes easily on this one and that's always nice! I also really loved Same Fall, Different Beginning and Mars Escapade from this brand so i'm hoping for more like those and less like this!

Thanks for stopping by!

Femme Fatale A Fortune Teller's Charm

Another amazing thermal from Femme Fatale! Sophie, the creative genius behind the brand does thermals like no other...well any polish really! This thermal from The After Light Gala Collection is so dazzling!! It has a really nice formula even though it's packed full of stuff..and I mean packed. Onto the pics!

This is a thermal polish from the Valentines Sweet Secrets Trio 2016 and she's so lovely!! I'm not typically a fan of red or berry tones but this is just magical so I couldn't help but love it. The shimmer..OMG the shimmer..flawless formula! Never mind my drooling over here..i'll get onto the swatches!
