Heart’s Desire

Another throwback to July, here’s another one of LeChat’s Mood Changing gel polish line. I definitely need to get more colors of these!

Perfect Cute, Short Nails

If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Nailpolis you’ll remember these nails from a few months ago. They’re done using LeChat Mood Changing gel polish, which I’ve posted about before. I love using these mood changing polishes, I swear they’re endlessly amusing.

This mani is done on my friend Katie, who already had beautiful, clean cuticles I barely had to do anything to. Only two coats of this polish gives great coverage, and it applies thinly without running.

Sinful Colors “Tempest”

The color quality on this picture isn’t the greatest, but it’s pretty accurate to the color of the polish in real life. It’s a very pretty springy cream lilac.

Don’t mind my cuticles, this was before I was in school and knew how to tame them! Sinful Colors is one of my go to colors since it’s cheap and has a quality formula. They’re always coming out with cute new colors that I can’t resist passing up whenever I’m in Walgreens or somewhere and spot the new collection displays.

Finger Paints “Lots of Luau”

I can never pass up the clearance bins at Sally’s (or anywhere that has nail polish!) and this color was one of those purchases. How cool is this lime green packed with glitter though?

Here I cheated a little bit; I didn’t really feel like taking the time to put on a whole new set of acrylics but my nails were super short, so I just used glue on full nails and filed them to the shape I wanted. Shown here is two coats of “Lots of Luau”.

Kleancolor “Love for Pudding”

Pudding scented nail polish, really,  pudding scented. Vanilla pudding maybe? It definitely smells like desert. If only all polish had delicious scents! “Love for Pudding” is a really pretty creamy light pink that makes you think of frosting.

Shown is two coats with no top coat, the polish has a nice glossy finish by itself.

Kleancolor “Green Grass”

A polish true to  it’s name, “Green Grass” is the color of your lawn on a perfect summer day. I love bold colors, and this shade of green is beautiful.

This creamy polish applied like a dream- opaque in two coats as shown in the photo. I didn’t use a top coat, or more importantly, any base coat. Greens have a tendency to stain your nail if you don’t use a base coat, and this one didn’t leave any stain on my nails or cuticles after removing it. As you can see, it’s a pretty high gloss even without the top coat. I’ll be bringing this one back around for St. Patty’s day for sure!

Kleancolor “Diamond Pink”

Back to going through my Kleancolor collection! Here we have “Diamond Pink”:

“Pink”… Maybe it was pink? I don’t ever remember it being very pink. I feel like maybe at some point in time, the glitter was more of a pink color, and the clear base ate away at it and turned it more of a rose gold/flesh tone color. This one has a pretty strong abrasive smell to it, so maybe there’s some chemical difference that caused it. I’ve had this polish for about two years, so you never know. Shown in the photo is two coats with no top coat; and it would probably take four or more coats to not have any negative space between the glitter showing.
