~Fresh Coat~ Hard Candy Black Tie Optional.....

Thursday, March 07, 2013

 Hey Everyone!!

Two Fresh Coat posts in a row?? Why, yes!!

I ran up on the new Hard Candy polish at Walmart and when I tell you, it was sooooo hard not to go completely HAM and buy them ALL. Hard Candy did this one. I can see that now these polish will be the stand outs of their entire makeup collection. I love how they have channeled some of the nail industry's hottest trends in polish: glitters suspended in cremes, glitter overloads, chromes, and micro glitters.

I got six polishes the first round, so buckle up.:)

First up.....Black Tie Optional....
 Black Tie Optional looks like a black creme or jelly with white and black glitter BUT its actually black and white glitter overload suspended in a CLEAR polish. So, you might need a opaque base. I used Kleancolor Black and Kleancolor White.....
The glitters are CRAY CRAY. Hexagons, big and small, black and white, speckles, long pieces...all this for $4? I think, I'll faint now.......If  this was easily is a "prestige" polish brand, you are looking at $8, $9 polish. Get yo life!!

I used a dabbing technique to get as much glitter off the brush. The brush picks up the glitter but regular polish strokes will not get it off.

This my thumb with two coats of "dabbing" with no base, so it is possible to get a opaque look with no base shade.

I think just wrote this whole post holding my breath. I make no sense, sometimes. That's what happens when you are a polish addict. The excitement is crazy, I say!!

~Fresh Coat~ B. Nichole Nails.....

Hey Everyone!!!

She's back!! My polish MOJO!! I know I said that in the last fresh coat post, but the spring beauty season is just bringing in new colors, formulas and surprises and I'm excited!

Today, I'm featuring nail art by B. Nichole Nails. Two of the biggest trends in nails for 2013 are custom nail art and temporary nails in the form of quick artificial nails and quick nail applique. B. Nichole Nails combines both: custom, fresh nail art and the option of having it done on press on nails for a quick fashion fix.

The owner of B. Nichole Nails, Bianca, sent me two sets of nails. Here, I'm going to show you one of my favorites of the two....

 I love the color scheme of bright blue, a grape-y purple and citron yellow with the trendy chevron design in black. The compliments the day I wore this set was off the hook!! People, first, wanted to know, who done them and then they couldn't believe they were press ons. lol!
Day two of this set, I trimmed down to be a bit more wearable for my lifestyle. I didn't lose any of the beautiful design feel, they look great even shorter.....

I wore these nails for about three days, which it about to life of any press on. If you don't wash dishes twice a day or more like me:(, you can wear them even longer. These kind of quick nails are great for weekends, weddings, dates, special occasions, gifts, the list goes on!!

You can purchase pre- designed or custom made sets at B. Nichole Nails on Etsy...Click HERE to check out the store and order....Here are some photos of couple of her designs..

So what do you think? What design would you pick if you were ordering a custom nail design set from B. Nichole Nails? Let me know in the comments!!

Disclosure: This products was sent to me for review. I was not paid to do this post and all opinions are honest.
