Jior Couture - Peppermint Bark

Hello, my lovelies!  Today I have Peppermint Bark from the Holiday/Winter collection from Jior Couture.  I had to prove that this beauty can be used for Valentine's Day manis as well!

How gorgeous is this polish, for realsies?  Creamy white base the shimmer...small red glitter...medium square red glitter...large circle red glitter...DROOL!  Because of the size of the large circle I did have to fish for them, but, hello?  Is it not worth the effort?  YUMMMMM!This is just 2 coats of Peppermint Bark.  I added a couple of heart shaped studs to my pointer and covered it all with a coat of Seche Vite.

Now for some more fun stuff!  I decided with Valentine's Day approaching that I would make some goodies to share with friends...this one is a pendant.  It was my first try coloring in the image and let's just say that I got better as it went along!  LOL!  Don't mind the reflection on the glass either...that's my shirt you can sort of see in there.  Another owl!

Next up is another pendant, though completely different in look and feel.  I painted the inside of the glass tube instead of filling it with something.  I plan to add a heart charm to go along with it.

Lastly we have a magnet.  This one was on my fridge when I snapped the photo.  I love this and am considering making sets of these with different images and selling them in my Storenvy Shop.  Would you buy something like this?

So, do you "lacq" it or would you leave it?  MWAH!

Duh Nail Polish - Champagne & Caviar Dreams

Good morning, polish fans!  Yes, I'm back again in 2 days!  WOOT!  And no, I'm not ill!  LOL!  Today's goodie comes to you from Duh Nail Polish.  Danyl is awesome and hails from Las Vegas.

I'm sharing Champagne & Caviar Dreams with you today.  I saw this color on Instagram and went on a search for it.  It's gorgeous, totally and completely!  First, can we talk about the bottle this came in?  I love the shape of the bottle itself and the brush is to die for!  It made application a dream!

It applied smoothly and without any trouble.  No fishing for the few larger glitters either.  I used 4 thin coats with 1 coat of Seche Vite on the top.  Each coat dried pretty quickly or I wouldn't have been able to do 4 coats...I'm seriously not that patient!

So much better in person, this polish!  What say you?  "Lacq" it or leave it?  MWAH!

Dainty Digits Polish - A Broad Spectrum

Good morning, lacquer fiends!  Today I want to share a polish from Dainty Digits Polish's Pause 4 the Cause Collection called A Broad Spectrum.  This polish is dedicated to those in support of autism awareness.  My sweet nephew has autism, so I knew I had to have this polish!
This polish is a super light blue base with medium red and yellow hexes, small yellow and blue hexes, red, blue and yellow shreds, micro blue bars and micro red glitter.  Everything is matte and comes together nicely.  It applied smoothly and evenly too, which is also a fishing for glitters!  I used just 2 coats.

On my accent nail I made puzzle pieces since that's the logo for autism awareness.  I saw this on Pinterest and it looked easy enough.  Easy is the key for me since I can't draw!  The light blue and yellow are from Klean Color and the darker blue and red are China Glaze...everything topped with a coat Seche Vite.

Would you sport this polish for the cause?  Do you "Lacq" it or leave it?  MWAH!

Orly: Sparkling Garbage

Long time no see polish friends!  I know I haven't been around for a while, but I'm HOPING to get back on track.  I do IG very regularly, but it's so hard to keep up with the blog.  I'm going to try though!

This post is dedicated to the awesomeness that is Orly's Sparkling Garbage.  It's been on my list forever and a day and I finally bought it off of  I decided to do a little water marble with it and China Glaze in Liquid Leather.  I used some large holographic hex glitter for my accent nail and I pretty much love it!  So did my family, actually!

Here's a little video I took of the sparkly goodness.  Ooh la la!!!

How can you NOT "lacq" it?  I'm not even going to ask!  MWAH!
