Cupcake Polish You'll Need This Pink

Hey Hussies!
 
Tonight I have the pinkest of pink holographic glitter polishes in all of creation to share with you. Introducing You'll Need This Pink by Cupcake Polish, an exclusive shade for Rainbow Connection UK.
 
This delectable polish is a bright, near neon pink jelly base packed to the brim with holographic glitter. The polish is opaque in two coats and dries to a smooth finish so no need for masses of topcoat!
 
 
 

Now I'm not one to wear a polish for more than a day but this was so stunning I thought id have some fun with it and used Cyclone Nail Vinyls from Twinkled T to create a trippy, hypnotic effect...





I just cant stop staring at these and I've had so many nice comments about them :-)
 
Cupcake Polishes are available from their online store but this particular polish is only available from Rainbow Connection UK. You'll Need This Pink is currently out of stock but Annette has assured me that it should be back in stock very soon.
 
The nail vinyl I used is available to buy from Twinkled T, they have a wide range of designs and they're so easy to use!
 
Have fun Hussies, until next time xx

Pipe Dream Polish A Night In Vegas Collection

Hey Hussies!
 
Tonight I want to talk about the best collection of polishes to have come out in the past year, they're bright, they have a perfect formula and they are amazing for all kinds of nail art...
 
I am of course talking about the Pipe Dream A Night In Vegas Collection. A collection so amazing that their lovely creator cant keep up with the demand! This collection consists of seven neon crème polishes some with a very subtle shimmer. these polishes are so versatile: they marble, they gradient, they dotticure, they stamp AND they're black light/UV light responsive; there is nothing these polishes cant do!
 
Here are a few of my escapades with this AMAZING collection...
 











 
This truly is a dream collection. I'm looking forward to seeing what Pipe Dream Polish comes up with in the future. A collection like this in primary colours would be awesome ;-)
 
Pipe Dream Polishes are available from Pipe Dream Polish for the USA. Us overseas girls can get our polish fix at Edgy Polish, they're out of stock at the moment but I know there's a restock coming soon so keep your eye on them ;-)

Colors by Llarowe Pikes Pink

Hey Hussies!
 
Today I have one of the new CbL jelly polishes to share with you. This past week Llarowe released four new jelly polishes and I have Pikes Pink for you tonight. I loved the jellies Leah Ann released last year; I know there were some staining issues and I myself had staining but with colours like Summer...Finally! and the gorgeous Frenzy I can overlook staining. Besides I never go out with naked nails so its not exactly a huge deal anyway for me.
 
Pikes Pink is a deep pink jelly that can be built to opacity in about 3-4 coats.
 
I'm a sucker for a Pond Manicure so that was my first thought when I saw new jellies! Just look at the depth that can be created with this multi-layered technique. I haven't got a tutorial for creating a Pond Manicure but there are loads on Instagram and You Tube so go have a look and have a go.





I'm hoping to grab Wildflower Fields and Garden of the Gods when Rainbow Connection restock at the end of the month as I've got big plans for them too.

Colours by Llarowe polishes are available direct from Llarowe.com and us UK girls can stock up at Rainbow Connection UK.

Color Club Poptsatic Pastel Neon Collection

Hey Hussies!
 
Today I have the new Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection from Color Club. Firstly the thought of pastel neons is a total oxymoron for me, how can a pastel also be a neon?? Faded or bleached neons may have been a better choice of words but that's just the teacher in me coming out.
 
The name aside, I love this collection! It consists of seven shades including Feathered Hair Out To There (pink), Meet Me At The Rink (blue), Diggin The Dancing Queen (lavender),
Disco's Not Deat (creamy yellow), Hot Hot Hot Pants (peach), 'Til The Record Stops (minty green) and Under The Blacklight (pastel highlighter yellow). Each one reaches pull creamy coverage in 2-3 careful coats.
 
The colours are delicate yet vibrant at the same time. I've been playing around with this collection for a week or so now and here are a couple of the fun ideas I've come up with...
 
 
 
 
And just in case you were wondering...
 
 
 
They do glow under black light/UV light!
 
Colour Club polishes are available from many online retailers. I bought my collection from the USA on EBay as they are a little more difficult to get in the UK.

Glam Polish Cast a Spell Part 3: The White Witch Collection

Hey Hussies!
 
Today I have four new (to the UK) polishes from the White Witch Collection from Glam Polish. This collection is made up of nine pastel holographic polishes that each have a smattering of super holographic glitter. Each polish reaches full coverage in two coats and dries to a slightly gritty finish so I topped them off with a coat of Gelous and a coat of HKGirl top coat.
 
Today I have Hypnotize, Spellbound, Mesmerize and Enchanted to share with you...
 

Hypnotize

Hypnotize is a minty green polish that reminds me of Tiana's dress from the Disney film The Princess and The Frog.



Spellbound

Spellbound is the perfect Cinderella blue.



Mesmerize

Mesmerize s a stunning lavender/lilac. I couldn't think of a princess equivalent, but it doesn't make it any less princess-like!



Enchanted

Enchanted is the perfect, delicate, baby princess pink. It is the encapsulation of all things girly.



There is no getting away from just how beautiful these polishes are, its such a perfect collection for spring and I can see it being used in a lot of winter nail art too!
 
Glam Polishes are available from GlamPolish.com, there is also a section on their site about internationial stockists so you can get your Glam on no matter where you live! For us UK girls Glam Polish can be found at Rainbow Connection UK.

Sparkly Vernis Spring In Your Step and Guilded Lemon Drops

Hey Hussies!
 
Today I have another two lovely polishes from Sparkly Vernis.
 

Spring In Your Step

This polish is a cross between spring green and mint green (if there is such a thing!). It has a slightly metallic finish under normal lighting but comes alive in the sunlight with a spectrum of rainbows.
 
The swatches here show three thin coats and one coat of HK Girl top coat.




Gilded Lemon Drops

This polish is a pale, champagne gold. This was a little tricky to apply; it appeared streaky after the first two coats but levelled off nicely by the third. I think the trick with this polish is to leave enough time to dry between coats as it levels as it dries. This polish also has a metallic sheen but really sparkles in the sunlight.
 
Here it is shown at three coats plus one coat of HK Girl top coat.




Sparkly Vernis polishes are available at SparklyVernis.com and for us UK girls from Rainbow Connection UK.

Sparkly Vernis Palm Trees At Night Collection

Hey Hussies!

Today I have two polishes from the Palm Trees At Night Collection by Sparkly Vernis. Both polishes have a brilliant constancy and could be one coaters if you were careful; I have used two coats in these swatches (because I'm a bit anal about just using one coat) and I have topped them off with one coat of HK Girl top coat from Glisten & Glow.

Coral Reef 

Coral Reef is a pinky-coral holographic polish that dries semi-matte. This polish is going to be awesome on summer toes to show off a tan!


 
 

Breeze and Wave Sounds

Breeze and Wave Sounds is a cross between blue and teal, it almost couldn't make up its mind what colour it was. It has an exquisite rainbow holographic effect in the sunlight.



Sparkly Vernis polishes are available at SparklyVernis.com and us UK girls can get them from Rainbow Connection UK.
