Red Coat Tuesday

*purchased by me*

For today's #RedCoatTuesday post I used a base of Zoya Raven. I forgot how much I love this color and black nail polish in general. This is one coat of Raven. 

I wanted something with a shimmer on top to go with today's #augustuntriedchallenge theme, and found the perfect glitter polish - Different Dimension Spencer which was part of the DD Pretty Little Liars Collection. Spencer is a red jelly base with red, black, silver, and holo glitters. This is one coat of Spencer. 

Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of this in sunlight to show the holo, but I think it looks pretty like this. 

Tonight is the summer fatal finale of Pretty Little Liars. This honestly wasn't my favorite season cause I'm not a fan of Ali, but I'm looking forward to how it ends! 

What do you think of my #RedCoatTuesday mani? Are you excited for the PLL summer fatal finale?

Water Marble

*purchased by me*

For today's post I have my first attempt at water marbling.

Polishes used: 

OPI Strawberry Margarita
China Glaze Dance Baby
Rica Polish Whiteout

This also coincides with Day 25 of the #augustuntriedchallenge - pink.

I think the marble turned out better on my right hand so I'm sharing a picture of that as well. 

For my first try I think I did pretty good. What do you think? Have you tried water marbling before? Any tips to perfecting it? 

Thanks for reading!

Pipe Dream Polish 110 degrees

*purchased by me*

Today I have for you Pipe Dream Polish 110 degrees from the A Night In Vegas collection. This color is described as a coral leaning orange neon creme with subtle orange shimmer.  My camera had a really hard time capturing this color accurately as seems to be a normal problem with neons. It's absolutely gorgeous in person! 

As you can see from my picture taken outdoors this color had a lot of fun in the sun! 

This picture was taken indoors in artificial lighting. I used 1 coat of Nailtiques Formula 2, 1 coat of Zoya Get Even, 3 coats of Pipe Dream Polish 110 degrees, and 1 coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.  The formula on this polish was amazing. I can't wait to get some others from this collection. 

Have you tried any of the A Night In Vegas polishes from Pipe Dream Polish? What are your favorites. 

Pipe Dream Polishes can be purchased at pipedreampolish.bigcartel.com and don't forget to like their facebook page.

Red Coat Tuesday

This is my first #RedCoatTuesday post. Red Coat Tuesday was started by my friend Brigitte of Color Me So Crazy so that Pretty Little Liars fans can get together with a nail polish theme each week.  I'm a huge fan of PLL so this was right up my alley! 

I decided to go with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Dawn Breaks which is a red linear holo with gold & purple shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous.  

Are you a Pretty Little Liars fan? Which character is your favorite? 

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquers can be purchased at blueeyedgirllacquer.bigcartel.com
