Gild the Lily

It may still be winter, but today's post focuses on what is to come: Spring!!

I was in a Spring state of mind and had just painted a gorgeous base of Rescue Beauty Lounge's Will They Won't They.  

I never can leave well enough alone, so I added Gothic Gala's Oh Tenenbaum to turn my nails into flowers.  And as a glitterholic I just had to add the final touch, a coat of Elevation Polish's My Heart Lays in the Altai.

I can't wait for Spring to get here!!  If I can't have it outside, then I'll settle for it on my nails!

Rescue Beauty Lounge makes fantastic polishes and can be purchased here

Gothic Gala Lacquers is an indie brand and can be found here

Elevation Polish is an indie as well and can be found here

Enchanted Magic Lights!

Hello all!  Hope you're having a great day!  It's about to get better once you lay your eyes on my latest creation! Caution: fabulous nails ahead!
(real talk, this is a pic heavy post, I really tried to edit the amount of pictures but I am just so in love with this mani!!)

One of my missions currently is to use my untried polishes.  So I decided to hit up my Enchanted Polishes and plucked the first two that caught my eye: Presto Magic and Flashing Lights.  They did not disappoint.  Even Presto Magic on its own was amazingly beautiful!!

I tried my hand again at TwinkledT's cyclone vinyls and was more successful this time, I also used the spirals for the first time and I think they're now my favorite vinyls of all time!!

These polishes are so perfect together, it really seems like they were meant to be!!

Confession: I still have this mani on, a week later, which is super unusual for me!!  I just don't want to take the polish off, I'm going to see how long I can keep it looking good!

Enchanted Polish can be hard to come by, the polishes featured on this post aren't too pricey. You can find EP most easily on Facebook, there are several groups and also general nail sales groups that offer these polishes.  Alternatively, you can hope to catch a restock on their main website, Nail Polish Canada, or Mei Mei's Signatures.

TwinkledT Vinyls are available here and also follow on Instagram and Facebook for inspiration and coupon codes!

If you're curious about my top coat, you can buy it in drug stores, or online - I have Amazon ship it to me every two months as part of their subscription service.

Picture Perfect

Today I have an incredibly gorgeous mani that is easily one of my top 5 of all time!!

First, an amazing silver holo by Octopus Party Nail Lacquer called Phantom.  This polish is so stunning that I wore it plain for several days because I didn't think I could or should embellish it.

But then of course, my mind wandered over to a new Picture Polish I had acquired, Imperial.  Next thing I knew, I had some skinny chevron Nail Vinyls and all of a sudden this incredible combo went from dream to reality.

I could wear this mani over and over again and still love it every time! 

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer is super awesome and is available here

Picture Polish is an Australian indie and is available on their site as well as stockist Llarowe

Nail Vinyls are of course found here and are extremely addictive.
