Ahhh, the crowning jewel of the swatches I have shown you. I fell deeply in love with this color. This color is nothing short of AMAZING! I need the rest of the glitter from this collection - I just decided! While it wasn't quite a one coater - once coat did apply way better than most glitters. What makes this color so awesome is the black that is in this. Even after looking at these close up pictures I'm still not certain if this is in a black base or has very small micro black glitter in it. Either way - get this!

This dries to a cool matte look - of course I want my glittah to shine, but I took a picture of this without top coat so you could see the cool matte effect of this one. It is at the very bottom of this post.

One other VERY awesome thing about this polish was that it removed really well too. The glitter is so small that it didn't want to stick to my nails and removed much better.


Ya'll KNOW I liked this one - glittah is my thing! Gems is VERY similar to Lippmann's Happy Birthday. They are almost dupes, but not quite. The glitter colors are a little different and the shape of some of the glitter is different. However, with out a close up photo and side by side comparison, you can't really tell the difference. Shown is 2 coats - and you can see how well this covered.


First off, as I'm sure you can tell from the pictures, the bottles are painted. That is why my nails color looks different. I personally don't like painted bottles, I like to see exactly the color that is inside the bottle for that reason alone, the colors aren't exact.

That being said, I do like the color Fresh Teal. This applied very nice with only 2 coats. Like most neons, it dried to a matte finish. The pictures shown are with top coat.


This is an electric Smurf blue polish. This was a little on the thin side and required 4 coats, you could do three but I liked it better with four. It has some cool shimmer to it that I thought made it look like a waterfall on my nails.


I have really had a thing for orange nail polish this summer - and this might be my favorite I've worn so far. This has a great brightness to it, but it isn't neon orange. This was super creamy to apply. I love this color with my skin tone.


Good morning! Today I have several Milani nail polishes that I want to share with you.

The first one is a holo polish from their 3D Holographic line called 3D. This is a gold holo polish that is beautiful! This applied really nice in only two coats. It has that really chunky look to it, but is completely smooth. I really like that effect.

Just wanted to update everyone on the status of my stolen posts. I filed a copyright complaint through Blogger and they were WONDERFUL fast in getting my posts removed from that "blog". It took them less than a day to remove the requested posts.

I have made it my mission to try and inform everyone that I could, who had stolen posts/pics, of what this idiot was doing. I even noticed two people that joined the "blog" and the one that I could find a way to contact them, I let them know just what kind of a "blog" they had joined and I was sure they were unaware that everything on that "blog" was stolen.

I also noticed today that all but two posts remain on this "blog"!! However, it appears that even one of them was stolen too, so I sent an email to that person urging them to file a copyright complaint on their stolen material. I did notice that they at least had the original web address listed at the bottom, but didn't link it.

I hate to even give this person any hits, but I feel the need to continue to check this blog and notify people of their stolen material. Hopefully Blogger will shut this "blog" down as they are a repeat offender.

I also wanted to say THANK YOU to each and every one of you that took the time to leave me a comment on my original stolen posts post. Whether it was an encouraging word or an idea of what to do, I appreciate them all. I'm sending you all a virtual hug and virtual bottle polish - sorry, it's the best I can do, lol! Seriously, thanks girls - good to know I have you all in my corner.

Anyway - I will be back to my normal posting next week. In the meantime - please enjoy my baby girl Dinky snuggling ever so tightly with her favorite toy, her bunny :)

Good morning! Today I have a post for my German readers. I wanted to let you guys know about an online shop called MAHA Cosmetics. I was recently contacted by them and I wanted to help spread the word. They sell a lot of CND & Essie products, as well as just about any other nail related product you can think of. I got my package of Essies within a couple of weeks, but remember that was all the way here to the US. They were all packaged nicely and arrived in one piece.

The three Essies I got are swatched below:
