Milani 2014 Gold Label Nail Lacquers: Glitters!

Milani Cosmetics has twelve new polishes out for Spring 2013, creams and glitters.  Since I work at CVS, I got first dibs and grabbed all the new glitter polishes.  These polishes are unlike any I have and I really liked the way they applied and wore.

Love, Angeline Polish: Deep Magic, Stone Table, Always Winter And Never Christmas

Aside from creams, the This Is The End collection also has three sparkly polishes: Deep Magic, Stone Table and Always Winter And Never Christmas.

Deep Magic is full of blue holo glitters in a clear base.

This is two coats -- one is put on regularly, and the other is dabbed on -- over When He Shakes His Mane.

I absolutely love this glitter.  Shades of blue and teal are my favorite to wear.  

Here is a shot of Deep Magic in the bottle.  It's like a pool of sparkles.

Stone Table is a white crelly with the green/purple/blue shimmer (as seen in the other creams) and iridescent glitter.  I really love how this polish ties together the creams and the glitters in this collection.  It kind of reminds me of that shiny cement that can be made a counter top, if that makes any sense.

I did three coats of Stone Table on its own and it was not opaque, but I imagine that one or two over white would do the trick, if that's the look you are going for!

Here it is in direct sunlight.  I like that it almost melts into my fingernails.

Look at this!  Always Winter And Never Christmas is a glitter bomb made up of various shapes and sizes of holo glitter, aka TOTALLY AWESOME.

I didn't have black (or other dark-colored) polish with me at the time, so I decided to just put it over Essie In The Cab-ana.  I love the way the bar glitters catch the light.

I did two coats, but you could do more or less depending on how sparkly you want to be!

These polishes are available from Love, Angeline Polish!

Love, Angeline Polish: Sons of Adam, Daughters of Eve, When He Shakes His Mane, For Aslan!

For those of you who do not know (which may be all of you reading this!) I am a huge fan of The Chronicles of Narnia.  I've read them all more than once and I even own one big, fancy book that contains all seven novels.  I am fairly new to the indie polish world, so I was excited when I came across Love, Angeline Polish and saw that there was going to be a Narnia-themed collection.  Here are the four creams of the collection: Sons of Adam, Daughters of Eve, When He Shakes His Mane and For Aslan!

Christmas Nails!

I'm really terrible at doing themed nails, only because when I paint my nails I'm not usually thinking about it!  But this year, I tried to do some Christmas-y nails, if only because anything sparkly reminds me of Christmas.  It works out in my brain.  Anyway, this post is of all the nails I did around Christmas time (so be prepared for many pictures!).

Zoya Nail Polish - Mosheen

I came across Mosheen a while ago while at Ulta, and ended up buying it and a few other things because I had a 20% off coupon.  Mosheen is made up of shiny, blue bar glitters and little round iridescent sparkles in a sheer, blue base.

Revlon - Wintermint

I work at CVS, and when nail polish goes on sale, I buy it.  I got two of the new Parfumerie polishes from Revlon.  The first one I wore is called Wintermint, and it smells like a nice, sweet peppermint.  I couldn't stop sniffing my nails!

These pictures were among the ones in my last post that were corrupted files, so I only have a few.
