LA Girl Disco Brites Turntable + Funky Accent

Hello again!  I have a fun summer manicure for you all today.  I recently purchased LA Girl Disco Brites nail polish, which is marketed as being black light responsive.  I haven’t had a chance to try it, but I’ll be going to cosmic bowling in a couple weeks and figured it would be perfect.  I grabbed the last bottle of Turntable, a bright, green-leaning turquoise creme.  I can’t describe the color perfectly, and my camera did a terrible job capturing it.  I did my best to correct the color, though.

Application was a breeze.  I only needed two thin coats for perfect opacity.  It dries exceptionally shiny and gorgeous.  I used top coat and it was even prettier.  It’s so glossy.

For the accent nail I used three thin coats of Sinful Colors Timbleberry plus two thin coats of Sinful Colors All About You.

I can't wait to see how it looks under black lights!  :)

Thanks for reading!

LA Colors Tropical Breeze + Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor

Hey everyone!  Today's post is going to be a bit photo heavy.  I wanted to show off Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor again.  (It's definitely one of my favorite glitter top coats ever).  It's not just glitter... it's iridescent glitter that goes from bright green to blue to violet.  It's super complex and I always stare at my nails when I'm wearing it.  I love that I can change the angle of my hands and see new colors or switch lighting and notice something I hadn't before.

This is 2 coats of LA Colors Tropical Breeze (blue-based purple creme) with one coat of Pearl Harbor.  Topped with quick dry top coat.

NOTD: A Million Pieces of Glitter

It's not really a million pieces of glitter, but it sure felt like it when I was applying them one by one!

This is 2 coats of Color Club Rebel Spirit (extremely dark chocolate creme).  Then using an orange wood stick I placed the glitter on my nails in rows.  I have a lot of chunky craft glitter that I purchased for nail art like this.  I used chartreuse and copper glitters.

Sorry for the fingerprints all over the bottle.  I didn't notice but the camera captured them.  Have a great day everyone!!! :)
