Layla Mercury Twilight Swatches

Hey girlies. I'm very excited to show you my manicure today, it's a very beautiful polish. It's Mercury Twilight by Layla, a stunning linear silver holo. It's very, very pretty. I'll give you the bad news first though: the formula sucks ass. Holy cheeseballs, this polish was a pain in the ass to put in. It still has some streaks and bald spots but I did not want to waste any more polish...I tried to put it on over two different bases before this one, and the bottle is only 10 mL so you can imagine how much I wasted and how much it hurt my little polish-loving heart. It's pricey, too. It costs $15.50 for 10 mL. You're getting less product for more money... but oh boy is it worth it. You're going to have to excuse the quality of these photos. I had to use my phone because my camera is being a pain in the ass too. Here is three coats, with OPI top coat:

The trick to applying this? No base coat. Not even the ol' using a matte top coat as a base worked. I had to skip on the base coat... this will probably result in quicker chipping but whatever. I love this, it's soooo pretty. I can't stop looking at my fingers. :]

What do you think? Do you like it? Have it? Let me know! Any tips on how to apply it better?!

OPI DS Original and Instagram!

Hey girlies :] Today I have a re-swatch of OPI DS Original. I'm in a very holographic mood, and some goodies should be arriving next week ;) But for now, I'll stick with an oldie but goodie. Here are two coats with Seche:

Look at it! She's gorgeous! :D

Also, I now have an Instagram! I'm still a noob so I'm not sure how things work yet but you guys can follow me if you'd like, my user name is: my_reh_neh may seem silly but it's the way to pronounce my name, which no one seems to be able to do lol. Let me know if you have an Instagram and I'll follow you! :D

Essie Cute As A Button Swatches

Hey gals :] So remember how I said I would wear my last mani for a few days? I ruined it the next day in the shower...then I took it off and just had a coat of Gelous on my nails and the stupid door on my boyfriend's bathroom broke THREE of my nails! So I've been hiding my nails since. I think they're okay to show now. I'm still on my coral kick, so I decided to go for another coral crelly. This time I went for a lighter color, and I chose Cute As A Button by Essie. I'm not sure if I've showed this already... welp, here it is. The pictures are two coats with Seche. Here you go:

Look at how pretty it is! :] I love it, it's very spring-y and I think it looks good with my skin. It's another color shifter, here it is in the sun:

See how it looks almost orange? I like it. It's very spring-ish. :] It's a crelly so it's super shiny on its own. Hopefully I can wear this one for a few days. No worries, I have a post planned that I'm sure you guys will find...amusing.

Sinful Colors Thimbleberry Swatches

Hey girlies! I know I took a little break but that was because for the past 4 (yes, 4!) days, I've had Essie Mint Candy Apple on my nails and I already showed you pictures of it so I deemed it unnecessary to post it again...but I know I'll be wearing it again soon so I'll show you pictures then. Today I have a polish in my current favorite color, coral. I love love love the color purple, but coral is a really close favorite and lately I've been on a coral kick. This is Sinful Colors Thimbleberry...well, according to Google that's what it's called. My bottle says Timbleberry, without the h...whatever. Here's two coats with some Seche:

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. No, you do not need to adjust your monitor. Yes, those three pictures are of the same polish. See how it changes depending on the lighting? Also, excuse my shitty camera that fuzzes the pictures unless there's flash. In some lights, it looks like an orange leaning some lights, it looks like a pinky some lights it looks some lights it looks pink...outdoors, it looks coral. It's a trickster, it messes with your eyes. I love it regardless, and I plan on wearing it for a few days. I actually wore this before and didn't take pictures. Sorry. I'm a bad blogger.

What do you think? Do you have this? Do you love coral too? Let me know, thanks for reading!

China Glaze Optical Illusion Swatches

Hey girlies! So I love you guys. You guys are great. The other day, I was having a bad day. I got home and there was a package waiting for me... I had no clue what it was, so naturally I tore it open. In it I found a card and China Glaze Optical Illusion. They came from Heather of Peace, Love and Polish. I was so excited, I put it on immediately. Here are some pictures:

This is an awesome duochrome glitter... the glitter isn't individually duochrome, the entire nail has the effect! It's awesome, no? I tried to capture the aqua-to-violet shift but I failed. Pretend you see it. It really is amazing. This is two coats with Seche buuut it's gritty, so I'd definitely recommend some Gelous then top coat to smooth it out.

There's a funny story with this polish. I got it in the mail, and the next day, my boyfriend bought me this and Riveting for my Easter basket...I have them both already! Where he bought them they don't take returns so I'm going to give them away! I'm looking for something else to add so it's not just a two polish giveaway so look out for that. :]

Blue for Autism Awareness

Hey girlies. So today is World Autism Awareness Day, and of course I had to use a blue polish to show my support! My youngest sister (whose little hands you've seen on my blog before!) is autistic, so awareness for this is something I fully support. I wanted to use a very special polish, one of my absolute favorites, to show my support. Now, I kind of cheated because this isn't fully blue. It's a blue jelly base full of gold-to-green duochrome shimmer. It is Orly Halley's Comet. It's a dupe to Zoya Charla and OPI Catch Me in Your Net. I looove this color so much. It's one of my favorites, and I figured it'd be great for this mani. Here is two coats with some Seche in different lighting to show the different faces of this polish:

I hope you like it! I can't stop staring at my hands! I love how it catches the light, deeming it the perfect "Light it Up" blue! Haha, get it? ... I need better jokes.

What do you think? Do you like this? Do you have it? Did you wear blue today? Let me know, thanks for reading! :D
