Dance Legend Robots vs. Humans

What a wonderfully perfect polish for Thanksgiving! This milk chocolate linear holo is something that totally puts me into a trance. Even out of sunlight, the lines dance in the bottle and on my nail. I don't own many Dance Legend polishes.

Is it me or do they stink to holy high heaven? Honestly, I don't care. Their mix of colors and finishes makes me a happy camper, if I loved camping that is.

This is two cats with a topcoat. Accent nails are two coats of Sally Hansen Teeny Bikini then stamped with Robots vs. Humans and Bundle Monster 410. For some reason I thought the image channeled turkey feathers. Hope you had a great day and evening with family, friends and loved ones.

Lavish Polish Peach Please

Aren't thermal polishes the best thing ever? Especially now that Indie creators are adding glitters and shimmer and flakies. I picked up a Lavish Polish colors and threw in Peach Please! because of the great thermal and golden flakies.

This is three coats. When warm, this jelly is a warm pinkish that goes great with my skintone. When cold, it's a bright tangerine color. Those gold flakes really are pretty no matter what temperature my fingers are at.

This is three coats of Peach Please with two coats of China Glaze Champagne Kisses.

Barielle Jetsetter Collection Swatches

I recently received Barielle's Jetsetter collection. This is their fall/winter release. I can definitely see using a lot of these colors in my holiday manis and nail art.

 Kiss Me Kate is a creamy beige/pink - not quite mannequin hands but a nice nude

 Rain in Spain - creamy light periwinkle 

 Gondola Ride - a creamy sage green

Irish Eyes - While this and Gondola Ride look similar, they have enough of a difference than I was able to capture in my photos. This is a a creamy moss green.

 Autumn in Seoul - a deep copper shimmer - very pretty and a nice fall hue

Midnight in Paris - creamy midnight blurple 

All swatches are two coats and I didn't use a basecoat or topcoat for any of these. Each 5 free polish retails for $8 a piece and can be purchased here.

There was some staining with the darker colors so be sure to use a BC. Overall the creams were smooth and opaque. I think they would be awesome for stamping. For some reason I am just loving Rain in Spain the most. Which color are you being drawn to?

She Wants the D - Llarowe Bronco Blue

You KNOW I have to do a few orange and blue manis ladies! Showing some love for my Denver Broncos and that beast Peyton Manning. I had the perfect polish from Llarowe's big game collection last year (although the game results were definitely not what I had hoped) I still got my hands on her custom holo Bronco Blue.

I used one coat of Zoya Annie at the top of the accent nails with Sinful Snow Me White on the bottom. I then used striping tape and covered with one coat of Bronco Blue.

The rest of the nails I used two coats of Bronco Blue. The perfect Sunday mani for the W!
