BB Couture Double Gradient

I recently discovered that BB Couture Electric Avenue is a bad polish but I was already wearing it and I needed my nails to look nice in a hurry so I did a quick double sponge gradient to disguise the bubbles and streaks. I used BB Couture Poison Ivy for the gradient which is a terrific polish.

Layering With OPI

I'll always love crackle polishes! This is OPI Jade Is The New Black topped with OPI Pink Shatter which dries to a matte finish. Such a cool effect; I love this combo!

BB Couture Electric Avenue

I like BB Couture polish company but this particular polish is no good. Shown here at 4 coats, BB Couture Electric Avenue is still streaky. It took forever to dry and had some bubbling caused by having to use so many coats.
I think every brand has polishes that suck, even beloved brands. What polish do you loathe from a brand you love?

Floral Nails With OPI

I love crackle polishes and I thought I'd try making some super quick roses with OPI Pink Shatter. It worked great! The base is OPI Elephantastic Pink and I added a few leaves in Jade Is The New Black with highlights in Greenwich Village.

OPI Hey Get In Lime

OPI Hey Get In Lime is shown here at 3 coats but I could have used a fourth since it's still prety streaky. Very pretty mint green polish with just a bit of hidden shimmer but I have other mints with better formulas. What's your favorite mint green polish?

Orly Fowl Play

Orly Fowl Play is from their 2011 Birds of a Feather collection. It's a dark purple jelly with  multichrome flakies and silver and turquoise micro glitter. Shown here at 3 coats but you could definitely get away with 2 for a more sheer look. Applies nicely and just a lovely and unique polish all around. Orly makes my favorite brush and caps as an added bonus.

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It is a recent release from their Insta Dri line. I love this line with their wide brushes and unique bottle shape. 

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It has a great formula for a white creme, one of the best I've ever used in fact. Shown here at just 2 coats. We all know great white creme polishes are hard to find so I suggest going to the nearest drugstore and grabbing Tag Ur It soon!
