Sally Hansen Big Smoky Top Coat

Sally Hansen Big Smoky Top Coat isn't meant to be worn alone but I decided to try it out anyway. It's a bit streaky so I needed 3 coats to get it even but it's pretty easy to apply. I wish I could have gotten it streak free with just two coats since I liked it a bit less opaque than shown here. I won't be using it again as an actual polish but it will be fun to try some Halloween looks using it as a top coat.

Quick Geometric Nail Art With OPI

Just some quick nail art with OPI Hey Get In Lime and OPI DS Signature. This color combo looked prettier in my head than in reality.

Layering With Zoya Bar and Frida

I'm a huge fan of the discontinued Pixie Dust polishes and would have been happy to have them in even more colors then they made so I tried layering to get a "new" Pixie Dust polish. This attempt didn't quite work but the idea is solid. I started with a base of Zoya Bar and then tried to brush a thin layer of Zoya Frida on top but it was a bit too streaky. I think this would have worked great if I had sponged on Frida instead. Still looked pretty from a distance though!

Zoya Isa & Serenity

This manicure was so easy but the results are gorgeous. I started with a base of Zoya Serenity and the next day I added a swipe of Zoya Isa to one side of may nail and then wiped the brush mostly dry so I could drag out Isa with a dry brush. Super simple and no extra brushes needed.

Sally Hansen Yummy Yam

Sally Hansen Yummy Yam is from their Fall 2015 Tracy Reese Collection.
 
 
Go buy Sally Hansen Yummy Yam right now if you love funky colors. (Just a heads up, it dries darker than bottle color.) The formula is truly superb; you could get away with one coat and no top coat if you're in a hurry. A new favorite polish for sure!
