Layering With Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty & Barielle Buddha-ful

I didn't get my normal proper shots of this pretty combination but you can still get the idea. This is one coat of Barielle Buddha-ful layered over Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty. I love flakies!

Nail Art Inspired By Mr. Candiipants

This is what happens when you let your boyfriend pic your manicure. I asked Will to pick out something for me to try from my pinterest nail art board. He chose this simple but lovely manicure from Mr. Candiipants. Then he picked chose the colors. The results are pretty crazy & not something I would normally wear but it was fun for a night. The base color is Zoya Suri with stripes of Barielle Soul-er Powered. Very easy & striking nail art that I'd like to try again in a different color combination!
Thanks for reading!

Barielle Positive Zen-ergry

This is 2 coats of the Barielle Positive Zen-ergy from their new Karma Collection. I've never used Barielle polishes before & they graciously sent me a few to try out. Positive Zen-ergy is a slightly warm, medium toned green with subtle silver shimmer. I think this one will be flattering on almost any skintone and it works all year round. The formula & brush are very nice too.

I love green polishes and this one is definitely staying in my stash. I think it would be a great green for anyone who has been a little shy of trying things other than traditional polish colors too.

Barielle Buddha-ful

I took tons of pictures of the gorgeous Barielle Buddha-ful from their Karma Collection. I've never used Barielle polishes before & they graciously sent me a few to try out. Buddha-ful is completely unique, something that can't be said very often these days! Its a soft beige jelly loaded with flakies that flash from aquamarine foil to pale pink. I like it so much that I've already worn it twice!
 
 
I used 3 fairly thick coats. I recommend waiting for each coat to dry a bit before applying the next one. The formula applies very nicely but flakies are by nature a bit thick to keep the flakes properly suspended and that just requires a little drying time. Buddha-ful is is definitely worth a couple of extra minutes for this pretty polish.
I love polishes like this that could be mistaken for a nice but plain work sfae polish. Then you get up close and magic! I can't wait to try this as a layering polish. I bet it will be fabulous over hot pink or maybe royal blue.
You can see my photos of Barielle Soul-er Powered from the same collection here.

Barielle Soul-er Powered

Here we have 3 coats of the lovely Barielle Soul-er Powered from their new Karma Collection. I've never used Barielle polishes before & they graciously sent me a few to try out. Soul-er Powered is a gorgeous warm toned yellow packed with shimmer. Like late summer sun in a bottle!  I wish I had Soul-er Powered back when I did this rising sun manicure; it would have been perfect!
Yellow polishes are notorious for being streaky and hard to work with in general. This one didn't have the usual yellow issues but I did notice that I needed to wait a bit longer than normal between coats. There was a bit of dragging if the previous layer hadn't dried significantly. Other than that the formula was very nicely textured.
This is a quick shot of Soul-er Powered in the shade, where it looks a bit more mustard-y. Gorgeous in all lighting in my opinion! This one is definitely a keeper.
