Manic Monday- KB Shimmer Don’t Pink Twice

Here we are again! Only a few weeks left in summer so I thought I would bring you one of my new favorite summer neons, Don’t Pink Twice by KBShimmer! This neon dries to a matte finish, but you can gloss it up with topcoat if you so desire

It’s difficult to see in the first pictures but I ATTEMPTED to do a matte/shiny french manicure by using topcoat on the tips. It was subtle IRL too…but just really didnt show up well in pictures. Also if you look closely at the bottle, especially in the first and last pictures, you will see there is an ever-so-slight blue shimmer

 

Whats your favorite neon? Whats your favorite KB Shimmer??. 

Manic Monday: Summer French Leopard

Good evening readership! I was actually just discussing one of these polishes today so I decided this manicure would be today’s subject! I used a 4 polish combination of both indie and mainstream to create this dazzling (and freshly scented!) masterpiece!

I really love using leopard print in my manicures. It always looks fancy and complicate but is actually very simple to execute with a dotting tool. 

What are your faves from these brands? Any other cool leopard idea to try?

Mani-c Mondays: Carpe Noctem’s Moss Agate

Hello again! Apparently manicures are the only posts I can make with any sort of regularity. Today I bring you some swatchy swatches of Moss Agate, by Carpe Noctem Cosmetics. You may have noticed that this is one of my favorite indie polish brands so far. Beautiful colors, lasting formula, great communication….but hey. The polish speaks for itself, amirite?

Another winner from Carpe Noctem. I must have at least 10 of her colors now. Go buy some! Store linked in beginning of the post. Also one of my faves–the 90s (matte neon glitter) is on clearance so act fast!!

Mani-c Monday: Carpe Noctem The 90’s

Hullo readers! Today I am going to show you one of my FAVE glitter toppers! This is Carpe Noctem’s The 90s, one of many of my Carpe Noctem polishes. It is probably my favorite indie brand so far–not that I have that many YET but I am slowly but surely starting to venture out. However, Carpe Noctem was one of my first and will thus always hold a special place in my heart. That, and the fact that these polishes have super smooth application and last forever and are available in multiple sizes.

The 90s is a matte neon glitter–with big neon hexes. You don’t have to go fishing for the hexes either. I wore it in the following pictures over Color Club-Harp On It. I was so excited about how this manicure turned out that I didn’t wait for daylight OR for cleaning up the lines. This should not be news to you where I am concerned 😛

Those last couple pictures with flash really show off the holographic quality of the Color Club. This manicure is everything I love–glitter, neon colors, bright sparkly goodness!
