Liquid Sky Lacquer New Years Collection

Hey guys! Today I have the Liquid Sky Lacquer Collection by Caroyln. To go to here store click HERE. This collection was limited edition.
The first polish is Ring In The New Year. It is a silver base with white and black small circle glitter. This was very hard to apply. It kept running down my nails and created a pile there. I tried it with thin coats but it just didn't work. It is a pretty polish, though. Below is three thin coats of Ring In The New Year.
The next polish was actually made by her boyfriend and is called 3,2,1 Happy New Year! It is a mix of all kinds of glitter in a clear base! There is silver, red, green, blue, and much more in different shapes of glitter. This is one of my favorite polishes as of right now. I love all the colors! Below is one coat of 3,2,1 Happy New Year! over one coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black.
The final one is Radioactive Countdown. Not only is it gorgeous but it glows! Radioactive Countdown, at first, was a white jelly base. But after looking at it clearly it is actually a glow base. It contains multiple color shard glitter. It is amazing! Below is two coats of Radioactive Countdown over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
This one I was finally able to capture it glow. It glows like crazy! I have no idea when it doesn't glow. It's amazing. By far the most beautiful glow polish ever.

Liquid Sky Lacquer Halloween Collection

Hey guys! Today I have the Liquid Sky Lacquer Halloween Collection! To go to Caroly's, the maker of Liquid Sky Lacquer, website click HERE.
The first polish out of this limited edition Halloween collection is Zombie Brains. Zombie brains is a pink-purple jelly base with iridescent small circle glitter and fine blue glitter. The polish was a little thick and hard to apply. But even though it was difficult to apply the magic happened when you went in the dark. It glows! I wasn't able to capture the glow because of my camera but it does glow. It doesn't glow as much as the other ones in this collection, though. Below is three coats of Zombie Brains.
This next one is Monster Juices. Monster Juices is a pink base with large sheer pink hexagons, iridescent bar glitter, pink fine glitter, and iridescent small circle glitter. This one is the medium glow. Still beautiful, though. I think this would make the perfect background for a Valentine's day nail art design. Anyway, below is two coats of Monster Juices.
The final one out of this collection, and also my favorite, is Witches Brew. Witches Brew has black, orange, and iridescent fine glitter in a light grey jelly base. After the second coat it like of gets the jelly sandwich look which is amazing. (I love jelly sandwich glitter!) It was super easy to apply. This one is the glow-y-est of them all but unfortunately I wasn't able to capture it. Below is two coats of Witches Brew.
Overall I think this collection is wonderful. I love it all! To go check out the shop for Liquid Sky Lacquer click HERE. All of her polishes are amazing and you need to go buy one...or some!

Liquid Sky Lacquer Fall Collection Swatches

Hey guys! Today I have Liquid Sky Lacquer limited edition fall collection polishes. (You can find her website by clicking HERE There are three of them, Thanksgiving, Fall Harvest, and Fall Afternoon. They are all so gorgeous!
So the first one I will be showing you is a lovely polish called Thanksgiving It is a beautiful polish that is a clear base with fine red and brown glitter with medium red circle glitter and large yellow hexagon glitter. It also has a few clear glitters that I'm not positive the shape of due to the fact of my white base. This was a little tricky to apply but simple enough. The large glitter was hard to get out and it took a few shakings of the bottle to get one on the brush because I couldn't fish them out. Below is two coats of OPI Just Spotted The Lizard with one coat of Thanksgiving on top.
The next polish is Fall Afternoon. Fall Afternoon is an amazing polishes that has a clear base with orange, yellow, and gold fine glitter, green bar glitter, and large hexagon shaped yellow glitter. It was a little tricky to apply, it had the same problems as Thanksgiving with the problem of the large glitter. Can I just say...this polish is gorgeous! Below is two coats of China Glaze Kalahari Kiss with one coat of Fall Afternoon applied on the top.
The final polish out of the limited edition fall collection is Fall Harvest. Fall Harvest contains a clear base with red fine glitter, orange and red circle glitter (small), orange bar glitter, and shreds of yellow glitter. This has to be my favorite out of the entire collection. And it was so easy to apply! I have never had a glitter polish apply this well and be so beautiful at the same time. Below is two coats of China Glaze-Desert Sun topped with one coat of Fall Harvest.
Overall I think this collection was amazing. Yes, the polishes had some slight issues but they were easy to fix. I can honestly say I am not the biggest fan of mixed glitter but these just took me in and made me LOVE mixed glitter!

No Buy Blues--Giveaway?

Been on a no buy for let's think...2 days? Haha. Anyway this is already so hard. My brain keeps going back to China Glaze, Essie, Opi, Xoxonails, nailsauce, and more. But hey, if I don't break it that will be a plus! Right?

Anyway, speaking of no buys, I'm having a small...giveaway on my Instagram account (shhh! It's a secret!) Prize is a holiday collection polish from China Glaze, Essie, Orly, or Finger Paints. Go find the picture on my Instagram with the super cute snow man and read the instructions. Maybe you'll win a polish! (It ends tonight, November 26, 2012 at 10:00 pm mountain time)

More giveaway crap is I'm going to be having three flash giveaways on my Instagram in December. I won't be telling when the flash giveaways will start on my instagram but on here, oh, you'll know. Every giveaway, contest, important news, you'll get the inside scoop here. More reason to pay attention to a blog, eh? (Did anyone else read that with a Canadian acccent? Do Canadians have accents? I need to meet a Canadian...)

Now back to the no buys...because I have a skippy mind. I will post on the bottom of each of my blog posts with how many days I've kept the no buy. I think if I'm able to keep it for two months I'll have a giveaway/contest on my Instagram. Hmm....maybe so....
