Dashica Stamping Plates

I just wanted to share this wonderful opportunity I have to get some unique stamping plates! One of my polish-gals in the Netherlands ( <3 u Claudia!) is ordering me some plates and shipping them to me! A few other of my polish-gals are getting some shipped to me as well. If anyone is interested, she is waiting 1 day from now to place the order so more gals can get in on the order. If you are interested, please email me ( or Facebook message me ASAP with the plate numbers you want. I don't have the exact US cost yet because I don't know what shipping is, but the plates will be $6.75 before shipping from her to me, or me to you. They are much larger than Konad or Bundle Monster plates, so you get more for your money.  The link below takes you to their site, they have the plates broken up into three sections of 20 plates each. Have fun looking, but we warned, if you like stamping you will WANT some of these!!

Comparison to Konad:

Revlon - Smoldering Dupchrome polish Silver/Gray to Pink Foil

Revlon Smoldering
Revlon "Smoldering"
Pink/Gray Duochrome

I found this today at Walgreens in a new display. I didn't notice the name of the collection, I wish I would have. I picked up this one and a red sparkly called Saucy. I'll find out the collection name and update as soon as I can.

Anyway, this one jumped out at me because I saw it was a subtle dupchrome. Got it home, pulled it out and it looked like someone ha stolen the pink! Stupid lighting! Below are the swatches.

First finger is naked, Middle has black underwear, Ring has OPI Ink for underwear and the pinky has South Sea Pearl underneath. These pictures don't capture the true pink beauty. It looks like Revlon Carbonite or Chanel Graphite, when the pink kicks in it is like someone put a sheer coat of Funky Fingers Favorite Girl over top. I really like this over a dark base.

Excuse my messy fingers....i just finished swatching lots of glitters....

Inglot 204

Inglot 204
Blue Flakie over China Glaze Liquid Leather

Last weekend I went on a polish shopping spree in downtown Chicago. Some polish friends and I made the trek to some supply stores as well as Water Tower place to visit Sephora. On our way up to Sephora, we were sidetracked by Macy's...and oh what a wonderful sidetrack that turned out to be!!! This tiny, little bottle was sitting there beckoning us. There were four of us, and only 3 the moment, Raquel didn't want one but then...what did she do? She swatched if over black! We all literally gasped at the beauty! Then of course, she wanted one and there were none (we weren't given up ours!! tee hee!) Thankfully, Macy's ordered it for her and is sending it to her with free shipping!

Onto the polish....the pictures speak for themselves.

OPI - Man of La Mancha

I have had this beauty sitting in my melmer, gathering dust...what a waste! I pulled it out to use it as a base for Ozotic 531...when I put this one I was in awe. Why have I not heard about this polish? Why are people not scouring eBay and blog sales for it? It is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!!

Technical details, this is 2 coats on a naken 'underwear' as I've heard it called! Although it was recommended to me to put this over black or something dark. Enjoy the pics below, I think you will agree that it is spectacular 'naked' ;)

These were all taken under a compact fluorescent bulb, just at different angles...get...your...bibs!!!!!!

Ozotic 507 - Gold to Green Color Shift

 Ozotic 507
(Green to Gold Color Shift)

This ...! I love this polish! Keep in mind that the pictures below have no top coat, this is purely the polish. The color shift is GORGEOUS and to top it off, it is an almost perfect dupe of Chanel Peridot at half the price!

As always, I will let the pictures and video speak for this polish....I have three coats on overtop of a clear base. No top coat as I was doing a swatch-a-thon, but when I wore it I used Seche Vite and it was FAB!

I got this bottle at an amazing price through my friend Stephanie who is a distributor for Ozotic polishes here in the states. These come from Australia. I was fortunate enough to get to hang out and polish shop with Stephanie yesterday!! She also brought me yet another Ozotic, #531....keep watching for that one!!!

Make-Up Store - Greta (Silver Holo)

Make-Up Store  "Greta"
(Silver Holographic polish)

I recently was part of a Make-Up Store group buy organized by my friend Taylor, I only got two but wanted to share this beauty with you!! This is Greta....and I think Greta is Gosh Holo in disguise! Seriously, they are SO similar. I will post some Gosh comparisons another time, for now this post is entirely dedicated to Miss Greta!

If you have been lemming over Gosh Holo....get yourself a bottle of Greta and you will NOT be dissapointed! But I will warn you, just like Gosh and Nfu-Oh, you DO need an aquabase.
