Sinful Polar Opposites Magnetic Nail Polish

Sinful magnetic polish
Sinful Polar Opposites duochrome magnetic polish!!!!!
OMG, this polish is so awesome! Lol.

I thought I was over magnetics for now. We've seen so many of them from almost every brand including china glaze, wet n wild, Layla, random grocery store brands, Sally Hansen, etc.

This, however, my friends, is something I at least, had not seen. A magnetic polish that is also a wonderful glittery shimmery DUOCHROME.

Yup, you read that right. Sinful Polar Opposites is a Duochrome Magnetic polish!!! "Duochrome Magnetic polishes EXIST!?!?" Yes, dear reader, they do now. And FYI, sinful has done a pretty bang up job on this one. Amazingly, for a five dollar bill, you could be the proud new owner of such a beauteous lacquer, too! =0)

Hi guys! Long time, no post, huh?!

Sorry 'bout that! I've been SUPER busy and have lots of news!!! =0)

Most exciting news first,

I have an iPad!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you believe it!?!?!? I still have trouble remembering that it's real. I swear I never thought I'd have one! =0) I've had a flip phone for the last, let's see... 5 years? MORE!?!? So, yeah. Technology doesn't find me very easily much to my dismay...!

So when I was gifted an ipad recently, I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY with how cool it is. Seriously loving it and catching up on tons of lost time- downloading apps, taking pics, etc. Living the mobile life! Lol

Next coolest thing is that MASH sent me a new plate set to review. I've not ever received any products for review until then (, so it's s pretty big deal to me. I have been playing with it for sometime now so I have lots of pictures to share with you guys! Which is the reason I wanted to wait to do the post- I like regular blogger reviews that show an example mani, but I thought it would be AWESOME to wait on the review until I could show a TON of example manis. So that was my strategy... =0)

Next next, I should be receiving a set from CHEEKY very soon to review for you guys, also. Yes, I am super freaking out excited!!!!! Lol. I know we all (well,many of us, anyway!) have been waiting for what feels like FOREVER for CHEEKY to release their "Summer Set." Well, they are doing a short pre-sale right now, and will release the set "for real" very soon! YAYYY!!!

Now, the pic you saw at the beginning of this post was a mani I did a few weeks ago. The base isOPI Swimsuit Nailed It, and I painted the UK flag with polish stripers. I kinda suck (I think, anyway) at painting nail art by hand. However, the union jack is a pretty forgiving patter to do. I kinda just winged it and I thought it turned out pretty cute!

More stamping with magnetics

So, that's kinda my new thing.  Stamping on magnetic polish.

I loved the original tiger manicures so much that I've been trying other combination since.  Here's another recent creation.

Justice Magnetic polish (in green) stamped with BM 223

Waddya think?  I'm loving these animal prints on top of magnetic polish!  I feel like it's my trademark mani now, too!  lol

Pretty Pink & Black Polka Dots

I have a pretty dotticure for you all today.  I modeled this mani after a little makeup pouch I got from Target for like a dollar or two.  I always loved the color scheme and the design.  So, of course I wanted to translate that into a mani for like EVER!  haha!  But it took me some months to get around to doing it.  Also, this was my very first dotticure where I cover my nails with dots and don't just do a random pattern on a portion of the nail.  Mama is proud!  ;0)

 For this mani I used a bunch of colors!  I actually could NOT believe that I had in my stash colors that worked PERFECTLY for this and matched the bag like, exactly!

 The colors I used are as follows:
  • White - Wet n Wild White
  • Black - Wet n Wild Black Creme
  • Light Grey - China Glaze Recycle
  • Dark Grey - Zoya Kelly
  • Light Pink - Color Club (unknown, unmarked from Ross set)
  • Medium Pink - Color Club Poptastic
  • Dark Pink - Color Club - All That Razz
I loved this mani.  I really enjoyed wearing it for a couple days and I hope you like it, too! =0)

Hello again & Halloween Manis

OMG has this post really been hiding in limbo this whole time!?!  *sigh*  oh well ,better late than never, right?  ....RIGHT!?!  lol

Hi guys.  I'll keep this short and sweet! =)

I'm still alive!  and I had a lot of fun playing with halloween manis!

Evidenced below:

Chartreuse grit and black glitter gradient
sorry if this looks gross, I was playing and kept adding stuff.  not really a *real* mani but it ended up looking cool so I snapped a couple pix.  thought I'd share! 
I realize these first 2 pix are slightly gross.  I was just playing around with this lynnderella polish I have and didn't do a proper mani or clean up.  But I thought it looked pretty cool so I thought I'd share!

Sick of Tiger Yet?

Here's nother iteration of the tiger mani.
This time with holo.

China Glaze Spin Me Round with Tiger from Essence stampy plate
 I love this polish. It's a great palette cleanser but with flair!  haha, especially when you add my FAVORITE IMAGE FROM A STAMPY PLATE EVER!  lol.  Yea, kidna obsessed with this tiger print now.  I had a comforter years ago that I got for xmas that was tiger print.  It was from Delia*s and it was the coolest tiger print faux fur blanket EVER!  haha!  miss that thing.  I used it till it was ragged, of course!  And my bed looked like a pimped out pimp bed for that time....  =0P

Magnetic Tiger Mani Tutorial

So a little while back I had posted this mani on the boards and got *quite* the reaction. =0)

Magnetic Tiger Print Fauxnad Mani

Sure, me and the SO thought it looked cool, but when the rest of the world notices, it kinda feels nice.  Ya know, the rest of the world that is my online nail polish friends.  haha! Cause what other world is there?!

Anyhoo, I got a lot of questions about it so I though I'd do a little tutorial for it on the bloggie-blog.

So here we go, the Tiger Mani Tutorial begins...

Feeling Nautical

ok, ok.

I know I used the star image last time, but I just couldn't help myself!  Having too much fun with these new (to me) plates!

I wanted to practice getting the design in the center of my nail by the cuticle and I thought the continuity of having all nails the same was a nice change of pace (from having an accent nail).

Plus, I mean, come on.  Who doesn't love the nautical look!?  AND china glaze First Mate IS a pretty awesome blue (a one coater on most nails)!

Exhibit A:

China Glaze First Mate stamped w/Konad white & Image Plate BM206

For Those About To Rock

I Salute You!  

haha...  any AC/DC lovers out there?  How 'bout lovers of the movie School of Rock!? I love that movie so much!

Anyhoo, I just got my new set of Bundle monster plates (25 piece set) in the mail a couple days ago.  Which I was totally stoked about b/c amazon predicted they wouldn't get here for another 5 days or so.  

Early nail mail ROCKS!  hahah!

So, I had to try them out.  Among my favorite and most anticipated images are the skull and the nautical star.  Thus, this mani was born!

I tried them out on the "practice mani" below:

Skull Practice mani with plate BM 206, BM 211, BM 08
More after the break!!!!!!

Franken - Skool of Hard Rox

Here's a polish I made the other day.  I was really wanting the new Essie "School of Hard Rocks," but I just don't feel right paying such high prices for a cream polish I can make at home for MUCH less money.

So I made it myself! =)

At lease I think I did!  lol.  I compared it to the Essie at the store and I'm sure they're VERY close! ;)

Lacquerish Original franken- Skool of Hard Rox!

Skool of Hard Rox - hmm.. dusty goodness!

different lighting this time just 'cause I can!
Anyway, when I first made it it was too green.  And not dusty enough!  But I think this time it's right on!

A dusty green-is blue-ish teal color that's neither too dark or too light.  It's so gorgeous! And very pigmented as well!  This is 2 coats with SV on top.  Sigh.  I think I'm in love!

For this franken I used a dusty green base (the ULTA version of OPI JITNB) and added a bright blue polish from dollar tree, some white, and some black.  Rinse and repeat until it looks right!  Plus I always have to add a bunch of thinner cause doing that much bottle opening and shaking makes things rather goopy.

Waddya think!?  XD


Ok guys. I get SO MANY EMAILS AND COMMENTS asking me where to get Lynnderella polishes. And I totally understand why! But it's gotten so overwhelming to answer you all individually. I don't have time! lol

Lynn has her own blog (and blogsales) here.

And Llarowe sells her stuff here.

So go forth and buy tons of it! And make sure to tell 'em I sent ya!
Thanks for understanding! Lacquerish =0)
