Unicorn Pee!

Hi All!
Today I have LA Splash, Nail Splash in Embellished for you! The bottom of the bottle actually says "Embellshed" but seeing as that isn't a word, I'm assuming it's a typo.

Often times when a polish fanatic finds a polish that is sparkly, and eye-popping they will call it "Unicorn Pee" and that's exactly what I think of Embellished! My pictures of this polish don't really do it justice. It's a beautiful pink based polish with very fine pink glitter, a little bit of very fine blue glitter, larger pieces of a pale pink/silver glitter, and still larger pieces of holographic glitter. In the sunshine it is stunning! I have a really blurry picture so you can see all the different colors the holographic glitter changes to in the light.

This was two coats of Embellished and two coats of thin topcoat, since it's a fairly chunky. You could probably get away with one coat of a thicker topcoat, like Seche Vite.

See all the colors?! How pretty!!! I'm loving this polish! I've seen LA Splash at Ulta, but I found this on a display at my local Harmon Discount store (which is owned and operated by Bed Bath and Beyond, I believe, so sometimes you can find things in their beauty section). It retails for around $3.99, so it's not a budget buster either!

What do you guys think? I know that it's hard to tell in the pictures, but do you think it's worthy of the "Unicorn Pee" title?

Holy Holo!

Hi All!

Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while; my nails have been a wreck! They've been weak and peeling, which is a problem I get quite often :( I just got a new treatment for this, which I hope to post about in a week or so.

In the meantime, I have a brand new purchase to show you! Nfu Oh #65 (the images are all either in direct sunlight, or indirect sunlight):

So the coolest part about Nfu Oh holos is their dense, linear, rainbow coloration in direct sunlight. #65 is actually a really pretty powder-blue (think Cinderella's gown in the Disney movie) and it dramatically changes color in the sun, which is why I made a .gif for you!

See?! How freaking cool is that?! This is why I love Nfu Oh holos!! I have the silver (#61) too, but since this just came in the mail yesterday, I had to post it! Nfu Oh is a Korean brand (pronounced enefu oh) and while they are widely know and loved for their flakies as much as their holos, the holos are my personal favorite. Someday, when/if I have money, I want to own them all!

Nfu Oh #65 can be purchased for $12.50 at Fabuloustreet.

The price is a little steep, but they are well worth it. PLUS Fabuloustreet has free shipping within the USA! Win/Win!

I also have the Aqua Base for Holo polishes that they sell, and I highly recommend it to prevent drag and streaks!
