Time And Relative Dimension In Space

Hello Ninjas!

I hope you're all ready for a great three day weekend! I'll be working some extra hours but that's already since my parents are visiting next weekend. I just get to stress about packing and cleaning until they get here.

Tonight's manicure is three coats of Time And Relative Dimension In Space (TARDIS) from LynBDesigns. TARDIS is a navy blue jelly with silver square glitter suspended throughout. If you don't already know, the TARDIS is the name of the spaceship from Doctor Who which is hands down my favorite TV series. This is a really pretty nail polish but my bottle needed a little thinner to make the formula more manageable. TARDIS was also a bit of a topcoat eater so this is pictured with two coats of TC.

Review: Zoya Tinsley

Good evening Ninjas!

I hope you've been doing well. The weather in NC has been very off an on. The last few days have been scattered thunderstorms interspersed with sunny spots. And you never know which will be happening when you need to go anywhere! I've taken to keeping my umbrella in my purse all the time.

Tonight's manicure is a polish sent for review by Zoya, Tinsely. Zoya describes Tinsley as "a full-coverage, rose gold foil metallic." Tinsley is one of the polishes I was super excited to try and it was very unique. At some angles it was a lovely rose color while at others is was a bright metallic gilded rose. This was two smooth coats and it wore very well!

Purple Parachute

Hello Ninjas!

It's almost Friday and that means it nearly the weekend. Does anyone have any neat plans for the weekend? I'll be learning cool secrets about the history of the Togakura Ryu of Ninjutsu on Sunday since my mother is far away on the West Coast. Hopefully you get to spend time with your mom this weekend!

Tonight's manicure is two coats of Purple Parachute from last year's Sephora Pantone Jewel Lacquer collection. This polish has been hailed as a dupe for the highly sought Scrangie but in reality the shimmer in PP is blue leaning teal instead of the green from RBL's Scrangie. Still, this was a pretty polish. The formula was a little on the thick side and not self leveling as I would have hoped thus the uneven look here.

Orange Layering

Good evening Ninjas!

Well, our loan passed underwriting so we're going to be home owners! It's very exciting and I'm starting to feel like a real grown up now. My favorite part of the house is the extra space in the back yard that I plan to turn into an archery range. I'll be Hawkeye in no time!

Tonight's manicure is one I did for a creative layering challenge. The base is two coats of butter LONDON MacBeth followed by one coat of a nameless orange duochrome by Funky Fingers and topped off with a coat of *Chloe from Zoya's Fleck Effect collection. The overall manicure was quite pretty and very interesting to look at in different lighting scenarios.

Sally Hansen Firefly

Good evening Ninjas,

How was your week? Mine was a little hectic but fun so that was good. Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day, are there any places around you participating?

Tonight's manicure is two coats of Sally Hansen Firefly. This polish was actually much more multichromatic in person and these pictures don't do it any justice. While wearing it, I was able to see gold, orange,  pink, green, and the occasional blue flash on my nails.

Orange, some pink flash on the pinky.
Gold with slight green tinting around edges.
