Dreamland Lacquer Game of Thrones Duo

*Purchased by Me*

Hi everyone! In continuing with my Game of Thrones-inspired polish posts, next I have my very first Game of Thrones polish purchase...waaay back from 2012. Dreamland Lacquer (though it was Smitten Polish at the time) released the first GoT polishes that I recall, and at the time I had never even seen the show or read the books. They were gorgeous though, so I couldn't help but grab them and they are still beautiful today. Of course these two beauties were long ago discontinued, but I couldn't help but share them in the spirit of GoT!

Illyrian Polish Moonbow

*Purchased by Me*

Hi everyone! I recently picked up my first Illyrian Polishes when I was buying some things from Color4Nails (I had to get some more of my fav strengthener, Duri Rejuvacote). The first one that I decided to wear was Moonbow, which I could not resist when I saw the flakie goodness in person.

Illyrian Polish Moonbow is grey-tinged jelly filled with holo pigment, holo microglitters, holo flakes, and a variety of iridescent flakes. Formula started off sheer, but built up very nicely to opacity in 3 thin coats. It did have a slight texture when it dried down, but not a lot so 2 coats of my regular topcoat were enough to smooth it out (KBShimmer Clearly On Top). This polish is DIVINE! It has so many sparkly/shifty things going on and it's even better in person (photos just don't do the flakes justice in my opinion.) This was, unfortunately, a June COTM shade, so it is sold out now (except I do still see it available at Hypnotic Polish), but Illyrian has a multitude of gorgeous, complex polishes to choose from if you like this one.

Pink Madness!

*Purchased by Me*

Hi everyone! Earlier this year I went on a pink polish buying spree, so I have collected swatches to share all at once with you! These are all really different, but fantastic pinks and I hope you enjoy my spam session! I'm thinking of doing this with my whole collection as well to get wear a variety of my untrieds...what color should I do next?

Nail Art With Born Pretty Store Feather Water Decals

*Purchased by Me*

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun summery mani to share with you! I was scrolling through Facebook recently and one of my friends was wearing one of my favorite yellows ever, OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, so I had to pull it out for a mani. After I got it on my nails, I thought I would jazz it up with some nail art and I realized it had been an age since I had used any water decals. I found these lovely pink and white feather water decals from Born Pretty Store in my stash and they looked so pretty with the yellow! Water decals never fail to make me happy when I decide to use them, I need to do it more!
