enchanted polish - feb 2013 congratulations

this is one thin coat of each over mr. big in black by ozotic.  the enchanted's were purchased at http://enchantedpolish.bigcartel.com, mr. big and the igel topcoat was purchased from llarowe.

the topcoat worked surprisingly well.  i got about 5 days out of this manicure with no chipping or peeling. 

feb.  has to be one of my favorite enchanteds.  the color shift in this one is so strong and the holo is gorgeous.

this is picture heavy like all enchanted posts ;)

enchanted polish - castle comparison

this is going to be an extremely picture heavy post.  these polishes have so much going on with each of them and i tried to capture them in different light, different flash,  no flash,  etc.  the only thing i couldn't do was the florescent light in the kitchen.  luck would have it that both lights burnt out when i turned on the switch this morning.  here's hoping maintenance can switch them out soon enough today.

anyhow, here's a comparison between castle on a cloud and ice castle.  both colors are 1 thin coat over cult nails - nevermore and a coat of seche on top.

though they look similar in certain light, they are completely different when side by side.  please scroll through all of these pictures to see what i was able to capture.

pinky and ring fingers are castle on a cloud, middle and pointer fingers are ice castle.

enchanted polish - castle on a cloud

this was purchased from enchanted's site at http://enchantedpolish.bigcartel.com.  i don't even know where to begin with describing this...it's holo, it's glass fleck, it shifts color depending on the light.  it's amazing in person.

i layered 2 coats of castle on a cloud over 1 coat of cult nails - nevermore.  1 coat of seche vite.

it is seriously impossible to photograph how this polish changes when worn, pic heavy post ahead....

photo dump

i haven't posted lately due to lack of time and lack of feeling motivated lol.  it has been a busy month with stuff with my dad and mom going on.

anyhow,  i've still taken pictures of manicures and instead of making posts for each of these i'm just going to dump them into one post.  i'll try to start posting regularly again because someone *cough* brooke *cough*  keeps on my ass every time i talk to her.  thanks, sister.

anyhow, most of these have bottle shots of what was used.   if there are any questions, feel free to ask and i'll try to remember what was used.  the literary lacquers one was purchased from their etsy.  cult nails was from cultnails.com, china glaze was from sally's and everything else was purchased from llarowe.   i swear i will  never let my posts get this far behind again.

literary lacquers - more like fire than light
