Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Black Holo Glitter

This is the last of the posts for the UnTried Polish Theme Week.  It was a great success for me, 15 polishes checked off!  This mani is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear In the Spotlight and Wet ‘n’ Wild Kaliedoscope (not untried) over China Glaze Cosmic, with a base of WnW Black Creme. Accent Nail is WnW Silvivor with the two glitters on top. Cosmic wasn’t as glittery as I was hoping from the bottle, the base was too thick to let the colors come through. So I had to bling it up…maaaybe too much, lol.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Blue

This is Last Friday Night by OPI, from the Katy Perry Collection. I layered it over Sally Hansen HD in Blu.  On reflection, I would do white under everything to get rid of the VNL, as these are both pretty sheer.  I do like how it came out bottle color for the OPI though.  The colors worked really nice together.

I like it in the shade better, you can see all the colors in the glitter that way, instead of just a reflection.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Red Creme

For the first day of this theme week I did a red creme, Hey Sailor by China Glaze with Ruby Pumps (also China Glaze) as an accent nail.


Outdoors in the morning
Hey Sailor is nice and creamy looking, little bit more orange leaning than Ruby Pumps. Application was awesome.  I loved it as soon as it was on! Definitely now high on my list of reds.
