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 – Purple Holo

This is Milani Hi-Res, from the 3D holographic collection.  I looove all of the polishes in this series. Super bonus: this was so easy to remove.  Dreamy!  A nice simple mani with high impact.


Sorry I didn’t get any pictures in the sun. That’s where the holo really shines!

NOTD: First Milani Manicure

The first Milani polish that I used, from the 3D collection, was the green, Hi-Res. I really like it and this mani was also my first attempt at Konad, with a few cute butterflies done in Bijou Blue, a navy shimmer Wet ‘n’ Wild Wild Shine polish.


I learned that I should wait a teensy bit longer before putting on my topcoat (Seche Vite), I had a bit of bleeding from the Konad.  And that I love holos.
