Twinsie Tuesday: grey and gold

Good morning everyone!! I apologize for missing the last two weeks. I've been prepping for baby girl's arrival and polishing my nails was the last thing on my mind. In fact, before polishing my nails for this post, I hadn't polished my nails since the 9th and even that was non-complex. I hope I can get the next few weeks pre-scheduled.

Anyways, for today's design our prompt is gray and gold. I think these two colors together is a sophisticated combination. Definitely a color combination I should do more often. Today I wanted to go for a layered design. I started with Sinful Colors My Turn and then layered on Sally Hansen ColorFoil Liquid Gold to the middle of my nail. Once that was dry I added another coat of My Turn to the bottom third of my nails. I topped it with a Sinful Colors gold and silver glitter topper.

Madam Glam Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Hey everyone! I was contacted by a new to me company, Madam Glam to do a review. Along with the review, I also have a coupon code to share for 40% off. Just enter MerryChristmas at checkout valid until December 26.

Madam Glam is a growing cosmetic brand based out of New York. They have gels, nail polishes and color changing gels with a formula that is cruelty - free,  5 free and vegan.

All swatches are were done with two coats of polish. Each swatch is shown with and without flash. So let's get started. Up first is Dusty Navy. It's a light navy creme that is opaque in just one coat but I typically apply two coats for good measure.



Next we have Dark & Classy. It's a blackened purple creme with a very shiny finish.


Another Glass is a deep berry wine with tons of shimmer. It's perfect for the holiday season without being the traditional colors.


Next up is Wine Divinea magenta-berry shimmer 


Last but not least is Cinderella Shoes, a transparent base packed with purple and holo glitters. Even with one coat the glitter was densely packed. If I don't wear this for Christmas, I'll definitely have it on for New Years or for my baby shower.


I originally intended to swatch Cinderella Shoes over each polish but because of the density of the polish I only have it over Dusty Navy. I feel like this is a stand alone polish.

Do you see anything you want to try out? I definitely recommend Cinderella Shoes and Another Glass. All the polishes applied easily and had good opacity. If you're interested in purchasing these or any other Madam Glam product, check out the Madam Glam website and don't forget to use the coupon code MerryChristmas that is valid until December 26.

Twinsie Tuesday : special holiday mani (CYNA Christmas Trees)

Hey everyone! How's everything going?  Even though we are on hiatus, this week the Twinsie ladies are back with a special holiday manicure. 

I love holiday manicures but I haven't got a chance to do any this year.  I decided on Christmas trees since that's one of the prompts I missed for the Challenge Your Nail Art 12 days of Christmas challenge I normally participate in.

I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Extreme Wear Pucker Up. Once that was dry I used acrylic paint for my trees and lights on  the trees. I topped it off with a matte top coat. 
Be sure to check out the other Twinsies to see what they chose for their holiday manicure.
