Today I have a manicure for you that consists of two favorites of mine; Nubar’s teal crelly Mystique and KBShimmer’s Bejeweled. I love to use the latter in this kind of sloppy glitter gradient and this combination reminds me of coins in wishing wells 🙂
Nubar is truly a favorite brand for me and even though this is hardly my kind of pink polish I like Nubar’s Rouge well enough. Rouge is a creme polish with Nubars wonderful formula; it was easy to apply and dried fast. It needs a top coat badly though.
These pictures show it off a bit less bright pink then it should be 🙂
When Cherry Culture had their 40 % off NYX items recently I ordered 26 of their polishes…

Cult Nails’ orange toned red shimmer Annalicious is the base for a manicure that reminds me of the circus or an amusement park 🙂 I used Innisfree’s glitter 107 with its mix of bar and hex glitter in a multitude of colors for the sloppy gradient.
For once I’m actually posting a NOTD; I’m wearing this to work today!
The first to be swatched (and worn for two days… hence the tip wear) from my haul from Cult Nails is Annalicious. It is such a lovely shimmery orange based red full with red and golden shimmer.
It was a dream to use; easy to apply, fully opaque at two generous coats and dried very fast.
As you can see it was hard to photograph accuratelythough; the two first pictures are showing the color with way too much blue in it and the three other pictures are a tad too orange. A mix of them would give a fair representation of the lovely color.
