Bejeweled mystique

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’s Mystique

Nubar’s Mystique is the perfect darker teal polish. It has the amazing formula that I’m used to with Nubar; it’s great during application, needs two coats for opacity and dries fast. Aaaand it’s so beautiful 🙂


Gina Tricot’s Candy Pink

As far as pale pinks goes, Gina Tricot’s Candy Pink is one of the prettier and more flattering ones. It contains golden shimmer that gives it a cute glow and a little more depth 🙂

Application was good, two coats were needed for opacity and it dried reasonably fast.

Nubar’s Rouge

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 🙂

Barry M’s Mint Green

Barry M’s Mint Green is a decent mint green creme polish. Mint green polishes are among my favorites to wear by themselves and use in nail art. And there are so many in my stash… Unfortuntely Mint Green was a tad irritating to apply and won’t be a favorite but the color is wonderful 🙂



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!

Cult Nails’ Annalicious

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.
