Orly’s Buried Alive.

Orly’s Buried Alive was part of the Dark Shadows collection quartet and one of my favorite brown polishes (and that says a lot as I generally dislike or feel indifferent to brown) 🙂

The base is a lovely mud brown color packed full of golden copperish shimmer that glows beautifully. The formula was perfect; easy to apply, opaque at two coats and dried reasonably fast.

Catrice’s Steel My Heart

Catrice’s Steel My Heart is a gritty, matte dark brownish charcoal polish with both green, purple and (mostly) blue microglitter.

I can’t believe how awesome the formula of Steel My Heart is; it was incredibly easy to apply, opaque in two coats and dried (as always with mattes) very, very fast.

OPI’s DS Desire

OPI’s DS Desire was part of a package from one of the lovely ladies of my birthday swap group last year. I squeeled with joy! As you can see the holohraphic effect is insane and the brownish golden color is so pretty.

Nail Art Sunday: Silvery Power

I was in the mood for some kind of tape manicure and decided to my whip out my trusted Scotch tape and just use Cult Nails’ dark brown Swanbourne as the base since I was already wearing it. Barry M’s Silver Foil and Cult Nails’ Power Thief are used for the second and third layer. Brown polishes are few and far between in my stash and I can remember why now… I rarely like the outcome when matching them to other polishes, unless it’s something minty ^^

I need to make more tape manicures from now on though… They are a ton of fun to design and paint.

It’s Nail Art Sunday @ LeLack 🙂

Nails Inc’s Richmond Terrace

Nails Inc was a totally new brand for me before I ordered a trio from Richmond Terrace is described by the brand itself as a rich plum but I’ve seen it describes as raisin colored by bloggers and I would have to agree…I can’t see much of plum anywhere.

How could I not know about the amazingness that is Nails Inc?! The formula is beyond amazing; I’ve never painted my nails with a polish that was perfection application wise until now. It was extremely easy to apply, opaque at two coats and dried really, really fast.
