Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - My Precious

This is a magical nail polish from none other than Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer. Julie can do no wrong and this polish is sooo right.

My Precious was a GWP for Black Friday 2016. It is described as "Medium blue-leaning purple packed with silver microflakies and red-gold-green shifting glitters." The shift in these glitters in crazy! It's like the unicorn pee of glitters. It's also not gloopy or gritty as one might expect. I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat.

Elevation Polish, Cupcake Polish and Girly Bits... Oh my!

I'm going to be honest... I'm really proud of this combination of polishes. Again, reminiscent of Springtime. I borrowed 2/3 of the polishes I'm wearing today from Natalie (#natcatswap) and she is a genius when it comes to nail polish combinations. Her nails always look amazing and she pairs polishes so beautifully. Consider this my tribute to her!

Index and Middle - Elevation Polish SBP: Sunrise Alpenglow (2 coats)
Ring - Cupcake Polish Bubbles and Baubles (2 coats)
Pinky - Girly Bits Xmas & O's (2 coats)
And top coat to finish off all the nails.

I really wish I owned Cupcake Polish Bubbles and Baubles... so if anyone wants to give me their bottle I would be eternally grateful *cue the cheesy grin*

Glam Polish - Sweet Peach

I have yet another Spring-y polish on my nails today. This is Glam Polish Sweet Peach which I think was a Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive (Google tells me that this is correct). Can you tell how desperately I want for it to be Spring? There's SO. MUCH. SNOW. Ugh. I borrowed this from Natalie as part of our #natcatswap

While this is super pretty I think it would look even better with a tan. I had a bit of a hard time trying to apply this one. I am wearing 3 coats plus top coat. It had a tendency to drag and be patchy. It's so pretty though. I have no hard feelings for this polish. 

It's also Valentine's Day so yeah. Have at it. This is sort of appropriate what with its name being Sweet Peach and all. That's probably a term of endearment that people use, right? :P

Cupcake Polish - A Mother's Love

Cupcake Polish A Mother's Love was (is?) a Rainbow Connection exclusive polish that I have borrowed from Natalie as part of our #natcatswap. This is a coral pink linear holo. This applied really well in two coats. If only I had a bit of a tan... then this would look phenomenal! Sadly, it's February in Toronto and I'm pretty darn pale. It's not cute. But, alas, Spring is coming!

Wing Dust Creations - Gilty Pleasure

Wing Dust Creations is a relatively local brand of polish and it's been around for a looong time. This is my first time trying any of their polishes and I really, really like it. Gilty Pleasures is an incredibly beautiful topper with 23 karat gold leaf, silver leaf, and purple iridescent flakes. UNF!

I am wearing one coat over Chanel Khaki Vert. I love how perfectly sparse the leaves and flakes are. It's so perfect. I want to wear it over top of everything. It also feels incredibly luxurious especially over a Chanel ;)

Girly Bits - Grandma Got Run Over by a John Deere

There is so much going on in this Girly Bits polish but it comes together so beautifully. I don't know how Pam does it but each of her polishes are so perfect. Grandma Got Run Over by a John Deere is one half of the December COTM duo. It's so pretty and Christmassy yet Springy at the same time.

Two coats, no top coat. It dries to such a high shine. Green perfection! (And I don't even like greens!)

Girly Bits polishes are available here. Follow Girly Bits on Instagram and Facebook.

Chanel - Khaki Vert

Whenever I wear a Chanel polish I feel super classy. It's probably a bit of snobbery but in all honesty Chanel polishes have the MOST INCREDIBLE formulation. Honestly, if you love nail polish you owe it to yourself to try a Chanel polish because they apply so beautifully and dry with such shine and last really, really well.

I borrowed Chanel Khaki Vert from Natalie and it's not a colour I would normally wear but if I wasn't so pale it might look half decent. It applied so so so well. I just can't get over it. I have had a few Chanels but this was my first creme and WOW! Two coats, no top coat. Just flawless!
