Essie - Armed and Ready

Interesting color. Brown, with an intense golden shimmer in the sunlight.

Something I don't usually do...

 Remember how crazy I was about Ebalay's Golden Green Iridescent polish? I tried it over an oldie but favorite polish of mine - OPI's Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ. I thought the purple-red color would complement the Ebalay nicely. I was right! Look how pretty!  Then I stuck some 3D Nail Seals on. I usually don't use nail stickers because I'm too klutzy to use them right, but these were pretty foolproof.
I love butterflies!

 These little butterflies come with different color crystals too! They're so pretty!

 You get quite a few stickers for only $3.50. Once you seal them with topcoat, they are pretty smooth on the nail and stay on quite nicely.

You can find these and LOTS more nail art stickers at KKCenterHK and of you use the code "willasshinytips" you get 10% off!

These were sent to me for review.

Go Revlon! Moon Candy flaky duo.

 How cool is this!!  I swooned when I saw these. They looked sooo pretty!
This is from the "Moon Candy" display with about seven other duos.

I chose Supernova because the pink flakies were very different from any of the other flakies I own.

 The bottom layer is a dark grey. It applies so smooth and opaque in one swipe.
Unfortunately, as you can see I was a little over-eager and applied the flakies before the first coat had dried suffieciently. Then to add to the mess, my Seche Vite was a little thick.

Not the polishes fault, all user error.
Still looks pretty sweet though! Going to try this again VERY SOON!
Retails for $7.99 at Rite Aid. I bought mine on the 40% off sale and used a Register Reward, so I got it for like $3 bucks. Not too shabby!

Wet-n-Wild "No Gas, Electrically Charged" Magnetic, with display photo!

I actually bought this one first and went back for the other one.
As you can see, I had a little trouble with the magnet. There's no finger guard, and it's a little awkward to get the finger placement just right.
This color is bangin' in real life. I realize it just looks sort of blackish-grey here.
But it was more like a blackened tealish color. Reminded me a little of the WnW Craze color "morbid" from a few years back.

The name is a little absurd, but cute.
$4.99 at Rite Aid which is the only place I have seen these so far.

Prepare for awesomeness!

I honestly don't think I have ever come across a polish this amazing before.

Yes, this is the same polish! It flashes from green to almost purple.

It's made by a company called Ebalay, who I had never heard of before, but WOW! I need all of these now!! This color is "Golden Green Iridescent".
 KKCenterHK suggests layering the iridescent polishes over black. I wanted to try it alone first because, well, I'm just stubborn like that! This was three coats. Drying time wasn't bad. Wear time was incredibly long. The brush is one of those nice, fluffy ones. Bottle is very similar to O.P.I.
 Look at that shine!

 No Flash.

KKCenterHK is offering a 10% discount with the code "willasshinytips".

Oldie and goodie - China Glaze BFF

I can't remember if I have ever worn this before.

 But, I was in the mood for something pink and holo.
 You can't really tell in these pictures, but I had a terrible time applying this. It was a little chunky and streaky.
But, it positively glows and looks amazing in the sunshine, so it's a win!

Wet-n-Wild Drawn together by Force *Magnetic!*

 How pretty is this bright emerald green?
 I did a better job with the magnet this time. The formula on these polishes is fantastic.
 I love the little square bottle. The brush is perfect.
 My ONLY complaint is the magnet. It sucks. It's awkward to use and there is no finger guard to make sure you don't touch it to your nails. Otherwise, I'd have to say this is one of the better magnetic polishes out there right now.
I found these at Rite Aid for $4.99
