Are you ready for Fall yet??? I am! Although this will be my first year ever experiencing Fall since we don't have "seasons" in Florida (Florida seasons go like this: hot, disgustingly hot, hot, kinda hot.. lol). So I'm looking forward to participating in this season everyone calls Fall ;)
Miss Fancy Pants...
Miss Fancy Pants is an opaque beige with a hint of grey. The formula was very nice and it applied smooth and even, it was pretty much opaque in 1 coat but 2 coats makes it even and completely opaque.
Don't Sweater It...
Don't Sweater It is a darker more brown version of Miss Fancy Pants. Again this a an opaque creme that applied very smooth and even.
Recessionista is a deep purple creme with a red base. This one seemed a bit thicker but still applied nicely, however it did need 2 coats to make it opaque and even.
Head Mistress is a beautiful candy apple red. This one applied amazingly and was opaque in 2 coats. If you are fair to light, like me, then this is a must have red! I'm not a red fan but just like having that perfect red lipstick everyone needs that perfect red polish and for me this one is it!
Skirting The Issue...
Skirting The Issue is a blood red crelly (creme+ jelly). This was a tricky one to apply, some parts of the nail would look sheer while other parts would be opaque. It took 3 coats for the color to become opaque and even. Was not a fan of this color.
Stylenomics is a deep forest green creme. This is a pretty green but if you apply it too thick it's one of those colors that can be mistaken for black. The formula on this one was great and 2 coats made it opaque and even. Overall: This collection is really nice and great for Fall. All of them, with the exception of Skirting The Issue applied smooth, even and were opaque in 2 coats. The formula on these is great, not too thin but not thick and goopy. And they are super shiny! For some of them it was hard to pick a good picture because the reflection of the background was so strong, but I'm not complaining. =) **This collection was provided by the lovely people at Stixie an online beauty store.
*sidenote: the packaging was amazing, I've never received nail polish so well packed!*
We recently took a trip to the USS Hornet so I figured since we would be outside what better polish to wear than my Layla holo. I usually like to layer my holos over a base color to intensify (and conserve the polish) them so I layered Layla Mercury Twilight over Essie No Place Like Chrome and magic happened...
These babies were insanely shiny! They reminded me a a holographic foil or sticker, I must now try all my other Layla holos over chromes!!

Then to make them more fancy I added ChG Broken Hearted and WnW Black Creme (dot is the same holo combo). The result made me feel like a sexy Barbie® lol...
Sadly almost all holo effects were lost when I applied the crackle but instead they gave a beautiful glow .
This is my 100th post!!! When I first created this blog I didn't know if anyone would care, would read it or even like my nails. Now here I am 100 posts later and I have some amazing followers and I have been mentioned on a blog that I truly admire ( nailXchange). I want to thank all of you for your support and I present to you another installment in my Bohemian Series, Bohemian Butterfly....
Started out as a needle drag...
Then I've been dying to try out the butterfly wing trend and I thought this would be the perfect background..
For my first attempt I happy with how these came out but I think I need to practice it more.
I used all 6 of the Bohemian colors over WnW Black Creme and Essie No Place Like Chrome for the dots.
