Nubar 2010 over OPI Tease-y Does It

Ahh yummy flakies <3 This is Nubar 2010 over OPI Tease-y Does It. Tease-y Does It is a beautiful shimmering deep eggplant. I used two coats, and then topped it with two thin coats of Nubar 2010. I prefer 2010 to some of the Nfu-Ohs I have simply because it is a bit more dense with flakes, and dries very quickly. It looks incredible over any colour, so grab it if you can. I bought my bottle of 2010 from , it comes in and out of stock pretty quickly though. I have noticed they have restocked 2010 a few times and sell out. You can also purchase it from who have it in stock at the moment. Definately worth picking up if you don't have a bottle already :)

Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy

Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy from the 2011 Beyond the Mistletoe Collection. I loooove this <3 but really it looks best in my opinion layered, on it's own it is gritty and hard to work up to opacity evenly. This is 3 coats, it goes on thickly. I love the holographic glitter in this one, out of the whole collection this one seemed to have the most holo glitter. It is gorgeous layered over a creme with a thick top coat. Yummy :)

A polish nightmare..

Ah Revlon Sunshine Sparkle... I had high hopes but this has to be possibly the worst nail polish I have tried. It looks pretty in the bottle, a cute pastel yellow with some light silver shimmer. But go to apply it and the nightmare begins :/ this is 5 coats, all went on streaky and painfully. It bubbles. It never EVER dries. It is a bit chalky and the colour on me looks really bad. Much worse in person... Sometimes Revlon has amazing nail polishes, I have tried many one and two coaters that look stunning from them. But this one makes me wonder - how can they approve this for sale knowing the formula is so bad. Unfortunately from seeing other blogs they think the same of this polish so my bottle can't be the only terrible one :(
I am curious to know, how have your experiences been with yellows and do you know of any good ones to recommend? All the ones I have tried are at least 3 coats if I'm lucky, and often bad application. If anyone knows a 2 coater yellow that is gorgeous please pass on the name :) I am on a search!

Milani 3D Holographic Hi-Res

Oldie and a goodie. I know everyone has seen these 1000000 times but they are that awesome that they deserve it. Milani 3D Holographic Hi-Res is a super cute light purple holo. Hi-Res has a smooth formula that is opaque in 2-3 coats depending on how thick you apply it. And always gets compliments <3 ;)

IsaDora Violet

Just a quick pic of IsaDora Violet. I love this for 3 reasons -
1. It reminds me of Sailor Mars
2. It has a jelly blurple base
3. It was a present :) they are always the best type of nail polishes
Shown is two coats, the base is a little watery so isn't super easy around the cuticles but not too bad. The magenta shimmer is beautiful and pops against the bluer jelly like base. In person there is a little more visible nail line than this picture shows. And it dries super shiny :) a good go-to purple for me. <3
