NOTD Nails Inc. Pudding Lane

Hello my beauties!! Today I have another amazing nail polish! I have been wanting Nails Inc. Pudding Lane since I first saw it a few months ago on a blog. I meant to order it from Sephora but I just kept forgetting. So yesterday I was at Sephora for a job interview (Fingers crossed) and I did a little shopping before I left. I picked up Pudding Lane from the sprinkles collection which was released a few months ago. There are like four different shades in this collection and I wanted Pudding Lane more than any of the others! So as soon as I got home, I put it on and wow!! It did not disappoint!! Pudding Lane is a milky robin's egg blue creme packed with purple and gold chunky glitter. It looks like sprinkles on blue frosting hence the name Sprinkles collection! The formula is amazing! It was pretty much opaque in two coats but I used three just to cover up the very few bald spots I had. Each brushstroke was jam packed with glitter! My only gripe is that Nails Inc. bottles are .33 oz as opposed to .50 oz that most other polishes like OPI and China Glaze are. So for $9.50 you get alot less product. Oh and this dries to a really gritty texture. I added one coat of Gelous gel nail coat and then a thick coat of Seche Vite and my mani ended up way smoother than if I didn't use Gelous. Here is three coats of Pudding Lane:

I looooooooove this polish! So pretty!! What do you guys think? Thanks for reading!!

NOTD Orly Be Brave over Nails Inc. Chelsea

Hi everyone!! I can't believe it's September already!! This summer flew by! Anyway, today I have for you Orly Be Brave. Be Brave is part of the new uber mega glitter Glam FX collection that Orly recently put out. Be Brave is a pink holo bar glitter in a clear base. The formula is ok, you can't just brush on bar glitter, you have to pretty much dab it on. I'm usually not a huge fan of bar glitter because it sticks out over the nail and it's annoying to apply, but Be Brave isn't so bad and I really love how it looks on my nails! Here's is two coats over Nails Inc. Chelsea which is a plum black:

I love this combo! These pics are with a glossy topcoat, after two days I added a matte topcoat:
The matte topcoat adds a really cool flat effect. I really like it! I really like this glitter and I can't wait to get even more glitters from this collection! What do you think of bar glitter? Thanks for reading!
