NOTD Illamasqua Omen pics and review!!

Hello lovelies, so a few weeks back I picked up Illamasqua Omen nail polish from the Summer 2013 Paranormal collection. I wish I would have picked up all three of these gorgeous neon colors!! Omen is a shimmery neon green. I put Omen on last night and first of all the formula is like buttah! It went on so effortlessly and smooth and that's rare for a neon! This is just two coats!!

I love this color so much!! I wish I had a UV light too because this glows under UV light!! I know Illamasqua polishes are a bit pricey at $17.00 a pop but the formula is pretty awesome and they have some great colors, finishes and textures! I will definitely be picking up more Illamasqua polishes in the future!! Thanks for reading and make sure to check out my Instagram @Nailsneverfails and my Facebook page Nails Never Fails.

NOTD China Glaze Tart-y for the Party with Nails Inc. Fibre Optic Mayfair Mews!!

Hey everyone! So the other day I wanted to put on something glittery and funky. I had just gotten Nails Inc. Fibre optic Mayfair Mews from my Sephora so I wanted to try it!
  • This is part of a new line released by Nails Inc. Mayfair Mews is a clear base jam packed with purple and holo bar glitter. I have a love hate relationship with bar glitter. I love the way it looks but hate the way it applies. I hate when the glitter sticks off my nails! Anyway, first I applied two coats of China Glaze Tart-y for the Party which is such a pretty lavender. This is from the 2013 spring collection. I haven't tried it yet so this was perfect.
Then I added one coat of Nails Inc. Mayfair Mews. I think they had another nail polish of the same name too! Anyway, the application was pretty easy. The brush was packed with glitter and I didn't have too much trouble with the glitter sticking off my nail. I had to place some of it.
The holo bar glitter didn't photograph well but it's there in person. I received a lot of compliments from other glitter junkies!! As you can see I had some scattered glitter here and there but not too bad.
Here's a closeup of Mayfair Mews. You can see the scattered holo bar glitter. I topped this with one coat of gelous gel top coat and seche vite. This mani lasted almost a whole week without chipping!! Have any of you picked up any of these Nails Inc Fibre Optic polishes? Thanks for reading!!

NOTD Essie For the Twill of it!

Hey everyone! I'm so loving the Fall nail polish collections so far!! I picked up Essie For the Twill of it from their 2013 Fall collection at Rite Aid the other day. It's a duo chrome beauty!! The entire collection is pretty but I really wanted For the Twill of it. This is an almost purple green blue duo chrome. In person, this is a duo chrome beauty!! You can see the shifts of color with no problem. And the formula is pretty awesome! Two coats and this baby is opaque!! It was difficult to capture the duo chrome on camera but this is two coats of Essie For the Twill of it:

I love this!! I hate getting a duo chrome and the formula is streaky, thin, and sheer but this one is opposite! I believe this is a dupe for Julep Blakely too. I don't own Blakely but I have seen it and it looks very similar to this Essie version. Anyway, I will continue to try and catch up with my NOTD's, thanks for reading and if you're interested in my life as well as my nails, feel free to follow me on instagram @Nailsneverfails Thank you all!!

NOTD Marc Jacobs edition!! OPI Onyx with China Glaze Nova

Hey everyone! So some of you already know that I work for Sephora and a couple of weeks ago, the Marc Jacobs beauty collection was released and it's been a huge success! So to celebrate the launch of his collection at my job, we had to wear black and shiny nails along with wearing the makeup to match the packaging of his makeup line. I searched through my stash and wanted to do something simple yet different. I chose OPI Black Onyx as a base and chose China Glaze Nova on top. I just did a reverse gradient and an accent nail using Nova. I was very happy how it came out!

Oh just in case you don't know, Marc Jacobs also has a new line of nail polishes!! I can't wait to try those out!! Stay tuned!! Thanks for reading!!

NOTD Orly Mayhem Mentality topped with China Glaze Scattered and Tattered

So I'm trying to catch up with my NOTD's from August, so here is an awesome combo I recently wore. I was in the mood for a neon polish so I put on three coats of Orly Mayhem Mentality from their summer 2013 Mash Up collection. This is an awesome neon orange polish that dries to a semi matte finish. I needed three coats on it's own but if you use a white polish underneath then two coats should be fine.

Orly Mayhem Mentality, this is way more neon in person. This was the best my camera can get but this is much brighter. This is three coats without topcoat.

Then I decided to add one coat of China Glaze Scattered and Tattered from the Glitz n pieces collection on top. Such an awesome combo! I've previously reviewed this collection. Scattered and Tattered is a clear base with different size black glitter and orange glitter.

I love the glitters from this collection! Thanks for reading! And if you're interested in my nails as well as my everyday life, feel free to follow my Instagram @Nailsneverfails

September is here already?!! NOTD OPI A Woman's Prague-ative review

Hey everyone!! I can't believe we're in September already!! I'm going to be catching up a lot with reviews and NOTD's in the next few days. So to bring in September, I decided to put on OPI A Woman's Prague-ative from the Euro central 2013 collection. Even though this color was from the Spring collection, I thought it was a perfect color to bring in September. A Woman's Prague-ative is a gorgeous coppery orange shimmer.  It almost looks like there are gold flakes floating in an orange sea! The formula is flawless as well! Two medium coats and it's opaque! I love it!

I'm definitely looking forward to all the gorgeous fall collections this year! I'm in need for a nice nail polish haul! So stay tuned and have a happy Labor Day!
