Pretty and Polished "Phoenix" over Essie "Action"

Hello all,
Well today is a mail day I wish would happen everyday. After getting my first Lush Lacquer polishes and loving them, decided to try out some more indies and went with Pretty and polished this time:)  I got "Phoenix" and "Punked up Betty"
Dont they just look so pretty!!!! Well, today I tried on Phoenix. Its the one I was most looking forward to getting so I took off what I had on right away and went for it. I did try it alone at first but thought that adding an orange base would make it POP more and I was right. I added Essie "Action" as the base.
 Here I am holding my pretty bottle with the polish on:)

I DEFINITELY LOVE this, if you didn't pick up on that yet. I know my lighting is not the best and some are blurry but this polish is just stunning. Since I added an orange base you cant really see the yellow sparkles all that much but they are in there. It is kind of the same formula as floam is, in the sense that I find the sparkles the same, but unlike floam, it leaves VNL even after 4 coats, but goes great over a color. May try yellow next or maybe even black.

 As you can see on a few nails, their are some red sparkles as well in the polish. Some tiny ones and some big ones. The big ones don't come out in every stroke though.

 This is my thumb and it does not have the yellow base. BEst pic I got of it but you can see that some nail is still visible.

 This nail lucked out and got 2 of the red circles:)

 So there you have it. I am happy I went with Phoenix and cant wait to try out Punked up Betty. I was really trying to decide about getting Tart and will be getting it soon. I am overall happy with their polishes. They are  8.50 USd each on their Etsy shop. You can purchase them here. I know a lot of people find the prices of indies to be high but if you get a few extra dollars some are really worth it. I love how unique Phoenix is. I don't own anything like it. Thats what I like about indies. I am in Canada so I get the whole cost being high, especially after the shipping so I treat myself to a few here and there. I certainly cant keep up like a lot of other bloggers do, but sure would if I could!:):)
etsy shop <where to purchase, however I just went to get the link and says she is on holiday at the moment........
So, do you guys own any Pretty and Polished polishes?? Which ones? What do you think of them? IS Phoenix the sort of color you would wear? I know a few people that saw it said they liked it but wouldn't wear it........

Liebster Nomination:)

WOW!! well, I am happy to say that I have just been nominated for a Liebster Award!
Now, I have never heard of it. I was nominated by my fellow blogger over at Painted Nubbs So, from what I understand, it is for bloggers with less then 200 followers, which fits me perfectly:) The rules are simple and as follows...

  • 1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  • 2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
  • 3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  • 4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
  • 5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
  • 6. There are no tag backs.       

So, I am up for this and also seems fun so here I go:)

                                       11 things about me

  1. I LOVE animals. If I could I would have a farm full of rescue cats, dogs, and any animal I could help out with a home.
  2. I have a black cat by the name of Karma. She is 2 years old and is quite a unique cat.
  3. I speak english and french, which is typical of someone born in Montreal,Quebec.
  4. I play the guitar and piano and played the clarinet and trombone when I was in high school.
  5. I suck at math and drawing. Cant do either even if my life depended on it

  7. My favourite color is blue.
  8. I LOVE hello kitty.
  9. I look incredibly young for my age and get asked for ID all the time. Its a bit annoying but hoping it will last into my old age.
  10. My fav band is The Red Hot Chili Peppers. I am going to see them in November. CAnt wait!
I am DEATHLY afraid of mice and especially rats. Which, I know, is ironic since I am such an animal lover but we cant help what it is we fear.

6. If you had to wear one polish for the rest of life, what would it be?
     OMG!! I HATE this question. Not sure if you mean brand of a particular polish so if it was brand I would go with Essie and a polish, I would say Floam. It was a lemming for SO LONG, I am so happy and proud to own it!

Essie "Mirror Metallics" in Good as gold and Blue rhapsody

Hello my lovelies:) I have some pretties for you today:) I have been wanting to try these out since I saw some swatches a few weeks ago! I only got 2 from the collection. and I am happy with my choices. I got "Good as Gold" which is a beautiful Gold metallic. 

The other one "Blue rhapsody" is a gorgeous light blue metallic. I love it! It shines in the sun and almost looks like aluminium paper on your nails...

I did my mani using the Blue rhapsody and added the gold to the tips of 2 fingers for a bit of bold touch to it. I will be using the gold ASAP so I will be posting it soon. But for now, heres what the blue looks like

Here it is with some light on it. You can see how the light just bounces off it. its beautiful. Wish I could capture it better....

Here is my pinky with the Gold on the tip

and on the thumb:)

 I wanted to incorporate some sparkles so on both ring fingers I added Hits Phenomena "Borealis" and "Air glow"  These are GORGEOUS glitter polishes and I have been wanting to try them out for awhile. They have been in my unused section forever, just never had the right mani to add it to. I will now be making a mani around it since I want to use it again. As the bottle says , they are "Glitter forte".

This one is "Air Glow" its gold and dark red , small sparkles. 

This here is "Borealis" it is jam packed with gold glitter goodness!

It did look good on top of the blue:) 

I put a coat of both on each ring finger:) 

So, overall, I am really happy with the way this turned out! I think it looked great. Cant wait to try out the GOld alone and show that to you guys. What do you guys think of this Metallic line from Essie. They have been hard to keep up with lately. Seems like they have a new collection every 2 weeks l; lately! and I LOVE ME SOME ESSIE!! Which ones do you guys have?
I am also glad I finally tried out my Hits polishes and want more of those as well....
