OPI A Great Opera-tunity & MoYou London Fashionista 04

Hi friends. I'm bummed that there are only a couple days left of my Thanksgiving break. I didn't get to do my nails nearly as much as I wanted to. I wore regular nail polish this week thinking I would be changing them up pretty often--nope! I snapped 4 corners on my nails this week since they didn't have gel polish armor on. I completely regret it.

On a more positive note, here's a mani I wore last month that I loved. As soon as I saw swatches of the OPI Venice collection, I knew I wanted to pair these two together. Here's OPI GelColor A Great Opera-tunity stamped using MoYou London Fashionista 04 in OPI Worth A Pretty Penne. Aren't they gorgeous together? For anyone wondering, I stamped with the regular polish and the GelColor is on my ring finger. I bought the entire collection of both regular and gel because I have no chill lol.

Madam Glam Mama Mia Chamelon Gel--Swatch & Review

Who else totally splurged and shopped all the Black Friday deals today? I did some serious shopping today, online luckily, but OMG so many deals! Today I have another chameleon gel from Madam Glam to share with you. This one is called Mama Mia. It's a pink when warm and plum when cold and there's silver glitter throughout. This was so hard to photograph because the house and my fingers were so cold that I had to have a cup of microwaved water and a cup of ice water to keep dunking them in and even with that they kept turning the cold color. Poopy cold weather!

I stamped over it using MoYou London Pro 11 in Mundo de Unas White. This was my 2nd time using one of Madam Glam's Chameleon Gels and I was just as impressed this time as I was the first time. It wore well, transitioned easily, and impressed tons of people. You can purchase this here for $19.95.

OPI Venice Fall Watermarble

Happy Thanksgiving turkeys! Quick post today. Here's a watermarble I did using 3 polishes from the OPI Venice Collection. I used A Great Opera-tunity, Tiramisu for Two, and It's a Piazza Cake. I haven't water marbled in a year, so I only did an accent to play it safe.

Birthday Nails!

Hi loves! Yesterday I celebrated my 27th birthday. I meant to post this mani yesterday, but didn't get around to it as I was too busy stuffing my face with pizza and enjoying the day. I used OPI Purple Palazzo Pants and stamped using MoYou London Happy Birthday 02 in China Glaze Harmony. Harmony is also on my index and my pinky has OPI Liquid Sand Baby Please Come Home.

Bundle Monster Gel Polish--Swatches & Review

Today I have Bundle Monster gel polishes to share with you all. Bundle Monster has 2 types of gel polish available: speed gel polish and regular gel polish. Their speed gels are a 1 step gel polish that don't require any base or top gel. Their regular gel polish does. The ones I received are speed gels. Let's take a look at the swatches!

Rouge Lipstick

Button Down

Cocktail Dress

The polishes I used are speed gels, but I didn't realize that until now so swatches are shown with base/top gel. A lot of the gels sold on the BM website have the bottles labeled "speed gels" for the speed gels and "gel polish" for the regular gels like the bottles you see in my photos so you can see why I thought these required base/top. I realized these were speed gels after finding the link just now and reading the description of the item. There are no instructions on the bottle or packaged with the item so it would be great to have the bottles labeled "speed gels" to distinguish that. Aside from that, application was a little difficult. The consistency of the polish was thick and glue-like. I would have to say the best thing about these gels is that they are super opaque--almost 1 coaters, but I applied 2 for an even application. You can purchase these gel polishes here for $5.50 each.

Pink & Nude with Gold Stamped Studs

Happy Sundaaay! Quick post today. Here's a mani I wore last month to match a dress I wore to a friend's wedding. I wore a pink dress and nude heels with gold studs on them. I used OPI GelColor Do You Take Lei Away and stamped using MoYou London Biker 02 in Mundo de Unas Bronze. The pink is OPI GelColor Suzi Shops & Island Hops. I loved that I "had studs on my nails" without really having studs on my nails.

Madam Glam It's A Funny World Chamelon Gel--Swatch & Review

Happy November! October felt like it flew by. For Halloween yesterday I stayed in, made delicious "graveyard pudding," and my family watched Insidious 3 which was actually pretty creepy! Oh, and I had pizza yesterday which means it was perfect! Today I have a chamelon gel from Madam Glam to share with you called It's A Funny World. It's lilac when warm and purple when cold. There's also different sized silver glitter throughout. 

I stamped over it using MoYou London Kaleidoscope 10 in Mundo de Unas Silver. I showed a bunch of people the transition and everyone was impressed when they saw it. I wore this for 2 weeks and didn't get tired of it at all. It would've easily lasted another week. I applied it just like any other Madam Glam gel polish (over MG base gel and topped with MG top gel). I have another one of their chameleon gels to try out and I can't wait! You can purchase this gel here for $19.95.
