Tread Lightly...

Quick additional post with another of Ruby White Tips Breaking Bad Collection.
This fabulous grape jelly holo is Tread Lightly.

 The formula for this bad boy is what you'd expect from Ruby White Tips, FABULOUS!! These pictures feature three regular coats with HK Girl from Glisten & Glow. Check out those holos!?!?
I did notice when I removed it that it left a slight pinky tint to my nail beds and cuticles, more towards the cuticle area. I didn't notice any on the free edge of my nail and it seemed to lighten with a little Dawn dish detergent and baking soda, then I didn't notice it at all a few hours later. To me, this is in no way a deal breaker. I mean I own Zoya Liberty and Zuzu - 'nuf said, right? Yeah, a little pink ain't stopping me from using this beauty!!

Don't forget that Ruby White Tips is having their pre-sale of this polish and 3 others from the Breaking Bad Collection. The rest will be released on September 13th! Go get 'em! Hurry!!!!

Breaking Bad....'I AM the Danger'

So I'm not gonna lie, I just didn't get into Breaking Bad. I know, I'm a lame-o, I can't help it.
But I do love polishes (DUH) and the great and powerful Laura at Ruby White Tips (whose polishes I am particularly fond of) is about to release her new Breaking Bad Collection containing 10 polishes, and let me tell you my polish loving friend - it is and EPIC collection!!! Pre-Sale begins September 6th and the collections release date is September 13th on her Etsy Store. You won't want to miss it, there's polishes in there for everyone. And you might want to grab a cup of coffee, tea or soda cause this is going to be a looonnngggg post and get ready, cause there's loads of nail porn. 
Honestly, I had the hardest time trying to decide which photo to put up first, cause frankly I love them all, and these are just a few out of the collection. But, as I will probably always revert to my love of blue polish, so the blueys are up first. 
First up is That Blue Stuff, a lively blue jelly with holographic glitters that make it pop. While it is a shade or two darker than it's namesake, it is no less addictive and desirable. 
 Here I have three regular coats with a top coat of Star Crushed Lacquer's High Shine Top Coat. That Blue Stuff has a great formula, it's thick enough to hold plenty of glitter in each coat but applies evenly and smoothly; dry time is also quick, I waited about 2-3 minutes in between each coat and had no troubles with it. 
While That Blue Stuff is a shade or two darker than it's namesake, it is no less addictive and desirable.

 This is in sunlight outside. You can see how the color becomes that much more vibrant.
Yeah, these photos don't do it justice. 
And by the way, I just want you to know that there was no staining from this blue. Just thought I'd throw that in there. ;-)

Next up is Say My Name - an uplifting color, for a rather heavy episode in the Breaking Bad series.
Say My Name is a brilliant, light robin's egg blue with micro holo glitter to just take your breath away. This is two regular coats with a top coat of HK Girl from Glisten & Glow. Again the formula was fabulous and dry time was great!

It's The Bomb, Yo is a crazy cool glitter topper starting with a clear suspension base, with holo glitter, small and medium round, square and hex teal glitters with a few large round glitters and shards floating through there to make the ultimate glitter bomb topper. In this photo, I've used it over Ulta's Little Black Dress on my pointer finger, two coats with no undies on my middle finger, one coat over Say My Name on my ring, and one coat with no undies on my pinky all topped off with one coat of HK Girl from Glisten & Glow. 

And this little beauty is Hell Yeah Science! Cause we all know science rocks especially when it gives us such fabulous polishes!!
Hell Yeah Science! is a beautiful chocolate holo polish, with a slight pinky/purple shift to it. The formula is outstanding, this is two regular coats with no undies and HK Girl from Glisten & Glow to seal it all in one happy bundle. 

 This is Hell Yeah Science in sunlight. Pictures do not do it justice! 

Now, last but definitely not least of these polishes is Breakage; an amazing deep forest green that shifts to a purplish brown. As you see in these photos, it was originally called Solar System, but Laura has since changed this polish to Breakage, and it's sister polish, Cancer Within, a lighter version of Breakage. 

 Breakage in the sunlight
This is the pair, Breakage which you see above, and it's sister polish, Cancer Within, a lighter version. 

Well my lovies, these are just a few of the amazing polishes from Ruby White Tips new Breaking Bad Collection. Her Pre-Sale begins tomorrow, September 6th. You won't want to miss it! 
Ciao everyone! Happy almost end of the week!! :-)

Pomegranate Panic

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful, safe holiday weekend! I sure did, got to hang out with the hubby and kiddo, went for a scenic train ride and finally got to see Despicable Me 2. It's so fun to have a sequel that's almost as funny as the original one, I love the Minions!!!
Have you seen their Banana Song?!? Oh man, this song has the potential to be worse than the Hamster Dance! Don't watch it if you're not prepared to hum it for the rest of the day!!!

Ok, on to serious polish business now. Today I have yet another amazing polish from Star Crushed Lacquers.
This is Pomegranate. A beautiful, easy red, with a slight orange tint to it and lovely micro glitters that really set off this color. The formula applies easily, I didn't have to thin this one down.
One of the best parts is I was really pleased to see that it didn't stain my nails when I removed it.
I've been really happy with all the polishes from Star Crushed Lacquers, none have stained or been difficult to remove, yet they last really well under my wear and tear.
 This is two coats of Pomegranate and Star Crushed Lacquer's High Shine Top Coat.
Have I mentioned how much I love their top coat!?!?!

Star Crushed Lacquers can be found on Etsy, Facebook and Instagram @starcrushedminerals. Be sure to check them out, I think her Labor Day sale is still going on - but hurry, it will be over soon!!

Check out that sparkle?!?!?!
