Gradient Stamping Design Using Big-Ass Stamper from Jolie Polish

I purchased the turbo stamper (or as I call it, the “Big-Ass Stamper” or #BAS) from Jolie Polish months & months ago, but I didn’t have a blog at the time so I couldn’t write a proper review. I did flap my gums a bit in an Instablog review for the Wizard of Oz mani that I did, which can be found here.

Size comparison of the turbo stamper (Big-Ass Stamper) from Jolie Polish vs XL stampers from Fab Ur Nails.

Lawd chyle, this thang is huge. As you can see, it’s about four times the size of an XL stamper from Fab Ur Nails, about which I wrote this blog review.

YouTube video & mani pics after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.

The BAS is 6cm x 4cm of soft & squishy silicone. I would say that it’s sticky, but not suuuuper sticky. My descriptive terms are very technical, I know. Continue reading “Gradient Stamping Design Using Big-Ass Stamper from Jolie Polish”


Glisten & Glow Birthday Mystery Polish Swatch & Cuticle Balm Review

Jill over at Glisten & Glow recently celebrated her company’s sixth birthday and, to thank her customers, offered up a $6 limited edition mystery holo polish, 66% off of her Nail & Cuticle Balms, and a great deal on 3-packs of HK Girl top coat.

I already have HKGs comin’ out my wazoo so I didn’t order the 3-pk, but I couldn’t pass up a $6 holo — mystery or no. And since I haven’t yet tried Jill’s cuticle products, I grabbed a Sangria White Peach balm as well.

Glisten & Glow mystery holo polish, “6 Years…A Dream.”

YouTube video, pic swatches & reviews after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.

The mystery polish is “6 Years…A Dream,” which is not only a great name, but an incredible blueberry shade. I snatched up two bottles, cuz HELLO, SIX BUCKS!

(Pshhht I tossed the second one into my giveaway pile, so don’t go thinkin’ I’m all stingy & shit.) Continue reading “Glisten & Glow Birthday Mystery Polish Swatch & Cuticle Balm Review”


Cupcake Polish Swatches & Reviews

After months of seein’ Cupcake Polish pics on the ol’ Instawebs, I finally decided to wipe the drool off’a my phone & place an order. The only thing I have to say is… what the hhhhhhhelllll took me so long to get on the damn bus?!

*glances over at her 27 Jolie Polish bottles*

Oh. Yeah. THAT’S where all of my monies have run off to lately.

Anyboobs…swatch pics, nail art & macros after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.

My three new babies are Berry Good Looking (BGL from here on out), Blood Hound (BH) & Bat-chelor Pad. BGL & BH were the two Cupcakes that literally made my eyeballs fly outta my head all cartoon-style every time I’d see em. So duh, I *had* to get those. And since I’m an absolute whore for blue & green polishes, Bat-chelor Pad was a no-brainer.

I dove right into BGL, as I typically swatch colors from lightest to darkest, but there’s really nothin’ “light” about BGL. ‘Cept for the light that coMES SHOOTIN’ OUTTA YER NAILS WHEN YER WEARIN’ IT CUZ HOLY SHIT LOOKIT THAT LIQUID HOLO SEX!

Seriously one’a the most gorgeous, sparkly polishes I’ve ever seen in my life. Ugh. It’s no wonder that BGL won Best Indie Brand Polish, Best Purple Polish *AND* Best Holographic Polish of 2015, as voted on by Peachy Polish readers. *hair flip*

Art Deco Reverse Stamp Design Using Bliss Kiss Simply Neat Miracle Mat

When I received Electric Spark from Fancy Gloss, I swatched it as soon as I could. How stunning is this?! I mean, LOOK AT IT! *swoon* This bright metallic blue is so buttery & smooth, it lays down just like one’a Jackie’s infamous creme formulas.

Fancy Gloss “Electric Spark” swatch.

Electric Spark is a hand-grabber all on its own, so wallflowers beware — this ain’t the polish for you.

I immediately knew that this blue would make the perfect base for a little white stamping action…and that’s where my art deco design was born.

Full mani & YouTube tutorial after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.

I was really excited to create these decals directly on my Bliss Kiss Simply Neat Miracle Mat for the first time. I’ve had my mat for a few months now, and I’ve used it every day for one thing or another, but hadn’t created reverse stamps on it til now.
