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.
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.

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.

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!
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!

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.
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.
