RBL Skittles

I collect Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes and, truth be told, as beautiful as they are, they just sit in my closet.  :(  It's almost like I don't want to use them because they are so pretty.  I want them to last.  Isn't that crazy?  I suppose I'm not the only polishholic who does this, though!
I decided on Smile, Poppy and Coral, perfectly bright colours for the summer.  My favourite of the three is Smile with its subtle shimmer, but they were all gorgeous two coaters.  I don't remember what polish I used on my index and thumb, but the glitter topper is Sephora by OPI Come to Papa-razzi.  The copper micro glitter and gold and black hexes are so cute and work well on the grey.

What do you think about RBL polishes?  Worth the money or overrated?

Ozotic 532

I love Ozotic 532 and its holographic multichrome goodness so much that I bought a backup, as well as backups for 533 and 534!    This polish shifts from blue to pinky peach to purple.  It is a bit sheer so did three coats, but that's nothing a little layering won't fix.  I decided to jazz up 532 with one of my favourite Konad stamps.  Obviously, I couldn't stop staring at my nails!  :)

What are your favourite holo polishes?

Essie Full Steam Ahead/Cult Walk of Shame

Here is another one of Essie's Summer 2013 shimmers that I loved wearing ~ Full Steam Ahead.  The lilac shade is nothing new, but the addition of fine silver shimmer that dances in the sunlight certainly is.  I thought the holo sparkle of Cult Nails Walk of Shame would bring out the shimmer in FSA as well as provide some contrast.  Usually gold is not my thing, but I love it in this polish!  I don't remember how many coats I used, but I believe it to be 2.  I do remember I had no complaints with this mani, though! :)

Essie and Hare accent mani

This is one of the manis I wore to kick off the start of the summer.  It's bright and cheery and I loved wearing it!  Surprisingly, I found out that Bisbee was opaque in two coats, as opposed to three or four, like I imagined.  The Essies also applied nicely in two coats and gave off a lovely, subtle shimmer in the sun.

I'll definitely be wearing these Essie shimmers more!
