I wanted to do something colorful as the days get cooler and the opportunities to show off any polish on your toes are becoming fewer and fewer.
For the base of all of the nails I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep. I really like this silver because it goes on smoothly and is opaque in one coat. After that, I topped off each nail with one of the OPI Sheer Tints. Starting with the pink they are, Be Magentale With Me, I Can Teal You Like Me, Don’t Violet Me Down, and I’m Never Amberrassed. And in case that wasn’t enough, I topped every toe off with Funky Fingers So Fetch!. The Funky Fingers has pink, yellow, green, white, and black hex glitters, along with blue stars. When I found this polish, it was hard not to grab the others because I really do like the movie Mean Girls.
The finished product was colorful, but nothing over the top. I actually thought it was a nice way to get color for the fall without being full on neon.
Do you like the sheer tints? Or have the color paints taken over?

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I know more people than I would like to admit that have been touched by this disease. While I know that pink ribbons on my nails will not bring a cure, awareness brings money, money brings research, and research should bring a cure.
For this mani, I used OPI Mod About You, which is from the 2014 Pink of Hearts set. (Side note: Has anyone found these for 2015? I can’t, even online. Is OPI not doing this anymore?) After painting on the OPI, which dried in a flash, I placed the water slide ribbons on my ring fingers. I topped all of that off with two coats of Funky Fingers Ghouls Night Out, which darkened the OPI to a nice shade of Pepto Pink. It also added the glittery shine.
BUT WAIT! That’s not all! This mani is not only fabulous for the day, but rocks at night because it is…
That’s right! This sparkly pink is also a glow polish. I am going to put a few pics below, which don’t really capture the brightness, but trust me when I say it shines brightly!
I absolutely love glow polish, and the way this look worked both day and night made it a lot of fun. Then, to top it off, it got people’s attention for a cause. I call that a win, win, win!
Thanks for reading! And let me know if you find Pink of Hearts for 2015!
This week I sported Funky Fingers on my fingers and toes. I wore Jawbreaker on my fingers and Partly Cloudy on my toes.
I liked the Jawbreaker a lot. The white polish with the colorful flakes seemed to give it layers and make it more interesting than just a coat of glitter.
These pictures are after wearing it for a week, so I would say it holds up pretty well.
Partly Cloudy is a color changing polish when you get in the sun. Indoors, it is a very pretty teal color. I like it quite a bit.
Outdoors, it turns gray, and I actually liked that too. It turns very easily, but if any shadow is cast at all, it begins to fade to green.
I would recommend this color changing polish to anyone that is curious about them. It works, and you can’t beat the price. (Funky Fingers is available through Five Below and you get 2 for $5 of the color changing, 3 for $5 in shades like Jawbreaker.)
Have you used any color changing or glitter mixed into polish types of polishes? (WHOA awkward sentence.) Let me know what you have tried.
Talk with you later!
