Hello lovelies!

Whose ready for the start of the week? I know I’m not….I took a three day weekend and it still felt so short ): Anywho! I’m back with some more Love, Angeline swatches so maybe that will help all of us get through the day (: Before we get to the photos, I’m just going to put a little disclaimer here that the lighting in these photos is pretty whack (yeah, I just said that) because I was still experimenting with my setup. So, bear with me guys and onto the nails!

Name: Hammer Time

Description: Glitter topper with white and silver hex glitters as well as black diamonds.

Number of Coats: One coat over Zoya’s Cecilia.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Very glitter heavy and requires a little manipulating for even placement.

Dry Time: Still dent-able at ten minutes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: n/a (only worn long enough to swatch.)

Both of these polishes were actually part of my very first Love, Angeline purchase back when I first started getting into blogging in 2013. This particular polish was part of her I Love The 80s collection that was released that same year. As neat as I think this glitter is, I don’t ever find myself reaching for this /: I love the black, white, and silver color mix, but I wish there was a little more size variation with the hex glitters. I’ll have to make an effort to use this more often!

Name: She Loves Me

Description: Glitter topper with gold hex glitters and smaller aqua glitters.

Number of Coats: One coat over Zoya’s Nyssa

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: More of a runny, base heavy glitter that requires some fishing to get decent glitter payoff.

Dry Time: Slightly dent-able at ten minutes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: n/a (only worn long enough to swatch.)

These photos are sooooo glare-y, blah…anywho! She Loves Me was part of another 2013 collection called the Love Always Collection. Now, this polish I actually really like (minus the whole having to fish for glitter part but I can over look it) and I’m really not sure why I don’t reach for this more often. The gold and light aqua glitters work so well together and this would look great over a variety of different of base colors.

Now onto the nail art!

I recently bought myself an UberChic Beauty mat and was super excited about making decals (which I quickly learned that I’m not very good at it…) But for this look, I was hoping to create a wash of different colors that would lightly color the glitters underneath but instead they were almost completely masked under the decal. The bow was just added to try and make up for the rest of the disaster haha.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Zoya’s Cecilia.
  2. Then add a layer of Hammer Time.
  3. While that’s drying, make some watercolor decals on an UberChic Beauty mat using a pink, orange, and yellow polish (I forgot to write down the names…oops!)
  4. Once the decals are dry, add a thin layer of topcoat to your nail and place the decal onto it.
  5. Clean up the edges.
  6. Repeat steps four and five until all of your nails are done.
  7. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.
  8. Dab a little wet topcoat where you want the bow and stick it on (this one is a Daily Charme bow that I bought from Whats Up Nails.)

This nail art turned out a little bit better, but it’s still just a mishmash of randomness haha. I love pairing blue and brown together, so that’s what I did here!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Zoya’s Nyssa.
  2. Then add a layer of She Loves Me.
  3. While that’s drying, make some decals on a UberChic Beauty mat using Zoya’s Sia. For my decals, I did the “robins nest” technique and some heart vinyls from Whats Up Nails.
  4. Once the decals are dry, add a thin layer of topcoat to your nail and place the decal onto it.
  5. Clean up the edges.
  6. Repeat steps four and five until all of your nails are done.
  7. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.
