Twinkled T Glitter in "Coraline"

Hi dolls! New look for you today! I'm loving this color combination! My execution of this was completely wrong so it ended up being a little more complicated than I anticipated but I'm still happy with the results.

My base is "Breakfast On Fifth" by Polish My Life, the coral polish is "Diamond Head Breeze" by Island Girl and the glitter is .032" "Coraline" from Twinkled T Glitter.

Daily Charme floral decals & crystals

Happy Friday everyone! Too bad today is my Monday **womp womp**. But I have some cute nails to share with you!





Isn't this just the cutest spring time mani! My base color is "Gray-t Escape" by Sally Hansen. Then I used the "Spring Blossom" water decals from Daily Charme.

If you follow closely on Instagram, you know I still have silk wraps on my index and middle for the breaks. Hopefully they'll be grown out soon!

Anyways, moving on to why you're here! Today I have the newest collection from Polish My Life called the "A Time To Chill" Collection, made up of gorgeous pastel cremes with neon undertones.

Doctor Lacquer - Coholorful Traits Collection

Um, what? It's already April? Today I have the CoHOLOrful Traits Collection from Doctor Lacquer to show you. It consist of six holographic thermal polishes that are absolutely gorgeous! This collection will be restocked today April 1st at 9pm EST at http://doctorlacquer.storenvy.com/.



MALICIOUS PLEASURE
This holographic thermal is cotton candy pink when warm and salmon pink when cold. It's more of a subtle ombre transition then a drastic change. This is three coats no topcoat.



OPTIMISTIC YOUTH
This holographic thermal is burnt orange when cold and a pale chartreuse when warm. This is three coats no topcoat.



NATURAL FLIRT
This holographic thermal is mauve when warm and taupe when cold. This has the most subtle change but the most holo, although I really failed to capture it. Again three coats no topcoat.



ROYAL LUXURY
This holographic thermal is a light blue when warm and purple when cold. Three coats  no topcoat.



TRUE COMPASSION
This holographic thermal is a cornflower blue when warm and a cobalt blue when cold. Also three coats no topcoat.



MYSTERIOUS LOVE
This holographic thermal is pink when warm and turns purple when cold. This is three coats no topcoat.



These all apply amazingly! Really smooth creamy application. For most people they will only require two coats but because at this time my nails were so long, most polishes I always have to do three lol. Don't pass these up! They sold out last time. Hop over to http://doctorlacquer.storenvy.com/ and pick them up! Available today 4/1 at 9pm EST!



And once again I apologize. I've really been slacking on the blog. I don't know what it is but I just get lazy lol. But you can always always find my work on my Instagram page @lusterlacquer :)
