Morbid Lime

From Hot Topic's French Manicure set (which I got on clearance)


The Set: (pic from HotTopic's website)


The Mani:


 

Honestly not a huge fan of the formula, but the color was very interesting and different.


Thanks for looking!

Enchanted Sparkle

So on my last trip to Sally's Beauty Supply I saw that they were selling these cute holiday sets of Orly's "Enchanted Forest" with Orly "Prisma Gold", but since I already own both there was no need to buy them (should've taken a pic though). Still I loved the idea of that combo, check it out below.

The Materials:


(added the "Prisma Gloss Silver" for extra glitterness!!)
 
(Orly "Bonder", Orly "Enchanted Forest", Orly "Prisma Gloss Silver", Orly "Prisma Gold", Poshe "Super Fast-Drying Top Coat")

The Mani :)
