More Summery My Kinda Color swatches!

As promised, here are some more beautiful polishes by My Kinda Color. All of these are perfect for your summer nail, from fingers to toes! Let’s check them out.

Loving this warm Coral by My Kinda Color called “I Wanna Be Coral”! It almost has a deeper coral shift, and of the 1,000s (yeah, you read that right) of polishes in my collection, I have nothing like it!
My Kinda Color in “Emily Loves Blue” is a pearly baby blue and would be a perfect bridesmaid blue!
Hard to pick a favorite in this My Kinda Color lineup, but this duo color shifting polish called “Bella” has my heart! It is a gorgeous fuchsia with a nice blue shift. Glossy as heck and the formula is to die for.
“Reddy or Not” by My Kinda color. A beautiful slightly shimmery cool red in a perfect formula.
Ahh, love “Beach Day” by My Kinda Color. Because you know, I love beach days! 2 smooth metallic coats.
Love this My Kinda Color called Radio Active 2 coats here. A slightly rubbery jelly finish, but more opaque than most jellies, applies like a dream.
My Kinda Color in “I Love Me Some Gold” is a 2-coat true gold with micro glitter within, very slight texture. One coat of clear topcoat smooths it perfectly.

Owner Patty notes: Most nail polish colors have matching pressed power eyeshadow and smudge proof Gel eyeliner/shadow. Vegan 5-free Cruelty free Made in USA-Florida. Prices are super reasonable!

Five new Born Pretty “pretties” to share!

Born Pretty StoreThe other day I received some more pretties from Born Pretty Store. They always have such cool stuff and always something new. If you’re willing to wait a few weeks for your order, it’s always worth it. Let’s see what they sent!

What a fun batch of goodies sent to me by the folks at Born Pretty! Link is body of post…Center then clockwise from top left: Black Chrome, BP stamping plate BP-X51, BP Cat Eye gel polish #02, BP stamping polish in gold, and BP double-sided jelly stamper with swipe card.

Remember, listed below after the images are links to each item. Let’s start with the gorgeous gold stamping polish by Born Pretty and sidenote: I wish I had a bigger bottle of this because it’s that good!

BP gold stamping polish is aaammmaaazzzing! Super easy to stamp and here it is stamped over black.

This cool new double-sided jelly stamper is perfect having a small end 2.3 cm, for small or pinky nails and the other end is medium 2.8 cm

A great little double-sided jelly stamper, easy to see through to place your stamp exactly where you need it, small side is great for small nails and especially your pinky! Other side is medium.

I love this little Kitty stamping plate, because you know, I’m all about cats!

BP-X51 square stamping plate is chock full of kitty cats. I stamped BP black and white stamping polish over pink.

An all new type of chrome pigment powder in black! Now I think mine didn’t quite come out as I expected. The powder is super fine, and I think it may have been that I overcured my no wipe top coat, because I tested it on a plastic swatch nail and it was like a blacked mirror. So my fault, but it’s still pretty here, I will try again!

Born Pretty Black Chrome is a black pigment with a slight metallic look in the jar. Buffed on black polish gives a shiny gunmetal appearance. Very trendy right now!

And finally, a cat eye gel polish in #02 used with a magnet is one of my top fave gel looks. This one when magnetized shifts purple to teal with a duochrome effect. Not as strong as the #01 I tried last time, but still gorgeous. Again, I think next time I will paint it exclusively without black underneath.

Born Pretty Magnetic Cat Eye gel in #02, pretty but not as effective over black as the first one I tried. Next time I will paint on, cure then paint on again, apply magnet and cure. I think the effect will be stronger with the shift from purple to teal.

Here are the items’ links in the Born Pretty Store!

3 Beauties from the Indigo Bananas – A Delos Holiday collection

Recently I got to try three of the Winter 2016 A Delos Holiday collection by Indigo Bananas. I want to jump right in here and say the formulas are perfect! So easy to apply, base coat recommended and top coat optional, they are shiny!

NOTE: I was going to get this posed over the weekend, but Saturday morning my son and I hit by a hit and run driver, we were coming out of a stop sign intersection in a residential area, and the cross traffic was empty, except…a guy came barreling down and I didn’t see him, and he hit me at a full 30 mph! We are ok, I’m still a bit sore but nothing broken, but my car 😥 The guy that ran into me took off, so there’s that. Anyway, thank God for insurance as he is nowhere to be found, yet. So I am back on my feet, onward and forward!

Here are these gorgeous polishes! ~Winter 2016 Collection~ A Delos Holiday…A tribute to Westworld, one of many worlds for your many holidays. Open the door and see what’s behind – a million little perfect pieces. A collection of novel multichromes, holographic and with holographic flakies~Oh, and they come in two sizes, 8 and 15 ml.

Finish: strong multichrome, linear holographic, holographic flakies

# coats: two” She’s hot and she’s gorgeous! Two thin coats here with topcoat. Note: she will stain over acrylic or soak off gel base, so I recommend a base coat protector for that, is not supposed to stain natural nail.

Some new Born Pretty nail pretties you’ll love

It’s been awhile since I posted for Born Pretty store so today I have three pretty items to share with you. Next week I’ll be sharing a gorgeous stamping plate that also arrived with these.

• Today I have a super cute Flower Fairy gel in color #6

Born Pretty Flower Fairy gel in color #6, looks like miniature lavender petals on my nail tips. Can be used over a base color, but I love the look of negative space and nude with this! Cure as you would all gel polishes.

Born Pretty Flower Fairy gel in color #6, a pretty lavender flower within a clear gel base. Cure as you would under lamp, then top with gel top coat and cure. I found it easiest to smooth over nail tip, then dab extra flowers with a tiny nail dotting tool. Or you could use a toothpick.

• A mermaidy glitter/pigment Starry Sky in color #2345.

Born Pretty Starry Sky glitter #2345 rubbed over black gel polish that has been cured. Very easy to rub in but unlike some of the finer pigments, also leaves a few chunkier flakes but remain smooth. The duochrome chameleon effect is stunning. Here I added a gel matted topcoat over the accent nail, cured, then drops of clear gloss gel topcoat and cured for a water droplet effect.

Born Pretty Starry Sky glitters come in 12 shades, this one is very mermaidy, #2345. This glitter is not the super fine powder as often found in powder pigments but can be used the same way. Can also be used to mix into a color or clear polish.
