NOTD: China Glaze Octa Gone Wild

I think this is the 3rd mani I've done in as many weeks. I've been so busy and tired. I start school again on Monday so I probably won't be posting as much as I usually do. I'm going to try though.





Don't hurt yourself trying to get your hands on Octa, Milani's Hi-Res (on right) is a 98% dupe. Its just a touch warmer and has a bit less holo glitter, and I think it's a bit less sheer.

Franken: Boogie On, Leprechaun!

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of post. I was sick for a while and as soon as I got better work became hellish so I've been too tired to even do my nails for two weeks.

I've been looking forward to making this franken for a few weeks. The Joann holo glitter comes in a sample pack like this. I've heard some of these glitters bleed, so I will experiment with the other colors and report back. This green one was perfect though and I am very happy with this color. Its so summery and fun.

I used:
-wnw Kaleidoscope & Hallucinate as a glitter base
-Joann's green holo glitter
-CoastalScents.com Golden Fairy Dust
-tkbtrading.com Taurus Orion (just a little, I wanted a sheer tint of color)
-tkbtrading.com holographic glitter
