Nails: Milani Rad Purple with Pure Ice Heartbreaker

Two drugstore polishes put together to make something truly amazing! This is Milani Rad Purple (3 coats) topped with Pure Ice Heartbreaker (2 coats). You can find Milani at CVS, and Rad Purple is always there when I go. It’s a jelly finish…squishy looking once you put a good topcoat on it. It’s part of the neon collection, so it dries a little matte before you top coat it. This is one of my favorite polishes, believe it or not. I <3 jelly polishes!!! Anyway, Pure Ice is a brand that is pretty much only found in Walmart. I come across it every so often depending on how run down the Walmart is.

I got this idea from a beautiful MUA NBer named audrealena who happens to be local! She and I ran into each other at a Sally’s one day, and she noticed my nails and complimented me. Then later in the day, she posted on the board about seeing me and wondering if I was a NBer too (we didn’t know each other at all). I saw her post and said “It was me!!!” Haha! Neat, huh? Well, this is her creation, and I am hopefully flattering her by recreating it myself.

Pictures don’t really do this one justice, but I sure did try…really hard. I took WAY too many pictures of this one, but I couldn’t help it :-) So pretty!!!!  Read the rest of this entry »


NOTD: RBL Teal w/ Pure Ice Heartbreaker

Rescue Beauty Lounge (RBL) is an amazing nail polish company. I bought all of the ones I have online, and most during a sale. They’re not cheap, but on first application, it’s easy to see why. They are of incredible quality, pigment, and I really love their bottles. Teal (yep, that’s the name) is a straight up creme, and it is an incredibly dark turquoise color. It’s a one-coater, but I did two for good measure. Before I could even take a picture, I slapped Pure Ice Heartbreaker (found at Wal-Mart) over it to see it shimmer away! As you can see, Heartbreaker added a lot of green to the mani, and of course lovely shimmer.

It sparkles and shimmers in the sun. So beautiful!!!  But without the direct light, you can see the deep blue of the RBL Teal showing through the shimmer.
