Kimber’s Mish Mash Challenge: Metallic


Tomorrow is the very last day to enter my giveaway!


Hey guys! It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another Mish Mash Challenge post. This week’s theme is metallic (not “a technique you’ve never tried before,” like I thought it was this whole time).

Welcome Post! Hauls and Recent Manicures


Hello! Welcome to The Polished Fangirl. Hauls, manis, and various fun with nails.

I’ll start off with my three most recent manicures, as well as a haul from yesterday.


This was my manicure from earlier this week (Monday, I believe). Essie’s Cocktail Bling (a beautiful grey with strong purple undertones) with NYC’s Matte Me Crazy as a top coat. (I HIGHLY recommend the Matte Me Crazy if you’re looking for a matte top coat. It does a wonderful job of mattifying without being as expensive as Matte Magic or Matte About You. It’ll run you about $2 after taxes. I got mine at Target.)


Next, I had a slight haul yesterday, and I apologize for not having individual pictures of the bottles. In the back row we have Kleancolor Red Crackle, Kleancolor Black, Kleancolor Silver Glitter, Kleancolor Ocean Waves, and Kleancolor Espresso. In the front row we have Color Club Top Coat, Color Club Magnetic Force, Color Club French Tip, and Color Club Shock Rock.


Since I’ve used crackle/shatter polishes in the past, my manicure of choice was the magnetic. Seen here with the Color Club Top Coat.


And then my most recent mani (for the time being). Newspaper nails with 10 Lacquer in Moonlight as the base color, and Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Fast Dry as the Top Coat.
