Anyone out there a huge Orange is the New Black fan? When Laura said she was putting together an OITNB collection, I squealed with delight! I love the show, and hadn't seen a collection inspired by it yet! This collection is based on the third season, which just recently became available on Netflix. This collection won't give away any spoilers, and I won't either! :) This five-piece collection is called Trust No Bitch! The entire collection is $45.90, and the polishes range from $10-$10.50 on their own. I do have to mention that it my excitement, I forgot to swatch one polish! Look for swatches of Trust No Bitch in a week or two! Enjoy! :)
Admiral Rodcocker is a clear base loaded with a mix of metallic and holo glitter in black and shades of blue with medium and deep blue holo microglitter. This megaglitter could be used as a topper, but I recommend going for the entire glitter look! I did three thin coats without any undies to achieve the opacity you see. Being packed with glitter does make it a little more challenging to work with. However, it isn't too challenging, and the results are totally worth it!
I Refuse to be Invisible is a white crelly base (you know how much I LOVE crelly bases!) with a rainbow of metallic and holo glitter hanging out in it! Not only do I love this polish, I love the meaning behind it too. Laura hit the nail on the head with this one. True perfection. I did two coats for the opacity you see.
Time for my favorite of the collection: Our Panties Will Travel the World! This bright magenta pink polish is swimming with itty bitty pink microglitter. This polish SCREAMS my name so loudly! I love it so very much! I did three thin coats, but you could easily get away with two.
Praise Norma is the final polish in this collection. She's a tan-yellow crelly with rose shimmer, and rose metallic glitter. This is a neutral polish lovers dream! Neutral base with just enough sparkle. I did two coats.

I recently attended a work event that require some school spirit, so I came up with these sparkly half moon nails! I began with two coats of an orange cream polish, then topped it with quick dry top coat. Then I used half moon nail vinyls and placed them vertically down the middle of my nails. I then polished ellagee's Ebony on the right side of each nail. I pulled the vinyls off immediately after polishing over them. Finally, I finished the look off by polishing a line of ellagee's BOOM! down the line between the orange and black polishes. One coat of top coat finished the look off! Enjoy! :)

Happy 4th to my American readers today! Unfortunately, I ran out of time for a patriotic mani, so you get a water marble instead! :)
For this marble, I began with two coats of ellagee's Platinum. Then I used Pipedream Light on Day marbled with one other color from the collection on each nail. My pinkie nail is High Roller, ring nail is On the List, middle nail is Happy Hour, index nail is VIP Pass, and 110 Degrees on my thumb. I finished it all up with one coat of Rainbow Syrup by ellagee. This gave my nails a nice, holographic sheen of awesomeness! Enjoy, and be safe around fireworks today! :)
