I love this combination!
This is Sally Hansen Barracuda (from the complete salon manicure line) topped with L’Oreal Spot Me, from their new Les Blancs collection. 
I love Barracuda, it’s a beautiful light blue and can be opaque in two coats but there was a little streaking and things so I used three. I topped it with one coat of Spot Me, which is very very sheer. I thought it would be like similar polishes that are far more opaque. You might be able to get Spot Me opaque in three or four coats as it’s kind of a sheer jelly with a blue hint. Very sheer. So sheer that it didn’t change the colour of Barracuda from what I could tell.I love this combination!

A picture of China Glaze Pool Party on an overcast day. This is a neon Barbie pink. It dries matte as all true neons do. I decided to use my Wax Top Coat from Nail Pattern Boldness for something different. It’s not matte and not glossy, it’s a nice satin or, waxy, finish.
This polish makes me looked tan which is awesome and it was fun to wear on it’s own with no glitter. View Larger

Hello there lovely readers!
Today I have for you polish number two of my twenty-one untried for spring. 
The polish we are talking about is in the middle of the first picture and it is Space Princess from Candy Lacquer. Oh my glob! As you can guess, this polish is made with Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time as an inspiration. 
To get this look I used two coats of Lav-Endure from CoverGirl followed by one coat/dabble of Space Princess followed by three coats in varying positions of OPI’s Don’t Violet Me Down from the Sheer Tints collection to get that gradient on top for a jelly sandwich look. 
I know this isn’t a “true” jelly sandwich, but I like to think that it’s a variation on one. Hello there lovely readers!

Today I have for you my first in my 21 untried polishes for spring. I have a video queued up for it so be sure to check that out. Bright nails tend to cheer me up and add a bit of colour against all that white.
This is Grass is Lime Greener from China Glaze’s City Flourish collection. It’s a neon lime green that is also oddly pastel at the same time. I love this kind of thing. 
The formula was a liiiiittle…. different. I did get some patchy issues and streaking. I found that doing two coats on the thicker side helped keep things smooth and opaque. The second coat was added once the first one was almost dry. This polish, like any true neon, dries matte so a top coat will be needed for that gloss. Or use a matte top coat to keep it matte! 
Because the neon wasn’t enough, I added some studs. I got the studs from Marshalls in a set of three with different types in each wheel. The heart stud looks huge, but my nails are tiny, so the proportions might be wonky. Instead of leaving the other nails without anything, I added some tiny round studs to them as well. Today I have for you my first in my 21 untried polishes for spring.

Hey!
Today’s little swatchy-swatch is Zoya’s Blaze. This is a ruby red colour. I say ruby as that’s the colour it’s closest to on Wikipedia’s shades of red form what I can tell! It’s got scattered holographic throughout and a jelly look to the polish but it’s opaque in two coats. This is a sister polish to the other scattered holographics from Zoya. Think Storm, Dream, Aurora and Payton. They are one big beautiful family of polish like this, but in different colours. 
I’m honestly not huge into red polish on me, but I liked this one a lot for the days that I wore it. Hey!

I wore this polish the other day. This is Animagi from Pretty & Polished. It’s a thermal, as you can see and it goes from an almost black when cold to an eggplant-y purple when warm and has little teeny holographics throughout. I thought I would try this when my nails grew out a bit as I didn’t see much of the gradient when I wore Tomboyish last week. You can see the colour change in this one quite nicely! 
Of course I smudged a couple nails just before heading out, but it’s not too noticeable, I don’t think. Right….?
Either way, this is a lovely colour. I’m happy I could see the colour change in this one. Formula was good, this was three coats with base and topper. You might be able to get away with two if you do thicker coats. I found it went on fairly sheer so I used a bird coat to be sure of opacity.I wore this polish the other day.
