Icing Power to the Pink Nail Polish

Icing's Power to the Pink is the second nail polish I purchased in my Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off purchase. I thought it was an interesting polish because it reminds me of a neon pink version of a Deborah Lippmann glitter/jelly polish.

Power to the Pink is polish with large hexagonal and small holo glitters in a pink base. It has a slightly goopy consistency and has a rough texture, so it will need at least 2 layers of top coat.

Icing Lemme See Your Peacock

As Katy Perry said in her song Peacock, "Lemme See Your Peacock." I went on a mini shopping spree at Icing yesterday and picked up 4 nail polishes on their perpetual Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off deal.

One particular glitter polish caught my eye and it was aptly titled Lemme See Your Peacock because it does remind of the colours of peacock feathers. It is a beautiful mix of large aqua, green and fuchsia hexagonal glitters. It is a fairly dense glitter polish with a clear base.

2 Manicures, 1 Box of Sally Hansen Salon Effects

I recently picked up my third box of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips when I was redeeming my Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum Points (Canadian's know the goodness of what I'm talkin' about). The difference between these nail appliqu├ęs and most others I have come across is that these are made up of the equivalent of 6 layers of nail polish, whereas others are just stickers.

The pattern I picked up was 440 Animal Instinct. It has a pink, slightly glittery base, with black zebra stripes.

The Hunger Games - Capitol Style

I was originally asked by a friend of mine to create a look inspired by The Hunger Games, but the project was pushed back by a third party... I decided to post this video anyway and design another look for the project.

This look was designed with the Capitol City people in mind. The men and women had bright lipstick and hair and some had dyed skin and facial tattoos. To people from the various districts, they looked like clowns.
