Day 2: Orange - Sinful Colors - Courtney Orange

Hello, hello! Here is my Day 2 manicure from the 31 Day Challenge... Sinful Colors - Courtney Orange! This is a beautiful bright orange shimmer that's perfect for upcoming Halloween or fall manicures! This is Courtney Orange at two coats and a topcoat of Borghese Brilliante. Unfortunately, the topcoat made it bubble. I guess I'll have to be looking for a new one soon.

Poor Courtney, bubbled by my topcoat.

Look at that shimmer!

All in all, Courtney Orange is a beautifully pigmented orange. It really made me think of Halloween when I had it on and all the little orange pumpkins I'll be expecting to see soon. Come back for more soon... I have a giveaway in the works!

Welcome to Starlight Radiance!

Hello everyone! This is my new nail polish blog as I've just recently transferred all my old posts from my old blog The Clumsy Kiwi. I felt that the name just didn't suit the feel that I wanted my blog to have anymore, and I quite like the new name and hope you all do as well! I've let everyone know on the old page to be redirected here. I've been wanting to do this for a little while now, and I have some things in the works to show you all soon! More 31 Day Challenge manicures coming up shortly along with a couple surprises!

Day 1: Red

Hello all! Everything has been very busy recently, and I'm actually currently wearing my "Day 2" polish right now, because I hadn't gotten around to posting my red yet. So here it is! Del Sol - Heartbreaker. A very nice glittery red polish that turns a bit purple in the sun, though not as purple as that bottle would suggest.

This is three coats of Heartbreaker, a red jelly base with red glitter, that turns into a purple jelly with red glitter in the sun.

Please excuse the tipwear. I believe this was after about three days of wearing the polish, and after helping my mom pack and move a bunch of boxes into a storage unit. She's moving to Texas for a while to be with my grandmother.

Here's a good comparison of the color change in the sun. Very pretty!

And here is another sun comparison, although the ring/pinky fingers had been in the sun for a couple seconds, so they were a little darker than the normal red.

I really love my Del Sol polishes. They are so much fun to watch change color! Also a good indicator as to whether or not your windows in your car are UV-protectant. Hehe. (Mine change color a tiny bit in my car - for shame!) I hope you enjoyed this color as much as I did! As always, happy painting!
