So when I found this video on how to remove glitter nail polish easily, I just can’t wait to share with you.  Basically just soak nail wipes with polish remover than allow them to sit on nails for couple minutes. Hold them on nails with the help of aluminum foil.  Well, just click the link below to watch the video.

Choose Your Glitters

Wow, do you realize it’s already end of year? I hear people comment that over and over. And it’s right; it’s beginning to look like Christmas now. I love December. Without it, it would be a gloomy and boring winter. I hope you approach it with a joyful heart.

I would like to show off some Adoree nail polish glitters that I think would complement your look greatly for this holidays seasons.

Adoree Nail Polish Glitters

Adoree nail polish has a great collection of Adoree nail polish glitters.  And they are big-3 free nail polishes and long lasting. It’s only 6 bucks per bottle for .65 oz, compare with .5 oz of OPI nail polish.

Here are some Adoree nail polish glitters to review this time. These are not all of the glitters. To see all visit Adoree nail polish glitters. Adoree nail polish is also great for gifts.

Adoree Stardust White #153 is micro silver glitter with clear base. Adoree Limelight #239 has tiny and strips glitter with clear yellow base polish. Adoree Seaport Blue #249 has micro blue glitters with clear base polish.  Adoree Wild Inkberry #234 has colorful micro purple and red glitters with clear polish.  And lastly, Adoree Reef Green #250 has micro emerald green glitters with clear base polish.

Adoree Holy Green and Golden Star are similar as they have micro glitters in clear base polish. Adoree Million Red has tiny red and silver glitter in clear base. Adoree Hamilton Blue is kinda unique as it has colorful micro glitter (red, white, blue, etc) in clear base polish, with more blue glitters in it. Thus the name hamilton blue.

All these glitters are great for layering as they have clear base polish to cover the nail polish underneath it. If it is used alone, it would just show the glitters. Here’s Adoree Hamilton Blue #220.

Adoree nail polish is available at Esther’s Nail Center with only $6 per bottle. It has over 150 colors. I hope they will have new colors in the future. Happy holidays!

Solid Glitter Nail Accent

Glitter nail as an accent or for whole nails are great for the upcoming festive months. Want to know the secret how to create one? Here’s a nice post on how to have solid glitter nail from TiffanyD blog, as well as a way to use your long-forgotten loose glitters.

So here’s the situation, you want a super rich glitter nail but no lumpy and thick nail from too many layers of glitter nail polish. The trick is you can use the loose nail glitter to create this solid-glitter nail as an accent or for all nails.

Here’s what to do:
1. Paint all of your nails a normal non-glittery color.
2. Pick an “accent” nail for the glitter (Or go crazy and do all of them…your call.)
3. Use a thick top coat and paint that over the nail to be glittered.
4. Working over a paper plate or bowl, gently dip the nail into the glitter or sprinkle the glitter directly over the nail (like I did in this case because the container was too small for dipping action).
5. Let the glitter “set” for a minute or two, giving the top coat time to dry.
6. Rinse the nail under cold water to get any excess glitter off the nail. Don’t worry, if it’s cold water, it won’t mess anything up.
7. Paint another coat of  topcoat over the glitter.

This process only takes only a couple minutes with amazing result. For details you can visit her blog.

Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish #2

This is a continuation from previous article “Pinks from Adoree Nail Polish #1”. I’d like to present another set of 4 pinks from Adoree collection. These nail polishes are available at Esther’s Nail Center.

Adoree #143 Hot LipsAdoree #164 Rose FreezeAdoree #212 BegoniaAdoree #213 Ribbon Pink

From left to right:

Adoree #143 Hot Lips – Just like it’s name this color is a hot pink with blue tone iridescent finish. More to satin look than glossy. It’s a vibrant color that would really show on nails.

Adoree #164 Rose Freeze – A perfect name for this pink since it hold a bit glitters in it. When applied on nail, it’ll show only subtle glitters.  A shimmer pastel pink. Because of the glitter characteristic, it may need some layers for even finish.

Adoree #212 Begonia –  I love this medium, dusty rose pink. It comes to a shimmer, almost metallic finish.

Adoree #213 Ribbon Pink – This is like the color of pale pink ribbon with subtle green iridescent look.  A very pale pink, similar to natural pink French Manicure.

Love pink? Couldn’t get enough?  Then wait for the next post of the other 4 pink shades.

Sheer Glitter Toppers

Have you ever purchased a glitter polish thinking it looked a little sheer… but that you might be able to get away with wearing three coats, only to discover that it’s really sheer, as in six-coats-to-opacity-sheer and now you don’t know what to do with it?

I buy these sorts of polishes on purpose, and they’re dead useful. I call them “sheer glitter toppers” and the following post will illustrate various ways in which you can use them.

Glitter Nail Polish

I’ve yet to find a sheer glitter topper that doesn’t look awesome layered over black. Almost all sheer glitters with large pieces of glitter in them will change color in the light, but it’s something that’s usually not visible until layered over a dark creme.

Sheer Glitter Polish

Pictured is one coat of black nail polish with one coat of Adorée’s “Riding Hood” over. In the bottle, “Riding Hood” appears orange with golden glitter, but when applied over black it flashes orange to green which is really cool. You certainly aren’t limited to black when applying toppers to get this effect, any dark creme will work. Last fall a lot of “nearly-blacks” were released, those sorts of colors will also work well to bring out the color-changing qualities in most sheer glitter toppers.

Adoree Wild Inkberry #234

In addition to layering sheer glitter toppers over black or nearly-black cremes, you can layer them over other glitter polishes in order to create new combination glitters. By that I mean, the final result will show the two different glitter colors mixed and it will appear as if your polish was initially made up of more than one glitter color. (Doesn’t it look like these two bottles had a little swatch baby?) If you get bored of the glitters you have, this is a simple and interesting way to make a “new” polish.

Pictured above is two coats of Adorée’s “Wild Inkberry” with one coat of Zoya’s “Vegas Freeze” on top.

Likewise, if you have a colored creme that you wish was a glitter, a sheer glitter topper will add shimmer to your polish without changing the creme color itself. Your base color will shine through while your sheer glitter topper adds a bit of interest.

Adoree Sheer Glitter #237

Finally, my favorite way to wear sheer glitter toppers are as French manicure polishes. While a traditional nude-tinted French manicure polish always looks nice, using a sheer glitter topper instead can turn a plain French manicure into something more interesting and fun, especially if you replace your white tips with a bright creme.

Pictured above is two coats of OPI’s “I’m Indi-a Mood for Love” as tips with one coat of Adorée’s “Ice Mist” over.

Whether you layer them over black, use them to transform other polishes into a new glitter variant or use them as French manicure polishes, sheer glitter toppers are extremely useful polishes to have in your collection.

Review of Adoree Galaxy Black #245

Flinty at Polish or Perish reviewed Adoree Galaxy Black #245 for her readers in October 2009.  Here’s what she said “I really haven’t ever been so disappointed in my camera (and my photography skills) as when I was taking photos of this polish. It’s so glittery and attractive in person but it’s hard to capture photo or video. In these photos, it looks like what it is: silver glitter in black jelly. IRL though, it sparkles like you would imagine a black glitter to sparkle. This was a NOTD and held up very well with Nubar Diamont: much less tipwear than I usually experience. Three coats in the photos”.
