Birthday Nails

I finally found Claire's Candy Shop!!! I didn't think it was something I'd wear too much but I couldn't pass up buying such a cute and fun polish! Plus it's kind of a dupe for a Deborah Lippmann polish! 
After I first wore it, I decided it'd be the perfect polish to wear for my birthday :) I had also recently ordered the Konad Q1 dupe stamping plate from ebay and I thought it'd be perfect to pair the two. I liked that the polish was already so fun and girly but it was even better when I added cute ice cream and candy stamp. I ended up adding a rhinestone accent nail too!
I love my birthday nails!

Pure Ice Vinyl Remix: Glam Rock & DJ Spinner

I was recently sent 2 colors of Pure Ice Vinyl Remix! I was so excited when I first saw how cool these polishes are :) Each set comes with a white base coat and a color changing crackle. I still really like crackle so I think this is so much fun!

I had to play around with the crackles when I first got them in the mail! The picture below is just of what I did when I first got them :)

The Vinyl Remix polishes are available at Walmart for around $6 for a crackle polish and white base. The set also comes with a really cute nail file. There are 6 colors in the collection! A pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I have the pink called Glam Rock and the green called DJ Spinner.

I love watching the polish crackle and seeing the pretty colors it leaves behind! The white base is opaque in one coat and dries pretty fast in my opinion. The crackle polishes are great too, they give an awesome crackle effect and are just as easy to use as other crackle polishes. The best part is that when you use 2 or more colors on one nail it looks like you did a multicolored design under the crackle!

Here's a quick and easy design I did on one hand using the Vinyl Remix polishes!

I tried doing a different design on my other hand too lol!
I also wanted to mention that these polishes have great wear time! My polish usually chips pretty fast but these nails lasted for a good week before I noticed any chipping!

I love these crackles! I can't wait to go out and buy the other colors :)
