Summer manicures are something that I look forward to every year. For this Makeup Wars, I did two different ones. The first incorporates CND Vinylux in Tropix shown below. I have  been getting a week of wear from Vinylux every time that I wear it and I absolutely love it! You can see my previous full review of it here.  Tropix is also one of my favorite shades.

After enjoying plain Tropix for a few days (this picture is actually take on day 3 or 4 of the manicure-you can see the tiniest of chips on my middle finger), I decided to whip up a DIY glitter bomb to put on top. So I went and got some glamour base (I buy mine from tkb trading) and some glitter (mostly from Glitter Unique) and added some bling on top. I was OK with my creation, but in hindsight I think instead of black dots I should have used something more contrasting and fun like yellow and blue or lime green.

Later in the week, I tried out a new nail polish from the Kardashians that I got at Meijer called Khroma. I thought the shades were pretty, but honestly, it didn’t apply all that great and was quite streaky. I’ll write a full review soon. For now, here is  sneak peek of the shade Perfection Perfection.

Then I decided to add some Revlon glitter over it. That didn’t impress me either. There really wasn’t enough glitter in the formula. But it still added a bit of fun sparkle.

  1. LOVE CND Nail Polish! I like the color you chose a lot. That Revlon glitter top coat works better if you fish the glitter out and dab on the nails, sometimes you have to use an orange stick to get the bi shapes to come out. It’s not the best design ever. Either way, both manis are super pretty!

  2. Glitter makes everything better and this is no exception!!

  3. Carleen says:

    Yep, I had thought about getting an orange stick to dig the bigger glitter shapes out, but I got lazy, LOL!

  4. Wow! The sparkle adds so much whimsy! Love it!

  5. Love the sparkle!

  6. I love the glitter mani (and polish!) you made.

  7. Love Tropix!

  8. I love your choices! Yay glitter :)

  9. I love that Tropix!

  10. Love the glitter. I agree with Eugenia – everything is better with glitter.

  11. Tropix is such a pretty shade! :)

  12. I absolutely love the Tropix color you have on. Great color in general as well as on your fingers :) I honestly do not like the black dots of glitter over top. I think it takes away from the beauty of the color. Thanks for sharing. Love your style :)

  13. I like the Khroma shade but if it’s streaky then nah.

  14. That’s it–I have got to try Vinylux! Love CND–their formulas are excellent and that color is phenomenal!

  15. I’ve been interested in that line by CND. I like to glitz up a manicure after about 4-5 days too. It makes the mileage so much better. Coral has been hot in this series.

  16. Those of you who have not tried Vinlylux, you must! It is an awesome polish. Brittney, I hear you on the black dots. I liked them in theory when I was making the glitter, but I wan’t a huge fan once I put them on.

  17. I still need to try Vinylux! I went to Cosmoprof to pick some up, but I got distracted by shampoo and forgot!

  18. I love your posts, thanks for all your tips, more than once I`ve been saved by one of your advices. I love the nude polish, Kardashians one:) but if it`s quality is not so good I prefer the Tropix, indeed a lovely color
