Ozotic - 512

Today I have another Ozotic to show you. This one is 512. I picked it up at a blog sale that one of the girls on in my Facebook polish groups was having.

512 is a light blueish color holo. It looks gorgeous in the bottle and even better on your hands!!

Ozotic 512

I used one coat of Sally Hansen Black Out and two coats of 512. This is much lighter looking on my hands than Ozotic 532 but just as amazing looking!

One coat of Sally Hansen Black Out; two coats of Ozotic 512

This looks awesome in bright light. It has a lot of definition. In dark light, it looks like dense light blue glitter.
It's awesome! I know that Ozotics are a little expensive, but they are well worth the cost!

Everyone needs Ozotic in their life!

All in all, I'm in love with Ozotic. I'd really like to try a green or a bronze colored one. I will continue to hunt them down through blog sales if possible. You can also purchase them at Llarowe right now. 

Pretty holo!!

Hope you enjoyed today's post. If you have any Ozotics you would like to give a nice home, hit me up!

Today I have for you Chocolotta Love from Lynnderella. This is the third Lynnderella polish I've added to my collection. For those of you who have never heard of Lynnderella, she makes all of her own polish, much like my friend Pam from Pam's Girly Bits. I also have Connect the Dots, which I love, and Bibbity Bobbity Boo Blue, which is still untried.

Lynnderella's Chocolotta Love

According to Lynn's site, Lynnderella, this polish is a blend of multi-sized hexagons and squares, black microglitter, as well as scattered yellow, red, purple, turquoise, lime and emerald "candies" in a sheer chocolate base. It's compared to brownies with M&M's baked in.

I thought this may look good over a bronze polish as it would help pick up the browns and different colored glitters in the polish. I chose OPI's Brisbane Bronze. It's one of my favorite colors from OPI.

Left: OPI Brisbane Bronze. Right: Lynnderella's Chocolotta Love
Turns out I was completely wrong. This combo doesn't work for me. I don't know if the bronze makes the black microglitter stand out too much, but instead of thinking M&M brownies, I thought more like loose tobacco.
One coat of Brisbane Bronze, two coats of Chocolotta Love.
Lynderella's polishes are always gorgeous in the bottle, and I love Connect the Dots. I'm still on the fence about this one. I'm thinking I'll try it over at least one or two other colors before I decide to swap it. Especially since get Lynn's polishes are so hard. I almost fell guilty for not loving it right away.

I think it's the black microglitter that  I don't like.

Here is a blurred picture so you can see some of the different colored glitters.

Lots of pretty colored glitters in there!

If you have any suggestions for base colors for me to try, feel free to leave a comment!! And, as always, I must leave you with some puppy spam.

Ozotic 532 and cake hand scrub -PICTURE HEAVY

Hey ladies!
Today I have an awesome polish for you! It's called 532 from Ozotic. Seems like a simple name, but this is anything but a simple polish!

Ozotic 532

Ozotics come from the land of Australia. At least that's where mine came from. A friend wanted to do a group order, so I decided to go in and get a polish. I chose 532. It's a gorgeous purply, blue, silver holo.

Holo polishes seem to work best over a darker polish, so the day that mine came, I ran to CVS and picked up a cheapy Sally Hansen black creme. It's called Black Out. I used one coat of Black Out with one coat of 532, topped off with a nice shiny topcoat of Seche Vite. All I can say is ......awesome!

One coat of Ozotic 532
Needless to say, I've gotten a ton of compliments on this polish. When I was out covering a high school basketball game, the two scorekeepers from the visiting team said how much they loved my nails! It's a very pretty polish and watching it change colors has become a new hobby of mine!

Up close shot of Ozotic 532

I actually just picked up another Ozotic, 513, recently in a blog sale. I can't wait to get more of this polish! I'd really like to get the light blue holo they make. This polish is rather expensive though. It goes for $17.50 on llarowe, but it's one of the few places you can find it. We made a group order with Picture Polish in Australia, but the shipping would be super expensive (we got ours free after an out of stock issue kept it from coming back on a plane with someone). I keep snooping around blog sales hoping to find more.

Before I go, I also wanted to show you a hand scrub I recently got at It's called cake-milk made smoothing hand and cuticle buffer.

cake hand scrub

I really love the OPI hand scrub, but was looking for an alternative for when I wasn't going to the salon as much. I settled on this. It's a 4.9 fl. oz jar and retails for $16. It's out of stock right now at, but you can get it for $18 at the cake beauty site

approved by puppies and pawlish too!

The hand scrub smells awesome. It's formulated with sugar, milk proteins, avocado, coconut oils and is vitamin packed, according to the label. I'm not sure what vitamins are in it, but it left my hands feeling silky smooth after 30 seconds!

The little spoon is included! This is what it looks like once it's all stirred up!

The scrub is easy to use. Once you get the bottle home, you need to take the little spoon that's included and mix up the sugar and the oils. It takes a good swirl. Then you take a little amount, I probably use less than half the spoon. You put a little on your palm and rub it all over your hands, concentrating on the cuticles.

scrub a dub dub!!

I used it just before putting on my ozotic polish. You should also use some lotion afterwards. I like OPI avojuice in coconut melon. Make sure you only use the scrub for 30 seconds. I did it about 15 to 20 seconds longer not realizing it and my hands were a little sore. The next time I used it, I timed myself and I had no issues. This product does wonders for my cuticles!

Well I hope you enjoyed today's post!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Polished Components - Earth's Day

Hello everyone!
Yesterday I told you I would show you a polish I got from my friend Ashley Kersey at Polished Components etsy store. She has some great stuff in there, including Earth's Day, which is a special effects top coat. It turns from green to rose to gold. And it's gorgeous!

Earth's Day over Revlon Rain Forest

This polish works best on darker polishes, like black, navy blue or dark green. I think I spent an hour yesterday just moving my fingers back and forth to watch the color change. Polished Components polishes are a great price too. I bought four of the "Day" polishes (Earth, Water, Fire and Soul). There is also one called Air's Day. There is a corresponding group of five "Night" polishes too. You can pick them up for $4 (.5 ml bottle). Or you can group them together for a great deal.

One coat of Rain Forest and one coat of Earth's Day

When you get these home, you may think they look a little similar. But if you hold them up to the light, you can see the holographic quality and figure out which colors it would look good over top of. 

I've ordered a few polishes made by friends I've met online and Ashley's are top notch. I received then in just a few days. Please consider checking out her store!

Tomorrow, I have another great holographic topcoat, as well as that awesome hand scrub I picked up from Cake!

Till then, here is a little Zeke puppy spam for you!

Hope you liked Mommy's blog today!

Hello everyone!!
Today I have a really great polish for you. It's from the Girly Bits line, which is made by my polish friend Pam Heil. She does amazing work, and this polish is no exception! Pam sells her polishes through her website Pam's Girly Bits and will also be selling through llarowe sometime this month.

Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean

When I first saw Cosmic Ocean, I knew I had to have it. I mean it's a blue holographic polish! I think I love duochrome polishes more than glitter or flakies. This is a blue/green/purple duochrome polish, which is intended to be used as a topcoat.

Revlon Colorstay in Midnight topped with Cosmic Ocean
For this picture I used the new Revlon Colorstay polish in Midnight. That polish is gorgeous on its own, but once you add a coat of Cosmic Ocean ---- WOW! I used a base coat of Sally Hansen Strengthner, one coat of Midnight, one coat of Cosmic Ocean and a topcoat of Seche Vite.

So sparkly and pretty!
Pam says on her website that it is very hard to capture this polish by camera and she's right. Being a duochrome it looks different in all types of light. Pam sells this color, along with many others on her site. A 5ml bottle is $6, while a 15ml bottle is $10. She ships from Canada, but it comes very quickly!

This is the really cute packaging the polish comes in! I love Pam's logo!

Here is one last picture I took of Cosmic Ocean. This is without a flash. 

You can see more of the green in this photo.

All I can say, is if you can get your hands on some Girly Bits polish, do it! It's a pleasure to deal with Pam and her polish is worth the money and the short wait. I'm already planning to place another order in the near future. 

Before I go, I wanted to share a picture of the nail mail/Walmart haul I got the other day. Along with Girly Bits, I also picked up four duochrome polishes from my friend Ashley Kersey at Polished Components. Tomorrow, I will have a review of one of her polishes called Earth's Day! It's stunning!

Front, from left, Soul's Day, Earth's Day, Cosmic Ocean, Water's Day and Fire's Day. In back are Revlon Scented Grape Icy, Revlon Color Stay in Rain Forest, Sally Hansen glitter, Revlon Color Stay in Midnight and Revlon Scented in Raspberry Rapture.
Thanks for checking in!

Today I have for you an Essie polish I picked up with a voucher I got to the website A friend of mine (Sarah Camille) sent me a referral link, which gave me $10 off any purchase at Bloomspot. It's basically like Groupon or Living Social. They had a deal for a gift certificate $50 for $25. With the $10 referral, I paid $15!

I picked up two Essie polishes, an OPI polish, a POP eyeliner and a really great hand and cuticle scrub, that I will review later this week. It was a great deal!

Play Date caught my eye because it reminds me of a purple polish I had in high school and loved!

Essie - Play Date

Play Date is from the new Go Overboard collection. I have one other color from the collection as well, (Go Overboard, which is a tealish blue), but this is my favorite by far.

I think the formula on this is really good. In fact, I probably could have gotten away with one coat. For demonstration purposes, I used two coats. I started with OPI Chip Skip, Sally Hansen Strengthening Basecoat, two coats of Play Date and a topcoat of Seche Vite.

Two coats of Play Date, a flirty, light purple

This is a true lilac color. It looks good on nubbins, which I finally went down to earlier this week because of a couple breaks. It also looks good on light to medium skin like mine. I think it would look even better on darker skin as well.

It's really hard to capture the the true color of Play Date, but it does look very close on my pinkie here

This is my fourth Essie polish, not counting the four minis I have too. I have found that the formula varies from polish to polish. I have used Go Overboard from this collection and it seems very thick and hard to work with. The Play Date formula was much easier and was not streaky or thick.

Nubbin friendly Play Date!
I would definitely recommend this polish to anyone with short nails and any skin tone. It's one of those polishes that I think would look good on anyone. What do you all think of it?
