I'm so excited about these tiny Xs and Os!! I got a tiny brush to cooperate with me and now I'm going to use that brush forever! ๐Ÿ˜ The holo top coat I used looks kinda weird in my photos, but trust me, it looks really nice irl, delicate and pretty. Swipe to see a swatch of my base polish by itself, it's a really nice nude! Took three coats, but I'm really satisfied with the shade. Polishes used: #SinfulColors "Coco Bae" #HoloTaco "One-Coat Black" and "Scattered Holo Taco" #SecheVite top coat

@k.dillion tagged me to post my top two most-liked posts, so here they are! Had to do some creative cropping to get them both in here ๐Ÿ˜ I loved both of these manis! You guys have good taste (; I tag @crissantnails and @megapeace_sandysunshine, if you guys would like to share your top two most-liked posts.

My next #Zoya polish is a gold topper called "Maria Luisa", which was recommended to me by @kam.desertpups. (Thank you!) It's so fun! I don't have any other gold toppers like this, so I'm super glad I got it. Here I'm wearing two coats of it over three coats of #KissGel DTGNP07 plus #SecheVite top coat.

#Zoya polish number two! This is three coats of "Lotus" plus #SecheVite top coat. This one was a little disappointing, actually. I wasn't impressed with the formula, it took three coats and I still was getting some bald patches. Plus the color usually looks more dusty than in this photo. Not sure if that was my camera getting overexcited or just unique lighting. It's not a bad color, just... Meh. Would be a good neutral color, if that's something you need, but also, it's not very exciting.

Finally getting a chance to play with the four polishes I got from #Zoya a while ago! Thanks to everyone who reached out to help me make my decision on which four to get ๐Ÿ˜ It was tough! I saw @catsnlacquer swatch this ages ago and saved their post to remind me to buy, and I'm so glad I did! This is two coats of "Zooey", no top coat because I wanted to feel the texture. It's very fun to run my fingers over, but next time I'll add top coat so it lasts longer.

Added some heart tips to my last swatch! Red and purple isn't my favorite color combination so I'm not sure why I went for this? But it was good practice getting some nice lines without using tiny brushes! Polishes used: #OPI "The Thrill of Brazil" #LAColors "Hocus Pocus" #HoloTaco "One-Coat Black" #SecheVite top coat

I've got another thrift store #OPI find! This is two coats of "The Thrill of Brazil" plus #SecheVite top coat. It's not quite opaque, could probably benefit from a white base coat, but let's be real, I'm probably never going to actually do that! Too much work. ๐Ÿ˜… I do really like bright, candy apple reds like this one, so I'm happy I found it!

This OPI polish was surprisingly sheer! I painted my toes with it first and thought maybe I could do a pond mani with it, but it turns out it's not that sheer ๐Ÿ˜… So I amended my original idea and just mixed it with white polish to get a gradient for my dots. Worked out fine even though I was rushing to get the dots done before my mixed polishes dried! Polishes used: #OPI "Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees" #KissGel DTGNP07 #SecheVite top coat
