Zoya- Daul

Hey gals!! so today I have an awesome color for you! I decided to go with the amazing Daul!! This polish is insane crazy! When I first put it on I was a little skeptical, but it grew on me and I love it!! It looks absolutely great under certain lights! I used 4 coats and top coat this time around.

Look how pretty!! Even though it did take four coats, it wasn't too thick on the nail. Pretty decent for 4 coats :) Pretty impressed with this one! This is also untried #7!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Essie- Where's my Chauffeur & China Glaze- It's a Trap-eze!

Hey guys!! So today I have two untrieds to share with you!! These will be #'s 5&6!! First up we have a beautiful blue from the Essie Leading Lady (winter 2012) collection! Where's my Chauffeur is a gorgeous blue, that is kind of similar to Turquoise and Caicos, but has a stronger blue tone to it!
It is absolutely stunning!

I really like this polish, although it was a little bit tricky to apply. I had a little trouble with bald spots. I feel like this happens with all the Essie polishes that I own. Am I doing something wrong? haha

Although it is beautiful alone, I decided to layer another polish over it. I got the idea from Darcy on Instagram (@sparrownails) I think that the combination of the two polishes looks nice. I used China Glaze It's a Trap-eze! to put over the blue.

I wasn't loving the way It's a Trap-eze! looked on its own, but I love the way these two look together!! I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks for reading!! I hope you enjoyed!

Nicole by OPI- Count on Me

Hey guys!!!

So today I have an amazing polish for you guys! It will also be untried #4!! I absolutely love this polish!! I got it as a gift and I was just in love! Count on Me is a beautiful multi-chrome polish that consists of hues of blue, turquoise, purple, and sometimes a pink/magenta!

I just have no words.. You can kind of see the purple on my index finger. It is so pretty! All I used was one coat of Count on Me over two coats of Wet n Wild Black Creme.

The bottle is amazing in and of itself! My camera kind of freaked out with this color... but these pictures are pretty color accurate! I can't get over this color!! You can layer this color with so many cremes. There really are so many combinations, and some make this polish look so different!!

Thanks for reading!

Nails Inc.- Baker Street & China Glaze- Pizzazz

Hello to all!! Alright, so today I have two untrieds for you guys! I am absolutely in love with the first one!! It was a major lemming of mine and I am now the very proud owner! For the first polish of this post, I have Nails Inc. Baker Street! This color is amazing in every way!! I highly recommend this polish!! This will be untried polish #2. Now some pictures so you and I can drool together!!

The bottle is amazing in itself!! Just look at it!! I just don't have any words for this!!

Props to Nails Inc. This polish is amazing!! I have a few polishes laying around on my polish desk, one which happened to be China Glaze Pizzazz, an untried polish waiting to be used. I thought it would make a great glitter combo with Baker Street. About to knock off untried #3! This is what I came up with!

A glitter gradient!! Now I know this isn't perfect, but it was my first attempt and practice makes perfect! I love it!! I think the two polishes paired really well together!!

Pizzazz was really easy to use and I think it turned out great!! What do you think??

I hope you enjoyed!!

Orly- Miss Conduct

Ahh!! It's 2013!! I am so excited to see what this year has to bring! For the first mani/blog post of the year, I have chosen Orly Miss Conduct! This polish is absolutely stunning! It was quite hard to capture the holographic element and the color polish, but I think it looks somewhat close. I have to say that this polish is absolutely GORGEOUS in real life. It was part of Orly's winter collection, so if you can get your hands on this polish, I suggest you buy it! It is amazing! Like I said in my last post, this is Untried #1!

Just look at it!!!

Even though the color  accuracy  isn't perfect, I think it still looks pretty!

Do you love it as much as I do?

Thank you so much for reading!!

January- The Month of Untried's!!

Hey guys!! I have made a decision recently as on what to post for the month of January!! As a polish addict (or whatever you would like to classify this great group of ladies I share my love of nails with) I have soooo many polishes that I haven't used. And January is the month where I am going to use them for 31 days! Let's see how many I can knock of the list!! I might even do some nail art with a few of them! For those of you who didn't know.. I have an Instagram! My username is polishedbyrachel and on the pictures I post on there during this month, I will be hashtagging them with #untriedsmonth If you have an Instagram and would like to participate, just use the hashtag! I though I would just make a little post telling you all what I would be doing this month!

Thanks for reading!
