Yes, I know it’s the middle of winter (at least it is here in the US), but today I have the Gelish Sizzling Summer Collection to share with you. These polishes are all “showstoppers” in my opinion! I can’t believe I waited this long to try these colors… they are stunning! These all had full coverage with just two coats and applied flawlessly.
This is Sunrise and the City, a gorgeous duochrome. It really does remind me of a sunrise with the burning shades of orange.
This is Shake Your Money Maker, a sparkly olive green. I didn’t expect to like this one, but once it was applied I LOVED it!
This is Showstopping! Wow… this one totally blew me away. I took pics of this one in the lightbox and under an OttLite to try to show you how shiny and sparkly it is, but the photos still don’t do this color justice. Love, love, love!
And finally, this is Big City Siren, a sparkly red beauty.

This is one of my favorite summer colors – Tiger Blossum by Harmony Gelish. I receive compliments on the color everywhere I go – even today at the Lube Stop of all places, the guy servicing my car said he loved the color. LOL I just purchased a couple of new Gelish nail colors that I can’t wait to try – more soon!

I decided to do my nails in a beach-y theme for my trip. The color inspiration is from my new bikini – a swatch of the design is pictured to the right. It has pink and orange accents, and I decided to gradient these colors to make a sunset look. This mani is actually a blend of regular polish and gel. This is the first time I’ve done a mani this way so I’m curious as to how long it will actually last. I’ll let you know if it holds up. This design was inspired by this gorgeous mani at Pshiiit.
The first color that I applied is China Glaze “Orange You Hot”. I added two coats of this on top of my Gelish base. I let this layer dry for over an hour before applying a thin Gelish top coat and then sponging on the pink, which is Gelish “Gossip Girl”. The pics don’t actually do this mani justice – it looks way better in person. And I even polished my toes to match – but I’ll spare you the ugly feet pics.
