Guest Post: Nory from Fierce Makeup and Nails

Good afternoon, ladies!  

Unfortunately, I've been forced to stop swatching or wearing nail polish for a few days (I'm crying inside, believe me).  Instead, I asked my dear friend Nory from Fierce Makeup and Nails to do guest posts for today and tomorrow.  She graciously agreed and I'm really pleased to have her show off some of her really lovely polish combos on my blog.

Without further ado, the lovely Nory...


Hello all you Amandalandish followers!

I'm Nory and I have a little blog called, Fiece Makeup and Nails.  I was so happy and nervous when the lovely Amanda, asked me to do a guest post for her blog.  Happy because it was an honor and nervous because I had no idea what to do.

I remembered that I had recently picked up one of the new Essie Luxeffects top coats.  My favorite one of all is, Shine of the Times.  I had also picked up some more Essence polishes at Ulta and used, Just in Case.  I used it as a base color and then applied one coat of the top coat.  It totally changed, Just in Case, and made it a beautiful color changing mani that reminded me of beautiful fall leaves.  It changed the copper polish into something completely amazing in my opinion.

In this picture the copper makes the polish darker

The top coat makes the green and gold come out.

With winter just around the corner, this fall mani is one of the last ones of the season for me. I really recommend adding this gorgeous flakie top coat to your collection because it will totally make a simple mani fierce with a simple coat.

Hope you all enjoyed this simple mani.  Amanda thank you once again for this great opportunity, to share my passion with polish and cool new polishes will all your followers.


I'm not really a layerer, but this combo is beyond awesome.  Fall being my favorite season, this mani just blows me away.  I wish Nory could just bottle the whole thing in one!  Plus, how gorgeous is that color with her skin tone?  This is one of my all-time favorite manis from Nory and I'm so flattered that she decided to share this with me and my followers.  For more awesome creations, be sure to follow her over at Fierce Makeup and Nails!

Thank you again, Nory, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for tomorrow!


  1. Wow I had never seen flakies layered with this base before!  love it =)

  2. Very pretty! Can't believe that's just one coat!
