China Glaze OMG Text in Colour 2BKEWL Nail Polishes: Mother’s Day Manicure

Published in: Nails


Happy Saturday, girls. I’m lucky enough to live close to my parents, so tomorrow I’m heading home to visit my mom for Mother’s Day. I thought it might be fun if she and I painted our nails a matching color. Here’s the twist: I would like it to be a slightly obnoxious color, so her yoga friends at the senior center can ask her about it (“Girl, I saw those nails from across the room while I was mid-downward dog!”).


Earlier this week, I painted my nails L8R G8R, a green shade from China Glaze’s OMG Text in Colour 2BHot collection. This weekend, just to switch it up, I think mom might like to rock one of China Glaze’s six cool, shimmery shades from the 2BKEWL collection ($27 for the entire set).

I’m trying to decide among…

OMG (Oh my gawd)– holographic grey with rainbow shimmer
2NITE (Tonight) – holographic blue
IDK (I don’t know) – holographic violet
BFF (Best friends forever) – holographic purple-blue
LOL (Laugh out loud) – holographic dark purple
DV8 (Deviate) – holographic teal

I’m leaning toward DV8, but I think all of them are pretty.








I hope your weekend is off to a good start. What’s on your agenda today?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Hi Glosslizard and Megan,

    Thanks for your comments earlier – there were some issues with the code and somehow in the process of fixing the post I lost ’em all, pooh! I just wanted to let you guys know that they weren’t deleted on purpose, it was accidental.

    Hope ya’ll are having a good Saturday.

    I love DV8!!! I might need that!

  6. Meaghan says:

    OMG reminds me of the metallic shiny dresses often seen on a stripper!!! Oddly enough I like it πŸ™‚

  7. Miss QQ says:

    IDK is really nice. Overall, I am more impressed by the 2BHOT collection as compared to the 2BKEWL collection.

  8. Fia says:

    Oh so pretty, I love nail polish but after a day I have this habit of picking at them and not liking them on my nails anymore and so I have to remove it quickly… kinda crazy I know, so I swore not to buy anymore nail polish, but these look really pretty/cool… I tempted to get some and I really like LOL, maybe cuz Im in a “purple phase” right now. By the way, thanks for your input on Shore Leave comparasion to NextToNothing, I havent used Shore Leave yet cuz I’m weird like that, I think I’ll wait for the Neo Sci Fi collection to decide whether I want it or not

  9. Nikki says:

    You chose the right color! DV8 is the best!!!! LOVE IT!

  10. Dao says:

    I like BFF, I think it’s appropriate for both of you. It’s cute that you and your mom are doing the matching mani-pedi thing. My 2nd choice would be OMG because I like white nail polish πŸ˜€

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Makeuplovesme,

    Girl! I know! They’re kinda crazy but they are fun.

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Erin,

    It’s so fun! I usually don’t wear bright teal blues but I really like it.

    How’s your weekend been?

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Meaghan,

    I like it too! I didn’t think I would when I saw it in the bottle but now I’m really feeling all the crazy, bright colors. Must be beacause summer is right around the corner. Have you had a good weekend so far?

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Mis QQ,

    I think the 2BHOT collection is slightly more wearable. If I was working in a conservative environment I could prolly get away with those shades more than these.

    Are you a bright nail polish kinda girl?

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Fia,

    I am SO EXCITED about Neo Sci Fi, you don’t even know! I really like the colors and they look very wearable to me.

    What top coat are you using for your nails? Have you ever tried Seche Vite? I swear it’s the BEST top coat out there and it makes your polish stay on forever.

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Nikki,

    DV8 is hot, I agree. Hope you’re having a good one!

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    I like white nail polish too, especially for summer. πŸ™‚

    I will have to get through this crazy colors phase first!

  18. lehea says:

    I’m drawn to 2NITE and DV8. If they have those at Ulta, Imma take them home with my 20% off coupon. Haha!

  19. ilovecheese says:

    OMG all the colours are fab!! I especially liked the Dv8 and 2nite! So what colour did you eventually choose?

  20. Miss QQ says:

    Hi Karen, you are right. I think I’m more impressed by the 2BHOT collection because I can picture myself more with those colours.

    Bright nail polish – for my toes only, not fingers. Cannot risk causing headaches to my colleagues while I’m typing away. =P

  21. juicybeauty says:

    Ohhh these are gorgeous! Deviate is my favorite!

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Lehea,

    I hope you found ’em at Ulta. I’ve heard they are quite difficult to find, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for ya. πŸ™‚

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Ilovecheese,

    DV8 was the winner. πŸ™‚ How have you been?

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    Yeah, I hear ya. Sometimes I look at my crazy painted nails when I’m typing and I’m like, “WOW! That’s bright!”

    I am definitely looking forward to sandal season and bright toe nail polish. Do you have a favorite bright shade?

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Juicybeauty,

    Yeah, I like that one a lot, too. πŸ™‚

  26. Jenny says:

    Does anyone know where I can buy these without spending a fortune? I am only 12 and don’t want to blow all my money on nail polish! I really want OMG and I also love DV8 and BFF. They are discontinued and I want them soooooooooooo much! Why can’t they continue making these or make a new holographic collection? They are super popular (at least to me) and they would make lots of money! Other holographic polishes don’t compete with these! πŸ˜‰
