20130924 vivid lacquer make a spot check

I completely gasped when I pulled Make a Spot Check from the package. This polish is gorgeous! It includes four sizes of round glitters (you know how I love round glitter) in silver, blue, purple, pink, gold and green. I even found a few surprise hearts! This polish can easily be applied using the dabbing technique with minimal fishing for larger glitters. I dabbed on a coat and then placed some of the large glitters using a dotting tool. Shattered Oasis is my base.

Royal Lacquer Razz Berry Beret is a raspberry jelly loaded with multi-sized red holographic & metallic hexes and squares.  The formula was a bit on the thick side for a jelly.  I did have to use a bit of finesse with it for a smooth surface.  The is such a fun shade to wear! Shown is two coats of Razz Berry Beret.

 Smitten polish look to the western sky 0044444444444

Today we have the first Smitten Polishes to hit the blog.  This is a brand I’ve had my eye on for some time.  I’ve bought a couple, but only a couple, as every time I look, most of the polishes seem to be those milky white glitters that I just cannot get away with wearing.

Luckily however, Noelie’s new collection is bursting with colour, and I was super excited when she offered to send me 3 for review.  Now, it probably won’t surprise you that I asked for a purple, but WAIT, STOP THE CLOCKS, I also asked for 2 greens.  Uh huh.   But obviously I’m going to start with the purple …  :)

Smitten Polish Look To The Western Sky is gobsmackingly sensational.  As a purple lover, it takes something quite exceptional to knock my socks off these days.  Well, this is it!

This is an intense purple vinyl polish which is obscenely bright (I’m amazed the photos are as accurate as they are). By vinyl, I mean this dries to a matte, rubbery finish.  I know a lot of you are going to love that.  I liked it, but was in a hurry, so just went straight to glossy with a lick of Poshe.

It’s a party

Fly with Me by Color Club seemed like the perfect choice. And guess what? It was! How awesome is this combo? While Random Dancing is inspired by the TV show iCarly this look reminds me more of Rugrats (Oh 90’s Nick how I miss thee) for some reason. Random Dancing is a mix of Large Square glitters in Blue, Purple, Red and Green. Smaller Yellow-Golden Squares and smaller Purple glitters that make up “the base”. I flippin love the “randomness” of this polish and how every nail looks entirely different.

Mardi Gras

 20141007 julieg mardis gras

I want to share some crazy nails I created using the JulieG Mardis Gras Collection. This set includes six blingy, mega-glitters that give you a textured, jewel encrusted look without topcoat, or a super glittery finish with topcoat.

To get this look, I took a small nail art brush and dabbed on each of the six colors in a random pattern. It took two passes to get everything opaque. I didn’t worry about creating a gradient between shades, nor was I going for crisp lines. You could say this was sort of an experiment. But I LOVE how it came out! It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. I wore this out to run errands (on only one hand…LOL) and got stopped everywhere I went!

Caviar Collection

Dance Legend Zebrasoma is a cool blue jelly loaded with micro hexes and squares in black and white.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I absolutely adore this one! Shown is two coats of Zebrasoma.

Wing Dust Waking Dream Swatch 2

Wing Dust Waking Dream is a dark purple jelly with pink, red and silver glitter, including hexes, circles, stars, and tiny hair glitter. It also has a very subtle shimmer, but it’s not very noticeable on the nails. I do love how dark and dreamy this one is – a classic Wing Dust! Application was good, but I recommend two coats of top coat (or Gelous) to smooth out the glitter. This was 3 coats.

Scales

CrowsToes Dragon In Drag 3

CrowsToes Dragon in Drag is a glitter topper full of various sizes and shapes of blue, green and gold glitter. This is my favorite of the collection, it looks all under the sea over blue! The formula was a little thick but very glitter dense and easy to apply. I used 1 coat over Misa Winter Bluesy Blues for the photos below.

Summer by the pool

Today I have more polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections! I am finding myself falling in love with this brand; the polishes are beyond beautiful and they apply so smoothly. They are unlike any indie polish I know because they don’t require any dabbing or fishing for glitters – you can apply these polishes like a regular polish, and they turn out beautifully. The polishes I am showing you today are from their summer collection, but they are going to be restocked in mid-November, so you’ll have a chance to pick these beauties up.

First up is Pool-side Par-tay, a beautiful blue polish that looks perfect for winter as well.

Let’s take a moment to drool at this beauty! Pool-side Par-tay is a royal blue packed with varying blue, silver, and holographic glitters in different sizes, as well as a copper microshimmer. All of the glitters were suspended perfectly in the base and required no fishing – above is three smooth coats, no dabbing necessary!

Get jolly

Different Dimension This Is Not Fir 2

Different Dimension This Is Not Fir is a green jelly with silver and green circle, square and hex glitter throughout. This is nice layered or on it’s own. I used it on its own for my swatch but I think next time I’ll layer it, I think it would probably look great over China Glaze Holly Day! The formula was good, it is a little sheer on it’s own but builds to be opaque in 3 coats. 

Surprise dance party!

Hey guys! Today I have a some polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections, a Canadian indie brand with beautiful unique polishes that will make your jaw drop! They are packed with glitter and amazing color combinations, and I love them. These polishes are from the Fall 2013 collection, which will be available on November 18th.

Did I not warn you about how beautiful these polishes are?! Muskoka Sunset is a bright purple crelly filled with bright pink, orange, periwinkle and lavender glitters that suspend perfectly in their base. This polish truly looks like a beautiful sunset, and it is so unique. Shown above is three coats, no fishing or dabbing required.
