Wow. Just wow.

Next up is the first color from the Fall Chic collection and my favorite of the bunch, Midnight Rainbow. This black jelly is packed with holographic and metallic circle glitters of multiple sizes, and a whole rainbow of flecks and glitters. It’s gorgeous! Shown above is three coats, but you can layer one coat over black if you want a less intense effect. This polish, like the others, required topcoat to smooth it.

 

Pink Gumballs

Candy shop 023

I used three coats of Candy Shop for the picture above, and seriously HOW FUN IS THIS?! I love the variety of glitter in the bubblegum pink jelly base, it’s just too cute. The formula was a bit thick, but not too problematic. Best part you ask? It’s super affordable!

Grab a toothpick

This is a really nice polish with blue micro glitter and big fuchsia with sporadic holo stars.  As cute as polishes are with the big glitter like the stars are, they are also a huge pain in the butt.  I had to put the stars in place with a toothpick because it just wasn’t happening when I brushed it on.   Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes :).

Today I have some absolutely stunning polishes from Glam Polish to share with you. Rachel offered me the opportunity to review some of her new polishes and I jumped at the offer! If you don’t already know it Rachel makes some really amazing polishes and this collection is really no exception.

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.

Royallacquerrazzberryberet2

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.

Out of this world

 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

DSCN3180

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

Dancelegendzebrasoma2

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.
