For the Queen

IMG 7784

It’s a perfect bright yet rich cobalt, leaning slightly violet as cobalt does, without being in any way a blurple. (It has much more of a violet undertone however than, say, Barry M Cobalt.) This was also a dream to apply – two coat creamy application and it spread like butter. I was a little worried that it might be similar to H&M blue my mind, but I compared them earlier, and this is considerably deeper and more obviously blue. It’s really beautiful. If you’re half way thinking about it, buy it.

SpaRitual Bravery is dark shade of purple with matte finish yet it is not completely flat. It has tiny shimmery particles that peak through the matte colour. The formula is very good and easy to apply and it’s also well pigmented. I’ve applied two coats for perfect coverage and no topcoat of course ;) The polish itself dried fast but I would recommend you to allow extra time just to make sure it hardened enough.

Overall I really like this colour. I think I would love a pure dark grey with no hint of taupe but this is still really nice for my taupe polish fix. It’s a nice dark neutral for winter if you’re willing to let your nails looks bit like the sky in a cloudy thunderstorm! Well that’s what it reminds me of, anyway. In a good way, of course.

I love love love this. Its so mysterious. A dark gray creme with a touch of green. Stormy Weather is my type of polish. I love deep, dark, murky shades, and this is just that! Formula was also fantastic, two coats for full coverage.

KB Shimmer Beach Please borders on neon magenta pink. This is so close to being a neon, but thankfully it photographs better than neons do, so you can get a real idea of what it looks like. This is two coats.

Zoya normani 

Hi guys today I have the Zoya Natural Collection to share with you all. I didn’t think I’d like this collection at first because it looked pretty boring but I ended up really liking the whole collection!

For some reason I had a hard time coming up with accurate color descriptions for these shades so I will be using Zoya’s color descriptions!

Zoya Normani, 2 coats A sauble mauve cream. So pretty although I think I may have a color or two that is very similar to this one!

Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic is a gorgeous magenta creme.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply.  This is such a gorgeous pink!  It has a fantastic natural gloss and pops like you wouldn’t believe. Shown is two coats of Primrose Hill Picnic.

Hi all, today is my much overdue review of some Nanacoco polishes I received from HB Beauty Bar. I’ve already reviewed some of their foil shades here, but today I have some of their basic polish line colors. These polishes apply beautifully, have great formulas, and they are available for just $3.00 a bottle! (And you will find a discount code at the end of this review, too!)

First up, we have Nanacoco Romantic Cruise, a baby blue cream that (despite the name) looks perfect for winter! Shown above is two coats. This is a definite favorite out of the polishes I am showing you today. As simple of a color as it is, I didn’t have any like it in my collection, so you will definitely be seeing it in some nail art.

The glitter accents are two coats of KBShimmer You Autumn Know over one of Barry M White.

I create the waterfall nail art (tutorial here) over a base of Rimmel Sunset Bronze. I used a nail art brush to apply the stripes using Barry M Gold Foil, Rimmel Purple Reign, Essie Jag-U-Are, China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around and Sally Hansen Sun Kissed.

There’s not much else to say about it so I’ll get right to the photos…I’ve taken them in various lighting to give you an idea of how this will look throughout the day and in artificial lighting at night.  I know not everyone is in love with green but I LOVE IT!

Hey, fever

Newgrass2

New Grass is a pretty spring green with an appropriate name :)  It’s a thinner formula, but not runny–very good, actually!  This one applied relatively easily!  This shows three coats, but two would’ve been okay if you let it dry it between coats.  I’m super impatient and tried to get each coat on one after the other and then….I dragged my hair through it, hah!  I liked this color a lot more than I thought I would.
