Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have the newest Girly Bits Collection called What Really Happened In Vegas to share with you! These were inspired by Pam's trip to Cosmoprof North America in Vegas. Sadly I didn't attend this year (darn lack of disposable income due to saving for a condo). However after Pam was in Vegas this year she had a little family vacay in my neck of the woods so we met up and had a yummy dinner. It was so awesome to finally get to meet her in person after talking via email and Facebook for so long! I loved hearing about how Pam comes up with polishes and organizes everything, I find that kind of stuff so interesting! Anyway, this collection is 4 gorgeous holos, not only are the polishes pretty but the names are pretty awesome too! Check out the swatches after the jump!

Pretty & Polished It's Funnier in Enochian (Partial) Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have 3 polishes from a new Pretty & Polished Collection called It's Funnier in Enochian to share with you! This collection is a 5 piece collection inspired by the TV show Supernatural!

I Can Quit Anytime I Want is a dark blackened red jelly that dries matte. I really like the finish of this, it looks perfect matte and if you want a nice shine it looks great with top coat also. The formula was good, due to the jelly nature it does go on a bit sheer, however it builds easily and is opaque in 3 coats. 




Not For Prophet is a glitter topper with blue, black, white and grey. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and the glitter payoff was good. I used 1 coat over I Can Quit Anytime I Want for the photos below.



Shade

Tools Of The Trade is a gunmetal grey holo. The holo is nice and strong, much stronger than it looks in photos! The formula was good, it was a bit sheer but it built easily and was opaque in 3 coats.




The Pretty & Polished It's Funnier in Enochian Collection is available now at http://www.shopprettyandpolished.com/

Pretty & Polished Fall 2014 (Partial) Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Hope you all having a great weekend so far! Today I have a couple polishes from the Fall 2014 Collection from Pretty & Polished. The collection is 6 polishes in total and it will be released this coming Monday, September 15th.


Firs up is Hoodie Weather, a medium dusty blue with black flecks of shimmer. The shimmer isn't super noticeable but I don't think it's really meant to be. It gives an interesting look to the polish that I feel like I haven't seen a ton of before. The formula was good, it was a bit sheer but easy to build. I used 3 coats for the photos below.




There is S'more to Life is an off-white crelly with caramel and brown glitter. The formula was great, it was easy to apply and more opaque than expected! You do need a good layer of top coat to smooth everything out but I do that with any polish! I used 2 coats for the photos below.




The Pretty & Polished Fall Collection is available now http://www.shopprettyandpolished.com

Different Dimension This Is Halloween- October 2014 A Box Indied


Hi guys! Today I have a quick post for ya, it's been a while since I posted all 7 days of a week! The polish I have for you today is a new Different Dimension polish called This Is Halloween. This polish is going to be part of the October 2014 A Box Indied available from Llarowe. The box for October has a Halloween theme which is always something I'm a fan of, I think I might buy the box depending on what the other polishes look like once I start seeing swatches!

This Is Halloween is a dark slightly dusty purple with a super strong holo. Photos don't do justice to how great the holo is, I mean just look at it in the bottle...wow! The formula was really nice, it was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





A Box Indied is available exclusively at Llarowe.com, you can get a monthly subscription or just box the box on its own without subscribing. For a look at the polishes that will accompany This Is Halloween in the October box along with info about when the box will be available to purchase make sure to follow Llarowe on Facebook.

OPI Holiday 2014 Gwen Stefani Collection: Don't Speak

Hi guys! Today I have Don't Speak from OPI's Holiday 2014 Gwen Stefani Collection for you! This polish is like the special top coats OPI released with both the James Bond Holiday and the Mariah Carey Holiday Collections the last couple of years. Don't Speak is an 18k gold flake top coat. It is packaged in its own collectors box that features a gorgeous photo of Gwen on it and the bottle is a golden color much like The Man With The Golden Gun was.

For those wondering if this is a dupe of The Man With The Golden Gun (TMWTGG) it isn't, of course they are similar but not exact dupes. This one has smaller flakes and it also has a golden shimmer. The overall look is nicer than I ever got with  TMWTGG, it's also much easier to apply. Due to the gold shimmer you get a nicer coverage of gold, you don't have try to fish out the good stuff!

I used 1 coat of Don't Speak over Christmas Gone Plaid for the photos below!



Lighting: Shade



Don’t Speak Pure 18K Gold Top Coat features OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application. This limited edition promotion will be available beginning October 2014 at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com, for  $30.00 ($37.50 CAN) suggested retail.

Cirque The Metropolis Collection: NYFW Swatch & Review


Hi guys! Today I have a brand new polish from Cirque called NYFW to share with you! This polish is the first release in the Metropolis Collection. Each month Cirque will be releasing 1-2 new creme shades each month for the next 4 months for this collection. I was excited about these before even seeing the color for the first month, I was so impressed by the cremes in Cirque's Back To Basicis Set that I couldn't wait to see what else they had up their sleeves in terms of cremes.

NYFW is a bright cobalt blue creme. I wish you guys could have seen my reaction when I opened this polish, I LOVE cobalt blue and this one was seriously stunning in the bottle. On the nail it does not disappoint either, it's just as gorgeous once you apply it! The formula was good, it was a touch patchy on the fist coat but the second coat completely evened it out. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Please excuse the lower quality of these photos compared to my normal photos, my camera couldn't accurately capture the color so I had to use my phone :)




NYFW will be available starting today at http://www.cirquecolors.com/, retail is $13
