OPI Spring 2016 New Orleans Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys. Apologies for the lack of posts this week, my Grandma has been in the hospital since Sunday. She's been really sick and is still very sick but getting a little better every day. Most likely posts will still be very sporadic until she's doing better and I'm not staying with her at the hospital for 12+ hours every day.  I haven't have time or energy to edit photos etc. That's also why there isn't a First Impression Friday today, I have posts lined up for it I just haven't had time to edit the photos yet, hopefully the series will be back next week.

Today I have the OPI New Orleans Collection for Spring 2016 to share with you. This is a 12 piece collection of mostly cremes, but there are a few shimmers in there for good measure. Check out the swatches after the jump.

First Impression Friday: Ever After Polish

Happy Friday! Today for First Impression Friday I'm going to be talking about Ever After Polish! I've heard a lot of great things about this brand on blogs I follow and have had them on my need to buy from list for a little while now. I was finally pushed over the edge when I saw a photo of a new polish posted in a Facebook group and just had to have it! I ended up buying 3 polishes, which was hard because there are seriously so many gorgeous polishes...narrowing down the list was difficult (and I kinda regret not buying all of them haha)

Ever After Polish make a variety of products aside from polish. They have everything from cuticle products to face masks, lip masks and bubble bath. Ever After also offers a monthly box that you can either buy as a one off box or you can subscribe to it. In addition to all of that Ever After also does custom polishes and all of the ones I've seen are gorgeous, the polish that actually made me order started out as a custom then was added as a regular polish.

I placed my order on 1/15/16 during a presale and received everything on 1/28/16. I was expecting a longer turn around time because of the presale so it was a nice surprise to get them a little earlier than I thought I would. Everything came packaged really nicely, the polishes were individually bubble wrapped then put into a bag that was sealed shut with washi tape. There was also a copy of my order, a thank you card, a piece of candy and a sample of the Ever After Cuticle Crelly included in the package. Everything arrived in a bubble mailer. I did have a minor customer service issue that will be mentioned later in the post (luckily a good one this time)! Check out everything I got after the jump!

First Impression Friday: DazzleGlaze

Happy Friday! Today for First Impression Friday I have some Dazzleglaze polishes to share with you! I can't remember where I found out about this brand, it was either from a reader comment or when there was a post in a Facebook group about indies doing New Years sales. Either way I ended up picking up a couple polishes from them because they were having an awesome sale at the time and I couldn't pass it up.

Dazzleglaze sells a whole assortment of things from nail polish to cuticle oil and even super sparkly phone cases that they hand make.  I ordered on 1/2/16 and received my polishes on 1/11/16. Their turn around time was listed as a week and everything shipped 5 days after my order. I was actually expecting it to be a little longer since I ordered during a sale so that was a nice surprise! The polishes arrived in a little box and each was bubble wrapped, the box was also filled with packing peanuts so everything was extra secure!

Check out the polishes I got after the jump!

First Impression Friday: Rainbow Honey

Happy Friday! Today for First Impression Friday I have some Rainbow Honey goodies to share with you. Rainbow Honey has been on my radar for a long time, I'm actually kind of surprised I hadn't already tried them. They offer a ton of items in their shop, everything from nail polish to nail care and bath & body products. I couldn't decide what to buy so I ended up buying their January Mystery Bag.

The Rainbow Honey Mystery Bags come in a few different options, you can get the full sized version with just nails or just body stuff. You can also get a mini sized version or a bag that has a little of everything. I ended up getting the full sized version of the bag with a little of everything in it. Things like this are a great way to try out a brand. I believe they offer these as a one time purchase or you can subscribe and get them each month.

I placed my order on 1/11/16 and my packaged arrived to me on 1/19/16. While I did get my package pretty quickly it was outside of their stated turn around time. They listed 24-48 hours to ship and mine shipped out 5 days after I placed my order. Its not really a big deal to me since I still got the package quickly but its something to be aware of if you're in a time crunch or something of that nature. I did end up having customer service issues with Rainbow Honey not associated with the shipping, those will be mentioned towards the end of the post. The mystery bag was mailed in a bubble mailer and then all the actual products were in a cloth bag with the Rainbow Honey logo stamped on it. It was a really nice touch, in my opinion. Inside the cloth bag the everything was inside of bubble wrap bag and there was a sheet that detailed everything included in the bag. Check out everything in my mystery bag after the jump!

Serum No. 5 February 2016 Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was meh, Generation Beauty turned out to be kind of a bust...really unorganized and disappointing. I did meet some nice bloggers in line though so that was nice! Today I have February 2016 from Serum No. 5 to share with you. This polish launches today and is only available for the month of February.

February 2016 is a peachy orange creme base with gold glitter. The golden glitter is a little hard to see in photos but its much more noticeable in real life. This glows a vivid yellow in the dark. This is one of the more intense glows I've seen in a little while, it was one that you step into the dark and go oh wow when your nails light up. The formula was good, it was a touch thick but in a way that made it easy to apply, it was also on the sheer side but it built easily. I used 3 coats plus top coat for the photos below.

Serum No. 5 February 2016 is available 2/1/16-2/19/16 at SerumNo5.com, it retails for $13.
