First Impression Friday: Cinema Swatch Lacquers

Happy Friday! Welcome back to First Impression Friday, I think what I've missed most about blogging after being away for a little bit was this series! Today I am talking about Cinema Swatch Lacquers, this brand came on my radar a few months ago when they released an X-Files themed collection. I kept going and looking at them but didn't up pulling the trigger on them another for a couple months, during a life is stressful shopping spree.

Cinema Swatch Lacquers makes an assortment of products other than polish including lip balm, a few items for Men, cuticle balm and a scented oil you can add to acetone to make it smell better. The ordering experience was good, their website is easy to navigate and the turn around time for shipping was good. The listed turn around time was 5-7 days and mine was much faster, I ordered on 3/3/16 and received everything on 3/8/16. I bought 2 polishes and one of the remover additives, everything arrived in a little box with shredded paper as packing material. The polishes were individually wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a branded sticker which was a nice touch. The package also included a business card, copy of my invoice and a piece of candy.

Check out everything I got after the jump!

Trust Fund Beauty I'm Kind of a Big Deal Swatch & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a new to me brand to share with you called Trust Fund Beauty. I remember hearing about this brand a while back but found them to be on the too rich for my blood end of the affordable nail polish spectrum so I had never tried anything out. Luckily I got this in an Ipsy bag a couple months back so procrastination and cheapness worked out in my favor for once haha! Trust Fund Beauty makes both nail polish and lipstick. You can buy them individually and it looks like they also offer a monthly subscription of their own.

The polish I got in my Ipsy bag is called I'm Kind of a Big Deal and its a medium pink creme. Its a nice tone of pink, not too bright but not muted either and I like how it looks with my skin tone. The formula was really nice, it was a good consistency and applied smoothly with nice opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Overall I like the polish but not enough to justify the $15 price tag, I actually don't see this polish on their website so I'm not sure if they were just getting rid of stock through Ipsy or if it has a different name on their site. Trust Fund Beauty is available at http://trustfundbeauty.com/

Nine Zero April 2016 Swatch & Review

Hi guys! I'm back, hopefully for good this time! Degen is doing really well, its been exactly a month since he hurt himself. He had his followup appointment at his neurologist last week and was given a clean bill of health, the vet said he's healing nicely and walking perfectly! I was waiting to get back to blogging until I was sure he was doing fine, I really haven't been able to think about anything else for the last couple of weeks...plus its been full time having to sit with him so he doesn't jump off something and hurt himself again, so I really had no "me" time to do nail polish stuff. It'll still be a couple months before he can go back to being a dog but he's at least allowed to walk around now. He was on confinement until his check up so he wasn't allowed to walk around, it was a nightmare because all he wanted to do was run around and be crazy once he started feeling better.

Now that life is sort of back to whatever normal is now I feel like I can get my brain back into blogging. Today I have April 2016 from Nine Zero Lacquer to share with you! Jess recently announced that these monthly polishes will no longer only be available during their specific month so if you've missed any (or just used up your polish budget for the month already) you don't have to worry about it anymore!

April 2016 is a light pink holo with a bit of silver holo glitter in the mix to make it extra sparkly. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and had good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 

Nine Zero Lacquer is available at http://www.ninezerolacquer.com/, April 2016 retails for $11
