OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection Swatches

Hi guys!  Guess what's going on today? We're getting the new flooring in our kitchen and living room, woohoo!  So excited for this, we're getting laminate wood flooring, it's going to be such a nice change from the hideous linoleum that was previously in the kitchen and the fuggo carpet in the living room. Pretty sure Degen is going to be the biggest fan of it, it's going to be like a whole new world for him when he's running around after toys haha!

Today I have the Muppets Most Wanted Collection from OPI to share with you. This collection serves as OPI's Soft Shades Collection for 2014 and it's coming out in conjunction with the Muppets Most Wanted movie that comes out this Friday! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Seche Spring 2014 Perfectly Poised Collection Swatches

Happy Friday! Anyone doing anything fun this weekend? The kitchen and living room are getting painted this weekend so I'm hoping once that's done the rest of the kitchen remodel will go by quickly. Let me just tell you, I am very tired of making everything in a microwave sitting on a concrete floor. Countertops and actual appliances will be a welcome sight once they are installed lol!

Today I have the Perfectly Poised Collection for Spring 2014 from Seche to share with you. This collection is pretty much Spring perfection with soft pastels, a nice nude polish and a good sunny yellow. Check out all the swatches after the jump!

China Glaze Spring 2014 City Flourish Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Today I have China Glaze's Spring 2014 City Flourish Collection to share with you. I haven't seen much about them, I didn't even know I could get them yet until I stumbled upon the display when I went to buy a new bottle of top coat at my local beauty supply a couple weeks back. This collection is 10 creme shades and 2 subtle shimmers. There's a nice mix of pastels and almost neon shades so a few of these could easily carry into Summer! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

OPI Spring/Summer 2014 Brazil Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend, mine was good! I went and saw Juliet Simms live, if you watched The Voice a few seasons ago you probably know her from there. I know of her from a band she used to be in called Automatic Loveletter. It was a great time, she's pretty incredible live! Today I have OPI's Brazil Collection to share with you! This is the Spring/Summer Collection for this year, in addition to the 12 polishes in this post there is also a mini set with 4 liquid sand polishes I've be posting very soon! This part of the collection is made up most of cremes, I know that doesn't excite everyone but it does excite me! I always forget how much I love a good creme until it's been a while since I've had new ones to play with!

If there are any comparisons you'd like to see for this collection please leave them in the comments!

Saturday Spam: Formula X Pt. II

Happy weekend! Today I have a big bunch of Formula X Spam for you! Since my last Formula X post I have continued to go nuts and buy ALL THE THINGS so I have ohhh like 25 polishes to share with you. Most of these are from their Twenty Two set so I guess that only counts as one purchase...right? I had my eye on the Twenty Two set since these first showed up online, originally I decided against it because I kind of loathe mini's but then I got a mini as a 100 point perk and they are decent so that enabled me to buy the set during the Friends & Family sale. I think the set is actually kind of a great deal, you get so many polishes, it's the perfect way to try out a lot of the brand and there are a ton of different finishes and shades in the set. I also have a couple more full size polishes that I got during the VIB sale a couple weeks ago.

Check out all the photos after the jump, this post is on the picture heavy side so load time might be a little bit slower than normal.

Zoya PixieDust Collection Swatches!

Hi guys! Today I have swatches of Zoya's PixieDust collection to share with you! We've seen our fair share of texture so far this year and I'm still loving them. The PixieDust polishes are a bit different than the other texture's I've seen/tried. Just for the sake of comparison OPI's Liquid Sand is much more of a chunky glitter type of texture. The other brands (China Glaze, Milani, Nails Inc, Barry M) all seem to be doing creme type of finishes that don't have any kind of glitter or sparkle in them. The PixieDust polishes are glitter but the glitter is much finer than what OPI is doing, it looks sort of like you sprinkled colored sugar onto your nails.

I have to say that out of what I have tried and seen, PixieDust is my favorite of the texture polishes that have been released so far.  I just love how fine the glitter is and variety of colors Zoya has given us so far (I say so far because I really hope they do more, I'm dying for these in bright summery colors!). Also just some random bit of info because it excited me, the bottle caps of these are matte! If you have any of the Matte Velvet polishes from Zoya they are the same caps that those had. I have a weird love for those caps and I'm sure I'm not the only one so I thought it was worth mentioning!

Zoya Spring 2013 Lovely Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Today I have Zoya's Spring 2013 Collection called the Lovely Collection to share with you!

I'm really excited to finally post this collection, I love the color palette Zoya went with for this Spring. These remind me so much of Easter, specifically of that grass that you put in Easter baskets!

Nicole by OPI has teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox for this 14 polish collection that is inspired by the personalities from the show Modern Family.

Sephora X Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have some polishes from the brand new Sephora X line of polish to share with you. Sephora just recently released this line, it includes a ton of gorgeous shades...everything from indie like glitters to duochromes to neons and sheers. There is literally something for anyone and everyone in this new line. From what I understand it's very limited in actual stores (no idea if that will be changing, sorry) but they are available online, I would suggest checking out the Sephora X page on Sephora's website here and typing in your zip code to see if any store near you has these before you run out looking for them. Just to put it into perspective I live relatively close to 3 regular Sephora stores and 1 Sephora inside JC Penny, out of those 4 stores only 1 actually has them...I'm glad I checked online before going out looking for these because the one that had them would've been last on my list to look at!

The Sephora X line is split up into a bunch of different categories including The Illusionists, The Cosmics, The Sparklers, The Prismatics, The New Neutrals, The Pearlescents, The Electrics, The New Classics, The Minimalists, The Industrialists and The Under and The Cover. The display is set up so they are all in their little groups, you can see a photo of it that I posted on instagram here. As soon as I saw it I was like a kid in a candy store, I kid you not I stood at that display ohhhing and aahing over everything for about 20 minutes before I finally decided on the 6 I bought. I was pretty much sold on these the second I saw the display, job well done Sephora...I gotta say. They know how to make us lacquerheads lose our minds.

Anyway enough rambling...yes? Check out all my swatches and thoughts after the jump!

Seche Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! Did anyone watch the Emmy's last night? I didn't but I did watch the pre-show on E! How awesome was the mani-cam? I was dying, what a great idea! Today I have 6 polishes from Seche to share with you guys. Seche (as in Seche Vite!) is launching their nail lacquer collection coming up in October at Ulta, their lacquers are meant to be fast drying one coat polishes! These are Big 3 Free, a few people asked about that when I posted a photo of these on my instagram!

The core range for Seche will consist of 33 colors, you can see bottle/display photos of more of the colors over on Polarbelle from Cosmoprof North America. To see swatches of the 6 I have click the read more button below!

Essie Fall 2012 Stylenomics Collection Swatches

Hi guys! Today I have Essie's Fall 2012 Stylenomics Collection to share with you! I saw this a couple weeks ago at Target and completely passed on it but then I saw it again at my local supply store and decided to pick it up...self control be dammed! The Stylenomics Collection is 6 creme polishes, I love basic cremes so I think that's why I ended up getting suckered into buying these haha!

Saturday Spam: Essie

Happy Weekend! Today I have a helping of Essie spam for ya! Essie is a brand that I didn't have any interest in until a couple years ago so I don't have a ton of them. For the longest time they made the most boring polishes, all pinks and whites...very bridal and work appropriate. It wasn't until they released the Summer 2010 collection with Pretty Edgy in it that I even looked twice at their displays. Since then I've become a big old fan of their polish, mostly new polishes but I do have some older gems in my stash that are also in this post!

OPI Fall 2012 Germany Collection Swatches!

Hi guys! Today I have OPI's Fall 2012 Germany Collection to show you! Germany is one of the places on my bucket list to visit so I was all woohoo when OPI announced this collection! Waaaaay back in the stone age when my Dad was a kid he lived in Germany, my Grandpa was in the Air Force and stationed there for a while. He won't tell me about most of the time he spent there but sometimes I manage to get a good story out of my Aunt about what a terror my Dad was back then (it makes me happy I'm an only child haha)! Then when my Dad got a little older and he joined the Air Force himself he ended up stationed there too, too bad that was pre-Jen :(

Anyway, I love when OPI does collections themed after places...mostly because the names as especially funny with these kinds of collections. Another thing on my bucket list: sit in whatever kind of meeting OPI has when they name collections, I think that would be so fun!

Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection Swatches!

Hi guys! Today I am super excited to share these 4 polishes with you, it's the Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection! A little while back I saw a swatch of Sweets Way and fell in love. I somehow talked myself into only getting 1 of the 4 polishes so I waited until they were actually in store at Sephora and not just online so I could decide which to get. When my local store got them in last week I went in and bought them all, self control be dammed (I mean really, you guys know me who was I kidding about only getting 1 of them LOL). The Sprinkles Collection is 4 milky glitters, they are perfection and I'm glad I justified needing all 4 to myself. I have to tell you guys, I think Nails Inc might be my favorite new to me brand of 2012. They keep churning out awesome polishes, between these and Baker Street I am kind of blown away by how much I am loving Nails Inc. I'm so glad they finally came over the US!

Barry M Swatches!

TGIF! Can you guys believe it's already June...this year is flying by like whoa! I miss when I was a kid and time seemed like it took forever to pass, now I feel like I can't catch my breath! Today I have swatches of 4 new Barry M polishes to show you guys! I have a couple other Barry M polishes that I got a long time ago in swaps and I've always wished I could get my hands on more. I never bought them online before because you could only order direct from Barry M and it can get pricey and take forever for shipping. Recently, Harlow & Co started carrying Barry M so not only are they easier to get but it's also a lot quicker shipping wise (for me anyway!)

Borghese Almondine

TGIF! Today I have an awesome neutral polish to show you guys, this was sent to me by my love Kirsten from Glitta Gloves. She sent me pretty much the most awesome package ever a little bit ago and this was one of the pretty polishes she included. I've had my eye on Almondine for a while, ever since Kirsten posted it and said it was her favorite nude.

I am SO glad Kirsten included this beauty for me, I went searching for it after she posted it and I guess Borghese is gone forever or something because all the Rite Aid stores near me cleared out all the stock and made their displays into other things :(

Almondine is a gorgeous beige nude with black shimmer/glitter/flecks (I don't really know what to call it haha) There is also a very subtle pink shimmer in here. It reminds me a bit of Cult Nails Cruisin Nude ...if Cruisin Nude had awesome black whatevers in it. The formula was nice, a little sheer at first but it built up so nicely! I used 3 coats for the photos below.
