Shimmer Jasmine

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Welcome to Shimmer Week!! I am super excited to have this whole week full of Shimmer swatches and reviews. I have been a long time fan of Shimmer polishes, Cindy has mastered the formula on these glitter packed polishes. My first shimmer was actually a custom order, you can see my post on Shimmer: Lisa here.

To start this Shimmer week off I have the lovely Jasmine. Jasmine can be described as an aquamarine, light blue and green glitter polish


Shimmer: Jasmine
 One coat shown over OPI: Amazon.. Amazoff
I then added a simple V stamp design.


Mundo 24
Cheeky Jumbo 10

As with all Shimmer polishes application was a breeze.  I have found myself falling for teal/turquoise colors lately and Jasmine is no exception. Below are links where you can find Shimmer polishes.

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection, Review

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

I have the most gorgeous polishes to review for you today. Yes you guessed right it is the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection! I am first going to start out saying my original thoughts on this collection are ALL completely wrong. First off I thought, o boy chunky glitter's this is going to be a pain to apply. I then also thought wow these are going to be extremely rough and get caught on everything. Also, as with with all glitters I was not excited about the removal process. I am happy to say that none of that was true with these polishes! Check the preview out below and click over the jump for my full review with swatches and a video of these polishes!

Zoya Naturel Collection, Review

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Once again Zoya has come out with an amazing collection. This time it is in the theme of "natural" colors, which are perfect for that day you just want to blend in. I happen to enjoy this collection a lot, although the nude colors are just the norm, I like the more tinted pinky purples. Below is a preview to my swatches, click over the jump for full post!

Miss Professional Nail, Sation Nail Polish, Review, Part 3

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Happy Friday lovelies. I have my last two polish reviews of Sation polish to share today. If you haven't check out the other two reviews you can find it here and here.


Happy Wine-y People, creme deep plum.
 

 I used two coats with no top coat. I had difficulties with this color, it was extremely thick and gloppy which made it hard to apply.
 

Need a Spumani, a cremey sheer grey/green.


Shown is three coats with no top coat. I used three coats since it was sheer polish but built up well, this didn't affect dry time.


Since Happy Wine-y People was so thick I thought it would be perfect for stamping with.


What isn't more ghoulish than drips? I used BM-405 for the stamping.


I think Sation is a great brand of polish, from reviewing just these six I can tell they know what they are doing.  Have a wonderful weekend!

 Sation is a very affordable brand with a price tag of $5. To view all of the colors Sation has to offer check out each collection here.

Miss Professional Nail, Sation Nail Polish, Review, Part 2

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Good Morning, I have my second part of my Sation polish review today. I also created some candy corn nail art with today's polish. If you missed the the first part of my sation review you can view it here.


Strumming My Nails- Creme White Polish


Shown is two coats with no top coat, this polish was perfect formula.




Money Badger- Orange, yellow, and light green multi shape glitter.


One coat over Strumming my Nails, applied easily and all the glitters laid flat.


Of course this glitter looks exactly like candy corn! I might have to use this glitter for my halloween mani :D


These two colors are great just like yesterdays polishes. Strumming my Nails is defiantly going to be my go to for white base polish.

 Sation is a very affordable brand with a price tag of $5. To view all of the colors Sation has to offer check out each collection here.

Miss Professional Nail, Sation Nail Polish, Review, Part 1

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Good Morning. For today I have a review of a few polishes from Miss Professional Nail of their signature polish brand, Sation. I received 6 gorgeous shades and have some Halloween nail art to share also. Since I have so many swatches I decided to split this review up in three parts. Below is a bottle shot to preview the colors that will be reviewed.


 

Plenty of Frogs- Creme green with silver shimmer


Shown is three coats with no top coat. I used three coats since it was sheer polish but built up well, this didn't affect dry time.
 



Ego-Friendly- Green, Black, Lime Green, muliti shape glitter


One Coat over Plenty of Frogs. Applied easily and all glitters laid flat.


When I saw this glitter I thought of Frankenstein and knew I had to add an accent nail. Perfect for Halloween!

I am impressed with these two colors, and have high hopes for the rest.

Born Pretty Store: Sparkle Yogurt Milky Glitter Polish, Review

 photo button_zpsc89bd61d.png

Happy Monday Lovelies, I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Mine was laid back with lots of sun bathing :D Today I have a polish set from the Born Pretty Store to review for you. I really like polishes that give you the look of a jelly sandwich, and these are adorable pastels with that finish!


First up is my mani with these four beauties. Below are some macros with bottle shots! These don't have names and they were all the same for application, which I will review at the end of this post.




I really love these four colors together and the finish is gorgeous. My favorite would have to be the pinky/peach one.

 

Application was great and even having smaller brushes didn't cause any difficulties. Each swatch is with two coats and top coat. I am very happy with these polishes and can see them being fun for spring.

These polishes are 7.99 and can purchased here. The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!
