Ruby White Tips: Fall Collection

Standard

Today I have two of the three polishes releasing tomorrow (9/29) in the fall set from Ruby White Tips.  The  colors I have for you today are Holy Sheet, a beautiful multichrome, and the polish I named, after my daughter (who’s birthday is today), Tira.  Tira is a beautiful pale shimmery pink.  Up first is Tira!

image

It’s a very neutral toned pink, but I believe would go with almost anything.

image

image

I used two thin coats to reach opacity, and almost could of used one.  It applied well and dried quickly with no smudging. It’s a great consistency also.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder basecoat,  Ruby White Tips Tira, ellagee Glass topcoat.

Up next is Holy Sheet, a beautiful multichrome.  I don’t even know how to describe this one color wise.   With all multichromes it, of course, matters how you hold your nails.   I see purple,  pink, blue, orange and mixes in between.   I took a lot of photos of this one to try and capture all the shifty goodness.

image

You can see some of the shift even in the bottle,  it’s fun just twirling it around watching it change.

image

image

image

I also took some water drop pictures with this one as well.

image

image

I’m really impressed with this polish and how many shifts it has in it.  I also took three macros.

image

image

image

The last one is my favorite, because under the light you can see three shifts at once!  This took three thin coats to reach opacity, and also applied like a dream.  Holy Sheet dried quickly and didn’t smudge at all.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder basecoat, Ruby White Tips Holy Sheet, ellagee Glass topcoat.

Overall, I’m officially in love with Ruby White Tips, and plan on purchasing more in the near future.  I’ve definitely found a new obsession brand.  These, along with one other color, are set to release tomorrow, 9/29.  Keep a look out for them on her page.  Holy Sheet is a LE, so be quick if you want to snag one!  All of the store’s information is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Forever Polished: Dragon Party Review

Standard

I recently was a lucky winner in an Instagram contest and won a gift certificate to Forever Polished and Dragon Party was one of the polishes I picked.  Now, to anyone that knows me, purple is my absolute favorite color, so Dragon Party was a no brainer.  It is a dark squishy jelly with black and iridescent glitters in a bunch of different shapes.

image

Shipping was very fast, and I wasn’t disappointed when I opened the package.  It dries to a matte finish, but looks fantastic with topcoat as well.

image

For all the glitter, it dries rather smooth, which is nice if you chose to wear it like this.

image

image

image

I took pictures in all kinds of light because this polish looks different depending on what type of light it’s under.   You will see below in the macro how it looks a different shade in that light as well. 

image

I did two coats for opacity.  The formula was a little thicker, but, not hard to work with at all.  Again, I’m impressed how smooth it is without topcoat.  Dry time was very fast and I had no smudging issues.  I actually hit my one nail with my orange stick and I just patted it down and it looked like nothing had ever happened.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder, Forever Polished Dragon Party, ellagee Glass topcoat.

All contact information for  Forever Polished below.  She has a lot of very beautiful shades, and polishes that look different than other ones I’ve seen.   As always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Creative Cuticles Nail Polish: Nebula Review

Standard

I’ve been drooling over this polish for a while, and couldn’t wait to get it on my nails once it came in.  It’s Creative Cuticles Nail Polish Nebula.  I’ve seen a lot of galaxy inspired nail polishes, but to me, this is the best looking one, and really invokes the look.

image

This is the soon to be retired bottle, since they have been discontinued by the manufacturer, so if you order Nebula it may come in a different bottle.  Here are a few macro shots of the polish in the bottle.

image

With the holo, and different colors of glitter it really turns into a multi dimensional look through the black jelly base.

image

I’ll be posting a short video on my Instagram this weekend to show how it sparkles as well.  I did my accent finger over the discontinued silver polish, Mr. Fix It, to show how you can either layer it by itself, or top another color with it.

Under LED:

image

This polish had an average dry time, and was thinner than some other jellies I’ve used, but it made it easier to apply, and was very even.  I did three layers by itself, and just one over Mr. Fix It.

Products used: Dainty Digit Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, CCNP Nebula, Duri Revacote,  ellagee Glass topcoat.

Overall, I really enjoyed this product,  and the owner of CCNP, Kayla, is a wonderful person and very easy to talk to if you have any questions or concerns.  All her media outlets will be listed below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Dollish Polish: Look At The Flowers Lizzie Review

Standard

This Wednesday review I did something more simple since I’ve been pretty sick all week, but still wanted to get something up for you guys!  I chose Dollish Polish, Look At The Flowers Lizzie.  This is available as a mini, which is in the last link, or full size here.  I will be linking to the mini through the post, since that’s what I bought. ^_^

WARNING: If you haven’t seen the forth season of The Walking Dead,  this post contains spoilers (totally said in a River Song voice).  So read no further and to see just swatches go to my instagram here.  Remember,  SPOILERS, I warned you!!

This is a colab between Dollish Polish and Accio Lacquer for the first Fandom Collection.  The second collection has been released, and both are definitely worth checking out!

image

The minis are 9 mL, which is nice since most minis are 5 mL, that’s almost twice the amount for about the same price of $5.00.  This polish was inspired by one of the most dramatic, gut wrenching scenes in the fourth season of The Walking Dead, when Lizzie was told to look at the flowers before her crazy little butt was taken out by Carol.  As a huge Walking Dead fan, I had to get it as soon as I saw it, it’s so messed up that a child had to die, but it really shows how cruel that world can be.

There is so much glitter in this polish, with absolutely no fishing at all.  I did let it sit upside down overnight, like I usually do, and gave it a good shake before I used it.  It is so packed with glitter I doubt there would be many fishing issues either way.

image

image

The formula is amazing in this polish, I couldn’t believe how well it applied and how fast it dried.   I used four very thin coats to reach this opacity.  It’s very sheer with one coat, so it could definitely be used as a topper as well.  I also used Glitter Be Gone peel off basecoat from Dainty Digits Polish.  I will be posting a review of that later this week.

image

Products used: Dainty Digit Polish Glitter Be Gone Basecoat,  Dollish Polish Look At The Flowers Lizzie,  Duri Revacote,  ellagee Glass Topcoat.

I really love this polish and can’t wait to try out my other purchases from Dollish Polish.  Definitely check out her main page here and her retired/clearance page on etsy here, which has restocks once a week, and rotating stock.  As always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

Smokey Mountain Lacquers: Twilight Adventure Review

Standard

Today I have Smokey Mountain Lacquers new fall polish Twilight Adventure up for review.  This is my first polish from her and I was excited to try it.

image

Twilight Adventure is an ultra chrome that shifts between purple, blue, and green.  It was hard to capture all the beautiful shifts in the polish.  I was unable to get a sun picture since the outdoors weren’t cooperating, but if I catch it when I’m outside I will post it to my Instagram.   Here are a few shots of it at different angles.

image

image

image

I did three thin layers of the polish and I believe it would of looked a bit better with four.  Here is a macro with LED light to show more shift.

image

You can definitely see the blue more in this photo.  Dry time did take a smidge longer, but it wasn’t horrible.  The polish wasn’t thick at all and applied well.  Overall I really liked this polish and plan on purchasing more.

Products used: Duri Revacote,  Orly Bonder,  Smokey Mountain Lacquers’ Twilight Adventure,  ellagee Glass Topcoat.

ellagee: Trenzalore Holo and Ice Bucket Glitter Review

Standard

I decided to pull out some of my ellagee untrieds for today’s post.   I chose Trenzalore, a subdued blue-gray scattered holo and a LE Ice Bucket,  a glitter topper she released to raise money for ALS.  I decided to put Vashta Nerada on my accent nail to show off Ice Bucket on a darker polish.  I also used Vashta Nerada on my previous Sons of Anarchy mani and reviewed it there.

image

From L to R: Trenzalore, Ice Bucket, Vashta Nerada

I decided to do some macros of Ice Bucket to show of all the little details as well

image

image

I’m honestly kind of sad that this was a LE, because it’s just so beautiful!  Now for some shots of the mani!

image

I did it with Ice Bucket as a gradient on Trenzalore and covered the whole accent nail with it over Vashta Nerada.

I did macros of both colors to show detail also.  First up is Trenzalore.

As always with ellagee’s polish, everything applied evenly and dried quickly.  I did a layer Duri Revacote, then a layer of Orly Bonder,  two coats of Trenzalore or Vashta Nerada,  a dabbed coat of Ice Bucket and ellagee’s topcoat Glass to finish it off.

I didn’t have any fishing issues, and the glitter was abundant every time.  If you’re an indie/artisan fan and haven’t checked out ellagee I highly recommend it!  As always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

I,A.M…CustomColor: Tak: Hideous New Girl (Invader Zim Part 2 Release)

Standard

Today I have something special for you guys. This is Tak: Hideous New Girl, a brand new polish from I,A.M…CustomColor This 5 piece collection is set to release later this month. This is going to be a picture heavy post, but I wanted to show the polish in all of its glory!

image

Don’t you just love her new labels! They were created by Lou It Yourself.

image

Yay, light box! I absolutely love this polish. It’s a beautiful purple holo, and it sparkles like crazy, just like my previous review.

image

I used a color from her Invader Zim Part 1 release for the nail art. The color is Idiot Dog Brain and is currently on sale for $8 with free shipping. It is being discontinued, so pick one up while you can!

The polish applied well and wasn’t to thick or to thin. I used a layer of Duri Revacote, then a layer of Orly Bonder, and did three layers of Tak: Hideous New Girl. I could of gotten away with two layers to reach opacity, but decided on three to be extra careful. I used I,A.M…CustomColor’s topcoat, Diamond Pro and needed just one coat for shiny coverage. I topped it all off with her cuticle oil in the glorious scent of Monkey Farts. This is the best smelling cuticle oil I’ve ever used, and worked well on my beaten up cuticles.

Overall, I love the polish, and didn’t have any issues with it. Dry time was a little longer because I did three layers, but nothing ridiculous.

If you haven’t tried I,A.M…CustomColor, I would highly suggest it. To keep up to date with all her new releases and sales, please visit all her outlets below. As always, thanks for reading! ^_^
