Living Dead Lacquer: Ultron Trio

Standard

These beauties will be releasing tomorrow, 4/24/15. Living Dead Lacquer is a newer indie brand with great quality polish, plus the owner, Hilarie, is super nice as well and a nice owner is always awesome to see!  All three polishes dried quickly with no smudging. Up first I have Mark XLIII, inspired by Iron Man.

As you can see Mark XLIII is a beautiful shimmery red with small gold hexes. I used three coats, but opacity could be reached at two to three coats, depending on how think you put it on.

This beauty is No Strings On Me, inspired by Ultron himself. It’s a shimmery silver with small red and black hex glitters. Opacity can be reached in two to three coats, I did three here.

This is Super Soldier, inspired by Captain America. This polish can look almost black on your nail but has this wonderful flash of navy when you move your fingers around. It’s very beautiful in person, and probably my favorite of the set. It has small red and silver glitters throughout as well too. Opacity in two to three coats, I did three here.

Liquid Sky Lacquer: Release Preview

Standard

Today I have the beautiful new set from Liquid Sky Lacquer, What Happens In Vegas Ends Up On Instagram and the single release Yasss! They are releasing this Saturday, April 18 at 2 pm est. All polishes were a dream to apply and opaque in 2-3 coats. All but Yasss! dried incredibly fast, but it was more of a normal dry time than slow.

First up is the strip, a black jelly with blue glitter.

Regal Ween Lacquer: Middle Earth Part 1

Standard

Today I have the recently released Middle Earth Part 1 set from Regal Ween Lacquer. This is a five part set that is inspired by different locations from the Lord of the Rings world. I did stamping inspired by each theme of the polish too! Up first is Minas Tirith.

image

Minas Tirith is a metallic white inspired by the capitol city of Gondor of the same name. It has a subtle shift of color blue, purple, gold  or cyan with some scattered holo in the mix.

image

image

image

image

I did brickwork and a castle for the great fort of Minas Tirith. This polish is beautiful. The formula was great, two to three coats for opacity. Dry time was also in par with her other polishes.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Regal Ween Lacquer Minas Tirith, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat. Zoya Ling used for stamping with Moyou London Fairytale Plate 02 and Hehe plate 026.

image

Rohan is inspired by the golden grasses of the fields of this city. It is a golden brown creme with gold holo dust. This also can used for stamping, which you will see later.

image

image

image

image

This beautiful, unique, polish is great, two coats for opacity, great formula and dry time. Clean up was easy as well.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Regal Ween Lacquer Rohan, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat. Ruby White Tips Kurt used for stamping with Moyou London Fairytale Plate 02 and BM-615.

image

This is The Shire, a vibrant green inspired by Frodo’s home. A shimmering green that can flash gold or purple.

image

image

image

image

I used Rohan for stamping here. I wanted a subtle tree look, but not to overpower the green and it was perfect for the job. It was opaque in two coats, and I feel this one is a stunner. Dry time was great, same with the formula.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Regal Ween Lacquer The Shire, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat. Rohan used for stamping with Moyou London Mother Nature Plate 01.

image

This is Mount Doom, inspired by the burning fires of the mountain and the cold metal armor of Sauron’s army. It is a blacked base with red and purple tones and a chameleon shift and scattered holo.

image

image

image

image

This has a lot of depth to it, it like a little mystery in a bottle. I really love this one a lot. Opaque in two coats and great formula and dry time with no smudging.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Regal Ween Lacquer Mount Doom, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat. Sinful Colors Gold Medal used for stamping with Moyou London Geek 05.

image

Rivendell is inspired by the beauty of the elven city it is named after. It has green, mint, gold, holo white, iridescent and brown glitters, as well as multicolored illusion flakes in a clear base. It can be used as a topper or layered to opacity.

image

image

image

I did one to two coats on each color from the collection. Regal Ween Lacquer has some of the best glitter toppers on the market, they are packed and you don’t have to fish for anything. Formula is great, fast dry time and no smudging.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Regal Ween Lacquer Rivendell, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

It’s no secret that Regal Ween Lacquer is one of my favorite brands, and they didn’t disappoint with this new collection. Even though I only stamped with one of the colors, I’m sure all of them will stamp. I’ve used some of her other colors from previous collections for stamping so it’s safe to say any non glitter polish will stamp from them.

Liquid Sky Lacquer

Standard

I have seven polishes that I was sent for review by Liquid Sky Lacquer, a new to me brand. Most of these have been out, but I also have the brand new limited edition, Pinch Proof, a St Paddy’s Day polish. This is a very picture heavy post with all the polishes, but definitely worth it.

image

Pinch Proof is a beautiful green polish with extreme holo and multiple sized glitters.

image

image

image

A very beautiful polish, that has an amazing formula and excellent dry time. Definitely a perfect St Paddy’s polish, I did three coats for opacity.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Pinch Proof, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Black Magic Leprechaun is a black jelly with green shimmer and large clover glitters.

image

image

image

The clovers weren’t as hard as some other polishes I’ve used with large glitters, but letting the polish sit upside down before application is definitely helpful. The polish felt a bit thicker on this one, but nothing bad. Dry time was pretty good, I did 3-4 coats on each nail.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Black Magic Leprechaun, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Wink ^.~ is an extreme bluish green holo and very beautiful.

image

image

image

This polish is absolutely gorgeous. It has a slight shift to it among the holo. Formula was great, excellent dry time and opaque in three coats.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Wink ^.~, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Black Opal is another extreme holo. This one is black with a strong purple shift, which was hard to capture on camera. This one definitely has more dimensions in person.

image

image

image

The dry time was excellent, formula was great and I did three coats for opacity. I probably could of left it at two, but I wanted to be extra safe.

Products used: Qtica Nail Growth, Orly Bonder basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Black Opal, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

King’s Cake is another limited edition. This one is a deep purple jelly with green, gold and purple holographic glitters of different shapes throughout.

image

image

image

This one has a lot of glitter in it, which made the formula feel thicker. It was almost like working with a glitterbomb. Dry time was really good, and I did three coats for opacity. This one would be great used as a topper to, I used it on its own.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer King’s Cake, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Atlantis is a deep blue jelly with neon yellow, pink, orange and purple glitters and a smidge of holo dust.

image

image

image

I love the uniqueness of this polish. It really is different than anything I’ve seen. As with all the others, dry time was good, great formula, and three coats for opacity.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Atlantis, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Last, but definitely not least, is Bird Of Paradise, a multichrome colorshift polish. It has blue, copper, orange, purple and a few other colors in it.

image

image

image

image

I tried to capture the shifty nature of the polish, and really like how it came out. Great formula and dry time with three coats for opacity.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Liquid Sky Lacquer Bird Of Paradise, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

I love all of her polishes overall, and they would be a welcomed addition to anyone’s collection. I also love her labels, they made it super easy for swatching and naming all the pictures. All information for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

My Kinda Color: New Sparkly Collection

Standard

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably seen my posts about how my whole family got super sick. We’re on the mend, and I figured I’d get a post done! Today I have the new Sparkly Collection from My Kinda Color, one of which was named after me! They are all glitter bombs that have a colored glitter and holo glitter. They’re all magnificent as well. On to the swatches!

image

This is Jessica, a blue and holo glitter bomb. It can be used as a topper or opaque at three coats.

image

image

image

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, My Kinda Color Jessica, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

This is Sassy, a purple and holo glitter bomb, opacity at three coats.

image

image

image

As you can see, Sassy has a larger glitter than Jessica, so it changes the way the color lays, just a little bit.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, My Kinda Color Sassy, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

This is Flirty, a pink/fuchsia and holo glitter bomb, opacity in three coats.

image

image

image

Flirty has the largest glitter out of the bunch, but I really liked how they weren’t all the same.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, My Kinda Color Flirty, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Last, but not least, this is Morgan, the one named after me! Green is one of my favorite colors, so I was honored when Patty asked if she could use my name for it.

image

image

image

Morgan has a finer glitter just like Jessica, but with both you can see the holo along with the colors.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, My Kinda Color Morgan, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

I loved all of the colors and polishes in this collection. They had awesome dry times and no smudging at all. If you haven’t checked this brand out yet, you really should. All her polishes are only $5 with very reasonable shipping. All info for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Chick Pick Polish: Sterling Silver Topper Review

Standard

Kari over at Chick Pick Polish was kind enough to gift me a polish of my choice because of being nice on my reposts for her giveaway on Instagram. I was surprised, since I do this with any of the giveaways I enter, but I definitely appreciated the kindness. I ended up picking her Sterling Silver Topper since it caught my eye.

image

It’s a beautiful topper with sterling silver flakies, I haven’t seen any other toppers like this either. She also has it available in gold.

image

image

image

It has plenty of flakies in it and I got this type of coverage in one go. I felt like I had little tiny mirror on my nails and couldn’t stop staring at them. Dry time was excellent, with no smudging at all. I can’t wait to try some of her regular polish now that I’ve used this. I have a feeling this is going to be a staple product for me.

Chirality: Distant Lands Review

Standard

It’s been a while since I did a polish from Chirality, which is a shame because it is one of my favorite indies. I decided to do another one from the mc Chris For The Win collection, Distant Lands to be specific. This polish is a greenish teal crelly with black, purple and holographic glitters.

image

As you can see, it’s beautiful in the bottle, and not a lot of sinking of the large glitters either.

image

image

image

Absolutely no fishing with this polish, which was a big surprise with those big circle glitters. As you can see there are all kinds of different sizes and colors of glitter in there. The dry time was excellent, and the formula is good, but as with most polishes with large glitters you need a few coats of top coat to smooth it out. I did two coats of Distant Lands to reach opacity.
