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.

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.

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.

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.

Jior Couture Press Package

Standard

I recently recieved a press package from Jior Couture with three polishes for swatch/review. Jior Couture is a new to me brand so I was excited to try them out. I was sent This Is So Tinsel, January 2015 and February 2015. With no further ado, let’s get to it!

image

First up is This Is So Tinsel, a gray crelly with blue, orange, gold and turquoise glitter. This is apart of their 2014 Holiday Collection and was inspired by the short film Prep and Landing.

image

image

image

As you can see, there are plenty of glitters in this one. I used three coats for opacity, but you could totally use one coat as a topper. Formula was awesome with no fishing and dried relatively quickly.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Jior Couture This Is So Tinsel, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Up next is January 2015, their color of the month from January of course. It’s a dark salmon color with gold flakes.

image

image

image

The gold flakes are very subtle on the nail, but still beautiful. I used two coats for opacity. Formula was a breeze to work with and dry time was good.

image

Last, and my favorite out of the three, is February 2015. This is a holo glitter packed pink perfection. The glitters kind of hide but when they show it gives the polish a whole other dimension.

image

image

image

As you can see, this one is an absolutely beauty. I did three coats for opacity, formula was great with good dry time. This is a great addition to any pink lovers collection.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Jior Couture February 2015, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Overall, the polishes I was sent were great. None of them were hard to clean up or had any smudging problems. I’m excited to see more of their upcoming Spring Collection, it looks to die for! All info 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

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! ^_^

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.

I, A.M CustomColor: Jan & Feb Duos Review

Standard

I, A.M CustomColor has two new duos releasing January 30 and I have them both for you today! There will be lotion bars also available and the sets will be $20 for all three items. First up is January’s duo of Prima Assoluta and The Rain.

image

Prima Assoluta is for Ashlie’s favorite ballerina Alessandra Ferri, who is a Prima Ballerina Assoluta,  the highest rank a ballerina can be, only 12 since 1894. Prima Assoluta is a pink jelly with holo glitter and micro rainbow flakies.

image

image

image

This polish is absolutely beautiful, and a great shade of pink. It’s very delicate, but still packs a glitter filled punch. I did three coats, and dry time was excellent with no smudging.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor Prima Assoluta,  I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

The Rain is for her one of her favorite songs, Rain by Calvin Harris. It’s a dark green to blue/green thermal with UCC flakies.

Cold:

Warm:

Transition:

image

And here is both states just to show a side by side comparison.

image

The more you look at The Rain the more beauty you can find in it, which us kind of poetic. It’s beautiful in both states and the UCC flakies go perfectly with it. Three coats were used, with normal dry time and no smudging.

Products used: Qtica Nail Growth, Orly Bonder basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor The Rain, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Now to February’s duo, which consists of Mischa B and You’ll Find A Way Remix.

image

Mischa B is for Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the most inspirational male dancers of the last century. He was always told he was too short and too stout, yet proved everyone wrong. The polish is a vivid red jelly holo.

image

image

image

The macro has LED lighting to show the scattered holo in Mischa B. I used three coats and had the same dry time as the other polishes, and of course no smudging.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor Mischa B, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

You’ll Find A Way Remix is for a remix of the song You’ll Find A Way by Santigold.  The polish is a dark grey crelly with purple shimmer and teal and purple glitters.

image

image

image

image

The last macro is with LED again, to show shimmer and detail. I used three coats with this one as well.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor You’ll Find A Way Remix,  I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Overall all four polishes had excellent dry time,  no smudging and the formula was great and very easy to work with. It’s hard to pick a favorite, since I love all four for different reasons. I’d say you should consider getting all four to see which one is your favorite!  All contact info for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Ruby White Tips: Forever 27 Collection Part 1 Review

Standard

I have a few of the polishes coming out from Ruby White Tips on January 6 9 for review today.  I’m rather excited for the theme of this collection.  The collection is called Forever 27 and is based on all the musicians we’ve tragically lost at the age of 27.  All names are first name only, so you may need a little bit of knowledge to know who each one is. 😉 Today I have Jimi, a beautiful silvery polish with iridescent glitters and shifts of blue and pinky purple, and Kurt a deep rich brown scattered holo.   Up first is Jimi!

image

image

image

image

It was hard to capture all the shifty goodness in the polish and is even more beautiful in person.  It is slightly textured and matte, but if you’d rather the glossy look, it’s still gorgeous!  All these photos are matte, without topcoat. Polish went on smoothly and had excellent dry time.  I left it on for a few days and didn’t have much chipping if any!  I did three coats of the polish.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  Ruby White Tips Jimi, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

I did the macro with LED so you could see some of the scattered holo.  This is an absolutely beautiful brown polish, nice and dark and rich. I could of gotten away with one coat with it being so opaque,  but I did two just to make sure.  Polish went on well, with great dry time, as with all Ruby White Tip polish.

Products used: Duri Rejuvacote,  Orly Bonder basecoat,  Ruby White Tips Kurt, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

This is one of my all time favorite brands with a very awesome theme, you should check out her links below for more information about the upcoming launch, there should be at least four more colors in this collection!  All links are below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^
