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.

Fangirl Polish: Everything is Awesome! Collection

Standard

Today I have the entire Everything is Awesome! Collection from Fangirl Polish. Sorry I haven’t been posting as much, life got kind of busy! Anywho, this beautiful collection was inspired by The Lego Movie! Her son even helped her work on it, which I find adorable and, well, awesome. This is a six part set, so let’s get to it.

image

First up is Face of Yellow, a bright fun yellow jelly. Inspiration is obviously the iconic lego faces.

image

This polish is super squishy, but reaches opaque easily. This is three coats for this coverage. This polish is perfect for any jelly sandwiches you can come up with.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Fangirl Polish Face of Yellow, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Up next is Wooooooooo! a beautiful white with subtle shimmer that glows in the dark.

image

image

Look ma, my first gitd shot!  This glows much brighter in person, my camera wasn’t having an easy time picking it up. It was once again three thin coats for opacity and dry time was excellent, as it is with all her polishes.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Fangirl Polish Wooooooooo!, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

Up next is this beautiful blue, Spaceship!, a holo filled jelly.

image

This color could definitely work in a space themed sandwich, which is appropriate with the name. I may have to do one myself down the line. For this opacity three coats were used.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Fangirl Polish  Spaceship!, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

This is This is my Jam, a metallic silver with small fine holo glitter.

image

I adore the sparks of holo in this. There is a lot in the polish, and you can see some of it in the photo. Two coats for opacity with this one.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, Fangirl Polish This is my Jam, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

image

This is Wyldstyle a black crelly with blue and pink glitters.

image

You have to look closely to see how packed it is with glitter. It shows off a lot more in person, but it’s like a fun little hidden mystery. Opacity in three coats with excellent dry time.

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

image

Last but not least is Stay Positive a beautiful pink with pink glitters and fine holo.

image

This is a beautiful shade of pink and the glitters just add to that. Opacity in three coats, awesome dry time and no smudging.

Another great collection from one of my favorite brands. They are all in stock now and can be purchased individually or as a set for a discount. She also just started a cool new thing of a one shot polish that releases every Wednesday. It’s available for a week or until it sells out, whichever happens first.

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.

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

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.

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! ^_^

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.

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! ^_^

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.

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.

image

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! ^_^

Happy Thanksgiving, or, Happy Thursday if you don’t celebrate!  The lack of posts are due to two things,  one, the holiday makes it hard to sit down and do my nails,  and two, my epic giveaway!  I’ve been revealing prizes once a day over on my Instagram leading up to my Birthdayversary Giveaway, starting November 30.  I coined the term Birthdayversary since I’m having the giveaway between the one year anniversary of the blog, November 23, and my birthday,  December 2!  I’ll have more details on November 30 when the giveaway starts, and if you want to see what’s in the prize pack check out Instagram.
