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

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.

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.

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.

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! ^_^

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.

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.

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: Space Madness Review

Standard

Yay!  First post of 2015! Today I have a soon to be released polish, January 5 to be exact,  from one my of favorite indies, I, A.M CustomColor.  This is Space Madness, from her Ren and Stimpy Collection.   There are so many beautiful colors in this collection,  so please check out her social media to see swatches from other talented bloggers.

image

Space Madness is a deep blue jelly with glitter, it looks darker in the bottle than on the nail.

image

image

As you can see, it is not nearly as dark on the nail, with no staining I might add, with lots of little sparkly goodness. As with almost all of her polishes, was a dream to put on, and dried nicely.  If you haven’t tried her topcoat yet, I highly recommend it.  I’ve been through several topcoats now that got goopy half way through the bottle and her’s is still going strong. Plus it’s shiny as all heck!  I also did something fun with the polish.

image

I’m still learning in the nail art department,  but I tried doing a tiny nebula on my accent nail for fun!

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

Polish was great, which is what I’ve come to expect from her.  Cleanup was also a breeze, which I don’t always expect from dark polishes like this. Please visit her sites below to see other swatches,  and as always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

I, A.M CustomColor: Holodaze & Eve if 2015 Review

Standard

Today I have two limited edition holiday polishes from I, A.M CustomColor.  First up is Holodaze a Christmas glitter topper with multiple shaped glitters and colors.

image

image

image

I used her retired shade, Idiot Dog Brain for the base.  As you can see there’s a ton of different glitters in there.  With the really big ones it was easier to let the bottle sit upside down for a bit and then shake so they could be picked up.  These are some large glitters too, so you will have a textured feel unless you really pile on the topcoat.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor Idiot Dog Brain, I, A.M CustomColor Holodaze, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Up next is Eve of 2015, a New Year’s Eve themed glitter topper.  Again, lots of different glitter in this even little bowties!

image

image

image

I used Secret Serum from I, A.M CustomColor for my base in this one, I really wanted to bling it out.  There aren’t as many large glitters in this one, but still easier to get them out with the above mentioned technique.   This one comes out a lot smoother, but I would still recommend at least two coats of topcoat. 

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  I, A.M CustomColor Secret Serum,  I, A.M CustomColor Eve of 2015, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

As always, I love everything that comes out of the I, A.M CustomColor lab of awesome.  Both these polishes will be retired the last day of the year, so scoop them up while you can!  She’s also having a 25% off sale with the code holodaze14.  This is a great deal especially because she has always free shipping.  At the very least, try some of her topcoat out, I swear by it!  All links for the store are below, and as always, thanks for reading! ^_^

Daily Hues Nail Lacquer: Winter/Holiday Collection Review

Standard

Today I have for you part of the Winter and Holiday release from Daily Hues Nail Lacquer.  First up are two of the six colors in the Winter Collection.   Charolette, a beautiful terracotta rose color and Violet, a satiny light purple.  Both of these colors are available matte or glossy, I’m going to be showing the glossy versions.

image

image

image

image

Both colors applied like a dream and had excellent dry time.  I did two coats to reach opacity.

Products used: Duri Revacote, Orly Bonder basecoat, Charolette or Violet, I, A.M. CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Up next I have Holly, a rich green holo, and Eve, a packed silver holo glitter that is opaque in two coats.  Rather than do a normal swatch with Eve I did something fun with it.

image

image

image

image

My nail art skills are still lacking, but it takes practice, right?  Eve applied well and dried quickly and you can see how blingy it is even just in the stripes!  Holly is gorgeous, but, clean up was a bit of a pain with it.  I expected as much though since it’s a highly pigmented darker color and those types of polish usually are a little more stubborn during clean up.  The clean up is definitely worth it with the color and holo pay off.  I used two coats of Holly, but probably could of used one.

Products used: Dainty Digits Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  Holly and Eve, I, A.M. CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Overall I loved all the polishes, even with the clean up.  All contact information for the store is below, and as always, thanks for reading!  ^_^

Regal Ween Lacquer: New Duos Review

Standard

Today I have a new pair of duos coming out tomorrow, 11/16, at 12 EST from one of my favorite brands, Regal Ween Lacquer.  In my opinion, everyone needs these duos in their life, they’re gorgeous!

First we have the Birthday Duo, to celebrate the owner’s husband’s 30th Birthday, on November 30! 

image

This duo consists of Bling, Bling, a beautiful delicate gold holo, and 30 On The 30th, a ultra packed golden glitter topper.

image

image

Both are beautiful, and the glitter compliments it perfectly!

image

image

The first macro is with one coat of 30 On The 30th,  and the second is with three.  Even with all those coats, it still dries down and isn’t thick at all.  Bling. Bling is opaque in two coats and has easy application.   Dry time is good, with no smudges.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat,  Bling, Bling, 30 On The 30th, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

Next up I have the House Stark Duo, inspired by the Stark family from Game of Thrones.

image

This duo consists of The North Remmebers, a soft icy blue holo, and Winter Is Coming, a fantastic silver and iridescent glitter topper.

image

image

Once again, both beautiful and the glitter goes with it perfectly.

image

image

First macro is one coat of Winter Is Coming, second is three coats.  Again, dried down and wasn’t thick at all even with three coats.  It was very hard to capture all the shifty goodness in the glitter, and I will more than likely post a video tomorrow on my Instagram.  The North Remembers is opaque in two coats, great consistency,  and easy to work with.  Dry time was also great.

Products used: Dainty Digits Polish Glitter Be Gone basecoat, The North Remembers, Winter Is Coming, I, A.M CustomColor DiamondPRO topcoat.

These duos are both perfect and each one has something everyone can love.  All information for the shop is below, and as always, thanks for reading!  ^_^
