All That Glitters Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to show you some great polishes from All That Glitters!



Eggnog Wasted


Eggnog Wasted is a light cream creme, loaded with gold micro hexes, green, red, brown, and copper hexes, and green bars.  The formula was easy to work with, and definitely did not require any glitter fishing!
Shown is two coats of Eggnog Wasted.



Autumn Bomb


Autumn Bomb is a clear coat loaded with micro copper glitter along with copper, green, orange, and gold hexes.  This was an easy one to work with as well.  It applied smoothly and the glitter was easily distributed across the nail.
Shown is one coat over Nubar Orange Cream.



Pinch of Grinch


Pinch of Grinch is a soft green shimmer loaded with gold stars, silver micro hexes, soft green mini hexes, and red and green medium hexes.  The formula was easy to work with, but was a bit on the sheer side.
Shown is three coats of Pinch of Grinch.



Lights in the Night


Lights in the Night is a medium blue shimmer loaded with gold stars, gold bars, and multi-sized silver and gold hexes.  This was another smooth formula.  I did have to do a little fishing for the stars, but that's always to be expected with larger glitters.
Shown is three coats of Lights in the Night.



What the Elf?


What the Elf? is a black jelly loaded with white squares, green bars, and red, green, and silver multi-sized hexes.  This had a smooth formula, and the glitter seemed to really latch onto the brush for great coverage.
Shown is three coats of What the Elf?.



Spotty Dottie Holiday


Spotty Dottie Holiday is a clear coat loaded with red and green bars and multi-sized hexes.  The formula was very smooth and easy to apply.  Some of the bars did want to stick together though.
Shown is one coat of Spotty Dottie Holiday over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.



Killer Icicle


Killer Icicle is a soft silver shimmer loaded with multi-sized iridescent hexes, squares, and shreds.  The formula for this was a bit on the sheer side, so I opted for layering it.  Also, the shimmer seemed to often overpower the iridescent glitters.
Shown is one coat of Killer Icicle over Nicole by OPI I Sea You and Raise You.



Goody Goody Gumdrops


Goody Goody Gumdrops is a medium pink creme loaded with purple and green micro glitters, along with blue, red, purple, and green hexes.  The formula was very easy to work with and applied really smoothly.
Shown is two coats of Goody Goody Gumdrops.


Cool Yule


Cool Yule is a soft blue cream loaded with light purple, teal, and blue hexes.  This one was also very easy to apply.  I absolutely love the look of this one!  I think it might be my favorite.  
Shown is three coats of Cool Yule.


I had a lot of fun trying out all of these fun polishes, and I hope you enjoyed them too!

Glitter Gal Wisteria Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I have an awesome Glitter Gal for you today!

Wisteria


Wisteria is a soft lilac holographic.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, although it is slightly on the sheer side.  After three coats, I still had a bit of a VNL.


This is such a delicate color.  It's absolutely beautiful ... indoors and outdoors!


Glitter Gal is available at many online locations, such as their official website here and Dusk to Dawn Beauty, which is my favorite US Glitter Gal retailer.  They are available in both 10ml and 15ml sized bottles, that are always “Big 5 Free”, cruelty free and Vegan friendly.

Barbie-esque Chevrons

Hi everyone!  I have no idea how it happened, but I came across a picture of the original Barbie doll yesterday, and it gave me an idea for a fun mani!!!


I started off with two coats of Zoya Lara, a medium pink creme.  I thought it would made a nice touch for the traditional Barbie pink.  I followed it with one coat of SV.


I then taped my tips and added one coat of Wet n' Wild Ebony Hates Chris, a black creme.  I followed again with one coat of SV.


I again taped over the tips, and then paired Konad Special White with Bundle Monster plate BM-201 to add the chevron pattern. 


I added a small light purple rhinestone to the edge of my ring finger for a little girly addition.  I finished off with one final coat of SV.



I had a lot of fun with this one, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Happy Painting!




Colors: Zoya Lara, Wet n' Wild Ebony Hates Chris, Konad Special White

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-201

China Glaze Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I have some polishes from the new Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away Collection from China Glaze for you today.



Bend Over Backwards


Bend over Backwards is a medium red shimmer with a slight orange undertone,  The formula was a little on the thinner side, so it required three coats for a smooth and opaque finish.  The color is not one that is terribly unique, but it's still a pretty shade.
Shown is three coats of Bend Over Backwards.



Igniting Love


Igniting Love is a juicy red creme with a slight pink undertone.  The forumla was a bit think for a creme, so this one also required more than two coats to eliminate the VNL.  This is actually a really fun shade to wear.  It definitely pops!
Shown is three coats of Igniting Love. 



Hanging in the Balance


Hanging in the Balance is a medium blue creme.  This one was also a bit thin for a creme, but applied smoothly.
Shown is three coats of Hanging in the Balance.



Creative Fantasy


Creative Fantasy is a medium purple jelly.  The formula was very thin for this one, and definitely required more than two coats.  I did not use a top coat here to show you the rubberized finish it has when it dries, which I absolutely adore.  
Shown is three coats of Creative Fantasy.



Water You Waiting For


Water You Waiting For is a tinted blue base loaded with blue, green, and purple micro hexes.  Application for this was a little difficult, as the polish does not go on very smoothly.  It seemed to clump up on the brush a good bit.  It is also a near dupe of last year's Kendall on the Katwalk from Nicole by OPI.
Shown is two coats of Water You Waiting For.



Get Carried Away


Get Carried Away is a black jelly loaded with black and silver micro glitters, black bars, and silver, black, and rose medium hexes.  (The rose hexes have a bit of a reflective curl to them.)  I have never said these words before, but this is, without a doubt, the worst bottle of polish I have ever encountered.  The black base is too dark to make out most of the glitter.  It was like trying to apply sludge to my nails, and refused to have any kind of a smooth finish.  It just doesn't flow really.
Shown is two coats of Get Carried Away.


Overall, I very much like the majority of these.  There are some really fun shades in this collection.
I hope you enjoyed!

Happy Painting!

Ozotic Beam 907 Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I have another gorgeous Ozotic to show you today!!

Beam 907


Beam 907 is a beautiful reflective polish with flashes of blue and green.  It is far too sheer to achieve an opaque finish on it's own, so you'll definitely need to layer it.  It looks absolutely amazing layered over almost any other shade.  The formula was very smooth and easy to apply.
Shown is one coat of Beam 907 over OPI Alpine Snow and OPI Black Onyx.


This really is a stone cold stunner of a polish!  I can't wait to try it out over some other colors to see what I can create!!

Naild' It Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!!  I have some new polishes from Naild' It to show you today!!



Pepper Mint Twist


Pepper Mint Twist is a clear coat loaded with red and white hexes, squares, and bars in various sizes.  I really like this one a lot.  I felt like I had crushed peppermints on my nails!  The formula was easy to work with, although I did have to do a little fishing for the larger squares.  (But this is usually always the case with any larger glitters.)
Shown is two coats of Pepper Mint Twist over OPI Skull & Glossbones.



Snow Flake Cake


Snow Flake Cake is a soft blue shimmer loaded with silver holographic micro hexes, an array of multi-sized white hexes, and white bars.  The formula for this one seemed like it might be a bit on the thick side when I opened the bottle, but it was actually very easy to work with.  
Shown is two coats over OPI Alpine Snow.



Reindeer Poo-f


Reindeer Poo-f is a brownish grey shimmer loaded with a vast assortment of multi-colored and muli-sized hexes, squares, and stars.  This one actually gave me a little bit of trouble.  The glitter dragged down to the tip of my nail with each brush stroke, so I had to use very light strokes to keep them in place.  Also, a lot of the glitters seem to get lost in the shimmer.
Shown is two coats of Reindeer Poo-f over OPI Black Onyx.



Its Grinch-mas Time


Its Grinch-mas Time is a clear coat loaded with red and green micro glitters.  The formula was very easy to work with, and applied smoothly.  I really like how the green pops out against the red here.
Shown is two coats over OPI Alpine Snow.

Happy Painting!
