ALIQUID Lacquer - Anniversary Trio: Swatches, Review & Link to Giveaway/Contests!

Press Sample

Hello, all! Today I've got swatches of the ALIQUID Lacquer First Anniversary trio of polishes! These were created by Alison in honor of all the hard work and improvements that she's made in her first year of having her shop open. Anniversaries are great times to reflect on resolutions of the past and update them for future ventures, so this collection is just that! These polishes were made to reflect some future goals for this indie brand. How cool is that??

Live Love Polish - Various Color Club Shades: Swatches, Review, Nail Art & Tutorial

Hello, all! Today I have swatches of a few bright Color Club shades from the polish retailer, Live Love Polish, to share with you all! Now, I know it's fall, BUT, who doesn't love a few bright shades mixed in with the fall ones we've been seeing? Besides, our friends in the southern hemisphere are gearing up for their spring and summer so we can't forget about them! ;)

These 4 shades are a mix of Color Club polishes from previous summer and spring collections and while some of them are shades we've seen before, they're nice staple shades if you don't have them yet! I also put together a nail art look using these shades and did a little video showing my process so read through to the end for that :)

Guest Post for The Dalai Lama's Nails - Stained Glass Nail Art

Hello, all! Today I've got a guest post to share with you over on The Dalai Lama's Nails! Hannah is celebrating 3 years of blogging all month long and she's asked a few ladies to guest post for her to help celebrate. I ended up recreating a fabulous design that Hannah did a year back...and then something extra special happened! Another one of my favorite bloggers (it may or may not be Adventures in Acetone ;)  ) also recreated the same design so it became an awesome collaborative post between all 3 of us! Head over the the Dalai Lama's Nails to read our full post! 
Happy Polishing :)

Habit Cosmetics - Winter 2014 Collection: Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello all! Happy Veteran's Day (and a big thank you to those who are/have served our country)! I have polishes from one of my all time favorite brands to share with you today, Habit Cosmetics! My first experience with Habit was over a year ago with a few of Aja's original shades and she has since released a dozen or so more beautiful polishes that will make anyone drool. The three I have today are apart of this year's Winter collection which is inspired by the ocean...so naturally it is absolutely stunning.

For those who don't know, Habit polishes are all natural and use Myrrh extract to help naturally strengthen the nail. It is vegan friendly, cruelty free, gluten free and 5-free and in my opinion they have some of the most unique, chic and beautiful bottles around. Read through to see what I think of these and let me know your favorites!
