Cirque Metropolis - Swatches & Nail Art

press sample

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday! I've got swatches from one of my all time favorite brands today - Cirque Colors! These 6 shades are the next installment of their popular creme polishes, the Metropolis Collection. I can honestly say that the Metropolis collection as a whole is one of the best selection of polishes I've seen. I'm a die hard fan of creme finishes and I feel like Annie does an incredible job each month curating new and exciting shades.

So let's take a look at the polishes that were apart of the tail end of last year's collection!

Sienna Byron Bay - Swatches

press sample 

Hello, my friends. It's been awhile, hasn't it? I've been busy with life and work and struggling to balance my day to day duties...but I'm so missing my blog! So I've got a few sets of swatch posts to share with you all to get back into the swing of things! Today I've got a new to me brand to share, Sienna Byron Bay! They are an Australian based brand (Byron Bay!) that boasts a 7-Free formula which is both Vegan and Cruelty Free. Always nice to see brands that value this!

Right off the bat, these bottles are the most striking feature of this brand. They're squoval glass bottles are all topped unique (and stunning) wood caps. I LOVE the look of these. From a marketing standpoint, these are spot on. So how do the polishes do?...let's dive in!

Art Deco Vibe - a Daniel Wellington, Classic Black Sheffield Inspired Look

press sample

Hello my friends! I hope that where ever you are, you are having a great day :)

Today I've got a nail art look inspired by one of my favorite watch companies, Daniel Wellington! I have worked with them a few times in the past and I wear their watches almost daily. I love how classy and pulled together I feel when I wear them. They have become my go-to "jewelry"...if a watch can be that.

The latest one I have to share is from their new collection, Classic Black. The defining feature of the collection is a black watch face paired with various DW band styles. I chose the Classic Black Sheffield as I loved the sleek pairing of black on black. The touch of rose gold in the hands and numbers warm the look up and I love it.

Erin Condren Inspired - Pineapple Punch Nail Art

nothing to disclose 

Hello, all! Happy Sunday/Monday (depending on when you're reading this!). Hope you had a nice weekend :) Here in the States we're gearing up for Thanksgiving this Thursday, but I couldn't help but share one final "summer" look with you all before we really truly move onto Fall and Winter looks. I hope you don't mind!

If you'll recall, a few months back I teamed up with the fabulous crew at Erin Condren and did a few fun manicures inspired by their planners. Well, in that post I shared two looks...but I had actually created four total designs, so today I've got another to share!
