Glam Polish - Cast a Spell Part 3, White Witch Collection: Swatches, Review, & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello, all! I am so excited about today's polishes from Glam Polish! *insert squeal of excitement* I have lusted after this stunning Australian indie brand for so long and I can easily say that these polishes live up to their hype.

These four shades are apart of the third Cast a Spell series collection, The White Witch Collection! From the press release:

Nine sparkling pastel holo shades packed full of holographic glitter, in part one and two of our Cast a Spell Collection we explored the world of dark magic, Cast a Spell Part 3: The White Witch Collection is inspired by white magic, the use of supernatural powers or magic for good and selfless purposes.

This collection consists of 9 beautiful chunky pastel holos with great formulas that are perfection in a bottle. I can't get enough of these and I hope you feel the same! I also did a little bit of nail art with each of these (even though they're stunning enough on their own!). These beauties will be released later today, March 4th at 5pm EST so don't miss out!

Press Sample

Hello, all! I have been so incredibly busy lately (I have lots of awesome projects in the works that I'm not able to share with you all just yet!), but I wanted to share the new 30, Flirty, & Fabulous collection by Splendor Nail Lacquer with you today! This collection is in honor of the owner, Leslee's, 30th Birthday! I'm loving that these aren't seasonal polishes and hopefully it's a nice change of pace for you all :)

These polishes are currently in pre-order and are 20% off list price until March 1st so if any of them strike your fancy, definitely don't wait to grab these! In addition to the polishes, there are some fun jewelry items that you can also purchase at a discount during the pre-sale. Let's take a look!

Delush - Spring to Conclusions Collection: Swatches, Review, & Nail Art

Hello, all! I have the brand new Delush Spring to Conclusions collection to share with you today and I'm really excited about them! I wanted to get these up earlier but I've been under the weather all week and so out of it that I didn't get a chance to finish editing my photos until now...but I hope the wait was worth it! 

As usual, these Delush shades are lovely, with easy to work with formulas. I like how bright and cheery this collection is while still being very wearable outside of the season. And, since I always love the names that Adrianna chooses for her polishes, I did a bunch of nail art for all these! Let's dig in :)

Zoya Naturel Satins - Transitional Winter/Spring 2015: Swatches & Review

Hello, hello! Today I have the Zoya Satins Transitional Winter/Spring collection to share with you all! I've been home sick the last two days and feeling awful, but I figured it was the perfect opportunity to actually edit and post the collections I've swatched lately. 

When I first saw these polishes I squealed in delight...I mean, look at these lovelies! Everything from the color palette to the frosted bottles feels sophisticated and elegant and the satin finish on these lives up to that standard. I did struggle slightly with application when I first started using these. The first 3 polishes I'm showing caused some heartache when it came to application, but the last 3 were a breeze. I'm not sure if it was the individual polishes causing problems, or if there was a learning curve which made application at the end easier...either way, some people may struggle with the formula, other may not!

NUBAR - Spring 2015, Pop Collection: Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Hello, hello! I've got swatches of the new Nubar Pop! Collection for Spring to share with you all today! Nubar has been around for ages, but this is my first time trying them out and on the whole, I'm very impressed by the formulas on these! While some of these were "misses" for me personally, I find this to be a fun and unique take on the classic springs shades we so often see! One cool thing about this collection, it's available in both a classic polish, as well as in Nubar's Gelicure soak off gel polish.

For those who don't know (like I didn't!), Nubar is an incredibly conscious polish. Not only are they Big-5 Free, they're also a certified Vegan product and have the backing of PETA, guaranteeing no animals were used to test products. Definitely a plus in my book.
