Splendor Nail Lacquer - 30, Flirty & Fabulous Collection: Swatches & Review

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.

China Glaze - Road Trip Collection, Spring 2015: Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Hello, all! I have a very exciting (and very large) post to share with you today! I've swatched the entire China Glaze Road Trip collection and I must say, I'm in full 'swoon' mode over how these all look together! This is CG's new Spring 2015 collection and whether it's time of year, or the colors, I'm loving this collection. It consists of 12 shades, 6 cremes and 6 cremes with shimmer added in. While some of these shades might be similar or might have dupes somewhere in the polish world, I think this is a really strong collection and I'm a fan.

Nothing to Disclose

Hello, all! Another Digital Dozen week is upon us and I'm excited! I feel like (and know) I haven't done real nail art in forever. I know I've been doing lots of reviews and swatching lately but I'm trying to find a balance between the two so bear with me while I'm catching up!

For this week's theme, the ladies of the Digital Dozen are taking on an interesting theme...Patterns on Patterns...meaning, well, a pattern over a pattern! This is going to be interesting ;)
