Fair Maiden Polish - Garden Party Collection, Spring 2015: Swatches & Review

Press Sample

Hello, all! I have a stunning new collection from Fair Maiden Polish to share with you all today! The spring inspired Garden Party collection will be live in just a few short hours and you'll be able to grab any and all of these colors at 10am CST, 03/21.

As you might assume, this collection is inspired by the garden and I think the makers (Adrienne & Sarah) did a wonderful job of capturing the feeling you might have at a garden party. Overall, I am incredibly impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail that these ladies have put into their brand and to top it off, I am slightly obsessed with their floral logo!

Sugarloom Cosmetics - Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello, all! I have a new to me brand to share with you all today! SUGARLOOM is a Big 5-Free, all Vegan luxury nail polish made in the USA. It comes in a large square bottle that holds 0.51 Fl Oz/15 mL so you get a huge bang for your buck (especially considering how a lot of high-end brands will often be 30oz or less and are not necessarily Vegan or Big 5-Free)!

I have a mix of finishes to share with you today, so let's dig in! The polish names have clickable links if you see one you like.

The Digital Dozen does Nature - Day 2: Savanna Lion

Nothing to Disclose

Yay! We've made it to...well, just to day 2 of Digital Dozen week...but it's still exciting! Yay! I've got another Nature inspired look to share with you today and while it didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, I do like that I tackled a design I wasn't sure I'd be able to handle.

When I was brain storming for the week, I started contemplating different biomes and actually considered painting something from several different geographic regions through out the week (I might still!). The one that immediately jumped out at me was the savanna and decided I wanted to try painting a lion in his domain. One of my favorite nail art looks to date was my elephant mani and I so this is sort of an homage to that look...though I don't like this one quite as much ;)

The Digital Dozen does Nature - Day 1: River Rock

Nothing to Disclose

Hello, all! Well, I'm already a day behind, but it's time for another Digital Dozen week! I didn't finish up last month because I had so much going on (which, unfortunately, I still do), but I'm excited to attempt this week! We're tackling the theme of "Nature" and I'm so excited about it! I love being inspired by nature so I can't wait to see what my brain manages to scrape together. No, my brain and I don't really talk much until we need to ;)

Barielle - Gentle Breeze, Spring 2015: Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hi, all! I have a new collection from one of my favorite brands to share today! Barielle has released their spring collection, Gentle Breeze, and it definitely has an air of easy breezy sophistication. The collection is made up of classic cremes (that I always love from Barielle!) as well as some cremes with subtle and beautiful shimmers mixed in. I've also done some abstract floral nail art with these because I loved the look of them all together!

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!
