China Glaze - Electric Nights Collection: Swatches & Review

Hello, hello!! I have an epicly wonderful post to share with you all today! I have the China Glaze Summer collection, Electric Nights to share with you and oh man, such a great set of neon bright shades! I've really been enjoying the CG collections lately and I'm especially fond of the fun glitter toppers of this set. Let's take a look! 
Note - all the below swatches are as is, no white base coat. I wanted to show the polishes as they really are, so keep in mind, if you use a white base, these will be even more vibrant and you can use less coats than I mention.

Powder Perfect - The Hardwicke Collection: Swatches & Review

press sample 

Hello, all! I've had a pretty rough last few days and to top it all off, I've managed to get sick...but! I have swatches of the stunning new Hardwicke Collection by the always fabulous Powder Perfect to share today! If you'll recall from last year's review of the Mysterius Magnum collection, Jacinta always manages to create wonderfully ethereal themes and polishes to pair with them.

The village of Hardwicke is nestled in a valley between snow-capped mountains, surrounded by 
forest that stretches as far as the eye can see. 
During the spring months, winter lingers on & fog clings like a shadow to the mountainside.

In the stillness of the morning you can hear the woodcutter at work, splitting logs felled in the 
woods. Children play in the nearby creek. 
The night draws closer.
A woman lights a candle and puts it on the window sill, waiting for them to come home.

Life is, as it has been for hundreds of years.

Hello, all! I have a great monthly box to share with you all today! The monthly indie polish box, For the Love of Polish, is a collaboration between Polished for Days and Illyrian Polish. Each month they invite another indie polish maker to join them for a specific theme and create magic! This month, the theme is Galaxy and their guest is Starrily...and you really can't go wrong with that! I also couldn't resist doing a galaxy nail look with each of the polish. Let's take a look!
