press sample

Hello, all! Hope you are all doing well :) One of my favorite high end brands, ncLA, has recently released a new collection and I'm pretty excited about them. I love neutral shades and this entire collection is "The next best thing to being naked" ;)

There are a total of 6 nude shades in the Nudes collection varying from light to dark shades which is nice and very refreshing. They're all cremes and I have 2 of the lighter shades to share with you today.

il etait un vernis - Végétal Collection: Swatches, Review & Nail Art

press sample

Happy Monday, my friends! For those who visit my blog often, you may notice that things look a bit different as I slaved away over the weekend redoing my blog design! I was getting tired of the other one and was ready for something new but hopefully still fun. I think it's very much "me" and I had a lot of fun working out the bits and pieces to make it what I wanted. You might see me tweaking the colors here and there for awhile, but as of right now, I think I'm pleased with the outcome. I'd love to hear what you think of it!

Anyway, onwards to what we're really here for, nail polish! I have a wonderful collection to share with you today that is bound to chase off any case of the Monday's you may be experiencing. This is the latest Spring collection from Il Était un Vernis, a French brand that I've been swooning over since their inception. Let's take a look at the garden inspired collection, Végétal

ALIQUID Lacquer - The Austentatious Collection: Swatches & Review

nothing to disclose
Happy Wednesday, all! I know I'm glad it's the middle of the week (I loathe Tuesdays!) and I've got a great new collection to share with you from ALIQUID Lacquer! The Austentatious Collection is inspired by the unforgettable Bennet sisters of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice!

I think Alison has done a great job of capturing the tone and beauty of the book and the era and I just love how these look! One of the things I love best about this brand is how creative and unique Alison's polishes are. She always creates polishes that I've never seen before and I love the unique color combos she whips up...and these shades are no different!

Mischo Beauty - Swatches, Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

Hello, all! Today I have a new to me brand to share, Mischo Beauty! Mischo was created by Kitiya Mischo King while she was pregnant with her son and it's all about being 5-Free, long lasting, and fashion forward. So far, I am thoroughly impressed with these polishes and love the minimalistic chic feeling the colors and the bottles evoke.
