Sneak Peek: China Glaze Ready To Wear Collection – Fall 2018 // Bottles and Swatch Wheels


Hi everyone! While browsing the internet the other day and finding the new China Glaze Halloween collection I also found this new Ready To Wear FW 18 Collection! I don’t know if the FW stands for Fashion Week or Fall/Winter, but it works for both! I am loving this collection for fall! What great colors! I am not affiliated with China Glaze.

Check out Part 1 of my swatch and review HERE.

Sinful Colors – Shimmy Shimmy // 2018 Vanessa Hudgens Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure was a tough color for me to get my hands on! Originally the Vanessa Hudgens Collection was sold at Ulta; it was super easy to find and purchase. This color however didn’t make it due to some production problems. A couple months of excuses and people getting sent free ones from Sinful Colors (if they were lucky enough) and finally there was a release at Walgreens (maybe other stores also, but I know many people were able to get this at Walgreens). Unfortunately for me, my Walgreens stores have not got any new Sinful Collections all year and my Walmart no longer carries ANY Sinful Colors! It’s very difficult for me to ever find Walgreens or Walmart releases. This is why I really wish Sinful Colors would just open an online store. It would be so much easier that way for many of us!

I’d congratulate the people on the Sinful Colors FB fan page when they were sent free ones or won drawings for them but would put my wish out there hoping that I could get my hands on this color. Then a polish fairy who goes by @walkofnails came to my rescue! She’d seen my posts of wanting this one and not being able to find it in my area so when she found some at her local Walgreens, she thought of me and messaged if I’d like one.

That’s why I love the nail polish community. People are always looking out for each other and helping each other out. So that is my story of getting my hands on this color. Thank you Amy for helping me!

Flirtin’ Cosmetics – Pixie Poison // Road To Polish Con Series May 2018


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is another ‘new to me’ brand. This polish was a part of the “Road To Polish Con” series leading up to the Polish Con convention that just took place in New York.  I may have been unfamiliar with this brand, but this polish has caused me to take notice! You can find this brand HERE. I am not affiliated.

China Glaze OMG Collection Flashback // Swatch, Review and Comparisons with the Original OMG Collection


Hi everyone! Oh boy! I’m going to have a long post with a lot of photos today!

In 2008 China Glaze released the OMG Collection. There were 12 beautiful,  linear holographic polishes in the collection. This June, for the 10 year anniversary, they have released an OMG Flashback Collection with 6 of the 12 polishes. Before it was released, there was speculation if they would be as great as the originals or if we’d be let down like with the Hologlam and Tronica “holographic” collections from a few years ago.  I’m here to tell you (and show you) that this is not at all a let down! These 6 polishes are just as wonderful as the originals!! Way to go China Glaze! This is how a Flashback collection should be done!

Ethereal Lacquer – Shattered Seas // Prototype


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a special one from Ethereal Lacquer. A couple weeks ago Ethereal Lacquer put some prototypes up for sale. I was just frantically adding them all to my cart and checked out. After the fact, I realized that two of them were One of a Kind prototypes and I was so fortunate to have gotten both of them! My ninja fingers were working well that day! This polish today is one of those One of a Kinds!

You can find Ethereal Lacquer HERE. She just had a pre-order so everything is showing as sold out right now, but there will be more to come! Follow her on Instagram or join her Facebook fan group to get all the upcoming info on what’s coming! I am not affiliated.

OPI Pop Culture Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! Today I have the new/upcoming 6 piece Pop Culture Collection from OPI. You all are going to think I’ve lost my mind when you see the photos below, but I am not hating this collection! Keep in mind you are seeing up close and expanded photos and they don’t look all that appealing, but in real life, at arm’s length, these do not look that bad. I actually really love a couple of them and at least one of them I would not wear again.

Now, I am a big fan of textured polishes. I have all the Zoya PixieDusts, OPI Liquid Sands, and a few from L’oreal among others. You do have to be a fan of gritty texture or just turn away now, these are not for you! In my opinion, these do not look good with topcoat and even worse with matte topcoat. They actually are not as bumpy and obnoxious if you layer one coat over a similar base color either. I will show you all of that below.

I bought these from PolishPick.com. You can find them HERE. I am not really affiliated, I do buy the polish from them but I am a choice in their drop down menu of where you heard about the company. I don’t get any perks if you do or don’t pick me, but please choose my name if you do make a purchase! I am not affiliated with OPI.

I do have a lot of photos today!

Stamped Mani: Using China Glaze Ma-holo At Me, China Glaze Glamletics and Pueen Fairytale Lover Collection Plate #1


Hi everyone! I have a quick post today. For today’s manicure I tried stamping. I think this may be my third attempt at stamping. I thought this turned out pretty well and wanted to share it. I love tone on tone stamping . I am not affiliated with any brands used today.

China Glaze – Ma-holo At Me // Summer 2018 Shades of Paradise Collection


Hi everyone! Today I have the only polish I bought from the new China Glaze Shades of Paradise Collection. I probably would have bought others, but the display at my Sally Beauty was really picked over and had wrong items in it, etc, so this was the only one I ended up getting. The great news is this is a holographic polish! I love when mainstream polish companies put out something other than the same cremes or shimmers!
