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!

Necessary Evil Polish – The Samurai // 2018 Summer Metals and Multi Chromes Collection


Hi everyone! Today I have another ‘new to me’ brand, Necessary Evil Polish. I bought my first one a couple months ago on Polish Pickup but they were at the Indie Shop last week and I grabbed a few more.

The Samurai’s collection was debuted at The Indie Shop and will be coming to her Etsy store soon, I don’t see it available just yet. You can find the shop HERE. I am not affiliated.

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!

Finger Paints – The Fantasy Collection Spring 2018


Hi everyone! Today I have a collection of 6 polishes from Finger Paints to share with you. Finger Paints are only found at Sally Beauty stores. I checked my store in the middle of April and this collection was not out yet, but I went again a couple days ago and a full, new collection was out on the shelves. Even better, the polishes were Buy 1 Get 1 50% off! You have to love a polish sale!

If you love contrasting shimmer like I do, this is the collection you have to see! I am not affiliated with Sally Beauty or Finger Paints.

Contrary Polish – Cocoon Galaxy // Polish Pickup April 2018


Hi everyone! Today’s mani is from the last Polish Pickup earlier this month. If you’re not familiar with Polish Pickup, it’s a group of indie makers coming together around a central theme each month to offer exclusive items for one weekend. That is the condensed version, you can read all about how it works HERE. You can find a lot of variety too: polishes, wax melts, lotions and oils, jewelry, stamping plates plus more! Every month has different things. Get ready for a new sale weekend too, this weekend (May 4-7, 2018)  the website will be open and the theme will be The 90’s!

A great thing about Polish Pickup is you get charged a flat fee of $3 shipping within the US ($5 to Canada) no matter how many polishes you buy or how many orders you make throughout the weekend it’s open! If you place multiple orders, you will be refunded excess shipping charges later in the month when shipping starts.

April’s theme was ‘Across the Universe: Planets & Galaxies’.  I bought quite a few from April and this Contrary was the first one I chose to wear. If you like this from Contrary Polish, you can find her other polishes HERE. I am not affiliated with Polish Pickup or Contrary Polish.

OPI Grease Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 2


Hi everyone! Today I have the next 6 polishes from the upcoming OPI summer collection! This collection corresponds with the 40th anniversary of Grease the movie! As I said in Part 1, I may or may not be old enough to have seen this when it originally came out in theaters (I’ll never tell!) but I do still own the vinyl record!

Be warned that if you’re familiar with the songs from Grease, some of these names will cause you to be humming the songs all day!

I bought this collection from PolishPick.com.  They have all the recent OPI collections (plus many other brands too!) for great prices and reasonable (and quick) shipping!

You can check out the mini collection of Leather Like Effect polishes HERE.

As usual, there are a lot of photos today!!
