China Glaze Ready To Wear FW 18 Collection – Fall 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 1 with Comparisons


Hey everyone! It’s taken me awhile, but I have my swatches and review for the first 6 polishes in the new Ready To Wear FW 18 Collection from China Glaze. This is a 12 piece collection with a nice variety of finishes.

I also have just a couple comparisons at the bottom. If you think of something else you’d like compared to any of these, let me know in the comments and if I have it, I will swatch them for you!

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!

Comparison: Cirque Colors Earthen vs Cirque Colors Wildflowers // Spring 2018 Desert Bloom Collection


Hi everyone! Last month Cirque Colors had mystery bags for sale and to get to free shipping I wanted to add two polishes from the Desert Bloom collection so I chose Earthen & Wildflowers. When I first opened the package I was a little disappointed because they seemed so close in person. Granted, they are both gorgeous and you really can’t go wrong with whichever one you choose, but in my opinion, unless you are a diehard Cirque Collector you really only need one of these. So I’m going to do a comparison of the two so you can make your own decision on which one (or two) you need.

Comparison: “Unicorn Pee” Polishes // Max Factor Fantasy Fire (2011), Girly Bits Shift Happens (2012 & 2017), Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart (2018)


Hi everyone! Today I have a real quick comparison post of some Unicorn Pee toppers. Unicorn Pee is a hard to find pigment that shifts red to green to gold. The original pigment has been discontinued so it is getting harder to find.

Ethereal Lacquer just reopened her store in the last week or two after quite a few years and the first polish she brought back was Worlds Apart. I guess this was a fan favorite but I was not that familiar with Ethereal Lacquer back in the day so I don’t have an original bottle to compare for you, but I do have a lot of other Unicorn Pee toppers and polishes. The maker of Ethereal has said she used double the amount of original UP in this 2018 batch so the base color is quite a bit more sheer than it was. I just got my Worlds Apart in the mail today and wanted to share with you what it’s like.

Today I will show you a comparison with the original Max Factor Fantasy Fire from 2011, Girly Bits Shift Happens both the original from 2012 and the re-release from 2017, and the new release of Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart 2018. I have these both over a black base and a purple base.

At the bottom of the post, I also have a comparison of Tonic Curio, KBShimmer Let’s Slang, Ethereal Lacquer Worlds Apart, Tonic Serendipity, and KBShimmer So Jelly all on their own.

I have quite a few pictures today.

Bee’s Knees Lacquer – Salty Anon


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is another stunner from Bee’s Knees Lacquer. She is jumping up to being one of my favorite indies. Her polishes are complex and fun to wear. This one was a perfect match to my Diorific Emerald mani from yesterday, they would make a great combination!

You can find Bee’s Knees products HERE. She’ll be closing up shop soon to reopen with this polish I’m sharing today and a few more new things on November 17. I am not affiliated with Bee’s Knees Lacquer.
