KBShimmer – Hard To Empress // June 2018


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a brand new polish from KBShimmer, Hard To Empress. I think this is an add-on to the new Wanderlust Collection. This was just released last Friday, which was when I ordered it. If you don’t want to wait around for your nail mail, order from KBShimmer! They are on top of their game! I ordered on Friday and the polish was delivered on Monday. Can’t beat that shipping!! You can find KBShimmer 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!

Quixotic Polish – Olympus Vibes // Summer 2018 Vibes Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from Quixotic Polish. This is another polish I picked up at The Indie Shop a week ago but this collection is available on the website now!

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!

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.

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.
