Hi everyone! Today I have my swatch and review of all 15 polishes in the new OPI Holiday 2018 collection! This is based on the Disney movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. I bought this collection at PolishPick.com. You can find them HERE.
I have a lot to show you and A LOT of pictures! I usually break these collections up into two posts and you will see why here. I like to show off each polish in different lighting so I end up with so many photos! I decided to go ahead and post it all in one post, but it is long! Let me know in the comments if you have a preference for large collections, all in one post or break it up into two. Let’s get started!
Hi everyone! Today I have the 6 piece OPI Metamorphosis Collection to show you. This is a collection of shimmer/glitter toppers. A few of them you could wear on their own if you want just a real ethereal look.
I bought these online from PolishPick.com. You can find that store HERE.
Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from a ‘new to me’ brand, Prism Polish UK. Yes, this brand is in the UK and yes, shipping to the US is crazy expensive but I saw one I had to have on Facebook and ordered a couple more for the ride. Plus I went in on shipping with someone from FB and that helped offset the cost. Hopefully she’ll find a US stockist soon because I need more of these!!

Hi everyone! Today I’m doing a test to see if my oldest thermal polishes still transition. I see the question asked often, “How long do thermal polishes last before they die and stop transitioning?”. No one really knows the answer. There are some variables that will help them last longer, store in a cool dark place is the big one. Many brands will not mail thermals during the hottest months so they will not get burnt from the heat during transit.
So this collection of thermals is my oldest, let’s see if they still work!
Hi everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve bought (or worn for that matter) a Butter London polish. A couple weeks ago they had a 30% off sale with free shipping and they had a peel off gel base I’ve been wanting to try, so along with that, I picked out two sale polishes. This is one of those sale items. I am not affiliated.
Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from the Polish Pickup last month. The theme was Musicals and this Chaotic Glitz polish was based on the animated movie Coco. I haven’t seen that movie, but if it comes on TV I will definitely watch it!
If you are unfamiliar with Polish Pickup, it’s a web store that opens the first weekend of each month (Friday-Monday) and there are about 70+ indie brands of polish, topcoat, etc available. These items are exclusive to that months Polish Pickup and they center on a theme that is also voted on by the customers. You can read all about it HERE. And yes, this coming weekend is the first weekend of the month so go to the website HERE and make an account and start building your wishlist for this month. The theme for September is Horror Movies! I already have 7 in my wishlist!
This was my first Chaotic Glitz polish. I love the skull label she used to go along with the movie she chose as her theme! I am not affiliated with Polish Pickup or Chaotic Glitz.
Hi everyone! I’m rounding out August with a quick post of my mani using Emily de Molly’s Mighty Atom. This was an exclusive polish for HHC, which is a similar setup to PPU (Polish Pickup). HHC is open each month on the 14th with a week long pre-order of exclusive items from around 25 different makers each month. Being a pre-order, you do have to wait awhile to get the package, they state 3-4 weeks after the pre-order sale ends, but it’s always worth the wait! You can check them out HERE. The polishes for September are already loaded so you can make an account and start adding to your wishlist! (I have 3 in mine already!)
Hi everyone! Today’s mani is from 1850 Artisan Polish. If you want your nail mail to get to you quickly, this is the brand to order from. It was shipped the same day I ordered (within minutes actually) and I had it in my hands within two business days of ordering!! I do live close to the maker, maybe two hours away, but still, that is great service! Plus, you can just tell she loves her work and her brand, the packages are packed with care and attention to detail and she hand writes a thank you note on your packing slip. Plus, I met Nikki at The Indie Shop earlier this year and she is the sweetest person ever!
Anyway, you can find this polish and many more in the online store HERE. I am not affiliated, just a big fan!
Hi everyone! Today I have the two polishes Different Dimension came out with recently for their 6th Anniversary! I have been a customer of theirs for the whole 6 years too! I’ll post below the first two polishes I bought from this brand back in 2012.
As of my writing this post, these two polishes are still available on the website HERE. I am not affiliated with Different Dimension Nail Polish.
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!
