Great Lakes Lacquer – Ember of Glass // September 2018 Glass Resurrected Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s mani is a gorgeous one from Great Lakes Lacquer. Back in January 2018 she had a hugely popular polish in Polish Pickup called Glass on Fire. It was just gorgeous! So luckily for us, this fall she came up with a whole collection based around that polish. I had to get the whole collection as soon as I could and this is the first one I’m wearing. Unfortunately this collection seems to be sold out at this time but you can check out all the other pretty things in their Bigcartel shop HERE.  I am not affiliated.

Geekish Glitter Lacquer – The Archer & Fire // Zodiac Series – Sagittarius Nov-Dec 2018


Press Sample - Pink

 


Hi everyone! I’m back with the next installment of Geekish Glitter Lacquer’s Zodiac Series! This series has a dedicated polish for each sign of the Zodiac and a different glow in the dark (GITD) topper for the four corresponding Elements. Sagittarius season just started a few days ago and with it came the Fire Element.

The polishes are only available during the month of the Zodiac it’s attached to. So these two will only be available from now through December 21. However, you will see the GITD topper during all the months that are Fire elements.

You can check out Geekish Glitter Lacquer at her website HERE. These were sent to me to swatch and give an honest review.

Supernatural Lacquer – The Devil Wears Spots (Reimagined)


Hi everyone! I just got some Supernatural Lacquer nail mail in last week and I hadn’t worn a glitter crelly in a long time, so for today’s manicure I chose The Devil Wears Spots (Reimagined).

This polish first came out in the Once Upon A Villain collection back in February 2016. In March of this year she re-released this collection, tweaking (or re-imagining) the polishes just a bit.

I did just order this last month, but looking today it is no longer available on the site. I do not know if she has plans to bring it back but you can check out her webstore HERE, I bet you’ll find something you’ll love! I also just got in and would highly recommend any of the “Ghoul’s”: Birthday Ghoul, Party Ghoul, or Living Dead Ghoul! I haven’t worn any of those, but from the bottles and painting my swatch rings, these all look gorgeous too!! I am not affiliated.

China Glaze Holiday 2018 – The Grinch Collection // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! I have another Holiday 2018 collection to show you today. This time it’s from China Glaze and guess what? There is not a creme finish in the whole collection! We have shimmers and ultra holo glitter and glass fleck and a glitter topper but not a single plain creme! I love it!

I actually found this collection at Rite Aid the other day! I’d never seen a new China Glaze collection there before but I had to clear out the whole display and buy the whole thing! This is another long post with a lot of photos!

EDIT: When I got this collection it wasn’t available at PolishPick.com but it is now! Check them out and tell them I sent you!!

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!

Polish ‘M – Ablaze // Fall 2017 Collection


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is another ‘new to me’ brand. I had a couple others from Polish ‘M but this is the first one I have worn. I just received this polish in a Mystery Grab Bag for a great deal! You can get 5 full size polishes for just $25 with free shipping! You can’t beat that deal! Somehow there are still some of these available on her website too (as of my writing this post)! You can find Polish ‘M HERE. 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!
