Cuticula | Candy Shop Collection

Press Sample of the CuticulaCandy Shop Collection It’s already been a busy morning/afternoon! The hose that connects the air conditioner to the window decided to disintegrate so I had to go find another one. Home Depot and Lowe’s didn’t have them, so we’re ordering it. Of course when it’s about to be in the 90’s we have to wait for a piece to come in. Today we’re starting off with the Cuticula Candy Shop Collection! The Cuticula Candy Shop Collection consists of 4 shades that can be 1 coat cremes or stamping polishes, a holo fleck topper, scented nail tape and a quick dry top coat. You can purchase each item individually but they will also be available as a full set. Lots of stamping going on in this post too! Let’s jump in and take a closer look. Cuticula | Push Pop Push Pop is a medium turquoise creme.…

Tonic Polish | Matte Brights Collection

Press Sample of the Tonic PolishMatte Brights Collection My plan today was to knock out several posts, and I’m on my second one so far. I planned to do more, but we discovered the bottom drawer of our freezer (that we never use) is a solid block of ice. So I spent the day defrosting the freezer in an effort to get that sucker free. Mission accomplished, and no broken nails. Yay! So, now that that’s done and I knocked out 2 loads of laundry… here I am to work on the Tonic Polish Matte Brights collection! This is a 6 piece collection of shimmery mattes perfect for Summer. For all of my photos I did both glossy and matte since I know not everyone is a fan of matte polish. If you’ve tried the Tonic Polish mattes before, the formula is no different for these. Easy to work with…

LynB Designs | June 2019 Release

Press Sample of the LynB DesignsJune 2019 Release I’ve been swatching away at some stunning new polishes coming our way and I have a new release to share with you today! We’re going to be looking at the LynB Designs June 2019 Release! My grumpy feeling has subsided a bit – we’re looking at a high of 77 today, and I’m so grateful. Within this post we’ll be looking at the Gemini release polish, the LynB Designs Facebook group custom as well as the Pleasant Peninsula collection. All 8 shades became available in the LynBDesigns shop yesterday. Let’s jump in! We’ll look at the Pleasant Peninsula collection first. There are some thermals here, and it was too hot to get them to stay in the “cold” state, so I mainly have transitions. Even the bottles were turning to warm state. LynB Designs | Mighty Mac Mighty Mac is a bright…

The Holo Hookup July 2019 | Festival Fun

Press Sample of The Holo HookupJuly 2019 | Festival Fun Time is just flying by! It’s time to take a look at The Holo Hookup July 2019 Festival Fun Box! As always, I’ll do a quick rundown for those new to The Holo Hookup! This is an all holographic box and each month it will have 3 constant indie makers in it – Glisten & Glow, DIFFERENT dimension and Cupcake Polish.  The guest maker this month is Great Lakes Lacquer! Each shade in the box has holographic elements of some sort in it. It may be scattered, linear, subtle or in your face, but an element of it is there. Some makers may incorporate other elements such as shimmer, glitter or flakes – but it will be in conjunction with holo. Let’s get this started! Cupcake Polish | Wildflower Child Wildflower Child is a bright fuchsia purple holographic with blue iridescent flakes. fine blue…
