Salon Perfect Naked Nutrients Collection

Press Sample I spent another weekend blazing through my swatch packages, so I have a bunch of stuff to share with you. First up we have Salon Perfect Naked Nutrients Collection. Last week I showed you the Salon Perfect Neon POP! Collection for Summer 2017, and today we have some palette cleanser shades. The Salon Perfect Naked Nutrients Collection isn’t just a selection of neutrals. This collection is all Keratin treatment based nail lacquer in a nice variety of neutral shades. They are advanced nail therapy lacquers formulated with Keratin proteins that bond with the natural proteins found in your nails already. They help strengthen and protect damaged nails, reduce nail splitting and peeling, as well as restoring lost moisture and promoting healthy nail growth. Now for full disclosure, I can’t tell you if they worked to strengthen or reduce splitting or peeling. While I wasn’t blessed with flawless skin, I…

Salon Perfect Neon POP Summer 2017 Collection

Press Sample It’s that time of year again! I have this years assortment of the Salon Perfect Neon POP Summer 2017 Collection to share with you! Altogether the Salon Perfect Neon Pop collection consists of 27 shades. Over the years (I think this is my 4th or 5th year sharing these shades?) I have had the chance to show a lot of the shades available. Some of these shades I have shown before, and some are new to me, and if I remember correctly – 6 of the shades I’m about to share are brand new to the high voltage neon lineup! If you want to see more, you can check out my previous Salon Perfect Neon POP shades. For all of these swatches I will be showing these shades on their own, no base color. If you wish, you can use Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, or another white creme,…

Essie Summer 2017 Collection

Press Sample Happy Sunday! The school year is winding down, so Jacob has been keeping me really busy this week.  I managed to get a few swatches done, with plans of getting a lot more done throughout today. First up is the Essie Summer 2017 Collection! The Essie Summer 2017 Collection consists of 6 polishes (which is typical of Essie) inspired by the sugary sweet indulgences of Paris.  When I received this collection I was really excited for the orange shade, Fondant of You. Let’s see if that ended up being my top pick though… Essie Baguette Me Not Essie Baguette Me Not is a pink toned lilac cream. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. I had some slight self leveling issues with this shade. Essie Sweet Soufflé Essie Sweet Soufflé is a little tricky for me. In some lighting it looks like an EXTREMELY pale baby…

OPI Summer 2017 California Dreaming Collection

Press Sample Tonight I have the OPI Summer 2017 California Dreaming Collection to share with you! I was excited when I saw the inspiration behind this collection since California is my home state. I’ve actually been to most of the places behind these polishes as well. Much like the Spring 2017 Collection, I was sent the collection in the Infinite Shine formula rather than the normal formula. Personally I prefer the Infinite Shine formula, but I do have to say a few of the shades in this Summer 2017 collection didn’t seem like the typical smooth Infinite Shine formula I’m use to.  However, I do find the application between the OPI Infinite Shine formula and the normal nail lacquer formula to be a bit different, so please keep that in mind if you choose to purchase these in the normal lacquer formula. My thoughts and experiences on these shades might differ from…

Press Sample I have some more neons for you! Here is the Orly Summer 2017 Coastal Crush Collection! This is a 6 piece collection that contains 3 neons, 1 bright, 1 shimmer fleck and a deeper shimmery shade. I fought with my camera a lot on this collection, but I’m happy to say that in the end – I won. Let’s take a look! Orly Summer Fling Summer Fling is a neon peach creme.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Orly No Regrets No Regrets is a neon magenta creme. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Orly Surfer Dude Surfer Dude is a neon orange creme. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Orly For The First Time For The First Time is a vibrant pink orchid creme. This is bright,…
