Six SinfulColors Summer 2015 Shades Plus Appliques Swatches & Review

Press Sample SinfulColors Summer 2015 collection brings us 29 vibrant polishes, 6 glitters and appliques.  Several of the polishes are familiar, but there are a couple new ones scattered in. I have  of the shades, 2 Pinata Blast Glitters, 1 Graffiti Bomb Glitters and a set of Appliques to show you! Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom is a shimmery metallic pink.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos, but it was still a bit on the sheer side. Keira Blue Keira Blue is a a shimmery blue.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos, but some VNL is still visible, so this one is a bit on the sheer side as well. Sky Tree Sky Tree is my favorite of the new shades!  This is a beautiful green leaning teal with blue glass flecks.  I used 2 coats for these photos. Baila Baila Baila Baila is a glitter top…

ORLY Color Blast Disney Belle Collection Swatches & Review

Purchased by Me Back in February I swung through Walgreens to pick up the ORLY Color Blast Elsa collection, which was the Frozen inspired set.  I was fine with that collection and felt a lot of the colors were a good match. Now ORLY Color Blast has released a Belle collection which is inspired by Beauty and The Beast which is probably my second favorite Disney movie (first being The Little Mermaid) and I picked those up as well. Before I get into photos, I’m going to go ahead and say what a ton of people have said about this set. It does not properly represent this Disney classic.  At all. If you were to ask me what colors I think would represent Beauty and the Beast, you would need a gorgeous yellow for Belle’s dress and a rich blue for Beast.

imPRESS Press On Manicure Review

Press Sample Today I have something a little different on the blog today.  I was sent an imPRESS press-on manicure kit to review. There was a time, before I blogged, that I had acrylic nails.  I had acrylics for at least 12 years, possibly 13 or 14 years, it’s kind of a blur.  But for the last 3.5 years I have only featured my natural nails on my blog.  Because my natural nails are strong, press on nails were never something I looked at. I decided to try these out and post about them because I do know there is a market for them.  There are a lot of ladies who use press on nails for a night out, a special occasion or because they want longer nails, but their natural nails aren’t cooperating with this plan. When I was growing up, I remember seeing similar kits from various brands, but…

China Glaze Summer 2015 Desert Escape Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample I have the newest offerings from China Glaze to show you tonight!  This is the Summer 2015 Desert Escape collection.  While Electric Nights showed us the vibrant and neon shades, this one tones it down just a bit, but a few colors still pack a bit of a punch. This is a specialty collection and isn’t available in the normal places you can find China Glaze, so read on to the end for purchasing information. Meet Me In The Mirage Meet Me In The Mirage is the lonely metallic shade in the collection.  This is a medium rose gold metallic.  I used 2 coats for these photos and was rather thrilled that there were very minimal brush strokes. Don’t Mesa With My Heart Don’t Mesa With My Heart is a fun and girly bubblegum pink with the slightest hint of lavender.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos…

Zoya Summer 2015 Paradise Sun Collection Swatches & Review

Press Sample Happy Sunday!  Ready for some Zoya Summer collections?  I know everyone has probably seen them already, or even received your own if you ordered them, but I just got mine Friday so I hurried to do them! First up is Paradise Sun which is a collection of 6 shades with small glass flecks throughout them.  If you aren’t into the glass fleck look, then the other Zoya Summer collection, Island Fun, might be more for you.  That should be up tomorrow. Lets take a look at these 6 shades. Zoya Oceane Zoya Oceane is a blueish turquoise metallic with tiny glass flecks mixed in.  The finish is different on this one and I’m not 100% sure I like it.  I love the color of the polish (which has a touch more green in it than my camera would pick up) but the finish is different than I’m use…
