Maya Cosmetics Nail Lacquer Swatches and Review

Maya Cosmetics Nail Lacquer Swatches and Review Happy Sunday!  I have an amazing set of indie polishes set up today!  The lovely lady behind Maya Cosmetics asked me to review a few of her creations and I was more than happy to do so after seeing them reviewed on Things I Love At The Moment (which is also another blog you should check out!). I was sent 4 Maya Cosmetic Nail Lacquers to review and this is one talented lady!  Her Grand Opening was on October 4th of this year and I really hope she takes off!  The quality and uniqueness of these blew me away!  I had absolutely no formula issues on any of these 4 polishes and all of them spread nicely and evenly, even the chunkier glitters! Last Call: Last Call is perfect for those of you who aren’t into glitter bombs but still love a little sparkle!…

Go Pink Wednesday with Essie and butter LONDON!

Go Pink Wednesday with Essie and butter LONDON! It’s Wednesday and it’s still October, so that means another installment of Go Pink Wednesday in support of Breast Cancer Awareness! Today’s Go Pink Wednesday mani is Essie We’re In It Together with butter LONDON Fairy Cake sponged onto the tips.  I couldn’t think of any art to do last night and I was pretty worn out, but I do like the overall look of glittery tips, especially in the sunlight!  We’re In It Together is part of Essie’s Breast Cancer Awareness line (I picked up all 4 pinks) and butter LONDON Fairy Cake is part of their new Holiday line! Make sure you check out all the fabulous Go Pink Wednesday mani’s that all the bloggers participating did!  I’ll have another one up next Wednesday, so keep an eye out ;)

Girly Bits Apparition Swatch, Review AND Video!

Girly Bits Apparition Swatch, Review AND Video! Good evening!  Today I have a little extra something for my post!  A VIDEO!  It’s a quick one, but this polish really isn’t captured completely in a photo, so a video was added to help show it off. Today I wore Girly Bits Apparition over Illamasqua Prosperity.  Apparition is another polish from the Girly Bits Halloween Collection and it’s a beautiful addition to any polish lover’s collection.  Apparition is described as a clear base with off white hexes, squares and shreds, tiny little holo micro bars and opalescent hexes that flash a gorgeous violet, especially when layered over a darker lacquer.  Mainly I made the video (and by ‘made’ I clearly mean I just moved my hand around a little while Nick took the video) to show off small glimpses of the mini holo bar glitter and the flashes of violet from the opalescent…

NOTD: Girly Bits Boo-Berry Over Finger Paints Plum Startled

NOTD:  Girly Bits Boo-Berry Over Finger Paints Plum Startled Just a quick post tonight because I wanted to show off this lovely combo and I’m extremely tired! Here is the mani I was wearing today and I really liked it! I started off with 2 coats of Finger Paints Plum Startled which is a plum/grape jelly polish with glass flecks and micro glitter in it.  On it’s own its GORGEOUS!  Of course, I couldn’t stop there though!  I added 1 coat of Girly Bits Boo-Berry over it.  Boo-Berry is a  purple jelly chock-full of blue, purple, and fuchsia glitter of all different sizes.  Girly Bits Boo-Berry is one of the new colors from the Girly Bits Halloween collection and probably my favorite of the 5!  I topped this mani off with 1 coat of HK Girl top coat. Now I need to add this in because I was a little frustrated…
