Tonic Nail Polish Spring 2017 Collection

Press Sample Happy Monday! After today I have a full week off from work, so things will be busy around here. We have a lot of Polish Con offerings, Polish Pickup Shop shades, as well as Spring releases going on. I fell a little behind during tax season, but I’m making up for it! This morning I have the Tonic Nail Polish Spring 2017 Collection. I was originally going to hold off, but I forgot to upload other photos for collections I’ve done, so here we are. The Tonic Nail Polish Spring 2017 collection contains some vibrant colors with shimmers, shifts and a sprinkling of holo. Let’s take a look I Pink You Blue Me Off I Pink You Blue Me Off is a bright medium blue creme with strong pink to yellow shifting shimmer mixed in. I used 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Deep…

China Glaze Spring 2017 Spring Fling Collection

Press Sample It’s my 35th birthday today and I wanted to quickly squeeze in a post before we have cake and head to bed! Tonight I have the China Glaze Spring 2017 Spring Fling Collection to share with you! This 12 piece collection is a mix of finishes, but as you can see from above – there are a lot of the same color families throughout. We have a lot of neutrals, some peachy pink tones, blues and some metallic shades (ok I know metallic isn’t a color family, but whatever) Overall, I liked the colors within the collection. Some of the finishes aren’t my favorite but that’s completely a preference thing. The collection as a whole has some nice colors, but they are slightly subdued. In the bottles a lot look vibrant,, but they aren’t bright, in-your-face colors. Let’s take a look! China Glaze Blanc Out China Glaze Blanc Out…

KBShimmer Spring 2017 Nauti By Nature Collection

Press Sample Well, my son is staying the night at his friends house tonight, which means i had a chunk of free time to swatch a large collection. I think I did this at record speed too since I got all 12 polishes swatched, cropped and watermarked (and collaged) in about 2 hours. What collection am I speaking of? The KBShimmer Spring 2017 Nauti By Nature Collection! This is a 12 piece nautical themed collection with a nice mix of holographics, shimmers and glitter crellies! There weren’t any glitter crellies in the last collection,so I was really excited to see them make an appearance in time for Spring. This is going to be a fairly large post, so let’s get cracking. I’m also kind of tired, so lets hope I make it through the whole thing tonight! All of these photos were taken using KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top…

Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection

Press Sample Today I have the Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection to share with you! The Zoya Spring 2017 Charming Collection consists of 3 cremes and 3 shimmery shades(Zoya describes them as dewy micro sparkles). There are also 3 lipsticks for Spring (only 1 is a new shade though) and I’ll have that up in a separate post for the Zoya lipsticks! Let’s jump right in. Millie Millie is probably my favorite of the shimmers, and possible of the full collection. Millie is a fuchsia violet jelly like base packed with blue and violet shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Amira Amira is a soft dusty blue crelly base packed with gold and aqua shimmers, as well as gold microflakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Some of the shimmers in Amira were a little larger and…

OPI Spring 2017 Fiji Collection

Press Sample Tonight I have the OPI Spring 2017 Fiji Collection to share with you! OPI sent out the Infinite Shine versions of the Fiji collection, but from what I can tell they are the same as the normal lacquers for this collection. However, I do find the application can be different and I prefer the application of the Infinite Shines to the normal ones. The brushes are wider and overall I have less issues. The lovely Karen over at ManiGeeks has the lacquer version of the OPI Fiji Collection, so pop on over there and check them out for that formulation. I do find her and I to generally be in agreement on application. She will also have a comparison post up tomorrow Karen’s comparison post is up too, so check it out HERE. So if you want to see how these stack up to previous shades, make sure you take…
