Dollish Polish Swatches!

Published

on

Happy Saturday! Hope you’re all having a good weekend so far! Today I have some polishes from Dollish Polish to show you guys. Dollish Polishes are custom frankens available on etsy. It’s kind of amazing how many awesome polishes are being made by bloggers and/or nail polish fanatics and being sold on etsy…if you’ve never searched etsy for nail polish you are missing out! I really love what Dollish Polish is doing, not only are the polishes gorgeous but I am loving the name and themes of the polishes! My new favorite polish of all time in here in this post.

Aurora Australis is a color changing top coat in a clear base. The flecks of shimmer in this flash purple, pink and a goldish orangey color. I love a good multichrome and the ability to layer it over whatever I want. I’m looking forward to trying this over a variety of colors!

Cold Winds Are Rising is a gorgeous grey with icy blue glitter mixed in. There is beautiful blue hex glitter in here but I was having problems getting it out of the bottle, only the smaller blue glitter wanted come out to play I guess ūüôĀ This was actually the second time I wore this and the first time I got a lot of the hex glitter (and of course took no photos lol). It’s a really gorgeous mix that I love! The formula was nice on this one, a little on the sheer side but I think it needs to be that way so that you can see the glitter.

Dark Passenger is a gorgeous blurple metallic shade. I wanted this one soley for the name…I am a HUGE Dexter fan, luckily the polish is pretty great also! In the bottle it looked very purple but on the nail it leaned more blue with a royal purple flash. You can see the flash in the second picture below, it is a lot more noticeable in person. Formula wise I didn’t love this one it way on the very thick side, despite that it was easy to apply. I think a couple drops of thinner would fix it right up!

Expecto Patronum is a milky white jelly with blue glitter and a subtle shimmer. I love love love this one, sometimes I feel like wearing white polish but decide not to since it can look like white out…next time I get that urge I will be wearing this. The glitter is very subtle but just perfection in this white jelly base. I really adore the subtle shimmer in the white also, you can’t see it in my pictures very well but in person it just made this polish even better. The formula was a little sheer, as expected, but for a white jelly it was pretty great!

Scarab is a gorgeous mix of¬†Green, Blue, Gold, Black and Chestnut glitter in a clear base. This polish is actually part of a collection on Dollish Polish, the Valley Of The Kings Collection. I thought this might be opaque on it’s own but after 3 coats it wasn’t so I decided to take it off and layer it. I have it over Orly You’re Blushing, I think it would look pretty amazing over a dark blue or black also!

Toxic Avenger is a multichrome linear holo. Think Ozotic Mish Mash polishes on crack. This sucker is a bazillion times better than the Ozotic multichrome holos. The holo in this is super noticeable, even inside you can tell it’s holo. The multichrome flashes green, pinkish purple and gold. This is my new favorite polish of all time, that is how much I love it. I’ve worn this twice already and will probably be putting it back on next week haha! I also got really great wear on this, I had it on for 4 days with no top coat it had no chipping and only minor tip wear! You may want to double up on base coat with this, it did cause a little bit of staining on me. Also just wanted to mention that the holo was a bit stronger in real life, it’a always hard to capture on camera!

Dollish Polish is available from¬†http://www.etsy.com/shop/DollishPolish, the polishes are super¬†affordable¬†ranging from $7.50-$8.25 for a full sized polish. You can also buy mini bottles for $4. Toxic Avenger is sold out right now…are we¬†surprised…no! No worries though, it should be back around 2/6! In addition to making great polish you can also buy hand painted nail tips and nail art supplies!

Color Club Wicked Sweet Collection Swatches

Published

on

Good Morning guys!¬† Hope you all had a good weekend, mine was boring…I guess that’s good? haha

Today I have for you guys swatches of the first of 2 summer collections Color Club has put for this year. This one is called Wicked Sweet. All of the polishes in this collection are scented, and there are a couple interesting combos, color wise. I have heard that this set is already popping up at Ross and is also available on some etailers like Transdesign.com and VictoriasNailSupply.com (my 2 favorites!)

First up Is Get Your Lem-On. This one was pretty sheer, but the color is fab. I don’t have anything dupey in my stash. It’s a bright highlighter yellow with a green shimmer. On it’s own I needed 4 coats for okay opacity, I could have used another but I’m not down with doing 5 coats of polish lol. I also have it layered over white on my ring finger in the pictures below. Over white I only needed 2 coats, awesome! The only downside to layering it over the white is that it seemed to kill that awesome shimmer, you could still see it but it wasn’t very noticeable ūüôĀ Get Your Lem-On smells like….you guessed it, Lemon Candy.

The Lime Starts Here is a bright neon green, I do like this color but it’s nothing new we haven’t seen before.¬† The formula was just okay, for a neon it did well, no dragging bald spotsI Always Get My Man-Darin is a bright orange packed with shimmer! I have a lot of orange in my stash, but again nothing like this one. The formula on this was pretty much exactly the same as Get Your Lem-On, very sheer. On it’s own I used 4 coats and 2 coats over white on my ring finger.

Saturday Spam: Lynnderella

Published

on

Hi guys, hope you’re all having a good weekend so far…I sure as heck am, more on that tomorrow! Today I have a big helping of spam for you….this spam is all Lynnderella! I’ve been waffling on posting this because for the past few months Lynnderella=drama. The drama associated with it turns me off the brand so I had decided not to post pictures of what I have. Then I kind of tested the waters in my¬†Indie spam¬†post with 1 Lynn polish and everyone liked it, so I decided what the heck I’ll just post everything I have that I haven’t shown before in one post. Hope you guys enjoy!

If you want to buy Lynnderella polishes it’s a bit of a process…you have to send in a wish list to Llarowe then wait for your last name to come up in her rotations. I think the 1st rotation of wish lists is still going on so depending on your last name you could be waiting for like 4-5 months, it wasn’t too bad for me but I know some people are frustrated with the wait. I know the waiting sucks but I do like that at least you get everything you want eventually. It’s worth it just to avoid the mad dash of trying to get things before they sell out in .5 seconds during re-stocks. Right now Llarowe is not accepting wish lists but last I heard she would be taking them again soon-ish.

Alright guys…I’m just going to tell you what I layered these over (for most of the polishes) instead of writing a little novel about each! Hope ya don’t mind!

Boy Girl Party over Zoya Ginessa. FYI there is diamond shaped glitter in this…LOVE!!

Very Pretty Vampire over OPI Black Onyx. I actually really don’t love this combo but I was losing daylight so I couldn’t re-do it. My favorite way to wear VPV is over purple!

piCture pOlish New Collaboration Shades: Siren Song, Geode, Douceur & Imperial

Published

on

Hi guys! Today I have 4 of the 5 new collaboration shades from piCture pOlish to share with you! These were released a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t wait for them to show up at my house. I always love the collaboration shades, it’s fun to read the posts of the girls who created the shades plus I usually feel like these are shades I want too but don’t already own.

Douceur is a light nude/beige base with fuchsia glitter mixed throughout. This was a collaboration with¬†Tartofraises¬†somehow I had never heard of her blog but since getting her shade I’ve been over there looking through her posts and she does really beautiful nail art! To read her post about the shade check out her blog¬†here.¬† The formula was good, it was more opaque than I expected it to be and it wasn’t streaky at all.

Imperial is a super vibrant purple with a heavy blue shimmer and gold glitter. This is a collaboration with Jeanette of¬†The Swatchaholic. I was so excited to see this one, Jeanette is a blogger that I’ve become friends with over the last couple years and I had no doubt that if piCture pOlish ever collaborated with her it would be gorgeous. Well, let me tell you Imperial is insanely gorgeous…this is one of my favorite collaboration shades ever and will most likely be a favorite for 2013 for me. I wore it all of last week and was sad to take it off.

Imperial is super vibrant, more so in real life than it appears in photos, I’m also dying over the stunning blue shimmer in this. I loved how the shimmer was visible in the sun and didn’t disappear in the shade.¬† If you want to read about how Jeanette came up with Imperial and see her beautiful photos of it check out her blog¬†here. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque…I had no issues with application. This does dry a bit matte due to the neon pigment in it.

Siren Song is a sea foam green with a silver flecked shimmer. This is a collaboration with¬†Rebecca Likes Nails. This shade was inspired Fender guitars & bass guitars by Mark & Tom from Blink 182. Ah yes…now that’s my kind of inspiration I love me some Blink 182 and have seen them live several times throughout the years…even stood in like for like 6 hours about 10 years ago to meet them (now I feel old btw). I love the shimmer/glitter in this. It’s bigger than shimmer but smaller than micro glitter…it’s interesting! To read more about the inspiration and naming of Siren Song check out Rebecca’s post¬†here. The formula was good, it was a bit streaky on the first coat but perfect with the second coat.

All of the new Collaboration shades are available on the piCture pOlish website, along with at their network of etailers all over the world like Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Nail Polish Canada. For a full list of etailers all over the world check out the piCture pOlish website here.
