Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection Swatches!

Published

on

Hi guys! Today I am super excited to share these 4 polishes with you, it’s the Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection! A little while back I saw a swatch of Sweets Way and fell in love. I somehow talked myself into only getting 1 of the 4 polishes so I waited until they were actually in store at Sephora and not just online so I could decide which to get. When my local store got them in last week I went in and bought them all, self control be dammed (I mean really, you guys know me who was I kidding about only getting 1 of them LOL). The Sprinkles Collection is 4 milky glitters, they are perfection and I’m glad I justified needing all 4 to myself. I have to tell you guys, I think Nails Inc might be my favorite new to me brand of 2012. They keep churning out awesome polishes, between these and Baker Street I am kind of blown away by how much I am loving Nails Inc. I’m so glad they finally came over the US!

Formula wise these were consistent across the 4 polishes. They were all fantastic, I was expecting them to be thick and goopy due to the amount of glitter but it wasn’t the case at all. They went on easily and the glitter coverage was great. All 4 were opaque in 2 coats! Color me impressed guys, I would have liked them even if they had a crappy formula but the fact that they are gorgeous and the formula is great is a welcome surprise. All of these did dry with texture, to get them completely smooth you will probably need a couple coats of top coat. I used 1 coat of top coat and could still feel a tiny bit of texture from the glitter once it was completely dry.

Sugar House Lane is a tan/nude base with black and silvery white glitter. Ahhh, it’s amazing. Kudos for using black and white-ish glitter….how very indie of Nails Inc haha! I thought this might look not so great on my skin tone but it ended up being very flattering on.

Sweets Way is a milky white base with pink, blue and silver glitter. Can we see now why I was like OMG I NEED THESE RIGHT THIS SECOND the first time I saw a swatch of this polish? If you only get one of these this would probably be the one I pick. While I was buying these I was chatting with a few of the girls who worked at Sephora and this was the favorite among them also. You know what’s funny is that usually when I go to Sephora the girls there are clueless about anything polish related but they ALL knew about these and were just as excited as I was about them!

Topping Lane is a pink base with reddish pink, blurple (nails inc says purple, it looks blue to me!) and silver glitter. Out of the 4 this is the only one I liked in the bottle more than on the nail but it’s still great!

Overall I love these, my #1 must have is Sweets Way but really…all 4 are great and I’m glad I ended up getting them too!

The Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection is available now! If you are in the US it is both online and in stores at Sephora. If you go into a store and can’t find them I would suggest asking if they have them in the back…they had to go grab them out of the back for me! If you are not in the US check out http://www.nailsinc.com/ to buy online or find a store near you if you are in the UK!

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 🙁 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 LlaroweHarlow & Co and Nail Polish Canada. For a full list of etailers all over the world check out the piCture pOlish website here.
