*Provided for review

blackfridayduo

It’s that time of year!! Even if you don’t leave your house, chances are that you’re already making your Black Friday shopping/wish list. I have tons to show you this week so let’s jump right in with Jill’s Black Friday Duo!!

 

T-Day Turns To B-FriYAY! is a medium heathered teal crème based linear holo with red/blue/purple ucc flakies, bronze/red/copper ucc flakies,red/blue/pink unicorn shimmers, and a light dusting of silver galaxy holo microglitters. It sounds like tons but it all goes together perfectly. These 2 polishes might have the best G&G formula I have used yet. If you polish thick enough these could easily be 1 coaters. I used 2 immaculate coats plus Glisten & Glow glossy and matte top coats. As for the art, I wanted to do sweaters 🙂 Black Friday is definitely always at least sweater weather ❤ This polish will be $11 USD.

$hopping Is My Cardio is a light heathered purple crème based linear holo with blue/purple ucc flakies, bronze/red ucc flakies, a strong red/blue/pink unicorn shimmers, and a light dusting of silver galaxy holo microglitters. It seems like I say this a lot lately, but this is now in my top 10 polishes. This has every single thing I love in a polish ❤ It’s just rainbows on rainbows without blinding you!! I am wearing it now and I just can’t get enough! Like I said above, the formula is absolutely flawless. 2 thin coats plus G&G glossy and matte top coats. The art sticks with the sweater theme. This polish will be $11 USD.

LevelUP Lacquer ~ Holiday 2017

                                                                       *These polishes were provided for review

Yay! It’s my Friday!! Which I will use to work because it is a super busy week! On Thanksgiving, I am making the whole shebang at my house. Then, we are transporting said feast to my mother in laws house. AND SHE DOESN’T KNOW! All the kids are grown and have other plans and my father in law will be hunting. She thinks she will be all alone on Thanksgiving. We just don’t do that in this family so we are bringing Thanksgiving to her. We may make her cry… for all the right reasons ❤💗 While on the topic of food, let’s talk polish. Make sense, right?!


LevelUP Lacquer has a 5 piece Holiday collection and each polish is inspired by something off of the Holiday menu! Each polish will be $8.50 + shipping. For the holiday sale, you will be able to get 25% off of these babies. Let’s check them out!


Candy Canes is practically edible! (PLEASE DON’T EAT THE POLISH)!
It really looks just like a candy cane! It is a white crelly/crème base with small and medium red hex glitters and a red flash. I used 3 thin coats plus top coat, but 2 thicker coats will work if you prefer.

The second polish is Strawberry Champagne. This one is a pinky, foily, gold with red and gold micro flakies! This is the perfect polish for someone who likes nude polish. It has just enough flash to make a statement but it’s totally wearable in a meeting! I used 2 coats plus top coat.

Sugared Gumdrops is a glitter polish that is mostly opaque in 3 coats! If you use a sponge to apply your glitter this will be full coverage. I brushed on each layer to keep the squish! SG is a clear base with mini silver flakies ,and medium green and lime transparent glitters. Pretty sure I see mini holo flakies as well!! SG in 3 coats plus top coat.

Hot Chocolate; this is a staple for the holiday season! I like to use my homemade marshmallows when I have a mug. Sooooo yummy!! This polish has a creamy chocolate colored base with subtle shimmer, white hex and square glitters. For this one I used 3 thin coats plus top coat but 2 thicker coats will also work just fine!

My favorite one in this set is Cranberry Sauce! She is a stunning cranberry colored linear holo with color shifting iridescent glitters. Everyone should have this polish. It captures cranberry sauce(the food) so very well! I used 2 smooth coats with top coat.

Don’t forget, These polishes will be available on Black Friday!! I hope you love these as much as I do ❤  Have a great day 😊 





Creative Cuticles Nail Polish ~ Nothing Good

                                                                                 *I bought this

          Happy Friday peeps! How was black Friday shopping for you? I hope you got amazing deals. Like I said in my last post, I only got to buy 1 thing. Well, 2 really. Then it ended up being 4! I bought a polish and a charm and I got 2 polishes and 2 charms. My Dallas Cowboy star came with a little football so I am super happy about that. 11-1!!!!! Then I got BF16 free with my purchase of Nothing Good. If you keep reading, I may have something for 1 lucky person…

          So, Nothing Good is the polish I chose because I need all the Cowboy blue colored polishes!! It matches the charm perfectly too! Nothing Good is part of the After Midnight trio. It is a deep blue jelly with dark purple ultra micro glitter and holo. For me it was very hard to capture the purple glitters. The dark jelly over powers them a little and just makes them look blue. Either way a gorgeous mix. I used 2 coats and was completely satisfied with coverage. In the pics there is a slight visible nail line. I couldnt tell in real life. You could make it fully opaque with 3 coats but I dont really think its necessary. To the pics!

I added that last picture because there was a comment in the CCNP facebook group that someone had some polish staining. The polish was Melissa not NG!. Now, I am in NO WAY trying to call this person out or call her a liar. Everyone has a different body chemistry and some things work differently on some people than others. This is just MY experience. I had this polish on for about an hour with taking pics and doing art. I use 1 coat of Yellow Stopper as a peel off base coat for swatching. After peeling pieces of the polish off, there was not any staining at all. I only wanted to bring this up because Kayla is the most diligent indie polish maker I have dealt with. Her testing is always super extensive. Feel free to ask her any details. She is always super sweet and attentive. Now, about that thing. I have a brand new bottle of BF16 that I would love to give to a deserving person who missed out on this limited edition polish. Please leave me a comment below and let me know if you were not able to get BF16 and why you think you deserve it. Please dont comment if you do have it. I want to send this to someone who will never have the chance at this polish. You have 1 week. I will pick a winner next Friday/Saturday. As always links are below! Have a great weekend!

Creative Cuticles Nail Polish ~ BF16

                                                                                   *I won this.

          FRIDAY!!! You have exactly 1 week until Black Friday! I have plans to buy 2 things. First thing is a new laptop! Seriously, this tiny Acer sucks! The second is a new polish from CCNP. I have a good idea on which one but you know how it is… Kayla has some serious awesomeness for Black Friday. Get 50% off of any purchase when you buy 2 or more items using the code: CCNPBF16!! Charms and polish are included in this sale. Also get a full sized bottle of todays featured polish for free!!! Please check HERE for the list of polishes available on Black Friday. Are you ready to see your freebie?!?!

          I was super excited to win the chance to swatch a polish that can never be bought. I mean, how neat right?! As far as indie polish that I have bought myself, CCNP is my most owned. Its really only like 10 lol but 1 income yada yada. Either way CCNP is my indie weakness. Not to mention the amazing sales Kayla always has. Ok ok, I have talked enough! Get ready for some serious pic spam 🙂

          BF16 starts with a purple shimmer base. Add some micro holo glitters and micro charcoal flakies and BAM! Perfection in a bottle. While searching for a base color for this polish I fell in love with so many colors so you will see them all. They are all solid creme polishes because I dont want any shimmer or holo from my base to interfere with the topper. Every swatch is 1 coat of BF16 over the base color with top coat. Formula is amazing! Drum roll please……………………………………
