LevelUP Lacquer ~ November ’20 PPU

*This polish was provided for review

Hey nail peeps. How was your weekend? Mine were just a bunch of days bunched together lol. My weekends are on Wednesday and Thursday. I did get some quality time with my girls though so that was really nice. Anywho, we have the November PPU coming up. Would you like to see what Ashley is bringing to the “Red Carpet”? Well for this inspiration it’s the purple carpet. Ash chose Taika Waititi’s red carpet look from Endgame. How freaking fancy right?! Let’s check it out.

Ragnarok & Roll is a soft light purple crelly polish with purple shimmer, black, white, and iridescent glitters in various sizes and shapes. This is such a delicate polish. The crelly formula is probably Ash’s best so far. And even better, this is her first polish using the new wide brush! What a dream. I absolutely loved working with this polish. You could get away with 2 thicker coats but I used 3 thinner coats for my swatches. Price $11 Cap 200.

Don’t you just love it? I love a soft purple this time of year. The pop of the iridescent glitter is such an added bonus. It’s always changing in different lighting. Polish Pickup will be open November 6th-9th only so don’t miss your chance for this beauty. Hope you all have a great week!

Glisten & Glow ~ Fall 2020

Hello! How are we all doing? I am fabulous! It’s 71 degrees out and all my windows are open. I love this time of year. The fresh air is just so perfect and refreshing. A perfect fall type day to bring you Glisten & Glows Fall 2020 trio! 3 gorgeous glitter crellies that are a little out of the norm color wise. On to the pics!

The Great Grape Stomp is a white based crelly with various shapes and sizes of purple, lavender, garnet, grey, and gun metal glitters. An absolute must have for any purple lover. The polish is nice and creamy. Glitter packed but not chunky. No need to fish for glitters as this has tons! The glitter colors all compliment each other so nicely. An all around pleasure to use. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Jack O’Lantern Blaze is the only color you might expect to see in a fall collection. It’s a white based crelly polish with various shapes and sizes of chocolate, yellow, and orange glitters. This screams falloween. Again, a super smooth polish filled to the brim with glitter. I think of s’mores and pumpkin pie when I wear this. 2 coats for full coverage. Price $10

Harvest Moon Skies is a white based crelly loaded with various shapes and sizes of navy, turquoise, grey, gun metal, and aqua glitters. This one is my favorite. The colors together are unique but so very pretty. I especially love the grey and gun metal glitter. Not a color I would expect at all but it totally works. As with the others, this is super smooth but glitter packed! 2 coats for my swatch. Price $10

Did you notice that all of my manis looked smooth? That’s because I used Glitter Grabber! After you put on your polish, allow it to dry fully then use a coat of Glitter Grabber before you top coat! Totally smooth! It is a miracle product that has many uses. Make sure you follow Glisten & Glow‘s FB page to see what people are saying. If you use glitter you absolutely need Glitter Grabber! Anywho, the Fall 2020 collection will be available for purchase on September 18th at 7pm EST. Set any alarms you have. You will not regret this purchase ever. I will have the links below! Have a great day y’all 🙂

Glisten & Glow ~ Summer Livin’ Collection Part 2

*Provided for review
Here we are again! This time I’m bringing you part 2 of the Summer Livin’ Collection. 1 crème and 3 neon glitter crellies! Let’s get to it.
Mini Golf & Margaritas is a neon blue polish. This polish is the best blue I own 💙 I also have this on my toes. Absolutely the perfect crème formula. 2 easy peasy coats. Could have been 1!

Bikinis & Boogie Boards is lighter neon blue glitter crelly with all neon glitters in various sizes and shades of  orange, green, yellow, and blue. How unique is this?! This reminds me of an orange or a peach tree on a clear summer day. This polish literally made my mouth water at first. The formula is a little on the thick side. Nothing a few drops of thinner won’t fix if you want it thinner. 2 coats for my swatches

Cotton Candy & Convertibles is a lighter neon pink glitter crelly loaded with all neon glitters in various sizes and shades of pink and purple. If you love neon and you are also a girly-girl, you need to own this. It is so sweet I just wanna eat it. It reminds me of a cotton candy frosting . So good! I used 2 coats for my swatches.

Snow Cones & Skinny Dipping is a white based glitter crelly loaded with all neon glitters in various sizes and various shades of pink, purple, blue, green, orange and yellow. This one is funfetti for sure. Super bright and fun. I love love love this one. Way more than I thought I would actually. This will be on my toes next! Formula was good but a tad sheer. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

Glisten & Glow ~ Babes & Blossoms Crellies

*Provided for review
Hey guys! Part 2 of this fabulous Babes & Blossoms collection. Today we are looking at the glitter crellies. These are all so fun and perfect for spring! Let’s see what we got.
Ducklings & Daisies is a white based crelly with grape, mint, baby pink, and
yellow glitters. I really loved the grape glitters in this. Super easy to work with. I actually think this is my favorite of the group! 2 easy coats for my swatches.

Lambs & Lilies is a white based crelly with bright blue, light pink, and peach glitters. This one is so soft. It almost looks like a pale blue base because of the glitters in it. I used 2 smooth coats for my swatches.

Chicks & Cherry Blossoms is a white based crelly with peach, melon, mint
and baby pink glitters. I hate when I have to do this. This one was just really patchy for me. It does build up but I had to be careful because it was a tad chunky. I used 3 thin coats for this polish. The glitters in this are very pale so they might be harder to see than the rest.

Piglets & Petunias is a white based crelly with turquoise, light grey, yellow,
and pink glitters. This is my second favorite! The mix of glitters is so perfect. This one screams spring! Formula was nice and easy on this one. 2 coats for my swatches.

All of the crellies were made to layer over the Babes & Blossoms crème polishes for a muted pop of color. You can pair them any way you like. There is no right or specific way to wear these. The Babes & Blossoms crellies were released on April 12th so you can go grab them right now. Don’t forget the cremes while you there. Each of these crellies will be $8.75 or buy all 8 polishes (4 cremes + 4 crellies) for $60. It’s a good deal so get them all 😀 Links below. Have a good day!

LevelUP Lacquer ~ April ’19 PPU

*Provided for review
Hi! How are you doing this fine evening? I just watched The Walking Dead season 9 finale. Disappointed is an understatement. WTH! I expected some type of action. Well, let me show you something that is the complete opposite of disappointing. LevelUP Lacquer is back for April’s PPU and Ash nailed it ❤ She was inspired by this famous work of art.
Love Without Limits is a classic white crelly with mixed black and red glitter and a scattered holo shine. Formula on this was great for a crelly base. Plenty of glitter so no fishing. The glitter also lays nice and flat. 2 coats would work but I did add a 3rd just because I’m me lol. Don’t forget that glitter polishes are harder to remove so to make it easier use a peel off base coat. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Please be easy on my art. We all know that I am not an artist!!
