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!

Moonflower Polish ~ November ’20 PPU

*This polish was provided for review. *Picture Heavy

Are we ready for this? I mean, it’s NOVEMBER PPU! November!! Christmas is right around the corner. Today I have for you Moonflower Polish‘s contribution to the theme Red Carpet. Nadia was inspired by Ariana Grande’s grey dress from the 2020 Grammy Awards. Here is the inspiration pic which I grabbed from google:

Silver Lining is a grey based holo base with a pink to red to gold shifting shimmer. To me this is antiqued silver. Such a gorgeous holo! I only saw pink shimmer. For the life of me I just could not catch the shift on film. It doesn’t matter really because the pink shimmer is strong and beautiful and it totally compliments the base. This polish is on the thinner side for Nadia’s usual polish. Even with a thinner base I was still able to stamp. And even better I still only used 1 coat. Lot’s of pics ahead!! I used 1 coat for my swatches. Price $12.50 Cap 100/US 5/UK.

What do you think? I think Silver Lining perfect for the season. I see my daughter stealing this from me in the very near future lol. Abi is obsessed with holo and darker polishes. This will definitely stamp better over darker colors but it will also work for lighter colors as well. The cap for this polish is only 100 for US and 5 for UK so make sure you have warmed up your ninja fingers! Polish Pickup will be open November 6th-9th only. Thanks for reading. Have a good night y’all.

Glisten & Glow ~ Cornucopia of Thanks Collection

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey y’all! It’s finally cooled down where I am and I couldn’t be happier! My favorite season is winter but fall is a very close second. I hope everyone is feeling well with all that’s going on in the world. Just remember there is always someone to talk to even if it be help lines. I’ll link some numbers below. For now let’s talk polish! I have the Cornucopia of Thanks Collection, which is a quartet of polishes that says thanks in different languages. Let’s have a look.

Bedankt (Dutch) is a light periwinkle creme polish. Definitely not your average fall color but it fits with this collection beautifully. My pictures lean a little blue for this one. It has the slightest purple hint that my camera just wouldn’t pick up. As always I’ll let you know what’s color accurate. Bedankt was a dream to work with. 2 perfect coats for my swatches. Price $10

Most color accurate

Danke (German) is a medium boysenberry purple creme polish. I really want to say that this one is my favorite but every time I get to the green it wins lol. This is a super close second though. Just look at the deep lusciousness. This looks fabulous on the nails. I feel like this would fit all skin tones. An all around perfect polish. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10

Gracias (Spanish) is a medium deep green creme polish with a touch of teal. Y’all. This polish looks as if an emerald and some jade were melted together. The color is just stunning. Probably my favorite new green. I could not wait to get this on and it did not disappoint! If you get only 1 polish here let it be this one for real! Jill’s creme polishes are always fantastic and Gracias was no different. 2 coats for my swatches. Price $10.

Spasibo (Russian) is a light pumpkin creme polish. I know it’s corny but I had to put pumpkins on this color lol. It’s the perfect pumpkin shade without being too bold. This one is super squishy. More like a crelly than a creme. An absolute dream to work with. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price $10

What do you think? Do you love them? The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection is the perfect fall set. Please, please, please come back and let me know what you picked up and what you think about Gracias lol. Must haves for sure. The Cornucopia of Thanks Collection will be available on October 9th at 7pm EST. Don’t miss them! Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Links below!

LevelUP Lacquer ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*This polish was provided for review

Hello! Home from my quick little getaway and I feel so refreshed. It’s amazing what 2 nights on the water can do for you. Anyways, I am back with LevelUp Lacquer‘s contribution for October’s PPU theme of animation! Let’s have a look at this polish inspired by water breathing (10th form) from Demon Slayer (Anime series).

Constant Flux is a medium blue crelly with a scattered holographic shimmer and white and iridescent glitters in multiple shapes and sizes. I love the way the iridescent glitters subtly flash through the base color. This polish was a little on the thick side but nothing you can’t work with! This polish can be worn in 2-3 coats or layered over a darker color. I used 3 coats for my swatches. Price $11. Cap: 250 US / 50 UK

with flash

I love Constant Flux. It’s something I have never seen before and it’s so very pretty. PPU will be open from October 2nd – October 5th. Don’t forget to add this unique beauty to your wish list! Links below. Have a great week y’all 🙂

Glisten & Glow ~ Oct. 2020 PPU

*These polishes were provided for review

Hey guys! Glisten & Glow is back for October’s Polish Pickup. If you haven’t seen the pics yet hold your hats. She’s a doozy! Polish Pickup‘s theme for October is Cartoon/Animation. Truly Outrageous was inspired by Jill’s fanatic love for Jem And The Holograms. Let’s have a looksie 🙂

Truly Outrageous is exactly that. Truly outrageous!! This polish is a burple jelly polish with various shades, shapes, and sizes of pink glitters. Pretty much the epitome of burple color. My pics do lean a little blue so I’ll make sure you know what pic is most color accurate. Truly Outrageous is so fun! The sparkle is fantastic and the depth is just awesome. And it’s SO squishy! I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow and I do believe this will be on my toes. I used 3 thin coats for my swatch plus glitter grabber and top coat. Price $12.50 Cap: Under 395 for both US & UK.

Most Color Accurate!

Before I show you my fun nail art, I want to tell you about Jill’s top coat. Glisten & Glow Top Coat is an award winning, fast drying, glossy top coat. After using this top coat your nails will be dry in 2-4 minutes or less and they will be durable and long lasting with days to weeks of no tip wear or chipping! It has a crystal clear, shiny/glossy, “wet/gel” like appearance. It seals and evens glitters and flakie polishes. It won’t smear your nail art and it glows under black light! Dang that’s a lot lol. I say this all the time but I have been buying this top coat since 2013 and I haven’t bought another brand since! I have reviewed but never purchased anything but this. It has my heart and my hands ❤ Price $7.50 Cap: US-230 UK-5

Polish Pickup will only be open from October 2 at 11am EST until October 5 at 11:59pm EST. Make sure these go on your wish list!! Have a great day! Links below 🙂

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

Hey y’all, I’m back. No house. Turns out it needed a new foundation and the seller refused to pay for it. So, for now we are just looking at apartments and will go back to house hunting in a year or so. I’m so sad. The location was EVERYTHING!! But that’s that. Hopefully in a few years we can look again in the same neighborhood. Since this is a review blog, I suppose should get to the reviews huh!? Let’s get to it.

Mystery Polish July 2020 is a bright blue crelly polish with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. To me this is just fantastic. Just look at that blue! It really makes a statement. I’m not always the biggest glitter fan but I absolutely had to have these few polishes. Jill’s crelly formula is as smooth as silk. They level out nicely on their own even with all the glitter. I used only 2 coats in my swatch video but I should have used 3. My pics are 3 coats. The white of my nail shows through without that last coat. Price: $10

Mystery Polish August 2020 is a teal crelly polish with black and black holo glitter in various sizes. Oh look! Another teal… I just can’t help myself. For real. It’s become an obsession lately! It just looks so good with my skin tone. This super smooth polish went on perfectly in 3 thin coats. Price $10

Mystery Polish September 2020 is a bright green crelly with black and black holo glitters in various sizes. I had to have this one because my birthday is in September. It turned out to be my favorite. This shade of green is just so fun and definitely eye catching. The holo also seems to be a bit more visible in this one as well. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches. Price: $10

Overall, I am super happy with this purchase! I have already worn the teal more than once and so has my daughter. It’s also on her toes as well as mine. Like I said before, obsessed. I’m not sure I have ever had a polish with a fill line in less than a week lol. If you are interested in any of these, the link to Jill’s shop will be down below. I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Sweet Heart Polish ~ December ’19 PPU

*Provided for review

Hello! How is everyone doing? Is your holiday shopping done? I haven’t even started lol! It’s been so busy around here. We have appointments related to the baby 2-3 times a week. We’ll get to the shopping eventually… For now, I have a gift idea for you! Let’s check out Sweet Heart Polish‘s contribution to Decembers PPU theme: Winter Is Coming!
You Sit On A Throne Of Lies “is a greige crelly base with gold flakes, taupe to green, blue to pink, and red to gold ucc flakes. It also has a copper shimmer with red and blue sparks that catch the light ever so slightly.”  This polis is inspired by the movie ELF where Buddy realizes that the store Santa is not the real Santa. Not gonna lie, I totally squealed when I saw the name of this polish. ELF is on repeat at my house until Christmas! Such a fun, family movie ❤ YSOATOL is the perfect holiday neutral polish. It’s got that wow factor but at the same time is subtle. I’m still wearing this mani right now. Super gorgeous. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches but you could totally use 2 normal – thicker coats. Formula was amazing. This polish definitely leaned more grey on me. It has more beige than my nail pics show. Check out the bottle shots for truest color. This polish will be $9.50 and will have a cap of 95 bottles for the US and 5 bottles for the UK.

Zombie Claw ~ Indie Positivity Exclusive

*Provided for review
Hi!! Are you a part of the Indie Positivity on FB? If not you totally should be 👍 Today I have an IP custom polish from Sabrina at Zombie Claw. I can’t wait for you to see this. It’s unique and so so pretty!
Candy Cottage is “a linear holographic rose pink base with pink-green-gold color shifting flakes, lime green to gold iridescent hexes with micro red, pink, purple, and blue glitters.” The colored micro glitters are the best part of this polish. They stand out on their own while totally complimenting the polish as a whole. Super impressed with this polish all around. Formula was smooth and easy to work with. I used 3 coats with glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Candy Cottage is $11 USD but everyone in the Indie Positivity group gets a $2 off coupon!! (Code can be found in the group!)

LE Polish ~ Polish Pickup February 2018

                                                                          *Provided for review 



Hello!! I have a new to me brand to show you tonight. So, this Polish Pickup thing is no joke! 50 or so bands participate each month 😳 If you are not a member of this amazing Facebook group, click HERE and join! For now let’s talk about LE Polish. What a fabulous introduction to a new brand of indie polish. And, Allison lives in CT like I do. In fact, I live where she grew up and she lives where I grew up lol! Seriously what are the chances. Anywho, let’s get to the polish.

The theme for the month of February is “Sugar Rush”. Allison grabbed her inspiration from this iconic Marilyn Monroe pic with bubblegum 💗 Pop! is a holographic base with pink to orange to gold color shifting flakies and lots of hot pink micro flakes. Seriously, a chameleon polish. It’s not intentional by the maker, but when I first got this on I thought it was copper and gold flakies in a holo base with micro red glitters and a blue flash. Yo… I was way more than wrong. At least I knew it was holo! Pop! has a fantastically smooth formula. I used 3 thin coats, for full coverage, and top coat for my swatch.

For the art I used OPI Hey, Baby and Winstonia Store stamping plates W112 &W105.

Pop! and all of the other goodies available from Polish Pickup will only be available from February 2nd-5th! Mark your calendars!! As of now, this polish does not have a cap! Make sure it’s on your list and your calendars are marked! This is only available for a few days so don’t miss it. Have a great night ❤
