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.

Heeeeeyyyyyyy! Very long time no talk. Long story short, I have had the pregnancy from hell. Severe morning sickness all through the first 6 months and now gestational diabetes. Needless to say, I have really missed doing my nails. Today I have a few polishes to show you from Don Deeva! I’m so excited to show you these. Let’s check them out 😊
Drizella Grid
Let’s start with Drizella. “Where are my prugly polish lovers at? This unique yellow green jelly polish is a stunner. Heavily loaded with original unicorn pigment and her sister UP. If you love OGUP you will need this in your life! You may just step over a sister to snag this wicked lady.” So perfectly said! This polish reminds me of apples. It shifts from green to red to gold like woah. I don’t think I captured the full beauty. I left this on for over a week and stared at it every day. Check the macro for the best color shift! I used 3 thin fabulous coats for my swatches. This polish will be $17.

Viral Outlaw Grid
Next up is Viral Outlaw. “This gorgeous multichrome polish is blown out with holo. A deep purple to denim blue base with shifts of silver and teal to rosey purple. So rich in pigment all you need is 1-2 coats and you’re done!” My go to polish is always purple or blue so you can imagine just how much I love this one. Definitely a 1 coater with an incredible formula. I used 2 coats for my swatches because its just what I do. This polish will be $13.

Slashdance is an “(American Horror story exclusive) A grey base with multi color UCC flakes, hot pink glitter hex and holo. (Week 2)”. Y’all!!!! This one is fan freaking tastic ❤ It shifts in soooo many ways. You will see it best in the bottle shots. I used 3 coats for my swatches but if you polish on the thicker side 2 should work just fine. This polish will be $13.

Lastly, we have When 2 Bechrome 1. “A highly pigmented multichrome polish  with heavy holo. This purple base with deep blue has shifts of gold and red.” This one is oh so good. In between the gold and red shifts there are peach and pink shifts. So gorgeous with the purple base. I could wear this one forever. This one is a solid 1 coater. Guess what? I used 2 coats! I know… shocking lol. This polish will be $13.

Ms. Sparkle ~ Flakies All Over The Place Collection

*Provided for review
Hey! How’s it goin’? Today I bring you flakies galore from the Dutch brand Ms.Sparkle!  This is a new to me brand and I am super happy to report that it was fantastic! Let’s check this quad out.
Fancy Flakies is a purple jelly base with holo sparkles, aurora pigments, iridescent flakies, ucc flakies, and holo ucc flakies. All of these polishes are very pigmented and full of stuff. Formula is also pretty much the same for all. Very smooth and very easy to work with. Even with all the flakies it lays completely even. I just love them so much. I thought this was going to be one of my top 2 but I was wrong. Just wait. I used 2 coats for my swatches.

To Flake Or Not To Flake is a cool red jelly base with holo sparkles, iridescent flakies, and ucc flakies. I love me a good red polish so very much. I thought this was going to be my top pick but again I was wrong. This is actually my third favorite of them all. It was really hard to pick favorites because they are all so effing good! This didn’t stain at all and I wore this for 3 days. It’s also very opaque so it’s really the ideal red. 2 easy coats for my swatches.

It has so many color changes to it. It really is my favorite green now. This one absolutely needs to be seen in person. 2 flawless coats for my swatches.

Who Do You Flake You Are? is a blue/green jelly base with holo sparkles, iridescent flakies, and holo ucc flakies. This one is my second favorite. It reminds me of a very colorful ocean bottom with clear blue waters. Like a jewel. This is another one you have to see in person to fully appreciate. There is just so much going on. It’s amazing because none of them are too busy. Absolutely stunning. 2 coats for my swatches.

Wildflower Lacquer ~ May Birth Flower

*Provided for review
Hello! Today Wildflower Lacquer has some new stuff coming to her shop. One of them is this months Birth Flower. This one is inspired by lily of the valley. Let’s see this beauty.
You’re Like Lily Pretty is a white crelly with green to gold  shifting shimmer, and copper shimmer, and lime to blue to green UCC flakies, and a scattered holo sparkle. This is really nice. I don’t usually care for white polishes but the flakies make me love it. Also, lilies are my favorite flowers. All types. The color of the flakies is just really fun. It almost looks like tiny gems on your nail. I used 3 thin coats for my swatches.

I know, I know. My art has lily pads… It’s all I had for lilies and we have all seen what my hand drawn art looks like.  Also not sure if those flowers are supposed to be lilies but they have 6 petals like a lily. As with each monthly birth flower polish, this will be $8.50 for the month of May then it will go up to $10. There is no reason to wait since you’ll be saving money on the polish! And it’s worth it. It’s perfect for this time of year and it’s just so very pretty. Hope you all have a fantastic day!! Links below ❤

Glisten & Glow ~ Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Polishes + Cuticle Oil Pen

*Provided for review

*WORDY!!

bcatrio

Hey guys 🙂 I am SO happy to be sharing this with you today! Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause I believe very strongly in. I have donated time and money when I can. But guess what? I have never personally known anyone who has had to deal with this. It seems crazy but it’s true. I honestly just believe that because I am a woman, my mom is a woman, my daughters are women, etc; we should all be supporting the cause. It is mostly a female issue so why not support something that can happen to anyone you love! Here is another thing you may or may not know: At the end of July, Jill’s mom Anne was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes.  The cancer was found at her yearly mammogram. They remain positive and hopeful for a cancer free future for her. Her form of breast cancer is aggressive and over the next year she will be receiving chemo, have surgery, and radiation. Fortunately, financially it will all be possible for her but for many women it is not. Jill and Anne created this collection to raise awareness of early detection, breast cancer in general, and to help women during this difficult time. 100% of the profits* from the sale of this collection will be donated to the Cancer Center in CT where she is receiving treatment and the donation will be earmarked for women who need financial assistance for treatments. We will be sharing the specific Cancer Center closer to launch and the donation will be publicly shown when the sale is completed. (*Profits are calculated less the cost of the ingredients to make the product, shipping and PayPal fees and promo discount codes.) I can only hope to do these babies justice for the both of them ❤ Let’s go!

Pink Is Stronger Than You Think is a light pink crème polish packed with pink and copper shimmer with a light dusting of holo. This one was a little streaky on the first coat. It totally covered on the second coat. This polish is super pretty and dainty, but for me it wasn’t the best G&G polish I have used formula wise. I’m sure a little thinner would fix it right up! I used 2 coats plus Glisten & Glow glossy and matte top coats for my swatches. Art was done using The Breast Is Yet To Come for the dry brushing and stamping, and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

Big Or Small, Save Them All is a medium pink crelly polish packed with blue, purple, and pink ucc flakies and a light dusting of holo. I ADORE this one! The formula is freaking fantastic ❤ This is my ultimate polish I think. Seriously wouldn’t change a thing! I used 3 thin coats plus G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used G&G Mother Fire and a black polish for the stamping and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-26.

The Breast Is Yet To Come is a dark pink/magenta sparkly shimmer. This one is almost foil like but not as foily. Know what I mean lol?! Absolutely perfect for the season and upcoming holidays. The formula was wonderful and went on smoothly in 2 coats. I used 2 coats and G&G glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. For the art I used Pink Is Stronger Than You Think and I hand painted the design using The Breast Is Yet To Come. I never said I was an artist lol. I am left handed, swatching on my left hand and doing art with my right hand…  This is why I stamp all the time!

It’s the weekend for most of you. For me, it’s Tuesday 😦 At least I have polish to make me feel better! Today, I have the Galaxy Mattes from Deb, owner of Honey Bunny Lacquer 🙂 It is a 4 piece collection of dark, shimmery, flakie, mattes. I think dark is in this spring. I have seen it quite a bit all of a sudden! Not complaining one bit ❤

Let’s star with Dark Side Of The Moon, for obvious reasons ❤ Or maybe I am too old??? Either way, phenomenal polish. Dark Side Of The Moon is a deep bronze base with blue/green/gold/bronze ucc flakes with a green/teal shift. OMG the depth of this is just wow! I used 2 coats with top coat and without. This, along with the others, are easily 1 coaters. I just like 2.

What one do you like best? I love these. They are super smooth for matte polish. No dragging or brush marks. The shimmer and flakes really stand out matte. If you want an even blingy-er look you can add top coat to really make the sparkle pop. No matter how you wear them, you will be very happy! Each full sized polish is $10.00 USD and is available now! I will leave the links below and don’t forget to watch my live swatches on YouTube! Have an awesome weekend ❤

                                                                             *Provided for review

          Hello people! How is your afternoon? Tuesday and Wednesday are the days off in this house so it’s then Ill be most quiet. Last night I painted my nails and I just felt I needed to share this amazing polish once again. Again?!?! Yep, I love this polish so much it needs its own post. You can see the original post HERE.

          Temporal Flux is a part of the Intergalactic Flakies Collection. They all share the same UCC flakies. Or Ultra Chrome Chameleon flakies. For this specific polish, the base is an off white creme with a holo sparkle. This polish will forever hold a spot in my top 5 polishes EVER!! For my swatch I used 2 thin perfect coats with top coat.

          I tried to add some stamping but it was not as opaque as I had hoped. It ended up being too much. Oh well, here is my fail!
