Bases Loaded Lacquer ~ Tooted & Re-Booted Offseason Collection

*These polishes were provided for review. *Picture heavy

Hello! Today I have for you the Tooted & Re-Booted Offseason Collection from Bases Loaded Lacquer. These creme polishes watermarble, stamp, and work beautifully in tons of other nail art. There is a lot to see so let’s jump right in.

Off To A Rocky Start is a greige creme polish. I don’t know if you know but Tara has some of the best cremes out there. This is my second time swatching for her and they make me swoon. Off To A Rocky Start has a khaki feel to it color wise. I loved it so much. I usually like bold colors but I really liked how fresh it felt to wear a color like this. If you polish thicker you can totally get away with 1 coat. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50

Stamped with Flashin’ Some Leather

Arizona Fall League is a medium dusty purple creme polish. This is the purple I have been wanting! I didn’t even know how bad I needed this until it was in my hands. It’s so perfect for fall. Formula, to die for. Just perfect. I used 2 coats for my swatches but, again, 1 thicker coat would absolutely work. Price $9.50

Stamped with TerraCAUGHTa Stealing

Flashin’ Some Leather is a camel creme polish. This one looked like caramel on my nails when I was outside. Such a fun unique color. Ugh, I can’t get enough of these fall colors!! And we haven’t even gotten to my favorite yet lol! As with the other colors, this could be opaque in 1 coat. I, as usual, used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50

Stamped with Arizona Fall League

TerraCAUGHTa Stealing is a terracotta creme polish. This leaned a little salmon on me. I love it either way. I definitely don’t have anything like it in my collection. If you haven’t noticed, I stuck with sweater art for this collection since it’s fall colors. Well, I inadvertently made the art on this remind me of watermelon lol. Another 1 coater if you polish thicker. I used 2 coats for my swatches. Price $9.50

Stamped with Bad Hops

Bad Hops is a green leaning teal creme polish. And here it is. This one is my favorite. It is just breathtaking. This was the only one I felt 100% ok using only 1 coat. Such a vibrant green. I am obviously on a serious green kick right now. I just really can’t have enough greens. Especially when they are this fantastic! 1 coat for my swatches. Price $9.50

Stamped with Off To A Rocky Start

Like I said before, This whole 5 piece collection is multi functional. Check out how beautifully they water marble!!

Did that make you fall even more in love? I hope so! Quick note: There are a few colors here that are VERY heavy on yellow pigment. This could cause some settling on the inside of the bottle and looking like UBS (ugly bottle syndrome). There will be larger mixing balls in the customer bottles so you should be able to shake most of that away. Easy peasy. Tara has tons of amazing polishes so when you go buy these make sure you check out the rest of her shop! This collection will release on November 6th at 9pm. DO NOT MISS THESE. Treat yourself early for the holidays if you have to. The Tooted & Re-Booted Offseason Collection is totally worth every penny and then some! If anyone wants to do bestie twin nails when you get these hit me up here in the comments or on Instagram! I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Zombie Claw ~ Zombi-Corn Collection

*Provided for review
*Picture heavy
I already know you love unicorns!! Am I right? If I am this post is for you 🦄 How about zombies? Pretty ones! Today I have for you the Zombi-Corn Collection from Zombie Claw Polish!! This collection has 3 bright pastel crellys and a flakie shimmer topper. Let’s have a look!

Maya Zombi-Corn is a “bright baby blue with unicorn pigment shift of pink, purple and red”. The shimmer is fantastic. I absolutely love the formula. It starts a little sheer but builds up in 3 thin coats. It is super smooth and even. And the labels! How cute are the labels? I always love the extra touches like this! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Pixie Zombi-Corn is a “bright pastel purple with unicorn pigment shift of pink, blue, green and red”.  The contrast between the shimmer and the base color is fantastic. Definitely my favorite of the 3 colors. The formula is the same as Maya Zombi-Corn. Totally a pleasure to work with. 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Baby Zombi-Corn is a “soft baby pink with unicorn pigment shift of blue, green and red”. Who doesn’t love this shade of pink? It’s just so feminine. Pink is also my favorite color so I may just be the tiniest bit biased. 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatches.

Solstice Zombi-Corn is a “white shimmer base with unicorn pigment shift of pink, purple red to green. Has 6 different colored flakes also”. This is mainly a topper but can be used alone as well. I love the versatility. I used it alone, over black, and over each color from this collection. I love it each and every way. I think over black is my favorite. Alone, I used 3 coats plus glossy and matte top coats. Over black and the other colors I used 1 coats plus glossy top coat.

And now for the water marbles. For both looks I used the 3 colors alone then topped with Solstice Zombi-Corn with glossy top coat.

So now that you have seen a million pics, I hope you love them as much as I do. The shifty shimmers do not disappoint! Each of the 3 colors will be $9 and Solstice Zombi-Corn will be $10. Or you can buy all 4 polishes for $32. The best news? These are already available so run to Sabrina’s shop and grab them up. Have a great day ❤

 

Glisten & Glow ~ Summer Livin’ Collection

*Provided for review

*Very picture heavy

Hello! The weekend is coming to a close but I have something to brighten the mood! Jill, owner of Glisten & Glow, has some amazing neons coming to the shop on June 22 ❤ If you follow G&G anywhere then you have already seen these. I don’t think it would hurt to give another look, though, do you? Didn’t think so 🙂 Let’s go!

The Summer Livin’ Collection has 5 crème neons that are opaque in 2-3 coats and need no white base. They stamp and watermarble like a dream. I have never seen a neon that doesn’t dry matte. These do not! They keep a little shine to them. It’s so neat.

BBQ & Ball Games is a neon yellow crème. Very good formula for a neon. Even better formula for a yellow!! 3 coats plus G&G top coat and G&G matte top coat.

Formula X ~ Infinite Ombre

Hello!! I hope everyone had/is having a wonderful Saturday! Gorgeous weather here in CT 🙂 And what am I doing you ask?! I am sitting here bringing you a nifty new Formula X Infinite Ombre nail kit! This kit was provided  for free from PreenMe and Sephora to test and create new looks with. Per the norm, I have swatches first! I was really excited to try this new trend in polish! These are supposed to be the more pigmented version of sheer jellys. The kit comes with 4 colors and a silver base called Platinum Prime. I do not have swatches of Platinum Prime because it was just your average silver metallic polish. If you would like to see a swatch just let me know in the comments and I will add it for you 🙂 The other four polishes were all the same amazing jelly formula. It was a step above a jelly though. Like a jelly+ polish lol. For each polish I did one finger that did not use the base. Either way I loved most of them. Have a look!

Infinite Indigo is an deep inky blue that leans slightly purple in real life. This is 2 coats over Platinum Prime on all but my index finger, all with a glossy top coat. The top coat was strictly for drying purposes because these have a wet shine look on their own!! The index finger looks almost blackened without the shine of the silver base. Love it both ways equally!

 Timeless Teal is a deep teal that looks almost like an emerald color in real life (ya know, cuz this is a dream lol!). This looks pretty streaky in pics but it didn’t to my eyes! This is 2 coats over Platinum Prime on all but my ring finger. That is 2 coats alone. All with a glossy top coat. Beautiful color!

Boundless Berry is a sexy bold red. I kept oohing and ahhing with every brush stroke! This one is a little more sheer than the first 2 because of its lighter color. I used 2 coats over Platinum Prime on all but my middle finger. That is 2 coats alone. All with a glossy top coat. I think this may be my favorite. So classic!

Limitless Lemon is my least favorite. Just not a huge fan of yellow unless its highlighter yellow or pastel yellow. This will be great for blending though. 2 coats over Platinum Prime on all but my pinky. That is 2 coats alone all with glossy top coat. Over the Platinum Prime it is a bright yellow. On its own it is very yolky looking. Like over easy egg yolk.

 
Overall, I love these! I can’t wait to play with these after my chores tonight! That’s right! I am 30 and I still call housework chores lol! Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!!
 
 
Hi! I am here to add on some recent looks I created using these polishes! I will be getting a new tripod next week so videos to come for all the looks I will be adding!
WATERMARBLE! They work wonderfully for watermarbling!

 
 
Next we have some advanced/reverse stamping. This is always fun with a beautiful outcome… but super time consuming. For me anyways. I don’t have steady hands at all!

 
 
The last 2 looks used all of the colors over a solid base of Platinum Prime. This next look uses only Limitless Lemon and Boundless Berry in a gradient over a stamped design using Platinum Prime over my bare nail. I really loved the look of this one!

 
 
 
Which look is your favorite and what would you like to see in a video?

She Nail Polish ~ Lyght

And finally the last of the 3 polishes i recieved to review for She’ Nail Polish. The name of this super awesome yellow is Lyght. This is also a very yellow polish without being neon or weird. Ya know? All 3 were very pigmented polishes. This was the only 1 of the 3 that had a round brush actually. The other 2 had flat brushes. Just another positive for this polish line. Although i loved these polishes i did have a little streaking issue. This is a creme polish but because of the streaking i put 2 coats over white. Just to help me hide my streaks a little lol. This one did take the longest to dry but again it wasnt terrible. I would easily reccomend these to anyone looking for something different. And i love that they watermarble nicely. Im happy!! Enjoy the pics 🙂

She Nail Polish ~ Leave Me

Hey lovelies 🙂 today i have 3 nail polishes sent to me by Rashetta, owner of She’ Nail Polish. The quote for the polish is awesome!! “Colors that brighten up any mood”. Its so true!! How many of you have been happier just from a unique wonderful color?? I have! Actually when i recieved these thats how i felt because the colors are beyond different. First i will say i LOVE a solid color indie. Im not really a huge glitter fan *gasp* i know…. Anyways i recieved 3 colors and imediately got a fall/70’s/watermarble vibe all at once! When i say 70’s thats good!! Im such a hippie lol 😀 so for all pictures i have a watermarble accent nail 🙂 The color here is called Leave Me. Its the perfect green for the holiday season!! I was pretty sheer so i actually put 3 thin coats over white. I did not however use any color underneath my water marble. The formula on the polish was wonderful. A streak here and there but super easy to fix and well worth it!! Also has a good dry time. Not super fast but you wont be waiting forever!! In all of these pics i am not wearing top coat. Didnt need it. Very shiny on its own. To the pics!! Enjoy 🙂

She Nail Polish ~ Burnt Orange

Hello!! Here is the second polish i swatched from She’ Nail Polish. This one is called Burnt Orange. I think this one surprised me the most. Its a jelly!! I had no idea. All of the polishes looked so pigmented i just assumed they were cremes. To my surprise only one was a creme. Again a super unique orange. Something i have been looking for for a while actually!! Its so orange without being neon or overwhelming. I did again put three thin coats over white. I didnt want a visible nail line and white shows pretty true color every time!! It did build up nicely. Such a squishy jelly formula!! I love that about it. Soooo doing a jelly sammich with this color!! For a jelly it dries pretty fast too. And it smooths itself out which is a nice plus. Sorry for the books lol. Now to the pictures. Again with the watermarble and NO top coat!! Enjoy
