Barielle - Purple Hearts

Hey!
I had to go looking through my pictures to find something for you today, because most of the pictures I've taken lately I'm planning for just before Valentines Day. Thankfully I had a few swatches I haven't used yet!
This is Barielle - Purple Hearts, I have a swatch of it over black and one over purple.



I don't know why I never showed this swatch earlier, I must have just forgot about it, but this is a stunning glitter. Barielle always makes such pretty polishes.

Also, I have my giveaway ready.. I just need to take a better picture of the prize (the lighting seems to suck in my apartment lately).

Lush Lacquer - Frosty

Hey
I'm sure you're wondering why I'm posting a Christmas nail polish when it's almost February.. but I just got this in a Holiday swap that was a little late coming to me. I wasn't sure if I was going to wear this, but we are having some terrible weather and it's a blizzard here, so this felt very fitting lol.





This is 2 coats of Frosty, it covered very well. I think this polish could work even though it's not Christmas... I mean why not use those Holiday polishes year round?

Rainbow Honey - The Sweet Talk Collection (Sweet Talk and XOXO)

Hey lovelies
Last week I got a surprising email from Rainbow Honey telling me they had shipped me The Sweet Talk collection to review, after reviewing their products last time I was super excited to get a chance to do this again. They mailed me 2 of the 3 polishes from the collection, and I couldn't be more happy with the 2 I got.

Let me start off by saying how adorable the package was, the boxes came wrapped in a cute little heart bag for Valentines day, and it suited the collection perfectly.


Now onto the beautiful swatches.

Sweet Talk - A milky white/jelly base loaded with pastel glitters, baby blue, lavender, light pink, and red with a soft pink shimmer. The formula was great, it covered perfectly in 2 coats and the glitter distributed evenly. I must say that I'm pretty much in love with this polish now and want to wear it everyday lol. It has my favorite things - glitter, white base, and pastels!




XOXO - A clear base loaded with holographic shimmer and tons of red/pink glitters. This is meant to be used as a top coat to go over any color, so I of course used it over Sweet Talk. I used 2 coats on my ring finger and then a slight gradient on the rest of my fingers. The formula was good on this one again, it was a little bit thicker (but that could be because I had no patience and just put it on fast haha).




Overall I'm really liking this collection, I can't wait to use XOXO over other polishes.
You can purchase these polishes as of January 25 on Rainbow Honeys website.. but wait, I also have a promo code for you all to save $5 on your order!

Seche - Collage Overlay

Hey
My fiancé bought me this polish last month, he saw it at a spa and had to buy it. I'm so glad he did, because it is just stunning and it's the first Seche polish I've seen!
This is a gorgeous glitter top coat with holo bar glitter and holo hexes. I swatched it over China Glaze -Spontaneous, and Secret Peri-Winkle.



I'm just so in love with this,  I can't wait to try it over other colors.

Have any of you tried polishes by Seche?

Polka Dots and Bright Colors

Hey lovelies
I promised you nail art, so today I have something really quick.. some polka dots! I didn't even think about what colors to use, I just grabbed a few and this was the outcome lol.
Polishes used: China Glaze - Lemon Fizz, Secret Peri-Winkle, Custom Kicks and Color Club - Coral Cascade.






I'm not too sure if I like the color combo, but I do like that it's bright and fun.. not a typical winter mani that's for sure.

What kind of nail art are you guys interested in seeing from me? I want to start trying new stuff out.

Julep - Ivy

Hey lovelies.
Today I have a swatch of Julep - Ivy. I got this polish has part of my December Maven box, and it's gorgeous. I love blues, and this reminds me a lot of Color Club - Sky High, only Ivy is a darker blue.




In the bottom picture you can kind of see the purpley/pink shimmer throughout.

I'm sorry for the lack of pictures here, it's been very hard trying to find a spot to take picctures in my new place lol.
I'm happy to be back to blogging though, and there's going to be a giveaway in the very near future so look out for that!
