Cult Nails - Dance All Night Collection

Hi there Girls and Guys!

I am super excited to show you what I have in store for you all today. As I'm sure you all know, I've been a huge fan of Cult Nails for a long time now. They were the first Indie brand I purchased about a year ago now and have continued to wow me with their colors, stellar formula and exceptional customer service. If I were to suggest a nail lacquer to anyone asking, Cult Nails would be at the top of my list.

So what to do when John and Maria contact me to review their gorgeous upcoming collection? Say yes of course!

The Cult Nails Dance All Night collection consists of 6 high quality lacquers. There are 3 perfect cremes and 3 stunning glitters, that together make one of the most cohesive collections I've seen from any brand, Indie or otherwise. As you probably know about me by now, I gravitate towards cremes while others tend to steer more to the glitters. I'm going to start with the cremes.

Faded is a beautiful light blue leaning gray creme.

*Swoon* This is the polish I didn't know I needed in my collection. Everything about it is perfection. <3

Polished by KPT Thermals - Blue is Beautiful and Camellia

Hey there Gals and Guys!

I have some fantastic thermals for you today!

I started following Polished by KPT a while back on Instagram and recently was lucky enough to have been asked by Katherine to do some reviews for her brand. Of course I said yes!

Lets get right to it shall we? Thermal polish changes colors based on the temperature. These particular thermals show the color under them when in the warm stage and show their true colors when cold. I'm going to show you each of these under different conditions. 1. At Rest - This is what the polish looked like when I didnt do anything to it. 2. Warm - This is the polish when dipped in warm water. 3. Cold - This is the polish when dipped in ice cold water. 4. Transition - This is the polish in transition from warm to cold or cold to warm.

To start off I chose a bright pink jelly thermal Camellia.

At Rest:

Because my nails are so short right now (:( grow nails grow!) i only got a little pink at the tips of the free edge. If they were longer, the whole free edge would likely have been bright pink.

Serum N°5 - Heartbreaker, April Showers and Forest Lights

Hi Gals and Guys!

I have some great glitters today. I don't have a lot of time (move is still eating my schedule) so I'm going to get right to it!

I first heard of Serum N°5 a while back and I ordered Day Glow for my collection. I love it and Victoria was a pleasure to do business with, so when she contacted me to do a review of some of her lacquers I was happy to say yes!

Victoria sent me these a while back before I even knew I was moving so I have 3 of the 6 here for you today and I'll have the rest next week.

First up is my favorite of these three, Heartbreaker.

Heartbreaker is a shimmering base with white hexes, black bars and pink and red hearts. I layered one thick coat here over two coats of Cult Nails Devious Nature. I had no formula problems, though I did have to fish for the heart glitter a little. I didn't mind much though, since that is pretty normal for larger glitter.

The collection includes the following polishes:
Nakizzle's Shizzle - We made several custom blue polishes for NY Fashion Week's Le Smurfette Show. I brought all the blue's home and when my daughter saw one of the blue lacquers, she grabbed it and explained, "Now that's my Shizzle!" After we had a good laugh and explained what Shizzle stands for, we knew we had to include it as part of the Cult Nails Lacquer line. It is a bright take on a traditional pastel blue. It dries to a high shine creme finish.
