Cult Nails All Access Collection!

Hi There!

I am back again today with another wonderful review! This is one I've been waiting for a while for. Today I have for you the fall collection from my favorite brand Cult Nails. I've been seeing sneak peeks of the All Access Collection from Maria on her Instagram for a bit now and I'm so glad to finally have them in my hands!

Lets get right to the photos!

First up is one of Cult Nails signature cremes Wack Slacks.

Wack Slacks is a beautiful dusty blue creme that sometimes looks more cornflower blue and sometimes looks brighter. I love the depth to this color so much!

My First Foray Into Liquid Sky Lacquer

Hi Again!

I have a whole slew of posts coming up for you all but this is one of my favorites in the works. I was offered some review polished from Carolyn of Liquid Sky Lacquer and when I got them I loved them so much that I ordered 3 more. I have all 9 of them here for you tonight! Please be prepared, this is a very image heavy post. There are quite a few thermals which tend to be picture heavy on their own plus a bunch of holos.

Ready to see? Lets get started!

First up is the beautiful Blue Daiquiri

Blue Daiquiri is a beautiful teal to blue thermal polish with a gorgeous gold shimmer. This pretty teal color is the warm stage of the polish and probably how it would be most of the time on the nail.

Stardust Polish HOLOS!

Hi there ladies and gents!

Tonight I have a beautiful few lacquers for you from a new to me brand Stardust Polish. Of course, you all know I love the name ;)

These three lacquers are all holographic to some extent, whether is is very slightly or very strongly, but I'll let the photos do the talking or me eh?

First up is my favorite of the three, Yes Your Majesty.

Yes Your Majesty is a gorgeous cherry red holo jelly that I fell in love with the moment I put it on. It reminds me of candy apples and fast cars.

Incoco Nail Polish Appliques

Hi All!

I have a different kind of post for you today. I was approached by Incoco and asked to review some of their Nail Polish Appliqués I have only tried polish strips once before and it was by another company. That experience was bad enough that I ended up returning the product. So I was super happy to get the chance to try some appliqués from a company who specializes in them.

Incoco sent me two sets of strips to review for you today. The patterns I chose were Rock Out! and Urban Jungle. Here are the supplies I used to apply the appliqués.

Incoco Nail Polish Appliques, a rough file, a fine file and a rubber tipped cuticle pusher.

Born Pretty Store 3D Nail Art Items

Hi there!

Sorry for the delay, it was already crazy around my place between giveaways and Monsters and my Etsy shop and all the wonderful reviews I've been sent.

Then on Thursday night I broke my foot. Long story short, I stepped on my cat's tail and when I tried to get off quickly I landed wrong and my girlfriend heard it snap from the complete opposite end of the apartment. I am healing and am stuck home for a while but at least I can type right? Everything is taking longer because I can't get up and get things I need when I'm alone so reviews and the shop and everything were put on hold.

Anyway.... Today I have a great review for you of some nail art items I received for review from Born Pretty Store. I was contacted by their rep about reviewing some items and since I've used their supplies before and have always loved them in the past I was glad to grab at a chance to review something. The items I chose are 3D Nail Art items which can be added to designs or even a plan manicure to give them some flair. I'll show you the manicure first and then I'll show you what I got from Born Pretty Store.

I started with a base of a Jelly Syrup mani using Messy Jessi Monsoon Season then added different items and designs to each nail to make a skittles mani. Here she is!

I really love how these came out. The 3D skull on my middle finger is the review item from Born Pretty Store. It came with a bunch of other in this great little wheel.

Messy Jessi Speckled Summer Collection

Hi All!

I'm back today with a super cute collection from Messy Jessi Lacquers.

This is a Summer collection that is running a bit late, but honestly, i love bright colors year round. Who doesn't? This collection is a little special in that it is a collection of 10 polishes which Jessica is selling in pairs and by the whole collection only. There are 5 pairs that are matching, one jelly and one matching glittered jelly.

I talked to Jessica before I swatched these about how much I love jellies and how they can be layered. We both decided it would be good for everyone to see the layering possibilities of these lacquers. So these swatches are done as Jelly Syrup manicures. For those of you who don't know a jelly syrup manicure is done by starting each coat of the polish a little further down the nail. This way, the polish closes to the cuticle is sheer at one coat and at the tip it is opaque at between 3-5 coats depending on the jelly.

I used very thin coats of these and so they are one coat at the cuticle and five coats at the tip. I then added one thin coat of the second glittered polish to my ring finger for each manicure. I absolutely loved the formula on every single one of these lacquers and I will most definitely be pulling them out over and over again. Want to see the photos? Here we go...

First up is Jelly Fishing paired with Good Rrreef!

This one is my absolute favorite of this collection! I love pink and this is just sooooo bright and soooo cheery!
