Cult Nails | Casual Elegance and Nail Vinyls!

I am so excited to share this collection with you and at the same time I am so sorry they took so long. I didn't know they were coming, and when they got here I was swamped with other things. Anywho...

I have the 2nd 2014 collection from Cult Nails for you today. This collection is a trio of perfectly purple polishes (sorry, had to.) I love all three of these shades and the formulas are perfection as usual coming from Cult Nails. I did have some trouble photographing these, because as we all know, purple does not like to be photographed, but I believe I have as close of a representation as I can get to accurate for you all.

It seems this collection hasn't only struck a cord with me, but also with a lot of other nail gals as the preorder completely sold out in only a few days. Hopefully after the pre-sale there will be some of these beauties available for purchase separately if you haven't already gotten them. If they do become available individually I highly recommend you pick them up if you did not pre-order.

Introducing the Cult Nails Casual Elegance Collection.

First up is Intriguing, a soft holo lacquer.

CDB Lacquer | Doctor Who Pt. 1

Woohoo! I'm back today with a really exciting collection for you! Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge geek and I have an affinity for British TV. Put that together and you get a major Doctor Who Fan aka Whovian. So when Cheyenne of CDB Lacquer told me she wanted to send minis of her new Doctor Who collection to me of course I said YES!

This collection consists of four glitter toppers with names inspired by the tv show Doctor Who. I am happy to say they're all unique in my collection and a lot of fun.

First up I have a brightly colored number for you. This is Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey.

I love the color combo on this topper and the stars add just the right amount of interest to the tiny hexes. You all know I love anything with stars!

New Brand Alert! | Gamer Gloss

Hi there!

I know I know, it has been a while, but bear with me, because I am almost caught up in my shop, which means more time for nails!

Today I have a brand new indie polish brand to share with you. Brianna from Gamer Gloss started as a customer and then asked if I would be willing to swatch and review her premier collection of gamer themed polishes. As a self-proclaimed geek of course I said YES!

I have to admit that I may have to turn in my geek card for this one though, the collection is based on Foxhound, and I had no idea what that was when I got the collection. I have since read a quick wiki so I know it is part of Metal Gear and that the colors are mostly named after characters in a black ops unit. I love the geeky side of beauty!

There are seven colors in this collection, one thermal, one glow, four glitters with colored bases and one glitter topper. Lets start with the glow.

This baby is Psycho Mantis.

I have to stop right here and admit. I was not excited about this color in the bottle. I'm not really a yellow lover and this had kinda a mustardy tone to it. BUT once I got it on my nails I really actually fell in love. The color got much warmer on my nails because it is a bit sheer and my skin showed through a bit. The color was almost a perfect match to my beloved Boston Bruins (who were playing while I swatched this and won... good luck maybe?)
