Takko Lacquer: Partial Summer Collection, Cosmoprof Color & 3rd Birthday Color Swatches and Restock Info

Hi guys! I know I don't generally get to post my indies on the blog anymore but I want to try and do mini posts like the one I will be doing today more often. I sort of stepped away form full time "blogging" in favor of posting my reviews/swatches to Instagram because it's easier, faster and just more convenient to post there. I won't be doing full blown posts with multiple photos, unless I have the time, instead I'll post a quick rundown with 1 photo of each polish, a link to it's original review post and a link to it's macro shot (if available) that will be on my Instagram account, @sassypaints2012. These links will give you the normal information I'd usually put in a review post here; shade descriptions, how the polish applies, and any other information I deem important. 
I know that some of our IG feeds tend to move rather quickly and you can really miss some great photos, I hope this will help bring you more of my swatches/reviews and in turn get more of these great polishes on your fingers! 

Recently I had the great honor of being asked to swatch for Takko Lacquer! I was thrilled to have this opportunity and of course jumped right on it. Up first I have 4 polishes from the Summer Collection,. These and the rest of the Summer Collection will be restocked today at 8pm ET.

Terax Hair Care Review

Hi guys! Today I have a different kind of post than normal. I was sent a bunch of samples for Terax Crema Original, Hydrate Leave-In and a bottle of Original +Keratin. I have been on the hunt for "THE' conditioner and this brand ranks up in my top 3! Here is a little info on this new to me brand...

"For nearly 50 years, men and women around the world have enjoyed soft,  shiny and healthy hair thanks to Terax Hair Care’s full line of rinse out and leave in conditioning treatments, including their cult favorite Terax Original Crema Conditioner. A family owned and operated company with an Italian heritage, Terax Hair Care focuses on building healthy hair from the inside out through high quality and innovative hair care formulations."

Before we proceed, I must admit I don't usually do many reviews in terms of hair care products so my photos aren't 100%. So please don't be too critical. I tried as best as I could to show you what I saw while using these products. I hope you enjoy.

Zoya: Paradise Sun Summer 2015 Collection

Hi guys! Today I have the second Summer collection from Zoya to show you. I had planned on swatching these sooner but I know that we bloggers tend to post them all at once and then the blogging world seems to go into overload. This is why I decided to wait so they would serve as sort of a refresher, or as something kind of new if you happened to miss the storm of posts. Now let's jump right on into the photos!

SinfulColors Summer 2015: Street Fusion Swatches & Review

"This summer, SinfulColors transports you across the globe with an on-trend collection of 29 hues that reflect the vibrant and eclectic chaos from around the world.  The fusion of saturated cream shades and dazzling neon appliqués channel the pulsating energy of a summer evening.  The offbeat blend of spicy reds, oranges and cooling blues are perfectly paired with henna appliqués and foil tips.  Juicy purples and pinks complement new matte glitter toppers that add a fashion-forward flair while graffiti-inspired splatter glitter topcoats capture the diverse and rebellious vibe of street art.

Let these 29 vibrant shades, 6 glitter topcoats and 5 appliqués from SinfulColors express your individuality this summer with an electrifying mani to remember."

Hi guys! I was excited to have received some of the new polishes from SinfulColors' Summer collection to review. I was sent 6 polishes and 1 set of appliqués. I was well on my way to swatching all of them for you and them *WOMP WOMP* I broke a nail! :/ Instead of reswatching all of them to match in length I opted for two separate posts. So in today's post I have 3 of the 6 polishes to show you.

Zoya Island Fun Summer 2015 Swatches & Review

Hi guys! The weather is warming up, clothes are getting lighter and the days are getting longer. That can only mean one thing, Summer is almost here! So you know what that means, fun summer colors and Zoya doesn't disappoint with two new awesome summer collections. Today I have a collection of 6 highly pigmented, rich cremes to show you. I think that these are probably the absolute best formulas of all the cremes that Zoya has put out. They are all very opaque and a couple were one coaters. They are a bit on the thicker side, but I'll admit I like thicker formulas. Now don't get me wrong, they aren't so thick that you can't work with them, if you prefer a thinner formula a couple drops of thinner will work that out for you. These applied so smooth and easy, no dragging, pulling or flooding the cuticles or sides.

Barielle Bling It On Spring Collection 2015 Swatches & Review

Hi guys! How was everyone's long weekend? I was sick...well still sick actually. I have a cold that I just can't shake and it has me worn down. I figured I better put some of my lounging around time to good use and get this blog post up. The Bling It On collection is described by Barielle as "dazzling combinations of glitter...perfect worn alone or they can add an exciting dimension to a manicure when worn as a top coat, french tip or reverse french!" I chose to wear them over opaque colors so I could let the shimmers and glitters really pop. They all have great formulas that are so easy to work with: glitters come out in an abundance and lay nice and flush against the nail. They also finish nice and smooth after applying your favorite fast drying top coat, not even a slight hint of texture.
