Laquerlicious Fall 2014 Collection Swatches & Review


Happy Monday loves! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I'm really excited about today's post. I have quite a few fall collections in my possession as of right now and this gorgeous Laquerlicious collection is the first to make an appearance on the blog. 


If you’ve tried Laquerlicious polishes you already know how excellent the quality is. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? Michelle, the creator of Laquerlicious, has some of the most beautiful Indie polishes and they always have the best formulas making application a breeze! This collection is full of deliciously rich fall shades that will make those gloomy autumn days tolerable.  
Each polish is shown here as 2 coats topped with Barielle's fast drying top coat, No-Chip Speed Dry. All 9 of these beauties have excellent formulas, no flooding, pooling, dragging or clumping and they are all self-leveling. They also have a nice consistency to them, not to thick but not thin by any means, giving you excellent control and requiring less clean up. 

So let's take a look at what Michelle has whipped up for us...

Forever Polished: It's A Fairy World Collection Swatches & Review


Hi loves! So I have had a heck of a week and fell waaaay behind. I had originally planned on having several posts up this week but my darling husband injured himself at work and I have had to help him get around. That and the fact that I don’t actually have Internet, I use the library for that, It’s just been difficult to find the time to get to a connection. So next week I will hopefully have a week full of posts! ♥

Anyway, today I have a new collection from Forever Polished to show you. This collection is a Spin-off inspired by the polish Fairy Party of  the Mythical Party collection. All of these have an excellent formula, applying smooth and distributing glitter evenly over the nail. 


Fairy Babies: pastel hexes of various size and color, small iridescent hexes, gold shards and holo micro glitters in a clear base. 
Shown as 2 cots over Coloured Raine Cali Blast, topped with Barielle's No-Chip Speed Dry.




Fairy Blood: a raspberry red-pink jelly with small iridescent hexes, holo micro glitters and gold shards and hexes.
Shown as 3 coats topped with Barielle No-Chip Speed Dry.




Fairy Fart: a soft lavender crelly with purple and holo micro glitters, small iridescent glitters and gold shards.
Shown as 2 coats topped with Barielle No-Chip Speed Dry.

Create the Perfect Barielle Manicure


Hello lovelies! Today I have a special post for you. Barielle was nice enough to let me pick out some things to create the perfect Barielle manicure! So I picked all the things I would use from start to finish.

 First I started off with Barielle's Extra Gentle Cuticle Minimizer
This is easy to apply and, as described, very gentile. You simply apply some to the cuticle area and let it sit for a few minutes then, using the included orange stick, gently push the cuticles back. Any dead skin will instantly come off as well. Once that is all done you just wash your hands with warm water.

Zoya Naturel Deux Collection Swatches and Review


Happy Thursday loves! I'm sure you have seen that Zoya released a new collection of neutral shades by now. This is a collection that will transition your polished tips from the bright summer shades to the lovely deep shades Zoya has in store for us this fall! If you haven't already seen the first Naturel Collection make sure you check that one out here

All of these are shown here as 2 coats topped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. The formulas were great, exactly with what I have come to expect of Zoya: no flooding, pooling, dragging or thickening just smooth and self leveling.
