Kelara Lacquers Review and Swatches

Hello everyone! Today I am bringing to you a review of some polishes by a fairly new name in the Indie world. Kelara Lacquers is run by a very creative couple, Kellen and Tara. They are such a cute couple and they work on their line of polishes together and apparently the idea to start making polish was Kellen’s idea! How cool is that?  I was sent 3 colors for this review: Jupiter, Silver & Gold and Hooray for Boobies!  
So let’s get to it!

Nail Pattern Boldness "Silver" Flake aka Tin Man

Hello ladies and gents! Long time no post, right!? Sorry about the mini hiatus, things were just a little busy because of the holiday. I traveled to Indiana with my mom and my little brother and his family to visit my older brother and his family. It was the first time my brothers and I have all been together under one roof in almost 2 years! We had a lot of fun and we ate a LOT all weekend! Traditional American food for thanksgiving and then Mexican the rest of the weekend! YUM! I miss everyone already, but I was glad to come home since my hubby didn't get to come with us and this was our first holiday apart since we met. Plus I didn't get to play with my polish for 4 days!!! THE HORROR!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone in the states is having a wonderful Thanksgiving and going to enjoy lots of Turkey, and all of my international polish pals happy Thursday! I just wanted to share my Thanksgiving mani with you all. I didn't have time to do the turkey mani I wanted to do since my family and I were running around trying to get some shopping done for our trip to Indiana to visit my older brother and his family. So I decided to just use some fall colors instead. I recently won a new beauty from Hit Polish (I've posted about some of Rachel's polishes before when her shop went by D&R Apothecary) by giving her the name for one of her soon to be released polishes. I received it yesterday and quickly decided it would be perfect for my Turkey day mani!  Here is butterLondon All Hail the Queen under Hit Polish Painted Desert.

Wing Dust Collections *Review and Swatches* (Update -coupon code)

Good evening lacquered lovelies! I hope this post finds you all well and not too stressed out over tomorrows festivities. Today I would like to share with you all a collection by an Indie that some of you may or may not have already heard of, that comes from our lovely neighbors to the North, Wing Dust Collections. When I spoke to Stephanie about reviewing I was excited to try out anything she sent, when my package arrived I was floored! It was by far the prettiest package I've gotten to date. It was packed In a beautiful box that had her logo (see bottle shots) on the top...unfortunately it was halfway covered by postage stickers so I didn't take a picture...the packaging was obviously done with great care, you can tell she puts a lot of thought and love into her products just by the packaging alone!

I have tons of great pictures for 6 different beauties for you today. So keep on reading and you will see some stunning and unique polishes that any polish junkie will love!!

Nail Pattern Boldness *The Time Traveler Collection*

Good afternoon boys and girls! I am sorry for the lack of posting and interacting on Facebook right now. I owe you all a recreation post for the final day of the 31 day challenge and I will have it for you but I am trying to catch up on a few things and I am having an issue with my internet that doesn't look like it will be resolved until after the holiday! Now I am at the mercy of the library WiFi, thank goodness it's just a few blocks away so I can just take a nice little walk to do my posts. It's just strange having to be super prepared before I start writing my posts! LOL Anyway. 
 Today I have a very special post for you! I recently told you all that I was sent a lot of goodies from Allison of Nail Pattern Boldness. Some of those goodies are what I'm going to show you today! 
The Time Traveler Collection is inspired by Doctor Who. Now, I will not lie, I haven't seen Doctor Who since I was little when my mom use to watch, so I have no real recollection of the old series and I  have not seen the new either. However I do know 1 thing for sure fans and non fans have been waiting for this collection to debut! So without further ado, I now present to you the very first swatches of Nail Pattern Boldness Time Traveler Collection...

Nail Pattern Boldness "Boop-Oop-a-Dupe" & My 100th Post!!

100 posts! I can't believe it! I knew that the mani for this post had to be an awesome one so I was saving a lemming that I recently acquired in a giveaway just for this occasion, Max Factor Fantasy Fire. However, while I was waiting ever so patiently for 100 to hit, I received the most awesome package full of great goodies to review and one of those goodies just so happened to be a dupe for the hard to find Fantasy Fire and even harder to find Clarins 230 aka Unicorn Pee!  So of course I had to do a comparison for you all.
I now present to you Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-a-Dupe! Oh! Be forewarned this is a picture heavy post, but it is totally worth it! So I will keep my jibber jabber to a minimum until the end. ;)

Day 30: Inspired by a tutorial (Happy Birthday Joe Joe!)

Today isn't really a challenge day, it's actually tomorrow, nor is this mani actually inspired by a tutorial.The search of a certain tutorial was inspired by a little person. See, today is my nephews birthday. He is 5 years old today. I don't have any children of my own (and don't plan on any either!), I do have a stepdaughter, 2 nieces and my nephew. While I absolutely adore my stepdaughter and my nieces, my little man holds a very special place in my heart. The day that tiny little angel was born I knew what true love felt like for the first time. So even though he isn't mine I have a very special bond with him and he is the closest thing I will ever have when it comes to children. So this mani was inspired by the love of my life, my dear sweet nephew. 

Happy birthday Joe Joe!
 (Gizzle you better show him what I created for him! It took a lot of patience! LOL)

Day 29 "Inspired by the supernatural"

Ok, I apologize in advance for the half-assed job I've done on this day of the challenge. I was kind of in a hurry since I am in the process of a few reviews. But I am determined to actually finish this challenge with no more skip days! So since I was in such a hurry I decided to go for an easy out. Here are my Ectoplasmic Goo nails that were inspired by the Ghostbusters.

Ninja Babe: Nail Pattern Boldness

Hello all! I have a quick post today. This is one I've been wanting t do for a while now. I was going to swatch my Color Club holiday mini set but I decided I had enough time to do that later. Instead I have a top coat from Nail Pattern Boldness to show you today! Allison listed this girly version of  Ninja vs Pirate a couple of months back and was sweet enough to send me one. Like I said I've been pretty backed up and just now have gotten around to using this beauty, but better late than never. 

Ninja Babe: Red and pink shard glitters in a clear base.

All pictures show 2 coats of Ninja Babe over 2 coats Wet n Wild Break the Ice topped with 1 coat of NPB Glitter Food  to assure smoothness and 1 coat Sally Hansen Mega Shine since NPB dries a bit matte.

Application was an absolute breeze. There was no fishing and really no need for placing any of the glitters. They just slid right off the brush with no problems!

I am so in love with shard glitters! It gives such a cool abstract look.

Ninja Babe is available now right now, here is a direct link to the listing.
Nail Pattern Boldness' full shop is available on Etsy here. Allison ships, of course, throughout the US and Canada plus a few other countries (just check her listings for details). If you don't see your country available  she also has several polishes listed on Llarowe here, where there are a couple of exclusive polishes available as well. She also has a few polishes available on Shoppe Eclecticco as well!

You can find Nail Pattern Boldness on Facebook here. Allison always posts sneak peeks and restock info on her Facebook page. She also posts info on special projects that she may release along with more detailed restock info on her blog here. Make sure you like her page, she has already shown us what she is releasing next! So don't miss out!!! =)

Tip Top Nails Review and Swatches

Happy hump day boys and girls! I hope everyone is having a great week so far, if not don't fret we are almost to the end of the week so hang in there! Today I have a whole lot of goodies to show you all. I was recently contacted by the super sweet Joan of Tip Top Nails to see about reviewing. Of course I jumped on the opportunity since these are not found here in the States! I always love showing you guys new and exciting things, I hope I am doing a good job of that so far, so when I received my package last week I was so excited! 

*Note: I apologize in advance that some of these pictures are a bit blurry...I was having a bad picture day, and unfortunately I didn't realize this until after I had already swatched.*

Day 27 Inspired by Artwork

Goooood morning polish world! I have completed yet ANOTHER day in the challenge! Surprised my polished pretties? If you are I can't say I blame you! Today is suppose to be inspired by art. When thinking of what I wanted to do for this the only thing I could think of was watercolor paintings. So here is my Art inspired mani for day 27. I am half asleep, so this is going to be quick!

Poison Ivy

Hey girls and boys, how are we all today?  I decided, that since I am working on my next review, I would do a post on a color I used recently in my Jindie Nails Santa Claws Review.  I took a few pictures of this before I added Jen's amazing sparkly pretty just so I could show you all the amazingness of this color! I now present to you Poison Ivy of the Wet n Wild Pick Your Poison Collection.

Day 26...and I bet you thought I forgot!

Inspired by a pattern. I really was having a major block when it came to picking back up in the challenge. I have been doing so much swatching lately that I feel like I have nail art block. Just when I was about to call it quits, I decided to use the pattern I see every single day. My towels! Duh. 
So here it is, my day 26 mani., and yes I know I skipped 23, 24 & 25, so please forgive me.
