Colores de Carol Happy Spring Trio

Hello lovelies! I'm here with my third Colores de Carol post of the month. She keeps knocking out beautiful polishes and I can't wait to see what's in store for next month! The Happy Spring Trio consist of three soft crelly shades. They're perfect for Spring and all have a variety of delicate glitters, flakies, and/or shimmer. The formulas are on the thin side so you build up to nice, even coverage. Let's take a look...

UberChic Beauty Collection 22 and Got Chevron? 01 Stamping Plates Review

Hello lovelies! I have some UberChic Beauty stamping plates to share with you today! There were so many images I loved in Collection 22 that I had to do two from each plate. The Got Chevron plate has some pretty good images too, but I was hoping to see just a couple more traditional chevron images from it. I kept each of these looks pretty simple so they're all totally recreate-able.

Painted Polish By Grabthar's Hammer (April 2018 Polish Pick Up Exclusive)

Hello lovelies! Here is the last April Polish Pick Up shade I have to share with you and I think I may have just saved the best for last! Painted Polish will be participating in the PPU for the first time and their contribution to the "Across the Universe: Planets and Galaxies" theme was inspired by the movie "Galaxy Quest". I still have never seen this movie, so maybe it's about time I do.

Rainy Days With Zoya

Hello lovelies! It's been a lazy week spent inside watching the rain, wind, and lightning storms. All this wet Spring weather has put me in some kind of mood, and I've found myself reaching for polishes that reflect that with moody shades. I pulled together these four Zoya polishes that seemed to be made for each other and created some rainy day nail art. Before we get to that I wanted to show them each off individually.

Emily de Molly Created By Man (Polish Pick Up April 2018 Exclusive)

Hello my peeps! I have another Polish Pick Up shade to share today! I mentioned yesterday that April's theme is "Across the Universe: Planets and Galaxies" and Hayley of Emily de Molly was inspired by the above photo from Battlestar Galactica. This is a thermal polish so I have a gazillion photos showing it off!

KBShimmer Hubble'd Together (Polish Pick Up April 2018 Exclusive)

Hello lovelies! Are you ready for the April Polish Pick Up? If you're new around these parts, let me explain. The PPU is a monthly shop open for four days only where 30+ indie polish makers create an exclusive polish based on a theme. April's theme is "Across the Universe: Planets and Galaxies". The photo Christy chose for her inspiration is fantastic and this is what she has to say about it-

"Hubble, the world's first large, space-based optical telescope, has taken many beautiful pictures of
the planets and stars. Our April Polish Pick Up contribution pays homage to the Hubble, with this
polish based on a photo it took of Jupiter, its three moons and their shadows."

Colores de Carol Spring 2018 Collection (Thermals)

Holy cow, do I have a photo heavy post for you! Although there are only six polishes in the Colores de Carol Spring 2018 collection, I included MANY photos for each shade. They are all thermals so I wanted to capture the shift of colors from warm to cool, with a transition in between. I am totally captivated by this collection! The formulas were all great and each shade has a unique mixture of glitters, shimmers, and flakies. I also love how this brings be back to my childhood as I see the shades reminiscent of Hypercolor tshirts (never owned one, always wanted to). Do you see it too?
