Cupcake Polish Essential Oils Collection

Hello lovelies! I was so excited when the Sara of Cupcake Polish reached out to me to review their new collection! Cupcake Polish consistently makes gorgeous polishes and this collection is no exception. As soon as I saw the theme I knew it had to be good. I love essential oils and each shade does a great job emulating what inspired them. The formulas are super consistent- thin and smooth, and completely opaque in two coats.

Cupcake Polish announces its newest collection themed after one of our favorite things- essential oils. Life can be stressful at times and we love essential oils for their aroma and healing properties. The simplicity of these natural oils has inspired us to go back to the basics – or should we say essentials? We have created 6 amazing super linear holographic nail polishes that are sure to be staples in your collection. Each polish is carefully handcrafted to resemble some of our favorite essential oils- cinnamon, sandalwood, frankincense, eucalyptus, lavender, and lemongrass.

Road to Polish Con New York 2018: Week 7

Hello lovelies! I've been looking forward to this week ever since we started the Road to Polish Con! Both shades this week were created in collaboration as "Fairy Cute" polishes and whaaat?.. holographic microglitter thermal polishes?! Have I piqued your interest? Now I must apologize because somehow I don't know how to read labels and I didn't find out until today that they are BOTH thermal polishes. So unfortunately I didn't take all the photos needed for the first one. Sad face.

"A truly magical pair of polishes that were created for the Midsummer’s Nights Dream theme, specifically to mimic the way light would reflect off of fairy’s wings."

Colores de Carol Cosmic Summer 2.0

Hello there! I'm here will the newest Colores de Carol release, the Cosmic Summer 2.0 collection. It's made up of four multichrome shades with holo glitter and iridescent chameleon glitter. If these look familiar it's because last year I reviewed the original Cosmic Summer collection (here). The formulas were all great although you might notice a little bumpiness here and there from the glitter. Let's take a look..

Savannah Lacquer Springtime in Savannah Collection

Hello lovelies! I have the newest collection from Savannah Lacquer called Springtime in Savannah. It consists of six glitter crellies that capture the moodiness and emerging colors of Spring. I was pleasantly surprised by the uniqueness of this collection as a whole, and the inspiration was apparent in each shade. As far as the formulas go, they are all on the thin side so the glitters spread pretty effortlessly. Let's take a look..

Essie Spring 2018 Collection

Hello friends! I am so pleased to share the Essie Spring 2018 collection with you! The collection has a nautical theme and I think the color palette reflects that for the most part. I have a real soft spot for anything nautical so my heart was already in it before I even tried them on. The best part is that the formulas were all fantasic- really smooth, with nice opacity, and I didn't have any issues with application. Let's get right to it..
