Nail Mail! Polish Addict Nail Color ♥

Hello Everyone!!

I've been away from here for a little bit due to so much stuff I had to get done and lots of working.

Today I'm bringing you an awesome package from Polish Addict I received.
I was one of the first 20 people to place an Order at the release of the Beachy Keen collection, the goodies I received came separately from the polishes, so I wanted to wait to have all the times swatched to write the post.

Laura surprised me with even more extra goodies! so I got lots of things to review today!

The first polish I bought was Summer Lovin'

Summer Lovin' is a white crelly base packed with tons of small and medium sized glitters.
The application of this polish was a heaven sent miracle, I didn't have to fish or dab for my glitters everything applied beautifully and the formula was awesome as well.

In this polish we can find lots of hexagonal neon green glitters as well as green, neon green and neon pink squares. there's also some very small hexagonal neon pink and holographic glitter. You can also find tiny neon pink dots and some very small round green glitter.

I loved the color combination Laura picked for this polish. Definitely will be loving this one all summer long!

The next color I got was Beachy Keen, my favorite out of the whole collection, a beautiful and definitely a unique colored polish.

Beachy Keen is a greyish nude crelly base with different pastel colored glitters.

The application of this polish was just as good as Summer Lovin' but the formula was a little thicker, which made the glitter placement easier.

For the glitters we have lots of dark and light yellow hexagonal glitters,  we have small lilac, purple and dark but pastel pink hexagonal glitters.

Now I'm going to show you guys the goodies Laura sent me. ♥

In the cute little bag there was an awesome nail file, a black striping tape which I have like 20 colors of striping tape yet I needed black, so thanks girl you hit the spot!. Also there was some cute small nail fimos, a mini polish, mini cuticle oil, a hand scrub and cuticle cream.

Then she generously added a full size polish and two minis. ♥

The mini included in the bag goes by the name of May flowers.
May flowers is a lilac cream base with different glitters in it.

The formula of this polish was a little thin but the color built up to full opacity with three coats, so that wasn't a problem. The application was fine and this polish has a great amount of glitter so no fishing was required.

There's many shapes of glitter in this polish so i'll be naming only the ones I see clearly in the bottle.
You can find black squared and bar glitters, purple, pink, white, blue, red and holographic hexagonal glitter.  there's tons of other small glitters in it as well.

Nebula is another one of the minis I received and OMG I am so excited about this one. I saw it on the page before and I really wanted it so I'm happy about this one the most!

Nebula is a dark plum holographic polish. I have a special love for my holographic babies and I'm really glad Nebula is joining my collection.

Under sunlight this polish is bright and the holographic effect is pretty strong. In the shade is a dark shimmery beautiful plum.

The swatches are two coats with SV top coat.

The next one is Milky Way. This polish is a white base glitter bomb.

The formula of the polish is kind of like May flowers, thin, but reached opacity easily. You don't end up with thick and chubby looking nails. The glitters in it stick out a little bit, but with just one coat of top coat it was all solved.

I'll name the glitters that I see from the bottle as well since there's many types of it.

You can find yellow, grey, purple, red and holographic squared glitters as well as green and orange hexagonal glitters and many other small shapes of glitters.

The full size polish she sent me is Spring Equinox. This is a cranberry jelly base with iridescent glitters.

This polish was very easy to apply and the formula was amazing. I didn't have to fish for the glitters and everything was spread out evenly.

For the glitters we can find green,yellow and lime green iridescent glitters.

The cuticle oil she sent me was the Lemon Verbena one, I already have the Pink Sugar cuticle oil and it smells amazing so I was excited to smell this one it smells fresh and super lemony. I totally loved it!

The hand scrub had a really clean scent to it and it left my hands feeling very soft!
The cuticle cream was vanilla scented and I loved the smell. I like the fact that the hand scrub has almost no scent to it so it doesn't mix with the scent of the cuticle cream if I were to apply it right after.

I loved all the stuff I got and thanks to Laura again for all the extra goodies and having such an awesome costumer service!

everyone have a great day and thanks as always for reading ♥

Polish Addict nail mail♥

Hi everyone!

As you might know I'm completely in love with polish addict polishes and today I'll review two of them I purchased recently.

The first one is Imagine Dragons. An aqua jelly base with different sized and shaped glitters in different colors.

The formula of this polish was thinner than the usual formula I'm used to, but that didn't give me any trouble.
I used three coats and the coverage was great. The application was smooth and there's plenty of glitter in this polish. I had to fish for the big circles a little bit but it can be solved by just letting the bottle sit upside down for a while, I personally was just too excited to put it on lol.

Now glitter talk! Oh god! I knew I had to buy this polish whenever I saw the beautiful gold round glitter it had. I remember the polish addict polish that caught my eye first was Drunken Elephant and it was because of its black round glitter.
We can also find some gold, green and blue hexagonal glitters.

The second polish to review is Blue Hawaiian. A blue jelly with different glitters. This polish has a soft blue   shimmer going through it as well.

The formula was good and the application was fine I used three coats of Blue Hawaiian for the swatch.
 I love the finish of this polish everything looks so squishy haha.

You can find light pink bar glitter, white, blue, cranberry and light pink squares, diamond and hex shaped glitters.

Both these polishes are on sell at www.shoppolishaddict.bigcartel.com for $9.00 USD.
I definitely recommend Laura's polishes to you guys. Their price is fine, they're beautiful and unique polishes and Laura is always coming up with new polishes.

Thank you all for reading and I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

Zoya PixieDust Summer Edition!

Hi guys!

Last time I went to Ulta I purchased 3 polishes from the PixieDust Summer Edition! I was so glad these weren't sold out, because last collection was always sold out.

The first color I picked up was Miranda. A rapberry red with beautiful pink holographic glitters.
This was my favorite color out of all of them next to Liberty. The formula of this polish was great. It was very easy to apply and it only took two coats to get a very opaque finish. You could get away with one coat though.

The second one I purchased was Liberty. A gorgeous blue shade with lighter blue glitter. This color is such a basic blue but it just looks so amazing textured,and with the top coat,the glitters pops and makes it look awesome. The formula of this one was great and I used two coats as well.

The last one was Destiny, this polish is a reddish shade of orange mixed with gold glitters. I rarely wear orange polishes but this one was very pretty and I really wanted to try it out. The formula was good as well but this color was a little more sheer than the rest so I used three coats for this swatch.

I put clear top coat on the nails afterwards, the top coat makes the glitter pop a lot. I love the textured but I feel like when the polish is wearing off you can change it up by applying the top coat.

Finally here are the macro swatches

Hope you guys enjoyed these swatches & as always thanks for reading

Ulta Haul! Couture De Minnie Runaway Minnies.

Hi everyone!!!

I'm super excited about today's post. I just  back from Ulta and I bought a few thing to review for you all.
Lets get started!

As soon as I walked into the store I went to look for these. I didn't know this set existed but I thought the packaging was adorable and WAY cheaper than buying the full collection that I will just swatch once and store, so buying the minis was definitely more convenient for me. This set runs for $12.95 and even though it doesn't include Mini Style from the full size collection I'm supper happy with my purchase.

The first color from the set is A definite Moust-Have and it is an almost neon rosy pink with a soft pearl shimmer to it. This color is sooo amazing for summer and I will be wearing this a lot, even though I don't usually wear neons. I applied two coats of it for this picture. The formula of this polish was great and it dried very quickly!


Next on we have Magazine Cover Mouse. This is the polish I wanted the most out of the whole collection. Magazine Cover Mouse is a Liquid Sand and it's honestly one of the prettiest textured nail polishes I've seen so far. This beautiful red polish has a gold and pink shimmer. It was very opaque. I used two coats.


Chic from Ears to Tail is next. This is a bubble gum pink creme with a very soft silver shimmer. I couldn't really capture the shimmer on the pictures though. :(
The formula was alright, it was a bit streaky but also my brush for this polish was damaged so it made it worse. I used three thick coats here.


Last but not least we have Innie Minnie Mightie Bow. This is a beautiful red creme with lighter red shimmer. At first I thought this would be very similar to A spy who Loved me from the Skyfall collection, I didn't really like that one that much, but Innie Minnie Mightie Bow took my breath away. I completely loved it and it doesn't have a gold shimmer at all, so it was very different to what I thought it'd be like.
This polish was a little thick but this made the application easy. I used two coats here but I'm sure I could've gotten away with one coat, even though the shimmer looks better with two.

That was it for this review, I hope you guys liked it and thanks for reading!

Goodnight everyone

Winstonia nail plates & Konad nail polishes review.

Hey everyone.

Today I'll be reviewing two different things for you guys, first we will review the amazing stamping plates from Winstonia.

 This set comes with 20 different stamping plates. Each plate has 7 different designs.
Almost every single plate has cool designs. I've never had any other kind of stamping plates before so I'm happy about these.

 I purchased these for $15.99 USD, winstonia also has free shipping if you spend $25 or more, so I went ahead and got the stamper/scraper as well.
Almost all the designs are cute and fun, there is some pointless ones I probably will never use, but they are mostly all cute. The stamper works pretty well but it's a little too round, I don't know maybe I just need a little more practice with the bigger stamps.

The plates I used from left to right were: W105, W104, W115, W108.

Now, I purchased some Konad polishes from www.konadnailart.com, it took forever to get then but they arrived safely.
The black one is definitely super opaque but there was some colors that were still a little sheer. I totally recommend you buy a black one for stamping though.

Polish Addict - Confetti Burst.

Hi guys!

Today I'll be reviewing this beautiful Polish Addict polish I purchased recently.

Polish Addict is one of my favorite indie sellers, I totally love the polishes she makes, the girl is a freaking genius! You can purchase her stuff here and she also has a discounted shop that you can find here.

This polish goes by the name of Confetti Burst and it definitely lives up to its name.
Confetti Burst is part of the Crelly Collection and it is a white crelly base packed with tons of different glitters that we will talk about later on.

The formula of this polish is great and there is honestly so much glitter in there that you don't need to dab this polish on at all.

As you can see there is many kinds of glitter in this polish. I'm not really a fan of bar glitter but this polish made it love it We have all sizes of hexagonal glitters along with some square glitter and bar glitter.
I definitely love the huge purple and blue glitters the most.
I'm so glad this polish is part of my collection now! love it.

I also got one of her cuticle oils for free with a discount code. It was the Pink Sugar cuticle oil and it smells delicious, I've been using it for two days and my cuticles have been hydrated. So far it is pretty good.

Hope you guys liked it and definitely check out Laura's site, she has tons of polishes to choose from.

Love you all♥♥

As always thanks for reading!
