Sincerely Polish Neon Jellie Collection Swatch and Review

*Nothing to Disclose* Hello and Happy Monday Friends!! It's been a little while since I've posted, I used to disclose what was going on with me and recently I was diagnosed (finally) and told I have Fibromyalgia. I have good and bad days and the last couple have weeks have not been the greatest for me. So I apologize but I have tons of great swatches and lots of new indie brands (to me) coming my way that I can't wait to show you.

Today I am showing you Sincerely Polish Neon Jellie Collection. When I saw swatches of these on instagram I knew I had to have them. The collection consists of 4 white jelly polishes with neon glitters throughout each in different shapes, sizes, and colors. I got the chance to purchase these before the release date from Karen, who couldn't have been a sweeter person. She kept me up to date with everything, including when her new caps and brushes arrived.

First, is Neontastic Love.

Neontastic Love is a white jellie base filled with neon pink glitters in small and large hexes as well as neon hearts. The formula on this was outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of jellie polishes because I don't like my tips to show, but these made my tips look GOOD.

For this swatch I used 3 coats topped with a thick coat of Seche Vite. Please excuse my nubbin of a pointer finger, I suffered a pretty good break when getting Carter out of his highchair and instead of cutting them all back I decided to let that one catch up.

The neon pink glitters were by far my favorite of all the glitters, I couldn't quit catch the real "neon" color but inside the white jellie they really do have a great "pop".

Next, we have Electric Love Crush.

Electric Love Crush is a white base jellie filled with neon pink hexes, squares, and hearts along with neon blue hexes and squares. Again, the formula is spectacular.

For this swatch, I used 3 thin coats with one thick coat of Seche Vite. I think of all of them I had the best glitter pay off with this one than the rest.

Next, is Digital Get Down.

Digital Get Down is a white jellie base filled with neon green and neon blue hexes in different sizes.

Anyone remember N'Sync's Digital Get Down, oh the days when Justin Timberlake's curly top. Mmmm..... Oh, wait, back to the polish. This one was named after N'Sync's song, because, let's face it, who WASN'T an N'Sync fan?

This is 3 thin coats of Digital Get Down followed by a thick coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

Lastly, we have Beyond Supernova. My favorite of the whole collection.

Beyond Supernova is a white jellie base filled with neon pink hexes and stars, along with neon green hexes in different sizes.

It's no secret that I love different shaped glitters, and Beyond Supernova fills that little spot in my heart that I have for them, being filled with the neon pink stars. I think this rounded out the collection perfectly. Once again, 3 thin coats followed by a thick coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

Overall, this collection was fantastic, down to the formulation, to the glitters, and even the white jellie base. I've never encountered such a great white jellie that gives me enough opacity that it makes me feel good about not wearing undies with it.

The entire Neon Jellie collection is now out for pre-order including mini's that can be found at Sincerely Polish and you can also follow them on facebook here for updates and extra photos.

Will you be purchasing any or all of this collection? I can honestly say I am SO happy with my purchase, and the customer service is incredible.

Until Next Time!

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Collection Swatch and Review

*Press Sample* Hello and Happy Hump Day Friends! I've been away for a short break, my health has kind of been kicking me down lately but I'm not letting it stop me! I received the Zoya Magical Pixie Dust collection today, and couldn't wait to put them on! Let's get started shall we?

The Magical Pixie Dust Collection consists of three beautiful textured polishes packed with holographic glitter in three shades. I really hope that they deepen this line of polishes because HOLY MOLY, they are gorgeous.

The first polish I have to show you is Cosmo. This is described as "a silver crystal sparkle, textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles."

I practically fainted putting these on today. This is a beautiful silver, with chunks of hex glitters making this unlike anything I have ever seen before.

This is two coats of Cosmo with only base coat underneath.

Next up in the collection we have, Lux.

Lux is described as "a rose quartz sparkle textured PixieDust with mega hex iridescent particles."

Again, Lux is unlike anything I've ever put on my nails.

This is two coats, with only topcoat underneath.

Lastly in the collection, we have Vega.

Vega is described as "blue opal sparkle, textured PixieDust with Mega Hex Iridescent Particles."

Vega comes out a little darker on the nail then it looks in the bottle.

Again, two easy coats with only base coat underneath.

When I first looked at these I thought that application was going to be a nightmare, with glitters packed into the base of different sizes and textures, there was bound to be something up with the formula right? WRONG. I was SO impressed with the formula of these, two EASY coats. Vega if I had been careful I would have been able to get a one coater.

Wearing these polishes made me have this feeling in my stomach, kind of like a first crush type of thing.

If there is anything making you doubt buying these, don't let it fool you. These are absolutely stunning in the bottle, on the nail, even when you run your finger over the nail after it's dried. Perfection is one thing Zoya is known for and they didn't fail me this time.

You can purchase the Zoya polishes here.

Which is your favorite from the collection? Will you be purchasing?

Until Next Time!

Dollish Polish I'm A Material Girl & Dino-Mite Yoshi

*Nothing To Disclose*
Good Morning and Happy Friday Loves! I hope everyone is going to have a wonderful weekend. This weekend will be filled with swatching, knitting, and hanging out with my boys! I've been a little down the past week or so, I'm hoping things pick up soon.

Today I have for you two of my most lemmed Dollish Polish polishes. I'm A Material Girl and Dino-Mite Yoshi. I bought these as a birthday present to myself last year and just now put them on! Let's take a look shall we?

First up is I'm A Material Girl. I fell in love with this polish when I saw it on Chloe's Nails Blog. It is the perfect mix of pink and black in a light pink jelly base. You all know I love me some pink polish and this I had waited months to get before it was finally restocked.

I'm wearing two coats of I'm A Material Girl over Sally Hansen Xtreme Bubble Gum. Topped with Seche Vite of course.

I love love love this polish. It's going to be going on my toes a million times this summer!

Next up is Dino-Mite Yoshi. A gorgeous glitter topper filled with light green, silver and red glitters.

I layered one and a dabbed coat of Dino-Mite Yoshi over China Glaze Holly Days. Holly Days is one of my favorite dark greens in my collection. And if you all know me well enough you'll know I have a Dinosaur OBSESSION.

What do you think of these two polishes? I might have to admit that I'm A Material Girl is one of my absolute favorites.

You can find Dollish Polish here and on her facebook here.

Until Next Time!

KBShimmer Let's Get Star-ted Swatch

*Nothing to Disclose* Hello Friends! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend, and what a superbowl right? Hahaha, just kidding. Anyways, today I have for you KBShimmer, Let's Get Star-ted.

If any of you have seen my previous haul posts, you'll know that KBShimmer is one of my all time favorite indie brands. The formula on all of her polishes is out of this world, and the color combinations are to die for. I really can't wait to see what they come up with this spring.

Let's Get Star-ted is a white crelly base with black stars, matte blue. black and purple hexes. The formula was wonderful on this, two easy coats followed by Seche Vite. If I had layered this over a white polish I guarantee the outcome would have been much more vibrant but I love the way white crellys look on their own as well.

What do you think of Let's Get Star-ted? Do you own any KBShimmer? Tell me which ones you have! I'de love to hear!

You can find KBShimmer on their website here as well as their etsy shop here. You can also follow them on Facebook to stay up to date with new releases here.

Until Next Time!
