St. Patrick’s Day Mani 2016

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks. It’s been tough and even my love for nail polish isn’t doing anything to help the situation. I am super behind on posts and I have a huge box of new collections I need to get swatched and reviewed. Hopefully, I cant find some time this coming week to really buckle down and get on track again. No promises though, sometimes life just gets in the way. I’m sure everyone can understand that when you get overwhelmed, you need to learn to take some steps back and deal with those things that are bothering you before you can continue on.

For St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would put some effort into my nails again. I haven’t really sat down and done my nails for a while, which is unheard of for me… So, I went and got out some greens and I even did some watermarbling that I am quite proud of!

Sinful Colors King Kylie Collection Part I (Swatches & Review)

Kylie Jenner is a name I’m sure everyone on the face of the planet has heard of by now. No intro needs to be said about this girl. She’s everywhere! If you thought her name couldn’t possibly be anywhere else, she’s now in the nail industry. She’s teamed up with Sinful Colors to release a massive collection. It’s a 20-piece limited edition collection new in stores.

When I saw heard of the news, I knew I had to get my butt over to Walmart and grab as many as I could! I really did… I ended up buying 11 of the 20! All the polishes are part of the Sinful Shine line, meaning they all boast the claim of being a gel-like polish by providing the benefits of longer lasting polish and a gel shine. I would settle for no less either if I were to partner up with Sinful Colors!

Today I’ll be sharing half of my King Kylie haul. I thought I would split it up to make it easier on me and to get this post out to you as fast as I could!

February Favorites |2016

Some affiliate links

I have had a tough week. In short, it has seriously been a whirlwind. It’s a new day, a new month and there is always something good to look forward to. This year we had the pleasure of enjoying an extra day, Feb. 29th and now it’s March! This is the time when the weather gets warmer, birds return, my nose starts itching, eyes start puffing up and the flowers start blooming. Hooray. I am excited for that. Well, I am excited about some things more than the others. I’m sure you can guess.

Joking and drama aside, I really am looking forward to this month. Spring collections have already started to flood stores. I have some new collections I need to get to swatching to get reviewed for you!

Before we jump into the new month, let’s wind back a little and see what polishes I have enjoyed for the shorter month of February!

Wet n Wild Spring into the Wild Collection for LE Spring 2016

I always look forward to new collections from Wet n Wild. They never disappoint. This time when I saw the new spring collection, I was afraid that it was going to be a let down. The colors looked very similar to last year’s spring colors. I thought maybe they were trying to pull an Essie move on us. You know how tricky that brand can be! So when I compared them, I breathed a sigh of relief to see that they were different. Different enough to the point where you can distinguish one from the other.

I scooped up all four to show you and I can’t wait to dig in! Don’t these colors get you excited for spring? The perfect pastels to get you excited for all the season will bring. I’ll also compare these to shades from last year’s Silver Lake collection from the spring too!

Mani Monday: Essie Resort 2016 Inspired!

Happy Monday! Or at least, I hope it’s a happy Monday for you!

When I was reviewing the new Essie Going Guru Resort collection, I couldn’t help but notice the adorable packaging of the mini set. The paisley design is just too cute! I knew I wanted to create a mani with a similar look but being the amateur I am, I was going to need some help. Okay. I was going to need A LOT of help.

Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking (Review & Swatches)

Today I’m going to be talking about a polish that has received a overwhelming amount of praise for a number of months now. This polish from Cupcake Polish has been named in many people’s Favorites of 2015 and I knew that I needed to try it for myself if there was so much buzz going around. You know that when the masses deem a polish as the top purple of 2015, you need to place an order quick and make that baby yours!

I saw many pictures of Berry Good Looking before the end of the year and I had never thought anything of it. It was a nice purple but it was too fuchsia for my taste, so I never cared. Then it was being featured left to right on every account I follow and then, to top that off, when it made its way into Peachy Polish’s The Best of 2015 list. My mind had been made. The order was placed and it was all a waiting game for the superhero, the mailman.

Today’s post will be a quick one. Every now and then, I feel like I need something cleanse my palette. There have been so many colorful hues that have been going on my nails, I thought I needed some time to take a breather. Something simple and plain, yet beautiful.
