Pretty Serious Cosmetics Nailentology Collection

I had the delight of reviewing the Pretty Serious Cosmetics Nailentology collection which is comprised of three polishes.  This brand is divine!  I can't wait to try more.  If you'd like to see live application of these lovelies, you can do so here:

The first in the bunch is called Eye of Copernicus which is an extremely dark navy packed with gorgeous shimmer.  This is magic in two coats and I wore this all week with no chipping.

Next up we have Khepri's Amulet, a lustrous jewel-toned blue green.  I'm showing you two coats and it's so delicious.

Lastly we have The Dragon's Curse, a spectacular light green illuminated with a gold glow.  This is two easy coats.

I only wish this collection had at least 5 more polishes.  If you haven't given this brand a try, I really hope you do.  Over and out

Saturday Random Swatchfest 3/7/2015

Today's post is on the polishes from my Saturday Random Swatchfest on March 7th.  We'll look at ten random polishes from my collection that haven't appeared anywhere on my blog.  If you'd like to look at live application of all these polishes, you can do so here:

Cajun Shrimp is a divine hot red/coral from OPI and it applies so smoothly in two coats.  This is perfect all year round, but especially for spring and summer.  A

Maybelline Mauve in Manhattan is up next.  This is two easy coats and there is something so soothing about this shade.  A

This fun and funky glitter from Sinful Colors is called Standing Bloom Only.  It's not really my shade of orange as it has a bit too much yellow in it but it's absolutely filled with glitter and is totally unique in my collection.  This is three coats.  B-

For gold/yellow today we're looking at Butter London Marbs.  This is two easy coats and I love how much yellow there is in this gold.  A

China Glaze Watermelon Rind is this beautiful deep sea green that is just packed with shimmer.  I've shown you two coats and you could possibly go for a third if you want this to appear even a bit more rich.  A

Next up we're looking at Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Eyes, a gorgeous blue with gold shimmer and tiny specks of blue glitter.  A

This perfect purple cream is Wet n' Wild Who is Ultra Violet?  This one is so great at two coats and it's only a buck!  A

Our neutral polish this week is Sinful Colors Vacation Time.  This is a great, warm nude and it's so creamy and easy at two coats.  Just a few dollars at the drugstore, this one's a must-have for nude-lovers.  A

This sparkling wonder is Zoya Cosmo.  This isn't totally opaque at two coats and it's super chunky.  I don't think I have another glitter that is as divinely cosmic as this one, making it's name perfection.  A

For my A+ polish this week, I present Illamasqua Nomad which is one of my first Illamasqua polishes and it really lived up to the hype.  First off the color is breathtaking but the formula is like butter.  If you can catch these at a steal on Hautelook, which is where I found them, I really recommend the brand.

Hope you found something here you like.  I'll see you next time.  Over and out.

KB Shimmer Spring 2015 Live Application

KB Shimmer's Spring 2015 collection is made up of 12 soft and sparkling shades for Spring.  We have a mix of cream/glitters and holographic polishes that make up the collection.  You can watch live application of all the polishes here on my channel:

We'll start out with a dynamic holographic called Blue-d Lines.  This is two easy coats, but you can even get away with one.  The linear holographic effect is so strong on this one!

Another holographic in this collection is this light rose with scattered holographic bits in it.  It's called Blush Money and I'm showing you two coats.

Cool Hand Cuke is up next.  It's a light green cream with bits of white, yellow, purple, green, and dark pink glitters of all sizes in it.  What a fun mix here.  I'm showing you two coats here, but I think it probably needs three to be more opaque.

Next we have Funky Cold Patina which is a gorgeous teal on the deep side that's filled with orange/copper, and blues of a number of hues in it.  This is two coats and again it could probably use three.

I'm So Sweet Pea is our next cream/glitter.  This is such a great combination of purple, deep teal, and peach glitters with a barely blue-tinted base.  I'm showing you two coats, but again it could need a third coat.

The third holographic polish in the collection is this beautiful olive/spring green with linear effect.  It's called Ins And Sprouts.  It applies in 2 easy coats.

Meow or Never is very similar to I'm So Sweet Pea, with a subtle difference, it has no deep teal or peach glitter.  Again, this is two coats.

They included a pink cream with red, blue, white, purple glitters and a fun surprise pop of turquoise stars.  It's called Sweet Egg-scape and this is two coats.

Last for the holographics, they gave us another gorgeous linear-shifting polish called Thistle Be the Day.  This time the polish is a soft lilac and I've shown you two coats.

This polish came to a surprise to me.  It's a peach cream filled with red, green, purple, and yellow glitters.  I've shown you two coats.

Finally we'll look at the lovely blue cream/glitter called Wind Swarm.  It has white, purple, red, and yellow glitters swirling around inside.  I've shown you two coats.

I was so impressed with this collection.  All polishes are available at

Have a great day and I'll see you back next time.  Over and out.
