Stella Chroma ~ The Nutcracker Trio

*Provided for review

nutcrackertrio

Hi polish lovers 🙂 Do you see these? FLAKIES! Each polish here has a different type of flakes and Pam knocked them out of the park ❤ This is The Nutcracker Trio. Sit back and enjoy some flakie goodness.

 

Sugarplum Fairy “is a delicate, pale lavender crelly with red-green-purple iridescent flakies and green-yellow shimmer.” This one is super delicate and feminine. The flakies give a soft glow from within. They are like little flecks of pastel colored glass. Just breathtaking. It is a little sheer but has a great formula. 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. Sugarplum Fairy will be $12 USD.

Mother Ginger “is a bright blue jelly polish with red-orange-blue iridescent flakies and green-yellow shimmer.” Holy mother of everything ❤ Do you see the flakies in the bottle?!?! I couldn’t stop moving my fingers while swatching. The shift is just intense! The squishy factor is off the charts ❤ For a jelly, the formula is phenomenal! I used 3 thin coats plus glossy and matte top coat for my swatches. Mother Ginger will be $12 USD.

Herr Drosselmeier “is a pale grey crelly packed with red-orange-yellow iridescent flakies and red-gold shimmer.” Yup, this one is my favorite. It’s just simply stunning. It’s shifty, flakie, and has a base color that goes with everything ❤ I don’t really have words for this one. I just love it!! 3 thin coats with glossy and matte top coats for my swatch. Herr Drosselmeier will be $12 USD.

Polish Pickup May 2018 ~ Joy Lacquer

*Provided for review

logo

Hello 🙂 It’s another rainy, yucky day here in CT. I am really hoping that you have warmer weather! So, I just shared a collage and video of this Joy Lacquer in the Polish Pickup Pack Facebook page and y’all went nuts! Is it because of the inspiration or because of the polish itself? I will totally take both as an answer!! Let’s get right to it.

Anthony Kied-YAASS! is a fabulous candy-apple red jelly polish packed with both opalescent and chrome shifting flakies. The inspiration is the Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Blood Sugar Sex Magic. This album includes the popular songs: “Under The Bridge”, “Give It Away”, and “Breaking The Girl”. This album has since gone platinum 7 times!! Let me tell you my favorite part: First coat is RED! Not pink. Not magenta, RED! If a lighter red is what you want, one coat of this is perfect. 2 coats makes it a little deeper and adds flakie dimension. You really won’t need a 3rd coat but you know me. I used 3 coats plus top coat purposely because I love flakies. I wanted the most depth I could get. It’s SO SQUISHY ❤ The flakies make the polish look like it has been sprinkled with chili pepper flakes! How freaking clever.

Fabulous right?! And even better, you get a few nail vinyls/decals with each bottle of Anthony Kied-YAASS! The decals will be in the shape of one of Anthony Kiedas’ smaller, but very recognizable tattoos. A black asterisk symbol (or Star Of Affinity). This symbol was also later used as a band logo.

Are you sold yet? I am super happy to have this one. I am wearing it on my sad little nubs, matte, right now! You will have to buy it to see though because I didn’t take pics of it lol! The price for this polish, including vinyls, is $11.00 USD. There will be a cap of 100 bottles so you better act fast! Polish Pickup opens May 4th and closes May 7th 2018.  I will leave the links below! Have a “Highly Fantastic” weekend 😉

Moonflower Polish ~ Spring Holos

*Provided for review

moonflowerpolish-logo-horizontal

Hello Lovelies ❤ It’s the weekend!! Any plans? I am at the in laws dog sitting 🙂 I love it so much. They have a boxer named Brisco and I swear he is my best friend<3<3<3 The in laws are on their way to pick up a new baby boxer right now! So excited 🙂 I am also really excited to bring you these new stamping polishes from Nadia at Moonflower Polish! I am still obsessing over the formula of these polishes! There is 4 iridescent, duochromey, holo jellies in this set. Let’s get to them 🙂

First things first, formula. AMAZING! These are 2-3 coat polishes but most worked for me with just 2! Which I think says a lot because I polish my coats very thin! You can’t even tell that its a jelly base really. It is super smooth and opaque. Not solid, but not sheer. And of course they are made to stamp. They do perfectly ❤ “For stamping, the effect should be a shimmery glow over a dark base or a bright pastel over lighter bases. If used as regular polish, 1 coat over black will enhance the duochrome shifts.”  Ok seriously this time….

First polish is Amapola. “Reddish jelly holographic base that shifts red-pink-orange. Amapola means hibiscus in Spanish.” This color is so different. It’s like a rusty, rosey, reddish-pink. This one was the sheerest. I used 3 thin coats plus top coat.

Next is this fantastic blue! “Crepúsculo – blue jelly holographic base with a purple-blue-teal shift. Crepúsculo means twilight in Spanish.” I used 2 buttery coats and top coat.

I think this next one will be a favorite. Everyone loves a good purple. “Mariposa – purple jelly holographic base that shifts purple-silver-blue shift. Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish.” This one was also 2 thin perfect coats with top coat.

The last one is my favorite!! “Tortuga – yellow leaning green holo jelly base with a green-yellow-gold shift. Tortuga means turtle in Spanish.” This one is AWESOME! I have had it on my Cinderella hand for more than a week… by itself!! I never do that 🙂 So. Freaking. Pretty! I used 2 perfect coats with top coat for this baby. I forgot to take a single macro so I will update this when I do! This one has the strongest shift!!

Sassy Pants Polish ~ Polish Pickup March 2018

*Provided for review

Sunday… a pretty crappy one too 😦 Rainy and chilly. Totally ready for warmer weather! Maybe this ocean looking polish from Sassy Pants Polish will help!! So, this is my first time using this brand. Wow was I impressed ❤ This polish is a part of the March 2018 Polish Pickup and will only be available from March 2nd – 5th 2018! HERE is where you can get the info about PPU and how it works! The theme for March is Books!!! Let’s get to that polish.

Wherethewildthingsare

Where The Wild Things Are is the inspiration behind Wild Things. It’s an azure blue, holo, jelly polish with micro holo glitters and shreds. My favorite part is the purple/red shimmer! The formula was SOOOOO good for a jelly polish. The first coat was a bit sheer but it built up in 3 thin coats. It did not get totally opaque but the squishiness and glitter will keep you occupied so you won’t even mind the VNL 🙂 It is like looking into a carribean ocean. 3 coats with top coat!
