Hello, lovelies! Today I have some great product from Londontown to review. I was aware of the brand, having read some reviews for them on some of my favorite blogs and I was really excited to try them out myself. I have four really nice creme polishes, a great fast-drying topcoat and an enigmatic bottle of Instant Smudge Fix (sounds like elven magic, right?) Read on to get my take on these brands and to get up more closely and personally than you ever needed to be to a smudged nail!

Sinful Colors – Valentine 2016 Picks

My local Walgreens sucks for Sinful Colors. They hardly get any of the small collection displays, which makes it pretty frustrating when I am trying to get my grubby paws on new polish. I finally found a couple of the displays (Love Bites and Live in Color) after some searching, but ended up being pretty underwhelmed by the new colors. The Love Bites display only had one new polish, but there were a couple of pinks I didn’t have. I only picked up one color from the Live in Color selection, since I found them a bit underwhelming.

Trust Fund Beauty – Champagne Problems; Swatch and Review Plus Valentine Nail Art

Trust Fund Beauty - Champagne Problems

The Allure Beauty Box is one of my monthly treats. There hasn’t been a month yet where I didn’t get at least 2-3 products that I absolutely loved. Unfortunately (and I tell them every time they give me a survey) they do not include enough nail polish! It’s been months since the last polish (Butter London – The Sweet Spot). Luckily they managed to stave off my cancellation a bit longer with the inclusion of Trust Fund Beauty – Champagne Problems! Continue reading

Spa Ritual Gold - Last Tango

press_sample
I’m a big fan of Spa Ritual nail polish for a number of reasons, so I was really excited when they reached out to me with a sample of their 2-step Flexible Color long lasting manicure system, Spa Ritual Gold. Like other similar systems, this uses a coat of color and a high shine topcoat for a gel-like, long-lasting finish. I don’t often wear my nail polish for more than a day, so I buckled down for the long haul and prepared my mind to leave my nails painted with this polish for multiple days!

I’m a sucker for a good sale, especially for indie brands I have been dying to try – and when I see must-have colors! So, it comes as no surprise that when I saw that Different Dimension was doing a 50% off sale, I had to dive in and this is one of the beauties that came to live with me.

Sinful Colors Partial Winter 2015 Swatches and Review Part 1: The Solids

Sinful Colors Holiday 2015

Hello again! Today I am posting part one of my swatches for the Sinful Colors Winter 2015. This collection has 25 polishes in it(26 if you find them at Walgreens). Completely UN-shockingly, most of them are re-promotes. By my count (please correct me if I am wrong) there are five new polishes this go-round and one of them is a Walgreens exclusive, so you’ll need a mule to get iti f you don’t have any Walgreens stores in your area. Let’s get started with part one!
