Fancy Gloss - New Thermal Alert!

Today I have a beautiful new Thermal Polish from Fancy Gloss to share with you.  As I write this post the polish hasn't been named yet, but it's simply divine, I couldn't wait to show it to you!




This is a deep red when cold, and a bright red when warm. There are holo shards in there too for an extra bit of sparkle!

Shown in my swatches are two coats plus topcoat.  The polish dries down with a bit of texture, but it's not a lot.  One coat of topcoat and it was all smooth.  The formula and application was great, no issues to report.

I'll post some solo shots below for a closer look.

 I will update this post as soon as more information becomes available.

Colors by Llarowe - April 2017 Polish of the Month - "Living on Borrowed Time"

Hi everyone!!  A new month brings us another Polish of the Month from Colors by Llarowe, and this
one is another stunner (shocker, right?)!



The April Polish of the Month is called "Living on Borrowed Time".  It's described as an orchid purple linear holographic with blue and red flame. The blue flame is strong causing this polish to be a teeny bit of a chameleon as it can look different in various lighting situations or time of day. It  should be noted that it is reactive and can deepen in hue depending on the top coat you use.

My swatches are shown with two coats plus topcoat.





This is a one time pre-order polish that will be launched on the first of April.  The pre-order will be open for 24 hours, from 12:00pm Mountain Time until 12:00pm Mountain Time the next day.  This polish will only be available for purchase on the 1st of each month and then will not be offered again. If you're a purple lover, you definitely won't want to miss this beauty!

The first one I want to share is Champagne & Roses!

These next two are the St. Patrick's Day Duo!  They are Limited Edition and won't be restocked once they sell out for this year.

Leprechaun is a thermal polish which transitions from a light green with yellow\gold shimmer to a yellow with that same beautiful shimmer throughout.  Shown in my swatches are two coats plus topcoat.  This was almost opaque for me on the first coat, but since it was in it's cold, darker state, I did two to be safe.   The formula was wonderful, very smooth and easy to apply.

Luck of the Irish is a beautiful shimmer polish.  It's has golden shimmer with a green flash.  Shown here is two coats plus topcoat.  The formula was great, very easy to apply.

Bluebird Lacquer from Lou It Yourself - Flake It 'Till You Make It

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share with you a beautifully sparkly collection releasing from Bluebird Lacquer by Lou It Yourself, called the Flake It 'Till You Make It collection!


The  Flake It 'Till You Make It collection consists of six flakie\microglitter polishes.  These will be available for preorder on February 17, 2017 at 2pm EST through February 24, 2017, with shipping commencing on February 25th.

They will be available as a set for $50.00 plus shipping or as singles for $9.00 each plus shipping.

Now, lets get into the swatches!

First up is, 24k Gold Plated:  

24k Gold Plated is a copper gold base with tons of flakies and microglitters.  It's shown here with 2 coats plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly.









Blank Account: 

Blank Account is a blueish silver base that has a very strong blue/purple/pink shimmers with tons of flakies and microglitters throughout.  It's shown here with 2 coats plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly.  This one was my favorite of the collection.  I just fell in love with the blue shimmer and flakies.  It's so shimmery and sparkly, I could easily see myself getting beeped at while waiting at a traffic light for day dreaming while playing with my hands to see that sparkle.





Caviar Dreams:

Caviar Dreams is a dark brown base with some subtle blue shimmer and packed with flakies and microglitters.  It's shown here with 2 coats plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly. 




Champagne Wishes:


Champagne Wishes is a champagne gold base packed with flakies and microglitter.  It's shown here with 3 thin coats, plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly. 





Funny Money:

Funny Money is a green base packed with flakies and microglitter.  It's shown here with 3 thin coats plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top,coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly. 





Last but certainly not least is Shine Bright Like a Rhinestone:+

Shine Bright Like a Rhinestone is a silver base with a subtle purple shimmer throughout and is packed with flakies and microglitter.  It's shown here with 3 thin coats plus I used Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat, Top Notch Top Coat.  I have zero formula issues to report, this applied easily and smoothly. 





The Flake It Till You Make It collection is absolutely gorgeous.  I know I was a little repetitive in my application descriptions, but they all had a great, consistent formula across the board.  My pictures really do not do these polishes justice, I felt I didn't capture the sparkle they have very well.  They're definitely way prettier in person.

I  mentioned Bluebird Lacquer's quick dry top coat Top Notch Top Coat was used in all my swatches and I wanted to touch on that a bit.  Top Notch Top Coat dried very quickly and very shiny. I was very pleased with its dry time.  I'm a very, very clumsy person, so a quick dry time is so important to me.  I'll definitely be buying more! 

To recap, these will be available for preorder on February 17, 2017 at 2pm EST through February 24, 2017, with shipping commencing on February 25th.
They will be available as a set for $50.00 plus shipping or as singles for $9.00 each plus shipping, you can find her shop at the link below.
