Cala – ZP823: A soft nude with a kiss of warmth that will flatter most skin tones.
April – ZP824: A light, rosy toned neutral that is a modern take on blush.
Eastyn – ZP825: A subtle grayed grape that is more interesting than mauve and
gives a modern alternative that is ever so wearable.
Misty – ZP827: An easy to wear taupe that is an updated version of gray with
just a touch of green to make it daring.
Ireland – ZP826: A uniquely wearable green that is muted enough to make it subtle
yet still interesting. This green is well-balanced between blue & yellow so it’s
flattering on all skin tones.
Lake – ZP828: A softened blue that gives the effect of serene water with just a
hint of vibrancy to preserve its luminosity.

Here is April!

December 2015 SquareHue Decades Collection really delivers!

Quite an impressive trio for SquareHue's last Decades Collection box of the year! The 2010s box for December 2015 includes, from Left/counter-clockwise: Bird Fling 2010, Baby, Baby, Baby 2010 and Olympiad 2018.

Well, I truly am still recovering a bit from being sick most of December…after moving to our new house mid-November. But neither post office confusion, rain, nor snow (no snow here, it’s to be 75 degrees today in Central Texas) nor dead of night shall keep me from posting nail polish! Today I’m sharing with you the last box of the 2015 Decades Collection, 2010s. What a great way to finish out the collection. Reminder, starting with January, the new collection will be called The Adventure Collection. I’m ready for the trek! But for now, here are the swatches.

This crelly-like red is what I call, Red Dress red! It's glossy, 2 coats, and application was a dream. Cah caw!!!

Deborah Lippmann gift sets are perfect last-minute choices

First, I’d like to tell you all Merry Christmas and happy holidays! It’s been a busy time for us here at the Duncan household. We just moved in to our new house a week before Thanksgiving, had holiday company, then poor little ole me, been sick ever since. Good news is, I’m getting better and I managed somehow to decorate for Christmas. My strength is returning just in time!

Allow me to show you the Deborah Lippmann Undressed Collection LE (available now). I did a full review in October of the Undressed Collection and I can’t emphasize enough that these six perfect little bottles of naked nail nirvana are LE (Limited Edition). You’ll definitely want to get your hands on this cute gift pack for your polish loving friend, and get one for yourself while you are at it! SRP only $34 (a $72 value) Available online at http://www.deborahlippmann.com, and at Barney’s New York, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Sephora stores nationwide while supplies last. BONUS if you act now, purchase the Undressed Set at Deborahlippmann.com and receive a FREE ($12 value) Smooth Operator 4-way nail buffer. Shape, smooth, buff, shine—this multi-tasking buffer lays the groundwork for a perfect manicure and is also a tool for a quick fix for high-shine on the go without nail color. The extra gentle, micro fiber material is easy on the nails. Use the numbered sides of Smooth Operator as follows: 1. Gently shape nail tip. 2. Gently buff ridges on top of nail. 3. Smooth nail surface before applying base coat. 4. Buff to high-shine when you don’t want to wear nail polish. Do not buff to high-shine if you intend to paint your nails.

I love the festive and elegant packaging. This Undressed gift set includes: Flesh For Fantasy, Totally Nude, Born This Way, Bare It All, Natural Woman and Skin Deep.

I’d also like to share this fabulous trio that is, “Dependable. Gentle. Trustworthy.”! It’s the Deborah Lippmann Treat Me Right gift set (LE). Also available in same places as stated above, this SRP is $24 (a $36 value). More on that following the Undressed collection. So let’s revisit this adorable naked creme ensemble. Create the perfect canvas with this limited-edition set. These three must-have, best-selling treatments in fashion sizes give any at-home manicure a salon-professional look. Fashion sizes are 8 ml ea.

Here is a recap of swatches!

Flesh For Fantasy is described as alabaster nude. Naturally, it's gorgeous on any skin tone but I am loving it for my neutral pale skin tone!

Skin Deep is described as sable nude. A statement shade for we who are palefaces, and simply perfect for gorgeous darker skinned beauties.

The set is described as: “The perfect nude nail is at your fingertips…in six all new elegant shades. Our set of 6 full coverage fashion shades flatter any skin tone, creating a graceful, polished (no pun intended) look. From work to weekend, looking natural has never been so glam.” DL also states, “…Contrary to the nudes of the past, there is no one-shade fits all proposition; Deborah expertly developed each color to flatter any skin tone for a graceful, polished look.”

The Treat Me Right gift set includes 3 fashion size bottles for your nail treatments. They include from left: All About That Base CC Base Coat, Cuticle Oil and Addicted to Speed Super Quick-Drying Top Coat.

The Treat Me Right gift set includes 3 fashion size bottles for your nail treatments. They include from left: All About That Base CC Base Coat, Cuticle Oil and Addicted to Speed Super Quick-Drying Top Coat.

I can tell you, All About That Base (is 7-free) not only acts as a corrector and concealer (great for yellowed nails), it provides an amazing base to keep your painted nails looking their tip-top best longer. The Cuticle Oil is a necessity for all well-groomed fingertips and the Addicted to Speed Super Quick-Drying Top Coat provides a high shine option while protecting your mani from smears, smudges and scratches. Everything you need at home for a salon-pro look.

I still hold the same Conclusion! I love the shades and finish of this set. I found a slight difference in the formulas. Although all are fully pigmented and each shade took 2 coats, I found the darker 3 polishes formulas to be better than the paler 3. I don’t think it’s my imagination as I’ve swatched many collections and sometimes because of the shade, it’s just going to HAVE to be different in application due to pigments. The first three shades, Flesh For Fantasy, Totally Nude and Born This Way were thicker and took a bit more finesse to apply without streaks on first coat, let fully dry then apply second. Second coats self levels and dried fully opaque and glossy. The last three (darker shades), Bare It All, Natural Woman and Skin Deep, were thinner (not thin) and struck a perfect balance of opacity and smooth application. Glossy on finish and great to apply. I had no trouble with the brushes in these petites, as they are full size brushes. Favorite shades were Bare It All and Skin Deep.

Introducing Cirque Colors LE Icon Duos for Nordstrom’s Pop-In Opening Ceremony

I was thrilled when I found out I would be reviewing these six glorious shades from the Cirque Colors LE Icon Duos for Nordstrom’s Pop-In Opening Ceremony. This is my first chance to review for Cirque and looking forward to even more swatches and reviews for Cirque creator, Annie Pham. The three duo sets include 1 holographic and 1 creme polish.

Factoid: I’ve had this ready for a few days but the dreaded Thanksgiving “tummy bug” hit me like a brick and sent me to bed for a couple of days. But I’m back running on all cylinders and ready to blog once again!

Let’s take a look! I’ll start with the Oporto and Storm King Icon Duo.

Morgan Taylor Gifted With Style!

While supplies last! Because for $15, this cute Morgan Taylor mini set won’t last long at Loxa Beauty. I have the Gifted With Style pack along with two more (full size) bottles perfectly suited for your holiday manis. (A Little Naughty and All Wrapped Up)

I have to disclose, I swatched these a couple of weeks ago. Right before we had to put the brakes on all things polish so we could move to our new house. So I know you’ll forgive me for this short break. Ugh, break is a bad word around here. I broke off two nails, well, not broke off totally. I chipped a couple in the midst of our move and had to file my nails down to a workable, packable, moveable length! lol They are already growing back.

Let’s start with Gifted With Style!

All Wrapped Up "Gifted With Style" set of minis from Morgan Taylor. A perfect little quad pack of mini polishes. Plus a couple of festive polishes in full size. Every one is perfect for the season. From left: All Wrapped Up in full bottle. In gift pack: Ruby Two-Shoes, I'm So Hot, Tinsel My Fancy, Gifted in Platinum. Full bottle on right: A Little Naughty.

Even though these little pixies were petit bottles, I’ve never had any issues with application. The brushes are great, bottles don’t tip and the formulas are perfect. They are also available in full size for $8.50 ea. And for a limited time, take advantage of the Loxa Beauty BOGO sale!

Here are the first two in the set. The shades just inspire creativity. I know, I’m no awesome nail artist. But for what it’s worth, why not try when you have these fab formulas?! Ruby Two Shoes and Gifted in Plantinum.
