So many Sparkle & Co. dips and plates, so little time!

I know, it’s been awhile since I posted my Sparkle & Co. dip swatches and stamping plates, but it’s been one heck of a summer! We spent a month down at our condo in Florida, and then after an extended closing period, got it sold. My miniature park-like yards around my house have kept me busy as well, although my plumeria collection is lush and beautiful. Even with the month+-long drought and temps in the 100s (even up to 114 degrees), I still managed to keep them lush and green. You’re welcome water company! lol Long story short, I have been swatching up a storm in between all the busy summer fun. Here are a few swatches to catch you up with some of my Sparkle & Co., items I did for owner Christy’s catalog. Note: In the swatches I did with the stamping plates, I used all Sparkle & Co. Luxe polishes underneath the stamps. Those shades of regular Luxe polish (it is regular polish, not dip or gel) were: Sand In My Hair, Red Bow, Denim Dress, Lotta Colada, Pretty Little Snowflake, Santa’s Coal, Hand Me My Shades, I Need Vitamin Sea, Ocean Villa, Best Summer Ever, Barefoot Beauty, I Lost My Flip Flop, Dock Side, November Skies, Fireside Chat, Convertible Coasting.So many done and more coming! But here are a few to we your whistle. Lots of photos, let it load…and load… 😉

And more dips!

That is it for right now. Be on the lookout for Nine gorgeous Flexie Flaky dips and a few more to boot. No end in sight, but that will get me caught up. Thanks for reading and comment which are your favorites!

Beauty Big Bang review, hot summer nail art tools!

I want to start out saying I have been really impressed with the quality of the Stamping polishes and plates provided by Beauty Big Bang. This round I got to try a couple of summer/beach themed XL plates, and a super pigmented black stamping polish. Note: have a deeply pigmented black and a white stamping polish is essential to have in your nail stamping setup. Also, if you are into glowing nails, I mean, like glow-in-the-dark nails, I reviewed a couple of Beauty Big Bang’s glow powder pigments.

I will also have these items listed separately on my Instagram account, so be sure to look for them there as well.

Let’s start with the stamping polish! I found this stamping polish deeply pigmented and easy to transfer. I used it with a clear jelly stamper. J6415TM-2A 9ML Professional Black Nail Stamping Polish Nail Plate Printing Varnish

Next up, a fun summer plate, full of amazing images, stamps very easily with great clarity! Note: all plates come in a beautiful plate sleeve indicating some of the design theme inside, sheathed with a blue film to protect the plate and attached firmly to a plastic card, protecting your fingers from sharp edges. Love that! BBBXL-001 FLAMINGO FRUITS

And yet another summery plate, I love these! You know I’m a summer girl right? 😉 Here is Summer Beach Holiday Rectangle Nail Stamping Plate Mermaid Theme For Manicure BBBXL-002


And for those of you who like to make a glowing entrance, how about a couple of glow pigment powders? You can use these either mixed into a bit of regular clear nail topcoat, or for an even smoother application, mix a tiny bit into clear gel topcoat and cure. Use over any color, but I suggest to apply over a fairly matching shade polish or gel polish. Charge the completed nails with either LED, regular light or sunlight for a few minutes. Effect lasts many hours. I might also add that the amount you receive is pretty generous, about 12g, and you will want to transfer the powder into a small tight closing pot, like those for gems and glitters. That is my only wish, that these come in a pot instead of a bag, or maybe an option for a small up charge. My photos are a bit rough, hard to capture the beauty in the dark! lol Check it out first the hot coral pigment: J2103-7A

And the beautiful aqua glow, J2103-2A

Zoya Element collection for Fall 2018

Zoya Element for Fall 2018 is a cool toned and rosy, berry-filled collection of polishes. The latest collection from Zoya featuring an array of blush toned mauves, deep sultry hues and mystical metallics.

I have to admit when I heard the name of the collection, before I saw the media release, I was expecting something completely different going off the name. I figured element means elements from the world, like air (sunsets and frosty mornings), earth (warm tones of soil, rocks), fire (toasted marshmallows, wood and trees…etc. But I was SO off! lol All in all, I liked the collection, but preferred the last six shades in Sampler B. I guess I’m just not that “rosey” 😉 Let’s take a look! All in two coats. Name of color on the photo.

First six, Sampler A:

And Sampler B (my fave!)

DEVIN ZP952: a steel blue with hints of multicolored shimmer in a dense foil finish.

RUMOR ZP953: a full-coverage mauve taupe with a subtle shimmer – a perfect classic shade for Fall.

JENNA ZP954: a full-coverage dusty rose pink cream with blue undertones.

RUTHIE ZP955: a full-coverage raspberry rose cream.

MARYANN ZP956: a full-coverage pink-toned rose with soft glowing shimmer.

KENDRA ZP957: a beautiful full-coverage marsala cream.

ALYSSA ZP958: a full-coverage red-toned purple cranberry cream.

DONNIE ZP959: a full-coverage purple-toned sangria cream.

MAEVE ZP960: a full-coverage concord grape cream.

RACHAEL ZP961: a full-coverage mulberry berry cream.

LEIGHTON ZP962: a deeply saturated blackened aubergine cream.

GARDNER ZP963: a deep periwinkle with a vibrant magenta shimmer in a dense foil finish.
