How about these beauties from Super Nails?!

I am thrilled to bring you some more beauties from KC at Super Nails! Today I will share with you another stunning birthstone glitter, January Garnet (my birthstone, yay!). As well as six very creative shades, with 5 glitters and one crelly/glitter. Those are Peacock, Unicorn’s Mane, Anti V-Day, French Kiss, Me-Ow! and Rainbow Clouds. So here we go, starting with my birthstone!

I'm loving KC's timing on this since it's my birthday tomorrow and Garnet is my birthstone. Here is one coat over SpaRitual's Spellbound.

Single this Valentine’s Day? No worries, Anti V-day has you covered.

Anti V-day is a fun glitter whether you use it over a dark shade or light. I used Genevieve a dark grey creme by Zoya. Can you spot my anti v-day references? LOL

French Kiss, c’est magnifique!

Ooh lala! French Kiss is a fun pinked base glitter with little hearts. Sheer enough to go nicely over a french mani. I used Romper room by Essie.

Rainbow Clouds is soft and delicate. Perfect for spring!

Rainbow Clouds is such a delicate and soft crelly. Great formula!

Since these two seemed to both fall into that skygazind, day dreamy category, I had to group these two cuties together.  Rainbow Clouds is described as: "White crelly polish base with pastel rainbow shreds, including pink, purple, blue, green and yellow." Unicorn's Mane is described as: "Clear polish base with iridescent and bright rainbow short bars, including red, pink, yellow, green, and blue."

So, here’s the thing. I’ve feared bar glitters in the past. But this one, oh my goodness. How fun is this? So easy to apply and so festive!

I have not used a lot of bar glitters in the past, but this one had me at "hello, I'm a Unicorn, want a ride?" LOL I wanted you to see how great this colorful glitter topper is over dark or light undies, gradient style or total topper.

I saved one of the best for last. My little model, Hermione, was made for this polish theme with it’s cute little leopard spot glitters!

Me-Ow! is a perfect glitter for a gradient mani. I tried my hand at a bit of dry brushing for a furry effect.

Well, it had to be done. How could I NOT use my Hermione for a model here? She obliged quite nicely. Me-ow! is described as: "Clear polish base with holographic silver leopard spot, black leopard spot and metallic gold leopard spot glitters in a sea of metallic and holo gold and silver hex and square glitters in all different sizes."

Vanessa by Shimmer Polish is perfect for January!

Vanessa by indie polish brand, Shimmer Polish, is a dark and glittery polish that can actually be easily built up in two coats to full opacity. It’s also a great for accent art and beyond! Every single one of Shimmer’s glitters are smooth as silk to apply and very dense without being sticky or stringy. Really they are superior formulas, and somehow, all that glitter and easy to remove!

Oh my goodness, Glitter Lambs never ceases to amaze me with their creativity. That’s what is so fun about indie polishes. They consistently think outside the box.

Unicorns Love Sugar Cubes is described as, "Unicorns Love Sugar Cubes Glitter Topper Indie Nail Polish is an iridescent shifting rainbow glitter hex base with White Dots, White Hex .008, Holographic hex in red, blue and green, White Stars, and White Squares."

Unicorns Love Sugar Cubes is so perfectly named! I painted her over a tri color mani just for fun. Maybe Unicorns really do have rainbow horns? Who knows but I'm pretty sure they do love sugar cubes! ;-)

Four sparklers from Alchemy Lacquers

I finally got a chance to become a “lab assistant” today for Alchemy Lacquers. The four lab samples I’m presenting are what I categorize as “Blingity bling bling”! Each one having it’s own character, texture and personality. They are Night Fire, Kelpie Seaweed, Gilded Lagoon and Delphinium.

Night Fire, Kelpie Seaweed, Gilded Lagoon and Delphinium.

Night Fire, Kelpie Seaweed, Gilded Lagoon and Delphinium.

First we’ll start with this glowing beauty, Night Fire. The finished texture sort of reminds me of a cross between the new Magical Pixie dusts and Bubbly polishes from Zoya, just a smidge smoother, but with all of the shine.

Night Fire is a nearly neon pink in a pink base, with pink glitters, holographic sparkle and it screams, "Look at me, I'm fancy!"

I included photos in outdoor shade and sun for each of these polishes today so you could see how the light plays a part of their personalities.

I found the formula on the medium thick side as to be expected with a glitter loaded jelly, but totally manageable. Two coats and you’re done for a shiny textured finish. Add a topcoat like Gelous for a smooth look. This is a soon-to-be released item.

Next comes a mysterious green stunner from the Alchemical Imaginarium: Water Fae Collection, Kelpie Seaweed. It’s described as “…A darkened linear holographic nail lacquer with a green, blue, violet multichrome finish. Often found in the lochs of the Green Isles, Kelpies are actually shape shifting water horses. The majestic white horses with striking blue manes can take human form, and when they do, you can always identify theme by their hair, which as a very rare ingredient, seaweed!”

Kelpie Seaweed took me by surprise.

The first coat had me a bit concerned as it was on the thick side as loaded with micro glitters as it was. It was a tad tricky to apply the first coat but dried quickly. The second coat filled in perfectly and all was right with the world! Beautiful!

Oh my! My fave of the bunch, soon-to-be released Gilded Lagoon. It looked gorgeous in the bottle so I was pretty jazzed about this one. It has those dreamy mermaidy colors I love, plus gold.

If anyone knows where I can find the actual Gilded Lagoon, let me know. If it looks like this, I'm in!

Gilded Lagoon is like having mermaid scales on your fingers.

Gilded Lagoon is just as sparkly in the shade!

Gilded Lagoon is just even more sparkly in the sunshine!

And lastly we have Delphinium. Just like the flower, a gorgeous blue. This is one I struggled with. It’s very thick and the first coat did not cooperate with me. Two coats will do it and I found that it’s easier for the first coat in bypassing a base coat. Two coats is plenty with a coat of Gelous in between. The pretty payoff is worth the work. So I mushed on. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Delphinium, hard to pronounce, easy on the eyes.

She really sparkles in the sunshine. Definitely an attention getter.

I especially love reading indie polish makers’ back stories of how they got started, what inspired them, and how supportive their families are in their endeavors. Be sure to hop over to Rebecca’s “About” page while you’re shopping at her Etsy store. It’s a great little read!

Alchemy Lacquers are 5 free, cruelty free, hand-mixed nail lacquers, all handmade to order out of Rebecca’s lab in Philedelphia, Pennsylvania.

Press Release for upcoming “The Beauty Quartet” Subscription box

A new subscription box you’re going to love! Here are the details from them, to you! Cool huh?!

The beauty quartet image

Q: Who came up with the idea for this box? Was it something that was done for fun or was there a need in the community that the founder saw and wanted to fulfill?

A: the idea for the box came from me, Esther of PhLL. I personally have been really into subscription boxes lately, and I wanted to create a special luxe type box that would combine the creativity of multiple brands in one place. There are many different boxes in the indie market, but I think we have something unique. (see below)

Q: Will the brands change out or will it always be Philly Loves Lacquer, Smokey Mountain Lacquers, Digital Nails, and Northern Star Polish?

A: Right now, these four brands will be permanent. Depending on how well the box is received, I may look to add, rotate, or feature in the future, however, I see a lot of rotation in the sub boxes offered these days, and I thought it would be nice to have consistency.

Q: The description is a little ambiguous. Is it a monthly subscription of 4 themed lacquers and then every month (every 2 months) you get 4 themed + 4 more (for a total of 8)? Or is it a bi-monthly subscription of 9 lacquers sent every other month (4 themes + 4 more).

A: I had a hard time coming up with a description originally, since bi-monthly could mean either twice a month or every two months. So, that being said, this is 4 bottles of polish (one from each brand), plus 4 extras (one from each brand), shipped every two months. The extras will be anything from matching accessories, handmade personal care products (cuticle oil, lotions, lip balms, etc), nail art tools, candles, etc. The timeline of the box right now is October/Halloween, December/Holidays, February/Valentine’s Day, and so on.

Q: Why every two months? Why not have it be monthly?

A: I feel like the monthly box is the norm for indie subscription boxes. When you’re working with a product like indie nail polish, there are a lot of factors to think about. I decided to make it every two months because I wanted to make sure that the four of us were putting out the best products possible, and with that came making sure we all had enough time to put out said product. You have to factor in a lot of things when doing something like this. You have to account for blogger coverage (and the time it takes on their end, because their time is just as valuable, if not more, than ours), testing and lead time, and life happening in general. A lot of things can happen in 4 weeks that could jeopardize the box, but by having it every two months instead, we’re making it easier on ourselves the makers, and also easier on the wallets of our customers.

Q: Are the 4 polishes exclusive to The Beauty Quartet or are they polishes already in the core lines of the brands?

A: the 4 polishes will be exclusive to the box, and will not be available for sale outside of the box. Since it will be purchased by pre-order, we will have an exact amount made, and any extras will only be for replacements if the polish is damaged in transit.

Q: How will people pre-order in September? Will there be a supplementary website?

A: The BQB will be available for pre-order on the Philly Loves Lacquer website. http://phillyloveslacquer.com

Q: Will this subscription service run through Paypal with automatic payments (like A Box, Indied) or will it be pay at checkout only? If the latter, will people who have subscribed to the last box get a priority to order the next box before new people?

A: The “subscription” will be pay at checkout. This allows people to buy it only if they want to, and not be locked in for a certain amount of time. The pre-order runs for 15 days, which allows everyone a chance to purchase the box. There will not be priority for those who ordered previously, as it is first come first serve.

Q: Will photos of the polishes/boxes be available during the pre-order or for people to look at?

A: Absolutely! This is *NOT* a mystery box by any means. We have hand selected several bloggers to receive a full box to swatch and review, and there will be plenty of coverage before the pre-order begins to allow everyone to see what will be available and to determine whether they would like to purchase the box or not. We’ll be plastering photos all over our Facebook pages, Instagram accounts, and in nail polish groups on Facebook and Reddit.

Q: Will individual polishes be available for sale at any point through Beauty Quartet or through the individual brands?

A: I am not 100% clear on the question…but I know that each of our respective shops will maintain normal operation. As I mentioned before, however, the polishes in the BQB will only be available in the box and not for individual purchase.

Q: Will boxes be available at the same time each month or will people need to watch X site for updates?

A: The BQB timeline will always be as follows: pre-order begins on the 1st and runs to the 15th, and the box will ship on the 1st of the next month, so for the first box, pre-order runs Sept 1-15, and it ships on Oct 1st. For the second box, pre-order will run Nov 1-15, and will ship on Dec 1st. For the 3rd box, pre-order will run Jan 1st-15th, and will ship Feb 1st. The BQB will always be sold in the Philly Loves Lacquer shop, and you’ll always find updates on all of our brand’s Facebook pages and other social media.

Q: I know it says international shipping is available; are there any countries that are excluded?

A: As of right now, no. This may be reevaluated as time goes on, as I know there are a couple countries where it could take more than a month to arrive. I have not personally sent to any of these particular countries before, but there’s a first for everything.

Q: Will tracking information be available for the USA boxes? How about international?

A: US orders will be shipped via USPS Priority Flat Rate, with tracking, and will come with insurance of $100. International orders will be shipped via USPS First Class International. The following countries will have tracking available to them: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Great Britain & Northern Ireland, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, and Switzerland. International customers will also have the option of adding insurance for a nominal fee, or upgrading to Priority International (cost will depend on country).

Q: How will you handle customs for international orders?

A: International orders will be declared as gifts, with a value of $45 per box. We will not be responsible for customs tax, duties, or other fees, nor will we be responsible if your package is confiscated.

Gilded Raspberry Smoothie, my delicious custom lacquer from Super Nails!

My first custom polish from Super Nails is exactly what I envisioned. Raspberries, one of my favorite fruits! And I’m always drawn to pinks and gold together. It’s just a stunning combination so when KC told me I could come up with a custom polish, I knew right then what I wanted. She really delivered!

I got to name her. So Gilded Raspberry Smoothie it is! I wish my own smoothie I made for the photo looked more like it.

I got to name her. So Gilded Raspberry Smoothie it is! I wish my own smoothie I made for the photo looked more like it.

Obviously from the photo as you can see my smoothie didn’t have the glorious pink shade as my polish. Maybe if I’d used raspberry sherbet. 😉 This polish had just the right amount of gold flakies I asked for. The results were spot on.

Amazingly opaque.

Amazingly opaque.

As you can see, the gold was  just enough to let the beautiful raspberry cream sing. Only one coat! I used Gelous Top Coat to smooth out the finish, although this creation is glossy on it's own.

As it goes with flakey loaded lacquers…say THAT ten times fast, I dare you! Lol there will always be the tiniest bit of bumpiness, so I added Gelous as a top coat. I’m going to hate to take this stunning polish off today but I’ve got more swatching to do. Super opaque in one coat, the formula is slightly thick but easy to apply. Flaky dispersion is perfect! This gilded beauty is a treasure! Here’s a closeup.

A glance up close of Gilded Raspberry Smoothie.

A glance up close of Gilded Raspberry Smoothie.

I’m not sure how it works with KC’s customs whether she replicates them in mass, or by request. But she has the formula now and if you’d like a bottle of your own, ask her! KC’s indie polish business based in Michigan, is fairly new, 2013, but she knows what she’s doing. She majored in Business and Entrepreneurship in college. Her polish blends are made up fresh to order and she does customs on request. Her polishes are human and environmentally friendly. As she states on her stores web site, “All Super Nails polishes are 5-FREE, vegan, and free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde-resin, camphor, and carmine. So… beautiful nail polish, no cancer, or abused animals = win for everyone!” That’s what we like to hear.

Remember, I soon will be posting the other three Birthstone polishes she sent me, and a glitter topper she knew would be close to my heart and it’s AMAZING! Here is where you can shop for your Super Nail products.
