4 gorgeous lacquers from wHet by Me! Bath

If you’ve never had the opportunity to try wHet nail lacquers, you NEED to get your hands on them. I have never been disappointed by any of them. Highly glossy finishes, rich pigments and longlasting wear, you can’t go wrong with these polishes and they are worth every penny. Let’s get right to them.

I’ll start with the gorgeously reformulated pink creme, Ethereal.

Only needing 2 coats, the newly reformulated, highly pigmented high shine Ethereal is a perfect pink creme.

I love a good gold polish and although I supposed I own plenty, they all have different qualities. I love Opulent because the formula is so superior to many I’ve tried.

Opulent is that "must-have" gold. Super easy to apply, rich and luxurious, only 2 coats.

And last, but a new fave of mine, Yesternight! Wow, I can’t wait to try this in the fall. Such a deep blackberry and since it’s sort of a jelly the shine is never-ending. Of course it’s perfect for any time of year, but I think it has Fall written all over it.

I was so pleasantly surprised with Yesternight. I really thought it was going to be black, but it's a rich blackberry jelly-like polish and is very pigmented and super glossy. Only 2 coats.

Three gorgeous new cremes from Madam Glam

Some of the many things I love about indie polish companies is their constant vision for thinking outside the box, pushing their own limits and constantly adding to their inventory of wonderful shades and finishes. Madam Glam is one of those companies that continue to bring it all to the table. Today I’ll be sharing some super glossy cremes. All perfect for the office or a beach party! Let’s see what we have!

From Left, Falling For You, Underground Queen and Rose Pethal. All three amazing formulas on these cremes.

First up is fast becoming one of my favorite shade types for spring and summer. Even without a tan, it makes you seem like you have one! Here is Falling For You. I think of this one as a bleached neon type of shade. Either way, it works for me.

Falling For You is described as: "Soft Baby Pink. It's like the beginning of a romance : soft, simple, amazing! The perfect pink for every romantic out there." I reached full opacity in two smooth coats, super glossy! It's quite bright without being a true neon, so no flat finishes here!

Another glossy pale peachy pink is Rose Pethal. Very neutral as far as nudes go and I think it would work on many skin tones.

Rose Pethal is described as: "Soft Pink Romantic yet playful, this light Pink is a must have for everyday occasion. So simple and so stylish!" I reached full opacity in this smooth applying creme in two coats. Super glossy as well!

And last for this post is a rich grey that is super glossy and a dream to apply. Underground Queen is a perfect grey on its own or as a moody base for nail art.

Underground Queen is described as: "Gunmetal Grey You always think outside the box? Then this shade is perfect for any season and occasion. Sophistication to another level!" As with the other two cremes I shared in this post, this applied totally opaque in two coats and dries super glossy!

SquareHue Decades Collection 1930s

The month of April brings is the 1930s from the SquareHue Decades Collections monthly subscription box. And boy is it bright and happy! Each month subbies get three full size polishes related to the changing themes. For 2015 SquareHue is featuring a different decade. Fresh on the heels of the 1929 stock market crash, folks going from feast to famine experienced many changes. They found new strength in themselves and community, and fun and fashion shared the spotlight with new technologies and pastimes. And just like changing fashions, the world’s focus was centered around recovery, staying afloat and avoiding another war. On a lighter note, let’s take a fun look at the colors inspired by that decade.

What brilliant shades to brighten the memories of the past! The tomato soup orangish red is called Boardgame. That lovely freen with blue notes is WPA. and that grapey purple is Tomorrowland.

I love the attention to detail SquareHue gives to its labeling. You know exactly which month and collection your bottle belongs to.

First up is what I would definitely call a tomato red. Not in the orange family but you can definitely see it in this glossy red creme called Boardgame.

Boardgame is a brilliant orangey red creme gloss. The formula is on the thin side but super easy to apply and very forgiving. 2-3 coats to a perfect finish. In the 1930s, families were still trying to recover from economic turmoil, and the introduction of inexpensive board games became the norm for family fun. Games like dominoes, card games, and the first editions of Monopoly and Scrabble soon occupied playtime for kids and adults alike.

Next up is WPA. It’s a great creme, not quite as glossy as the other two, but a cool medium toned green.

WPA is a 2-coat freen creme. It's a great formula. WPA of the 1930s stands for Work Profress Administration, part of the "New Deal" getting people back to work.

And lastly we have that gorgeous grape, a slightly dusky purple called Tomorrowland. The formula is much like WPA, and is opaque in two coats.

This is Tomorrowland. I love this kind of purple. And the formula is super smooth. In the 1939 Worlds Fair, the Tomorrowland exhibit gave us a glimpse I to the future.

Just for fun, I did a dry marble accent nail using all three shades. A culmination of the hopes and dreams of the 1930s.

Here is a combo dotticure and dry marble using all three shades. I love that none of the shades are related but seem to compliment  each other in this nail art.

Venique, where have you been all my life?

I’m practically speechless…not! 😉 Actually, I’m so amazed at the glossy goodness that is Venique I want everyone to know about it. I have four beauties to share with you today. These formulas are smooth and consistent, glossy as heck and all very pigmented, except for one. But the beautiful color overshadowed the need for more than one or two coats. So, here we go!

Designer Trend is a high gloss creme lacquer. This rich warm red has vamp written all over it!

Designer Trend and a little black dress. What more does a girl need?

Designer Trend, yes you do need a color like this!

Designer Trend, yes you do need a color like this! Sort of hard to capture the color temp of red cremes. This photo may look a bit different than the images on the site. But this is actually quite close.

Next is a gorgeous gilded red called Spying On High Heels. A metallic marvel if I do say so myself. It contains a mother load of gold within a warm red shimmer. Glossy and a thicker formula than the cremes, easy application…super easy!

Spying on High Heels with a little drippy paint accent for a bit of serendipity...or as I call it, "Serendrippity"! Lol

Here’s a mermaidy metallic shimmer for you, Emerald Sea! It’s a glossy, blue hued teal with a strong shimmery effect. It is sheer but not thin on application. I used three coats but it’s worth it!

Emerald Sea is dripping with Caribbean hues.

Last but not least, sexy Sky High Spike! This glossy plum creme is a winner. You don’t have to wear spike heels to be this stunning, but it couldn’t hurt! Again, it’s a plummy red, and photos are hard to capture the exact shade. With the lighting I had it seemed to change with the whim of the sun!

Sky High Spike is so shiny, sort of patent leather shiny!

Overall, I loved each and every one of these polishes and I can’t wait to share more with you. They are pretty amazing and on the first coat you also be thinking, “where have you been all my life?”

Loxa Beauty has this to say about Venique Nail Lacquer. “It is made with Sil-Tek, a silicone-based ingredient that causes the polish to be flexible. It’s a polish that guards against the annoying chipping and flaking of a regular manicure. Plus, Sil-Tek works with the infused diamond dust ingredient for an extra shiny finish. When the original shine is lost, all you have to do is buff your nails a little, and the shine returns! With one coat drying in just 4 minutes, Venique Nail Lacquer is truly a revolutionary nail polish!

Wanderlust by wHet is an inky beauty!

Wanderlust by wHet is an inky beauty!

Wanderlust by wHet is a glossy, deep deep blue lacquer. As deep and mysterious as the restless ocean. Looking at the bottle, you can see a slight shimmer of purple. But it really doesn’t show up on the nail like it does in the bottle. No worries. You’ll still be captivated by the blackened blue. What does Wanderlust mean? Look on the bottom of the bottle!

I think I have some of this in me from reading the definition. I do love to travel!

I think I have some of this in me from reading the definition. I do love to travel!

Throughout my life, I’ve traveled quite a bit. Planes, trains and automobiles, I’m always ready to explore someplace new. Of course I prefer places with sand, water and warm tropical breezes! I’m especially partial to the ocean. So I’m natural drawn to blues. Just talking about it makes me ready to pack.

Always ready for the next trip!

Always ready for the next trip!

The formula, as expected, goes on smooth as silk, no flooding and I only used one coat here and it’s as deep as you see in the bottle. But I’d imagine a second coat might bring an even deeper effect. It dries fairly quickly. In fact by the time I got to the last nail, it wasn’t even tacky.

Take a trip over to wHet and see what floats your boat!
