With Fall in the air, we are seeing some of the first glimpses of color changes and that usually starts with gold! In this segment I’ll be sharing indie polish maker, Jamie, Glitter Lambs Fall 2015 lineup of golden glitters. Butterscotch Corn Maze, Golden Leaves and Hay Ride. Disclaimer, I love how bar glitter looks, I just fail at the technique! That being said, let’s take a look at these gold beauties, for sale now at Glitter Lambs online stores.

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. Today I’ve swatched two brand new creations straight from the colorful mind of GL’s creator, Jamie. Perfect timing for upcoming Valentine’s Day gifts for a loved one, or yourself!

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." It's a gorgeous glitter topper over any shade!

I had so much fun with this one. Who doesn’t like Unicorns? Here is Unicorns Love Sugar Cubes.

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! ;-)

This Glitter Lambs polish has been sent to me for review and all opinions are my own.

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!

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.

If you have questions contact Rebecca via her etsy store, Facebook or email.

Glitter Lambs Summer Jam Collection is yummy!

Glitter Lambs Summer Jam Collection is yummy!

Ahh, it’s a beautifully sunny summer morning. The birds are singing and your toaster just presented you with a perfectly tanned bagel. Bring on the butter and jam. Summer Jam that is! And here is a sunny bunch of glitter goodness. No, not for your bagels, for your nails! Get some coffee. There’s lots of photos to see!

Owner of Glitter Lambs and indie polish creator, Jamie, fills every one of these glitter toppers with magic. They are gorgeous and there’s no end to the possibilities you can create with base colors, or just go crazy and layer them up. It won’t take long because they are loaded. Let’s start with Orange Marmalade.

Orange Marmalade is the sunniest combo ever! I layered it over a brilliant orange here.

Watermelon just screams summertime. If you’ve ever been to a county fair, you’ve probably seen pickled watermelons. Believe it or not, they’re pretty tasty! Jamie captured it beautifully with her Pickled Watermelon glitter topper.

Pickled Watermelon is a stunning mix of red and the pale green shreds are soooo....melony! Lol

Jamie suggests this. Some settling of the larger glitters may happen over time. Just turn bottle upside down and shake to disperse the larger glitters back up to the top. Or turn bottle upside down and set it down on the table for awhile so the larger glitters will come up to the top before use. This will make it easier. *These are meant to be glitter toppers and not full coverage glitter nail polishes. Just add this glitter topper over another nail polish color to make it SPARKLE!

Glitter Lambs Tweety Bird

Tweety Bird, a bright and cheery topper!

Tweety Bird, a bright and cheery topper!

“I tot I taw a puddy tat!” Tweety Bird is an American icon! He’s bright and yellow and full of fun. Just like Glitter Lambs Tweety Bird flitter topper. The formula is as always with Glitter Lambs polishes, easy to apply and no fishing required.

Tweety Bird is sunny and bright. "I tot I taw a puddy tat!"

Tweety Bird is sunny and bright. “I did! I did see a puddy tat!”

Here is a little fun trivia about the little yellow bane of Sylvester’s existence. Tweety Bird, a Warner Bros. Animated character, appears in Merry Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons. He first appeared onscreen in 1942 in A Tale of Two Kitties. Tweety has found his iconic baby talk voice by a total of eight human actors, but mostly by the original Mel Blanc and Jeff Bergman, who is still the voice of Tweety today. The very first appearance he made he was a generic, naked pink baby bird! I’m so glad they changed his outfit!

Here are some macro shots of Tweety up close and personal, less the feathers!
