More heavenly polishes from Madam Glam: Look At The Stars and Galaxy

These next two polishes from Madam Glad, Look at the Stars and Galaxy may be polar opposites on the texture scale, but they are both heavenly to behold. Look at the Stars is a very pigmented indigo jelly full of glossy shine. And Galaxy in my book should be in every black polish collection. It dries to a lightly textured satiny finish and with a coat of clear topcoat or my preference, Gelous, this polish is truly breathtaking.

Almost as if they were made for each other, Look at the Stars is such a vibrant indigo blue jelly. Galaxy is a black slightly textured polish, dries semi satiny and blinks at you like the midnight sky.

If you want a midnight sky on your nails, this stunning glitter will do the trick!

Galaxy dries to a slight texture, slightly satin and two thin coats gets the job done beautifully. I recommend a coat of Gelous or glossy topcoat to finish out a mani that is "out of this world"! I recommend using a little square of felt for removal of remaining glitter.

Galaxy is described as, "A black kissed with glitters..."Black is the color! Especially when it comes with multicolor glitters that will make you the ultimate trendsetter!"

I am a sucker for a good jelly finish. Mainstream polish makers, take notes from Madam Glam because this stuff is primo…perfecto…impeccable! Love love love it!

What can I say but this is simply one of the most PERFECT jellies I've ever used. No staining, 3 THIN coats to perfection and glossy and smooth. LOVE this!

Perfect blue for a year that’s new, Morgan Taylor blings in 2015!

These aren’t your mama’s blues! They are vampy, sultry and ready to set off the fireworks on New Year’s Eve. So popular in fact is the trio that it’s currently sold out but you can still find two of these beauties on Loxa Beauty individually…New Year, New Blue and Snow Place Like Home. These polishes were made for bringing the new year.

Accented with Snow Place Like Home over white with sapphire gems (from Cinapro) on the ring finger, New Year, New Blue is a gorgeous shimmery indigo jelly/creme. I'm not sure if that is how you describe it, but it applies like a dream!

All the formulas were great. The New Year, New Blue is highly pigmented, you could get by with one coat, I usually do two. I applied Snow Place Like Home on my accent nail over white. But you’re free to experiment. This sugary topcoat is gorgeous over just about anything.

You'll love this set for bringing in the New Year! Bringing in the Season is easy with these chilly blues and snowy glitter. From left, Midnight Rendezvous, Snow Place Like Home and New Year, New Blue!

OPI Infinite Shine polishes, pt. 2

This is the second set in this 3-part series on OPI’s new Gel Effects Lacquer System, Infinite Shine which includes the Primer and the Gloss topcoat. I’m thrilled with how pigmented these polishes are. Today I’ll be sharing two more from the six on my shelf! To Infinity & Blue-yond and Indignantly Indigo.

This pastel blue, To Infinity & Blue-yond will look great this summer when my tan returns! And then there's this wintery indigo perfect for this winter season, Indignantly Indigo.

As I mentioned, To Infinity & Blue-yond requires two coats because the first one will streak, even though it's highly pigmented. The outcome is worth it!

Indignantly Indigo is that kind of blue that catches your eye and makes you go, "whaaa?! That is gorgeous! I want that!"

Remember, to get the best out of these gel like lacquers, you will want to apply the Primer and the Gloss topcoat, and you’ll get tons of wear out of all 30 available shades. Come back in the next day or so for the last two shades in this series!

My NOTD with indigo tips

NOTD ✨ I am loving this combo using some new shades from Cult Cosmetics 😊 That gorgeous lavender creme is The Roxy, my blue tips are from a fantastic indigo shimmer called House of Blues. Then finished with the holographic topcoat on the tips called Hollywood Bowl!

This is so easy, a cave girl could do it!

Here are the shades I used. Great formulas all.

The Roxy, Hollywood Bowl and House of Blues.

Zoya Remy is remarkable

From the first glance of the Zoya Ignite Collection for Fall 2014 I knew at least most of the shades would end up finding a home on my shelf. So far I have four from the Ignite collection and as I swatch each one you’ll see my review here. I’ll start out with beautiful Remy!

Note: For full disclosure here, I am not (yet) on Zoya’s blogger/reviewer program and I have bought all my collection with my own money. So far 93 bottles! And Zoya if any of your Pixies find themselves perusing this blog, my nails are here for your swatching pleasure! 😉 Now on with the review.

When I first saw her, Remy reminded me so much of Charla, in the bottle, that I nearly overlooked her. That would have been a huge mistake and I need to remind myself that Zoya will not dupe their shades and go to great lengths to prove it. Remy is in a deeper, sultrier base for one thing. I wore her for nearly five days with no tip wear and get this, no staining! Amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Charla to the moon and back, but she also stains the crap out of my nails if I don’t wear a good base coat. Charla is gorgeous, and definitely different that Remy so if you’re on the fence about Remy, take a breath, grab your wallet and get it! Here she is in all her glory.

Remy reminds me of a darker, more sultry version of Charla.

Remy is described by Zoya as, “a brilliant indigo with copper and gold liquid metallic.” A warm toned, very opaque and perfect formula, I only needed one coat. Here she is in the sun!

The sunshine loves her!

Remy by Zoya is remarkable!

I can’t wait to share the others in the Ignite collection as I get them. Zoya never fails to satisfy and innovate. I’m also looking forward to trying the Entice collection…so fall appropriate without looking tired and washed out. I tend to have a hard time letting go of summer and these are more like Indian Summer shades in my view. Perfect. Gorgeous!

You can find Zoya’s vegan 5-free lacquers at http://www.zoya.com, as well as stores like Ulta and many salons.
