Glitter Lambs Fashion Makeover collection swatches

Jamie from Glitter Lambs, maker of amazing indie glitter toppers, has done it again! I think she must just look around in her day-to-day life and envision every pretty thing as a potential glitter polish 🙂 Today I’ll be sharing my swatches from the upcoming collection, Fashion makeover. These will be released and ready for purchase on March 14th. Here is the lineup:

Let’s start off with a brilliant green glitter called Lime Green Eyeshadow.

Remember, these are set for release on March 14th! Jamie explains, “This collection will be the same formula that is in their “It’s Snowing Cotton Candy” glitter topper”. The iridescent glitters that we used in these polishes create a thicker gel like formula. These toppers ARE TOTALLY GORGEOUS!” I have to agree. I know I’m not supposed to have favorites (not out loud) LOL but I LOVE the Lime Green Eyeshadow. What’s your fave?! Remember, Jamie also sells cool nail charms to complete your Fashion Makeover.

CND® Summer 2015 Garden Muse Collection

I was sent the “Weekly Polishes” of the CND® Summer 2015 Garden Muse Collection for review from RPR and these gorgeous shades do not disappoint. The set of six (also available in 14-day wear Shellac) consist of three cremes, two shimmers, and a shimmery metallic glitter mix. Let’s take a look!

The cremes in this collection from L to R: Wisteria Haze, Crushed Rose and Reflecting Pool.

The rest of the collection from L to R: Beckoning Begonia, Lost Labyrinth and Butterfly Queen.

I’ll start with the three perfect cremes! Each of these formulas went on smooth and opaque, 1-2 buttery coats, depending on your technique. They dry fast and glossy and the brush is perfect.

Wisteria Haze:

Wisteria Haze (I used one coat) is a medium Wisteria/lilac creme. Gorgeous!

Crushed Rose is a cool rosey medium pink creme. I didn't want to take this one off!

Reflecting Pool is a cerulean blue, aqua, Caribbean blue creme. It's just perfect!

On to the shimmers/glitter!

Beckoning Begonia is a shimmery pale lavender. It's on the slightly thick side although the first coat went on streaky. I applied a second coat to smooth out the polish and it dried slightly slower than the fast drying cremes. This was the only one of the six that fought me with it's weird formula. But the outcome is gorgeous!

Lost Labyrinth is also a shimmer but not as thick as Beckoning Begonia so application was easier and quicker drying time. I did this in two coats. It's a cool aqua/teal shade, perfect for those mermaidy nail looks!

Butterfly Queen is a cool toned brilliant pink, almost hot, but very complex. Drying time was less than I expected with it's mix of shimmer and glitter. Just the right mix of pink glitter so it's not overly textured and overpowering. I used two coats.

Overall I really like this collection. The cremes are my favorite and I’m really impressed with the drying time. These Weekly polishes wear well (when I get the chance to leave them on more than a couple of days). Both versions, Weekly and Shellac are available for purchase now!

Fight Like A Lady Trio by Morgan Taylor for a worthy cause

October is a great time to go Pink! And since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, pink is surprisingly everywhere from pro football team socks and gloves to obviously, you guessed it, nails. I’m so happy to see major nail polish brands helping with the fight to eradicate breast cancer. Having a couple of relatives with the disease and their success in the fight, it’s encouraging to know there is so much support in research. So on to the fun stuff! Today I get to share a glorious set of polishes sent to me from Loxa Beauty, Morgan Taylor’s “Fight Like A Lady” Trio.

What a perfect trio of polishes in this set. P.S. I Love You, Fight Like A Lady and Lip Service.

P.S. I Love You in two coats, with the glitter topper of Fight Like A Lady on the accent nail. You’ll definitely need two coats but that’s it, and it’s glossy.

P.S. I Love You is amazing alone or with a glitter topper like Fight Like A Lady.

I love that the base in this glitter topper Fight Like A Lady has a slight pink tint to it. It’s not full coverage so it will also make a great gradient accent as well. Here it is over Lip Service.

Fight Like A Lady goes on nice and smooth over any creme. It looks amazing over Lip Service.

Lip Service is a glossy Barbie Pink. It’s the perfect shade to wear during Breast Cancer Awareness month! So go out and “save the tatas” and pick up a set of your own. Polish that is. 😉

Lip Service pretty much requires two coats but that's it. It dries quickly and glossy.
