Conclusion. I love citrus, and especially love citrusy polishes like this. I would recommend using a good base coat in case of pigment bleed. The yellow is especially pigmented.

SquareHue The Adventure Collection Pub Crawl Dublin collection!

The month of March brings SquareHue The Adventure Collection Pub Crawl Dublin collection! An eye-popping set of juicy shades featuring two different finishes. I’m loving these shades and a fun addition and sort of rare is the white texture.

Timid yet brilliant blue high gloss creme is St. John. A quick drying glass finish. The creamy orange is super glossy as well, it's called Temple Bar. And the one shade begs to differ from the others, a shy creme white, but not super pure white...it's a sparkly textured finish.

You won’t have the blues when you’re wearing blue hues like this! St. John is gorgeous!

St. John is a caribbean blue, maybe reminiscent of Curacao? A creme blue, 2 coats here.

Juicy orange creme, Temple Bar looks good enough to eat.

Temple Bar reminds me of a glass of OJ with creme mixed in. Really glossy, 2 coats here.

A sugary textured white, Bridge Inn, not too white but very complimentary to every skin tone.

Bridge Inn is a slightly off white textured polish that looks like it contains a good portion of sugar! 2 coats, on the thick side, but totally doable.

Conclusion: No blarney here, these polishes are perfect for March! The Temple Bar and St. John shades are glossy and quick drying, only required 2 coats. Bridge Inn took a bit more patience in application, but that is how textures are. The outcome is worth the effort.

Zoya Paradise Sun – Pt. 1 of 2 Summer 2015 Collections

I literally just got home from a week’s vacation at the beach and had the best nail mail waiting for me! In fact, if we had left for Florida just a couple days later I’d have had these to take with me to swatch at the beach. How fitting that would have been! But either way, my anticipation to test Zoya’s sun-loving shades did not disappoint. Today I’ll be sharing the first half of 12 new summertime shades, Paradise Sun.

Paradise Sun from top and clockwise: Mae, Selene, Aphrodite, Oceane, Isa and Genisis. It's a coincidence that I should get back from my beach vacation and have these waiting for me to swatch! I'd have love to have them with me, but it would be hard to choose which color to wear every day.

I’ll start with the paleface of the bunch, Genesis. She’s a delicate and beautiful white with that diamond dust finish that makes it “not your mother’s white polish”! This was the only formula that was slightly difficult in that it was thick and a bit gloopy. But the second coat corrected it’s sins. 😉

Genesis is described as, "a crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish - designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust!" This formula from the Paradise Sun collection is thicker than the rest. Therefore it was my problem child in the bunch but the outcome is worth the extra effort. This took two coats to level out and it dried twice as slow as the rest. Still, who doesn't like a glitzy white in the summer?

Still, who doesn’t like a glitzy white in the summer?

Next up is Mae. She really reminds me of petals of a Bougainvillea vine. Simply divine and tropical!

Mae is described as, "a warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers." As with the other colors of this collection, Isa went on smooth as silk and is a 1-2 coater!

Next up is Selene. She didn’t stain in case you’re wondering but I only wore her long enough to swatch. If you’re worried, just wear a good base coat like Zoya Anchor.

Selene is described as, "a true teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water." Very mermaidy don't you think? Love this formula. I really wish Genesis had the same formula as the colors in Paradise Sun.

Here’s that sexy vixen, Aphrodite!

Aphrodite is described as, "a vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. Think of fresh and juicy tropical fruit!" Great formula, smooth as butter to apply and nearly a 1-coater.

Oceane is a must-have summer color. Like Selene, it’s a mermaidy, oceany shade that makes you want to run out to the ocean and jump right in.

Oceane is described as, "a true turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters!" Perfect in every way! This is one coat and you might need two, but I was quite pleased with one. Oh this color and finish. I just got back from the beach then I put this on and I'm ready to return!

Isa is a juicy metallic purple leaning blue. Deep and mysterious.

Isa is described as, "a deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers!" Amazing formula and like butta to apply! One coat here but you might need two depending on your technique and nails.

Bottom line: I loved all the formulas of the colors, but white Genesis left me a bit frustrated by comparison. I think this is a common issue with white like this with pearl finishes. So I’ll give it a pass. Because after you get it on and dry, the looks is so fresh and delicate, you’ll end up loving it. I literally had NO cleanup with any of the 6 shades because the combination of the formulas and superb brush made application effortless (no cleanup needed on Genesis but overall application was a bit of a pain for me personally). Colors? Amazing! Finishes are nothing new but still it’s a great ensemble of summery shades to fire up your fingers and toes.

PARADISE SUN (metallics)
Fully saturated with a gorgeous micronized metallic sheen, these shimmering beauties are much like sunshine sparkling on water. Meant to be used as an independent color, these shades feature a full-coverage, densely pigmented formula.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting my review on the Island Fun collection. You’re gonna melt when you see these!

Summery new shades from Madam Glam!

Today I want to share with you a few of the new shades (available now) from Madam Glam. I’ll start with four polishes today but I’ve got a ton more to share with you from this fabulous indie brand! Let’s get started!

Here they are:

Today I'm sharing the first set of so many new delightful shades that have joined the Madam Glam fam! Cremes and a jelly, From left, are: Lucky Bamboo, Cashmere, Summer Nights and Holy Yellow.

First up is a creme that will surely get attention this summer! First up is Lucky Bamboo. So fresh 🙂

Oh how I DO love this one! My camera couldn't handle the brightness but I think I pretty much captured it's bleached out neonness (yes, I went there) of this pale green. I have not acquired a tan yet (too much rain here this spring) but these kinds of shades "luckily" will make you think you have one! Two easy coats to glossy perfection.

Next is a refreshing orange called Summer Nights.

Ahh, we all love Summer Nights and I'm excited to see this lovely tangerine creme with my favorite time of year. 2 coats.

You know it has to be summertime around the corner when the yellows show up. Here is Holy Yellow.

Ahh, Holy Yellow! You toyed with my camera but this jelly will make your yellow lovin' friends jellie! It takes 2 to 3 coats for full opacity as is the way with most jellies but dries nice and glossy. It reminds me of those lemon drop candies! Ooh, I just got an idea! Add a bit of sugary top coat for a real Lemon Drop mani! Hmmm...

And last for today is a delicate pale grey, Cashmere.

Cashmere glides on to a perfect and glossy finish in 2 coats. I love this kind of pale dove grey. I think it would make a perfect office appropriate shade!

Introducing the Chloe & Bella 2015 Spring collection

Mark your calendars for March 21st! This oh-so-spring collection from indie brand Chloe & Bella, the 2015 Spring Collection, will go on sale and you don’t want to miss any of the six mix ‘n match set. Here they are!

The formulas of the creams were consistent and easy to work with. No flooding and not overly thick with a nicely splaying brush. Although it’s hard to capture the iridescent flashes within each of the creams, believe me, they are there in full sun and well lit rooms. The glitter toppers are great formulas as well, each in clear bases. No fishing here as these formulas have plenty of multi-sized glitters without being chunky on the nail. I found that they applied so smoothly you really don’t need a glitter filling top coat for any of them.

Let’s start off with the Tangerines! Tangerine Cream

Tangerine Cream is a smooth 2-coater with flashes of purple iridescent shimmer. Hard to capture in the photo but believe me, it's breathtaking!

Tangerine Twinkle, her outspoken sister!

Tangerine Twinkle is perfectly paired up to it's sister, Tangerine Cream, but I'm tempted to think outside the box and pair her over Strawberry Cream! Ohh, ahh!

And finally, the Aubergines! Now, I had to look up this word because frankly, I didn’t know what it meant! 😉 Aubergine is actually another word for eggplant! Now, although this could be a pastel version of that deep purple squash, you’ll see the true eggplant shade in it’s sister’s glitter. Here is Aubergine Cream.

Aubergine Cream is a great 2-coat polish with a bit of iridescent flash. I accented her with a light layer of Aubergine Twinkle.
