Cotton Candy King top coat by Glitter Lambs is royally gorgeous!

It’s been awhile since I posted on the beautiful Glitter Lambs Polish top coat glitters. A new one is here and “Cotton Candy King” is gorgeous! I painted it over a new Zoya creme, Gina, from the Naturel 3 collection. I love pink and brown together!

Cotton Candy King is described as, "Glitter Lambs "Cotton Candy King" Nail Polish is a gold holographic and matte pink glitter topper lightly sprinkled with a few pastel matte colored hex glitters in yellow and blue...If you don't know who the Cotton Candy King is then you can go read about who he is at this link: https://www.theicedsugarcookie.com/pages/stincel-and-ringlet." Here it is over Gina by Zoya.

Deborah Lippmann Life’s a Beach duo makes a splash!

Right up my alley, or maybe I should say beach path. I love the beach, the sand, the glorious shades of water and the wild life on top and below. Today I get to share with you a perfect pair of polishes from Deborah Lippmann, Life’s a Beach. And that packaging! Can you just?! Call me cray, but I’m keeping these cuties inside the package when I’m not painting with them. Brilliant DL!

Brave the waves with The Tide Is High, an aquatic blue crème and Break 4 Love, a bubblegum pink crème. I lean more toward Break 4 Love as a coral creme. $17/set. 2 bottles at 8mL each

I found both polishes apply great, on the thick side due to their high pigmentation. Both cremes are glossy as heck. For this mani I chose to do a “coral in the water” look. 😉

Break 4 Love is a soft coral pink creme (2-coater) very pigmented and glossy. The Tide is High is an aquatic blue creme. I was immediately inspired to beach up my look with some coral art over this sea-worthy blue. What a perfectly sundrenched pair!

I also received for review three nail treatments. I love that Hard Rock is ready to rock as a base and top coat. And it’s nail strengthening. Something we all need when spending so much time in the sun and water.

• Hard Rock base and top coat nail strengthening nail treatment. A rock solid choice to strengthen and protect, this protein-rich treatment encourages healthy nail growth. It's especially beneficial for weak nails or post gel and artificial nail removal. Apply a thin layer over bare nails, or use as a base or top coat. For best results of nail strengthening, apply a thin layer the next day and every day until you change your nail polish. .5 Fl. Oz. 15 mL  • Addicted to Speed top coat super quick-drying. You’re out the door—in a flash. This high-shine top coat dries fast so you can go about your business without a smear, smudge or scratch. Apply a thin layer over nail color. .5 Fl. Oz. 15 mL • Turn Back Time anti-aging base coat. Just like skin, our nails age. This innovative treatment puts the process in reverse. Light diffusing micronized diamond core powder reduces the appearance of yellowing and staining to restore a youthful luster. Use as a base coat before color, or wear alone for a brilliant bare finish. .5 Fl. Oz. 15 mL All three are $20ea.

Addicted to Speed Quick Drying Top Coat is amazing! I mean rock hard in two minutes.

Turn Back Time, a super base coat and I’ll report back later if I see anti-aging results. I’m sure it is with all those healthy ingredients!

Conclusion: All products are amazing as expected. Love the Life’s a Beach shades and Addicted to Speed is FAST!

Happy Days ahead with Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Color

I was so excited to be able to test the new Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Colors, in the Happy Days Collection for summer 2016. The New Healthy Alternative to Gel Polish. There are four shades for your reminiscing pleasure. I want to start with a disclaimer, not a bad one. But I didn’t get the Gel Lab Pro Base and Top coats with this set. I’ll explain shortly. I think I would have had different results, but for the sake of these gorgeous colors, let’s get to it!

For best results use Gel Lab Pro base and top coat. Bottles are full size, .5 Fl. Oz. 15 mL with new contour brush, 45% more bristles for a streak-free finish. Rounded tip follows nail shape for precise application.

I want to start off saying the new brushes are phenomenal. I’d like to see DL polishes all feature these dense, contoured brushes in fact! They make application a breeze. Ok, on with the show.

Combining the technology of Gel Lab Pro with nail color, this dual-patented formula with 10 active ingredients helps deliver Health, Wear & Shine. From top and clockwise: Happy Days, Splish Splash, Beauty School Dropout and My Boyfriend's Back.

Let’s start with Beauty School Dropout. Such a pleasing pink. You’ll be blowing bubbles in no time with this quick drying highly pigmented formula. All four of these by the way are so pigmented they almost seem chalky in application. Which again, is why I would recommend using the base and top coat.

Beauty School Dropout is a bubblegum pink creme. It's glossy and very opaque. I used 2 coats but with the Gel Lab Pro base coat you might get away with 1 coat.

Splish Splash is a green leaning aqua. One of my fave summer colors.

Splish Splash was my favorite of this Happy Days Collection. I love aqua green cremes. 2 coats here.

Everyone loves a happy coral! Happy Days.

Happy Days is a coral creme, a pinky coral that appears to have a tiny bit of shimmer, but that doesn't show on the nail. 2-3 coats with the GLP base coat.

Finally, here is My Boyfriend’s Back. Not literally, that’s the name of the shade. LOL I’m married. 😉

My Boyfriend's Back is a denim, deep cerulean blue creme. 2 coats and very shiny on it's own as are all of these.

Conclusion: I love the colors and the brush. I like how pigmented these are. I feel the application would be a bit less streaky with the Gel Lab Pro base coat and the length of wear would be longer with the GLP top coat. Much like the OPI Infinite Shine system, to truly reap the full benefits of the GLP system, I highly recommend you purchase the base and top as well. So excited to see Deborah Lippmann introducing this safe alternative to gel colour! This brush is perfection. Virtually no cleanup. Note: I didn’t receive the Gel Lab Pro Base and Top Coats which I’m assuming are pretty essential for this product to make a GLP mani last. Without it I found no difference in wear compared to the other polishes without the GLP ingredients. I’ll try to see if they can send the base and top to see how application and extended wear changes and update this post!

What is your vegan/cruelty free policy?
ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.

Are your nail polishes 3-Free?
Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.

What does 3-Free mean?
3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren’t illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.”

SquareHue Adventure Collection takes us to Skydive Interlaken!

Diving right into the April polish subscription box from SquareHue, the moment I opened it I was out of breath! The April Adventure Collection brings us Skydive Interlaken. Three finishes, three knockout shades. Let’s suit up and take a look!

Eye popping shades for April! From Left, Monch...an eye-searing matte yellow. Eiger...a pink duochrome gloss (I'd consider it more of a pink with flashes of blue). And a glitter within a purple crelly, Jungfrau.

Monch is so brilliant, not even the sun can compete with this shade. Wear it matte or shine it up even more with a topcoat. I don’t know why but yellow this shade screams for black! So I had fun with some dots and dry marble.

Monch in 2 coats. I read that some folks had some streaking and stringy formula issues. I had NO issues at all. Dried fast and very matte and I didn't even need a 3rd coat.

Eiger is a super glossy pink with flashes of blue shimmer. I don’t seem to get a duochrome effect, but it’s sure gorgeous!

It took 3 thin coats and was easy to apply. I love pinks like this with that hint of shimmer.

Last but no way least, a super surprise this month is a pale purple crelly/glitter, Jungfrau. Hey, did you know that Jungfrau is a group of mountain peaks in Switzerland? Me neither. I really must get out more! lol

Jungfrau in 3 easy coats gives you great depth and dimension.

Conclusion. I read a couple mini reviews and a couple of reviewers had a couple of problems with Jungfrau and Monch. I had 0 problems, 0 defects! the Eiger took a bit longer to dry but the glossiness is worth it. Jungfrau is exactly how I like my crelly/glitters. And Monch, well. She’s a standout as far as yellow polishes are concerned. I’m super pleased!

Zoya Petals collection…A fresh bouquet of swatches!

New Zoya Petals collection is just my cup of tea. Delicate floral shades with hints of dew that shine like the morning sun. I received my swatch box while on vacation in Florida. In fact just a couple days after we left home. So you can imagine how anxious I was to open that box! But then again, being at our vacation home in Florida is pretty sweet too! Let’s take a look at these long-awaited beauties.

Zoya Petals is a delicate collection for spring 2016. Some of these seemed more pale in this photo than what you see in my swatches (those are more accurate). From top center and clockwise: Laurel, Leia, Tulip, Azalea, Aster, Zahara.

Let’s start with Laurel. So stunning and delicate at the same time.

Another favorite, Laurel in three coats.   Laurel - ZP840: Warm pastel pink with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic a petal 
soft finish.

Leia is one of those shade shifting polishes that shine on their own (with multiple coats) or create cool illusions over other shades.

Here is Leia, a sheer beauty, 3 coats alone and one coat over Laurel. Leia - ZP835: Sheer opalescent white with flecks of fuchsia, green and gold.

Tulip, one of my favorite flowers. What a perfect name for this one!

Tulip in three coats. So delicate and surprising! Tulip - ZP839: Pure pastel salmon cream with the slightest hint of sheen to mimic 
a petal soft finish.

So hard to pick a favorite, but this one, Azalea, ranks high in my book.

Azalea is a MUST HAVE pink! Here she is in two coats. Azalea - ZP837: Classic spring pink with a captivating white and fuchsia flash.

Aster is a breathtaking periwinkle sparkler!

Aster in 2 coats. What a gorgeous lilac leaning periwinkle. Aster - ZP836: Fresh periwinkle with flecks of fuchsia to create a dewy finish, 
mimicking the look of spring flowers in the morning.

Zahara is now one of my favorite orange tones. And I have several.

Zahara here in three coats. Her sheer coral beauty is worth the extra coats. Zahara - ZP838: Brilliant shimmering coral made modern with an opalescent effect.

Conclusion: I love the shades and finishes in all six of this collection. Formulas were perfectly smooth, easy to apply and although half of them required three coats to full opacity for me, subsequent layers were no problem to apply. I would have liked to see at least one less orange/coral tone in the set, even though they were all gorgeous. I’d have liked to see a green, maybe a pale green with glass fleck to set off and cleanse the pallete. But, maybe some pretty greens are on our horizon!

ZOYA IS THE HEALTHY COLOR OF FASHION! (US) 
Available in top salons, spas and on zoya.com. These retails for $10ea or $60 for the whole set.
