How about these beauties from Super Nails?!

I am thrilled to bring you some more beauties from KC at Super Nails! Today I will share with you another stunning birthstone glitter, January Garnet (my birthstone, yay!). As well as six very creative shades, with 5 glitters and one crelly/glitter. Those are Peacock, Unicorn’s Mane, Anti V-Day, French Kiss, Me-Ow! and Rainbow Clouds. So here we go, starting with my birthstone!

I'm loving KC's timing on this since it's my birthday tomorrow and Garnet is my birthstone. Here is one coat over SpaRitual's Spellbound.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Peacock!

Oh my goodness, I love Peacock! It's the perfect combo of glitters for a peacock mani, or even a mermaid inspired theme.

Single this Valentine’s Day? No worries, Anti V-day has you covered.

Anti V-day is a fun glitter whether you use it over a dark shade or light. I used Genevieve a dark grey creme by Zoya. Can you spot my anti v-day references? LOL

French Kiss, c’est magnifique!

Ooh lala! French Kiss is a fun pinked base glitter with little hearts. Sheer enough to go nicely over a french mani. I used Romper room by Essie.

Rainbow Clouds is soft and delicate. Perfect for spring!

Rainbow Clouds is such a delicate and soft crelly. Great formula!

Since these two seemed to both fall into that skygazind, day dreamy category, I had to group these two cuties together.  Rainbow Clouds is described as: "White crelly polish base with pastel rainbow shreds, including pink, purple, blue, green and yellow." Unicorn's Mane is described as: "Clear polish base with iridescent and bright rainbow short bars, including red, pink, yellow, green, and blue."

So, here’s the thing. I’ve feared bar glitters in the past. But this one, oh my goodness. How fun is this? So easy to apply and so festive!

I have not used a lot of bar glitters in the past, but this one had me at "hello, I'm a Unicorn, want a ride?" LOL I wanted you to see how great this colorful glitter topper is over dark or light undies, gradient style or total topper.

I saved one of the best for last. My little model, Hermione, was made for this polish theme with it’s cute little leopard spot glitters!

Me-Ow! is a perfect glitter for a gradient mani. I tried my hand at a bit of dry brushing for a furry effect.

Well, it had to be done. How could I NOT use my Hermione for a model here? She obliged quite nicely. Me-ow! is described as: "Clear polish base with holographic silver leopard spot, black leopard spot and metallic gold leopard spot glitters in a sea of metallic and holo gold and silver hex and square glitters in all different sizes."

I loved doing these amazing polishes from Super Nails. So much fun and such creative glitters. Head on over to Super Nails store and grab a few minis, request customs or get full bottles! Have fun 🙂

Super Nails Birthstone Collection Pt. 2!

They just keep impressing me! The Birthstone collection by creator/owner of Super Nails has been a delight to swatch for you. As I pulled out the other three KC sent me my brain came up with so many ideas on how to present them to you. Here are August Peridot, September Sapphire and October Opal. Enjoy!

August Peridot is so sparkly and blingy. Sort of a greenish gold!

KC describes August Peridot as “Clear polish base with tiny olivine hexes, green dots, and chartreuse transparent hexes.”

A cool twist on gold!

I used Zoya Logan and a gold underneath. It turned out rather elegant!

One of my faves of the bunch!

Next we have a glorious blue glitter topper in September Sapphire. I will remind you that all the formulas are typical of glitter toppers, a bit on the thick side but these are very smooth and no stringiness. They are packed and go on very nicely. Using a clear topcoat is recommended.

September Sapphire is stunning!

See how packed this is?!

KC describes September Sapphire as “Shimmering blue-gold duochrome micro flake polish with blue hex, iridescent hex, and holographic blue glitters.”

And last I give you October Opal. Well, I’m not giving it away today but you can get it in two sizes at the Super Nails store, link below. She carries these in minis and full .50 sizes. I love this mani! I thought it would be fitting to do a watercolor mani with Opal colors.

Love Opal!

Even glorious in the bottle!

Beautiful over any color too!

You gotta get this one! Even if you're not an October baby.

You may find a few larger flakies in this so you’ll have to tame with a good clear topcoat. But I topcoat all my glitter manis anyway. I like Gelous for heavier glitters.

Well that’s it for this series. I highly recommend KC’s Birthstone Collection. Have you picked up yours yet?

Gilded Raspberry Smoothie, my delicious custom lacquer from Super Nails!

My first custom polish from Super Nails is exactly what I envisioned. Raspberries, one of my favorite fruits! And I’m always drawn to pinks and gold together. It’s just a stunning combination so when KC told me I could come up with a custom polish, I knew right then what I wanted. She really delivered!

I got to name her. So Gilded Raspberry Smoothie it is! I wish my own smoothie I made for the photo looked more like it.

Obviously from the photo as you can see my smoothie didn’t have the glorious pink shade as my polish. Maybe if I’d used raspberry sherbet. 😉 This polish had just the right amount of gold flakies I asked for. The results were spot on.

Amazingly opaque.

As you can see, the gold was  just enough to let the beautiful raspberry cream sing. Only one coat! I used Gelous Top Coat to smooth out the finish, although this creation is glossy on it's own.

As it goes with flakey loaded lacquers…say THAT ten times fast, I dare you! Lol there will always be the tiniest bit of bumpiness, so I added Gelous as a top coat. I’m going to hate to take this stunning polish off today but I’ve got more swatching to do. Super opaque in one coat, the formula is slightly thick but easy to apply. Flaky dispersion is perfect! This gilded beauty is a treasure! Here’s a closeup.

I’m not sure how it works with KC’s customs whether she replicates them in mass, or by request. But she has the formula now and if you’d like a bottle of your own, ask her! KC’s indie polish business based in Michigan, is fairly new, 2013, but she knows what she’s doing. She majored in Business and Entrepreneurship in college. Her polish blends are made up fresh to order and she does customs on request. Her polishes are human and environmentally friendly. As she states on her stores web site, “All Super Nails polishes are 5-FREE, vegan, and free of formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde-resin, camphor, and carmine. So… beautiful nail polish, no cancer, or abused animals = win for everyone!” That’s what we like to hear.

Remember, I soon will be posting the other three Birthstone polishes she sent me, and a glitter topper she knew would be close to my heart and it’s AMAZING! Here is where you can shop for your Super Nail products.

Super Nails Birthstone Collection Pt. 1

This is my first experience swatching for Super Nails. I’m no stranger to glitter toppers. I’ve reviewed plenty. Although I have swatched my share of minis, I truthfully admit I hate trying to hold these lil stinkers with one hand and holding my big ole DSLR camera in the other. It’s tough! No, it’s sometimes painful. But owner KC said most of her sales are her minis and that’s what she likes to advertise. Far be it from me to change her business model. I am telling you, whether you pick up full size or minis, you will love the quality of her polishes.

Prepare yourself and grab some coffee or tea…tons of photos coming right up. I will be reviewing 6 birthstone polishes from,the collection. Three in this post and three in the next. In between I’ll delight you with a gorgeous custom KC created for me for which I’m over the moon about! First up is April Diamond.

April Diamond is spelled BLING!

Great even if you weren't born in April!

KC describes April Diamond as “Clear polish base with dense silver metallic glitters of all sizes. Would be a great glitter topper for use in a glitter gradient manicure, or simply on top of any color.”

Diamonds really are a girl's best friend!

This glitter topper is loaded, seriously loaded! And it goes on smooth, never clumpy or stringy.

Next is June Pearl. So soft and delicate. This will be a great topper for some Christmas mani because it reminds me of snow!

Again, the formula was quite pleasing. Not quite as densely packed as Diamond, but I found it perfect for dispersion because I’m planning a great lil winter scene when it turns cold again!

As you can see in this macro shot, the delicate matte pearl glitters are so soft looking. A great glitter if you want to wear it to the office without blinding your boss!

And the last of the three for today’s post, July Ruby! Remember to come back in a couple of days for the follow up with the other three I’m reviewing: August Peridot, September Sapphire and October Opal.

July Ruby is a true Ruby red. A perfect red!

Makes me wish I was born in July, but I was born in January (Garnet). Close and I can’t wait to see what my birthstone polish will look like!

There were so many ways I could have swatched this beauty for you. Even with the mini size bottle, the size of the glitters were not difficult to apply. I decided on this holo filled blue, sort of patriotic, called Dream, by Zoya for my base coat.

This will be great to use for your holiday nail art as well!

KC describes July Ruby as “Clear polish base with holographic and metallic red glitters, and tiny hexes.”

That’s it for today. I should have the other toppers swatched in a couple of days.

I’ve found that using little squares of felt does an amazing job and way better than cotton balls. I had no problem removing any of these glitters at all. But, back to Super Nails!

Here is the backstory KC sent me about why she chose to produce birthstone polishes! “Birthstone polishes! I used to manage a bead and jewelry shop, so birthstones were a very common material for me to work with. I wanted to put both of my hobbies (of making jewelry and making nail polish) together, by creating gemstone inspired nail polishes. I began with the basic and most popular gemstones, because everyone has a birthday!”

Makes sense to me. 🙂 One would think you’d see more birthstone polishes out there dedicated to the gem of your month. This is a great idea and would make great birthday gifts for those polish lovin’ gals in your life.
