Deep jewel tone gel polishes from Sparkle & Co!

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE all the bright and airy shades of Spring and Summer, but after those long seasons (especially here in Texas) I find a special excitement over being able to wear some deep, vampy nail shades! Today’s post featuring more gel polishes by Sparkle & Co includes four jewel toned cremes you’re sure to want to include in your collection. All these bottles are full size, 15 ml bottles and swatches include Base Coat and No Wipe Top Coat gel polishes by Sparkle & Co. Let’s take a look!

Today I'm reviewing four more sassy deep jewel tone gel polishes from Sparkle & Co, from OceansofBeauty.com! From left, #017 (Dark Purple), #032 (Brown/Maroon), #19 (Raspberry), and #020 (Deepest Blue).

First up and two versions just for grins and giggles, #032!

#032/Brown/Maroon gel polish by Sparkle & Co at OceansofBeauty.com is an extremely popular shade with shoppers there! It's so perfect for Fall/Winter months and I love the deep raisin maroon shade. 2 Coats cured with base and top coats cured.

And the following three for today (more coming, don’t worry!) #017, #019 and #020.

And a cool royal Dark purple gel polish is #017 by Sparkle & Co at OceansofBeauty.com. 3 coats cured with base and top coats, also available at OceansofBeauty.com.

Here is 3 coats of #019/Raspberry! Now this is 3 coats, and tested on my natural nail doesn't provide a deeper shade for me. But I am loving it this way! You May notice on the web store that the shade on the acrylic swatch stick is a good deal deeper, and all I can say is on a plastic nail stick must afford a deeper shade and I don't know how many coats was applied there.

#020/Deepest Blue from the gel polish line by Sparkle & Co of OceansofBeauty.com. I love this Royal blue, and although the formula leans semi jelly-like, I still only needed two coats cured. This deep blue is perfect! 2 Coats!

Madam Glam Gel polish Basics!

Madam Glam has a plethora of gel polish shades, finishes and styles. But to make all of those especially fabulous, you need outstanding base, top and special effect treatments. Of course, they do have a great assortment of One Step Gel polishes and Matte Top Coat as well. For today, I want to share with you two essentials, Peel Off Base Coat (works with all polishes, regular and gel), and No Wipe Gel Top coat.

Madam Glam No Wipe Top Gel couldn't make application easier! Not to mention if you don't want to commit for 3-4 weeks of the same color, use the Peel Off Base Coat under your gel polish, or even regular polish including glitters...those ornery buggers LOL!!

The No Wipe Top Coat for gel polish is described as, “This could be such a life saver! Have you ever wanted not to deal with the sticky residue after doing your gel nails? Your wish is granted! Here is the No wipe Top Gel that will make your life so much easier.” It cures under LED light for 30 seconds, and UV lamp for 2 minutes.

Madam Glam Peel Off Base Coat is not a curing gel, it's for any polish and goes on clear, dries clear on its own.

Madam Glam Peel Off Base Coat is not a curing gel, it’s for any polish and goes on clear, dries clear on its own.

Madam Glam Peel Off Base coat is described as, “The peel off base coat will make your polish removing routine as smooth as every relaxing routine should be. Put it on before your polish and peel it off when you’re done with it. As simple as that! Forget about the hassle of soaking off your gel nails or removing that glittery nail polish you love. This is THE solution. Apply a layer and let it air dry before putting on any gel or nail color. Just peel it off when you want to remove the color. Yes, THAT easy!” It’s great under any kind of polish. In fact if doing gel nails, be sure to fully dry, then apply and cure gel polish as normal. The long wear of a gel manicure won’t last as long however. Just FYI. Here is an example of peeled off gel polish following application of the Peel Off Base Coat.

The Peel Off Base Coat is suitable for both gel and regular nail polishes. Here are Smart Red One Step Gel nail polish from my nails after one coat of the Peel Off Base. Read further for explanation!

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!

CND Vinylux Weekly system

This is my first experience using the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish System and I’m truly smitten! I’ll be sharing six glorious shades along with my report on the Weekly Top Coat and CND’s Solar Oil. Warning, lots of images!

The first shade is the vampy, and I do mean VAMPY creme called Bloodline. It is a blood red creme with a perfect formula. All six of these can be one coaters but I did two for this post. Bloodline is so aptly named and so intoxicating you may even be inclined to take s quick sniff of the bottle. Don’t worry, it really is polish! It’s a highly pigmented blood red creme. I used two coats and this did slightly stain my nails. But a couple extra swipes of an acetone based remover got the rest off my nails.

Bloodline will make your heart skip a beat!

Bloodline is so elegant and sexy!

Next is a gorgeous gilded mossy green. One stroke of Gilded Pleasure and I was in love. Gilded Pleasure is a stunning duo-chrome with a gilded olive base that flashes antique gold and pale green. Because it’s a metallic formula, it can tend to show some brush strokes but not that bad. Just use a light hand and it will look great! Two thin coats is all you need of this green golden beauty.

Gilded Pleasure is a duochrome that is one of the smoothest I've had the pleasure of trying.

Grape Gum, a perfect name and although it’s not scented, you can imagine the fragrance of this perfectly named purple lacquer. Grape gum is a luscious shimmery purple. The finish on this pretty purple after drying was sort of a satiny finish. Of course when you add a layer of the Weekly Top Coat, you’ll get that shine you’re looking for.

Grape Gum is a pretty shimmery purple, perfectly suite for any season.

Here is an even darker red shimmer, Dark Lava. All I an say is, WOW! Dark Lava is one of those elegant moody and metallic reds, without the streaks! I love deep wine shades with so much character. One coat may do but I used two.

Dark Lava is a rich deep red shimmer. Great for the upcoming holidays.

Pretty Poison is the epitome of how a sexy deep green is supposed to look. How is it possible for a deep metallic green to glow? I don’t know, but this one does. Pretty Poison appears is a sultry, blackened forest green that shimmers with tiny bronze, gold and green flecks. This dark beauty is amazing! Super easy to apply and I used two coats. No staining.

Pretty Poison is so beautiful, it can't be all that bad. It's amazing actually!

And last of the colors is Decadence. Now when I think of that word, why is it I think of dark chocolate dripping over berries? Well, the only thing missing here is the chocolate! Decadence is a classy red on the cool end of the spectrum. The jelly-like formula is easy to apply in 2-3 thin coats for full opacity but oh so shiny! It’s very luxe and rich looking.

Indulge in the finer things. Decadence fits right in!

So what is the perfect top coat to finish a CND Vinylux Weekly Polish system? Well, CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat of course!

CND weekly Top Coat means business! One coat over Gilded Pleasure Weekly Polish.

Soothing Autumn orange tones by Cult Cosmetics

Orange you glad it’s Autumn?! Ok, that was cheesy but sometimes I can’t help myself 😉 The coolest thing is this new shimmery topcoat, Troubadour, by Cult Cosmetics is stunning over drop dead gorgeous over every one of these polishes.

From pale to peachy, these shades are fall ready.

By the way, La Cita is pretty much a 2-coater as is Avalon. Pale Hollywood Hills is sheer so plan on three coats for full coverage. You can pick up these babies and many others at CultCosmetics.com.

Cult lacquers are premium, 5-FREE, Vegan, cruelty-free single coat polishes and makeup products. None of their polishes are animal tested and they are made in California, USA.

And here is a little inspiration for you! Try blinding up your mattes! I have so many ideas now. What have you come up with? I’d love to see your comments and grab some ideas from you.

The fun possibilities are endless with these shimmery mattes! Bling up the velvet with gems and even a Zoya Pixie Dust like Carter!

All in all I loved all if the fast drying formulas. They all were a breeze to apply as well. I can’t speak for wear as of yet. That will be in a later post. I highly recommend these beauties!

Please Note: MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear.

ZOYA IS THE HEALTHY COLOR OF FASHION! **BIG5FREE: Formula contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene or camphor. These sell for $9 (US) each. Zoya MATTEVELVET* colors are available exclusively on Zoya.com and Ulta Stores.
