China Glaze Road Trip 2015 Collection - Swatches and Review


Let's take a road trip baby!!! 

Hey beauties. Today I'm sharing the road trip collection with you.  The set consists of 12 cremes with 4 of them laced with hidden shimmer. Check out the video for live swatches!



Here are quick swatches of each color. I grouped them together to compare and contrast differences and similarties. I started with the peaches and brights. From left to right: Wanderlust, Pack Lightly, More to Explore, and Pinking Out the Window,

Wanderlust - 3 coater lilac with hidden pink shimmer. Surprise favorte!
Pack Lightly - Light peach creme with hidden gold shimmer. Very cute and classic 3 coater.
More to Explore - Gorgeous peach 2 coater. I love this one!
Pinking out the Window - dusty but bright pink creme. Another suprise favortie!


The next 4 in the collection were my least favorites because I have polishes similar to them. From left to right: Sun's Up Top Down, Trip of a Lime Time, Pop the Trunk and I Brake for Colour.

Sun's Up Top Down - sunshine yellow creme with pink shimmer. Another 3 coater.
Trip of a Lime Time - baby food pea green creme. Two coater but too familiar.
Pop the Trunk - bright orange creme 2 coater.
I Brake for Colour - tomato red/coral 2 coater. This color is so similar to Pop the Trunk I almost mixed them up. It's really difficult to tell the difference.


Next are my absolute favorites from the collection!!! I'm in love with these blues! From left to right: My Way or the Highway, License & Registration PLS, Boho Blues and Dashboard Dreamer. 

My Way or the Highway - dusty yet bright teal creme 2 coater.
License & Registration PLS - vibrant medium blue creme, 2 coats.
Boho Blues - periwinkle blue 2 coat stunner.
Dashboard Dreamer - baby blue with hidden pink shimmer 3 coater.



This is a gorgeous collection for the Spring.I'm in love with the blues and peaches in the collection. The red, orange, yellow and green were my least favorites because they are too familiar.  The collection is all creme so there are probably several dupes out there but Boho Blues is definitely worth considering.  Overall this set Screams Spring!



The polishes are available online now. I purchased this set from Transdesign.com. I haven't seen them in retail stores but I'm sure they'll arrive soon.

Christmas Manicure - Waterless Water Marble


Christmas is almost here! My where has the year gone? I really planned on creating several Christmas manicures but I've been so busy lately. And my schedule is always thrown off whenever I go on vacation.  Nevertheless, I was able to create this nail of the day using a simple  waterless marble technique.

The colors I chose are: Wet N' Wild White, Orly Green Apple and Nicole by OPI Berry Sweet. I added a Christmas sticker on my thumbs (Viva LA Nails) for a little flare. 



I really like how this turned out. Easy, fast and cute. You can't beat that combination!


I hope you all are having a great week!!! Thanks for stopping by :)

Sally Hansen Halloween Insta-Dri Polishes 2014 - Swatches and Review


Hi beauties!  Today I have swatches of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Halloween collection to share with you.  There are 4 polishes from the set but I have 3 to share with you today



Scaredly Matte
I'm so in love with this matte from the collection. It's a black matte with a slight slick finish, so it reminds me of leather. This is a photo after it dried for about 30 minutes with no base coat. It did pretty well covering my ridges but they are still somewhat visible. I wore 2 coats here. 


Pumpkin Queen
A bright happy orange, perfect for Halloween. My picture mutes its a little, it's more of a bright tangerine cream (think Reeses Pieces orange). It was pretty opaque with 2 coats but I wanted to make sure there were no streaks so I applied a third coat. 


OMGhost
Okay I have to admit that I partially wanted this one because of the name.  OMG is a marshmallowy white cream. I used 2 coats to make it opaque.

I really like the fun colors for Halloween or anytime of the year. I'll definitely wear the black and white year round. I'm not sure if they are good for stamping because I haven't tried them out yet but most polishes from the Insta-Dri line are perfect for stamping.

The Halloween Insta-Dri's are limited edition and are available at retailers that carry Sally Hansen.

Nail of the Day: Born Pretty Holo Green #12


Hey beauties! I wanted to share my nail of the day. It's a gorgeous holographic green nail polish from Born Pretty Store.

I don't know what it is but I've been loving greens lately.  This one is pretty indoors but stunning in the sunlight.  This polish doesn't have a name, only a number, which is Number 12.

 I only needed 2 coats which is good because you only get 6 ml of polish. 

 For the base coat I used Essie Grow Stronger and applied Orly Bonder on top of Essie to help prevent chipping.  For top coat I used New York City In A Minute Quick Dry. 

I'm loving this polish right now!
