Aurora Lacquers - Bridal Bliss Collection

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have Aurora Lacquers's Bridal Bliss Collection to share with you! This collection consists of six gorgeous, feminine shades.


All swatches were topped with Gem Glam Top Coat by Dream Polish for a super glossy finish. Now, let's get to these bridal beauties! 






"I Do" is a bright, beautiful pink linear holographic polish. Shown here is two smooth and easy coats. I just love this polish. It is the perfect shade of pink and the addition of holo makes it so eye-catching and just lovely!







"Classic" is a soft peachy pink creme polish. Shown here is two buttery coats. The formula was nice and self-leveled really well. This is such a gorgeous neutral shade that would most definitely be perfect for a wedding-day manicure. 






"Bridal Bliss" is a pale pink pearly polish filled with pink to purple color shifting micro flakes. Shown here is three thin coats. This polish is delicate and feminine while still having a fun shimmer to liven it up. 



When worn over black, you can really see those gorgeous flakes! Shown here is one coat worn over a black creme. 







"Romance" is a pinkish pale violet creme polish filled with tiny silver micro flakes. Shown here is two easy coats. The shimmer afforded by the silver flakes is just the right amount of sparkle to compliment this delicate color. 







"Wedding Glamour" is a clear based glitter topper packed with small holographic silver hex glitter, iridescent hex glitter, and super fine silver and iridescent glitter. Shown here is two coats worn over "Classic." This polish is great as a glitter topper, but could also be worn for full-coverage in a few more coats or by using the sponging method. "Wedding Glamour" would look fabulous over any color as well. 







"Forever" is a silvery violet linear holographic polish. Shown here is two smooth and easy coats. When I first looked at this beauty in the bottle, I thought it was silver, but when I went outside, I was dazzled by the soft and beautiful holo-filled purple that graced my nails. This polish is understated and eye-catching all at once!






Aurora Lacquers's Bridal Bliss Collection is to die for! It is the perfect selection of beautifully understated colors with just the right amount of sparkle thrown in. Each polish possessed a nice formula, and I think there is something here for everyone, whether you love a good holo or a neutral workplace-friendly shade. 

This collection will be available for purchase Friday, May 8th at 4PM EST.

Mango Bunny Polish - Sunkissed Neons Collection

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have Mango Bunny Polish's Sunkissed Neons Collection to share with you. This collection consists of six fun and bright colors that will be perfect for all your spring and summer manis!


All swatches were topped with one coat of Gem Glam Top Coat by Dream Polish for a super glossy finish. Now, let's get to these bold and sparkly beauties! 




"Iris You Were Here" is a vibrant neon violet creme filled with holographic shimmer and golden micro flakes. Shown here is two easy coats. I love how the sunlight catches those golden flakes; so gorgeous! 

Flakes for days!






"Pinking About Summer" is a neon pink creme filled with holographic shimmer and gold micro flakes. Shown here is two coats. This color is so hot that you may need to call the fire department! It is literally so hot pink that is seems to glow in the sun. 







"Come to Papaya" is a neon orange creme filled with holographic shimmer and golden micro flakes. Shown here is two smooth and easy coats; however, this baby was almost a one-coater. You totally need sun glasses for this beauty! I don't often love the color orange, but I can't get over over how much I love this orange. The gold shimmer is just so stunning!






"Hand L'ocean" (pronounced like lotion) is a teal creme filled with holographic shimmer and golden micro flakes. Shown here is two smooth coats. This color reminds me of the beach with its mixture of blue and gold. So fun!







"#LushLyfe" is a vibrant lime green creme filled with holographic shimmer and golden micro flakes. Shown here is two coats. "#LushLyfe" was inspired by the luscious foliage brought about by all the spring rain, and it is downright gorgeous!







"Christmas in July" is a bright royal blue creme filled with holographic shimmer. Shown here is two coats. Although this color sort of stands out from the rest of the collection, it is still vibrant and fun, which makes it perfect for those summer manis. 






This entire collection is so perfect! I just love how the golden flakes and holographic sparkle really make the word "Sunkissed" a fitting adjective to describe each of these polishes. The formulas were excellent and they were all highly pigmented. Despite their high pigmentation, I did not experience any staining issues. These flakey neon beauties will make a perfect addition to any collection!

The Sunkissed Neons Collection will be available for purchase this Friday, May 1st and will be available as a set or individually. 

Prices:
6-piece collection: $36.00
Individual: $7.00

Killer Queen Varnish - New Releases

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have some new polishes from Killer Queen Varnish to share with you! These polishes will be available today, Saturday, April 25th at 10AM PST.


All swatches were topped with Gem Glam Top Coat by Dream Polish for a super glossy finish. Now, let's get to these stunners! 



Let's start with my favorite!


"Pink Moon" is a black jelly filled with small metallic hot pink and sky blue hex glitter and slightly larger metallic lavender hex glitter. Shown here is three thin and easy coats. I literally can't even. This polish is 100% perfection and definitely makes it to my list of all-time favorite polishes! Just look at it! It is so deep and sparkly and downright dreamy! Ah, I just love it! 








"Ordinary World" is a clear-based glitter topper filled with matte black, chiffon pink, sky blue and silver hex glitter, matte black circles, matte silver squares, iridescent squares and hexes, and metallic silver hex glitter. Shown here is two coats over "That's Shore Bright" by China Glaze. I totally love how this looks over bright purple, but it would definitely look awesome over any color. 







"Head Underwater" is a bright sky blue creme filled with silver micro flakes that shimmer beautifully in the sunlight. Shown here is two buttery smooth coats. What a gorgeous blue! It is so perfect for spring and summer!







"Walk on the Wild Side" is a clear-based glitter topper filled with matte black leopard spots, hexes, and circles, matte chiffon pink hex glitter in two sizes, metallic silver hex glitter in two sizes, and metallic teal hex glitter. Shown here is two coats with placement of most of the large glitter over "Head Underwater." As with any large glitter, you will need a few coats of top coat to smooth them out a little. I love the addition of the colorful glitter with the silver and black, it really gives this wild topper a fun spring twist.  







"Lip Service" is a hot pink creme filled with fine black glitter. Shown here is one coat. Yeah, I said it. Just one gorgeous, buttery smooth coat. "Lip Service" is not a new polish, but it has been reformulated and is better than ever! The gorgeous pink is the same as the original formula, however Sommer opted for micro glitter instead of the slightly larger glitter of the original formula. This speckled beauty is perfection! 






Um, how gorgeous are these polishes!? I just love them! They are so colorful and fun! The formulas were all excellent as is normal for Killer Queen Varnish. These five beauties will be released today at 10AM PST, and you definitely don't want to miss out!

Ever After Polish - Valerie Haines Trio and Fundraiser

Press Sample 

Greetings! Today, I have a special trio of polishes from Ever After Polish to share with you! The lovely ladies of Ever After Polish were made aware of a wonderfully selfless woman named Valerie who dedicated her life to caring for her five adoptive children, all of whom have extensive medical care needs. Sadly, Valerie passed on last week leaving behind her legacy of compassion and kindness. To help aid Valerie's family in caring for her children and final expenses, Ever After Polish created three gorgeous polishes inspired by Valerie. Starting this Friday, April 24th at 8AM EST until midnight EST Sunday, April 27th, Ever After Polish will be donating a percent of the proceeds from the sale of all polishes listed in their shop to Valerie's family.


All swatches were topped with Gem Glam Top Coat by Dream Polish for a super glossy finish. Now let's get to these sparkly beauties!






"Viva la Valerie" is a super fine holographic silver micro glitter polish with scattered metallic blue and red hex glitter of varying sizes. Shown here is two smooth and easy coats. Valerie was like superwoman in her every day life, which inspired the colors for this gorgeous polish. I love how the red and blue is so evenly scattered throughout the silver base, and boy does this beauty sparkle in the sunlight. Simply stunning!







"Footprints in the Sand" is a sandy colored rose pearl polish filled with super fine holographic gold glitter,  green mosaic glass hex glitter, and metallic purple and blue shard glitter. Shown here is two easy coats. "Footprints in the Sand" was inspired by sea glass and sand, which it so perfectly embodies. 







"PHighting" is a vibrant periwinkle creme filled with magenta micro flakes and periwinkle shimmer. Shown here is two buttery smooth coats. I found that the periwinkle shimmer is more prominent in direct light, while the pink micro flakes really show themselves in indirect light. It's so lovely! Valerie's eldest daughter, Laycee, is in a constant battle with Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) among other debilitating health issues. "PHighting" is a beautiful way to remind yourself that there are others out there fighting to live normal lives with serious medical conditions. For more information about Pulmonary Hypertension, visit: http://phassociation.org.








Theses three polishes are truly beauties! The formulas are fantastic and their compositions are super creative. What is even better, is that a percentage of all sales made between 8AM Friday and midnight on Sunday will be used to help a family that truly needs it. Don't forget to set an alarm, so you can get your hands on these sparkly babies.
