SinfulColors Swatches!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I have 4 polishes from what I think is the Holiday Collection from SinfulColors.

First is Sleigh My Name, a white gold/champagne glitter flakie combo. Honestly... I do not like this polish. The combination of glitters in the base makes it very difficult to apply. I love the color, I wish it applied better but it was kind of a mess. This was 3 coats, and you can see that it's still sheer and even with topcoat, quite lumpy.

Gold A La Mode is a brassy gold jelly with flakies. This had a better formula than the first polish (all of the remaining polishes do, honestly) and even though it's still a bit sheer, it is much more even. This was 3 coats.

Walk the Walk is a cherry red jelly flakie. This was 3 coats.

Don't Flake is a blue jelly flakie. This was 2 coats.

I do like these but they weren't my very favorite. I want to try layering them over similar colors and maybe that will help me to really love them!

Have you found or tried these? What did you think?

KBshimmer Holo Swatches, Part 2!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

Clearly I was a good blogger and scheduled posts for this lovely Thanksgiving Day. I'm currently cooking up a storm :)

More KBShimmer holo swatches today! I know that it's probably not the most exciting thing to see older polishes swatched but I feel really great about swatching these untrieds!

Thistle Be The Day is a lilac holo. This was another beautiful formulated polish and covered in 2 coats.

Blue-d Lines is a pale blue holo, with crazy holo capabilities. This was 2 coats!

Up and Cunning is a gorgeous teal holo. This was 2 easy coats.

Do you own any of the KBShimmer holos? What are your favorites?

KBShimmer Holo Swatches!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I am continuing my KBShimmer untrieds and this week, I have some gorgeous holos to show you!

Run! It's The Coppers! Is a beautiful copper linear holograph. As per usual with KBShimmer, the formulas on all of these polishes were fantastic. This covered completely in 3 coats.

Rust No One is a rusty orangey red holo. This is 2 coats!

Kringle All The Way is an assorted red, green, silver glitter topper that was released a few years ago and the proceeds went to charity. And yep, it's been untried for that long. Sigh. This was one coat with a few of the larger glitters blobbed on.

Poppy Kisses is a bright red holo. This had an AMAZING formula and covered in two coats. I Love love love this red!

Twinsie Tuesday: Share Your Polish Collection

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose


Today we are sharing our polish collections, which is terrifying and embarrassing, lol. I do quite like how I have my polishes organized, except that I need to purge so I don't have to buy a 4th helmer 🙊  

One thing I will mention is that I am not going to be going through the drawers.... that would be wayyyyy too many pictures! LOL! So an overview will have to suffice :-p

Here is the bulk of my polish. I have my polishes organized by brand and don't really have a system other than that, other than my Zoya, China Glaze, and OPI polishes are sorted by color with the drawer.


This is my bucket of "polishes that I have swatched and need to put back in or find room for in my helmers". Whoops. Moving on... and the bucket behind that is a small bucket of untrieds... Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.


This is the rack that sits on my nail polish desk, mainly holding polishes that I need to review or polishes that I want to swatch for collabs or upcoming posts. I had to black and white this one, muahahahahhaah!!


And that's basically it...  I'm excited to see everyone else's polish collections! Be sure to check them out!

Bestie Twin Nails with the Little Canvas! Round 30!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose



It's time for Round 30 of Bestie Twin Nails with Alaina from The Little Canvas! I'm not sure how we've done these for 30 months already! Holy moly!!

Anyway, this time we are doing a flower dotticure. I used all China Glaze polishes for this mani, starting with Kalahari Kiss for the index and ring fingers. Velvet Bow is the pinky finger. I used Blonde Bombshell for the middle finger. For the dots, Velvet Bow, Sun's Up Top Down and Life Preserver were used, along with Blonde Bombshell for the gold dots. One top of topcoat, clearly applied too soon after painting, hence the smearing.


Be sure to check out Alaina's manicure. I'm sure she used something awesome. Or something exactly the same. Probably with more words. Hehee.

Fingerpaints I'm So Enameled By You

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

A few weeks back, Sally Beauty Supply sent out a coupon offering a free Fingerpaints polish, with no purchase recquired so obviously I needed to go get a free polish, lol.

I picked out I'm So Enameled By You, a pink, gold, and holo hex glitter. I used it as a topper over KBShimmer Low and Be Bold. I used one coat and then blobbed a few extra glitters on, plus topcoat.

Did you get the free Fingerpaints coupon? Did you take advantage?? What did you get?

KBShimmer Crelly Swatches!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I have a few more KBShimmer untrieds today! These are the untried crellies in my helmer drawer.

Let's Sleigh Together is a nude gray crelly with blue, green, and white glitters. This was 3 coats plus topcoat.

Smoke Signal is a gray crelly with orange, red, and aqua glitters. This was 3 coats, plus topcoat. I love this odd color combination!

Funky Cold Patina is a turquoise crelly with blue, copper, and purple glitter. This was 3 coats, plus topcoat.

Merry Pinkmas is a blogger collab from a few years ago with Cristina from Let Them Have Polish. This is a pink crelly with green, pink, white, and lime green glitters. This was 3 coats plus topcoat. The crelly on this was a bit thin but all of the packed glitters recquired careful placement with each coat.  

Do you have any of these crellies from KBShimmer? Tell me your other fave KBshimmer polishes!

KBShimmer Glitter Swatches

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I'm back with more KBShimmer untried swatches!

This next polish is probably my oldest untried, honestly. I've had this for years and for some reason it just get getting pushed to the back. But no more!

Band Geek is a charcoal jelly with gold, silver, and copper hex glitters. This is 3 coats plus topcoat. I think this is quite unique and definitely not like any other polish I own.

Too Pop To Handle is a magenta with purple glitter. This was 3 coats, plus topcoat.

KBShimmer Swatches

Hey guys!

I was going through my helmers the other day and realized that I have sooooo many untrieds that are not new or possibly even still available for purchase. But I have to blog them so I hope no one minds!

I started with KBShimmer and I have two from that brand to share with you today. First is Sarong Place, Sarong Time, a beautiful orchid creme. This was 2 coats.

Low and Be Bold is a dark blue crelly. This was 3 coats.

KBShimmer can pretty much do no wrong in my experience. What are your favorite KBShimmer creme polishes?

Celestial Cosmetics Swatches

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I have some swatches from Celestial Cosmetics today, a new to me brand! My friend Holly was kind enough to bring me a bag of polish she was destashing when I saw her in Toronto last month and these were included in that bag!

The first is called Lilagon, and this is a beautiful mossy green with a hint of duochrome. This had a nice formula and was opaque in 2 coats.


Next up is Sesir Kipi and this is a dark blue cobalt holo with teal flakies. Another great formula, and covered in two coats.

Finally, Kirimvos, a teal holo with flakies. And yep, another great formula, opaque in 2 coats.

This was my first try with this brand and I was pleased! I think my favorite would have to be Kirimvos, and I know you thought I was going to pick the blue!! They are all beautiful but I love the flakies in Kirimvos; they really stand out!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Swatches

Hey guys!

Press Sample

Today I have two Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes to share with you.

Blacky-O is a black creme. This is pretty standard, and covered in two coats.

Tribal sun is orange and for some reason it is pulling very red orange in these pictures!! I have no idea why!! This was 2 coats, but it definitley could have benefited from a 3rd coat.

Have you tried the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line yet?
