Guest post! Marta from ChitChat Nails!!

Good Morning beauties!
Today I have for you a post from my lovely and talented  friend Marta, she's the author of ChitChat Nails blog. When I asked Marta to do a guest post she accepted immediately and she prepared a beautiful manicure for you to enjoy. 
Thank you Marta, I appreciate it, It's always a pleasure having you here.


♥♥♥


Hello Lovely Ladies!!!
My name is Marta and I have a little Canadian nail polish blog called ChitChat Nails.  This is the second time that Carolina has asked me to do a guest post for her and I am just as honored this time as I was the first.  Carolina has become a very dear friend to me (as well as continuing to be one of my everything-nail-polish-related mentors).  I feel as thought I am among friends here on her blog.  This doesn't mean that I wasn't nervous when thinking up an idea for this manicure.  I knew I couldn't match Carolina's creativity, nor her stamping skills... so I decided to revamp a Black, White & Bronze manicure I did a while back on my own blog.  I really like this color combination, so much so that I decided to use this guest post as an excuse to wear it again ;) .
I started out with one coat of Misa "I Will Survive".  I then stamped with Sally Hansen "Whirlwind White" and Red Angel plate RA-109.  The accent nails, as well as the dotted details, are done with China Glaze "Harvest Moon".
I used some BornPrettyStore flat-back pearls on the accent nails as well.
I hope you like this look!
Carolina, your blog is always filled with creative looks and a passion for nail polish that is quite hard to find elsewhere.  Thank you for allowing me to share my work with your wonderful readers :D

Color Club Take Wing Collection, Swatches and Review

Good Morning everyone!

All of these shades have jelly glass shimmery finishes. I used base and top coat on all these swatches.

 Daisy Does It
A bright shimmery sunshine yellow. Three coats.

Sparkle And Soar 
A vibrant shimmery orange. Three coats.

 Fly With Me
A light yellow toned shimmery green. Three coats.

Metamorphosis 
A gorgeous shimmery  teal. Three coats.

 Sky High
A beautiful shimmery blue. Three coats.

Wing Fling 
Gorgeous pink/magenta shimmery. Three coats.
I'm in love with this collection, the shimmer on these is incredibly amazing. The formula was very easy to work with and the application was great.
Metamorphosis stole my ♥, I see myself wearing these colors on my toes the entire summer.
Which one is your favorite?

OPI The Amazing Spiderman Collection, Swatches and Review

Hello!!
Today I have for you another new collection from OPI, The Amazing Spiderman Collection. This limited edition collection comes out in May and features six new shades and one crackle effect nail polish.

Call Me Gwen-Ever,  is a coral orange creme, the formula was excellent and was opaque in two coats.

Your Web Or Mine?, is a medium pink with frost finish.I applied two coats, this is my least favorite from the collection, frost finish is not my cup of tea. I applied two coats.

My Boyfriend Scales Walls, this is a dusty white creme, very pretty and easy to apply, great formula. This is two coats.

Into the Night, is a shimmery medium blue, a little bit sheer, I needed three coats for full opacity.
                                          


Number One Nemesis, is a deep metallic grey/green shimmer. This one seems to be a dupe for Chanel Graphite. The formula was great and I applied two coats.


Just Spotted The Lizard, a golden green duo chrome. The formula was very good and needed three coats for full opacity. This one is a dupe for Chanel Peridot.

Shatter The Scales, is a dark green shimmery shatter.
Over Your Web Or Mine?

Over Call Me Gwen-Ever

Over My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Overall, I like this collection without the pink, I would love to see a red instead. The formula was excellent and there's two dupes from Chanel at  affordable prices.

Thank you very much for watching!
