KBShimmer Winter 2012 Collection

Hello!
This is the collection I was most excited about. I love KBShimmer polishes, Christy knows how to put together all the ingredients to create the most beautiful polishes.

This Winter Collection consists of nine colors that reflect the season.
I used base coat and top coat in all my swatches below.


Snow Way!
A sky blue base with white glitters and tiny iridescent glitters.
I applied three thin coats.


Hex Appeal
A navy jelly base with magenta, silver and blue hex glitters and tiny micro bar glitters. This is three coats.


Sugar Plum Faerie
A soft plum violet jelly with berry colored holographic glitters in different sizes, a scattering on purple glitters along with lime holo glitters. I applied three coats.


All Decked Out
A forest green base loaded with a mix of colored hexes in various sizes, gold holo hexes and a scattering of gold holo stars. Definitely the best way to represent a Christmas Tree. I applied three easy coats.


Berry Christmas
A cranberry red polish loaded with micro red glitters in several shades, berry pink glitters and purple glitters offer depth and sparkle, and a hint of gold. This is two coats.

Cocoa Nut
A chocolate brown polish loaded with berry colored glitters in several shades of pink. Micro gold adds a hint of shimmer and shine. I applied two coats.


The next three polishes are top coats, I decided  to swatch these over black and white to help you visualize the look over a dark and light shade.


Candy Cane Crush
This top coat is loaded with red and white hex glitters in many different sizes. This polish is scented with peppermint and vanilla, for a sweet mint scent. I'm in love with this top coat what you see in the picture is only one coat. This smells Delicious!!


We Three Blings
This gold top coat adds the perfect shimmer to any polish. It has micro iridescent gold and  faux gold flakes, also has several sizes of gold holo glitter. One coat over black and white.


Wrappers Delight
This polish screams Christmas!! Inspired by wrapping paper, rolls of ribbons and tons of tissue that surround gifts, this polish is ideal to layer over your favorite holiday cream. Red, gold and green glitters in a ton of different sizes pack this polish. This polish will be sold of $10 a bottle, with $5 from each going towards Toys for Tots. This is a great cause to support this Christmas!




All I have to say about these polishes is that they are AMAZING!
I'm in love with these polishes, to me, this is the best Christmas collection I've seen this year.
I don't have a favorite, I like them all!

Even when I applied three coats in some of the polishes, the application was great, the glitters were very easy to spread. The pigmentation was excellent.

I highly recommend KBShimmer polishes, they can be found at http://www.kbshimmer.com/, this collection will be available on November 15 and they will cost $8.75 per bottle except for Wrappers Delight, that will be sold for $10 a bottle, with $5 from each going towards Toys for Tots.

(All polishes in the holiday collection will include a new, flat style brush. The amount of the bristles are the same, they are just flat instead of round. This is not a "mop" style brush.) 

Please visit KBShimmer on facebook for more information.
Also these collection will be available at http://www.harlowandco.org/
What are your thoughts on this collection, are you ready for Winter/Christmas??

Thank you very much for watching!

Chick Nail Polish, swatches and review.

Hey Loves!
Today I will be showing you these polishes from CHICK, these are Big 3 Free, B3F means that these lacquers are as natural as they can be they and do not contain formaldehyde, toluene or dibutyl phthalate (DBP).  Chick is a nontoxic vegan-friendly nail polish line that comes in a super-cute color palette.


With the polishes I also received the Tangerine Ginger Cuticle Oil that not only smelled delicious but hydrated and moisturized the cuticles without leaving the greasy sensation on the hands. 




Gavie Green, is a bright shimmery emerald green, it dries matte but I applied top coat. I needed two coats for full opacity.


Gr8 Gray Owl, this is a light gray creme. I applied two coats.


Punk Chick, a bright orange creme, this is two coats.



Hipster Chick, its a beautiful medium lime green packed with micro holo glitter. I applied two coats.



I'm very happy with these polishes, I love the fact that they are B3F and non toxic . The quality on these is amazing, I love the easy application because of the amazing formula. I highly recommend them. 
The cuticle oil is really good too, I loved the scent and the consistency.

Chick nail polishes and treatments can be purchased at http://www.chicknailpolish.com/ for $8 or $9, depending on the color and $5.99 for the treatments.

Thank you very much for watching!

Happy “Holiday Golightly” from Miss




Holidays are a time for all things fabulous: parties, presents, and polish! Miss Professional Nail
(Miss) is ringing in the season with “Holiday Golightly,” a shimmering new collection of nail
lacquers. These six sparklers are a great idea for fun stocking stuffers and to accessorize your
New Year’s Eve look!
Miss’ Creative Director Staci Dao wanted to celebrate the joy of gift-giving (and receiving!) by
reminding us to pamper ourselves and our loved ones this season. Silver screen icon Audrey
Hepburn captured our hearts playing free-spirited fashionista Holly Golightly, whose love of
shiny gems helped inspire Miss in creating this wish list of winter stunners.
From the timeless, Tiffany-inspired blue to unique reds and greens, these luxe shades will light
up your holiday season: “Under the Miss-letoe,” a pearlescent pine green; “Feliz Navi-doll,” an
icy crystalline grayish-white; “I Love Yule,” a velvety poinsettia red; “Let’s Mingle & Jingle,” a
silver-spangled sapphire blue; “Holiday Golightly,” a glistening Robin’s egg blue, and “Stop
Scrooging Around,” a gold-sparkled ruby wine. ‘Tis the season to channel our inner Holly
Golightly and embrace the Miss mantra that “It’s the little pleasures that count…”
If you don’t the find the Holiday Collection under your tree, it will also be available online and
in beauty supplies in late October.
All Miss products are free of DBP, toluene and formaldehyde.

Jack Skellington - Halloween Manicure

Hello everyone!
I had this design in mind since last week and yesterday I decided to transfer them to my nails. I used two coats of Orly Decades Of Dysfunction, a  pale pink/off white creme.
I used a dotting tool for the face, nail art pen for the mouth. For the bow, I applied a tattoo from Big Ruby. The stripping tape to create the lines and the rhinestone are from Born Pretty Store. The black nail polish I used was Black Creme from WetnWild. This was inspired by Cute Polish from YouTube, she did a great job.




Thank you very much for watching!

OPI Brand’s First International Short Film


OPI pays hommage to its Culture of Color with the international launch of its first branded film. Set to the French DJ band C2C’s “Down the Road,” the video features a surrealistic dance-off between four female dancers and a gorgeous Thoroughbred, as trained by equestrian stuntmaster Mario Luraschi.
                 Named after OPI’s classic black nail lacquer, Lady in Black (known as Black Onyx in North America) brought to the film a repetoire of moves including tap steps and dancing en pointe, while showcasing bestselling OPIcolors on her hooves.
The film’s four featured lacquers – Pink-ing of YouRed My Fortune CookieNeed Sunglasses? andNo Room for the Blues – each represent one style of dance and one overarching theme, illustrating OPI nail lacquer as a means of self-expression.
“I always say that nail lacquer can change your look – and your outlook,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director. “Today, nail color can convey feelings and emotions, expressing on the outside what the wearer is feeling on the inside. In this short film, four women communicate through dance and color. With a trained Thoroughbred who could replicate the dancers’ moves with very little digital enhancement,  we were able to capture the unique, energetic and creative culture that epitomizes the OPI brand.”
 Please visit OPI on YouTube to view!

The other day I received some polishes from Brittany, she's the creator of Nailgasm, and Indie brand with beautiful shades.

This is Ice Cream Dream, a soft pink with matte red hex glitter, pink glitter, periwinkle iridescent glitter, and matte purple square glitter. The formula on this was very good, it applies easily and I needed two coats for full opacity.





I will be showing you the rest of the polishes soon. Ice Cream Dream can be purchased for $7 at Nailgasm etsy shop , you can also visit her Facebook page.

Thank you for stopping by!

OPI Skyfall Collection, Swatches and Review



HI guys!
I have for you the swatches from the James Bond Skyfall Collection. Every color represents one of the James Bond films. They're twelve interesting shades. I used base and top coat for the swatches below.


SKYFALL, a deep maroon creme. I wasn't sure about this shade until I saw it on my nails. It's a great fall color. Opaque in two easy coats.

CASINO ROYAL, this is a purple plum creme, two coats.

MOONRAKER, this is a silver/grey with frost finish. I don't know if I love it or hate it, the application was difficult, the formula was very streaky and shows all the imperfections on the nails. After it dried and with top coat, I have to admit that I liked it! I did three coats.

DIE ANOTHER DAY, this is a shimmery red with orange undertones. Very pretty shade, opaque in two coats.

ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE , this is a very complex shade, is a blueish charcoal base packed with green, gold, pink and blue shimmer. I applied three coats.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, this is a bright true red with gold shimmer. This is two coats.

THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, this is a silvery rose base full of shimmer. This is three coats.

GOLDENEYE, is a yellow gold foil with golden and copper shimmer. I did three coats,

LIVE AND LET DIE, a deep hunter green with gold micro shimmer in it. I applied two easy coats.

THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS, this is a clear base packed with medium size hexagonal glitter in gold, bronze, silver and teal.

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, this is a magenta shade with fuchsia shimmer. This is two coats.

TOMORROW NEVER DIES,  this is shimmery purple with blue undertones. I applied two coats.

Overall, I really like this collection, the reds were very pretty and Goldeneye is the most Stunning gold I've ever seen. In general the formula was great to work with, except for Moonraker that applied streaky and with runny consistency.

What do you guys think of this collection?  Are you a Bond fan?

Thank you for watching!

Carolina♥
