OPI - Mariah Carey Collection, Swatches and Review.


Hi beauties, today I have for you the Mariah Carey Collection from OPI, this is the Spring 2013 collection and will be available January 2013.

Eight new limited edition shades inspired and hand-selected by multiple Grammy Award winning recording artist Mariah Carey. These shades include four new OPI Liquid Sand™lacquers featuring groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle.

So, let's see the swatches...

These are the Stage Shades with the Liquid Sand effect. (two coats of each one plus base coat)

GET YOUR NUMBER, this is a matte liquid sand base (jelly base) with blue and holo silver sparkles.

CAN'T LET GO, this is a purple liquid sand base with purple hex glitter.

THE IMPOSSIBLE, I think the name of this one is perfect because to me it was impossible to get any of the stars without fishing for them. This is a red liquid sand base with hex and stars glitters. 

STAY THE NIGHT, this is a black base with dark red glitter.

The pictures below shows them with one coat of Gelous top coat plus one coat of Poshe.





The Studio Shades:

A BUTTERFLY MOMENT, this is a shimmery nude pink.It's a very pretty shade. I applied two easy coats.

PINK YET LAVENDER, a clear base with pink and lavender hex glitter and small holo glitter.

SPRUNG, this is a shimmery copper shade, this is two coats.

ANTI-BLEAK, a creme deep purple with a fantastic formula. I applied two easy coats.

I don't know if I love or hate the liquid sand effect, the finish is interesting and unusual. They look very nice with top coat but you will need at least three coats to make them shiny.
The other colors are very pretty and feminine although they aren't unique shades.

What are your thoughts about this collection?

Thank you very much for reading!

First Looks, this is a very dark, almost black teal base with teal shimmer in it.


Personal Stylist, this is a blue to purple shade.

Hello everyone!
Today I have for you this beautiful nail polish created by Harlow&Co, Nyx is a stunning navy blue with silver glitter in different sizes.

The formula on this was great, I had no issues applying this nail polish. The pigmentation  on this was excellent, was opaque in two coats.

This nail polish is sold out at the moment, but check out Harlow&Co website to see when it will be available.
Harlow&Co is also on facebook and Twitter. Katie is the lovely owner of this wonderful company, she's very attentive and the customer service is always spectacular.

Thank you very much for watching!

About Harlow &Co

Harlow & Co. sprung from an obsession with beautiful nail colours - however, a lot of these nail colours and brands were not available to Canada! Something had to be done, so owner, Katie, went to work sourcing nail polishes that are currently not available in Canada or are hard to get in Canada with all those “icky” shipping costs and long waits. Harlow & Co. was born of this hard work and we take great pride in the products we’ve hand picked to sell to you!
All of the brands we stock are cruelty-free and most are Big 3 Free!
Brands such as Glitter Gal, piCture pOlish and Ozotic are all out of Australia and have been gaining more popularity in North America with their exposure on numerous “nail blogs”, so we just had to bring them to Canada! We are the only North American e-tailers to carry both Barry M and Models Own, which both originate from the UK. And we are home to Nerd Lacquer, an American based indie lacquer company that is both a little nerdy and a whole lot of pretty!
We strive to bring you the best in the nail polish kingdom and we hope that you’ll enjoy our obsession as much as we do!

China Glaze - Tranzitions, Swatches and Review

Hello!
These are three of the six polishes from the Tranzitions collection from China Glaze. These nail polishes change color when you apply a top coat over.

I used a small brush, dotting tool and stencil to create the designs on these.

Modify Me, this is a periwinkle shimmer shade that shifts to indigo when top coat is applied.


Duplicityy, this is a mint green that changes to teal.



Split Perso-Nail-ity, this one goes from pink to fuchsia.


These nail polishes were very easy to apply, the formula on these was great and the pigmentation was amazing I could use just one coat of these but I applied two as usual.

I liked how these polishes change when you apply top coat, if you are good at free hand you could do  really great nail art.

What do you think of these Tranzitions nail polishes??

Thank you for reading!
