Glitter Gal - Belgian Chocolate and Light As A Feather

**Press Sample**

Hello everyone!
Today I have two gorgeous polishes to share with you. These are from Glitter Gal, an Australian brand who create stunning holographic polishes.

Belgian Chocolate is a rich vampy brown chocolate shade with a strong linear holo. I applied two coats to obtain full opacity.


Light As A Feather is a light silvery white with a linear holographic finish. This one needed three thin coats.


 I used black polish to stamp the feathers from the plate LLC-A and added a coat of Holo Blast.

Glitter Gal nail polishes can be purchased here.
They are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Lynx Cosmetics - Mystery Island Miss Perfect

***Press Sample***
Hello!!
Today I'm sharing with you this nail polish from Lynx Cosmetics, an indie brand created by Samantha.

Miss Perfect is a glitter bomb!
Clear base packed with large gold glitter, large neon pink glitter silver holographic and fine matte pink glitter.

This is one coat over black, it applied easily, no dabbing or glitter placement was required.


This is why the collection is called Mystery Island. It comes with all the "ingredients" set in the bottom of the bottle and you need to shake it to discover your polish. (stainless steel ball was provided)

It was really fun shaking the bottle to find out the final product. I like the consistency of the base and the combination of the glitters in the bottle.
Lynx Cosmetics can be purchase here.

Movember Nails - Sephora X Kapow

Hello Beauties!
Today I wanted to share with you the  "Movember" Nails I did to support the boys.

Movember - a global movementSince its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.


I used Kapow from Sephora X, this one is from the Electric's collection. Kapow is an electric neon blue with a very subtle pink shimmer and micro light blue flakes. This dries to a matte finish but I applied top coat. This is two coats.


I stamped using the plate DRK-B and light blue polish from Konad and the plate W109 from Winstonia and black Konad nail polish.


Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by!

Polish Me To Go Cuticle and Nail Care Essentials, (Review)

***Press Sample***

Hello Beauties
Today I have for you a review of some nail care products form Polish Me To Go, an indie brand created by Itzel from Virginia.

I received the Vanilla Cuticle Balm, Lemon Lime Cuticle Scrub, Watermelon Cuticle Oil, a limited edition nail polish (Pumpkin Smash), a clear top coat and white nail polish.



I've been using these products for about two weeks now and I love how they  helped my cuticles to look soft and healthy.

Vanilla Cuticle Balm
 "This cuticle balm has a mix of all natural butters and ingredients used to restore dry cuticles and hydrate the nail bed which prevents peeling, breaking and chipping of the nails." 

I apply the cuticle balm twice a day, it feels greasy when you apply it but it absorbs quickly leaving my cuticles looking great.  

Watermelon Cuticle Oil
"This cuticle oil has a mix of all natural vitamins and ingredients used to restore dry cuticles and hydrate the nail bed which prevents peeling, breaking and chipping of the nails."

The first positive thing I have to say about this is that it smells delicious! I got the Watermelon scent Cuticle Oil. 
I've been using this every time after washing my hands.

Lemon Lime Cuticle Scrub
This scrub is amazing, I've been using it every other day following the instructions and I've noticed a significant improvement on my cuticles. 

Apply the cuticle scrub and massage for about 30 seconds on each nail. Push back the cuticles using an orange wood stick or any other cuticle pusher. Wash hands with soap and warm water. I apply cuticle oil to complete my routine.

As you can see, although my nails are stained, my cuticles are looking healthy .

Polish Me To Go products can be purchase here. Itzel also creates beautiful glow in the dark  nail polishes. This is Pumpkin Smash over White Undie.

Sephora X - Heart-Stopping

Hello lovey people!
This is Heart-Stopping from the new Sephora X line, a stunning light lilac creme. I just needed two coats to obtain full opacity.


I stamped  the same pattern from the plate BM423 from Bundle Monster using white and black polishes from Konad and Eternal Beauty from Color Club.


I always wanted to do this... and taking advantage of the length of my nails I took a chance and did it. I applied Color Club Eternal Beauty on the inside tip.


Thank you very much for reading!

China Glaze - Happy Holiglaze Swatches

**Press Sample**


Hello Beauties!
Today I have for you six of the twelve polishes from the 2013 Happy Holiglaze Collection.

Just Be-Claws
This is a very Christmas red foil, great formula and can be opaque in just one medium coat.

Elfin' Around
This is a coral/red shade. I applied one coat.

Santa Red My List
 This is the reddish pink foil shade. Opaque in just one easy coat.

So Blue Without You
A medium blue foil. This one was opaque in two coats.

This Is Tree-Mendous
Clear base with green and gold micro holo glitter. This is tree coats by itself.

There's Snow One Like You
This is a white texture polish with white hex glitter in it. I applied one medium coat over a white creme shade.
I really don't know if I love or hate this polish, this was made to look like snow, I liked the concept but it doesn't feels comfortable on the nails.

I thought stamping over it could be a real challenge but I have to admit that it was easy. I used snowflakes from various plates and the blue polish from Konad.
 I kind of like how this turned out, I think I will use it again as an accent nail.

This is a beautiful Christmas collection with really nice shades. The formula on the foils was excellent, the glitter applied smoothly and the texture polish is a great new trend.

Thank you very much for reading!
