New, Crayola and Sally Hansen Insta-dri Collection


Hiya Dolls!

Crayola has teamed up with Sally Hansen and come out with a new Back-to-School Collection inspired by Crayola Crayons.

There are 12 new cream polishes in this bright collection.

First up is White, a very bright, opaque pure white cream.  I needed two coats, the polish is thick but it leveled out nicely.  Did any of you paint your nails with White Out when you were in elementary school?  Haha.

Sunset Orange is a bright orange cream.  I used two coats for perfect opacity.

Dandelion is a bright yellow cream.  I needed three coats of this one for full opacity, pretty normal for a yellow.

Scarlet is a bright red cream.  This was super pigmented, I almost got away with coat.

Razzmatazz is a gorgeous bright raspberry pink.  Another very pigmented shade, I used two coats.

Wild Strawberry is a rich pink-leaning red cream.  This one was a one-coater!

Carnation Pink is a sweet bright pink with a great formula.  Two easy coats.

Vivid Violet is a rich, violet-purple cream.  This one is super pigmented, just one coat is all you'll need.

Purple Heart is a true purple that has a dusty look to it.  One easy coat!

Denim is a bright, royal blue cream.  Another one-coater.

Cerulean is a beautiful medium-blue cream.  The pigmentation of these polishes are so awesome, just one coat is all you need for Cerulean.

Last but not least is Granny Smith Apple, this green reminds me of Summer grass!  One coat.

Lots of bright happy shades in this Collection!  They're available now in select stores (retail $5.95)

Have a great day lovelies!

Matte Nude and Sparkle

Hey Dolls!

Hope your Summer is going fabulously!  I haven't had much time for swatching this Summer, I've been sorting, cleaning and packing for our move at the end of this month.  How on earth am I going to move my polishes?  Does anyone have any tips for me?

I rarely ever mattify my mani's, I have such a hard time covering up anything that is shiny!  I was in the mood for a matte mani though so I pulled out Excuse Me, Big Sur! from the OPI California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017 (see my swatches of the full collection here) and Ce-less-tial is More from the OPI Starlight Collection 2015 (see my swatches from the full collection here).  I used OPI's Matte Top Coat on top.

Have a great day lovelies and hit me up with some tips if you've ever moved your polish collection!

New, Madam Glam New York Gelementary Swatches and Review


Hey Dolls!

I have a new collection from Madam Glam to share with you today.  They just launched their new Gelementary Collection and I have 5 shades to share with you!  These are a gel-like polish with no lamp needed.  Madam Glam polishes are 5-free and vegan and cruelty free.

First up is Saved by the Bell, a beautiful, soft, mint blue.  I used two thick coats for my swatch.

Pom Poms is a soft coral cream.  I love this shade, such a perfect Summer to Fall transition shade.  The formula was good, two thick coats.

Pop Quiz is a sweet baby pink.  The formula is a little watery, so I used three thin coats for my swatch.

Arabella is a gorgeous pinky-purple cream.  I needed three coats of this one to get the opacity that I like.  I'm not sure how this happened, but the color seemed to change at my nail line, it darkened up.  No idea how or why this happened.  This one also has a bit of a different smell, not sure what's up with that.

Teacher's Pet is a peachy-nude with a jelly finish.  I used three coats for my swatch.

The Gelementary Collection is available now on the Madam Glam website.  The polishes are $11.95 each.

Have a great day my Loves!

New! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Fall 2017


Hey Dolls!

It feels like Summer has only just begun, but I have the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Collection for Fall 2017 to show you today!  I mean, it's never too early to see a new collection for the upcoming season right?!

I have 10 new polishes to share with you today!  They are split into two, five-piece collections called French Romance and Run Wild in Morocco.

First up is the French Romance Collection.

Proper P-rose is a dusty rose cream.  I am in love with this one, I can't ever get enough of these dusty rose shades!  Two very pigmented, smooth coats.

In the Sheer is a sweet jelly pink.  It is super sheer (hence the name).  I used three coats and it was streaky up until the third coat.

Shhhh-immer is a peachy sheer polish with the most gorgeous pink and gold shimmer flecks throughout.  I did one coat of Shhhh-immer over In the Sheer.

I had to show an close up of this gorgeous shimmer!

I also swatched Shhhh-immer on it's own on my ring and pinkie finger.  You can see it compared to my pointer and middle finger which has Shhhh-immer layered over In the Sheer.

Love Me Lilac is a dusty mauve cream.  The formula was perfect on this one, two smooth coats.

Cabernet With Bae is a vampy, deep, burgundy with a jelly finish.  I used two coats, be sure to watch your cuticles as it can stain!

The next Collection is called Run Wild in Morocco

Swim Upstream is a deep blue cream with an awesome formula.  If you're careful enough, you can get away with one coat!  Watch your cuticles with this blue, she stains!!

Beet, Pray, Love is the prettiest dusty, muted, berry cream.  Perfect formula, two easy coats.

Jealous Boyfriend is a very deep, vampy green.  This is one of those shades that are so dark that they almost look black on your nails.  I'm not a fan of green polish, but this is one that I would actually wear!

Adrenaline Crush is my absolute fave of the two Fall Collections!  It is so shimmery and gorgeous.  It's got loads of silver and burgundy-purple shimmer that make it a really unique polish!

Red-y, Set, Run! is a bright shimmery red.  The formula is a little runny, so be careful of flooding your cuticles!

I used the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat for that glass like shine.  The Miracle Gel system is more chip-resistant than regular nail polish and provides up to 14 days of wear.

These two collections are available starting August 2017 in select stores across Canada.

Have a great day lovelies!
