New Anne Kathleen collection

*Press Sample Provided For Honest Review*


Today I have for you the new collection from Anne Kathleen that released today! It consists of 5 fun silver glitter toppers and is called Snowfall In Silver. Lets see them shall we!

First up is Silvana, a linear silver holographic polish with different size silver holographic star glitters and small silver holographic hex glitter. I used 1 coat over Orly Gumdrop, and it went on easily. I didn't have to fish for the stars, they came out on their own.



Next is Silvia, a linear silver holographic polish with holographic bar glitter. I'm not usually a big fan of bar glitter, but there is something mesmerizing about the way the holo makes this look that I love. I used 1 coat over Nubar Honeysuckle and again it applied easily.



This is Silver, a linear silver holographic polish with different size silver holographic hex glitters. I used 1 coat over Zoya Paz. Easy application, lots of glitter with just one coat.



Sylvan is a linear silver holographic polish with different size square holographic glitters. I used 1 coat over OPI Dating a Royal. I did have a slight issue getting a lot of the square glitters to come out, but it applied well other than that.



Last is Silvestra, a linear silver holographic polish with different size silver holographic hex glitters. I used 1 coat over China Glaze Mediterranean Charm. This is similar to Silver with the hex glitters in both, but still different because of the sizes used. This applied easily as well.



So there you have the newest collection from Anne Kathleen! I think there is something here for anybody looking for a silver holo glitter topper, there is enough variety in the shapes. These released today, so they are available now for purchase. Keep up to date with Anne Kathleen at any of the links below!

Anne Kathleen - Pumpkin Smashing Not Advised Collection

***Press Sample***

Today I am here with the new Halloween collection from Anne Kathleen called Pumpkin Smashing Not Advised. The collection consists of 5 polishes. Lets see them shall we!

First up I have Blair, a pale yellow creme. I am not a big yellow fan, but this one is actually quite nice and even looks pretty flattering on. I used 3 coats to even everything out as it was a little streaky on the first coat.


Next up I have Tabitha, a peach colored creme. This is very pretty. I used 3 coats again to make it even as the first coat was a bit streaky.


Carrie is the glitter topper of the set. Its a clear base with fine black and orange glitter with black holo stars. I didn't have too much trouble getting the stars out, I only had to fish around for them for 2 nails. They came out easily for the others. I used 1 coat over both Blair and Tabitha.



Next is Morticia, a black with holo sparkle. I used 2 coats of Morticia, but 1 was almost enough. I tried everything to get my camera to pick up the holo sparkle but it just wouldn't. Its there, I still have it on as I type this and even in the low indoor lighting I can see it. Even in direct sun my camera just said nope, not gonna show it!


Last I have my favorite of the collection, Autumn. I just adore this color, its beautiful! Autumn is a dark orange with holo sparkle. I used 2 coats here as well. Again my camera was being fussy, the holo is there, but its not as strong in Autumn as it is in Morticia.


All 5 colors applied really well, I had no issues besides what was already mentioned. Overall this is a really great fun collection for Halloween! The Pumpkin Smashing Not Advised collection is on sale now, so head on over to any of the links below for more information and to purchase!

New Pretty & Polished!

*Provided for Review*

 Happy Saturday! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Today I have a post that was supposed to go up a couple days ago, but in the middle of getting it ready my laptop finally died. Got a new one yesterday, and Im taking a break getting it all set up to make sure this gets posted!

Today I have 4 new Pretty & Polished colors to show you from new collections. First up I have Hootin' & Holoin' from the Summer Fun FX collection. This is a deep red with loads of holo shimmer. I used 3 coats and it went on super easily. Its very strange that in the bottle inside it looks sort of brownish but is definitely red on the nail and in the bottle outside. Beautiful color no matter what though!


 Next I have another Summer Fun FX color, Solar Opposites. This one changes from a white base to a light blue in direct sunlight, with various sizes of blue and light green hex glitters. I used 3 coats again and it went on easy with good glitter coverage without fishing.


Now for 2 colors from the Guardians of the Galaxy collection. First is Draximum Security a blue jelly base with tons of blue glitters and red shards. I used 3 coats, and had a little bit of trouble since it is so packed with glitter. You need to let the coats dry a bit in between to prevent it dragging to the tip and clumping up, and it does need a couple coats of top coat to smooth it all out. But its worth it! Confession on this picture: I wore this for 3 days at work before taking this picture, where I do a lot of scrubbing and cleaning with steel scrubbing pads, and this wears like a champ! I had the tiniest bit of tip wear and no chips after those 3 days. I am super impressed!


Last I have another Guardians of the Galaxy collection color, Something Good, Something Bad...A Bit of Both. This is my favorite of the 4, I just love it! Its a black jelly base with a red shimmer and red glitters. I used 3 coats, and could have probably used 1 more based on the picture, but in person I couldnt see any bald spots. This went on easily and is just so pretty!


All these polishes are available now at the Pretty & Polished shop HERE

3 Nail Honey polishes

*Provided at a discount for review*

Hi all! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I have been working a lot, I just recently went to full time so I'm even busier than before. Today I have 3 polished from Nail Honey to show you.

How cute is this little bee on the tops of the lids???


First up is Matte Icing. Matte Icing is a shimmery sparkly top coat that dries to a matte finish as the name suggests. I used 1 coat over Colors by Llarowe Ocean Water with and without top coat. It went on really well with lots of shimmer and dried quickly. This is sooo pretty!

Next up I have Blue Raspberry, a blue leaning purple with shimmer that dries matte. I used 3 coats, it went on a little thick so I will probably thin it slightly next time, but otherwise had good application.

Last I have Mango. Mango is an orange creme with a hint of shimmer that dries matte. Again I used 3 coats and will probably thin before next use a bit, but still had good application.

3 Marbles For Polish! colors

Hi there! Hope everyone is having a good weekend and is enjoying Fathers Day with all the special men in their lives. Not able to see my dad today but I have spent time with my husband and father in law. Today I have three polishes that were sent to me for review from the semi-new Marbles For Polish! She has got a lot of great colors and I love the 3 that I got. Lets begin!

First up is Lust, part of the 7 Deadly Sins collection. Lust is a deep midnight blue with scattered holo and it is gorgeous! I used 2 coats, but 1 was almost enough with this one. Went on easily and is just the right consistency that I like. Its still super pretty in the shade!



Next up is The Soldier, from the Assemble! collection. This collection is based off the Avengers, and The Soldier is of course Captain America. I was never the biggest Captain America fan until Chris Evans started playing him in the movies, but I love him now! He always just seemed a little too big of a goody goody even for a good guy, but the recent movies make him way cooler and with more sense of humor. Being really hot doesn't hurt much either though ;). Anyway, back to the polish! This one is a blue jelly with matte red bars and silver glitter. As a warning, this may cause some staining so be sure to use a good base coat with a couple coats! I used 3 coats here with easy application, no fishing required. For some reason the red didn't want to show up on my camera as red, but in person you could clearly see the red in it. I love how the sliver glitters come out to play more in the shaded picture!



 And lastly we have the color that had been put up for a naming contest on the Marbles For Polish ! FB page, and the winning name is Mermaid Summer! Such a fitting name. This one is a teal with holo shimmer in it. Very pretty color, I loved it so much while swatching it that I went ahead and did a full mani and wore it for 3 days! I used 3 coats again, with no application issues.



 All of these polishes and more can be purchased at the Marbles For Polish Etsy store HERE
I really love these 3 colors and hope you do too!

Rainbow Honey Lovebug

Well hello there! Its been a minute hasn't it. Sometimes I just can not get into the swing of actually getting posts up. I've been doing my nails and (sometimes) taking pictures, but my laptop had a bit of an issue for a while where it was overheating and shutting off whenever it felt like it. So we tried to use it as little as possible, until we got an external fan for it. We have had good luck so far with it, its been a couple weeks, so I am going to try to venture back into this blogging thing. Clearly I can make no promises though lol.

Today Im going to keep it fairly short, I have Rainbow Honeys Lovebug that I wore a while ago to show you. Lovebug is a milky white base with pink flowers & blue hearts, with some iridescent glitters and shimmers. I used 3 coats plus top coat. Very pretty delicate color!
