Spoiled – I Gotta Confection To Make

1

This is one of the polishes Greg sent me in a care package recently. It’s made by Wet n Wild.

Here’s the collection.

And if you don’t feel like clicking on a link here’s a pic! I like Uh, As If!

Spoiled Collection

 

 

The polish is loaded with very fine  glitter and has hints of green, blue, and gold. It dries super fast. I’m always curious when I get these types of polishes. I want to know how many coats it takes to make it opaque. That first picture is one coat.

This is two coats. (above and below)

You can still clearly see my nail under two coats. Ok, here’s 3!

I stopped after three coats! Really, the extra coats didn’t make much of a diff to the depth of color. But it did nicely build up the glitter!

Now I’m wishing I had put on Modi Peel Off Base Coat under it!

Ciate Caviar Mini Bar

3

 

For this manicure I used Pom Pom (red) and Jubilee (caviar pearls).

This is a mini collection. It comes with eight mini bottles. Four polishes (5mls) and four bottles of caviar(10g). On the back it lists the picture and name of each bottle for quick reference.

Not gonna lie, I squeaked a little when I got this! It’s just so damn CUTE!!! Plus I love the little funnel so you don’t waste the caviar.

From left to right the polishes are called: knickerbockerglory, pom pom, fit for a queen, and sand dune. The bottom row of caviar is called: prom queen, jubilee, hologram, and candyshop.

It’s a great size and WILL be one of my carry on items when I fly home!

I Know You Know Collection From The Lady Varnishes Part Two and Preview of the Because You Listen Collection

This is part two of my review of The Lady Varnishes polishes, part one is here. These polishes, from left to right, are called: I Know You Know, To The Blueberry, You Know That’s Right, You Heard About Pluto?, Dazzle And Stretch, and Girl Needs A Doughnut.1

You Heard About Pluto?

11

This is a black jelly base with holographic glitter and silver shreds. It’s a very thick polish. It’s really easy to apply and  very dense. It crossed my mind while applying this polish that it would look great for a fancy night out/date night. It’s not smooth, I think it’s kinda edgy, it would really compliment a black sequined party dress. I didn’t try to smooth it out or put top coat on it, I was really enjoying how different it was. This one is quirky and it definitely exceeded my expectations.

Dazzle and Stretch

17

Dazzle  and Stretch is a glitter filled (hexes, bars, and shreds) topcoat that can also be worn on its own. It is only available with the purchase of the entire collection. It is really bright and clean. I loved how simple it was and especially loved the colour. Perfect to glam up any tired looking colours!

Girl Needs A Doughnut

14

Girl Needs a Doughnut is from the soon-to-be-released Because You Listen Collection. So this is a preview! Yay, I love having insights into new collections! This glittery polish has both fine and larger round pieces of glitter. It’s the round pieces of glitter that make this polish special for me. Just like the other polishes in from The Lady Varnishes this one is quick drying.

I Know You Know Collection From The Lady Varnishes: Part One

I was very happy when the post came today. I received a package from the lovely Elissa and Kirsten of The Lady Varnishes. It contained six beautifully packaged sample sized bottles from their I Know You Know Collection, and a preview of their Because You Listen Collection, plus a bonus bottle of polish that comes when you order the whole collection.

These polishes, from left to right, are called: I Know You Know, To The Blueberry, You Know That’s Right, You Heard About Pluto?, Dazzle And Stretch, and Girl Needs A Doughnut.

I have to say my first impression of this range of polish is very positive. I love how each bottle has a little charm on it, and the charm has a colored jewel which matches the shade of nail polish. It’s detail and personal touches like that which really make me feel that this collection is special. These bottles would make great little gifts for nail polish lovers and girly girls. All the polishes are 3-Free and cruelty free.

The Lady Varnishes is owned by two sisters Elissa and Kirsten. They are very approachable and friendly. I am always impressed when people find a way to do what they love and these two definitely have a huge passion for polish. 🙂 They’ve gone from experimenting with polish in their spare time to opening an Etsy store and starting collections!

I Know You Know

This polish took two coats and a little extra dabbing to cover less glittery areas. It’s a matte green glittery polish, with very fine green glitter, and larger white shreds. To apply, the polish is quite thick. This was great because it was easier to deal with than really watery streaky polish. I found it quite easy to evenly apply. There is a very healthy amount of glitter in each brush stroke. A bonus with all these polishes is the drying time, it’s super fast! This polish, although loaded with glittery goodness, wasn’t too coarse when it dried. I liked it because it reminded me of spring and freshly cut grass. 9 10

To The Blueberry

Ok, to be honest I was a little nervous when applying this polish. I’ve had bad luck with blue nail polish staining my nails. Thankfully, this polish did not do that. It came off really easily with no staining. The best thing about this polish is the colour, it really pops! I don’t think it’s possible to capture how eye-catching it is in real life but I hope my camera came close. This polish required three coats to cover bald patches. The polish is a shimmery blue with black and super fine silver glitter. It just sparkles across the nail. Yum.

You Know That’s Right

I don’t usually go for lighter nail polishes, I seem to gravitate more to bolder colours. That may be about to change. Purple is my favourite colour anyway so this wasn’t really a hard sell! This is a very ladylike shimmery violet with purple, silver, and green glitter mixed in, that’s a great combo! This is a very cute polish that I think will appeal to most people.
