Alanna Renee Cosmetics "Tranquil"

Hello my loves, welcome to another Try It On Tuesday post! Today I have an Aussie Indie I have been dying to try out for a few weeks now. I have been on a low buy for a while, since my stash has gotten a little out of hand according to my husband, but I had to have this polish! It was screaming my name and begging me to buy it!

Jindie Nails "Don't Get It Citrus Twisted" & "That Purple Ish"

Good morning and happy Monday my polished pretties! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Today I have a couple of polishes from the Summer Chic Collection by Jindie Nails. As most of you know I am a big Jindie fan! Jen always has some of the best polishes around! It's no wonder she has exploded on to the Indie scene the way she has. If you don't own any polishes by Jindie Nails you really should, there is a little something for everyone! Now lets drool over some lacquers, shall we?

Zoya PixieDust Comparisons

Good morning loves! When I did my review of the Fall PixieDust collection I promised you a comparison post of some of those vs a few from the Summer PixieDust collection and one from the original PixieDust collection. This isn't a picture heavy post since all of these shades have been reviewed in previous posts, I just wanted to do a quick post for those who were requesting it!

A England "Rose Bower" & "Fated Prince"

Hello and Happy Hump Day! Today I have two polishes from the new A England Burne-Jones Dream collection that were provided to me by Color4Nails. If you don't know already A England is a UK based indie nail varnish brand. Since royal mail has gotten super strict on what leaves the UK, us varnished vixens in the US have had to find another way to get our talons on these gorgeous polishes! Color4Nails is a great option for all your A England needs! Shipping is amazingly fast and you get a fast response once you send your order! Sisi, owner of Color4Nails, is super sweet and offers excellent customer service! 
Well lets take a look at what we're all here for, the polish!

Lynx Lacquer "Admiring Aurora" & "Rainbow Flurries"

Hello again my polished pretties! 2 posts in 1 day, woohoo! I'm on a roll!  Tonight I have a very new Indie brand to show you, Lynx Lacquer. I have been following Samantha, creator of Lynx Lacquer, on her personal Instagram for a while and when she started to show of her labels for her soon to be released brand I was excited! Her labels have to be the cutest I've ever seen! I was thrilled to be able to try these out and show you all just a bit of what Lynx Lacquer has to offer. 

OPI "The Show Must Go On"

Hello loves, welcome to another Try It On Tuesday! I was stumped for this week since I have some Alanna Renee's that I purchased from Color4Nails recently. I also just got my first KBShimmer polishes too, so needless to say I was torn! That is until I received a package from my girl Allison of Nail Pattern Boldness! She sent me one of my biggest lemmings so I knew I just had to use it for this weeks TIOT post!

Zoya PixieDust 2013 Fall Collection

Hello my polished pretties! I have been waiting to do this post since Zoya first announced back in May that they were releasing these Fall Pixies! I have fast become a textured junkie, I love all the textured polishes I have tried, but I will admit that I love the PixieDust textures the absolute best. They are the least coarse while still maintaining the the texture that I love so much. Plus all of the sparkle, they just dance in the light, better than any others I've tried. These didn't disappoint one bit.

All of the following photos are shown without using a base and top coats, just like Zoya recommends. All are shown as 2 coats with the exception of Tomoko, that one is shown as 3 coats since it was just a tad bit more sheer than the others. Application was amazingly easy, as always. Zoya recommends that you wait until each coat has fully dried, up to 10 minutes, other wise you can end up with a dragging, clumpy mess. Make sure you follow that for hassle free application, I usually wait more along the lines of 3-5 minutes.

My Mint Mani For Talia Joy

Hello loves. I am so sorry I have been away, things have been busy. I  have been trying to keep up with what has been happening while I have been away and everyone knows that the beauty world lost one of it's most inspiring young stars, Talia Joy Castellano. She was only 13 years old yet she made a huge impact on so many lives by being a fighter. She was a bright, beautiful, wise and positive young woman who will be missed. 
Nicole from Nail Polish Wars had a great idea for anyone who was interested to create a mint manicure to show a little love and support to her family. I wanted to join in, even if I am a little late. Here is what I created.

Love, Angeline "I Love The 80's" Collection

Hello loves, happy hump-day! I am so thrown off this week, I am like 2 days behind everything. I had my nephew on Monday and as a result I was thinking it was Saturday since I usually only keep the kids on the weekends. So my brain isn't wanting to adjust! Oh well, I'm trying though!
Today I am reviewing the Love, Angeline I Love The 80's collection, which consists of 5 glitter toppers. I'm just going to jump right into it...

Pretty Serious Cosmetics "The Pink One"

Hello loves! Today's TIOT is a cheat for me, I didn't have time to do a mani so I am posting pictures from a polish I tried out a couple of weeks ago and never got around to doing  a blog post for it. This is my very first Pretty Serious. I had tried to get Naughty Night Shift Nurse but that sold out in about 30 seconds, seriously it was like 30 seconds! So even though I was on the website before the release time I guess my fingers just weren't fast enough. Since I missed out on that beauty I had to console myself with this stunner. So here's my really fast TIOT post!

Alanna Renee Cosmetics "Dementor", "Chocolate Frog" & "Drink of Despair"

Hello loves!!! A couple of months back I did a review of some amazing Alanna Renee polishes! I fell hard and fast for this Aussie Indie brand even before I had reviewed any of the polishes, especially because I saw that there was a whole line of Harry Potter themed polishes...the Magical World collection. I was immediately heartbroken when when I realized that I was unable to get these Australian pretties on my American digits! Then about a week or so after I reviewed my first Alanna Renee's Sisi from Color4Nails announced that she would be carrying the entire Magical World collection!! Be Still My Beating Heart! Sisi has sent me these 3 beauties to show you all today! I am slowing ordering the rest of the collection because lets face it, I NEED THEM ALL!!

Zoya PixieDust Fall Collection *Press Release*

Back at the end of May Zoya gave us a small preview of the new Fall PixieDust collection. Well now we have even more pictures of these new shades and I AM EXCITED!! It's no secret that I am in love with the textured trend and these I'm sure will be no exception. So get your wallets ready girls AND boys, they will be available for ordering NEXT WEEK!!! 

Try It On Tuesday is BACK!

 Yes, you read that right, TIOT is officially back! I had been doing TIOT since the new year almost every week up until I went on vacation back in May. I had hoped to jump right back in to it, along with my the challenge I was participation in and all of my review posts, but I had such a hard time getting back into a groove. So TIOT and the ABC Challenge got pushed to the side and I focused on reviewing. While I love reviewing I really love being able to use the polishes I have purchased too. I have three 3 drawer "Melmers" full of polishes and I'm going to guestimate that about 2/3 of it is untried! This needs to be remedied! So I have gathered some fellow Facebook nail junkies to join me in my adventure and hopefully they will help keep me on track so I can tell my husband "see I have tried each and every polish I own!" LOL 

If you would like to join us in our TIOT Challenge, it's simple! Just click on the photo above and it will take you to my Facebook status with all of the details!

Love, Angeline Summer Rainbows Collection

Good morning my polished pretties!! Did everyone have a good weekend?  Do anything fun for the holiday? I had tons of fun and wish it didn't end but all good things must end and now we are back to the everyday hustle and bustle! Today I am going to show you the Summer Rainbows collection by Love, AngelineAll of these are shown as 2 coats no top coat. The formula for each one was quite thick, so I wound up adding about 3 drops of thinner to each mini bottle to make application easier. I did have some bubbling when I tried to apply them without adding the thinner. These are all described as having a subtle shimmer but the finish, to me, is less shimmery and more foil like: they can appear a bit brush strokie. (um, is that a word? LOL

OPI "Tiffany Case" and "Jinx"

Press Sample

Hello Loves!! I hope you all had a great weekend, or at least better than mine. I was suffering all weekend with a nasty headache, allergies are mean to me! Oh well, today I have more polishes that I received from Color4Nails,  a couple gorgeous polishes from OPI's Bond Girl collection. As most of you know the Bond Girls collection consists of 6 liquid sand (textured) shades. I have Tiffany Case and Jinx to show you today. These two polishes are gorgeous. They apply like a dream, no pulling, dragging or clumping. They both dry in just the matter of minutes and the texture is nice, not too coarse or catchy. Both Tiffany Case and Jinx are shown as 2 coats no top coat and Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter-A-Peel as my base.
