She' Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone! Hope everyone's week has been going well so far.  I've been busy busy busy with school and of course got sick, but I'm making it through! Today I have a few polishes from She' Nail Polish to share with you, so let's get to it!

First up is Before Midnight. This one is a beautiful dark dusty blue creme.  The formula on this was perfection!  It practically applied itself!  This is 1 coat.

Soft Mink is a classic berry crelly.  The first coat applies sheer but evenly.  It builds up perfectly.  This is 2 coats.

Last is Oh, Tiff!, a tiffany blue creme.  This one has the slightest hint of shimmer but it isn't very visible on the nail.  This one was a tad streaky on the first 2 coats.  With this one it's best to wait between coats.  This is 3 coats.

Twinsie Tuesday - Endometriosis Awareness

Hi everyone!  Today's Twinsie Tuesday post is about Endometriosis.  This is a hormonal and immune system disease.  It causes the tissue that lines the uterus (called the endometrium) to grow outside the uterus.  This tissue is normally shed every month resulting in a period.  Endometriosis symptoms include irregular bleeding, infertility,exhaustion, and debilitating pain during periods, bowl movement, sex, and extreme pain in the lower back and/or abdomen.  This is not just "bad cramps."  It is a real disease with no cure that affects approximately 1 in 10 women worldwide.

Today the Twinsies are wearing yellow in solidarity with those who suffer from endometriosis and to spread awareness.

For this look I used Color Club Almost Famous.  It's not the best formula, but its pretty and does eventually even up.  For the glitter I used Elevation Polish Haba Xueshan which is a black and white glitter with a few light blue glitters in between all in a clear base.

This is 3 coats of Almost Famous and 1 coat of Haba Xueshan.

Elevation Polish Spam

Press Sample

Hi everyone!  Today I have a few Elevation Polishes to show you.  I was a little late to the Elevation Polish party and didn't discover them until late 2013, but since then they've quickly become one of my favorite indie polish brands!

First up is Wai'anapanapa from the Hawaiian Punch Collection.  It has a black jelly base with lots of pink and purple flakie shimmer.  This polish appears to be mostly black, but the flakes peak through and makes things interesting.  Application on this was great.  This is 2 coats.

Quarter Past Midnight is from the Journey Told Through Music Collection.  It's a duochrome that appears blue straight on, but shifts easily to purple.  At random angles you may catch a bit of burgundy and green-gold.  I thought it would be sheer, but after the first coat, it was perfectly opaque.  The application on this was great.  A lot of duochromes are extremely thin, but Quarter Past Midnight has the perfect consistency.  This is 2 coats.

Lost in the Darkness 2 is from The Darkness Collection.  It's a beautiful blue toned green holo with a bit of gold shimmer.  Green + holo so you know I'm all over this!  This one was a tad thick, but still applies very well.  This is 2 coats.

And the last one for today is Limestone from the Stones Throw Collection.  I reviewed this one a while ago and I love it just as much as I did then.  Limestone is an off white (Lulu calls it vanilla white) creme with tiny gold and copper flakes and micro shimmer.  Application was very nice, especially for a white based polish.  This is 2 coats.

Smitten Polish Between the Baubles

Hi everyone.  Can you believe it's already March?  I still feel like it should be January!  Well I'm excited for March, because in the polish world that means green polish everywhere and I love my green polish.  In light of that I had to put one on.

Smitten Polish Between the Baubles is actually from their Christmas Collection and I have no idea why it took me so long to wear it, but it's gorgeous!  It's a beautiful murky dark green holo and application was perfect!

This is 2 coats.
