Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Metallic Collection

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Metallic Collection

Hey! Thanks for joining me on this bright Tuesday morning…if you’re reading this the morning that I posted it, that is. I’ve been having a really interesting time lately using the Marie Kondo method to get rid of clutter in my apartment and also in my personal relationships. Sometimes you have to cut ties with people who don’t contribute any kind of positivity in your life and just serve to bring stress. It’s hard at first, but then you realize just how much they were dragging you down. I did another huge purge of polish just as I received a bunch of new polishes to review but I’m still winning! Today I’m going to show you a selection from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte Metallic Collection which I really enjoyed! Let me show you some swatches below.

Zoya Barefoot Collection – Summer 2019

Zoya Barefoot Collection – Summer 2019

Who would believe that it’s almost Summer time around here? Usually by May, I start complaining about the freaking heat but it’s been super mild around here. It’s windy and kind of overcast but I am enjoying it. I bet that it will be scorching at the end of the month when I will be busy packing up and moving because that is just my luck. I had previously mentioned that I did a lot of swatching this past weekend and that included the Zoya Barefoot Collection! Let me show you some swatches below.

Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! Collection

Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! Collection

Hello and happy Wednesday dear nail polish aficionados! Over the weekend I swatched about 40 bottles of polish and I just felt that my nails and hands felt raw so I ended up filing my nails down to nubs and it feels great. Back in my blogging prime, I used to swatch 30-40 bottles a day on the weekend with no ill effects, but those days are long gone. Due to the blog issues I had earlier last month, I fell behind with my reviews, but now I’m going to work hard on catching up. Today I have the Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! collection to share with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “Prism Polish UK Santa! I Know Him! Collection”

KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

KBShimmer Suns Out Collection

Happy first Monday of May! What’s going on with you lately? I’ve still been working on getting all my ish together so that I can hopefully be out of my place by the end of the month. Even though I’ve been changing my ways a lot in the last year and have gotten rid of so much junk, it’s amazing how much stuff we keep that we don’t really need. The process of going through stuff and getting rid of the things I don’t need is very cathartic even though it’s super time consuming. Anyway, today I wanted to share with you some swatches of the KBShimmer Suns Out Collection which is made up by 9 stunning tri-thermals. Let me show you my swatches below.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

I love matte nails but I hate matte nail polish…does that even make sense? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with matte nail polish because I love the way it looks, but I hate how clumpy and uneven most matte nail polishes end up looking. So what is the solution? A matte top coat, of course! Over the years I have tried TONS of matte top coats and today I am going to share with you the latest one that I have tried. The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat gave my other matte top coats a run for their money. Let’s take a look at it in action. Continue reading “Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat”
