Liquid Sky Lacquer: Fall Holo Collection 2014

Hey guys! Happy Monday! I'm pretty excited today because I actually started something that I was planing too. I'll let you guys in on it at a later date. Today I have Liquid Sky Lacquer's new Fall Holo Collection for 2014. It's so beautiful, but of course, you probably already knew that cause she always releases amazing colors. Get more info down below!

The new Fall Holo Collection has already been released so head on over to Liquid Sky Lacquer to see what's currently available. You can always find more information regarding restocked in the Instagram. This collection consists of 5 new shades perfect for fall. To keep myself from sounding repetitive, the formula was amazing! I only used two coats for all the swatches and the dry time is super short. Plus, none of them stained my nails.  

Toasted Pumpernickel is a chocolate brown linear holo. I really like this brown, not too dark, not too light. 



Let's Take A Hayride is a burnt orange linear holo. I wasn't too sure about this one, but I actually really liked it. Plus, I don't have anything like this in my collection. I love this shade of orange. 




Autumn Equinox is a muted deep blue linear holo. Blues are always a favorite of mine, so I was automatically drawn to this. 

Outdoor (more color accurate)


It's Wine O'Clock Somwhere is a deep purple linear holo. Purples are amazing, and this is no different. Definitely a must have of the collection. Love it!


Indoor (a tad darker then it actually is)

Juniper Berries is a muted forest green linear holo. I did not think this would be a favorite from this collection but I just loved this shade of green! It's just so perfect. 



Overall, of course I loved this collection. It's perfect for fall. The formula was perfect, it's just perfect. You need to get this collection. Liquid Sky Lacquer always has the best holos. Purchase it here. You can also get more information by following Liquid Sky Lacquer at the following sites: FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Killer Queen Varnish- Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I didn't do much. I just binged watched Once Upon A Time some more and did lots of swatching. Today I have new indie brand to show you, new to me that is. Check out all the details below!

Killer Queen Varnish has sent me five random polishes from her collection to review. I chose some glitter toppers and some crellies which I'm sure you guys will love. You can purchase them all by clicking here

Lip Service is a hot pink jelly with small black hexes. I used 3 coats for the picture below. This polish is so simple, but it's so pretty! The formula was amazing on it. It totally reminded me of watermelons so I'll definitely be doing some watermelon nail art soon!

Sugar Town is a  clear base glitter topper with yellow pink, blue, lavender pastel hexes and flowers. I used 2 thin coats over a mint to pink gradient. This is super girly and I love pastels so I really liked this glitter topper. I didn't have to fish out any glitters which is always a plus. 

Life On Mars is a clear base glitter topper with red and gold glitters. I wore 2 thin coats over China Glaze Community. Red and gold go so well together, plus it was super sparkly. The formula and application was great, I'm sure you can get full coverage with about 3-4 coats depending on your nail length. 

Cold As Ice is a clear base glitter topper with white, silver, light blue, and iridescent hexes in different sizes. I wore 2 thin coats over China Glaze. History Of The World. This is a really pretty glitter topper. It definitely makes me think of ice. The formula and application was good, I didn't have to fish out any glitters. 

These Boots is a brown crelly with orange and gold hexes . I used 3 coats. I love the combination of glitters and base color. They go so well together. I also like how the brown base kind of changes the color of the glitters when it covers them since it has a bit of a jelly base. This is perfect for fall! The formula and application was great!

Overall, I'm pretty impressed by this brand. I would give them an A+ for their formula and uniqueness of their polishes. Make sure to head over to their store front. Also, follow them on Facebook and Instagram

Laquerlicious: Polish for Pitt Bull Collaboration with The Em-purr-ium

Hey guys! It's Friday and it's payday so it's gonna be a good day lol. Anyways, today I have a quick post. Laquerlicious has once again collaborated with the The Em-purr-ium to create a Halloween theme set. Check out all the details below and find out how you can help.

Laquerlicious and the The Em-purr-ium have collaborated to create a Halloween theme set that comes with a polish and a key fob wrist strap. This duo will be available for $10 each where $5 of every set will be donated to Fresno Bully Rescue. It will be available September 26 at 2pm PST on Laquerlicious' storefront. There goal is to sell 100 sets so they can donate $500 to the Bully Rescue. It's a great cause and we should definetly support them, plus the set is so cute! 

Chills and Thrills by Laquerlicious is an amazing glitter bomb! There is just too many glitters to describe, I'll let the pictures do the talking. Though I should mention that the base though it's clear, the golden shimmer through out is pretty strong. Also, like any large glitters, they sink to the bottom so Michelle is adding a Baggie with a bunch of extra glitters for you to individually place on your nails. I ended up swatching Chills and Thrills over two different colors. Overall, the formula and application was great. Like any other glitter bomb, make sure not to have too much glitters on your brush to prevent clumping. 

Over China Glaze Givers Theme. I used one thin coat and then some glitter placement using the loose glitters. I really like this combination though the purple came out a bit darker then it actually is. 

Over Elevation Polish I Got The Axe. I used one thin coat and then glitter placement as well. I'd say this is my favorite combination out if the two. It totally reminds me of Halloween! 

The key Fob by The Em-purr-Ium has a chevron design in orange, white, and yellow topped with some shimmer. It's so pretty and is very sturdy. I'll definitely be using this to hold my keys on. It's just so practical. Make sure to head on over to their storefront to look at all their other awesome designs! 

I don't see why you wouldn't purchase this! The polish is amazing, the key fob is so cute, but most importantly it's a great cause. Learn more about Fresno Bully Rescue and what they're all about! Make sure to make your calendars, it will be available September 26 at 2pm PST on Laquerlicious' storefront. You can follow Laquerlicious on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. And you can also follow The Em-Purr-Ium on Facebook and instagram.

CDB Lacquer: This Is Halloween Trio plus Zombie Barbie - Swatches &Review

Hey guys! I'm back with another CDB Lacquer collection. CDB Lacquer is actually releasing more Halloween shades then what I have here, but I'm only reviewing the Nightmare Before Christmas trio and Zombie Barbie. This collection is being released tomorrow as well so get all the details down below!

I love it when indie brands release Disney inspired collections, especially if they're Halloween themed. Nightmare Before Christmas is a favorite of mine so I was excited to swatch this. Again it's releasing tomorrow, Friday September 26th. Click here to purchase.

The Nightmare Before Christmas trio all glow in the dark. I flipped all the bottles over five minutes before applying them to make application easier. So let's begin with the swatches. 

All Stitched Up is a light blue crellly with a slight holo shimmer and yellow, pink, red, black, and turquoise glitters in different shapes and sizes. This is inspired by Sally! It captures all her colors perfectly. I used 3 coats for the picture below. The glitters were easy to get on the brush. I love this one! I also took a picture of my nail half glowing and half not glowing. The glow was so strong! I almost had all my nail under my lamp , but the part that wasn't was still super glowing so I just has to take a picture. It's not the best quality but I just wanted to show you guys.

Master Of Fright is a white jelly with small black hexes and black skull and crossbones glitters. This one is inspired by Jack. I used 4 coats for this one because it's kind of sheer, and also because my nails are so long it takes more coats for me to achieve full coverage. The little black skull glitter is hard to get on your brush but Cheyenne always adds a Baggie with some extra glitter for you to place on your nail. 

Shadow On The Moon is a nude cruelly with green, purple, black, and yellow glitters in different shapes and sizes. This one is inspired by Oogie Boogie. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. I really love the glitter combo! 

***This polish was initially meant to be green but apparently the large purple hexes made it change colors to this tan/nude base. Nothing is wrong with it. It just simply changed color. And because of this Cheyenne is offering it for a dollar less. 

And the last polish I have to show you is a 'stand alone' polish. Zombie Barbie is a pink crelly with red/fuchsia , silver, and black glitters with white and red/fuchsia skull and crossbones glitters. This is so pretty and girly, but still very Halloween. The formula and application was great! Again, the skull glitters are hard to get on the brush but Cheyenne provides a Baggie with extras for your glitter placement. 

Overall, I really like these polishes. This is great for someone who isn't a total fan of really dark Halloween shades and for Disney fans of course! CDB Lacquer always has a great formula and unique polishes. Check out their storefront by clicking here. Again, it's being released tomorrow (Friday, September 26th).  Make sure to follow CDB Lacquer on Instagram and Facebook

CDB Lacquer: Colors Of The Wind Collection- Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Ready for another collection? This time I'm swatching another collection by CDB Lacquer. It's called Colors Of The Wind and it's inspired by Native American culture. I was super excited to swatch it cause it's beautiful! Check out all the lovely colors down below!

The Colors Of The Wind collection is inspired by Native American culture, and it perfectly captures it! The Colors Of The Wind collection consists of 7 polishes ranging from holos, to shimmers, to crellies. There's a great variety and options to choose from. It's being released this Friday, September 26th, click here to purchase. 

Warrior Spirit is a rich red shimmer with scattered holo. I used 2 coats for the picture below. This red is so rich and went on very smoothly.  It's so pretty! 

Mother Earth is a tan jelly polish with red shimmer and scattered holo, I used 3 coats for the picture below. I gotta say, this wasn't calling my name too much in the bottle cause the color doesn't pop compared to the others in this collection, but once I put it on, the holo and that red shimmer made it so beautiful. This is definitely one of my favorites from this collection! It was a bit sheer on the first coat but it built up nicely.  Sorry I couldn't capture the red shimmer but it's way stronger IRL.

Hidden Oak is a rich green jelly shimmer with scattered holo. I used 3 coats for the picture below. This is another one of my favorites from this collection. I'm a sucker for greens , especially if you add holo. This shade of green is on the darker side but it's so vibrant. It's also a bit sheer on the first coat, but it built up wonderfully. I had no issues with it. 

Sacred Sun is a pink shimmer polish with a very strong golden shimmer and scattered holo. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. The golden shimmer is so strong in this polish, I love it! I didn't even notice the scattered holo, it's a nice touch. The formula and application was great! 

Sunset Berries is a dark plum jelly shimmer with scattered holo. I used 3 coats for the picture below. Again, this is a favorite of mine. I'm a huge fan of purples, and this one is no different. The formula and application was good, I did experience some bold spots but it evened out with the second coat. 

Tranquility is a light nude jelly with scattered holo. I used 4 coats for the picture below. I could have used 3 coats if my nails were shorter. I think I would've liked this one more if it looked better with my skin tone. It's still so lovely with the scattered holo. It was just a tad bit runny so apply it in thin layers to prevent getting it on your cuticles. 

Pure Soul is a turquoise base jelly polish with gold and dark brown flakes. I used 3 coats for the pictures below. This is definitely my favorite out of the collection. The base color is spot on, and the glitters are so pretty and go great together. The formula and application was super easy and smooth. 

Overall, I really really liked this collection. There are so many great options to choose from. The scattered holo really adds a nice touch to the usual fall colors. My favorites are definetly Hidden Oak and Pure Soul.  Again, this collection is being released this Friday, September 26th! You can purchase it here. Make sure to follow CDB Lacquer on Instagram and Facebook
