“I already have that color I don’t need it”-said no woman ever (especially not me) lol. When these polishes first released, I spotted them in Kmart. They were priced for more than $2 and I just wasn’t wow’d enough to swipe.
It was at Dollar Tree when I lost my memory lol. I saw these for a dollar and it made me holla!!
There isn’t anything unique about the colors but the formula is amazing, these can easily be one coaters.
Check out the colors I bought.
Aforementioned about the formula, it is excellent and dries to a glossy finish, I didn’t swatch these with a top coat. These could easily be one coaters. I did have a slight application problem with Fantasia & Sweet Angel being a little on the thick side, but waiting in between layers always helps–along with polish thinner.
Now I’m not one to tell you what to do buuuuuut go get you a few lol!

Watermarble is my favorite sport!!
For this mani I used 3 polishes from the latest collaboration release from China Glaze. This collection features 12 polishes all dedicated to my childhood oops I meant My Little Pony. Yes I’m proud to say my childhood, I had all the My Little Pony toys my mom allowed herself to be coerced into buying lol. Sorry mom, I didn’t keep my promise of never wanting any other toy after that lol.
The colors I used below: L to R: Too Busy Being Awesome, Cute Mark The Spot, Sweet As Pinkie Pie.
These wm so beautifully I had absolutely no problems
If you haven’t purchased any of these polishes, you’re missing out a good mani and some good memories.
There’s also 2 LE sets that you can purchase on eBay, Sally’s and Ulta Beauty.
Have you purchased any polish from this collection? Which one(s)?

So I’m finally making some time to swatch the newly released @sally_hansen X @crayola collab, I’m not too late!! These are available for purchase at Walgreens & Kmart (where I got mine). They retail for $4.99.
There’s nothing unique about the colors but the formula is a 2-coater; one coater if you put a lot on the brush.
There are 12 shades in this collection, I purchased only 4 (somebody better be proud of me)!!
Give nostalgia a round of applause!!
So let me put this disclaimer out from now before anyone decides they wasn’t sent for but they wanna come for me…. this list you’re about to read is based off MY experience doing the water marble technique! I didn’t put out a poll nor am I saying I’ve tried every brand known to nails. I want to let other water marble enthusiasts know what I know.
I am a self proclaimed water marble design expert! I love this technique, I really enjoy any chance to wear it; when I do wear it I get lots of compliments of fascination.

*These polishes were provided to me by KBShimmer in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are of my due based on personal experience*
As seen in my previous post where I showed you the upcoming release for this neon collection by KBShimmer, today you’ll see swatches.
While these polishes release today only at Polish Con NY, they will release online next Friday on the KBShimmer website.
Color Me Rad
Please Don’t Glow Girl
All The Bright Moves
Race Against Slime
Double Pog Dare You
Let’s Be Frank
If you’ve been following my blog you would know that I am a huge fan on bright colors in general, polish being a big part of that for me. When it comes out to wearing bright polish, these colors would be my fly to!!
However, I must disclose that I had a few issues with this formula (not saying that the ones you buy will result the same). The formula for the batch I got was kind of thick, stringy & gloopy. I had no issue with 2 of them which was Color Me Rad & Double Pog Dare You. I did manage to create a water marble design using them.
As aforementioned, these will release online next Friday! If you’re lucky enough to go to Polish Con Ny today, let me know which ones you picked up!!
Thanks for reading!!
Hey beautiful people! Welcome to chapter 2 of 12, keep making progress; keep making memories!!
I had a cool weekend attending The Makeup Show Orlando so look forward to a post and video sometime this week (video may be today).
So, here’s what’s on my nails today, haven’t posted a nails post in a good minute. I can’t remember the names of the polishes but all polishes used are by Sinful Colors!!
Thanks for reading and have a great week!!
Hey beauties good morning….. Are you all made up with somewhere to go lol or sittin in front of the mirror admiring the beat, why not right– I feel ya!
What I have for you all is a review of some products sent to me by a company called Madam Glam. Last week the company contacted me about wanting to send me some products to try. After reviewing their site I saw that they’re a cosmetics company that sells an array of nail polish & cosmetics. Of course me being a polish addict I had to try their polish & when I spotted that they have matte lipsticks I NEEDED to try them too (yes please and thanks lol). I was asked to pick out a few items and so I did…..
I picked up these 4 polishes and two matte lipsticks
Polish swatches are first up to the mic, they’re applied with 2 coats & without a top coat. The formula was perfect, dried semi matte with the first coat but dried shiny with the second coat. These retail on their site for $10.95 which I found to be a bit much considering that the bottles aren’t that big (0.5oz). I didn’t have any issues with the formula for any of the polishes.
Not your usual purple
C’est Extra (glitter)
Be My Baby
Now for the lippies….
I found that the formula is indeed matte and it doesn’t have a drying uncomfortable feeling on my lips. These are also a small-sized package of only 4.5 grams. I do love the packaging, I always love an all black sleek look to products. These retail on the site for $15.95 which again I find to be a lot of money for such a small amount. Lasting performance for them is about 4.5-5 hours but I found that during application the lipstick is a little stiff to apply in order to reach opacity.
This is Kocakola
This is Metro Red
I’m pleased with the products I chose to review, but I feel that the product size should be bigger in volume for the price.
To check out more of their products you can visit their site HERE, tell em I sent ya :).
