Liquid Sky Lacquer Caribbean Dream - Exclusive!

Today on the blog, I have a semi-secret polish, LOL.  This is Caribbean Dream by Liquid Sky Lacquer.  It is a custom from a group I am in and I have since let it go.  I looove LSL holo polishes but I do own another similar one, Shanel's Cyan, that fits well in my collection.

However, CD is beautiful so it does deserve a blog post.  Check it out!

Like all LSL polishes, this is gorgeous and opaque in 3 thin coats.  The formula is easy to work with and the finish is holo and so, so pretty!

Ellison's Organics - 4 Polish Review (& 1 Dr. Who Themed Polish!)

Today I have an exciting review
all for you
because one polish is themed from Dr. Who!

Rhyme too corny? LOL, sorry.  But still!  I have 4 polishes from Ellison's Organics, who recently released a huge Dr. Who themed collection!

Now, don't get mad at me, but I have never watched Dr. Who.  (I know, I know.)  However, this does not mean I can't love the polish any less than you Whovians!  So, let's start with this one, a gorgeous green blue shifter called Allsons-y!

This polish went on flawlessly and is opaque in 2 coats.  I love the shift so I took quite a few photos! :)  My only complaint is the slightly visible brush strokes but they disappear in certain lights so it's not too bad.  This polish is unique to my collection and I am happy to have it!

The next polish is a soon-to-be-named white creme that is opaque in just 2 coats and pretty flawless!  I was sent this as a prototype and I am including it in my review because it's a great white!!  This gets my vote for YES to make it a permanent polish in the store.

I was also sent two pretty glitter toppers.  Both have micro glitters in a variety of shades with clear bases.  Both apply well, with a good base to glitter ratio.  

First up, this is Happy Birthday Mr. President over the white I was sent.

This is one coat of the glitter topper plus topcoat.  Easy to apply, quick to dry, no complaints.  The glitters are primary colors in blue, red, green, and golds.

I did a second, dabbed coat, of the glitter topper to see how it would build. Nice, right?

20140820_204937

Last but not least, this is Party In My Polish!  Also shown over the white I was sent, this polish is really fun! Based on colors alone - you know me - I do like this one better.  The formulas are identical, zero complaints!

20140820_200855     20140820_200926

Love this one with the dabbed second coat! If you were patient, waited for it to dry between coats, and did a third coat, I think you'd have full coverage, which would look awesome!

20140820_201233

Really nice polishes!  I must say that Allons-y! and Party In My Polish are my faves, but all 4 are really nice!

Oh, I also reviewed Ellison's previously, and you can check out 3 solids and an awesome glitter topper HERE!

2 Pretty Blue Creme Polishes: Barry M Turquoise and Orly Harmonious Mess

Let's take a look at a pair of pretty creme polishes, in blue...and purple..sigh - Blurple?

First up is Orly Harmonious Mess, which came out with the Mash Up collection in Fall 2012, maybe end-of-summer-ish, 2012.  This polish is such a beautiful light lavender, almost a muted lilac.  But it also looks blue in some lights?  I am not really sure where to even categorize this one.

20130928_144705

This is two coats with topcoat.  The polish flows perfectly.  There is no streakiness, despite the pastel quality to it.

And in the bright sun:

Next up is Barry M Turquoise.  Barry M can be tricky to find in the US as it is a UK brand, but Ninja Polish can help you with that.  Turquoise is a creamy, dreamy polish, perfect in two coats:

This polish is amazing, with a perfect opaque in 2 coats formula.  The color is so unique - it's a rose meets cranberry meets mulberry holo.  Application is flawless, dry time surprisingly quick.

Nire's Desire: Love's On Fire!! Hot Neon Indie!

Nire's Desire is quickly becoming one of my favorite indie brands!  I am a huge fan of her unique colors and especially the creamy dreamy neons like the one I have to show you today called Love's On Fire.  Take a look!

Untitled

Love's On Fire is a gorgeous reddish, orange-y polish. There is a very pretty shimmer to it, too. Maybe it's even a tiny flakkie? Whatever it is, it's lovely and really translates from the bottle to the nail well.  The formula is such a stand out!!  It is creamy, dries quickly, and dries shiny!  Say what!

Untitled     Untitled

With many neons from mainstream brands, you get thin coats, streaky finishes, and a dull matte finish. Forget about it!!  Love's On Fire is SO pretty and the shimmer is just amazing.

I do have another Nire's Desire neon, a gorgeous, similarly creamy polish called Lemon Ice. Take a look!
