Pisces – Zodiac Sign Polish by Nailed it! Hawaii – Review

Hey lovelies! How are y’all? Hope you’re doing great! My last semester is going really well, so I’m happy, plus it’s time for a review! A couple of weeks ago, I placed an order with Nailed it! Hawaii for the Pisces zodiac polish, 4 sugar scrubs, and lotion. I’ve been using the sugar scrubs and lotion since I received them, and I love them as usual. The only difference is I had never tried the scents Blackberry Blossom and Dreamsicle in the sugar scrubs or the Cotton Candy scent lotion, but I freakin’ loooooove those scents now. Anywho, this is not a skin care products review, so let’s get back on track! LOL.

Nailed it! Hawaii is a 5-free, vegan, & cruelty-free indie brand that makes nail polish, artisan soaps, liquid latex, sugar scrubs, etc. This year, Tia started making zodiac and gemstone polishes for each month! In January, a Garnet gemstone polish was released, as well as one for the zodiac sign Aquarius (review for both here). Another awesome thing is that for the month of a certain zodiac sign/gemstone, the polish is only $6! After that particular month, it returns to it’s normal price. So let’s get right into swatching and reviewing my zodiac sign, Pisces!

*The following swatches are applied over ÜNT Ready for Takeoff and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

*My rating is a 5 point scale based on whether a nail polish has a good formula (2 points), is opaque in 3 coats (1 point), is opaque in 2 coats (1 point), and is pretty in my opinion (1 point).

Pisces

Description: A greenish-blue polish that just screams ocean vibes with a gold shimmer and holographic glitters.

Application: Smooth formula, not streaky, easy to use brush.

Opacity: 2 coats.

Availability: Available now.
Price: $6.00 USD for the month of February. After February, it will be $8.50 USD.

Overall thoughts: The color is beautiful, and I think it’s true to the Pisces sign. I have no complaints and definitely recommend this polish to my fellow Pisceans (or non-Pisceans!).

My rating: 5/5

That’s all for today loves! Be sure to check out Nailed it! Hawaii’s store, Instagram, and Facebook group. I can’t wait to see the March gemstone because my birthday is in March!

Cupid Ain’t Got Nothin’ On Me

Happy Sunday lovelies! How are y’all? Great, I hope! Well, I finally did nail art again! It’s been like a month because I’ve been so busy, but I had to do nail art for Valentine’s Day, of course! Also, this Valentine’s nail art is actually really simple and easy, so let’s get into the details!

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat. I used one coat.
  2. Apply pink linear holo until opaque (2 coats).
  3. Apply one coat of top coat.
  4. Once the top coat has dried for 30 mins, peel off the foil stickers (use tweezers) carefully and place on nail(s). Make sure that all of the edges of the sticker(s) are smooth and flat (you may have to gently flatten it with your fingers; that’s why I wait 30 mins for the top coat to dry).
  5. Apply top coat to the back of the gems (I just do this using the top coat brush) and place on nail(s).
  6. Apply top coat on entire nail.
  7. That’s it!

That’s all for today loves! I hope you enjoyed and have a great Valentine’s Day! Questions? Concerns? Tips and tricks? Leave them in the comments section below! See y’all later. Besitos.

“In Loving Memory of Prince” by Baby Girl Lacquer – Review

*Discount Sample*

Hey lovelies! Did you miss me last week? If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was just really busy with the start of the semester and decided to skip doing my nails that week. I wore the last mani I posted for 11 days and then just went bare until now, so I am definitely ready to paint some pretties!

Today, I have swatches and reviews for y’all from Baby Girl Lacquer. Baby Girl Lacquer is a 5-free, cruelty-free, indie nail polish maker. This indie also makes skin care products, such as whipped body butter, cuticle oil, etc.

Today’s swatches are for the “In Loving Memory of Prince” Musically Inspired Duo Series. I looove Prince’s music, and it was very saddening to hear of his passing in 2016, so I am very excited for this duo inspired by one of the greatest legends! Let’s get into the swatches & reviews!

*The following swatches are applied over ÜNT Ready for Takeoff and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

*My rating is a 5 point scale based on whether a nail polish has a good formula (2 points), is opaque in 3 coats (1 point), is opaque in 2 coats (1 point), and is pretty in my opinion (1 point).

Delirious (Dahlia 2.0)!

Application: Smooth formula, not streaky, easy to use brush.

Opacity: 3 coats.

Overall thoughts: I really like this polish; I love the color shade and all of the glitters. I literally could not stop looking at it sometimes and decided to wear it for the rest of the week.

My rating: 4/5

When Doves Cry

Description: A soft lavender crelly with different sizes & colors of glitters.

Application: Smooth formula, not streaky, easy to use brush.

Opacity: 4 coats.

Overall thoughts: This polish is a little more on the sheer side; however, I do think the color is really unique, and of course I love all of the glitters in it.

My rating: 3/5

BOTH – Availability & Price

Availability: Pre-sale started Feb. 1st and the last day to purchase is Feb. 28.

Holographic Unicorns

Hey lovelies! Happy New Year! I hope you all are doing well. Today, we have my first mani of 2018! I decided to create a mani that really reflects what I like; pink & holo! Yes, it may be a new year, but it is the same me when it comes to nail art LOL. This mani was quick and easy, so let’s get right into the details!

Products used:

How to:

  1. Apply base coat. I used 2 coats.
  2. Apply base color nail polish. I used 3 coats of Spring Fling.
  3. Apply top coat and wait 30 minutes.
  4. Apply the unicorn vinyls to your nails and use the sponge technique to carefully dab the desired nail polish onto the stencil (not outside of it). I used Me & You for the unicorn.
  5. Immediately peel off the vinyl while the polish is still wet (use tweezers).
  6. Seal in everything with top coat.
  7. That’s it!
