Aries & Galactic Mermaid by The Nail Bazaar – Review

*Discount Sample*

Hey there lovelies! How are y’all doing? I hope 2019 is beginning great for all of you! Today, I am bringing you my first review of 2019. Gosh, it seems like it’s been forever since I’ve done a review; optometry school keeps me busy! Classes start back on Monday, January 7th, so this will be my last post for a couple of weeks.

I was contacted by Meghan at The Nail Bazaar, and she provided a discount code because of the type of Instagram account I have. I checked out their website and decided to make a purchase, using the discount code, when I saw two beautiful linear holos. The Nail Bazaar is a 5-free, vegan, cruelty-free indie who creates nail polish and fake nails in the USA. This company was started in August 2018, and their collection consists of 10 nail polishes. At the time of my order, two of the polishes were being sold as a New Year’s Duo. The duo is no longer available, but you can still purchase them individually. Now, let’s get right into the review!

*The following swatches are applied over Ah ha! Nail Lacquer’s Foundation Base Coat and topped with Glisten & Glow’s 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).

 

Aries

Description: A dark pink linear holographic polish.

Application: Applies very smoothly without any streaks. Easy to use brush.

Opacity: 2 coats

Price: $11.00 USD

Overall thoughts: I am very pleased with this polish. It’s a beautiful color, and I didn’t have any linear holos of this color in my collection. Applies beautifully, and it just overall stunning.

My rating: 5/5

 

Galactic Mermaid

Description: A sea blue linear holographic polish.

Application: Applies very smoothly without any streaks. Easy to use brush.

Opacity: 2 coats

Price: $11.00 USD

Overall thoughts: Like Aries, this polish is stunning and I have no complaints.

My rating: 5/5

Purrfect Shine by Sassy Cats Lacquer – Chit-Chat

*Discount Sample*

Hey lovelies! How are y’all doing? Great, I hope! This post is going to be a little different; it’s not a review or mani walk-through. It’s just a chit-chat about a product that’s new for me. I may start making this type of post a reoccurring thing; just let me know if you guys are into it and suggest new products for me to chit-chat about!

So today, I want to talk about Purrfect Shine. It’s a glossy top coat by Sassy Cats Lacquer. Sassy Cats Lacquer is a 5-free, cruelty free, indie nail polish maker. This indie is new for me, but they’ve been making nail products since 2013. They had a brief hiatus and are now reintroducing their brand and products!

Sassy Cats Lacquer has some really pretty nail polishes that make me wish I wasn’t on no-buy right now! LOL they also make liquid nail tape and stamping products. And let’s just talk about the labels; too cute! I’m sure most of y’all know by now that I am a cat lover, so these labels are right up my alley!

This top coat was sent to me in order to help in the relaunching of the brand, which I am really excited and honored to be a part of. I love all things indie because I know how much hard work and care goes into making their products, which makes me want to support them in any way that I can. To be able to use one of my passions to support an indie is one of the greatest feelings.

To conclude, you lovelies will probably see this top coat in a lot of my future manis. After I see how it reacts with different manis, I will most likely get a review out for you guys to let you know what I think of it after using it for awhile. In fact, I have a glitter mix review coming out in a few minutes, and the mani that I did in that review used this top coat! So be sure to check it out!
