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!

“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.

After Midnight by Glisten & Glow – Review

Hey lovelies! Happy Sunday! How are y’all doing? I am exhausted! I’ve been working long hours every day until classes start back, so this week has just really been tiring. Luckily, I have some new pretties to play with recently, and we’re going to talk about one of them today!

I ordered After Midnight, which is a limited edition polish recently released by Glisten & Glow. I fell in love with it when I saw swatches on Instagram, so I just had to have it! This is the first polish I’ve tried from Glisten & Glow besides their top coat. Glisten & Glow also makes nail care products, such as my fave cuticle oil. Let’s get right into the swatches and reviews!

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

Overall thoughts: We already know that I love holo (especially linear holo), so the fact that this polish is a linear holo WITH added holo micro glitters AND is multichrome just blows my mind! LOL this polish is my first multichrome, it is gorgeous, and I have no problems to report. Very pleased and definitely recommended!

My rating: 5/5

Christmas Nail Slice Wheel from BeautyBigBang – Review

*Press Sample*

Hey loves! It’s me again! Today’s mani features the last item of BeautyBigBang products I received this month! I’m just gonna say right now that the red and green polishes used are nameless, but are from Sally Hansen and wet n wild respectively. So let’s get into the review!

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

Christmas Nail Slice Wheel (SKU:J4289)

Description: A wheel of random Christmas nail decorations.

How to use: After applying base coat, base color, and top coat, I picked up the decorations with tweezers and immediately applied them to my nails while the top coat was still wet. I sealed everything in with more top coat.

Availability: Available now.

Price: $1.29 USD

Overall thoughts: I’m not sure what material they are made out of, but these decorations are really nice and easy to use.  The only issue I have is that some of them don’t lay flat and get caught on things, leading to them being pulled off.

That is all for today lovelies! Be sure to check out BeautyBigBang’s store and social media, which are linked below:

Grey Cute Cat Nail Water Decals from BeautyBigBang – Review

*Press Sample*

Happy Saturday! I have another BeautyBigBang review today. Check out yesterday’s posts here and here. Let’s get right into the review! Don’t forget, you can use my code LALA010 for 10% off your order.

*The following swatches are applied over ÜNT Ready for Takeoff and topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat. Blueberry Tart by Emma Jean Cosmetics was used as the base color.

Grey Cute Cat Nail Water Decals (SKU:J1412)

Description: 1 sheet of cat water decals.

How to use: After applying base coat, base color, and top coat, I cut out a cat and placed it in a container of warm water for 10-20 seconds. I picked up the decal with tweezers and used my fingers to slide the cat off of the paper. The cat stuck to one of my fingers, so I was able to press that finger against the desired nail and it applied perfectly. I let it dry for about 2 minutes then sealed everything in with top coat.

Availability: Available now.

Price: $2.69 USD

Overall thoughts: I’m in love! I think I’ve only used water decals once before this, and they were from a different retailer. I have to say that this application was very easy. My only issue is that part of the cat was transparent, so that area came out blue. Therefore, in the future, I would use these particular water decals over a white polish.
