  • The Trouble With Valentines

    Happy Friday my friends!! How was your week? I'm so glad it's the weekend. I loooove sleeping in so that's pretty much what I look forward to the most about the weekend. This week was a fun nail mail week! One of the deliveries was the sweet limited edition collection called The Trouble With Valentines. It's a collaboration trio between three indi polish brands, Serum No. 5, Lacquer Lust and Cirque Colors. Everything is wonderful about this collection, starting with the packaging!

    First up, "Singles Awareness Day" by Serum No. 5. A deep berry holo that glows in the dark! Sadly I couldn't get it to glow...😕 But I'll keep trying! This is two coats plus my trusty Seche Vite top coat. Great application of this polish. It's my first polish from Serum No. 5 and it's very user-friendly. 

    Next is "Unloved Unicorn" from Lacquer Lust. This indie polish brand has mastered the creation of unicorns! It all started with a polish called Unicorn Porn and each season now reveals a new unicorn. This combo of glitters in the unicorn silver holo base has red, fuchsia and black hex glitters spread throughout. This is two coats with Seche Vite top coat.

    Last but definitely not least...drumroll please... is "Karma Sutra" from my favorite polish creator, Cirque Colors. If you remember Cirque's Holiday 2015 collection, it included two polishes with silver flakes. One called Reflektor which was completely silver and the other, Halcyon was a rose gold version. This polish is a deep, red-wine-leaning-pink version and is the polish of the collection that I just had to have! It's my favorite, applies like butter 😋 and is soooo gorgeous; these pics don't do it justice. This is two coats over Cirque's Holdfast Base Coat and Seche Vite top coat.

    So this is The Trouble With Valentines... What do you think?!? It's such a fun collection and even though the three polishes were created for the Valentine season they're wearable year-round, if you ask me. 

    Thanks for swinging by and I hope you enjoyed my showing off this collection. Happy weekend to you and see you soon!

  • Double Stamped Vanilla Sky

    Mornin' sunshine! Well, there's not actually sun this morning in Colorado Springs, but it's still a beautiful day so far. I hope your week is off to a good start! 

    I have a mani to show you today that I stamped twice for. I really love the depth it gave.

    I started with a pale yellow that has slight shimmer to it. This color from Lacquer Lust, called Vanilla Sky, actually dries matte on its own but I ended up clear coating it for my stamping. 

    I only have three bottles of Laquer Lust but all three apply like a dream and are such amazing colors. I encourage you to check them out if you haven't already.

    I hope you have a great Tuesday!

  • Fashionably Late with Suki

    Happy Friday everyone!! I hope you had a great week. I received a couple nail mail packages over the last couple weeks and here is the second of the two Lacquer Lust polishes I bought. This is a collaboration shade called Fashionably Late between Laquer Lust and Fashion Polish who are actually sisters which is super fun! 

    I ended up stamping over Fashionaly Late with an Essie polish. I really love the images but I didn't expect them to cover as much of the base as they did. I'll have to wear Fashionably Late on its own again soon. I started with two coats of my base but depending on the thickness of how you tend to apply polish you may need three. It's an awesom blue jelly polish with small purple shimmers and purple flakies. It's really pretty! Overall with the two Lacquer Lust polishes I purchased, I'm very pleased. I'll definitely be checking the site for new collections in the future.

    I hope you have a great evening!
