Iconic Luxury Nail Colour Swatches & Review;


A few weeks ago, I was contacted by April of Iconic Lifestyle, who just launched her new line of nail polishes, Iconic Luxury Nail Colour. She sent me three polishes from the Parisian Socialite collection to review.

First up is 2 coats of French Kiss. A muted lavender with silver shimmer. Unfortunately, these kind of colors give me slight lobster hands, but regardless, FK was very easy to apply and it looks beautiful.

2 coats of Merci Me; ooooh, I love this one! A dusty, muted seafoam with silver and (I think) pink & blue shimmer, but the silver is a lot more dominant. The pink shimmer was a bit more noticeable irl.

2 coats of I CAN CAN Shop. Bright raspberry pink with some coral undertones and pink shimmer; absolutely b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

All 3 polishes were easy to apply; Merci Me was a tad bit thicker than the other two but it's easy to work with. A big thanks to April for the polishes; be sure to check out the Iconic Lifestyle site to see the rest of the Iconic Luxury Nail Colours.

Have a good one!,

Precision Nail Lacquer - Oasis Collection Review + Swatches;

hey :)

For today, I want to share some swatches of Precision Nail Lacquer polishes, more specifically, polishes from their Oasis Collection.

3 coats of Sage. There is a silver shimmer that runs through the polish, you can kind of see the shimmer in my photos; Sage is actually a tiny bit darker irl.

3 coats of Sandstorm; squishy, jelly goodness :) Sandstorm leans a bit more 'camel' toned irl.

2 coats of Been There Dune That; it's a bit darker irl. BTDT builds up really easily and has taupe / mauve undertones.

3 coats of You’re in De-Nile River, is that not the cutest name or what? :) Brownish with mauve undertones.

2 coats of Sahara Deserted Me; loooove this one! A dusty rose-ish jelly; builds up really easily.

2 coats of Scorpion King. Charcoal base with silver and multi-colored shimmer.

A macro of the shimmery goodness~

The polishes are easy to work with and beautiful! Precision Nail Lacquer's run for $5.95 on the site, be sure to check them out :) A big thanks to Ernest for sending me the collection to review~

Have a good one!,

My First Deborah Lippmann Polish;

hi :)

Although it's nothing too special, I just wanted to share my first Deborah Lippmann polish, Let's Go Crazy.

This is 3 coats, photo taken with flash. Deep eggplant, jelly-ish base with multi-colored glitters.

Photo taken without flash which shows the colors of the glitters. Pretty :)

Have a good one!,

MP Nails Inspired Mani;


My mani was inspired by this mani, done by Madeline Pool. Once again, because I did this mani so long ago -- I'm not sure on which polishes I used. .. apologies.

I really liked this mani :D

Have a good one!,

"Aly En Vogue" Inspired Mani;


This was inspired by Steph Stone's mani -- which she used the NCLA nail wraps "Aly En Vogue" that she designed. Aren't they beautiful!? I love the design so much, I decided to free-hand them~ I have on 2 coats of China Glaze's Mimosa's Before Mani's and 2 coats of Orly's Pure Porcelain over the florals. The studs are from this stud box.

Have a good one!,

Cacee BFE Crimson Mist + Chloe and a Rose Mani;

hey :)

A while ago, Tony of Cacee sent me a package of beautiful polishes -- unfortunately, I was only able to swatch a few of those polishes (as seen here, here, here, here, and here). So today, I will be sharing two more Cacee BFE nail polishes.

2 coats of Crimson Mist. This is kind of an unusual polish yet it's so fascinating! Just look at that strong blue shimmer! The first coat was super thin but it evened out by the second coat.

1 coat of Chloe. It covers perfectly in one coat! :) Chloe is a dark, dark, dark gray with slightly blue undertones; in most lightings, it look black ... but it's definitely not black.

The floral in this mani was inspired by Chelsea King's Dr. Martens Floral Inspired mani. I can honestly say that I'm not sure what colors I used for the florals, I do know that I used Studio M's Gold Glitter for the tips :P

A big thanks to Tony from Cacee for the polishes. There are still a few more swatches I need to post, but I'll get to those soon. Be sure to check out the Cacee BFE polishes, there are many, many beautiful polishes to choose from!

Have a good one!,
