Butter Nail Polish All Hail The Queen

KBShimmer Unicorn Pee Collection

by Cynthia @ Of Life and Lacquer

Happy Monday! Yeah, yeah…I know how most of us feel about Mondays but let’s try to be positive! We’ve gotten some heat relief here in SoCal (at least in my area), so I’m grateful for that small thing. This weekend went by waaaaay too quickly, but I did get a bunch of stuff done so […]

Color Club Art of Seduction and Object of Envy Glitter Vixen

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I ended up moving a few months ago, and then I got behind posting photos of my manis. Here's my Christmas mani so far. I'll probably end up changing it next week since my nails are getting a bit too long. I find if it's too long, it gets in the way of taking care of my kids and typing. Since I'm on the computer almost all day, it gets annoying if it's too long. I ended up putting this on in the semi-dark at 3am. I'm expecting baby #3 in May, and I was feeling horrible during the night so I was wide awake. I thought why not do my nails instead. :) Please excuse my dry and ugly cuticles. The nausea from this pregnancy isn't doing great things for my skin right now. Color Club "Art of Seduction" on all my nails except for the ring fingers which are done with "Object of Envy" as accent nails. I love the thickness of the green glitter, but the red was pretty sparce. It wasn't as easy to work with, and I ended up having to do three layers. And even then it ended up with bald spots. I think I will use a base color first next time.

Zoya Myrta and China Glaze Riveting Comparison

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I got the Zoya Pinterest mini trio that included Myrta recently, and I really wanted to try it out. It's been really sunny this weekend so I was in an orange mood. When I put the polish on, I realized it reminded me of another color I had, so I took a look in my stash box. I have China Glaze Riveting from their Hunger Games collection that I absolutely LOVE, and so I decided to do a swatch comparison. It's not quite a dupe though very close. Myrta is not as sparkly as Riveting, and it has more of a tangelo look to it. It's definitely a foily shimmer polish vs. a glitter polish. Take a look and see if you can spot the difference. Riveting is on the thumb in the comparison photo. It has more of a jelly look to it with an inner sparkle. Both are very pretty, but I think I prefer Riveting more. It just has this intensity about it that I really love. Myrta is also pretty, but it has more of a foil look.

New Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers Plum & Cherry

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I finally picked up my Frontier order, and it was a pleasant surprise to find two of the new colors for Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers. They are one of my go-to lip products. They're kind of a cross between lip stick and gloss, and I use them when I want a bit more coverage than lip gloss. I have several, and maybe I'll do a comparison photo some time. Anyway, here are the two new ones I got: Plum and Cherry. On my skin, plum looks very dark brown with a bit of purple tone but it's not very obvious. The cherry shows up kind of orange-ish red. You can see the swatches.

Butter London All Hail the Queen

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

Butter London - "All Hail the Queen" or aka "All Hail McQueen" two layers Essie base coat Poshe top coat This polish has been around a while but since I always try to buy polish on sale, it's been sold out whenever Ulta or other stores have it on sale. I finally snagged one at the 2nd Street Beauty store on sale! Sorry my mani is a little old. I was out of town on a business trip and had done this while I was out in Florida last week. The photo shows 5 day wear. For a 5 day mani, the tip wear is pretty good! By the way, I took Zoya Remove+ (my fave remover) in a smaller travel bottle I got at Target, and it totally melted it into a jelly-like thing. Plus it leaked on to my other polishes and melted some of the other plastics. Good thing I had it double zip lock bagged or my entire luggage would have been trashed. Lesson learned. Get the bottles appropriate for polish remover! Here is what it did to my polish cap: I really love this polish! It is very work appropriate so I like that for important business meetings. It's very deceiving. It looks like a cream, but in certain lights or in the sun, you can see the tiny holographic microglitter. People who know me know I love glitter polish, so sometimes creams bore me. Now I know this has hidden sparkles, it makes me love it more. Here's a photo. I darkened the photo to show the hidden holo sparkles (click the photo to enlarge it): Here's another side view where you can't see the holo. This shows the 5 day tip wear best:

Are you there, blog? It's me, Ryan.

by noreply@blogger.com (Ryan) @ Finger Flair

Hey, strangers.  How've you been?  Wish I could explain my absence by telling you that I've been off fighting evil villains and saving unicorns, but that would be a huge whopper of a fib and my daddy taught me better than that.  Nope, I've just been busy doing regular life.  Still super loving nail polish and buying way more than is prudent.  Still sharing it with the interwebs, just over on Instagram, where it takes much less effort to do so.  I've decided to come back, though, as I have a rather ambitious project in mind that wouldn't work too well on IG.  Are you ready for this?  Hell, am I ready for this?? 


Well, here it is: I'm going to swatch my entire 2 helmer collection.  By brand.  Oh, man, I'm sweating just thinking about doing this.  But I can do it; yes, I can do it.  I will do it, dammit!  I have entirely too many untried polishes in my stash and that needs to change.  How can I justify buying anything new when I don't even really know what I already have?  I did start a spreadsheet in an attempt to organize my pretties, and it does have them all listed, but I stopped adding color pretty quickly.  You'd think it'd be easy; pick up a bottle and it's blue!  But it's also green and purple and maybe it's a shimmer or a glass fleck or a foil or a duochrome (or is it multichrome?) and hey it's got glitter!  Made my head swim.  So I decided it would be better to just have pictures.  I thought about using pictures from my favorite bloggers, but I want to know and remember what the polishes look like on me and there's only one way to do that: slap a coat or 3 on and photograph that shit.  

So.  First drawer of helmer 1 contains my non-US indies.  I'll do one brand per post and I'll start with aEngland.  Look for that coming up soon.  


Later, dudes!


PS. Holy crap, WTF, Broncos?

As far as my blog sale/swap goes that still remains. The list, however, will not be on my new blog. I will keep it in handy in case anyone else is interested. Please review the list as I will delete this account this weekend.

Going Back 2 Square 1

by noreply@blogger.com (bmwmchick) @ Polish? Oh, My...

Hello Readers,

Well, after trying my new oval shape I really do love it my only thing is they have to be longgg (especially long on my shallow nail beds) and if anything chips even just a little bit it's a real pain to re-file. So, I've decided to go back to square and keep them at a manageable length. I really can't stand seeing nails that aren't all the same length, so if I break one they all have to be filed!

I'll post a mani later ;o) Just want to keep this thing going!

Bridget

Butter London Yummy Mummy | The Beauty Look Book


The Beauty Look Book

Butter London Yummy Mummy is described as a magical shade that flatters every skin color. It’s one of those shades I have been intrigued by for quite a while but have never really been able to figure out from online photos and reviews. Is it a beige? Nude? Nude-mauve? Brown? Taupe? I think that’s the “magic” of this color. It looks different in every review and swatch due to different skintones. In the bottle I would describe it as a greige beigey fawn with silver shimmer. On the nails the color is different depending on what angle I look at it. Sometimes it looks mauvey. Sometimes it looks like a nude beige tan. Other times it looks like a mushroom. It’s odd how it changes color depending on the light. Overall it applies smoothly without streaks but I find it very sheer, much like Tea With the Queen that I reviewed a few days ago. I had to apply 3 coats to get it to show up, with each progressive coat thicker than the previous. It did dry pretty fast however which is a plus. It has the slightest bit of pearl to it which makes it so it’s not …

Hellooooo!!

by noreply@blogger.com (Ryan FingerFlair) @ Finger Flair

I'm supposed to be taking a break from blogging until I can lose 10 pounds.  Well, it's been about 5 months, and that 10 pounds hasn't gone anywhere.  If anything, it's somehow managed to procreate.  By "somehow", of course, I mean "aided by my good friends, Burrito and Pasta".  It would seem that going to the gym really doesn't make much of a difference if you continue to eat foods not found in nature.  Imagine that.


In the absence of blogging, I have been Instagramming my little head off.  I like the format of Instagram because you can share a quick picture or 2 without really having to come up with anything witty or interesting to say, and you don't have to worry about editing your photos.  You certainly can if you want to, but it's definitely okay if you don't.  This is perfect for lazy sonsabitches like meself.  Plus, I like making up fun hashtags.  I will continue to use Instagram, but I also want to start blogging again.  I'll still just be using my trusty iPhone for picture taking, so no improvements there, but I will try and cut down on the amount of pictures per post.  I went back through and read some of my older posts, and boy howdy are there a lot of unnecessary shots!  I'll get a handle on that for you.  You're welcome.  

Hope to see you soon!

Zoya Pink Polish Comparison - Lara, Areej, Audrina, Rory, Reagan

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I really wanted a medium pink polish, and when a Zoya promo came up, I ended up ordering a few that I thought were dupes because I just couldn't make up my mind from the photos on their site. It's also hard to decide with other people's swatches since my Asian skin tone really makes polishes look different than the way it looks on others. Anyway, I already had Audrina, but I didn't LOVE it at first sight so I thought perhaps either Reagan or Areej might work. Here's the comparison swatch I did with some of the ones I thought would be dupes. As you can see, Areej and Reagan are near dupes. Areej is a bit dustier looking than Reagan, but if you have one then you probably wouldn't want the other. In the bottle, Audrina looks soooo much like the other two, but on the nail has more blue than the other two. Audrina is on the left, and I can't even remember which two are on the right, but they look exactly the same to the naked eye. One's SLIGHTLY darker... MAYBE. :) I added Rory and Lara since I got them for funsies. Rory has a lot of silver shimmer in it so although in the bottle it looks similar to Reagan and Lara, it shows up as very light on the nail. It's not as sparkly as Zoya's Sunshine collection. Lara has a bit of a softer neon quality about it. I just purchased a bunch of neon pinks, so I decided I don't want to keep Lara. After the swatches, I decided that Reagan looks the best on my nails. It pops more than Areej which is what I really wanted. Audrina might be a keeper since I do like the bluer pinks, so it's going back in my nail polish box.

Butter London : Victoriana

by Janet @ Butter London – Twisted Knitter

[ Butter London, “Victoriana,” borrowed from SoKnitPicky ] This is the first time I’ve tried a Butter nail lacquer and it won’t be my last! I love the formula and the unique color, not to mention the cheeky names for the shades. Although I was in a hurry when I applied the polish, I was […]

Zoya Pink Polish Comparison - Lara, Areej, Audrina, Rory, Reagan

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I really wanted a medium pink polish, and when a Zoya promo came up, I ended up ordering a few that I thought were dupes because I just couldn't make up my mind from the photos on their site. It's also hard to decide with other people's swatches since my Asian skin tone really makes polishes look different than the way it looks on others. Anyway, I already had Audrina, but I didn't LOVE it at first sight so I thought perhaps either Reagan or Areej might work. Here's the comparison swatch I did with some of the ones I thought would be dupes. As you can see, Areej and Reagan are near dupes. Areej is a bit dustier looking than Reagan, but if you have one then you probably wouldn't want the other. In the bottle, Audrina looks soooo much like the other two, but on the nail has more blue than the other two. Audrina is on the left, and I can't even remember which two are on the right, but they look exactly the same to the naked eye. One's SLIGHTLY darker... MAYBE. :) I added Rory and Lara since I got them for funsies. Rory has a lot of silver shimmer in it so although in the bottle it looks similar to Reagan and Lara, it shows up as very light on the nail. It's not as sparkly as Zoya's Sunshine collection. Lara has a bit of a softer neon quality about it. I just purchased a bunch of neon pinks, so I decided I don't want to keep Lara. After the swatches, I decided that Reagan looks the best on my nails. It pops more than Areej which is what I really wanted. Audrina might be a keeper since I do like the bluer pinks, so it's going back in my nail polish box.

(Video) DE-Fi: What I've been working on while I've not been writing on THIS blog.

by noreply@blogger.com (styrch) @ Pretty In Dayton

I've been very absent lately. I do apologize for that. I've had a lot of family things going on, as well as re-evaluating what I want to be doing with THIS space. I hope that you'll understand the lack of content and will stay with me - because good things ARE happening.

Let me give you an example.

DE-FI: Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator
Last year I got involved with the fashion community here in Dayton. Yes, there is one. There's a lot of talent, desire, drive here but it is not necessarily being nurtured in a way that would get that talent ready for the big world. Caressa Brown, who is very passionate about helping people reach their goals in the fashion community, decided to start a new thing here in Dayton: An Incubator. 

What does that mean? We're going to be putting designers, models, makeup artists, photographers, writers etc. who want to get involved in the fashion industry by nurturing them through the process from beginning to end! You wouldn't believe the amount of support and talent we have helping this happen. It has the potential to be huge (and I think it will be).

You can check out this wonderful article on Dayton Most Metro by Caressa describing the new organization.

We've also had our first casting call - would you like to see a hint? Here it is!



My role for DE-FI is Director of Social Media, along with general volunteer. In that above video, though you do not see me, I was the one recording measurements (incorrectly - but we live and we learn).

So yes, I'll be handling a new blog, new Facebook page, new twitter, coordinating other bloggers and other contributors. I'm looking to make this whole thing as lightweight as possible (and Caressa wants me to continue Pretty in Dayton blog). Please understand if during this set-up process posts come slowing from me.

This is in addition to the million other hobbies I have. 

Would you like to follow or get involved? Here's what you might like to check out!

Most Wanted December 2013

by noreply@blogger.com (queenisabelle29) @ All Hail the Queen

Today is the first day of December and we are in the final stretch of time before my finals for this semester and the end of the holiday season.  I have a few last products from the holiday collections that I want to look for and then I will start thinking about what types of beauty trends we will be seeing for the spring season.  I am the most excited about Urban Decay releasing the Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette in the very beginning of this month and I will be waiting on pins and needles until I can buy and try it out.

I also make a larger Most Wanted List in the month of December, I get inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas and I want to pick up a few extra holiday gifts for myself.  This month I have a mixture of makeup and perfume products that I want and then I plan to try some new skincare products in the month of January.  I am feeling all kinds of new color products right now and I want quite a few new eye shadow palettes this month.

My Christmas List!

- Urban Decay Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette
- Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Eye Shadow Palette
- Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in 24 Karat
- Zoya Zenith Nail Polish in Seraphina
- Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in Absolute Rouge
- Tory Burch EDP
- Benefit Gimme Brow! Brow Gel in Medium/Deep
- Aerin Evening Rose EDP
- YSL Parisian Night Blush Collector Palette Rue de Babylone
- YSL Parisian Night Rouge Volupte Shine in Pink in Paris
- Dior Golden Winter 5-Couleurs Eye Palette in Golden Flowers
- China Glaze Happy Holiglaze Nail Lacquer in Mingle With Kringle

I am so ready for the first new full Urban Decay Naked Eye Shadow Palette since December of 2011, the small Naked Basics palettes are not near as exciting as this release and I am hoping that I will have my hands on Naked 3 by the beginning of next week!

I finally snagged one at the 2nd Street Beauty store on sale! Sorry my mani is a little old. I was out of town on a business trip and had done this while I was out in Florida last week. The photo shows 5 day wear. For a 5 day mani, the tip wear is pretty good!By the way, I took Zoya Remove+ (my fave remover) in a smaller travel bottle I got at Target, and it totally melted it into a jelly-like thing. Plus it leaked on to my other polishes and melted some of the other plastics. Good thing I had it double zip lock bagged or my entire luggage would have been trashed. Lesson learned. Get the bottles appropriate for polish remover! Here is what it did to my polish cap:I really love this polish! It is very work appropriate so I like that for important business meetings. It's very deceiving. It looks like a cream, but in certain lights or in the sun, you can see the tiny holographic microglitter. People who know me know I love glitter polish, so sometimes creams bore me. Now I know this has hidden sparkles, it makes me love it more. Here's a photo.

When I first heard about the OPI Hello Kitty collection last summer I sighed and thought, “Here come ALL THE PINKS!” If you know me, and by now I assume most of you do, you know pink is not my taste. That being said, the Hello Kitty universe is very much a celebration of all […]

Butter London : All Hail the Queen

by Janet @ Butter London – Twisted Knitter

This little gem of a color has been on my “must try” list for a while and not only did I finally find my camera card and card reader, this dropped into my life the same day. Kismet. Have I mentioned that Butter London is becoming my favorite brand? I love the colors, the names, […]

Zoya Myrta and China Glaze Riveting Comparison

by Michelle @ Bella Mama Style

I got the Zoya Pinterest mini trio that included Myrta recently, and I really wanted to try it out. It's been really sunny this weekend so I was in an orange mood. When I put the polish on, I realized it reminded me of another color I had, so I took a look in my stash box. I have China Glaze Riveting from their Hunger Games collection that I absolutely LOVE, and so I decided to do a swatch comparison. It's not quite a dupe though very close. Myrta is not as sparkly as Riveting, and it has more of a tangelo look to it. It's definitely a foily shimmer polish vs. a glitter polish. Take a look and see if you can spot the difference. Riveting is on the thumb in the comparison photo. It has more of a jelly look to it with an inner sparkle. Both are very pretty, but I think I prefer Riveting more. It just has this intensity about it that I really love. Myrta is also pretty, but it has more of a foil look.

Tonic Curio

by Cynthia @ Of Life and Lacquer

The weather here in SoCal is incredibly gloomy and humid today–a putrid combination. The last week has been super hot so I am hoping that we get a little break this week. It’s kind of hard to do your nails when it’s hot and humid because polish acts funky, but I did manage to do […]
