My Picks from Dreamland Lacquer Valentine Power Ballads Collection!

*Purchased by me*

Ugh, Monday is here again! I hope I can make it better for you with some pretty pictures! Dreamland Lacquer offered a pre-order back in January for a lovely four piece Valentine's Day offering, the Power Ballads collection. How could I not snap up this gorgeous purple with hot pink shimmer? Dreamland Lacquer The Search Is Over is a red-purple jelly with the infamous Unicorn Pee pigment. This pink-gold shimmer packs real pow in this polish (holy alliteration Batman!), it is definitely not hidden shimmer by any means. The search is really over for the most stunning warm purple with shimmer!

This is three coats of The Search Is Over. I can still see some VNL in really bright lighting, but it's so beautiful I just don't even care. Application was excellent, this polish has a lovely consistency.

Dreamland Lacquer Alone is a deep red wine jelly with holo microglitter and iridescent microglitter. The iridescent glitter is really shifty, it presents a lot of different colors! I am wearing Alone as my full mani right now, and it's really pretty to look at in different lighting. The glitters look like burning embers under red glass or something, very cool.

This is two coats. Application was nice and easy. I used one layer of top coat and it was pretty smooth. If you wanted it to be 100% glossy and smooth, you might need a second layer of top coat. Dreamland Lacquers don't wear very long on me personally, I guess the base doesn't like my personal nail chemistry, but I know many people get great wear from them. I continue to buy them because they're beautiful!

These polishes are not currently available, but they will be available for purchase fairly soon! Check Dreamland Lacquer out on Facebook for information on when you can order these beauties.

Lynnderella Friday, Vol. 70!

 *Sent for review*

Happy Friday, we almost made it to the weekend! Today I have Lynnderella Dreamy McDreamy from the new Grey's Anatomy collection. Dreamy McDreamy is described as a "deep periwinkle blue shimmerella with subtle holographic nanoglitter accents and multishimmer". I am always a sucker for anything in the periwinkle lavender range and the holo glitter in this is beautiful! In some lighting, this looks deeper and more purple-y and in others a bit more pastel and dainty.

This is two easy coats. Application was smooth and easy. I used one layer of top coat and it was perfectly glossy.

Lynnderella Dreamy McDreamy is available in the Lynnderella eBay store. More beautiful Lynnderellas are available at lynnderella.com and the new Amazon store!

Happy Vapid Valentine's Day!!

*Purchased by me*

Happy Valentine's Day!! I don't typically do many Valentine's Day manicures, it's just not my favorite holiday. But I recently got Vapid Lacquer Hard Candy and happened to have these What's Up Nails heart vinyls, so I figured I should put them to good use! Vapid Hard Candy is a gorgeous hot pink metallic with lots of scattered holographic particles. The base color just glows with beautiful shimmer and then the holo particles on top are so pretty! 

The accent nail here is OPI Pink Friday with the What's Up Nails heart vinyls. They came out great except for the one on the bottom, that's kind of a mutated heart for some reason LOL. These vinyls are pretty easy to use, except I did have a hard time getting all of the solid hearts out of the stencil portion, even with tweezers.

This is three thin coats of Vapid Hard Candy, it's pretty opaque though, so two coats should be fine. I am loving this color!! The formula is great, very smooth and easy to apply. I used one layer of top coat and it is nice and glossy.

Vapid Hard Candy is currently sold out, but hopefully Krys will bring it back at some point. Keep an eye on http://vapid.mybigcommerce.com for restock dates. The heart vinyls are available on What's Up Nails. What's Up Nails also has a great selection of St. Patrick's Day nail art supplies, I have my eye on a few things!

Lynnderella Is Now on Amazon.com!!!

 *Sent for review*

There is big Lynnderella news on this Lynnderella Friday- Lynnderella has now been approved to sell on Amazon.com! To celebrate this new venture, Lynnderella created three Amazon-exclusive shades, and I have two of them for you today. The three shades are supposed to be like "'nail make up' and made to be used to match or highlight nails' natural shades". Lynnderella Glamazon Glow is a pretty seashell pink shimmer with holographic nanoglitter. It's soft, glowy, and delicate, almost with a pearly shimmer. It's a lovely flattering color on me! 

This is two coats and there is still some VNL, but I think that it goes with the soft delicate look of this polish. It might get a bit more opaque with a third coat, but probably not completely. It was easy to apply and not gritty at all, due to it being more of a shimmer than a glitter polish.

Lynnderella Honey Glamazon is described as a "Warm honey bronze shimmerella with multishimmer and gold holographic nanoglitter highlights". I am always a huge fan of golden bronze glitters, so I am completely in love with this one. It's honey caramel color offers a beautiful burnished glow for your nails. There wasn't much sun the day I swatched these, but this is spectacular in the sun and the holo nanoglitter really pops!

This was two super easy coats. Honey Glamazon is nicely opaque, almost a one-coater. It was great to work with and I had no issues at all.

The third shade in this collection is Glamazon, a beige taupe shimmer with holo nanoglitter. I will probably be purchasing that one, it's really gorgeous! These three shades are only available on Amazon and they are available as a set or individually. For more Lynnderella polish, visit Lynnderella.com or http://stores.ebay.com/lynnderella-lynnderella.

CrowsToes Indian Summer Raindrop Mani!

*Purchased by me*

Hi everyone, happy hump day! I wanted to share a mani I wore over the weekend, I really enjoyed wearing this one. I've been dying to try one of those raindrop manis with a matted multichrome polish and shiny raindrops, and I've also had CrowsToes Indian Summer on my list of polishes to wear for awhile. Indian Summer is a beautiful multichrome that shows colors ranging from a deep indigo, to rich purple, to a red-pink. It's a gorgeous polish and I was very entertained watching it shift in different lighting.

This is two coats of Indian Summer. It was easy to apply, I had a little balding when I went to apply the second coat, but I didn't wait for my first coat to dry completely. I would recommend waiting in between coats. I used OPI Matte Top Coat to mattify it and then dotted Vapid Lacquer QDTC on for the raindrops. I used an old bottle of the Vapid TC and it has thickened up a lot, so the raindrops definitely didn't come out perfectly. I would use a newer TC next time to make those perfect looking drops. Overall, I like the effect though, and it was a fun mani to wear.

CrowsToes Indian Summer will be available when CrowsToes re-opens on Friday, February 10. This is the original version of Indian Summer, but it will now be available in four different finishes- Original, Sparked (scattered holo), Linear Holo (self explanatory) and Bleached Holo (densely packed linear holo). I'll be ordering the Sparked version, it's so pretty with just a touch of holo!
