Rhea is a raspberry based crelly polish with golden shimmer and glitters of purple, white, pink, orange. This is sheer but it had good glitter distribution and it also had good consistency. It dries matte. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

I gotta say, I usually don’t like such sheer polishes but I really loved this one! What are your thoughts? le polish has since rebranded (which I love!) and now I must get more of her polishes!

Jesse’s Girl Fire Fly + Glee nail polishes swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonSo…you might have noticed that this published this morning and nothing was written! That’s because I was exhausted last night and forgot to check that this was ready to go before I turned off my computer. :/ Yesterday afternoon, I mowed most of my front yard, which took an hour and a half, and I was just beat to all get-out. Anyway, for realsies this time, let’s check out Jesse’s Girl Fire Fly and Glee.

Fire Fly is a golden flake polish that in some lights has a greenish tinge. This is meant to be a topper as it is quite sheer. It has a good consistency and dries satin. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Glee is a sea-green nail polish with golden shimmer. It is more green in real life. This is sheer and applies unevenly. It might stain as well! This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Okay, now that you’ve seen these for yourself, what are your thoughts? I picked these up awhile back from Jesse’s Girl on clearance, and it looks like there are still quite a few polishes on sale for $2!

Noodles Nail Polish Prototype 7 + Five Rose Gold Rings swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! Today I have two polishes from Noodles Nail Polish to show you: Prototype 7 and Five Rose Gold Rings (which I always want to say Five Nose Gold Rings for some reason). Awhile back Last year (already? already!), I had purchased some Noodles for a birthday exchange group & I was really impressed with the packaging, the speed of shipment, and the inclusion of a coupon code! So when I was looking for a new-to-me indie to try out, I really wanted to try NNP out for myself.

Prototype 7 is a white crelly with glitters of gold, turquoise, purple, and white. This had a good consistency and the glitters distributed evenly. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

Five Rose Gold Rings is a lavender crelly with rose gold and metallic gold glitters. Though this had a good consistency, the glitters stuck up and distributed unevenly. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

Though FRGR was a bit of a bugger to work with, I really love the color. Being a crelly sucker, I also loved Prototype 7! Basically, I would definitely order from Noodles Nail Polish again. Definitely give them a try if you haven’t already!

Don Deeva Varnish Acid Crush swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning all! I gotta tell you, I’m exhausted. Lately I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, taking care of my family and my household, trying to exercise daily and eat right and at the end of the day, I’m just dead. Which has been leaving little time for swatching or even wearing my pretty polishes! This brings me to a polish I did actually get to wear for a few days, Don Deeva Varnish Acid Crush, a white to reddish holographic thermal.

Makeup look with Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation Shell Ivory

Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone and Happy Sunday to you! There’s just something about spring/summer mornings when no one is awake and I get to sit with a hot fresh cup of coffee and ponder life. To tell the truth, it’s one of the few moments during the day when I have time to myself and so even if it’s early (and it usually is!), I treasure it.

CrowsToes Nail Color Pearls of Wisdom nail polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonYo ho ye land lubbers! I think I have pirate speak on the brain because of the name of this nail polish collection from CrowsToes Nail Color: the Pearls of Wisdom. Orrrr….I could just be weird. Yeah, that’s probably it. 😉 Anyway, this collection is a 6 piece collection with a bonus 7th polish when you buy the whole shebang.  It includes: Triple-Double Standard, 3 Sides to Every Story, Suck It Up Buttercup, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Glass House?…drop the rock, Projection Deflection & Misdirection; the bonus polish is called The Next time You think you’re perfect Try Walking on water (TNTYTYPTWOW). Each of these polishes (other than the bonus) are in a pearlescent base that has shiftiness and added glitter.

For my full 4-finger swatches, I’m showing each polish over black (sponged & painted – you’ll see). You’ll also get to see a macro collage of each polish by itself, over black, and over white. Overall, the formula on them was a little hard to get even over another color (hence why I sponged over black), but Madame Crow has tweaked the polishes’ formula to make sure they are at their absolute best!
