Fair Maiden Polish Hello, Clarice and Rogue Lacquer It's On Like Donkey Kong Swatches

It's been a while since I've shared an mani that I've actually worn beyond swatching. It ends now! Full disclosure: I wore this particular mani a few months ago but it was so pretty I had to share it. Both polishes are from the Polish Pickup and I purchased them myself though I did actually get Fair Maiden Hello Clarice secondhand because I missed it and had regrets. The Rogue Lacquer was purchased directly from PPU.

Paint It Pretty Polish How To Train Your Dragon Toppers Collection Part One

Provided for review

I love a good nail polish topper, especially one that really transforms the base polish. Well, I am happy to report that Paint It Pretty Polish is releasing a new collection of magical and transformative toppers inspired by How To Train Your Dragon. There will be two parts to this release, the first five polishes launch tomorrow - Friday, May 24 - and will retail for $11 CAD each. 

I've shown all polishes in one coat over black (Girly Bits It's Definitely Him, a one coat black) and in one coat over one coat of Sally Hansen Army Candy (a sheer, milky peach shade). The formula on all polishes was smooth and the coverage was excellent in one coat. Really gorgeous toppers with an amazing shift!

BLUSH Lacquers Princessa 3 Year Anniversary Polish

Provided for review

Wow! Can you believe it's been three years since BLUSH Lacquers came onto the indie nail polish scene? Victoria came out swinging from the start with beautifully curated collections of shimmers and she's still going strong, having created some of my favorite polishes in my collection. In celebration of BLUSH Lacquers' 3 Year Anniversary, Victoria has created a classy and classic shade for our enjoyment.

Girly Bits May 2019 CoTM Smoke on the Water and Flake It Till You Make It!

Provided for review

Oh, hi! I'm just here working on the blog and belting out 80's power ballads (Celine Dion Power of Love, anyone?). Girly Bits Cosmetics has a new CoTM for May and I am so happy to see a topper as part of a CoTM duo again. I am predicting the return of toppers and glitter toppers in particular this year. Fingers crossed!
