China Glaze Review, Pastel and Shades Of Nude. Spring 2017.

I was contacted by Nail Polish Canada recently and sent three great shades of China Glaze polish from the Spring 2017 line ups, Shades Of Nude Collection and Pastels Collection.
You can see all the shades from Shades Of Nude here, and Pastels here. My selections for review below were all creamy and delish and basically one coaters.

Casual Friday is a soft buttermilk yellow, and a lot less intense than photos I found online. I find my photo fairly accurately represents the softer pastel of this yellow. This is two coats, but took a bit more finess than the other two polishes due to a hint of streaking. Due to the soft and less intense nature of this yellow, it would work with almost any skin tone.

Bourgeois Beige was an easy formula that could be a one coater with easy application, however this is two for reiew purposes. This creamy beige hosts a hint of pinky warmth, but is the type of nude that works well on all skin types. This nude easily just stole top spot in my stash for nudes!

A Waltz In The Park is a soft lilac hue that leans more blue than link or purple. Finish wise, this was the best of the three for formula! Thick enough for a single coat with great coverage and no dragging. This colour was gorgeous on and I like it so much I created a quick acrylic floral look below and wore it to dust!

All in all the products I sampled from the China Glaze Spring 2017 releases were all very strong in formula and great colours I'd recomend to anyone. The yellow was a surprise favorite as a great yellow that also performs well during application is hard to find. I would say these are all need to haves for pastel and China Glaze junkies alike! 

Once again you can find the full Chine Glaze line up linked here at Nail Polish Canada.

Digital Dozens Does Birthdays, Pink!

Today's look is for Digital Dozen Does Birthday's! We are celebrating Amy Lee Platt's birthday today and her image selection was Pink...pink anything! I used a base of Orly Gel Effects Hot Shots, a hot pink/red gel polish and stamped it with a mix of Color Club and Essie pinks and sealed it with Seche. Not all the colours showed on the Orly, but it still created a neat snakeskin like effect. My image was from Lina Make Your Mark 03.

Born Pretty Store, Chrome Powder Review

Today's review is Gold Blue Purple Manicure Nail Art Glitter Chrome Pigment from Born Pretty Store linked here. I've never tried one of these pigments before, so it was a bit of trial and error to figure out how to stick the powder on. My first try was on damp nail polish, but it didn't really adhere properly so I pulled out my gel polish. I used one coat of nude polish on a gel base. Once cured, I did one coat of gel topcoat and cured it before rubbing the chrome into the inhibition layer with the foam applicator. This stepped was much easier than you'd think, and adhered perfectly! Once I was happy with the coverage, I added another layer of gel top coat.

This topper is almost magical in person and simply glows! If you want to try these out, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

Digital Dozen Does Paper, Poop Decal

Well, hmmm! Ever wondered if you could just use paper to make your own decals? I decided to give it a try because I wanted to incorporate more 'actual' paper into this weeks Digital Dozen Does Paper. I decided to print off some cute Poop emoji's in different sizes and the word Poop. My base for this one was Ruby White Tips Mon Cher and Ruby White Tips Blue Realm. As you can see, even with Seche Vite as my quick dry, the paper still popped up on the edges.

SO, a total fail, but totally worth the try! Don't forget to check out my girls in the Inlinkz below.

Born Pretty Store Review,

Today's review is a review of the Silicone Remover Wraps linked here from Born Pretty Store linked here. I've wanted to test these out forever, as I've always used foil and cotton balls to remove my glitters and Gel Polish. The problem with foil, is it cracks and is difficult to keep in place.

This product fixed all of that! To prepare to use these, I cut my cotton balls in half to use half in each tip.

Once I had them settled as needed, it was simple a matter of the usual ten minutes to wait. You are even able to do things while wearing them unlike foil!

One last note was a genius little detail they added on the inside. Little scrubbing nubs that allow you to rub any residual polish off on the way out with a few quick rubbing twists.
If you want to try these out, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

Digital Dozen Does Paper, Star Wrap

The inspiration for this one was some Sally Foster Wrapping Paper linked here. I love wrapping paper and this isn't my first time using it for inspiration. For this look I combined Ideas I borrowed from two of the paper patterns in the picture. My base is Nicole By OPI Back To Reality TV, and I stamped the dotting and freehand the stars on top.

That's all for today, but I've got a wild one tomorrow. Don't forget to check out my girls on Inlinkz below.
