  • Color Secrets | Scent of a Woman & While You Were Sleeping

    I’m just going to act like everything is normal and slip in this post 😛 I have two purple pretties to show you. Do the names ring any bells? If you’re a move buff they will! Color Secrets touts itself as a vegan polish free of phthalates, toulene and formaldehyde. They also use mica pigments instead of animal parts (that just sounds weird right?). First up is While You Were Sleeping.

    This is a very deep purple that shows much lighter in these photos.

    Both have good formulas and decent dry time. If you’re all about using vegan polish, this should be right up your alley. These are available at select Walgreen’s locations and at colorprosecrets.com

  • Embella Adorn | Purple Passion, Blood and Grace & Blue Ocean

    I attended a Shecky’s event a couple of weeks back and was very surprised to see a nail polish vendor! In all the Shecky’s events I’ve attended in the past couple of years, I had never seen a nail polish vendor. I had the pleasure of meeting Riane, the creator of Embella Adorn. The first thing that caught my attention were the fashion rings laid out on the table along with the polish. With the purchase of a polish you got to pick a ring of your choice. Interesting. Not only are your nails done but you have a cute accessory to make it pop.

    She had a special where you purchased 3/$40 and you got rings with each polish. If you wanna break down the cost it’s $6.66 for the polish and the rings. The polish alone is $20 but with each polish you purchase you get a ring. Got it? So I purchased three- Purple Passion, Blood and Grace and Blue Ocean.

    I must say I was really impressed with the formula on each and liked the colors. The bottles are rather small, 8ml. I like the fact that you can dress up your polish with a ring but I don’t know if the price point will win over indie lovers who can easily purchase polish at $6-$8 for a much larger 15ml bottle. Another thing I think would be a plus is to add the name of the polish on the bottle. It’s easy for one to forget what the name is should someone ask. Embella Adorn does standout for adding an accessory to a polish, which is something I have not seen before with an indie line.

  • Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer | The Once More with Feeling Collection | The Scoobies & The Vamps

    Zee lovely Julie, creator of Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, sent me some jaw dropping polishes to review. If you are a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan this is right up your alley. The Once More with Feeling Collection is broken up into three distinct categories; the gang (aka the Scoobies), the demons and the vampires. I’ll be showing you two from the Scoobies and the two from the Vamps.
    We Saved the World, I Say We Party, is a pale pink linear holo based on the ass kicking slayer of them all, Buffy Summers.

    Tea is Soothing. I Wish to be Tense. is a baby blue linear holo based on Rupert Giles, the Watcher.
    Don’t Worry. I Don’t Bite. is a charcoal linear holo and based on Angel, the vampire with a soul.

    Out. For. A. Walk…BITCH. is a deep red holo based on William the Bloody, the tortured vampire.
    How can you NOT love any of these?! All of the polishes had nice consistency but the only one that was a touch thick was I Don’t Bite. They all dried fast with a semi matte finish and removal was easy. All but Out For A Walk….Bitch were semi-sheer on first coat. Out For A Walk was a one coater! Tea is Soothing has the most gorgeous light blue I’ve ever seen and holo no less! This is a blue you have to see in person. If you love holo’s, get these. If you love Buffy The Vampire Slayer, get these. All are $10/ea.
