Nail Polish Review - KBShimmer Spring 2015 Collection

5 March 2015

Hi Everyone! It's been quiet on MLIT for the last few weeks but I am back and have a couple things lined up for all of you! It's March, which means it is almost Spring and that naturally means every nail polish brand has released a spring collection! But of course that is terrible for my wallet.

Today I have my picks from the new Spring 2015 Collection by KBShimmer... one of my favourite indie brands! The entire collection consists of 12 polishes but I didn't want three of the four holos in this collection. I still have 9 others though and continue reading for my thoughts on the collection! You can purchase any of these beautiful polishes from Harlow & Co, the only international stockist!

Overall Comments: I loved that this collection had so many glitter crellies... gorgeous! And they come in so many different shades of pastel and many of them even had tiny holo glitters! KBShimmer finally added a basic white to their line of creme polishes, many of which were released last year.

Stamping Plate Review - Hearts Nail Art

13 February 2015

Hi Everyone! I have not one but TWO nail art looks for you today featuring the Pueen 41 stamping plate. I kept the concept very simple... a pink base and with stamped designs in a white polish. Since it's February and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, I figured hearts were the best option to go with!

The base colour in both nail art looks is Pinking Out the Window from the new China Glaze Road Trip (Spring 2015) Collection. And remember I am giving away this entire collection right here!

I pulled up Pueen 41 and couldn't decide which particular image I liked so I ended up picking two! To stamp the designs I used my newly purchased Whiteout by Rica... let me tell you that it is an amazing white polish that stamps perfectly opaque! I would recommend investing in a bottle if you enjoy stamping. Both the Pueen stamping plates and the Rica polishes are available for purchase at Harlow & Co.

Nail Polish Review - KBShimmer Falling For Hue

12 February 2015

Hi Everyone! With Valentine's Day so close, it's fitting to sport a themed manicure this week. Now if cheesy nail art with hearts and kisses and lots of pink and red is not your "thing" then this is the perfect polish for you! It allows you to pay homage to the theme without shouting to the world that it's a Valentine's Day manicure. KBShimmer's Falling For Hue was released in 2014 as part of the Valentine's Day Trio. You can purchase this beauty and other KBShimmer polishes at Harlow & Co.

Nail Polish Review - OPI Fifty Shades of Grey Collection

9 February 2015

Hi everyone! Today, I have swatches of the new OPI collaboration collection... the Fifty Shades of Grey Collection! And the best part is that the entire collection comes in a mini set with all 6 polishes in this collection. That is such good value because we can own the entire collection without murdering our wallets.

Overall Comments: OMG! Grey polishes... so awesome! The creme polishes in this collection are just perfect as expected from OPI. They have a very pigmented and buttery formula and dry to a glossy finish. The silver foil is not that original and lately OPI has released too many silver foils... so it's not that exciting! And there's a pretty okay glitter polish in the mix too.

Nail Polish Review - China Glaze Road Trip (Spring 2015) Collection

2 February 2015

Hi everyone! Today, I have swatches of the entire China Glaze Road Trip Collection. I am really loving every single polish in this entire set. I am also really loving the new nail shape... they look so elegant! I think this is the first time I am swatching an entire collection that is bigger than 6 polishes. It's a lot of work but so worth it!

Remember that you can also have this collection by entering my Blog Birthday/Anniversary GIVE AWAY!

China Glaze Spring 2015 Collection

Overall Comments: Although most of these polishes required 3 coats, the formula was generally very good. They all dried to a glossy finish and some of them are amazing creme polishes! The collection as a whole is so pretty and it will be perfect for nail art! Four polishes in this collection have a beautiful rose gold micro shimmer that is very subtle and only shows itself in certain lighting conditions and angles. You wouldn't purchase these polishes for the shimmer since it's very subtle. They are more like an elevated creme with something special about them.
