Glam and Glits Acrylic

Glam and Glits Acrylic 0

I hope everyone's had a great week, I know I sure have.

Today I am very excited to share with you some really cool Acrylic powders from Glam and Glits. Some of the colors are mood/color changing, and others are traditional solid colors. I've got a few from both to share with you all.

Introducing Glam and Glits Mood Effect Acrylic Collection. The first and only mood changing acrylic powder in the world! These 48 playful shades change color based on your body temperature, your mood, the heat of your cup of coffee, or even while you're holding an ice cold smoothie! Be in the mood now and get ready to shift shades right at your fingertips!Size: 1 oz jars.  Made in USA.  INGREDIENTS: Poly (ethyl mathacrylate), Poly (methycrylate), Dibenzoyl Peroxide & Pigments." They sell for $13 each.

From the color changing Mood Effect Collection I've got:

Aftermath: a jet black with white glitter specks, that becomes dark grey when warm. [In the aftermath you have to deal with your choices; luckily this color was your first choice! Watch as silver speckled forest green transitions from dark to light with just the warmth from your hands.]

Consequence: an eggplant purple with white glitter specks, that becomes like a whitish light pink when warm. [When the consequences are this good there’s no reason to stop and think. Your reward is watching blue glitter-flecked purple transitions to nearly white with just the warmth from your hands.]

Side Effect: a turquoise aqua, that becomes a whitish light lavender when warm. [Finally, something with positive side effects. No need to call your doctor if cream teal transitions to the lightest shade of purple with just the warmth from your hands.]

"Dare to get NAKED with Glam and Glits new acrylic collection, NAKED COLOR!  This long-awaited collection consist of 48 new colors that range from delicate champagne, shimmery nudes to deep red matte with micro shimmer are just to name a few. Each shade leaves a smooth, even finish and lasting color with our advanced acrylic formula that is blended with ultra fine pigments. Never get bored again and have a world of exquisite possibilities right at your client’s fingertips! Size: 1 oz jars, Made in USA.  INGREDIENTS: Poly (ethyl mathacrylate), Poly (methycrylate), Dibenzoyl Peroxide & Pigments," according to the website.  They sell for $10 each. 

From the more traditional solid colors, Naked Color Acrylic Collection I've got:

Make Wave: a light dove gray cream with slight shimmer in it.

Pout: a bright bold hot Barbie pink cream.

Coffee Break: a shimmering espresso chocolate brown

(all swatches are taken outdoors in natural light, and are topped with a polish high gloss top coat)

I had a lot of fun playing around with these acrylic powders, especially the mood effects ones. I have never seen color changing acrylic before on the market.  Polish, gel polish, yes, but never acrylic.  I must say I was very impressed with the quality.  I also really love the fact that the powders can be used with Any brand's monomer.  That is incredible!!  

If you do a lot of work with acrylic, give Glam and Glits a try.

INM Says “Cheese” @ NailPro Pasadena 2014 !!

INM Says “Cheese” @ NailPro Pasadena 2014 !! 0

I would have to say the biggest draw and commotion at this years NailPro “nails only” show in Pasadena was not the presence of multi talented singer/actress Anna Kendrick, but INM’s introduction of their Photobooth! Everyone from show regulars, top personalities- Katie Cazorla (the Painted Nail), to top competitors- Lorena Marquez & Chris Mans, to brand reps- Mami Griffin (Sha-Nail) & Morgan Haile (Morgan Taylor Lacquer) all stopped by INM‘s newest addition to their booth to flash their pearly whites along with some fun goofy props.

Not only was INM’s photobooth a huge draw, but so were the amazing nail demos they performed by top industry leader Lorena Marquez, and new competing protegee Chris Mans.

Also at NailPro Pasadena, was a challenge for the Guinness Book of World Records for fastest pink & white nails ever in history, to perform a full set in under 10 minutes- a truly remarkable feat!

In case you missed out on all the great deals on INM’s wonderful products, you can still check them out on their website: http://inmnails.com/
