Introducing Crystal Nails

Introducing Crystal Nails 0

I am so excited to introduce my readers to Crystal Nails.  A revolutionary company that's changing the way we see and use gels! They have many innovative lines, that feature new and different technology that's never been seen before in the US! Some of the various lines I'll be reviewing of theirs include: Metallic finish, Magnet, 1 Step color, and Thermo Color Change.

ChroMe Crystalac- Mirrored Metallic!

12 new shades that offer an irresistible metal metallic like sheen that I personally have seen unparalleled to any other product out their on the market, other that foils.

The Colors I reviewed here include:

Silver, Gold, and Milk Pink.  

I found the finish to be irresistible on these shades.  Like a Mylar balloon, you really have to see it in person to get the full effect. 

Tiger Eye Crystalac!

12 gel polish colors that when you hold the magnet up to it, before final curing, a magnetized "tiger eye" effect is created, that shifts as one moves their hand.

The shade I tried out was TIG9, a deep dark beautiful purple. 

 1 Step Color!

Offered in many hues, this is probably hands down the quickest way to perform a gel manicure on a client.  Cures for 2 minutes in UV or 30-60 seconds in an LED light, this one stop shop gives you beautiful coverage and doesn't require a base or top coat. 

The color I reviewed here is OS46, a beautifully sparkling brilliant shade of glittery raspberry.

Chameleon Thermo Gels!

The last style of gel I tried from Crystal Nails was their Chameleon Thermo Gels, which change in color based on heat. 

The color I tried here was OS21, which starts off neutral as a warm coral red,  and shifts to a lighter bright shade of coral. 

All in all I am very pleased and impressed with the variety and offerings at Crystal Nails.  In order to gain hold of this vast nail industry, it's truly important to branch out and think outside of the box, and I believe Crystal Nails has done an excellent job in doing just that.

AZATURE- the Black Diamond Nail Lacquer

AZATURE- the Black Diamond Nail Lacquer 0

I am very proud and excited to present the world’s first and only “black diamond” polish to all of my readers. AZATURE is a family owned and operated diamond jewelry business, so these folks definitely know their stuff when it comes to stones.  They’ve gotten into the polish market and are quickly proving they know what their doing in the nail sphere as well.

The line is the more affordable sister to their $1 million polish I have previously posted.  These retail for $25 each, and in every single bottle is a real black diamond.  As if that weren’t amazing enough, each color has it’s own special story printed on the back of the bottles.

Azature Black: a dark grey jelly base with black and silver glitter specks. Required 3 coats for good dark coverage.  (The black diamond is the ultimate fine jewel. its combination of beauty, mystery, and sophistication make it a timeless luxury).

Azature Champagne: a micro fine orange, bronze, copper, and yellow gold glitters. (This shade is inspired by the sparkle of champagne diamonds. Subtle yet distinct, the gems are as celebratory as a glass of bubbly).

Azature Green: a rich sparkling emerald green.  Required 3 coats to fully cover. (This shade is inspired by the green diamond, one of history’s most coveted gems, with astonishing depth and unmatched beauty).

Azature Blue: a gorgeous sparkling royal blue.  Probably my most favorite out of this collection. (This shade is inspired by the blue diamond’s intensely hued shade, which symbolizes balance and inner strength).

Azature Red: a sparkling shimmering micro fine red glitter. (The shade is inspired by the red diamond, the worlds rarest diamond of all. Flaunt your power and make a bold, fearless statement with this extravagant luxury in a classic shade).

Azature Canary: a shiny yellow fine glitter.  Almost looks like 24kt gold.  Also one of my favorites in this collection, and is presently on my toes 🙂 (This shade is inspired by the canary diamond: a daring, unique choice that radiates glamour, light, and joy).

Azature Pink: a shimmering micro fine pale pink glitter. (This shade is inspired by the flirtatious and youthful pink diamond, this classically feminine shade offers the perfect balance of softness and sophistication).

Unless mentioned otherwise, all swatches shown above were 2 coats.
