Deborah Lippmann- Bold Glitters

Deborah Lippmann- Bold Glitters 0

Back by very popular demand, Deborah Lippmann has re-introduced 2 fabulous glitter polishes to her permanent collection.

The shades initially came out in miniature bottles as a gift set sold exclusively at particular department stores, but due to high demand, and after swatching them, I too understand why they are back and here to stay.

The 2 new glitter shades are:

Just Dance: a sparkling bright aqua blue glitter.

Flash Dance: a sparkling glimmering purple with fuchsia glitter.

All swatches shown here are 2 coats & a top coat.  

I personally have never come across such Fantastic glitter polishes.  Usually glitter polishes are very sparse, and require multiple coats to build up the color for full opacity.  Not these! In 2 coats the color is completely solid! I have Just Dance on my toes right now, and I can't even begin to tell you the amount of compliments I have received in the last couple of days alone! (and I haven't even made it to a beach or pool yet ^-^).  I can't choose a favorite out of these two because I love them both so much, and recommend you pick them both up, for they're an excellent addition to any ones collection.

Zoya MagicalPixie 2.0 – Summer 2014 0

in addition to the "Tickled & Bubbly" collections, Zoya has also introduced a brand new line of their highly popular matte glitter  MagicalPixies for Summer 2014, deemed- "2.0". Although the collection is small, only 3 shades, it does pack quite a punch!

- Bar: a sandy nude beige with holographic silver glitter.

- Ginni: a Barbie pink with holographic silver glitter.

- Arlo: a purple/pink magenta with holographic silver glitter.

Like all MagicalPixies, these do not require a base or a top coat, and covered completely and beautifully in 2 coats.  My personal favorite of the 3 is Bar, it's beyond stunning!!

That’s It? Instant Nail Art Crystal Clear Nail Glitter/Shimmer Swatches

That’s It? Instant Nail Art Crystal Clear Nail Glitter/Shimmer Swatches 0

I am obsessing over these That’s It? opalescent nail glitters and shimmers. They take me back to my youth when everything seemed fairy like, fanciful, and purely magic.  These could each make an excellent shimmer top coat gel for any base color, especially a dark color; or the 3 could be mixed together to create a beautiful crystal opalescent iridescent color.

For the swatches shown here, I mixed equal parts nail glitter with clear gel. Each was 3 thin coats.

Shimmer Large #92241– has a lot of micro fine blue shimmer.

Opal Hex Large #92226– micro iridescent fine glitter particles, with a fine green glow tint to them.

Iridescent Hex Small #92219– small iridescent round glitter pieces.
