MOD Lacquer Swatch and Review

Hey ladies... I'm here with another MOD Lacquer Swatch and Review. Let me just tell you right from the beginning. These are AMAZING!! I'm not surprised though. Jennifer has her formula down to a tee. She knows exactly what she is doing. The shine you get from them in the light is mesmerizing, all I did was sit and stare at my nails because they were so beautiful. Lol My husband was looking at me like I was crazy or something,  I want one of every color she has. There are well worth it to have such beauty on your nails. These polishes have no pulling, streaking or flooding of he cuticles. They are honestly perfect in every way.
The 1st one up is Aerial Phenomenon and she is my favorite of the 3 I took pictures in regular light and and flash. Isn't she a beauty. It is a pink linear holographic, this polish is so well pigmented with a strong rainbow holographic effect. I applied 2 coats here and topped off with Seche Vite. It comes in a 12ml bottle for only $10.00 and worth every penny!



Our 2nd is Interstellar Artifact and is this beautiful gold linear holographic this also is well pigmented with the strong rainbow effect. This polish also stamps well for all you stampers out there. As you can see it doesn't matter what type of light you are in the linear effect is amazing. I applied 2 coats here and topped off with Seche Vite. This come in a 12 ml bottle for $10.00



And last but not least we have High Strangeness a beautiful Light Purple-violet with linear holographic. This one as the other 2 are highly pigmented with the strong holographic effects. This polish came in real close to being my favorite. As you can see it doesn't matter what light it is in to see the beautiful linear effect. There is nothing like it. I applied 2 coats and topped if off with Seche Vite. This is also sold in a 12 ml bottle for $10.00



I am being 100% honest when I say these are by far the best linear holo's I have seen. The formula is spot on all her polishes I have tried. You can tell she puts hard work and love into her polishes, and it shows when you apply them.
Jennifer hand make all her polishes and they are 3 free. The base that she uses has been tested over time to make sure there are little to no settling of her glitters. All her ingredients are listed on her page. To find Jennifer you don;t have to look far. You can find her at www.facebook.com/modlacquer
https://www.etsy.com/shop/ModLacquer
Stop by favorite her page and shop around. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Born Pretty Store Matte Surface Oil Polish Review

Hey Ladies I have a quick review on Born Pretty Store Matte Surface Oil Polish Review. I have to say this polish is pretty good, dries fast to a matte finish. I did a negative space stamping with plate Pueen Encore 4B then a coat of Seche Vite so the stamping would not smear and a coat of BPS Super Matte on top that. Here is the completed look. I love it. I definitely will be using this product in the future for other Matte looks and for 3.49 and free world wide shipping I mean what a deal.

Daphine Polish Swatch and Review

Hey ladies I have another Swatch and Review for you this time from Daphine Polish. Joanne was nice enough to send me the complete His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman collection.  I myself am not to much of a reader but after seeing this collection and reading pieces from the book I just may have to.

First off here is a little info on his collection.
His Dark Materials Collection
The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman includes the books The Golden Compass (published as Northern Lights in the UK), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. At the young age of ten, I first picked up The Golden Compass at summer camp (yes, I was the kid who read at summer camp!) on the advice of a boy I liked. This book, and its sequels, were my first foray into the world of fantasy. I credit them for laying the foundation of a love of science fiction and fantasy that is still strong today. To quickly summarize these books, they tell the coming-of-age adventures of Lyra Belacqua, an ordinary orphan from Oxford who turns out to be the most important person in not just her universe, but in all universes. This collection mainly draws on The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife for inspiration

Let's jump right into this with our Polishes. Now remember there are 8 do this may be a little long. But once you see the collection it will all be worth it.

So the 1st one we have is Dust it is a light Yellow-Gold shimmer with a touch of scattered holo-graphic effect. I don't normally like yellows on me but this polish is beautiful. It has just enough shimmer with out going over board for us Creme Polish wearer's. It took 3 thick coats to be opaque. It went on nice and smooth with no streaking.


 Here is a little piece of the book about Dust.

“‘What is this Dust?’
‘It comes from the sky. Some say it has always been there, some say it is newly falling. What is certain is that when people become aware of it, a great fear comes over them, and they’ll top at nothing to discover what it is.’” The Golden Compass.

The 2nd Polish is Gyptian Longboat it is a dusty Purple with Gold and Green micro flake shimmers. This is beautiful purple. It was opaque in 3 coats and went on smoothly with no streaking.

Here is  a little about Gyptian Longboat.

Like sun and moss glistening in murky waters. It is inspired by Ma Costa, the leader of a Gyptian family, who was Lyra’s nurse as an infant. She and other gypitans have been  secretly watching out for Lyra on behalf of the king of the gyptians, John Faa. The gyptians are a nomadic people,  living in longboats. They call the Fens of East Anglia home, but travel around Brytain through canals and rivers, making their livelihoods through trade.

“In the long narrow cabin, by the light of a lantern on a hook, she saw a stout powerful woman with gray hair, sitting at a table with a paper.” The Golden Compass

Our 3rd polish is Silvertongue and it is Silver-Blue polish with scattered holo is inspired by Lyra Belacqua. This is a beautiful Silver polish that was opaque in 3 coats with little streaking but by the 3rd coat it was fine.



Lyra Silvertongue by Iorek Byrnison. As The Golden Compass opens we meet Lyra, a somewhat uncouth girl raised at Jordan College in Oxford by scholars and servants, allowed to run wild in the streets and on the rooftops. She is brave and full of fight, willing to go off into the wild North to save her friend Roger from the Gobblers.

“‘You tricked Lofur Raknison?’
‘Yes. I made him agree that he’d fight you instead of just killing you straight off like an outcast, and the winner would be king of the bears. I had to do that because—’
‘Belacqua? No. You are Lyra Silvertongue,"he said.” The Golden Compass

Our 4th polish is Sky Armor
A sky blue shimmering base with blue micro-flakes and is inspired by Lorek Byrnison. This is my favorite of the 8 colors it is beautiful. Although the formula was a little wonky. It did streak but by the 3rd coat it worked it' self out. Topped it with a top coat and wore it for a few days :)


The armored bear. First encountered in Trollesund, Lyra helps him recover his armor, which was taken from him by the people of the town. Lorek pledges himself to Lyra’s cause and becomes her champion. Lyra’s wits help Iorek defeat the usurper king Iofur Raknison and become king of the bears.


“‘My armor is made of sky iron, made for me. A bear’s armor is his soul, just as your dæmon is your soul. You might as well take him away’ — indicating Pantalaimon — ‘and replace him with a doll full of sawdust. That is the difference.” The Golde

The 5th polish is Cloud-Pine A Taupe Light Brown shimmer with Blue, Green, and Purple iridescent glitters. Inspired by Serafina Pekkala, the queen of the witch clan. This is a Pretty Light brown but was my least favorite of the collection. I just do not like Light browns but you it may be a hit! It was opaque in 3 coats with very little streaking but even out but the 3rd coat.



Cloud pine is a type of magical tree used by witches to fly. Once the lover of Gyptian Farder Coram, Serafina Pekkala allies her clan with the gyptians on their mission to rescue the children from Bolvangar. She rescues Lyra and Roger from the fight at Bolvangar and carries them to safety in Lee Scoresby’s balloon.

“Up! Into midair Lyra and Roger were caught and swept, and found themselves clinging with weakening fingers to a cloud-pine branch, where a young witch was sitting tense with balanced grace…” The Golden Compass

We are now on our 6th polish and it is Texas Aeronaut it is a Red-leaning Orange with strong Gold micro-flake shimmer, inspired by Lee Scoresby. It is a really pretty Orange polish with just enough shimmer. Again I am a Creme girl. Lol But I did like this polish it was opaque in 3 coats with no streaking. On my accent finger I did a gold glitter and topped it with top coat and wore it for a few days :)



A New Dane from the country of Texas, Lee Scoresby is an aeronaut hired by the gyptians in Trollesund on their expedition to the North to rescue the children kidnapped by the Gobblers. He becomes fiercely loyal to Lyra, continuing in her cause even after they are separated on Svalbard.

“[Lyra] looked at this newcomer with surprise. He was a tall, lean man with a thin black moustache and narrow blue eyes, and a perpetual expression of distant and sardonic amusement. She felt strongly about him at once, but she wasn’t sure whether it was liking she felt, or dislike. His dæmon was a shabby hare as thin and tough-looking as he was.” The Golden Compass

“‘Because, Dr. Grumman, ...you be aware of this: I love that little child like a daughter. If I’d had a child of my own, I couldn’t love her more. And if you break that oath, whatever remains of me will pursue whatever remains of you, and you’ll spend the rest of eternity wishing you never existed. That’s how important that oath is.’” The Subtle Knife
 
The 7th polish is called Knife Bearer it is a A Blackened Olive Green jelly with strong Red shimmer and a touch of scattered holographic effect inspired by Will Parry. This is my 2nd fave in this collection. I love the way it looked with my skin tone and I have to admit I love the shimmer in it. I wore this for like 4 days and didn't want to take it off. I did not have any tip wear but I do wear acrylics. This actually may be tied for being my fave of the collection. Lol



He is first introduced in the second book of the trilogy, The Subtle Knife, a quiet and serious twelve year old boy who has learned over the years how to make himself unnoticeable in order to take care of his mentally ill mother. He discovers a window into another world, Cittàgazze’s world, and there meets Lyra and  becomes the bearer of the subtle knife.

“‘Now,’ said Giacomo Paradisi, ‘here you are, take the knife, it is yours.’
‘I don’t want it,’ said Will. ‘I don’t want anything to do with it.’
‘You haven’t got the choice,’ said the old man. ‘You are the bearer now.’” The Subtle Knife

“...as he picked it up he felt that it was light in his hand and strong and beautifully balanced, and that the blade was not dull after all. In fact, a swirl of cloudy colors seemed to live just under the surface of the metal: bruised purples, sea blues, earth browns, cloud grays, the deep green under heavy-foliaged trees, the clustering shades at the mouth of a tomb as evening falls over a deserted graveyard….If there was such a thing as shadow-colored, it was the blade of the subtle knife.” The Subtle Knife

And out last of the 8 polishes is a beautiful glitter topper called Cittàgazze and is Loosely translated from Italian, Cittàgazze means “City of the Magpies.” This glitter topper in a clear base is inspired by the city of Cittàgazze in The Subtle Knife and the colors of the Italian Mediterranean. With more than 15 different colors, it sparkles enough to attract any glitter-loving magpie! This is an amazing topper!! Pics are 2 coats topped over Silvertongue. I hope you like it as much as I do.



“...these were tall palms, and they were growing, like the trees in Oxford, in a row along the grass. But this was the center of a broad boulevard, and at the side of the boulevard was a line of cafes and small shops, all brightly lit, all open, and all utterly silent and empty beneath a sky thick with stars. The hot night was laden with the scent of flowers and with the salt smell of the sea.” The Subtle Knife


Over all this is a great collection to have. All Daphine Polishes are 3 free and handmade.
They are affordable at 10.00 for a 15ml or 72.00 for the 8 piece collection.
You can contact Joanne at the following places

MOD Lacquer Swatch and Review & Giveaway (US ONLY)

Well today ladies as you can see I'm coming to you with a great review from MOD Lacquer. She was nice enough to send me this polishes for to try and give my opinion. Well what I can say is I LOVE them. She really has her formula down pack. I did not have a problem applying any of them. They all went on nice and smooth an there was no fishing for glitter. Which is great because honestly I do not like fishing for glitter!!

So the 1st polish we will start with is Dreamland. I love this polish it is a beautiful Lavender cream polish that has tiny rainbow sparkles from the micro holographic glitter. You can not go wrong with this polish. It applied smoothly with no streaking. I applied 2 coats and it was fully opaque I stamped over it with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep to finish the look. Paired along with Dreamland I wore Blackberry Creme which is Light Lavender base with white, light purple and dark purple small and medium hex glitters. It applied smoothly and opaque in 2 coats.



So next we shall talk about Revenant. I loved this polish so much I wore it twice. It applied smoothly with no streaking and completely opaque in 2 coats. This polish is a bright blue duo chrome that shifts from blue to purple with micro holo glitter. I mean can you say WOW!! I did jazz it up a bit with Super Nails-Solar Glass foil glitter to finish the look.
Moving on to Pink Tart. I love this, it's a creamy light pink base with small pink and white glitter. It was opaque in 2 coats and I wore it along with OPI Hey Bay and of course I had to add some rhinestones to finish the look.

Next we have Minty Kiss a beautiful creamy light green base with green and white glitter. Again applied opaque in 2 coats. I wore this along with China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint and stamped some pretty green leaves to finish it up. Hope you like it! I did!!
And the last polish is Blueberry Bliss. It's so beautiful and I think my second fave out of the bunch. It applied easily and opaque in 2 coats. It is a creamy light blue base with white and blue glitter through out. I wore it with Klean Color Blue and stamped some pretty roses to complete the look.

Shimmer Polish Review and Giveaway

Hey ladies how are we doing this fine beautiful day? Well as for me I am at work where I always am. Lol This 6 days a week 9 hours a day has to give at some point, I have only been doing it for over a year now :)
Well It's my job and I have to do what I have to do right. Don't we all. I need money to buy more polish. Lol
So why I am really here is to talk to you about Shimmer Polish https://www.facebook.com/ShimmerPolish
I was sent 5 bottles to try and review. I was so surprised when I opened the box and these pretties were staring up at me. I bet you could see the glisten in my eye's shinning off of them. These polishes are 100% Glitter Bombs. There is no fishing for glitter is these babies. So without any further a do let's interduce you to Bella, Karen, Liana, Jasmine and Sarah


As you can see they are jammed packed full of glitter and most applied opaque in 2 coats. The 1st I'm going to show you is Karen. She sparkles and shines in the sun so bright I think you could blind someone. Lol
It has Glitter squares, circles, hexes, dots, it's a shimmer holographic with Silver, Lavender, Pink, Orchid, Nail Lacquer. Like I said earlier it was completely opaque in 2 coats. I'm glad I have this added to my collection.


Our next young lady is Sarah is she not so pretty? Again 2 coats to be opaque. I just can't say it enough about how shiny and pretty they are. This has Glitter squares, circles, hexes, dots,  it's holographic and has shimmer Silver, Pearl, Baby blue, Grey nail lacquer, I wore this over Orly Macabre Masquerade to give it that extra touch of color.


Moving right along to Liana a beautiful polish that has Glitter squares, circles, hexes, dots, it is shimmer holographic that has, Blue, Navy, Black, Royal Blue Nail lacquer. On my accent finger I wore it over China Glaze Of Corase! I added some rhinestones to add more to the bling.



Now we have Jasmine which was opaque in 2 coats just as the others. Jasmine has Glitter squares, circles, hexes, dots, it is a shimmer holographic nail polish with Silver, Aquamarine, sea foam green, light blue green nail lacquer. Again added a few rhinestones to finish the look.



And last but not least is Bella she is a beautiful Glitter polish with glitter squares, circles, hexes, dots,it's a shimmer holographic burgundy and brown with hints of red, silver and gold micro glitter nail lacquer. This one was opaque in 2 to 3 coats and was harder to work with. It dries very quickly and makes applying it a little harder.
I will insert more pics of Bella I just don't have my phone on me at the moment.
Over all I really loved this polishes except for Bella which is the one I thought I would love the most. I think it was issues with the application and I tried it several times. It just got thick and goopy and had to add thinner to it a few times. I don't know maybe I just had a bad batch. But again I am overall VERY pleased with the others. They are total Glitter Bombs so if you like glitter these polishes are defiantly for you.
I apologize for the pictures especially for Bella I am working on getting a better lens. My pictures do not even come close to other bloggers :(
Well this is my review for Shimmer Polish. Please feel free to comment below but remember if you don't have anything nice to say by all means don't say anything at all. Much Love Jen <3
