Ladybug Lacquer Fall Cremes Collection (partial)

*Press Sample*

Today I have part of the Ladybug Lacquer Fall Cremes collection to share with you. This collection consists of six cremes and one glitter topper. I have the topper and three of the cremes to show you! Let's get into the swatches!

First up is Chapped Lips. Kimberly (the maker of Ladybug Polish) describes Chapped Lips as "A sweet muted pink, inspired by brisk air, long walks, and my favorite chapstick." This is a gorgeous pink for Fall. All three of these cremes have an absolutely fantastic formula. I did two coats of each one, but you may be able to get away with one if you do thick enough coats. 

Up next is Granny's Pumpkin Pie, which she describes as "A great neutral burnt orange, reminiscent of pumpkin spice and pies straight from the oven." This was my surprise favorite creme out of the bunch. It is just perfect for Fall an really does remind me of Pumpkin Pie filling!!

The glitter topper in this collection is Jump, described as "A beautiful glitter topper filled with various caramel glitters and some micro iridescence. Putting it on feels like jumping into a pile of golden leaves." Again, just stunning. I used one coat of Jump over Granny's Pumpkin Pie. This has a great ratio of glitter to base and barely needed any manipulation to make the glitter even on the nail. This is my favorite polish combination for the Fall. I think they work perfectly together.

The last polish I have to show you today is Mulled Wine which Kimberly describes as "A deep glossy cranberry to go with your favorite bottle of wine." I feel like a broken record, but I think this is another color that is perfect for Fall. I did use topcoat on all of my swatches like I normally do, but this one was super glossy even without it. 

I think this is a do not miss collection!! If you love cremes, you need these. The formula is honestly one of the best I've used recently. You can check out the full collection here. Chapped Lips and Mulled Wine are currently sold out but she is working on getting them restocked in the next week or two. If you love Ladybug Lacquer, join the Facebook group here to keep up on all the news and restocks! I would love to hear what you think of these polishes in the comments below! What is your favorite Fall shade?

*These polishes were sent to me for review. My opinions are 100% honest and my own. Sending polish for review does not affect if I like a polish or not.*

FingerPaints Endless Wear Swatch and Review

I have a new to me brand to share with you today! I was recently at Sally Beauty Supply and while I was looking at their wall of polish the FingerPaints brand caught my eye. They had a promo running on the Endless Wear formula (buy two polishes and get a free top coat) so I thought I'd give it a try!

One of the shades that I picked up is It's All About The Frame. It is a gorgeous nude polish that is slightly holographic in direct light. The formula on this is absolutely perfect. It stayed right where I put it and wasn't too thick. I did one coat of the polish with one coat of the Endless Wear top coat. 

As for wear time - I got a chip the second day I had it on, so it didn't last any longer than any of the other polishes I have. However, I think this is the perfect nude for me so I can see myself using it again and again. I think it is very office friendly because in most lighting it just looks like a nude polish, but then when you go out into the sunlight you get that pretty holo.

I'd love to hear what you think of this polish in the comments below! Have you ever used Finger Paints or the Endless Wear line before? I'd love to hear which shades you recommend!

GlitterDaze - September Daze of the Month

Today I have a subscription box from GlitterDaze to share with you. This is the September Daze of the Month polish and extra gift. Each year the box theme is A Journey Through the Universe, so all of the polish names are space themed. The polishes released in the boxes are exclusive to the box -they will never be released on their own.

This month's polish is Hypervelocity Star. This is a medium grey base with holographic shimmer, blue chrome flakes and a copper to green shimmer. This is a beautiful polish and with that grey base, it is perfect for Fall or Winter. Excellent formula - two thin coats for opacity, and the polish stayed exactly where I put it on the nail. No running or pooling at the cuticles.

The extra gift with this month's polish is Pumpkin Crunch Cake scented Hand Fizzy Crumbles. This is a hand soak, but in crumble form so that you can use as much or as little as you'd like. You just sprinkle the crumbles in a bowl of warm water and then soak your nails or hands for 5-10 minutes. Pat dry and you're moisturized and ready to go! I'm not a huge pumpkin fan, so I am going to give this to someone that I know will love it.

I love the GlitterDaze bottles. So pretty!

I'm a big fan of this subscription service. Every polish I've gotten from GlitterDaze has had a great formula and there's so much going on in all of them. The Daze of the Month subscription is $15 per month and includes shipping. You can check out all of the information on the Daze of the Month subscription here. I would love to hear what you think of this polish and subscription box in the comments down below!

I have swatches to show you today of the Zoya NYFW Satins trio. I really like the Satin finish polishes that Zoya has come out with in the past, so I was excited to be able to get my hands on these as well. I think the colors are perfect for Fall and even transitioning into Winter.

Zoya Naked Manicure Review

Today I have a review of the Zoya Naked Manicure system to share with you. I was really intrigued when I first saw Zoya come out with this system.

Zoya Healthier is Happier Promo


…because healthier is happier!
NOW THRU 9/12/15

Trade in your brands for the smart choice today! 

Not only was Zoya Nail Polish the pioneer of the BIG3FREE and the BIG5FREE movement, we're technically 8-Free since our formulas have never included ethyl tosylamide, xylene or parabens. As the trusted brand among professionals and women who want cutting edge color with the safest formula available,  we want to give you the opportunity to trade in your unwanted brands for a healthier alternative - especially since many of you are concerned about the current formulas that you are using. Let's make it the standard that #HealthierIsHappier!


You guys, I love Zoya Nail Polish and am so happy they decided to run this promo now. If you haven't tried them, I highly, highly recommend Zoya. They're my most purchased and worn mainstream polish brand and I don't know that I've ever had a color I don't like from them. The formulas of their polishes are also always spot on. If you've never purchased from one of Zoya's exchange promos before it works like this - you purchase a minimum of six polishes using the code HAPPY, which will get you 50% off! Then you can send in polishes you don't want and Zoya will dispose of them properly. It works on the honor system, so you don't have to send in the same number of polishes you're purchasing or send any in at all. I think the important thing is to dispose of nail polish properly (don't just throw it in the trash), and if you don't know how to do it, Zoya will take care of it for you.

I will have my swatches of the Fall Focus and Flair collections coming up in the next few days for you. The Fall collections are included in this promo, so use this opportunity to pick up the colors you've been waiting to get! Let me know in the comments what you think of this promo or what you're planning to pick up during this great sale!

My Very First Indie Polish

Today I have another link up with some great nail bloggers! We're going to be telling you all about our first Indie polishes. All of the other "First Indie" blogs are linked below - make sure you check them out! If you don't know what an Indie polish is - it is a polish that is made by an independent maker, not a large corporation. I really enjoy Indie polishes because of the direct interaction with the makers, the unique polishes and the excellent customer service that typically comes with buying Indie.

Today I have the Cocktails Anyone? collection from Glisten & Glow to share with you. As soon as I saw the very first pictures of these polishes, I knew I had to have them. There are eight ultra holographic polishes in this collection. Let's take a look!

If you purchase today or tomorrow before 11:59pm EST (8/3-8/4) use code CAMPINGISFUN for 15% off your total purchase.

Gunpowder Lacquer Sunshine & Whiskey Collection Picks

Hi guys! Today I have a new Indie brand to share with you! I recently purchased two polishes from Gunpowder Lacquer during her initial launch a few weeks ago and I'm super impressed! First of all, she has the most adorable packaging. The polish came bubble wrapped in a little fabric bag with a cute little wooden tag attached to it. There was also a handwritten thank you, which I really appreciate. I was also excited to purchase from her because she's from Wisconsin, which is where I'm from. I don't think I've seen any other polish brands from here before this one.
