Glisten & Glow LE Easter Duo

Today I have a quick review of the Glisten & Glow Limited Edition Easter Duo to show you. This LE duo consists of one polish and one cuticle oil.

The cuticle oil is in the scent Just Hatched. This is a really nice sized (15ml) cuticle oil. I am not a scent expert, but I would say this is a great Spring scent. I feel like it has some fruity and sweet qualities to it. I don't smell anything floral. It is nice and light - not overpowering. I have to say I think I prefer cuticle oil in the pen applicator as opposed to the polish bottle. I used too much and it didn't fully soak in. 

For Peeps Sake is a medium pink holographic polish. The formula on this was excellent. This is two coats with top coat, but the polish just flowed perfectly on the nail. I really like this polish. I think the color is great for this time of year. These pictures are in indirect light and the holo still shows up nicely. 

I really like this duo. It is currently available on Glisten & Glow's webiste here. It is limited edition, so if you're interested I'd pick it up! :0) I'd love to hear what you think of it in the comments below!

Daily Hues Hawks and Sinful Colors Shamrockin'

Today I have another manicure that could be considered a St. Patrick's Day look, but I think of it as more of a Spring look. I used Daily Hues Nail Lacquer Hawks and Sinful Colors Shamrockin'.

St. Patrick's Day Mani Featuring DIFFERENT dimension

Today I have another simple St. Patrick's Day manicure to show you. I used all DIFFERENT dimension polishes to create this look.

To get this look I used two coats of Luck & Leprechauns on my middle and ring fingers. Luck & Leprechauns is a full coverage green and gold holographic microglitter with multichrome flakies and a bit of a magenta shimmer in it. Gorgeous and perfect for today. The formula was easy to work with and not too thick or thin. I think Missi from DD comes up with some fantastic glitter polishes. Luck & Leprechauns is available here

On the rest of my fingers I used an eye shadow sponge applicator to sponge a gradient using Treemendous (light green) and Note to Elf (dark green). These are both from the DIFFERENT dimension Holiday collection and are beautiful holographic polishes. Treemendous also has green flakies in it. Note to Elf is sold out, but you can find Tremendous here. I only had to go over the sponging once and I did not use a base color before sponging. Using the eye shadow applicator gave me better control and less clean up than using a make up sponge. Also, since my nail beds are smaller, it was easier for me to get the polish where I wanted it to go, instead of all over my finger. :0) 

A thumb picture two days in a row? Woah. ;0)

I like how these three polishes work together. I've never had a problem with the formula of any DIFFERENT dimension polish I've purchased. I'd love to hear what you think of this look. Let me know in the comments below!

Zoya Satin Topcoat

Today I have a quick post for you using the Zoya Satin Topcoat. This isn't available on the Zoya website yet, I received it as a gift with purchase at Ulta last week. (I actually went twice to take advantage of the promo, so be on the look out for a giveaway coming soon!) The promotion Ulta had running at the time was that if you purchased two Zoya polishes, you received this set of a Satin Topcoat and a Satin Cream lipstick free. How could I resist? :0)

ellagee The Artist Collection Picks

Today I have my picks from the ellagee The Artist Collection to show you. This collection features five polishes inspired by Prince. I have two of the polishes, one is a microglitter and one is a holo.

First up is The Polish Formerly Known As Prince. This is a clear based polish with purple metallic and holo microglitter with some gold holographic microglitter in it as well. This is two coats of TPFKAP on it's own. It looked full coverage in real life, even though it looks like it isn't in the pictures. It was easy to work with and I got plenty of glitter on the brush without having to fish.

The other polish I picked up from this collection is The Purple One. This is a royal purple holographic polish with gold shimmer. This polish was super easy to work with. It had a great formula and went on smooth. This is two coats of The Purple One.

I really like both of these polishes. If I had to pick one, it would be The Purple One. It had such an excellent formula and the color is amazing! I also will be using ellagee's base and top coat in the upcoming weeks. I used them with these polishes and so far I am very impressed. I will do a post in a few weeks to let you know what I think, after I've had some time to test them out. The Artist Collection is available here. I'd love to hear what you think of these polishes and which one is your favorite in the comments down below!
