'No Pumpkin Way'


Girly Bits Cosmetics No Pumpkin Way October 2017 COTM Swatches and Review

No Pumpkin Way is described as a fiery burnt orange with a violet shimmer and brilliant gold holo microglitter. I really love the violet shimmer throughout the orange base. It really shines through in certain angles. Swatch shows 2 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there was no texture once top coat was applied.

Girly Bits Cosmetics November 2017 Polish Pickup


I have swatches of Girly Bits Cosmetics November 2017 Polish Pickup to share with you. November's Polish Pickup theme is Fandoms and I am just blown away at how many makers nailed their polishes. Girly Bits contribution took my breath away. I am so in love with bright blue polishes and this polish is, wait for it.....LEGENDARY! (You knew I had to do it) That's right the maker chose How I Met Your Mother as their inspiration. I am on a huge Friends binge at the moment, but as soon as I'm done, I'm jumping straight into HIMYM. I've seen quite a few episodes, but I never watched the latest seasons for some odd reason. Okay time to show off the goods!

'Wait For It'



Wait For It is described as a vibrant blue base that flashes violet, and magenta, teal, and green at the edges. It is filled with holo flakes, and sparks of blue and green holographic microglitter. I love love love this polish. I really wish I would have been able to capture the different flashes of shifts a little better, but just look at how bright and cheery this blue is. Bonus points to anyone who can name the character that this name is inspired by. Swatch shows 2 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there is a little bit of texture once top coat is applied. I recommend a nice thick gel like top coat or to just double up on your usual top coat.

Fair Maiden November 2017 Polish Pickup


I have swatches of Fair Maiden November 2017 Polish Pickup to share with you. November's Polish Pickup theme is Fandoms so imagine my delight when I saw that Fair Maiden was doing Pusheen! You know, that feisty grey cat you're always seeing on social media. I even found tons of Pusheen stuff at Hot Topic this past weekend. She's a very popular cat and who would have thought, she'd make such a stunning polish.

So Lazy, Can't Move is described as a light gray holo with color shifting shimmer magenta-copper-golden green, holo flake, iridescent chameleon glitter red-gold-green and multichrome iridescent flakes berry-gold-blue-violet. This polish is so gorgeous and delicate. As you can see from the description, there is a lot going on and it all works beautifully together. I was not able to capture even half of the beauty of this polish so take my word for it, it's amazing and you need it. Swatch shows 2 coats plus top coat.

Quixotic Polish November 2017 Polish Pickup


I have swatches of Quixotic Polish November 2017 Polish Pickup to share with you. November's Polish Pickup theme is Fandoms and the lovely Mary of Quixotic Polish chose The Office for her inspiration. I really need to get on The Office train because this is another one that I hear is amazing, but somehow I have never given it a chance. It has so many of my favorite actors so no clue why I haven't just started watching it. Anywho, black to the polish! It's stunning and you need it. I know I say that alot, but you just need to trust me.

'I am Beyonce, Always'



I am Beyonce, Always is described as a linear holo base with some larger scattered holo and pink/blue shifting microflakes. This polish so sparkly and gorgeous. I'm very upset with my camera for not capturing it's true beauty. The shifting flakes that are there in real life are so beautiful and while this one may be a soft holo, it's perfect in every way. Swatch shows 3 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there was no texture once top coat was applied. Side note; I have a feeling this would be a stunning topper too. I may have to try that if I find some extra time.

Dance Legend @ Color4Nails


I have swatches of 3 new Dance Legend shades @ Color4Nails to share with you. Color4Nails has brought 3 multichromes to the shop and they are to die for! These 3 are, dare I say, perfect for fall. As a matter of fact I see a mani in my future wearing all of these colors together. Orange, purple, and green just scream Halloween don't they? Let's get right into the swatches.

❤ Press Sample ❤

'Big Bang'



Big Bang is a crimson red/orange/gold multchrome with silver holo micro flakes throughout. I really enjoyed wearing this one and the shifts were not hard to capture like some multichromes are. The added holo micro flakes really make it gorgeous. Swatch shows 3 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there was no texture once top coat was applied.




'Comet Tail'



Comet Tail is a magenta/gold/green multichrome with silver holo micro flakes throughout. This is another beauty with the same powerful shift as the others. So so gorgeous. Swatch shows 3 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there was no texture once top coat was applied.




'Solar Eclipse'



Solar Eclipse is a green/purple/brown multichrome with silver holo micro flakes throughout. This was my favorite of the 3 with those unique color shifts. The purple is a nice surprise in certain angles, but capturing it on camera proved to be a bit challenging. Swatch shows 3 coats plus top coat. The formula applied smooth and even and there was no texture once top coat was applied.

Dance Legend @ Color4Nails is available now

Big Bang - $10

Lollipop Posse Lacquer November 2017 Polish Pickup


I have swatches of Lollipop Posse Lacquer November 2017 Polish Pickup to share with you. November's theme is Fandoms and all the makers are killing it! This polish right here, this one is special. Karen of Lollipop Posse Lacquer chose the movie Spirited Away for her inspiration. As you can see from the above collage, she absolutely nailed it.

'Spirit of the Kohaku River'



Spirit of the Kohaku River is described as a blue crelly base with duochrome shimmer that shifts between green and blue, scattered holographic pigment, and a smattering of pink/gold/bronze/green multichrome flakes. There is so much to love about this polish. I love that the maker went outside the box and chose an inspiration that isn't as popular as other movies may be. The bright blue base makes me oh so happy with that beautiful shifty shimmer. Those flakies OMG they are something special and show up so amazingly on the nail. I wasn't expecting them to pop as much as they do. The formula applied a bit thick and caused some trouble on my end, but I did speak with the maker and she will be thinning this out for the final batch. My swatch shows 3 coats plus top coat. I recommend doing 3 thin coats plus top coat to get the most depth out of this beauty. You will need a nice thick coat of top coat as this does have a little bit of texture after one regular coat of top coat.



Release Info:
Lollipop Posse Lacquer November 2017 Polish Pickup 
releases for pre order 11/03 - 11/06 at 11am Eastern. There is a cap on how many are available, but the maker assured me that the cap is a generous amount.

Polished For Days November 2017 Polish Pickup


Today I have swatches of Polished For Days November 2017 Polish Pickup to share with you. You all are in for an amazing treat as Polished For Days has officially joined Polish Pickup. I am so excited that they are doing November because the theme is Fandoms and I know there are going to be quite a few that have to have this just for the inspiration. I'll be honest with you, I've never seen Grey's Anatomy before. I know crazy right!? I didn't even know it was still on the air which is weird because I watch TV A LOT. Any who, PFD's inspiration comes from the hit show Grey's Anatomy. Let's get into the swatches.

40 Going On 26 is a gorgeous blue to purple multichrome with the perfect touch of silver holo flakes. This polish is inspired by Liza's sparkly dress.
