Ellagee Bling in the New Year Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Yep yep!! Another post for you today!!

This post is long overdue and I sincerely apologize to everyone, especially Laura!!

Ellagee recently released 3 collections and I have the Bling in the New Year collection to share with you today! Hard to believe the end of the year is a month away!!

Bling in the New Year is a 6-piece collection of sheer shimmers with a dusting of holo  micro glitters and they are absolutely beeeeautiful!! I was drooling the entire several times I swatched these! These can be worn alone or layered on top of another color, I chose to show these on their own. Each bottle also comes with a removable iridescent crystal ring. This is a photo heavy post, so check out the rest of the review after the jump!

Pahlish Sexy Fish Vampires

Purchased By Me

Happy Sunday!! I'm finally able (wanting?) to sit down, edit photos, and do some blogging!! Woohoo!!

If you've read my blog for a while, then you know I'm a huge Doctor Who fan. Seriously.. as I'm writing this blog post, I'm watching rewatching Season 2 for the gazillionth time this year! ;)

Shannon from Pahlish is a goddess when it comes to nail polish and Doctor Who inspired ones! A few weeks ago, she released a couple of Bespokes that were Who inspired. I was able to snag Sexy Fish Vampires, a beautiful "candy pink linear holographic packed with iridescent hot pink flakes." Sexy Fish Vampires refers to the Saturnyns from the episode "The Vampires of Venice." I'm really kicking myself for not getting the other one!

Even taken in my light tent with artificial daylight lighting,  you can see the gorgeous holo! I'm not really a pink person, but this is one of my favorite polishes. I used 3 coats of SFV and Ellagee Grip and Glass. Application was amazing! I had some pulling on the second coat, but that's to be expected from holos. The third coat evened everything out and the polish is the right consistency so it's not thick. Unfortunately, this isn't available for purchase anymore, but you may be able to pick it up from a blog sale! Be sure to follow Pahlish on Facebook for restocks, sneak peeks of new collections, Bespokes and Duos!!

Are you a fellow Whovian?

Fall Floral Stamping With KBShimmer and Emily de Molly

Howdy do!! I know, I know.. it's been forever and a day since I've posted :( Everything is crazy at work with the remodel, it seems like I'm doing a lot more at work apart from my normal duties, and when I get home and do "mom" things, there just isn't time to do anything nail polish related. But alas!! I was inspired by some of sveta_sanders work on Instagram and had to do some stamping! :D

I was going for a fall floral theme. I did a gradient using KBShimmer Rust No One and Up & Cunning from the Fall 2014 collection, and Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer Black Patent and EDM05. I am in love with the Emily de Molly stamping plates, so I knew this stamp would be beautiful! Seriously, I've been wearing this for over a week now! I used Ellagee Grip and Glass for my base and top coats. Can I just say here how much I love Glass?! Like, honestly?? This is the first time since I've been stamping that a top coat did not smear my designs!! 

I'm absolutely in love with this! Gradients and stamping are definitely becoming my thing. My 8 year old daughter loved this so much I had to do her nails the same way!

Are you wearing fall colors or doing fall themed nail art? Let me know in the comments!
