Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Review

                                                                                                                  ***All products were provided for and honest review.***

I was a fan of the blogger Wishes of a Blue-Eyed Girl since my early days of blogging. Recently, this blogger turned her love of polish into every polish hoarders lovers dream and started her own indie brand, Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer.

I was thrilled, of course to get the chance to swatch for her. She has an amazing Winter Collection and is doing a full restock on 1/1/14, which will include these two beauties from the Winter Collection as well as an amazingly beautiful New Year's Duo.

Santa & His Suit and Candy Cane Cutie Pie Christmas Manis

We're sure you're all sick of Christmas manis but we're going to share ours anyway!  These are the cute manis we're sporting for Christmas.  


I, Vicky, decided to do a santa mani.  I love the connected manis and wanted to try one with Santa's head and his suit.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

I used Pure Ice Siren and a nail art brush to make Santa's suit.  For the his head I painted my nail in a sheer pink and painted his face, hat and beard with nail art brushes.  

 This is pretty much the cutest mani I've ever done, I love it!  Please don't mind my very short pointer finger nail.  I broke it the other day cleaning, darn! 

The pinky nail is Glitter Guilty Pine Cones and Holly Berries that came in my December box.  This glitter topper has gold, purple and red glitters.  It's a very cute Christmas glitter that is a nice addition to my collection.


I, Erika, painted a candy cane mani.  It's a simple but cute Christmas mani. 

I used Zoya Carmen with Jade Diamond red holo topper and Avon Brushed Metals Platinum stripes with a striping brush.


We hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year!! We are blessed with such a great group of followers and we love sharing our nail obsession with you!

Snowfall Mani

We've had some snowy weather here on the East Coast, even my nails had some flakes!  Ah yes, winter is here and so is the freezing cold weather.  Luckily the snow has been melting quick.  It's pretty to look at for a couple hours but then I'm done, so melt away!  And on that note, here's a snowy mani for your visual pleasure...

I painted my nails with Essie Rock the Boat and used a dotting tool for the snowfall nails.  Then I used a thin nail art brush to make the snowflake.  The snowflake was way harder than I thought it would be!

This polish is a perfect winter blue and even though I hate snow, I'm digging this mani!

Have you tried any winter manis?  We'd love to see them! Share pics on our Facebook page

Paint Shop Polish Review

***All products were provided for and honest review.***

Paint Shop Polish has a great line of winter polishes. Whether you like shimmers, glitter toppers or just a little sparkle, she has it all!

We have two polishes from the winter collection. First up is the perfect Christmas red sparkle topper, Prancer

For this mani I used one opaque coat of Zoya Carmen and two thick coats of Prancer. I gave it all a glossy finish with one coat of HK Girl top coat.

The formula on this polish was a tad thick, but not hard to work with. It went on evenly and dried nicely.

My favorite of the two polishes is the glitter topper, Jack Frost. Perfect for the cold, snowy weather we've been having here on the east coast, this polish has small, vibrant aqua blue glitters and large snowflakes.

I layered one coat of Jack Frost over one coat of Sephora by OPI Social Climber. I used two thick coats of HK Girl top coat to smooth everything out and seal the edges of the snowflakes.

Of course I had to fish like crazy to get each and every snowflake. That's to be expected with these types of large glitters.

Overall, I enjoyed using these polishes. I LOVED Jack Frost and couldn't stop looking at my nails!!!

Please check out Paint Shop Polish on Etsy and give them a like on Facebook

Glitter Guilty December Box Reveal

My Glitter Guilty December box came a couple of days ago and I am thrilled!!! 

This month I got a full size bottle of Glam Girl, which will be reviewed in detail below, a mini bottle of Pinecones and Holly Berries and a tasty treat from Sweet Poppins!  Sweet Poppins makes gourmet flavored popcorn in some crazy yummy flavors like lemon pound cake and red velvet.  As you can see, I got strawberry cheesecake and it was DE-LISH!  I always seem to devour my special treat the minute my box arrives.  I guess I have a bit of a sweet tooth :) 

Glam Girl is a jelly-based neon pink polish with pink microglitter and medium and large hexes.  It was love at first site!

The formula of this jelly is wonderful.  It has great coverage with just 2 coats.  Isn't it pretty?!  This is absolutely my favorite polish I have gotten from Glitter Guilty so far.  

Here are macros of both polishes.  Pinecones and Holly Berries is a clear-based glitter with small red hexes, purple hexes and gold circles and hexes.  I didn't swatch this one because I am going to use it in one of my Christmas manis later in the month.

To learn more about the Glitter Guilty subscription or to get one for yourself, go to her website here.  You won't be disappointed, she makes great polishes and provides amazing customer service!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh, You Fancy? Chanel Swatches for the Designer Polish Lovers

Just recently one of our aunts surprised us each with a bottle of Chanel nail polish.  At $27 a bottle, chances are it's not something either of us would ever buy for ourselves.  We were so excited for our first designer polishes!  She picked two gorgeous colors that fit our unique styles perfectly.  

 I,Vicky, got Taboo, a deep purple-based shimmer with hints of blue and bronze microglitter.  

Both the color and application of this polish is absolutely luxurious.  In fact, you really only need one coat to get full coverage and opacity.  That never happens!  

I decided to use Sephora Mauve-ie Star in the Making glitter topcoat on the accent nail to add even more pizzazz.  I use this glitter topcoat fairly often because it it's soooo pretty and is great with the pinks and purples I am always wearing.  It has larger pink and lavendar glitter with gold and pink microglitters.  

I think my favorite thing about this polish is how noticeable but subtle the blue and gold shimmer is, especially in the photos.  This was the most perfect mani for the bachelorette party I was going to over the weekend... perfectly glam!


I, Erika, got Chanel Alchemie, a shimmery, creamy olive green. 

Of course this polish applied like a dream. Is it worth the $27 price tag? I think not!! I personally don't think any polish is worth this much for that matter.

I added a little flare to this mani with some fun water decals from Born Pretty Store. I had to cut these down significantly to fit my shorties, but they still look great!

This was my Thanksgiving mani and it matched the olive green shirt I wore. POW! 

Did you have a special mani for Thanksgiving? We'd love to see it!!
