LynBDesigns Holiday Trio and Essentials Collection Swatch and Review

**Press Sample**

I know I have been absent for a while, but I'm back and with some fabulous goodies to show you all! 

LynBDesigns has released not one, but two collections today to go with her Black Friday sale that also started today! The details on the sale will be at the end of the post so read through everything. The first collection I have to show you is the Holiday Trio. The second, is the Essentials Collection. A little difficult to show, but I will tell you about each product. 

Old Familiar Carols is described as "a light mossy green with golden glass flecks and linear holo".
Shown is three coats of Old Familiar Carols with B-StickyB-Shiny, and B-Moisturized.
Old Familiar Carols applied like a dream. Super smooth, but slightly sheer. It took three coats to get it fully opaque. It goes on thin, so don't worry about it being too thick.
$10 ($8 during the Black Friday sale)

Unbroken Song is described as "a red jelly with red and orange micro glitters and red glass flecks".
Shown is two coats of Unbroken Song with B-SmoothB-Shiny, and B-Moisturized.
Unbroken Song was so perfect, it needed no clean up. There may not be any holo in this one, but it's a stunner! The perfect polish to jazz up your nails for a holiday party or date night.
$8 ($6 during the Black Friday sale)




From Night to Day is described as "a blue toned purple jelly holo".
Shown is two coats of From Night to Day with B-StickyB-Shiny, and B-Moisturized.
From Night to Day is an absolute perfect polish! It is officially my new favorite purple, and it's one you NEED to have in your collection.
$10 ($8 during the Black Friday sale)

If you are loving all three of the Holiday Trio polishes, the set is on sale for $20 during the Black Friday sale! That's basically getting one for free! 

In addition to the Holiday TrioLynBDesigns also released her new Essentials Collection. It consists of B-Smooth (a ridge-filling base coat), B-Sticky (a sticky base coat), B-Shiny (a quick-dry, glossy top coat), and B-Moisturized (a fast absorbing cuticle oil). 

The set of all four is on sale for $15 ($20 after the sale) for the Black Friday sale. Once again, that is like getting one for free! Separately, they are currently $5 each ($6 after the sale).

B-Moisturizing is available in three scents: gummy bears, peach, and almond rose. Gummy bears smells a bit softer than the first whiff you get as soon as you open a bag of Haribo. I thought peach was going to smell like the peach gummy rings, but it smells more like a peach blossom. It's soft and lovely. Almond Rose smells exactly like that, but the combination almost has a honeysuckle scent. I'm not a fan of rose scented anything, and I'm quite fond of this one. My absolute favorite of the three was a surprise even to myself. I'm obsessed with gummy bears! 

**BLACK FRIDAY SALE INFORMATION**
LynBDesigns has marked down everything in her shop up to 50% off. The sale is already in full swing and will run through December 2nd. She has created four stunning limited edition gift with purchase polishes. For every $25 you spend in her shop (before shipping) you will get one of the LEGWPs. So, if you spend $100 you will automatically get 4 additional polishes. 

Also, don't forget about the Facebook fan group, LynB Loves! You get sneak peeks of polishes there, have contests/giveaways, and just all have fun while talking about a brand we love. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Zoya Wishes Collection Swatches and Review

**Press Sample**

Happy Halloween, everyone!! I know I just showed you all the beautiful Matte Velvet Collection from Zoya, but I decided to make it a Zoya week and show you all the Wishes Collection as well. It's been slow are here for blogging, and I apologize, but I'm not going anywhere...just enjoying my family. :o) Now, for some swatches before a fun night of trick-or-treat!



Willa is described as "a full-coverage, densely pigmented onyx black cream".
Shown is two coats of Willa without top coat.
A stunning, solid black that seems like it would be perfect for stamping. Willa is probably going to work it's way up to one of my favorite black polishes.
$9




Imogen is described as "a black crystal magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter".
Shown is three coats of Imogen without top coat.
As a jelly base, it took three coats to get Imogen fully opaque. It isn't as textured as other Ultra PixieDust polishes, but it's a great alternative to layering a glitter topper over a black polish.
$10




Haven is described as "a true holiday plum liquid metal with a thin vein of orchid to ensure brilliance".
Shown is three coats of Haven without top coat.
My favorite of the non-PixieDust polishes, Haven is a must have whether you're a purple lover or not. This one will win you over in no time!
$9




Thea is described as "a deep amethyst Magical PixieDust with an orchid flash, packed full of party ready holographic hex glitter".
Shown is three coats of Thea without top coat.
Another fun polish, but Thea doesn't quite dry with an overly textured finish. Just slightly bumpy. Still very pretty! Would easily smooth out with top coat if desired.
$10




Prim is described as "a velvet blue metallic with a full-coverage, high-density pigment and buttery smooth application".
Shown is three coats of Prim without top coat.
A beautiful shade of violet, Prim isn't one of favorites. I wish it was more metallic than it was. It seemed more frosty to me, and I'm just not a fan of frosts. Nothing wrong with the formula or application or anything. It's all preference here.
$9




Nori is described as "a sapphire blue Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter".
Shown is three coats of Nori without top coat.
My favorite of the whole collection, Nori is vibrant and sparkly! Opaque in three coats, this just might be the best polish from the "non-traditional" PixieDusts! 
$10




I love Zoya. There is no denying that, but we can't rave about every collection in it's entirety, all the time. The Wishes Collection is full of smooth applications and great formulas, even if I'm, personally, not attracted to some of the finishes. There is no denying a great formula. 


The Wishes Collection is available to pre-order now. You can get the whole collection for $57  or single bottles for $9 to $10. There are some good ones here, so pick ad choose wisely!!
