Wax vs. Matte top coat Comparison

**The products in this post were all purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own.**

I received a request to do a comparison between Cult Nails Wax That wax effect top coat and a regular matte top coat. People are wondering if there really is a difference. 

My current go to matte top coat is NYC Matte Me Crazy. So, I grabbed that and my Wax That bottle and got to work. I decided to test them over Cult Nails - Nevermore and SinfulColors - SinfulShine - Picante. I did two coats of each color on two nails. Then tossed each top coat over one nail of each color.

Here are the results...

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

When Cult Nails announced their Dance All Night collection I was so excited to see some more glitters from them. I knew I had to have them all. I was able to pre order the collection AND I was one of the first 250 so I got a free bottle of their Wax That top coat. I'm in love with this top coat! I still have yet to get their last collection, but these will hold me over momentarily. Only momentarily. I need those pinks!!  On to the swatches!!

I wanted to show you all another polish I snagged a few weeks ago in the clearance bin at Sally Beauty Supply. This one impressed me with the high gloss finish it had with no top coat.

365 Days of Color Maybe Baby

**The products in this post were purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own.**

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

The WONDERFUL Sunny over at 365 Days of Color has recently started doing monthly limited edition polishes. I think it is such a fun idea! I have already snagged both of the LEs she's put out so far. Today, I'm going to show you all May's LE polish called Maybe Baby. As soon as I first saw this top coat, I knew I just HAD to have it. I've been loving the large round glitter trend, but I haven't snagged anything with them yet. This was my first. All I can say is that I'M KICKING MYSELF FOR NOT GETTING A FULL SIZED BOTTLE!

Julie G Gumdrops - Rock Candy

**This product was purchased with my own money. All opinions are my own.**




I was doing some grocery shopping at Wegmans with my munchkin the other day and the JulieG Gumdrops display caught my eye. It was practically empty, but it caught my eye nonetheless. I had been to my Rite Aid and they didn't have it. I figured if they didn't have it they weren't going to be getting it. So, I snagged what I could from the display at Wegmans. It ended up only being one for me and one for a friend, but I was pleased enough with that because I didn't think I would be able to find them at all.

China Glaze Flip-Flop Fantasy

**The product in this post was purchased by me. All opinions are my own.**

A friend recently asked for my help in finding out what a certain polish was. After seeing the picture and helping her figure it out, I knew I needed the color too! I had seen swatches of it before, but there was something special about the picture she showed me that made me crave the color. In a little outing to Sally Beauty Supply, a bottle of it caught my eye in the core line shelving. I've got to be honest...I let out a little squeal of excitement.

Hard Candy Glitter Top Coats

**The product in this post was provided to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Hard Candy recently sent me a couple of the new line of polishes to review. I was so excited to try them out. I had previously purchased a few, but ended up giving them away and never got a chance to get more. After trying out the two glitter top coats that Hard Candy sent me, I really want to go back and get a few more of the other types of polishes they have. 

I really loved the formula of the older Hard Candy polishes so I was really curious to see how the new ones compared. I didn't have any glitters of the older ones, so I didn't have anything to compare the new top coats to. So we will jump right in!

Essie In the Cab-ana

**The product in this post was purchased by myself. All opinions are my own.**

When I was out and about this weekend, one item I knew I was hunting for was Essie In the Cab-ana. My friend, Jenn, had posted pics of it on her nails and I fell in love. For me, the formula for Essie cremes are hit or miss, but this color had me complete sold! Once I started putting it on my nails, I knew I was in the right to get it. The brush was better than most the other cremes of theirs I have and the formula was so much easier to work with. Something is improving over there me thinks!
