Barielle

**Press Sample**
**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

BIG NEWS!!! I've been accepted into the Barielle blogger family!! I'm so excited you guys!! It was hard for me to keep this quiet for the past few weeks. Feels so good to spill the beans! Since I was accepted shortly after their Velvets collection was released, they sent me base and top coats as well as 6 polishes that are a mixture of old and new shades instead. I have everything swatched for you today! I figured we'd end this week with a nice big finish!

Island Girl trio

**The featured product in this post was purchased by me through a friend. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

A lady in a group I'm in went to Hawaii a few weeks ago and posted a picture of an Island Girl display asking if we wanted anything. The unanimous answer was, "That's a stupid question!" I couldn't go overboard since she was buying for multiple people, including herself, and having to bring them back to the states with her. I saw they had trios, and I jumped at the chance to try this vibrant set that stuck out. Once I got the trio, I noticed that none of them had names. Kind of made me sad. I like being able to reference polishes by name. I'll let you know right now, that is the only bad thing I have to say about these.

Zoya Summer 2014 Magical Pixies

**Press Sample**

I've got the last of the summer 2014 collections from Zoya to show you today. This newest trio of Magical Pixies is by far my favorite! I haven't been the biggest fan of the chunkier versions of the PixieDust polishes, until now. This trio is more jelly based, and for some reason that made the chunkiness not so bad for me. Plus, there's a nude!! Love a good nude, especially a nude glitter! Keep scrolling to find out more about these lovelies!!

CinaPro Nail Sugar

**The featured product in this post was given to me by a friend. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

A few weeks ago, a friend sent me a box of goodies! This beauty was one of the ones in there. It was so much fun, it had to be the first one I showed off! CinaPro Nail Sugar in Hyperactive. I don't see it on their website, so I think it's only something you can get at a store (not sure where she got it excatly though). Yeah, just a basic lime green glitter to you. Come see what I see though...

Beautifully Disney

**The featured product in this post was purchased by me with my own money. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

As you may have noticed from my posts a couple weeks ago, my husband and I spent a week in sunny California for our anniversary. We started it off by enjoying a few days at Disneyland. In walking around the Downtown Disney area, I found a store that carried Disney cosmetics! I got so excited!! I had to grab one for myself! They didn't have anything original, but I've been wanting a simple black and white glitter topper and they had a perfect one!

Zoya Bubbly Collection

**Press Sample**

Yesterday, I got to show you all the beautiful Tickled Collection from Zoya. Today, I have the pleasure of showing off the other half of the summer collections, the Bubbly Collection. The Bubbly Collection is a set of six amazing "liquid-metal holographic jellies". I'm going to be honest, when I was looking at these in the bottles I wasn't impressed. I felt like I had seen them before in an indie shop somewhere. I might not have, but they felt familiar. On the nail, I felt like they came to life. Like a caged animal needing to be released back into the wild... Ok, that's a bit dramatic, but really, you won't get the whole feel for these by looking at them in a bottle.

Zoya Tickled Collection

**Press Sample**

The amazing Tickled Collection from Zoya arrived on my doorstep the day before I left for vacation. I was hoping they'd arrive while I was gone so I didn't have to see them and pout over not being able to use them yet. When I got back and was finally able to, it was like a huge sigh of relief. The six cremes that make up the Tickled Collection are so very happy and bright!

Shortly before I left for vacation, Cameo Colours Lacquer released a Mother's Day duo. Since I was headed out of town, I wasn't able to swatch them, but I happened to win them on an Instagram contest she had! I was so excited! They have the cutest names...Peace and Quiet and No Dishes. Two things all mothers request on Mother's Day. As soon as they arrived I had to try them! They are quite lovely...and still available!!

A Girl Obsessed Matte-ict #3

**WARNING PICTURE HEAVY**

Today, I wanted to use Matte-ict on all my glitter toppers from A Girl Obsessed. I wanted you all to really get a feel for how amazing this matte top coat really is. After these last three posts, I really hope you understand why you need it in your life.


Cold Shattered Heart over OPI Amazon...Amazoff topped with Matte-ict.





Fractured Spirit over OPI Kiss Me I'm Brazilian topped with Matte-ict.





Whimsyshire over OPI Toucan Do It If You Try topped with Matte-ict.

I think matte-ing the top coats was so much fun!! Matte-ict totally changes the way these look, and not in a bad way at all! When the A Girl Obsessed opens shop again, Matte-ict should be the first thing in your cart! Only $7 and this bottle will be your new best friend!!




Happy Polishing!!

OPI Random Brazil and Muppets Most Wanted Swatches

**The featured products in this post were gifted to me by a friend. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

I was recently gifted some OPI polishes from the Brazil and Muppets Most Wanted collections. I've been eyeing these collections since they were announced. I know a lot of people weren't impressed, but I was blown away from the beautiful vibrant colors of Brazil, and the subtle beauty behind the majority of the Muppets Most Wanted colors. I couldn't wait to swatch them for you all! The first four polishes are from the Brazil Collection and the last one is from the Muppets Most Wanted Collection.
