Cameo Colours Lacquers Debutante Collection Swatch and Review

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

It's been a few months since I've had anything new from Cameo Colours Lacquers to show you all. Trust me, this is well worth the wait. She had been testing the UCC flakies when everyone and their mother started releasing them. After the testing process was over and she had seen what had been offered she decided to come up with the Debutante Collection. Four beautiful crellies and a lovely full coverage topper. 

These polishes are every big as lovely as they are sassy...just like the perfect southern debutante. These speak for themselves.

LynBDesigns Vocab Collection Swatch and Review Part 1

**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.**

It's the last Monday ever in April this year. I feel like 2015 is going to fly by and I'm not even going to remember it. However, the collections that have been flying at me this year are going to make sure I remember 2015 with high regard. It's overcast and dreary here so it's fitting that I've had this post scheduled for today.

The newest collection from LynBDesigns is the Vocab Collection. It is her brightest collection yet! Three neon holo shimmers, five creams and crellies, and two toppers. I ended up taking so many pictures and using the toppers on everything, so I've split this collection into three posts. Please stick with me here, I promise you won't be disappointed!

The Vocab Collection are all named after slang terms used lately. You may not like all the names, but you're going to love these polishes. Today, I'm showing off the creams and crellies.

Killer Queen Varnish New Releases Swatch and Review

**The products in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer for photography and my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

It's Friday! We made it!! Can you believe it's the last Friday in the month of April?! Why is this year flying by?! My head is absolutely spinning. 

While I start spinning the opposite direction to try to slow time down, I've got some beautiful polishes from Killer Queen Varnish that will be releasing tomorrow. This isn't an actual collection, just some miscellaneous polishes that she has created that desperately need some tender, loving care in good homes.

Shinespark Polish Swatch and Review

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

A couple weeks ago, I bought a couple polishes from a new indie I had seen popping up. Shinespark Polish is a 5-Free indie brand that is run by Molly. She's got a range of toppers, jellies, neons, holos, and she's been working on some thermals and solars. I knew I had some neons coming in from other indies so I found a couple toppers that sparked my interest. When my package arrived, I saw she had thrown in an extra mini which was really nice of her.

China Glaze Mini Haul Swatch and Review

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

Last month, Sally Beauty had their China Glaze on sale for buy one get one free. I had heard they were discontinuing some core line colors, I was scared I was going to miss out on some polishes I had put on the back burner. I needed to get them while I still could. Thankfully, it also coincided with their 50% off clearance sale. 

I let my husband and daughter have some time together and I started off to the first, of my two, Sally Beauty. I got there and was trying to get some information from the employee and she was extremely rude. I put back everything I had in my basket and headed over to the other location and swore off ever going to the first Sally Beauty again.

Once I got to the second location, I saw that their China Glaze display was half empty and they weren't in the sale bin. Luckily, they had everything in a basket and let me dig through it. SOOOOOOO happy they did too. I had been wanting Japanese Koi for so long...I grabbed 2. It was a BOGO deal after all. Saw two other neons that caught my eye, so I grabbed those as well. Then I headed over to the clearance bin and saw a brown I needed. Didn't mind having an odd number since my Sally Beauty won't honor the BOGO deals with clearance items.


Ready for the swatches of these beauties?!

DazzleGlaze Fruits of Jamaica and Electric Aquarius Swatch and Review

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

Last week might have been rough on our household, but today is Monday and the start of a new week. Fingers crossed no more illness over here for a while. At least I was able to get some swatching done in between her napping and my running around the house with Lysol wipes, I was able to get some swatching done. 

I've got more beauties from DazzleGlaze today. This time, two miscellaneous toppers. No collections this time around, but these two deserve some attention. Fruits of Jamaica is from the Tropical Sanctuary Collection, and Electric Aquarius doesn't have a collection but it's name was inspired by something near and dear to Candace, the lady behind DazzleGlaze. These two are lovely and needed a bit of love.

Sweet Heart Polish Unteal Another Rainbow and Hyacinth Swatch and Review

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

WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY!!! I have never been more happy to see Friday than I am today. After the fever situation with my munchkin, then, Wednesday night/Thursday morning I ended up having to take her to the ER. My kid has never even gone to the doctor for anything other than a well visit and we end up in the ER. She's fine now, but I spent the day super tired. Hopefully she will make it through the whole day at school. 

To cheer me up, and to help take my mind off worrying about her, I swatched a couple beauties I recently got from Sweet Heart Polish. I was trying to narrow down my purchase and these two jumped into my cart. I don't know how it happened. I think there were ski masks and guns involved, but don't worry, no one was harmed. ;o)

NailNation3000 Giorgio's Holo Swatch and Review

**The product in this post was given to me by a friend.**

If Monday wasn't bad enough, last night my daughter got a horrible fever. I thought I was going to have to take her to the ER it was so bad. So, I'm nursing her today and helping her get better. I hate when she is sick. Makes me so sad. Anyway, she's napping so I'm typing this up before checking her temperature again.

Ruby Kisses Ruby Stars Swatch and Review

**The product in this post was gifted to me by a friend.**

I have had a horrid, horrid morning. I thought it was going to start out beautifully! Wonderful weather, daughter woke up cheerful, I woke up well rested...we were going to take on the world. Then, I had to take my car to the body shop, and the rental company I had to deal with turned out to be rude jerks (won't go into full details, but just stay away from them! My husband even had to deal with them in a completely different state and left a poor review about how he was treated.). Never working with Hertz rental again. The insurance company swooped in and figured out a way for me to switch to Enterprise and my day is half gone but saved! Anyway, now onto why you're REALLY here! 

A few weeks ago, I posted about OPI's Man of La Mancha that I found on a Pinterest sale board. In that package, she included a little something extra. I had never heard of Ruby Kisses before this, but I definitely want to try to find more!

Killer Queen Varnish Spring Collection Swatch and Review

**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.**

I love Fall and Winter weather and dark cozy colors, but as much as I hate warmer weather and migraines brought on by the sun, I LOVE SPRING COLLECTIONS!!! I mean how can you not?! Bright colors and fun glitters. They'll put anyone in a good mood.

Today, not only do I have the Spring Collection from Killer Queen Varnish to show you, but I have some lovely songs for you to listen to while you're reading and looking. All of Killer Queen Varnish's polishes are named after songs. It is only appropriate that I include the songs in my post to help set the mood.

Spring Break NOTD

**The products in this post were both purchased by me with my own money and sent to me by the manufacturer for my honest review. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated.**

Last week was my daughters "Spring break". I put it in quotes because it was basically a 4 day weekend and a teacher work day. Totally stupid imho (in my honest opinion). Anyway, I didn't get a chance to do my nails before we left, so I loaded up a handful of colors and any thing I'd need for hand care and did my nails once we got down there.

Cinema Swatch Lacquers Marie's Retreat and Bells of Ireland Comparison

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

How is it already April?! I'm really confused. I thought Christmas was like 2 weeks ago. Why? How does time pass so quickly?! Well, my daughter's "Spring Break" starts tomorrow. I have to put Spring Break in quotes because it's just a four day weekend. Since when was Spring Break not a week? Nine days actually because you usually get 2 whole weekends. This is ridiculous! Well, I'm taking her out of town to visit her grandmother for 2 days. This will be my last post this week, but when I get back in town I'll have some new packages and some swatching to do! 

On Monday, I showed you all the entire My Secret Garden Collection from Cinema Swatch Lacquers here. When I was doing my swatching, I thought Bells of Ireland looked familiar. I had just pulled out Marie's Retreat to use with one of the Exotic Petals. Sure enough, they looked super similar in the bottle. As I was in the middle of swatching, I figured I would take some comparison shots.

Some similarities. Some differences. Keep reading to find out more!
