Amor de Lacquer: OPI Red and White Shatter polishes

Oh no, girlfriend. If you thought the crackle polish craze was over, think again. It’s really just starting and if you aren’t a fan, then uh…the exit is to the left. I jest. I jest. But I am really digging crackle nail polish. It gives nails a certain kind of pop. Glitter is cool and I love konading but crackle is givin’ me life right now. That said, I was excited to see OPI’s new red and white shatters.

And yep, that’s the fabulous Serena Williams

I would not have known about this collection had it not been for Scrangie. I saw her review and before I knew it, I was ordering from Head2ToeBeauty. This is one collection that I HAD to have.

You knew it was coming, didn’t you? I’ve reviewed so many other products from e.l.f. that it only makes sense that I review their polishes. You know, with me being obsessed with nail polish and all. This 5-piece nail set costs all of $5. Well, helllloooo there!

Guest Post: Review and swatches of MAC Quite Cute collection

MAC’s latest collection Quite Cute was released earlier this month on April 7th. I have a weakness for pastels so I picked up a few things from the collection. I also picked up a Gold Deposit Mineralize Skin Finish. It’s a part of the other collection released this month from MAC, Bronze Everyday. I was almost out of my favorite foundation MAC’s Pro Longwear (NW50) so I picked up my second bottle. I am addicted to it. It lasts longer than any other foundation that I have tried. I just set it and forget it, I’m good for ten or more hours. Amazing!

Check out the pictures and swatches of my haul.

Amor de Lacquer: China Glaze Anchors Away, part I

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

This collection isn’t THAT new. It has been out for a few months and while it didn’t cause a lot of fanfare in the nail polish world, I think Anchors Away was one of China Glaze’s best collections. And I’m a little delayed at reviewing it but hereeee we go! First up, the darker shades…

Jennifer Hudson wears China Glaze’s Grape Pop

I love Jennifer Hudson. I love that she is one of the few R&B singers out today that actually knows how to sing. I love that SHE was the star of Dreamgirls instead of ‘you know who’. I’d also love to get up on her weight loss plan but that’s neither here nor there.

Check the newstands for the upcoming issue of Essence Magazine where J.Hud will be gracing the cover. And on her nails are China Glaze’s Grape Pop. Fo real! Manicurist Cenita Scott hooked Jennifer up with one of my favorite nail polishes.

Grape Pop is from the Up & Away Collection. I was rockin’ it a few seasons ago myself.

You can still snag it on TransDesign.com for $2.99. See, J.Hud…I knew we were friends. Now how about lettin’ me sing a hook on your next album? 8)
