butter LONDON

It has been forever and a day since I’ve heard anything new from butter LONDON nail polish. Yes, they’ve been releasing new collections and shades but when a box of their newest Patent Shine 10x formula polishes landed on my doorstep, I knew that big things were happenin’.

So many nail polish companies have been jumping on that gel thing and I’m just so excited to see something different. Just a regular ole’ formula with that promises to leave a shiny finish. Yes. I can do that. That works for me. I test drove these 4 shades…

I Played With Nail Polish

The other day I played in nail polish. Y’all have no idea how long it has been since I had some fun and no pressure play time in my nail polish stash. It doesn’t happen often. In fact, it happened WAY more pre-kid. Now instead of playing in polishes, I’m too busy cleaning a kitchen, attempting to spend time with Esposo or just diving into my newest hobby, reading. But whatever. Sometimes you gotta take it back and play, man.

And play, I did! These are all random polishes that I just grabbed from my stash. They are mostly from the Fall 2014 season and sent to me by the brands. Here’s to hoping there are still available should you fall in love with any of them!

Green Nail Polish for St. Patrick’s Day

Green nail polish for St. Patrick's Day

Okay, for the record – I am not Irish. Not even a little bit. I mean, maybe but I doubt it. Probably not. So yeah. I never get into celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve never had green beer and I’ll likely punch you in the throat if you pinch me for not wearing green. *snort*

Okay, I’m kidding. Maybe a little. But I DO looooove the color green. It’s one of my favorite nail polish colors. I know a lot of nail polish lovers will be whipping out green nail polishes out in honor of St. Patrick’s Day so I decided to highlight some of my favorites.

Zoya Naturel Satins nail polish collection

The most important thing about this collection is that Zoya is finally giving us a nail polish named Brittany!!!! Yes y’all! I’m pretty sure it wasn’t named after me, but I’m excited about it. Not Britney. Not Britnee. Just plain on Brittany. Yeah, I’m a bit of a name snob. Check let’s good at this collection…

Zoya Naturel Satins nail polish collection

I received this for review and this collection is a nice in-between Winter and Spring collection. This hybrid formula is a cross between a gloss and matte and I LOVE how you can reach full opacity with a good 2 coats.

Glitter, Glitter, Glitter, Glitter Rockin’ Everywhere

My Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida crew has come together to rap about one of our favooooorite things. Glitter!! I get it. Glitter isn’t for everyone but I am so here for glitter. Every ounce of it. If  it were safe, I’d bathe it in. Okay, definitely too much information. Ha! I decided to showcase some glitter nail polishes that I got as a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law. It’s always hard shopping for a beauty lover because we always obtain the things that we want. And some people want to go beyond a gift card. Indie really is the best way to go because I don’t always have my eyes on what the indie brands are doing.

Cirque Burlesque Nail Polish Collection

How have I been back for almost a month and have not showcased some nail polishes? Yeesh!! Months before I went on my hiatus, I received some polishes from Cirque Colors and aside from being ridiculously excited that I was on their radar, I was honored that they decided to send me some polishes.

I took these pictures months ago and ugh, I so wish my nails were this long now. I am in loooove with that shape and I just haven’t been able to achieve it thanks to this colder weather. But whatever. I’ll lust and do what I can to get my nails to that point again.

My Sally Hansen Pamper Party!

Well my loves, I had a fabulous Pamper Party + going away party for my good friend Su and I had it all documented via photos until, guess what? My camera decided to do some crazy stuff and I ended up with only TWO pictures of the almost 20+ that I took. My heart is broken but luckily my girl Nidia let me borrow some of her pictures. So…yeah.

Nidia, Su and I got gathered at a swanky hotel downtown where I chatted to them about Sally Hansen®’s newest nail polish. Have you heard about it? I’ve purchased several bottles of these already and when I got the opportunity to host a party with some gal pals to share my love of this newest line, well, I couldn’t pass it down. Baby Toddler Clumps came with me and was such a sweet girl coloring while Mama “worked”.
