Delush Polish: Nue Collection swatches and review



Hi there readers! Is everyone slowly recovering from their turkey comas? This week has been a crazy one to say the least. Remember how I said we lost our internet for a day this week? Well on Wednesday, we got slammed with almost 10 inches of snow and in with the snow, out went our power. We lost it Wednesday early afternoon and didn't get it back til 2 a.m. Thursday morning!! This post I have for you today was supposed to go live on Wednesday when the collection launched but that didn't happen. I'm really thankful for the utility workers who worked round the clock to restore power to us and the other 18k homes that were out!!! You never realize how often you take these things for granted til you are left without it!

Today I have the beautiful Nue Collection from Delush Polish to show you.

Delush Polish: Nail art with 'Murder House' and 'Freak Show Spectacle

*provided for review


Well hi there!!! Long time no post, huh? I can finally say that things are dying down around my house. We had our grand opening at our store which turned out better than we could have ever hoped!!

Our internet provider was having issues and my area and the area next to us was out for almost 2 days!! We just got it back a little bit ago, hence the late post. This was also supposed to have been Monday's post.

I have 2 gorgeous beauties from Delush Polish to show you!! When Adrianna emailed me, she said she would be including a couple shades from her previous collections for me to do some nail art with. Well, the 2 she included didn't disappoint!!!

Zoya: Ultra PixieDust Fall 2014 Collection swatches and review



Hi there!! It's Wednesday and CHILLY!! I know a lot of areas are already getting snow and we've seen some flurries where I live but no accumulation yet. To be honest, I hope the snow holds off a bit longer!!!

Today I have swatches of the new Zoya Ultra Pixie Dusts for Fall 2014! These are definitely more different than the classic PixieDusts.

Read why and see more swatches after the jump!


First up is 'Oswin', a cherry red textured polish with as Zoya describes, "Mega Hex particles"

Zoya-Ultra-PixieDusts-Fall-2014-Oswin




'Oswin' is gorgeous, no lie about that. I applied 3 easy coats, the first one being sparse with more of the jelly base showing through. Coverage built up nicely by the third coat. When applying the PixieDusts, I don't apply any base or top coat and wait a good 5 minutes in between each coat. I just wish these were more like the original PixieDusts which I DON'T OWN!!! I found this one dried the most "matte" on me.

Next up is 'Arianna', a deep currant red with the same characteristics as 'Oswin'.

At first glance, these look veeerrryy similar. But they're not. 'Arianna' is the deeper sister to 'Oswin'. This one doesn't dry as matte though, it has that shiny, squishy appearance to it. Le-sigh, if only these dried more matte!! I applied 3 coats using the same technique as I did with 'Oswin'.  Very pretty and has the nicest cranberry tinge to it!

Lastly, we have 'Noir', my favorite of the trio!!

Zoya-Ultra-PixieDusts-Fall-2014-Noir


This is a plum jelly base with mulberry colored glitters. This one had more of the jelly base and wasn't as glitter dense as the previous two. Nonetheless, I heart this one!! Maybe it's that gorgeous shade of sangria that makes me want a glass of wine RIGHT MEOW! This one didn't dry very matte either which I found disappointing. 3 coats.

Yeeeaah, this macro sucks.

Overall, I liked these but I'm not in love with them. I just wish there were more glitter and these dried more matte!! I still love Zoya, I just wish they would put out more of the original PixieDusts in these shades!!!

What do you think about the new Ultra PixieDusts?
