Hello readers,
Due to some shipping delays I didn't end up reviewing the Emily de Molly March release for you when it first came out. However, Hayley - the maker of Emily de Molly - was kind enough to send my favorite shades afterwards so I could still share them with you. Let's take a look at swatches.

Dappled Lilac


Dappled Lilac features a pale lilac holo base with a sprinkling of small glitters in shades of blue, purple and copper. The formula was easy to work with taking two coats for full coverage. I didn't experience any issues with glitter texture but I added top coat for longer wear. Photos show two coats of Dappled Lilac with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Idle Sails


Idle Sails features a vibrant blue foiled metallic base with a strong gold-green shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking two coats for full coverage. This is one of those shades that will highlight and bumps or damage in your nail bed, so if you have any of those I do recommend using a ridge filling base coat first. Photos show two coats of Idle Sails with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Prismatic Mode


Prismatic Mode features a grey leaning purple jelly base filled with small iridescent flakes and tiny pewter holo glitters. The formula easy to work with (especially for a glitter) and took two coats for full coverage. This dries down with some texture so top coat is highly recommended. Photos show two coats of Prismatic Mode with two coats of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Conclusion

These three shades should be around for a while, so you can add them on to a future order. You can find Emily de Molly on

Happy polishing,

Hello readers,
Today I have the nail art and eyeshadow look I wore to Indie Expo Canada to share with you. I was feeling hues of teal and blue and tried to showcase products from some of the attending vendors. Let's take a look at what I came up with.


EOTD

I first learned about Clionadh Cosmetics at last year's IEC and have made several purchases from them since. I went for a blue-green gradient look featuring several of their duochrome shades. Forgive me for the lower than usual photo quality. I took these at the end of the day with my phone because my camera gear was still all packed up from covering the event. On that note, this is after 12+ hours of wear on my hooded lids. These shadows last!


(1) Clionadh Cosmetics Sol + Salamander - Inner Corner
(2) Clionadh Cosmetics Eye Of Newt - Middle Third Of Lid
(3) Clionadh Cosmetics Clairvoyance - Outer Third Of Lid
(4) Clionadh Cosmetics Quill + Hedo Cosmetics Crow - Outer V
(5) Hedo Cosmetics Peach - Above Crease

Other Products Used
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara

Nail Art

Similarly I used a mish mash of Girly Bits Cosmetics polishes in my nail art for the day. I started with Felt With The Heart on my index and pinky fingers and Sea You Next Fall on my middle and fourth fingers. Then I randomly dabbed Talk Turkey To Me, Festival Of Lights and Felt With The Heart overtop of the deep teal creme base on my middle and fourth fingers to get a kind of marbled effect. I added some dry brushed lines using Colour Club What A Drag for a little more texture. Then I used Konad white stamping polish and Emily de Molly plate EDM22 to add the stamped design. Finally, some Girly Bits Glitter Glaze top coat sealed everything up. Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.




For more details on everything that went on at Indie Expo Canada this year, check out my event coverage post from earlier this week.
Happy polishing,
Michelle

Hello readers,
Today I have The Nightlife Collection from Live Love Polish to share with you. This collection features four new shades along with one re-release in shiny foiled metallic finishes. Let's take a look at swatches.

Cake Pop


Cake Pop was previously released as a limited edition gift with purchase. Now it's back as a shade you can purchase. Cake Pop features a rosy pink base filled with tiny silver flecks and holo glitter. The formula was excellent. I only need one thin coat for full coverage and it dried very smooth and shiny on its own, though I added top coat out of habit. Photos show one coat of Cake Pop with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics What A Rush top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




HYPE


HYPE features a clear base filled with tiny vibrant green metallic flecks and tiny scatter holo glitter. The formula was easy to apply, taking two coats for full coverage. However, I did find that I needed to wait a little extra time between coats to avoid dragging. This shade dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of HYPE with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




It's Lit


It's Lit features a clear base filled with pewter and silver metallic flecks and tiny scatter holo glitter. In bright lighting this shade is definitely silver. In shaded lighting it gets a slight gold cast to it. The formula was easy to apply, taking two coats for full coverage. This shade dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of It's Lit with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Life Of The Party


Life Of The Party features a clear base filled with tiny amethyst purple metallic flecks and tiny scatter holo glitter. The formula was similar to that of HYPE, taking two coats for full coverage and requiring a little extra dry time between coats. This shade dries shiny on its own but I added top coat here. Photos show two coats of Life Of The Party with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




All Nighter


All Nighter features a teal tinted base with silver flecks and tiny scatter holo glitter. The formula was easy to apply and very pigmented, requiring one coat for full coverage. This is basically Cake Pop's teal cousin. This shade dries to a shiny metallic finish on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show one coat of All Nighter with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Conclusion

The Nightlife Collection is available now as a set and sold individually. If shiny metallic polishes are your style then there are lots of great options in this set. You can find Live Love Polish on


Happy polishing,

Hello readers,
Harlow & Co recently sent me the new KBShimmer Wanderlust collection to share with you. This collection features shades inspired by a trip to California and draws on colours from nature and west coast living. Let's take a look at swatches.

Hakuna Moscato


Hakuna Moscato features a sheer purple tinted base filled with small metallic rose gold flakes. The formula was easy to apply though I found I did experience a little dragging if I didn't allow for a little dry time between coats. This dries quite shiny and smooth on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show three coats of Hakuna Moscato with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Succ It Up


Succ It Up features a medium blurple base with a strong turquoise flash and a sprinkling of scatter holo shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This shade dries to a satin finish so top coat is recommended if you want a shiny finish. Photos show three coats of Succ It Up with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Meet Me At The Barre


Meet Me At The Barre is a pale pink creme. In some lighting it also leaned a bit peach. The formula was a little bit thick and I found floating the brush a little more than I usually would helped get even coverage. This shade benefits from top coat for a perfect glossy finish. Photos show three coats of Meet Me At The Barre with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Cactus If You Can


Cactus If You Can is a soft medium green with a pink flash and scatter holo shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage, though it was so close after two that those with shorter nails or a less distinct nail line will likely find two is enough. This shade dried to a satin finish so top coat is recommended if you want shine. Photos show three coats of Cactus If You Can with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Wander-full World


Wander-full World is a vibrant medium pink holo. The formula was excellent taking two thin coats for full coverage. This dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of Wander-full World with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Don't Fear The Reefer


Don't Fear The Reefer is a bright mint green holo. Another excellent formula. I used three thin coats here but it was so close after two that if you have shorter nails or a less distinct nail line, two would likely be enough. Photos show two coats of Don't Fear The Reefer with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Rise & Grind


Rise & Grind is a cool toned coffee brown holo. Same great holo formula as the other shades in this collection taking two coats for full coverage. Photos show two coats of Rise & Grind with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Now & Zen


Now & Zen features a medium periwinkle blue base with a strong green flash and a holo silver flecked shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This shade dries down to a satin finish so top coat is recommended for shine. Photos show three coats of Now & Zen with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Conclusion

My personal favorites from this collection are Cactus If You Can, Now & Zen and Succ It Up. I love contrasting shimmers and all thee shades did that really well. The Wanderlust Collection is available now at Harlow & Co. You can find Harlow & Co on


You can find KBShimmer on

Hello readers,
A couple weekends ago I had the chance to attend the second Indie Expo Canada in Toronto, Ontario as part of the official press team. My willpower was certainly challenged by all the goodies for sale and I managed came away feeling semi-responsible. If you weren't able to attend in person, make sure to check out today's other post for a chance to win some of the VIP bag polishes. Right now, let's take a look at who was there and what they had up for grabs.


Alter Ego Body Care Products


Alter Ego was one of the returning brand from last year. While nail polish is their core offering, they also have body care products. The technically designed for perfume faceted polish bottles are always eye catching. You can find Alter Ego Body Care Products on


Bees Knees Lacquer


This was Bees Knees' first time at IEC and I'm really glad they made the journey to join us. This brand has really exploded onto the indie scene and I was able to cross a few shades off of my ISO list. You can find Bees Knees Lacquer on




Beyond The Nail


Toronto-based Beyond The Nail is another returning brand this year. They brought lots of polishes from their permanent collection, their new soft neon cremes and a huge selection of vinyl nail decals. You can find Beyond The Nail on




CANVAS Lacquer


Another Toronto-based returning brand was CANVAS Lacquer. I loved seeing people burst into laughter when reading the shade names of their Simsons Forever collection. Steamed Hams anyone You can find CANVAS Lacquer on




Colors by Llarowe


I didn't quite realize how many brand came back for a second year until I started writing this post, because Colors by Llarowe (CbL) is another one that falls into that category. Their glowing colour changing sign was mesmerizing and highlighted their polish perfectly. You can find Colors By Llarowe on



Clionadh Cosmetics


I first discovered Clionadh Cosmetics at last year's IEC and have been throwing my money at them since. Their duochrome shadows are so shifty and their mattes are super pigmented and easy to blend. This year they debuted their Archeo Palette, the follow up to last year's Paleo Palette. Each and every one is handed painted and labelled which show true dedication to their product. You can find Clionadh Cosmetics on




Cuter Cuticles


Sammy from Cuter Cuticles spent her birthday with us at IEC, and put up with me asking about a multitude of scents that didn't make the cut to bring to the show. Cuter Cuticles' Barrier Butter has become a staple hand care item for me. Their Lemon Cupcake trio, which included a gloss exclusive to IEC, smells amazing. You can find Cuter Cuticles on





Ever After Polish


Ever After Polish was yet another returning vendor from last year. This year's display showcased their brand new polish bottle logo, an expanded range of stamping polishes and their ever popular Cuticle Crelly hand cream. They also had snazzy plastic business cards that double as stamping polish scrapers. Bonus! You can find Ever After Polish on




Fair Maiden Polish


The Fair Maiden makers weren't able to attend in person, but Rebecca did a great job of representing their brand. Along with their neons, they also showcased to upcoming collections which will officially release over the next couple months. You can find Fair Maiden Polish on




Fiendish Fancies


Fiendish Fancies was back this year with polishes inspired by horror movies and TV shows of all kinds. I love the dotted artwork associated with the Survive collection, inspired by The Handmaid's Tale. I was also finally able to snag The Wraith, a polish I've had on my wish list for a whole year.You can find Fiendish Fancies on




Girly Bits Cosmetics


Girly Bits was the official event organizer again this year and put together another amazing expo. Along with lots of permanent products, this year they debuted the new Bridal Bliss collection, showcased three new Concert Series shades and had bins full of prototypes and COTM overpours. I know I was able to get my hands on a couple long discontinued shades that I didn't think I'd ever find. You can find Girly Bits Cosmetics on




Green Glitter


Green Glitter specializes in biodegradable glitter mixes. That means you can be sparkly and environmentally friendly all at the same time. You can find Green Glitter on




Inspired Sense


Relatively new to the indie scene, inspired Sense specializes in bath and body items as well as small batch polishes. My personal favorite product so far? The coffee scented Morning Fix Hand Moisture Bites. They smell amazing and are super convenient. You can find Inspired Sense on



LynB Designs


Fun fact: LynB Designs is the first indie polish brand I ever owned. Their booth features a wide range of shades from their permanent collection. You can find LynB Designs on



My Indie Polish


My Indie Polish is another local indie polish brand. We really do have a great indie community in Ontario. They had a ton of polishes along with some body care items. If you got a VIP bag, make sure to save their business card which has a free shipping code. You can find My Indie Polish on



Native War Paints


Native War Paints made the trip back to Toronto for their second IEC. I really loved the rustic look of their polish displays. There were plenty of deals to be found, including digging through the 'sale' bins which had a mix of pretty much everything. You can find Native War Paints on



Paint It Pretty Polish


Paint It Pretty Polish is another Ontario-based indie brand. Along with some of their permanent shades, they also introduced their new Tetris collection featuring creme and shimmer neon shades. You can find Paint It Pretty Polish on




Rogue Lacquer


Rogue Lacquer is a new brand with lots of experience. Due to moving apart from each other and the complications that come with long distances, the Ever After team decided to split into two. Miranda continued with Ever After Polish and Rachel started Rogue Lacquer. They had their inaugural Steampunk Collection, the brand new Sirens of Summer trio along with a couple of event LEs up for grabs. Looking at what's been released so far, this is a brand to keep your eye on. You can find Rogue Lacquer on



SoGa Artisan Soaperie


SoGa Soaps was back this year with tons of bath and body goodies including soap, scrubs, bath bombs and more. I am particularly excited to try out their new bubble bars, which smell amazing. You can find SoGa Artisan Soaperie on



Terrah Essentials


Terrah Essentials produces small batch soap and body care items with a focus natural ingredients. That Citrus Punch soap in the picture? Yes, it smelled as amazing as it looks. You can find Terrah Essentials on


Turtle Tootsie Polishes


This was Turtle Tootsie Polishes' first time at IEC. They brought a selection of polishes along with their sugar scrubs. They also might win the award for cutest logo ever. Matching turtle stress squishies? Yes, they had those too! You can find Turtle Tootsie Polishes on




Conclusion

And that's a wrap on Indie Expo Canada 2018! Overall this year felt a little calmer and more relaxed than last year. I think that just comes with the experience and lessons learned last year. I came home with a shopping bag full of stuff which I'll be sharing with you over the next few weeks. Now it's time to start planning IEC 2019!
Happy polishing,
Michelle

Hello readers,
Today I have Girly Bits Cosmetics' contribution to Hella Handmade Creation's June release to share with you. This is the third polish from Girly Bits' Harry Potter HHC series. This month's shade was inspired by the love potions for sale in the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes shop. Let's take a look at swatches.



Addicted To Love features a purple leaning pink base with a strong violet to gold shifting flecked shimmer, scatter holo shimmer and pink to gold to green shifting iridescent flakes. The formula was a teeny bit thick but still relatively easy to apply. I needed two coats for full coverage. This dries with the occasional flakie divot so I do recommend top coat for a nice smooth finish. Photos show two coats of Addicted To Love with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics Glitter Glaze top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Addicted To Love, along with shades from the other participating HHC makers will be available for pre-sale from June 14th, 2018 at 12:01AM EDT until June 21st at 11:59PM HST (which, according to google is 5:59AM on June 22nd in EDT). You can find Hella Handmade Creations on

Hello readers,
Today I have the two new KBShimmer shades exclusive to Harlow & Co to share with you. Let's take a look at swatches.

Coral Of The Story


Coral Of The Story features a white crelly base with an assortment of coral, black and rose gold glitters. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This does dry with some texture due to all the glitters so top coat is recommended. Photos show three coats of Coral Of The Story with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Regal-Ize It


Regal-Ize It is a purple crelly base filled with small and medium gold holo glitters. The formula was easy to work with taking three coats for full coverage. This one dries surprisingly smoothly on its own considering the glitters in it, but top coat is still recommended for a perfectly even finish. Photos show three coats of Regal-Ize It with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Conclusion

My personal favorite is Regal-ize It, though that was pretty much guaranteed ... because ... purple. These shades will be available tomorrow, June 15th, 2018, at noon EDT on the Harlow site. You can find Harlow & Co on


In general you can find KBShimmer on

Hello readers,
Today I have the Zoya Sunshine collection for summer 2018 to share with you. This collection features a mix of cremes and shimmers along with a couple sparkly toppers. Let's take a look at swatches.

Missy


Missy is a bubblegum pink creme. The formula was pigmented though a little patchy. Two coats, floating the brush on the second, were needed for full coverage. Though this dries shiny, I do recommend top coat to get a nice smooth finish. Photos show two coats of Missy with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Minnie


Minnie is a pink leaning salmon creme. The formula was similar to that of Missy. Two coats were need for full coverage and I found that floating the brush slightly on the second coat helped give me an even finish. Photos show two coats of Minne with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics Glitter Glaze top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Clementine


Clementine features a salmon base with a fine flecked copper shimmer. The formula was easy to work with though a tad sheer taking three coats for full coverage. The slightly sheer base does allow the shimmer to show through thought which is lovely. Photos show three coats of Clementine with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Sandy


Sandy is a medium pink creme. This shade took two easy thin coats for full coverage and dries to a shiny finish. Photos show two coats of Sandy with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Jack


Jack is a light almond creme. The formula was easy to apply though I recommend waiting a little bit longer between coats to avoid dragging. Two coats were needed for full coverage and this shade dries to a shiny finish. Photos show two coats of Jack with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Ellie


Ellie is a medium fuchsia pink creme. The formula was excellent taking two thin coats for full coverage. Photos show two coats of Ellie with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Marigold


Marigold is a bright saturated orange jelly base with a strong gold flecked shimmer. The formula was excellent and super easy to apply. I used three coats here, but if you have shorter nails or a less distinct nail line two would likely be enough. Photos show three coats of Marigold with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Virginia


Virginia is a bright red leaning orange creme. The formula was very easy to work with and took two thin coats for full coverage. This one dries with a slightly squishy finish which I love. Photos show two coats of Virginia with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Delia


Delia is a lavender purple creme. No issues with the formula. It took two coats for full coverage and dries shiny. Photos show two coats of Delia with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Saldana


Saldana features a mix of blue and violet flecked shimmer with a sprinkling of blue hex glitters in a clear base. The formula was easy to apply though you'll have to fish for the glitters if you want more than one or two on each nail. I also found that some of the larger hex glitters had a little bit of curl to them so you'll want to add top coat over top to smooth everything out. Photos show one coat of Saldana over Delia with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Karen


Karen is a bright orange leaning red creme. The formula was excellent taking two thin coats for full coverage. This dries shiny on its own but I added top coat out of habit. Photos show two coats of Karen with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Nahla


Nahla features a mix of gold, silver and violet flecked shimmer with a sprinkling of gold hex glitters in a clear base. The formula was easy to apply though, and didn't have the slightly curled glitters like Saldana. The flecked shimmer was also gave a lot more coverage than I expected, so you might be able to layer this shade up on its own to a decent amount coverage. Photos show one coat of Nahla over Karen with one coat of Lucky 13 Lacquer Elemental Ward top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




Conclusion

I think your feelings about this collection really depend on your personal colour preferences. If you go for pinks and reds then this has tons of options for you. If, like me, you're more drawn to blues, purples and teals then this collection feels lacking. For a 12 shade collection, I think there was room for a little more colour variety. The Thrive Collection is available now. You can find Zoya on


Happy polishing,

Hello readers,
Today I have April edition of Beautometry's My Mani Box subscription to share with you. April's box featured a mix of nail art supplies, an exclusive polish and hand care. Let's take a look at swatches and the nail art look I put together.

What Was In The April Box?

'Ard As Nails Pizzazz
Soap Dodger Foaming Hand Scrub
Black Loose Glitter
Iridescent Loose Glitter
MoYou London Lace Collection - 05 Stamping Plate
MoYou London Happy Birthday - 02 Stamping Plate


'Ard As Nails Pizzazz is a vibrant pink filled with silver holo flecks and shimmer. The formula was easy to work with taking two coats for full coverage. This shade dries slightly less than shiny so I recommend adding top coat. Photos show two coats of Pizzozz with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics Glitter Glaze top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.




I also used the MoYou London lace stamping plate and the iridescent loose glitter along with two Girly Bits Cosmetics polishes from my collection to create this nail art look. I used a Girly Bits blue holo OOAK as the base. I stamped the lace pattern using Girly Bits Hit and Mist and MoYou London Lace Collection - 05. Then I placed one of the loose glitters at the center of each of the lace designs. Finally, a coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics Glitter Glaze top coat to seal everything up.




Overall this box has a good variety of items, especially if you're trying to grow your stamping plate collection. The Soap Dodger Foaming Hand Scrub was also an item I really appreciate. It has a lovely crisp but sweet scent and uses natural grit (raspberry seeds). You can get the My Mani Box for $35USD per month. If you prepay for a longer sub (3, 6 or 12 months) you'll also get a discounted price. You can find My Mani Box on


Happy polishing,
Michelle
