OPI California Dreaming Collection Swatch and Review

Are y'all having a good summer?  It's getting really hot in Kentucky!

I've been rocking a lot of bright pinks and oranges this summer and the OPI California Dreaming Collection provides a lot of these shades!

The OPI California Dreaming Collection features 12 new hues in classic Nail Lacquer and Long-Wear Infinite Shine formulas.

All of my swatches below are shown in two coats.
The formulas and consistency of these are great and they each applied well.


Feeling Frisco
"This nude's bound to put you in a Bayful mood."


Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia
"Finding the perfect peach is a tall order."


Excuse Me, Big Sur!
"This rose may be soft, but it's not afraid to speak up."


Time For a Napa
"It's always the right moment for this bubbly hot coral."


Malibu Pier Pressure
"This cotton candy Pink has a very persuasive vibe."


GPS I Love You
"I couldn't have pinked a sweeter traveling companion."


This is Not Whine Country
"The merlot the merrier I always say."


Santa Monica Beach Peach
"Go ahead and hit the beach, this punchy orange has your back."


Me, Myselfie & I
"But enough about me, doesn't this coral look good in my selfie?"


To the Mouse House We Go!
"This magic red is for kissable lips, polka dot bows and tempting applies."


Sweet Carmel Sunday
"You're always a treat in this glistening gold."


Don't Take Yosemite for Granite
"Of quartz not!  Everyone appreciates this shimmering slate."

All of these shades were easy to use and had great formulas.  These are the type of shades I'm enjoying more this summer, especially the oranges.

I paired Feeling Frisco and Sweet Carmel Sunday (which I absolutely love) for this fun nail art look.


The California Dreaming Collection by OPI Infinite Shine will retail for $12.50 at Professional Salons, as well as Beauty Brands, beautybrands.com, Chatters, Dillard's, Regis, Sally Beauty, ULTA, ulta.com, and Macy's.

OPI is guaranteed only when purchased through authorized professional beauty outlets and prestige stores, not from a drugstore, supermarket, mass outlet, or other unauthorized sources.

Zoya Wanderlust Collection Swatch and Review

The Zoya Wanderlust Collection for Summer 2017 is packed with full coverage creams and beautiful shimmery shades.

This collection is a great selection for summer.


All of the formulas are just what I expected from Zoya, perfect and opaque.  Each of my swatches are shown in two coats plus top coat.  I didn't have any issues with any of the formulas.

Zoya Winnie
"A soft watermelon pink cream."

Zoya Scout
"A shimmering moss green."


Another great benefit of these full coverage creams is that they stamp so well.  In this nail art look, I used a base of Cora stamped with Sonja.  I love how this turned out.


The Zoya Wanderlust Collection is available now at Zoya.com!

Which ones will you be picking up?

Madam Glam Platinum Collection Swatch and Review

Hey everyone!  I hope you all are having a great week!  I'm really excited for the holiday weekend.

Today, I have Madam Glam's Platinum gel collection to show you all.

These are packed with glitters and look like a party on the nail.  Some are more opaque than others.  Let's take a look.


Precious Stone
Orchid with silver glitters.

The base is clear on this one and I built it up in three thin coats.  This one would also look really pretty over an orchid metallic base.


Hip Hip Hip
Brownish/bronze with silver glitters.

This one is very opaque.  My swatch is shown in three coats, but it looked good in just two.


Lil' Sis
Light purple leaning pink with silver glitters.

This is one that has more of a clear base.  My swatch is shown in three coats.  However, I think this would also look great over a similar base color.


Piranha
Red with silver glitters.

This one is also in a clear base and I built it up in three coats.  Love this combination of glitters!


Emotion
Cinnamon brown with silver glitters.

This one is my favorite!  This one built up in two coats; however, my swatch is shown in three.  The base is more tinted than the others and I just overall love this one!


Popular Boo
Gunmetal and light silver.

The base is clear and the glitters aren't as dense as the other gels in this collection.  I think this would look awesome over a chrome gel.


Overall, I really like these.  They're different from any other gels I own.  Have you tried any from this collection?

The Madam Glam Platinum Collection can be found at MadamGlam.com.  They are always having amazing sales, but you can also use my code TPP30 for 30% off.

Type in Madam Glam in my search bar and take a look at all my other Madam Glam swatches!

Posh Paints Nail Lacquer Celestial Wonders Collection Swatch and Review

Hey everyone!  Are you a fan of flakies?  Sure you are!  I have Posh Paints Celestial Wonders Collection to show you today, packed with six flakies.



Flaming Star Nebula
"A multi-chrome flake that shifts from violet-pink-gold in a clear base with micro holo glitter, color shifting glitters, and a purple shimmer."

My swatch is shown in three coats plus top coat.  The formula on this and all the Celestial Wonders Collection are on the thicker side, this doesn't bother me and I prefer them that way.  However, you do want to make sure you let each coat dry a good amount of time before applying the next.



Fire Nebula
"A multi-chrome flake that shifts from red-bronze-copper in a clear base with micro holo glitter, color shifting flitters, and a copper shimmer."

My swatch is shown in three coats plus top coat.



Crab Nebula
"A multi-chrome flake that shifts from lime-blue-gold in a clear base with micro holo glitter, color shifting glitters, and a gold shimmer."

My swatch is shown in three coats plus top coat.



Eskimo Nebula
"Red-gold-green color shifting flakes in a clear base with color shifting glitters and micro holo glitters."

My swatch is shown in one coat over Posh Paints Enter Sandman.



Wings of a Butterfly Nebula
"Blue-green-gold color shifting flakes in a clear base with color shifting glitters and micro holo glitters."

My swatch is shown in one coat over Enter Sandman.



Little Gem Nebula
"Green-blue-fuchsia-gold color shifting flakes in a clear base with color shifting glitters and micro holo glitters."

My swatch is shown in one coat over Enter Sandman.




I absolutely love this collection and the combination of glitters.

These will be priced at $11.00 each/$61.00 for the set.  These will release Sunday May 28th at 5pm at Posh Paints!
