Look at the magnificence of this beautiful violet with pink iridescence running through. Not only did this wear fabulously for a week but the color is so unique that people noticed. When I was at the nail salon other customers were grabbing my hand. I could have sold a dozen bottles then and there.

Even though I didn’t want to remove this beauty I had to move on and chose POP BEAUTY Nail Glam in POP POOL PARTY. This is the perfect name for this polish. Pop Pool Party has a metallic finish that makes you want go off to an island or a pool for some fabulous fun.

The brush on these polishes is a pleasure to work with. When I get my nails done my nail tech and I always talk about the brush plus I notice how the polish applied. A winner in all ways.

The Pop Beauty Nail Glam that I’m saving for summer sun is PINK PEAK. This shimmery polish is hot as can be. There’s a load of silver glitter in it that is going to be perfect when we actually have sun.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy™ soothes you nails and your senses

Sally Hansen Color Therapy polish

Sally Hansen Color Therapy polish

Sally Hansen nail polish needs no introduction since we already know what a magnificent brand it is. They are the leaders in mass market nail care and a brand that I can always rely on having exceptional color and wear.

press samples

Sally Hansen doesn’t rest on its laurels though since they are always looking for ways to improve their brand. I think they’ve really nailed that with their new Color Therapy™ polishes. These polishes not only look beautiful, wear incredibly well, and are easy to apply but Color Therapy works to nourish your nails.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy™ in Sticks and Stones

Sally Hansen Color Therapy™ in Sticks and Stones

STICKS AND STONES absolutely surprised me. This is the first of the polishes I wore and it blew me away. It’s a dark purple with lovely small flecks of red shimmer in it. If I hadn’t seen the brand I’d have thought it was an indie polish since it’s so unique.

The shimmer likes to hide so you won’t see it all the time but when you do, it will bring a happy smile to your face.

Next surprise for me is THERAPEWTER. This is a metallic polish so it was completely different than Sticks and Stones. It’s a type of pewter (Sally Hansen calls it a deep metallic charcoal) but there’s a lot of green in it so I considered it more of a green than a pewter. Either way to describe it doesn’t take away from the uniqueness of this lovely.

In light that’s not as bright as my nail salon I can see more of the pewter so it’s like getting two colors in one. This wasn’t difficult to remove even though it has this metallic finish and lots of shimmer. It’s not a polish that you can get away with in one coat, two worked perfectly for me.

HAUTE  SPRINGS is my kind of red. I like a bold cool toned red that stands out and lets my nails get noticed.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Haute Springs (sallyhansen.com)

My skin is cool and I have a lot of red in my hands, especially in the winter when I first wore this. This cream polish lasted perfectly for 7 days, no fading and no tip wear.

Last is RED-IANCE, an warm cherry red. This is the perfect pedicure shade too. You’ll radiate with long lasting color with Red-iance.

So what makes Sally Hansen Color Therapy™ something so unusual from the rest of the 467,598,022 nail polishes available? They are a long lasting polish that is meant to last for 10 days but they apply and remove like a regular polish. They have a patented formula that “blends a complex of natural argan, acai, and evening primrose oil to condition weak, dry nails. Argan oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, an antioxidant vital for healthy skin and nails. Acai berry oil is rich in omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids that are valued for nutrition and conditioning in skin and hair care. Evening primrose oil features essential fatty acids that are known to help reinforce hair strength.” Each bottle cap says Argan Oil Formula so you know what you are getting when you go shopping.

As a polish junkie who doesn’t ever want to be without gorgeous colors I give Sally Hansen Color Therapy™ an all thumbs up. —  Marcia

KBShimmer gets this office party started! More from the Office Space Collection

*Hi readers, Lisa here.  I’d like to address that in the original version of this review, I had erroneously used some photos that I neglected to cite properly.  It was my fault, and I simply cannot apologize enough.  I am very, very sorry to the bloggers whose work was not appropriately recognized.  Those photos have been removed, the review has been corrected, and I can guarantee this mistake will never happen again.  Thank you for reading, and for your support. Much love to you all.*

KBShimmer Office Space Collection

I am the queen of neutrals when it comes to manicures, so I like to think that KBShimmer dreamed up the Office Space Collection just for me! Marcia reviewed four of the shades already – Staple Relationship, Take Back Ctrl, Fax of Life, and Supplies Party. Today I have three more heavenly neutrals that are perfect for your office – Caught on Tape, A Hint of Manila, and Makin’ Copies.                samples

KBShimmer Office Space

KBShimmer Office Space

Caught on Tape ($9.25) This is a wonderful milky pink cream. It goes on easily without streaks – I get perfect coverage with just one coat. On me it pulls more pink, but looks a lot lighter on different skin tones.

KBShimmer A HInt of Manila

A Hint of Manila ($9.25) is a vanilla shade that is more like the office party than the office cubicle! The holographic sparkle dries to a textured finish. I know a lot of people love it, but I’m not a fan of textured polish, so I use a clear topcoat for a smooth finish.

Makin’ Copies ($9.25) is a super pretty pale silver with white shimmer. When the light hits just right, it has a linear holo sparkle. This is so great for work – it looks demure, but has the right amount of sass to show you aren’t just a pencil pusher. Love it!

The KBShimmer Office Space Collection is one of my most favorites…now if I can just get my hands on Cubicle Pusher I will happily get up at 5 a.m. every morning to take that trek to work with my gorgeous nails!!  – Lisa

KBShimmer wants to know what your office space is like?

kbshimmer office space

KBShimmer has it all – holiday collections, season collections, birthstone collections and now an Office Space collection. Not only do they have it all but I want it all. They were kind enough to send the polishes which Lisa and I split up though it was extremely hard to let any of them go to her! So far you’ve seen just one of the polishes, Staple Relationship, that I couldn’t resist wearing instantly. Now you’ll get to meet three more that are all different finishes. I can’t wait to hear which you’d love to have on your nails too.

Of the three polishes I wore Take Back Ctrl is the most office friendly. It’s the shade I’d wear during Parent Teacher Conferences for example.

KBShimmer Take Back Ctrl

Take Back Ctrl is a cream that’s described as a dusty rose, mauve leaning shade. On me I noticed much more mauve leaning into a plum.

As usual for KBShimmer it applied like a dream without any pooling. It stayed true for the week though I did add another layer of top coat on the 5th day.

If you like shimmers you’ll love my favorite, Fax of Life. “This dark platinum grey polish pays homage to the fax machine.  We loaded the polish with linear holographic pigment, for a sparkly grey manicure.”

KBShimmer Fax of Life

This is a little bit of heaven for me. The shimmer in it is light as is the holo look. In different lights it looked either light gray or a darker gray. It’s the shine and wearability that made me gaga.

Fax of Life removed as easily as a cream polish does and lasted on me perfectly for a full week. Don’t miss this one – office friendly and party ready.

A totally different texture is Supplies Party. This has what’s called the Birthstone Finish which is a heavy amount of glitter. Often polishes with this much glitter aren’t opaque but Supplies Party was fully opaque in 2 coats on me.

As you can see it’s a warm almost gold polish that’s described as liquid metal. If you work in a totally conservative environment this might be best for the office party. I could wear this teaching and the little girls would be enthralled.

Surya Brasil unleashes exotic animals with their stunning nail polishes

suraya brasil logo

SURYA BRASIL shocked the pants off me with their nail polishes and not because of the exotic animals that could be scary. Rather it’s due to the amazing quality of these nail polishes. I was previously aware of Surya Brasil’s haircare and skincare but I was surprised when I was offered some of the polishes to review. Now though I’m going to be a repeat customer.

Surya Brasil Exotic Animal Polish collection

There are 16 nail polishes in this collection along with 3 nail treatments, each $12. Plus right now there’s a special going for you to get a free pair of earrings with purchase. But you want to buy the polishes for another reason – you’ll totally fall in love with them.

“The Exotic Animals Nail Polish collection is inspired by nature’s wonderful colors to leave your nails beautiful and healthy. There are many vibrant and bright colors, each one dedicated to a specific exotic animal from all over the world.”

Surya Brasil Peacock from the Exotic Animals collection

The two polishes I was sent are gorgeous in totally different ways. Peacock is so aptly named because it has the glorious blues that you fist notice when a peacock spreads its wings. I am a huge fan of metallic polish and this is metallic at its best. There were absolutely no brush marks when applied.

The polish lasted a full week and could have gone on and on. Sometimes the teal was more prominent and other times the blue shined through. It was a pleasure wearing this for a week.

The other polish I have is one that I’m gaga over. It’s so different than anything in my collection. Gold-faced Lion Tamarin is stunning. It’s listed as a bright golden brown but I also see tones of green and bronze at times.

Surya Brasil Gold-faced Lion Tamarin

The animal it was created to honor is just on the verge of extinction. Gold-faced Lion Tamarins are very family-oriented animals: they live in groups and both parents share different tasks to care of the yearly twins.

There are so many reasons to want these in your collection including all the ingredients that they DON’T contain (camphor, DBP, formaldehyde, parabens, toulene). In keeping with its exotic animal theme they are cruelty free with no animal testing or use of any animal product.

Surya Brasil Red and Green Macaw

What’s especially fun about the collection is that the animal that inspired them is pictured on the bottle. You can have your own zoo without harming an animal!

Now that you are aware of these vegan polishes I definitely think it’s time to turn on the wild animal in you.  —  Marcia

Be oh so pretty with PRITI NYC polish

PRITI NYC POLISH: Castle Cactus and Red Parrot Tulip

There’s nothing quite as uplifting as being able to look at your nails and see prettiness. The Beauty Info Zone ladies are basking in prettiness with PRITI NYC Polish sent from Good Earth Beauty. We both were already fans of PRITI NYC but now the fans have been blowing with 1 treatment and 3 beautiful shades. We’ve previously shared neutrals and brights and updated pastels so there’s much to be found in these vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty free line. They name their polishes after similar colored plants and flowers which we find enchanting.

Castle Cactus #593 is not a typical Marcia shade. I don’t wear teals or greens often but this is such a soft color and has the requisite shimmer that I love. This was such a pleasure to wear. There’s a mix of teal and green to create this stunner.

RED PARROT TULIP:

The second polish I have is Red Parrot Tulip #329 which is a beautiful creme polish that glides on. There’s no pooling in my cuticle area even when I apply it myself. The description “deep orange opaque red” is absolutely perfect.

This is a shade that is perfect 365 days of the year and will be a stunner for a pedicure. The color is rich and with 2 coats is fully opaque. It doesn’t stain which many polishes this deep can.

LISA CHOSE Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium and Morning Glory 668

Priti NYC Cuticle Oil

Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium

I actually took one look at my nails and grabbed the Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium instead of a color…the winter just ravages my skin and cuticles.  I needed this oil so badly…it instantly softened all the rough edges and after about three days I had significantly less issues with hangnails.  Thank goodness!

Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Morning Glory 668

I don’t normally go for blue polish but this one was so pretty I couldn’t resist.  It’s a lovely metallic silvery blue shimmer.  I don’t think I have any pastel blue shimmer polishes so this is definitely a welcome addition to my collection.Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668Priti NYC Morning Glory 668

One coat is rather sheer, so it takes two coats to become opaque.  It wears extremely well.  I actually forgot to put on a topcoat, and two coats lasted an entire week before needed one to freshen it up.

How can you beat a natural nail polish? We love that Priti Polishes are safe, non-toxic, and have absolutely no toluene, formaldehyde, or DBP’s. The 12.6 ml. bottle the house the polishes are completely recyclable. Plus all the other fab features:  fast drying, chip resistant, non-yellowing, contain a UV inhibitor, and glossy durability.

The Soy Cuticle Oil with Geranium, Castle Cactus, Red Parrot Tulip, and Morning Glory certainly float our boats!  Head over to Good Earth Beauty and see which Priti NYC Polishes are pretty perfect for you.

Use this Staple Relationship from KBShimmer for the best work you’ll ever do

KBShimmer is ready to make your office life a lot better with 8 polishes from their Office Space collection. These work friendly and fun ready polishes will make the day go a lot faster.

When we received a selection of these KBShimmer polishes I instantly grabbed Staple Relationship, it’s my kind of color.

KBShimmer Staple Remover

KBShimmer Staple Relationship

Just look at that sparkle, just look at that color! Can you blame me for wanting it on my nails instantly? In the bottle Staple Relationship looks like a charcoal metallic shimmer with a purple cast. It has silvery metallic flakes in it. Bright light brings out the amazing colorful shimmer but in regular overhead light you’ll see a much more subtle metallic shade.

Believe it or not the polish can look charcoal or even a little purple. Light and your skintone will affect the tone you see. I see the charcoal and shimmer on my nails.

KBShimmer tells us that this is a crelly with metallic flakes and that it has a medium amount of shimmer. There’s a very slight texture to the polish but very slight.

I love KBShimmer polishes since they wear perfectly on my nails, lasting a full week without a problem. The hardest part of wearing KBShimmer is trying to decide which one to wear next.  —  Marcia
