Have you heard of Sheswai Lacquer yet? I reviewed them awhile back and now they have three new colors out for spring/summer.
Sheswai is big-3 free and the caps are made from sustainably harvested wood from family owned tree farms. In fact, they are the first ones in the industry to use this type of cap, reducing the need for plastic. Not only are they eco-conscious, the caps are really nice, and possibly my favorite ones from any brand!
Oh and did you see how pretty the design on the front of the bottle is?
Zoya Beach and Surf are the new summer collections for 2012, inspired by the sea and sand!
There are twelve new colors in all, six in each collection. Beach focuses on mostly creme colors and Surf is all about foils!
The formula for Beach overall was pretty good. There were some slight streaking issues with a couple, but they mostly worked out. All but one were two coats. The formula with the Surf colors was great. Creamy amazing foils. Applied like butter, and all just two coats.
Ready to get your bright pop of summer color on?
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has a new collection out called The Garden Collection this spring/summer.
This collection features five new Nail Lacquers (and a re-promote), five Loose Colour Concentrates, and six new Lip Tars. It was inspired by poisonous and psychotropic plants (oooh groovy!) as well as more earthy tones found in nature.
Recently OCC changed their bottle shape from a soft square to this harder rectangle shape. I like the way they look and line up. However, and this only really applies to those blogging about nail polish, the shape makes it really hard to hold and get an attractive photo of your hands! So I apologize in advance for the lame finger angles, but I did my best with my short digits. 😉
Spoiled Nail Color is a line by Wet n Wild and is sold exclusively at CVS. There are 72 (!!) shades in this line out now, which is pretty great.
The colors and finishes go from cremes, to neons, to shimmers to glitters. There are nudes, blues, greens, blacks and everything in-between!
Today I have four of the shimmery shades and soon, some of the neons.
One thing I will say is that the brushes that come with these are weird and frequently wonky. They are cut at a strange angle and some of them had super long brush strands sticking out that I had to yank out. Not the easiest brushes to work with but then again, they’re only $1.99 each so…you get what you pay for in this case.
