Deborah Lippmann Punk Rock Collection for Fall 2013

Deborah Lippmann Punk Rock

Tomorrow might be the first day of summer officially, but today is my first fall 2013 post!

The Deborah Lippmann Punk Rock Collection was previewed at the Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week and was inspired by the Grimms’ fairy tales inspired fashion of designer Lela Rose.

These aren’t just regular cremes or shimmer, they are textured and matte, which as you know, is super on-trend right now. I for one was really excited to try these out and I am really pleased with them. In fact, I think they are all totally awesome because I love textured polish still and I adore these unique shades.

ncLA Sweet Revenge Summer 2013 Collection Swatches and Review

ncLA Sweet Revenge

ncLA Sweet Revenge is a new three-piece summer 2013 collection.

If you aren’t yet familiar with ncLA they are a 5-free brand based in Los Angeles, CA. And yes that includes cruelty free as well.

Sweet Revenge was inspired by a day at the carnival. You know, when you eat light and fluffy cotton candy, ice cream with sprinkles and all sorts of tasty, sugary treats!

a-england Burne-Jones Dream Swatches and Review

a-england Burne-Jones Dream

a-england Burne-Jones Dream is a new collection featuring four amazing holographic shimmery shades (with a 5th to come!).

But who is Edward Burne-Jones? He was a British painter who did a series of painting between 1885-1890 called The Legend Of Briar Rose. I happen to think this makes an excellent inspiration for a-england nail shades!

As usual with this brand the formula is so incredibly perfect. One coat seems like it will be too sheer, but after the second completely creamy one, everything is opaque, even and perfect.

Precision Oasis Collection Swatches and Review

Precision Oasis

The Précision Oasis collection features six subdued mellow shades, but don’t be fooled, there are some stunners in here!

It’s been quite awhile since I have reviewed any shades from Précision. Since 2009 in fact! They are a really great brand but not super easy to find. I’ve never seen them in person, but you can find them online. And the price is definitely right!

Précision has been in business for 30 years now. They have over 80 shades and are big 3-free and cruelty free.

Revlon Chroma Chameleon Swatches and Review

Revlon Chroma Chameleon

Revlon Chroma Chameleon is a new limited edition collection which features eight duo and multi-chrome metallic shades.

I had my eyes peeled for these for awhile and finally spotted these five at a Rite Aid near me. They should be at Walgreens/Rite Aid and CVS (and possibly Meijer and Harmon, which we don’t have in the Bay Area).

The three I didn’t get were Aquamarine, Gold and Cobalt.

The formula with these was decent, not perfect. Since they are metallic they tend to be a little brush-stroke-y. Most were just two coats but two I used three.
