Dreams Nail Lacquer Swatches, Review and Special Promo Code!

Dreams Nail Lacquer

It’s Friday afternoon are you ready for some holographic glitters? Let’s do it!

Dreams Nail Lacquers are a new line from Dreams Cosmetics. Dreams Cosmetics is a line of nail polishes and nail care items and can be found on FabulouStreet’s website. This is where I bought my Nfu Oh shades many moons ago. Their nail enamels are big 3-free and cruelty free.

Dreams has three “collections” right now and today I’ve got some from their Horoscope collection. I’ve also got a great deal going on with them for the next month, so stay tuned until the end of the post for that information!

All of these shades are glitters. They are all in a clear base, but are really glittery, so you can get full coverage with three coats on their own. Or you could layer them. They all feature one or two micro-glitter shades along with larger hex holographic glitter and some also contain micro-holographic glitter. I swatched most of them over a plain black but I also did one on its own so you can see what that looks like.

piCture pOlish Atomic by Samarium’s Swatches

piCture pOlish Atomic by Samarium's Swatches

Happy Monday morning!

piCture pOlish Atomic by Samarium’s Swatches is a somewhat complex silvery white glittery sparkly shade.

This shade was created by the lovely Sarah from the blog Samarium’s Swatches, of course. She was inspired by the element Samarium, which is a hard silvery colored metal. When it’s exposed to air it oxidizes into a grey/gold powder, which helps explain the shimmer in the polish. So scientific!

The great thing about this shade is it can be worn on its own or layered over many other shades to create gorgeous effects! Sarah shows you a bunch of layering options on her initial post about the shade here.

NARS Pierre Hardy Nail Polish Collection Swatches and Review

NARS Pierre Hardy Nail Polish

The NARS Pierre Hardy Nail Polish collection is new and was inspired by his summer 2013 shoe collection. Yep, he’s a shoe designer! I had no idea who he was until I saw the press release. Oops.

What is super cute about this collection is that the nail polishes come in a mini “shoe box” and as a pair. Inside are two complementary shades and also a dust bag (which his shoes also come with). Cute idea!

There are six pairs in all to choose from.

This is how they look inside with the dust bag snug in the middle.

Hard Candy Crystal Confetti Swatches and Review

Hard Candy Crysdtal Confetti

Hard Candy Crystal Confetti is another new collection from the brand that is just out only at Walmart.

Crystal Confetti features nine new multi-colored, multi-shaped glitters suspended in a colored base.

Let me tell you now, contrary to how the Candy Sprinkles were, these are not at all easy to work with. They’re thick, you get huge clumps of multi-shaped glitter all at once, and just they’re basically a hot mess. These are the kind where you definitely have to place the glitter where you want it because it tends to all wipe off or wipe to the tip of your nail with each coat. Argh!
