Illamasqua Imperfection Nail Varnish Swatches and Review

Illamasqua Imperfection Nail Varnish

The Illamasqua Imperfection Nail Varnish shades came out a couple months ago but it took moving heaven and earth for me to receive them thanks to the Royal Mail!

This collection is all about celebrating imperfections and showing everyone what makes you unique and interesting.

All of these shades are speckled glitters. They all have black micro-glitter and other small black glitter pieces. Some have a bit more than others. They are all just two coats for coverage and the glitter seems to stay where you put it, yahoo!

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.

Cult Nails In the Garden Collection Swatches and Review

Cult Nails In The Garden

Cult Nails In the Garden is a new spring collection featuring five new shades in various finishes.

In the Garden is really a perfect set of shades for spring. It’s very reminiscent of what is actually in MY garden blooming right this second!

There are three wax finish shades here, which dry matte. They are thicker and a bit harder to work with but not impossible. They look great either matte or with a top coat and I’ve shown you both below.

Misa I Do Collection for Spring 2013 Swatches & Review

Misa I Do Collection

The Misa I Do Collection is new this spring and perfect for the upcoming busy wedding season!

This collection features six new shades, mostly sheer, soft, yet buildable at the same time. It might not be the most electric, exciting collection of colors on earth, but they are all really pretty nonetheless.

The formula was mostly really thick yet not hard to work with. Most were three coats.

Zoya PixieDust Swatches and Review

Zoya PixieDust

Zoya PixieDust is the latest collection from the brand for spring, and it’s not like anything we have seen from Zoya before – it’s textured!

Indeed, I think we are going to be seeing a whole ‘lotta textured polish in the near future, and I for one am on board!

PixieDust features six new shades in the pebbled, sand-like finish. It’s a rather fine texture, so no worries about your nails looking like they have large chunks of sand stuck to them! It’s finer and not as gritty as say the OPI Liquid Sand ones.

No base or top coat required, and you get a matte yet still sparkly finish. I used three coats on the first three shades, and then two coats on the last three (the darker shades).
