Kryolan Nail Color Swatches and Review

Kryolan Nail Color

If you are a Face Off aficionado like I am, or you are into special effects makeup, you have probably heard of Kryolan Professional Make-Up. But did you know they also have a nail color line?

Kryolan Nail Color now comes in twenty-two shades, and they also have a base coat and top coat. And guess what? These are normally $13.50 but they are all on sale right now for $9.95 until September 30th.

One quick note. I was sent three shades but it turns out Inspired (the blue one) actually had leaked out so the bottle was empty. Therefore there is no swatch, sorry about that!

Zoya Ultra PixieDust for Fall 2014

Zoya Ultra PixieDust for Fall 2014

Zoya Ultra PixieDust for fall 2014 has arrived and yes, this is a new version of the popular PixieDust formula!

This time we have Ultra PixieDust, which features super fine micro-glitter as well as larger hexagonal glitter for more of a “3D” effect. You still have the texture and you still have the sparkly, yet kind of matte finish.

These are as easy to apply as all the rest of the PixiDust shades. Just two coats covers and they dry pretty quickly. Of course you can add a top coat to shine them up a bit, but since these are extra glittery, you might need two coats of top coat to get them completely smooth.

Nail Art Wednesdays with Let Them Have Polish – How To: Easy Shattered Waves – I’m Bringing Crackle Back

Nail Art Wednedsays

You know what time it is, it’s time for another edition of Nail Art Wednesdays with Let Them Have Polish! What does she have in store for us today?

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Oh yes… Yes, I definitely busted out a shatter/ crackle polish for this week’s breakdown. This past week I sat down to organize and purge my ridiculous stash. This meant I’d get to go through all of my polishes. As tedious of a task as it was, it felt like shopping my own stash…. And then I came upon my crackle and shatters Helmer drawer and had a “holy hell” moment… Actually several of them… First one was realizing just HOW many bottles of shatter/crackle polish I have… A LOT. The second was amazement that they all still worked, that they had not gone solid as some shatters are notorious for doing. The third was remembering the utter hype when these made a comeback in 2011, stores could not keep them stocked… And as much as we like to deny it now, the bloggersphere lost their collective s%^t over all the new color options and finishes made available to us in this “earth shattering” finish back then. So I thought it would be fun to bust out a shatter to show you guys that they can still be stylish (ish?).

The first step is to paint your tips with your selected base color. I went with O.P.I Did it on ‘Em from the Nicki Minaj collection. I wanted this shade to have a touch of retro feel so this odd shade of vibrant chartreuse creme seemed fitting.
