China Glaze Off Shore Summer 2014 Collection swatches and review

Wednesday, May 28, 2014


China Glaze is releasing a new collection for summer 2014. This Off Shore collection is definitely on target with its  eclectic palette of 12 new hot primary colors and pops of electric brights in rich cream finish. Whether hitting the surf, paddle boarding along the coast, or lounging poolside, there’s an eye-catching shade to match any mood or outfit. 

I am excited to be able to share this China Glaze collection with you. The formula is great and most polishes only took two coats for complete coverage. They also work great for water marbling. 

Let's jump right in to the swatches. These have two coats and a top coat unless I otherwise noted.  But first, let me show you the water marble I created with some of the colors.

Glam Polish - Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend collection

Thursday, May 22, 2014


Glam Polish - just the mention of the name can put me in a polish frenzy. I have the Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend Collection to share with you today. It is inspired by the iconic screen siren Marilyn Monroe.

There are six glamorous-intense-sparkly-holographic-Marilyn-worthy shades with a unique mix of micro glitter and glass flecks. The polishes apply flawlessly and two coats provide a mesmerizing manicure. I used a top coat for each of these swatches. It adds an amazing shine to these stunning polishes.

Let's take a look!


Bye Bye Baby just maybe my favorite of the collection. It is an amazing aqua blue that shimmers like tropical blue waters. The song Bye Baby Baby is from the 1953 Monroe film "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."

Salon Perfect Nail Art Kits and In Bloom Duos make nail art easy, fun

Wednesday, May 21, 2014


Salon Perfect introduces Bloom in Color, a collection of nail art essentials including 2-packs of nail polish in the hottest shades, 3-pack nail art liners, and nail art kits. And I am excited to be able to share some of these duos and nail art kits with you! 

For the first look I used Baby Blues from the Bloom 5 duo and the Matte FX from the Lacquer Basics Due. Baby Blues is a perfect sky/baby blue that looks fun mattified. I applied two coats of Baby Blues and applied one coat of Matte FX. Then using a dotter and nail art brush, I applied a little textured design with the same color. Baby Blues needs to be applied evenly to use the Matte FX over so it doesn't show any uneven areas.


I like the subtle look of this nail art.

For the second look I used the Salon Perfect Back to Black nail art kit. It has four different styles of black glitter. I used the larger diamond shapes and the holographic fine glitter for this look. I applied the glitter over Smooth Sailing - a bright blue from the In Bloom 4 Duo.


I love the way the black glitter looks over the bright blue polish. You can see the holographic shimmer in the loose polish.

Every Beauty Cosmetic Tool Organizer review, giveaway


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

If your purse is like mine, you are going to love this product. I drop cosmetics into my purse and they immediately drift away into the same never never land that socks trying to escape the dryer run away to - never to be seen again.

The Every Beauty Cosmetic Tool Organizer is an item that is going to keep those lip liners, eye liners and brushes close at hand. Simply snap up to eight items into the slots and the organizer will keep them from sinking into the Bermuda Triangle of your purse.

I snapped eight thin cosmetic tools into my organizer and dropped it into my purse. After lunch I was walking to the office restroom to freshen my makeup and digging into my purse to save a few precious seconds. It worked! With a quick swipe of my hand I found and retrieved it from my overloaded bag.

Getting the eighth item to snap in place was tough the first time. But now that I have used it for a few days, it snaps in place with no trouble and stays snugly in position. The crystals on the ends make it look glitzy.

Let's take a look!
