Tami Nail Polish - Skibo Sunset swatches, review

Tuesday, December 9, 2014


I am so excited to be sharing a new-to-me polish with you today. I have a gorgeous polish from Tami Nail Polish to share with you today. Tami Nail Polish is a Scottish nail polish brand. It is custom made by Tami Beauty. This is the first polish I have tried from Scotland. And I must say it didn't disappoint me. The color, holographic shine and formula are amazing on this polish.

This polish is called Skibo Sunset. Skibo Castle has history going back to the 12th century. Maybe someday I will be able to visit it and see the gorgeous flowers that are the inspiration for this amazing polish.

Let's take a look.

Skibo Sunset is an amazing holographic magenta shade of pink that is mesmerizing. It applied flawlessly - creamy and smooth. I used two coats and a top coat for these swatches.

I have one more polish from this line to share with you, so be on the lookout. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to try this polish. I am definitely going to be checking out some of the other shades.

All of the Tami Nail Polishes are proudly made in Scotland by the experts at Tami Beauty and then are produced by the same experts and in the same factory as the Leighton Denny range of polishes. They are free of Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Toluene and Formaldehyde and are also cruelty-free.
Polishes are 10mL and retail for £8.99 (You can use this site to calculate the exchange rate, but at this moment, US dollars equate to about $13.50.)

They ship worldwide at £4 per order.

Elevation Polish Darkness Collection swatches, review

Sunday, November 30, 2014

made with Yeti was a Shadow 2
Elevation Polish has done it again and released another stunning collection - the Darkness Collection. Six amazing polishes will be available Dec. 7, 2014. She seems to be consistently outdoing herself with each collection. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share these with you.

Let's take a look.

I will start with the non-collection polish.




The Kek (also known as Kekekabic) is a soft holographic olive/khaki shade that shifts to a pinkish purple shade. The pink shift adds an amazing depth and glow. This polish applies oh-so-easy. The Kekekabic Trail, is also known as "The Kek." It is a hiking trail that runs about 41 miles near Ely, Minnesota. Forty-one miles? I think I will just enjoy the polish instead. This is two coats with a top coat.

There wasn't much sun out when I swatched these. But here it is with the tiny bit of sun that was peeking from the clouds.

Now let's move on to the Darkness Collection. 
 
Darkness of the Arctic 2 is a near black polish with a strong brown tendency. It has gold, bronze and copper shimmer. The shimmer is perfect. The flakes and shimmer are subtle, yet add a stunning optical illusion. It dries perfectly smooth. This is two coats with a top coat.

Lost in the Darkness 2 is a dark forest green holographic polish with soft gold micro shimmer. I think this may be my favorite from the collection. Although I keep changing my mind. This deep scattered holographic polish shines bright in any light. This is two coats with a top coat.

Queen of the Night is a dark blackened purple creme. It almost appears black in low lighting. But the true purple shade of this polish refuses to remain hidden. Add a little light and the purple comes to life. It applies amazingly well. This is two coats with no top coat.

Darling Diva Ladies of a Certain Age collection: swatches, review

Friday, November 28, 2014

Darling Diva Polish has released another stunning collection. The Ladies of a Certain Age collection has six stunning holographic polishes with silver or gold flakes. The names are fun too. For ladies of a certain age - these names may be a bit naughty. 

The flakes definitely complement the holographic sheen on the polishes. They applied easily and the flakies rested flat against the nail.

Let's take a look.

FBS is a gorgeous mid tone purple holographic polish with silver flakes. The holo prisms are vivid and the holo arc is primarily a vivid blue. This is two coats with a top coat.
