étoile polish - diamond dust infused

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I have some special polishes to share with you today. étoile polish is infused with diamond dust!

étoile founder, Erin Farber, created a polish line that would be fitting for a momentous occasion like a wedding. She decided to take chic polish colors and infuse them with genuine diamond dust – the perfect complement to the diamond ring. And so étoile was born!

I received the Winter in Central Park Collection and I must say the colors are amazing. Diamonds are definitely a girl's best friend - including in nail polish.

The diamond dust creates an amazing shimmer and shine that adds depth to the polish. The formula was wonderful. It applied smoothly and the dry time was relatively quick. The collection came in this adorable box. I love how the polish bottle is tipped over and is creating the lake.


Frosted Berry - is a deep red berry shade, with a hint of pink, and is infused with real diamond dust. I had to photograph it next to my orchid which started to bloom last week. A splash of color for those winter days. This is two coats.

Asscher - is a glorious winter white shade with tons of shimmer and shine. It's named for the Asscher-shaped diamond. It is a classic shade with a modern shimmer and shine. I used three coats for this shade.

Essie Winter Collection - glamour at its finest

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

The Essie Winter collection is wonderful. I realize many Spring collections are coming out but it is still Winter here and will be for quite a while. Last night the temperatures dipped to 16 below and that wasn't even the wind chill. So it will be a while before I can get Spring fever.

These colors are gorgeous. The formula is great. The price is affordable.

Six stunning colors make this collection a hit for Winter or any time of the year.

Let's move on to the swatches.

Beyond Cozy - is a glitter infused gold metallic polish. This polish applies wonderfully. Two coats provided wonderful coverage.

Butler Please - is a vibrant cobalt blue cream polish. The first coat applied a little streaky but the second coat provided magnificent coverage and a brilliant shine.

Rainbow Honey Sweet Talk Collection

Monday, January 14, 2013

Rainbow Honey is releasing a new collection just in time for Valentine's Day - the Sweet Talk Collection.

The Sweet Talk Collection will be available on Fab.com on January 16th at 11 a.m. EST. The private sale  will run through 11 a.m. January 19th. Not a member of Fab? Join before the sale - it's free to sign up!

Following the Fab.com sale Sweet Talk Collection will be available again on 
http://rainbowhoney.com.

For this trio, Dee - Rainbow Honey's Chief Designer - chose to create two colors that were wearable on their own - Be Mine and Sweet Talk - yet still fun and shimmery. In addition to these two, XOXO adds that extra dimension and spark when you want it - perfect for an accent nail or as a full manicure for extra sparkle!   

I received two of the collection to share with you. XOXO and Sweet Talk. They are quite nice. I think Rainbow Honey has improved its formula. It is not as thick as previous polishes I have tried from the brand. The formula is nice. It has a smooth application and a good dry time. 

Let's move on to the swatches. 

Sweet Talk - is a decadently sweet collection of pastel glitters in a white jelly with hidden shimmer. I really like the multi-color glitter. It reminds me of the candy hearts we traded as children. It can be worn on its own. This is two coats.

XOXO- is a wonderful blend of glitters and flakes in a clear base for easy use over any manicure. I applied it over Barielle Queen for the Day which is the palest of pastel pinks. Look at that shimmer and shine from the flakes.
