The Devil Wears Polish Thermal Swatches and SALE

PicMonkey Collage2

The weather is warming up and the color of my nails can prove it!  Today I have three super cute thermal polishes to show you from my friend Tami at The Devil Wears Polish.  For those of you who aren’t familiar, thermal polishes change colors depending on the temperature.  This is especially fun when your nails are longer and you can get a two-toned gradient effect.  …but you don’t have to have long nails to enjoy thermals!  I still find myself constantly checking to see, “What color are they now?!” 🙂

The Devil Wear Polish is having a Mother’s Day SALE through tonight!  Use code: MOMSDAY for 25% off your order of $20+!  This promos last until Sunday 5/11 at midnight CT so don’t  miss out!

Silly Lilly is a thermal crelly that is pink when warm and purple when cold.  The color change on this one is very dramatic and super reactive to the temperature changes.   This one is so cute and is full of pretty pink and violet flaky shimmer that really shines in the sun.  I used three coats of Silly Lilly and my Vapid Lacquer top coat in these pictures.

Patty Who? is a fun green thermal jelly that changes from grass green when cold to lime green when warm.  It is loaded with different sizes of scattered holo particles and spectraflair so this one is super sparkly!  The formula was great and I used two thin coats of Patty Who? with my top coat in these pictures.

And last but certainly not least is Sweet Pea, my favorite!  Sweet Pea is a thermal linear holo that shifts from light purple when cold to light pink when warm.  Just like all of Tami’s linears, the formula was awesome. and I used two thin coats and a top coat in these pictures.

All three of these and many more are available right now at The Devil Wears Polish and until Sunday 5/11 at Midnight CT use code: MOMSDAY for 25% off your purchase over $20!  All of the polishes are now made with a 5-free suspension base, yay!

Sweet Tea Polish Review

Sweet Tea Polish - A Group Shot

I have a beautiful set of polishes to show you from Sweet Tea Polish.  I love this name, Sweet Tea Polish colors are inspired by the Sweet South.  Nothing reminds me more of the South than a cold glass of really sweet iced tea.   We had the nicest Southern neighbor growing up that hooked my family onto iced tea and to this day my parents have several jugs in their fridge at all times. 🙂  Anyway, enough about tea, I love these polishes!

Darah hand mixes all of her polishes using carefully selected pigments, micas and glitters.  Sweet Tea Polishes are 3-free, made without Toluene, Formaldehyde and Dibutyl Phthalate.  I was sent a blogger package with 5 polishes to review and a cute little surprise of handmade hair ties!  …I actually used them while doing my nails, it was perfect!  Everything was packaged up so cute, you can really feel the love put into these products.  All of these polishes went on really great with quick drying time.  In all of my pictures I have on 2 coats with a top coat.  I am so excited to add these to my collection, take a look…

Daisy Dukes is a frosty blue with white, blue and silver glitters.  Yes, pretty much exactly the color of those coveted cut-off jean shorts, so cute! 🙂

Black Eyed Susan is a frosty orange bronze with black and yellow glitters.  I love big circle glitters and the black glitters make it look just like the Black Eyed Susan flowers you see on the side of the road.

Gramma’s Grape Jelly is a sheer purple with red and purple glitters.  She could not have more perfectly captured the look of fresh homemade grape jelly with the skins in it and everything!

Sweet Tea Polish - Grammas Grape Jelly 1 Sweet Tea Polish - Grammas Grape Jelly 2 Sweet Tea Polish - Grammas Grape Jelly 3

Kiss My Bass is a sheer teal with holographic blue and green glitters. O…M…G…!!!  This one is insane and is definitely one of my all time favorite colors!  …and not just from this set!  Check out the depth in the glitters and this is only 2 coats!  The base is teal, but it gleams emerald, gold and blue.  Love, love LOVE!

Shoofly Pie is a shimmery molasses brown with a suede finish.  I love browns and this one is so pretty!  This is my first suede finish and I love the soft shimmer it gives.  This one reminded me of cake or brownie batter …and that’s never a bad thing. 😉

Seven and Parker Polish Review

Seven and Parker - A Group Shot

I can’t even tell you how excited I was to receive this awesome blogger package from Seven and Parker of NINE minis to review!  Six of them are holos which is my new favorite finish!  …but what I love so much about reviewing products is getting to try things I might not have chosen my self …and I totally fell in LOVE with the lighter shades in this set!

Seven and Parker is a great indie polish company that will eventually expand to a full cosmetic line.  All of Seven and Parker’s polishes are 5-free, made without Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor!  Whoohoo!  I only have 2 other 5-free brands and am so excited to add another to my collection.   I seriously loved all of these.  The formula on every one was awesome and drying time was great.  I have 3 coats on with a top coat in all of my pictures, although the holos were so smooth, I could have gotten away with 2 coats.  Ok, are you ready for tons of pretty pics?

Blaylock is a deep black with a hint of blue holographic nail polish.  “Elegance meets Class in a way never imagined before.”  This one really changes depending on the light your in from black to blue or even purplish.  So pretty, I don’t have any other colors like this!

Copper Mines is a Holographic Copper Brown.  “When all else fails and you want that nice shade of vintage elegance.”  My favorite colors are brown and orange, I think I squealed when I saw this one.

Deryn is a holographic blue with microfine glitter.  “Inspired from a robin’s eggs. This lovely blue is light and airy.”  Such a pretty blue!  Check out the last picture showing how gorgeous just one coat looks.

Check out how versatile this polish is!  In this next picture I have on one thin coat with three coats on my accent nail.  It is like having 2 colors in one and they are both gorgeous!

La Vie en Rose is a Rose Holo.  “For those of you that want something more subtle than a Hot Pink, yet closer to actual roses.”   So pretty, the perfect dark pink.

Seven and Parker - La Vie En Rose 1 Seven and Parker - La Vie En Rose 2 Seven and Parker - La Vie En Rose 3 Seven and Parker - La Vie En Rose 4

Sally is a holographic purple that pulls blue and gray.  Named after The Pumpkin King’s Love, this purple is the perfect violet holo with lots of tiny micro specs in it.”  …Which is fun for me because this is my sons favorite Halloween movie and we are actually watching it right now!

Seven and Parker - Sally 1 Seven and Parker - Sally 2 Seven and Parker - Sally 3 Seven and Parker - Sally 4

Peek A Boo is a nude holo.  “Simple, Elegant and goes with everything. Need we say more?”  This may have turned out to be my unexpected favorite!

Seven and Parker - Peek A Boo 1 Seven and Parker - Peek A Boo 2 Seven and Parker - Peek A Boo 3 Seven and Parker - Peek A Boo 4

Carter is a pewter pearl gray.  “A color unlike any other. Get ready for the looks it will bring.”  Such a perfect silver!  I can’t wait to combine this with other colors like gold and red for the holidays.

Seven and Parker - Carter 1 Seven and Parker - Carter 2 Seven and Parker - Carter 3 Seven and Parker - Carter 4

Dream A Little is a light shade than when added as a coat to other colors creates incredible effects.  “Dream a Dream and add a little bit of reality for an amazing combination that you will never forget.”  I couldn’t stop thinking bridal when I saw this one.  It is so pretty, a light pearl that gleams gold gold gold!  It can be worn alone, but can also be used as an amazing top coat to add a pearly gold sheen to any color.

Seven and Parker - Dream A Little 1 Seven and Parker - Dream A Little 2 Seven and Parker - Dream A Little 3

Pizazz is crelly with lot of different sizes, shapes and fun colors of glitter.  “A Party you might say!!! …For those with a dazzling style and vigorous spirit.”  I love crellies and this one is so cute.  It’s like a party popper bursting open or confetti flying everywhere, Weee!

Seven and Parker - Piazz 1 Seven and Parker - Piazz 2 Seven and Parker - Piazz 3 Seven and Parker - Piazz 4

Aren’t these amazing?  You can snag these for yourself at the Seven and Parker Store and keep up with all of the news and specials on Facebook.  Thank you so much Mitzy for allowing me to test and review these wonderful polishes, I can’t wait to see what you create next!

Polished Expression Custom Nail Wraps Review

Polished Expression 0001

I have the most BEAUTIFUL nail wraps I have ever seen to share with you today and the best part is they are HANDMADE!

Deb over at Polished Expression Designs makes a variety of custom wooden home and wedding decor using reclaimed wood and materials.  Her products are so cute with a rustic shabby chic style.  She also makes stunning custom nail wraps using real nail polish!  I love the marbling nail art technique but have absolutely no interest in trying to do it myself, so when I saw her nail wraps I was really intrigued!

She makes them with real nail polish and instead of using glue or heat like other wraps, they just adhere to your regular wet base coat.   I bought a set of 12 in the Chocolate Truffle design and Deb threw in a bunch of other fun Fall colors for me to review too, yay!  I’m so glad she did, because I ended up really loving some of the other colors she sent!  I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous about the application, what if I mess it up?  I didn’t want to waste any!  After watching a tutorial that Lacquer is the Best Medicine did, I was super excited  and couldn’t wait for them to arrive.

Polished Expression 0004

They came laid out on wax paper and are really easy to use.  First choose which wrap you want and trim it to a bit larger than your nail.  Then paint your nail with base coat or polish and while the polish is still tacky, peal the wrap off the paper, smooth it onto your nail and press down around the sides with an orange stick to seal the edges.  Once your base coat is dry, then peal off the excess around your nail and clean up the edges.

I actually did pretty good my first time, but you will see that I got better at cleaning the edges as I went.  I tried it first on my natural nails, then on my press-ons, and liked them both.  You can use these as a whole manicure or just on an accent nail which gives you lots of options.   There are quite a few color schemes you can choose from and Deb offers custom designs too, so shoot her a message and see what she can do for you.

OK, are you ready for tons of pics?
