The Devil Wears Polish: Chocolate Lovers Reborn Review (plus No More Butterflies LE Fundraiser!)

Chocolate Lovers Reborn

“Brown colored polish and rainbows on chocolate” is what I’ve been singing in my head to the tune of My Favorite Things this week.  I know, I’m a dork, but I’m just SO excited about the latest collection from The Devil Wears Polish!  Tami revamped last years Chocolate Collection and added linear holo to eight yummy chocolate brown colors!  Yay, Holo all the things!   Brown, Holo, Polish, Chocolate …this collection seriously is a list of my favorite things and Tami sent me a couple to try out and review for you, yay!  I used two coats and my Vapid Lacquer Topcoat in all of these pictures.  The formula for both of them was nice, creamy and dried fast.

Chocolate Cupcake is a rich brown with a nice dose of linear holo.  I LOVE this color so much!  It really is the color of a yummy chocolate cupcake (with lots of frosting, of course!) 🙂 or a milk chocolate bar.

White Chocolate Caramel Cappuccino is a pretty taupe color with tons of linear holo fire.  Mmmm, white chocolate coffees are my favorite!  This one is so holo-y it even shines in low indoor natural lighting, so pretty!

The Chocolate Lovers Reborn Collection can be bought individually for $12 or as a set for $84.  Check out the complete collection HERE, along with all of the other pretties in the shop.

Another stunning polish in her shop that you don’t want to miss out on is No More Butterflies, a light teal-blue linear holo.  This one looks amazing and I already ordered mine! 🙂

No More Butterflies

This is a limited edition fundraiser polish to benefit a cause that is very close to Tami’s heart.  $2 from each bottle sold will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation of America in an effort to raise awareness and provide education about how to care for someone who is experiencing a seizure.  Ensuring that teachers, students and friends know what to do and how to help when a seizure occurs is so important and will ease the anxiety and calm those nervous butterflies of the children who experience seizures as well as their parents.   This beauty will only be available until September 5th, 2014 …2 more days!  Don’t miss out!

To learn more about the Epilepsy Foundation of America, you can visit their website here: http://www.epilepsy.com/  If you’d rather make a donation without the polish purchase, you can do so HERE.

Press Sample:  The polishes in this review were given to by Tami of The Devil Wears Polish in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are my own.

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! Follow along on Facebook for the latest news, updates and promos.

The products in this review are a combo of blogger samples sent for my honest review and personal purchases.  All opinions are my own.

The Devil Wears Polish Customs, Holos & Anarchy

If you could have someone create any type of nail polish for you, what would you have them make?  Someone asked me this question a couple months ago and I thought of a few ideas.  Literally the next day The Devil Wears Polish posted a picture of her chocolate holo Nice & Toasty and I was floored!  This was exactly what I was picturing as one of my ideas!

Nice and Toasty 1

The Devil Wears Polish – Nice & Toasty

That got me thinking, and I contacted Tami about another idea that I thought she would do best and Indian Summer was born.  This polish is really special and is made in remembrance of Tami’s dad.  I feel very honored to have been able to collaborate with her on this beautiful color.  Check out this collage that she made to announce its arrival …I definitely felt super warm and fuzzy seeing my mention in it. 🙂

Indian Summer is a copper jelly base containing copper hex, dark copper micro hex, and small gold dots.  It is really sheer so it can be used as a glitter topper to add some festive Fall flavor, or it can be worn on its own in 3 coats or so.  I’m always a little greedy with my color so I used 4 coats in these pictures with a top coat.  I felt like it dried really fast because I was actually packing for a road trip in between coats and every couple minutes I had to change laundry, change diapers, do dishes and I never smeared it at all! (that pretty much never happens, I am always redoing a couple fingers)  I seriously LOVE this color, check it out…

The reason why I knew she would do such a good job with this one?  Her jellies are awesome!  I bought these a while back, check out how pretty How’s Them Berries and Merman Tracks are!  Both of these are 3 coats with a top coat.  Love, love, love the large dot glitters!

But do you know what The Devil Wears Polish does even better?!  HOLOS!  In my mind Tami is the Queen of Holo, maybe it’s because they were some of the first ones I saw, but they are amazing!  I bought a few from her Lustrous Linears 2.0 line and then of course my Nice & Toasty.   She also created another beauty for me called Bourbon Substitute which is a gorgeous amber holo, buuut I haven’t been able to buy that one yet, so it will have to wait.  Take a look at these pics to find out why I am in love with Tami’s holos so much… all of these pictures are 3 coats with a top coat.  2 coats would have been perfectly fine, but remember I am greedy with my color! lol

The Aspiring Anarchist Collection is also available in the store now and is a cute punk themed collection inspired by by early punk bands.  Tami slipped in an extra mini of I Wanna Be Sedated with one of my orders and was so excited!  This is my favorite one from the collection, and every time I think about it I get the song by the Ramones stuck in my head.  This is a black jelly base with multi-colored neon micro glitters, matte pink and white skulls, and a dash of white micro glitter.  Pink skulls?!  Are you kidding me?  LOVE it!

The Devil Wears Polish Halloween Boo-tifuls *Limited Edition*

The Devil Wears Polish 000

Yay, I’m so excited to have another set of polish from The Devil Wears Polish to share with you, and this one is just in time for Halloweeeeen!  Tami makes all of her polishes using a 3-free base and personally hand-mixes each bottle with lots of love and badassery and it shows!

The Devil Wears Polish 004The Devil Wears Polish has come out with a great Limited Edition Halloween Boo-tifuls Collection and she sent me two of them to try.  These are so cute, I have never owned any Halloween themed polish and they’re perfect!    First up is Jack of All Lanterns.  This one has a pumpkin orange crelly base with large black circle glitters (my fav!) and other different sized smaller black, white and yellow dot glitter.  Here I have on three coats with a top coat, and obviously black on my accent nail for fun.  I think this just might be the perfect one to wear with my candy corn witch outfit 🙂

The Devil Wears Polish 010

 

The Devil Wears Polish 003Next I want to show you Tricky Treat.  I love this one and have been excited about it ever since the moment Tami announced the arrival of her skull and cross bone glitter.  That’s right, this one is a tricky treat!  It has super cute pink and purple square glitters in a white crelly base with the raddest black skull and cross bone glitters.  Here I have on 3 coats with a top coat.  This is perfect for Halloween or anytime you want to wear polish with attitude.  

The Devil Wears Polish 009

Now, sometimes those super cool larger glitters can be a bit tricky because they are heavier and sink.  No problem, I found that turning the bottle upside down for a bit before polishing helped me be able to grab all the goodies.

This Halloween Boo-tifuls Collection will be available TODAY along with several other gorgeous new releases!  Check out all the pretties at The Devil Wears Polish Store and show Tami some love on Facebook.

Stay tuned for my next review coming SOON where I will share some major holographic eye candy with you…
