Right on the Nail ~ Zoya Summer 2016 Seashells Collection Swatches and Reviews Part II

*press samples*

Hi guys! The week is flying by, right? And I can't tell you how excited I am about the long weekend with Memorial Day coming up. Oh, and I still haven't seen who won Dancing With the Stars, but so far I haven't been spoiled. Tonight I'll be finishing up the Seashells Collection, and next week will feature the Sunsets (cremes) Collection. Follow me after the break for more pictures and my thoughts!

Right on the Nail ~ Zoya Summer 2016 Seashells Collection Swatches and Reviews Part I

*press samples*

Hi guys! It's a little sad that I'm so excited for the finale of Dancing with the Stars AND the Bachelorette premiere tonight! Anyone else but me watching? I'm doubly excited about reviewing the latest Zoya collections coming at you for this summer season. There are 2 separate collections (the Seashells and Sunsets, respectively) for the summer and I have both of them to review for you. The Seashells collection reintroduces the famous Pixiedust formula that Zoya hasn't done lately while the Sunsets feature bright cremes. I'll be reviewing the first 3 colors of the Seashells Collection tonight, so shall we get started?

Right on the Nail ~ Sephora Formula X The Brushed Metallics Collection Swatches and Review: Destiny

Formula X Destiny (3 coats)

Hi guys! I'm so happy it's the weekend, despite not having any plans. It's Pizza Friday, so I figured I'd get this post up before I go into a food coma. Tonight I have a polish that's been in my folder for far too long. I don't actually have many Formula X polishes, mostly because they are pretty expensive (retail $12.50). Destiny is a cornflower blue with lots of pink/purple shimmer. The other polishes in The Brushed Metallics Collection have a matte finish...except for Destiny! I don't even think it dried to a satin finish, so I ended up just adding topcoat. It's a beautiful color with beautiful shimmer. Also, it's not even metallic like the rest of the collection. Seriously, why is it in this collection since it's not metallic or matte? Destiny is still available through Sephora if you are interested in purchasing it.

Right on the Nail ~ Great Lakes Lacquer The Sunset Dissected Collection Swatches and Review: The Last Sliver of Sun

Great Lakes Lacquer The Last Sliver of Sun (2 coats)

Hi guys! I worked from home today because my husband had to get his last wisdom tooth taken out. Eek! Tonight I have a really special polish to show you. The first time I saw The Last Sliver of Sun on Ida's blog (which I love!), I knew I had to have it. I ended up contacting Mariah of Great Lakes Lacquer for a special segment I have coming up on the blog, and I told her how long I've been wanting The Last Sliver of Sun. A few days later I had it on my nails and I wasn't disappointed. It's a buttery yellow with loads of bronze, gold, and green flakes. The first coat was a little sheer, but the second coat fully covered any visible nail line. I have a little bit of lobster hands going on in my pictures, but that's how it goes sometimes. I know this isn't a color for everyone, but I adore it.

I've had my eye on the rest of the Sunset Dissected collection, so maybe some of those will be popping up on the blog soon. The Last Sliver of Sun retails for $10 and you can get it now on the Great Lakes Lacquer site. Make sure to check out what Mariah is up to on her EtsyFacebook, and Instagram pages.

Right on the Nail ~ Great Lakes Lacquer May Limited Edition Swatches and Reviews: I'd Rather Be Fishing and Redear Sunfish

Hi guys! I hope your week is off to a great start. Tonight I have a brand that is new to the blog, but I've been meaning to buy from them for many months. I've always enjoyed Great Lakes Lacquer from all of the swatches and reviews I've seen, but it wasn't until The Sunset Dissected collection was released that I knew I must purchase. I'll explain more about this in a post later this week, I promise. Every month Mariah, the owner, puts out polishes that are limited editions that you can just purchase that month. I have the May limited edition polishes to show you guys tonight, and they will be available for purchase through June 1st on her Etsy site.
