Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Winter 2015 Swatches and Review: Gingerbread Cookies

Polish 'M Gingerbread Cookies (2 coats)

Happy New Year (almost)! My parents have been in town and we watched Star Wars for the second time. It was still good! You may not be aware that Polish 'M released their winter collection and that's because it was only released at 2 restocks. I only bought 4 of the polishes so I don't have all of them to show you. Also, Michelle just mentioned on Facebook that she is going to change pretty much everything about her company in 2016. There will be smaller number of polishes in collections (2-5) that are not necessarily seasonal, all polishes will be now be limited edition with 1 batch made (30 or 60 bottles), and there will be no more core polishes (all of them will be discontinued in the new year). I'm sure there are more changes, so check Facebook to learn more. I hope this makes everything easier for Michelle.

Tonight I have the color Gingerbread Cookies to share with you. It's a grey taupe base with tons of bronze shimmer and multichrome flakes. I think this is a really interesting take on a neutral color. I've never had an issue with the formula on Polish 'M polishes, and this is no different. Gingerbread Cookies only needed 2 easy coats.

Have a fun and safe New Years Eve tonight! You can find Polish 'M on their storeFacebookInstagram, and Facebook Group (which I am a part of!) pages.

Right on the Nail ~ Philly Loves Lacquer Mystery Trio: Single Bottle Prototypes

Hi guys! I know I've been a terrible blogger this past week. With all of the traveling, baking, and wrapping presents, I didn't have the time for blogging. I had a great Christmas, and my parents will be coming in to town tomorrow to celebrate with them. I hope you had a fun and safe holiday season as well. Tonight I have a mystery trio from Philly Loves Lacquer that I've been been sitting on since Halloween. I've known about this brand for years, but for some reason did not get around to buying them until now.

Right on the Nail ~ Morgan Taylor Holiday 2015 Gifted With Style Collection Mini Set Swatches and Reviews

Hi guys! Today felt like Friday for some reason which is really disappointing since it is only Wednesday. Oh, did I tell you that I'm going back to Cambodia in January? I'm a huge fan of Cambodia and this will be my 4th time going there. I usually have pictures of the local beauty shop I go to while I'm there, so keep your eyes peeled for that next month. Tonight I have the holiday mini set from Morgan Taylor to show you. The whole Gifted With Style collection is 6 pieces, so I'll just be showing the other 2 later this week. Let's see what we have going on here...

Right on the Nail ~ CND Rouge Red Stocking Stuffer Kit Swatches and Review

*press sample* 

CND Rouge Red (2 coats)

If you are interested in trying the CND Vinulux system, there are a few stocking stuffers available that may pique your interest. The Rouge Red kit includes full-sized versions of the Rouge Red color with the weekly topcoat as well as 2 oz of the Scrub Fresh which is basically a nail prep cleaner for your nails before you apply polish. I used every part of this set before my trip to Minneapolis and I had zero chips during my 6 days away. Listen, I am so impressed with this nail system. Rouge Red is a bright red creme that is perfect for this holiday season. The formula and application were absolutely flawless, but make sure to use a light hand with the topcoat because it can sometimes get a little streaky.

Right now you can get this 3-piece set at Loxa Beauty for only $19.98. CND polishes normally retail for $10.50 and are a little hard to find. You can sometimes find them at Ulta, or any time online at popular e-tailers such as Loxa Beauty (who also happen to have Morgan Taylor and OPI polishes you can buy without the need of a license). Find more about CND on their FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages.

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Limited Edition Nail Polish Swatches and Review: Burnt Marshmallow

Polish 'M Burnt Marshmallow (2 coats)

Hi guys! Tonight I have a limited edition polish from Polish 'M that is unfortunately sold out. Michelle said that she may have it back again next year so don't despair! The 2015 version of Burnt Marshmallow is different than the 2014 version which had less glitter and more of a white base. Here it has an off-white (almost grey?) crelly base with black, brown, gold, and bronze hexagonal glitter and gold shimmer. It really hits those toasted marshmallow notes, right? I, personally, really love burning my marshmallows and eating the outside. How do you like your marshmallows? I find that Polish 'M polishes consistently have a great formula, even those with lots of glitter in them. This somehow only needed 2 easy coats.

Right on the Nail ~ Rainbow Honey Cosmetics Mystery Bag Nail Polish Swatches and Reviews

Hi guys! I can't believe it's Wednesday already. Two of my cats (I have 3) went to the vet today and they are in good health. They are 10 years old and it shocks me every time I think about it. Mr. Nose is the biggest ham and loves going to the vet because he loves the extra attention. They ended up taking pictures of him to put on their Facebook page...he's that much of a goofball. In nail polish news, I just recently stopped my Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag subscription. It is definitely one I would go back to as soon as I pare down on some of my untrieds. Some of these colors are older, but I'm pretty sure they are still available. Let's get started, shall we?

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Chills and Thrills Collaboration Box Review and Swatches: Chills & Thrills

Polish 'M Chills & Thrills (2 coats) over 2 coats of white polish

Hi guys! Unfortunately the polish I have to show tonight is not available anymore (it wasn't around long and was only a part of the Chills & Thrills Collaboration box). It may be available next year since Michelle tends to bring back popular polishes so keep your eyes out. I bought a couple Polish 'M colors from the Holiday Collection during Black Friday so I hope to have those up on the blog soon as well. Chills & Thrills is a glitter topper with pretty much every size and shape of glitter (hexagonal, circular, moons, stars, triangles, etc.) and a really strong gold flash. The shimmer is sort of hard to see in pictures, but it is really noticeable in person. It is very glitter dense polish, so I found the best technique to apply it was to dab it on. You will need a really thick topcoat and likely 2 coats of it to smooth this out.

Right on the Nail ~ Julep Maven Nail Polish Reviews and Swatches Part II

Hi guys! It's finally Friday! Scraggles is doing much better now, thank goodness. I'm almost finished with the second season of the Great British Baking Show on PBS and I am smitten. It is such a great show. No spoilers, but I want Tamal to win. Anyway, tonight I have the final 3 polishes from the Julep Maven boxes to show you. Let's go, shall we?

Right on the Nail ~ Julep Maven Nail Polish Reviews and Swatches

Hi guys! Scraggles (my little terrier mix) has been feeling under the weather today so I had to take her to the vet. She should be fine, but they had to give her fluids, an anti-vomiting shot, and some antibiotics for her GI tract. Keep her in your thoughts. On a lighter note, I have a ton of old Julep nail polishes to review. You will notice several different nail lengths mostly due to these being applied at various times...I hope you don't mind. Come with me after the break to see what I have in store tonight.
