Polished For Days 2018 New Years Duo Swatches and Reviews: 2018 and Confetti

Hi guys! Wednesday we got a ton of snow here in NC! I think we ended up with ~1 foot which is unheard of around these parts. I didn't work yesterday or today so tomorrow is going to be a busy day. Tonight I have the duo released a few weeks ago from Polished For Days for New Years. These are still for sale for $12 each or $24 for the duo. It features one insane multichrome and 1 extreme flakie that you need in your life. Shall we get a better look?

Polished For Days 2017 Reindeer Games Collection Holiday Charity Polish: Cupid

Polished For Days Cupid (3 coats)

Hi guys! I spent the past 4 days in Philadelphia. The day we got in it was a balmy 61 degrees. The next day it was pouring down rain and getting colder by the hour. Nothing exciting happened...I spent the whole time working and sleeping. Scraggles has the best dog-sitter and she absolutely adores the daughter. Apparently they would play all evening and Scraggles would sleep in the bed with her. It's all very sweet. 

Tonight I have the annual charity polish from Polished For Days. Each polish sold will get $7 towards Angel Warriors for Kids. It's technically a part of the Reindeer Games Collection, but I just bought it as a stand-alone polish. It's a red flakie polish with a subtle mix of green flakes in there with a silver holo flake finish. It's basically a flakie bomb! The red and silver together gives it an almost pink hue at times, which I'm 100% ok with. You could get away with 2 coats, but I did a third because macro photos tend to show every tiny bald spot. It applied easily and had no texture after a coat of topcoat. Removal took a little extra elbow grease, but nothing like a glitter polish. 

This one is a beauty, and I love that the proceeds go towards a great charity. I've never been disappointed with any Polished For Days colors, so please consider giving them a shot. Their monthly box (For the Love of Polish) has a new brand taking over for Illyrian Polish. Surprise, it's Shannon from Pahlish! I've been using and loving Pahlish for many years, so this is going to make me go broke! Cupid retails for $12 and it's available now on the PFD website.

Zoya 2017 Kisses Pastel Jellies Trio Swatches and Reviews and 2018 Mystery Box Info

*press samples*

Hi guys! You might be wondering why I have the newest Zoya trio before their holiday Party Girls Collection. Well, it's coming, but midway through swatching it I got a really bad break and had to cut all my nails down. I'm trying to decide whether I want to reswatch the whole collection (12 polishes), or just show them as-is. Any opinions? Please leave a comment to let me know. The Kisses Pastel Jellies set is for sale now and features 3 jellies that are buildable based on the number of coats you use. You can use them on their own, make a jelly sandwich with a glitter polish, or add a shimmer top coat to it. These are available individually for $10, or you can purchase it as a trio ($30) or a quad ($40) with the shimmer topper, Leia. Shall we get a closer look?

Quixotic Polish Happy New Years Duo 2018 Swatches and Reviews

Hi guys! Did I even wish everyone a Happy New Year in my past post? I was in such a hurry to explain where I've been the past few weeks that I was forgot common decency! I have 2 New Year duos to show you, and the first set comes from Quixotic Polish. I've been showing Mary's colors a lot the past few months, and that's because I've been so smitten with them. She recently revamped her brand so you'll see a new logo and bottle shape here. Shall we take a look at her newest offerings?

Polished For Days Winter 2017 Reindeer Games Collection Swatches & Review: Vixen

Polished For Days Vixen (2 coats)

Hi guys! It's been so long! I took a well-needed break to visit family in Maryland, and then my family came to visit NC for New Years. I'm just now coming up for air, but I had a great one. I'm going to start off a little slow to get back into things, but I have some larger collections coming up soon. I've been a huge fan of Polished For Days and often buy their monthly For the Love of Polish Box that always features PFD and Illyrian and 1 rotating position. When I saw the first swatches on Instagram of the Reindeer Games Collection, I knew I had to get some. Unfortunately, I only have 1 so far, but I hope to remedy that in the coming months. Yes, they're that beautiful. 

Vixen is a deep berry red base with lots of red and green iridescent flakes and silver holo flakes. Basically it's a flakie party! I was worried that the green would be too subtle, but that didn't happen at all. The green really stood out well against the deep base. I've worn this a few times already, and I'm not ready to put it in the abyss that is the Helmer. As you can see, this is right after I cut my nails down. They've grown out a bit, but it will still be awhile before I get back to my long nails. The formula was perfect in just 2 coats. 

I cannot recommend this one more. I'm even considering a backup which is unheard of for me. It retails for $12 and it's available now on the PFD website.
