Noodles Nail Polish Halloween 2018 Trio Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys, I'm back, as promised. I have a fairly busy weekend planned with a fountain pen meeting tomorrow night and a birthday party on Saturday. Tonight I've got the Noodles Nail Polish Halloween trio to show you, and if you order, you'd definitely get them in plenty of time for the big day. Natalie is notorious for being a fast shipper, which is great when there's a holiday deadline. But heck, these polishes will be perfect any day, not just for Halloween. The trio will be available next Friday, Sept. 28th at 6 PM EST and will retail for $9.50 each (and will only be available individually). A big thanks also goes out to Jody from JodisPolish on Youtube for picking the names for the set. Without further ado, let's get to the pretties!

Zoya 2018 Bridal Bliss Collection Swatches and Review: Brighton

*press sample*

Zoya Brighton (3 coats)

Hi guys, I was planning on a different post for tonight, but time got away from me. I'll have the Noodles Nail Polish Halloween trio for your viewing pleasure either tomorrow or Friday. I also have 2 more Halloween trios from Static Lacquer to show you this weekend. In other words, it's gonna be creepy and spooky around here. Tonight I've got the one new polish released in the Bridal Bliss Collection released earlier this year from Zoya. I didn't end up showing the set to you guys because I already have swatches of most of the colors already up on the blog, so I didn't want to repeat them. No worries, the one I'm showing is still available and a permanent color. 

Brighton is a light gold base with a scattered silver holo flake finish. It's more of a beige gold than a yellow gold. It works well with my yellow toned skin, but it may give those with pink undertones a bit of lobster hands. I think this would look amazing on deeper skintones, too. It had a nice formula, and I ended up using 3 coats for my photos. If you use thicker coats, or have short nails, you may be able to get away with just 2. It dried quickly and had no texture. 

If you are looking for some nice neutrals, definitely check out the Bridal Bliss Collection, especially Brighton. I tend to like scattered holo flakes more than straight linear holos, but that's just personal preference. Zoya polishes retail for $10 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages. Keep an eye out for them in your local Ulta store if you want to see the bottles in person before you buy.

Polish 'M Group Custom #7 Polish Swatches and Review

Polish 'M Group Custom #7 (3 coats)

Hi guys! We survived Hurricane Florence! We're still getting rain and flooding in low-lying areas around us, but we were mostly spared. I hope my east coast NC readers are safe and sound though. Tonight I'm back with a group custom color from Polish 'M. It actually doesn't say whether or not you have to be in the Polish 'M Facebook Fan Group to purchase, but you should join anyway. This one is still available in the store for $8.00 along with some #Crellycrate Bespoke Trios inspired by Tim Burton on pre-order. 

Group Custom #7 doesn't have a special name, but it's a busy polish. It's a cool-toned pink crelly base with black and white shredded flakes, blue/pink/white glitters, and a strong blue shimmer flash. One thing I love about Michelle's polishes is the contrasting shimmers she adds. The blue really pops, and I wish it showed better in my photos. I used 3 thin coats for my photos, and it had a great formula. It dries with a lot of texture, so you'll need a thick layer or 2 of topcoat to smooth everything out. 

What a lovely and interesting polish Michelle came up with! She has a lot of polishes in her shop right now, so definitely check them out. You can find Polish 'M on their storefrontFacebookInstagram, and Facebook Group pages.

Cameo Colours Lacquers Polish Pickup (PPU) Shades from Mystery Bag

Hi guys! I hope you had a great weekend. It's my husband's birthday today, so we went out to dinner and shopped yesterday since we both had to work today. Also, bad news, the hurricane Florence is headed straight for us, so I'm not sure how much I'll be posting this week. I don't live extremely close to the coast, but the storm is supposed to stop right above us and stick around for many days through the weekend so there's a good chance for flooding. Yeah, not fun. Wish us luck. Anyway, tonight I have 3 Polish Pickup (PPU) shades from Cameo Colours Lacquers to show you. Bad news, these were all exclusives to PPU, so they aren't available anymore, but good news, I got these through the Mystery Bag on her website. She does her best to accommodate color or finish requests, but there isn't a guarantee. I left a note in my order saying I was interested in her PPU shades, and she was able to get me 3 of them. Shall we  get to some swatches?

Thriller Duo with Zombie Claw Polish and Static Lacquer: Swatches and Reviews

*press samples*

Hi guys! I hope you had a good Labor Day weekend. I pretty much spent most of it resting up and trying to clean tar off of my car. I do so much highway driving and got lots of dots of tar on the front of my car. After lots of scrubbing and inhaling of solvents, my car is mostly clean now. Tonight I have a duo inspired by Thriller from Michael Jackson. Thriller is easily my favorite Michael Jackson song and video. Yes, all 14 minutes of it. The duo consists of polishes from Zombie Claw Polish and Static Lacquer and it will be available from Wednesday, 9/5 at 4 PM EST to Wednesday, 9/12 in the Zombie Claw Polish website. You can purchase them individually for $11, or save yourself a few bucks and purchase the duo for $18 ($21 shipped). Shall we go ahead and look at some swatches?
