Essie Summer 2015 review

As much as I’m known for my love of all things green, I have a lesser known obsession with sparkly white nail polish. It all started with China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr and it’s been going strong ever since. White feels so fresh and clean in summer, but add a little glimmer and I’m sold.

So, when I realized the Essie Summer 2015 collection included a white sparkler, I had to get my hands on it. Thanks to a quick eBay search, I was able to get a set to share with you. But, would this white live up to my high expectations? Keep reading to find out.

China Glaze Spring 2015 – Road Trip Swatches & Review

China Glaze Spring 2015 - Road Trip Review via @alllacqueredup

China Glaze Spring 2015 – Road Trip

ROAD TRIP!! That was the theme of my day’s off during my tenure as a ride operator at Cedar Point. Every Thursday, me and my best buds would hop in my convertible and hit the road. We would either visit our families or hit up other parks, like Sea World, Geauga Lake or Kings Island. As fun as our adventures were, the best part was driving in the car, tunes blasting, with endless amounts of singing and laughing.

The China Glaze Spring 2015 collection celebrates the memory-making fun of the Road Trip with twelve diverse nail polish shades, ranging from delicate pastels to punchy brights.

OPI Hawaii Spring 2015 Swatches and Review

OPI Spring 2015 - Hawaii swatches & review via @alllacqueredup

OPI Spring 2015 – Hawaii

Growing up, all I knew of Hawaii was what I saw in the surfing movie North Shore (not the FOX TV show, though I watched that too) and that my mother wanted to go but felt it was one of those places that you visit and never want to leave. If I had a dollar for every time she said, “If I go to Hawaii, I’m not coming home,” well, I wouldn’t have to work.

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colors of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

Morgan Taylor Cinderella Swatches & Review

Morgan Taylor Cinderella review via @alllacqueredup

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

Of all the fairy tale princesses, Cinderella was my favorite as a child. I mean, what little girl wouldn’t love to have a fairy godmother to whip up a ball gown out of scraps with a simple, “Bibbidi bobbidi boo!”  I remember teetering around in a pair of embellished lucite mules I found in my mom’s closet, pretending they were glass slippers. And I still have my Cinderella VHS and Madame Alexander Cinderella dolls, both the ball gown and “poor” versions.

Now Disney is releasing a live action version of Cinderella with Cate Blanchett as the as the evil stepmother and Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother and Morgan Taylor has partnered with film on a nail polish collection. Morgan Taylor Cinderella is their Spring 2015 collection and it’s filled with sweet shades, worthy of a princess.

Essie Neons 2014 Too Taboo

Affiliate Link|Press Sample

Even though I own a bunch of day-glo neon polishes, I rarely wear them. They’re cool but the opacity issues and streakiness that plague traditional neons make them a bother to apply. Plus, they can be a bit too much for everyday life.

That’s why I find the Essie Neons 2014 so refreshing. They’re well pigmented and aren’t as in-your-face. That’s just two of the reasons it’s one of my Top 10 nail polish collections of the summer.
