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.

As I told you when I named my Top 10 Summer Nail Polish Collections, Morgan Taylor Island Treasures made the list for its mix of “me” colors with more mainstream shades like pink and fuchsia. The brand really hasn’t gotten enough attention for its top notch formula which you’ll get to see in a new video series I’m testing out.

L’Oréal Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque 1-2-3 Swatches & Review

L'Oréal Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque 1-2-3 swatches and review

If, like me, you tend to stalk your local drugstores for the latest and greatest in the world of nails, you’ve undoubtedly seen displays popping up for this new line of lacquer from L’Oréal. Though, in my area, the displays are cleaned out. Like I’ve said in the past, you include the word “gel” in a nail product and it flies off the shelves.

L’Oréal Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque 1-2-3 is a new three part system that claims “the high-shine of a UV-Gel and the perfect nail shape without harmful UV rays.” Now, you know how I feel about these gel-like claims (I call shenanigans) but I’m always game for being proven wrong so I put Gel-Lacque to the test.
