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.

I decided to tackle one of my first PinspiratioNAIL pins, a look I’ve been wanting to try for a while now, with these punchy new shades.

Essie Resort Fling DIY Subtle Sparkle #ManiMonday

It’s no secret that Essie Resort Fling is one of my fave shades for spring. The peachy, coral creme jelly (sorry the word “crelly” makes my skin crawl), is near perfect. The only thing that could make it better is that subdued crystal sparkle in shades like Sunday Funday and Naughty Nautical.

So, for this #ManiMonday, I used Essie Pure Pearlfection to create that signature look and now Resort Fling looks even more amazing!!

Press Sample

Just as hotly anticipated as the Zoya Magical PixieDusts, Zoya Awaken and new glitter topper Monet bring sparkling power pastels, dreamy creams and a glowing metallic to the spring color table. I’m all about Zoya’s sparkling, flecked finish so I couldn’t wait to play with these new Water Lilies-esque shades.
