Cupcake Polish Color4Nails Exclusive Duo Swatches & Review

Hey friends! I've got two new exclusive polishes from the Color4Nails website to share with you by Cupcake Polish! These both have beautiful inspiration collages that were used in the creation of the shades so I thought I'd include them!
Enchanted is an emerald holographic with pink and blue shimmers. I found this to be pretty thick, I had to take a little extra care to apply this evenly but it was worth it. This is stunning! Two coats.

Whimsy is a pinky lilac holographic with gold and purple shimmers. This was also a little thick, but easier to apply. Two coats for opacity. Thus freaked out my camera, I had to take a ton of pictures to get one that wasn't all blown out from the holo haha.

These two polishes are available on the Color4Nails website now for $14 each. There is a few codes out there for the website that you can get 10% off with, a quick google search will help you find one if you want to save some money. What do you think of these babes?

Glam Polish It's Only A Dream Alice Collection [Partial] Swatches & Review

Today I have a wonderful new collection from Australian indie brand Glam Polish inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland! There are nine shades total in the collection and I have six of them to show you today :)

A Place Called Wonderland has a bright magenta pink base with holographic pigment and holographic violet, lavender, bright pink and neon pink microglitter, with added shimmering glass flecks. Excellent formula, very opaque, two coats.

Down That Rabbit Hole is a bright green with holographic pigment and holographic green, lime, and silver glitters with added shimmering glass flecks. The base on this one seemed slightly metallic to me, but that didn't change the application, which was also great. Two coats here.

You’re Entirely Bonkers has a subtle holographic base with iridescent glitter, pink, purple and green transparent glitter, with blue shimmer and purple glass flecks. I wore this on it's own but this awesome gal layered it over black and it looks amazing that way too. This seemed sheer on the first coat, but built up nicely. I used three coats for this swatch, but two was almost enough.

I Really Do Love That Hat has a bright coral base base with holographic pigment, neon pink, and silver holographic glitter with added shimmering glass flecks. This is totally my type of color, a little coral, a bit red, kinda pink, slightly orange. Great coverage, almost a one coater but I used two.

The Wrong Alice has a bright aqua blue base with holographic pigment, holographic ocean, sky blue, neon blue, and silver glitter with added shimmering glass flecks. The usual awesome formula from Glam Polish, perfect coverage in two coats.

Six Impossible Things has a glassy holographic base with iridescent glitter, transparent pink glitters and shimmery pink glass flecks. This is another one you could layer, I bet it would look stunning over a pink. Applied very easily, surprisingly great coverage on just two coats. This is really gorgeous, way better in person than I could capture in a picture.

The three remaining shades in the collection are as follows: The Best Futterwacken In All Of Witzend - holographic base with ultra holographic glitter and a rainbow mix of metallic and neon glitter; Liars! Cheats! Falsifiers! - holographic base with ultra holo glitter, red, white and black microglitter; A Crazy Mad Wonderful Idea - bright purple subtle holographic base with violet holo, bright pink holo, neon pink, and ultra holo glitter with shimmering glass flecks.

This collection will be available for purchase on the Glam Polish website Friday, June 3rd at 2pm EST (US). What do you think of these shades? Are you a fan of Alice? I love the books and the original Disney cartoon, but the Tim Burton film isn't my favorite and idk if I'm going to watch the new one (but I probably will). However, I love and will always appreciate the genius of Tim Burton's artistry and visuals and think Glam Polish did an excellent job with these polishes. How about you?

Different Dimension Cosmologically Speaking Part 3 Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have the Different Dimension Cosmologically Speaking Part 3 collection to show you! I have had these for a little while but haven't had time to get them swatched, because the weather has been utter crap, and then I broke some nails! So when I was able to fit them in to swatch, my nails were super nubs, and then the sun went away while I was in the middle of taking photos. But I persevered and figured you would rather see them on my shorty short nails rather than not at all, right? RIGHT!

The Cosmologically Speaking series has been done twice before from Different Dimension, each annually. I have lusted after the previous collections but sadly haven't gotten to try any until now. The shades for the series this year all have duochrome-y jewel tone bases with scattered holographic "sparks". Mine seem to be a bit chunky, but I have heard from other bloggers that this is not the case with the polishes being sent to buyers, so no worries on that. The chunks are probably the holo bits sticking together, so there was some texture even after a layer of top coat.

Houston, We Have a Problem has a magenta to purple base with flashes of hot pink with scattered holographic sparks. Great opacity, two coats.

SpaceX is a peach to pink with a strong pink flash and scattered holographic sparks. This has the heaviest amount of holographic bits, very blingy. I thought this would be more sheer, but I got full coverage in two coats!

International Space Station (ISS) is a medium teal with scattered holographic sparks. The duochrome in this one is not as strong but it's still there. Another two-coater.

The Eagle Has Landed is a dark purple with strong copper shimmer and scattered holographic sparks. My favorite in the collection! Two coats.

Hubble is a cobalt blue to light blue duochrome with scattered holographic sparks. Great opacity, almost a one coater but this is two.

These are available on the Different Dimension website now for $10 each or $45 for the full collection. What do you think of these shades? I think they are outta this world! ;)
