Nine Zero Lacquer The Accent Glitters Collection Swatches & Review

Good day to you, dear friend! I have the latest collection from indie brand Nine Zero Lacquer to show you today. This set of eight glitter polishes are coined as accent glitters, meant to be "simple but effective tools to add something extra to any manicure. Use as a full manicure or as single accent nail for a punch of holographic sparkle." They would also be great for use in nail art.

These all had pretty much the same formula, they seemed sparse on the first layer, but built up nicely in three coats. You might see a spot here or there that's not covered but they're so blingy and rainbow-rific that you really can't tell in real life. You could also sponge these on for a completely opaque look. They dry like microglitters so you'll want a thick top coat. My favorite for glitters lately is Girly Bits Glitter Glaze.

Diamond is a silver holographic microglitter in a clear base.

Sapphire is a rich blue holographic microglitter in a clear base.

These polishes are available on the Nine Zero Lacquer website now for $10 each, or you can buy the set of eight for $75. They are really beautiful and crazy blingy! My friend Valesha of Peachy Polish has some great macro shots of these on her blog you should look at! My favorite is Onyx but I enjoyed them all. Let me know what you think of these! Would you wear them as an accent nail or a full mani??

Sunny's Body Products Summer Essentials Box Review

Happy Friday cookies! Today I have the latest seasonal box from Sunny's Body Products to share with you! This time she's offering a smaller box (8 products instead of the usual 10) for a lower price for the summer. The OG products are in here along with a newer one or two. Let's dive into the Summer Essentials!

First we have Sunny's Hand Butter in the scent Blue Summer - Imagine eating fresh picked berries while wandering through a flower garden wild with jasmine, roses, blue lotus and orange blossoms. A gentle breeze lifts your hair and sparkles with notes of ginger and cedar along with heady vanilla-musk and amber. This is mellow and smooth and totally makes me think of a sexy evening in the garden with a hot guy by my side. OOH yeah. I love the formula of her hand butter, though it can take a bit to absorb so I usually use it in the evenings before bed.

Next is Sunny's Cuticle Oil in the scent Driftwood & Sea Salt - Feel the salt spray coating your hair as you awe in the power of the wild seas. Driftwood & Sea Salt picks up notes of citrus, mangos, orchids and lilies and finishes with a hit of salt soaked driftwood. I wasn't sure about this upon first sniff, but after wearing it for a while I really like it. Again, pretty mellow and sort of unisex but still feminine? This one is hard to capture in words! I adore the rollerball applicator and quick absorbing formula of this oil.

Sunny's Sugar Hand Scrub is scented as Sea Foam & Balsam - top notes in citrus and ozonic notes; middle - sandalwood, geranium, and white flowers; base - patchouli, caramel, and amber. I am obsessed with the scrub, it's perfect for keeping my overworked nail blogger hands and fingers in tip top shape. This scent for me was just ok, I don't think I'm an ozone fan. I do enjoy the citrus and flower notes so it's a toss up.

The scent for Sunny's On the Go Hand Lotion is called Aloha Vanilla - a warm tropical island breeze with beautiful aromas of sweet mango, vanilla absolute and creamy coconut with a touch of lotus flower. This lotion formula is my favorite to carry in my purse, it absorbs so fast with a nice dose of moisture. However, the scent didn't work for me. I think the coconut is to blame for my disdain, but you might love it!

The other oil that they make is Sunny's Intensive Cuticle Therapy, this one is in the scent Summer Boardwalk - a yummy boardwalk smells of caramel glazed popcorn, warm taffy apples and sweet, creamy saltwater taffy. This is very warm and foodie, sweet with a hint of salt and fruit. I wanted to eat my fingers with this stuff on! I love this oil for really pampering my cuticles and nails, it is feels so luxe.

And here we have Sunny's Triple Thick Body Cream in Sunset By The Pool - top notes of fuzzy apricot, sparkling bergamot, juicy grapefruit; mid notes of lily of the valley, mirabel plum, blood orange, apple blossom; bottom notes of sun warmed woods and Madagascar vanilla. This is totally a summer lotion scent, familiar but new at the same time. This might sound funny, but it makes me think of that one impossibly perfect girl who you see at the pool looking effortlessly stunning while you're sweating and getting sunburnt and falling off your floatie raft. I want to be that girl, and this makes me smell like I imagine she does haha.

Sunny's Miracle Balm in the scent Tiki Beach - a luxurious blend of toasted coconut, vanilla musk and orchids brings the glamour of a resort-stay to you. The combination of sparkling lemon, toasted coconut, orchid petals with tiny hints of green leaves blended with white cedar and vanilla musk will lull you into a tropical paradise! I'm in love with this complex, warm, girly summer scent! My favorite in the box. Miracle balm is seriously a miracle, you can put it anywhere haha! I usually put it on my cuticles and elbows for serious moisture.

Sunny's Lip Saver is the last product in the box, with the scent/flavor Caribbean Delight - sweet pineapple and mangos and papayas. I am not the biggest fan of pineapples, but the mix of the fruits makes this work for me. This little tube keeps my lips supple for hours!

This box will be available for purchase today on their website at $30 with free US shipping, $5 international shipping. I think this is a great bang for your buck! And if you're into summer scents, you're going to be head over heels for these items. There is a limited number available, so don't hesitate to pick it up if you're interested. Have YOU tried Sunny's yet??

Potion Polish Summer In New York Collection Swatches & Review

Today I have the newest collection from indie brand Potion Polish, the Summer in New York collection! A few of my blogging besties are posting their swatches & reviews of this collection today also, so please be sure to check out their blog posts (links at the bottom)!

Central Park Peonies is a warm watermelon pink crelly filled with holographic flakes. This applied easily and was opaque on two coats.

Manhattan Skyline is an indigo jelly packed with red shimmer and shifting aqua-blue opalescent flakies. The formula was easy to apply, not gummy like some jellies can get. I used three coats here.

Coney Island Coaster is a bright, light aqua with shifty glass fleck shimmer and holographic microglitter. This one seemed chunkier upon application than I expected from looking at it in the bottle. Not difficult, but different. I used three coats for this guy. There is a really pretty pink shift to this color that shows up a lot more in real life than it chose to in my photo.

Rooftop Movies is a medium blurple (more purple to me) crelly with holographic flakes and pink glass fleck glitter. This went on well, similar to Peonies in formula, and opaque in two coats.

Times Square is a dark teal blue jelly filled with holographic glitter and a sprinkle of shifting shimmer that turns from blue to pink. I was also pleased with the formula on this, it spread on the nail nicely and wasn't gummy. I used three coats to completely cover my nail line.

And as an extra, I'm including Liberty from the recent Potion Polish Independence Day collection. She's a cornflower blue crelly with silver flakes and a touch of scattered holographic bits. Awesome, easy formula, opaque in two coats.

The Summer In New York colors are releasing July 22 at 1pm EST on the Potion Polish website. They are all priced at $11.00. Liberty is available now for $10. Let me know what you think about these shades! And please be sure to check out my friends' posts on this collection: Nail Polish Society, Peachy Polish and Very Emily.
