Swatches // My Little Pony x China Glaze Color is Magic! Collection (Partial)

Swatches of the My Little Pony by China Glaze Color is Magic! Collection

Glitter glitter glitter! And some iridescent flakies! Do I ever have some lovelies for you guys today, let me tell you!

The China Glaze x My Little Pony collaboration collection is coming out this month, and I was able to pick up the ones that caught my eye at my local beauty supply place a couple weeks ago (since they always put collections out early).

I've been sitting on these swatches for a while unfortunately but now they are here and now you can enjoy them as much as I do! I have to say I think these are some of my favourite China Glaze polishes in recent memory! :D

Check them out below and let me know what you think!

Hello loves! Happy Pride! In celebration of the season (and the Toronto Pride Parade this coming Sunday!) I have a super fun new collection to share with you from Sinful Colors. This is their Pride 2017 Collection and it is being released with inspiration from international singer and songwriter Era Istrefi! The collection has a mix of new and old shades but my favourites are the 5 new Limited Edition glitter polishes in a rainbow of colours. A shade for every mood!

Swatch // Chirality Polish A Lot of Circles from the April Polish Pickup

If you haven't heard yet, Polish Pickup is a shop where you can nominate and vote on monthly themes and indie makers make polishes based around that theme which you can then pick up in the shop! It's been running for a few months so far and I love it - the way they set it up you can buy as many or as few polishes as you want, and there's $3 flat rate shipping to Canada and the US! Hooray!

I've been able to try out a BUNCH of new indie brands because of this which is awesome. The polish I have to share with you today is from the April Polish Pickup theme of 'Works of Art'. I'm sorry to say I can't remember which painting this was inspired by, but I can tell you it's from a brand that is brand new to me: Chirality Polish!

Review // Unboxing a 99¢ Born Pretty Store Three Item Lucky Bag Secret Gift Pack

So the longer I blog, the more I seem to love receiving mystery boxes or mystery packs. I don't know what it is! There's just something so fun about throwing a bit of my money at someone and getting something that's a total surprise in return. Is it just me??

Today the mystery item(s) we're looking at are the ones I got in a recent Born Pretty Store 99¢ mystery pack. I usually pick up a mystery pack with every order I make at BPS. They sometimes have mystery stamping plate sets, mystery packs (like this), mystery decal sets... All sorts of things! They usually cost between 99¢ and $2 so it's not like they break the bank, either.

The pack I'm sharing here was one of the Three Items Lucky Bag Secret Gift Packs and I've added the link just there in case you decide you want to pick one up for yourself after reading this post. ;)

So let's open it up!

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Paper: My First Holo Foil Nails

It is the last day of DD week and to be honest when I sat down to do these nails I had NO idea what I was going to do. Originally I was going to do a newspaper mani (where you apply newsprint to your nails with rubbing alcohol) but I couldn't find any newspaper in my house and it was too late to go out.

So instead my eye caught on the foil nail kit by Finger Paints that I picked up on clearance from Sally's ages ago and went "Foil is a form of paper. Foil nails it is!" I've never used foil paper successfully so I was a bit nervous, but these turned out awesome!

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Paper: Baroque Sheet Music Nails

I feel like this week I'm alternative complicated looks with simple looks, which I am totally okay with. Today I have a more simple look for you - just some bold black on white stamping that is supposed to inspire the idea of Baroque-period sheet music. :) That fits for the theme of 'Paper,' right?
