Cirque Colors Hatch and Reflektor


Hiya Lovelies!

Cirque Colors is bringing back two gorgeous polishes.  Hatch and Reflektor are back permanently!  I am so excited to swatch these beauties for you.

Hatch is a gorgeous milky-white cream polish with lots grey flakies and tiny silver micro glitter.  I am so in love with this polish I can't stand it!!  I have nothing like it in my collection, it truly is unique.  The formula was perfect, two easy smooth coats.

Reflektor is a stunning reflective platinum/gold foil polish.  This polish is teeming with tiny platinum/gold pieces that layer or each other to look like pure chrome.  I see many accent nails in my future with this beauty!

Cirque Colors polishes are available to purchase on their website here.

What do you gals think of Hatch and Reflektor?  Which one is your fave?

Have a great day lovelies!

New! Sally Hansen Beautifier Collection


Hiya lovelies!

I have the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Beautifier Collection and the new Blushed Collection to share with you today.

The new Beautifier Collection helps you perfect your mani with a range of base coats, top coats and nail and cuticle serum.

Step 1 is the Nail Primer which is a base coat that smooths your nails and fills in any ridges or imperfections.  It dries quickly and leaves your nails super smooth with a matte finish.

You can also use the Nail Corrector as a first step to your mani.  The Nail Corrector helps to camouflage any spots and ridges and gives a soft pink glow to the nails to help with your nails pigmentation.

Step 2 is to apply your favorite shade.  The new Blushed Collection gives your nails a pretty flush and a gorgeous pop of color!

First up is Rose to the Occasion which is a lovely soft, dusty rose cream.  It has a great formula, nicely pigmented and easy to apply.  I used two coats.

Blush Against the World is the prettiest pale pink with a slight jelly formula.  The formula is pretty typical for shades like this, it was pretty streaky so I needed three coats.

Off-the-Shoulder is a milky-peach cream.  I needed three coats for this one as well, the formula was good but it didn't level out well so I needed that extra coat.

Know the Espa-Drille is a dusty taupe cream.  This formula is super pigmented, you can almost get away with one coat!  I used two for good measure!

Killer Heels is a fabulous bright red with major pink undertones.  I am in love with this shade, I think it is so fun for Spring.  This one is a one coater (if you do the coat thick enough).

One in a Melon is a stunning pinky-melon cream with a great formula.  I used two easy coats for my swatch, no streaks!

Red it Online is a vampy deep red with a slight jelly finish.  No complaints here, two easy coats!

So once you have applied your polish, you are ready to seal!  There are three top coats to choose from, Fast Dry Top Coat, High Gloss Top Coat and Matte Top Coat.

I used a mixture of the Fast Dry and the High Gloss for my swatches and both were great.  They both left a nice high gloss.  I would probably lean towards the Fast Dry as I hate waiting for my nails to dry!  Haha

Here is the Matte Top Coat over top of Rose to the Occasion.

The final step is to hydrate!  Apply the Nail & Cuticle Serum often to keep your cuticles and nails smooth and hydrated.  It doesn't have a scent and has a gel like consistency.  I'm excited to add this to my moisture routine.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these new collections from Sally Hansen.  Which ones are you interested in?  

Have a great day lovelies!

Marble and Gold Smoosh Mani

Hello Lovelies!

I have another marble smoosh mani to share with you today.  I made a video tutorial for this one on Instagram, you can find me on there: @grapefizznails 

I'm wearing Essie Mrs. Always-right on my pointer and pinkie nails.  My base coat for the smoosh is OPI Funny Bunny and the three colors I smooshed together are Mint Candy Apple, Mrs Always-right and Wicked, all by Essie.

I added some gold leaf and a layer of my fave topcoat, NYC Grand Central Station.

What do you think of smoosh manis?  Have you tried them before?

Have a great day loves!

Hey Lovelies!

I have a quick negative space gradient to share with you.  I've never really done a negative space mani before.  I love how it turned out.

I used Formula X Mesmerize which is a gorgeous silver holo polish.  You can find Formula X polishes at Sephora.  My artificial lamps don't show how pretty this holo is!  I used a sponge to dab Mesmerize on my nail and sealed it all with my fave top coat, NYC Grand Central Station.

Have a great day lovelies!
