ILNP Sandy Baby

Sandy Baby is a subtle and sophisticated peach beige jelly.

Collection: ILNP Spring Jellies 2016

Color: This is a perfect my nails but better with some added glam type of shade. I'm in love with the color and it's made a home for itself on my makeup vanity because I'm using it so much. It's a great shade if you want a clean, fresh, and sleek look on your nails.

Formula: This formula is sheer but it works for a polish like this. I used 3 coats above. What I like about the sheerness of this polish and the color is that it will be very forgiving if I'm wearing it for several days. If I get some tip wear or a tiny chip it won't be as noticeable as if I wore a creme.

Price: This is $10 on the ILNP website.

Overall: I love Sandy Baby. It's the perfect go-to nail polish when you want a clean and natural look on your nails that still offers a touch of bling. I really adore ILNP soft jellies shades and I will be stocking up on more. This polish is perfection!

China Glaze Wait n' Sea

 Wait n' Sea is a bright teal creme.

Collection: China Glaze Off Shore Summer 2014

Color: This a pretty teal creme. I love the brightness and freshness of this color. It's nice, but it's not the most original color either.

Formula: The formula on this was strange. This had a really loose and runny formula. It pooled up in my cuticles and I found it a bit messy. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't a formula I really liked working with.

Price: I purchased this on Head2ToeBeauty for $3.25.

Overall: This is nice color, but it's really not something special or unique especially when it has a runny formula to boot. It's just not entirely worth it to me. The name is cute, but everything else falls a bit flat.

NYX Sweet Sin

Today, I have an NYX polish to share with you. NYX polishes are sold on their website or their retail stores only which is unfortunate because they really make some great polishes. I wish they were more readily available!

Sweet Sin
Sweet Sin is a purple-gray mauve with a bronze shimmer.

Collection: NYX Core

Color: Yes! I love this color. This is an awesome neutral purple paired with a gorgeous fiery bronze shimmer. I love this color combination. I don't see colors like this often I appreciate NYX having it in their line up.

Formula: This had a nice a smooth formula. I used 2 coats above.

Price: This is $5 on the NYX website or in a NYX store.

Overall: Excellent polish. I adore this color and that bronze shimmer. The formula was great and the price was awesome too. I just wish they sold NYX polishes in other stores.

ILNP Sandy Baby

Today, I have one of ILNP's "jellie" polishes to share with you.

Sandy Baby
Sandy Baby is a subtle and sophisticated peach beige jelly that is extremely versatile, super holographic.

Collection: ILNP Spring Jellies Spring 2016

Color: This is a great my nails but better shade. It gives you a crisp clean look, but it has that added sparkle which I like! You know I've been into neutrals and nudes for awhile so I love this color.

Formula: The formula on this was good but sheer. I used 3 coats above and you can still see my nail peeking through in some spots. It doesn't bother me tremendously because it is such a nude color, but it's something to keep in mind.

Price: This is $10 on the ILNP website.

Overall: I really like this polish and it's one I have reached for more than once. It's a great clean or palette cleansing shade when you just want something to look fresh and nice on your nails. I really like this one!

KBShimmer All The Bright Moves (3 of 6)

* I received the following in exchange for my honest review. 

I have 3 of the 6 polishes from KBShimmer's All The Bright Moves collection to share with you today. I lit up like a little kid when I received these polishes in the mail. This collection is inspired by the late 80's and early 90's. This was my childhood and these colors are so very reminiscent of that time and filled me with nostalgia! This collection will be released tomorrow!

Color Me Rad
Color Me Rad is a shockingly bright watermelon color, a neon red with warm pink undertones. 

Double Pog Dare You
Double Pog Dare You is a vibrant sky blue creme. 

Let's Be Frank
Let's Be Frank a red toned, electric violet purple is a blast from my Lisa Frank sticker filled past.

Collection: All The Bright Moves 2017

Colors: These colors are perfect representations of the theme. They're in your face, bold, and vibrant. I also love the names. You can't go wrong with these bright colors.

Formula: Color Me Rad and Double Pog Dare You had excellent formulas. They were so opaque easy to apply. I'm used to colors this bright having issues of streaking or being uneven. These were perfection. I used 2 coats for both. Let's Be Frank was a little trickier. It had a sheerer and looser formula that didn't apply as smoothly but covered in 3 coats. 

Price: These will be $9.25 each and on sale tomorrow on the KBShimmer website. There are 3 other shades in this collection and you can buy the entire set for $50.00. 

Overall: This is an excellent and fun collection. The theme is great and the colors are awesome. I am really impressed by the formulas of Color Me Rad and Double Pog Dare You. Let's Be Frank's formula is the only reason I'm knocking half a paint splatter off these. It's still great, but not the same superb formula as the other two. If you love brights like this you will want these colors!

Nails Inc. Sparkle Like A Unicorn Duo

* I received the following in exchange for my honest review. 

Nails Inc. recently kindly sent me their new Sparkle Like a Unicorn Duo to review. The whole "unicorn" theme has been very on trend lately. I'm surprised it wasn't a trend before because the nail polish community has been unicorn-ing it up for the past few years! This duo features two sparkly, .magical, and unicorn-riffic shades.

Rainbow Wishes
Rainbow Wishes is a soft lavender base with a strong blue shimmer flash.

Dream Dust
Dream Dust is a soft pink with a fiery golden foil finish.

Collection: Sparkle Like a Unicorn

Colors: These colors are great and fit the unicorn theme. I love the lit-from-within glow in Rainbow Wishes. The shimmer in there is strong and lights up on your nails. Dream Wishes is an amazing foil. You know I love foil polishes and I don't see them done in nail polish in recent years. It looks like liquid metal on your nails. Both of these shades are stunning!

Formula: These both had excellent formulas. I used 2 coats for each. They were opaque and applied smoothly and easily.

Price: This duo is $15.00 and can be purchased at Nails Inc. or Sephora. That's typically the price for one Nails Inc. polish. You get them both for $15.00. That's a steal!

Overall: You need this duo. They're gorgeous shades and beautifully made. The formulas were great and you can't beat that $15.00 price!
