OPI ICELAND COLLECTION - SWATCH & REVIEW

Good afternoon Lovelies!! Are you guys excited for Fall yet!? Cuz I am :D
The temperature is starting to drop now and the humidity here in Texas is finally going down...(I am not a fan of humidity!).

Another reason I'm excited about Fall is the new polish collections coming out! ...Do you guys ever get excited for the new seasons because you know it means new Nail Polishes?? :P LOL!! I sure do!

Today I have the new Fall Collection from OPI to share with you guys.
 This entire collection consists of 12 polishes all inspired by Iceland. I highly recommend following OPI on Instagram, they have a lot of photos and videos of Iceland and the places and things there that inspired the collection. It's so cool to see what inspired the colors! It makes me enjoy this collection even more!

Ok, since there are a lot of polishes to show you, lets just get into it. I am going to try to keep this post short...but it is picture heavy, so enjoy!

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**



Less is Norse



That's What Friends Are Thor



Turn on the Northern Lights!


I really wanted to try stamping over this polish, so I stamped using Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Tempest and stamping plate Born Pretty Store plate BP-L003.



Icelanded a Bottle of OPI



One Heckla of a Color!



This Isn't Greenland


I remember wanting this exact shade of green last year, and could not find it anywhere...so I am very happy to see it in this collection! And of course I had to do some camo nails ;) I used That's What Friends Are Thor, Icelanded a Bottle of OPI, Essie The More The Merrier and LVX Oasis.



Krona-logical Order



Suzi and the Arctic Fox


This color was just begging me for a stamp! I used this lacy print design from Born Pretty Store plate BP-L020 and OPI I'll Have a Gin & Tectonic.



Reykjavik Has All the Hot Spots



Check Out the Old Geysirs



Aurora Berry-alis



 I'll Have a Gin & Tectonic

This Collection is amazing! The formula of all of the polishes was wonderful! I was able to swatch almost every polish with only 2 coats. Aurora Berry-alis can be swatched with only 1 coat...I'm super impressed by that! The other thing I loved is that the polishes all dry fairly quickly. I'm not super patient when it comes to letting my polish dry, so I was very impressed by the quick dry time of these polishes.

Do you guys have a favorite color from this collection?? It's super hard for me to pick but I think my top 3 are This Isn't Greenland, Less is Norse and Icelanded a Bottle of OPI...but still, I love so many of them!!

Make sure to grab this collection for yourself. Trust me. You won't regret it!

FLORAL SKULL NAIL ART/BIG BEAUTY BANG WATER DECALS

Happy Sunday!
I hope you're having a great day :)

Today I have some beautiful Water decals to share with you from Big Beauty Bang.

These decals are stunning because they combine flowers with skulls and they just work really well together! The moment I saw them I knew I would have to show my mom and most likely create a design for her as well...so this post is a double nail art post, since I have 2 designs to show you! ;)

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**





I didn't want to use all of the decals on myself since the designs are so intricate. I felt if I used all of them at one time the design would look really busy and it would take away from how beautiful each image is...plus by not using them all on myself I was able to give my mom an awesome nail art design as well! ...She was very happy about that! Lol!


(I realize this isn't the best macro photo, but I at least wanted you guys to be able to see the skull in this design).



The bigger skull designs are absolutely amazing!! The pink skull has a crown, that unfortunately was cut off on both nails because its a large decal. And the other two are just as beautiful! I think that by using white on one nail with a pop of pink on the other was enough to tone it down a bit, while at the same time accentuating the skulls and really bringing the whole design together.



Aren't they stunning!?

You can find these skulls here: Floral/Skull Water Decals, and btw right now they are on sale for $0.99!! Plus, use my coupon code TNNA for an additional 10% off!!

BEAUTY BIG BANG WATER DECAL REVIEW AND VIDEO

Good afternoon Lovelies!

I'm back with a fun review and video for you guys! :) I was recently contacted by BeautyBigBang to review some products. BeautyBigBang is a beauty retailer specializing in all kinds of cosmetics and nail art products. You can check out their site here: https://www.beautybigbang.com

I also decided to create a short video for you guys, which you can view on my YouTube channel -Playful Polishes.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy in the Tabs above. **


Get these decals for yourself here: here





These decals were really easy to use and the designs are gorgeous and so detailed! 


I opted not to use all of the decals at once (this makes them last longer and makes it so you can create multiple looks with one set of decals). I also didn't use one set on one hand and the other set on the other (as shown in the decal pic), I decided to combine the similar images so that the designs on one hand would be the same...and then I added some colorful rhinestones and a matte topcoat to make the design pop!





I really enjoyed creating this look! And I have received a lot of compliments on my nails :)

If you would like to recreate this look for yourself I created a short video to show you how to apply the decals, and the rest is pretty simple. See how to create this look here.

WRENN POLISH SWATCH & REVIEW WITH UNICORN NAIL ART!!

Hello lovelies!!

I sincerely apologize for the lack of posts. I have been super busy so far this year! If you follow me on IG you may have read that I started a new full-time job in January as well as started Dental Assisting School in March so I haven't had much time to do my nails...obviously I have still been doing them at least once a week when I find the time (it's kind of a relaxing/balancing thing for me to do :P plus I can't stand when my nails grow out and look like they need some TLC), so I've kept up with posting on IG, but haven't been able to post much anywhere else.

But I am excited to have some new, beautiful polishes to share with you guys today! :D

These polishes I'm going to be sharing with you are from Wrenn Polish...and if you have never heard of Wrenn Polish you are really missing out! Not only do they have some beautiful nail polishes...they also have some of the most beautiful gemstone jewelry!! I don't wear a lot of jewelry myself, but I seriously want 1 of everything they have in their store! :P So I highly recommend checking out her website if you are a polish lover and/or a jewelry lover: www.shopwrenn.com

Now let's get into these polishes! 

**These polishes were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the Tabs above. **


Up first is Green with Wrennvy, a stunning teal green shimmer polish. 
The application was very smooth and was mostly opaque with 1 coat, I used 2 to ensure full coverage...and I have to tell you that I did not want to take this polish off once I put it on! The shimmer is stunning and the color is just so fun and eye catching :D


Next up we have Passionfruit Pink, a lovely nude/pink with gold shimmer. The way the light makes the gold pop out with this pink makes it such a fun and unique polish! I can tell already that it is definitely one I will wear often.


I'm a sucker for these deep red/purple colors and this one had me like Jim Carrey in The Mask when his eyes are popping out of his head! HAHAHA! I'm not sure what it is about this shade of red polishes, because I'm not the biggest fan of regular red polish...but I definitely love this one!

This is Uncorked, and was almost completely opaque with 1 coat, I applied 2 to ensure full coverage. 


And last up...this is Happy Thoughts, an absolutely GORGEOUS purplish/pink holo! Now I just have to tell you that I have other holo polishes and powders that I think are beautiful and I really like them...but I don't have one that has a colored tint to it like this one does, so this one just has me in a puddle on the floor lol thats literally the best way to describe it! haha I just love it...and the pictures don't even do it enough justice!

I included a sun shot of this polish (below) and even though its a great photo that shows all of the rainbow colors in the polish, it doesn't capture how amazing this polish really is...which means you'll just have to get it for yourself to see ;)


So once I saw this polish I automatically knew it was the perfect base for some Unicorn stamping from my new Stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. 
What do you think?



So there you have it! 4 Beautiful polishes from Wrenn polish. I am beyond impressed with these polishes! I knew they were beautiful when I first saw photos of them, but they just blew me away when I swatched them...and I'm honestly not just saying that. I would absolutely recommend you grab any of these polishes because they are great quality, they apply so easily, they're stunning and they are very unique which makes them even more fun!

Grab any of these polishes and more plus lots of fun jewelry at www.wrennpolish.com and make sure to follow them on IG as well!
