Hi there, my darlings! So, this blogger is now officially unemployed. Sigh. I've been in a bit of a funk lately but I'm trying to keep my chin up! As I spend the next few weeks job-searching and trying to figure out my next step, I'll still be posting regularly on the blog--I mean, this is my outlet, my stress relief, my support system. And thankfully, I have lots to share! Today's not-so-rare-in-the-future Saturday is all about two things that can usually cheer me right up--puns and gorgeous holos! I present to you Celestial Cosmetics' new Pun-tastic collection!


Before we get to swatches, let's take a minute to talk about the formula and application of these holos. Across the board, each applied just beautifully and most were perfectly opaque in just 2 easy coats--Nicki sure knows how to do holos right! Unless specifically mentioned. the swatches below show just 2 coats of each polish, topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. Each and every polish in this particular collection is just stunning and I'm really excited to share my swatches!


Don't Listen He's Lion is described as a "bright green linear holo, with green gold colour shifting flakes." If you love green and love flakies, this one is a must-have!










With flash!




Irr-Elephant is described as a "bright pink linear holo with silver flakes." Beautiful, feminine pink and those flakies do give it that extra edge!










With flash!




I Don't Give A Fox is described as a "bright blue linear holo with blue pearl flakes." One of my faves in this collection, this is perfect for those Summer days at the beach!










With flash!




This Is Panda-Monium is described as a "bright pink leaning red linear holo with a dash of iridescent flakes to add some personality." Another instant fave, I love this rich magenta shade!










With flash!




Freaking Meow-T is described as a "blue leaning green linear holo with a subtle red sparkle." This one wore pretty much blue/turquoise on me and was very similar to I Don't Give A Fox but I loved it nonetheless! It has just the perfect touch of that aquatic feel to make me happy!









With flash!




Toucan Play That Game is described as a "darker bright purple linear holo with purple green colour shift flakes." Ok, now I know I pegged a couple as faves already but this is my ultimate fave of this collection--this rich, lush purple is to DIE FOR!








With flash!

After the giveaway ends, winners will be emailed and will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is picked. The maker will send prizes to their winners directly!

Hi there, my darlings! Today, as part of our featured indie series, I have a trio of polishes handpicked just for me by Taryn of Anchor & Heart Lacquer! She asked me what my favorite colors are and chose 3 beauties from her My Anchors, My Friends collection for me to share with you all. Let's take a peek!


The Sincerest is described as a "creamy light purple crelly (2-3 coats for opacity) with red/violet shifting ultrachrome flakies, shifting red/blue holo micro-glitter, and violet shimmer." Lovely formula and application--this polish is pretty much fully opaque in 2 coats but I added a third for more of those flakies. The swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's Hk Girl topcoat. Such a gorgeous, dusty purple!










Mattefied with OP Matte Finish topcoat :






The Stubborn is described as a "dusty mid-toned blue with violet/blue ultrachrome flakies, strong blue shimmer, as well as a bit of pale blue holo micro glitter." Smooth, easy formula and application--again, opaque in 2 coats but I added a third for more depth. The swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's Hk Girl topcoat. LOVE this shade of blue!










Mattefied with OPI Matte Finish topcoat :






The Vivacious is described as a "raspberry red linear holo with strong gold shimmer, and a scattered dark pink holo micro-glitter." Perfect, squishy jelly holo formula and application--the swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 generous coat of Glisten & Glow's Hk Girl topcoat. The holo is just an accent in this beauty but that gold shimmer is so intense! You already know this is my fave!










With flash!




So there you have it, my darlings! These beauties, along with the rest of the My Anchors, My Friends collection are all currently available on Anchor & Heart Lacquers's store HERE for the price of $9.50 for a full-size, 0.5 oz bottle.
