"There's nothing better than the first signs of Spring and all the joy that it brings! Our Spring 2015 collection is inspired by sun-kissed days and lush gardens blooming, the Easter season, and Pantone's 2015 Spring color, Aquamarine," says KBShimmer owner Christy Rose. "What better way to celebrate that Spring has sprung then with creamy pastels, metallic glitters, and a touch of sparkle and shine?"


 
Eyes White Open: A white cream with two coats coverage; a staple color for any girl's nail polish collection.
 
Meow or Never: Based on the Pantone spring color Glacier Gray, this polish is a very pale gray, almost white in color with pops of purple, gray, periwinkle and sky blue.
 
Sweet Egg-scape: A pale, bubblegum pink polish. Glitters like, pastel aqua star glitters, coral triangles, lavender dots, red squares and silver holo hexes swim among the pink base like a decorated Easter egg.
 
Blush Money: Based on the 2015 Pantone Color, Strawberry Ice, this peachy-rose colored polish shows off gold shimmer indoors and a linear holographic rainbow shines while outside.
 
To Peach His Own: The pale peach polish shines with holographic glitters in lime green, gold, violet and magenta.
 
Ins and Sprouts: Like a new bud popping through the soil, this pale green citron colored polish is alive with linear holographic shine.
 
Cool Hand Cuke: This pale minty green polish is loaded with pastel glitters in circles, triangles, stars and hexes. A touch of holographic sparkle completes this pastel polish.
 
Funky Cold Patina: Like a long forgotten ancient copper statue turned blue green in color, this polish features a cool turquoise green base, with pops of metallic copper, blue and purple.
 
Wind Swarm: Based on the Spring 2015 Pantone color, Aquamarine, Wind Swarm features a pale sky blue base, a mix of purple, gold, white and pink glitters, while a hint of micro glitters offers a bit of sparkle to enjoy in the sun.
 
Blue-d Lines: Pale blue in color, this cool toned polish shines with linear holographic sparkle.
 
Thistle Be The Day: A pale pinkish purple that shines in the sun with a linear holographic rainbow.
 
I'm So Sweet Pea: The palest of purples bases set off an explosion of glitter in pink, mint, purple and turquoise.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Wallpaper - Look 4

I'm sneaking this one in at the last minute this month! I have been out of town on business and pretty busy with work so I feel like I haven't done any nail looks for a while!

 I had seen THIS look on Pinterest while browsing wallpaper and knew I wanted to do something inspired by it :)



Products Used:
-OPI - My Vampire is Buff
-Konad - Black
-Cheeky Jumbo Plate 3
-Gold Glequins

In general I love the feel of black with gold as accents in the home (just not my home) but some swanky apartment or something Hollywood glam. This look turned out pretty much I was hoping, minus the streaking of the black when I added topcoat. Boo. (Do you have any good black stamping polishes that don't smudge with topcoat? What brands do you use?)

Let's see how the other ladies are wrapping up this Wallpaper month below!

Love Story by Incoco Review

*Press Sample

Today I sharing with you three shades from the Incoco Love Story Collection, for Valentines Day 2015, so let's jump right in!

Lovey Dovey ($8.99): Hearts within hearts on a soft, pearly pink



Hello Sweetheart ($7.99): Pink glitter with touches of silver glitz



Lace Allure ($8.99): Seductive black lace on shimmery silver

 

These are perfect shades for Valentine's Day. My ABSOLUTE favorite of these 3 is definitely Lace Allure; unfortunately it was the first one that I put on so I wasn't able to keep it on too long before trying the other designs. It seems the shimmery appliques are the easiest to apply (most flexible).

As you know, I love nail appliques and the Incoco ones are great; they come in a lot of different patterns and finishes and have quick delivery as well.

A little more from Incoco, "Incoco has revolutionized nail beauty with 100% real nail polish appliques - not stickers! Each applique includes a base, color, and top coat of real nail polish and can be gently stretched for a perfect fit. The appliques provide a brilliant, salon-quality manicure in minutes with no drying time, smudges or streak. Beauty Meets Innovation."

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Wallpaper - Look 3

TGIF!! I am so glad that it's Friday; my work week had been crazy so it will be nice for a little break this weekend.

For my third look I decided to do nails inspired by actual walls in my house! (Bonus! Awkward photo by my kitchen wall looking a hot mess hahah)


But let's get back to the nails!



Polishes Used:
-Morgan Taylor - Ahead of the Game
-China Glaze - Solar Power
-NYC - Royal Chic

The walls in my kitchen are yellow and another yellow with some crazy brown stripes. I think I did a good job of re-creating these on the nails. They also sort of remind me of crazy banana flavored nails or something.
