Hi All! Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going well!
I’m here with a beautiful nail polish review. I was sent these Morgan Taylor polishes for my honest review.
Morgan Taylor’s spring collection is so stunning! It is the Editor’s Picks collection.
Spring is such a great time to wear softer shades like nudes and pinks. This is a very feminine collection that I LOVE!
The shades from left to right are:
Barely Buff — Palest pink creme
I Speak Chic — Taupe nude creme
Call My Blush — Soft sheer creme
On Cloud Mine — Sheer peachy pink
It’s Your Mauve — Mauve creme
Going Voque — Antique rose creme
What is so exciting for me about this collection is that I will wear every shade in this collection. I also love the formula of these cremes. The are opaque and cover well in 2 or 3 coats. They do chip after a few days, but most nail polishes do. They stay fresh looking for most of the week.
These retail for $9.50 a bottle and the mini 4-pack is $14.95, which is nice if you want to try more than one shade. It includes On Cloud Mine, Going Vogue. I Speak Chic and It’s Your Mauve. The collection is available for a limited time now at Sally Beauty.
I’m really enjoying these polishes. What shades of nail polish are you loving right now?
Hi all! Madam Glam has released a festive holographic nail polish collection for December. They sent a few of the shades to me for my honest review.
Madam Glam offers Vegan, Cruelty-Free, 9-Free and Gluten-Free nail and gel polishes. They are easy to use and so long lasting when cured!
I received the four beautiful shades above — Candy Cane, Let it Snow, Holo Night and Mistletoe.
The shades are:
Candy Cane — Dark pink with gold sparkles
Let it Snow — Dark blue with gold sparkles
Holo Night — Shimmery gray with silver and gold sparkles
Mistletoe — Green with gold sparkles
Here’s wet swatches, I haven’t cured the nails. But this shows the pretty shades! There are 6 more shimmery shades in the collection. At the moment they are sold out, but hopefully there will be a restock.
Have you tried Madam Glam before? Do you like gel polish?

I haven’t tried these yet, but I’m hoping to get some to review for you. I think that Tutti Fruitti, Buttered Popcorn, Island Punch, Berry Blue and Peach sound amazing! But, I think they all would make gorgeous nail looks for spring!
Hi all! I hope you are doing well this Saturday and it’s not too cold where you are!
I was sent some beautiful nail polishes from Lauren B. and Morgan Taylor for my honest review.
I love polishing my nails holiday and season appropriate shades. The ones below are so fresh and pretty for Valentine’s Day, or any time!
The first polishes are from Lauren B. and are great choices for Valentines Day or any Date Night:
Lauren B. Beauty 33 Carats
Lauren B. Beauty Laurel Canyon Lover
Lauren B. Beauty LOVE
Lauren B. Beauty Rose Bowl
Lauren B. Beauty in “33 Carats”– ($19 USD) Sounds like a rock that Elizabeth Taylor might wear, and that’s what inspired this polish. Packed with ultra-fine flecks of silver glitter (in a range of sizes), it’s diamond-powder sparkly and festive without being gaudy.
Lauren B. Beauty in “Laurel Canyon Lover” —($18 USD) A perfect balance between true red and burgundy, this shade looks sexy, festive and modern all at once. The deeply pigmented formula levels out perfectly, leaving nails smooth and jewel-like.
Lauren B. Beauty in “LOVE.”–($18 USD) A cool, sheer petal pink, this loving shade gives you the look of immaculately manicured nails with an extra burst of glossiness.
Lauren B. Beauty in “Rose Bowl”–($18 USD) Less traditional than red but just as rich. This vibrant, purple-tinged pink has a hint of delicate silver shimmer, lending it cool, unexpected depth.
Young, Wild and Free-sia
Follow the Petals
