Hi all! I hope your Sunday is off to a great start!

I’m back with a nail polish collection review.  I was sent this for my honest review:

This is the Morgan Taylor Illusions 2019 collection, adding to the brand’s luxurious Platinum range! All six shades have a reflective color shift to them.

“We are so excited to be bringing out the newest installment in the Platinum line!” say namesakes Morgan Haile and Taylor Daniel. “The Illusions collection has a fun and unique duo-chrome finish offering shades that can be worn in the Summer and even into the Fall and Winter!”

Here’s a more close-up photo of the shades.  They are so pretty! Morgan Taylor Lacquers apply smoothly and last a few days without chipping.

Perfect Polish For Your Valentine’s Day Manicure From Lauren B. and Morgan Taylor!

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 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.

Color goes full bloom with Morgan Taylor’s Spring collection The Color Of Petals Professional Nail Lacquer Collection! Inspired by the soft and subtle colors of your favorite flowers. This collection features a range of plush pastels in shades of pretty pinks, toned-down nudes, and pops of peach and purple to provide the perfect finishing touch to any colorful springtime look.

There are 5 shades available at Ulta — From left to right in the photo above are:

I Feel Flowerful — Light Nude Creme

Merci Bouquet — Lilac Creme

Young, Wild and Free-sia — Soft Peach Creme

Follow the Petals — Pink Pearl

Strike a Poise (not shown) — Blush Pink Creme

These are the Spring collection, but the shades are so fresh and beautiful, that they are perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!

I am also going to be posting these collections on my Instagram @fortyflirtyfab today and tomorrow.  Check it out.  I would love to have you follow me there and will follow you as well!

Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer collection!

Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer collection!

The Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer ($8.00 USD) collection is a quick-drying formula that is available in long-lasting colors. Borghese invites you to discover the new Rapido Fast Dry Lacquer collection in bold brights and chic Italian neutrals. Evoking all the vivid colors of a garden in bloom, and the sophisticated hues of city style, Borghese’s new nail lacquers complement every wardrobe.

These long-wearing, nail-strengthening lacquers contain Borghese’s exclusive Aqua di Vita complex to help restore moisture and balance, while Micronized Gemstones add strength and brilliance. Each shade comes with a special Duale Curve Tip Brush custom designed to hug the shape of your nail for smooth, flawless application that lasts up to seven days. The rich, saturated hues are free of DBP’s, Toluene and added Formaldehyde. 

The Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Lacquer Collection includes 12 shades ranging from mocha to violet to silver. 

What I think: Like the claim, these polishes dry very fast, even the second or third coat. And you will need more than one coat since it applies thin. But after a few coats, the shade is very true and pretty.  It chips after a couple of days, but I just apply another coat or two to get me through the week! Well worth the $8.

You can purchase at drugstores nationwide or www.ulta.com. Enjoy!
