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!

Sally Hansen New Fall Nail Polish Releases

Hi all!  I hope you are having a great weekend so far! I’m reviewing some fun Sally Hansen polishes that I received for my honest review.

I went a while this summer without  wearing polish and not really taking care of my nails.  So I’ve been trying to keep my nails polished and  looking good for fall!

Sally Hansen All Hail Nude Nails
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Modern Neutrals

Nude nails are definitely an accessory that enhances your complexion but finding the perfect shade can be overwhelming. Sally Hansen has introduced Color Therapy Modern Neutrals, a collection that offers deep jewel hues and flesh tones. The line consist of 6 hues in varying finishes that also help to restore nails without sacrificing luminous color.

The shades from left to right are:

Dusty Plum — Mauve
Pink and Harmony — Iridescent medium pink
Falling Deep — Crimson shimmer
Bronze Reflection — Multi-faceted copper shimmer
Cashmere Calm — Warm buff nude
Diffused Light — Rich cream
I love these different shades of  neutral polishes! I love all of these for the fall and winter.  The Color Therapy line is so nice.  They are great on the nails, and they last a while without chipping.
These can be purchased at mass market retailers.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Color Whirl
Sally Hansen says it’s time to liven up those manis with the latest installment to their Miracle Gel lineup featuring the NEW Miracle Gel Color Whirl! It’s an overcoat that creates a marble effect over any Miracle Gel polish, so you’ll still get the great chip resistant gel-like wear you expect, but now with a mesmerizing design!
This innovative formula works with all your favorite classic Miracle Gel shades, or any on-trend seasonal colors to give you a new eye-catching look every time! Miracle Gel Color Whirl is available in two color-transforming “overcoats”, Steam Punk and Marble-ous, that work with the Miracle Gel 2-step system giving you a new salon-inspired look in just one swipe, right in the comfort of your own home!
I received these to test and I find them so interesting.  I first applied them like normal nail polish and swiped the brush over my whole nail.  It didn’t really work.  The polish broke up a little bit but not enough to look marbled. So then I read the instructions and you are supposed to wipe off the excess polish and drag it over the nail in short strokes. That worked.  The polish broke up to look more spotty.  It’s actually pretty fun to use.  I love using the lighter color Marble-ous over a light shade for a cool textured look.  The black looks really cool over red!
These are also available at mass market retailers.
