Laquerlicious Sip Of Summer

So I found out over the weekend that my sister who is expecting, is having a boy! I am so excited! I've been hoping she was going to have a boy from the beginning. Now I can officially start buying lots of cute stuff! Also, is there anyone who is keeping up with the hockey playoffs? I've been on the edge of my seat watching my LA Kings play against the San Jose Sharks. I'm hoping they'll be able to win the last and final Game 7 in the first series tonight. Fingers crossed!

Anyhow, today I have the last of the three new glitters from Laquerlicious. Here is Sip of Summer!

Sip of Summer is a super fun and cute matte glitter topper. It's a mix of pastel hex glitter, star glitter, and awesome triangle glitter! Some of the colors include blue, pink, purple, green, yellow, and white. Again, I let my bottle sit upside down for a bit before applying. I've been doing this out of habit for almost all glitters lately because it's super helpful. I used one coat of Sip of Summer over two coats of Barielle Swizzle Stix. I was going to add a second coat to just my pinky nail but I totally forgot to do that. I smudged a few of my nails when they were wet but it was all good after it dried. I topped everything off with a coat of Rica Glossy Glam.

I really love Sip of Summer! It's a fun glitter that will make any mani stand out. I couldn't stop staring at my nails when wearing it. It made me feel all happy inside.

Laquerlicious Blowin' Bubbles

I hope you all had a great Easter. Mine was very laid back but I didn't mind one bit since I worked a lot the week of and a break was more than welcome. I'm finally back today with another pretty glitter from the indie brand, Laquerlicious. It's Blowin' Bubbles, the second of the three new glitters I mentioned in a few posts back. After doing a nail wheel test swatch of it over Zoya Carter, I fell in love with the combo and had to do a full mani of it. Here it is!

Blowin' Bubbles is an super girly and sweet glitter topper. There are circle glitters, but they're "donut" glitters. I've never had a polish with them before but I like it! It's a fun shape. There's also silver, blue, and black stars, silver holographic glitter, pastel hexes, super tiny circle glitter, and neon pink glitters. I just love this polish!! It's so pretty and I especially love how it looks over Carter. At first I thought about using it over a lighter base but I'm glad I went with a darker one. It shows how versatile this glitter is. Application with Blowin' Bubbles was a breeze! I let my bottle sit upside down for a bit and it really did help because so much glitter came out. All I needed was one coat. Honestly though, I mainly turned it upside down for the circles. I'm sure I would have gotten great results regardless.

If you've never tried Laquerlicious before, you are definitely missing out! Michelle's glitter bombs are worth checking out but if you're not into glitter, don't worry. She's got something for just about everyone. I have so many I need to wear and show here.

Here's the link if you're interested!

My Never Ending Haul Part 1!

I've been wanting to do a haul post for the longest time but I've been putting it off. I finally took one afternoon about two weeks ago and all I did was take a bazillion photos of polish. The last haul I did was after my vacation in Las Vegas during the summer, so keep in mind that the polishes I'm going to be showing you in these upcoming posts were bought over the course of 9 months. Some were bought from the actual website and others from blog sales. Also, I'm grouping everything together by brand and not when they were bought. Without further ado, here are my pretties!

So that's it for Part 1 of my haul! I haven't gotten around to wearing most of these, as well as the others I'm going to show you in Part 2, so in a way, this is a look into my massive amount of untrieds. I already have part 2 and 3 ready to go so those will be up very soon. How was your week? I've actually been working a lot this week but it's been nice keeping busy. I'm heading into work very soon, so if I don't post anything tomorrow, Happy Easter! I hope it's a great one. Thank you for stopping by!
