A Crown of Thistles

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Friday! 

 While I was going through my photo folders I came across a small gold mine of un-posted goodies. Among these was this swatch of a most magnificent shade from the A England Elizabeth and Mary Collection. If I am not mistaken, this collection was released around the holidays in 2014. Good news though, these beauties are still available for purchase :D! 
 Lets talk about A England Crown of Thistles. This beauty is a stunning Purple holographic, like only A England can produce. There is something about the way A England does their holos that is just magical. They are like holos within holos. To my eye it looks like a simultaneous linear, and scattered holo effect. However, nothing about the effect is overwhelming. This is one of those holos that is just as stunning in Sunlight as it is indoors. This is a red-leaning Purple, which makes it insanely flattering and easy on the eyes. 
  The formula on this color is your usual A England perfection. I've come to expect nothing less from this great brand. This baby went on opaque and dense, yet smooth and buttery. I used two effortless coats for my manicure. However, I could have very easily gotten away with one coat of this color. 

 A England shades retail for $10. For more information about where to purchase A England shades in your country you can visit [THIS LINK].

Thank you for coming by today and happy Friday!

Oldies, but Goodies... And much overdue Updates

(**Press Samples**)
Hello and happy Tuesday my lovely readers! 

 It's been how long now? Much too long... I don't have any great excuses for my absence, not really. I wish I had a good reason for my slight disappearance. In some ways, I suppose I do. Sometimes life really does get crazy. Sometimes, priorities get shifted and things happen that make you really sit down and think about what is important to you at that specific time in your life. I really don't wanna go into boring and sad things... But please know this, I miss sharing my work. I miss interacting with all the wonderful people who come by to read my ramblings and look at my silly nails. I don't know what the future holds for myself, or LTHP... But, I do know that I miss "wasting" countless hours painting my nails and my face. I look forward to having the space, the time and motivation to get back to doing just that. 
I've had this post in my drafts for ...????... A LONG TIME... A very long time. All these shades were released for Summer 2014 by Colors by Llarowe. Once again, I'm finding myself with no good excuses as to why these didn't go up much, much sooner... Better late than never, I suppose?

How I Wore It: The Cirque Burlesque Collection

(**Press Samples**)
 Happy Wednesday beautiful readers! Today I want to share this look which features Four beautiful new holographic shades by Cirque Nail Polish. This release is inspired by all things Burlesque. It was an absolute must to do something sexy and to find a way to wear all Four of them at once. They are entirely marvelous, and insanely beautiful. 

Cirque Boudoir- This beauty is a classic Fall plum with the added twist of a beautiful holographic finish. 
Cirque Harlow- A lovely shade of antique gold with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Josephine- An unique shade of deep evergreen with an amazing holographic finish. 
Cirque Trocadero- A classic royal blue with a holographic finish.

  For my Index and Middle nails I brought all Four shades together in a four-way gradient by using [THIS] method.  My Ring finger was stamped using a Bundle Monster plate and some Konad Black special polish. I accented my Pinkie and Thumbs with simple touches of Black stones. 
  All of these shades have a perfect formula. They were all opaque in Two easy and perfectly smooth coats. The Burlesque collection is available now from CirqueColors.com and each shade retails for $13.
Is this not the sexiest little collection you've seen in some time? It definitely is for me, I just love them!

How I Wore It: KBShimmer Six Year Anniversary Celebration Trio

(**Press Samples**)
  There is a birthday party on my nails and you are invited! KBShimmer is getting ready to celebrate Six years in the biz and they have given us a festive little nail color trio to party with! I'm sure the past Six years have been a whirlwind for Christy Rose, the brains behind this amazing brand. I want to take a second to congratulate Christy on this milestone, and wish her many more to come. Between KBShimmer's yummy bath and body products, and all the amazing polishes they continue to put out season after season I know they will have many more years to come.  To celebrate KBShimmer's Sixth b-day Christy created a new trio of polishes. Two cremes and a new textured shade make up this party of Three. A bit more of awesome news... KBShimmer now also carries an awesome range of nail vinyls
 The amazing sparkler I am holding, and wearing on my pinkie and index nail, is KBShimmer Hexy Bikini. This textured glitterbomb is packed with prismatic silver glitter and accented by a rainbow of prismatic hexes that perfectly jump off the textured silver base. The formula, while dense, is very easy to work with. I used two easy coats on my textured nails. 
 On my ring and middle nail I used a base of KBShimmer Shore Thing. This shade is an awesome minty/ aqua/ teal. It is one of those shape shifter shades that will look a bit different from person to person, and great on everyone. This shade has a nice creamy formula that does great in Two coats. I topped my ring nails off with KBShimmer Scribble Me This, from the later Summer 2014 collection. I love the festive mix of glitters and shapes. 
 The final touch was adding a "scalloped" nail using some nail vinyls and KBShimmer Beach Please. This shade is a perfect vivid magenta creme. This shade has such an amazing formula! It goes un very smooth and builds up to opacity easily. 

 I finished off all my nails (except the textured ones) with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. This celebration trio will be available from KBShimmer on August 1st!! And now... I am off to find some CAKE... all this talk of birthdays and partying have me wanting cake! 

Thanks for coming by today!

China Glaze Rainbows and Trippy Stamping

(**press samples**)
  On Wednesdays we wear RAINBOWS! With this colorful mani I mark the start of a "new era" in LTHP-ness. And by "new" I mean more like the good 'ol days when my blog was more of my nail polish diary, and not so much a review archive. With this small step "backwards" I hope to re-ignite my blogging flame. I will admit that this mani definitely re-awakened something in me... because COLORS! More after the jump ♥.

Fun with Pretty & Polished Summer Fun Collection

(**Press Samples**)
It is Monday... 

... and the only thing that could make that fact a bit more bearable is these amazing Summer polishes from Pretty & Polished.  Today I want to share a look and some swatches I did (with and of) the Summer Fun collection. This release consists of Six new Summer holo beauties. 

 For the vertical gradient I was inspired by Marta of Chit Chat Nails and her textured rainbow look. I really loved her color choices and placement. For my version of Marta's look I decided to go all holo with Three of the shades from the Summer Fun collection. On my index nail I did Three thin coats of Pretty & Polished Firefly. This shade is an unbelievable, neon lime holographic. If glow sticks could also glow holo, they would look like Firefly. On my pinkie and thumbnails I wore P&P Living in Flip Flops. This shade is a wonderful grapey- purple holo. I used Three thin coats of this shade as well. 
 On my gradient nails I started with a coat of O.P.I's Put a Coat on (white base) and top coated it to create a glassy smooth white base. On my middle gradient nail I used P&P Firefly and P&P Lakefront. For my ring nail gradient I used P&P Lakefront and P&P Living in Flip Flops. Lakefront, btw, is the most beautiful shade of deep teal holographic.
 These pretties were soooo amazing to work with. And, as you can see, they make for beautiful gradients!! I topped my nails off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. Side note: I absolutely adore how my ring nail looks like the most kick ass duochrome there ever was :D.

Pretty & Polished Poolside- This refreshing beauty is a classic sky blue linear holo. I used three thin coats for my swatch.

 Pretty & Polished Summer Love- This pretty is a beautiful shade of light red linear holographic. It is possible my eyes are playing tricks on me, but I could have sworn I also saw a bit of a pink shimmer hidden in this shade. I love that it is a softer shade of red. I used Three thin coats for my swatch.

Pretty & Polished Sandy Shores- LONG LIVE NUDE HOLOS!!!!!!! This outstanding beauty is a creamy shade of sandy beige with a delicate linear holo shimmer. The holo in this shade is subtle and beautiful. I used Three thin coats for my swatch.

 All of these shades have amazing formulas. With holo polishes I always feel like a good formula cannot be stressed enough. I really adore the range of perfect Summery colors Chels did for this release. The Summer Fun collection is available now from the Pretty & Polished online shop and retails for $9.00/color.

 I would have to say my faves are definitely Firefly, Lakefront, Sandy Shores and Living in Flip Flops. But honestly, they are all wonderful and each one put a smile on my face. Which ones are you loving most?

Thanks for coming by today loves!!

KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers & Right as Reign

(**Press Samples**)
Hi guys and happy thursday! 

 I'm not feeling particularly chatty today.. So I'ma just get on with it... Another day, another KBShimmer pairing ;). 

 This regal pairing comes to you courtesy of the KBShimmer Early Summer collection. I chose to pair KBShimmer Run! It's the Coppers and Right as Reign because they looked so perfectly sexy together. Run! It's the Coppers is a magnificent shade of true Copper toned linear holographic. The holographic effect is outstanding in this color, and practically impossible to capture in photos. 
 Right as Reign is a perfect shade if Indigo crelly. I love that this shade leans more toward the deep violet side and not Blue. I didn't know it but I had been craving this color for a while now. The formula on this baby is just amazing and does great in Two easy coats. I love how inky and rich this color is. 

I hope you guys are having a wonderful day!! Me, I'm definitely ready for the weekend....

How I Wore It: KBShimmer Goldie Rocks & Let's not Coral

(**Press Samples**)
Are you sure it's Tuesday?! 

 Because I am lagging like it is a Monday, and I do not appreciate that :-S. As a friend of mine told me on Facebook; "when Tuesday feels like Monday it's a Netflix in bed kind of day". Trust me, I fully plan to heed her advice before I spontaneously combust. But first! Lemme show you some nails! 

This Summery look features some of the beautiful new shades from the KBShimmer Early Summer 2014 collection. I started with a base of KBShimmer Let's not Coral. This shade is a perfect pink-toned Coral. I absolutely adore that it is pink-tones as most of my corals tend to lean to orange. I used two easy and perfect coats of this shade. 
 Once my base color was dry I used the half-moon nail vinyls to tape off my moons. To make my nails pop I went with KBShimmer Goldie Rocks. This pretty is a magical shade of bright Gold, and extremely linear holo. Photos could never do this shade justice as it is just so amazing and multi- dimensional in person. 
 I topped my nails of with a coat of KBShimmer clearly on top to smooth out the "seam" of my moons. I adore this color combination. There is something classic, yet playful and trendy about these and I love it! 

 I'm gonna go on the prowl for chocolate and wine now... That should make today better, right? XOXO

KBShimmer PT Young Thing & She Twerks Out

(**Press Samples**)
Happy almost end of the week!! 

 Today I want to share a look with some AMAZING shades from the KBShimmer Early Summer 2014 collection. For this look I decided to pair one of the extreme new holos with one of the beautiful textures Christy released. I never cease to be amazed by beautiful Silver holographic polishes. Part of me always thinks they will all look the same, but they never do. Basically, a Silver holo is like Black eye liner, or Red lipstick... You cannot have too many, and no two are ever the same. 
 I was also very pleasantly surprised with the texture I chose to wear for this mani. The look of it is super unique and complex. I was so happy to see that the KBShimmer textures are unlike any texture out there.
 The outstanding silver holo is the, cleverly named, PT Young Thing. As the name suggests it is an intense platinum (silver) toned linear holo. When I say intense, I mean INTENSE. You can see rainbows on your nails even when it is not in direct sunlight. The formula on this color is fantastic and does well in Two easy coats. A perk to this holo is that the addition of a top coat does not mess with the intensity of the holographic effect.


 The accent shade is one of the new textures. This pretty is She Twerks Out (lololololol). This pretty is a perfect teal jelly base saturated with matte and sparkling glitter. I love the how the blend of green, lilac and aqua glitters give this color its texture as well as a beautifully complex, layered, look. This color dried to a satin- matte finish and gets the texture from all the glitter packed in the base. The formula was suuuper easy to work with. I only needed Two coats for full opacity. Even though the surface was fairly smooth and the textured nails were not snagging, I chose to top coat them with a coat of Cult Nails Wax That... top coat. I didn't want to alter the matte finish, but I did want to ensure a quick dry time and extended wear. 

 Seriously though, how amazing is that holo... Even in artificial light you can still see intense rainbows! 

KBShimmer rocks my socks off and that is all there is to it ♥.

How I Wore It: KBShimmer In Bare Form and Lo and Be Bold

(**Press Samples**)
Hi and happy Tuesday! 

  I hope everyone had a good and safe Memorial Day weekend. My weekend was hella chill and awesome. I got to go to my first "hoop jam", met some amazing people, learned new tricks and got all bruised up from practicing said tricks haha. 
 So, since I got in the KBShimmer Early Summer collection, they are all I've been wearing. Much like the Spring collection, these were much too awesome to just swatch. I ended up wearing most of them as "looks" or just paired... because... KBSHIMMAH!!!!! IDK what is this hold this brand has on me, but I love it!


 Less is more when awesome colors are involved :D. For this dotted look I started with a base of KBShimmer In Bare Form. This beautiful nude holographic shade made a great base for some vibrant contrasting dots using KBShimmer Lo and be Bold. I love how the vibrant cobalt blue dots just jump off the nude base. I think I may have a new "favorite" color combination in nude and cobalt. I really love how the colors seem to make each other pop. 

 And here is a quick, sunny, look at In Bare Form. This shade has a fantastic, two coat, formula. I love how creamy this shade is, yet it still remains very linear in the holo effect. A holo for the office? Don't mind if I do! 


 The KBShimmer Early Summer collection is available from kbshimmer.com right meow :D. As you may have guessed.. I shall be sharing my "Early Summer" looks over the coming days ;). 

Thanks for coming by today!

#CFLBeautyBloggers go Purple for Lupus Awareness

(**Press Samples**)
Hi loves!! 

  This Friday some of the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida are linking up with some Purple themed posts. We decided on Purple for the month of May for Lupus Awareness. For my look I decided to got with some elegant v-gap moons in some of my favorite A England shades. 

 photo DSCN0239_zpsa2890979.jpg
 I started with a base of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Purple. This glitter is a sheer purple jelly base packed with tiny shifting glitters. The shift is mainly from purple, to pink to copper. I only did this to give some interest to the nakey part of the nails. The Keancolor glitter is mainly meant to be layered, but it still looked really pretty peeking under my holographic beauties. Then I added a coat of INM Northern Lights to aid in the dry time of the Keancolor glitter. 
 I used single chevron nail vinyls to create my v-gap look. On my Pinkie and Index nail I used A England Fonteyn. This is a marvelous shade of intense silver holographic. For my Purple shade I used A England Lady of the Lake, which is a beautiful, regal, shade of Purple with a subtle holographic effect. I accented my Ring nail with tiny light purple gemstones and sealed it all off with some Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat.


Thanks for coming by today and happy Friday!

KBShimmer Spring 2014 Spamalamadingdong

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Tuesday! 

 Today I want to share some pairings I did with the KBShimmer 2014 Spring collection. I have been so excited about this release for a very long time. I was SO stoked to see that KBShimmer would be venturing into creme territory. In this release Christy gave us Eight brand new creme shades that are absolutely dreamy. She also released Six new crelly-glitters, a new glitter topper, an amazing holo shade as well as a holo top coat. 
 I decided I needed to wear these, not just swatch. I wore them as pairs, bringing the cremes and glitters together into funky combinations. 

 All swatches shown with a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. 

KBShimmer Quick and Flirty and KBShimmer Laugh Myself Lilly- Quick and Flirty is a mind blowing, true Purple linear holographic. The holo effect is spectacular in this baby. I love that the holo came through even in artificial lighting. Quick and Flirty has an amazing, two coat, formula. Laugh Myself Lilly is a beautiful, light Aqua  crelly base. Packed in the base are small prismatic twinkling glitter as well as hexes and dots in aqua, lavender, gold and purple. This shade has a great formula and does well in Two easy coats. 
 photo DSCN9056_zps9d4272e0.jpg

KBShimmer Life Rose On and KBShimmer Full Bloom Ahead- KBShimmer Life Rose On is a perfect shade of vivid Magenta creme. The formula on this creme is perfection. I just knew Christy's cremes would be amazing in every way. I used Two coats of this beautiful shade. KBShimmer Full Bloom Ahead is a classic KBShimmer, white-base, crelly. Packed in the White base are hexes in varying sizes and vivid colors. I can pick out navy, orange, aqua, gold, light blue and pink glitter. I used Two easy coats of this beautiful shade. 
 photo DSCN9024_zps6b55faf9.jpg

 This is one of my favorite combinations ever!! I just love the look of a dove gray and a hot coral together. Featured are KBShimmer Belle of the Mall and KBShimmer My Life's Porpoise. KBShimmer Belle of the Mall is a crazy vivid coral-pink jelly base packed full of prismatic hexes in varying sizes. I used Two easy coats of this fun shade. KBShimmer My Life's Porpoise is a perfect shade of creamy dove grey. I used two flawless coats of this beautiful shade. 
 photo DSCN9084_zps2f0081d0.jpg

 So... I dinged my index while taking photos lolol... Featured are KBShimmer Make my Gray and KBShimmer Touch of Glass. KBShimmer Make my Gray is a beautiful, uber muted, grey crelly base. Packed in the base are hexes in bright coral, aqua, black, seafoam and blue. I ADORE this shade and the pops of coral glitter in the muted base. I used two easy coats of this color. KBShimmer A Touch of Glass is a gorg shade of soft Tiffany Blue with a slight hint of shimmer. I used Two easy coats of this shade. 
 photo DSCN9135_zps4a9ce198.jpg

KBShimmer Chick me Out- This baby is a great primary yellow creme. The formula was actually really good! The first coat was a bit streaky. That said, this shade evens out in three thin coats. 
 photo DSCN8622_zps427fd3ef.jpg

KBShimmer Eclipse- This baby is a super opaque Black creme. The formula is impressive, very easy to work with. I used two easy coats of this shade. One can never have too many Black creme polishes. 
 photo DSCN8426_zps679c55f6.jpg
 All of these pretties are available now from KBShimmer.com. I am so happy to see one of my fave indies venturing into creme shades. I can't wait to see what else Christy has in store for us this year. 

Which of these shades are you loving most?

Black.Holo.Texture

(**Press Samples**)
Hi!!

  Know what I've been wanting since the dawn of textures? A Black textured holo.. Doesn't have to be linear. Doesn't have to be the "OMG BEST HOLO EVAR"... I just wanted something Black, textured and sparkly... SO.. I "made" my own ;D. 
 photo DSCN8734_zpsa8c86fd7.jpg
 I started with a a base of China Glaze Bump in the Night. This shade is a super pigmented, true Black, texture. Bump in the Night is a creamy texture. Meaning, it has no sparkles whatsoever and dries to that cool stucco finish I love so much. Once I applied my Two coats of BITN I waited for it to dry thoroughly. It goes without saying that I did NOT top coat my texture. 
 To give my Black base that extra holo punch I layered one thin and even coat of KBShimmer Prism Break over my texture. Prism Break comes from the KBShimmer Spring 2014 collection. This pretty holographic top coat gave me just the effect I was looking for. I didn't want the holo to take over the base, I just wanted it to give it a sparkly punch.. And a sparkly punch I definitely got. 
 photo DSCN8731_zps1015f00a.jpg
 Layering the holo over a texture kinda "broke up" the holo and gave a cool scattered holo texture effect. Since Prism Break is "thin" enough it gave me the perfect finish of a Black Holo texture. Prism Break was not thick enough to alter the bumpy finish of the black. Prism Break settled into the texture just perfectly. 

 This is Bump in the Night all by itself. Still an amazing polish non the less. IDK why my skin looks so corpsey here... Black polishes can wash me out so bad :S... Anyhow, this shade has an incredible formula and could definitely be a one coater.  
 photo DSCN8694_zpsb5f4ccc6.jpg

 Now I kinda want to layer Prism Break over all my creamy textures, just to see what happens. I really loved this layering. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy Thursday!

Such Magical, Much Pixies

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!

 Did I mention I was on a serious textured kick lately? I mean, seriously... I just cannot stop reaching for textures every time I go to do any mani I intend on wearing for more than a few hours. I am a BIG fan of the ease of texture polishes. Meaning you just need a base coat, one or two coats of a texture and you're done. They dry really quickly and, to me, always look AMAZING.
 This past weekends mani was all about the beautiful Zoya Magical Pixies for Spring 2014. This Trio is made up of Three gorgeous sparkling textures. They all feature a strong holographic twinkle, and lots of chunky glitter. 
Zoya Magical Pixies photo DSCN8568_zpsf9253acc.jpg
  On my thumb and index nails I wore Zoya Lux. Lux is a soft, rose quartz micro sparkle texture base accented by prismatic rose hexes ranging from small to CHUNKY :D. Even though this color is soft and feminine it packs a huge sassy punch thanks to the super sparkly finish. 
 On my middle nail I wore Zoya Cosmo. Cosmo is the bright Silver sister of Lux. She is basically the same concept, but in an insanely beautiful Diamond- Silver color. Last, but not least, is Zoya Vega which is the Sky Blue version of Lux and Cosmo
 These three beauties have a very dense formula. They are very, VERY packed with sparkles. They really do resemble crushed precious stones. I used Two coats of each color. A light hand is best to ensure an even spread of the glitter all over the nail. 
 Removal of these can, and probably will be a pain. For that reason I wore the OPI peel off base coat underneath. I am glad to say that these pretties wore like IRON for SEVEN days, and I was still able to peel them off when I was ready for a change. 

 These are the sparkliest of all the PixiDusts that have been released, and some of my favorites. I love how chunky they are and how much they sparkle. I also loved the dense formula because I could definitely get away with one coat in days where I might be rushing. 

 These retail for $10.00/ color. Did you pick any of these up? What are your thoughts on these sparklies? 

Happy Wednesday!

Cult Nails Intriguing and Cruisin' Nude V- Gap Nail Art Look

(**press sample**)
Good morning!

 Today I have a simple look for you guys :D. It seems lately my nail art has been going by the motto "less is more". You guys know how much I love crazy nail art looks. I love working on them and I love wearing them. But for some reason, I've really been into simplicity lately. The types of look that don't take much work or time to complete, yet still look effortlessly chic. I seem to go through phases ;).
cn int and cn look photo DSCN7937_zpsd455a4e3.jpg
 This look started with a base of Cult Nails Intriguing of the Casual Elegance collection. To create the V-gaps I used the single- chevron Nail Vinyls and Cult Nails Cruisin' Nude. I really liked the contrast of the Nude tone against the beautiful shade of subtle holo Periwinkle. Intriguing is a bit of a chameleon and can look a bit different depending on skin tone. I love shades that have this quality. I finished my look off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
