Lac Attack Dreamer Spring 2014 Collection

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Tuesday my beauties! 

 Today I want to share my swatches of the Lac Attack "The Dreamer" collection. This cute set was released by Anastasia for Spring 2014. This is a really playful collection. There are four glitter toppers and a white crelly in this fun little group. 

Lac Attack Dream- Dream is a cute "peach fuzz" topper. This pretty is made up of micro bars in yellow, peach, orange and white suspended in a clear base. The spread of the bars is great, I ran into no issues with application. I used Two coats of Dream over Cult Nails Nevermore

Lac Attack Believe- Believe is a white-based crelly accented by hexagonal glitters in Red and burgundy. It looks like little rose petals floating on my nails. The formula on this pretty is super easy to work with and does well in Two coats.

Lac Attack Hope- Hope is a magnificent blend of micro purple glitter and small golden hexes suspended in a clear base. This is a fantastic topper and creates amazing dimension when layered. I think this baby can also be worn by itself. I layered two coats of Hope over Zoya Hudson.

Lac Attack Celebrate- Celebrate is a playful blend of square shaped glitters suspended in a clear base. There are black, pink, blue, green and lavender satin squares. I adore the confetti quality of this polish. It looks I went to a party and left with it on my nails :D. I used two easy coats of Celebrate over Zoya Dillon

Lac Attack Imagine- Imagine is a gorgeous blend of circle shaped glitter (dots) in aqua, white and peachy pink suspended in a clear base. This is probably my favorite in the entire collection. I LOOOVE how the dots look like playful little bubbles. I used Two coats of Imagine over Zoya Cole.

Lac Attack Fierce Spring 2014 Collection

(**Press Samples**)
Happy day of hump, 

 Today I want to share my swatches of an upcoming collection from the, always awesome, Lac Attack. This collection is made up of Six new amazing layering top coats. If you are a fan of shifting polishes, this collection is definitely for you. Each of these pretties create a completely unique look depending on what base color they are layered over. I am a huge fan of polishes like these because they allow me to create endless new colors out of my existing stash. 
 There are Four shifting glassflecks and Two glitter/shard toppers. I chose to layer all of my glassflecks over a basic Black creme base to get as much of the shifting effect to come out as possible. That said, the shifters (Unique, Sassy, Fierce, Fearless) look amazing over lighter shades and contrasting shades as well. The possibilities are endless. 

Lac Attack Unique- This beauty is a micro yellow-golden shimmer  suspended in a, barely- there, yellow base. The shimmer is very densely packed and creates a beautiful "blackened gold" look when layered over Black. There was a slight shift to Orange at extreme angles. I used Two coats of Unique over my Black base.

Lac Attack Fearless- The particles in fearless are a bit more "chunky" that those in Unique. Fearless is made up of gorgeous micro royal Blue glassflecks suspended in a, barely-there, blue jelly base. Over Black I was getting slight hints of a shift to Teal at extreme angles. I also love the space-y look it gives my Black base. I used Two coats of Fearless.

Lac Atttack Sassy- Sassy is the brilliant gilded Emerald sister to Fearless. This beauty is a beautiful light green glassfleck blend suspended in a , barely-there, green jelly base. Out of the Four shifters, this one had the most visible duochrome on the nail. I was getting hints of golden, yellow and dark green when I moved my hands around. I used Two coats of Sassy over my Black base.

Lac Attack Fierce- Fierce is the hot Magenta sister of Unique. This beauty is a micro shimmering blend of magenta particles suspended in a, barely-there, pink jelly base. I love how it turned into a beautiful Blackened violet when layered over a Black base. I used Two coats of Fierce over my base color.

Lac Attack Daring- Daring is made up of small Silver shards suspended in a clear base. I love that she used "plain" Silver shards rather than prismatic. I love the look of "broken glass" it creates. I layered Daring over Zoya Rebel for a cool look.

Lac Attack Quirky- Quirky is a blend of satin white micro shards suspended in a clear base. I layered Quirky over LVX Monaco. This layering pretty creates the effect of "faux snow" and I love it. I used Two coats of Quirky over my base color.

Monday Mani Spam

(**Press Samples**)
Good evening my darlings!! 

  Today I have some random mani-spam for you guys. I also have a teeny bit of "news" today. If you follow LTHP on Facebook, you may have already seen this update, but I wanted to post it on the blog too. 
 Muffin's passing was a very hard, sad and almost traumatic experience for me, she was such a big part of our home, and this blog. I was heartbroken to have to bring "Muffin Mondays" to a close in such a sad manner. But that said, I knew that I had to keep the tradition of polish-picking kitties going on the blog. SO, starting tomorrow a new weekly feature will begin with Truffle picking up where Miss Muffin left off. Every week, on Tuesdays, Little Truffle will be picking me a polish to work with. Truffle Tuesdays are a-comin'! After all... my blog tag line does promise Nails, makeup and CATS!!!

Indie Spammy- Spam!!

(**Press Sample**)
Good afternoon my darlings! 

  Look at me getting a post up!!! I hope you guys have missed me as I have missed you. A few days ago I asked you guys on Facebook if you were interested in seeing some indie spam and the answer was a big 'ol Yes. SO spam you I shall.

Lac Attack Hogwarts over OCC Power Plant 
  Hogwarts is an awesome mix of small Blue, Silver, Orange and Green glitters suspended in a clear base. I love the unique blend of colors and the pretty, sparkling effect it creates when layered.

Colores de Carol Hero in Disguise 
 Hero in Disguise is a muted Grey jelly with very subtle Blue-Violet shimmer accented by Marigold and Coral hex particles as well as Black stars. This is a really cute polish, and I loved wearing it, But it was not the easiest to work with, and I had to do quite a lot of fishing to get the glitter pieces on the nail. I used Three coats for my mani.  

R. Hobby Cosmetics Holo Berry over SindiePOP White Gold 
  Holo-Berry is a blend of small Raspberry and Black glitter suspended in a clear base.

Twee & Honey Glittertits over Picture Polish Kryptonite
  Glittertits (LOLOLOLOL) is a mix of chunky Silver holo hexes and smaller Silver holo particles suspended in a clear base. This is a fantastic topper for just about any shade.

KBShimmer Where my Peeps At?
 Where my Peeps At? is an adorable, soft Yellow jelly with small Pink, yellow and green glitter accented by Circle glitters in Gold, Green, red and Pink. This polish is just TOO CUTE!!! I am really liking the Circle glitters, they add something new and unexpected.

  I am still working on getting better on my end. I have not been extremely well, but I am staying as positive as possible. I have many beauties to play with and I am really wanting to feel better so I can dive back into my stash. Truth is I can no longer downplay how unwell I've been feeling. I had been working really hard at "mind over matter" but lately my body is winning. On a positive note, I am keeping track of my ideas in a notebook and when I feel well again there will be SO much awesome happening!!!

 Do you adore any of these?

Updated OCC Power Plant Mani- Matte Angled French Tips

(**Some of the products featured in this post were provided for  review consideration**)
Good Morning!!

  This will be a quickie post. I feel like all I do these days is bitch about not feeling well, and I am really sorry about that. I have this "thing" where I feel like my body cannot keep up with my brain. There is SO much I want to/need to get done. I have so many ideas floating around in my brain, but I rarely have the energy to get up and DO IT. I hate it :(. I really try so hard not to dwell on my illness, but it has been wearing me down lately. I've never had these many bad weeks in a row. I know this is not permanent and I hope to be well someday soon. I will be heading to the Mayo Clinic in May so, Fingers crossed I'll come out with some more definite answers.  
 So this cool and simple look started with a base of OCC Power Plant. After a day of wearing Power Plant by itself I decided to layer Lac Attack's Hogwarts over it for some bling. I wore that for another day or so and I had some minimal tip wear going on, but was not ready to part with my mani yet... SO, I taped off some angled french tips and painted the exposed parts with Cult Nails Nevermore. To finalize my whole look and give it some edge, I added a coat of Twee & Honey This is mateness- matte top coat. 

 I'm hoping to be a little on track this week. I do have quite a lot of pictures ready to go, they are mainly makeup though. I know many of you are here for le nails, but LTHP LOOOOVES makeup too ♥. So, there might be a lot of makeup posts coming your way these coming days. Mainly because I don't have much "nail" material ready to go :(. But as I said above, I have SO many ideas, so many new things I want to try and tutorials I want to film. I just need my body to get with the program and stop rebelling against me.

XO

Lac Attack Magical Musings Collection: Part One

Good Morning! 

  Today I have some swatches of some of the shades Lac Attack and Glitta Gloves teamed up to create. These are shades from the Magical Musings Collection by Lac Attack. This collection was released during the Holidays but the colors are amazing and definitely magical! 
 If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my ultra nub post. My nails are now shorter than they were in the Floam post from a few days ago :(. I don't mind nubs but they are WAY too short to photograph and need a few days so in the mean time I will share swatches I've stashed away.

Etsy Mania!! Lac Attack Jewel of the Nile

Good afternoon and happy hump day!

  Today I have another of my Etsy buys. The shop being featured today is Lac Attack. When I saw this awesome polish I just knew I had to have it. This pretty also killed my lemming for I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous Pinkerbell. I don't know how close they really are but looking at swatches, they are pretty similar. I so cannot get over these matte glitter blends. I just love how they look!
 No, this is not a dupe or even close to Floam. Now that- that is out of the way :D... Jewel of the Nile is a lovely mix of Blue and Green matte glitters with larger "see through" Pink bits thrown in for contrast. How adorable is this polish?! For this manicure I layered Two coats of JOTN over a franken that was sent to me by the lovely Nicole from Polish for Thought. She sent me Four of her creations and left the task of naming them up to me. I named this pretty pink Princess Bubblegum (Any Adventure Time Fans in the house?) I will be featuring her pretties soon! So I seriously love this combo and I even made a ring out of it :D!
 I seriously love the little Pink bits in this. They look like they are floating on my nails. Here is a pretty macro :D!
The cuteness... I haz it! Thanks for stopping by loves!
