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?

O.P.I DS Tourmaline & O.P.I DS Titanium for Fall 2014

(**Press Samples**)
 Hello beautiful readers!! Check out these beautiful new additions to the O.P.I DS line of polishes!! Every year O.P.I release Two new shades in this range, usually around time for Fall. While last year was all about textures, this year is all about twinkling sparkle.

O.P.I DS Tourmaline- This beauty is a dense, shimmering and almost metallic vibrant Pink accented by small holographic and opalescent hex glitter.
O.P.I DS Titanium-  This shade is an amazing graphite grey based version of DS Tourmaline. The small hexes really jump out in this shade because of that beautiful darker base color.
Both of these shades have marvelous formulas. They are both very dense and easy to apply. I had great coverage at Two coats. I finished them off with a generous coat of Seche Vite as they have a bit of a texture when they dry.  These shades are available now at O.P.I retailers.

O.P.I Pink of Hearts 2014 Duo

(**Press Samples**)
 In the midst of getting ready for work, I have also decided to get a quick post up for you guys :D. Todays quickie is all about O.P.I's Pink of Hearts release for their breast cancer awareness duo, 2014. Every year O.P.I comes up with beautiful Pink themed shades to support the breast cancer cause. This year was no exception with the introduction of a new crelly glitter shade and the revival of an old favorite. 

O.P.I The Power of Pink- This adorable shade is a creme-jelly based polish. The base is a soft, milky shade of Pink. This beautiful squishy base is accented by matte white and fuchsia glitter. The glitter varies in sizes, there are chunky hexes and small hexes that create an almost floral look. I experienced absolutely NO problems when working with this color. The spread of glitter is great and the base is perfectly smooth and buttery. I used Three thin coats.  

O.P.I Mod About You- Long time O.P.I fans will recognize this name. Mod About You is an O.P.I classic. This shade of soft, white- based Pink has been a favorite of mine for years. The formula is fantastic and does great in Two coats. I did notice that the new version is a slightly different shade than the original shade. I'm not sure if or when O.P.I might have reformulated this color, but my older bottle is definitely a more White based Pink, where the new one is slightly warmer and more vibrant (my camera hates photographing pinks so it muted this one a bit). 

Here is a quick comparison I did on Instagram of the old Mod About You and the new one.
 Along with these two beautiful shades the duo also includes an adorable, small glittery nail file with a BCA ribbon charm. This duo is available now at professional salons including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, Ulta.com and Ulta as well as a lot of other retailers and online. Retails for $16.95.

What do you guys think of this years duo?

O.P.I Nordic Mish Mash Nail Art Look

(**press samples**)
 Hello lovely readers and happy Monday! Today I want to share this mish mash fall look I did using some of the shades from the beautiful O.P.I Nordic collection for Fall 2014. I will be very honest and say that I was not expecting much from this collection judging by the original promo shots. Once I got to see them in person it was a whole different story. I actually really love all the shades in this release and have been really enjoying bringing them together in funky nail art looks. 

This look features the following shades: 
O.P.I Do you Have This Color in Stock-Holm-  This shade is a vibrant shade of true Violet creme. I can't really say that it leans Blue, or Red. To me this shade is a perfectly balanced, rich and vibrant, shade of Purple. 
O.P.I My Voice is a Little Norse- This pretty is an amazing blend of small holographic, super sparkly, glitter suspended in a lightly smoked out base. This baby is fairly densely packed, but it does best layered. I'm not sure this glitterbomb could achieve opacity on its own. For this look I decided to use a cosmetic wedge sponge to apply the glitter in a gradient over Do You Have this Color in Stock-Holm. 
O.P.I Suzi has a Swede Tooth- This shade is your classic Pink creme. It is a really balanced and flattering shade of Pink creme that will appeal to many different tastes. In this look I decided to add it as little pops of vibrant dots. 
O.P.I Ice-Bergers and Fries- This shade is a rich camel- toned brown, leans a tad red. I was not expecting to love this shade as hard as I do. It reminds me of lush leather handbags and matching knee- high boots. Wearing this shade as my base on my Pinkie and Index fingers brought this mani up to "Fall Speed". 

I finished this look off with two generous coats of Seche Vite. 

 I absolutely adore how these colors play together. I also adore the formulas for all of these colors. They all went on buttery smooth and gave me no issues. Even the colors I used as accents were a joy to work with. Also.. the names :D, the names are great! This collection is available now at most (if not all) O.P.I retailers. Have you picked any of these babies up?

Zoya Summer 2014 Magical Pixies

(**Press Samples**)
 The sparkles! OMG The sparkles! Ok, I will just come right out and say that when I first saw the Summer Magical Pixies from Zoya for 2014 I was a bit underwhelmed. I can't tell you exactly what was putting me off from wearing them. Maybe I thought the shades were a bit boring? And, in the bottle they were not doing much for me.... But then, this past weekend I was feeling sorta lazy and I wanted to wear something "easy" and that would wear for a good while. If anything, I at least knew that these would wear fantastically and they would sparkle. So, I "bit the bullet" and thought to myself.... "what the hell, I'll give these a shot.". 

Oh my GLOB! What a beautiful surprise these turned out to be on my nails. Looking back, I'm not sure at all why I thought I would not enjoy these. I will admit though, they are a million times more spectacular on the nail (and fully dry) than in the bottle.  

Zoya Arlo- On myself, Arlo wears like a beautiful shade of raspberry. Of course as we have come to expect with the Magical Pixies, this beauty is packed to the brim with chunky holo hex glitter in varying sizes.
Zoya Bar- On myself, Bar wears like a warm, sandy gold. I really was not sure what to expect with Bar, because golden tones can be hard for me to wear. I was happy to see that she is a bit of a shape shifter thanks to the jelly-like base.
Zoya Ginni- On myself, Ginni wears like a soft coral toned pink. She was a bit more sheer than her two companions, beautiful non the less.
 The reason why I kept mentioning how these wore on me specifically is because I've noticed that these can look a bit different from person to person. They seem to adjust to anyone's skin tone. I think that is because the "base color" for these is not as densely pigmented or packed with micro sparkle as the Spring Magical Pixies. They are sort of "jelly" like in application so the fully dry effect is almost like a matte jelly sammich.

 I used Three coats of each color and dry time was decent. I'd say within a good 30 they were dry enough to carry on with my day. My final thoughts on these is that they are beautiful, effortless and I regret not wearing them sooner. Never again will I underestimate a Magical Pixie, lesson learned.

Did you try out any of these Three Summer beauties? What are your thoughts on them?

Zoya Tickled DIY Marbled Decal Nail Art

**Press Samples**
 OMG much changes!! Such update :D. I hope you guys are enjoying the new look of Let them have Polish!

 Not even going to lie... I've been completely obsessed with making my own decals lately. I desperately wanted to try this technique with creme polishes, so I did :D. I had this Zoya Tickled trio set aside for a water marble, but decided to try the color drops method instead. I am so loving the effect this technique created with these three creamy shades. How can I not love sweet cotton candy swirls?!
 I painted my nails with Zoya Kitridge. This shade is an amazing, vibrant bubblegum pink creme. I am smitten with this flattering color, and its amazing formula. The formula is very self- leveling and perfectly pigmented.  I only needed Two coats of Kitridge.
 To create my decals I used the method shown in my color drops tutorial. For these decals I did space my drops out a bit more. Spacing out the drops created that petal- like effect. For my swirls I used Zoya Ling, and Zoya Rooney. Ling is a beautiful shade of true cerulean blue creme. She is a very balanced shade of blue. Rooney is a vibrant magenta pink creme. She is a classic that will look great on every skin tone. I just love the amazing pops of blue thanks to unique Ling. She adds such a great contrasting touch. 
 I finished my nails off with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked fast. Of course I added my "traditional" coat of INM Northern Lights because sparkles make everything better. I really enjoy using the color drop method to create marbled nails because it allows me to get more swirls on my nails than a watermarble normally would. I LOOOOVE watermarbles, but I feel like they look so much more kick ass on gals with longer nails. I feel like with the color drops method girls with shorter nails can also enjoy intricate swirl designs on their nails.  

 I am just LOVING the Zoya Tickled collection shades. The collection feels very cohesive, the colors really do flatter each other. I also love that all six shades look like they could work with all skin tones.. These creamy beauties look great on everyone! 

Thanks for coming by today loves!!

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!

Cult Nails It's a New Day Collection Look

(**Press Sample**)
Happy Thursday!! 

 It is a new day indeed. A very rainy new day :D... but I love in South Florida... I think I'd be worried if it WASN'T raining. The look I am sharing today is the opposite of what the weather feels like, I need that haha. For this look I went with ALLL the Cult Nails. Maria and Marta (of Chit Chat Nails) did such a wonderful job on this collection. The It's a New Day collection is definitely one of my all time favorite releases that Cult Nails has ever done. 
 On my ring and thumbnails I used Cult Nails Evolution. This shade is a light, peachy, crelly. I absolutely adore the squishiness of this color. I mean I just LOVE the color, period. Light peachy shades are my go-to, safe place, nail color. I wanted to have a sparkly accent so I topped off my peachy nails with some Cult Nails Walk of Shame.
 For the gradient nails I started with a base of Cult Nails It's a New Day. This shade is the most perfect pastel, baby chick, yellow creme. The formula is squishy perfection. To create the gradients I used Cult Nails Falling Hard and It's a New Day. Falling Hard is a soft Barbie pink crelly with a great formula.
 Since I have not stamped in ages... I decided to bust out some stamping gear... I used Bundle Monster plate BM- H09 and Cult Nails Radiance for the stamped details. I finished my nails off with a coat of Seche Vite.

 I really love how these colors play together. They are a perfect complimentary trio and I can't imagine one without the others. Again I say, Maria and Marta did a wonderful job with this collaboration. These shades are still available from the Cult Nails website and retail for $12.00.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

LTHP Quickies! Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Glosses

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!! 

  So, I was going through my draft folder and found this little hidden gem. Back at the beginning of the year Milani did a HUUUUGE release of new lip products. Among those products release was a brand new line of beautiful glosses. This range is made up 14, yes 14, new gloss shades. 
 photo Desktop13_zpsc77d8eb7.jpg
 The range of shades they released is just amazing, beautiful and perfect. There are shades for everyone here. The glosses range from nudes, to shimmery, to bright pinks, classic reds and trendy berries. These glosses feature a slightly sticky and thick, yet smooth and pigmented formula. If you are not a fan of sticky glosses, these might not be for you. That said, I found that them being slightly sticky might have made them wear incredibly well. One of the reasons I'm not a huge fan of glosses is because of how often I have to re-apply them. While I had to re-apply these, it was not so often that I was getting annoyed at it. They also feel very moisturizing on the lips, which I really like. Overall, I actually like the thicker texture of these glosses. 
 The packaging is really nice. I love how sturdy and high end they feel. These feature a long wand doe foot applicator. 
brilliant gloss swatches photo DSCN5961_zpsa07632bf.jpg
Ravish Raspberry: A beautiful shade of vivid magenta pink gloss. 
Pink Lady: A classic shade of blue-toned bubble gum pink gloss. 
Berry Tempting: Right on trend with the pantone shade of the year, this shade is a gagagorg shade of radiant orchid gloss. 
Mauve Fetish: This shade is a classic shade of beautiful mauve with delicate golden shimmer.
Luminous: This beauty is a sheer, shimmering gloss packed full of delicate golden and pink shimmer.
Mai Tai: This pretty is a magical shade of vivid coral with golden shimmer.
Bare Secret: A classic shade of soft neutral nude gloss. 

brilliant gloss swatches photo DSCN6007_zps942d591a.jpg
Black Cherry: A classic shade of deep Burgundy gloss. 
Brown Berry: A rich shade of maroon gloss with soft golden shimmer.
Red my Lips: A retro shade of true Red gloss. 
Nude Touch: A sheer champagne toned gloss with iridescent shimmer.
Coral Crush: A sweet shade of muted  orange leaning coral gloss.
Sweet Grapefruit: A beautiful shade of muted pink toned coral gloss.
Rose Blush: A perfect shade of rosey gloss accented by pink and golden shimmer.

 I really love this range of colors. Milani did a shade for every taste with this release. Of course I am LOOOVING the pinks and those sheer shimmery shades. I'm curious to see some of the more sheer shimmering shades layered over different lipstick shades. 

Below are some quick lippy swatches of the shades Ive gotten around to wearing. Currently I am definitely obsessing with Rose Blush. 

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Rose Blush

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Sweet Grapefruit

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Ravish Raspberry

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Red my Lips

Milani Brilliant Shine Gloss in Coral Crush

 The Brilliant Shine gloss line by Milani is being sold wherever Milani is sold, as well as online. The puppies retail for $5.49 each, but feel like they should be WAAAY more expensive. I love Milani's ability to release an amazing product at reasonable price points. 

Which are your faves? I'm leaning toward Rose Blush, Sweet Grapefruit, Pink Lady and Mai Tai.

Zoya Awaken and Monet Swatches

(**Press Sample**)
Hey guys! 

 So, I figured... since I have the Zoya Tickled and Bubbly Summer collections in hand.... that maybe, just maybe... Now is a good time to post my Awaken & Monet Spring collection swatches. Can you say "slacker"? 

 photo 20140429-192244_zps7d2021e1.jpg

Zoya Dot- Dot is a classic ballerina pink creme-jelly. Even though it is really sqishy in finish, the formula was fairly opaque and easy to work with. I used Three thin coats for my swatch. 
 photo DSCN9309_zps9e82f749.jpg

Zoya Cole- Cole is my favorite shade in this entire collection. She is a beautiful shade of perfect peachy creme-jelly. The formula on this color is amazing as well. I used Two thin and easy coats to for my swatch. Shades like this can be so universally flattering. I love how tan they make me look. 
 photo DSCN9376_zps4d676644.jpg

Zoya Rebel- Rebel is a soft sky blue with a subtle micro shimmer running through it. The shimmer gives a really pretty silvery/ golden, almost duochrome, effect. The formula on this color seems a bit sheer at first but is perfect in Two coats. 
 photo DSCN9471_zps2d755da5.jpg

Zoya Dillon- Dillon is the seafoam sister of Rebel. The shimmer in Dillon appears more Silvery than Golden. I used Two thin coats. 
 photo DSCN9502_zpsc61ed4c5.jpg

Zoya Hudson- Husdon is the Orchid sister to Rebel and Dillon. The shimmer in this pretty appears more Golden. I used Two thin coats. 
 photo DSCN9557_zpscaec0af9.jpg

Zoya Brooklyn- Brooklyn is a frosty "White Gold" shade. Brooklyn is a little brush strokey. I used Two coats for my swatch. 
 photo DSCN9610_zpsab2cfdfb.jpg

Zoya Monet over Dot- Monet is a glitter topper. This polish is made up of iridescent hex glitters suspended in a, barely-there, pink jelly base. I had to add a boisterous amount of thinner to get this polish to work. As I received it, it was unusable. The formula was insanely thick and the glitter spread non existent. Once I added the thinner I was able to work with it, but it still gave me some troubles. IDK, I want to love it. t is really ethereal and looks so pretty in the bottle.... the formula leaves much to be desired. 
 photo DSCN9365_zpsec2a7325.jpg

 Overall, I am a bit disappointed in this collection. I'm not sure what, but something is missing for me. While the colors are really pretty, they don't feel special to me. I am SUPER disappointed in Brooklyn. A golden frost? Really?... And while I appreciate Zoya's effort with Monet, the execution of the topper fell flat for me. That formula is like glitter glue. 
 Strangely enough the shades I like best are the Two cremes, Dot and Cole.  Especially Cole... They are effortless and flattering. I almost wish they had released all the other shades as creme-jellies a'la Cole and Dot, I think that would have been a more interesting collection.

 Thankfully, I am stoked on the new Summer shades. I really think they redeemed themselves with the Summer colors. I hope I love them on the nail as much as I do in the bottles. How did you guys like the Awaken collection? Any faves here?

Pink Wednesday! Happy 10th Mean Girls!!!!

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Pink Humpday!! 

  Seriously though.. where did 10 years go? I highly dislike reminders of how fast time is flying by haha. It certainly does not feel like 10 years since I first saw "Mean Girls" in theaters with my mom. I remember, we had made a mom-daughter date out of it. We left the theater with sore sides from laughing so much. Today I am celebrating 10 years of "Mean Girls" by rocking some cute pink nails, pink clothes... you get the picture ;D.... You better be wearing some Pink too.. or you can't sit with us.  

nopi look photo DSCN7392_zps56846f1e.jpg
 For this look I used shades from the Nicole by O.P.I 2014 core expansion. I started with a base of NOPI I'll have the Salmon. I waited for my base to dry off and the applied striping tape in a random fashion to create fat and thin stripes. The hot magenta shimmering shade is NOPI Always a Flirt
 I accented my pink nails with some tiny gold beads. I topped these off with a coat of Seche Vite. Of the three "mean girls", I can picture Gretchen wearing nails like these :D.

Hilarious timing note: I was watching Mean Girls while working on this post. It is ending as I am typing this very last sentence ;). Happy pink humpday beauties!!

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!

Fit for a Sea Goddess

(**Press Samples**)
Good morning and happy Tuesday! 

 Today I want to share some cute pairings I wore over the past few weekends. All of these beautiful shades come from the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection. The Sea Goddess collection is made up of Six new textured polishes ranging from super sparkly, to subtle and adorable. I really loved these shades and I loved wearing them. 
 Ever since the O.P.I peel-off base coat came out I have been on a textured polish kick. I love that when I am done or ready for a change I can just peel my textures off and not worry about removal at all. 


China Glaze Tail me Something- A stunning shade of micro- glitter, light Purple. This pretty is sooo sparkly it is almost blinding. The formula seems to be made up of nothing but micro glitter and small hexagonal glitters in a beautiful shade of Purple. I used Two easy coats of this color. I paired this sparkler with China Glaze Sand Dollar Make you Holla which is a creamy White textured base base accented with small glitters in a rainbow of colors. This is definitely the ultimate "cake batter" nail polish with that awesome texture. I used Three coats of this shade. 
 photo DSCN8242_zps5fdc6773.jpg


 My next pairing was all about Pink. I went with China Glaze Shell we Dance which is a beautiful shade of light Raspberry texture shimmery goodness. This pretty has a " shimmery base" accented with small raspberry toned glitter. I used Two coats of this pretty. The light pink shade is China Glaze Wish on a Starfish. I LOOOOOVE this soft shade of pink which is accented by an amazing flash of golden duochrome. Very "seashell pink" feeling. I used Three thin coats of this beauty. 
 photo DSCN8308_zps29969489.jpg


And last but not least is this pairing of mermaid-y proportions. China Glaze Seahorsin' Around is the answer to anyone who was praying for a textured version of Zoya Charla (O.P.I Catch me in your Net and all is dupes). This baby is a Teal foil with a slight Golden duochrome. The finish is very intense, sparkly and just beautiful. The only downside to this shade is that it can stain your nails. I used Three thin coats. For a soft contrast I used China Glaze Teal the Tide Turns. This pretty is a creamy "seafoam-teal" creamy texture base accented by small mossy green glitters. I used Three thin coats of this shade as well. 
 photo DSCN8148_zps907bfb77.jpg

 I really adore the mix of extremely sparkly, and creamy textures in this collection. I also love the theme behind it. I definitely get an oceanic feel from them, very "treasure chest". I love that all of these are unique in my collection. In a sea of textured polishes, these still manage to stand out for me. These have been out for some time now and should be available where ever China Glaze is sold. 

I loved wearing these as pairs. Do you have any faves from this collection?
