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!!

Pretty & Polished Fall 2013 Collection Swatches- Fall in Love with P&P

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!

 Today I have another AMAZING collection from another of my favorite indie brands, Pretty and Polished. This collection is themed around the concept of "Fall-ing in love", in the Fall. Get it, get it? I think it is freaking adorable!! The theme of the collection is very evident in the names of the colors, which are so cute and punny. This is a really fun take on Fall, and I love the variety of colors and textures. Chels did an awesome job on these!!

Muffin Monday!! Pretty & Polished Tomboyish

Oh My!! 

  Yes, you are seeing correct! Muffin is back!! I don't even remember how it has been since I last did a Muffin Monday, even Muffin forgot what it was all about lol. For those of you who may be newer to LTHP Muffin Mondays are a feature that I started back in 2010 and I used to do it EVERY Monday. Basically I would like up random polishes and which ever shade Muffin "picked" I would feature in one way or another.  As I started to get busier and busier it because harder to keep up with the weekly Muffin Mondays. That said, so many of you lovelies reached out to me asking where Muffin was, I had to bring it back!!
  For today's feature miss Muffin picked me one of my new Pretty and Polished acquisitions, and one of the coolest polishes I've played with in a long time! 
 To see Muffin's pick in action just continue reading ♥.

Etsy Mania!! Pretty & Polished Swatches

Hi and freaking Monday.....

   But at least I have some more pretty indies to show you... I am in a particularly shit mood today... I know normally this is a happy place and all that jazz but my "real life" is getting to be quite annoying... I just wanna live in my blog. Is that too much to ask? I just wanna be surrounded by color and great people all day long and talk about art, nails and trends and write and take pictures.. That is all I want out of life... But f*ck*n life has other plans for me it seems.... 


  Enough depressing shit... Onto some AWESOME polishes by one of my favorite Etsy shops: Pretty and Polished. I own SO many of Chels' pretties and I am always excited when I see that she has come up with new colors. 
 Sorry for these crappy collages.... I shall never get over the tragedy that is Picnik's closing... Tried PicMonkey and it's great and all but the whole-  Upload, edit, download, upload, edit, download.... Yeah... Just not working for me.... Too time consuming :( Anywho... Keep on reading to see some pretty swatches.
