NeoCell Biotin Bursts

Last September I wrote a rave review for the Beauty Burst chews from NeoCell, well now they have a new product, Biotin Bursts chews
Biotin is great for hair, skin and nails, I already take Biotin daily, so if I can get my Biotin by way of a delicious chew, um... yes please! 


These taste so yummy, I have to remind myself they are not dessert and to only eat one a day.

Sally Hansen Foil Collection

The Sally Hansen Foil Collection is a ten shade collection, but don't let the name fool you, these don't have a foil finish, they actually dry to a chrome, mirror like finish, but nonetheless, this is a gorgeous collection. A bonus, these are all one coaters! and dry super fast.
If you are wondering if these will be good for stamping, the answer is YES! I have included stamping swatches for you as well, the image I used is from plate Mash 43. Check out my Facebook page for a quick demo video of the stamping.

Sterling Silver is just as the name states, silver.


There are two gold shades in this collection, this is Yellow Gold, which has a slight green tone to it compared to the next one named Liquid Gold.


Liquid Gold is more of a true gold.


Rose Copper, is a rose gold.


Titanium Flush is a hot pink.


Pink Platinum is silver toned pink.


Purple Alloy is my favorite, I just love purple.



Leaden Lilac, I would say this leans more blue than lilac, but beautiful just the same.


Cobalt Chrome is a teal.


Minted Metal is a silver toned mint green.


These are set to release in June 2014, but have already been spotted in many stores, so if you are interested, keep an eye out, they should arrive soon if not already, set to sell for $7.99 each.

Sensationail White Lily and Silver Glitter

Sensationail White Lily is a bright white cream. 



Here it is topped with 2 coats of Silver glitter.

I love how a simple white manicure can be so satisfying, it gives such a fresh and clean look. After a few days I decided to "dress it up" and added silver glitter, you can check out a quick video clip on my instagram by clicking, here to see it sparkle in the sun.

FingerPaints swatches

FingerPaints has recently changed their formula, brushes and logo design on their bottles, their new formula is meant to be full opaque color in one coat. 
 All the of the shades I have shown in this post are very opaque, one coat would have been sufficient but since I take close up photos of my nails, I wanted to be sure everything was evened out and I applied another coat, but for normal everyday wear, one coat will be all you need.

Plum Perspective is a raspberry creme.

Framed In Red is a metallic red.

Picturesque Purple is an eggplant purple creme

Berry Good Bid is a such a unique color to me, it is a deep plum with blue shimmer shifts that show up at certain angles in direct sunlight.

another photo to show off these gorgeous blue shimmers.

FingerPaints can be found at Sally Beauty Supply stores.

FingerPaints Pop Movement Collection

The Pop Movement Collection is a six shade collection, which consist of three cremes and three matte glitter toppers. With all the glitters, I used one coat, but because I'm a bit of a perfectionist, I went back and dabbed some glitters on in the areas that seemed more bare. 
Paper Mache is a white creme, 2 coats used.

Kitchy Tangerine is a bright, almost neon orange. 2 coats used.
