Now for the details you’ve all been waiting for! I’ve decided to change up ‘Overall Thoughts’ hoping this will make things easier.

Formula: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 out of 5 of their ideal formula and great consistency. No issues to report.

Application: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 out of 5 because of the great formula(s) on these polishes, the application was super easy to apply and work with. No fishing for add-in i.e glitters, flakies, etc,

Opaqueness: ♥♥♥♥ 4 out of 5 because most polishes opaque in 2-3 coats and some, like Holly Berry Frost could easily be a 1 coater with a generous coat. The glitters, are best applied on a sponge in my personal opinion or might fair better as a topper.

Price: $$

Overall: ♥♥♥♥ this collection is getting a 4 out of 5 from me because I do love how all inclusive this collection is with its various finishes and colors.

The Holiday Collection will be releasing this Saturday, Nov. 12th at 11am central and polishes will range in price from $9-$10.

What do you think of this collection? Will you be naughty or nice to your shopping spree?

Bye for now but I hope you come back and join me on Friday for a Special Edition Interview. Have a great day!

Hey y’all, glad you made it back! Today I have polishes from a brand that is no stranger to the blog. You’ve seen her polishes on here before as she has contributed to multiple polish boxes including the Monthly Awareness Polish Box and the Substance Abuse Box. Yep, you guessed it, Virginia Shaw of Pretty Beautiful is back today with her Holiday Collection. Well…part 1…lol!

I love starting off the week with a good S&R and yes, I am splitting up this S&R into 2 parts as to not overwhelm you with all the gorgeousness because this collection has 14, yes you read that right, 14 polishes. The collection includes shimmers, flakies, holo, crellies and everything in between. So today I’ll be showing you 7 polishes and 7 more on Wednesday. So you have to promise, I mean pinky promise, that you’ll come back. So settle in, we have a lot of goodies to cover.

No seriously, this collection will be releasing on Sat. Nov. 12th @ 11am central.

Tonic Custom Trio: If Candy Were A Polish

Hey y’all, I’m so excited to have you all here today. Why? Well one reason is…IT’S FRRRIIIIDDDAAAYYY! And just incase you need another reason, I have Tonics on my blog today. But not just any Tonics, oh no, 3 amazing customs. As if my might collection of Tonic polishes weren’t enough to keep me happy, Lindsey goes and creates not 1, not 2 but 3 customs. Well actually, she prototyped 3 for me and I couldn’t choose just one so she sent me all 3 #becausesheisamazing!

This trio was named by my hubby and I after my girls, 9 and 4 came up with the polish names. I hereby give you…

If Candy Were A Polish

Sweet Bubblegum Kisses

Sweet Bubblegum Kisses was named by my oldest daughter, Xylana. Immediately after showing her this polish she yells out “Bubblegum”. Because she is so sweet, I stepped the name up a notch. Sweet Bubblegum Kisses is a bright Barbie pink crelly with pink, lavender and silver holo microglitters.

Cotton Candy Hugs

Cotton Candy Hugs was named by my youngest, Xadrian. She loves herself some cotton candy, thus was born Cotton Candy Hugs. Cotton Candy Hugs is a bright  raspberry with pink shimmer packed with silver ultra holo glitters.

Hard Rock Candy

Hard Rock Candy came from my hubby who always helps me when I’m in a pickle. I wanted something along the lines of candy but still wanted to keep it fun. With all the beautiful glitters in this one, Hard Rock Candy only seemed appropriate. Hard Rock Candy is a raspberry jelly base packed with various size pink holo glitters.

The moral of this story is…if you haven’t included Tonic in your collection, I beg of you to stop wasting time, pull the plug and make a purchase. I guarantee you will not regret it. This brand is new just hitting the indie scene back in June but already Lindsey has gained so much well-deserved notoriety.

Tell me in the comments which Tonics you known or what’s on your wish list.

Press Release: Pretty & Polished – November

Greetings to you on this humpday Wednesday! October and all things Halloween are officially over and part of me wants to be sad. I’m big into Halloween like some but I did enjoy seeing all the fun and creative Halloween manis.  I am excited though about all the new and returning polishes from Pretty & Polished (P&P).

Today’s post is slightly different from those I’ve done in the past because it’s not a S&R but instead a Press Release. Just another creative way to bring you information from a favorite here at Queen of Nails 83.

“Throw-Back” Shades

“Throw-Back” Shades include Tart, Mannequin Hands, Valentino, and DayTrippin’. These throw backs are polishes that were available in the beginning of Pretty & Polished. They will be coming in their old bottles with our old labels. The formula has changed and the look of them has been slightly altered, but they stuck with the original design for each polish as much as possible. 

Valentino

DayTrippin’

Tart

Mannequin Hands

All 5 of these polishes are available for pre-order now until the 14th. I Got 5 On It is available for $9 and all 4 Throw Back shades will be available for $6.50 each on pre-order. **The Winter Collection will be available starting 11/14 and I  will have a partial S&R in the upcoming weeks of a few polishes from the Winter Collection, so stay tuned for that!!**
