She was VERY generous so I am going to share with you.  First up is two that just SCREAM fun.... and sprinkle cuppycakes.  LOL  Everytime I do this mani I want cuppycakes.  LOL 

I have Oh My Confetti accented with This is How We Do.

Oh My Confetti is seriously a party in a bottle... like the champagne bottles you pull the string from and confetti/streamers explode... YES!!  JUST like THAT!!!  Gorgeous white crelly full of sky blue, gold, dark blue and fuchsia glitters.  No fishing needed, those glitters are just hopping onto your brush!!!  Then This Is How We Do is the PRETTIEST fuchsia holo... what a gorgeous POP with that confetti!!!   GORGEOUS!

She also has THE best cuticle oils that she has packaged in the tubes with the doe foot applicators. I LOVE that, it gets right into my cuticles and just moisturizes from within. Bonus, they smell SO YUMMY!!!

Northern Star Polish Mermaid Dream

* press sample, provided for my honest review *

Hello again dear friends!!!  I know, I know... it HAS been a while. No worries, I'm here now with ANOTHER STUNNER!!!  So all of these new to me brands, I'm just so excited to finally have them and to LOVE THEM!!! 

So first, the brand is Northern Star Polish and the maker is THE SWEETEST, Kristin!!  She is a DOLL and her polish is LOVELY!!  Excellent formula. However, I did get this lovely Vegas CosmoProf exclusive, so you can't get THIS one. BUT since receiving this she has already gotten NEW bottles and gave her logo a lift.  Scandalous, right?!?!

This, friends... is Mermaid Dream. And dreamy, she is!  LOVELY as well.  She's a gorgeous dusty turquoise with super holo and lightly speckled with a superfine microglitter.  The color is so gorgeous and unique to my collection.  Two coats and a top coat and voila!!!  STUNNING!!!

She's just the most beautiful shade and the holo is WOWZA!!  WOOOWZA!!!

I fell in love with Kristin's soul first and THEN her polish.  WINNING!!! 

Isn't it just GORGEOUS?!?!   Perfection.  Smooth, buttery and HOLOY GOODNESS!!!!

Go over to Northern Star Polish's site and look around at her goods, here.  In addition to these buttery beauties and unique gorgeous colors, check out her cuticle oils.  I *might* have a slight obsession with them.  I *might* have them scattered all over the house and on my desk at work.
They smell AMAZEBALLS!!! 

Thanks for hanging out with me and I hope you enjoyed my review as much as I have. 
Have the greatest of days and SMILE, because life is just TOO SHORT!!!

Firecracker Lacquer

* press sample, provided for my honest review *

Friends...  I have a fun brand to share with you and to tell you about one of THE sweetest souls I have EVER MET!!!!  So, the brand is Firecracker Lacquer and the maker is the doll, Kendahl.  I was VERY lucky to meet her at Vegas, at CosmoProf  and I couldn't be happier.  She is sincere, sweet and simply ADORABLE!!!! 

If you haven't  heard of Firecracker Lacquer, let alone tried it... NOW is the opportunity!!!  Let me show you...

First I have to share a super special polish.  This one is not available, sorry friends.  This is a special Vegas CosmoProf Exclusive, named My Heato, Mojito.  LOVE that name!!!  Isn't she just GORGEY!?!?!?  A soft mint green with the most gentlest of green shimmers (that GLOWS) WITH holo AND microfine blue glitters.  Right?!?! Did you catch all that?  Just look...
Firecracker Lacquer My Heato, Mojito
Isn't she super beautiful???  Soft and feminine but FUN and READY TO GET CRAZY!!! Totally an unsuspected Scandalous N' Sassy polish!!!   Lookey.... do you see it all?? The holo is even more spectacular, it was being a little shy for photos.  LOVE THIS!!!!! 
Firecracker Lacquer My Heato, Mojito macro
So if Kendahl isn't a sweetheart enough for allowing me to have this gorgeous exclusive BUT.... wait for it... she gifted me TWO MORE!!!  Now, these two ARE available and you might want to RUSH NOW to get them. 

Girl Fight is the next one I have to share but PLEASE do NOT get into a Girl Fight they are so dramatic and just plain nonsensical.  Instead... share in the gorgeousness of her BEAUTY!!!!!
Seriously, that raspberry jelly jammed full of those iridescent glitters!!!  It dries to a bit of texture but if you like smooth, slap a chubby topcoat on and voila!!!  But personally, I am a purist and I LOVE TEXTURE!!!
Firecracker Lacquer Girl Fight
Ok... ok.... look at that SPARKLY BARKLY GOODNESS!!!!!  GAHHHHH!!!

Ugh, I need a moment to regroup.  *deep breath*  Ok.  The last one, ish... is Frosting.  Now Frosting is a topper so I say "ish" because she can give you a little OOMPH to ANY polish you have.  If you're kinda meh, not really feeling a polish... HELLOOOO Frosting and YIPPPEEEEEEE!!!  She's full of goodness.  There's holo and iridescent glitters and a microfine glitter.... it just screams FUN!!!!

For this next photo I used (from top to bottom) Christian Dior Trench, Fancy Gloss Pitch Black, Kiko #521 and lastly Fancy Gloss Sirena.  DO YOU SEE THOSE SPARKLES!?!?!  YES... it transformed them all into ethereal beauties!!!

Then I took a macro of Frosting over Kiko because that just SCREAMS LOVE ME!!!

I know, I get SO excited but HELLO, you see why!!!

Ok, so Firecracker Lacquer's shop is here.  In addition to hand blended polishes, she also has nail art decorations and holo flasks.  Well hello, girls DO wanna have FUN!!!  Yes we NEED holo flasks!!!

My job here is done friends.  Go peruse and purchase. Procure your own sparkly barkly goodness... and when it arrives eat ALL THE FROOTIES!!!!  You'll understand when your package arrives.

Have the greatest day friends and SMILE!!!! Thanks for hanging out with me!

Emerald & Ash

* press sample, provided for my honest review *
If you have NO idea who the pink fluffy character is that goes by the name of Hufflepuff, you are living under a rock.  Ok, maybe not THAT extreme but she is a My Pretty Pony character and she's just so cute and fluffy and cuddly.  (She happens to be MY FAVORITE) There is an epsiode where Hufflepuff is "dancing on rainbows", and, there is the loveliest of songs that goes along with it.  Simply, Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows.  Oh, I might have forgotten to mention, she's slapped a paper cone on her forehead for this magical moment.

Why did I tell you this, and WHY am I sharing Hufflepuff's picture with you?  Why... why you ask?  This is an INDIE nail polish REVIEW!??!  LOL  Well friends... today's post is from the beautiful brand of Emerald & Ash (the lovely Ashley & hubbs Nate).  And the duo, yes the duo that I present to you is called Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows
Without further ado, yes here is Pink Fluffy Unicorns. So stunning and gorgeous.  A perfect cotton candy pink loaded with TONS of silver shimmer.  I was worried at first, thinking it would emphasize my every imperfection on my nails... but alas, not at ALL!!! 
Ugh... all that SHIMMAH SHIMMAH...  it's simple beauty!! 
Two coats and a top coat and it's just perfect.  Flawless impeccable formula.
So then I had to (of course) top my Pink Fluffy Unicorns with Dancing On Rainbows...
What a GORGEOUS combo!!!  Ash & Nate couldn't have made a BETTER duo for this namesake.
Dancing on Rainbows is a GORGEOUS holo topper just jammed FULL of holy GOODNESS!!
Hufflepuff PLUS HOLO
Then I had to play with Dancing on Rainbows all by herself... I'm a purist that way. Though I do enjoy a good undie, I much rather prefer to go without the undies.
HOLO... strong LIKE... Pink Fluffy Unicorns Dancing on Rainbows?!?! 
Look at that HOLOY GOODNESS...  takes my breath away
And for fun, I amped up the lighting a little similar to sunshine outside and VOILA...
Dancing on Rainbows just GLOWS from within, that gorgeous rainbow spectrum lit on fire.

I knew from the minute I saw this duo at Ash & Nate's that I HAD to have her, and they were SO generous to give them to me at CosmoProf in Vegas over the summer.  SUPER kind and sweet!!!!
* press sample, provided for my honest review *
So Emerald & Ash has been closed for a while, BUT the GREAT news is that TODAY they are going to be re-opening for business!!!  This evening at 7 pm mountain time. 
You CAN procure this duo for your very own!!  (amongst MANY other beauties they have)

Oh and go to youtube, find the video for this song... you too will LOVE it and it will be stuck in your brain on a continuous loop ALL DAY. Which actually unlike most songs, this one is fun.  May even make your day a wee bit brighter.
So no more chatting, do not lollygag GO NOW to the Emerald & Ash shop, here.  They have some GORGEOUS and VERY unique colors... and names.  Also, they have some charity colors and donate a portion of those sales to noted charities.  AND... they offer cuticle oils in 3 sizes that are AMAZING!!!  (PLUS tonite when they reopen there are LOTS of new oil fragrances) Ok, I might have a minor obsession with cuticle oils, but hey there are WORSE things.  LOL
Thank you friends for hanging out with me and remember to SMILE!!!
