Paint All the Nails Presents Marble

*Nothing to Disclose*

Hi everyone! Today the ladies of Paint All the Nails have a wonderful theme to work with: Marble! This theme is actually really diverse and can encompass many techniques and ideas to produce a marbled or marble-like look on the nails (we made sure to let everyone interpret the theme loosely, so we will likely see a variety of looks!). For my look today, however, I decided to use what has become the traditional marbling technique and often one of the most dreaded techniques in the nail world: the water marble.

Scofflaw Nina Sings the Blues

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! Today I have a gorgeous limited edition from Scofflaw to share with you! This beautiful LE called Nina Sings the Blues will release on February 26th at 8 PM CST for a one-time 24 hour pre-order.

Nina Sings the Blues is a blue jelly filled with bright blue shimmer and blue, grey, and pale orange glitters in various sizes. Formula had a good glitter density and built up nicely to opacity in 2 coats (and I used 2 coats of topcoat to get a glassy smooth finish). I absolutely adore this polish and I really think it might be my favorite Scofflaw LE yet! Per usual, the shimmer just puts this polish over the top and I was already sold when I heard the color combo (orange and blue is always a winner). Also, per usual, the colors weren't quite what I was expecting when I heard "orange and blue" but were instead a much more unique combo with the pastel orange and blues and they work so wonderfully with the darker blue base shade.

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have new to me indie brand to share with you, Glitter Daze!

All of these multichrome flakie toppers come in both regular and holo versions, which have a unique blend of holo glitters added to make them even more sparkly. I really enjoy wearing cremes, but I always seems to have to layer something on top of them and I had SO MUCH FUN layering with this collection! These are all perfect for jazzing up an otherwise plain mani. I have a selection of 6 polishes from the 16-piece Flora Noxia Collection and they are all available now in the Glitter Daze shop.

Darling Diva Polish Lost in Love Collection

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Tonight I have the Darling Diva Polish Lost in Love Collection to share with you! This is a collection of 5 sparkling dusty pastel holos and one sparkling holo topper. These polishes all have holo microglitter added to them which make them catch the light when you move your fingers around. When these arrived, I immediately thought of one of my favorite collections ever, the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. They were all dusty cremes that had the slightest touch of grey to them that made them extra special. I feel like this collection has that same feel, but in sparkly holo form. These launched yesterday in the Darling Diva Polish shop, so go grab them while you can!
