Dollish Polish Swatches

Hello lovelies! Today I have swatches of some of my first Dollish Polish polishes. I love uniqueness of Dolly's creations and finally bit the bullet and ordered five from her clearance bin. Not only were these clearance shades, but I ordered them an embarrassingly long time ago and until now, had only shared one of them (here). Read on for my full swatches of the remaining four and more info!

*Press Sample*
Hello lovelies! Today I have some products from SensatioNail to share with you. The gel polish brand have recently released chrome nail powders in six different colours.

Read on for more info and to find out about my first experience with SensatioNail!

Minnie Mouse Triplet Mani (Lexi's 3rd Birthday)

Hello! Today I have a special triplet mani to share with you. Yesterday was Kirsty's (FairyTales Nails) daughter Lexi's 3rd Birthday.

Here are our manis. Read on to see my contribution and for more info!

Hello lovelies! Today I have swatches of more polishes from Chicago Polish Con, this time in the form of a Glisten & Glow Duo.

Danglefoot Nail Polish Tearjerker Cremes Watermarble

 *Contains Press Samples*
Hi lovelies! Today I have a super quick post for you. After swatching the Danglefoot Nail Polish Tearjerks Collection (post here), I couldn't resist testing if the three cremes watermarbled - and they do! After painting a white base, I made rings of all three ('Littlefoot's Mum', 'I Love you Always, Time is Nothing', and 'I'll Never Let Go Jack'), drew a quick pattern, and dipped my nails in. Here's the finished look!

What do you think? Considering this is only my second water marble attempt, I'm very happy with how it turned out! If you weren't convinced on these three cremes, you have no excuse now!

The Danglefoot Nail Polish Tearjerkers Collection is available here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
