Beautifully Disney Pop Of Minnie

That's right, I have more Beautifully Disney swatches to share with you all! Pop Of Minnie came out at the beginning of this year in January and brought some beautiful polish colors with it. With a very bright, mod and pop art style this collection definitely shines!

Dots Or Nothing is a black and white hex glitter top coat. It packs one heck of a punch in one coat! I used Color Club Endless Summer as a base color, which really brings out the contrast of the glitters. I'm extremely impressed with this one coat glitter and its so cute!

Oh Mod Mouse is a vibrant neon yellow with a very faint hint of lime green.  As with most yellow polishes it was a bit streaky, but after four coats it looks smooth. This color is not usually my style, but its just so beautiful and has such a great pop to it!

Orang' You Cute is a nice juicy orange creme. It went on easily in three coats and is a perfect color for a monarch manicure. The formula of this color was really smooth and I had no trouble with streaks.

Poptimistic is a radiant neon bubblegum pink. Easily opaque in three coats and ready to shine! Another amazing collection from Disney and they don't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. One thing I would like to see from them in the future though are more purples and glitters!

Beautifully Disney Fantasy In Flight

I've had these swatches sitting in a folder for awhile now and with all the new Beautifully Disney collections coming out recently, I decided its time to post swatches and catch up! Ever since I heard of Disney launching their own cosmetics line, I was intrigued and planned on owning every polish they put out. Fantasy In Flight came out last year in November with four gorgeous shades.

Spriteful is a stunning nude holographic with hidden iridescent flecks. It took three coats for opacity and the holographic effect didn't get dull with top coat. I have to say this is my favorite color from this collection, its absolutely beautiful.

Something Sassy is a lovely rose gold glitter top coat. One coat over Nicole By OPI How Fairy Nice Of You! is all you need for a glitter packed manicure. I love the color of the glitter, its nice to get a metallic glitter that's not gold or silver.

Wish Come True is a fantastic sky blue holographic with hidden iridescent flecks. This color took three coats for opacity, its formula is nice and smooth. I really hope they release more colors like this and Spriteful because they're amazing and easily my favorite effect.

Star Struck is a ruby red jelly with glittering red hexes. It went opaque in two coats and really surprised me with how pretty it turned out to be. I love how much it sparkles with the top coat and the fact that it doesn't need a base color.

Get ready for more Beautifully Disney swatches coming soon!

Beautifully Disney Haul!

Last Monday I was lucky enough to visit Downtown Disney and have a little shopping spree. I loved being able to feel some of the Disney spirit. We walked around the shops for a bit and ate at my favorite restaurant Naples. After we stopped in at the art gallery, there were so many beautiful art pieces I would love to hang in my home.

I decided to have a little hidden mickey in my manicure for the day. I used China Glaze Escaping Reality as a nice hot pink base. And did my favorite art for Summer, 3D dots! I have little containers of mickey mouse glitters, so I used a black under a white to create the same 3D effect. 

The whole shebang! I'm usually more into polish than eyeshadow, but the art and colors of this palette were calling my name. Its the Curiouser & Curiouser palette from their new Alice In Wonderland line. The four polishes up top are also from that line, from left to right: Tis' Brillig, Non Sensical, Who Are You? and This Way, That Way. The bottom three are from the Minnie Mouse line, from left to right: Poptimistic, Orang' You Cute and Oh Mod Mouse.

Here are the colors inside the Curiouser & Curiouser palette, from top left to bottom right: Hip Cat, Queenie, Twirly, Quiet As A Mouse, Wild Hare and Mushroom. They're highly pigmented, smooth and beautiful. I'll be posting swatches of the polishes later this week, so stay tuned for that!

Quick Post: Revlon Pebbled Textures

Thought you've seen all the textures there are? Think again! Revlon recently released their new Pebbled Texture collection and they're packing a punch of glitter! Not all of the colors were calling me, but I did pick up two out of the collection. 

Caribbean Cove is a full of white, black and shades of gray glitters to create a unique texture. I tried four coats on its own for opacity, but you can see near the tips of my nails there are empty spaces. I did try to layer top coat over it, but this collection is strictly to be textured.

Balinese Bay is a gorgeous mix of fuchsia, purple and black glitters. This color did a little better with four coats by itself. The texture of these aren't super soft, but they're not rough enough to be irritating. The two colors I have I really enjoy and would love to see more color combinations in the future!
