Parrot Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have swatches and my review of the two polishes that I got from the indie polish line Parrot Polish. Parrot Polish is family owned and has been operating since 2014. Their polish is 100% cruelty free and 5-Free. Parrot Polish inspiration comes from the many colors of parrots and parakeets. I found out about them while searching for thermal nail polish on Amazon. Thermal nail polish changes colors in response to the heat or cold. What I love most about thermal polish is the constant state of  gradient effect that it gives your nails. Its like buying two polishes for the price of one. It's no secret, I'm obsessed with thermal polish. But it's really hard to find or shall I say, its hard to find ones that actually work. Also, while searching on Amazon, most of the thermal polishes needed a UV light. I own a UV light but I only use it for certain occasions. I was so excited when I finally found a quality brand that needed no UV light to dry. I bought two sha…

Sephora by OPI 5 Peice Nail Polish Collction Set

Today I have my review and swatches for Sephora by OPI Nail Polish Collection Set. I bought these polishes from Amazon for $13.99. I been wanting to try this brand of polish for a while. When I was trying to do some research on this polish I found very little information. That could be due to the fact that this line was discontinued back in 2013. I must admit though, I didn't quite understand why Sephora would need to partnered with OPI. In my opinion, Sephora is such a major beauty brand, why wouldn't they make their own polish line. And that's exactly what they did. However, it seems that some of the nail addicts disapproved of this decision. In 2013 Sephora  launched their own polish line called Formula X. Although, Sephora by OPI has been discontinued you can still find it on different Internet sites and in some stores such as Big Lots. Now for my review, I have to say that I wasn't sure at first of how I felt about these polishes. I thought the nail polish bottle…

My Awesome Nail Haul

Today I'm really excited about doing my first nail haul post. It's been a while since I have visited any of my favorite drug stores to buy nail polish. I mean not because I don't want to. Its just that I feel like I already own everything in the drug stores that's related to nails. For a while now I been doing most of my shopping online. I don't know if its just me but it seems like shopping online is more convenient. Also, you can find more things online and sometimes at a cheaper price. The internet has a lot to offer to us nail addicts. You have your stamping plates, stampers, indie polish, and nail art tools, the possibilities are endless! Oh, the feeling you get when you fill up your shopping cart and click on the check out button. If your anything like me, you constantly look out your window for the mail man to deliver your package. On the day when your nail mail finally arrives you feel nothing but pure joy and happiness. Especially if its one of those days …

To Be or Not to Be? UNT Peel Off Base Coat

Being a nail blogger your constantly painting your nails at least every 1 to 2 days. Oh, and don't forget the nail challenges, collages, and swatches that you have to do throughout the week. Participating in these kinds of things can be fun, but lets be honest it can be a wear and tare on your nails. Although, acetone does a great job removing most polishes, but over usage can harm your nails. Acetone dehydrates your nails, skin, and cuticles when used on a regular basis. In addition, it can also strip the natural oils from your nails which causes them to become brittle.   Therefore, I wanted to find something that would help reduce my usage of acetone. UNT Peel Off Base Coat is considered to be blogger's favorite peel off base. Also, it is specially designed for easy removal of glitter and dark polishes. When I first started my nail journey I was clueless about a lot of things. For instance, I couldn't tell the difference between a crelly or jelly polish. But one thing I…
