JLB Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have my swatches and review of the 4 piece nail lacquer collection set by JLB Cosmetics. I haven't heard of or tried this brand before. While doing research on this company, I found very little information on them. Therefore, I will just get on with the review. I got this polish set from Ross for $5.99. I normally stay away from buying nail polish sets like these because I'm always skeptical of the quality. When I saw how cute these little polish bottles were I thought I would give them a try. I must admit I've never seen nail polish bottles like these before, they remind me of perfume bottles. Although, they are pleasing to the eye the brushes were a little uncomfortable to use. The brush was short and the top of it felt like a door knob. As a result, it was kind of hard to get a good grip on it. But, I've had more difficult times while painting my nails. In addition, these polishes had a slightly strong smell, but after a while it went away. However, there's no denying that these shades are gorgeous. I realize I have to be realistic with this review. Four polishes for $5.99 is a great bargain. When you pay a price like that you can't expect the quality to be like China Glaze or OPI. Overall, I enjoyed playing with these polishes and look forward to trying more in the future.

Hot Crush

Hot Crush is a bright candy apple red polish with a jelly like consistency. While applying the first coat I noticed the polish was a little on the thin side. So I applied 2 more thick coats. No top coat applied.

Glamour Metal

Glamour Metal is a micro-shimmer nail polish. This shade was opaque in two coats. Also, it was very shiny, especially when it hits the light. However, it took a little time to get all the little sliver glitters off my skin after removal. No top coat applied.


Grace is a sheer fuchsia polish. It was opaque in two coats, no top coat applied. This shade is just simply gorgeous, it has such a distinct mature look about it. I love a classic pink shade!


Pixie is a gold glitter polish. This polish was very thick and only needed one coat. No top coat applied. Pixie is my favorite out of all four. It's so lovely especially in the light.

EA Polish Swacthes & Review

Hello everyone! For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my swatches and review of indie polish brand EA Polish. I've been following EA Polish on Instagram for quite some time. Therefore, when CEO/Founder Ellyse contacted me to do a review for the company, I was very excited! What intrigued me the most about EA Polish is how it came about. After becoming a mother, Ellyse's friends and family started inquiring about her formally fabulous nails. Not only did Ellyse decided to do something about it, she started her own nail polish company. If anyone knows anything about the joys and sometimes woes of motherhood, is me. I'm pretty sure some of you guys can relate. Being a mom can be challenging at times, we have a 1,000 things to do and so little time to get them done. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being a wife and a mother. However, it can become overwhelming to the point where you began to neglect the simple things in life. For example, getting your hair d…

Nail Therapy? Let's get Personal!

Hey guys! welcome to my blog. I started this blog a year ago along with when I first started Instagram(IG). I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the blog and my IG page, so I decided to just focus on having fun with IG. Its been almost a year later and let me tell you, its been one heck of a ride. I have had so much fun meeting nice people, participating in nail art challenges, and experimenting with new nail art techniques. I never knew there were so many other people out there like me who loves nail polish. Some people may wonder why would any one love nail polish so much. Well, I love nail polish because there's not a size on the bottle, I don't have to squeeze into it, it just goes right on my nail. I wear nail polish because it may be a special occasion or maybe it just makes me feel relaxed after a long day of taking care of my son and cleaning the house. Here is a picture of some nail art that I did on January 14, 2016. My son Malachi had to have surgery on the next …
