Polish Pusher Faux Aquarelle Holographic Swirls + Tutorial

Hey stamperistas
Press Sample

Today I've got some really yummy nail art to share with you all!  Lol I know seriously you are probably like this girl and her holos but I really can't help it everything is just so delicious right now be it indie or mainstream this polish companies have been making me go holo crazy! Even better is how well holo lends itself toward macro photography so I find myself reaching for them more and more these days ;)  And as a bonus I got to play with my Polish Pusher Sheer Perfection colors and her yet to be released holo flakie stunner.  I call that winning!

KBShimmer Summer 2016 Collection Select Swatches & Review

Hiya lacqueristas,
Press Sample

I'm back with some beautiful polishes to share with you from the latest KBShimmer Spring 2016 Collection!  You all know I love me some KBS polishes particularly the Mega Flames that have released so recently so of course I was thrilled when I was offered a slot to post a few of the polishes from this gorgeous collection.  I also received a mani bomb, a first for me, that I will be trying out later though I'll tell you the smell is divine!

Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Asia Collection, Stamping Plate Holder, & New Mini Magic Workshop

Hey Lacquer Lockdown,

Where the f*** have you been Tamira?  Um yeah about I'm a dual degree student with a job and finals combined.  The challenges of both schools (I'm going after 2 graduate level degrees) and graduation (I graduate this weekend) have been pressing.  I've had more panic attacks than I care to think about and somehow came out a bit tattered, but no worse for the wear.  Ok maybe a little worse for the wear, but my nails are still popping (at least not broken) so there's something ;)  Now speaking of nails I still had at least 1/8th of an eye peeled for plate releases.  Those of you that following me on Instagram definitely know that ;) because when I saw the latest set of plates releasing from MoYou London I just about lost my damn mind.  That was of course before I saw their stamping plate holders and mini mats! Gah!

Sweet May?

Hot Off The Stamping Press: UberChic Beauty Collection 9 & New UberChic Mini Nail Art Stamping Plates!

Hello darlings!

Nothing To Disclose

Miss me?  I missed you oodles and oodles.  My life has been so chaotic lately the kind of chaos that just seems to be never ending.  I've hardly been able to touch my nails which feels so weird.  They've been naked for a while of which is definitely not normal for me.  Let's amend that tomorrow, but for now let me share a new release with you from the powerhouse indie brand UberChic Beauty as Brittany gears up for yet another fantastic release!

Hey stamperistas,
Nothing To Disclose

Quickie post today cause my world is all shook up because of finals and crap!  I hate not putting up mega posts or reviews on the weekend but its so clear its just not gonna happen until later next week. Prepare for a mad dash onslaught of reviews at that time as well as more nail art.  In the mean time I'll just be posting more catch up on plate releases.  Today I'm gonna talk about the new expansion happening from MoYou London's Fashionista and Holy Shapes Collection!

Fashionista mascot who basically frightens me per usual with her eclectic mix of patterns and fabrics and just...if this were Office Space - flare.  **shudders**

Rasberries, Greeens, & Golds Magnetic Floral Nail Art + Tutorial

Hey lacqueristas
Press Sample

Ugh I held out against more magnetics for a while.  If you follow me on IG you may have seen this one - which was gorgeous!  Truthfully when I use the US ones it just makes me crave the Masura ones so much more horribly.  Their color range is stunning and frankly there are more polishes from their line than any other.  Not saying that I wouldn't also kill for the Golden Eyes from Dance Legend,  but basically nothing trumps Masura.  Nonetheless I had to had to do this.  I was playing around after one of my prior mani's popped off and then I created this magic.  Suddenly I had to do a full blown mani and of course I had to share ;)  Let me know if you'd like to see more magnetic mani's in the future or the different techniques too!

Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection Swatches

Hey lacqueristas,
Press Sample

Today I'm super excited to share another awesome collection of nail polishes with you!  I've been so blessed lately to work with so many talented polish makers with so many delicious and totally gorgeous polishes.  So when Sara of Cupcake Polish told me about her newest collection of linear holos for the spring I was all in.  In case you forgot I swatched her last collection The Unicorn Collection and it was spectacular!  This collection seriously game me some severe chills as well when I saw them.  I seriously can't get enough of her beautiful polishes and I guarantee you won't either when you see these. Lets go!
