NailNation 3000 Review and Swatches - Happy Holo Days 2014 and Wrapped in Shimmer

Hey guys!

I'm back from my little "break" that I had. It wasn't planned or anything like that. I just had some things happen that stopped me from getting any posts up!

Today I have two soon to be released polishes from NailNation 3000! My favorite brand in all the land! 

There will be launch this Wednesday with LOTS of new colors, some of which I'll be sharing here, including these two! The polishes you see today are part of the 2014 Holiday Collection. 

Make sure to swing by the NN3000 FB page - click here - to check out all the seemingly endless sales for this upcoming holiday season!! 

Okay let's get to it shall we?

Happy Holo Days 2014
   

Wrapped in Shimmer  
Coats -
Two flawless coats of each polish. Perfection!
Color Intensity -
Happy Holo Days 2014- This is my favorite of the two polishes! It's this magical light olive with a blue base and flame. This is an absolutely beautiful polish. Even more so in person. A MUST have not just for the holidays but for any season!
Wrapped in Shimmer - This spunky little thing is perfect for all the glitz during the holidays. I wasn't sure if this would take awhile to build up but it was two easy coats and no issue removing like you would imagine with a glitter heavy polish. Perfectly smooth and super fancy.

Mid-Week Coffee Break - Bourbon, Jewels, and Cats

You're probably thinking...what is this mid-week coffee break mumbo jumbo?

Well. Funny story. I had a blog post planned for today and was working on it last night. Then I realized the polish I was wearing that I was going to post about...I already posted about!!

Rookie move. 

But on the plus side...it's given me the opportunity to share some fun finds with you guys!

In the past these types of posts really didn't interest most of my readers so the non-polish/beauty posts took priority. 

Maybe this little post snafu was kismet? Or maybe not. Who knows. Either way I have a few things to share with you guys that are quick and easy. Perfect for a coffee break. 


**obsessed with this chic and fabulous necklace**

**I would LOVE this vanity set up**

**Pumpkin Pie Bourbon and Pear Cocktail - now this is a tasty way to warm up**

**Between the lovely black and gray to the text...these are just perfect**

If you clicked on this post to read today...do you think it's something you'd like to see as a regular post?

I hope you enjoyed the coffee break!

Above the Curve Review and Swatches - Best Things About Fall Collection Part 2

Hey now...get a load of that collage! I just love macros so I had to show some macro love in collage form to close out the posts on this collection!

I hope you enjoyed the pretties in my post yesterday from Part 1 of the Best Things About Fall Collection from Above the Curve!

Today I have the final four to share with you! I didn't pick a fave yesterday but I'll admit I did today!

Now let's get to that collage and lots of photos of pretty polish!

The Best Things About Fall Collection Part 2

(dark indigo base with lots of shimmer and a loose linear holo)
**outdoors indirect sun**

(light gray, almost white, holographic crelly with blue, purple, and pink shimmer)
**outdoor indirect sun**
 

(blurple jelly base with reddish bronze glass fleck shimmer with bits of green micro glitter)
**outdoors indirect sun**
 
Coats -
Two coats of each polish except for These Boots Were Made For Autumn which I used three thin coats.
No issues with formula or application. No staining in sight.
Color Intensity -
Family - I was so glad to see a dark blue in this collection because I just love a good nearly navy. This one was a stunner for sure!
Sweater Weather - I just love the name of this one AND the color. This is bright enough for warmer temps but has enough of a rich and bold feel to it for Fall/Winter.
Crisp Autumn Air - I think if I had to choose a favorite I would choose this one. Which is surprising to me because I'm not normally in love with this tone. The holo in this was just so magical and pronounced but subtle in the sun. It felt so icy and chilled. Love!
These Boots Were Made For Autumn - I'd say this was the sassiest of all. I love flakies so much. This polish felt like it was lit within. It glowed! And purple...I just love purple!
Base Coat - 

 Where to find Above the Curve -

So that wraps it up for this fabulous fall collection from Above the Curve. I just loved them all so much...all in different ways...just like my cats. Because of course I can't pick a favorite!
