Savannah Lacquer Salt Water Taffy Part 2 Collection

Hello friends! Today's post features a new-to-me brand (though I've been wanting to try them for some time), Savannah Lacquer. The Salt Water Taffy Part 2 Collection consists of six beautifully bright pastel neon shimmers. I am a little obsessed with this color palette! These polishes were designed to watermarble so the formulas are very sheer jellies. Because I don't really like my visible nail line I swatched each one over a white base. It still required three coats of each shade to get the color evened out. Unfortunately the white base made my photos hide the shimmer more than it's visible in person.

Madam Glam Cat Eye Gel Polish + More

Hello lovelies! Today's post is a rare one- a gel polish review! I reviewed Madam Glam's gel polish once before last year (here) and I'm at it again. I am still a gel polish newbie and honestly am still trying to get my technique right. So I'm not going to get detailed on the formulas as I don't have anything else to compare to. 

Sky is the Limit is a saturated blue-grass green creme. This is a shade that my camera consistently messes up but I think I was able to adjust it as close to real life as possible. Shown is two coats, plus top coat.

Glittery Purple is a black base with blue and purple shimmer. The duality of shimmer was really hard to capture but very pretty in person. Shown is two coats, plus top coat.

Higher Spirit is a medium brown with light sandy shimmer magnetic cat eye gel. Shown is one coat over a black base.

This one I actually kind of like with two coats on its own, not over black.

Thunder is a shimmery turquoise blue magnetic cat eye with yellow shimmer that gives it a green dimension. Shown is one coat over a black base.

Galactic Mist is the hardest to describe. It's a shimmery brown and purple magnetic cat eye with goldenrod shimmer. Shown is one coat over a black base.

Each of these gels retails for $19.95 each (15ml). The magnet is not included for the cat eye formulas but can be purchased for $2 here. I have a special discount code for my followers! Use NPS30 for 30% off toward any purchase under the gel category!

Hello lovely Valentines! It's that time of year where everything is swathed in pinks and reds and twitterpation is in the air. Well, maybe not for everyone, but romantic love isn't the only reason to celebrate Valentine's Day. I've always found it a fun holiday to show my affection to friends and family, and hopefully receive some in return.
