Nail Polish reviews, nail art and more

I hope you are in the mood for spring colors, because today I’d love to show you 3 pastel glitters from The Royal Tea Room collection by LYZ Cosmetics. In my previous post I briefly showed you the bottles, and now it’s time to look at them closer :)

About 3 weeks ago I was contacted by Elizabeth, the creator of LYZ Cosmetics. She kindly offered to send me for review her new Spring 2015 collection of glitter polishes titled Royal Tea Room. I was super excited and of course I said YES!

Elizabeth turned out to be a very sweet and friendly person. I thought it would be nice to get to know her better, so I suggested I do a kind of interview with her, and she agreed. Below you can find my questions and her answers, as well some intro pics of the Royal Tea Room collection that was released this March. To start with here is a group pic of the colors:

I’ve been swatching and wearing a lot of glitters lately, so I bought this peel off base to make glitter removal process easier. I don’t think I need to explain what such bases are and what they do :) In my case the Dance Legend base really helps with glitters, and actually not only with them, but also with shimmers, cremes, and textured polishes.

I guess white nail polish is essential for many nail art lovers, because this pure color is often used for backgrounds. Almost any design will look good on white, it’s like a drawing on a sheet of paper. I always have at least 2-3 bottles of white polish, and I love trying whites from new brands. This time I’d love to show you a white creme by a Russian cosmetic brand Eva Mosaic from Saint Petersburg.

The Frizz is my very first glow in the dark nail polish. The thing is, when I received it for review with other Starrily colors, I had no idea about its ability to glow. I only found it out when I painted my nails and turned off the light to watch a movie while waiting for the polish to dry. I saw my nails glowing brightly… and then I read the name of the polish! So when it comes to nail polishes Mawi, the owner of Starrily, she is not short of awesome surprises :)

Let’s start with a nail design I did using Hen-Party and Fireworks, the polishes I’d love to show you today. They belong to the Dance Legend City Lights collection of jelly glitters that was released in December.

A quick post to show you a simple nail design I did the other day using floral water decals.

Two designs featuring ORLY Glow

I doubt I’d ever bought ORLY Glow if it wasn’t for one of those “buy one and get one free” deals in the local beauty store. Together with this nude I got a super cheerful coral nail polish that I’ll show you later, and today I have 2 nail looks that I did using Glow and acrylic paints.
