Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Summer Collection 2017

PR SAMPLES

Hiya Dolls!

We are getting some gorgeous sunny weather here in Southern BC!  I've been wishing Summer to come and it's finally here!  The new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Summer Collection 2017 showed up on my door step and it just screams Summer!!!

There are six cream shades in this Collection and they are so bright and beautiful.

Ripple In Time is a fun bright blue with a great formula.  I used two coats for complete opacity.



Tulips Are Talking is a sweet floral pink cream.  I used two coats.



Get Juiced is a juicy watermelon pink cream.  Again, two easy coats.



Tickle Me Pink is a pink-leaning red cream.  It leaned very red on me, but a perfect Summer red!  Two coats.



Peach of Cake (I love that name!) is a bright-yet-soft pastel peach cream.  The first coat was streaky, but I really loaded up my brush for the second coat and it covered nicely.



 Grape Gatsby is a fun, light grape purple cream.  Two coats.



I topped them all with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat for a high shine!

You can find this Collection and all 88 shades of the Complete Salon Manicure polishes in select stores across Canada now.  They retail for $9.95.

Have a great day my lovelies!

Zoya Wanderlust Collection, Summer 2017

PR SAMPLES

Hey Dolls!

I have the gorgeous new Zoya Wanderlust Collection for Summer 2017 to share with you today!  There are 12 shades in this fun collection, 8 creams and 4 shimmers.  Each and every one of these polishes have a formula that is perfection!  Most are two coats, and there were a couple that only needed one coat!

Winnie is a described as a 'soft watermelon pink cream'.  It's a lovely soft, yet still bright pink.



Esty is a fun, pink cream with a hint of purple.



Byrdie is fuchsia pink cream.  It is 'similar' to Esty in shade, but does lean more pink than Esty.



Sawyer is described by Zoya as a 'soft taffy orange cream'.  This beauty has an amazing formula, especially for an orange!  It is super pigmented, one of the best oranges I've ever applied!



Lois is a bright, violet cream.  I am such a sucker for bright purples, so this is one of my faves in the collection.



Sonia is a beautiful Summer red cream.  I love bright pinky-red shades like this in the Summer-time.



Cora is a stunning, muted coral cream.  I applied two thick coats of this to get perfect coverage.



Arbor is an dusty olive green cream.  This one is a one-coater!  I'm not a fan of green nail polish in general, but I do like that this has a soft muted look to it.



Scout is a shimmery moss green. The shimmer in here is so beautiful, I love shimmer in almost any polish!



Journey turned out to be my fave in the collection!  It's a stunning, strawberry red with the most fabulous shimmer! 



Mandy is a bright, berry pink with shimmer running throughout.



River is a bright shimmering blue.  The shimmers have a thin consistency, but you don't get any running or pooling by your cuticles.  They build up nicely in two coats.



The Zoya Wanderlust Collection for Summer 2017 is available now at Zoya.com 

Which one of these beauties is your favorite?  Will you be buying this Collection?

Have a great day lovelies,

New OPI California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017

PRESS SAMPLES

Hiya Dolls!

I have the gorgeous new OPI California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017 to share with you!  There are 12 new shades, 'including rich merlot and punchy pink, orange and coral hues, along with soft warm shades of rose, pink, peach and nude', according to OPI.

Time for a Napa is a bright, peachy-coral cream.  I love love love this shade!  Application was a dream, especially for a coral!  Two easy coats, no streakiness!



Malibu Pier Pressure is a sweet cotton candy pink.  This one is super bright in real life, it has a neon vibe to it.  The formula was pretty thick, but it leveled out nicely.  Two coats.



GPS I Love You is a deep, hot pink cream.  This one is perfection, super saturated.  Two coats.



Santa Monica Beach Peach is a hot punchy orange with a crelly finish.  I did two coats and could still see VNL, a third coat would probably take care of that.



Me, Myselfie and I is a bright coral cream.  This one has a perfect formula, and that's saying a lot for a coral!  Two perfect coats.



Feeling Frisco is a light nude that pretty much matched my exact skin tone.  Application was easy, two smooth coats.



Barking Up the Wrong Sequoia is a lovely dusty peach cream.  I was surprised at how much I loved this one.  I don't always love peach shades on me, but that dusty tone in there made me fall in love with it!  Two coats.



Excuse Me, Big Sur! is a lovely dusty rose with a perfect formula.  This one was so saturated, I almost got away with one coat!  It is a little thick, but it levels out nicely.



This is Not Whine Country is a bright purple merlot.  This one is a bit sheer, it ends up with a crelly finish.  Two coats.



To the Mouse House We Go! is a Minnie Mouse red with a jelly finish.  The formula was fine, two easy coats. Just watch your cuticles, it will stain!



Don't Take Yosemite for Granite is a slate grey with lovely silver shimmer.  This was an unexpected favorite of mine.  Great formula, two easy coats.



Sweet Carmel Sunday is a fabulous coppery, rose-gold.  You all know that I love shades like this now!  I can't get enough of metallics!  Two coats.



There we have it my lovelies!  The 12 new polishes of the California Dreaming Collection for Summer 2017.  Which one is your fave?

The California Dreaming Collection is available now in select salons, professional beauty outlets and prestige stores.  Check out OPI's website for more details.

Have a great May long weekend my lovelies!
