Not Too Plosihed Swatches & Review PART 1

WARNING: Picture Heavy & Love at first site!!

First is the Zombie collection...from left to right: Blood, Flesh, Bone, Liquify and Dessicate.

Blood is a Dark Red, like the stale blood of a zombie....hence the name. One coat is not enough, but as soon as you hit it with a second coat, it goes on SOOO smooth, and completely covers. No lumps, or chunks, just a smooth flawless surface.

Second is Putrefy..a thick shade of yellow, which follows the stories of Zombies, and looks like something, pardon my language, would spew from his/her mouth! Again, like blood, one cover does not do the justice that 2 coats does! Flawless coverage, unique color, and gorgeous shine are what await you with Putetrify.

Third is Dessicate. A gorgeous purple......Not sure where this one fits in to the Zombie craze, but it sure is one of my two faves of this collection. Unlike the first two, for some reason, one coat covers more thoroughly, two is perfection. It comes out on the nail slightly darker than in the bottle. Def one of my faves! Smooth application, no clumping, strings or running!

Fourth is Flesh...a pea soup green, which does fit with Zombies, as their flesh rots and turns all sorts of nasty colors, lol. One coat is still a bit see through, but two, as with most of the collection, does the trick. I'd have to say that Flesh ahs the best shine of them all! Application is easy, smooth, flawless...

Fifth is Liquify!! This is sooo by far my favorite! It is a gorgeous deep ocean blue, and covers in one OR two coats, but two coats is much more preferable. You can see for yourself above.

Bone is last but not least....this one is just as it claims...the color of bone. It too is smooth and light, full coverage in two coats. Bone doesn't show well on here, but on the nail, it blends in with the tone of paler skin. It is so beautiful! You can get full coverage in one coat, easily! It is an opaque color with a very shiny overtone.  It one word...DIVINE!!

In conclusion, ZOMBIE collection from NOT TOO POLISHED is a must have for those who prefer to stay away from the glitter bombs. It has variety, color and passion..... 

To contact Liz at Not Too Polished: Elizabeth Lafevre

Last, but most importantly, the place to purchase these lovelies!

Art of Godiva

Art of Godiva's Monsoon Dance Review

Today I was lucky enough to be asked to try and review Monsoon Dance by Art of Godiva (Godiva's Beauty)

Monsoon Dance is a blue with a hint of purple (very faint) It has a shimmer to it as well. I have never come across a polish that goes on as smooth as this one. Monsoon Dance covers in one coat if you don't wipe your brush very well when removing it from the bottle. Two coats will be very thick. It will be your own personal preference as to whether you use one or two coats.

The bottle did need to be shaken a few times before use, but once done, it stays nice and thick and no settling occurs. This is by far one of my favorite formulas for a "glitterless" polish. I am for sure going to purchase her other polishes...Doomsday Parade, Golden Goose, Dark Oceans & Tropical Beansprout! They are just too "smooth" and easy to deal with not to.

Visit her site to purchase...   You won't be disappointed!

All opinions are my own. Polish was provided by Art of Godiva.

Here is Sally Hansen's Bling-tastic! It is just that! It is Fantastic! The pictures doesn't do it justice! it shimmers and  sparkles until the cars come home...A bright turquoise blue with silver hexagons thrown throughout, it really brings out the attention:) It doesn't fail to catch peoples eye! I got more compliments wearing this than with any nail polish I have ever worn, even my boyfriend, who could really careless about nailpolish, lol. It goes on a little clumply with the first two coats (seen here with three coats) but the third coat really thins things out smoothly. So, all in all, I was really happy with the performance of the polish.

Top coat is Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Flash Fast Dry top coat 60 seconds. I was VERY impressed with this top coat. Notonly did it dry within a minute or two, but it did not chip and my polish has last for almost a week now without chipping. The above photo is amost a week into my mani, believe it or not!! Just so you know which product it is, it is in a box and the bottle is black. I will take a photo if anyone needs me to.

Tada!! Two more of Sally Hansen Gem Cush line..left is Be-jeweled, a gorgeous pink....and right is Big Money, a gorgeous goldish pink, more on the gold side. Both have the same qualities of the above polish...go on the same, and have the same feel. The only thing they are missing are the silver hexagons.

Please, If you are into flashy, catch your eye polishes, these are right up your alley, so give them a try... they are your type!!

Thanks for stopping bye and see ya soon!! XOXO  Cassie
