Kawaii Nail Lacquer

Press Sample

Hi Lovelies!  It has been ages, I know.  Life has slowed down a little bit in the last couple of weeks, as I had gallbladder surgery on the 23rd of April!  Luckily, I'm almost back to normal (and hopefully these bruises are almost gone too).   It is amazing how advanced we continue to be in medicine!  I'm extremely thankful I didn't have to miss much work.

Even though I'm still taking it easy, I decided that this weekend would be a great opportunity to get my polish room a little more organized.  So I sat down to look through what I have in my unposted folders and found this awesome post that I haven't shared.  I have to apologize, as these shades are no longer available, but I still wanted to share to highlight the beauty and quality of the brand, Kawaii Nail Lacquer.  You can purchase at https://www.etsy.com/shop/KawaiiNailLacquer.  There are many other shades that you can choose from.  Polishes retail at $9.00 each.  You can keep up with Kawaii Nail Lacquer HERE on Facebook or HERE on Twitter.

Also, on the Etsy storefront is a message!

KawaiiNailLacquer's Shop Announcement

Kawaii has had a lot going on over here after just being married, we have decided to expand onto cosmetics as well! Right now we are perfecting the bath bomb making art, Soaps which we have one up as we speak, with tons more scents to come. Shortly after we will welcome lotions, sugar scrub bath whips, all with ingredients listed on the box, as well as in your listing so please read beforehand.

I am so happy to be back <3

However, as of 2014. We will NOT be shipping internationally any longer. Due to prices going up even higher Jan 23rd 2014. Shipping over seas will be $15 dollars or more and sadly, we we're paying all the other fees we didn't charge. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Also, who doesn't love a sale?
As most of you know about a month and half ago Mufasa fell super ill, however he is a happy and healthy boy now. I am running a sale to help pay the never ending vet bill that we have received, and is due in less than 2 months! Any sales will help out, even if you help repost, I will and would be eternally grateful. Just use "MUFASA2014" for 20% off of an order $15 or more. Anyone who purchased something from me last time, I thank you so much for helping out in my time of need. The sale will be running for an entire week! Monday to Monday May 5th!

The formula must be spoken of first.  I loved these.  They all glided on and the glitter top coats laid flat.  Jamie, the owner, creates combinations that are fun and bold.

First up, Baby Doll.


For the base, I used 2 coats of Zoya Arabella.  You can see the original post - HERE.

Without topcoat

With Topcoat


I used 1 coat of Baby Doll and 1 coat of Clearly on Top by KBShimmer.


I love the white glitter in this.  It is so popping, and with the texture, it gives it a floating look!  I couldn't have been happier that way this turned out.


Close up!


Next, Dance Pink Dance!


I used two coats for Dance Pink Dance along with Clearly on Top.


The beautiful bold blue, purple, and pink look as if they are in pink milky heaven floating around!  Such a fun shade.


Close up.


Another gorgeous jelly shade, Purple Chaos.


I used 3 coats of Purple Chaos.


The blue and purple iridescent glitters look so deep in purple jelly!


Close up!


Next up, Dots All About It.


For the base, I used KBShimmer Pigment of My Imagination.  I haven't reviewed this yet, but here's a sneak peek!


You can purchase this at KBShimmer or for International orders, Harlow & Co.


I then used 1 coat of Dots All About It with Clearly on Top by KBShimmer.



I think something about the shift to the base and these amazing glitters, makes this SUCH a party mani!  I felt like I had to go somewhere with these.  I think maybe New Year's would be fun to wear this!



Next, Barney's Dance Party.


For Barney's Dance Party, I used 2 coats and Clearly on Top.


Another milky amazing base with purple and green glitters for Barney!

Close up!


And last, Salad Daze.


For Salad Daze, I used 3 coats along with Clearly on Top.


Such a fun mix!  I love the mix of colors in this one.  Such a fun name too ;-)

Dollish Polish Blogiversary Giveaway! (Closed)


Hi everyone!!! Today I'm TWO blog years old!!! I'm so excited!!! Just sorry I haven't been here as much over the last few months!! I miss it so much!  Hopefully you saw my update -HERE.

I wanted to do a lil somethin somethin for you guys, because you all mean so very much!!  You guys give me a reason to keep up this hobby!  Winter has been rough on these cuticles, but I'm going to try to take better care and try a new polish every few days.

So how about a quick look back to my first post~!  You can see it - HERE.  It's funny to critique my old work!  I feel as though I've improved, so that's good haha! :-D

Anyway! I'm excited to say that I have a few beauties from Dollish Polish to giveaway.  One winner will win 3 Full Size Dollish Polishes: Purple Nurples, Space, The Final Frontier HYPERDRIVE, and It's So Fluffy, I'm Gonna Die!  These are just three of my faves!  You can purchase Dollish Polish at HERE at DollishPolish.com or through HERE at Llarowe.  You can also stay up to date on information by following Dollface22772 (Dollish Polish) on Facebook and Llarowe on Facebook.  Both are also on Twitter - @DollishPolish & @llarowe  and Instagram - @Dollface22772 & @llarowe.


First up, Purple Nurples.



I used 3 coats along with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.  I love the purple jelly filled with these amazing glitters!


Close up!  The mix of glitters is stunning, plus that flaky iridescence! Drool!
 

And since I'm home on a snow today today (one perk of this awful weather!), I ran outside quick to snag a couple pictures in the bright sun!  It's the perfect light box with all this snow hahahaha :-P




And I was thinking that it'd be awesome to matte this, but then forgot midway removing it (whoops), so two nails only...but this was the 3 coats with KBShimmer Clearly on Top, and I added 1 coat of Essie Matte About You. Stunning, right?




Next up, we have Space, The Final Frontier HYPERDRIVE.  This is amazing.  I kick myself for not trying this sooner.  I put it on last night knowing I bought one for the giveaway and needed to swatch it.  I have no idea why I never put it on sooner, because I couldn't even take it off last night!  I have a ton to swatch and I was drooling looking at this in different lighting!  So these first few are light box.


This is a great picture you can start to see some holo faintly!




Here are some sun pics!






If you noticed, the giveaway version is slightly different.  I have an older batch that materials are no longer available.  The new version is stunning though!  Check out these gorgeous comparison pictures!





And finally, It's So Fluffy, I'm Gonna Die!



You can see my original review of this - HERE!  This is two coats with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.




Such a gorgeous pink!  So many different glitters make this amazing in person.



See that close up!?  Yes...it is just beautiful, isn't it?!
