SinfulShine Swatches

I was sent 3 of the SinfulShine polishes from my amazing nail buddy. At the time I was unable to find these polishes. My Walgreen's of course now has them but I have yet to pick any more up.

First up is Skinny Dipping. This is just 2 coats with no top coat.

Next up is Alfresco. Again only 2 coats. This on is slightly lighter than Skinny Dipping and has some shimmer to it.

The last polish I have is Pragmatic. Only 2 coats and this one has shimmer to it as well.

With all 3 of these polishes they are super shiny but in my opinion they seemed a little thick on application. Overall I really like them though.

My First Jelly Sandwich

Today I have my first Jelly Sandwich to share with you. Ive been swatching my Sinful Colors collection over the last few days and when I swatched Irish Green I had to make a sandwich.

For my Jelly Sandwich I used Sinful Colors Irish Green and Call You Later. Hope you like.

Irish Creme is a much brighter green than my camera would allow to capture. I dont have many Jelly polishes as I've really only learned what they are so this is the one I choose to use for my first Jelly Sandwich.

Here is Irish Creme by itself with 3 coats. Again its a lot brighter in person.

Hope you all enjoyed this. Make sure to follow my blog on bloglovin.

Review of Creations By Lynda Polish

Today I have 3 polishes from Creations By Lynda. All 3 of these are gorgeous polishes.

Between all the typing I've done in the last couple days with updating my polish collection and doing these swatches I broke the corner of my pinkie nail :( on my good hand. At least It was able to hang in there to get these swatches done.

I have never seen the play Rent but it is one of my all time favorite movies. I even have most of the songs on my YouTube playlist to listen to while I edit pictures and type up blog post. First polish I have for you is called Bohemia which is inspired by Rent and is part of the The Broadway Glitz Quartet that includes 3 other polishes.

This is one coat over a black polish with a top coat. Bohemia has a clear base with blue, yellow, white, purple, red and probably other colored glitters. There are so many colors to this polish is hard to add them all.

Next up we have Plumbago which is part of the Flower Fantasy Collection, that includes 3 other polishes.

Plumbago is a blue based polish with multiple sizes and shapes of different blue glitters. This is 3 coats by itself with a top coat.

Lastly we have I Sea Spots which is a single polish (not part of a collection).

I Sea Spots is a white crelly base with green, yellow and blue glitters. This is 3 coats by itself with a top coat. I recommend with this polish to use it alone rather than over an undie (hehe that sounds funny). I tried on my thumb over white and in my opinion you get less of the effect of the glitters by layering over white. Remember that is just my opinion though.

These polishes were sent to me by Lynda of Creations By Lynda. Each of these are available in her shop for purchase, links to Creations By Lynda to follow.

Hope you all enjoyed these swatches as much as I enjoyed swatching them.

Creations By Lynda Pina Colada Cuticle Oil Review

Today's post is all about an amazing cuticle oil that I received from Lynda at Creations By Lynda. I have to start out by saying this is a super amazing product and its done awesome things for me.

Here is a water marble that I did around the time that I received my Pina Colada Cuticle Oil. Please click the image to get a closer look.

Before I show a swatch from more recent I would like to explain my skin issue. I have certain areas on my hands that absolutely hate me due to my Psoriasis. I get very dry and itchy skin and sometimes little bubbles that will form. The point in which I discovered I had Psoriasis it had messed with my hands so bad that my middle finger (on my swatch hand) was, in the best way I can describe, mangled. It basically ruined my nail and I ended up completely losing my pinky nail on the other hand. I went through months of Doctors telling me it was this and another Doctor telling me it was that. Until finally a nurse cared enough to really figure it out. Everything is, for the most part, okay with my skin. I still have breakouts from time to time but its under control.

Since using this cuticle oil my skin is a lot less dry around the cuticles and I don't have, as I call them, hard skin pockets at the tips of my fingers. And the smell of this cuticle oil is AMAZING. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. If you don't already have a bottle of it, you need to get one. And its affordable. For a 15ML bottle its only $5.

This swatch picture was taken a few days ago. Sorry I didn't have my cuticles pushed back but you can really see the difference in how well it is working for my skin. Please click on the image to get a closer look.

Again, If you don't have this cuticle oil from Creations By Lynda, you really need to get it. Not only does it work great but it smells great. It also comes in several scents such as Peach Nectar, Honeysuckle and even Unscented if you don't care much to smell your cuticle oil.

Creations By Lynda Cuticle Oils are only $5 for a 15ML bottle and can be purchased from the link below.
