PolishHaus’ Atlantean Bleu and Above The Clouds

21 Jul

Hello Dolls!! Did you miss my regular postings? The last two weeks were hectic and I am so happy to blog again! There’s a lot of upcoming swatching and reviewing posts. Up for review are these polishes by PolisHaus. PolisHaus sent over Atlantean Bleu and Above The Clouds for review not too long ago. Without further ado, here’s the review!

Atlantean Bleu is this lovely aquamarine blue shimmery crelly polish with a good variety of glitters in all colors, shapes and sizes. That shade of blue is to die for – it reminds me of swimming in the tropic waters. It’s that kind of blue. The kind that reminds me of summers by the beach or the sea. This is two thin coats of Atlantean Bleu on my nails.

Atlantean Bleu is an awesome polish to wear in the summertime! Would I recommend this? Yes, the formula was fantastic! This applied on very nicely. Two thin coats to full opacity. I was impressed there wasn’t any need to do glitter fishing. Overall Atlantean Bleu is a great crelly. The only downside to this is it does have a strong scent to it. I have spoken to Lesley of PolisHaus about this strong smell. She mentioned that she is switching to different suspension base to address this issue. I give Atlantean Bleu 4 out of 5 stars!

Above The Clouds is a beautiful minty blue crelly polish with a nice variety of of glitters in all colors, shapes and sizes. Girls, this is swoon worthy! I adore the color combination of this minty blue base with all these glitters especially the purple stars!

Would I recommend Above The Clouds? Yes! The formula again was awesome. This applied on very nicely. Two coats to full opacity. I was pleasantly surprised when these purple stars were painted on (star glitters are notorious for being stubborn and one would need to fish for the star glitters out of the bottle). You did amazing Lesley! Above The Clouds does have a strong smell to it but this is something Lesley is going to address by changing suspension bases. I give Above The Clouds 4.5 out 5 stars!

Stardust Polish’s Deja Blue

2 Jul

At dinner last night, I had a very sad nail casualty with a potato peeler when I was trying to peel some potatoes. My pointer fingernail got caught in the peeler and I made a wrong move. Suddenly, the peeler chipped off a good chunk off my pointer fingernail. What’s a girl to do?! I marched right into my nail room (yes, you read that right. I do have a “nail” room in my house. In this room, there are four helmers full of polishes and some other bins full of nail care items as well as a manicure station, a lovely computer desk, a very comfortable chair and a sofa.) Anyway, I clipped and filed my nails back. I decided that there was no better way to rock my short nails other than painting them black.

Short sexy black nails are IN! Bye bye long nails!! Now you know I couldn’t just leave it at plain old boring black nails. I needed something so magical. Something oh so very enticing. Something entrancing. Ok, I know I sound like a witch right now trying to find a spell. Prepared to be spellbound!

Doesn’t that make you go ooooh and ahhhh? Did I cast a spell on you? Is this a case of déjà vu? Continue reading

When I received Summer’s First Bloom by Lacquerlicious for review, my heart skipped a beat (in a good way!) Could this be? A lavender crelly packed with oh so colorful glitters? My purple loving heart leaped with joy and did cartwheels and went all “yes! yes!” on me.
