Bad Bitch Polish "Night Out" Valentine's Duo

***Press Sample***

Happy Sunday, y'all!!  So far my weekend has been just as busy as this January so far.  I dunno about you, but this "new year" for me is turning out to be more of my last year >.<  I'm working hard to turn the tables around though!  In the next few weeks, I'll be breaking out something pretty nifty that I'm super excited about :D  Sorry (not sorry) for the Vagueblogging :P

So let's get to some polish already, sheesh!

Bad Bitch Polish created an absolutely fantastic "Night Out" duo consisting of two to-die-for cremes that not only look amazing on their own, but also stamp!!!  Check them out!

Here is "The Lover"




The Lover is a sexy, sophisticated red that is a one-coater.  It's gorgeous, and a must-have for red fans!!  Shown here in one coat with topcoat under Ottlite.  In the interest of full disclosure, this polish is highly pigmented and can stain.  I didn't personally experience any staining, but I also wear a base coat (OPI's Nail Envy) and I put cuticle oil around my cuticles beforehand (I've noticed I tend to have an easier time cleaning up that area of stray polish if there's an oil base).  Just wanted to make sure it was known that staining *is* a possibility, and the listing on the website states this as well.

And here is "The Spouse"




The Spouse is a lovely sweet bubblegum pink, also a one-coat-wonder!  I'm wearing one coat in the photos above with topcoat under an Ottlite.

And here are photos of each stamped over one another:









As stamping polishes, these were really, really easy to work with.  They spread out nicely, and also picked up nicely on my stamper (I use a sticky squishy stamper from Jolie Polish).  The images transferred very well, too - I didn't have to re-do any of my nails or try more than once to get the image to transfer from the plate to the stamper.  Two polished thumbs wayyyy up for these!

The Night Out duo is available now!!  Here's where you can get your hands on them and follow the brand:


So whatcha think??  Do these tickle your fancy?  Let me know in the comments below! <3

Bad Bitch Polish January Birthstone Duo

***Press Sample***

Happiest of New Years to you all!!!  I hope you had a lovely night, whether you celebrated out with friends, or stayed in :)  To kick off the New Year, let's take a look at the gorgeous January Birthstone Duo by Bad Bitch Polish!

First up: Gosh Garnet




Gosh Garnet is a gorgeous jelly-like flakie with hints of gold holo glitters throughout, which give it fantastic depth!  This is on the thicker side of "jellies" and was opaque in 2 coats for me.

And secondly: Garnet Galaxy



Sun Shot - Whoaaaaaaaa nelly!!

Garnet Galaxy is a beautiful red holooooooo!!  It has a brilliant blue holo flash in direct sunlight - an absolute stunner all-around, and opaque in 2-3 coats, depending on how thick you apply.  I'm wearing 3 thin coats - but admittedly, with holos like this, I can't help adding just *one* more layer each time :P

This January Birthstone Duo is available now!!  You can purchase them individually at $9.50, or a discounted $18 for them both.  Here's where you can pick them up and follow the brand:


So what do you think of these two?  Can you pick a favorite between them?  Let me know in the comments! <3

Anchor & Heart December Trio

***Press Sample***

Anchor & Heart has been a favorite indie of mine since she first opened, not only because she makes amazing polish, but also because she is an amazing person!  I'm always delighted when she asks me to swatch some of her polishes, so when she asked if I'd do her December Trio, it was a no-brainer to accept :D


Let's jump right in!!



First up: Sugar Plum Sweetheart





Sugar Plum Sweetheart is a lovely pink crelly with various glitters throughout and a subtle gold shimmer.  Opaque in 3 thin coats.

Next up: Winter's Shimmer





Check out that shimmaaaaaaaah!!!  Winter's Shimmer is a beautiful dusty pale blue with small black micro flakies throughout and a lovely orange/gold shimmer.  Opaque in 3 thin coats (my nail line is super strong, which is why you can still see it here).

And finally: All That Glitters is Coal





I just can't with this one.  All That Glitters is Coal is a gorgeous black jelly with gold flakies throughout and a holographic shimmer in direct sunlight.  Opaque in 2 coats - SUCH a stunner!!!

This lovely trio is available now for $10 each or a discounted $28 for all three!  You can find them here:

What do you think of these?  Let me know in the comments!! <3
