Girly Bits Vegas Exclusive-What Happens in Vegas...Ends Up On Snapchat.



I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Pam from Girly Bits at Cosmoprof this year.  What a pleasure it was to meet her!  She is every bit as fantastic in person as she is online. 
  While in Vegas, I received Pam's Vegas exclusive What Happens on Facebook...Ends Up On Snapchat.  This is her third year making a Vegas exclusive and it does not disappoint!  (I just have to add that they are also numbered and I was completely tickled to receive #1 in the collection as well!  WOW.)

What Happens in Vegas... was 2 flawless coats.  As you can see by the pictures, it will absolutely stop traffic. I was so completely mesmerized by my nails the entire time I was wearing it!

Nice Peaches! is an opaque peach cream with bits of gold shimmer and flakes.

I absolutely love this polish and can't wait to wear it again!
Parting Thoughts: I love the peach shade and the gold shimmer is an added bonus!

Price: $8-$9 each  Nice Peaches! was a Vegas Exclusive but will be available for a limited time only. Follow 6 Harts on her Facebook page to find out more information.

Ninja Polish Gemstone Dreams Collection



I am excited to be able to show you the new Ninja Polish Gemstone Dreams Collection! This collection of eight polishes showcases a deep shimmer in each one. 

Andesine Dreams is a deep red with gorgeous shimmer.  I used two coats.  Honestly, this color changes depending on what lighting you are in!  This photo was taken in my light box and is accurate for what I saw.
This was taken outside in the shade and was also accurate!  
I was completely blown away by the color of this polish and it went on smoothly to boot!  You can see how the sun and shade changed how it looks in this macro.
Rubellite Dreams is a bright red shimmer. I used 2-3 coats to get coverage. 
It went on flawlessly and is a great shimmer for the holidays!
This macro really captures the true shimmer!
Fire Opal Dreams is a fiery orange shimmer. I love the way this burns in the sunlight!
I used 2-3 coats and it went on smoothly.  
This photo in my light box really captures the shimmer. 

Tsavorite Dreams is a grass green shimmer!  I used three coats and it went on smoothly, just like all the rest.

Tanzanite Dreams is a royal blue shimmer. 
I used 2-3 coats for opacity and it went on easily.

Obsidian Dreams is a charcoal polish with grey shimmer. YUM.  
I used 2-3 coats and had no issues other than wanting to star at my nails.
This is everything.
Sapphire Dreams is my favorite of the two blues.  It is a metallic blue shimmer.
It went on easily in two coats. 

Amethyst Dreams was probably my favorite in the collection. (It's so hard to choose!)  
It went on easily in two coats and the shimmer is stunning.

Parting Thoughts: This is a great consistent collection.  I am a huge lover of shimmer and this collection did not disappoint. My favorites are Amethyst, Obsidian, and Sapphire Dreams.

Price: $10 each

Fair Maiden Polish Vegas Exclusive-Just A Mirage



Fair Maiden Polish has been coming on strong on the indie polish scene and I finally had a chance to try it for myself.  During the Cocktails and Colors 2015 event in Vegas, I received my first Fair Maiden Polish!  
Just a Mirage is a plum linear holo that went on smoothly in two coats. 
I had wondered what all the hype was about and now I know. This color is incredibly unique in a world where it seems every color has been holo'ed already. Fair Maiden also included this gorgeous ring.
Application was smooth and my only criticism is that maybe the brush was a tiny bit hard to use compared to some of the larger flatter brushes I have seen in other indie brands; however, this could be why her polishes are much more affordable!  I was pleasantly surprised to see them range in price from $7 to $10. 
While most holos look amazing in the sun, they don't always look as good indoors.  Just a Mirage was made in a way that it still carries itself beautifully in the shade! Kudos to you, FMP!
Parting Thoughts: I can see what all the hype is about and I definitely want more!

Price: $7-$10

Ninja Polish Infinity Gems Collection!


  Ninja Polish has been busy at work creating new collections and I am excited to show them to you!  Tonight, I have the Infinity Gems Collection which consists of six holos and one holo glitter topper.
Here's what Ninja Polish has to say about this collection:
Ninja Polish Infinity Gems collection are straight out of the pages of your favorite comics, not to be confused with the cinematic universe! Express yourself with the power of the six Infinity Gems...but don't let Thanos find out! These are bright, holographic polishes representing the 6 of course the 7th polish is a representation of the golden Infinity Gauntlet (not shown in current photos), to wield them all! 
Soul is a beautiful grass green holo that went on effortlessly in two coats. 
The sun wasn't out when I swatched these, but the holo still came out to play!

Power is a strong red holo that went on in two buttery smooth coats.
This is a true red holo and a must have for any collection!

Time is a burnt orange holo.
It went on easily in two coats.  

Reality is messing with my mind!  Is it yellow or is it lime?!  I suppose it really depends on the lighting you're in, but I would say it leans yellow.
I used three coats for opacity.

Space is a grape purple holo.  
I used two coats and it went on just as easily as the others. 

Mind is a royal blue 1-2 coater!  I must say, I was outta my mind when I put this on!  
While the holo wasn't as strong, the color was ridiculous and I couldn't stop staring at it!

Gauntlet is a holo glitter topper in a clear base. I used one coat over Mind.
WOW. I was in awe of my nails when I saw these two together!  Gauntlet goes on silky smooth in one coat.

Parting Thoughts: Ninja Polish had been on hiatus for some time, but now that she is back, it is safe to say her creative genius never took a break!  These polishes are magnificent and a jut-have for any holo lover.

Price: $10 each
