Naild'it Rock n Dot Fusion

Press Sample Purchased by Me 

I hope everyone is having a nice evening and is staying safe. A lot of terrible storms are coming through the Midwest Area. So far so good here in my neck of the woods in Missouri.

Tonight, I have another New Naild't polish. Andrea of Naild'it has been doing an amazing job bringing us these awesome new creations. I'm liking so many of them! I was sent this one for review as well.

Rock n Dot Fusion. 


Rock n Dot Fusion contains just three basic colors of pink (2 shades), black and white. I love the pink flowers in this, they are beautiful and the bright pink really makes a statement. I layered this over MAC Light Affair. One of my 'go to' nude shades. My skin tone is very light and I love how Light Affair compliments my lighter skin tone.  



The formula on Rock n Dot Fusion was great. I easily brushed this on and the flower glitters came out with no fishing at all. I also love the bar glitter in this, in both black and white.


You all know how I love bar glitters. When using a bar glitter polish you can brush the polish left and right along the nail as well as from cuticle to tip. This ensures you get the bar glitters to point in different directions for a more eye pleasing look. 


Rock n Dot Fusion would also look great on a lighter pink base as well. There are so many options yu can go with.


If you would like to purchase Naild'it polish you can find them at Llorowe.com or the Naild'it Etsy Store. Follow Naild'it on Facebook to get up to date information on shop opening times and release dates.

Naild'it - Peace Love n Hairspray!

Press Sample Purchased by Me
 
Evening everyone :) Sorry I have been MIA for a bit, but I had a few health issues that kept me away .... But I'm back, and with a Naild'it polish that is outta this world, Peace Love n Hairspray.

I started with a base color of Orly Shine, which I absolutely adore. It's a very metallic and shiny silver that is a must have for any nail polish hoarder collector.


I was originally going to do a black or white base, and I am so glad I switched it to this instead!


I think these two polishes go together amazingly well. I think a lot of times silver is neglected, and as you can see in these pictures - it shouldn't be.

I dabbed on several layers of Peace Love n Hairspray. I wanted the glitters to be really dense. 


There is a combination of white, orange, blue, red, yellow, gold, black and green glitters. WOW - Just jammed pack full of color. The shapes vary as well from Hex to square with a trace of bar glitters. This is such a fun polish!

This is a rainbow packed into a polish. The formula was excellent as well. No thinning needed.

Influenster Review


I hope everyone is doing well today. We have had several horrible storms rip threw my area over the last 3 days, and I have been away from my PC during that time. We did have a Tornado touch down near us, but luckily my home, family and friends are safe. I can only hope the same for all my viewers out there!

Today I have a fun and different type of post. Influenster sent me a box sponsored by Palmolive.  I know for me, being a nail person, anything that I apply to my hands is important. I have extremely DRY skin so I'm cautious with products, even dish detergent.





As you can see, my package was a little beat up for the post, but the contents were safe inside!


 

Palmolive has long known that the daily task of doing dishes shouldn't wreak havoc on your hands. Their formula now has more caring ingredients than before, with the latest offerings in the Palmolive Soft Touch dish liquid line. Palmolive as always, tough on grease, soft on hands. 

I received two bottles, Aloe (blue bottle) and Vitamin E (pink Bottle).


The Aloe version is formulated for Dry Skin and the Vitamin E version is formulated for soft hands.


I'm normally a Dawn person when it comes to my dish detergents. I was currently using Dawn with OLAY Moisturizer. So when I received these I was really anxious to try them out. This is probably the first time I was ever excited to do dishes lol. 

I LOVED them. I tried the Soft on Hands Vitamin E formula first. I really loved how soft it felt. I tested it on an extremely greasy pan. It cut through the grease with no issues. I didn't get that greasy feeling on glass like I do when I have tried other off brands that I have grabbed because of the sale price (which I regretted after the purchase). The only thing I didn't like was the slightly floral smell. The smell was strong and pleasant, I'm just not a floral person over all. 

Next, I tested the Dry Skin Aloe formula. This one was a hit for me!!! The smell was more earthy and natural (right up my ally). Again, it cut threw the grease with no issues, pretty much exactly like my Dawn does. The feeling of my hands afterwards was amazing. I can truly say I will not be purchasing the Dawn OLAY anymore. I was getting a skin tightening feeling after use, and that is not happening with the Palmolive. I washed dishes over an hour ago and my hands still feel soft, no tightening feeling that I always get after washing dishes.

I highly recommend both of these. If you are like me, and struggle with lots of dry skin and dry cuticles, this product is for you - Your hands will thank you! 

Now, since I'm all about the nails - I matched up my nails with the bottles lol. 


Swatched with Sation: Plenty of Frogs. This is my new favorite Sation polish. A gorgeous green with pretty glitter shimmer. It is SO PRETTY!!!!! This is a must have Sation. This was a fast sloppy swatch just having fun with my new soaps lol.



 Swatched with Sation: Teacher's Pet. Ughhh probably my worst formula polish EVER. I love my Sation polishes, but this one was a HOT MESS. It streaked, it dragged and it caused balding. I thinned it, and that made it just a watery HOT MESS. I hate to even show you this swatch - it was that bad. I think I'm actually going to throw this polish away lol. I wouldn't even give it away....I would not wish this horror on anyone! I'm not having the greatest swatching day so maybe I will try it another day. We will see.

Thanks for visiting guys. Check out Palmolive's Website for more information on these fabulous new dish detergents!

Naild'it Bleeding Love

Press Sample

Today I have another Naild'it polish for you guys. This one I really can't say anything about except maybe, 'WOW'!
You guys have been spoiled this week with a post every day. Tomorrow, I return home from my trip to New York, so It will go back to 2/3 posts a week.  I would love to continue to post every day, but having a job prevents that! Thumbs down to working ..LOL!  Thumbs up for Auto Posts :)
This is 3 coats alone with 1 coat of Seche Vite top coat. Bleeding Love is a gorgeous pinkish red, a beautiful mix of the two colors. The glitters are purple, white, red, and pink. This polish contains both Pink and red heart shaped glitters. If you look closely at my index finger you can see a heart glitter. There is also one on my pink finger as well.
I love the jelly type base in this one, it's very shiny and eye catching.
There is a gorgeous shimmer in this one, you can see that above on my pink finger. LOVE THIS.
Here is a close up of this one..
This is a must have for your collections in my opinion.
If you like to purchase Naild'it polish you can find them at Llorowe.com or the Naild'it Etsy Store. Follow Naild'it on Facebook to have up to date information on shop opening times and release dates.

Naild'it Butterflies in Rainbow Skies...

Press Sample

I have another Naild'it polish for you guys for today's post. Andrea at Naild'it has just recently released a bunch of new polishes, and I was sent this one for review. Today I have Butterflies in Rainbow Skies.
 
When I first saw this polish my first initial reaction was truthfully, 'Meh'. It didn't do anything special for me at the moment I saw it, but like many other polish I don't immediately like, I wanted to give it a try. I am so glad I gave it a chance - this polish is AMAZING!!
 
I decided to layer this over Lime Crime's Lavendairy. That was a mistake because Lavendairy has too much pink in it, and it was not a good match at all. I don't recommend you use the same base with this polish. I did make it work in the end...
 
 
This polish turned out to be so beautiful. Now please note that the polish has pink butterfly glitters in it as well, but I didn't get any when I lightly brushed this on. I ended up liking it even without the butterflies.
 
 
Out of the new collections that have come out for Naild'it, this one ended up being my favorite of them all. This is 2 coats of Lavendairy with 2 coats of Butterflies in Rainbow Skies, with Seche Vite as the top coat.
 
 
Neon has become really prominent in a lot of Spring/Summer collections for 2013. Unfortunately, not a lot of us can comfortable wear neon colors. This polish is the perfect solution.  The glitters are translucent neon hex glitters and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!
 
 
The colors of yellow, pink, orange, and purple work so well together.
 
 
 
If you like to purchase Naild'it polish you can find them at Llorowe.com or the Naild'it Etsy Store. Follow Naild'it on Facebook to have up to date information on shop opening times and release dates. 
 
Do you guys like this one? Isn't this just beautiful? I would love to hear what you guys think about this one.

Naild'it Merry Row Round..hang on for a wild ride!

Press Sample

For those that follow me, you know my two major weaknesses with nail polish are bar glitter and large dot glitters. Todays polish is from Naild'it called Merry Row Round. This is a milky white base with TONS of glitter, including one of my favorite shaped glitters - round dot glitters.


This is 3 coats with 1 coat of Seche Vite Top Coat. This polish is packed full of colors. This reminds me of a exploded PiƱata lol. I'm loving all the colors that Andrea is using to fill her new polishes. Not just one or two....more like over 8 different colors!
 
 
The large dot glitters in this is instant LOVE for me. It works so well with this polish.
 
 
The formula on this was really impressive for a white base polish. It went on easily with no issues, balding or dragging.


EPPPS...how amazing is this!

Naild'it - Put a Ring on it...

Press Sample

I'm back, as promised :) Right about now I'm in New York and having a blast (hopefully - lol). It's Mother's Day and I'm with my MOM!!!! Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely Mother's out there today.  I myself do not have my own children, but my husband has three boys, so that makes me a Step Mom :)
I also have 2 cats and I clean up poop, throw up, feed them, bath them, break up fights, clean up after them. In my book that definitely qualifies me as a Mom too. My Husband always gets me something for Mother's Day from the cats lol.  This year we are apart, but we will celebrate when I get back home to Missouri!
On to the post.....today I want you guys to check out this AMAZING polish from Naild'it.  I will warn you ahead of time that I'm going to say I love this polish about 100 times in this post.
This is  clear base polish with Gold, Silver and Holo Glitters. My Mom deserves a gold Medal so this one is for her!
I LOVE THIS POLISH.

I really don't have anything like this in my collection. It's actually just two colors, gold and silver, but it's amazing. I LOVE THIS POLISH! This is 2 coats of OPI: My Boyfriend Scales Walls, with two dabbed on coats of Put a Ring On it (how cute is that name?)!
I think this polish would look amazing on ANY color. I see it over Pink, Red, Gold, Orange, Blue, Purple and Black. It would look amazing on any of these. I LOVE THIS POLISH. 

 I hope everyone has a happy Mother's Day!! Thanks for visiting as usual and I will back shortly!
You can purchase Naild'it polishes on LLorowe.com or The Naild'it Etsy Shop. Thanks for visiting and I will be back again soon!

Polished Addict - Swatches

Press Sample

Today I have a new Indie Polish for the blog that I'm really excited about! I received a email from Polish Addict asking me to review some polishes, I have only recently seen her polishes pop up on Facebook but I was very intrigued, so I jumped at the opportunity to swatch some polishes for her. Today I will show you 2 polishes that are both mind blowing to me :)
First up is 20/20
This is a super creamy white based polish with scattered glitters in different colors and sizes. This polish is super fun and festive. It reminds me of a birthday party or a birthday cake with sprinkles. The formula on this one was decent, considering it's a white polish. We all know the hardships of white polish (thickness).
I love the large black hex glitters and black bar glitters. We all know about my secret obsession with bar glitters. I think I love bar glitters so much, because so many others fear it lol.

I love the bottles on these polishes. The fun colorful labels are eye catching, and even more so in real life.
Though the formula was slightly thick, (I blame the white base on that), the glitters in this were awesome. They easily brushed on and spread evenly. No fishing for glitters, if that's a concern. I was super impressed with the formula and how smoothly it applied.
Next up is Hypnotize. I can not even tell you how amazing this is. I feel like this polish was custom made just for me lol.  This polish is not in a clear base, it's the color of the bottle, but I still layered it. I believe you can leave it on it's own if you choose to, but you would have to do at least 3 coats.
I layered mine over Sation's Loudest Color. It was a match made in heaven.



CHECK THIS OUT....!!!



This polish is so impressive. The formula was perfect and went on so easily. As in 20/20 the glitters (including the stars) brushed on very easy as well. No fishing for glitters here!
I love the giant white Hex glitters in this. You can see one above on my ring finger nail and below on my pointer finger nail.

This is probably the only polish I have ever had with stars that did not have to be fished out. The glitters are really packed into both of these polishes!

 Both polishes were beyond my expectation, and you will be seeing a lot more of this brand here at The Polish Hoochie.  How gorgeous is this??!! I am not taking this one off. I refuse HA!


My favorite part of this polish is the shimmer within it. Can you see it too in the close up above? I'm putting this polish in my number 1 slot of all time. Yes, I love it that much! I already see that this bottle will be used up quickly. I need a back up of this STAT:)

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Scrub and Lotion - 60 Second Fix for Hands

Purchased by Me
 
First, before I get to the 60 Second Fix for Hands, I just wanted you to all know that as you read this I am currently on my way to St. Louis International Airport. I'm headed to New York this up coming week to spend Mother's Day with my Mom. I'm BEYOND excited to see my Mom!!!!!

 I haven't been home in over 2 years (she came to visit me last year), so I'm looking forward to seeing all my friends and family. This was a sort of last minute trip, so unfortunately I was not able to line up Guest Posters for my absence.  Have no fear!!! The blog will NOT go silent in my absence. I have several posts auto scheduled (like this one lol) to keep the blog going for the time I am away. Also, I will be on Facebook a lot since I will have so much time off.
So, in short I won't be here but I will be here :) On to my post...

For those that follow my blog and follow me on Facebook, you may remember last month I took a trip to Chicago. While I was there, I hit the Mall and came home with this...


I'm not a big Crabtree & Evelyn Fan, but for some reason I was drawn to the store this time around. I went in and sniffed around (sniffed around - as in smelling and touching everything lol).  The Sales Associate was very polite, and not pushy at all. She did notice me looking at the scrubs and offered to do a hand scrub for me. I love in store demonstrations, it gives me a chance to test products that I would normally not purchase.

She grabbed the set shown above, and did her thing. I loved the feel and the smell of it. I'm really big into hand scrubs. When I use cuticle remover, I always follow that up with a scrub. I also like to use scrubs in between nail swatching....Yes, you heard me right. After I swatch a polish, I remove it, add cuticle oil, and then use a scrub, dry my hands and move on to my next swatch. It cleans things up nicely. After the in-store demonstration, my hands felt like SILK. They were soooooo soft. There was no way I was walking out of that store without this set lol.
This is what is included in the box...

The scent on the scrub and lotion are very strong. I decided on the Citron because I love all things citrus. The set does come in other scents. After you use the scrub and lotion, the smell lingers for at least an hour afterward, so make sure you love the scent.

Call me old fashion, but I love that the scrub comes in a metal tube. The lotion is in a plastic tube. There are just three simple steps:
1. Scrub
2. Rinse
3. Apply Lotion
 

The scrub is very granular and very scruby. Wait...is scruby a word??? - It is now lol. This is no weak or gentle scrub.  For me that's perfect, it gets rid of all that dead skin on your hands and cuticle area. I really LOVE this scrub.

Now the one surprising factor of this scrub is it does not rinse squeaky clean.  It feels as if you have already applied lotion. I highly recommend going into a store for a demonstration to make sure you really like the texture and soft feel after the scrub.
