She' Nail Polish

*Product was sent in exchange for honest review*

Hi everyone, just in case you need a little reminder.... approaching the platform is Friday.... For some of us, a 3 day weekend is in order, I for sure miss looking forward to Labor Day for the West Indian parade on Eastern Parkway in NYC, waving my Jamaican flag :).

So guess who has a new brand nail product to review, yes yours sincerely!! On my nails I'd like to share with you all a brand I have seen quite a few times on Marisa's blog ( I was happy to see when I was tagged by another friend to check out the company's post on IG, that they were looking for more bloggers to review the polish. The communication went quickly and next thing I know, I got 2 polishes in the mail and here I am blogging about it!!

I received 2 polish. The orange polish first up to the mic is a crelly (creme-jelly formula) polish. I like the formula because I don't own many of this type, I call this color highlighter oranges or Halloween orange. This is 2 coats without a topcoat, I give this formula a 9 only because it isn't good for water marbling. I do a lot of water marble designs and I like to find out which ones are the best for it, this one just doesn't spread in the water.

This is Maxi Dress 

This next polish is called Her Way and I had it my way... I LOVEEEE this formula. It is a smooth cream formula that applied without any signs of streaks and this is only 2 coats without a top coat. The drying time was 5 minutes and the finish is glossy. Did you all hear me when I said I love this one already?! Also this polish is capable of water marbling, it spreads quickly in water so 10 all the way!!

Now you can't have my two, but you can get two of your own from She' Nail Polish HERE. Also, to keep tabs on their upcoming sales and collections, follow these accounts:

The Beauty Buffs: Textured

Hi you all & happy hump day!! I don't know about you all, but I am glad I am looking towards a 3 day weekend, that's surely the fruits of my labor lol.

So you know what day it is *camel voice*, yep it's Beauty Buffs day......

We celebrate one of my favorite themes and a finish that I have grown to love... yes you've guessed it, all that is TEXTURED!! I am using an untried polish from a brand called Colorina which is based in Puerto Rico, these don't have any cool names BOOOO. The green polish goes by being model #12 and the yellow polish is #11. If you're interested in owning any polishes from this brand, you can certainly do so by clicking HERE

Mineral Fusion- Coral Cove

Hi everyone, how was your weekend? My weekend was pretty much a big boring 2 days, but I was grateful not to be working.

The polish I'm wearing today is a polish I've been overlooking for a while at Ulta. So I finally gave in and gave it a try. This polish is called Mineral Fusion & they're $7.99, the formula is excellent as well as the drying time. This is 3 coats w/o a top coat.

Check out Coral Cove

Colorina Chika Sand Tetxture #08


I have started off to a rushing day... household appliances leaking causing a flood in my kitchen & into my bedroom UGH... I initially called out from work but luckily because I had been up since 3:00am trying to maintain the water, my dad was able to come over and rescue us and I was able to make it into work on time (for 7:00).

So on my nails is a coral textured polish without a cool name but is known as #03 by Colorina Nail Lacquer. I've mentioned this company before in my random swatch post HERE.  This formula worked pretty well except for the drying time. At least 10 minutes had gone by and it still was damp to the touch. I do love the color and that it doesn't apply in clumps. When it does dry, it is rock solid and you don't have to worry about smudges. You can pick these up HERE for $1.99.

Have a great day!!

Good mornting!!

So I was off yesterday, my son had his first day of school starting as a 6th grader, he came out with good news of it being a good day :))

During the day Mr. Nailmattic and I went to this outdoor Flea Market in Webster, Florida which is only open on Mondays. Browsing the aisles I spotted a table with no name polishes but the bottle shape is CU-YUTE, reminds me of the Apple sign opposite direction!! 

This is a nice a and classy Red which opaque in just 2 coats. They were only $1, I think I saw these in Born Pretty Store but don't quote me!
