Forget Me Not

Non press sample polish reviews

Forget Me Not: March – May

Happy Birthday to yours truly…..ME!!!! Good Morning and happy Thursday and yes today is my birthday. It’s the day I’ll be stuffing my face with a glass of wine, chocolates and my favorite foods. Oh wait, that’s everyday…lol. I’ll do it with my special birthday crown…to make it extra special.

My original post for today has been cancelled but I told you I’d be posting everyday this week and by George, I’m a women of my word and I have to keep my commitment. 

So, I had to dig deep and bring you all something, right? and the only thing I could think of was some swatches and nail art designs from March thru May that I still had on my phone. If you follow me on IG and/or FB, you may have already seen these pictures but if not, then you’re in for a real treat.

Buckle in because I have quite a few different looks to show you.

Forget Me Not: Potion Polish

***Nothing To Disclose***

Hello y’all, I’m back today with another installment in the ‘Forget Me Not’ series. This series is dedicated to showcasing my untrieds  in a quick swatch and review. The polishes are all purchased by me but get moved to the back of the line when I am sent press samples. Still they need and deserve a little love, to know they are not forgotten.

Today, I have 3 polishes from Potion Polish. For me in MD this a local brand from VA! Potion Polish is owned, operated and created by Courtney and all Potion Polish uses ingredients that are 5-Free. The life of a nail polish blogger is crazy hectic and I love it so my bad that its taken so long to get these polishes, from Oct/Nov to you.

Shimmering Flats

A pale, pink toned crelly with scattered holo, pink to green shifting chrome flakies and pink holo glitter.

Marvelous Maple

A golden/yellow linear holographic

Pumpkin All Thing

A red-orange linear holographic

Overall Thoughts

Formula/Finish: smooth. No fishing for flakies and the holo flame is much more beautiful in person.

Application: easy to apply

Opaqueness: 2 coat for complete opacity and no VNL

Price: $10-$11

Availability: Current

Overall: Quick shipping and no CS issues to report. I can’t remember the packing, i.e. bubble wrap and/or crinkle paper, but they do come in boxes as shown in cover photo. I thoroughly enjoyed these polishes and will definitely be purchasing more.

What did you think of these polishes? Do you own any Potion Polishes? Let me know in the comments below.

Forget Me Not: Parrot Polish

This past weekend was super busy! Saturday, my family and I welcomed a new addition to the family, our sweet beagle, hound mix, Dallas. He’s 11 weeks of pure cuteness and so far he has fit into our family quite well and we really realized he was what we were missing. But like any mom would tell you, children, 2 or 4 legged, will not/can not stop the show.  Luckily, I had the bulk of Mondays post and this one done, I just had to come and add the finishing touches.

I can’t lie and say these are my first because they are not. My first was Black Magic but ended up destashing because honestly, I didn’t appreciate the beauty that is Parrot Polish. That was then and this is now. Since then, I’ve joined the fan group and have been introduced the David and Sonja’s infamous desk sales. These sales are quick and painless. David does a quick video of polishes he has on his desk, you pm him on FB messenger with your order, you pay and within a the blink of an eye, you have beautiful Parrots to play with.

The 3 I have for you today, literally called my name when I saw them as I happened to be scrolling Facebook one day. Actually, they all did but I was able to show some self control and only get these 3.

 Cassie

Cassie is a beautiful, bright, almost neon pink simmer with scattered holo.

Golden Juicy

Golden Juicy is an orange glitter thermal

1475784493615

 Blue By You 3

Blue By You 3 is an amazingly, vibrant, colbalt blue shimmer.

1475784708493

 

I am so excited for this series, already I’ve been able to swatch/use 8 polishes. That’s 8 beauties that once sat unused and untried, that now have either been swatched on 4 fingers or worn as a full mani.

Overall, I really love these colors. Parrot Polish is quickly growing on my favorites list and I plan to become a stalker of David’s desk sales and the online store. The formulas and application are easy to work with and the colors and finishes are gorgeous.

What Parrots do you own?

Forget Me Not: Different Dimensions

Hello!! So happy to have you back on this Friday morning. Just another 8 hours and I will be saying ‘HELLO’ to my weekend. I love the weekends because I can actually unwind, not think about work and spend quality time with my family…and polish. That’s exactly what I plan to this weekend, go through some of my untried polish pretties and at least swatch them. Having some down time in-between PR S&Rs gives me time to really step back and take a look at my collection and go through them.

I wanted to showcase and journal, so-to-speak, my journey so I decided to start a new series that I’m calling, Forget Me Not, because I want my polish babies to be reminded that they are not forgotten and I will make time for them….lol. Starting this mini series out, is a brand that before recent, I didn’t own any of. I’m talking none, zero, zilch, nada and I literally went from owning none to now having 6 in my collection. I’m talking about, Different Dimensions (DD)! I’m so excited that I now have a small, but powerful and beautiful starting 6! The first was Stargazer which is part of the upcoming AwesomeSauce box, which you can read about here. The other 5, which I have for you today are part collection, part Polish Con, part LE. So you are in for a treat…if I do say so myself.

So without further delay, let’s talk polish! First up I have…

Whatchu Talkin ‘Bout Willis

Whatchu Talkin ‘Bout Willis was the Polish Con LE that a good friend of mine picked up for me. It’s described as a crimson red linear holo with different color flakies.

Lincoln Park, Before Dark

Lincoln Park, Before Dark is a LE still currently available on the DD site. It is described as  a dark plum linear holo with color shifting glitters and ucc flakies.

And All I Loved, I Loved Alone

And All I Loved, I Loved Alone is an orange jelly with holographic microflakies. This one is 1/4 of the POE Collection, still available on the DD site.

1475591322927

…Dream Within A Dream

…Dream Within A Dream is a Halloween full coverage glitterbomb, holographic silver base with added orange and black glitters in different shades and sizes. Again, 1/4 of the POE Collection.

1475588218224

Surfs Up

Surfs Up is a is a white crelly polish with added shimmers, with neon pink, neon yellow and neon blue glitters. 

Overall, I’m ecstatic about these 5 polishes and Stargazer and I am super excited to see what my next DD purchase will include. I love the formula, finish, application and coverage with these polishes. I do recommend that you take heed to the suggestion on the DD site, and apply an extra layer topcoat to smooth out glitters. Other than that, no complaints as I plan to be an a vivid customer. For now, do you have any recommendation for a new DD fan? What are some of your favorites?
