Model City Holiday Collection review and swatches!

Hi everyone!

Whew it’s been a while since I have had a post for you all :(. I miss blogging so much!!!

Anyway, today I have a special post for you, Nina of Model City Polish asked me if I would like to review some of her Holiday collection! I was so excited because #1 nobody has asked ME to review anything and #2 I have been dying to try her polishes!! And I was not disappointed!! Let me just show you the swatches!!

O Christmas Tree is packed full of green shred, holo gold stars, holo blue, gold, red and silver hexes and silver bar glitters in a clear base. It’s like a chopped up Christmas tree in a bottle lol.

Swatch shows one coat over a no name silver polish. 1 coat of Gelous to top it off.

Application was perfect. The brush was fully loaded and I didn’t have to fish for the stars!

Application for this one was perfect.

Say NO to Bullying!

Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.

Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.

As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color...even to our polish application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people's view of "normal" dictate how I behave, believe, and blog.

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.


For my No H8 mani I used China Glaze LOL and a polish we made for our daughter’s that will be releasing soon !
