Il Etait Un Vernis – Licence to Polish

I’ve got some beautiful polishes to show you today all the way from France! Bérangère and Stéphanie are the co-founders and creators of a nail polish brand called Il Etait Un Vernis.

One of the main awesome things about these polishes are that they are 5-free and vegan. Yay! I’ve been more apt to wear polishes that are at least 3-free or more because I was pregnant last year and I wanted to be careful of what polishes I wore, though I didn’t leave the polishes on my nails for very long.

This new collection from Il Etait Un Vernis is called Licence to Polish, an elegant and non-traditional winter collection. The subtle holographic effect has so much life to it. Absolutely beautiful! I think what also made me love this polish is the fact that the formula was amazing! I had no trouble whatsoever and it was so easy to apply.

Zoya Tickled Collection

Daisy and I decided to each take on the Zoya Summer 2014 collections. She swatched Bubbly (which is gorgeous by the way!), and I swatched Tickled. Which I’m pretty stoked to show here. The colors are so much fun for summer.

Overall, the polishes were quite opaque but most of them had a thicker formula that took some getting used to. I was excited to try out Zoya polishes since they are free of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene and Camphor.

You can purchase either collection from Zoya, and they retail at $9 each.

Deborah Lippmann – Starlight Collection 2013

Get ready for some gorgeous holiday glitter! Deborah Lippmann’s Starlight Collection with names that were inspired by the beauty of outer space.

I’m a total fan of Deborah Lippmann polishes and glitter. So when I saw this mini holiday collection, I had to get it. There are six mini polishes that are 8mL each. The entire set sells for $49 on DeborahLippmann.com. So it’s a great deal if you want to get more variety versus buying a full sized individual polish.

The colors were laid out in this order: Twilight Tone (black glitter), Blinded by the Light (silver glitter), Cosmic Love (pink/purple glitter), Fantastic Voyage (blue glitter), Champagne Supernova (champagne pink glitter), and Lost in Space (midnight blue glitter).
