Night Owl Lacquer – Love Trio & Group Custom

Press Sample

Man this week is just flying by. Between work and kids practices I am beat. But last night….I also had to grocery shop AFTER softball practice which ended at 9pm. I was up at 6:30am, so I was beyond tired. We were down to oatmeal packets and white rice..haha We had some boxes of mac and cheese but NO milk so that was a no go. So we had dinner at Wendy’s before going to practice. Instead of a polish no buy, as a family we should really try to go on a fast food no buy. We go in spurts though. Sometimes we don’t go for months then its like we cram it all into a weekend and go crazy. Lmao Anyways I have been promising a blog post for what feels like forever now. So here it is…finally! Lindsay sent me and a few other girls some gorgeous polishes! The Love Trio released last Friday, just in time for Valentines Day. But not only did that release, Lindsay made a group custom for Night Owl Lacquers Facebook group! I’ll make sure to add the link for that to join at the bottom per usual! All 4 polishes are gorgeous, but I have begun to expect nothing less from Lindsay. You can tell that she puts so much time and love into each and every one of her products. Let us go ahead and start off with the Love Trio first shall we…

Unicorn Love  is described as a deep purple jelly with blue, pink & violet holo shreds. In full disclosure..I do not like jellies. I don’t know why but they just don’t make me drool like so many other finishes do. Now with that being said, I want you all to know that Lindsay has magic powers because she has made me love a jelly repeatedly. This has to be my favorite one though. I was so unsure about it in the bottle but I will never again question Lindsay’s polish making powers! Unicorn Love was so easy to apply. I did do 3 coats but I felt this one shouldn’t be completely opaque. Not sure if that made sense but yeah. I love how much depth this polish holds.. this trio actually. But if you want this purple beauty, click here.

Love is described as a bright red jelly packed with silver holo shreds. Now I was NOT expecting this one to be as bright as it was. I love how the silver shreds reflect off the jelly base. It really makes for a cool effect! I did 3 coats for it to be just about opaque. I also let it flood my cuticles and it left absolutely no staining and was so easy to clean up! The formula was great and very easy to work with. It didn’t really have a jelly feel to it but it is definitely a jelly. For this one, click here.

Love Hate is described as a black jelly with red holo micro glitters, red holo shreds and silver flecks. I love how this polish looks. The name made me laugh because I know that there are so many love hate relationships out there. I feel this polish captured that. A dark side for hate and a light sparkly side for love. Lindsay is very consistent with formulas. I swear all three are about the same consistency. I love that this one and the other two are easy to build up and make opaque. I did 3 coats for this one as well. extremely easy to work with and very easy clean up! You can find it here.

And now let us talk about the “Night Owls Just Wanna Get Lacquered” Facebook Group custom! The Fire Within is described as a medium grey creme with bright red shimmer, red holo shreds and silver flecks. This one is soooooooo creamy! It could have been opaque easily with one big fat thick coat! I really feel all those different red finishes show “The Fire Within” the polish. Lmao. I did do 2 coats but like I said one thick one would have sufficed. Great formula, no pooling, and leveled out very nicely (as did the trio but I think I forgot to mention that). To get this polish, you do have to be apart of the Facebook Group, so head on over there and say hi! We don’t bite. Well not all of us. Haha The group is run by Jenalyn (@velashaa) And Lindsay ( The Maker of NOL). There are random giveaways, sneak peeks, and more. So come join in on all the fun!

So what do you guys think of the trio and custom? Aren’t they just gorgeous! And if you still aren’t convinced you need these in your life, maybe Jenalyn can help convince you over on her blog! Her swatches turned out amazing! The link for her blog is here. I am almost positive you guys can tell just how much I love these polishes and how much I adore Lindsay. She is so easy to work with and just makes great products time and time again. If I didn’t swatch for her I am pretty sure I would be handing her my pay check every new release! For each of the trio I did link them to their individual listings in Lindsay’s shop but they are also available as a set which you can purchase here. Oh I almost forgot! Lindsay has given me a code to share with my readers and followers! Use KKNA10 for 10% off any order! Below are all the links to get and stayed connected! <3

Nailed It Nail Polish – Conversation Hearts Collection & Discount Code

Press Sample

Look at that! Two post in one day! Who would have thunk it! I honestly have no choice because I am so back logged. It happens. I have to say though, today i am extremely more excited than I have been in a few weeks! Today my daughter is trying out for softball! I have no doubt that she will make a team, especially because some of the coaches last season were like vultures last season! Who wouldn’t want a lefty first baseman pitcher…haha Anyways lets talk about Tia from Nailed It Nail Polish. She is constantly making good product! Not only am I absolutely head over heels in love with her Bye Girl Barrier, but I love her whipped body butter! It’s amazing for between swatches and just in general! But let us talk about this newest collection that she sent me to review! Dear sweet baby jesus it is just amazing! So the Conversation Hearts Collection consist of 4 holographic polishes. So let’s get this party started! Trust me, you need them all!!

<3

Me & You is silver holo with hints of gold. It is truly a cool polish. And boy did it apply perfectly. Took about 2 coats to be completely opaque and it did dry a bit textured, but very little. Nothing some glossy top coat couldn’t fix! Dried fairly quickly as well! I honestly wasn’t expecting this polish to be as smooth applying as it was, so I was really pleased with that. This polish is available in the shop now for $8.50

  

Matte yumminess

 

XOXO is this red leaning dark pink holo. This is such a fun and unique polish! It was completely opaque in 2 coats and dried semi textured. One coat of glossy top coat so it’s not a really thirsty polish! Yay. lmao. Great formula and no staining at all! I did wear a base coat of course. While I am swatching though I have been using Bye Girl Barrier for easy and quick removal! Haha I already bought 2 extra bottles! This polish available in the shop for $8.50

  

Matte!

 

Let’s Kiss is a soft delicate pink holo. I think its my favorite of the four but don’t mark my words. All four are pretty fantastic. Formula is pretty consistent in all four too. I feel with a thicker first coat that a second coat wouldn’t even be necessary. They are pretty pigmented polishes so coverage is amazing. But for the sake of being a creature of habit. I did two coats for each polish. And then a top coat and then of course a matte top coat. This one really makes me think of those conversation heart candies! And XOXO makes me think of the writing on them! Let’s Kiss is available with the other 3 in Tia’s shop for $8.50

This one is definitely my favorite matte!

Be Mine is a purple holo. I feel its more of a darker lilac color. Like it’s not dark purple but it’s not light purple, it is somewhere in between. haha I did do live swatch videos of each polish and that is posted on IG so make sure to check that out, if you are wondering how they apply. This is available in the shop for $8.50

  

Matte all things!

  

Well that wraps the swatching up! But I have some great news! The first 10 collection sets sold will get a FREE full size bottle of Bye Girl Barrier! How awesome is that. Trust me, once you try it. You will be back for more! But that’s not all! For my followers Tia has given me a discount code! If you use killakay15 you get 15% off your order!

About Moi

Hey there lovies,

My name is Kaylyna but I am better known in the nail community as @killakays_nailadventure. I have wanted to start a blog for some time now and I have FINALLY decided to just do it! I enjoy writing and speaking, oh and giving my opinions whether they are wanted or not, so why not on a blog! I thought to start off with I would tell you guys a little about myself.

20150221_143227[1] IMG_20151004_201724[1] IMG_20150817_081950[1]

I am 26 years young and have two children (they are monsters, do NOT be fooled by their cute faces). My kids are everything to me. My son Daniel is 10 and is a baseball fanatic while my 8-year-old daughter Isabella is a polish addict! Just like me. Then I also have Oscar. He is my significant other, my other half, my hubby without the signed papers. Haha. We feel that we have been together so long and are older that its starting to feel immature saying boyfriend and girlfriend. LOL

As for work, I am a vampire. Yes I play with needles and blood all day! And absolutely love it! I have a natural gift for it I guess. BUT I will be damned if someone tries to get blood from me. I am a BIG cry baby. But I am also a hard stick so it is never fun. =(

Anyways, I am sure you are wondering how I got started with nail polish and nail art. It is truly very simple, I am cheap. One I have ALWAYS loved nail polish, but more recently (about a year now) found out about indies. Secondly, when I use to get my nails done at a nail place, their designs were basic and a little to much money fo basic SO I googled tutorials and started doing my own nails. I use to wear acrylics ALL the time but have not worn any since January of 2016 I believe and I couldnt be happier. My natural nails would break so often that I would get discouraged and just want to get acrylics again. Boy am I glad I stuck with it. I learned cuticle care and what cuticle oil was and my nails have never been healthier!

I will soon hopefully post about my favorite cuticle oils! I am also a former nail biter!!!!! I knoooow its gross. But I have anxiety and the nails would suffer because of it. I hope to post often but sometimes life gets in the way, especially with kids. So I hope you enjoy my blog enough to stick around!

Until we meet again xoxo
