Kinetics Happy New Year Limited Edition Collection 2014

Hello readers!
Today I have a sneek peek at the new Kinetics Fall/Winter '14 collection coming out soon. I've previously reviewed Kinetics Urban Legend (posts can be read here and part 2 here) and had nothing but great things to say about the quality of their polishes. Many were one coaters, applied like butter and dried super shiny. So I'm super excited to see another collection release.

This new collection Kinetics is releasing is called the Happy New Year collection, it is limited edition and features 10 glitter topcoats. I love how bright, playful and eye catching this collection is. I think it completely falls in line with everything associated with New Years. I'm curious to see how opaque these glitter polishes are.

Here is what they had to say about this new collection:

"Kinetics is excited to announce their limited edition 2014 collection, titled Happy New Year. The range comprises bright, colorful effect polishes, perfect for festive fun and frolics. Start with flashes of sleek black and white with Kinetics Splatter It! to achieve an effective splat-accent over your nails. Continue with pure solid gold, destined to be one of this season’s top players. Try All-nighter or Goldy to accompany your most glamourous, going-out attire. For a classic and elegant look, experiment with a combination of sophisticated red and pure white with Kinetics R.S.V.P polish. Elegantly accent with gold elements from Joker Joe and secure your party queen status by rounding off with our new All In and Happy New Year mesmerizing multicolor glitters."

Jamberry Nail Shields Review + Giveaway!!!

Hello friends!

Today I'm excited to tell you that Jamberry nails has recently arrived in Canada and I had the chance to give the nail shields a try. I've tried a variety of nail shields/wraps/decals in the past but I've never come across a brand that offers so many cute designs. Jamberry boasts a wear time of up to 2 weeks on fingers and 4 weeks on toes. I've only had my shield on for one day but I will try to keep it on for as long as possible to test this out.

Jamberry has over 300 designs to choose from. A regular sheet comes with 18 wraps which is good for 2-3 applications (depending on nail length). The regular sheets costs $15USD/$17 CAD and are buy 3 get 1 free. You can even upload your own pictures and design your own shields on their website, though that option costs a bit more. (Pricing is $18.75 USD/ $22.50 CAD per sheet, plus a $6 USD / $7.25 CAD setup fee per order.)

So here is the sample sheet I received from Barb, my local Jamberry consultant. I decided to use the stripes to create a nautical themed mani.
