China Glaze Glitz n Pieces Review and swatches!!

Hello beauties!! Today I have a review and swatches of the new China Glaze Glitz n Pieces collection! This collection was just released and it consists of six shades that each have black horizontal bar glitter, small black glitter, and large black hex glitter mixed with additional single colored glitter. The look results in a 3D effect. I found this collection at a beauty supply store and I was so excited!! These are pretty awesome!

Razzle Me Dazzle Me has light pink small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter. From far the glitter looks silver but it's definitely pink, here is one coat over China Glaze Go Go Pink:

Graffiti Glitter has green small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter pieces. Here is one coat over China Glaze Refresh Mint: 

Mosaic Madness has blue small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter pieces. Here is one coat over China Glaze Electric Beat:

Bling it on has purple small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter pieces. Here is one coat over China Glaze Sweet Hook:

Next is Glitz N Pieces which has silver small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter pieces. I found that this shade had larger pieces of hex glitter than the rest. Here is one coat over Zoya Purity:
And last but not least, here is Scattered and Tattered which is an orange almost coral colored small and hex glitter mixed with the black glitter. Here is one coat over China Glaze Peachy Keen:
I really like these glitters!! They are easy to apply and they apply nicely with plenty of glitter with just one coat! They do have a cool 3D effect. I loved wearing them and I look forward to wearing them more!! Here's my NOTD!!

I haven't seen these on sale yet at Sally's but I'm sure they will get them soon. What do you all think of these? Thanks for reading!! To share is to care!! :o)

Nails Inc. Leather, Crystals and skulls set featuring NOHO

Hey loves! Today I have a review of the new and exciting Nails Inc. Leather, Crystals, and Skulls set featuring the awesome leather effect nail polish in NOHO. So, I am a consultant at Sephora and we received this awesome set about a week ago. One of my directors sent me home with a set so I can play with it and train the other consultants on how to use the leather and crystals set. This is what the set looks like:
This set includes a black leather effect nail polish in NOHO, nail glue, two orange sticks, and little crystals and skulls to put on your nails.
First and foremost, the nail polish is so awesome!! I wore two coats over a regular basecoat. No topcoat because that would change the texture of the polish. The result is an awesome matte textured finished that resembles old leather.

Ok so not only does this look amazing, but the formula is great too! NOHO dries quickly and I wore this for 3 whole days before it even chipped! That's awesome because I'm lucky if I get one day without chipping on a matte nail polish.
So then I added some of the crystals in this set. I wasn't allowed to use all of them because I have to use this set to show others at my store or else I would have blinged out all of my nails!

The only bummer was that my nails were actually too narrow for the skull crystals that came with the kit. They were sticking out a lot and I kept getting it snagged in my hair so I took it off and just used the regular crystals. They were really easy to glue on, and they stay on until you soak them off! They come off easily, just soak the nail in polish remover for a minute and done! All in all this kit is amazing! I love it and I love the leather effect nail polish! Very cool!! This kit sells at Sephora for $25. What do you all think of this trend?
