Color Club Cloud Nine Review and Photos

Color Club Cloud Nine

I almost didn’t buy Color Club Cloud Nine, a cruelty free and vegan nail polish. That’s because a while back I read some posts about how the bloggers were waiting until the sun came out to take the photos. I thought, well, good grief, how am I going to get better photos than a nail blogger?! Then, I decided, I had to try Color Club, and if I couldn’t get good photos, I would just enjoy the polish, and not post to my blog.

Color Club Cloud Nine

The Color Club Cloud Nine is a totally gorgeous linear holographic hue. Now, while Color Club writes that it is a pink shade, I think it also appears purple in many of my photos (and in real life). I don’t think you need to be a nail blogger to appreciate this one, and while holographic polishes may look their best photographed under sunlight, I found myself starting at my nails all week, under all different lighting conditions.

Color Club Cloud Nine

For the photos, I easily applied two coats of polish. If I only applied one coat, it would have been almost opaque. I was going to add nail art, and then I decided I really didn’t want to this time. I purchased other colors from Color Club, and maybe I’ll do nail art with the other shades.

This is Color Club Cloud Nine with the sun directly overhead.

Void Beauty Hissy Fit Photos & Review

Void Beauty Hissy Fit

Void Beauty Hissy Fit is a certified cruelty free, vegan, 5-free nail polish brand, and shade, that I received. I love their motto, “Beauty doesn’t have to be toxic.” Void Beauty is eco-friendly, and is USA based.

We all want our beauty products void of the things that, as the company writes, “aren’t so good for us,” so Void Beauty is free of the harmful chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. In addition, Void Beauty also does not have the toxic ingredients of Lead, Parabens, Xylene, and Ethyl Tosylamide.

Void Beauty also made sure to be certified cruelty free from Leaping Bunny and PETA.

They offer customers a wide variety of nail polish shades in a 0.5 fl oz-15 ml, beautiful, glass bottle. They let you know that now, “All you have to do is pick the hues to suit your mood.”

I took lots of photos of the Void Beauty Hissy Fit shade, an incredibly beautiful hue of hot pink, no matter what level of lighting. I have two coats of polish, and a top coat, to being out the shine, on all my nails.

Void Beauty Hissy Fit Pros and Cons

Although I absolutely love that Void Beauty is free of so many harmful chemicals, I do wish that there was something–the nail polish bottle, or the website, that had a list of ingredients used in the polish. There is no nail polish box, but there was a little plastic bag around the bottle, and it was very nicely packed, and shipped from Amazon. If you don’t like to place online orders, they also have a stockist list on their website.  For the current price, and other information about the polish that is void of many of the awful chemicals that may be in your current nail polish, check the Void Beauty website.

Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont

Adesse New York Vivian Beaumont Nail Lacquer is excellent quality. The color, Vivian, is sparkling and vibrant, and whether I take a photo in direct, or indirect light, it is gorgeous. Adesse New York polish was very easy to work with. It applied with no problems, dried quickly, and was very glossy. I have two coats on all nails, but it was almost opaque with one coat. The other shade that I was provided, Iced Tangerine, I used on my ring finger. More about that gorgeous glitter nail polish in next week’s post.

I did apply a top coat so I could judge how long I could wear it without any chips. I found that I had a full four days, using my hands for everything from gardening to doing dishes, without any issues!

I highly recommend Adesse New York Nail Lacquer, and if you’re at all worried about ordering from a website, just know that Adesse New York has a great policy that if you don’t love the shade you purchased, you can return it for a different one! That should help anyone who is at all concerned about buying from their website.

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 Review

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210

Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is a beautiful pink shade that I received and is described as being, “As bright and playful as the Corvette parked outside Barbie’s Malibu Dream House,” on the Lauren B. Beauty website. I was thinking of doing nail art with a Barbie theme, but I didn’t want to downplay just how lovely this hue, which has flattering blue undertones, really is. All ages will love Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Lauren B. Beauty polish is not only cruelty free it’s also vegan!

Lauren B. Beauty polish is also five-free. That means that it does not have the horrible chemicals of formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In addition, it’s non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

With the exception of one of my fingers, I applied two coats of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210. Can you even tell which finger has only one coat of polish? I used the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat on all my fingers. That, of course, also applies like a charm, and dries quickly.

With Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210, I thought the shade looked glamorous no matter if I applied one or two coats. The polish applies so smoothly that you do not have add a second coat. There is no streaking.

The photo below of Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 was taken at noon, on a beautiful, sunny day. I think that this is the only photo, that you can actually see that it’s my middle finger that has only one coat of polish. See how glorious the Lauren B. Beauty Clueless in 90210 is?! All of the Lauren B. Beauty polishes that I have received have that same amazing formulation that makes it easy for anyone, even if you’re not a nail blogger, to paint your nails and have them look beautiful. No tricks, no special lighting, no extra effort required.

On my ring finger I applied the Lauren B. Beauty shade Greystone grey, and I placed a pink rhinestone above the pink lips. I actually had to look up the name for it; it’s called a “medusa piercing.” You may not know it, but my children are proud their ‘ole Mom is so hip!

I can confidently write that I cannot imagine what you would not love about Lauren B. Beauty 90210. You don’t like that hue, then check out the Lauren B. Beauty website and choose a different shade!

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues Review

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

This week’s Manicure Monday is the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues, a shade that was sent to me. I previously reviewed another of Lauren B.’s shade My Private Cabana  Just a reminder that Lauren B. Beauty is a cruelty free, vegan company. The owner is Lauren B., who has always loved nail polish.  Lauren B. started her own brand of nail polish, Lauren B. Beauty, that does not have the chemicals included in a lot of polishes: formaldehyde, DBP, and toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. Hence, Lauren B. Beauty is a five-free nail polish. In addition, Lauren B. Beauty polish is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and made in the USA.

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues is an iridescent midnight navy blue shade that looks fabulous no matter the lighting conditions!

The photo below still shows the awesome shine, despite there being no sun out on that day. In fact, it was one of the few days I was able to be outside without getting deluged with rain.

 Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

 

All the photos show two coats of Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues, but no top coat, except on my ring finger. I did that due to the nail art, where I used My Private Cabana (last week’s shade), and then the Lauren B. Beauty Gel Like Top Coat.

Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues

I love the brush; it contains twice the amount of bristles that are common on typical polishes, and each of the bristles are pre-lacquered.  The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues glided on incredibly smoothly. I think it’s great that the bottle has a special over-cap, so I could use either a square handle or a cylindrical handle, for more control.

I did not need two coats of polish. In fact, when I asked my family if they could tell which one finger I had just one coat of polish on, they could not tell the difference!  So, after the photos, I added a second coat, and a top coat to all the nails, to check out the wear, and test how long I could go before I noticed any chipping.

Here is my assessment of the the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues polish. I’m a busy mom, wife, and I’m owned by two big dogs. The Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues is very glossy, even without a top coat. My nails dried very quickly, and if you are rushed, this shade does not need a second coat of polish.  I have had only two minor chips, and I think that’s because I’m at my computer typing away a lot of the day–never mind all the dishes, etc. that I do. I am planning on asking if Lauren B. herself can tell us about the formula of her polish. There is something very different (special) about the thickness, and the durability of it. I’ll get back to you when I have a response.

The Lauren B. Beauty looks great in the direct sunlight, and as in the photo below, in my house, working on this post late at night! Without any hesitation, I highly recommend the Lauren B. Beauty House of Blues shade!
