Creations By Lynda LE review

Hello and Welcome!!!
Today I have a Limited Edition polish made by Creations By Lynda and I also have a beautiful mint crelly polish to share with all of you.
The Limited Edition polish will be released August 1st . The mint crelly polish has already been released and is currently in her shop .
The polish I am reviewing is polish I have purchased myself. They were not given to for reviewing purposes.
Lets take a look shall we.....
As you can see the polish on the left is called Mint Orchid then on the left is the
 Limited Edition Lemon Drop
This is Lemon Drop
It is a neon crelly but it also has a jelly consistency. In the formula is also micro shape shifting glitter for added shimmer
I applied 3 coats with no undies but if you prefer the jelly look you can just apply 2 coats.
I also applied a top coat
I think this polish is a perfect color for the summer. I think Neons are best and really make your nails pop on those hot summer days. I want a neon pink one too but I will have to talk to Lynda and see what she thinks.
I absolutely love Lemon Drop with this nail art. 
I used a stamp from the Cheeky Princess Charming jumbo plate and used Black Konad stamping polish with HK Girl top coat
Reminder: This color will only be available August 1st and is Limited Edition

This is called Mint Orchid
This polish is from the Flower Fantasy Collection
It is a mint crelly with a mixture of square and hex glitters .The colors of glitter in this formula are Mint Green, Teal and light Green
I applied 3 thin coats with no undies and a top coat for added shine
For this polish you need to really shake or roll it good to get the larger glitter on the brush. 
I cant seem to get enough of polish with mint glitter or just the mint color all together.
I think mint polish is in high demand right now. I think its a color that never gets old. Well thats my opinion anyway.
I added some nail art over Mint Orchid. I used a stamp off of the Musical Nails Cheeky plate with Blue Konad stamping polish with HK Girl top coat over it.

I hope you all have enjoyed todays review. Dont forget if you loved Lemon Drop, look for it to be on sale August 1st. It is Limited Edition.

Honey Buttons Custom Polish Review

Hello everyone & Welcome!
Today I have something special for you. I have 3 custom made polishes from a company called Honey Buttons.
I reached out to Jessica which is the creator and owner of Honey Buttons and I asked if she could make me 3 polishes. She was so sweet and  said yes.
The 3 ideas I came up with that I wanted my polish based on was.. Rainbow Bright, Ariel from the Little Mermaid and Ursula also from the Little Mermaid.
All I did was tell her what I wanted the polish to look like and what kind of glitter I wanted added and she made it for me.
At the moment she does not have a shop BUT If you want to order polish from her or want one custom made just shoot her an email or message her on her Facebook page. 
I will post the links to her page ect at the end of this review. I purchased my polish for $5 each but prices could go up soon.
Not only did I purchase the 3 custom made polishes from her but I also purchased 5 more polishes from her as well. Those colors will be posted soon.
Lets take a look at the beautiful polish I had custom made for myself.
You will notice immediately how awesome the labels look.
From Left to right I have Rainbow Bright, Ursula and Ariel 
This is my Rainbow Bright polish
It is a Blurple cream base crelly color (Blue/Purple)
It has tiny hex assorted colors( Colors Of The Rainbow if you will) scattered around in the formula. It also has gold stars and silver circular glitter.
The Rainbow colored glitter represents her colorful outfit. The gold stars represent the star on Rainbow Brights Horse's head.
I applied 2 coats of Rainbow bright and used HK Girl top coat for added shine.

This is my Ariel polish
It is a vibrant red jelly based polish with green and silver hexes and teal squares
Of course I had the polish made red to match Ariel's hair and the green and silver hexes are for her her tail.
I applied 2 coats with no undies and HK Girl top coat. I will add that top coat is not needed. This polish shines on its own.

This is my Ursula polish
It is a purple jelly base with silver hexes and circular glitter
The polish is a beautiful purple and reminds me of all the colors that surround Ursula 
I applied 2 coats. To get more of an opaque look you will need 3 coats. It is so shiny on its own but I still added top coat so it wont chip

My overall opinion of this polish is very positive, I loved how the polish was easy to apply with no clumpy mess. I would defiantly purchase from Honey Buttons again. Her polish is amazing. I really enjoyed creating new polish with her she was very sweet and patient with me. I think I changed my mind a ton and added things to the polish ect. LOL
I hope you enjoy her polish like I do.

Dr. MarVey Nail Treatments Review

I have something to share with all of you. Its a new line of nail care that has just been released in stores.
It is new Nail treatments by Dr. Marvey.
Who is Dr. Marvey you ask?
Dr. Marvey is a selected panel of qualified nail experts. health. skin and beauty prfessionals, style and trend insiders working together to bring you the secrets to marvelous nails.
I was introduced to this line by Tweets Nail Color. I had done a couple reviews from them in the past and they asked that I try out the new line of Dr. Marvey nail treatments before they were released in stores.  
I know you have never heard of Dr. Marvey products so let me fill you in on some facts.
Dr Marvey products are made with plant based ingredients, are vitamin enriched and contain no toxic chemicals, no formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Camphor and are Gluten free
They are perfectly safe to use and this is what we all are looking for. We need safe products to use on our nails and Dr. Marvey nail treatments are just that.
Lets take a look at the product, Shall we?
I was sent 5 different nail treatments which are all color coded into 5 categories.
I tried out all the products for about 3 weeks.
As of right now you can only find Dr. Marvey products at selected stores like Harmon and Zitomer stores. They did metion that they are trying to get Dr. Marvey's products in other stores around the country. So hopefully that happens soon.
This is called Rescue Me
What this does is restores severe damage from artificial nail or gel nail color.
What you need to do first is Apply 2 coats of #1 which is (Nail Grow). It does take a while to dry which I felt was a pain because I am very impatient. 
Next you need to apply 2 thin coats of #2 (Nail It) Again it takes a bit to dry so I recommend applying this product when you have a few hours to spare.
Lastly apply #3 (Nail CPR) around your cuticles and nail bed. It's a gel and does smell amazing. I enjoy using Nail CPR and this is to be used daily. I would actually love to have a full size bottle of this stuff.
I do actually have them out of order in the photo and I do apologize for that, lol.
This is called Shine On
It is a 10 day wear chip proof top coat
I really like this. I did notice it made my nails really shiny and glossy. Note:It does take a while to dry. It is not a fast drying top coat. It has UV absorbers to prevent fading and yellowing. All you need to do to apply is use 1 coat and your done. Your nails will be noticeably shinny.
This is a 15ml bottle
  This is Cuticles Away
What this does is soften, dissolves and removes overgrown cuticles painlessly in a short 16 seconds. It has rich botanicles of kewi, grape extract, jojoba oil and aloe. Very natural ingredients, which is always a plus. all you have to do is apply a small amount to your cuticle area and push your cuticles back using an orange stick. I use the orange sticks. They seem to work best for me at the moment. I use a cotton ball to remove the excess product. The wash your hands. I forgot to mention that this has a very pleasant smell. It smells like fruit. Very fresh smelling.
This is called Nail Cure
This 6-in-1 ultimate nail treatment reduces peeling and breaking.
The finish is a soft pink. It also has UV protection
When I used this it took a while to dry but I came to the conclusion that its worth the wait. Its a all natural product and that is really rare to fine in nail care.
Use 2 coats and let it dry.
You could also use this as a base coat and apply your favorite color over it or wear it as is.
This is called Nail Armor
This is a professional strength, clinically tested remedy for thin, weak nails.
you can use this as a base coat or use it as a stand alone treatment.
All you need is to apply 2 coats and your done. Just wait for it to do its thing and harden your nails. It is supposed to get your nails up to 60% harder instantly .

I have came to the conclusion that you really cant get any better than products that are made with plant based ingredients. Its very healthy and is not hard on our nails. I really like the Dr. Marvey Nail Care line. Beside waiting for the polish to dry, I found the products to live up to what they say they do. I did notice that the caps on the polish never went on straight. I tried to see if I could pull the cap off to straighten them out but It just didn't happen. There is some square caps that do pull off so they can be straightened out but not these. I could be wrong . I might just be to weak lol.

It is such a stunning color. I had no issues with this formula. It was so easy to use.
Im in love with it.
I think I found a new obsession!!
