NOTD: Morgan Taylor Rocketman Professional Nail Lacquer Collection in Tickle My Keys

Two coats of Morgan Taylor Rocketman Professional Nail Lacquer Collection in Tickle My Keys. Barbie Pink Creme.

Y'all, this shade right here is what Barbie dreams are made of!

Tickle My Keys is a gorgeous bright pink with subtle lavender undertones that enhance the Barbie girl feels! The formula here is flawless - two simple swipes and you are good. to. go. This one does dry down to a semi-matte finish; so if you prefer a glossy mani, def add top coat {like I did here} for shine.

NOTD: OPI Scotland Infinite Shine Collection in Good Girls Gone Plaid

Two coats of OPI's Scotland Infinite Shine Collection in Good Girls Gone Plaid. Alluring Amethyst Creme.

Good girls gone plaid...I make them good girls go, good girls go plaid... Sorry babes, I was listening to Cobra Starship's Good Girls Go Bad yesterday and had to sing the name of this polish to the tune of that track. #sorrynotsorry

Good Girls Gone Plaid though billed as an alluring amethyst reads more black than purple; but that is fine with me because I'm feeling vampy shades rn. Formula here is brilliant! One swipe gets you good coverage, two scares vnl away. Bonus: chip free for 5+ days. Natch! This bad boy comes highly recommended!

NOTD: Morgan Taylor Rocketman Professional Nail Lacquer Collection in Sir Teal To You

Two coats of Morgan Taylor Rocketman Professional Nail Lacquer Collection in Sir Teal To You. Teal Shimmer.

How fun is this shade for September?!

Sir Teal To You is a bright yet muted color that feels fresh for fall yet maintains an effervescence that works for summa-summa-summatime. The so-called shimmer in this bad boy is barely visible; however, the hue itself is so pretty that it's no big. Highly recomend this beauty if you're looking for a color that's a bit off the beaten path.

Morgan Taylor Rocketman Nail Laquer Mini 4 Pack Swatches + Review

Did I see the movie Rocketman? No; but I could not resist picking up the inspired-by Morgan Taylor Rocketman Nail Laquer Mini 4 Pack! Y'all, this is an online only Ulta exclusive, and I cannot rave about it more. Peep all of the prettiness below!

Bedazzle Me is a Silver, Teal, and Pink Microglitter in a Clear Base. Le sigh...I am so loving how smoky yet sparkly this bad boy is - it gives it a hint of edginess. Bedazzle Me is a glamorous hue that can be layered over a bold shade as a top coat, or worn on its own {as I have here}. The formula is v simple to work with, and builds fast. My only qualm: I don't love the hexagonal glitter. I definitely would have preferred the microglitter on its own; but I'm still a fan. Necessary if you dig sparkle. This is 3 coats.


It's the Shades is a Hot Pink Matte. Anotha one! Soooo...I thought that I was done with pink for a few months; but here we are and I ain't mad about it. It's the Shades is a gorgeous hot pink hue that, surprisingly, dries matte. Does it look matte here? No, because I added top coat, which makes this color so. much. better. This is a borderline neon shade that is stunning for those last days of summer, yet seamlessly transitions for those first days of fall. Formula is amazing. It's quick-dry, and builds beautifully; but...there are some chipping issues. Not a deal-breaker, but worth mentioning. This is 2 coats.


Tickle My Keys is a Barbie Pink Creme. Y'all, this shade right here is what Barbie dreams are made of! Tickle My Keys is a gorgeous bright pink with subtle lavender undertones that enhance the Barbie girl feels! The formula here is flawless - two simple swipes and you are good. to. go.

Two coats of OPI Tokyo Nail Lacquer Collection in Rice Rice Baby. Mauve Pink Creme.

Sooooo... typically I reach for mauve shades during the chilly fall, sweater weather months; but I'm actually liking this one as a break between brights for summer.

Rice Rice Baby is a muted mauve pink that seamlessly falls into the neutral, your-nails-but-better category. It's feminine and playful; yet ultra sophisticated with a touch of sass. The formula is absolutely brilliant - smooth and sumptuous, with the ability to be a OCW if you apply with a heavier hand. Highly recommend!

NOTD: China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners in Lemon Fizz

Three coats of China Glaze Nail Lacquer with Hardeners in Lemon Fizz. Pale Yellow Creme.

Y'all know I've been feeling yellow for the past few months, so adding this beauty to cart was 100% a no brainer.

Lemon Fizz is a fresh, effervescent shade for spring through summer. It has that elusive pastel-meets-bright feel that is, IMO, simply irresistible. Formula was a breeze to work with. It is fairly self-leveling; however, you do need a trio of coats for complete opacity. Application tip: wipe the brush on the lip of the bottle a few times to avoid pooling in cuticles. Trust.

Two coats of Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Sunkissed. Bright Orange Creme.

Y'all know that orange isn't my typical color craving; but I saw this pretty and picked it up on impulse because I need more orange in my life.

Sunkissed is the quintessential final days of summer shade - being bright and sultry enough for July through August; while crisp enough for those first days of fall. Formula here was fantastic! It applies evenly with minimal fuss, and reaches perfect opacity in jut two swipes. Definitely a new fave in my polish wardrobe!

Bubble Gum looks exactly the way it sounds...like yummy, pop princess-esque bubble gum! Formula here was fab! Not too thin, not too think; it applies seamlessly and leaves behind a scrummy, high-shine finish. Love this one for tips and toes!

Two coats of China Glaze Body & Sol Summer Nail Lacquer Collection in Glow-Worthy. Caramel Gold with Silver and Gold Holographic Glitter.

Le sigh...I'm not typically one for gold or metallics, but this bad boy is bringing all of the summer feels.

Glow-Worthy is a brilliant shade for those summer months. Though different than the usual brights we see when the weather warms up; the silver holo throughout creates a sand-inspired look that is TDF! Formula here was fabulous! You can easily get away with one coat, but two really ups the dimension. Love this one!

Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color Duo Pack in Bunny and Sunny

A few weeks back I showed you the Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color Duo Pack in Hoppily Ever After, and today, as promised, I'm coming at ya with the Bunny and Sunny duo!

Buttered Popcorn is a Milky Yellow Crelly w/ Gold Glitter. OMG babes this shade is TDF! Buttered Popcorn is such a fun neutral shade w flare that feels so fresh for spring! At one coat you can use it as a confetti-like topper over another base shade; but at three coats you get this glam opacity! The formula here is good - drying fast between layers so application doesn't feel gloppy; while the combo of pale yellow + glittering gold perfectly captures the look of yummy, scrummy, buttery popcorn! This is 3 coats.


Bubble Gum is a Neon Barbie Pink Creme. I'm a Barbie girl, in my Barbie world...

Y'all know that I've never met a white polish that I didn't like; so obvs I had to pick this bad boy up from the Moschino x Sephora collab.

Simply titled White this is a heavenly hue that captured my heart in 0.2 seconds. The formula is a sliiiight mix of runny and thick; but it's super simple to work with, and levels beautifully on. its. own. Positively obsessed - and that white out inspired packaging is the cutest thing ever!

Y'all I love a bright blue for summer, so Berry Blue caught my attention like whoa! This bad boy is a glorious bright that would look amaze on tips or toes. My one complaint? I find that Sally Hansen brushes are an absolute pain to work with. They absorb too much polish, which then drips and causes a huge mess. That said...Berry Blue was a OCW, so as long as you remember to wipe the brush excessively on the lip of the bottle before application you're golden!

You're Such A Budapest is a beautiful periwinkle hue that is a total lemming in my personal collection {which makes it a new fave}. Though the formula is seamless to work for, building beautifully; the one downside is the amount of coats necessary for opacity. Yes, I needed 4 coats to reach this level of pretty, which was a pain, but, ultimately, worth it!

Sally Hansen Insta Dri x Jelly Belly Nail Color Duo Pack in Hoppily Ever After

I haven't purchased Sally Hansen polish in what feels like forever; but I absolutely could not resist their collab with Jelly Belly for Easter! The colors are so fresh + fun for spring; while perfectly capturing the playful vibes of Jelly Belly jellybeans! Today I'm sharing the Hoppily Ever After duo; but I'll be bringing the Bunny and Sunny duo over the next few weeks. Ready to spring forward into the swatches?

Tutti-Fruitti is a Milky Pink Crelly with Rainbow-Colored Glitter. If you want to bring a whole lotta fun to your fingernails you cannot go wrong with this cutie! Tutti-Fruitti is an explosion of color in the form of a sparkle fest! The base is a milky pale pink that builds with multiple coats, or is virtually transparent if you use only a single coat {if you're layering it over another shade}; while the multi-sized glitter is a pure party! Formula is flawless - the glitter disperses perfectly on its own without requiring a pick + choose method; while the subdued base shade really allows the sparkle to stand front and center. Loving this one! This is 3 coats.


Berry Blue is a Bright Blue Creme Creme. Y'all I love a bright blue for summer, so Berry Blue caught my attention like whoa! This bad boy is a glorious bright that would look amaze on tips or toes. My one complaint? I find that Sally Hansen brushes are an absolute pain to work with. They absorb too much polish, which then drips and causes a huge mess.

Formula here, as with all of the Tokyo shades, is flawless. I wanted a more plush look, if you will, so I went for two coats; but you could easily get away with just one. Huzzah!

OPI Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection Mini Nail Lacquer Set Swatches + Review

Okay babes, a few weeks ago I shared the OPI Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection Mini Infinite Shine 5 Piece Set with y'all, and today I'm bringing you an {even more stunning} extension of those pretties with the OPI Spring 2019 Tokyo Collection Mini Nail Lacquer Set! While the former had a rainbow of shades to choose from; this particular quartet is all about the pink, and I, for one, am so here for it! Let's get to the swatches!

All Your Dreams in Vending Machines is a Metallic Electric Pink. Ooh babes this color is fire! Sooo...from the bottle I thought All Your Dreams in Vending Machines was going to be more purple than pink; but on the nail this beauty is a mind-blowing metallic electric pink with a cool blue shift that is unbelievable! Formula is flawless - it applies like a dream {no pooling in the cuticles], and dries lightning fast so you can be on. your. way in a flash. This is one shade you can't skip! This is 2 coats.


Arigato From Tokyo is a Medium Pink Creme. Is it purple or is it pink? Arigato From Tokyo is anotha stunna from the Tokyo collection. Not gonna lie, I feel like this shade would work better in a fall collection; however, that's just my personal preference so what-ever. Formula here, as with all of the Tokyo shades, is flawless. I wanted a more plush look, if you will, so I went for two coats; but you could easily get away with just one. Huzzah! This is 2 coats.


Another Ramen-tic Evening. Pink Lilac Creme. Can we just take note of the fact that OPI went hard with the names of these polishes when they created this collection? Like wowza I dig it! Another Ramen-tic Evening is billed as a dusty rose creme; but it def reads more pinky lilac on the nail - which I absolutely l-o-v-e for spring! The formula here is a liiittle runny, but still incredibly easy to work with, and v easy to build. If you were a fan of OPI's Getting Nadi On My Honeymoon you'll love this one! This is 2 coats.


Rice Rice Baby is a Mauve Pink Creme. Sooooo... typically I reach for mauve shades during the chilly fall, sweater weather months; but I'm actually liking this one as a break between brights for summer. Rice Rice Baby is a muted mauve pink that seamlessly falls into the neutral, your-nails-but-better category. It's feminine and playful; yet ultra sophisticated with a touch of sass.
