Review: Morgan Taylor 'Cinderella' Spring 2015 Collection

Review: Deborah Lippmann 'Fantastical' Collection

When you think of a holiday nail lacquer collection you probably visualize red, green, silver, gold and white, and all the ways you can turn that into glitter, metallics, and shimmers. Now, I’m the first gal to get excited over that color palette but Deborah Lippmann has, as they say, ‘been there, done that’ …and that’s why I’m super excited that she let her imagination run wild with her not-so-traditionally-festive new Holiday/Winter 2014 Fantastical Collection.

The exotic line features a whimsical array of colors in vibrant lime green, shimmering burnt orange, electric pink, celestial blue, a moon-changing teal, and a sparkling black to take you on a magical ride. I was practically vibrating with excitement when I saw a preview of these colors so, needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to test run a few shades that I’m about to share with you.

So…. let’s get to it! | continue reading..
