New ways to follow Holly and Polish!

Hey everyone!

I figure this will be a great way to connect with you guys and let you know more about me and my blog.

China Glaze United For A Purpose Collection

Hey everyone!

Today, I have swatches of the entire China Glaze United For A Purpose Collection to share with you all! This is China Glaze's 2012 Breast Cancer Awareness release. This collection consists of 12 polishes.

Check them out:


I'm short on time today, so I'm not going to post descriptions of the colors. My photos provide an accurate description of the color, so I think that's enough. :)

I will just say that a couple of these were difficult to work with. Some of them were jellys and had a goopy consistency to them, so that made them difficult to get even. The glitters were thick, so I just had to do one coat, and then let it dry for five minutes before I could apply again.

Thanks for reading!

Oh, and if you haven't had a chance to look at the YuYu Fashion Store that I've had advertised on the side of my blog this past month, you should check it out! They have some cute stuff!

YuYu Fashion Store Review!

Hey everyone!

Tonight, I have a review of the YuYu Fashion Store to share with you all! For those of you who have never heard of YuYu Fashion, it's a Singapore and Malaysia online fashion store. The site pretty new, considering it just opened this past year. YuYu sells a huge variety of fashion, apparel, shoes, and accessories!

Even though YuYu Fashion is based in Singapore, they ship internationally, so you can get their products no matter where you're located! (I tried to look into international shipping costs, but couldn't find any info) Also, they accept payment through paypal!

I took a look through the website, and I saw a ton of different clothing items that I would love to wear! They seem to have something for all different types of people. The prices were relatively cheap. You could get a dress on this site for $15 or a pair of earrings for $5.

Born Pretty Nail Art Pearls

Hey everyone!

Tonight, I have a review of Born Pretty's Nail Art Pearls to share with you all! These nail pearls are really awesome! I was afriad that they would be really difficult to use, but they weren't. I just put a little bit of top coat underneath each pearl, and then carefully placed it on my dry nails.

Born Pretty sells these in a pack of 10,000 for $7.10.

I used the pearls to create a simple design on my accent nail.

Born Pretty Double Pearl Headband Review

Hey everyone!

Today, I have a review of Born Pretty's Double Pearl Headband to share with you all! Many of you in the nail blogging community would probably associate Born Pretty with nail art supplies, but they actually have some other really cute items.

The double pearl headband I was sent is available in two different colors (white or gray). This headband looks awesome on, and is a simple way to dress up an outfit. Sometimes when I wear headbands, they hurt my head after a few hours, but this one was really comfortable!

This retails for $2.47 on the Born Pretty website!

OPI Germay Collection Giveaway Winner!

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the delay in posting this winner! I really prefer using google docs for my giveaways instead of other easier methods, like rafflecopter, since I love having the ability to ask for your comments and thoughts on my site. I've gotten a lot of great feedback this way, and when I tried to implement this step into rafflecopter, I had a hard time doing it. I'm sure I will have to give this up eventually when my giveaways become too time consuming, but for now, this is how I'm going to do it!

Anyway, the winner of the entire OPI Germany Collection is:

Ashlie P!

Congrats to Ashlie! I've already emailed her, and she has 48 hours to respond. If I don't hear back from here in 48 hours, I will pick another winner.

For those of you who didn't win, don't be discouraged! I will be having another giveaway starting real soon!!

Sammy Dress Outfits!!

Hey everyone!

The website Sammydress recently sent me a couple of clothing items to try out and review! For those of you who don't know what Sammydress is, it's a great extremely affordable clothing website. They literally have thousands of cute items to choose from. If you haven't been to the site before, you can check it out here!!!

Here are a couple of items I was sent:

Pink Cardigan
This knit cardigan was very comfortable and made an easy outfit by just throwing it over a black tank top. It has faux pearl buttons that match the sweater's color perfectly. This is available in 3 different colors and retails for $6.38 on the Sammydress website!

Black lace Cardigan
This cardigan was really pretty! This is very thin, and basically has the same thickness of a standard long sleeve shirt. This has a beautiful lace design going down the front. I couldn't find the link for this item, but an item very similar to this one retails for $7.09!

Dream Girl Couture Review!

Hey everyone!

I was recently sent a couple of items from Dream Girl Couture that I want to share with you all! Dream Girl Couture is an awesome online store that sells affordable women's clothing! They have a great variety of cute items ranging from dresses, tops, shoes, outerwear, etc.

Here is what I was sent:

This shirt is extremely pretty and actually surprisingly soft. I really love it! Unfortunately, this was a bit too small in my shoulders. :( I did my measurements before ordering it and thought it would fit great, but I was wrong. I'm going to give it to my sister, who is a bit smaller than me. When I washed this, it came out great. The color didn't fade and I didn't notice any shrinkage. This top would definitely be a great piece to wear around the Holidays!
This coat is awesome! It is very comfortable and stretchy and fit me perfectly! This is probably heavy enough to get me through mid-December (I live in the Midwest were it gets extremely cold and snows a lot), which I was surprised about. I thought that this coat would be kind of thin and more of a fashion piece, but it's actually very sturdy and solid, which is great! The only downside to this is that it's dry clean only, so it's not very convenient to wash.
Dream Girl Couture has some great affordable Fall clothes out right now that you can check out here! Go and check them out, and I'd love to hear what your favorite items are in the comments! :)

Milani 3D Holographic Collection

Hey everyone!

How have you all been? For those of you who don't know yet, I've been working with some companies to advertise on my blog so I can afford to spend more time working on polish stuff for you guys! One of the first companies who committed to this was Yu Yu fashion! They're really nice. :) If you haven't had a chance to yet, you can visit their website by clicking the ad in my sidebar!

Today I have some swatches of Milani's 3D Holographic collection! This collection consists of 5 different polishes that have what is described by Milani as "a unique 3D holographic effect that no other nail lacquer has ever achieved." (These polishes are really pretty, but I don't know if I would go that far...)

Formula wise, these polishes are very sheer, which actually makes them very easy to work with. These polishes are extremely smooth and don't have a clumpy, gritty feel to them like most glitter polishes. Since these polishes apply so thin, three coats are necessary in order to reach full opacity.

Here are the swatches:
