Glisten & Glow Summer Livin' Swatches

Press Sample


Summer is upon us - especially here in Las Vegas, where temperatures are blazing well past 100° - in fact, they're set to reach 113° tomorrow! What goes perfectly with summer? NEONS! They're the perfect summer polish - they even manage to make ghostly pale girls like me look much tanner than we actually are! For this year's summer collection, Jill came up with some killer neons- they're fairly opaque, are hella bright even without a white base, and even stamp! Read on to see swatches of this new collection from Glisten & Glow!

The Shopping Day of the Centurion!

Press Event



When in Rome, do as the Romans do! Last Saturday, a few local Las Vegas beauty and lifestyle bloggers got a chance to do just that! I'm sure you're all familiar with Caesars Palace, and you might have even been to The Forum Shops (if you haven't, I highly recommend it!), but I guarantee you weren't escorted around by a centurion in full gladiator garb! :D Read on to find out about our awesome shopping day put together by Christie Moeller of icanstyleu.com, where our Centurion took us, and what one of the most exclusive and awesome pieces of swag I've ever received was gifted to us at the end of our day!

Rollercoaster of Love - Easy Valentine's Day Nail Art!

Influenster Sample


Rollercoasterrrrr of LOOOOOOOVEEE! Good luck, my well polished friends, on getting that little wormy guy out of your ear. It's always a challenge to think of fun Valentine's Day nail art ideas year after year, you know, since hearts are hard to reinvent. haha The pressure! What's a new take on love?! This year, I turned to some of my favorite things for inspiration, things like pizza, lettering, and rollercoasters! Read on for more & to see what I used!

Welcome to my Fragrance Wardrobe!

Nothing to Disclose

I've got a bit of a fragrance problem. I don't tend to stick to one fragrance–I have a 'fragrance wardrobe' that I can pull from so I can always wear a scent that fits my mood for the day. Still, there are definitely some favorites that get more wear than others, and that's what I'm sharing with you today! 

I should mention that I don't tend to tend to wear typical 'girl' scents. I stay away from gourmand scents with sugar, vanilla, or chocolate notes. Aquatic scents aren't really my style either- they tend to smell far too sweet on my skin. What do I like? WOOD. I loooove deep, masculine woody scents, and anything with oud is sure to be a quick favorite for me! (as you'll see below) I also don't like wearing what everyone else is wearing - if someone else in the room is wearing it, I tend to shy away from it. Sure, there are exceptions, but for the most part, I could be considered a slight scent snob.

What are your favorite scents? Read below to find out about a few of mine!

Pizza My Heart - Valentine's Day Nail Art!

Nothing to Disclose

It's T minus 21 days until V-day. Now is the time to start with Valentine's Day designs, at least here in the blogosphere. Today's nail art is an homage to one of my all-time loves, an undying love that I'm pretty sure Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross sang a duet about. You guessed it... it's pizza! We've had something special going on for longer than I can remember, and more years than I'd care to admit. ;)


The inspiration for this came from so many places that I don't think I could name just one, but I love how they turned out!

Is pizza your one true love? We can totally share, but only if you don't want anchovies. ;) *pineapple is acceptable, despite what Gordon Ramsay says.


What I used:

Light Blue: KIKO Nail Lacquer in 340
Pizza Crust: Essie Bags to Riches
Pizza Sauce: Essie Alligator Purse
Cheese: H&M Masala Chai
Pepperoni: Essie Alligator Purse
Browned Cheese: ancient H&M polish in Rust
Black: Twinkled T Stamping polish in black

Topcoat: Glisten & Glow Top coat

It's the Thrill of the Chill!

Press Sample


We don't get much in the way of snow here in Vegas, so I tend to live vicariously (and happily) through my friends and family back home in Michigan. It never fully feels like winter here; sure, we get the odd days or weeks when it's super chilly–even freezing–but I never have to shovel my driveway or scrape my windshield, which is AWESOME. Why am I yammering on about snow and cold? Because I have the new Morgan Taylor Thrill of the Chill nail polish collection to show you, and you're not gonna want to miss it! Hit the jump for swatches!
