Gelish Matadora 2017 Collection Swatches

Press Sample

Matadora, Spanish inspired, Morgan Taylor, Gelish

Now that Summer has officially started, I am 100% ready for fall. Fall has always been my favorite season...I love the colors, the smells, and most of all, the temperature. We're positively melting here in Vegas–on Tuesday it was 118º, so it's no wonder that I am looking forward to fall! I'm not sure why I chose Las Vegas as my home, I've always hated the heat, and this place is B-R-U-T-A-L.

In hopes of speeding autumn my way, I have the Gelish Matadora collection for fall to show you today! This collection will be available in August, and you're definitely going to want to pick up this Spanish inspired color set! Hit the jump for swatches!

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab American Gods Swatches and Review

Press Sample


What comes to mind when you think of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab? For me, it's vials of potions and scents that are completely unique. I have a few of their scents, one of which was made for the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia, and it has notes of old books (my fav!), leather, balsam, and raw vanilla. As soon as I read the description, I knew that I had to have it. But, I digress, we're not here to talk about fragrances today, we're here to talk about the amazing new American Gods nail polish collection that is amazing from the candy pink crelly of Easter to the chartreuse and gold glitter of Coin Trick. Come with me, and we'll travel the world of Neil Gaiman's American Gods after the jump!

Nothing to Disclose



Isn't it weird how one minute you're doing something, and the next, something worms its way so firmly in your brain that you have no choice but to drop what you're doing?

SHOES. They're my one TRUE love...sorry Chris, if you're reading this. They've always been there for me, and even through pain, and sometimes blisters, my love is unconditional. I love them all, heels and flats, wedges (even though I suck at walking in them) and platforms, even stilettos. The only shoe that I just can't get behind is the kitten heel. I just don't understand it, but I digress.

Last night there was an event that really was a perfect fit for me. It was at the Donald J Pliner store here in Las Vegas, so it satisfied my love of shoes, but it was also paired with something that tugged my heartstrings–an organization that works with people who have Parkinson's disease, and having a close family member afflicted by it, I was SO happy to be able to be a part of it.

Please hit the jump to read more about the event, the shoes, and the amazing organization!

#CincodeColor Event at COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck

Press Event


It's the 5th of May, what's a girl to do? Does she find the nearest taco truck (I'm game!), does she find the closest sombrero (NOPE!), or does she hang out at one of the 100 best salons in the country (as voted by Elle magazine) and indulge in festive margaritas with multi-colored sugary rims and glittery lips to match?! I think you know where this is going. Mmmm, tequila.

Geometric Vibes with Cácee Timeless Lacquer

Press Sample


Today I have a new to me brand, Cácee (pronounced [kah•shay]), and I'm delighted to show it to you! I got to try out 10 colors and their base and top coats, and I have to say, I'm pretty darn impressed! I got to try a variety of finishes, from foil to glitter to creme and back, and they were all great!

To better showcase the colors I received, I'm going to split them up over a couple of posts and show off some nail art featuring them as well as the swatches! Today I am featuring Gray as You Go, Far & Oasis, and Bright Summers with some geometric nail art! I had the idea to use the colors to create radiating vibrations from the geometric shapes. It kind of reminds me of wifi or something. Good goooood good good vibrations!
