Hello lovelies! I have a special post for you guys, so I’ll keep my little introduction to a minimum. Today is my first time reviewing a nail care product on the blog before! I’m oddly excited about it haha. But, prepare yourself to learn about some awesome products from Lipsticks & Nail Polish! This post will be all about the Halloween items, and there will be a part two up next week with even more goodies. Thank you to Cristina for reaching out to me and giving me this opportunity!

First up, let’s review the mani bombs! I’ll start off with my general thoughts before listing prices, scents and etc. But, I’ve really been enjoying these! Cristina’s mani bombs don’t leave my hands feeling super greasy and oily after I finish soaking them, which is something that I really, really appreciate. I don’t have a lot of free time to relax right now because of volunteer commitments, so the fact that I can do a ten minute soak and walk away with moisturized hands is amazing! My hands felt softer after use and my cuticles are looking even better. If you’ve tried mani bombs in the past, but didn’t like the film like residue that’s left behind afterwards, I recommend you try these ones out! The scents of these are all really nice but not so strong that it gives you a headache, and they fizz for a decent amount of time so they’re fun. Enough talking though, onto the photos.

Polishes used: Polish Addict Nail Color’s Running Out Of Moonlight, Hare Polish’s Midsummer’s Midnight & Great Lakes Lacquer’s Love At Loyola

First up is the manicure that I did using the waterslide decals! Now, Cristina said that I didn’t have to review these because it turns out that the adhesive on the decals is defective and is actually a satin finish when it should be glossy. But! I’ve never actually tried waterslide decals before, so I wanted to test them out from a new user point of view. And holy crap! Guys. These things make nail art SO easy. Other than a few wrinkles (which I’m chalking up to user error) and the obvious square around the design (I’m guessing the defective adhesive,) I loved these! I’ve always been so hesitant to try decals before, but I might have to order some more of these for those days when I don’t really have time do free hand work. I also really appreciated that the designs are pretty detailed and have features that I probably couldn’t manage with acrylic paint and a brush.

Sheet of 48 Decals (8 of each design) – $5

Polishes used: Parallax Polish’s Challenger Deep (press sample,) Daily Hues Nail Lacquer’s Kristi & Parallax Polish’s On-Off Cells (press sample)

Next up is the manicure I did using her nail stencils! Now, vinyls are something that I still struggle with (aka I have no patience to wait for my base polish to dry,) so I usually end up making decals on my UberChic mat instead of applying them directly to my nails. Which is what I did here! The vinyls are very sticky and will stick to anything and everything if you aren’t careful, but I was able to make two decals per stencil because of this. The quality feels great as well (aka the design doesn’t rip when you peel it off the sheet,) but some of them don’t seem like they were “weeded” fully. It’s not difficult to punch the design out of the vinyl, but just something to note.

Sheet of 35 Stencils – $4

Polishes used: Zoya’s Honor, China Glaze’s Grass Is Lime Greener, Parallax Polish’s Corpus Callosum (press sample) & Pipe Dream Polish’s Make It Rain

I saved my favorite look for last, and it is the one featuring the nail stickers! These are self explanatory, so I’m not going to go into how to apply them. But the Halloween designs are all really cute and the sizes worked really well for my nails! The coffin is the biggest one on the whole sheet and I was still able to fit it on my pinky with no over hang. Also, the material isn’t overly thick like other stickers I’ve used in the past. I do recommend being careful when peeling these off of the paper, because they are very sticky and I almost lost a couple to my tweezers. But, I liked these!

Sheet of 113 Stickers – $6

Overall, I’m very impressed with this brand! I’ve never heard of Lipsticks & Nail Polish before, but I’m really glad that I got the chance to work with Cristina. It’s obvious to me that she really cares about her product. All of her packaging is cute and she was even nice enough to type up little guides to all of the products in the box she sent. Even all of her little Nail Swag sheets have instructions on how to use the products on the back. I can’t wait to share more items with you guys next week!
