Cult Nails Masquerade!

Hi guys! Today's post is featuring Masquerade from the Cult Nails Midnight Masquerade Collection.
I'm just posting Masquerade since I'm really behind and come on, this is the showstopper of the trio!
I can't even explain how pretty this beauty is in person, just so much better.

It is pretty sheer but it looked nice at three thin coats,
 I added a fourth since sometimes polishes can appear more sheer in photos vs in person.

Press Sample Affiliate Link

Hello lovelies! Sorry for the serious lack of posting lately, I've been posting less and trying to catch up on swatches! 
I'm trying hard to get back on my game, or hey maybe improve!

Today's post the the awesome Polish Revolution Such a Drag Collection!
This collection was inspired by RuPaul’s Drag Race! I haven't seen it before but maybe I should watch it?!
Polish Revolution Such a Drag Collection (2)
Polish Revolution Bad Ass Mother Tucker
Bad Ass Mother Tucker - One coat over China Glaze Mahogany Magic & Zoya Dree.

"If there is anything one can say about drag performers, it is this: they have confidence, and are genuine bad asses. This polish sparkles and shines like the personalities and abilities of the performers who have what it takes to be such a drag. This is a fine mix of turquoise holo, caramel, and iridescent glitter in a clear base."

Polish Revolution Having a Kiki
Having a Kiki - One coat over a grey Ombre! See the Ombre on it's own here.

Sephora Formula X Hyped, an Ombre and a Gradient!

Hi guys! Here is a quick post before my review!
I used these manicures as "undies" for the new Polish Revolution collection.
I thought I should post them before the review to avoid bulking up that post :)

Sephora Formula X Hyped
Sephora Formula X Hyped - Three coats.

This isn't a review post but I want to say really quickly that I was disappointed in this formula.
Definitely manageable, nothing too difficult but I guess I expected more from Sephora!
It just didn't apply very evenly. The formula was kind of a let down, but the color is gorgeous!

Gray Ombre
The colors used for this Ombre:
Finger Paints Stunning Stilettos, Zoya Kelly, Zoya Petra, and A England Camelot.

And for this gradient I used Zoya Breezi, NOPI Khloe Had A Little Lam Lam, and China Glaze Holly Day.
I sponged them over a white base using the sponge painting method.

Okay be prepared to see these layered on and even more gorgeous!

Femme Fatale Cosmetics - Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Man it feels so weird that I haven't blogged in like two weeks, I definitely overestimated my ability to keep up blogging during a move and I apologize! But things are pretty settled now so I should get back in my groove soon :)

We've been settling into the new house and running in and out of Home Depot spending money on a bunch
of random house things! Blinds, door stops, a drill etc lol Little things sure add up! Still a lot more to get also D:
I painted my daughters room and did a pink to purple ombre/gradient wall! I'll post a picture of it at the end of this post!

Today's post is featuring four stunning polishes from Femme Fatale Cosmetics.
This is my first experience with their nail polishes but I have tried their eye shadows and love them!

Femme Fatale Ruby Hare
Ruby Hare - Two coats.

"A medium berry pink with subtle copper shine and liner holo."
