I had to share my nail of the day as a quick post from F.U.N Lacquer. It's a somewhat new indie brand to my collection as of late last year. One night (maybe a few too many glasses of wine) I ran across these beautiful polishes. Since then I've been drawn to their unique creations. The maker is from Singapore and ships quickly internationally.

My nail of the day is from their 2nd anniversary line, Mystical (H) which is a flakie polish in the holographic form. It shifts from blue, gold and green and is simply stunning. I layered one coat over one coat of black with a shiny top coat. After a day or two I usually transform this into a matte look which will also be as equally stunning.

This is hands down one of the most gorgeous flakie polish I own. I'm loving the holographic effect combined with flakes in this! Unfortunately right now it's sold out but if you follow F.U.N Lacquer on Instagram you can get updates on restocks.

Pear Nova Fall 2015

It's been a busy summer! Fall is soon approaching and I'm excited for all the new collections.  Today I have swatches and a review on Pear Nova's Fall 2015 line.  This is a brand known for the best creme polishes on the market right now!

The collection is inspired by fashion designer, Haider Ackermann.  Check out a description of each polish after the collage.

Jaded Auras is a nice green creme. This was opaque in 2 coats and no top coat was needed for my swatch.  This is the perfect transition color into the Fall from summer.

Partially Nude is a clay, peachy nude. Again it was fully opaque in 2 coats and no top coat was needed.

Glamher is a dense champange holographic glittter. This can be worn as a full manicure or accent nail. It took 3 coats to be fully opaque and the formula was amazing!

U-Taupe-ia is the perfect, quintessential nude color for any lacquer collection.  I love colors like these because not only are they on trend but they are very professional looking as I have a very corporate 9-5 career. It took only 2 coats to be opaque. The first coat was a bit sheer but the second easily made it opaque.

Lastly is The Violet Hour, a violet, creme that was fully opaque with 2 coats. The formula was a bit runny but not at all difficult to work with.

The full collection is available here for $45.  Individual polishes cost $10 a piece and available for sale now. 
My favorite was Glamher, I can see myself using this around the holidays for the perfect accent nail manicure.  Also The Violet Hour is the perfect color any season. I can't reiterate how pleased I've been with this line.  These polishes are some of my favorite creme polishes and the formula and customer service of the brand keeps me coming back for more!
