Ready for part 2 and 3 more shades from the new JulieG core line? Today's colors aren't as bright as yesterday's but still just as pretty. Get ready for 3 more shimmer shades!

JulieG Nail Color - Core 2015 | Kat Stays Polished

Molten Lava is a deep red shimmer with a sort of coppery feel to it. I absolutely love it. Two coats and you've got a fantastic, bold shade to wear on your nails!

Am I obsessed with Obsessed? I don't know. This color is stunning and absolutely gorgeous but where would I wear it? This to me seems more like an evening winter shade. I shall revisit this in about 5-6 months.

#NailsoftheDay is a burgundy/brown with golden shimmer. I feel like I should be drinking a cup of coffee with this shade. Does it remind anyone else of coffee or am I just losing my mind? I really love this color.

JulieG 2015 Core - Part 1


Hey friends! So, if you haven't already heard, JulieG has added 9 new colors to her core line of nail polish. I'll be posting in 3 parts, each with 3 of the new colors. Here is part 1 with Pin-Up Girl, Albuquerque, and Supervillian.

JulieG Nail Color - Core 2015 | Kat Stays Polished

Pin-Up girl is described as a deep magenta frost. Though not a shade I'd wear often myself, it's got a great formula and I only needed two coats for opacity. I topped it off with JulieG Jet Set and I was good to go.

Albuquerque is a bright orange shimmer shade. This color is seriously no joke. I honestly couldn't believe how bright this was in person. All it takes is 2 coats to get it like this.

Supervillian is a bright red shimmer. Again, formula was great and it only takes 2 coats to get to this opacity. I feel like this would be a great Fall color, even something that could transition into Winter.

FingerPaints Gel Polish - Passion for P-ink


Hey, it's Friday! It's FingerPaints Friday! This week's gel color is called Passion for P-ink. You know I'm not a pink person but this color really grew on me. I also added a little something extra to my manicure this week.

FingerPaints Gel Polish - Passion for P-ink | Kat Stays Polished

As usual, I used 2 coats of color but this time, before I added the top coat, I applied little stones to my nails. I used a teeny bit of top coat to attach them, then cured that to get them to stay. Then I topped my entire nail with the top coat and cured again.

After it was done, I cleaned off my nails with alcohol and my mani was done! What do you think? Simple and easy right? Sadly, I lost a rhinestone later that first night because I washed my hair, haha. Today I have 4 stones left. I have my baby's 6-month photo shoot to do tomorrow so I will be touching up my nails before we go.

You can find these at Sally Beauty stores and online starting $10.99. Would you get this shade?

Wet N Wild Silver Lake 2015 Eyeshadow Palettes


Hey hey! More stuff from the Wet N Wild Silver Lake collection! This time, the shadows! I've had these for a while. I bought them when I got the polishes but I hadn't gotten around to using them yet. What I like about these is that all of the colors complement each other. You can create several looks with the colors provided in each palette.

Wet N Wild Silver Lake Eyeshadow Palettes | Kat Stays Polished

The first one is called Thrift Store Chic. It's full of soft pink shades with a few bold shimmers. The 4th color in the the most matte in this palette. The texture is pretty soft on these, even for the shimmers. Definitely a step up from Wet N Wild.

Vegan Culture is full of green shimmery shades with white and silver accent colors. These colors aren't obnoxiously bright so you could definitely create a subtle look. Again, texture was soft - some shimmer shades felt a little rough, but I'd still classify them as being soft and very blendable.

California Roll is a super fun palette with bright colors and...well, doesn't it remind you of sushi? California Roll is my absolute LEAST favorite (yea, I'm such a sushi snob) type of sushi, but I can live with this alternative in an eyeshadow palette. Again, soft texture and super blendable colors.

Vinyl Collection is your neutral palette in this set. There's 1 matte shade and 5 shimmer shades. All perfect for an everyday look.

Embrace Obscurity is your blue and purple palette. Again, not super bright (a little sheer actually) so it makes it easy to build your color slowly and create a look that's easy on the eyes.

Have you picked up any items from the Silver Lake Collection? I'm actually really excited to see what they come up with next summer!

I got mine at my local Walgreens. These were $3.99 a piece so they're very affordable. They might still be around if you have a good Walgreens store!

FingerPaints Gel Polish - Hue Do You He-art?


Hey guys! I guess we can start calling this FingerPaints Friday because here is my 2nd shade I'm showing you from their gel polish line. As you can tell from the label, it looks like it's going to be a creamy deep purple, which I'd love. Well.....

FingerPaints Gel Polish - Hue Do You He-art? | Kat Stays Polished

It turns out to be a seriously GORGEOUS deep shimmer purple! YAS! The first coat applied really thinly so I was afraid it wasn't going to be opaque in 2 coats. It most definitely was. The great thing about gels is that you don't necessarily have to worry about "globby polish" because it's easier to even out before you cure it.

Wet N Wild Silver Lake 2015: Coloricon Blush & Glow Trios


Be a shimmering bronzey goddess with Wet n Wild's Silver Lake Blush & Glow trios! I bought these way back when I got the Silver Lake polishes. I have some quick swatches below for you so take a gander!

The first one here is called Sunset Junction. It is the lightest of all the trio and is perfect if you just want to add a touch of color to your face. All of these trios have seriously soft and velvety product in the compact. Honestly, I'd say that these are better than last summer's bronzer compacts.

This second one is called Fair Trade Coffee. The highlight and the bronzer seem to be the same as Sunset Junction. The only difference here is the blush color which is a lot more pink. This will definitely add great color to your cheeks if that's the look you're going for.

Lastly, we have Solar Powered. This is the bronziest of them all and actually a great one to use for a beach trip! All the products were super soft and easy to work they. They blend really well for me too. Like I said, a lot better than last summer's collection.

I got mine at my local Walgreens. These were $4.99 a piece (I think) **update - they were $3.99** so they're definitely super affordable. They might still be around if your Walgreens is good at keeping collections around!
