Stella Chroma - Premier Trio

1 comment

Hiya guys! Man this week is flying by and I am loving it. Usually I find that time escapes me, but with so many polish collections releasing I feel anxious for the dates to come. Heaven knows I need the little pick me up. But I know I'm not the only one so allow me to play the role of enabler once more, haha. Today I'm sharing swatches for the stunning Premier Trio by Stella Chroma, former known as Paint Box Polish. But before we get to the swatches themselves, let's take a look at the brand itself.

One of the major changes with this rebranding is charity! The creator behind Stella Chroma, Pam, is a Nurse Practitioner with nieces that have an avid interest in the sciences. Because of that, Stella Chroma will be partnering with a different organization each quarter and donating a portion of sales. The first one is IGNITE (Inspiring Girls Now In Technology Evolution), which is a non-profit that introduces girls in grades 6-12 to technology and engineering careers via various programs in partnership with their schools.

Stella Chroma - Premier Trio

The Premier Trio by Stella Chroma will be releasing Thursday, June 29th. Each full-size 15mL bottle will be retailing for $12 to $13, depending on the finish. Check out the end of the post for a special customer giveaway!

GO BACK TO SCHOOL IN STYLE: INTRODUCING THE NEW SALLY HANSEN + CRAYOLA INSTA-DRI COLLECTION!


Sharpen those pencils, pack that apple, and add the final touch to your back-to-school look in an instant! The new Sally Hansen + Crayola Insta-Dri Collection transports you back to that care-free time of coloring with crayons, sketching out vibrant creations, and jumping back into the September back to school season. Color authorities Crayola and Sally Hansen joined forces to offer a bright, bold, and fun suite of hues that dry in just 60 seconds — so no time is wasted for the woman on the go. With a 60 second dry time, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri® Nail Color’s 3-in-1 formula features a built-in base and top coat to provide shiny, extended wear in a single step in just one stroke. These color specialists did their homework: From a saturated red to a marvelously mod white, here are the 12 new, specially designed shades inspired directly by the Crayola crayon colors we all know and love.

  • Wild Strawberry - Ripe and ravishing, this primary red crème shade is a classic.
  • Sunset Orange - As bold as it is beautiful, this hue conjures memories of blissful beachy evenings.
  • Carnation Pink - Everything’s coming up carnations in this vivid, pretty pink.
  • Dandelion - Picked right from a sprawling field, this sunny saturated yellow is a force of nature.
  • Granny Smith Apple - Take it to the tart side in this vivaciously verdant polish.
  • Cerulean - Rock this hue, it’s a go-to blue for back to school. 
  • Vivid Violet - Cultivate the feeling of floral fancy in this purple shade that elevates any first-day-of-school outfit.
  • White - No better way to kick off the year than with a blank slate. Be crisper than a white board with this pristine white.
  • Razzmatazz - It’s your time to shine bright and be a dazzling star with this raspberry hue.
  • Scarlet - Show off your summer tan with this red hot mani.
  • Denim - Casually cool, this jean-ius indigo hue goes with everything.
  • Purple Heart - Be the Queen Bee in this courageously colorful purple.

Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri® is #1 in the quick-dry segment. The Sally Hansen X Crayola Insta-Dri Back To School Collection will be available July 2017. Crayola is the worldwide leader in children’s creative expression products. The Crayola brand is known for its iconic Crayola crayons, and portfolio of colorful and innovative art tools, crafting activities and creative toys.

Contrary Polish - Shimmahs June Group Customs

Leave a Comment

Hiya guys! The squares are back in town peeps! Pelvic thrusts all around the mani caves, haha. I'm so glad my nails have finally grown out enough to be squares. Not going to lie, it's been a rough few weeks getting used to the round shape. I almost thought I'd never be able to go back to squares. Like seriously, it's been a recurring nightmare for the last month. Thankfully I got some nail mail just in time to celebrate.

Today I'm sharing swatches for the customs created by Contrary Polish for the Shimmahs Group on Facebook. I ended up purchasing these before my pups got sick and they ended up coming in the mail at the perfect time. After everything I have been through the last two weeks I feel like I need a major pick me up and these did the trick. Let's see the shimmer magic and get to the swatches!
