3/18/12 Weekly Blog Roundup:-Unicorn Puke gets a little sister!

Or a close cousin? When I heard about Cult Nails releasing a new collection, Divas and Drama, I was only mildly curious. However, when I spotted a flakie in the mix, my attention was piqued. The new color, Seduction, is apparently a lot like Unicorn Puke, except without some of the green flakes.  The entire collection is swatched at this post.  The polishes are supposed to be available for pre-sale soon, but as of tonight the official Cult Nails website does not have them listed. In further Cult Nails news, the polish Captivated is back and is available right now on the official Cult Nails website

In case you haven't had your fill of St. Patrick's Day manicures, you can catch more of them at this post from Nouveau Cheap. People responded to G’s request for St. Patrick’s Day nail art in droves. Besides the amazing creativity in nail art and polish combinations, one of the things that struck me about the post was just how different the China Glaze polish Four Leaf Clover looks depending on the lighting!

You've probably seen pictures of the polishes in China Glaze's Prismatic collection by now. If you want to see the swatches, you're in luck. Both Scrangie and Kayla Shevonne have done posts about the collection. They both seem to really like it, so check out their posts at their blogs: Scrangie and Nails by Kayla Shevonne. Scrangie also has swatches up of the Wet n Wild Coloricon Be Jeweled collection, which seems to be similar, if not complete dupes of, the China Glaze Prismatic collection. Check out her post about it here.

If you're like me, you've wondered just how close a dupe Claire's Candy Shoppe is to the original Deborah Lippmann version. Now you can see a comparison between the two at the Colour is Magic blog. Here's a link to her post where she does a thorough comparison.

A few bloggers have been able to preview the OPI New York City Ballet collection. One of them is Carla at Deuce Beauties, who did a complete review in this post. She's a blogger I just discovered recently, and I'm amazed by the quantity of complete collections she swatches and variety of brands she covers.
