Who says glowy, bronzy things are only for the Summer? This year Bobbi Brown says they’re for Spring too! The Nude Glow Collection has some lovely bronzed and ethereal products, one of my favorites is the Bronze Shimmer Nail Polish. Yes, it’s limited edition.

Bobbi Brown BRONZE Shimmer Nail Polish Review Nude GlowWhat Nordstrom says about Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Nail Polish:

Bobbi always does polish right. Rich color instantly transforms fingertips into your most covetable accessory. Insider tip? Keep nails short and square with saturated colors like these.  0.37 oz.

Bobbi Brown BRONZE Shimmer Nail Polish SwatchesBronze is a rich metallic shade of…. wait for it… bronze. As you first paint this shade on you’ll find it a tad streaky, but as the polish settles on the nail those fade away and become much less apparent. Other than that, the formula is lovely and coated on easily, bringing this shade to full opacity in two coats.

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Nail Polish retails for $15.00 and is available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and bobbibrown.com.

Bobbi Brown Bronze Nude Glow Eyeshadow PaletteBobbi Brown Bronze Nude Glow Eyeshadow Palette backBobbi Brown Bronze Nude Glow Eyeshadow Palette review Bobbi Brown Bronze Nude Glow Eyeshadow Palette SwatchesBronze Nude Glow Eyeshadow Palette is a quad of light bronze-toned neutrals in Gold (a glittery white gold), Amber (a shimmery peachy gold), Toast (a warm peachy tan satin) and Rich Bronze (a metallic bronze).

These shades are the no-brainer, essential every day shades that anyone who can pull off warm tones needs in their vanity.  It’s small enough to keep in your makeup bag and versatile enough to wear day or night.  The mirror makes it easy to check yourself out while you reapply a lip color or if you just want to glance at how beautiful you are =)

You’re getting a generous amount of shadows, all of which are top-notch performers in their respective finishes.  The shades work well together, are soft and blendable.  I’m in love!

Of course, I don’t use it how “Bobbi says” but this is 100% one of my favorite eye looks of all time.  I applied Rich Bronze all over the lid, Toast to the crease blending up, Amber to blend out the crease and at the inner corners, finishing up with Gold to highlight.  The eye liner is MAC Graphic Brown Fluidline and the mascara is Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant and Too Faced Better Than Sex layered.

Luxurious butters and oils improve the overall condition of lips, instantly and over time. Glides on smoothly and evenly for hours of feather-free wear. In a range of creamy and shimmery shades (the hardest part is having to choose!). 0.13 oz.

Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color Nude Glow 2014Bobbi Brown PINK GOLD PINK FLUSH PINK ROSE Sheer Lip Color Nude Glow 2014 1 Bobbi Brown PINK GOLD PINK FLUSH PINK ROSE Sheer Lip Color Nude Glow 2014 SwatchesPink Gold is a muted sheer mauve with a slight shimmer, Pink Flush is a cool pink and Pink Rose is a plummy mauve.

Formula wise these lipsticks are lightweight and can be worn with one pass for a semi-opaque lip or layered for the full on pigment.  I found that these lip colors applied smoothly and wore about 3 hours or so before they began to disappear.  The shine is amazing and I must confess I’m loving that they’re not as sheer as I anticipated!

Top 10 Gilded & Glittery Nail Polish – Designer Edition

For this week’s Top 10 Tuesday I was sort of stuck.  Not that I don’t have anything glittery and shimmery… the problem is I love glittery and shimmery.  I basically had to break it down and chose nail polish (because I have less of that than sparkly eye shadow… which is kind of scary).

I pulled out all of the shimmery shades.  From looking at those I decided that Chanel and Dior make some seriously awesome gilded, gold and glittery shades – especially around the holidays.  I decided to feature them and threw in a new one from Bobbi Brown, since it’s the only one still readily available in store.

Top 10 Gilded & Glittery Nail PolishClick the links for swatches!

  1. Chanel Diwali.  From 2012 Bombay Express de Chanel.  One of my fave bright metallic golds!
  2. Chanel Gold Fingers.  From 2012 Las Vegas de Chanel.  I couldn’t get my hands (fingers?) on this complex 24K gold fast enough!
  3. Dior Golden Light.  From Golden Jungle 2012.  This collection as a whole was pretty awesome.. it had a leopard palette, so… winner!  Golden Light is a sheer gold that is buildable to opaque in 3-4 coats.
  4. Dior Exquis.  From 2011 Les Rouges Or.  A golden khaki shade that is so popular on the eyes also looks fabulous on the nails.
  5. Dior Timeless Gold.  From Holiday 2010.  A lovely, silvered gold (platinum?).  I lucked out finding this one hiding behind a stash of other nail polish shades!
  6. Dior Gold Nugget.  From Holiday 2008.  A beautiful golden bronze metallic.  It’s almost embarrassing to link the swatch to this, but I guess it’s okay to see how I’ve developed as a blogger/swatcher over the years.  Be kind =P
  7. Dior Czarina Gold.  From Holiday 2010.  I almost missed this one, but got lucky with a bunch of frantic calls around the US.  I lucked out and this deep browned olive with gold shimmer became mine in August 2011!
  8. Dior Apparat.  From 2011 Les Rouges Or.  A gorgeous burgundy laced with fine gold shimmer.
  9. Dior Merveille.  From 2011 Les Rouges Or.  The perfect bright red laced with gold dust.  I really should update the swatches on this one to reflect the gold.  It’s truly stunning.
  10. Bobbi Brown Chrome Glitter.  From 2013 Old Hollywood.  This nail polish is the only one of the lot you can still get your hands on, but you better hurry – it’s limited edition!  It’s a must-have polish with a clear base and loaded with gold and holo glitters.
