ANNOUNCING: Charity Nail Polish Jewelry Sale!

I've been making nail polish jewelry for myself for as long as I can remember and have made a few pairs of earrings for different occasions, unable to find the right color combo. With the encouragement of my friends, I have opened up an online shop featuring earrings, pendants, hair clips, and other items made with nail polish! The BEST part is that all of the profits are donated to Autism New Jersey, a nonprofit dedicated to serving autistic individuals and their families.

I'm constantly adding items to the site and only the earrings are up at the moment. They are available in both sterling silver and surgical steel.

Another cool aspect of the jewelry is that I am able to do custom designs in whatever combinations, shades, and patterns you can dream up. There is no additional charge for a custom order either! Check out my polish stash here for some ideas!

There is a certain pre-made quantity of each item listed at the store, but they don't take too long to make. So don't worry if something sells out. It will be re-stocked really quickly!

If you have any questions or custom orders, please feel free to email me: PrincessPolishBlog(at)

Thank you in advance for your support!

Swatch and Review: Nicole by OPI Yellow... It's Me

I found this shade in the clearance bin at my local Harmons and had honestly never heard of it. My yellow drawer is quite light in comparison to the others (really, it shares its room with brown and orange), so I picked it up and thought I would give it a go.

Nicole by OPI Yellow... It's Me is a buttercup yellow with peach shimmer. It is rather opaque, so I layered two coats of it over Saint Germain Yellow Sun (stay tuned for the new SG collection tomorrow). It's very hard to see in the bottle, but the shimmer is prominent on the nail.

It was SO hard to capture the shimmer in the photos. I highly recommend that you click on the images below to see the sparkle of it better. It's like the yellow version of Sinful Colors Cinderella.

I'm not a fan of yellows, especially because they can bring out bad tones in my skin and look super gaudy. But Yellow... It's Me is an excellent shade for me because it's a little more subtle, but has a pop to it that is VERY me. It lives up to its nail!

So what do you all think? Is this your kind of yellow too?
