Hello All,

Toes That Twinkle was a blog that I created to share my love of nail polish to everyone who wanted to listen. What www.toesthattwinkle.com/ eventually evolved to was a website where women could come and read about products that pampered and made each lady feel special. I have had so much fun getting to know my 1300+ followers and listening to each and every comment no matter how small. The real world is calling and I just don't have the time anymore to post everyday and review nail polish swatches. I hope you all enjoy the hobby of painting your nails and just want to say thank you to every single one of my lovely followers who spent each morning looking at my posts.

Thank you all so much,


304- Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Part Three

 Monday, August 8, 2011

Hope you all had a great weekend. I will be vacationing this week so If I dont post as much now you know why!

This is the third and last group of polishes from the Fall Finger Paints collection. The Fall Fashionista line is made up of nine cremes and today the last three's names are Military Green, Vintage Velvet and Stunning Stilettos. 

Military green is a grey green that fits its name perfectly. It has a blue tone and is a wonderful murky color.

Application was great. I used one thick coat and a topcoat. This color is very fashion forward right now and I really enjoy military inspired colors and clothing for fall.

Vintage Velvet is a light teal that is a bit drab in color. Its an interesting color and I personally love it and would consider it a fall staple. 

The smoky lacquer applied great as well and I used two coats with a topcoat.

Last but not least Stunning Stilettos. Stunning Stilettos is a cloudy grey creme that is fun to wear and interesting but not exactly unique.

I really liked this shade but I already have a few greys like this.

Overall I really liked the Fall Fashionista colors. They all were perfect for fall and had a certain on trend feeling about them. My favorite three were Cordur-Orange, Vintage Velvet and Raspberry Taffeta. I want to know your favorite three! 

All the colors are found exclusively at Sallys.


303- Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Part Two!

 Saturday, August 6, 2011

Its the second installment of the swatches for Finger Paints Fall Fashionista Collection. Last post I reviewed Catwalk Queen, Pinstripe Purple and To-Teally Chic. Today I will review Raspberry Tafetta, Haute Taupe and Cordur-Orange.

Raspberry Tafetta is a super pretty berry shade that is a great fall shade. Its a medium shade that doesnt necessarily scream fall but it is very appropriate for the summer-winter months. I really liked this shade and I will be sporting it.
Application was great for this creme. I used only one coat and it didnt even need a topcoat! This stunner was well made and the formula is of great quality.
Haute Taupe is a basic brown creme. Its a light brown and reminds me of a sister to YDKJ. I barely ever wear these kinds of shades but they do look chic and go great for fall.

Application for this was also really good. I used two coats and went with the topcoat. I think this is a fashion forward shade and a good basic for fall.

Cordur-Orange is the star of the Fall Fashionista collection. Its the perfect fall orange that reminds me of leaves turning color and the cooler temperatures to come. 

Application was great and I didnt think I was going to like Cordur-Orange but I ended up loving it. 

Which shade was your favorite?


302- Finger Paints Fall Fashionista

 Thursday, August 4, 2011

Finger Paints released their new fall collection called Fall Fashionista. All the colors have some sort of fashion in their names. Finger Paint's new collection is made up of nine beautiful cremes. 

I feel like most nail polish companies go directly to dull dark shades for fall and while those are appropriate its nice when they come out with some bright shades. Fall Fashionista has some killer bright shades but most are what I expect from a fall collection.

The nine colors in this collection are: Military Green, Purple Pinstripe, Raspberry Taffeta, Stunning Stilettos, To-Teally Chic, Vintage Velvet, Catwalk Queen, Cordur-Orange, and Haute Taupe.

I randomly picked three of the 9 to start with. 
Purple Pinstripe is a very creme-y purple lacquer that is mid tone and almost berry in color. 

Purple Pinstripe's application was awesome. It literally melted on to my nail. I love cremes for application they are so much easier to apply and take off!
I did not use topcoat and I dont think I needed any. This polish really shined by itself.

Catwalk Queen is one of the most unique lacquers in this collection. Unique doesnt mean I like it and I just dont see myself wearing Catwalk Queen.

Catwalk Queen kind of remind me of a gross dijon color. Its murky and its unflattering on my skintone. 

Application was again really good. These cremes apply beautifully in one to two coats. They are glossy and pretty.

Maybe this interesting shade will look better on other skin tones but it just looked terrible on me!

To-Teally Chic is a medium teal color that rocked my boat. This in my opinion is the perfect fall color. Super cool and deep enough to make it not a summer color while not being dark enough for a winter.

To-Teally Chic had a great application with no need of topcoat. I used only one coat! 

To-Teally Chic is a medium color that I think is very complimentary on most skintones. 

So there you have the first three shades from the collection To-Teally Chic, Catwalk Queen, and Purple Pinstripe. Which one is your favorite?


301- Dr.'s Remedy Glee Gold

 Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Glee Gold is the last lacquer in Dr.'s Remedy's Hot Hot Hot nail polish collection. Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish is free from harsh toxins to promote healthier, stronger nails and the first-ever nail polish on the market approved by the American Podiatric Association. Dr.'s Remedy is available for $17 online at Remedynails.com.

Glee Gold is a metallic gold and its very stunning. Golds dont always look good on my but this mid tone metallic looks good on my skin which has a yellow undertone.
Application was very good! I used 1-2 coats for each nails. I did apply a topcoat afterwards to make the shimmer extra shiny! 

Glee Gold is one of my favorites from this collections. The other polishes from this collection is Bold Baby Blue, Nurture Nude Pink, Tranquil Tangerine, and Lovely Lavender. Click on the names to see the reviews!


300- Dr.'s Remedy Nurture Nude Pink

 Saturday, July 30, 2011

Nurture Nude Pink is the fourth shade I will be reviewing from the Dr.'s Remedy Hot Hot Hot collection. 

Nurture Nude Pink sticks out from this collection of bright lively shades. Its almost like Dr.'s Remedy decided to throw in one normal shade for those girls who cant wear bold colors. Its a peachy nude color that unfortunately has the worst application from this collection.

I needed two-three coats to make this color opaque and even. All the other shades only needed one-two coats. The color itself is flattering and pretty but I dont think its the most unique.
What do you think of this shade? I like it and thinks its pretty but I have many shades like this already.


299- Dr.'s Remedy Nail Lacquer in Bold Baby Blue

 Friday, July 29, 2011

How has your summer been? Mine is flying by way too fast. I have reviewed two of the five Dr.'s Remedy polishes from the Hot Hot Hot collection. Today I will review my favorite of the collection and the lacquer is called Bold Baby Blue.
Bold Blue is a well bold blue! Its super pretty and is a baby blue shimmer with silver infused in the lacquer. Its almost aqua and almost turquoise but its certainly a light blue.

Application was amazing. Dr.'s Remedy polishes apply like butter and this was no exception. I used two coats for safety but you really only need one. I did use a top coat. Even though this is a shimmer it finishes like a foil. I had no problem with brush strokes showing which is always nice.

I really like Dr.'s Remedy polishes and Bold Baby Blue is my new favorite from the brand. This color is awesome and application was a dream! What do you think of this $17 lacquer?


298- Dr.'s Remedy Nail Lacquer in Lovely Lavender

 Monday, July 25, 2011

Its day two of reviewing the five new shades Dr.'s Remedy has come up with for their Hot Hot Hot collection. Today I will be reviewing Lovely Lavender a lavender thats well lovely!

Lovely Lavender is a very pretty muted lavender polish. It kind of reminds me of a shade OPI would have put out in their Pirates collection, its just a dusty color. It looks like a dusty blue to me but the lavender color really kicks in when your in light.

Application was amazing. The quality on this formula really shows. I could have easily got away with one coat but I did two for safety. I also added a topcoat. 

This shade is somewhere between a grey and a dusty blue/lavender. Its very interesting and because it applied so well I think its a keeper. The question is, do you think you would spend the $17? Let me know!

Dr.'s Remedy Enriched Nail Polish is free from harsh toxins to promote healthier, stronger nails and the first-ever nail polish on the market approved by the American Podiatric Association. Dr.'s Remedy is available for $17 online at Remedynails.com or by calling 1-877-323-NAIL.


297- Dr.'s Remedy Hot Hot Hot Collection

 Saturday, July 23, 2011

Dr.'s Remedy is a line of high quality lacquers that is dedicated to using clean, hypoallergenic ingredients. Dr.'s Remedy has made a few different collections in the past and just released their summer 2011 line called the Hot Hot Hot Collection.

Their are 5 shades in the Hot Hot Hot Collection; Tranquil (Tangerine), Lovely (Lavender), Glee (Gold), Nurture (Nude Pink), and Bold (Baby Blue). Each shade is made with tea tree oil, vitamins and wheat protein. These ingredients are better for your skin and the polishes are all made extremely well. 
The shades are produced in a square container with a textured cap. They remind me a lot of the Ulta Professional bottles. I like the size and the square base makes them easy to store. 

I didnt know which polish to try first so I just went with Tranquil the Tangerine lacquer. 
Tranquil is a metallic orange that is saturated and has a gold shimmer. This polish has a yellow flash and I didnt think it would look good on my skintone because of my natural yellow undertone but it actually looks nice! 

Formula was really great. I used two coats and a topcoat and I love the end result. I dont have any polishes like this in my collection and its a really fun summer shade. Im not the biggest orange polish lover but this one has made the cut for me and I will use it and wear it!
What do you think of this orange shade? Is it worth the $17 price tag? For me the quality is just as good as my chanels if not better so I say yes!


296- Kushyfoot Review!

 Friday, July 22, 2011

I am sorry for the breaks in my postings I have been enjoying myself this summer a bit too much! Today I have a great little review for my followers from a brand who's goal it is to make women happy; Kushyfoot

Kushyfoot is the first hosiery brand to incorporate the ancient healing art of Reflexology into their products. The massage action works by providing extra comfort through its 3 dimensional padded and wavy design and it provides a cushion between bare feet and the hard soles of a shoe. 

The Kushyfoot sole helps relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet, thereby helping to relieve stress and fatigue throughout the entire body. These therapeutic socks protect your feet and leave you feeling refreshed all day!

Not only are their products cute and girl friendly but they are doing your feet a favor!

When I go out I like to slip on heels to give me height and make my legs look good but some of my pumps arent exactly the most comfortable for my feet. I like to take off my shoes when I dance but I never have room for extra shoes or socks. Thats specifically why I love Kushyfoot's products so much. They are all super portable and easy to pack.  

I was sent a couple Kushyfoot products to review. I enjoyed my new socks and flats a lot and had a good time reviewing their items. The socks and shoes were all super comfortable. The flats looked a bit too much like slippers for me but they did their job! 

I really liked the flats to go packaging and product but I thought they looked odd on my feet. They might not have been the correct size for me because they were superbig. 

The Foot Covers were awesome though and I would definitely buy them again. These socks are cute and massage your feet! I like the lace pair I got and they came in handy one day when I stuck them in my purse and changed into them when I was breaking in new shoes. The padding is not noticeable to anyone else and feels great with sore feet!
To purchase any of Kushyfoot's products simply visit the Kushyfoot website! You can also stay connected with Kushyfoot by following them on Facebook and Twitter.


295- OPI DS Amethyst

 Sunday, July 17, 2011

A couple days ago I took out one of my OPI DS holo polishes and posted swatches. I had so much fun wearing DS Exclusive that I decided to pull out another holo to review today. This time I chose DS Amethyst. 

DS Amethyst is a super pretty lilac holo that has a fine glitter and really sparkles in the light. It almost looks like a neutral on the nail, its a very pale purple holo and the unique color works for a manicure that is cool but not showy. 
Application was worse than DS Exclusive. DS Amethyst is a bit runnier than I would have preferred. Holos tend to be a bit thinner than other finishes. 

I like DS Amethyst alot but it might not be my favorite of the OPI DS series. What do you think of the nails?


294- Gourmet Gift Basket Camp Care Review!

 Saturday, July 16, 2011

I always get a great feeling when I enter my home and see a huge package labeled with my name. Isnt it nice to get sent something just for you! I used to go to summer camp where some girls were lucky enough to receive huge care packages that reminded them that someone missed them and wanted to give them goodies. Sure I got one or two in my camp years but none as cool as the Camp Care Package from Gourmet Gift Baskets. 

At camp I was the kind of camper who couldn't get enough of arts and crafts. I recently received the opportunity to review a care package from Gourmet Gift Baskets Summer Fun line and I chose the Arts & Crafts package of course! 

The description of this package is: "Our arts and crafts care package will keep your creative kid entertained and enthralled! There is something for every hour of the day in this ideal care package designed to provide quiet and engaging activities alone or to share with friends. Included are beads and bracelet supplies, a bead organizer, stickers, markers, a pencil and sharpener, and a mug to be decorated with velvet designs and a journal to be decorated with foam designs. This care package will be a welcome surprise for the artsy child in your life!"

I really enjoyed all the awesome things that came in this package like:
· Mega Critter Organizer with Neon Beads 
· Alphabet Bead Bracelet Kit with Pastel Heart Beads · Design-A-Mug Velvet 
· Scribble Pad of Paper
· Fine Point Washable Markers
· Journal (60 pages) with Foamies Cover and Spiral Binding  
· 3-D Bug Sticker Shapes
· Dream Catcher
· Bendable PVC Pencil
· Pencil Sharpener

I think my personal favorite part of this basket was the pony beads in the mega critter organizer. I made tons of animal keychains when I got this. So what if Im not a camper anymore, I enjoy crafts!

The basket retails for $39.99 and the customer service for the company is awesome. The basket comes super fast and is so much fun. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who needs to give a care package! The link to the package is here.

What do you think of the package? Totally fun or too much money?
