Orly Secret Password swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi there my fantastic readers! I haven’t featured Orly polish on here for like….ever so I shall fix that today. This is Orly Secret Password.

Orly Secret Password macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Secret Password is a purple based polish with golden and bronze flecks. This was so sheer, and thin, and uneven. This is 3 coats and no top coat. It’s so pretty, I wanted to love it. I really did. But the sheerness drove me over the edge. If I did use undies for it, I don’t know that it would look right anyway because of how uneven it applied. Womp Womp.

Well, what do you think? Worth it or not?

Sinful Colors Be Yourselfie nail polish collection swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! Here are three polishes that I picked up on clearance and didn’t even realize they were part of the same collection! Cool Credit, Clad in Plaid, and Rock the Bow are part of the Be Yourselfie collection. This is actually a 4-piece collection, Walgreens didn’t have Gossip Boss.

Sinful Colors Cool Credit | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Cool Credit is a cool blue-grey polish. Formula was a little thin and uneven. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Sinful Colors Clad in Plaid | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Clad in Plaid is a sexy red polish! Formula is a little thin. This is not as orange as my photo shows. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Sinful Colors Rock the Bow | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Rock the Bow is a blue with tinge of grey polish. Formula was floody and hard to even out. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

This was a great haul for $1.50 total! 😛 When’s the last time you scored good on a clearance buy?

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon all! I’m feeling accomplished today because I’ve been slowing clearing out my backlog of polishes that I’ve bought and never swatched. So instead of probably over 300 polishes, I think I’m down to about 150. I know, I know…. I have a problem. But today how’s about we look at Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish Crocuses in the Snow, Wildflowers on the Hill, and Fields of Lavender. Continue reading

Failed Camouflage Nail Art with OPI nail polishes

Morning everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. 🙂 Today I have some camouflage nail art for you – or rather, failed camo nail art. I’m not quite sure where I went wrong but the end result was still pretty, even if it wasn’t what I wanted.

camouflage nail art with OPI nail polishes | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I used 2 coats and no top coat OPI Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! on my thumb, pointer, and pinky fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I started off with 2 coats of OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less. Then I used My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Skull & Glossbones, Samoan Sand, and N!N!OF! to create the non-camouflage look.

Like I said, the end result is nice, just not what I wanted. What do you think of it?
