Makeup look with Glamour Doll Eyes, Jesse’s Girl, Jordana Sweet Cream Matte

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! Lately I’ve noticed that reviewing makeup notwithstanding, I’ve fallen into a rut with my makeup looks – I tend to play it safe with neutrals & browns or neutrals & purples. I mean, yeah, play to your strengths but I need to stretch myself a bit.

Baroness X Sir Cockicorn vs ILNP The Magician: how do they match up?

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].

Morgan Taylor Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonUgh you guys. 😦 Do you ever have a polish that you just want to love because it’s so darn pretty but in reality is the worst, most awful applying polish ever?? Yes, that’s today’s experience with Morgan Taylor Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My.

Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My is a dark purple based polish with glitters of purple, blue, lilac (somehow no red though? lol). Formula was so gloopy and clumpy. It does dry textured because of the glitters. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.

Even looking at my pictures, I really love it! It just goes to show you that you can’t always judge a polish by its pictures. 😦

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Sugar finish nail polishes swatches + review

Mint Sugar is a minty-green textured polish with gold shimmer. Formula is of good consistency. This is 2 coats.

Pink Sugar is a bright pink textured polish (no shimmer). Formula is of good consistency but uneven application. This is 2 coats.

These are nice additions to my collection but I wish Pink Sugar would have had some sort of shimmer in it. :/ Your thoughts?

Pretty & Polished Her Majesty Royal Purple + Brisky Business swatches + review

Morning everyone! Another Wednesday is here – yay? LOL! 😛 Today I have two polishes from Pretty & Polished to show you: Her Majesty, Royal Purple and Brisky Business.

Pretty & Polished Her Majesty, Royal Purple | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Her Majesty, Royal Purple [gift] is a blue-tinged purple polish. Formula was wonderful, it goes on evenly and dries matte. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Pretty & Polished Brisky Business over Her Majesty, Royal Purple color shift | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Brisky Business is from the Winter 2016 collection [my partial review]. This is a blurple based shimmer polish that shifts from purple to blue with a tinge of red, with color shifting flakes. Formula was a bit thin; it does dry matte. This is 1 coat plus top coat over HMRP. (Please excuse the huge chip in my bottle, Mrs Butterfingers over here.)

Though I was expecting a bit more from Brisky Business, it still is a gorgeous polish – well both of them are, to be honest!
