Hi everyone! I have an interesting polish for you today: Orly Angel Rain. I picked this up at TJMaxx last year and finally got around to swatching it. I have a love/hate relationship with this polish, which I’ll get around to later in this post.
So…you might have noticed that this published this morning and nothing was written! That’s because I was exhausted last night and forgot to check that this was ready to go before I turned off my computer. Yesterday afternoon, I mowed most of my front yard, which took an hour and a half, and I was just beat to all get-out. Anyway, for realsies this time, let’s check out Jesse’s Girl Fire Fly and Glee.
Fire Fly is a golden flake polish that in some lights has a greenish tinge. This is meant to be a topper as it is quite sheer. It has a good consistency and dries satin. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Glee is a sea-green nail polish with golden shimmer. It is more green in real life. This is sheer and applies unevenly. It might stain as well! This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Okay, now that you’ve seen these for yourself, what are your thoughts? I picked these up awhile back from Jesse’s Girl on clearance, and it looks like there are still quite a few polishes on sale for $2!
Morning all! I hope you are having a good week – it’s cold here and raining. I mean, I love spring rain, don’t get me wrong. But when it’s accompanied by cold temps and cold wind, then nah, I wanna pass. Good thing there’s always polish to distract me…speaking of which, I have some Formula X glitter polishes to show you today: Firecracker, Spark, Mind Blowing, Crash, and TNT. Continue reading
I’ve never featured today’s brand on the blog before, which I suppose shouldn’t be that shocking to me – I mean, there’s loads of mainstream brands I’ve never shown on the blog. But somehow when I come across a brand that hasn’t been on the blog, it’s always a surprise. Today I’m showing you Pacifica Fantasea and Abalone.
Fantasea is a bright blue creme polish. Formula was thin; application was slightly uneven. This was almost a One-Coat Wonder. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Abalone is a metallic nail polish that shifts from purple to blue to grey to teal. So pretty in the bottle and on the nail!
My notes literally say: “Holy sheer, Batman!” So…yeah. That wasn’t good. It’s also so thin, it runs away from you and floods your whole nail. Also not good. Annndd it’s super brushstrokey. This is 3 coats and no top coat.
Gosh, I wanted to love Abalone so bad. It is exquisite! But all those negatives end up making it a “no” from me. What do you think? Worth it, or not?
Hi everyone! As you may have figured out from the title of today’s post, I have a pedicure to show you! I’ve used Daisy Sweet Romance [gift] with ILNP Juliette, along with nail gems from Crystal Parade’s nail art gold mix.
If you’re not a fan of pedicures, then don’t look beyond this point! Continue reading
Hi everyone! Today I have another older polish from the Sephora by OPI line – I Only Shop Vintage. I believe I picked this up from Big Lots a long time ago. It’s one of those pretty/ugly colors that you either love or hate so hang on and check out the photos!
I Only Shop Vintage is a camel-toned (haha, I almost typed camel toed!) base polish with gold and green flecks. Formula was thin and it applied sheer. That being said, This is 2 coats plus top coat.
I ain’t gonna lie, I’m on the love spectrum for this polish! It’s weird but Deborah from Love.Varnish turned me onto pretty/ugly colors and I’ve kinda developed an obsession with them! What’s your favorite pretty/ugly nail polish color?
You know, it’s been forever since I’ve had essie on this blog. I do like their polishes, but I tend not to seek them out unless I see them at TJ Maxx (hashtag bargain hunter). So guess where I found essie Bell-Bottom Blues? 😛
Bell-Bottom Blues is a dark blue with glowing blue shimmer, and a slight tinge of purple. Formula was near-perfect consistency, and it dries satin. This was almost a One-Coat Wonder! This is 2 coats plus top coat.
You know, if I knew that every essie polish I picked up would have this great of formula, then I’d be buying a helluva lot more!
