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.

Morgan Taylor Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

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. 😦

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 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!

Formula X Brain Power swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! I hope you are having a good Friday. 🙂 Today I have a polish that you’ve seen on the blog before, underneath Formula X Alchemy III. Let’s take a look at Brain Power by itself!

Formula X Brain Power | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Brain Power is a camel brown creme polish. Though the formula is thin, it self-levels nicely; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

It’s nice to have such a neutral polish in my polish arsenal but I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for this!

Formula had a good thickness to it; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.

I do like the occasional pink polish and this one has just enough oomph and pizzazz to keep my interest. What do you think of it?
