I can’t remember what group it was but someone asked for a comparison of these two polishes. Since I happened to have the both of them, I polished one hand with Apophis and one hand with Mirabilis. In this photo above, Apophis is the top hand, and Mirabilis the bottom. Continue reading
Morning everyone! I’ll be honest, I can’t even remember where I picked this nail polish up from. It was either Sally Beauty Supply or Walmart. It just intrigued me in the store and I had to buy it!
Isn’t it just pretty? I love when OPI does polishes like this because it reminds me of all the really oldie-but-goodie polishes* from way back when.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Yellow Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Coral Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Mint Pastel, 2 coats
All of these pretty much had the same formula, not too streaky but not the best either. YMMV.
Do you ever type or write a word so much that it looks like you’re spelling it wrong even though you know you’re not? Yeah, that’s how I feel with the word “pastel” right now. 😀 At any rate, I picked these three up from my local Hot Topic a few months ago and I finally got around to swatching them! You might remember the Mint Pastel from my polka dots and roses nail art last month.
Yellow Pastel, 2 coats
Coral Pastel, 2 coats
Mint Pastel, 2 coats
You may think this looks similar to Sinful Colors State-mint from a few days ago, but this is definitely green, and not a Tiffany minty color like State-mint.
Can you tell I’m ready for spring?! Seriously, more snow this weekend too. I looked on my Facebook memories from 4 years ago, and my kids were wearing shorts and light windbreaker jackets. I’m jealous of past me. Oh wait…I was pregnant 4 years ago. Nope, I’ll take snow over being pregnant. 😛

Continuing on our journey of new Sinful Colors nail polishes, I had picked up 3 of the Sinful Mattes at first and swatched them on my staycation. Then afterwards, looking for other polishes, I just decided I had to get 3 more. 😀 Continue reading
These two polishes were gifts to me from Vicki (among others!) and I’m so grateful for them! I’ve never tried this polish line out but I know I’m going to be looking to buy some now.
Desert Sand, 3 coats. Unfortunately, this was super sheer, even at 3 coats. It’s surprising to see some holo from a more mainstream brand, I just wish it had a bit more punch.
Dark Earth, 2 coats. The formula on this was a bit thin, but it covered well in 2 coats.
So a couple of days ago I showed you the bottle photos for the Sinful Colors Naughty Nudes and now I’m back with swatches! Some of these do look different, depending on the light (as I’m sure you noticed in the bottle photo post). Hold on to yer hats, this is a long post!
Oh my goodness! I picked up 6 more of the Sally Hansen Mega Strength polishes yesterday (have you seen my review yet of the others?) and they are flipping gorgeous. I can’t wait to show you. But for now, let’s check out how my wear test on Persis-tint did! First a reminder of how Persis-tint looked the first day:
A few notes on application: I did have quite a few bubbles showing in my manicure, so that’s something to be aware of. Also, the top coat is NOT a quick dry top coat and as such, it took forever to dry!! But once it dried, it was like iron.
This is how my manicure looked after 5 days, which included working out, showering, washing dishes, changing diapers, shoveling snow, and all sorts of other activities. As you can see, I had a couple of chips, some tip wear, and one nail was trying to start peeling off – but overall, really held up well! Especially since I’ve been having a hard time with nail polish lately.
