Baroness X La Luz 2.0 nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! I hope you are rested up from the Fourth of July. It has been blazingly hot here, so I’ve been holed up in the house, not wanting to move. Today I have a polish by Baroness X: La Luz 2.0; so named because the first La Luz faded. Well it turns out that there’s a pigment that caused La Luz 2.0 to fade as well. No matter, it’s still super pretty and I wanted to share it with you again!

Formula was sheer but had good consistency; it dries satin. This is 2 coats plus top coat. But look at that beautiful green shimmah! ❤

The Color Box: Blue Edition with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, Baroness X, Blush Lacquers, Tonic Nail Polish, SuperMoon Lacquer swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonShoot – is it really Saturday already? Dang – I had so many plans for this week with my kids and I think we got one accomplished (up for a sunrise on Monday). Oh well, we’ve got all summer to do stuff, right? How about some summery blue polishes from The Color Box: Blue Edition today? For some reason I’ve really been digging on blue polishes lately so I had to buy this box when it came out. (Psst, the pink edition is currently available for pre-order, and it’s featuring one of my favorite brands, Bad Bitch Polish!)

Baroness X Fire Opal over Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonAfternoon all! This post published this morning with nothing to show for it. Oops. That seems to be happening a lot lately but I gotta tell you, having a baby that gets me up all hours of the night, plus a toddler and 2 older kids that get up early in the morning – man, it’s freaking exhausting! This is why God created coffee. 😛 Anyway, how about I finally show you Baroness X Fire Opal over Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In?

Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started with Sephora by OPI What Film Noir You In? This was a hard polish to capture but it’s a grape purple that shifts to a red-toned purple and also to orange. It also has a hint of yellow sparkle. Formula was floody and sheer and applied patchy. 😦 This is 3 coats and no top coat. Continue reading

Random Raindrop Nail Art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, Femme Fatale, Polished Vino

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! It’s the first official day of summer vacation and my goodness I’m not ready for the heat of the summer yet! We seem to be having warmer than usual weather here in my part of Montana so I’m dying of heat already – which, btw, we don’t have central air conditioning in my house so it can get unbearable! I’m wishing for some rain but raindrop nail art with Baroness X, CrowsToes Nail Color, and Femme Fatale Cosmetics will have to do.

Press Sample buttonMorning everyone! I am so excited to show you these photos of Baroness X Fire Opal with my giveaway nail polish duo of Be Happy and Buy Polish [press sample]. I wanted to show you them yesterday in the giveaway post, but that post was getting a little too long. I made the decision to hold on until today!
