Pretty Serious Cosmetics Ninja-lish-ious swatch + review PLUS Beauty Blog Coalition weekly roundup

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! Just a quick post this morning. The baby has been sick, on and off, all week long and I’m behind in all my blog work. Plus another of my kiddos was sick this week too…sigh. It’s been a long one then. At any rate, let’s take a look at Pretty Serious Cosmetics Ninja-lish-ious!

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Ninja-lish-ious | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Ninja-lish-ious macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Ninja-lish-ious is a pretty dark blue polish with flakes of green and midnight blue. This is 2 coats plus top coat. Formula was a bit thin for my taste.

ILNP Mona Lisa swatch + review PLUS Beauty Blog Coalition weekly roundup

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning all! Well, this weekend has gone a little sideways :/ My two older kids are fighting like cats & dogs lately, and it’s absolutely driving me bonkers. I dunno if it’s spring fever or what, but I’m tearing out my hair here!

ILNP Mona Lisa | Be Happy And Buy Polish

ILNP Mona Lisa macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Onto the polish! ILNP Mona Lisa is a brown “ultra” holographic nail polish. You might remember this from my extend-a-mani with Girly Bits Dreaming Tree.

ILNP Mona Lisa sun photo | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Formula was good on this, no complaints! This is 3 thin coats plus top coat. I will admit that as pretty as this outside photo is…

ILNP Mona Lisa shade photo | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I was a little disappointed with how it looked in regular light. The above photo was taken in the shade, but it looked similar in low light. I understand that it’s probably because of the “ultra holographic” particles in there, but it ended up just being too silvery looking overall for me. Don’t you just hate when a polish is pretty but just disappoints you anyway?

Okay, onto the weekly Beauty Blog Coalition link up!

Vapid Lacquer Surprise I’m Drunk is a neutral holographic nail polish with a bit of rosy glow. This is 2 coats plus top coat. Great formula and coverage! This is currently available in the Vapid Lacquer shop.
