Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Seeing Piink Elephants
Kattiitta1 6/14/2013 5:01:00 AM
I bought this polish on sale at Sephora for $4.50, as the line is being discontinued. Despite the great price, it is a beautiful, opaque bright pink color and I absolutely love it! It is a nice cheery color especially for the summertime. Completely opaque in two coats, which is how I like my polishes to apply. Funny thing is that I saw this shade being reviewed by a blogger who wrote that it took about 3-4 coats for it to be opaque...I didn't experience that at all. Would buy again, especially at the discontinued price.
This is one of my favorite reds from my stash. It is bright, cheery and fun, yet sophisticated at the same time. I bought a back up bottle on eBay for a reasonable price. A worker at Starbucks complimented me on it once. It just goes so well with my skin tone. I am pale with cool undertones for your reference.
I always kept looking at this color in stores and kept putting it down, until I finally bought it one day and tried it out. It is very pretty. It's not a hot pink but a medium pink IMO. I thought I wouldn't like it at first but now that I have it on I think it compliments my skin tone very well. I bought this at a JCPenney salon buy 2 or more OPI for $6 so the price is well worth it.
I tried this color on once before and it looked orange on my hands, but it is probably my skin tone. I prefer other cooler reds like OPI Red. I had to give this one away :(
One word: UNBELIEVABLE. Fast drying, shiny finish...the best fast drying top coat ever! I now have patience doing my nails!
This is very neutral looking and works perfectly on my fair skin. Definitely worth it.
I purchased this at Ulta on the hopes that it wouldn't be another blackened color. To my surprise, the color shows up even more on the nails than in the bottle and it is absolutely gorgeous! You can clearly see the purple color and the little red flecks, making it a perfect shade for the cold winter days and holidays! Would definitely repurchase if it was not a limited edition.
I bought this one on a whim and when I first put it on I thought I wouldn't like it, but it grew on me. It goes on very streaky at first, but with 3 coats it evens out beautifully. Dries super quickly also. Looks especially good on longer nails. I would repurchase.
I love this brand and it's the only one I pretty much use. I have very few of any other brand. I think the price is reasonable for the quality, which is excellent, most of my OPIs have great staying power. There is a forever variety of colors to choose from. I can't get enough of OPI!
I am absolutely nuts about red polish, I grab every new one I can! Just purchased Little Red Wagon and love it! It is a deep, true blood red and looks great. I think it goes with every skin tone and can be worn year round. A definite repurchase!
Bought this shade in a clearance rack at a beauty supply store. The shade is a beautiful springy light shimmery peach. Looks nice on short fingernails but on toes the color is not very noticeable (on mine at least). Would not repurchase because it is not such a noticeable shade.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - TimeWise 3-in-1 cleanser C/O

After being a faithful Lancome user for years, I've been using nothing but Mary Kay products since 05 and cannot use anything else now. This has got to be the best cleanser I've ever used, and the price is great, especially at the 50% level. I bought this from a friend who was a rep, and after using it I got hooked and became a personal use rep so I can get these products for half off. Love it and highly recommend giving it a try!
I bought this color on a whim, and never tried it on until tonight, a few days prior to Halloween. I was searching for a dark polish to wear for Halloween and happened to grab this one, not caring whether or not I liked it, I just wanted something dark for a day. To my surprise, I liked it! It is a great alternative to a pure black color, which can be too "in your face", especially for a fair skinned person like myself. The first coat is very watery, which disappointed me at first, but with 3 coats you get great shiny coverage. Dries very quickly also! I took off a lippie for the coverage, I expected a thick cream instead of having to use 3 coats. It is worth a try. I just wouldn't repurchase only because it is not a shade I would wear all the time.
This has got to be one of the best OPI I tried so far! I've worn this on my tips for 4 days without any chipping at all, only slight tipwear on the 5th day...and I've washed dishes, typed, etc. Gotta Get Pink! reminds me of Mod About You but less bright and better wear and coverage (Mod is VERY STREAKY). I also had no trouble applying GGP, slightly streaky on the first coat, but easier on the 2nd and 3rd. For complete coverage I used 3 coats. I even purchased a backup. If you like Mod About You I recommend you pick one of these up if you can find it. Recommended!
I've been in love with this shade for a long time, and usually reach for it for summer pedicures. I see it as a bright pinkish watermelon color. Would definitely repurchase!
