Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2014

This is by no means the perfect top coat, but it's as close to perfection as I'll ever get. True to its name, it dries SUPER FAST. Less than 30 seconds after application, I can actually use my hands without ever having to worry about destroying all my hard work. The formula is thick and gel-like - I can definitely see it sitting on top of my nails. It also stinks to high heaven but only …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Muir Muir on the Wall

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/17/2014

I'm a huge fan of dark, vampy polishes but Muir Muir On The Wall can't hold a candle to Every Month Is Oktoberfest, Midnight In Moscow etc. Admittedly, it is an interesting polish - it's a chameleon of colours. Sometimes it's a beautiful deep purple, or a dark chocolate with red shimmer, or it can even boast a flash of green! I'm not a huge fan of duochrome, but this …Read more

Polishes - OPI - OPI Ink

Dec/16/2014

Ink is tied with Every Month Is Oktoberfest as my top OPI polish. One of the most amazing things about EMIO is how the first coat is this absolutely gorgeous purple, and that's the colour I've been lusting for ever since! Ink is the closest that will ever come to it. This is a really beautiful and interesting colour. Depending on the lighting it can be a deep, rich, velvety purple or it …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Chicago Champagne Toast

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/11/2014

To my surprise, I actually really like this. At first I just wanted to pick up Meet Me On The Star Ferry, but I couldn't stop looking at the swatch for Chicago Champagne Toast so I grabbed both. It's a very pretty dusty rose pink with a mirror-like shine minus the sparkles - very work friendly. I can understand the "old lady" reviews because even though I'm young …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Meet Me On The Star Ferry

Meet Me On The Star Ferry is from the Hong Kong collection and this is one polish I have yet to find a dupe for. It's pink and mauve with lots of shimmer and a slightly frosty/metallic finish! It really stands out in the sunlight, like a Lancome Juicy Tube - very shiny! It's a very girly polish - I especially love wearing it in spring/summer, but it's not too extreme for work. It …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2014

Summer is coming around in Melbourne and I really wanted a powder foundation. I'd been using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium last summer, but wanted more coverage. The last two compact foundations I tried were by Chanel and Shiseido - good in their own way, but not perfect. Studio Fix is well beloved by MAC fans, so I decided to give it a try. I'm Asian with fair skin and a …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Vampsterdam

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2014

I admit, the first thing that attracted me to Vampsterdam was it's name but the road to love was super hard. It took me five attempts before I could finally perfect its application. Formula wise, Vampsterdam sucks. I find OPI polishes require two coats to achieve full opacity, but this one needs a minimum of THREE and IMHO looks best at FOUR! Despite the tedious application process, it does …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Midnight in Moscow

5.0

Dec/04/2014

This is everything I hoped Everyday Is Oktoberfest, Muir Muir on the Wall and Vampsterdam would be! This is the most multi-dimensional polish in my collection - never looks the same under different lighting. Under low light, it looks so vampy, but under the sun it becomes this beautiful dark purple/red/chocolate brown with glittery shimmer. I love how it reminds me of my partner's old car - …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Every Month Is Oktoberfest [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2014

This is my favourite polish from the Germany collection. Granted the road to love was rough because I seriously believe my first bottle was a dud. It was thick, goopy and looked like mud on my nails. It lacked every bit of dimension I was hoping for. Fast forward one year and I've repurchased another bottle after unsuccessfully trying to even remotely achieve the same effect with Midnight In …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2014

I wanted to love this. I really wanted to love this. In swatches and photos, it looks like the most amazing shade of black/purple/red. But on my fair skin, it just looks black and dimension-less. Can't fathom the hype.
