LUV! If you wear the smokey eye / nude lip look, GET THIS! It's a gorgeous "cool toned, metallic beige-gold shimmer". It is perfect with my tanned, cool toned olive skin, blonde hair, and brown eyes. It gives me that Bond Girl look ala Gold Finger's Golden Girl. LUVVVVVVVV it. It's also a great way to tone down/nude out darker lipsticks. And it looks fabulous over my …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Desire

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2007

This is the perfect white tip color for a french mani, if you find that the stark whites are just too "White Out" -ish, and the "soft whites" are too yellow/cream -ish. Desire is a semi sheer white; a "muted white", if there can be such a shade. It's perfect for my MMM cool-neutral olive skintone. Yet it's equally as pretty on me when I'm faux tanned …Read more

Screenqueen. sigh Lustres! I loathe them, but had to give this one a try, as it seemed so pretty online. After buying it and trying it on, I really want to give this 0 stars, but I feel bad because the member below seems to really like this lipstick. Therefore, I'm guessing there are those out there on whom this shade DOES actually show up. ? I'm going to give it a 2 star rating, just …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Tiger Tiger

Tiger Tiger from the Raquel Welch Icon Collection, is gorgeous! It's a creme formulation, and light/medium in shade. The color is a warm yellow-peach toned "tan" or beige-nude. The amplified formulas are heavenly on (rich and creamy, w/o feeling heavy or greasy).

I would compare the color of Tiger Tiger to MAC Underplay, with Tiger Tiger being about 1 shade lighter, and …

Polishes - OPI - Up Front and Personal

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/05/2006

LUV! Up Front and Personal is an uber sheer platinum gold (silvery cool gold, not "yellow") micro glitter. It leaves your nails glistening, as opposed to in your face-type glitter. I find this shade to be the perfect understatedly elegant gold np shade for my special occasion wear. It's very similar to my all time favorite OPI nail color: Society Island Sterling Silver, as well as …Read more

Polishes - OPI - The Grape Lakes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2006

Against my neutral/cool toned MMM Olive skin, Grape Lakes is the perfect amethyst np shade. GL is a muted medium-dark grape purple, with an icy cool pearl finish. I cannot wear clear toned purples against my olive skin, as it looks too harsh on me. However, the grey'd muted tone to GL makes it softer/much more flattering on my olive skin. The brown tones, evident in the bottle, are lost once …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Skin Deep

Nov/07/2006

Skin Deep is a neutral pink shade: a light-medium warm pink with a subtle icy grey'd pearl shimmer. The very slight grey'd tone to this pink keeps it from being bubble-gum bright, and makes it very wearable as a tip color for me, even in a business setting. It's girly, without looking teeny bopper-ish/Barbie. The very slight muted tone is perfect against my olive skintone (pure …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Legs Celebrate

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2006

Legs Celebrate! is part of the OPI Holiday 2006 offering. Of all the nps I have ever tried/owned (I own over 300), this shade is the absolute worst I have ever tried on my skintone. I have light/medium, neutral/cool olive skin w/ a bit of faded tan left. I can wear warm shades easily (coppers, golds, rusts, cinnamon browns, etc), but Legs Celebrate was just horrid on me. Even a layer of faux tan …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Vanity Fairest

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2006

Perfect "cloudy" semi-sheer, pale ivory pink, for when you need something a bit cooler in tone than OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy. I'd say that VF is a cool-neutral tone. It doesn't make my tips look yellowish, as some of the peachier ivories sometimes can. Vanity Fairest came in perfect use for me today, since my nail tips were a bit stained from sunless tanner. Though I got …Read more
