Envy the Adventure is from OPI's The Nutcracker and The Four Realms collection in late 2018, and it's availble in their standard lacquer as well as the Infinite Shine line. This review is for the standard lacquer.

I've been looking for a flattering green creme for a long time. I can wear greens, but they can't be too blue or too yellow, and they can't be too …

First, there's a lot to like about this polish. It's a beautiful, medium-to-medium-dark, purple-leaning wine shimmer. It's also potentially a one-coater, though I find I prefer two coats for full-depth of colour. It last as long as you'd normally expect from a shimmer by OPI, especially with a good top coat. So, yes, nice polish, overall.

And there are some things I …

Picked this up on a whim. I have a weakness for indigo (blue-purple) polishes, and this one has a fair bit of hype. I actually have a couple other blue-with-pink-shimmer polishes, but this is nowhere near a dupe of those.

In the bottle, this looks like a violet-blue, and the pink/violet shimmer is very, very visible. On the nail, I find the shimmer much more subdued. To me, it's …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Pure 18k White Gold & Silver Topcoat

2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I picked up a bottle of this for about a third of the usual asking price. I'm glad I didn't pay more. I'm kind of sorry I paid as much as I did. It was a very expensive polish when it first came out, probably because the foil-like glitter is 18k white gold (how that works, I don't know, because real white gold jewellery is plated with rhodium). It also has silver pieces, but I …Read more

Well, this is definitely a unique polish, no doubt about that. It's metallic, but also multichrome, but also holo glitter. Yes, all those things. Online swatches really don't do it justice.

The metallic base of this polish ranges from a pink-lavender tinted warm silver through a full on gold, depending on the lighting. And then there's the holo glitter scattered …

Polishes - Orly - Nail Polish - Turn It Up

This polish has a clear base and is absolutely packed with bright, multi-coloured confetti style round and hex shaped glitter, ranging from small to medium in size. The colours include saturated (almost neon but not quite) yellow, blue, and green, plus less saturated pink and a bit of orange, and a smattering of small white pieces. I'm actually finding it quite hard to describe this polish …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Nail Polish: PixieDust - Alice

5.0

5 months ago

One of Zoya's Pixie Dust polishes, this is a textured matte glitter. The base is a medium blue-purple that I would call periwinkle. The glitter is pink (fuchsia?) and blue and fairly fine.

Easy to apply, nice consistency, builds to opacity in two coats. Good wear time, even without a top coat (note that a top coat will change the appearance considerably, and Zoya claims you …

I grabbed this for $2 in a bargain clearance, so at least I'm not a lot out of pocket on this one. This is a specialty top coat, which I could tell by looking at it, and it's about a thousand times prettier in the bottle than on the nail. In the bottle it's a golden shimmer with a strong pink edge. On the nail, it's barely perceptible at one coat, a little more visible at two …Read more

Polishes - Cirque Colors - 'Memento Mori'

Memento Mori is a perfect one-coat black creme. Applies like a dream, you can rework it a fair bit without causing any bald spots or streaks, and the finish is gorgeous. I can't say enough good things about this polish. My absolute favorite black polish of all time.

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Christmas Gone Plaid

5.0

A nice, rich, deep green creme that doesn't ever go into off-black the way a lot of dark polishes can do.

Very opaque, and good formula that self-levels. I thought I might get it in one coat, but my brush technique isn't quite good enough. That's all right, though, because the second coat brings out the rich colour fully and smooths into place beautifully …
