Feb/01/2014

I just purchased Orly Matte Top Coat for about $10 (Canadian) at the local drugstore. The only reason I bought it was because I wanted to try something different than Essie "matte about you".

Overall:
If you like a semi matte finish go with Orly Matte Top Coat, it dries slowly.
If you like a dull/lusterless effect go with Essie Matte, it dries faster . It is …

If you loved Opi Warm & Fozzie you will love The World Is Not Enough! Its this beautiful foil texture without the coarse grains of glitter. The swatches online aren't your good indicators of how amazing this color is live, on your face.

If you don't want to use 4 coats of this polish to get it fully opaque, apply a coat of a neutral color ( i used gray suede by revlon) …

Polishes - OPI - Tomorrow Never Dies

Nov/30/2012

OPI's "Tomorrow Never Dies" is that type of shade (more blue?, more purple?) that you'd better swatch (if you can) at the nail salon, most of the images online are "ok" but this time they didn't compare to the actual "on your own nails". It's a beautiful color (which is more purple than blue)!! I didn't have any other color similar to TND so …Read more

Essie's "Penny Talk"!!! My hunt for rose gold nail polish is over. Since last year I've been looking for it , I found some like Orly rage, DL's Glamorous Life, quo's First Class, N by OPI's it starts with me, but all of them seemed to be either too expensive or too shiny.

For months I was ignoring Penny Talk because it sure doesn't look like …

And again I loooooooooove Essie's brand, the cute bottle, and I don't mind the small & short brush. The price... in my local drugstore in Canada Essie retails for about $12, and about $9 at the competition. It adds up quickly when you are an avid nail polish fan. : ( Maybe not too expensive for those who buy one or two bottles a year. : )

1) Color: gorgeous, chic …

China Glaze Trendsetter it's the changing fall foliage from green to yellowish. It's beautiful!!! I do tend to keep my nails short, I also accessorize a little bit wisely just to bring more live to my hands: I put on 1 ring and 1 bracelet that complement "Trendsetter" just beautifully and that's why I get lots of compliments whenever I wear it. : ) …Read more

You know you are a nail polish freak when you read bad reviews about a certain nail polish color and still go ahead and purchase it. I just had to have Essie's "A Crewed Interest" because I liked this shade a lot.

The taupe shade "Chinchilly" is one of my favorites shades for any occasion. It's modern, smart, and unexpected.

I had no trouble with application, it wasn't streaky at all and two coats were enough to achieve the opaque look. It was super easy to clean up any mess around my cuticles and the two coats dried quick. Applied on clean, treated nails it will last up to …

Jun/23/2012

I've been infatuated with the mixture brown/black/navy blue lately, so no surprise I have Butter London's Marrow.

I only own 2 bottles by this brand due to the price tag (CND $17.00) and also most colors are not too anusual: "Marrow" and "All Hail The Queen" are, in my opinion , really modern and creative shades. : )

The package is lovely, the …

Jun/09/2012

I've seen the FingerPaints brand at Sally's but never bothered buying any, the colors were ok probably because I already have a nail polish collection and the colors on display seemed too familiar. BUT, I was weak last time while at Sally's and bought one FP bottle on sale and got second free. The dark indigo blue "Art You Blue?" and a nice warm chocolate "It …Read more
