Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Hardener - Clear

Oct/01/2010

while I do care for my nails and always have polish on them, I had always noticed they were still very brittle. I could bend them even with a base coat, 2-3 layers of polish, plus a top coat. Further, they'd split and peel something awful! I have tried nail strengtheners in the past and they never turned up any results worth a repurchase of the product. I decided for $2.00 I'd try the …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Glitzerland

Sep/28/2010

Glitzerland is a nice soft golden glitter polish. The glitter isn't chunky or big at all. It is just a very fine, almost shimmer, glitter. I applied 2 coats to get the finish I wanted and to make it, basically, opaque. It lasts well on the nails...and when it does start to show wear or chips, because of the color, it isn't very obvious. After I wore this on all the nails for …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Aquafina Flavor Splash Lip Balm

Sep/20/2010

I bought mine in a 4 pack from Dollar General for $2.00, so very cheap for all of them. I will admit, I really picked them up because they are similar to softlips. But, then I remembered having heard from several parties that Aquafina does a great lotion AND lipbalms...so I figured, hey..they're cheap and supposed to be good. Well, They are good in the way of adding moisture to my lips. I …Read more

Polishes - OPI - I'm Suzi & I'm A Chocoholic

Sep/17/2010

I'm Suzi & I'm A Chocoholic was released with the 2010 Swiss Collection. I'm not normally a real big fan of reds and tend to stay away from them in collections. However, this felt like a great fall polish. It is a deeper, almost tinge of brown, kind of red. Warm toned girls will look great in this. It applied nicely. I applied 2 coats for a rich, opaque, true to bottle …Read more

I adore this polish! Its actually different from everything I have in my collection. Its classy and yet had an odd edge. Its somewhere between brown-taupe and greige with (what they're calling) "frost"..but to me comes off more as micro fine shimmers (not glitter) that is golden. Its really quite lovely. I'm so glad I own this, for it will be perfect to carry me through …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Ski Teal We Drop

Sep/09/2010

I'm so glad I purchased this color. I adore teals, be they light or dark. I agree with another poster that this one is more on the blue side than it is on the green side. Its almost a dark, dusty, blue-teal...lol! Perfect for the cooler months, but I think would be just as great during the warm weather. It certainly doesn't come off as a sheer polish, even the first coat..but can be …Read more

Hair Treatments - PANTENE - Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Solutions Silkening Detangler

Sep/09/2010

I don't know if Pantene stopped making my other detangler, but I can't seem to find it in my stores anymore. I did find these, though. So, I had thought I'd give them a whirl. I've used up nearly the whole bottle and am about to purchase more. My husband actually brought this one home the last time and while I don't have medium-thick hair this worked very well. My …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Goin' My Way?

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2010

Goin' My Way? was released in the 2010 Vintage Vixens collections. I, generally, don't care for browns & nude polishes...but I really, really like this one! It comes off more as an antiqued bronze to me. This is a frost finish, but as seen with other frosts from this collection, the frost seem more like a micro fine shimmer. Its also a bronzed color, so it doesn't wash out …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Emerald Fitzgerald

Aug/31/2010

Emerald Fitzgerald was released with the 2010 Vintage Vixens collection. It is a deep teal color with tiny flecks that create the "frost." I don't feel like it is a typical frost, though, in that it doesn't take away from the actual color. I almost feel like it has more a very fine sparkle, rather than frost...but they are listed as being frost. :-) Sometimes when I look …Read more

Aug/29/2010

Best glittery red polish EVER! I can't stop admiring my nails. I don't think there is anything I could add to the revews that hasn't already been said. Its a beautiful ruby polish with glitter swimming all through it. Certainly not lacking in the glitter department! I found 3 coats were required to get true to bottle look. It was a nice thin(er) consistency. Not so much that …Read more
