Polishes - OPI - Don't Take Yosemite for Granite

2.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

Don't Take Yosemite for Granite is a shimmer grey from the California Dreaming collection. It was easily opaque in 2 coats and gave me no issue in application.

But the polish chipped on the first day of wear every time I have tried it. The color itself was also a let down. I found it to be very unflattering with a dirty undertone. It was so unflattering that I have gotten rid of it …

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

3.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I have some mixed feelings about Seche Vite. Currently I am on my second bottle but there are some things that really annoy me about this top coat.

Yes it dries fast. Yes it's very glossy. Heck it can hide all kinds painting mistakes, touch ups and ridges. Does it make my manicure last longer? Not at all.

As many reviewers have mentioned. It gets substantially thicker …

Polishes - KL Polish - Zoey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

KL polish has been recently discontinued so this color may be a little difficult to find. So for those of you looking for a mainstream dupe, the closest that I have in my collection is Essie's Ladylike which will certainly give off the same look. In the bottle Ladylike is a tiny bit lighter. I would say 95% color dupe, although the KL Polish has a better formula and brush.

Zoey is …

Polishes - China Glaze - Grinchworthy

5.0

8 months ago

Grinchworthy is from the china glaze Christmas collection, but i think its true calling is as the ultimate St Patrick's Day party green.

This is a full coverage glitterbomb polish. You will get the sponged on glitter look with 2 regular coats. Another reviewer says it's a green jelly but my impression was that it's a clear jelly and all the color is entirely glitter …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - I'm on a Sushi Roll

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I'm on a Sushi Roll is from OPI's Spring 2019 Tokyo collection. It's a green toned turquoise and is greener of the 2 blue greens in the collection. If your wondering how it compares to "Closer than you might Belim", Belim is noticeably lighter in color but they are in the same color family.

This was almost fully opaque in one coat but I prefer it with 2 coats …

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Vodka & Caviar

10 months ago

The polish was recently re-released as an opi 2018 "favorites" in the infinite shine formula. So if this is your favorite red you should stock up now.

I will admit I picked this up because it has a great name. The red itself is a medium true red. And I know people are very particular about their reds. This is not a unique color and you can easily dupe it, so don't cry …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Mooning

11 months ago

Essie Mooning is a beautiful grey blue from their "Wild Nudes" collection. This is a very flattering subtle blue that would look good with jeans.
Application was a breeze, it self leveled very well. Opaque in 2 coats, shiny without a top coat. The bottle I have has that skinny brush but it leveled so well that the little brush didn't give me trouble.

It looks a …

Polishes - ZOYA - Pixie Dust - Solange

Solange is from Zoya's 2013 summer collection. It's still available online but you probably won't find it in stores.
The color is a light yellow gold and it looks amazing on the nails.
This is one of Zoya's textured Pixi Dust polishes. It's actually my first Pixi Dust and I'm surprised by how much I like it. I think the texture just makes the polish look …

Polishes - China Glaze - Pilates Please

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2018

Pilates Please is a candy melon color from the China Glaze Chic Physique Spring 2018 collection.
It covers pretty well in 2 coats, a perfect manicure will probably take 3. I found that this color dried slowly and dents easily while it's curing. A quick dry top coat would help a lot with that.

The color is really cute and very flattering on my hands.

Polishes - OPI - Now Museum, Now You Don’t

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2018

Now Museum Now you Don't is a red shimmer from the Lisbon collection. I actually felt like this was more of a fall color but now it's fall so here we are! Reds are all season colors but the shimmer made this feel festive. The tone of this is more of an earthy red.
I found this on sale and I couldn't pass it up. Personally I hardly ever reach for reds but I found this to be …
