Polishes - Rescue Beauty Lounge - Recycle

I was super excited when I ordered this polish. The colour looked so rich and different. First off it was a pain to order as enourmous duty fees were charged after delivery (like a month later, claiming they do this in order to expedite shipping) and it took much longer than was expected.
Once I got the package I was happy to see Recycle. A deep, dark but not blackened green! I have now …

Polishes - OPI - Baby It's "Coal" Outside

I love this polish! It is deep and broody without being boring. The shimmer just glows through the dark charcoal polish. It reminds me of the moonlight on a frozen lake. The application is great, not streaky at all.

Polishes - Nicole - You're A Star

Nicole You're A Star is a shimmery, fine glitter packed, icy-silvery white polish. In the bottle you can see the densely packed glitter. On the nail it appears as more of a shimmer. It is a cool white, leaning almost to a silver. The application was fantastic, not streaky at all. Three coats were needed for full coverage (I used this for a pedicure) but I think you could get away with just …Read more

Polishes - Nicole - Show You Care

Feb/02/2008

When I saw Show You Care on display I thought it looked like a beautiful, deep shimmery eggplant. In the bottle that is. On my nails it is a shimmery, frosted purple with touches of gray in it. I am not sure I love this polish. It also took forever to dry, even with quick dry topcoat and drip dry drops I woke up with sheet smudges.
This polish is similar in colour to OPI LPAM. It seems to …

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Vive Non-Stop Volume Conditioner

Feb/02/2008

I got this conditioner from a friend who had gotten it as a sample. It seems to lather well and the smell is not bothersome. I don't find it dries my hair out or makes it do weird things. I use this on days when I want to wear my hair curly. I have really thick hair that is below my shoulders. Usually when I hot roller my hair, the curls are pulled out before the drive to work is over. When …Read more

Polishes - Nicole - Merry Merlot

Merry Merlot is a deep red with warmish gold tones and tones of microglitter in it. This colour was part of the Holiday 2007 Nicoles in Canada. The glitter in this polish gives it amazing depth. Even though there are warm tones in this polish I thought it looked great on me. I have pale, cool toned and very pink skin.
The wear on this polish was great. I got nearly a full 5 days before any …

Polishes - Nicole - Boys n Berry

In the bottle Boys 'n Berry seems to be a duochromatic purple and greenish yellow. On the nail it comes out a muddy, slightly warm purple. I had a hard time getting this one to work on me as a manicure. I think it might be better suited to someone with warmer tones and less pink in their skin tone.

Polishes - Nicole - Empower-mint

In the bottle this is a gorgeous, iridescent, shimmery mint green. On the nail it is so sheer that even with 4 coats it is not opaque. I love the colour and can't seem to part with this one but I can't wear it alone either. Love it layered over blues, greens and black.
Empower-mint wears great, with a good base and top coat I get 3 -5 days no problem.

Polishes - OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark

A gorgeous, glossy, deep black violet colour. This is the same colour as some "Queen of the Night" tulips that I planted last year. It is black in non direct lights but when the light hits you see the deep purple. This colour is not for the faint of heart but it looks phenomenal against my pale skin. The wear of LPAD is great.
