Charme Sunset

I got this beauty as part of Charme Box from the Daily Charme shop in Etsy. Definitely check them out if you are interested in cool indie nail polish, and beautiful charms for reasonable price!

This nail polish is really dense, and is packed with lots of glitters. There are at least three types of glitters that I can identify, one of which is holographic hexagonal glitter. It truly looks like the content of a treasure box. 🙂

Butter London Bobby Dazzler

I receive this polish as a birthday present last year. It’s an awesome polish and very different from other polish that I have tried! The metallic bits in this polish is finer than other metallic polishes that I have used. If put on correctly, it will really look like a silver mirror (that doesn’t reflect anything back…) This is definitely the smoothest polish that I own. Thank you Carol!!!

When I use this polish, I have to make sure that I smoothed out my nails. Otherwise, all the dents and crease will show up because this polish is very fine and very smooth.

The color is goldish-silver (or white gold, if you will).

SpaRitual Kindness

Standard

I haven’t seen too many reviews of this particular polish, which means there needs to be more post about this polish!

I found this polish at a local Ross store in a two set for $6.99. I’m still in the process of getting to know this brand, and am not in love with the brand. But I love trying SpaRitual polishes when I get the chance because their formulas are vegan and the polishes are considered 3 Free (meaning it doesn’t contain no Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde). Additionally, it doesn’t contain formaldehyde resin.

SpaRitual Kindness

I used base coat, and only one coat of Kindness for this! Kindness is pumpkin orange, with generous bits of golden glitters. Yum! It’s a strong color, but not flashy, but gentle.

I am in love with this polish! I love how it’s sparkly, but also glossy at the same time. I think it would be a wonderful color for the summer or fall, and I think it definitely would be good for ladies who want colors that are more sophisticated and mature.

Orly Elsbeth’s Rose

I got some nice nail polish from a Ross visit yesterday and got to try one last night.

This is Orly’s Elsbeth’s Rose. I feel like this could also be categorized as Color of the Year- Radiant Orchid. (Personally, I don’t really know how to deal with Pantone’s color winners… Emerald went out of fad really quickly last year!) Anyway, I used to own a Sephora OPI nail polish color this color, that I liked much, but had to throw away because it got too sticky, so I am happy!

I would also label this pink as Barbie Pink because it seems to be very similar to the pink used in Barbie boxes!

The photo is of base coat and two coats of Elsbeth’s Rose. I don’t think it shows up well in the photo but this polish has a pearly finish. The polish itself is pretty opaque, and one might have been good, but I used two. And as always, Orly brushes are always good, and like other Orly formulas, this one runs kind of runny, but at the same time, it’s astonishingly opaque.

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Orly Soul Mate

Standard

Here is Orly Soul Mate, one of my favorite red polish!

I only applied one coat here because I was planning to put a glitter top coat on top of it so I didn’t want thick polish for the color base. But still, one polish was enough for a good coverage!

It’s very easy to work with, and pretty thin but at the same time pretty opaque.

I was lucky in that I was able to buy this for only $3.50 at T.J.Maxx. (Yay!)

 

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat All Yarned Up!

Standard

I received this as a present from the wonderful children’s ministry pastor at my church! I never thought I would have one of the ‘feathery’ effect one, but here it is!
The polish lies pretty flat. Below are photos of the polish by itself, three, four coats. It does give good coverage, but I still minded that the edges weren’t completely covered…

I searched for examples of how other people have used a Fuzzy Coat series. Most people used it has a top coat effect over another nail polish. So I tried using this with orange… (Two coat)

And here is over white polish, two coats.

I know the polish has ‘yarn’ in its name and this polish does remind me of a sweater I probably had a while ago. 😛

Additional note: it gets messy at the time of removal!!!!

Julie G Dance in the Dark

Standard

Another Julie G nali polish review!

I stopped by a Rite Aid around work, and realized that this store carries more selection in additional to the Gumstop series. Dance in the Dark is one of the two Julie G polish that I picke up that day.

This is two coats of Royal Rebel. Jesse Girl site, which sells the Julie G nail polish, describe this nail polish as a deep blue polish. And yes, this blue is very deep, but very bright at the same time! And it’s so shiney at the same time! It puts on really easily, the olor is so bright that I would think that one coat could possibly be enough. But below is two coats.

Most important part – it’s only $4! I’ve had great experience with all Julie G polish that I tried so far. Check out my other reviews of Julie G proucts if you are curious!

This polish appears as really dark blue when there isn’t light, as you can see in the next photo. Still gorgeous!! 20130518-230045.jpg

And I decided to spice it up with the Sephora OPI It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat. I think it goes together pretty well. 🙂 The deep blue contrasts well with the yellow gold pieces. 🙂

I used OPI Natural Base Coat, and Essie Good To Go topcoat.
