This bright and bold color is from OPI’s recent Hong Kong Collection. It has such a fun name to go with it too! Here is Red My Fortune Cookie.
It’s a very pretty red that’s kinda “in your face” in terms of brightness. Very eye-catching and classic, this shade will definitely pop with just about any outfit (even on a dreary day!). The formula is buttery smooth, a quality that seems to be prevalent in this particular OPI collection. Keep this up OPI! Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
Cremes are one of my least favorite types of polish but this one’s just too pretty to pass up! I even got a backup bottle, which is actually pending to go to someone within the next week. I have a bad habit of stocking up on pretty colors or shades that I got for a decent price on sale.
Orly Witch’s Blue is an interesting shade. It’s a deep blue with shimmer that is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail. Is this a trend or something? Shades that look shimmery and nice in the bottle but this magnificence doesn’t appear so when applied on the nails? I’ve been encountering a lot of this type of polishes lately. The only good thing about this particular shade is it doesn’t do it that much. But yes, it still does a little.
It’s really, really pretty in the bottle. Just look at it. It has a hint of silver on some angles. It’s not too bad on the nail but I really wanted to like this shade more and I just didn’t. I wanted what I see on the bottle to transfer right on my nails, but as many other polish fanatics know….can’t judge a book by its cover with nail polishes.
See how pretty it is in the bottle? It’s pretty on the nail still but not as pretty as I expected it to be. The pictures were taken under direct sunlight and shows the shimmer better than if it were in indoor lighting. The formula is smooth and gave me no problems at all. Drying time is just right, not too slow or fast. Shown in pictures is 2 coats with no top coat.
Orly can be purchased at your local beauty supply stores such as Sally Beauty Supply or ULTA. It is also available in drugstores such as CVS, but take note that variety is sparse. They usually carry a few of their core shades and whatever latest collection is out. I’m not sure if it’s available at other retail chains such as Walmart or Target. Various nail e-tailers carry Orly too, especially shades from past collections.
Here’s an update on Cher Lloyd, the one I’ve been following on the UK show X-Factor. I liked her before and I like her again. She’s different, she’s a breath of fresh air, and I think she really got something that no one else does. She’s very, very unique. I don’t know how she’ll fare much later on but her style and genre….what she does is sick (in a good way). This clip is from her performance in X-Factor Bootcamp.
I think her voice is either a like it or hate it for people. It reminds me of another X-Factor finalist from….I think 2008. Remember Diana Vickers? See Simon’s comment on it.
And just like Simon, I like it. She didn’t win but she went off to do her own thing in the music industry eventually.
Today, I have another stunning polish shade for you guys. I scored this one on a steep sale at ULTA about a month ago. My local ULTA was moving to a new location and they had some of their regular priced stuff on clearance. Lucky for me, this one was marked as such. This is OPI’s Suzi Skis In The Pyreness Suede.
This one dries super fast, as it is a suede finish lacquer. I find the color very interesting. I can’t stop staring at it in the bottle cause it shimmers so prettily. Once it dries on the nail, the suede finish emerges. It is quite pigmented and I was able to get it on nicely on my nail with just one coat. I applied a slightly thicker coat as I was avoiding applying too many brushstrokes since that is what many have trouble with on polishes with this type of finish. A thicker coat didn’t bother me also, as I knew the drying time would be faster with this type of finish.
It’s even prettier with top coat on though. Just look!
Can I just say wow? The formula is the same compared to most of OPI’s suede finish polishes. It goes on very nicely and dries very fast. Here are a few more pictures to show the difference the top coat makes. Such shimmer, oh my!
Which way do you like it better?
This particular shade from China Glaze is quite captivating. I Love Hue is a deep red with lots of shimmer, definitely a color to wear if you want heads to turn your way. It has a hint of orange, just barely. This shade is part of China Glaze’s Core Collection, a stunner for sure!
The shade isn’t unique in the sense that it’s a different red from most red nail polishes. It’s still a very pretty one though. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat. It’s quite pigmented and the formula is buttery smooth. Drying time is fast for a regular shimmer shade from China Glaze. I was really impressed with this one. I did wear this one for a few days with minimal chipping, even without a top coat.
China Glaze has a lot of pretty shades in their Core Collection. To snag this beauty, you can still find it at various nail e-tailers or in retails stores that carry China Glaze such as Sally Beauty Supply or ULTA.
I spotted this recently in my local ULTA store. It was in their clearance section and the B2G2 promo for their nail polish applies to their sale and clearance stuff as well, so I got 4 ULTA Professional nail polishes for less than $7.50. I purchased something else to hit the $10 mark and used the $3.50 off $10 coupon. This is ULTA Professional Rock Star.
The color is so much prettier than shown in the above picture. It is really hard to capture its true color, even in the numerous shots I took of it. This is not, however, the first nail polish to give me this problem. I’ve been noticing this fact more lately because I’ve been taking pictures, trying to capture its true color but can’t.
This is a very deep, dark purple with lots of shimmer. The only problem is the shimmer is hard to see unless you’re in direct sunlight (or you happen to be around lots of picture-taking sessions with flash). Most of the time, it just looks almost black. It’s a very pretty color in the bottle. Personally, I think the color in the bottle is prettier than on the nail. I am slightly disappointed with the shade but for the price I got it for and the quality – I can’t really complain. The formula is beautiful. It goes on very smoothly on the nail, giving me no problems at all. I found the drying time to be surprisingly fast compared to most other nail lacquers.
This is not my first nail lacquer from ULTA. I have several of the older looking type bottles that were teeny with the silver cap. This is the first one I picked up though when they changed their packaging and line. Did they revamp the formula or just change the packaging? I’m not sure, but it’s a pretty good deal if it’s on sale or clearance. The bottle actually reminds me of Chanel’s nail enamel bottles. You can get this shade at the clearance section of your local ULTA stores.
He probably won’t make it far, but he did make it past the first audition.
I think he’s adorable. He will have a tough time, but getting to the point that he did….I think he won’t regret doing it.
And here’s one to look out for….
Let me start by saying I love suede nail lacquers. Let me add that I hated the thought of suede nail lacquers when I first heard about it. It’s like matte nail lacquers…..ugh! Why ruin a pretty shade with that matte look?! So naturally, I shied away from suede polishes. It wasn’t until I saw some pictures of suede polishes with top coat on. Can I just say WoW?! So when some suede shades were on sale when my local ULTA was moving, I jumped on the chance to get a couple. OPI Russian Navy Suede is one of them.
Now, it’s quite pretty the way it is. I did mention that I only started liking suede polishes when I saw it with top coat on so….
See by what I mean?! It’s so pretty! The shine and shimmer the with the top coat on is off the wall! It’s crazy! I loved it so much I got a backup bottle. I did eventually sell it to someone else and I bet they love it just as mush as I do. The formula on this is nice and smooth. I learned that there is actually a way to apply suede type polishes on nails. You have to act fast and try not to do coat after coat without the first coat drying thoroughly first. Or else you will get mad. I mean, really mad. I learned that the first time. I kept thinking that this polish was crap but it was actually me using the wrong application technique for this type of polish. Because I didn’t want to have to reapply several coats, I did one thicker coat. I just swiped the brush gently from the root to tip of the nail quickly twice, avoiding overlapping brush strokes. Overlapping brush strokes on the application will run it. Trust me. Shown is one thicker coat for the plain suede pictures and one thicker coat with a thin layer of top coat on. Drying time is speedy, as expected with suede and matte type of polishes.
Pretty, isn’t it?! With the top coat on, it’s simply amazing. The shimmer is just stunning.
Orly Alabaster Verve is a light, slightly dusty pink with a hint of shimmer. It’s a very work safe color, though not close to a nude or neutral by any means. It’s a “safe” color though to sport for school or work, places with some form of a professional dress code.
The shimmer is more evident and so much prettier under direct sunlight. The flecks it has gives a really nice shimmer to this shade. The formula is smooth and nice but nothing special or different that makes it stand out from other brands really. Shown is 2 generous coats with no top coat on.
This shade was a little surprising for me. I didn’t expect to like it a lot until I noticed it has some shimmer to it. Definitely prettier on the nail than in the bottle. It was a little disappointing too because I expected the beauty of this shade to pull through in all different types of lighting and well……it didn’t really deliver. Not bad though if you got this on sale. I did have an extra one but it went fast on my Sale/Swap page. See? I thought maybe I’d like it so much that I got an extra one. It’s off to a better home now though. My collection is just not big enough for the both of them.
I got acquainted with Nina Ultra Pro nail enamels on my second trip to my local Sally Beauty Supply store. I needed another clearance item to push me to the $25 mark to use a coupon I had ($5 off $25!). I got all the China Glaze’s I wanted (the whole Wizard of Ooh Ahz Collection and a few from the Specialty Glitters Collection) and the only other polish that was available are Nina Ultra Pro. I’ve seen them before but I wasn’t familiar with them. I picked a bottle up, only to realize when I got home that I liked getting whole collections and the one I got was part of a collection I actually wanted. The polish I picked up belongs to the Crushed Velvet Collection (to be featured sometime later on). I eventually did go back and get the rest of it on sale, which made me a very happy girl.
Not long after that experience, I participated in a RAOK swap with a good friend of mine from a purse forum that we both belong to. She had a Nina Ultra Pro up for the RAOK swap. And it was a red one. A very shimmery red one. For those that know me well, red is my favorite color. Yes, and shimmer is one of my favorite type of lacquer finishes. It was meant to be mine. When my RAOK swap box arrived, I knew that I would’ve regretted not getting it just by looking at the bottle.
It’s a gorgeous, deep, dark red that shines and shimmers so beautifully in various types of lighting. It made me squeal when I saw it in the box. The formula is smooth and lovely. I had a little trouble with the bottle as the cap of the bottle was slightly broken. The top part is connected to the brush and the part where you twist to open it….yeah, it’s not attached to the top if that makes any sense. Picture the brush and cap of the bottle as 2 separate pieces instead of 1. It made the polish a little thicker but I thinned it out with a few drops of polish thinner and the formula is just like what I mentioned a few sentences back, smooth and lovely.
Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat on. See the gold in the maroon red color? It’s so stunning. Drying time is fast and the smell is nothing worth noting really; just like most other nail polishes. I’m not sure where else these are sold at aside from Sally Beauty Supply stores. They are pretty good quality nail polishes, especially when they hit the clearance prices.

This is the last day you can get Sinful Colors nail polish at Walgreens for $0.99 each! I’ve been featuring a Sinful Colors shade each day since Monday this week, in hopes that it might help some of you guys in deciding if you like the shade on your nails or not. Today, I have Let Me Go.
This is a very pretty duochrome polish. I picked this up a few weeks ago when Walgreens had it for $0.99 each (they have it at this price every so often, I think). There are other 2 duochromes I picked up on the same trip but this shade is the one with the strongest duochrome effect. At least by just looking at the bottle. You can see the lavender, silver, and pink with some blue and green in this shade.
Please excuse the dry skin. The ever-changing weather here in Oklahoma does take a toll on my skin. Shown in pictures is 3 thin coats with no top coat. Sadly, just like Oasis, it’s a very pretty shade but the duochrome effect doesn’t come through strong enough for my liking. It is very evident in the bottle but not so much on the nails. Hopefully, the next duochrome shade from Sinful Colors that I will swatch is better at this. The formula is smooth, bearing a little bit of the frost nail polish property of streaky brush strokes. This particular shade is quite sheer too, but most duochromes are quite sheer as well. Drying time is pretty fast for Sinful Colors.
Last day today until whenever they do this sale again, ladies! Go get your Sinful Colors now if you haven’t yet.
Concluding this work week, I have Sinful Colors’ San Francisco. This is one of their most talked about shade. This is the very first shade I heard of with any mention of Sinful Colors in the nail blogging world.
It’s a rich, pretty green that has a deep shimmer to it. It is very vibrant and bold. Whenever I pick up this bottle, I can’t help but think of the song “San Francisco” sung by Scott McKenzie. Weird thing is, when I was at Walgreens a few week back when they were having the $0.99 sale for Sinful Colors….that song was playing in the store and I was showing that bottle to the Spy. I took it as a sign and bought it on that trip.
The formula is a quite watery. It’s the most watery Sinful Colors shade I’ve tried so far. The first coat just puddles out in an uneven application, no matter how hard I try. I tend to apply pretty thin coats too. I’ll try applying a super thin coat next time I use this polish. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat. Drying time is slower than other Sinful Colors shades I’ve tried, probably due to the watery formula. It might just be the batch my bottle came from though, so don’t let this part of my review discourage you from getting this beautiful shade.
Last day of this $0.99 sale at Walgreens is tomorrow. Grab them when you can!
First look of this, I passed on it. That was the week I went mad and stocked up on 39 Sinful Colors from Walgreens for $0.99 each. Well, I returned earlier this week to get the ones I missed out on last time cause they were on sale for $0.99 each. I ALMOST passed on this one again! But I picked up every bottle that wasn’t creme (not my favorite nail enamel finish) and dropped it into my shopping basket. I picked this up thinking it was a creme but I was wrong. It’s a shimmer with a very slight duochrome. Duochrome!!! In to the basket it went. Without further ado, this is Sinful Colors’ Oasis.
You can barely see the shimmer in the picture. I know, that’s why I thought it was a creme. It’s such a pretty, bright pink shade with a subtle shimmer and a just hint of duochrome. The name though, Oasis….seriously? Well, I didn’t think much about it until the Spy had a funny look on his face when I told him what the name of this shade was. He said that Oasis makes him think of a green or something close to it, not pink. Thinking about it after he said that, he’s right. But eh, I don’t know what goes on in naming a polish shade when it comes to these cosmetic companies. Sometimes, they’re just downright wacky and doesn’t fit the shade at all.
Shown is one thicker coat with no top coat. See?! Not all Sinful Colors are sheer! I was quite happy with that. For a more opaque look, definitely do 2 or more coats. Drying time is fast. I was doing normal, everyday things in almost no time. Formula was a bit funny, which is why I ended up doing one thicker coat of it. It was on the watery side in the sense that applying thin coats is very uneven, so I just did a thicker coat and it worked out well.
See the shimmery goodness and the slight duochrome? Sadly, the duochrome property of this shade is apparent mostly in the bottle. Very pretty still and it is now part of my Sinful Colors nail polish stash. It’s on sale this week for $0.99 at Walgreens, so run to your nearest one and grab this beauty before they sell out of it!
Yes! Another Sinful Colors for you all here today! This is cause Walgreens is having them for $0.99 this week only, so I’m showcasing them to help you decide if you want to stop by your local Walgreens and check it out. This is a shade called Hottie.
Such a pretty blue glitter polish! This one is quite sheer, which makes me think they probably meant for this to be used for layering like a glitter top coat. Either way, it’s such a pretty shade both in and out of the bottle. I won’t lie though, I think it’s prettier in the bottle. There is multi-colored fine glitter and bigger round pieces of glitter. The glitter pieces are holographic, flashing different colors of the rainbow as your finger moves but this is in no way a holographic polish.
Look at that! WOW! Being that the formula is on the sheer side and I’m not showing it as a top coat, this is 5 thin layers with no top coat. It goes on the nail very smoothly for thin layers. You can do thicker layers if you want. Drying time is fast, as with most glitter nail polishes.
Have you gotten any Sinful Colors yet this week and what are they?
Going along with my excitement that Sinful Colors is on sale this week at Walgreens ($0.99 each!), today I have Tokyo Pearl. Now, I love Sinful Colors to death but can I just say I hate this shade? Wait, let me rephrase that….I like this shade (love, even….it’s so pretty) but I absolutely abhor the application of it. Why? Well, it’s a frost polish and if you are relatively familiar with nail polish you would know exactly what I mean by just that.
This shade is the one that was on top of my “if-it-ever-goes-on-sale-again-I’ll-definitely-get-it” list. Well, I dashed to Walgreens after work yesterday and picked up 7 shades. The first I grabbed was Tokyo Pearl. I was so giddy after poring through my list and comparing it to the display. The 2 girls there probably think I’m nuts but they were really nice. Pardon for the dry cuticles….I redid this 5 times. Yes, 5 times! Did I mention earlier that I hate frosts?
I would lie if I said that I wouldn’t have gotten it even if I knew how problematic the finish was cause it’s too pretty to pass even with the brush stroke dilemma. It’s also worth the 4 coats I applied, as shown, with no top coat. A very pretty, frosty white. Makes me think of snow and winter and even cake (icing, anyone?). It may be a keeper for me still amidst all its shortcomings but think carefully before you get this one cause it might not be worth it to you.
Lucky for us, Sinful Colors makes lots of other shades that you can choose from.
So….Walgreens is having Sinful Colors on sale for $0.99 this week. I thought this week I’d feature some of my Sinful Colors that I’ve acquired in their last $0.99 sale. For $0.99, these polishes are a steal! The quality is very good. Only downside is a lot of shades tend to be on the sheer side but hey, it’s worth it to me. Plus, I only said lots of shades. Not all. There are some one coaters even! You just have to search here or on other nail blogs to see which shades are sheer or opaque with normal application.
This is Sinful Colors’ Forget Now. It’s a very pretty, raspberry shade that has glass flecks in it. Yay, glass flecks! Anyone who knows me in person knows that this is one of my favorite types of nail polish. It made me think of China Glaze’s Raspberry Festival but it’s not the same (and even if it is, hey then – I got a cheap dupe!).
It’s so pretty! Even when the formula is leaning towards a bit more watery than I’d like, it gave me no problems at all. Application is smooth and drying time is fast. Shown is 2 coats with no topcoat. If you want a deeper effect, 3 layers should do it.
I know where I’m heading after this post.
There is a green theme going on this week over at an online forum I belong to and green is the theme this week. I looked over at the greens I got, contemplated, and ultimately decided on OPI’s Jade Is The New Black.
This is a lovely green shade from OPI’s Hong Kong Collection out earlier this year. The formula is buttery smooth and such a dream in terms of creme polish application and drying time. It is quite pigmented and it only required me only 2 thin coats for my desired coverage. I did not use a top coat with this one for the pictures. It can be a one coater if the application of the polish is on the thicker side.
The thing I was most surprised with this one is that it wasn’t a nightmare to apply like a lot of cremes are (for me, at least). I can’t stop saying how wonderful the formula is on this time. The speedier-than-other-creme-polishes drying time is a huge bonus for me.
I’m sending my warmest wishes to my very dear friend in the BVI, Sherma. She’s had a lovely day today (I spoke to her briefly to greet her a happy birthday in person, well, in the only way I could from the US) and her birthday night’s just begun. I’m hoping (and I’m actually pretty sure) she’s having a blast right now. Cheers!
A song I’ve been listening to recently a lot of is Coldplay’s ”The Scientist” but the version sung by Stacey Solomon for UK’s XFactor last year. Her version is the one that sent me scrambling to hear the original version. I thought that the lyrics and riff sounds familiar but couldn’t place my finger on it. A simple Google search did the trick and I am hooked to this song like no other. Only thing is….I listened to the Coldplay version and I prefer Stacey’s version over it. Hmmm…..that statment doesn’t sound good and I’m not sure why that thought bothers me but yeah, I LOVE that song. The lyrics are so powerful and Stacey’s voice makes the song more likeable for me.
And just in case you guys have no idea what XFactor is, here is the clip for Stacey’s version of “The Scientist” from her first live XFactor perfromance last year.
I’m swatching more China Glaze polishes tomorrow. I’m crossing my fingers there will be sunshine tomorrow.
Also, if you haven’t entered my giveaway yet….what are you waiting for? Click here for details on how to enter. It ends on September 18, 2010!
One of the most vivid shades out there right now by Sinful Colors is Let’s Talk. Let’s Talk is a very pigmented, dark purplish violet shimmer. It does bear a slight foil lacquer property, the dreaded brush stroke visibility. You’ll see it more clearly in some of the pictures.
This shade is hot. It’s vey bold and luscious. To me, it gives of an understated sexy vibe. Unlike a lot of Sinful Colors nail lacquers, this shade is quite pigmented. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat. The drying time is pretty fast compared to most polishes, which left me quite pleased.
I had the hardest time capturing the true color of this shade. It appears more blue in the pictures than it really is.
The next picture I have shows its true color more but it’s not a great shot by all means. I had to do a lot of takes and positioning for it and this is the only one that turned out well. It looks more purple in this than all the other shots.
This shade is still available at retailers such as Walgreens, Target, and Walmart (I think they do carry them), just to name a few.
This is a franken of mine that I have long ago gifted to an ex-colleague’s young daughter along with several other nail polishes. A few days ago, I was chatting with him online and he mentioned that his daughter put on this franken of mine and loves it so much. Needless to say, it was a hit. The base of this franken is OPI’s Boo-Berry. I added in a little bit of OPI Ghostess With The Mostess from the same mini pack it came in (it was an ULTA exclusive I think) and some diamond mica. The result?
It definitely glows in the dark. I did my nails with it and then shut off the bathroom light as I was heading to close my bedroom window. Well, it got dark between the time I went into the bathroom to do my mani until I was done. I walked towards the window in the dark and put both hands out in front of me to reach the top of the window to close it and I jumped about 1000000000 feet backwards. Well, more like about 2 feet back. I saw 10 bright oval-shaped things that I didn’t recognize at that moment. So yeah, if you do a glow in the dark mani….don’t forget you did that.
It’s one of my best frankens to date but sadly, I didn’t make more than 1 bottle. It is such a beautiful shade, it has a slight glass fleck shimmer and it’s glow in the dark. How could you go wrong with that?
My colleague, Dan, brought in another round of veggies for us worker bees to feast on. I scored three different kinds of pepper and cherry tomatoes. No okras for me this time. I wasn’t in the mood for it. I went home and cooked up a yummy concoction that I absolutely loved.
I know, I know. This looks just like the other concoction I came up with but I swear, put the pictures beside each other and the difference is glaringly clear. I think I need to switch up my dinnerware too. This was slightly sweet and really light on the cooking oil. Yum!
Stir Fry Peppers, Onions, and Cherry Tomatoes
Lots of peppers (try different kinds – be adventurous!)
1 large Vidalia onion
Lots of cherry tomatoes
Dash of cooking oil
1) Wash peppers and cherry tomatoes. Chop peppers into small pieces. Peel and chop onion into strips.
2) Heat a pan or wok with a dash of cooking oil on high. Add chopped peppers and onion when pan is smoking hot.
3) Pan or wok fry until peppers are tender and onion is almost translucent. Add cherry tomatoes in and add as much black pepper as desired. Stir vegetables on the pan occasionally.
4) Turn off stove when cherry tomatoes start to split open. Stir occasionally for about 5 minutes and serve.
Instructions are dangerously similar to the previous dish I featured but that’s the magic of this….it’s so easy! Grab a fork and enjoy!
A rich wine or plum-colored nail polish always catches my eye. Most of the time though, it fails to impress me when the color is finally on my nails. Thank goodness for this wonderful shade from Zoya! I am talking about Rihana, one of the shades from their Pulse Collection.
Can this shade be any yummier?! You be the judge!
Zoya’s website describes this shade as “Deep, rich plum-purple with subtle red and magenta pearl shimmer. Purple mixed with cool and warm tones so it will flatter most skin tones.” I say their description is spot on!
I mean, just look at it! Wow! That’s all I can say. Show in pictures is 2 thin coats with no top coat. It’s quite pigmented and drying time is pretty fast compared to most of Zoya’s polishes. I offered this up for a swap and almost regretted it after seeing the pictures today. Ah, maybe next time. It’s the one that got away for me. I mean, just look at that gorgeous shimmer!
The first creme shade I am featuring here is no stranger to polish fanatics. It is part of OPI’s recently released Swiss Collection. This collection featured 12 shades that sent girls clamoring to the nearest retail store where OPI is available for sale. Here is OPI’s Ski Teal We Drop.
It’s definitely teal alright. This is such a pretty color that has a lot of depth to it. This creme shade is a must-have for teal lovers. The formula is a dream to apply. It goes on like perfect butter on toast; smooth and creamy. Shown in the pictures is 2 thin coats with no top coat. It covers very well and you can get away with just 1 coat if you apply it slowly and thicker.
Now, those who know me on a more personal level can tell you that I tend not to like cremes. I stay away from it. Almost like a plague. Really. Yes, really. But this shade actually opened the door for me on trying more creme nail polishes. Hey, if they all apply so well like this one (I can’t get over how smooth the application of this was!) then I’m open to trying all creme polishes. I remember trying to love creme nail polishes when I got Essie Mint Candy Apple but the application was streaky so it was a no-go. I gave it away and have a backup, which I am happy to report went to a better home where it would be loved. Hooray for swaps! Anyway, I leave you with this one last shot I took of this beautiful creme shade.
Are you digging this shade?
