No-Miss Tequesta Topaz

Hey guys! Hope you’re all having a great week so far. I can’t believe the weekend is just right around the corner! I’m looking forward to finalizing my wedding venue and catering by tomorrow so I can get some invitations printed out. I’ve never given much thought to what kind of wedding I’d love to have and such even when I was very young. I think I was more focused on finding out who I want to spend the rest of my life with. This amuses my man quite a bit, but it’s who I am. And he loves me for it. ;) This week in the nail world, I’ve seen swatches of the China Glaze Crinkled Chromes and I’m still not feeling them at all. I’d really just prefer to have plain chrome shades. I just saw Finger Paints’ new flakie collection and it was meh to me. It seems to have a milky base and the flakies have a more pastel tinge to it, which makes it completely lighter than the original collection. I LOVE how bold and vibrant the flakies are in the original collection. The only OPI Brazil shades that caught my eye so far are the ones in the liquid sand mini pack. I saw a swatch somewhere and was like BRIGHT AND MUST HAVE! Some of Milani 2014 landed in my mailbox today, so I’ll be featuring those pretty soon. But for now, here’s something you won’t see everyday in my polish collection — No-Miss Tequesta Topaz.

No-Miss Tequesta Topaz

Tequesta Topaz isn’t a shade I gravitate towards to naturally. From far away, it’s a brown shade to me. Maybe dark coppery tan. Not really up my alley. But come closer and you see what beauty lies in this bronze number. It’s a beautiful shimmer that applied nicely onto my nails and dried really fast. It’s really opaque too! Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Color me impressed! When in shade, it almost looks like it holds some silvery tiny glass flakes in some angles. In direct sunlight, it glows in it’s full metallic shimmer glory.

No-Miss Plantation Plum

Hey guys! Happy Friday! This week flew by fast for me. I think it’s cause we just came back from vacation. It felt so off for a little bit. I kept thinking a certain day is a different day and such for about 2 weeks. I’m getting back into the swing of things with the blog, but it will be irregular for a little bit as I try to wrap up the wedding planning. YES! I just want to hammer down all the details and be done. I really have no patience for the parts where I have to wait. I loved planning it, but didn’t like the wait that I have to do with the vendors. Anyway, here’s another shade from a brand I’ve come to love: No-Miss Plantation Plum.

No-Miss Plantation Plum

Plantation Plum is a purple shimmer that’s pretty opaque. I love how it’s bold, but a little soft in different lighting. You can see a tinge of pink sometimes. It’s a stunning shimmer that applied beautifully onto my nails. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

No-Miss Indian River Ruby

It’s Thursday again! This week sure flew by. Next week will be an off one for many since Christmas Day is smacked right in the middle of the week. Most people I know would’ve made arrangements to take off the entire week or so. Here’s a shade that’s suitable for those looking for a little red for the Holidays: No-Miss Indian River Ruby.

No-Miss Indian River Ruby

Indian River Ruby is a nice red that’s suitable anytime of the year really. It’s kinda close to what I think of a Christmas red shimmer, but not quite there. It has a tinge of pink that deviates from most Christmas reds. Finish looks a wee bit streaky, but it didn’t bother me at all. Formula is pretty opaque and applied nicely onto my nails. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

No-Miss Largo Lilac

Thank goodness it’s Thursday! I can’t wait for this week to end. It’s been crazy busy with multiple things going on at the same time. My company Holiday party is this Saturday and I still haven’t figured out what dress to wear. I have tons of dresses though, most I haven’t even worn once, so I don’t think it’ll be a problem looking for one. I’ll try to keep today’s post short and sweet since I’m writing this right before I’m done for the day. Here’s No-Miss Largo Lilac.

No-Miss Largo Lilac

Largo Lilac doesn’t strike me as a lilac really, but it’s a really pretty color that makes me think of cold steel. I think this would suit this time of the year well. It would look nice and sleek for Holiday parties! Finish looks streaky, but it wasn’t a problem at all for me. I’m more concerned with the fact how streaky shades make application a living hell, but I didn’t get that with this shade at all. I’m not sure what to classify this at…metallic? It looks more like a foily shimmer. I’ll go with that for now. Formula is kind of sheer side but it’s very buildable. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

No-Miss Venice Vivid

Hey guys! So how did y’all fare at the Thanksgiving sales? I did mine all online except I popped into my local Walgreens for some of their Registered Rewards deals. I couldn’t resist some items I could use that’ll come out to be free. I’ve been really busy lately but decided to squeeze this post in. Here’s No-Miss Venice Vivid.

No-Miss Venice Vivid

Venice Vivid is a pretty bright fuchsia shimmer that dances in the sun. I love how bright it is. Many of you know that different seasons of the year has never stopped me from wearing what I want on my nails. It makes me think of happy things. It’s simply gorgeous. Formula is a little bit on the sheer side but it’s buildable. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.
