Milani Color Statement Collection - Summer Fall 2014

 I found the new Milani's at my local CVS hidden on a bottom shelf. Well not exact "hidden" but I could have easily passed them up. The polishes sport the new bottle shape, similar to Nails Inc but slightly larger. There were 12 polishes in the display: a couple of glitters, shimmers, cremes and 1 quick dry top coat.  I selected 4 colors along with the quick dry top coat.

Pink Roses

Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my nail of the day with you. For the base coat I used OPI Push and Pur-Pull. Then stamped using DRK-A image plate using Sally Hansen Lively Lilac, Presto Pink and Berry Swift. To add a little bling I stamped the tips with Color Club's Foil Me Once.

I hope you enjoyed this mani. Thanks for stopping by!

NOTD OPI Sheer Tints Nail Stamping Design

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share my NOTD using the new OPI Sheer Tints. I applied 2 coats of each polish over white stamped nails with a black base.  The outcome was a  pretty vibrant look. 

From top to bottom: I'm Never Amberrased, Be Magentale With Me, I Can Teal You Like Me, and Don't Violet Me Down.

Check out my video to see the consistency and formula of each polish as well as how I created this look.  

I love how this turned out. Super easy and eye catching. I may try layering with glitter next. These are so much fun :)

Thanks for stopping by!

OPI Sheer Tints 2014 - Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! Today I have the new OPI Sheer Tint's to share with you. The collection is composed of 4 sheer jelly polishes.  I would say they are even more sheer than jellies, hence the name.  They add just a touch of color to your nails. The shine is strong since the colors are so sheer. The formula is interesting and almost gooey. I had a couple of strings of polish linger after it was applied.  

I'm Never Amberrassed - sheer amber that came across more yellow next to my skin.  I think this is my least favorite from the bunch due to lack of contrast. I'm sure it will look better against other skin tones. I used 2 coats. 

Be Magentale With Me - very pretty pink/magenta sheer. My favorite from the collection. I did have to use 3 coats though.

Don't Violet Me Down - gorgeous violet sheer. My ring finger smeared, probably because I didn't let the polish dry between coats. I used 3 coats. here. This is my second favorite.

 I Can Teal You Like Me - came across more blue against my skin tone, but I can definitely see the green.  I used 3 coats again.  

The colors are perfect for Spring and Summer. You can create some pretty interesting effects by layering glitters and stamping designs. I may try a few layering designs I've seen done in the past. OPI suggests to use them alone or as a top coat to add color and dimension.

If you're wondering the sheers are not as intense as other jelly polishes I own. With previous polishes I was able to get them pretty opaque with 4 coats, but I believe the sheers will take at least 5. As mentioned above, the formula is gooey and should be allowed to dry between coats. I believe that's why my Violet nail smeared. Overall I really like this collection and can't wait to play with them more. My favorites are Dont' Violet Me Down and Be Magentale With Me

 I don't have a release date for the Sheer's but hopefully they will be available soon!

OPI Glitter Off Natural Nail Peel Off (Peelable) Base Coat Review

Hey guys I have another post for you today featuring the new OPI Glitter Off natural nail base coat. I'm not sure if the ingredients are composed of glue but it applied similar to the Elmer's Glue base coat.  The formula is a medium consistency and applied well. It dried to a matte finish and I did not notice my nail ridges after the base coat dried.  It took approximately 6 minutes to dry. I only used 1 coat.
