NYX Coral Sensation

*Products Bought and Swapped For

Hey guys!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I painted my nails with this gel-type nail color and wanted to see how long it would last, so I didn't change my nails for like a week.

I decided to finally change my nails today, and I wanted to use a color I picked up in a 8-piece set at Ross a couple weeks ago.

This is NYX Coral Sensation. This is a coral polish packed with shimmer. The color is a bit more orangey-coral in person. I did three coats by itself. I did an accent nail using China Glaze Glimmer More. This is a glitter topper filled with fuchsia, yellow, orange, and light pink hex glitters. I did two coats to get a decent coverage.

I really love this polish. The formula is great, no problems with application. The color is gorgeous too. Usually you get corals that are just basic cremes, but I love the impact of the shimmer.

Well, that's all I have for you guys for now. I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Powder Perfect Monsoon VS KBShimmer Don't Teal Anyone

*Products Received in Swap and Giveaway

Hey guys!

I am back again today with another great post.

In the last post, I showed you guys some lovely Powder Perfect polishes. One of them was called Monsoon. When I received the polish in the mail, it reminded me of another indie polish I had acquired, as it looked very similar.

It reminded me of KBShimmer Don't Teal Anyone. It was late afternoon when I got the polish, so the colors appeared quite similar to me, but now that I swatched them, they don't look quite similar anymore.

Powder Perfect, as I mentioned, is a blue-teal/sea green polish filled with blue, gold, and silver glitters. I did two coats for the swatch.

KBShimmer's Don't Teal Anyone is more teal, with blue, gold, and fuchsia colored glitter. I did three coats for the swatch by itself. 

Don't Teal Anyone is more green, while Monsoon is more on the blue side. Curse my awful camera, it is hard to see a difference in the base colors, but trust me, it is there.

KBShimmer Don't Teal Anyone

So while they are similar, they are far from being any sort of dupe for one another. In person, the difference is even greater with KBShimmer much more green.

If you are into teal polishes, I suggest you pick up both of these lovelies if you don't have them already, because both are unique and necessary in your collection!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my post. I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Powder Perfect Swatches and Review

*Products Won in Giveaway

Hey guys!

I am back today with a fabulous post of some polishes that I recently won in a giveaway.

Last month, I won some polishes from an indie brand called Powder Perfect. Thing was, they don't ship to the United States. I checked out the polishes and really loved them, so I asked around and found someone from Australia, where the brand is located, to have them shipped to them and then ship to me. All I had to do was send her some polishes/polish items she wanted from the US. 

The package came to me last week, and I wanted to show you guys these lovelies. I won three of their recently released polishes.

Here is a preview:

The first one I have to show to you guys is fabulous, and I am sure for most of you, will be your favorite of the three. It isn't my favorite, but it is still gorgeous. This is called Storm Rainbow, a grey and rainbow colored holographic polish. This one is jam packed, so it does not, I repeat does not, need a base color. I did two coats by itself.

Second up, this one is called Monsoon. This is a sea-green/blue-teal polish filled with gold, silver, and dark blue glitters. I did two coats by itself. I have a comparison post coming up soon with this polish and another well known indie.

Lastly, this one is my favorite of the three. this is called Forecast; Optimistic. This is a pale blue crelly with pastel colored glitters throughout. I did two coats by itself.

Application on all three was fantastic, they all went on well. excuse the look of the cuticles and hangnails, my fingers were dry, has nothing to do with polish or anything of the sort.

Powder Perfect nail polishes can be purchased on their website, Their polishes range from $10-$12 for full size, and they currently have some polishes on their site that are marked down to $7.

I hope you guys enjoyed my post. I'll talk to you all later, bye!

Formula X for Sephora Effects

*Products Purchased By Me

Hey guys!

I am back today to show you some more polishes from Sephora's Formula X line.

I have a huge backup of polishes on my computer desk, and decided I would try to get to swatching them all, starting with the ones that have been sitting on my desk the longest. I picked up these polishes several months ago and haven't gotten around to using them yet, so I thought today would be the time.

I have two up to show you, here is a preview:

The first one I have up to show you is called Galaxy. This is a blue black shifting texture polish. I did two coats by itself. I love textures and this one did not disappoint. Application was great!

Next up, this one is called Hocus Pocus. This is a really pretty polish. It is a lavender metallic holographic polish. The holo-ness shows up better than the light than on camera, but it does have a great holo in my opinion. I did two coats by itself. Application was fantastic.

These are my third and fourth Formula X for Sephora polishes I have tried, and they are as great as the others. I love this brand, and I hope you guys do too!

Well, that's all I have to show you guys. I hope you enjoyed, I'll talk to you all later, bye!
