Orly – Space Cadet

24 Dec

Orly – Space Cadet

Sometimes purple… or green! or red! Depending on how the light hits the lacquer. :)

This is one of my favorites but the dry time takes a while. 3-4 coats, ~ 1 hour for my nails to fully dry.

Suncoat Water Based Nailpolish Review

6 Sep

Hi everyone!

I was sent a bottle of Suncoat’s water based nail polish. :)

What’s great about water-based nail polish is that it is non-toxic. :) That also means that the polish is free of nail polish fumes!

In order to remove the polish, you just peel it off.

 

The color above is named “Eye candy”.

Pros: non toxic, fast dry time, NO SMELL!, easy removal, nice color selection

Cons: sheer– needed 3-4 coats,  easy removal (not ideal for long lasting mani’s), edge wear

 

OPI warm & fozzie swatch + JULEP Deal!

22 Dec

OPI – warm & fozzie

Annnnd! If anyone is interested in trying out Julep Polishes, there’s a deal going on right now!

You can sign up for a free starter kit (priced at $19.99) for just $0.01 shipping included with code “SHAREON”.

You basically take a quiz to figure out what type of style you have and they will pick out a set that fits you best.

The quiz can be taken  here: http://www.julep.com/mavens/quiz/

If you do not like your results, you can go here: http://www.julep.com/mavens-1?Page=1&Items=12 to view more choices.

Use the code “SHAREON” to bring your $19.99 order down to 1 cent!
Not sure how long this deal will go on for! I just saw it on Slickdeals (courtesy of poster deliria) and felt that I should pass this on. :)

Now Julep IS a monthly subscription thing, so if you don’t want them to continue to charge your card after your first kit/box you’ll need to call in and cancel!

Hope this helps someone! I just placed an order for the It Girl kit (picture above).

^ these are swatches WITHOUT primer!!

The pigmentation is very good. No chalky colors, all the colors are easy to blend and soft. the texture actually kind of reminds me of NYX eyeshadows! there are 2 other palettes, one of blues and the other is pinks/purples. The only downside is that the packaging is cheap.. no  biggie, but there could have at least been some plastic shrink wrap around the palette! Ah, well, for $5 why complain?

I hope I see this at another Walgreens soon! I actually grabbed the last one on the shelf from my local store.

misa – on the edge
sally hansen – hidden treasure

I’ve wanted a flakey polish ever since i first saw a swatch of nfu.oh last year! I never could justify spending $12-13 for a bottle of polish though. Anyone know where I can purchase nfu.oh at a lower cost? Anyway, I’m just so glad I finally own a bottle– though I must admit that this is probably the most expensive bottle of polish that I’ve ever purchased. ($7.99 at Walgreens :()

If anyone was wondering there are limited amounts of  bottles at each store and they are only on the displays… the one I saw only had 2 slots, so 2 per store? I had to look in 6 stores before I finally found it! The last time I checked Hidden Treasure is going for around $15-30 on eBay– and that’s PER BOTTLE! :o

But if you can’t find it in your local Walgreens, fret not my darlings! :D There are dupes! Try Nubar “2010″ ($7.75 shipped within the US on eBay the last time I checked.. I would have bought this one if I had seen the listing before finding HT instores!), Gosh “Rainbow” (not available in the US :(), Maybelline colorama “Sonic Sunset” or “Ruby RayS”(discountinued but may be purchased through Amazon or eBay). There are probably more dupes, but those are the only ones that I am fimilar with. :P Good luck!
