Orly Enchanted Forest

Another winner from Orly! Enchanted Forest is from the Fall 2009 Once Upon a Time Collection. Initially I only purchased Pixie Dust from this collection, but Sally had a deal on this polish I could not refuse. Enchanted Forest plus Orly’s Prisma Gloss in Gold (which I will post about shortly) for $1.99. How could […] Continue reading →

Pure Ice Iced Merlot

We have a drugstore OPI Don’t Toy With Me dupe! Well, that would be more exciting if I didn’t already own the more expensive OPI version. Katie’s OPI Cabernet for the Lady post inspired me to do a “classy and professional” manicure.” Pure Ice Iced Merlot has admittedly been in my box of untrieds for […] Continue reading →

OPI – Cabernet for the Lady

Ah yes, the polish I hinted at in my tweet a few days ago…Here she is! OPI’s Cabernet for the Lady. Cabernet was a Trade Secret exclusive in 2005. See… I went to my nail salon to use a gift certificate I got for Christmas because I’d found out they were closing (I’m so sad […] Continue reading →

China Glaze Emerald Sparkle

First of all, let me say, I am not a huge glitter fan, nor am I a huge fan of green polish, nor am I generally a fan of holiday collections. But this nail polish broke all of those rules! Emerald Sparkle is from China Glaze’s 2009 Holiday collection, Sleigh Ride. I didn’t purchase this […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Caribbean Coral

Can you tell I’m ready for Spring? I can’t stay away from Spring colors! Caribbean Coral is the last of my purchases from Sally Hansen’s new Spring colors, and probably my second favorite. My favorite by far is Pacific Blue, my least favorite being Going Green. I may eventually break down and purchase Virtual Violet, […] Continue reading →

SinfulColors Aqua

I picked SinfulColors Aqua up at Rite Aid the same day I got SinfulColors Let’s Talk. Overall, I’m fairly impressed with these polishes. Both colors wore well and the formulas were great. Aqua is a metallic and frosted bluish-green color (somewhat similar to Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Pro in Marine Blue). I could tell from looking […] Continue reading →

Essie Good to Go! top coat

I talk about Essie’s Good to Go! top coat in almost every post, so I figured it was about time I do a post on it. I’ve been using the top coat on every manicure for about a month. I was looking for a new top coat when conveniently Ulta was running a special, so […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Going Green

I picked up Going Green along with Pacific Blue when Sally Hansen released their new Xtreme Wear colors for Spring. I was really excited about this color, but I kept passing it by to try other untried polishes. This polish kind of intimidated me. I love green polishes, but have traditionally stuck to muted versions […] Continue reading →
