OPI Pop Culture Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review


Hi everyone! Today I have the new/upcoming 6 piece Pop Culture Collection from OPI. You all are going to think I’ve lost my mind when you see the photos below, but I am not hating this collection! Keep in mind you are seeing up close and expanded photos and they don’t look all that appealing, but in real life, at arm’s length, these do not look that bad. I actually really love a couple of them and at least one of them I would not wear again.

Now, I am a big fan of textured polishes. I have all the Zoya PixieDusts, OPI Liquid Sands, and a few from L’oreal among others. You do have to be a fan of gritty texture or just turn away now, these are not for you! In my opinion, these do not look good with topcoat and even worse with matte topcoat. They actually are not as bumpy and obnoxious if you layer one coat over a similar base color either. I will show you all of that below.

I bought these from PolishPick.com. You can find them HERE. I am not really affiliated, I do buy the polish from them but I am a choice in their drop down menu of where you heard about the company. I don’t get any perks if you do or don’t pick me, but please choose my name if you do make a purchase! I am not affiliated with OPI.

I do have a lot of photos today!

OPI Grease Collection – Summer 2018 // Swatch and Review Part 1


Hi everyone! Today I have the first 6 polishes from the new/upcoming OPI Grease Collection to share with you! This is the 40th Anniversary of Grease the movie! I may or may not be old enough to have seen this in a theater when it first came out (I’ll never tell!) but I do still have the original vinyl album!

Grease is one of a handful of movies I would watch over and over. It’s been a long time now since I’ve seen it. I was really looking forward to this collection when I heard it was coming!

As I was painting my nails with some of these I got an ear worm of the song the polish related to, so that was a fun remembrance!

I bought this collection from Polishpick.com.  They have good prices and reasonable (and quick!) shipping! Check them out HERE.

Check out the other 6 polishes in the Grease Collection Part 2 HERE!

You can check out the mini collection of Leather Like Effect polishes HERE.

As always, I have a lot of photos today!!

Sally Hansen Summer 2017 Crayola Collection // Swatches and Review Part 1


Hi everyone! Today I have the first 6 polishes from the new Sally Hansen Crayola Collection. This is a collection of 12 polishes in bright, fun, Crayola colors! I ordered most of these a couple weeks ago from Target.com, but I have since seen them in a Target store. People on MUA are also seeing them in BB&B, HEB and Kmart. I am not affiliated with Sally Hansen, Crayola or any of those stores.

This collection took me way back to school shopping before the new school year started. I always loved school shopping with the list from school of the supplies we would need for the next year. I always got the new 64 crayon box from Crayola with the built in sharpener before each elementary school year. Ah, Memories!

You can see Part 2 HERE

Here are all 12 of the colors. Today I just have the first 6 to show you.

Ms. Sparkle – Spring Bouquet // April 2017 Fantasmic Flakies Exclusive


Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is another of my recent haul from Ms. Sparkle. These polishes come all the way from the Netherlands! You can find her Etsy shop HERE (it looks like she’s on a little break at the moment, but will be back soon), but this one is no longer available, as it was a color exclusive to the Facebook group Fantasmic Flakies. A place to join if you love flakie nail polish!

I also got an email the other day from Beautometry.com that they will be carrying Ms. Sparkle polishes starting in June! That will be much easier and quicker! I am not affiliated with Ms. Sparkle or Beautometry.

Christian Louboutin Beauty – Loubichrome I


Hi everyone! I bought all three of the “Loubichromes” as soon as I saw them online in January. They are LE and I knew they would sell out fast, even at $30 a pop for a mini size. Good news, as I’m writing this today, from a quick Google search they are all still available online. You may have to go to a few different etailers to get them all, but it’s not too late to get them if you like them. These were my first Louboutin’s. I just had to have them as soon as I saw the packaging and the handle, especially! I’m a sucker for all things multi chrome. To me, they are like little pieces of art. I have quite a few pictures today since there are not many swatches out there.
