Dupety-dupe-dupe-dupe!

So today I took out some nail wheels and swatched all the glitter polishes I've acquired in the past month. I don't post haul photos because I don't want anyone to get any expectations about what I may or may not post on my blog.When I first started blogging in March,I posted a haul photo,and got a comment almost immediately saying," I can't wait to see swatches!" I felt incredibly intimidated,because my camera skills were terrible at the time,and second,I don't really like swatching a whole collection on demand. I know,not much of a people-pleaser,am I? That's just me.

You can call me a slacker,if you want,but that is how I roll. Anyway, as I was swatching to nail wheel,I realized it might be fun to take two,or three,or four of my polishes and layer them over my current mani,which is Accessorize Notorious,one of the polishes I received from Jenni at Gold Speck Nails

Here are the contenders:

Orly Rock Solid,Wet n' Wild Diamond in the Rough,Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Glitz Gal,and China Glaze Some Like It Haute

While Orly Rock Solid,is technically not a glitter,I wanted to see how it's holographic properties held up against the glitter polishes. I was surprised at what I was able to conclude from this comparison.


From left,index Sally Hansen Gem Crush Glitz Gal,middle finger Wet n' Wild Diamond in the Rough,ring finger: China Glaze Some Like It Haute,and pinky: Orly Rock Solid

I am not really sure that these photos do it justice,but I am hoping it will give an idea of what I am comparing. It is truly amazing how all three of the glitters can look exactly alike,and yet there is one that is the absolute stand-out of the three,and it turns out it is the cheapest one! Wet n' Wild Diamond in the Rough is hands down the glitter queen of these three polishes.After applying Sally Hansen Glitz Gal to my index finger,I thought oh well,because I had already applied the WnW to my thumb.Then came China Glaze Some Like It Haute,which I applied to my ring finger,again,meh.

As far as Orly Rock Solid,you can tell that it is terrific layered.Layering it seems to bring it's holo out. When I swatched it on the nail wheel you could tell that there was not much holo about it.It was flat compared to the other three polishes.

So,there you have it. IMHO, Wet n' Wild Diamond in the Rough is the glitterific polish of these dupes.It has the most holographic glitter,and if you can still get your hands on it,I would buy multiple bottles of it,and hoard it like a cheap suit. :-)

Dr.'s Remedy Jolly & Joy Holiday 2011 Swatches and Review

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who is celebrating today!

I finally had some time to swatch these gorgeous polishes!I must have swatched and reswatched them a couple of times each,except for the glitters.

 I can't even decide which one of the group is my favorite.They are all so pretty and festive-looking,especially the glitters.

First up is ESSENTIAL Emerald


ESSENTIAL Emerald is described as a take on the classic tree and plant-inspired gem of shade,with delicate glimmer and unparalleled amounts of glamour. 
I used two coats for this swatch,and I would definitely describe it as an emerald gem green creme.It took me some time to get used to it,as I am not used to wearing holiday greens. I have to say that after wearing it,I really started to like it alot. It went on really smooth and covered in two coats.

Next up: REVIVE Ruby Red

I absolutely adore this color! It is described as a shimmer-infused Wizard of Oz-inspired shade of crimson.This one also covered in two coats. 

Next for you,I have: PASSION Purple 


This one is described as a bombshell-boysenberry with subtle silver meshed throughout.While I was able to detect the silver in the bottle,I wasn't able to capture it on the nail. This is a very beautiful shade of berry that covered also in two coats.

The final two polishes in this group are glitters.

First is SERENE Silver.


Serene Silver is described as a seasonal sizzler like no other: shine,chic,totally unique in the metallic scene.
Coverage was incredibly easy.One coat would have been enough for me,two coats was fine too,I am showing it at three coats,because I just couldn't get enough of this beautiful mix of bling! This is not just any silver glitter! Throughout the polish, are fine pieces of red and green glitter.It is definitely a scene stealer. I can totally see this one as an accent nail with Essential Emerald. Even alone it is gorgeous.

Finally my favorite of the two glitters is RESOLUTION Red.


RESOLUTION Red is described as a red-meets-copper spin that's sequin-look-alike laden with high-shine and sparkle. I am showing it here at two coats. One coat is actually enough for opacity. To me it appears golden in the bottle with red and copper microglitter. This photo does not do it justice,however,I feel it is the star of this collection!

I have one more thing to say about the glitters.These are truly amazing as far as coverage,formula,and even removal. They go on really smooth,opaque in one coat,and are so much more easy to remove than some of the glitters we've been seeing released for this season.They are truly unique. Dr.'s Remedy should make more of these types of gliters for Spring and Summer. They would totally be a hit,as they are so easy to apply,cover in one coat, and are super easy to remove. KUDOS to Dr.'s Remedy for the glitters in this collection. They rock! 


As a reminder Dr.'s Remedy Nail is having a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale on all of their polishes on the website. The polishes will be only $14 and you will also get free shipping. Besides ordering online,you may also order by calling 1-877-323-NAIL.Their website is www.remedynails.com

Broadway Nails Fast French Deceptions review

I haven't done a nail review in awhile. I don't make it a habit to review every type of nail I use,simply because each day seems to run into the next,and I lose track of which nails I use each week. But I feel that these particular nails deserve a review all their own.

I hadn't tried these before until a few weeks ago.And I must say, these are a great departure from some of the ones I am used to using. Ibought this set of nails at my Walgreens,and since I was in need of some short style nails.

What attracted me to these first is the French style,which is not so ordinary among most brands of artificial nails these days,however,these particular nails,not only have French tips,they also have simulated moons.The moons of these nails are what make them so unique and natural looking. I am wearing a pair right now,and my husband complemented me on them this morning,saying they were a very nice natural looking length. I sometimes use these or these or most often I use the Active Oval nails,for which I haven't even done a review...oh my! I haven't even reviewed my favorite artificial nails,however, here you can see a photo of the oval nails,that gives you an idea of what I am referring to.

Now,on to the review. :-)

     Here in the corner of the box,you can see where the package emphasizes that the nails have natural looking moons.                                           
                                                     I have opened the box to show you better what the contents look like. At the bottom,there is a little vial of Pink Gel nail glue. Above that are four sets of nails with self tabs.The tabs are removable,and make for easy application of the smaller size nails.Once you've applied the nail,all you do is twist off the tab. They are also numbered,that way,when you go back to use them again,you know what size you need.The larger size nails do not have self tabs nor are they numbered.

You can also see there is a well containing more nails.The package contains 24 nails in 12 different sizes.

There is also a manicure stick,which I have found is good for pushing away excess glue. There is also supposed to be a mini file in this box,I do not have it pictured,probably because that is the first thing I grab when I open the box is the nail file.

  I normally need a different size for each nail.With most boxes of artificial nails,I usually get two uses out of the box,without having to resize any of them on the second set. So I wore the first set a few weeks ago,and then when I went to apply the second set yesterday, I found that there was no duplicate nails for my pinky and index nails. I did file a couple of smaller nails down to serve for my pinkies,however, all of the rest of the nails were too big,and it would have been troublesome to try to make them fit my index fingers since I was in a bit of a hurry.So, I reached into a little box I keep of unused nails just for that purpose.

                                               This is a little plastic craft container,that I use to keep unused nails from various packages of artificials that I've used over the past year. I took a nail from here,found a match,and used it for my index finger.My index finger is not pictured in the review since it is not the same type of nail. When I have some free time,I do go in and file some of these nails down,that way they may be used,without letting anything I've purchased go to waste.

As far as application goes,these are extremely easy to apply.I take my time,push my cuticles back with the manicure stick,and fish a bit for the right size nails.I line them all up in order,and then take out the glue. This is actually the first time I've used the Pink nail glue with these nails.In the past,with other sets of nails,I haven't found the glue contained,to be easily applied. I normally use the larger bottle of glue that comes with the 100 count of Active Square nails pictured below.It drips onto the nail alot easier,as the Pink gel glue requires alot of squeezing for me to get the contents out. This time though I did not have that trouble with the glue,and I am not able to say why.

 



I love the natural design. I like the ease of application. I especially love the natural-looking moons.
What I didn't like,was that I didn't get double use of the package contents the way I normally do with the other French nails I've used from Kiss. I normally do wear the Kiss nails in the medium length.I have also on occasion used Nailene.

Broadway Nails  have various Design,French,and Natural nails to suit just about everyone's style. I bought mine at Walgreens. You can also find them at Target,WalMart,and CVS pharmacy. I believe they can also be ordered online at some of the online drugstore shops.

Neon Bootie Babes

I had a couple of neons from Bootie Babe I wanted to share with you. These photos somehow were forgotten a couple of weeks ago ,during my swatchathon. I actually love the neons from Bootie Babe. The first one I have for you is called Lime So Fine.

                                                          Photo taken outdoors in the shade.

This polish applied much like a jelly. It was still translucent after two coats,however,it came out really smooth,and there was no streaking like there was with the pastels I received.

The other one I have for you is called Mean Tangerine.

                                                               Photo taken in sunlight.

It's so bright,it's almost blinding,but I love this color! It also covered in two coats. The consistency was sheer like the other one I swatched.

I do like the Bootie Babe neon polishes much better than the pastels.

Thank you for reading.

Untrieds Challenge Day 12

I have another untried polish to show you today. It's called Barry M Coral. This is one of the polishes I received from Jenni 

                                                          Indoors in natural light
Outdoors in shade 

I am down to nubbins again,and this polish applied like a dream. It took just two thin coats to make it opaque. I love the brush for this polish.It made application very easy. I got carried away and added a coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuschia. 

I hope everyone of you is having a good week. Until next time,happy polishing!

International Nail Mail!

Last night I had the good fortune of reaching into my mailbox and finding a box from the lovely Jenni of Gold Speck Nails . 

 today I very carefully unwrapped the box,and delved into it's contents :-)

Here is a photo of what she sent me:

I received two MUA polishes,two BarryM Nail Paint polishes,and an Accessorize polish called Notorious. She also sent me those cute little leapard print nail files,and below it,the little wheel of gold and silver bullion beads for nail art.

I've already begun to play with my new goodies,and thank you very much Jenni!

Untrieds Challenge Day 11

And Kleancolor Metallic Purple.What can I say,it's a tie between Metallic Aqua and Metallic Purple,because they are both so pretty. I love both of them more than all of the other metallics combined!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my untried Kleancolor polishes.

As always,there is a list of links,off to the right,of all the ladies participating in this challenge.

Untrieds Challenge Day 9

This one is Kleancolor Metallic Green. This one is one I really like,although it did stain.

Untrieds Challenge Day 8


For today's challenge,I'm wearing Kleancolor Metallic Mango. This was also a two coater. 

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Untrieds Challenge Day 7


for Pink Wednesday,I am wearing Kleancolor Metallic Fuschia. This one is a two coater,it applied very easily,and though the picture is not quite true to color,I like the actual color itself. The part I didn't like was the staining upon removal. This and all the other Kleancolor Metallics,except for Metallic Red and Metallic Mango,were the only two that did not stain my nails. 

                             

Le Petit Faon nail polish giveaway!

Dr's Remedy Fall Fever 2011 swatches and review

Today I have some swatches of the Dr.'s Remedy polishes for review. The fall line includes three fierce shades to welcome the crisp fall weather! (This review is a little late,considering I haven't been feeling well for the past couple of days.)

First up is Balance Brick a modern maroon with body and balance.

Although my camera is pulling some pink tones here,the shade is more of  a warm brick red creme. I loved the formula on this one.It was easy to apply,and covered my nails evenly in three coats.Both of these pics were taken in the morning sunlight,however,I believe the one below,even though it's partially shaded shows the truer color of the polish.


Next up is Noble Navy a sea-at-dusk shade that reflects light and brings dimension to tips and toes alike.

I truly love this shade of blue.It's not a vampy blue, like some navys that will appear black in low light or indoors. It's a shade of blue that includes just a tinge of royal blue,that gives it an extra touch of something. It covered in two coats,and again,very easy to apply.

Last of these fierce fall shades is Defense Deep Red,a rich bordeaux with a mystifying matte finish.


My press release described this as a matte finish,however,I am not seeing any matte finish.It is truly the opposite of matte,in that it is has a very shiny and jelly-like quality to it. I used three coats for opacity,and you can still see the translucent jelly quality in these pics.This is not a bad thing. I love jelly polishes,in fact they are one  of my favorite finishes.So wether it is matte or not,is not really an issue for me. The color is a bit on the vampy side of red,in a good way. In real life it does appear darker than in these photos,however,this one was pictured inside my lightbox. (please excuse the little itty black dots you may see---they're little bits of flakie polish that would not come off my nail from a previous manicure,and I actually thought that I could hide them beneath this gorgeous burgundy polish!)

I do have a favorite in this group.It's the blue one.It is a take on navy that is truly unique,and I believe I will find myself wearing this polish throughout the fall and winter season.

Which one of these is your favorite? Have you tried Dr.'s Remedy polishes? If you have,do you like them?

30 Days of Untrieds!-Day 6

Wow,I can't believe I have made it to day 6,lol! I have a hard time committing to some things,let alone this blog,haha! Anyway, for today's untried,I pulled out Nubar Gem,also from the Prisms collection.Gem is a muted taupe grey with fine holographic glitter.Boy is it ever glitterific! I just love this one.I believe it might be my favorite of the Nubar Prisms colors. My bottle hasn't been used since I bought it last year,and I feel,even though I shook it good, the pigmentation wasn't quite right.It was sheer at first,but built up nicely by the third coat. 

                                                                         
Both photos were taken inside my lightbox,I think the second photo gives you a better idea what the color really looks like.To me there is more taupe than grey in this polish.The holographic glitter is truly insane!

I took it off the very next day,as I didn't want anyone noticing how glittery my nails were.It was one of those days where glitter would have been appropriate.

And as always,to the right,you will find links to all the other ladies participating in this challenge.

30 Days Untrieds! - Day 5

Today I decided to wear one of the polishes from the Nubar Prism collection called Treasure.This one is not a treasure,it's a dud,as far as holographics go. It was sheer and I used three coats,thinking that would do it,but as you can see,there is VNL.

Oh my look who snuck in for a visit! It's one my Disney stuffed animals,lol! Yes, this was a gift from my dear husband. I believe it is one of the characters from the movie LIlo and Stitch. I am not really sure because the tag doesn't really say. As a girl I had tons of stuffed animals, so many,that when I went to bed at night,it was a nightly ritual to remove them so that I would have a place to sleep,lol!

Do you still collect stuffed animals? I do! :-)

30 Days of Untrieds!-Day 4

Hi again! It's time for another installment of 30 Days of Untrieds! Here is Austin-taceous Turquoise a polish from this Spring's OPI Texas collection! I am not that fond of it.I like the color,however,it took at least 6 coats and there is still VNL. I will probably relegate this color to my layering polishes pile.Too bad,so sad,it looked so pretty in the bottle.

30 Days of Untrieds!-Day 3

Kleancolor Metallic Red,a color that I received from Maria at Nails Made Simple

This shade of red is so pretty.It's metallic and covered in one coat,however,I used two. Thank you,Maria!



Both photos were taken in my lightbox,with flash, at night,since I didn't have time during the day to swatch.I really prefer doing outdoor photos more.

What do you think of this pretty metallic red?

Bootie Babe nail polish swatches and review

Today I have swatches of the two pastels I received from Bootie Babe Cosmetics .

First up is Slinky Pinky. It is a pink pastel creme,that would have covered in one coat,if I had left well enough alone. I didn't like the way it streaked,as some pastels do,so I applied a second coat,after which the polish self-leveled,which was truly nice. Photo taken in sunlight,which comes a whole lot later,now that the season has changed.

And here is Slinky Pinky in the shade. I couldn't decide which pic was more true to the shade,so I included both of them.

Next up is Lilac Lunatic.Such a cute name! This one applied a bit better than Slinky Pinky.It was smoother.
The formula on these may not be consistent,I believe Slinky Pinky's formula was a teeny bit thicker than this lilac pastel.Here is Lilac Lunatic in the shade.Clean-up on this one could have been a bit better.


And in the sunlight,unfortunately you can see all the faults I made with application. It really does look nice IRL,however, photos always seem to magnify every little detail,just like they say being on camera adds pounds.

Now,I want to address a few of the  issues I encountered with the actual packaging. First of all,when I opened my bottle of Slinky Pinky this is what I saw:

                                                         Goop around the neck of the bottle.Dried up, caked up goop.
Secondly, the brush. You can see from the photos below how wonky the brush is.



And of course third,the cap itself,which is way to small for an adult with small hands.I say small hands,because I do have small hands. The cap was difficult to hold on to while polishing the nails,and besides the wonky brush,it is actually too short. So the combination of these two things may have affected application just a bit. I do know from keeping up with the conversations on the Bootie Babe Facebook page that there will be "a new and improved cap,with the next shipment,that will be taller and easier to hold." I hope that there will be some improvement to the brushes as well.

In summary,these are some of the great pluses of these polishes.  

All in all,though, for $6 a piece,these are truly a novelty item,that many women will want to own,just for the shape of the bottle. The formula was fairly decent,my package arrived intact with no spillage,and I should also add that these polishes are BIG3free,cruelty free,and are available for international shipping! Shipping was incredibly fast!

You have twelve lovely shades to choose from,so head on over to the Bootie Babe website and get your bootie-shaped polish on!

I will also be swatching neon polishes I received too,and include those in a separate post.




These polishes were kindly sent by the good folks at Bootie Babe Cosmetics for review.
