Sephora Formula X "Alchemy"


Hey guys and happy Saturday!  It is officially Autumn now so I broke out the perfect polish to ring in the season!  Today's nail polish is Sephora Formula X's "Alchemy."   Formula X is a brand that used to be sold at Sephora stores but was retired over a year ago.

"Alchemy" is  a copper colored polish with lots of micro glitter that reflects well in the light.  The formula of this polish was perfect and it applied with ease.  After two coats, "Alchemy" was completely opaque and had no visible streak marks. As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for three days before it began to chip off.

Overall I really like Sephora Formula X's "Alchemy."  The color is gorgeous and looked extra awesome out in the sunshine!  I can't wait to wear "Alchemy" again - perhaps for Thanksgiving!

Nicole by OPI "Challenge Red-y"


Hi everyone and happy almost Friday!  (So ready for the weekend!)  Today's nail polish is Nicole by OPI's "Challenge Red-y."  This polish was part of a limited edition special release by collecting box tops tops off of Special K cereals.

"Challenge Red-y" is a bright dark apple red colored polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was great and applied well on my nails.  After two coats, "Challenge Red-y" was completely opaque and had no visible streaks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Challenge Red-y" for four days before I noticed some small tip chips.

Overall I really like Nicole by OPI's "Challenge Red-y."  Everything about this nail polish is fantastic and I can't wait to wear it again soon!

Orly Color Blast "Star Tours"


Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  Today's nail polish is Orly Color Blast's "Star Tours." This nail polish came as part of a set called Hollywood Duo which looks like this:


"Star Tours" is a deep teal colored polish.  Formula wise "Star Tours" was good and very easy to apply.  After two coats the polish was entirely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Star Tours" for five days before I noticed any chips.  Unfortunately when I removed the polish it had stained my nails horribly!

Overall I have mixed feels about Orly Color Blast's "Star Tours."  The color and formula are nice and it looked nice on my nails.  But my nails looked so terrible after the polish that I am not sure I am willing to give this polish another go.

Color Club "Over The Moon"


Hello all!  I hope everyone has survived Monday!  Today's nail polish is Color Club's "Over The Moon" which is a nail polish I purchased on the Live. Love. Polish. website earlier this year.

"Over The Moon" is a stunning blue and silver holo!  (It's more holo than I have every seen before on my nails!)  The formula of this nail polish was fantastic and extremely easy to apply.  After only one coat of polish, "Over The Moon" was completely opaque and streak free.  However I added a second coat for the photos.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Over The Moon" for a full week before I noticed any chips, which is awesome!

Overall I am in love with Color Club's "Over The Moon."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect and I cannot wait to wear it again and again!  I also want to order some more Color Club polishes on Live. Love. Polish.

Finger Paints "Picturesque Purple"


Hello all and happy Sunday!  After rocking some nail art earlier in the week I've decided to tone it back today!  So without further ado, today's nail polish is Finger Paints "Picturesque Purple."

"Picturesque Purple" is a deep purple with fuchsia undertones.  Formula wise this nail polish was great and very easy to apply.  After only one coat of polish, "Picturesque Purple" was entirely opaque and streak free.  However I did add a second coat for the pictures, and because I find polish wears better with two coats.  As far as chipping, I was able to wear "Picturesque Purple" for five full days before there were any chips.

Overall I really happy with Finger Paints "Picturesque Purple."  Everything about this nail polish is fantastic and I definitely plan on wearing it a lot more!

Nail Art: Stained Glass Mani


Hello all and happy Saturday!  Today's nail polish, is actually nail art!  (Yay!)  Lately I've been trying out stamping plates so today I decided to change it up and freehand and do a stained glass mani!  To begin with I needed to pull out all the supplies I would need: tape, scissors, and tweezers.

I also needed to select a bunch of nail polish to create this look.  Here are the ones I selected:

Sephora by OPI's "Keys To My Hybrid", Zoya's "Rebel", Essie's "Aim To Misbehave", Zoya's "Hudson", OPI's "Center Of The You-niverse" and Wet N' Wild's "Hallucinate."

To create this look I first used OPI's "Center Of The You-niverse" and a coat of Wet N' Wild's "Hallucinate" to create the base.  It looked like this:


Next I placed the striped tape in a stained glass looking pattern.  It looked like this:


Overall I absolutely love how this mani turned out!  And was super simple to do!  I received a ton of compliments while wearing this nail art and I will definitely wear it gain soon!

If you want to know more about OPI's "Center Of The You-niverse" or Zoya's "Hudson" check out my posts from earlier this year!
