Ciaté "Let It Snow"


Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!  It feels like it should be Friday already but alas it isn't.  So to pep me back up here's some glitter!  Today's nail polish is actually a loose glitter called Ciaté's "Let It Snow."  This glitter came as part of Ciaté's annual Advent Calendar - this was part of the 2014 set that looks like this:


"Let It Snow" is a silver shiny loose glitter.  It looks like this in the bottle:


Since it is a loose glitter I decided to use it as a top coat on top of Orly Color Blast's "Ice-olated" which is a pretty frosty mint polish.  The looked turned out to be very Wintery and pretty.

If you want to know more about Orly Color Blast's "Ice-olated" check out my post from earlier this year.

Overall I like this loose glitter but it does make such a giant mess.  I wish I could find a less messy way to wear "Let It Snow"!

Covergirl "Piña Colada"


Hello all and happy Father's Day to all who celebrate.  Today's nail polish is Covergirl's "Piña Colada" which is helping pretend every day this Summer is a day at the beach!

"Piña Colada" is a lovely pastel yellow polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was pretty good and applied well.  After two coats, "Piña Colada" was fully opaque with just a few streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Piña Colada" for five full days before noticed some minimal tip wear!

Overall I am really pleased with Covergirl's "Piña Colada."  Everything about this nail polish is nice and it looks so happy on my nails.  I definitely will wear this nail polish a lot more often!

Cupcake Polish "Queen Frostine"


Hi everyone and happy Fri-YAY!  I hope everyone has started off their weekend with a bang!  Today's nail polish is Cupcake Polish's "Queen Frostine" from their Candyland Collection.  I purchased this nail polish on Live. Love. Polish. and have zero regrets!

"Queen Frostine" is an absolutely stunning bright blue polish with silver chunky glitter.  The formula of this polish was wonderful and the application was like no other glitter polish I have ever tired.  (Read: PERFECT!). After two coats "Queen Frostine" was entirely opaque and had no streak marks.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for six full days before there was wear on the tips.

Overall I am absolutely in love with Cupcake Polish's "Queen Frostine."  In all my years of nail polish I have never had a better glitter and it looks so gorgeous on my nails!  I may never take this nail polish off ever!

ULTA "Ginger Peach"


Hello everyone and happy Wednesday!  Today's nail polish is ULTA's "Ginger Peach."  ULTA is an American beauty supply store that sells make-up, nail polish, body products and hair items.

"Ginger Peach" is a lovely reddish-peach color with a hint of shimmer.  The formula of "Ginger Peach" was great and it applied nicely to my nails.  After two coats the nail polish was full opaque with no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear "Ginger Peach" for six days which really surprised me as I haven't had as much luck with other bottles of ULTA polish.

Overall I am happy with ULTA's "Ginger Peach."  Everything about this nail polish was fantastic and I can't wait to wear it again soon!

Sally Hansen Magnetic "Silver Elements"


Hello all!  Sorry for the delay in posting some bad storms came through and knocked the wifi out.  Luckily it is back up and running now!  So without further ado, today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Magnetic's "Silver Elements" which is unsurprisingly a polish that you can create a design with a magnet on.

"Silver Elements" is a standard silver color with shimmer that turns into a darker grey when activated by the magnet.  The formula was absolutely fantastic and it applied easily to my nails.  This nail polish is designed to be worn as a single coat and it lived up to that hype.  After only a single coat "Silver Elements" was fully opaque with no streaks.  Applying the magnet is super easy because it is on the cap - which pops off and is separate from the brush.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear this polish for three days before there were some chips.

Overall I quite like Sally Hansen Magnetic's "Silver Elements."  It is a fun occasion nail polish that creates a unique look on the nails.  I will certainly wear this nail polish again!

Dupes: Covergirl "Rogue Red" and China Glaze "Riveting"


Hey guys and happy Saturday!  Where I live a lot of the high schools graduated yesterday so it is party weekend to celebrate!  Today's nail polish is a comparison post between Covergirl's "Rogue Red" and China Glaze's "Riveting."  I decided to test them both out because they look very similar in the bottle:

Covergirl's "Rogue Red" and China Glaze's "Riveting."

As you can see the polishes are very similar in the bottle but on the nail they are not exact dupes.  "Rogue Red" has the tiniest bit more red in the background color but both polishes are stunning in the shimmer department.  That being said while they aren't an exact match to each other you probably don't need both in your collection.

If you want to know more about China Glaze's "Riveting" or Covergirl's "Rogue Red" check out my previous posts.

Overall I really like both Covergirl's "Rogue Red" and China Glaze's "Riveting."  However, given the choice between them if I could only own one I would definitely go with China Glaze's "Riveting" because I like the brighter orange.  However both polishes were limited releases - "Riveting" for the movie The Hunger Games and "Rogue Red" for the second movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Nicole by OPI "My Sol Shines Brighter"


Hello all and happy Thursday!  Today's nail polish is Nicole by OPI's "My Sol Shines Brighter" which part of a limited edition Special K cereal box release from 2014.  You had to collect enough codes off the boxes to redeem online.  (Shout out to my parents who helped me eat all those boxes of cereal!)

"My Sol Shines Brighter" is a bright reddish-pink nail polish.  The formula of "My Sol Shines Brighter" was slightly watery but it still applied very well to my nails.  After two coats the polish was completely opaque and streak free.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "My Sol Shines Brighter" for five full days before there were chips.

Overall I am pleased with Nicole by OPI's "My Sol Shines Brighter."  This nail polish is fun and happy and I can see myself wearing it a lot - especially as a pedicure color!
