Sally Hansen Hard As Nails "Ice Queen"


Hi guys and happy almost Friday!  (Who else is ready for the weekend!)  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails' "Ice Queen."

"Ice Queen" is a pretty blue, purple and silver glitter in a clear base.  It is a very girly polish that I quite like.  Formula wise "Ice Queen" was watery, however I was easily able to dab the glitter on to my nail easily.  As with many glitters, "Ice Queen" is meant to be worn on top of some colored polishes, so I decided to test some combinations out!


The first polish I decided to test out with "Ice Queen" was OPI's "Meet Me On The Star Ferry."  This combination was beautiful and very subtle.  They went together so well that you wouldn't even know it was two separate polishes.  I will definitely wear these two polishes together again!


The second nail polish I decided to test with "Ice Queen" is OPI's "Give Me Space."  This combination turned out to look like the glittery night sky!  And to date has been one of my favorite looks!

If you want to know more about OPI's "Meet Me On The Star Ferry" or OPI's "Give Me Space" check out my posts from earlier this year.

Overall I am pleased by Sally Hansen Hard As Nails "Ice Queen."  While not a beautiful looking polish in the bottle it combines very well with lots of polishes to create some fun looks!  I can't wait to try out some more polishes with "Ice Queen"!

OPI "Give Me Space"


Hello guys and happy Tuesday!  Today's nail polish is OPI's "Give Me Space" which I think has a really great name.  (Because sometimes we can all use a little space!)

"Give Me Space" is a beautiful deep royal blue polish with a holographic shimmer.  Formula wise, this nail polish was perfect and applied with ease.  After only one coat of polish, "Give Me Space" was completely opaque and streak free.  However I added a second coat for the picture above (as always).  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Give Me Space" for six days before I noticed any chips.

Overall I am really pleased by OPI's "Give Me Space."  Everything about this nail polish is wonderful, especially the fact that it can be worn as a one-coater!  I will certainly be wearing this nail polish a lot more often!

Essie "Turquoise & Caicos"


Hi everyone!  I am home from vacation now and I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. I wish I could still be in the mountains!  But anyways, today's nail polish is Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos."

"Turquoise & Caicos" is a lovely aquamarine colored nail polish.  Formula wise, "Turquoise & Caicos" was good and applied pretty well.  However I did have to wipe the brush almost empty as to not flood my nail beds.  After two coats the polish was not at all opaque and you could still see my nail.  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Turquoise & Caicos" for only only one day because it did not look great on my nails.  (That being said when I applied a third coat it looked and wore much better!)


In a previous post I compared Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos" to a few other aquamarine polishes to see if there were any dupes.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Essie's "Turquoise & Caicos."  I absolutely adore the color but it was annoying that even after thee coats there were still some visible streak marks.  I will probably stick to wearing the OPI dupe for "Turquoise & Caicos" that I have., however I would be willing to give this polish another go.

Sinful Colors "Treasure Chest"


Hello guys and happy happy Friday!  I had the day off of work and went to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC.  (It is the largest privately owned home in the United States and a favorite place of mine!) So without further ado, today's nail polish is Sinful Colors "Treasure Chest."

"Treasure Chest" is a gorgeous aquamarine colored blue polish with a silver shimmer that reminds me of the ocean!  Formula wise this nail polish was perfect and went on my nails without any trouble!  After two coats, "Treasure Chest" was entirely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this polish for four days before there were a few chips.

Overall I love Sinful Colors "Treasure Chest."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect and I can't wait to wear it again very soon!

Essie "Going Guru"


Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!  Today's nail polish is Essie's "Going Guru" which was part of Essie's 2016 Resort Collection. My "Going Guru" comes from the Resort Collection mini set which looks like this:


"Going Guru" is a gorgeous mint green colored polish and looks absolutely lovely against my slightly tanned self!  Formula wise this nail polish was very watery and took some patience to apply.  After two coats, "Going Guru" was surprisingly opaque, though there were.a couple of visible streak marks. In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Going Guru" for three to four days before it began to flake off.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Essie's "Going Guru."  I adore the pistachio color but the formula was difficult to work with.  In the end I will probably give this nail polish another go and see if I have better luck next time.

China Glaze "Pink Or Swim"


Hello guys!  Hopefully we've all survived Monday.  Today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Pink Or Swim" which came as part of a mini collection called Roommates.  The set looks like this:


"Pink Or Swim" is a lovely, light, baby pink polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was perfect and extremely easy to apply.  After two coats, "Pink Or Swim" was entirely opaque and completely streak free, which is not always the case with pastel polishes.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for five full days before I noticed any chips.

Overall I am really happy with China Glaze's "Pink Or Swim."  I absolutely love this nail polish because the color is so lovely and it was so easy to apply and wear!  I will definitely wear "Pink Or Swim" again very soon!

OPI "Love Athletes In Cleats"


Hi guys and happy happy Saturday!  (I was so ready for the weekend!)  Today's nail polish is OPI's "Love Athletes In Cleats."  As an avid fan of baseball I couldn't love this collection more!

"Love Athletes In Cleats" is a fun bright red nail polish with a hint of red shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was perfect and very easy to apply.  After only one coat, "Love Athletes In Cleats" was completely opaque and streak free.  However, I applied a second coat for the picture above.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for five days before I noticed a couple of tiny chips.

Overall I am thrilled with OPI's "Love Athletes In Cleats."  Everything about this nail polish is perfect and I can't wait to wear it again!
