OPI "Malaga Wine"


Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving if you live in the United States!  Today's nail polish is OPI's "Malaga Wine."  Despite OPI being easily available in the United States I actually grabbed this one while on vacation in Paris, France in the Summer of 2015.

"Malaga Wine" is a stunning wine colored polish.  The formula of this polish was the tiniest bit watery but extremely easy to apply.  After only one coat, "Malaga Wine" was entirely opaque and streak free.  However I applied a second coat for the picture.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for a full six days before I noticed some small tip chips.

Overall I am really happy with OPI's "Malaga Wine."  The color is stunning and perfect for Autumn and I find this color looks fantastic with my skin tone.  I will definitely be wearing this nail polish until the bottle runs out!

Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow"


Hi guys and happy Tuesday!  This week is nice and short for me - tomorrow is my Friday!  Who else is looking forward to a long weekend of pie and shopping?  Today's nail polish is Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow."

"YOLO Yellow" is a happy sunshiny yellow colored polish.  Formula wise this nail polish was slightly watery but still easy to apply.  After two coats, "YOLO Yellow" was completely opaque and only had one or two streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for four days before I noticed any chips.

Overall I really like Sinful Colors "YOLO Yellow."  The fun happy bright color of this nail polish makes it enjoyable to wear.  I can hardly wait to wear this nail polish again!

Beautifully Disney "Off To The Ball"


 

Hello all!  It is Sunday and freezing outside, but the sky is nice and clear - although I am still ready for Summer again!  Today's nail polish is Beautifully Disney's "Off To The Ball" which is based off of Cinderella.  This nail polish came as part of a set called Wickedly Beautiful that looks like this:


"Off To The Ball" is a lovely light blue colored polish, just like Cinderella's ball gown.  Formula wise this polish was fair - not thick or watery.  After two coats, "Off To The Ball" was not entirely opaque and there were a lot of streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this polish for two days before it began to flake off at the tips.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Beautifully Disney's "Off To The Ball."  The color is lovely but it didn't wear well on the nail.  I'm undecided if I would wear this nail polish again.

Smooshy Nail Art


Hello everyone!  It is finally Saturday so I thought I would break out the nail art (which I am not allowed to wear at work).  So today I have decided to try smooshy nails!  To create the smooshy nails I selected these polishes:


The nail polishes used to create this look are Essie's "Aim To Misbehave" and A England's "Lady Of The Lake."  These two polish unintentionally created a nice look for any East Carolina University fans.  To create a smooshy look I used my stamper and placed dots of both polishes like this:


Then I used the stamper to tap my nails until the nail had a look I liked.  I repeated this for all of my nails.  To help protect the skin around my nails I used Bundle Monster Color's "Poli Peel" which helped but I still need some work to go using it.

If you want to know more about Essie's "Aim To Misbehave" check out my post from earlier this year.

Overall this nail art was fun and simple.  I like how these two colors mixed and the smooshing was extremely easy to do!  I definitely plan on trying this out again soon!

Sally Hansen Triple Shine "Sea Through"


Hi guys and happy Friday!  I hope everyone is looking forward to Thanksgiving next week (if you live in the United States).  Today's nail polish is Sally Hansen Triple Shine's "Sea Through" which is a buildable jelly.

"Sea Through" is a blueish jelly that you can build to have a lighter or darker color.  Formula wise this polish was good and easy to apply.  Here's how "Sea Through" looked after one coat:


As you can see the color is light/almost nonexistent.  To continue building I added a second coat of "Sea Through" and my nails looked like this:


Two coats of "Sea Through" was more noticeable but still not nearly opaque.  I added a third coat of "Sea Through" to make the color even more noticeable.


Overall Sally Hansen Triple Shine's "Sea Through" is a fun and unique polish.  While I will probably never wear this nail polish by itself I can see it being a lot of fun with some nail art.

If you want to see how "Sea Through" compares to Sally Hansen Triple Shine's "Ice Tint" check out my Dupe Post from earlier this year.

Essie "Aim To Misbehave"


Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!  We are halfway through the week and on a downhill slide to the weekend!  Today's nail polish is Essie's "Aim To Misbehave" their 1,000th nail polish.

"Aim To Misbehave" is a bright golden yellow shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was watery and had a tendency to flood my cuticles.  However, after two coats, "Aim To Misbehave" was mostly opaque and had no visible streak marks.  As for chipping, I was able to wear this nail polish for four days before I noticed an chips.

Overall I have mixed feelings about Essie's "Aim to misbehave."  I absolutely adore the color and its wear time however the watery formula took a lot of patience.  That being said, I am definitely going to give "Aim to Misbehave" a second chance because I don't have any other polishes like it in my collection!

Color Club "Chill Out"


Hi everyone!  I hope everyone survived Monday intact.  Today's nail polish is Color Club's "Chill Out" which is a color changing polish.  I'm pretty excited to try this polish out as it is my first time playing with heat sensitive polish!

"Chill Out" is a pastel mint color when hot and changes to a turquoise color when cold.  Formula wise this polish was the tiniest bit thick but it was still easy enough to apply without much annoyance.  After two coats, "Chill Out" was entirely opaque and had no visible streak mark.  "Chill Out" also surprisingly dried with a matte finish, which was quite fun!  In terms of chipping, I was able to wear "Chill Out" for three full days before the polish began to chip.

Here's how "Chill Out" looked when warm:


And here is how "Chill Out" looked after being run under cold water:


Overall I absolutely love this nail polish!  Both colors were gorgeous and it changed color dramatically.  I enjoyed playing with this polish for several days and I will definitely wear "Chill Out" again and again!
