FLOWER "Evening Primrose"


Hi everyone!  Today's nail polish is FLOWER's "Evening Primrose."  FLOWER is actress Drew Barrymore's make-up brand that is surprisingly reasonably priced and sold at Wal-Mart!

"Evening Primrose" is a dark teal polish with a golden shimmer.  Formula wise this polish is decent and was not too difficult to apply.  After two coats of polish "Evening Primrose" was completely opaque but because of the holographic shimmer there were visible streak marks.  As for chipping I was able to wear "Evening Primrose" for about three days before there were noticeable chips.

Overall I like FLOWER's "Evening Primrose."  The formula is nice, the color pretty, and it was nice that is was completely opaque.  Really my only dislike about this polish is that I was only able to wear it for three days, since it is such a lovely color I wanted to wear it longer!  (Which just means I need to wear "Evening Primrose" again soon!)

Maybelline "Wine And Forever"


Hi guys and happy Monday.  I hope some of you were able to catch the lunar eclipse last night, unlike me because it was too cloudy.  Since it was a blood moon I decided to pick out an oxblood colored polish to celebrate!  So today's nail polish is Maybelline's "Wine & Forever."

"Wine & Forever" is a gorgeous burgundy colored nail polish.  Formula wise "Wine & Forever" is very good and it was easy to apply.  After two coats of polish "Wine & Forever" was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping I was able to wear this nail polish for about four days before there were some visible tip chips.

Overall I am very happy with Maybelline's "Wine & Forever."  Everything about this nail polish is great and I will definitely be wearing this polish again and again!

Formula X "Impeccable"


Hi guys!  Today's nail polish is Formula X's "Impeccable."  Formula X is Sephora's brand on nail polish.  At Sephora as you purchase items you can gather rewards points which can be traded in for a variety of sample sized items, which is how I got this nail polish.

"Impeccable" is a lovely nude nail polish.  Formula wise "Impeccable" is fantastic and very easy to apply!  After two coats the polish was completely opaque and streak free and looked nice on my nails.  "Impeccable" is a very sophisticated nail polish color that can be worn by most people.  As for chipping I was able to wear "Impeccable" for five full days before there was any sign of chipping, and even then it was very minor.

Overall I am very happy with Formula X's "Impeccable."  Everything about this polish is great and I will definitely be wearing this nail polish again and again!

Nails INC "Queensgate Garden"


Hi everyone!  With today's post I will now be all caught up from my long weekend away!  (Thanks for the patience!)  Today's nail polish is Nails INC's "Queensgate Garden" which is a special glitter polish that is called Floral.

"Queensgate Garden" is a sky blue and white glitter with large flower shaped glitter in it.  The formula is hard to say because my bottle was nearly dried out (even though I bought the polish not that long ago!)  Thankfully I was able to salvage the polish by pouring in half a bottle of clear nail polish.  This is a polish that is meant to be worn as a special top coat and not alone and I had planned on trying "Queensgate Garden" over sever other polishes but decided against it because the polish was almost dry.  Also it was very difficult to get the flower shaped glitter pieces to lie flat on my nails, which was annoying.

Overall I am hugely disappointed by Nails INC's "Queensgate Garden."  I was looking forward to wearing this polish and because it had dried out I wasn't really able to do anything with it.  Since it is dried out I will be tossing this bottle out and therefore won't be wearing it again, sadly.

Bonita "Greetings Earthlings"


Hi all and happy first day of Autumn!  Today's nail polish is Bonita's "Greeting Earthing."  Bonita is a drugstore brand that is very affordable that I buy at my local Rite-Aid.

"Greetings Earthlings" is a blue-green holographic glitter that is super pretty!  Formula wise this polish is pretty good and easy to apply.  My only struggle was that the brush liked to pick up a lot of nail polish no matter how much I wiped it off on the neck of the bottle.  After two coats of "Greetings Earthlings" the polish was completely opaque and streak free!  As for chipping I was able to wear "Greetings Earthlings" for about four days before the nail polish started to chip.

Overall I am very happy with Bonita's "Greetings Earthlings."  Everything about this polish a nice and I will definitely be wearing this nail polish again and again!

Essie "Ruffles & Feathers"


Hi everyone and happy last day of Summer.  But to celebrate the last day of Summer I decided to pull out a bright turquoise polish!  Today's nail polish is Essie's "Ruffles & Feathers."

"Ruffles & Feathers" is a turquoise colored polish.  Formula wise "Ruffles & Feathers" is fairly watery.  After two coats the polish was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping I was able to wear "Ruffles & Feathers" for three days before there were tip chips.

Overall I like Essie's "Ruffles & Feathers."  Everything about this nail polish is nice, except for the watery formula.  However I will definitely wear this nail polish again because I love the color!

Julep "Nan"


Hi guys!  It's the middle of September and all the leaves are changing colors and it is very pretty!  So to celebrate the pretty Autumn leaves today's nail polish is Julep's "Nan."  Also sorry this post is a few days later than I meant!  I went to the mountains and there was no wifi or cell signal!

"Nan" is a dusty terracotta orange colored polish.  Formula wise "Nan" is fantastic and extremely easy to apply.  After two coats the polish was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping I was able to wear "Nan" for four full days before there were some minor tip chips.

Overall I am very pleased with Julep's "Nan."  Everything about this nail polish is fantastic and I received several compliments while wearing it.  So I definitely plan on wearing it again very soon!

Nicole by OPI "Sweet Dreams"


Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!  (We've nearly made it to the weekend!)  Today's nail polish is Nicole by OPI's "Sweet Dreams" which is part of the Selena Gomez collection that came out in 2013.

"Sweet Dreams" is a purple and blue chunky glitter in a clear base polish.  Formula wise "Sweet Dreams" is fantastic and very easy to apply, especially for a glitter.  Since "Sweet Dreams" has a clear base I decided to try it out as a top coat.


The first nail polish I tried as a base is Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear's "Purple Craze."  This was a nice Wintery combination and also it was a subtle ode to glitter.  It was noticeable but not over the top.

If you want to know more about Sally Hansen's "Purple Craze" check out my post from earlier this month:  LINK HERE


The second nail polish I tried as a base is Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails in "Black Heart."  This combination turned out to look like the night sky with lots of stars and shimmer!  It was very pretty and I would wear this combination again!

Overall I am very pleased with Nicole by OPI's "Sweet Dreams."  The polish is a very pretty glitter and I will definitely wear this nail polish again!

Claire's "Ducks In A Row"


Hi all!  Today's nail polish is Claire's "Ducks In A Row."  This nail polish is from the Claire's store at the mall which sell mostly costume jewelry.  Claire's nail polish is very affordable costing around $3.50 (USD) a bottle.

"Ducks In A Row" is a pastel pink and orange bar glitter in a clear base coat.  Formula wise this nail polish is nice and fairly easy to apply.  I found the trick was instead of using traditional brush strokes to pat the brush on my nail to spread the glitter out evenly.  After two coats of "Ducks In A Row" the polish was almost opaque and covered my nails nicely.  Since "Ducks In A Row" has a clear base coat I decided to test it out over a pink polish.


The pink polish I picked out is Sinful Colors' "Beautiful Girl" which is a peachy pink.  This combination turned out to be very pretty.  It reminds me of strawberry ice cream and will make a nice look for Summertime!

Overall I am very pleased with Claire's "Ducks In A Row."  It is a very pretty nail polish and easy to apply.  I will definitely wear this nail polish again by itself or paired together with another polish.

Thanks for reading my blog!  :)

Beautifully Disney "Looking For My Prince"


Hi guys!  Now that September is in full swing and the weather is starting to get cooler I decided to pull out a bright red nail polish to celebrate the changing leaves!  Today's nail polish is Beautifully Disney's "Looking For My Prince."

Beautifully Disney is Walt Disney's brand of nail polish that was sold in the theme parks and online. Disney discontinued production on the nail polishes sometime within the last year because it was still available in the parks when I went last October.  They sold full sized bottles and mini sets of four polishes.  The mini set that "Looking For My Prince" came in is called Wickedly Beautiful and looks like this:


Each of the Beautifully Disney nail polishes is based on a Disney movie or character.  "Looking For My Prince" is a bright apple red that is an ode to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  Formula wise this polish was great and very easy to apply.  After two coats of polish "Looking For My Prince" was completely opaque and streak free.  In terms of chipping "Looking For My Prince" lasted about four days before there were noticeable tip chips.

Overall I am very pleased with Beautifully Disney's "Looking For My Prince."  Everything about this nail polish is nice and I will definitely be wearing it again and again!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Purple Craze"


Hi all!  I realized that I hadn't worn a purple nail polish in a while so I decided to dig through my collection and look for a purple polish!  So without further ado, today's nail polish is Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in "Purple Craze."

"Purple Craze" is a bright neon purple nail polish.  Formula wise "Purple Craze" is slightly watery and it was somewhat difficult to apply.  After two coats the nail polish was not completely opaque and there were visible streak marks on all my nails.  As for chipping I'm not sure how long "Purple Craze" would last because it looked so terrible on my nails that I wouldn't wear it out of my house.

Overall I am disappointed with Sally Hansen's "Purple Craze."  Basically the only thing I liked about "Purple Craze" is the color because the polish was watery and difficult to apply and as a result did not look good on my nails.  I probably won't be wearing this nail polish any time soon.

Overall I am very happy with OPI's "Lunch At The Delhi."  Everything about this nail polish is nice and I will definitely continue to wear this polish regularly on my toes!

Also  Ciaté's "Ivory Queen" came as a mini bottle in the 2014 annual Advent Calendar which looks like this:


"Ivory Queen" is a gorgeous nude polish!  Formula wise "Ivory Queen" was very easy to apply and looked fantastic on my nail!  After two coats the polish was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping I was able to wear "Ivory Queen" for about five full days and even then I would have gone longer but I was itching to wear another nail polish!

Overall I am very pleased with Ciaté's "Ivory Queen."  Everything about this nail polish is great and I will definitely be wearing this polish again and again!

China Glaze "Heart Of Africa"


Hi everyone!  September is the official start of Autumn (though in North Carolina Autumn doesn't get here until mid-October) so i wanted to start pulling out some true Autumn colored polishes!  Today's nail polish is China Glaze's "Heart Of Africa."

"Heart Of Africa" is a very pretty deep burgundy color with a hint of golden shimmer.  Formula wise this polish was good, but the bottle had a very tiny brush which made it difficult to apply.  After two coats of polish "Heart Of Africa" was completely opaque and streak free.  As for chipping I was able to wear this nail polish for about three days before there were some visible tip chips.

Overall I'm very pleased with China Glaze's "Heart Of Africa."  This nail polish is great with the only downside being the bottle's tiny brush because it made it more difficult to apply.  I will definitely wear this nail polish again and again!

Sinful Shine "Skinny Dipping"


Hi everyone and happy middle of the week!  Today's nail polish is Sinful Shine "Skinny Dipping."  Sinful Shine is produced by Sinful Colors but it has Gel Tech in it so tat the nail polish lasts longer.

"Skinny Dipping" is a gorgeous neon bright blue!  The formula of "Skinny Dipping" is amazing and was super easy to apply!  Also the formula is so fantastic it can be worn as a one-coater, which is also great!  I did apply two coats of polish for the pictures though, just because I can.  However after one coat of "Skinny Dipping" there were no visible streak marks and the polish was completely opaque. As for chipping I was able to wear "Skinny Dipping" for a week before my nails had grown out and there was a gap between the nail polish and my nail bed.

Overall I am very happy with Sinful Shine's "Skinny Dipping."  Everything about this nail polish is fantastic from its one-coat covering to how long I was able to wear "Skinny Dipping" with no chips!  I will definitely be wearing this nail polish again and buying some more Sinful Shine polishes.  The final added bonus to this nail polish is that it only costs $2.99 (USD) a bottle!
