Gelish Nail Polish Swatch in Sugar Daddy

Gelish Nail Polish In Sugar Daddy

Today is a simple post. I have swatches of Gelish Sugar Daddy. This is part of the Nail Harmony Gelish line at Sally Beauty Supply. This polish requires the gelish system and UV light which can be purchased at the same store. I love these at home gel manicures and I get a full two weeks of wear (without chipping!) from them! This color in particular is limited edition and part of the Candyland collection. Read on for more pictures….

Another Fall polish for you! Can you tell that I’m ready for fall? This is from OPI’s Touring America Collection. I wasn’t super thrilled about any of these shades when I saw the promo photos but seeing them in person changed my mind. This shade, Road House Blues, was one of my favorites. I love my dark polishes and this is a dark blue creme that almost looks black on the nails, yet, one can tell that it isn’t pure black. I love it! Read on for more pics….

Cover Girl Intense ShadowBlast Review and Swatches

CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast

CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast in (L->R) Beige Blaze, Platinum Pop, and Forever Pink


Another Cover Girl Review today! As I had mentioned in my review of their eyeshadows, covergirl, like other drugstore brands have really been stepping up lately improving their products and rolling out a lot of really great stuff. The best thing about Cover Girl is that it’s very easily accessible and it’s price tag is very reasonable. They’ve been in the drugstore game for a long time and, honestly, up until recently I was disappointed with many of their products. However, starting with the lashblasts (which have become a staple for many women in the mascara department), they have been producing very high quality products that I have been more than impressed with. The product I’m reviewing today is their Intense Shadow Blast, not to be confused with the cream stick shadow blast – these are totally different and sooooo much better.

Sinful Colors Savage Swatch

Another nail polish swach for you! As you can tell, I love sinful colors nail polish. Here’s why: I can buy 4 colors of sinful for the price of one OPI. Don’t get me wrong, I love OPI, but I like to have a lot of colors to work with too. And, honestly, I think Sinful colors wear allllllmost as good as OPI. So, definately worth the money. The color I have today is one of their newer colors, ‘Savage.’ In the bottle, in looks like a dark teal. Oh, and it has a matte finish! I did apply a topcoat so you won’t see the matte finish on my nails. (As a topcoat un-does the matte finish on any matte nail polish). I decided on the topcoat to improve wear. Matte nail polishes wear pretty easily without one; so, that’s the downside of the awesome finish.

The pictures I took were in natural light but I did correct some of the lighting as I got a lot of light in the background. The colors looks teal indoors and a brighter teal/almost blue outside in natural light. I am impreseed with the shade, but I love teal! Enjoy the swatches!
