Hello dear friends!
I've noticed that I haven't done a polish related post for ages *SCANDAL*, so I thought I would introduce you to my newest lacquer acquisitions!
Hope you enjoy
OPI - CASINO ROYALE
This polish looks really bright and quite scary in the bottle but once it's on the nails, it turns into a very wearable burgundy with a berry undertone!
I've been wearing it non stop on my nails - In my opinion, this shade just screams Winter!
RIMMEL - PURPLE RAIN
Please excuse the messy application, I was having trouble with my top coat! eek
Fran from BeenThereDoneThatGotTheLipstick sent me this polish a while ago and I absolutely love it. It's perfect for those of you who are afraid of black or simply don't like the look of it. The opaque formula in combination with the wide brush make the application super easy. In addition, it lasted a whole week on my nails!
P.S. If you don't know Fran's blog already, you should definitely check her out!! She does the most amazing reviews ever!!! I've never seen such a dedicated blogger! Plus, she's super sweet :)
OPI - LIVE AND LET DIE
Deep forest green with gold and green specks
Beautiful shade, easy application, long-lasting...BUT (yes there is always a BUT!), it did look a bit dull on my nails (even with top coat).
Other than that, I think it's a very unique shade and definitely worth checking out.
ESSIE - MERINO COOL
My new holy grail taupe-mink-mauve color!
Seriously, I cannot express how happy I felt when I discovered this nail polish!
If you're fair skinned like me, you'll probably know what I'm talking about. While some taupe polishes look kind of muddy on me, others are too warm and thus clash with my skin tone...
However, this cool-toned mink-taupe is absolutely PERFECT!!
Besides, it's very opaque, easy to apply and super long lasting!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
CHINA GLAZE - PURR-FECT PLUM
Unfortunately, this lacquer was a bit of a disappointment...Like the name suggests, I expected it to be a purple-ish burgundy color but instead it leans more towards a red based burgundy. Does that even make sense?
Well anyway, I thought it would be more on the purple/plum side...Other than that, it's perfectly fine: easy application, longevity, etc.
Thanks for reading <3
