Wet n' Wild - Night Prowl

Hey everyone!
How was everyone's Monday? Not too dreadful, I hope! Today I have a drugstore polish for you guys, Night Prowl. This polish is actually amazing for a drugstore find. It is a sheer black polish packed with loads of purple/magenta glitter. I know that sheers are never easy to build up, but this was actually totally opaque within 3 coats. I can see myself wearing this colour a lot for the winter time. I adore it!

The pictures you see were taken indoors with artificial light (I swatched this when we were having our dark dreary weeks.. which seemed to have lasted a month!)

See all that glitter! LOVE.
I have to say, I am very impressed with this polish. I love WnW polishes because they do have some pretty colours, and they are very easy on my bank account!
Have you guys tried Night Prowl? Any other WnW polishes you love?

Have a great night, guys :)

NOX Twilight - Citrus

Evening. :)

I'm back from the Falls and had such a great time! I can't wait to go to school there in the fall.

Tonight I'm showing you one of the Twilight polishes from NOX. I've actually never seen/read any of the Twilights and never got into the craze, but when I saw this polish on sale for a dollar, I figured "why not?" Citrus is a pinky-orange polish with flecks of gold glitter that really shimmer in the sun. I really wanted to like this polish, but it's just not my style and I've never worn it as a full mani, so I'm not sure how great of wear it is.

What you see in the pictures is 3 coats to get it opaque. Formula was pretty decent.
That's it for tonight! Did you guys scoop up any of the other Twilight polishes? What do you think of them?

Happy Polishing!

American Apparel - Malibu Green

Hey all!

Another dark, dreary day. Boo. So, to make me feel a bit better, I have been indulging in the new show, The Glee Project. Have you guys seen it? I'm a huge Gleek, and this show is not disappointing me. There's one girl on it that I can see winning (Lindsay), and I can really see her playing a character who tries to become the new queen B and knock Quinn Fabray off her high horse and really give her a run for her money! (Like I said, total Gleek).

Anyway, today I have another AA polish (in case you can't tell, I really love them, ha!). This one is Malibu Green, a  bright, vivid green-y turquoise cream that stains your fingers really bad! My fault for not putting a base coat on, tsk tsk.

I got full coverage in 2 coats, and no problems with the formula, but then again I never do!

Are you guys sold on this polish? It's not one of my favourites from AA, but I still like it. Plus, I have a shirt that matches this exact colour!

Also, I'm going away to Niagara Falls for a couple days, so I won't have any new posts, but I will when I return! Have a great couple of days. :)

Essie - Turquoise & Caicos

Hey everyone!

Wow! It's been a while since I've been able to post some actual swatches. I finally got a computer cord for my laptop, but unfortunately broke my camera :( SO I had to order a new one of those, and it is on it's way, so those POTC swatches will be up soon as promised (hopefully!)

Tonight I have a lemming I had for the longest time, Turquoise & Caicos! It is from the Resort Collection from last year, I believe and I finally got this polish when I went to South Carolina on vacation. I'm kicking myself in the butt now though for not picking up Splash of Grenadine :( I really want that polish.

My formula was a little sheer, and took 3 coats for full coverage. A robin's egg blue that just screams "summer!" to me. :)
Excuse the fluff on my finger.. clearly didn't notice that when taking the pictures!

What do you guys think? How is everyone?! I need some catching up to do!
Have a great night :)

Revlon - Craving Coral

Morning everyone!

Today I am going to share one of my summer favourites. I've gone through countless bottles of this. Revlon's Craving Coral.
I own a lot of Revlon polishes, but I always complain about the formula. Then of course I always end up buying more because they really do have some great colours and they are fairly cheap.

Craving Coral is a orange-y red coral creme that looks fantastic with a tan. I love how vibrant it is! This is 3 coats. I always, always, always get bald spots when I use Revlon. So frustrating!

 In the first picture, the colour really freaked out my camera, but it is the most accurate. Check out how bright this beauty is! Love it.

This picture muted the colour a little bit, it is much more vivid.

What do you think? Are you sold on the corals? Any other favourite Revlons?
Have a great day! :)

American Apparel - Dynasty

Hey everyone!

I had the best day; bought lots of new polishes and then sat in the water for the rest of the day (with a slight burn.. oops).

Tonight I have a polish I swatched a while ago, American Apparel Dynasty. It is a dusty mauve with a great application (as is with all AA polishes).
In the light it looks a lot different than the shade, which you will see in the pictures.

See how purple it looks?

This is more of the true colour. Such a lovely colour!
I really want to try some of the neon AA polishes, they look so fab.

Have you guys tried any of the neons recently?

Have a great night :)

Essie - Bachelorette Bash


On this dreary, grey day I have a bright pink pick-me-up. It is from Essie's new drugstore line. Not to say that it is much different from their regular salon line... The only difference being the name on the top of the cap now (which I don't really like) and one side has a sticker with "Essie" written on it.

The formula was great, as is with most Essie's I own. Bachelorette Bash is a bright fuchsia creme. It took 2 coats to get opaque and was pretty shiny without a top coat. I love this colour on my toes, too! Excuse the terrible state my nails are in, and the shade on my pinky. Oops!

2 coats; natural light
Essie is by far one of my favourite brands out there.
What are your favourite brands?

Have an awesome day!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Plum Luck

Afternoon, everyone!

It's another extremely hot day, as it has been all week, but it's not one of those hot and sunny days- it's overcast and humid. Yuck.
Today I have a Complete Salon Manicure polish for you from Sally Hansen called Plum Luck. I'll admit, in the winter I wear a lot of dark colours. I always feel odd wearing bright colours in the winter time, so because of this I have a lot of dark purples.

Plum Luck is such a nice purple! One of my favourites. It's a nice dark purple creme that covers in 2 coats. Drying time was decent.

I really do like the CSM line. They have trendy shades, and I haven't had any problems with the formula. The only thing I would complain about is the brush, but it's nothing that I can't handle.

What are some of your favourite shades from CSM line?
Happy polishing!

Milani - Rad Purple

Good evening! :)
Tonight I have the only Milani I own - Rad Purple. I have seen some blogger's have mixed reviews on this one and I still think I'm on the fence.
It is suppose to be a neon, but I wouldn't describe it as that. I do really love the colour, but I had a hard time evening it out. I kept getting bald spots. However, when the formula wanted to behave, it looked lovely. A deep purple jelly that dries to a satin-y finish.
It is nice and shiny when I applied my Seche to it.

I took a picture with and without top coat to show you each finish.

3 coats; natural light; no topcoat
3 coats; natural light; top coat

I hate how Milani neon's have opaque bottles, especially when the colour is far from matching the actual colour of the polish! Still lovely, regardless.

What are your favourite neon's from Milani? Enjoy the rest of your night :)
