Fun day today! Although super tired now …but I am excited !!
The winter is here and I was running around the malls to get winter gear for my kids .. And yes :)) a little look see at cosmetics …
I came across Sephora store. I have passed it many times but for some reason didn’t ever like it Enought to walk-in .. But today I made my mind and took the leap and to my surprise I don’t know why I was avoiding it all this time …
Anyway , my mission was to buy a nice subtle but striking glitter top coat. So I tried on a few .. Now I did have a Nail paint on me already .. This one here ,
But I was quick enough to try a few while rushing out..
Starting with the Index finger , I am wearing two (very badly applied, but at least I tried it on… ) Marc Jacobs Nail Paint from his latest cosmetics collection: Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine nail Lacquer, 148 Glinda , Silver Glitter… It’s retailed at at $18 for 0.43 oz at Sephora Stores only. I must be honest, I did see the YouTube launch of the product line and this one color instantly hit my fancy at the time … The bottle was super cute and quite unique. The brush was medium thickness and the formula was good enough ( I don’t find it “wow”, but it was nice and thick and actually not that bad ) . The polish sparkles, it’s beautiful and I think my lousy picture doesn’t quite deliver justice , but it’s actually beautiful. It’s clear shimmer and a lot of it !! It’s not really silver , it’s actual Silver Glitter that makes it sparkle.
The middle finger has the sephora Formula X : Hubba Hubba … Retailed at $12.50 for a 0.4 oz , it’s described as Silver Iridescent glitter ..but I found it quite unattractive and “cheap, little girl, play time glitter polish”.. It’s multi colored fine glitter that actually looks like Golden base when applied on nails along with big ugly silver glitter chunks .. It looks like a polish I would rather not wear at all than wear this polish .. That’s my personal opinion ..
The final polish on my ring finger is Sephora Formula X – Oh Zone! And I must admit I was absolutely in love at first sight ..!! It’s multi colored glitter on clear base, but it has a very subtle yet attractive shimmer. It was an instant attraction and I must tell you that my “not such a nail paint crazy as me , as long as it looks good red and burgundy colors are the same … Pink is pink .. Not baby pink, hot pink, rose pink, fuchsia …husband”.. Did love my nail paint and even paid for the buy… .double treat..!!
