Essie 2014 Resort Collection : Cocktails & Coconuts

Hello dear friends!

Today I have a member of the Essie Resort 2014 Collection, first posted here.
This one is called “Cocktails & Coconuts, a suede-beige color with silver shimmer..

cheers! cocktail dressing just got easier. the suble silver shimmer of this warm sand polish creates instant vacation glamour.
DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free

Now when I saw this color in the store, I purchased this more as a personal challenge to find an “ugly” Essie color, I did seem pretty pleased until I tried it on !!!
The formula was great. It’s a thick double or an even triple coater polish. Surely has the great Essie formula of leveling itself to a smooth cream finish. The silver shimmer is very very subtle that doesn’t quite transfer that prominently on the nails but can be seen in the bottle on careful observation. I tried to catch it on camera and not much luck 😦
Overall : Very pretty and guess what .. Looked really rich and chic..

I hate that I failed at my attempt to find a bad Essie polish and that nothing can justify my not loving this baby … So I guess I “haVE” to love it :))
This color is warm and calm and great for any formal wear or just a fun base for nail arts .. Either way .. SCORE !!
Let me know what you all think ..

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Vanity Flare

Hello dear friends !
I have another one of the Sally Hansen a Triple Shine polish to share with you all … Knowing my past horrific experience with one of the polishes from this collection (check here.) , I still wanted to give it another chance …

For starters: I absolutely loved the color!! Although the wide flat brush and narrow bottle merged with a runny formula makes it pretty nerve wracking .. The color makes up for it.. Dries fairly quick. I used two coats , one right on top of the other and they dried together very fast and gave no dragging or balding, so I am impressed. But yes you do need to be super quick once you pull the brush out of the bottle as not any amount of brush cleaning will prevent dripping down from the brush stick onto the bristles… Besides that it’s great !
And yes pictures are without a top coat and no base coat.

The following are taken at night with light falling on nails from the next room. It still gives a great color. Pictures without and with flash. This color is absolutely true on the nail as in the bottle.

Revlon Parfumerie Lavender Soap & Revlon Nail Art Shiny Matt

Hello dear friends..

I have been a bit curious about the Revlon Scented Nail Paints, Revlon Parfumerie for a while now. I have been owning the (as crazy as it sounds) “Lavender Soap”, a satin finish light lavender color. The bottle is super attractive, brush is a little smaller than usual Revlon, it’s easy to use though.
Revlon defines the collection as

A whole new way to experience color. Vibrant, shiny shades go on smoothly for flawless color then dry to light, irresistible fragrances. In 24 scented colors.

Yea…. NO ! I didn’t like the smell of laundry detergent on my nails 😦

The application was simple although being a satin formula it’s streaky. I used two coats with a top coat. The color though was pretty nice. The polish has a shine, ascent nail has a nail appliquΓ© I purchased long back for a $1 for a full sticker leaf from the dollar store.
Pictured along with Revlon Shiny Matt Nail Art Pen, used to draw fine charcoal grey lines around cuticles and extended to one side along the nail.

Overall : The color is quite pretty. The bottle seems to carry a little shimmer/shine that does come on to the nail. But unless you are a fan of “laundromat” smell, I highly doubly you can stand the smell, it’s a bit more obnoxious than the actual nail polish smell … The bottle is super pretty though.. And the polish does have a pearly-satin finish.
The nail art pen from Revlon, I will review it in another post with swatches… Let me know what you all think πŸ™‚

Opi Spotlight On Glitter 2014 Collection

Hitting stores March 2014, for all glitter fans like me ( well, who is not) is the Opi Spotlight On Glitter Collection!!
Sparkles and glitter are not just ONLY holiday nail treats but used as a top coat or ascent nail really adds that extra finish to any mani. Infact what better way to enjoy the bling than the sun!

These can be used with Glitter Off β€” a new, peel-able base coat that allows for quick and easy removal when applied beneath any glitter shade. To remove, use a cuticle stick to gently push and peel the glitter lacquer off the nail. No nail polish remover is necessary for this final step. The Glitter Off will also be available in March 2014. ( Thank God! I Wonder why no one came up with this idea long back ??)
Chk link for more info. Source Nailsmag.

Let’s meet the 6 new lovelies :

20140221-131723.jpgI Reached My Gold! : Gold confetti in this clear rainbow glitter.

Rose of Light: Rosy gold and rainbow sparkle.

You Pink Too Much – Rosy glitter in a shimmery base.
