Opi Scores A Goal from Opi Brazil Collection 2014

Hello friends πŸ™‚
I have another member of the Brazil Collection from Opi , called Opi Score A Goal , retailing at $9USD , it’s called rich chocolate color.
The formula was easy to work with, although it was a bit runny it did build up nicely with 2 coats.
It finishes to a nice glossy look. Pictures are without a top coat and taken in artificial light indoors.

Overall : A real nice shade, it’s more of a fall/winter color to me rather then Spring /Summer, so including this color into the collection was a bit confusing.

Opi Red Hot Rio- Brazil Collection 2014

Hey people !!

Glad today is a sunny day, cold but sunny nevertheless πŸ™‚
And what makes a better excuse for Red than a nice sunshine πŸ™‚ (like I need an excuse for red) .. Anyhow..I have a new addition to my Red collection .. The member of the Opi Brazil Collection is Red Hot Rio.. This is a very “Red” red , if you know what I mean. My initial reaction was its a dupe to Revlon Red, but I bought it anyway .. And I am glad!

Formula: Great ! Application super easy, almost a single coater but I used 2 coats for finishing. Very glossy, pictures are without a top coat.

20140306-110909.jpg

I am holding the bottle against the Revlon Red, for a color comparison. The first pictures in the sun makes it appear a dupe , the next one in shade shows a difference more clearly…The Opi one is brighter !!!!!

20140306-111052.jpg

And a most special picture, my babies’ hands with mine……..

20140306-133909.jpg

Overall : It’s a must buy for all Red fans or Opi fans or nail polish fans … :))

Essie Hide & Go Chic Collection Swatches

Hello Friends!
I was lucky to find the Essie latest collection at Ulta!! Out of 6, I grabbed the four I though were most interesting …
Here’s me sharing my joy .. πŸ™‚

First up is the Fashion Playground , a very subtle minty/pistachio green with slight silver shimmer.
The color although is very pretty, it’s a very thin formula. Needs 3-4 easy coats for the color to build up and opaqueness. The formula was so bad that I am willing to sacrifice wearing this pretty to avoid the time it takes to apply each coat and dry and apply again .. Not worth it 😦
Also the white accent nail you see is not by choice, the polish smudged on the nail and I didn’t want to wait reapplying layers on one nail , but I chose white to feel the summer ..

20140304-090921.jpg

20140304-090927.jpg

20140304-090933.jpg

Up next is Romper Room, a baby pink (Essie calls it Tea rose pink, pretty apt). This was again a 2-3 coater. The color was screaming summer, although application imperfections are not so forgiving.

20140304-101903.jpg

20140304-102047.jpg

I am holding the bottle of Essie against the Spoiled My Button fell off (Swatched here) for quick comparison ..

20140304-102332.jpg

The Essie is more toned down whereas the Spoiled by WetnWild is leaning a bit towards peachy.. So both are quite different ..

The next one is Spin the Bottle, Essie calls it a semi-sheer nude, but I found it more of a suede neutral color. It’s a 2-3 coater, formula was ok, it’s a very flat color that looked the worst on my hands, might be better suited on someone else, I didn’t like it a bit 😦

20140304-113111.jpg

20140304-113119.jpg

20140304-113128.jpg

Now I questioned the uniqueness of a neutral color by Essie, Here is a comparison :

20140304-114017.jpg
L-R : Cocktails & Coconuts, Spin The Bottle, Mamba .. Turns out , it’s is unique but not my choice.

Finally, I saved the best for the last !! The Hide & Go Chic, the collection namesake .. ! This was a thick single coater, glossy finish rich cream formula. Defined as azure blue, this is a sure hit with almost everyone !! Formula was perfect, application was super easy and it looks really nice , plus it appears a tad lighter on direct look and lighter on side view πŸ™‚

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..

20140227-162440.jpg

20140227-162447.jpg

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 ..

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.

Blush Hour : Dense fuchsia glitter.

Chasing Rainbows : Rainbow glitter with gold highlights.

Desperately Seeking Sequins : Prismatic glitter on a backdrop of shimmer.
