China Glaze Crown For Whatever Swatches & Review

China Glaze Crown for Whatever Halloween Happily Never After Swatch

I have a love hate relationship with matte nail polishes.  I love the way they look, especially as matte top coat tends to dull colours a little but without a top coat, they don’t last on my nails.  A lot of it is body chemistry, most polishes don’t last for me so matte is lucky to last a day.  But I had to have China Glaze Crown for Whatever, a matte blurple polish from the Happily Never After collection released[Read more]

Essie Gel Couture Twill Seeker Swatches and Review

Essie Gel Couture Twill Seeker Swatch

Now that I know Essie Gel Couture have bigger brushes, I am excited to try more of them.  The first being Twill Seeker.  I thought that it would be close to For The Twill of It from their regular collection, but it is not.  Not a bad thing, it is a beautiful polish, just not a longwear version of the original essie favourite.  For The Twill of It is more of a duochrome while Twill Seeker is a dark purple-plum depending[Read more]

Essie Gel Couture Find Me A Man-nequin Swatches & Review

I have a love hate relationship with Essie but I think their Gel Couture range may have changed that.  I have fairly big nails.  Not that they are extra long or anything, but they are not teeny tiny and that Essie brush drives me crazy.  Just requires too many brush strokes which can make some polishes look worse.  They have some great colours, good formulas but a brush makes all the difference.  Which is why I have not tried the[Read more]

China Glaze Life’s Grimm (Happily Never After – Halloween 2017)

China Glaze Life's Grimm Swatch - Happily Never After Collection

I originally thought that Life’s Grimm from the China Glaze Happily Never After collection for Halloween 2017 was black with gold based on the press images.  But turns out it is a beautiful blackened hunter to dark olive green with green and gold in it.  Out now at Sally’s in Canada, I found a bottle at Winners for $5.99.  Nail Polish Canada also has the full collection if you want them. It goes on a little darker than the bottle[Read more]
