Revlon Holographic Pearls Transforming Effects

Revlon Holographic Pearls over Quo Ampd

I was torn over choosing a polish for the alphabet nail challenge today.  I have a couple of polishes that start with H but with the exception of Zoya Hazel which I have used a number of times on the blog and defeats the purpose of trying new polishes and blogging others from my collection.  So I decided to go with Revlon’s Holographic Pearl Transforming Effects instead. I actually picked up a new polish from Dollarama this week meaning to[Read more]

So it turns out that I do not have many polishes beginning with G in my collection for today’s Alphabet Nails post and after trying a few, I found I really don’t like most of the ones I have either.  I have had a lot of luck with Trendy Nails polishes from THEFACESHOP and picked this one up around Christmas meaning to wait for warmer weather so Trendy Nails GLI030 is brought to you by the letter G.

I love trying new polishes and noticed that Sarah from Workaday Beauty had posted several manicures with Avon polishes recently.  Avon isn’t the first brand you think of when you are buying polish but Sarah had mentioned the great quality so I was excited to try some out.  While I have some of the Gel Finish polishes she recommended, I also got this Nailed It set of Precious Petals mini polishes from Mark. by Avon. The Precious Petals set includes[Read more]

CND Vinylux Fragrant Freesia Stamped Nail Art

I reviewed the entire Flora & Fauna collection by CND last year and was surprised to find I really liked Fragrant Freesia as I tend not to wear a lot of nude polishes or pinks.  It is least pigmented of the collection but is absolutely beautiful when worn.  A pearly nude pink with light flecks similar to those found in Wild Moss from the same collection. It is fairly sheer, so three coats are needed to get full opacity and hide[Read more]

Zoya Edyta & Quo Bling It On

Zoya Edyta with Quo Bling It On

Wow, E already in the alphabet nails series.  Today I have a manicure with Zoya Edyta and Quo Bling It On.  Edyta is a polish that I have a love hate relationship with.  I love to wear it but hate photographing it because pictures never show its true beauty.  I also hate that it stains my nails if I wear it for a few days, even with two coats of base coat! Zoya describes Edyta as a complex mixture of gold, olive,[Read more]
