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

Essie Gel Couture Find Me My Man-Nequin Swatches

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.

The Power of Pink Avon A Box

Avon A Box Fall 2017 - The Power of Pink Box Review

While the last two Avon A Boxes I shared were fairly similar in their contents, The Power of Pink Avon A Box switched it up completely.  It includes nail polish too which I am always happy to see.  Plus a generous perfume sample.  Most of these I have tried before but always good to have travel sizes ahead of the holidays.  The Avon Power of Pink box sells for $30, which isn’t bad with a decent sized perfume sample but[Read more]

China Glaze Happily Never After (Halloween 2017)

China Glaze Happily Never After Halloween Fall 2017

It is nice to see a Halloween collection that is not the typical black, greys, and oranges!  The China Glaze Happily Never After collection is available in Sally’s now.  If you happen to be visiting the US, it is also in Ulta.  I know I will be visiting Sally’s to pick up Life’s Grimm and Crown for Whatever!  I love that they mixed up the finishes and colours in this so they can be worn anytime and don’t scream Halloween[Read more]
