OPI | A Definite Moust-Have

Hi everyone!

Today I have OPI’s A Definite Moust-Have to share with you.

OPI A Definite Moust-have swatch 1d

 

A Definite Moust-Have is a bright pink with silver shimmer. I applied two coats with topcoat.

The formula was very pigmented – so much so, that I barely needed a second coat for complete coverage. This looked a lot more coral than pink on my nails, but I think that will vary depending on your skintone.

Spring Gradient

Hi everyone!

I apologize for my unannounced absence – last week I went on a mission trip with my school and I’ve been busy catching up on work that I missed. Today I have a simple spring-inspired gradient to share with you!

Image

I started with a base of Revlon Bubbly and sponged Illamasqua Blow on top. I finished the look with OPI Matte Topcoat.

Image

The pink and yellow blended together to make a gorgeous peachy-orange that reminded me of a sunset! I loved the final effect – it was so summery!

Orly | Aqua Pixel

Hi everyone!

Today I have Aqua Pixel from Orly to share with you.

Orly Aqua Pixel swatch 1

Aqua Pixel is an aqua glitter. I applied two coats with topcoat.

Orly Aqua Pixel swatch 2

The formula was very opaque and gave great coverage at just two coats. It dried slightly more textured than a typical glitter, but I don’t know if it was rough enough to really be considered a textured polish. Still, it requires a few coats of topcoat for a completely smooth finish.

Orly | Passion Fruit

Hi everyone!

It’s April 1st, so I decided to pull out some of my neon polishes! Today I’m going to show you one of my favorites – Orly Passion Fruit!

Image

Passion Fruit is an neon pink jelly. I applied three coats over white with topcoat.

Image

The formula was kind of thick but not horrible. Because it is a jelly, you need to apply several coats to get complete coverage. Instead of applying multiple layers of polish, I decided to layer this over white. Not only did it take fewer coats to be completely opaque, but it also made the color even brighter!

Revlon | Strawberry Electric

Hi everyone!

How was your Monday? My day was kind of long but it wasn’t horrible! Today I have Strawberry Electric from Revlon to show you.

Image

Strawberry Electric is a fuchsia with blue and pink shimmer. I applied two coats with topcoat.

Image

The formula was opaque but very thick. I’ve had my bottle for several years now and adding thinner didn’t do a lot to help the consistency.

This is a beautiful shade that puts me in the mood for warm weather!

Sephora by OPI | Havana Dreams

Hi everyone!

I apologize for my unannounced absence – this past week has been very busy! Today I have Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams to show you.

Image

Havana Dreams is a sky blue creme. I applied three coats without topcoat.

Image

The formula was watery and runny. I also experienced quite a bit of streaking.

This polish screams spring to me! Now, if only the weather were more spring-like..

OPI | Brisbane Bronze

Hi everyone!

How is your week going so far? I am still exhausted from the weekend, so it’s been hard for me to focus during school. Today I have Brisbane Bronze to show you.

Image

Brisbane Bronze is a copper metallic. I applied two coats with topcoat.

Image

The formula was very pigmneted – so much so that it was almost a one coater. It is slightly brushstrokey and emphasizes imperfections on the nail.

If you’re looking for a polish that is the exact color of a penny, look no further!
