Hello there! These are still posts which feature my nail art slump days, so this is just another glitter layering :) I went with a pretty purple layering using Nicole by OPI Love song and Inner sparkle.
Simple and pretty! I love the glitter combination in Inner sparkle ^^
Hi everyone :) I went with a workplace appropriate but still glittery look a while back using Ulta3 Earl grey and Essence Glitz & glam.
The shimmer in Glitz & glam gives my base shade a greener look, which I'm loving. I was surprised by the Essence topper; I thought it would be a dupe to A-England She walks in beauty, but it's definitely different and very pretty!
Hello there! :) I did these pink roses a while back so my memory's a bit rusty in terms on the polishes used - I'll try my best though. I applied two coats of OPI My very first knockwurst as a base, and then added a glitter gradient on my index and pinky using OPI You pink too much. I painted on some roses on my middle nail using OPI Hey baby, Australis Sitting on a cloud and Misa Dirty, Sexy, Money. I took my dotting tool and Sitting on a cloud for the dots on my ring finger.
Hi everyone! My apologies for my sudden absence - real life required some extra time so I wasn't able to spend as much time on the blog. But I'm back now (with some exciting giveaways planned!), so I'll dive straight back into the polish :)
I did some quick swatches of OPI's Tinted Top Coats collection a while back and from index to pinky:
Be magentale with me, Don't violet me down, I'm never amberrassed, I can teal you like me.
My swatches show two coats over a white base.
In terms of formula, it was thick and goopy and prone to bubbling. I had to be very careful to let each coat dry between coats to ensure no bubbling.
I decided to do some quick nail art with the four shades! I simply used the brush from the bottle to make swipes over a white base.
The Tinted Top Coats collection is now available in David Jones, Myer and selected salons across Australia. Each bottle retails for $19.95.
What do you think, have you picked up any of these shades?
Hi ladies! Rimmel recently released a new and improved formula to their Moisture Renew Lipsticks in 13 new shades. As the name suggests, I found the lippies to be quite moisturising for my lips - no dry feeling whilst I wore them.
There were a range of brighter shades, darker and vampier ones as well as the more neutral shades. Me being me, I leaned towards the brighter shades, and also a dark and vampy plum.
From the shades I swatched, I found they were quite pigmented.
Back to Fuchsia is a beautiful bright raspberry. It's definitely right up my alley!
Amethyst Shimmer has a fine shimmer and results in a pearly looking finish. To be honest, it looked rather like a 'grandma' shade and not one I will be reaching for often - it doesn't look particularly flattering on me as well.
In Love with Ginger is another huge winner for me. I love this orange toned red and is bold, yet wearable. I find this shade of red easier to wear compared to blue toned reds anyway.
Diva Red is a darker red. Very bold and sophisticated!
Sloane's Plum was the shade I was most excited to try, but also the least flattering on me. It made me look rather vampire like - I guess I'm not a dark plum kinda gal.
I wore my two favourite shades and managed to find some good lighting to take a few photos. Unfortunately, my actual lip swatches still turned out duller than what is seen in real life.
Back to Fuchsia:
In Love with Ginger:
The wear time on the lippies were average; around 3-4 hours before fading. Eating and drinking will definitely affect wear time and create the unfortunate 'ring of colour' effect.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick are available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W and selected pharmacies across Australia. They retail at $13.95 each.
What do you think, are there any you think you might want to pick up?
