Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel


My husband and I went to Anaheim the other weekend for our 10th anniversary and I managed to come across a CVS! To American's, it must sound silly that I was so excited about it because the prices and selection are fantastic.

Anyway, I came across a sale on Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamels, buy 1 get 1 50% off.  I believe that their regular price was the same price in Canada, but we almost never see these kinds of sales. I decided to give Stiletto (black) and Sequin (silver foil) a go. I didn't buy the base coat and top coat because I found the polishes to be overpriced in general so I didn't want to spend more on them. Maybe it would have made a bigger difference if I did though. The enamels are supposed to be a gel hybrid that use regular light to cure, which means that you do not need a UV lamp to set it.

OPI Metallic 4 Life


So I have a new favourite glitter polish. Before it was Nicole by OPI's Nicole's Nickel, an amazing mix of gun metal glitters in a black jelly. Now my new love is OPI's Metallic 4 Life, which was released with the Nicki Minaj collection in December or January. All I can say is that it is DA BOMB!

It has multi-sized silver glitters in a black jelly base. Like Nicole's Nickel, it is next to opaque, full coverage in 2-3 coats. In this photo, I have 2 coats on top of Sinful Colors' Black on Black. I used a black base in vain to try and prevent chipping.
