NOTW: Essie Vintage Wine

The local salon/shop where I buy my nail polish finally put out a bargain bin last week. While they were mostly blah, I did find a bottle of the gorgeous Vintage Wine.

It was tough to get a decent picture of this since I didn't have any sun (thank you Irene!). Vintage Wine is a dark wine red color with subtle shimmer. I did 2 coats, and it's just too pretty!!

NOTW: Zoya Neeka

As promised, here's a pic of Neeka for you all!

This picture was taken after 2 days of wear. Neeka is a gorgeous dark grey/purple (much darker than it looks in the bottle) with subtle red and gold shimmer. I probably could have gotten away with 1 coat, but I did 2 just to make sure there were no bare spots, and topped with Poshe. I really like this color, and I'm glad I picked it up.

Well, that's all for now. Til next time!

Zoya Haul

I took advantage of Zoya's buy 1, get 2 free promotion this past week, and just recieved my package today. So excited!!

Left to right: Faye, Neeka, Caitlin.

Faye, a gift for my friend, is a great mauve with intense gold shimmer. Neeka is a dark grey-purple with red tones and gold shimmer. Finally, Caitlin is a very pretty purple-grey.

Apparently, I am in a purple mood. I just did a manicure with Neeka (which I'll post in a few days), and I can't stop staring at my nails. So pretty!

That's all for me. Til next time!

Scherer Chameleon Calypso

Hey all! Sorry I haven't updated in a while, real life got in the way for awhile. But I'm back now with a mani from a month ago.

This is 2 coats over base, and topped with Poshe. I really really really wanted to like this polish. It looks absolutely GORGEOUS in the bottle, flashing between pink, blue, and purple. However, on the nail it was a complete fail. It mostly showed pink, flashing a silvery-green if looked at at a certain angle. Not a hint of the blue or purple :(

The formula of this was really difficult to work with. It had a tendency to pull and cause lumps if I overlapped while I was applying. Really annoying. Then, I ended up with brail nails, the bubbling was the worst I've ever seen.

Needless to say, I probably won't be purchasing any more Scherer Chameleon polishes any time soon.

That's all for now! Til next time!!
