A Sparkling New Year with Butter London

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I had a delightful Christmas with my family and had quite a few surprises under the tree this year! I want to take a moment thank my family and loved ones from everything this holiday. I cherish each and every single gift. Now on to the polish review! I recently stopped by Ulta and finally bought Butter London’s polish in Wallis, which I’ve had my eye on for ages. It has always stood out as an incredibly unique color that I couldn’t seem to find an equivalent for. The closest has been China Glaze’s Wagon Trail but it has a darker green base and less gold glitter running though it. Wallis is an olive toned polish shot with rich gold glitter that gives it an incredible glow in the sunlight. It is a bit sheer with one coat, but after applying a second coat it is fully opaque. The polish is quite easy to work with and spread through out the nail. I applied it over …

Fall Must Have – Burgundy Polish and Almond Shaped Nails

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday! Today I’ll be reviewing the Essie polish in Wrapped in Rubies. The polish is part of Essie’s permanent collection and can be purchased online or at your local drugstore.  As you can see above, based on the view from the bottle, it appears to have iridescent gold shimmer running through the rich burgundy color. Once the polish is applied, it appears to give a different effect as opposed to what the bottle initially showed. The gold lining in the polish does not translate onto the nails as depicted in the top and bottom images taken in different lighting intensities. With that being said, I still find this polish beautiful and one that I am thrilled to have in my collection.  The color itself is a rich burgundy, crimson color swirled with finely milled gold glitter making it a perfect polish for the fall and winter seasons especially during the up and coming holidays. The polish applies with ease only requiring about two coats. I applied this …

Electric Blue – Ghem Polish Review

Happy Halloween everyone! What are your exciting Halloween plans? I, unfortunately, have an exam tonight which is why the costume will be revealed tomorrow! If you haven’t voted, you can still do so today. On to the polish! This color is a gorgeous electric blue by Ghem Esmalte that applies flawlessly and opaquely. The only negative associated with this polish is that it cannot be found in the United States. I picked this up while I was visiting family in Colombia. I found a similar Zoya polish that has a slightly deeper tone of blue, but is equally as beautiful. I applied my polish on top of Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails to prevent as much staining that occurs from pigmented colors and applied Seche Vite as my fast drying top coat. Blue nails are such an uplifting and daring color on the nails that really catches the eyes in a lovely way. Don’t be afraid to try a color like this! Until next time. Take care!
