Current Makeup Collection 2014

Saturday May 17, 2014 comments   

It’s been over a year since I’ve done a “current makeup” post. The last collection post was in April 2013. Unfortunately in a year’s time I’ve tried things, used them up, and didn’t or couldn’t rebuy so those things can’t be shown.

When taking these photos I realized I’m really happy with the amount I currently have. Not too much but not too lacking either for my needs. I used to feel like I always had too much and it gave me a lot of guilt. But I don’t sweat it much these days.

OPI Glitter Off with Mermaid Style

Wednesday April 16, 2014 comments   

Last week I got in some new nail polishes.

OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
Deborah Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream & Mermaid’s Kiss

I loathe wearing glitter because it’s not easy to remove. I know there are “tricks” but those tricks take extra time too! So when I saw OPI has put out a natural nail base coat that peels off for glitter removal I bought it as well as 2 shades from Deborah Lippmann’s The Mermaids collection.

Though Zappos decided to send my single order of 2 polishes in separate boxes with a ton of package filler. The conservationist in me was in total shock.

All-in-all I’m happy with the base coat. I had read reviews and knew what to expect before I ordered it. It’s good for a day or two of a glitter manicure. The polish peels off easily especially after a hot shower or bath. My polish began chipping and peeling by day 2. The base coat dries quickly and Deborah Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream & Mermaid’s Kiss dry quickly as well with a single coat that I don’t feel annoyed by the short life-span of the base coat. I haven’t needed any polish remover with it so this feels more like an excellent route on the week’s I’m finicky and want a new glitter look every couple of days.

I did try it with non-glitter polish and it didn’t work as well. Remained tacky and peeled off within the day.
