Sew Psyched by Essie and Girly by Revlon

Posted on

Today’s reviews are for Sew Psyched by Essie and Girly by Revlon.

Could I have picked two polishes any more opposite? Nope, I don’t think so! Both were purchased at a local drug store for their regular prices (Essie is roughly $8.00 a bottle and Revlon is usually about $4.99 a bottle).

First up is Sew Psyched.

Hot Chick Polish and Not Too Polished

Posted on

Today’s review is for indie polishes I ordered off of Etsy. The first is the one I was most excited about, Popcorn at the Drive-in by Hot Chick Physics and the second one is Tangerine by Not Too Polished. Both ladies shipped their products immediately in appropriate packaging and I was impressed with the setup of their websites. However, I was disappointed with one of the polishes once I tried it out.

Tiffany Imposter by Finger Paints

Posted on

I’m reviewing two blue polishes for this post. The first polish up is by Finger Paints and it’s called Tiffany Imposter. I actually purchased it almost a year ago from Sally’s Beauty Supply in Virginia. I’ve always admired it and have even worn it a few times so it’s long overdue for a legitimate review.

butter London

Posted on

Quite honestly I’m not sure if I should say “butter by London” or “butter London” when it comes to writing about this brand. I’ve seen it both ways on other blogs. The bottles don’t include the “by” but it sounds better to me so I’m going to keep writing it that way.

Anyway, today I went back to the MCX to take advantage of the great prices for this polish. I got three more bottles: Toff, Queen Vic, and Shandy. The $11.00 price tag was a callin’ my name and I couldn’t resist. I now have six bottles of this polish so my collection is growing. Right now I have more Essie, China Glaze, Revlon, and OPI than any other polishes but that might just change given how much I’ve enjoyed butter by London.

I got home and decided to try Queen Vic out first.

Score!

Posted on

So I was at the MCX (Marine Corps Exchange store on base that is basically like a Target that also sells designer stuff) today and found a whole stand full of butter by London polish for just $11 a bottle! I wish I hadn’t spent nearly $30 on the two bottles I ordered online last night. I thought I was being thrifty too because I had found websites selling them for up to $15 or even more but apparently I was missing out.

Of course I picked up two bottles while I was there. I got Jasper and Bossy Boots. I also picked up a polish by Sally Hansen called Fuzz-sea. Fuzz-sea is part of their newer line of “fuzzy” polishes and I hadn’t seen them ever before (which is why I’m assuming it’s at least new-ish). They were really awesome looking so I picked up the bottle that was a mix of yellows, greens, and blues; very summery! 

Obviously I’m a huge fan of butter by London so this “review” will be short but very sweet. Here are the two colors on a nail wheel:

Review Post #15

 

Today’s review is for Disco Dolls by Nicole by OPI. I saw this in the store and immediately fell in love. It’s predominantly a golden, coppery polish with random bits of different colored hexagonal and circular pieces of glitter. This polish is perfect for a night out or any kind of celebration and it catches the light in such an amazing way. I wish the sun was out while I was taking photos because it looks amazing in natural sunlight. It also applies really well and unlike most glitter polishes it’s not that hard to get off.
