Day 276: Essie- A Cut Above

Hey Dolls,

I have a fun glitter polish for you today it is called A Cut Above from Essie’s Holiday 2011 Luxeffect Collection. A Cut Above is a mix of light pink small, medium and hex glitter in a clear base. This reminds me of Deborah Lippmann Some Enchanted Evening, it’s not an exact dupe but it’s similar! The formula was good, it wasn’t thick and the glitter spread really easily. I wasn’t having to try and place pieces glitter or apply it in a strange way to get the glitter on looking nicely. In my pictures I am going to show you I used one coat by itself, then one coats over Wet N’ Wild Ink Well and then three or four coats by itself to show you the different ways you can wear this one. The Luxeffects Collection is available now! I have seen it in regular chain stores like Ulta or in drugstores also looks like a few of the etailers already have the collection up…transdesign.com, aveyou.com, 8ty8beauty.com, head2toebeauty.com all of them have them  just to name a couple. Also I spotted a few people selling them on ebay. Essie retails for $8 each! Until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel…..

Day 263: Deborah Lippmann – Candy Shop

Hey Dolls,

Today I have an awesome polish for you it is called Candy Shop From Deborah Lippmann’s Get This Party Started Collection. Candy Shop is a bubble gum pink base with loads of glitter mixed in a sea of color, both hex glitter and small round glitter. I love the way this looks in the bottle and the nail, I thought maybe I wouldn’t but as soon as I swatched it I was in love. Candy Shop comes in a trio set it as comes with Happy Birthday and Forget you. I already shown you Happy Birthday so I will show you Forget You soon, the bubblegum pink in Candy Shop is so fun and girly it reminds me of cotton candy so yummy and delicious looking. Candy Shop is basically Happy Birthday with a bubblegum pink base. Two coats of candy shop gives you a few bald spots but if your bold and don’t think it’s over kill you can do a three coats or if you prefer you can put Candy Shop over a similar shade of pink and you won’t have to worry about bald spots. It kinda of looks  like a rainbow peed on your nails. lol It’s not a bad thing really, but it’s very colorful and somehow the pink base in this shade makes the difference. The color scheme does make the name of this shade fit quite well. It’s pink, it’s colorful, it’s bright, and it makes me think of candy. Formula is a bit on the gloopy side as well, but it didn’t make application difficult. I love it I want to eat my nails that’s how great this shade is on to nail porn, until next nail polish, same nail time, same nail channel……
