And here is a little glitter tip that might just make your life loads better…

When ever we order Pizza Take-outs we get all our extra’s like Chilli’s and such in little plastic containers.

I keep mine and use them for various Nail Art storage options but one of my favs is as a glitter catcher!

Revlon Reds

***Please be advised the Nail Polish in this post was sent to me by Revlon.

I have not always liked Red Nail Polish, but in doing this post I have come to like a dark reds. I am still not a fan of bright  based reds (True Reds), I prefer a blue based red. That is probably because of my fair skin tone too.

Did you know that your skin tone affects how a red polish looks?

If your skin is dark or has golden undertones, bright, true reds look best. To make pink skin look less ruddy, use lighter orange-reds. If you’re pale, the contrast of a blue-red is striking.

Revlon Review Blue & Green

***Please be advised the Nail Polish in this post was sent to me by Revlon.

When I first saw Revlon Nail Enamel “Muse” I thought… Avo Dip hehe.

520 Muse- Revlon Nail Enamel

520 Muse- Revlon Nail Enamel

Dont you think it looks like yummy dip? I was actually surprised that I liked it. In the bottle it looks so different compared to when you swatch it. It looks very light when in the bottle but once swatched it is such a pretty rich but still soft green. It has a very creamy opague finish and literally need 2 light coats. It also has a really great glossy finish.

480 Chic- Revlon Nail Enamel

480 Chic- Revlon Nail Enamel

I like to refer to this type of Blue as a dusty blue as there is just the slightest grey tinge to it. I love “dusty” colours, they feel vintage to me and I am a big fan of vintage anything! My pinterest can vouch for that 😀

I am a self proclaimed blue nail polish addict. And so it makes sense that I love this polish!

This swatch is 2 coats of polish. It also has a very creamy opague finish.

I must say I am a big fan of both of these colours. What do you think? Would you wear these colours?

Revlon Purples

***Please be advised the Nail Polish in this post was sent to me by Revlon

So this month Revlon sent some pretty winter hues, I will focus on the purples today. Starting with Revlon Nail Enamel 211 Charming.

pizap.com13732761255931

Revlon Nail Enamel 211 Charming.

I really adore this colour. Its a beautiful creme lilac that only requires 2 even steady coats. I did have trouble with streaking on one of my nails but if you keep your hand steady you should be fine.

Then I found… ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in 260 Bold Sangria! And I swooned!

Revlon

ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel in 260 Bold Sangria!

This polish is so pretty I cannot get over it! I swatched it as soon as I got it! If you love dark nails I suggest this polish hands down! I wore this polish for a good week before I took it off and for me that is rare! It started to chip about 5 days after I applied it. In its defense I did a lot of dishes that week (So wear gloves!). I painted 2 coats.

Essence Winter Hues

Winter Hues

Essence has some beautiful shades that are perfect for Winter. Below you will find swatches that closely match the hues above.

To start with we have Essence Colour & Go 146 That’s What I Mint!

146 That's What I Mint!

146 That’s What I Mint!

That’s What I Mint! is my favorite Essence Colour & Go polish. When I saw it on the Essence Website I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. As soon as it was in store I rushed to go get it! It has a beautiful creme & gloss finish and only requires 2 coats.

Second is Essence Colour & Go 135 I’m Bluetiful

135 I'm Bluetiful

135 I’m Bluetiful

I do love blue polish, I have so much of it and this one is just too pretty its a soft but strong blue with a stunning glitter overtone. This swatch is 2 coats of polish.

This product has officially been discontinued. Currently Dis-Chem is having a clearance sale of all discontinued stock so if you do not own this polish yet go see if they still have stock.

Thirdly is Essence Colour & Go 124 Wanna Say Hello

124 Wanna Say Hello

124 Wanna Say Hello

I do not like this polish and I am unsure that I will ever wear it again. I do not like brown as a colour in general. This polish does however resemble chocolate and I guess that makes it better hehe. This swatch consists of 2 coats.

Fourth is Essence Colour & Go 120 Cookie Love

120 Cookie Love

120 Cookie Love

This is a mix of gold & orange. As you can see from the picture it sparkles gloriously in the sunlight. This swatch consists of 2 coats.

This product has officially been discontinued. Currently Dis-Chem is having a clearance sale of all discontinued stock so if you do not own this polish yet go see if they still have stock.

And Lastly Essence Colour & Go 136 Love’s Recipe

136 Love's Recipe

136 Love’s Recipe

I was not happy when I swatched this polish. This swatch consists of 3 coats and it is still very transparent. I love the colour but the effort to have it all even is a little too much. If I have to do more than 2 coats I get annoyed and just take it off. I think this colour will be better over a white base.

This product has officially been discontinued. Currently Dis-Chem is having a clearance sale of all discontinued stock so if you do not own this polish yet go see if they still have stock.

Those are the Winter Hues for today.

All The Best
