Precision Oasis Collection Swatches and Review

Precision Oasis

The Précision Oasis collection features six subdued mellow shades, but don’t be fooled, there are some stunners in here!

It’s been quite awhile since I have reviewed any shades from Précision. Since 2009 in fact! They are a really great brand but not super easy to find. I’ve never seen them in person, but you can find them online. And the price is definitely right!

Précision has been in business for 30 years now. They have over 80 shades and are big 3-free and cruelty free.

Zoya PixieDust Swatches and Review

Zoya PixieDust

Zoya PixieDust is the latest collection from the brand for spring, and it’s not like anything we have seen from Zoya before – it’s textured!

Indeed, I think we are going to be seeing a whole ‘lotta textured polish in the near future, and I for one am on board!

PixieDust features six new shades in the pebbled, sand-like finish. It’s a rather fine texture, so no worries about your nails looking like they have large chunks of sand stuck to them! It’s finer and not as gritty as say the OPI Liquid Sand ones.

No base or top coat required, and you get a matte yet still sparkly finish. I used three coats on the first three shades, and then two coats on the last three (the darker shades).

Nicole by OPI Modern Family Collection Swatches & Review

Nicole by OPI Modern Family

Nicole by OPI and Twentieth Century Fox recently collaborated to make the Modern Family collection, based on the hit ABC TV show. A show I’ve been watching since it started in fact!

This collection features fourteen new shades that run the gamut from cremes to glitters, from beige to blurple. All of them are named after characters on the show as well.

For most of these I had to use three coats to get the desired saturation. A couple were two coaters though. Quite a few had some streaking issues, mentioned below.
