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.

Deborah Lippmann Sookie Sookie True Blood Set Swatches, Photos & Review

Deborah Lippmann Sookie Sookie True Blood Set

The Deborah Lippmann True Blood Sookie Sookie Set features two new limited edition nail lacquers, inspired by HBO’s True Blood series.

This time instead of deep blood reds we get subtler colors. Sweeter. You know, just like Sookie herself. ;)

I’ll be honest. I was HOOKED on True Blood the first three seasons. Then after season 4  I got really bored with them adding so many fantasy creatures. Then I canceled HBO. But now I have it again so I might see if season 5 is worth watching.

Germany features twelve new shades, all either cremes or shimmers. Quite a few of these turned out to be must-haves for me, which I didn’t really expect. If you love glowing, lit-from-within shimmery metallics, I think you will want some of these…

Becca Balearic Love Collection for Summer 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review

New this summer from Becca comes the Balearic Love Collection. Balearic Love features deep and earthy shades such as sand, plum and bronze. Included in the collection is a limited edition palette, a new Eye Tint shade, new shade of their Line and Define Pencil, a Mineral Blush, a new Sheer Tint Lip Colour and three new Nail Colours.

Becca is a brand I am only a tiny bit familiar with. Many, many years ago I bought an amazing shimmery taupe eyeshadow from them and used it up COMPLETELY. This is rare! I absolutely adored it, but alas, I cannot remember the name anymore. But the texture of it was so amazingly soft and it was super rich. The best shimmery taupe eyeshadow I ever owned. Sigh.

Let’s do this!

Misa Precious Moments Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

Misa Precious Moments is new for spring and features six new creme finish polishes.

Misa does cremes very, very well, and though these may look boring, they are very soft and pretty colors. Maybe not all totally unique, but their formula (for the most part) is really excellent. Most were two coats, and I LOVE their bottle shape. I know, it’s a small thing, but I really do love the way they look lined up. They never tip over, sit right next to each other, and have a nice heft to them. ;)
