OPI Significant Other Color

OPI Significant Other Color Bottle

OPI Significant Other Color is a really pretty metallic duochrome that was missing from my collection until I recently saw it at Ulta.

It’s a pink lavender shade that has strong flashes of green/gold. While it’s on the more sheer and light side from what I normally like, I can’t help but love it because of the strong duochrome finish.

Beautifully Disney Nail Polish Swatches and Review

Beautifully Disney Nail Polish

Last week whilst at Disneyworld, I was wandering around a store in one of the parks (I think in Magic Kingdom) and came across a display of Beautifully Disney makeup. I had no idea they sold any makeup or nail polish there, so I was kind of pumped up!

They have eyeshadow palettes, lip glosses but most importantly eight Beautifully Disney nail polish shades. I looked at everything carefully but passed them up.

A couple days later we were back in another store (this time in Animal Kingdom) and I saw the display again. Once again I picked up the green and purple nail polishes that kind of called my name and decided to not pass them up. So glad I didn’t because they are both great.

Revlon Chroma Chameleon Swatches and Review

Revlon Chroma Chameleon

Revlon Chroma Chameleon is a new limited edition collection which features eight duo and multi-chrome metallic shades.

I had my eyes peeled for these for awhile and finally spotted these five at a Rite Aid near me. They should be at Walgreens/Rite Aid and CVS (and possibly Meijer and Harmon, which we don’t have in the Bay Area).

The three I didn’t get were Aquamarine, Gold and Cobalt.

The formula with these was decent, not perfect. Since they are metallic they tend to be a little brush-stroke-y. Most were just two coats but two I used three.

Chanel Azure and Bel-Argus Le Vernis Swatches and Review

Chanel Azure and Bel-Argus Le Vernis

Chanel Azuré and Bel-Argus Le Vernis are new limited edition shades in the summer 2013 L’Ete Papillon de Chanel collection. In fact there is also another shade called Lilus which is a coral creme.

I initially saw many swatches of these when they first came out and didn’t think they looked all that spectacular. However when I was at Nordstrom this past weekend and walked past them, I decided to stop and swatch for myself. I was fairly blown away by how gorgeous they were! It took me all of 1 minute to decide I needed them both in my collection!
