Revlon Bubble Gum

Revlon Bubble Gum is from the 2010 Scents of Summer Collection, an old one but a good classic colour. The formula is nice and opaque in two coats and lasts quite well with a good base and top coat. The dry time is average, and even with a top coat it's scent is strong. It mellows down after a couple of days. The only thing is people think I am strange smelling my fingers all the time when I wear scented nail polish... lol :)

Revlon Pink Lingerie

I'm loving how shiny this beauty dries. Goes super smooth. I thought this would be a nightmare to apply and dry but the formula is decent for a pastel colour. It takes 3 coats and dries fairly quickly. Super cute and girly :) I love colours like this as they go with most outfits <3

OPI DS Sapphire

There is something about the old OPI Designer Series that makes me all happy inside :D must be that holographic rainbow goodness. My skin goes all kinds of crazy colours against different nail polishes in pictures, I apologize. This is 3 coats of OPI DS Sapphire <3 quite a sheer polish, so I'm thinking I need to try it layered. Never enough holos :3

OPI Purple with a Purpose + OPI Can't you Sea?

I wanted to see if I could make any use of OPI Can't you Sea? - a super sheer, watery polish with tiny microflakes that reflect blue, green and gold tones. On it's own it looks terrible! I added two coats of Can't You Sea? over two coats of OPI Purple with a Purpose. It does look much better on top of another colour but it is still too sheer and underwhelming to impress me. Purple with a Purpose has great formula. I wouldn't call it muted or dusty, but isn't the brightest of purples. There is also a tiny amount of magenta shimmer in there, but sorry OPI after using Zoya Mimi this doesn't come close to being a fave purple :)
