OPI Coca-Cola 2015 – Icons of Happiness

Even though I cut out pop (yes, I say pop because, Ohio) from my diet over 20 years ago, I’m a die-hard Coca-Cola fan. I used to annoy servers during high school and college by ordering Cherry Cokes, made with grenadine and a cherry, natch. And I still I treat myself to a one when we go to the movies. Our fave movie theater, an AMC with recliners and assigned seats, has a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that I love playing with to discover new flavor combinations. I’m currently into Vanilla Barq’s.

This year, the Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. The iconic bottle, given its distinctive curves by The Root Glass Company in Terra Haute, Indiana, is recognizable worldwide. To honor the green-tinted beauty, OPI has paired up once again to release two signature colors. The OPI Coca-Cola 2015 Icons of Happiness collection includes a re-release of some of last year’s shades along with the Two to Celebrate duo.

Chanel Fraicheur Swatches, Review and Comparisons

I totally squealed, to the point of scaring my furry co-worker (aka my kitty Ren), when I spotted a new minty green nail polish from CHANEL on Instagram. CHANEL Fraicheur kept popping up on some Russian and Asian accounts, but I couldn’t understand the captions, and had to know more. I proceeded to stalk Chanel.com until it was finally available for sale and then I pounced. I even paid for shipping, you guys, because I had to have it.

Now, I love, love, love my bottle of Chanel Jade. I mean, I hoard my precious, use it sparingly, keep it capped tight, and regret not having a back-up, so I hoped Fraicheur would quell that need. The million dollar question is, is it a Jade dupe?

Essie Neon 2015 Swatches & Review

Essie Neon 2015

Essie and China Glaze must be partying together, for they both used music culture as inspiration for summer collections. Whereas the China Glaze Electric Nights collection pays homage to EDM, the Essie Neon 2015 colors have a music festival theme. And like last year’s neons, these are bright but not truly fluorescent. They really should name them “brights.”

OPI Color Paints Swatches, Review & Nail Art

OPI Color Paints review

OPI dipped their toe in the water of sheer, buildable color when they released the Sheer Tints Top Coats last year. While those were a good idea for layering, nail art, etc., the top coat formulation had its limitations, namely bubbling. Fast forward a year and we have the OPI Color Paints, a collection of eight intensely pigmented jelly polishes, and one silver chrome base color, that have a wide range of uses.
