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.

Essie Summer 2015 review

As much as I’m known for my love of all things green, I have a lesser known obsession with sparkly white nail polish. It all started with China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr and it’s been going strong ever since. White feels so fresh and clean in summer, but add a little glimmer and I’m sold.

Urban Decay Gash Lipstick & Nail Polish

The first time I saw an Urban Decay display, live and in person, I was in a major lip gloss phase. I was instantly drawn to the discontinued Lip Gunk glosses and Gash was my first purchase. I wore the shhh out of it. It was my go-to because of the deep red color and lasting power.
