Pacifica – Red Red Wine

This is my first time trying out a polish from Pacifica, although I have tried out a variety of their products over the past year after receiving a few in different beauty box subscriptions. This deep red creme polish from Pacifica, called Red Red Wine, showed up in my Septemeber Ipsy bag, and I set it aside for a bit (my untrieds pile is kind of big). Yesterday, I was looking for a good polish to use as a base for some glitter topcoats, and pulled this out. After I painted it on I almost didn’t want to add the glitter! The colour is so beautiful I wanted to let it shine on it’s own!

Wet n’ Wild – ColorIcon Eyeshadow Collection – Petal Pusher

After seeing countless people raving about the Wet n’ Wild ColorIcon 8-shadow palettes, I was curious enough to try them out for myself when I saw them at the local drugstore for under $5! I grabbed the 3 colours they had, and this is the purple/pink palette called Petal Pusher. It comes with a double-ended brush/shadow sponge, however I won’t be using it except in a pinch.

Eat. Sleep. Polish. – 2×4

Eat. Sleep. Polish. recently released a new 6-piece collection inspired by the band Blind Melon. Being an ESP hoarder, I knew I had to have them all, but I was delighted to see a beautiful brown holo among the group. I had just been mentioning to a friend how I love rich brown colours and was hoping for a good holo polish to add to my collection. 2×4 really delivers, and I’m really happy to have added this to my growing ESP collection.

Eat. Sleep. Polish. – Let It Go

Having taught Kindergarten this past year, it wasn’t uncommon to hear my students spontaneous burst into song at any given point throughout the day. Hands down, their number one choice was Let It Go, from Disney’s Frozen. These kids knew every word and sang with emotion! So amazing. I’m also a big fan of Frozen, because Anna and Elsa are kickass role models for girls (and boys) everywhere… be yourself, kiddo. So, when I saw that Eat. Sleep. Polish. was releasing a polish inspired by the movie, I knew I had to have it. Once I saw the preview swatches I thought she had completely captured it. Cat says Let It Go, is inspired by the amazing Disney movie Frozen. This polish is such a pretty icy baby blue. It applies very thin, and you will need several coats depending on how opaque you want it. The polish is made with Spectraflair, micro-flakies & holographic sparkle. It must be seen in person to truly be appreciated.”

She’s right about seeing it in person. The sparkle really stands out on my fingers, and the almost iridescent flash of baby blue, along with the slight duochrome make this polish so unique and intersting… plus I swear my fingers feel a little colder wearing it.

Okay, not really, but it is gorgeous. I used 3 coats plus topcoat. It is pretty sheer and could be easily layered over another base for a new look. Versatile polish. Bonus!

In the bottle shot you can really see the microflakies and the subtle duochrome nature of the polish! In bright light, the holo really pops. In lowlight, the glitters still sparkles and shines!

There’s just so much going on with this polish, I’m really glad to have it in my hands! ESP also has snowflake nail vinyls you can use on this polish to make a truly Frozen mani… but I’m not willing to bust those out for quite a while! Find the polish, vinyls and more here.

Happy Monday!

Lilypad Lacquer – Apple Crisps

Okay, so I caved and bought myself Lilypad Lacquer’s Apple Crisps after I added it to Nail Polish Canada’s Great Polish Giveaway a few weeks ago. I kept seeing it and it’s just gorgeous… It reminds me of a juicy apple candy, but with holo. I used two coats of the polish here, and the formula was great.
