Autumn Skittle Mani

Hiya Dolls!

When I received some of the OPI Infinite Shine Iconic polishes last week, I knew that a Skittle Mani was in order!  Sometimes, my favorite part of a collection are how the colors look all together.  I love to play around and find what ones compliment each other for a skittle mani.

On my pointer finger I am wearing OPI Infinite Shine You Don't Know Jacques!  I needed a little bling, so I used OPI Bring on the Bling for my middle finger.  My ring finger is OPI Infinite Shine Lincoln Park after Dark and my pinkie is OPI Infinite Shine Dulce de Leche.

In case you are curious, I am wearing OPI Dulce de Leche on my thumb.

Have a great day lovelies!

OPI Infinite Shine Iconic Shades for Fall 2016


Hey Dolls!

OPI Infinite Shine has added a new Ambassador, Pyper America Smith and 30 Iconic Shades to their line.  The Infinite Shine line is a 3 step system (base, color and top coat) that doesn't require a light and offers up to 10 days of chip resistant wear and high shine.

Funny Bunny is a sheer white with a gorgeous jelly finish.  I used three coats for my swatch and the formula is super easy to work with.  I already have this one in my collection and the formula is the same.

Bubble Bath is a sheer pink with a jelly finish.  I love polishes like this, they just make your nails look so healthy and 'polished'.  This was another one that I already had in my collection, so I'm happy to get it in the Infinite Shine formula.  I used three coats for my swatch.

The rest of the polishes below are all new to me, so I'm so excited to have them in my collection!

Strawberry Margarita is a beautiful bright pink.  I love a good pink!  The formula is amazing, two easy coats!

Cajun Shrimp is a stunning coral cream.  This one is my fave of the ten polishes I received.  The formula was great, especially for a coral (I always get streaks with corals).  I used two easy peasy coats for perfect coverage.

Big Apple Red is basically THE perfect red polish!  A great staple to have in your collection.  The formula is fantastic, two easy coats.

Malaga Wine is a deep red wine shade.  I love vampy polishes like this, especially for Fall/Winter.  Two easy coats gave perfect opacity.

I'm Not Really a Waitress is a stunning deep red/burgundy with the most amazing shimmer throughout.  Perfect formula, two easy coats.

Dulce de Leche is a caramel nude cream.  In the bottle, there is a slight white shimmer, but it doesn't translate to the nail.  The formula is perfect, two coats.

You Don't Know Jacques! is a gorgeous, rich mauve with grey undertones.  I have been wanting this polish for such a long time!  The formula is fantastic, two coats is all you'll need.

Lincoln Park After Dark is the deepest purple cream.  This definitely looks black on the nails, but in certain lighting, you can see a hint of purple.  The formula is super easy to work with, two coats for my swatch.

The Infinite Shine Iconic collection is available in select stores and salons as of September 1, 2016.

New Sally Hansen Color Therapy Collection 2016


Hiya Dolls!

I have twelve new Sally Hansen Color Therapy polishes to show you today!  The Color Therapy line has 33 new shades in a new formula.  The formula has a blend of natural oils (argan, acai and evening primrose) to add moisture to dry, weak nails.  These polishes are designed to wear without a base coat so that the oils contact the bare nail.  There is a top coat that delivers a high shine and also a cuticle oil that smells sooo amazing and nourishes your dry cuticles.  The formula boasts up to 10 days of wear.

Chai on Life is the dreamiest nude cream.  The formula is absolutely perfect, I used two easy coats for perfect opacity.

Rosy Quartz is the sheerest light pink.  It's one of those 'barely there' polishes that give your nails a beautiful shine with a hint of pink.

Steely Serene is taupe grey with a hint of mauve.  The formula was a little watery so I needed three coats, but it's still very easy to work with.

Therapewter is a pewter grey base with gold and silver shimmer flecks.  I needed three coats to get full opacity.

Powder Room is a warm, rosy-silver metallic.  The formula is perfect, no dragging or streaking at all which can often happen with metallics. Two easy coats.

Blushed Petal is a sheer peachy mauve with a jelly finish.  I used three coats to build up a little bit of opacity.

 Couples Massage is a sheer, peachy pink with a faint silver shimmer running throughout.  The formula was a bit runny, I used three coats for my swatch.

Pampered in Pink is a juicy, watermelon pink.  The formula is amazing, it is extremely saturated.  I still used two coats to get the full brightness of color.

Ohm My Magenta is a rich, red plum shade.  This one turned out to be my fave of the twelve polishes!  The color is super saturated, I used two easy coats.

 Haute Springs is a deep burnt red cream.  This one is super saturated, I thought it was a one coater, but to get the full depth of color, you'll want to do two coats.  I left my pointer finger with just one coat and you can see it's a fair bit lighter than the rest.

Indiglow is a stunning purple with an electric blue flash.  It;s smooth and buttery, two coats is all you'll need.

Soothing Sapphire is a navy blue with blue shimmer.  Again, a super easy to work with formula, two coats.

Cool Cucumber is a deep green cream.  I thought this was a funny name for a deep green polish at first.  When I think of cucumbers, I think of a soft spa green, but this is totally the color of the skin of the cucumbers that are growing in my garden!  The color is very saturated, be careful around your cuticles!

Sticks and Stones is a purple base with the most gorgeous shimmer that flashes from dark purple to pink to gold.  You can easily get away with one coat for this one (I used two for my picture but it is super pigmented).

The Sally Hansen Color Therapy line is available in Canada now at select retailers.  The suggested retail price is $11.95.

What do you lovelies think of this new line?

Have a great day!
