Beauty Favorite – Flower Beauty NOTD

 

Hey guys! Ready for a Flower Nail Lacquer? I sure am.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Seriously, I know that I haven’t done a nail post in awhile and I’ve no idea why! At least now’m starting to catch up on them. Do you remember¬†the¬†post¬†I shared on my¬†Tester Wednesday a while ago? I explained how I stocked up with Flower Beauty products before they took them out¬†the shelves at¬†all¬†Walmart Canada. Well, let’s just say not only did I stocked up their lipsticks, I grabbed quite a bit of their left-over clearance inventories.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I shared photos of some nail color swatches on my Instagram if you care to check it out. I wore this shade before and I’m ready today to give my two cents opinion. I’m just going to jump right in with the review.

The packaging is really cute. Right from the bottle shape¬†to the white cap. Can you tell that I like this shade a lot. It’s so pretty and girly!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got the shade Aster Place which is a nice¬†rose mauve tone. Which is a very pretty shade to wear for the coming Lunar New Year celebration?¬†Tradition is to wear red on that day but I’ve already planned to wear this aster place with my other red outfit.

Just two coats and without top coat

Love the colors and the smell of this polish. It simply has a nice coverage for a drugstore brand.

I’m usually too lazy to do the top coat and to my surprise it dries pretty fast. Application was smooth and easy. I would say it dries up about 8-10 minutes without top coat. The best part is that I got the full opacity in just 2 coats. This is so cool! I love how opaque the formula is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a good drugstore version polish I’ve wore! Essie is usually my favorite and still is but this one only takes 2 coats. It’s opaque shiny and after 4 days there is only a minimal wear. Which is not bad in my opinion. You see,¬†I don’t like wearing gloves when doing dishes. I like the feel of washing dishes, I don’t know how to explain this. But maybe it’s just me! I’m quite impressed that it long lasting.

Overall, I’m more impressed than I expected to be with this!¬†I recommend to those who want pretty colors that are affordable and they’re cruelty free!! Now, run to Walmart, girls. This is seriously nice.

Let me know what you think. Will it be a yes or a pass if you see this at your local Walmart?

So ya, thanks for stopping by to read and I hope to see you again on the next one. Bye!

New Bonne Bell Nail Lacquer – Review & Swatch

 

 

I spotted not only one but two of these pretty color nail lacquers two¬†weeks ago.¬†I have some¬†pictures and swatches for you. So, don’t go anywhere and continue strolling down.

Here is a closer look at them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a¬†new collection line from Bonne Bell and I’m super excited to share my thoughts and opinion on this post.

I picked up Honolulu and Key West nail lacquers from the Dollar store. They have a few variety of combinations but since I heard about their new nail polish I grabbed this one to try. Both are for $3.00 and they come with a cheap makeup purse. I threw the purse and keep the nail products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m so thrilled to see that these comes in a full-sized bottles. Happy to say that I’m quite impressed with the formula and the cute packaging.¬†I remember buying my first Bonne Bell’s eyeliner from a drugstore many years back¬†and I really like it. So, every time I see this brand in¬†a drugstore, I’d make a point to definitely check out their products.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This polish was a bit sheer, but not terribly so. I needed two-three coats for what you see above.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is two coats of the nail lacquers.¬†I was actually surprised at how pretty¬†and I like how opaque it was. It’s not glowy, shimmery or glittery.¬†This polish was very easy to apply and it also dried VERY quickly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a look at the brush. I find the brush ¬†to be very nice. It’s cut very cleanly at the edge and the brush shape is flat, thin and wide. Helps apply the product easily.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

That purple¬†is gorgeous. I really like the purple better than the red (Honolulu finishing). Don’t get me wrong, I like the red but the purple has a great shine that I really like. And the color of¬†Key West is just¬†so pretty.

Last thing need to mention is, I have a feeling you‚Äôll be seeing more and more of this polish show up on my blog ūüôā

What have you picked up lately? Comment below.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read.

Bourjois 5x Colorpop Nail Kit

 

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got this from Winners¬†two weekends ago while shopping for Mother’s Day gift. Yes, this post is a little late and hope you don’t mind. Just to let you know that May is usually a busy month for me.

I wasn’t really looking for any nail polish but I was very much drawn to pick this Bourjois 5x Color Pop¬†nail kit for its¬†cute and adorable packaging.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Inside you find five mini bottles of color pop nail polishes.¬†The nail polishes came in an adorable little blue¬†cardboard box, with 5 great shades which are sure to cover any mood you’re in or any occasion you’re going to.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are 3x ‘vacances’ polishes (bright, summery colors which fit their name as they would be great to bring on holidays) and 2x ‘soir√©e’ polishes (a dark one and a light one for evening time, great for a more subtle look).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  • Ideal for all occasions.
  • Beautiful colors.
  • Good¬†value for money.
  • Ideal for keeping in your handbag or taking on your travels.
  • Long lasting with a high shine finishing.
  • From the designer house of Bourjois

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are all the 5 shades. Five mini Bourjois Nail Elements in 3ml bottles

  • 61 – Light Pink – sheer/opaque¬†
  • 63 – Burgundy Red – opaque¬†
  • 67 – Coral Orange –¬†is¬†very sheer
  • 70 – Fuchsia Pink – opaque¬†
  • 72 – Minty Green – is very sheer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

61 – Light Pink

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

70 – Fuchsia Pink

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

67 – Coral Orange

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another good thing about them is the applicator – which is a big thing for me as I need a good brush, and I’ve found it in these. The brush is quite small, and I enjoy that, as I can get a precise finish when I‚Äôm applying nail polish.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I’m wearing 63 – Burgundy Red

I notice that the formula is long lasting and it‚Äôs very good for drugstore brand in¬†my opinion, lasting up to 5 days.¬†Truthfully, I’m not sure if these are part of the permanent line, or if you can get them from a regular Bourjois booth in the pharmacy or at Winners (Canadian retailers) stores.

They’re¬†minis and it‚Äôs a good way to try them out before buying a full sized polish in the wrong color.¬†I thoroughly enjoy these Bourjois polishes.¬†I would buy again without a doubt. I’m happy that I got to try them.
So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks post. Let me know if¬†you have these or if you have been able to find them in the¬†stores in your areas.

Thanks for reading this post guys. I’ll see you again very soon. :) Bye guys!

Tips On How To Pick The Right Lip Color

I have been doing some reading and research over the months since I started blogging and here is what I learned and experienced. Usually the first thing that runs through most of our minds when we think about how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick is that it should match our skin color. If you’ve been thinking that all of these years I’m here to tell you unless you’ve got a cold and your lips actually match your skin, you’re wrong. It can be hard at first but with a few tips I’ll show you how to pick the right shade of nude lipstick for every shade of skin.

The 1st Rule of thumb is as follows. Keep on reading :-

  1. MATCH YOUR LIP COLOR, NOT YOUR SKIN

It’s important to pick the shade that match your lip and not your skin.

2. HOW TO DETERMINE WHAT UNDERTONE YOU HAVE

Check under your wrist and if you have a green color veins, you’ve warm undertone and blue veins means you have cool undertone.

by source

3.  Choosing Your Lip Color With The Right Undertones. Here are some points you might want to know when choosing your lip color :

Fair Skin with Pink (Cool) Undertones: Your cool undertones mean you’ll want to pick a lipstick with hints of blue, and steer clear of anything orangey

Fair Skin with Yellow (Warm) Undertones: Choose something with a tinge of orange, which will complement your skin tone and make your eyes pop. As a general rule, you’ll want to stay away from pinks ‚ÄĒ they‚Äôll wash you out.

Medium Skin and Tan Skin: Lucky you! Your complexion goes with almost everything! Not only can you indulge in so-called “true reds” ‚ÄĒ which are the perfect combination of pink and orange ‚ÄĒ but your choices also run the gamut from pink, orange, cranberry and even deep oxblood or brown tones.

Olive Skin: Olive complexions can be surprisingly finicky. Your complexion has yellow undertones, but lipsticks with too much of an orange base can look off. Pick reds with a slight hint of blue in them, like a berry hue; and if you feel the combination isn’t working for you, go for a sheer or glossy version.

Dark Skin: Both blue-based reds and orangey reds look excellent with your complexion. You’ll enjoy brighter reds, a range of coral tones, true reds and deeply saturated berry tones.

Thanks for taking the time to read and hope to see you on the next one!¬†If you have any questions or would like me to do a more in-depth post on any of these products, please¬† let me know ‚Äď you can leave a comment below, on my Facebook page or email me.

ESSIE Favorites Mani For The Holiday!

 

Two Saturday ago, I was at Pharmaprix (Shoppers Drug Mart) since for Black Friday event the stores were having the promotion where you can dispense your reward points for the weekend. Strange enough, I spent the points on nails instead.

The sales promotion on the beauty products weren’t ¬†so exciting but essie‚Äôs fall¬†collection really impresses me. Ok, let’s be serious … don’t you think that all of their collections are worth it for a peek!

essie nail polish

YASSS, the most anticipated holiday season is finally here, which means red, white, black, silver nails will be popping up everywhere!

Let’s take a look at how they measure up!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The stand out shade for me has to be these two colors. It‚Äôs a gorgeous berry and ash grey¬†shade that seems to work one everyone that wears it, no matter what the skin tone. These may not be¬†Essie‘s¬†latest winter collection but they¬†just scream “Holiday” to me.

There are many¬†new shades to choose from their Winter Collection.¬†If you’re intrigued, here is the link.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I didn’t have the names of these nail polishes unfortunately since my son peeled off the sticker while I wasn’t looking. Well, he likes peeling off stickers.¬†Very easy to apply brush applicator. It picks up good amount of product and the texture is not too liquidy or thick. So, it goes on smoothly and without much effort. Long lasting and I enjoy these so much if you asked me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I got this beautiful maroon color polish which is a dark brownish red with pearly finish. It went on nicely, only needed 2 coats and its long lasting. The formula is opaque on first coat. I had this on for a week and the color is still looking good.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I looooove how it pops on the skin. Two coats and I was good to go, plus it dries pearly opaque¬†if you like that look. I’m very into this colour!

I think this color will suit most skin tone. It is absolutely amazing! You cannot go wrong with Essie quality product like this one. Plus I got it for a great price, win win!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is an absolutely stunning colour- the best way I can think to describe it is like grayish brown with a gorgeous understated shimmer. Love, Love, Love it! Destined to become a fave!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The colour however is gorgeous. Not too heavy on the cool or warm side, just a nice grey with brown undertone. Very suitable for the professional office environment. Definitely a two-coater for maximum coverage.

My final thoughts? I love¬†BOTH shades¬†and I’ve been wearing them interchangeably. So Yay for that!

Still, they applied well with two coats and didn’t give me any trouble at all, so if there’s a shade you must have, go for it… we’re all ready for a little pop of colour! I’m very impressed with the¬†amazing¬†quality¬†and,¬†I believe many of you would agree with the QUALITY. Am I right!

Find your favorite color at¬†Essie collection¬†and also¬†be found on Essie counters in Walmart, Drugstores and at¬†Essie’s website.

What do you think of these shades? Let me know on the comment section below.

Now hop over to other BABES IN BLOGLAND to check out their post of Blogmas Day 12

Schnapps Out Of It! OPI Nail Polish

 

OPI Nail POlish

Today, I’m going to do one more Dollar store review on the OPI Nail Polish I picked up recently. I’ve put a link here if you missed the¬†previous post¬†(full review).

I’ll be starting my holiday wish¬†list soon and to¬†warm up the holiday¬†spirit,¬†I’m jumping into a intermediary nail polish color first. A shade which is not to bright or bold red yet ūüėČ

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had a drugstore brand OPI Nail Polish that I was in LOVE with. I bought this by eye for the color and it was perfect! The shade to review is this beautiful.  Schnapps Out Of It by OPI! 

For $3.00 at Dollar Store instead of $9.00 at a drugstore, I’m definitely loving the shade and the price lol! An epic deal, if you asked me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a brown/peachy/rosy color that’s almost a creme finish, with just a tiny bit of pearliness to it. To me, it looks like a pretty Terracotta shade which I really like. Net wt: 0.5 fl oz in a staple glass OPI bottle. I feel¬†that it¬†applies easily and has good opacity. It¬†goes¬†completely opaque when it’s¬†in 1-2 coats¬†and it¬†dried easily and is not streaky.¬†The formula applies evenly and wears well which is a big plus if you are rough on your hands. It lasts about 4-5¬†days on me (since I’m very hard on my nails) so¬†I was well pleased.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s a great color, but some might find it too mature or not the classic red for the Holiday but I want to try a warm up¬†color for the season and “Just because …”. Glad to report in this¬†review that I’ve been wearing OPI nail polish the past few times and everytime I wear¬†it, I’m always reminded of how much I like this polish. ūüôā

opi nail polish nagelock

Up closed picture of the tip applicator. It picked up the formula nicely and I’m going to mention it again, easy to blend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One coat of the nail polish and you can immediately see how opaque it was without top coat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The color is very neutral and can be worn at the office and anywhere without screaming ” I’m wearing nail polish!!”… It’s a good option if one is tired of wearing red or nude.¬†It literally goes with everything! I fully recommend this product. As for me,¬†I’ll totally repurchase this OPI nail polish again!

Which color nail polish are you rocking this Holiday? I love to hear your comments below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Stay Beautiful!

Ciat√© Nail Polish – Sephora Bag!

ciate nail polish

I got this two items a few months ago all the way from Asia when my daughter went for vacation and ¬†she got me these from ¬†Sephora.¬†Inside¬†this Sephora bag is¬†the¬†Ciat√©¬†London Mini Paint Pot Nail Polish¬†and Feathered Manicure. I’m excited an anxious to share what’s in the bag. Continue reading if you like to see more …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Why only do I posted this lovely Ciat√©¬†Nail Polish today. Well, honestly the shades are pretty much the fall colors and I just wanted to wait until it’s nearly fall to wear and¬†share my views.

Let’s start with¬†the nail polish in this cute packaging.

ciate

Everyone has their benchmark for ‘good nail polish’. Mine has become Ciat√©¬†recently.¬†Love the Ciat√©¬†brand polishes, gorgeous opaque color, even wear and no chip for a week.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Also available at JC Penny, Sephora, Nordstrom and Amazon online. Each selling for CAD$10.00 at Sephora or purchase 3 for $18.00 with 30 shades to choose from.

In this package you get Tickle Me Crazy (Green), Knee Highs (Blue), Can Can (Burgundy), For The Frill Of It (Golden Bronze) and Sass Pot (Dark Purple).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The consistency of these polishes is very nice. They are highly pigmented with two coats are more than enough, without any streaking at all and no bubbling (even when applied thickly). Some might find the consistency a bit on the thick side but with the coverage and pigmentation I get, I have no complaints at all.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The application was fantastic, it gliding on so beautifully and was quite opaque for one coat! It dried very quickly also, so I didn’t have any smudges on my nails.¬†The packaging of the bottle is immaculate! The handle of the nail varnish is a great size, which is nice for a steady application.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They also last really long. It can easily go 5-7 days with barely any chipping, even when applied just to my bare nails (no base coat or top coat).

CIATE NAIL POLISH

Drugstore Madness Wednesday|Sally Hansen X-treme Wear

 

Sally hansen nail polish

Happy Wednesday Gorgeous! Another awesome find from the drugstore this week and I’m super excited to share this. Yes, you guess it right! It’s the Sally Hansen Nail Polish. Can you guess how much I paid for this bottle? Make a wild guess in the comment below and I’ll reveal the answer at the end of this post ūüôā

xtreme nail polish

I picked this shade called Gunmetal since its calling to¬†me. I got to get¬†it and confident that this is¬†the one for me. I have wore¬†gunmetal eyeshadow shade from my Naked Palette and no on my nails. So, this is a new discovery for me! Am I slowly swaying¬†to gunmetal colors! Who knows, right! I love trying new products to share it with all of you ‚̧

DSC05159

First time getting a dark shade of this tone and I’m loving it. This shade¬†look terribly bad or heroic¬†– reminds me of Lara Croft in Tomb Raider character.

by source
by source

I’m going to go kick some butt (just kidding!) or I’m bad and sexy kind of evening date (oh yay!). I honestly think this is a fun color to wear even for summer.

DSC05156

So, look for the shade 310 in Gunmetal if you like to step out of your comfort zone this summer for something real different. I’m going all the way out to show my pretty nail polish.

1 coat gunmetal

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear has very nice consistency in formula and it’s easy to apply. I love to try on 1 coat first and then add the second for better coverage. It’s gives a gorgeous metallic finish and on this look, I didn’t put on the top coat yet. I know, look amazing right!

2 coats

Since I wore it a week ago, the color stays put and not even a chip. So, I’m super happy with this great deal for only $0.99 on clearance. I don’t know how many of you guess it right the price¬†I paid for it. I definitely think it’s a mega steal.

Well, that’s all I have¬†for this week’s Drugstore Madness Wednesday and until next time, stay frugal-ti-ful!

What do you think of this week’s deal? Tell me your comment of¬†what you think in the section below. Is it a bargain¬†or no gain? I ‚̧ to hear your comments.

Thank you as usual for taking the time to read.

Nail Polish by Joe Fresh

nail polish by joe fresh

I mentioned in my makeup haul last week that I’ll be doing reviews on some of the products that I hauled and to try them to do the reviews. So, I picked this¬†nail polish since I’m excited to try it out. You can check my previous makeup haul at the link here.

DSC03297

Here is the¬†nail polish by Joe Fresh and it’s in the shade Maple or in french erable. I really like the short bottle packaging of this nail polish.

joe fresh - sharon beauty prime

The brush applicator is just too cute and it’s easy to apply on fingers. The formula is not too thick and for me the consistency is just nice.

I tried wearing it on first coat and I notice that the texture is not very opaque. I personally go for two coats and you can layer another coat if you like.

The picture shown is with two coats and it looks much better. It dries up quickly and it has a shinny finish. I have been wearing this Maple for 5 days now and they’re still looking decent except around the edges but no chipping whatsoever. So, I’m happy with that:)

It’s available online at Joe Fresh and at Canadian Superstores, Loblaws and Joe Fresh New York City store outlets with many more color selections.

What do you think of this nail polish?

Thank you for stopping by.

Friday Beauty Haul: Dollar Store Haul

I remember when¬†I first started my beauty blog, I used to do my beauty haul on Friday and if you have been following my posts you know what I’m talking about. But for those of you who are new here, feel free to read my previous Friday Beauty Hauls. But anyways, long story short,¬†I decided to do¬†a Friday Beauty Haul every once a month. I’ll share with you what I pick¬†from the drugstores, Walmart and Dollar Stores etc…¬†If you have any drugstore makeup products that you like me to¬†do a review on, just leave comment below.

So, for this week I’ll start with my¬†Dollar Store Beauty Haul. I got these last week but I just couldn’t find the time to do it until last night. Ya, I’m obsessed with makeup and I just pick and pick more of the makeup products and they’re piling up as high as an anthill.

Anyways, long story short. Today’ I’m going to do a haul and a¬†first impression at the same time. So, let’s get rolling:-

Oh, yes remember that all the items are all under $3.00 mark.

dollar store haul

I got a Top Coat by Revlon for $2, Eos lip balm for $3 and a gift set bag for $3 and inside this bag, we have Eye Define Pencil, Lip d’ovotion and an Eyeshadow Box all from Bonne Bell.

It’s like $1 each per item not counting the labor for the bag and that’s a great deal. Yipee!!! I love great sale and deals. Every dollar I save adds up and I got to spend on another item the next time¬†round. That’s saving too according to my own interpretation¬†(giggling).

Believe it or not, you can find some good products¬†especially drugstore items¬†at Dollar store or Dollar tree store nowadays. It’s convenient and cheap. You pay less at Dollar store than at a drugstore with similar¬†products. Don’t get me wrong, I still love¬†shopping at the drugstore but it makes more sense to shop at Dollar Store¬†especially if I’m¬†on a budget spend.

bonne belle kit

I’m excited to open this Eyeshadow box by Bonne Bell¬†in Cafe Classics. I’m pretty sure that the items are¬†sold separately at the drugstore or Bonne Bell Cosmetics website but in this case it happened to be packed as a¬†gift set.

This is a pretty cafe shades that have shimmery and pearly finish. The texture is smooth and it has beautiful pigmentation. I did a color swatch on bare arm- meaning without primer on. The instruction on the website says that you can apply using dry or wet application.

neutral eye look

These shadows are easy to blend and I really like the appearance I get using all the shadows from this shadowbox. If you love shimmery eyeshadow then this could be another drugstore brand  to look for. The shadow pan is descent in size and it comes with 2 cute sponge brush. It comes in a plastic packaging which you can stash in your purse or jeans pocket.

So here is the finish look. I really enjoy playing with the colors and for this look I used dry application and without eye primer. The shadows stays on nicely and long wearing .

eye define pencil

Next in the bag is the Eye Define Liner Pencil in Espresso Brown. There are 5 shades for color options. I have Bonne Bell eyeliner in the past and have always love how smooth and easy it glide on like a skyglider. The formula is creamy and it doesn’t drag or skip. I like it ūüėÄ

lipvotion

Okay, this is a fun new¬†Lipd’ovotion by Bonne Bell.¬†This comes with a¬†twist-top applicator on one end and the brush the opposite end. I personally think that this packaging is genius.¬†I love the idea of having a lip brush with a lip color together. ¬†So easy to apply the lip gloss with much precision.

By the way, its available in 5¬†shimmery¬†shades that fit any outfits. This clear¬†shade ¬†lipd’ovotion smells like caramel. Yummy! The downside for me is the formula. I feel that is a little bit¬†sticky or tacky and¬†if you dislike¬†sticky lip gloss¬†then you’re not going to like this one either. I’ll have to pass on this one even though I really like the packaging. It’s just that this¬†sticky formula isn’t something I’ll reach for. So, I’ll not repurchase this again.

eos lip balm

Eos Lip balm¬†in Sweet Mint. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic. This is my favorite¬†scented lip balm. It smells so good and it’s so so smooth. My lips feels so smooth and moist and I can feel the minty sensation on my lips. It’s not gunky or sticky at all. It has 7 different minty scents to choose¬†and it’s available at Walmart and all drugstores.

I love the super adorable “kinder egg” packaging. The rounded top formula reminds me of the tropical hairy fruit in Asia¬†called “rambutan”. You can googled it up in case you’re curious to know. I will repurchase again and again. Totally love it.

revlon top coat

Revlon Colorstay Gel Shine Top ¬†Coat in 0.4 fl oz. On the bottle it says long wearing nail enamel. Well, I’ve been meaning to get a top coat a month ago and this couldn’t come in a better time. For $2 a bottle of top coat by Revlon, I’ll have to say I’m a happy camper. With summer approaching, all finger nails and toe nails are ready to be painted for flip flop or beach sandals.

So, I hope you enjoy this Dollar store beauty haul for this month and I’ll see you all again next month¬†on Friday Beauty Haul.

Which is the best deal of makeup products that you found recently at your dollar tree store? I love to hear your comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

$2 Nail Polish Drugstore Haul

 

 

 

nail polishes

Happy haul day friends, I hope you’re all having a lovely warm weekend with your family and friends ‚̧ I decided to write a beauty post on my latest drugstore haul which are all about nail polishes. These are some of the products I picked from Shoppers Drug Mart.

Yes, a $2 nail polish which I couldn’t resist and¬†you heard it right.¬†For¬†2 BUCKS ONLY! Continue reading …

DSC01936

Rimmel 60 seconds Nail Polish in Lose Your Lingerie in pastel pink is a pretty color to wear for spring. True to its claim of 60 seconds dry with one coat. I like the packaging with the postage stamp  of Rita Ora on this bottle. The brush is short and the formula is easy to apply. The net wt: 0.2 oz and available in 6 different fast drying shades.

DSC01937

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Taupe on Trend is a pretty color for everyday wear. I find that the texture is a little thin when I applied it on. It is uneven and need to apply a few times in order to get the perfect coverage. The finishing is quite opaque and if you love glossy nails then top coat will help. I have been wearing this for a week now on my toes and no chipping so far. Color Show arrives in 48 trend setting shades that pleases your nails.

DSC01938

Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish in Lemon Drop is a bright lemonade yellow color which I love to wear¬†for spring and summer. This is such a fun color to wear and easy to apply. To get the maximum amazing results, I put 2-3 coats for a opaque appearance ūüėõ The brush applicator is short but get to do its job well. Available in 18 brilliant shades.

DSC01939

Revlon Nail Enamel in Radiant. This glittery color reminds me of the Cinderella beauty collection from Mac. This nail polish is blue tinted clear base with blue glitters, large green and silver hexagon shaped. Due to that this Radiant has clear base, it make this nail polish more versatile since you can layered in any layer you want. If you love the glittery finish, this Radiant glam will be something you will like. The texture is thick but manageable.

Sonia Kashuk Nail Polish

Hey lovelies! You might have heard that Target Canada is leaving town or country and there are massive liquidation sale from 80% -90% on their last day in Canadian soil.¬†They have this¬†huge banner that says 80%-90% LIQUIDATION/SALE ¬†in front of the door. Yes, everything were gone except some furnitures. I was disappointed to say the least to see all the empty shelves but my dear husband found two bottles of Sonia Kashuk nail polish. I’m like this is splendid. They’re both the same color which I don’t mind at all. I’m just so happy to get them.

Sonia Kashuk in On The Hunt, net wt: 0.5 fl oz for $4.79 selling on a 90% discount. Hurray!!! That’s the best price I’ve ever paid for a nail polish actually. The shade is of forest green and it has a matte finish. I got to admit that I have the thing with green.

The formula is just nice. Not too thick or liquid-y in consistency. It has a long tip and makes painting your nails super easy.

When I tested it this morning,¬†I didn’t have any problem applying this nail polish on fingers and it dries up quick. It gives an opaque but shinny finish. I’m happy with my purchase and if you¬†happened to be shopping at the US Target, make sure to check out more of the available shades, Sorry, I cannot provide you with more detailed color availability since these two are all that’s left. For less than a buck at Target liquidation sale? It’s really a no-brainer.

Which is your favorite nail polish color for spring? I love to read your comments.

Thank you for stopping by.
