Howdy, everyone! Yes, I’m actually alive. Sadly, I’ve been neglecting the blog because school, work and life got in the way. However, I am happy to let you know that I am almost done with school and will be able to devote more time to my true passion: nail polish!! At this point I have so many pics and untried polishes waiting their turn, so I’ve got plenty of backlog to create posts from. Can’t wait to get back into the swing of things. 🙂
Hello, all! I hope you all are having a great week so far. I have been looking for a job for a couple weeks, with my recent contract position ending, and am also looking to move from an administrative role to a more technical one in the process. That makes a job search really interesting, let me tell ya. I had an interview for what would be my FIRST EVER technical job in an SAP support role and I think it actually went well. I am three classes away from my Bachelor’s in Computer Science, so it’s about time I put my “nerdy girl” pants on and got into the field I wanted to be in. Time will tell if this is the first step, but it’s on my mind and wanted to share. But I digress. What I really wanted to talk to you about is today’s polish…..
Today I am sharing OPI Scores A Goal! from the Spring/Summer 2014 Brazil Collection. Looks like I am a day (at least) late and a dollar short on riding the coattails of FIFA’s World Cup frenzy, huh? Wish me better luck in 2016 (and hope for anther coordinating polish set being released relating to the host country). Anyhow, back to the polish lol. This color is a very rich, brown-leaning purple polish. Maybe a purple leaning brown? Take your pick. I’ve seen this described as a purplish-red or grey, but there seems to be more brown in this color than red or grey to me. I suppose it could depend on the skin tone of the person wearing it?
Today’s polish is from butter LONDON and it’s called Branwen’s Feather. It’s a lovely deep purple/aubergine that has a subtle silver and bluish shimmer. For this manicure I used Seche Rebuild as a base, two coats of polish and one layer of Cult Nails Wicked Fast on top. It dries to a nice shine on its own, though, and does offer full coverage in two coats. Application and drying time were good, this definitely not a runny or thick, clumpy polish.
Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a nice day. If you’re not, take a look at this beautiful polish and smile as you bask in its holographic beauty! It’s Eternal Beauty! This polish is a part of Color Club‘s 2013 Halo Hues collection, one of my first forays into holographic polishes. I stumbled upon this set for quite a deal and had to grab the whole thing, of course. For more info on where I got this set, check my earlier post here.
This color is a bright purple with a linear holographic effect that just begs to be stared at. In some lights it looks almost blue. It’s just amazing and I am glad every time I see it that I bought it. The application of this polish was good and photos show two coats and a single later of topcoat (can’t remember which, sorry). Eventually I will get all the polishes from this collection swatched and posted to the blog. All the colors are just gorgeous and the holo effect of these polishes is amazing.
I hope you’re all having a great week! Thanks for stopping by.
