BB Couture – Adam

This is one of the most interesting polishes I own.

It looks like a dark taupe army green, but it has red shimmer inside!!

Check this out, I’ve never seen a polish like this!

How cool is that? 🙂

My new job has been awesome… Since I started, I have been working on this software, and they are flying me out to Maryland/DC next week to demo it!

Color Club – Revealed

I baked a chocolate cake today with almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil, truvia… tried to make it a guiltless one. I hope it doesn’t taste like crap? ha!

Here is Color Club – Revealed! I had such high hopes for it, a pretty peach with a pink shimmer… but unfortunately it was just too matchy matchy with my skin tone so it looks horrible on me.

If you can pull this one off, I envy you, because the polish itself is pretty!

Don’t forget about the Essence @holographics giveaway that ends in a week if you’re in the US!

Inglot – 343, 346, 635, & 636

Were you wondering what I bought at Inglot? I got 5 polishes, this awesome shimmery eye shadow that is pink and brown, and 3 round pans for my 10 round pallet.

Let’s get to the 4 dark polishes I got! (The other was a light pink matte that I’ll swatch later, it wasn’t that exciting.)

These are SO amazing. 343 and 346 are really… dazzling! 343 is a wine color and 346 is my perfect favorite brown color that isn’t so dark that it could be mistaken for black and isn’t bronzey!

635 and 636 are their new “breathable” line of polishes. They are a creme base with a hidden shimmer. 635 is taupe with purple shimmer and 636 is a purple magenta with raspberry pink shimmer.

I took another shot that focused more on 635 and 636 so you can hopefully see the hidden shimmer come out a little more. It isn’t as apparent as it is in the bottle (the bottle I’m holding is 635 by the way!!) but you can still see it!

What do you think!? 635 can sound like a Paradoxal dupe but it really isn’t… it is much more strictly taupe, the only thing that is purple is the shimmer inside!

I love them all and can’t give any of them up! 🙂

Zoya – Marcella (and a blog award!)

This color is really pretty and unique… it is like a burnt rose color with hot pink hidden shimmer! I had ordered the color spoon before buying this from Zoya, and it leaves me wishing the shimmer stood out more.

You can’t really see the shimmer, although the color is still unlike others that I have.

Look at the bottle though, I wish so badly that the shimmer would show on the nail like this:

Also, I am so excited to say that Moondancer Jen from http://moondancerjen.blogspot.com gave me this Liebster blog award! You guys are such a nice and generous community that I’m so glad to be part of!

Borghese – Mochaccino

Okay, after this one, I want to do pastels and Easter colors all week!

I just have to get this last one in, just in case you go nail polish shopping and see these Borghese Rapido on a shelf. I didn’t want you to miss out on Mochaccino or overlook it if you like the hidden shimmer taupes, because this one is so pretty!

On the nail it will appear a little darker, and the shimmer isn’t as apparent as Chanel’s Paradoxal…

But look what lies inside! How pretty is this!?

After I wore it like that, I decided to add some pink shimmer, so I layered Orly – Fifty Four over it. Its really sheer so it just added a tiny bit of pink sparkle. I felt more Springy I guess!

It really is a nice taupe creme in the shade or from far away. I kept thinking that it was almost a mauve-ish purple gray taupe cream when I’d look at it in the shade, if that makes sense? Probably not, you’d have to see it for yourself!

It isn’t a Paradoxal dupe, although some people might refer to it that way since it has the similar taupe and purplish tone with hidden purplish shimmer. I find the shimmer to more of a mauve-ish purple shimmer though, compared to Paradoxal.

If you like it, go get it before the new Borghese Rapido displays get raided! 🙂
