Chanel Peridot

I was all excited when UPS delivered my package. For some reason, last week went by a lot faster than I had realized…and suddently, here it was, Monday and there was a pretty little package waiting for me. From Chanel.

Look at the pretty label shots I did. That’s a HINT of the colors to come.

Revlon’s Sunshine Sparkle vs Chanel’s Mimosa

Wednesday, 8 June, 2011

Ah…the joys of owning nail polish. I can do fun comparisons. It never entered my head to keep up the comparisons when I started doing them last year, but as my collection grew I noticed there were some that really were so close to others that I had to put them side by side and let them duke it out!

I am featuring Revlon’s Sunshine Sparkle in this post because I’ve already written about Chanel’s Mimosa.

Revlon – Perplex

Thursday, 7 April, 2011

I am Perplexed that I was not able to find this color sooner.

I got a call from a BFF going, “What is that color you were looking for from Revlon? Is it called Perplex?”

Me: “OMG…YES! WHERE ARE YOU?”

BFF: “I’m at Big Lots. They have three left and…”

Me: “GET THEM ALL. DO YOU HEAR ME? GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! ALL OF THEM! I LOVE THAT COLOR. WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF I WILL LOVE THAT COLOR, BUT I WANT THEM ALL ANYWAY!”

BFF: “Ok. Stop yelling in my ear. They’re a dollar each.”

Me: *faints*

I got the package 2 days later. Yay for NAIL MAIL!! Thank you, Karen! Thank you, thank you!!!

Chanel’s Black Satin vs Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Iconoclast

Tuesday, 22 March, 2011

I had to do a comparison. Can you blame me?

When I put on Iconoclast, I had flashbacks of Black Satin nightmares. You know what I’m talking about – people selling bottles of this on eBay for exorbitant prices. Little did you know that waiting a few years down the line would yield a version of it with better shimmer and a better formula. Sometimes it pays to wait.

Come on over and see what I’m blabbing about today…The sun came out and is still out, so I’m going to make this brief because I want to get some swatching in before the rain starts in again!

Chanel Tulipe Noire

This shade of red is gorgeous. I love it. I dislike shimmers and anything that gets in the way of a gorgeous creme polish. However, this shade won me over.
