Depend – Numbers 045 and 206

Thursday, 26 May, 2011

Ok, I can’t stop giggling every time I write about this Swedish nail polish brand called Depend. I’m childish. I’m immature. I’m juvenile. What can I say? I totally ‘fess up to my faults. I’m also a disorganized organized mess. My Helmers are disorganized right now. I need a third Helmer and I can see Mr Carinae rolling his eyes at me…

Anyway, immaturity and disorganization aside, I really do need to stop laughing when I swatch these colors.

OPI – Black Shatter, Teenage Dream, Last Friday Night and Not Like the Movies

Monday, 24 January, 2011

I’m missing one of Katy Perry’s colors – The One That Got Away. I did buy it, I just totally forgot when I swatched. Ooops. My bad. I will do it by the end of the week.

This is one of the last collections I will show you from OPI. I’m not too keen on supporting indie companies that sell out. Good for OPI that they got $$, but bad for me because I won’t be purchasing new colors I see. Pity. Oh well. All the more money for other nail polish!

I think I will have to do a collection of OPI colors that were my favorites before they were purchased by Coty. This will be my eulogy, my obituary for them. Hm. I have to troll through my colors now! πŸ™‚ Yay.

In the meantime, here are the colors I offer you…Behind the jump, of course!

Nubar – Stronghold

Monday, 13 December, 2010

Stronghold is a strong grey creme that hints at a blue base. I love grey nail polish, but it doesn’t love me! πŸ™

This is part of Nubar’s Fortress Collection – a collection I loved, but could only truly wear 2 of the colors. The formula was great! Dried in record time and was opaque in 2 medium coats.


Nubar – Palisade

Monday, 29 November, 2010

Part of the Fortress Collection by Nubar, this shade of gray really wasn’t too flattering on me. πŸ™ I am bummed because I love grays so much and almost all of them are epic fails on me. πŸ™

This dried quickly and was opaque in 2 coats. Boo hoo that it didn’t look good on me, though.
