OPI – Ski Teal We Drop

Wednesday, 18 August, 2010

Teal. It’s been my thing lately. Well, teal nail polish at least. When I saw this I had to get it.

Formula was fabulous! 2 coats, totally opaque. Fast drying. What more can a girl want? It’s a lovely creme, to boot. Holla! (ok, I shouldn’t do things like that…LOL I’m too old to be trying to talk like that.) It’s part of the Fall 2010 Switzerland collection.

Sally Hansen – Fairy Teal

I had to give this a shot…I had done Yellow Kitty and that formula was pewp. It took more than 3 coats to get it remotely opaque so I was worried this would be the same.

It’s not.

It’s better in coverage, but still bad in dry time. You can find it on the shelves at Walgreens, CVS, etc. I can’t really say much, but you can check out the color below.

Rescue Beauty Lounge – Teal

I was weeding out swatches that I had posted and hadn’t posted…well, hello Teal. I forgot I had swatched you. Back in March. Talk about epic fail on my part.

Checked my notes on the formula – dried slower than some of the other RBLs I’ve had, but it also dried faster than some of the others, too. Nice, high gloss finish. 2 coats were used.

I love teal – one of my new favorite colors.

China Glaze – DV8 and GR8

Monday, 12 July, 2010

I swear I had posted my swatch of DV8, but I was wrong! I had even put it in my Uploaded pics folder. Very odd. I finally found GR8 and was able to swatch it.

I love the China Glaze Holographics. How can anyone not like them? 😀

See below!

Even without the flash, this color was throwing holographics everywhere. I didn’t know what to do. I finally decided to tame the beast with a single flash setting. It’s a gorgeous teal, isn’t it? It was a nice cool color against my skin tone.

Love how the sun really brought this into play. In the shade it was this deceptive little color was pretending to be a tame gold nail polish. Out in the sun, I swear it was one of my favorite gemstones (lemon quartz) gone wild! It’s a bit warmer in the undertones than I expected and it clashed terribly with my skin, but … how can you deny how gorgeous it looks?!

Barielle – Decadence

In continuing with my thing for teal and turquoise, I now present Barielle’s Decadence.

The shimmer in here makes the color pop and look almost electric against my skin. It’s kind of cool, isn’t it?

Bon weekend, mes amis!

Teal, glorious teal. How I love thee. Let me count my bottles.

Application was a breeze. Lovely. Quick drying. Perfectly opaque. A wonderful creme…oh, a creme. Come and check it out.
