I know, this is the same video I linked in my last post, but I wanted to spread things out so I could spend a little more time discussing them here. I will say though, I do have a lot of polish to talk about, so hopefully this post doesn't get away from me...
So, without further ado, let's get started!
As in the video, I'm going to group things by brand, but I'm not going to go in the same order. You know, because that would be boring (...also because I don't remember the exact order. Which actually might mean I will go in the same order and just not know it).
I missed out on the other three polishes from this collection, but since they were more mauve-toned, I'm not sure they would have been very flattering on me. The other three, the one's I purchased, are all brown-toned. Again, not always the most flattering, but two out of the three ended up looking quite nice! This first one is Spencer, and is one of the polishes that looks pretty good on me.
Zoya describes this as a "gold holo flip liquid metal with bronze micro glitter" and IT'S JUST SO PRETTY. In the bottle it's a bright, strong gold with bigger pieces of gold sparkle and hints of blue and green along the edges. On the nail, it's like a bright, bold gold with chunks of sparkle and licks of blue and green, depending on how the light hits it. Zoya says you use it to layer since it's slightly sheer at one coat, but opaque at three, and I would have to agree with that! The other polishes in the Flair collection (the Focus collection is all cremes) are also quite pretty, especially Tris and Giada, but hands down, Aggie is my favorite!
We're on the home stretch! Time for Formula X polishes; I really love the Formula X, well, formula! but I don't ever really feel like they're worth the $12ish they retail for, so I always try to pick them up on sale. Which is surprisingly easy to do; every few months, the seasonal polishes go on sale online for $5-$6 and some polishes end up on sale at physical Sephora stores as well. However! The best way to get polish on sale is check your Sephora in JCP; not only have I found way more colors on sale than are available online, but sometimes they're as cheap as $2! While this polish wasn't as cheap as that (it was $6), but it's one that's still full price online and in the physical store. This is Photoelectric, from the Liquid Crystals collection.
matte metallic taupe gray" and it has a blue shimmer running throughout. This is one of the colors I really wanted from this collection, along with Singularity, but that I didn't want to pay full price for since the formula is pretty hard to work with (the only companies who can do matte shimmers well are Zoya and sometimes Julep). I actually even bought an Essie color from their Cashmere Mattes collection because it was similar to this one, but nothing ever beats the original.
orange rainbow mega-glitter" and it's such a pretty layering color! The base is a sheer orange and it's packed with orange iridescent glitter in various sizes. I don't know if you can really build this up to opacity on it's own (I did try, but after three coats the glitter was far too chunky to continue), but when I layered this over other colors (especially Zoya's Aggie), it is stunning! It's so sparkly, it's distracting. Which is exactly what I want in my polishes!
And that's everything! At least nail polish-wise... I think I did let these pile up for a little too long, but there have been so many good deals on polish lately that I just can't help myself!
Thanks for reading! <3
