Jordana Purple Glam

I bought Jordana Purple Glam on an impulse one day. I was at K-Mart stocking up on E.L.F. concealer brushes for my nail polish clean-up and I saw this polish. I had a feeling it would look like crap out of the bottle but that didn't stop me from trying it.

This is 2 coats of Purple Glam.

Purple Glam is a frosty purple polish with holographic glitter and holographic string glitter.

I actually kind of like this polish. Some of the string glitter gets lost in the base (which I thought would happen) but it had good coverage and I can't think of another polish in my collection like it.

I have to say, I was pretty happy with this one.

Have you ever bought a polish thinking it might disappoint you- but you were too curious to not get it?

Born Pretty Review: Smoky Grey Black Matte Polish

You can read my first Born Pretty Store Review here.

For my second Review for the Born Pretty Store I chose this polish.

This is BK Smoky Grey Black.

This polish is a black matte polish with silver shimmer.

I love shimmery black mattes like this. It makes a great base for glitters.

This polish went on smoothly and was opaque.

I then added a coat of Eternal Neo Crystal.

Neo Crystal is a shimmery hex glitter in a milky base that I used to accent Smoky Grey.

if you're looking for some nail art products I suggest checking Born Pretty out. They have a lot of great products for a reasonable price.

You can even use my coupon code: RMJ61 for 10% off.
It's good until December 31st.

Zoya Polishes

With the recent Zoya promo that let you add two polishes (of your choice) for free to your order- I picked up some polishes I was lemming. I also bought some signature items for me as well. I can't live without Qtica Balm or Qtica scrubs.

This is 2 coats of Poshe.

Poshe is a shimmery red matte polish.

I've been wanting this polish for a while but I have been waiting until a promo came up to order.

This is 2 coats of Veruschka.

Veruschka is a deep green matte shimmer polish.

Veruschka has also been on my wishlist for a while.

This is 1 coat of Neeka.

Neeka is a hard polish to describe. It's has a greyish purple base with what appears to be purple glitter/shimmer.

Neeka is from Zoya's newest collection.

Zoya, I am in love.

OPI Touring America Collection

The OPI Touring America Collection was a little less exciting than I was hoping but I have to say the formulas on these polishes were fantastic. 

This is 2 coats of French Quarter For Your Thoughts.

French Quarter For Your Thoughts is a slate grey creme.

I know this polish is a simple grey creme but it went on like butter.

This is 2 coats of Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window.

Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window is an olive green creme.

This name is very obnoxious. And a big turn off towards this polish.

This is 3 coats of Are We There Yet?.

Are We There Yet? is a coral shimmer polish. This one was a tad streaky so I added top coat.

This color isn't a color I usually wear but the shimmer gives it a little pop.

This is 2 coats of Road House Blues.

Road House Blues is a dark navy blue creme polish.

The formula on this one was so glorious. It was opaque and creamy.

While I'm not wowed by any of the colors, they make fabulous basics for my collection. 
Have you tried any of these new OPI polishes?

SpaRituals.. I Love Them So

Has my love for SpaRitual polishes shown at all? 

This is 3 coats of Reveal Yourself with top coat.

Reveal Yourself was a total impulse purchase. I rarely wear pink cremes like this.

I can't decide if I like this kind of polish or not.

This polish is a tad streaky but evened out with top coat.

This is 2 coats of Howl.

Howl is a dark brown shimmer polish.

Ah, this is much more my style. This polish is perfect for the fall. I'm already imagining it with a green autumn coat.

Milani Polishes

Recently I found a box of random Milani polishes at my local CVS. I was digging through it and happened to find my largest Milani lemmings- Bare To Wear and Dress Maker! I was so excited. :)

This is 2 coats of Bare To Wear.

Bare To Wear is a beige grey creme polish.

This polish is gorgeous. It's soft but not boring. Lovin' it.

This is 3 coats of Dress Maker.

Dress Maker is a teal green polish with shimmer.

This polish was a little streakier than I was expecting.

What is your favorite Milani?
