Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades. I felt all of these did really compliment my skin tone and would be extremely wearable all on their own.

 First up, we have the grey polish, which is called Extraordinary (whenever I see that word, I think of that saying: "the only thing separating ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra" - I feel like I just think of the film Waiting.. anyways..) - the grey is exquisite, the formula is amazing, which I do expect with all Formula X polish. I have not come across one that has sucked yet! I paired it with Mrs. P's Potions Santa's Pants on Fire (Limited Edition) polish.

 Next is the pink polish, and it is called Intensity. What can I really say about this one? It is a pretty pale pink - plays well with my pink undertones - I quite like it! I paired it with GOSH Girls On Film polish that I picked up a couple of weeks ago from Shoppers.

 If I wasn't so obsessed with the blue polish, this nude shade would be my favourite. I have never been a fan of nude polish on me - but this one I do like. I will be using it again for the recreation of that IG mani soon. But, for now, this beautiful nude, called Invincible, was paired with Dollish Polish You Guys Give Up? Or Are You Thirsty For More? I looooove this combo!

Ahhh finally.. my personal fave from the collection - this blue.. just.. glows against my skin tone! OBSESSED!!! This gem is called Provocative, and I paired it with Mrs. P's Potions Drop The Ball (limited edition) - such a good pairing. I did get muchos compliments on these when I wore it as a full mani.

My verdict on this little set - I am sure there are many polish out there that would match these polish shades, but, this is an adorable little set and they all click together and don't take up a lot of space. I would say nab one for yourself.. especially if you are a polish enthusiast.

That is all for today -- see you all again soon!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!! I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica , SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica . They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!! One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop .. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well. I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop :  “ DuWop Natural, Yet Glamorous Cosmetics Created out of the needs a

Sticks 'n Stones GIVEAWAY!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to post up a quick announcement about a little giveaway I'm doing.. I am going to tie it in to two things, but technically it will just be one.. I'll explain! I recently hit 400 followers and wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate that - aka celebrate all of you being completely awesome and following my nail polish endeavours! But the things I wanted to include in my giveaway keep being unavailable to me.. Except for Cover Band's Sticks 'n Stones and that is only because when I had ordered my bottle, I ordered a second to giveaway.. ALSO.. I decided to .com my blog. I had talked about it with my dad (he actually talks about how when he googles my name now my blog shows up and how he sees the images some times and that he thinks I'm awesome) and I declared: when I hit 400 followers, I'm going to .com it up! So I did. SO! While I say this is to celebrate both of these marvelous things, I still want to have a more.. substant
