Perfectly Painted Quo by Orly 12 Polish Set

Hey everyone!

So, last weekend, at Shoppers (here in Canada) - they had a redeem your points for extra points.. whatever it was.. point redemption program. Yeah.

Anyways. I knew of 2 items I wanted to get.. then I saw this bucket of polish and thought 'why not!? I can blog this!'

Thankfully it was point redemption. This bucket of 12 minis was... like.. $32?! 12.. minis. Gross price for what it is. Now, had I have seen the price before I picked it up, I would not have even bothered. I mean, the polish is nice - but minis. Bleh.

Anyways. Besides the price totally sucking, I still went forth and swatched the colours. Some of them are amazing. None of them were terrible. So, small bonus.

I will go on to the photos, and just tell you the nam- oh, wait.. NONE OF THEM ARE NAMED. WTF?! THAT IS THE BEST PART OF POLISH. Ok, one of the best parts.

Yeah. Zero names. The sadness is overwhelming! $32 and 12 nameless mini polish. Cry.


I mean, looking at the shades.. you get a great mix..

This is a lovely peachy-nude, I used 3 coats. Dried exquisitely! 

Peachy-pink. 3 coats. The colour is very nice.
 
This is a grey-purple shift kind of polish. I know lots of people really like these.. they are all right. 2 coats.
 
This.. this polish is magical! It is like a smoky-lilac-grey gritty polish. Huge fan! 1 coat over that grey-purple number.
This is that classic cool-tone barbie pink. I like it. A fun colour! 2 coats.
 
 Midtone purple. I feel like this colour and that barbie pink colour are too tone-ally close to one another to include both in this set. Meh. 2 coats.
The colour of the season.. a nice burgundy shade. 2 coats.
 
   
This looks quite 'red' in the photo, but I would describe it as a raspberry pink.. polish people will get it. The formula on this shade was a dream!
 2 coats.  

This one.. I like this one. These 2 gritty glitter numbers were so fun! This is a red-gold shade, and it was 1 coat over that raspberry pink colour. I feel if you went over a purple polish, the colour might pull more purple-y. It might be a shifty polish.
 
Mint green polish. Always a crowd pleaser. Nice to work with. 2 coats.
 
These teal colours.. I owned one that was identical to this one by OPI back in the day. I always find them a pain in the ass to work with. The colour is lovely, though. 2 coats.
 
 And lastly, this little orange-red gem. I quite like it. 2 coats.

As you can see, there is really no 'awful' colour in the mix. Other than that purple being suuuuper tone-ally close to the barbie pink. 

I don't think I would recommend really getting this set unless you're a major Quo by Orly fan. I feel the price for what you get isn't worth it. 12 minis for like $32?! ugh. That just bothers me for some reason. AND THEY AREN'T NAMED. That kills me the most.

I will put these to use, but again, there isn't anything that I cannot already find in my collection (basically). But hey - live and let learn!

That is all for today. See you 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
