I absolutely love this nail polish! It is such a bright (almost neon) pink, but has that purple undertone that makes it a little more unique. Relentless also performs as well as all the other Formula X for Sephora shades that I’ve tried (review HERE). I can’t wait to wear this more throughout the summer and spring!
What nail polish are you excited about pulling out for the warmer months?
I know that it has been awhile since my last Nail of the Day post, but I have really just been sticking to what I know in terms of nail polish. The few new shades that I have tried, were either too boring, not pretty enough, or I never got a chance to take pictures of before they chipped. Anyway, today’s nail is Coral Reef and it is apart of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Line. This is not a new shade for me, but it is one that I love. It is the prettiest bright pinky coral that applies nicely and wears a decent amount of time. The picture above is on my 3rd day of wearing this polish and I think that it held up pretty nicely. With Spring right around the corner, I wanted to get back into some brighter colors.
I love bright lipstick! Everytime I wear something bright on my lips, I feel happier and more pretty! I know, lame but true. Today’s look is showcasing Candy Yum Yum by MAC. This look can be done with any lip color, but I really wanted to show just how wearable CYY can be. Keep reading for more pictures and a video tutorial!
Sometime last year, I did a 5 minute makeup challenge in which I used the new OCC lip tar in Nylon. In that post, I mentioned that I thought Nylon was a dupe for the infamous Candy Yum Yum by MAC. At that time, Candy Yum Yum was a limited edition item, so I couldn’t get my hands on it. Last month, MAC finally listened to their loyal customers and decided to make Candy Yum Yum apart of their permanent line. I ordered it because it is probably the most talked about lipstick ever from MAC. Keep reading if you would like to see how the two lipsticks compare!
It’s almost the end of summer so I have been trying to get the last few uses out of my super bright nail polishes before fall hits. China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is a super bright neon pink with a hint of orange. This shade screams summer! I know this color shows up pretty bright in the picture, but it is even brighter in real life. I love the color of this polish. This is the first time I have worn it on my fingernails and right after I started polishing, I realized why. This took me 3 coats to get completely opaque. Also, because this is a neon, it has a matte finish which I personally am not a fan of. The picture above is shown with a top coat. The other downside of this polish is that it chipped within 24 hours (with a good base and top coat)! In my book, that is totally unacceptable, especially since I didn’t do anything that would normally make my polish chip. I will continue to wear this on my toes, but this is probably the last time it will touch my fingertips.
Have you tried Flip Flop Fantasy? Did you have a similar experience to mine?
