Nicole by OPI You're An Angel Swatches and Review

Hello Everyone,
Today I am going to show you You're An Angel from Nicole by OPI. I mostly got this polish because it has my name in it even though I am far from an Angel lol.
Anyway, I'm really glad I got this one because 1. I don't own any pinks even close to this color and 2. It's just so pretty.And there was a surprise! When I saw it at the store it looked like a creme but when I put it on I saw it actually has pink and gold shimmer.There is a slight problem though, it is very sheer :(
On to the pics!

This is 3 coats.As you can see it is very sheer.

The rest are 2 coats over 1 coat of WnW French White Creme.

                                               See the pretty pink and gold shimmer?!?!

I had to include a pic of my newly adopted baby Prince of Purrsia :)
On to the review.
You're An Angel is very sheer so you would probably need 4-5 coats to reach full bottle color.
The formula was great.I had no problem's with the application.
I have had problems with their brushes before but not this one.I'm not sure if that is because it's an old brush or a new brush.
Overall I was pleased with this polish. I would give it an 8 out of 10 mainly because it's super sheer.

What do you think?

Orly Charged Up and Bubbly Bombshell Swatches and Review

Hello Everyone!

Today I'm going to show you Orly Charged Up with Bubbly Bombshell.
Orly Charged Up is a medium purple/grape creme jelly.From what I have seen in picture's it looks very similar to China Glaze's Grape Pop ( I don't own Grape Pop so I can not compare the two). I love Orly but I was actually pretty disappointed with this one.It had all kinds of bald spots so I had to put on 3 coats for an even finish and there was also some shrinkage after it had fully dried.I'm not sure if maybe I got an old bottle or what but I have never had any issue's with Orly, which is why it's my favorite brand.It's still pretty though and for some reason I seem to lean toward purple polishes!
Anyways, here's some pics of Charged Up all by herself.

And here Is Charged Up well all Charged Up haha!

I'm not a huge glitter fan but Bubbly Bombshell is so pretty I will have to do swatches of her all by herself soon.I used a makeup sponge and gradually sponged Bubbly Bombshell onto the tips.
And here are some pics of Charged Up,Bubbly Bombshell and one of the polishes my husband and I made called Mixed Berries.

Well there you have it.Even though I wasn't super happy with the application of Charged Up I still love Orly! I think this one might have sat for Lord know's how long at my Sally's and probably has nothing to do with Orly.
What do you think?

Hits Phenomena Moonbow Swatches and Review (pic heavy)

Hello everyone,I hope you all are having a wonderful day!
       Today I am going to show you Hits Phenomena Moonbow. Moonbow is packed with awesome multichrome glitter that shifts from gold to red to blue to green to magenta when you move your hand.It's so pretty I couldn't stop staring at my nails and moving my hands in all directions today.Even my husband said "That is a bad a** nail polish"!!
I wanted to make sure I got a picture at every angle I could,so prepare yourself,there are tons!I used 2 coats of Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Black Satin and 1 coat of Moonbow.

 I know these aren't the best pic's out there of this polish,but this sucker was not very photogenic!  
Now on to the review.
I have read bad things about the brush,but I didn't have any issues with mine.Application was very smooth.And unlike many other glitter's it doesn't feel like sand paper although it is a little gritty.I topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite.
This polish is transparent so it will need some underwear.
I can't really think of anything bad to say about this one.I love it.I think I might have actually found my favorite polish!! I must get her siblings!!
What do you think of Hits Moonbow?

Hits Moonbow can be purchased from Llarowe for $10.00 USD.

** This product was purchased by ME with my own money.I was not paid in any way for my honest opinion**

Sally Hansen HD DVD vs. Jesse's Girl Confetti and CND Effects Sapphire Sparkle

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! Today I have a possible "dupes" for you of Sally Hansen's HD DVD! I noticed they looked very similar when I was organizing them after my husband put up my shelves and thought "hey I should to a comparison post of these 3" haha so here it is.Oh and I also noticed when I was writing down my inventory that Jesse's Girl has two polishes with the name Confetti. Anyway when I was looking up swatches of CND Sapphire Sparkle someone said it was a dupe of DVD and I must admit it did look very similar but I needed to get it anyway to see for myself.So here I have all 3 on a nail wheel, all are 2 coats done over Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Black Satin.
                         L-R: Sally Hansen HD DVD Jesse's Girl Confetti CND Effects Sapphire Sparkle

While they all look alike Sapphire Sparkle is more Magenta and Blue instead of a deep purple and blue.

I think it's safe to say Jesse's Girl Confetti is a dupe of Sally Hansen HD DVD. What do you think?Which one do you like the most?
