China Glaze has brought out their OMG! Flashback collection. This is a 6 piece collection of holographic nail polishes, that are inspired by the original ‘OMG’ collection that came out 10 years ago. They have special holographic caps as well.
It seems like they pretty well redid all of the same shades, except for one called ‘LOL’. They all still have the text-lingo based names as well.
If you’re not sure what holographic is, it means that shimmery sparkly fun that shows the full spectrum of the rainbow when under bright lights. It’s one of my favorite things, and before this not too popular in the mainstream polish world. But now we have 6 new shades from China Glaze!
I picked these up from transdesign.com, but you can also find them on head2toebeauty.com and in Sally Beauty stores.
Normally Sinful Colors is putting out 25 (slight exaggeration) collections every year, so I notice when there’s a little lull in new polishes from them. The last big release was the Vanessa Hudgens collection and that seems like forever ago now. They didn’t put out a 4th of July collection, so when I saw teasers of these neons, I got so excited.
Just Sinful Colors, take my money.
This is the ‘Wild At Heart’ collection, and it features 6 limited edition Neon shades, as well as a white base and top coat. I found these in a display at Walgreens. These retail for $2.99 instead of the normal $2. They do this for the special collections, so I wasn’t surprised.
We’re continuing on with the summer collections! We’re basically halfway through the summer now! How’s it been for you? I’ve honestly had a great summer so far, and am looking forward to some cooler temperatures and sunny days.
I’ve got a typical 6 bottle collection from Essie to talk about today! It’s loosely based on the festival theme we’ve been seeing pop up throughout all the makeup and nail collections. There are 4 creams and 2 shimmers. Let’s get right into it!
With Wet N Wild’s recent summer collection, the ‘Flights of Fancy’, they also put out a fun little nail collection! It’s been so long since they’ve put out any limited edition shades of their polish (their Megalast formula is SO good) and I’ve really missed them. The limited edition shades were always so good, and it was before I was really into blogging, so I missed out on all the pretties.
So when I saw they had this, I knew I had to pick it up, because of the crazy collector in me. It quickly sold out on the website, but I stumbled upon it at my local grocery store not too long after, and basically danced in the aisles. I know it might be a little hard to find, but it’s out there somewhere! And I still just wanted to show them in case someone saw them!
These are definitely smaller bottles. They’re only 0.24 fl oz, whereas in comparison a normal bottle of OPI or most other polishes is 0.5fl oz. So they’re about half the size of a normal bottle of polish. These were $2 each as well, so still very affordable.
Since they’re part of the ‘Flights of Fancy’ collection, they have the same detailing on the caps that the glosses had as well. Definitely fun to have out to display.
We’re continuing on with all the reviews – lord, they’re already announcing fall and Halloween collections. AH. But for me it’s still summer, and we’re working our way through summer collections. So of course, it’s time for the OPI Summer collection.
GREASE IS THE WORD, IS THE WORD. Okay I’m done. But come on, it’s a collection based on Grease! An icon! A classic! So of course, with its 40th anniversary this year, OPI based their whole summer collection on it. With Grease themed names, and some fun textures as well, we got a lot of fun to talk about.
So of course, as always OPI does a whole 12 piece collection. And then they added 3 more ‘Leather Like’ finish polishes. So that was 15 shades to swatch and talk about. Lord, OPI you kill me. But I love you too much.
Let’s get into this shall we since there’s gosh dang 15 polishes to talk about here. Yeesh, I tell ya, I’ll try to be short, but you know how I am. I can’t be blamed for having to talk about 15 polishes in one post.
Well, it’s been a while. I’ve missed you all. I feel weird not posting in so long. But you know, life got busy. I’ve got a full time job + freelancing on the side, besides this blog, so sometimes the posts just don’t happen. But I miss it! I missed posting, and I hate not posting regularly. So here we go, prepare for all the posts. I’ve got a lot to make up for.
So here we’re starting with a little small one. This might be a little old news, but these are still beautiful polishes, and there’s a chance you can still find them out at a Walgreens or a Rite Aid (or have a lovely person send them to you when you don’t have a Rite Aid anywhere near you).
This is a small little collection from Sinful Colors, called ‘Boho Beat’. It’s made up of 3 new shades. (There’s more Sinful collections on the way as well).
We only got 3 polishes to swatch here, so let’s just get right into it!
