Orly ‘Darlings of Defiance’ Winter 2017 Collection

We finally made it through Winter collections! And before the first day of Spring! That was really my main goal. I planned on having this up earlier, but I was hosting visitors at my apartment last weekend, and then was recovering from that, while simultaneously having a super busy week where I was barely home.

But now, now I’ve had time to sit down and work through some posts. I’ve got this one, as well as the OPI Lisbon collection, the Wet n Wild Goth-o-Graphic collection, and the new Sinful Colors core shades coming your way, so lots of good reviews for now.

But for now, like the random cold snap we’ve been having over here, we’re going back to Winter. Specifically the last Winter collection that had been hanging out in my home unloved.

It’s been a while since I’ve swatched an Orly collection – I skipped out on the summer collection. I was already behind season in swatching for those, and wasn’t interested in the neons by the time I got around to it, so I just passed. But that by no means I don’t love Orly. I missed them truly, and I’m glad to have some bottles in my hands again. And lemme tell you, they really found their way back in my heart again, and made me regret putting them off so long. But don’t worry, they’re getting their day now.

OPI ‘Love OPI, XOXO’ Winter 2017 Collection

YO GIRL HAS ANOTHER WINTER REVIEW FOR YA.

That’s right, I’m still making my way through these holiday collections, and we’re halfway through. I have another 12 bottle collection from China Glaze, and then Orly, and then we’ll finally be finished and begging for the spring and summer sun.

Since this is a 12 bottle collection, standard from OPI, it’s a long post, so I’ll stop rambling and just get on into it.

This winter collection is called ‘Love OPI, XOXO’, and as you might be able to tell, it’s a very glam, sparkly, girly collection. PERFECT FOR FEBRUARY, AM I RIGHT. Hey, I’m an advocate of wearing whatever color you want, no matter the season. So be blingy in February, when everything is dull and gray. So let’s get into the swatches already.

Essie Winter 2017 Collection

Hey-o it’s the start of winter collection reviews! I know right, just in time for spring!

Nah, it’s still winter here in Chicago. We got a couple more months before it feels like spring so I’m set. I’ll get these reviews out, and we can finally be ahead of the seasons, as any good blogger should be. I, of course, will be sprinkling in makeup reviews as I go, because that gives me an excuse to also keep buying more makeup.

This blog is my excuse to buys so much nail polish and makeup. You guys are my enablers, DON’T LET THE ADDICTION DOWN.

But anyways, this review. This is the Essie Winter 2017 collection, and it’s of course a 6 bottle collection. I like putting these shorter reviews in the middle of the big ass 12 bottle collections. Breaks it up. Makes it easier. Let’s talk about nail polish.

So let’s get right into swatches.
