OPI — Snow Glad I Met You (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review


Collection: OPI 2017 Winter, Love OPI, XOXO

If I’m honest, I have been getting pretty bored with holiday nail collections in recent years—how many shimmery reds, glittery golds, and spangly silvers does one person really need? But, of course, I can’t often help myself if I see something pretty.

Snow Glad I Met You (HR J01), is a rather ho-hum ivory shimmer from OPI’s holiday collection, Love OPI, XOXO, and yet it found its way into my shopping basket. In hindsight, I should have let it be.

It’s a vintage ivory with a frosty champagne finish. I feel like it looks much more appealing in the bottle, somehow. Look at that warm glow!

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Queen, Please!, swatch

China Glaze — Queen, Please! (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: China Glaze 2017 Fall, Happily Never After (Halloween)

2017-10-27 EDIT: I’ve layered Queen, Please! over Crown for Whatever, and added the swatch photos at the end of this review. Worth it.

This is another stunner from China Glaze’s recently released Halloween-themed collection. I’ve previously reviewed Sin-derella, which is drop dead gorgeous.

Queen, Please! (84079) is a sheer but extremely shimmery, pale pinked champagne microglitter with a golden mint flash.

Chanel — Blanc White (Le Vernis Longwear) Swatch & Review

When beautyBOUTIQUE was running a sale, I picked up Blanc White (548), which is really more off-white than “white white”. It’s a semi-sheer ivory with a delicate, pearly finish. (I’m not sure why Chanel’s promo pic has it looking so very pink-beige!)

It’s a beautifully classic and conservative shade—really not my kind of thing at all! Ha! But as far as pretty, pale pearl polishes go, it’s really nice.
