Sally Hansen Rose Flush

Press Sample

I have three different Sally Hansen types to start sharing with you. This line is the Insta-Dri matte which says to wear just 1 stroke, 1 coat and it dries in 60 seconds. The brush is very long so you need to watch for drips but I'm putting it to the test! The polishes claim to dry down to a matte metallic finish. This is Rose Flush and is a soft rose with golden shimmer.

China Glaze Combat Blue-TS

Press Sample

I was moving polishes from one drawer to another when I came across this beauty from China Glaze - Combat Blue-TS from the Rebel Fall 2016 collection. This is such a rich blue matte and I could not WAIT to wear it.

Vapid. Spellcaster

As I was putting up some polishes in my Helmer today, I realized that I just have so many goodies to go through - it's a little surreal sometimes. Today I have Vapid. Spellcaster from Hella Holo Customs Facebook Group in 2016. This is a really pretty burgundy linear holo base with green shimmer and shifting flakes. I pulled out my original swatch stick and am happy to see that this polish has held up over time.

cuccio Left Wanting More

Press Sample

Today I have another delicate creme from cuccio's 2019 Coquette Collection. This is Left Wanting More which is listed an an "au natural beige." It was not quite putty color but I was really jiving with it.

Great Lakes Lacquer Love At Grand Prospect

Still going strong with these PolishCon NYC 2017 polishes. Today I have Great Lakes Lacquer Love At Grand Prospect which was the VIP polish from Great Lakes. This is a coral red with microglitter that just gives an extra little shimmer going on.

cuccio Flirt

I'm throwing it back to 2019 this week with the cuccio "Coquette Collection" from Spring 2019. If you've been a long-time reader, you may remember that 2019 was a roller coaster of a year. While I was rearranging my Helmers, I found this 8 piece collection that is flirty, sassy and delicate all at the same time. I'm starting off strong with Flirt, a pure cotton white creme.

Different dimension Enchant-mint

When I originally grabbed Different dimension Enchant-mint, a teal-mint holographic polish with a light blue & purple shimmer, I thought "Nah, not for me." But then I put it on and gosh, I forgot how much I love this color! This was from the Holo Hookup Enchanted Forest August 2017 box.

Girly Bits A Stripper Has Been Sleeping In My Bed

This polish is a fun one. This is Girly Bits A Stripper Has Been Sleeping In My Bed and it's chock full of glitter in a clear base.

Different dimension Rejoice

It's so weird how sometimes my blog feels like a time capsule. Google tells me I get traffic but where are y'all? Today I have Different dimension Rejoice, which is a silver linear holographic from the Homespun Holidays 2016 collection.

ILNP Currant

I'm halfway through the Studio Color polish from ILNP - today it's Currant, which is a rich plum purple polish. I was most excited for this polish and it's just as vampy as I thought.

KBShimmer Dust In The Bottle

I'm a sucker for holographic glitter top coat like KBShimmer Dust In The Bottle from the Summer 2015 collection. Mine has seen a little evaporation over the years but it's still pretty and applies easily.

ILNP Caramel

I have another Studio Color polish from ILNP - today it's Caramel, which is a rich orange-brown polish. I wasn't originally feeling this color but it's such a beautiful fall color.

Cupcake Polish Field of Flowers

I was randomly pulling polishes out of a box next to my desk that I had already made swatch sticks for and today is Cupcake Polish Field of Flowers from the Holo Hookup August 2017 box. Originally, this was a medium purple/lavender polish with blue flash but mine has faded quite a bit into more of a pink/lavender.
