Experiments in Jelly Sandwiching & More YA Gushing

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

I’m sorry for my absence these past two months! I don’t have an excuse for my blogging negligence. Well, I have an excuse, it’s just not a good one. I’ve been consumed by YA. My husband keeps saying he’s a YA widower. Specifically, Vampire Academy and the spin-off series, Bloodlines, have been particularly distracting. Ugh, love it so much. If you haven’t read this series, and you’re into YA, please don’t let the deceptively cheesy title dissuade you, it’s awesome (and only mildly cheesy). You simply must read it. Its got a bad-ass, no apologies, somewhat morally ambiguous female protagonist, vampires, love triangles, soap opera-y intrigue, brooding heroes… in other words, pretty much everything you’ll ever need in life. It’s also a smidgen on the smutty side – yes, please! The next installation comes out next month and I can hardly contain my age-inappropriate angst until I can get my hands on book 4 of Bloodlines. In case you’re wondering, yes, I am ashamed of myself. I’ve been, not even kidding, harassing every single person I know to read this – sure, my friends and coworkers hate me now but I did cause a wait list at the library for book 1 and I’m proud of that.

VA/Bloodlines hasn’t been my only distraction. I’ve also been checking out the books recommended by you all in the comments section of the last post. I just finished City of Bones this morning. Boy, that was a bizarre roller-coaster of double-you-tee-eff. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it but about half way through, I thought to myself… is this going where I think it’s going? Then I immediately thought no, no way, that cannot be where this story is going. Well, that was precisely where the story went and I found myself at the end of the book having to recover from a holy-shit-record-scratch-wha….-WHAT?!?! -WHAAAAAAT?!?!-moment. That was followed by frantic texting to other YA addicted peeps. Their feelings were similar to mine, i.e., straight baffled. I didn’t love the book but I think I’m going to stick with the series just to see how this creative cluster is going to unravel.

I only have one, slightly better excuse for abandoning you guys… I started writing a novel. *cricket sounds* I know, I know… ridiculous lofty goal. I dunno, the new iPhone update came out and I was so frustrated by it that I started fantasizing about ways to destroy it. Think me pummeling my cellphone with a baseball bat, Office Space style with Still by the Geto Boys playing in the background. That frustration gave me a pretty good idea for a dystopian themed science fiction story. I’m only in the beginning stages now and I’m still making decisions about things like whether to tell the story in first person or third person, whether to have only one or multiple point-of-view characters, etc.. I’ve written one exploratory chapter so far and I’ve come to a few conclusions. First, fiction writing is really hard so I’m going to stop hating on the writing of others, especially YA authors. Second, fiction writing is a lot of fun and I wish I had explored it academically when I was younger. I mean, I’ve always enjoyed writing, hence this blog, but there’s something really cool about going through the process of getting into a character’s head, figuring out their motivations and how their thoughts and actions shape events in a story. I’ve spent a good portion of the past two months thinking about characters and plot development, etc..

My adventure into fiction is just for fun but please be tolerant of my blogging flakiness while I evolve into the angsty, tortured writer I was always meant to be. : P

In any case, enough blabbing about fiction, now for some nail polish. A couple of months back, I was experimenting with evolving manis and layering. This is one of those NOTDs. I got a lot of compliments on it and a friend even tried her own version using Chanel Blue Satin and a silver glitter polish whose name escapes me at the moment.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Inky

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Inky. Inky is a good descriptive name for this color because ink-like is exactly what it is – it’s a very, very pigmented, uber dark night blue, almost black. This swatch is two coats, but it’s definitely a one coater. The formula was a bit on the thick side, I thinned it a little before application. This brand is new to me – the brush is similar to the Pro-wide but slightly less wide. Beware, this a hardcore stainer. My nails and fingers were smurfy, to say the least, and I had to whip out the Bubble White to get it off.

Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me over OCC Inky

I topped Inky with Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me, (RIP SOPI *spills a bit of my drink*) a sort of antique gold glitter polish composed of both medium size hexagonal and small circular glitter. This is just one coat of polish – although I did use the dabble method to get evenly dispersed glitter on the surface of the nail.

Layering Rehab over Only Gold for Me over Inky

I finished it off with 3 coats of my beloved Lippmann Rehab, a dark blue jelly, that is still one of my favorite colors ever, even after all this time. I really loved the final look, sort of like a hex version of Essie Starry Starry Nights. Gosh, I love jelly sandwiches.

Are you guys over the jelly sandwich thing yet? Because I’m totally not.

Annnnnnd, excuse me while I cheese out for just one more minute, have you read Vampire Academy/Bloodlines? If so, what team were you on?! (*hint* there is only one correct answer to this question, hahaha.) Also keep the book recommendations coming, I’ve been zooming through these and I have to keep replenishing my to-read pile.

Learning a Lesson: Oscar de la Renta Larimar

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Some of you may remember my wedding post from a couple of months back – I mentioned a nail polish shown in a runway photo from Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection that sparked my interest in having blue nails at my wedding. For reference, here’s the photo I was talking about:

182888434837973990_YBn5ElSa_f

(Photo Credit: Society Bride)

At the time, I didn’t realize that this was a real color – I figured it was some frankened combo made by some genius nail tech especially for this runway shoot. A few months after my wedding a friend from the nail community alerted me to Larimar, a color being sold on Oscar de la Renta’s website for $22. My eyes popped out of my head – there it was… the color I was looking for… that truly beautiful ethereal, seemingly surreal blue from the runway show!! I died a little and after my resurrection I forked over the 22 bucks to snag myself a bottle.

Oscar de la Renta Larimar

Oscar de la Renta Larimar is the truest light blue creme I have ever seen. My photo is a little inaccurate, it’s a smidge lighter in real life. All the light blues in my collection, for example China Glaze Moody Blue and Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom, seem to lean green in comparison. I really love the color but the polish was a bit of a disappointment. First, while the runway photos were color accurate, that seemingly translucent, backlit quality exhibited in the photos (that, frankly, made this polish look so special) did not translate to my mani. I don’t know whether that should be attributed to the number of coats I used - I failed to write it down in my notes but I believe it was around 4. Second, this is a PITA to apply. Somewhat thick but thin at the same time – I ended up using the slather and sculpt method (slathering it on willy-nilly, then very carefully cleaning up afterwards). The bottle and brush shape did not help the PITA-ness at all. The bottle is longer than an average nail polish bottle, as a result the brush was very long. If you do your nails often and you’re used to a standard bottle size, you’re probably also used to judging the amount of polish you need in relation to how the polish flows down the brush shaft. For me, judging the polish stream on the brush is an unconscious, automatic action – with this longer brush, more polish than normal flows or drips downward on the brush causing unexpected pooling. That took some getting used to, for sure.

This polish presented an interesting conundrum for me. As a polish blogger, I’m often explaining to people that photos won’t always be accurate. There’s so much that goes into how a color in a photo looks – just to name a few factors, the lighting, the skintone of the model, the camera, and the computer monitor being used to see the photo will all effect how the polish color appears. When I first started blogging again, I went to a photography store to buy a new lighting system because I had long ago chucked my old DIY light box. I tried to explain to the owner of the store what this site is about - he was a career products photographer so he was definitely the right person to talk to about nail polish photo color accuracy. He pretty much told me flat-out, ”you will never get the color in the photo to look exactly how you see it in real life.” I really do make a conscious effort to ensure that my photos are as accurate as possible. I don’t use editing software for color correcting, because, well, I’m bad at it – I only make it worse. So, when accuracy is not possible, I try to make sure that I tell you about it. I know a lot of people get really frustrated when they see a photo of a color on a site, order it thinking that they are getting the color that they saw, only to find the color in real life looks nothing like it looks on the site. I can honestly say that I’ve never felt that way until I got this color. Since I started collecting, I’ve always looked at swatches online before making a purchase. In doing so, I’ve always expected there to be some level of inaccuracy associated with the photos. I was never disappointed when a color ended up being different then a swatch I’d seen… until this color. I guess it’s because there aren’t many colors I come across that seem really unique. This color, in the runway photos, seemed really special – I was expecting a crelly with an inner luminescence, only to get a standard crème. Now been that I’ve in the shoes of a frustrated swatch viewer, I totally understand why peeps complain about that.

With all that said – is this color worth it? Hefty price tag, color inaccuracies, application issues and all? The surprising answer is yes. It’s not what I expected and that was disappointing but I couldn’t find anything in my stash quite like it. And it’s seriously pretty. Totally would have worn this to my wedding if I had owned it at the time (even over my Mother’s objections).

What are your thoughts on color inaccuracies? Is it a pet-peeve or do you leave room for error?

Zoya NYFW Designer Collection Fall 2012 Swatches

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Just when I thought things were beginning to calm down, I had, without any exaggeration, the roughest two weeks at work that I can remember. And it really was the perfect storm because in addition to work stress I’ve been dealing with some major life stress too. I’m sure you know all how it is… sometimes things get so that you only have enough wherewithal to keep your head above the water. And, unfortunately, when I get overwhelmed I have a tendency to just want to go to work, come home, and lay in bed (and watch Netflix so I’ve been watching Bones like whoa.) I think things are under control now but there won’t be any swatching for a little while. I’ve been stress-picking at my nails so I’ll have to wait a little while for them to be healthy again – they are in no condition to be photographed. But fear not! I still have a ton of back log from the lack of recently posting and the swatch-fest I had at the end of February. Thank you for sticking with me through this rough period – blogging is really rewarding for me and although it’s the first thing that I let fall by the wayside when I get stressed (along with actually doing my nails, reading, and exercising… and um pretty much anything that requires mental or physical activity haha) it’s something that I really want to keep doing.

Anywho, that’s enough boo-hooing from me. Behold, my swatches of Zoya NYFW Designer Collection Fall 2012. I know I’ve been saying this a lot about Zoya lately but I really feel like they’ve stepped up their game color-design-wise. Love, love, love this collection – moody, edgy but mature cremes that fit together thematically, now that is a collection of nail polish. Obviously, for me the stand outs are Noot, Evvie, and Natty but Rehka, Toni, and Monica are nothing to scoff at either. All in all, a solid collection definitely worth owning.

Zoya Evvie

Zoya Evvie *cat calls* is a green tinged soot gray creme, with an overall muted, somewhat faded look. I live for colors like this – edgy but not obvious. The application was great, perfect at two coats but this is three.

Zoya Monica

Zoya Monica is a moody dark eggplant crème. Like Evvie, the application was excellent. This is three coats.

Zoya Natty

Zoya Natty oh, where have you been all my life. Natty is tough to describe. I know I sound like a broken record - it’s an edgy, moody, darkened, grayed-out denim blue. This collection, and this color in particular, has made me come to a sad realization. What am I going to do when this grayed-out trend is over? Will my passion for polish die with it? Will I ever love another nail polish ever again? Like Evvie, I wore this one to work because it’s not obvious. The application was great – this is three coats.

Zoya Noot

Zoya Noot is a dark smoky muted army-ish green. Again, like Natty and Evvie, this color is moody and chic. I’ve read that OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fein! is a close dupe – I can’t independently confirm that because I haven’t picked up the Germany collection yet. But you can see LTHP’s comparison here. Like the others, application was perfect – this is three coats.

Zoya Rekha

Zoya Rekha (sorry typo on the photo!) is a deep vampy medium red crème – it’s hard to peg the base color, at first glance in the bottle it seemed orange based. On the nail, at one coat, it seemed pink based. Zoya describes it as blood red – that’s accurate. Red is red and like most reds, this one is sexy and flattering. This is three coats, smooth application.

Zoya Toni

And, finally, Zoya Toni a muted vampy plum-toned oxblood crème. Oxblood. Definitely the “it” shade of last year but what a baffling name for a color. What is the origin of that phrase? Does an ox’s blood look like burgundy? If we’re going for, like, strong, scary animals… Why not lionblood or tigerblood? But I digress, this is 3 coats and the application was perfect.

So, do you agree? Is Zoya stepping up their game? or am I alone on that one?

A Few Polishes From Pretty Serious Cosmetics

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Pretty Serious Cosmetics is the beauty brainchild of long time friend and fellow nail blogger Kaz, of Pretty Random. I still remember reading on Facebook while I was on hiatus that Kaz was launching her own brand of cosmetics. She’s living the dream with pretty amazing results. Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality of these polishes as well as the gorgeous, vivid colors. Application was perfect with most of these. PSC polishes retail for 9.95 AUD, which right now equals roughly 10.40 USD. Also, a 10% discount is available if you purchase full collection sets. Although Pretty Serious is based in Australia, they do ship to the US and a few other countries.  I have several PSC lemmings to fulfill and, hopefully, I’ll be able to do a mini-haul soon. Of course, I’ll (slowly) post my spoils for you all. Until then though, here are a few pretties for your consideration:

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Morning Java – so, so complex. I’m not even sure how to begin to describe this color. The base is a sort-of milk chocolate-y brown, booming with gold shimmer and fine glitter. It sparkles gold, copper, and a hint of green. The application was awesome, perfect at 2 coats.

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Dream Delight is multisize irregularly shaped silver glitter suspended in a grey tinted transparent base. If you look closely, you’ll also see some very sparse holo glitter and hex glitter. The hexes are very sparse, in this whole swatch I only spotted one. The glitter is completely opaque at two coats, very cool. I used two coats of Gelous to smooth-out the surface.

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Nightopia is bluish green with fine shimmer and a tiny touch of gold shimmer. Wooweee. This color reminds me of Bloom Bianca and Rimmel Mania (both of which are hiding somewhere in my stash!!!). Rimmel Mania is from my original nail polish stash, circa 1999-2002! I do hope I find these soon and I will post comparisons when I do. For now, you can check out Polish Insomniac’s comparison of the two shades.

Without being able to look at my bottles and from looking at swatches online, I believe Nightopia might be a bit deeper than Mania and Bianca. Either way, Nightopia might be a lemming quencher as Mania is long discontinued and Bloom polishes retail for 19.95 AUD (Whoa… were they that expensive 3 years ago? I have so many of them in my collection but I can’t imagine I would have bought so many at that price). Application was easy, this is 3 coats.

And, finally, last but definitely not least – the ridiculously beautiful BSOD (Blue Screen of Death):

Pretty Serious Cosmetics BSOD (Blue Screen of Death)… HOLY $#!+. This photo does this color no justice, no justice at all. No matter how I set up the lighting, I just couldn’t capture the true beauty of this color – suffice it to say that this photo is sadly inaccurate. It does not even begin to capture to the gorgeousness of this color, not even a little. It is so much more than a night sky polish - it’s really in a league of its own. It was absolutely breath-taking, I couldn’t stop staring at it the entire time I wore it. And that’s not to mention the compliments – this one is definitely a show stopper. Even my beloved Essie Starry Starry Nights pales in comparison. In fact, I think BSOD may either bump SSN from the top 20 or take a spot of its own. That is how much I truly LOVE this color.

Okay, let me stop gushing and start describing. BSOD looks like fine blue glitter suspended in blue jelly, and, boy, does it glow. To me, it looked less like the night sky and more like a blue version of the green scrolling text from The Matrix. This mani was 4 coats. BSOD dries non-glossy, so I used 1 coat of Gelous under 1 coat of Seche Vite.

My only criticism of this other-worldly color is that the application was not as great as the other polishes. It was a bit thick, not horrible, but my bottle could definitely benefit from a few drops of thinner. The wear was pretty impressive – 4 days, no chips or tip wear.

Have you tried Pretty Serious? If so, any other colors I need to pick up when I haul?

A Few Shades From The China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection Fall 2012

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

I’m late to the party on this one… I should just stop saying this as it seems I am perpetually late to the party. The truth is, I swatched these a long time ago but I’ve been so backed up I haven’t had a chance to post them yet. I’m having some much-needed down time this week and it’s giving me an opportunity to catch up on posting.

I missed the little metallic-duochrome revolution sparked by Chanel Peridot. The unanimous consensus from speaking to other bloggers and collectors was that Peridot was a game changer. A few people, having no inkling of the phenomenon that would soon follow, rushed to buy back-ups of the then unique color. Now, nearly every major brand has a Peridot-like shade. There are SO many dupes, in fact, that they’ve been affectionately dubbed “peri-dupes.” In the long-long ago, I often voiced my frustration that nail polish companies failed to remarket or recreate highly sought-after discontinued shades. Although greens are common now, four years ago, getting a dark green often meant shelling out the big bucks for an older shade like NARS Zulu or OPI Jasper Jade. The frenzy caused by those colors went seemingly unnoticed (or ignored) as companies released an endless cycle of the same shimmery reds every season. The prevalence of peri-dupes seems to suggest that there may have been a shift in market strategy. The question then becomes whether the peri-duping phenomenon will be isolated only to Peridot or whether color copycating will be a new industry standard. I’m conflicted. On the one hand, I like to see inexpensive dupes of more expensive colors. I sink money on Chanel all the time, especially lately, but I rather spend less when possible. I begrudgingly passed on Peridot because I had already purchased OPI Just Spotted the Lizard. (Granted, I had to be talked down off the ledge by Scrangie because I really wanted Peridot, just for the sake of having it, even after seeing her comparison.) On the other hand, I’m troubled by the fact that since nearly every brand released a peri-dupe based shade or collection recently that also necessarily means that they did not release something new and exciting instead.

Of course, I have to wonder whether Peridot would have been so widely copied if it had been released by a less prestigious brand. Would there be so many peri-dupes if the original was Wet n Wild Peridot instead of Chanel Peridot? I think the color is unique enough that the nail polish community would have gone ga-ga over it regardless of the brand, but my guess is that there would have been no industry attention to the shade without the Chanel name attached to it.

In any case, Peridot has definitely left its mark and here are four shades from the New Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection, China Glaze’s interpretation of the metallic-duochrome trend. I only have 4 to show you. I skipped Want My Bawdy, sorry, shimmery, metallic-y medium blues don’t usually appeal to me and the name offends my Victorian sensibilities, haha. I also skipped Rare and Radiant, the China Glaze peri-dupe, for the same reason I skipped the original. You can see swatches of the whole collection on Scrangie’s blog - her post is also worth checking out because it discusses other known dupes for the colors in this collection. According to Scrangie’s post, a few shades correspond with colors by Deborah Lippmann - I can’t give much insight on that because my collection is still catching up with recent releases.

China Glaze Unpredictable, oh, love this metallic-y goodness. Unpredictable shifts from yellow-green to green to green-blue. The finish, like the other colors in this collection, is very mirrored. If you look closely you can see my camera’s reflection on my nail.  As hard as I tried with my limited photography skills, I just could not capture the blue shift which is only visible at certain angles. This is 4 coats.

China Glaze Swanky Silk is a rose-toned gold duochrome. The gold is very light, as is the pink tone, which gives it an antique-like foil effect – that quality, I thought, made it office safe.

 This one is more subtle than the others and not as reflective. Because the reflections are less obvious, it only slightly darkens the color on the nail, making it appear tarnished. The application was good but Swanky Silk is a bit sheer, so this mani is 4 coats.

Here’s a side shot to show the delicate pink tone.

I decided to mattify this using Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Matte Top Coat after a couple of days of wear. This look is my favorite – I think the other shades would look great mattified as well. The mattification did away with most of the duochrome and left only a very light rosy gold overall color.

China Glaze Deviantly Daring, love, love, love. In the bottle Deviantly Daring is a green to blue duo-chrome. The shift doesn’t translate as well on the nail but, still, the result is a gorgeous greenish-blue with a foil-like metallic finish. This was very tough to photograph, like the others, my camera’s reflection made the color appear much darker.

Here’s Deviantly Daring at a different angle with less reflection to show the greenish-blue. I noticed with this whole collection that the brushstrokes become less obvious as the polish dries – which is good.

Sometimes, at some angles, the color shifts from a deep blue to the more electric blue, captured above. I wore this as a full mani, this is 3 coats and one coat of Seche Vite. I scooped this one up on sale at Sally’s - it was 50% off. Woot, woot!

China Glaze No Plain Jane seems different from the other shades in this collection. In the bottle it looks like a gold to purple duochrome. During application, it looked like there was metallic purple shimmery pigment suspended in a gray toned base. On the nail it just looked like a standard shimmery purple that would sometimes shift to a more gray-toned purple. The formula was very sheer, but it was good at 3 coats.

Finally, this collection features silver caps. I suppose this was done because this is a “chrome” collection. I own several old silver capped China Glaze polishes. Despite their age, the caps are still mostly pristine – which is unique for silver caps. My older silver capped OPI bottles are getting discolored. My previous experience with China Glaze silver caps made me pretty surprised to find that the silver caps in this collection are much lower quality. I had some acetone on my fingertips and the silver actually rubbed off on my finger! C’mon China Glaze, bring back those awesome older silver caps!

What do you think about the peri-dupe phenomenon? Do you appreciate more affordable dupes of expensive colors? Or would you prefer that companies expend effort creating new colors as opposed to copying already existing shades?

Blue for Diabetes Awareness Month: Sephora by OPI Cartwheels on the Catwalk

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Last week I received a touching email from a very inspiring woman named Hannah. Rae, Hannah’s 10 year-old daughter, was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Hannah describes her daughter as beautiful and incredibly resilient. Hannah’s email explained that November 14 is world diabetes day – around the world people encourage diabetes awareness by wearing the color blue. While I’ve never dealt with diabetes on a personal level, I have many friends and loved ones that have battled the diabetes. Hannah’s email prompted me to pull out the blue helmer drawer and select a fitting color to show support for Hannah, Rae and the 26 million other Americans that fight Diabetes everyday. So here are some more facts from the American Diabetes Association:

1 in every 400 children and adolescents have diabetes.

1.9 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older in 2010.

While Type 1 Diabetes is not preventable, a healthy diet and exercise can help reduce the risk of the Type 2 Diabetes.

I can only imagine how difficult it must for a parent and young child to cope with a disease as all-encompassing as Diabetes. So here’s Sephora by OPI Cartwheels on the Catwalk for Hannah and Rae! <3

I picked up Sephora by OPI Cartwheels on the Catwalk recently. I saw someone post it on twitter and immediately called Sephora to see if they had anymore bottles available. It was released as a part of the Betsey Johnson Spring 2012 Collection. At the time the collection was on clearance so I snagged it and a bottle of Sephora by OPI XOX Betsey for a mere 5 bucks a pop. *does a snoopy dance*

Cartwheels on the Catwalk is a gorgeous, intriguing shade of ultra light blue that leans towards green. Not exactly pastel, it’s a sleepy, muted light blue. I LOVE the color, it’s very flattering to my skin-tone. The application however… well, we have a word for it: PITA. I had to do battle with this one – it was a bit thick and chalky. As expected, it applied unevenly. Each coat pulled off the previous coat no matter how long I waited between coats. This even happened with the top coat, causing a lackluster finish. Usually I would have just left well-enough alone, but this time I decided to try to fix it. As it turns out, an extra coat of top coat solved the problem pretty well. This NOTD is 3 coats of color and 3 coats of top coat (Cult Nails Wicked Fast under Zoya Armor under Cult Nails Wicked Fast). I wouldn’t call this color work appropriate but it’s demure enough that if someone were so inclined, they could definitely sneak it into a work/office environment. (*wiggly eyebrows* Whaaaaat? It was for a good cause!)

Ultimately, I like the color enough that I’m willing to overlook my application woes. But I’m still hunting for the perfect shade of light blue. If you remember, I posted about my dream wedding shade. I didn’t know this at the time but Oscar de la Renta actually makes that polish!!!!! (I don’t know why that didn’t occur to me when I first saw that color… I mean a lot of big name designers have polish lines. I guess I just automatically assumed it was some sort of nail artist franken created especially for that runway show.) I ordered bottles of it recently, we shall see if it lives up to those gorgeous photos!
