Flower Wednesday 9/5

A little blurry, but I photograph them immediately when I get them, or after any of the roses or flowers in general have opened up. Stay tuned for more Flower Wednesday blog posts! xo


NOTD: Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in Stiletto Red

So I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos and everyone and their mother is wearing red on their nails, and a lot of them are wearing this shade! I bought this color a month or two ago and it has just sat in my nail polish collection. It was $3.99 at Ulta, so it could be more/less expensive elsewhere. This is the only Rimmel polish that I own, but it says it lasts 10 days. So, naturally, I was curious.

I got a new base coat; the new Revlon Colorstay Base Coat has received some great reviews so I picked it up at my local Walmart for $4.97. Naturally, of course I sealed the deal with my Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. Maybe these two products will help the polish last more than 10 days? I guess we will find out! Enjoy! xo

NOTD: OPI I’m Not Really a Waitress

This is my first ever OPI NOTD and honestly, I’ve never really been fond of OPI polish in general. For starters, it’s $8.50/bottle, the formulation seems to be hit or miss from what I’ve read from fellow bloggers who buy every color from every collection, and I just never felt the need to purchase it. Well I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect shade of red polish for awhile now, and I’ll probably do a blog post dedicated to all of the red tone polishes that I’ve bought to try and find that red that I’ll love. This one is pretty close, not quite my absolute favorite, but it’s definitely Christmas time worthy.

All of these pictures were taken with my Motorola Droid X2 smartphone.

This is a permanent color to OPI’s line of polish. My sister told me about it and how it’s an absolute staple in her nail polish collection and that it’s almost always on her toes. We’ll see how this one pans out! Enjoy! xo
