Revlon’s Enamor: Perfect Bubble Gum Pink

One of my guilty pleasures is walking through CVS, Walmart, Target, or Walgreens off the late night looking at nail polish. CVS and Walgreens usually has the newest nail colors so I like to go in there to see what’s new.  It’s crazy, I know, but I can’t help what I like to do. Lol…Anywhoo, I was in CVS one night and I came across Revlon’s Enamor. Because it was kind of expensive, I decided to wait on buying it because I knew I could find it for cheaper somewhere else.

After my run Sunday morning, I went to Ulta and they were having a sale on Revlon products (jackpot!), buy one get one 50% off. So I decided to pick up Enamor and Passionate Pink (which I swatched the other day and didn’t like).

Enamor is a part of Revlon’s new Brilliant Strength line and is the perfect bubble gum pink! I would say that it is comparable to Zoya’s Sweet so if you have that one you don’t really need to purchase this one. The formula is a little thin at first (very streaky), but in this swatch I used two coats and that was more than enough. The brush is interesting..It’s flat and squared at the tip, which makes it easier to paint your nails, provided that you have big nail beds like me. For those of you with smaller fingers/nail beds, you may find that the brush is a little big. Overall I think this nail polish is well worth the $6 I paid for it, and I will definitely be wearing it again.

Have you all tried this Brilliant Strength line from Revlon yet? It’s supposed to be a base coat, nail color, and top coat all in one. However, because I am super impatient, I can’t roll without a fast drying top coat, but I suppose the concept is a nice one. Lol…

What are your favorite drug store nail polish brands? I would have to say Revlon, Essie, and Sally Hansen are my favorites. And how do you all feel about bubble gum pink nails in the summer? Or pink nails, period?

As always, I hope you all enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon! xx

Go Green: Essie’s First Timer

I must apologize to you all for my lack of nail polish swatches lately. I haven’t done a nail post in a while because a few of my nails on my left hand (my swatch hand) had broken and I had to cut all of them down. I like my nails short, but not quite this short. Lol…I’ve also been slacking on my Biotin vitamins so my nails aren’t growing as fast as they normally do.

Anywhoo…Greens aren’t always on my wish list for nail polish, but Essie’s First Timer caught my eye recently and I had to try it out. What I love about this green is that it’s bright without being too loud. It’s an eye catching color but isn’t neon. Loves it!

The formula was amazing as well. I am wearing two coats in these pictures (no top coat), but I easily could have gotten away with one coat.  There was a tiny bit of streakiness with the first coat but it was barely noticeable due to the opacity of the color. If you like green polishes, you will love this one as well. What do you all think of this color? Is it, or any of the other colors from Essie’s 2013 Resort Collection, on your wish list?

I didn’t buy all the colors from this collection, but I am smitten with In The Cab-ana as well, which will be my next nail polish swatch. Do any of you have that one? Are there any other nail polish collections you all are obsessed with? You know I am always on the prowl for something new!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! xx
