Nail of the Day: China Glaze Kalahari Kiss

It’s been awhile since my last post, sorry about that! I’ve had some things going on in my personal life that made me not feel like blogging, but I’m back now! I decided to ease my way into things with a Nail of the Day post. Today’s nail polish is Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze. It is limited edition and came out with one of their fall lines. At this time, it is still available in stores.

In my opinion, this is a very unique shade. At first glance it might look like just another nude, but in different lights, it looks different. It tends to lean olive greeen or mustard yellow, I can’t decide which one more. The formula of this shade was very nice, not thick or thin. Sometimes I find China Glaze polishes to be slightly thick, but this one was perfect. The color was also relatively opaque and I used 2 coats. Overall, I do like the polish, but it is not my favorite. The shade is just a little strange. I do think it would make a great base for a gold or silver glitter top coat and it also is a nice fall nude.

What do you think of this shade? Do you have a go-to nude polish for fall?

Nail of the Day: Essie Mojito Madness

So, my recent green nail polish obsession led me to pick up Mojito Madness by Essie. The formula for this polish was nice and easy to work with; not too thick or thin. On the picture above, I used 2 coats and a base and top coat. The color went on pretty opaque. I’m not sure what I think about this shade on me. In person, the color looked a little lighter in the bottle. On the nails, this looks like a Starbucks green. I think that I kind of like the shade on me, but not really loving it.
What do you think? Have you tried Mojito Madness yet?

Nail of the Day: Revlon Dreamer

Today’s manicure features Revlon Dreamer as a base and Essie Set in Stones on top as an accent. Revlon Dreamer is a gorgeous pastel periwinkle color. When i purchased this shade last week, I was planning on getting Essie’s Lapis of Luxury, but i saw that this color was very similar and I decided to try it instead. Revlon runs for about $5 while Essie is about $8. This shade was slightly watery which made it messy to apply, but the color was opaque. The wear time is pretty good. I was able to keep it on 3 days without it chipping. 3 days is good for me because my work is hard on my hands.
I love the way this turned out. What do you think?
