Thursday Threes: Selections from CND Vinylux Open Road Spring 2014 Collection

Trying some of the Spring 2014 colours from Vinylux reminded me how much I really like this system.  I used it without a base coat, and it lasted for much longer than any of my other nail polishes have recently, so the system really does work!

How To Remove Glitter Nail Polish

I love glitter nail polish but it is notoriously difficult to remove, and the new “sand” or scuffed glitter versions are no better.

CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Review

Think the bottle looks familiar?  That’s because it does!  The new CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss bottles are reminiscent of Chanel’s but the formula inside could only be CoverGirl.  That’s because this polish is supposed to be so shiny and long-lasting that you don’t even need a top coat for it, and the vibrant […]
