a secret obsession with nail polish, exposed!

Review: China Glaze Eye Candy 3-D Glitter Winter 2011

|
By A Lacquered Affair · November 9, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Hey lovelies!

I was incredibly excited to collect a polish, 'fresh off the boat', yesterday. I had my eye on it ever since I saw it on All Lacquered Up's blog on Cosmoprof in August. What can I say, I'm a sucker for glitters and all things sparkly (only when it comes to nails). I missed the boat when China Glaze released their 50 glitter polishes. I wasn't into nails then. So when I saw the sneak previews of Eye Candy 3-D Glitter Winter Collection, I counted down the days.

It's finally released in the US, and somehow, my trusty polish spree organiser had her hands on them yesterday afternoon, and immediately contacted me. Out of the six, I was drawn to Some Like It Haute (I LOVE cosmic-looking effects). And I swatched it that very night:

China Glaze Some Like It HauteChina Glaze's Some Like It Haute, under indoor light (left nail with China Glaze's Matte Magic)

Described by China Glaze as a "graphite gray with holographic glitter", this collection of 6 glittery concoctions is inspired by Marilyn Monroe. I was expecting a darker base colour, but I guess this colour is unique too. The glitter effect was not as eye-popping as described and anticipated. I cannot see a vast difference between this glitter effect versus other popular glitter shades (eg. OPI's Teenage Dream). There are large chunks of glitter amongst finer ones, but nothing out of the ordinary.

This was 2 coats of gritty glittery polish. Some VNL may be seen under very close inspection, but I consider it to be pretty good for a glitter polish. The nail on the left was coated with a layer of China Glaze's Matte Magic, though there is very little difference between the two. The right nail is without base or top coat. Some shine can be seen, but that shine fades overnight. It didn't smudge or chip or have any imprints while I went about my regular routine (10 mins after application), which is probably the case with most glitter polishes.

Here's more 'eye-candy':

China Glaze's Some Like It Haute, under natural light

Verdict:
It isn't a polish to die for. It pains me to admit, but I'm a little disappointed with the effect. I'm not too sure about the other shades. Maybe some of them might be more impressive than Some Like It Haute. The only other 2 I'm slightly drawn to are Blonde Bombshell and Lorelei's Tiara. Should I budge and give another shade a shot?

Word of Caution:
If you don't fancy long glitter strips in your manicure, you might want to shy away from Marry A Millionaire, the amethyst one.

Can't wait for the festive season to go crazy on the manicures! Till next time, toodles!

NOTD: Oktoberfest!

|
By A Lacquered Affair · October 8, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

It's the time of the year where Germans gather for a beer-indulging festival. Working in an environment which deals with Germans, I was in the mood to do an Oktoberfest-inspired nail. The first thing that came to mind was a frothy beer. I whipped out a gold polish (more like Daiso's 3D Nail Art tube (from Sept's Haul) and OPI's Alpine Snow. Easy-peasy right?

3D Nail Art Pen from Daiso

The thumb was nyeh cos it was my first attempt. As I finished the index finger, it started to look messy and weird as a whole. It felt too overwhelming to have 'beer' on every nail (ironic to Oktoberfest, when it's pretty much beer everyday). So on to plan B...

I removed all the polish, and painted most of my nails in OPI's Upfront and Personal. It's a light, kinda sheer champagne, with loads of sparkles. Could be micro glitter, but definitely nothing chunky. I bought it on impulse a few months ago and without knowing if it complements my skin tone. But I guess it turned out alright.

The 'beer' went on the ring fingers only; Daiso's 3D Nail Art Pen in Gold, with OPI's Alpine Snow dripping froth towards the cuticles. And as always, Seche Vite to finish the manicure. And here's the final look:

I shared the photo with a friend (another nail polish addict), and she could immediately identify them as champagne and beer. Mission accomplished!

Till next time, Prost!

Speed Post

I've been neglecting this blog for a really long time. Extremely tied up with work; early mornings, late nights. And I've also been attending a couple of jewellery-making workshops, for the fun of it.

As the title states, this is going to be a super speedy post, just updating my NOTD. This was from the week before last:

 

Trying out China Glaze's Below Deck, and accent nail with Essie's Mink Muffs, topped with China Glaze's CG In The City at the tip. Love the greyish colour with a hint of purple.

Last week's (and current) NOTD:

Dusty glittery/ sparkly pink tip by Skin Food, Pedicure Sparkle #9 Sparkling Red (made in Korea). I bought it on a whim last month, and wasn't sure if I would like this colour/ texture on me. But it was incredibly sparkly, like having pink tin foil on my tips! It is densely filled with ultra reflective micro glitter, nothing like I've ever seen in "Made in USA" polish brands (so far). This is the description on Skin Food's website:

"Glamourous and vibrant, it is enhanced with diamond sparkling pearls to create sparkling finishes with just single applications. Perks up dull toenails with vitamins and keratin for nourishment and moisture. Also prevents colour stains on toenails."

But I like wearing it on my hands though. I might just go grab a few more other colours from Skin Food (at SGD 7.90 each).

While researching on their polishes, I read that some of their nail polish lines content cancer-causing ingredients. But this Pedicure Sparkle line ain't one of them (phew). Read more here.

One more for the road:

The entire nail was then topped with inm's Out The Door Northern Light Hologram Top Coat (one of my September hauls). I completely understand that the hologram/ sparkles don't show up well on bare nails, but as a top coat (as it claims to be), it is horrid! After 20mins of drying time, a nail touched a smooth surface by accident, and the top coat, along with the sparkle polish, came off!! Horror!

Had to redo the nail, and top off all my nails off with my trusty Seche Vite. Very disappointing. But will try to use it for its holographic effect on nail colours.

Despite the busy schedule, September has been a month of some major nail polish/art/care hauls. Will compile them all in a future post.

Till then, toodles!

Uncovering More Nail Supplies Retailers + ♥butter LONDON♥ In NYFW

By A Lacquered Affair · September 13, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

In my last post, I mentioned some local retailers stocking famous nail polish brands. I'm constantly on a lookout, not only for price comparison, but also for the variety they carry (and more importantly, if they are authentic).

Last week, I spotted a couple while shopping around nex Mall. nex is one of the largest malls in Singapore, and the largest in the northeastern area (and with a cinema too, finally!). The first is located on level 4, unit 04-10; Ministry of Cube. This Japanese-borne retail concept has been sprouting in Singapore for a couple of years now, and Ministry of Cube is one of them. Basically, the store rents out cube box space to individuals who wants to showcase and sell their unique/ popular products, often not seen in the mainstream market. The store manages the transactions, store operations and takes rental fees and a cut from the sales.

2 of the vendors showcase nail polishes ranging from OPI, China Glaze, Essie and even soak-off gel polish Artistic Colour Gloss. Here are some snapshots. Tried to include the price signs where possible, cos I'm terrible at remembering.

OPIsOne of the OPI vendors

EssieAn Essie vendor, also stocks OPI (not photographed)

EssieEssie stocks, upclose

Artistic Colour GlossArtistic Colour Gloss, soak-off gel polish

With OPI going for SGD14.90 each, I consider it to be mid-price (the lowest I've found were SGD 9.00, and the highest at SGD 23.55, at department stores, of course). Same for Essie, which were going for SGD 12.90, but better discounts if you purchase more.

The other retailer was located 5 floors down - DIY Beauty House (aptly named) at unit B2-19. I chanced upon it as I was making my way to the newly relocated bus interchange.

DIY Beauty House

They carry all your beauty supply needs for home beauty treatments/ styling etc, nail supplies included. There were non-branded and branded supplies including nail files, buffers, glass files, clippers, acrylic nails, swatch wheels, nail glues, cuticle pushers, UV lamps, nail dryers...I'm not even halfway there.

Nail Tools & SuppliesUV Lamps & Nail Dryers (over-exposed shot, my bad)

More importantly, they stock OPI, China Glaze(mostly Crackle), Poshe treatments and Harmony Gelish (might have some other nail treatments, but my memory fails me). The variety is pretty limited, but I'm surprised they stock China Glaze's Meteor Shower from the Glitter collection. It was on my wishlist, but seeing it in real life, it doesn't quite appeal to me now. Now I'm just on the hunt for Cosmic.

Their OPIs are a tad pricier than their level 4 neighbour, at SGD 16 a pop. But it gets cheaper when you get 3 bottles. Swatches are available, so that's always helpful.

2 racks of OPIs, one more not in the frame

</span>

So, North-easterners now have an offline avenue to shop for quality nail supplies!

Since I'm putting up this post, might as well share my Nail of The Day (week, rather):

If your sharp eyes are wondering, the faint circles are failed attempts at Konad-ing.

OPI Teenage Dream's subtle gradient over Not Like The Movies, both from the Katy Perry collection. I used to think that this collection was too loud and bright for my taste, but...what can I say, girls are fickle.

Not Like The Movies is a spectacular shimmery duochrome (more like triple) colour that shifts from purple to steel grey to seaweed green at the slightest movement of one's fingers. It's pretty sheer though, and applies rather streaky. I used 2 coats.

Teenage Dream is, well, perfect. It's a brilliant glittery, sparkly pink in a clear base that commands instant attraction to one's nails.

Together, they give a underwater, coral reef sorta feel, IMO. No?

I'm anticipating a couple of online hauls to come in this week. One's a mix of China Glaze (repeat colour, which I ordered by mistake), OPI Tickle My France-y and Poshe Top Coat. The other's butter LONDON, which I scored through Singsale. Their Creative Director, Nonie Creme, is hard at work at the New York Fashion Week, Spring/ Summer 2012 as I blog. Lurve her style!

Might post the hauls later this week, after I crawl out of another Smoochiezz flea. That's right! They are having another flea. This time at The Cathay, Level 1 atrium, 16 September 2011, from 11am to 10pm. I am sooo broke this month =(

Later, ladies!

NOTD: China Glaze Threesome + New Inspiration

Ok, a really quick post on my Nail of the Day (ok, week):

A sea-spiration combo of China Glaze's Re-fresh Mint, For Audrey and Fairy Dust (which I seem to turn to a lot these days).

And I've been recently introduced to my new nail art Goddesstartofraises1. She hails from France, but (most of) her YouTube tutorials include English subtitles. And in any case, French just sounds so ooh la la!

Check out some of her fascinating tutorials. She makes nail art seem oh-so easy:

Mini Haul & CG In The City Swatch

|
By A Lacquered Affair · August 28, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

YAY-ness!! I got my camera back from the service centre, and it's all systems go! The photos in the previous few posts were taken with my iPhone 3GS, and were lacklustre because that phone tends to produce grainy quality, especially where in poor lighting.

Back to business.

I headed to Smoochiezz's showroom in Toh Guan Road last Saturday, 20th August, to research what was available, the prices and what I will need to order online through sprees. I also wanted to check out the newest collections from OPI and China Glaze, which was announced to be in; Touring America and Metro Collection. It was a hassle to get there, considering that I live on the other side of Singapore. All in the name of nail polishes. It is located in an industrial building, within an industrial estate, where only 1 bus plies. Girls, please go with company.

The showroom is pretty small, considering the number of brands and variety they stock. But lo and behold...

This is just half of China Glaze's racks.

There are 2 more of such racks housing more OPIs. As you can see, many are out of stock. Essies are to the right, on 3 or 4 stands.

Polish Galore!!! Racks and racks of nail polishes to the floor, and rows of China Glaze. They have an amazing range of Essie too (376 in all, according to their website), but I didn't manage to photograph. (small disclaimer: if photography is not allowed within the premise, I sincerely apologise. But I could not resist, it's a girl's dream boudoir) WHERE DO I BEGIN!!

The China Glaze section was clear at the time, so that was my first stop. My game plan was to only look for the colours in my wish list, but that only worked for so long. I was so spoilt for choice! So many colours I've never heard of before (on YouTube). The bonus - the latest Metro Collection Fall 2011 is in stock! My lemming, CG In The City, was available for SGD 7.00! The swatch is coming right up on this post down below.

I also picked up Nova and Stellar from China Glaze's Glitter collection in 2009. I've read that this glitter collection was made up of 50 glittery shades & textures and I was lemming for a few. Nova was one of them, along with Meteor Shower, Cosmic, Preppy Pink and Bad Kitty. I found Nova, but Preppy Pink and Bad Kitty looked pre-adolescent and kinda bleh to me. Now Stellar caught my eye. It's a nude-y beige colour with fine silver and pale gold glitter. Perfect for when you're in the mood for a neutral colour, with hints of opulence. And it was the last bottle left on the shelf! SCORE!

I could NOT find Meteor Shower or Cosmic :( I may have to join a spree, but I'm still determining if it's worth the price and wait.

The next stop was OPI, and I immediately scoured the racks for Parlez-vous OPI and Tickle My France-y. I found that Smoochiezz arranges OPI polishes in alphabetical order, which is a great help. But somewhere along the way (or due to some inconsiderate customers), the order got jumbled up. In any case, they did not have them. *sigh* So I went through the OPI racks again to determine which colours I'd fancy. I kept seeing Teenage Dream all over the racks, and I was initially not inclined towards it, although it's been raved by many. But after a few more glances, and upon closer scrutiny, I decided it would look gorgeous over other polishes. And it is quite pretty. So that went into the basket.

4 glitter polishes so far, and no, it did not bother that it's 4 glitters too many. I also realised Teenage Dream and China Glaze Carnival Lights are SO similar. I snapped a quick shot of both in the showroom and actually contemplated which to get; OPI at SGD 10.00 or China Glaze at SGD 8.00? I preferred Teenage Dream in the end as it was a lighter shade of pink, and I already have China Glaze Pom Pom, a chunkier version of Carnival Lights.

OPI 's Teenage Dream & China Glaze's Carnival Lights - so similar in tone and glitter texture, though one a shade darker.

Continuing on, I saw many shades of nudes and pinks and Pinking Of You came to mind as I've heard a couple of YouTubers talking about them in their collection video; how it goes on opaque compared to most Soft Shades. Since it was in stock, I decided to give that a try. It's lighter than Shorts Story, but brighter than China Glaze Something Sweet, so I'm good with that.

The Essie racks were just beside OPI, and the selection was astonishing! I have never seen so many Essie colours all at once in a single display. They are all so pretty (probably cos of the bottle too), but I knew I wanted Borrowed & Blue, which I found for SGD 9.00. I was also attracted to Merino Cool, but I found it to be an exact shade as China Glaze's Below Deck, so I gave it a miss. "Only 1 Essie?" you may ask. Well, I have not gotten around to trying the Essies I already own, so I'm unsure of it's formula and durability (though I have heard many good reviews). I might build an Essie collection once I feel it's worth it.

During this haul, I realised so many colours are alike or even identical, between brands and *gasp* within the same brand. I'm thinking of building a comparison list of same/ similar polish colours, so I don't buy colours simply because I fancy them, only to come home and regret my purchase. And I might share the list here. Maybe... will see.

Smoochiezz also stocks nail treatments, top coats, base coats, removers, lotions, the works. Maybe for next the haul. While I was there, I also picked up an ELF Studio Blush Brush, since I didn't any make-up brushes (shocking?). Here's the overview of the mini nail polish haul:

Left to right: Teenage Dream, Pinking Of You, Borrowed & Blue, CG In The City, Nova, Stellar

I couldn't wait to swatch CG In The City the very next day and here it is (on left index finger nail):

It's a dusty greyish purple, kinda deep mauve glitter polish with silvery-goldish specks and a clear base. On it's own, it took 4 coats to get an almost opaque finish, and I don't recommend it. When applied as a top finish to solid colours, it overpowered them, but you could still see hints of the base polish. It worked best when layered over butter LONDON Marrow and OPI Black Onyx as you could see a dual effect. Over China Glaze Below Deck, it looked like a monotone opaque shade with glitter.

In any way, I love it and can't wait to wear it. The monsoon season is here, what with the cloudy and wet weather. It feels kinda like the equatorial version of fall. So that would be perfect to start bringing out the fall colours. Gonna dig them out right now.

Toodles!

NOTD and New Fave Polish for August

|
By A Lacquered Affair · August 15, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

I went window-shopping 2 Mondays ago and was looking at Revlon's counter at Metro in Compass Point. Mostly the same nail polish colours as your usual pharmacies and personal stores, but this bright red-stickered bottle stuck out, and it said "Scented". It's part of the scented range from last year's Spring/ Summer that had many YouTubers raving about (mainly for Gum Drop).

Well, this particular one is Peach Smoothie. It was not quite the scented novelty that drove me to buy it, but the colour; peachy nude with subtle gold-bronzy specks. Love! I have not seen this sort of colour by other nail polish brands, so I parted with SGD 12.90. And that's much more than what I normally pay for an OPI or Essie.

So today, I decided to try it on, and also stamp on Konad's lace image in white over it to get a vintage lace look. But the Konad part was a major FAIL! I had to go over the failed stamp art with one more coat, and China Glaze Fairy Dust (my go-to cover-up trick). Here's the line-up of products used:

Although it contains Toulene, I'm still loving Seche Vite. And here's my NOTD:

And what I'm loving the most now is the scent! Even after applying Fairy Dust and Seche Vite over it, I can still get a good whiff of Peach Smoothie when I sniff my nails. It's kinda like peach flavoured jelly beans, the ones from Candy Empire... if you know what I'm talking about. Mmm...delectable!

It applied rather streaky and a tad bit sheer on the first coat, but it was good to go with the second coat. So all's good as I never liked going beyond 2 coats. I'm bent on using it again, but just plain (or maybe I might attempt Konad-ing again).

I also bought Gum Drop on a whim last Saturday. I don't know if I'll regret it since I already have 2 other polishes in that exact colour; China Glaze Light As Air, and butter LONDON Muggins. Oh, and that bottle of Gum Drop I picked up was the only one on the shelf, and I have not seen it elsewhere in other stores too. Best part: I only paid SGD 0.90!! Ok, so I redeemed the points in my Watsons membership card to offset SGD 8.00, but I think it was cool deal.

(The printed nails were a @cutepolish-inspired nail art from last week).

I'm left with using my mobile phone to shoot all my photos since last week. My camera's lens decided to play punk on me so it's been sent for servicing. Gotta bear with the mediocre photo quality for a bit.

Off to bed now. Nite peeps!
