Nail of the day – OPI Meet me on the Star Ferry

Back to the usual Monday Manicure?  Today’s manicure will be OPI’s Meet me on the Star Ferry.  The colour of this nail polish is a very dreamy midnight purple with quite a bit of purple shimmer and maybe a hint of gold shimmer.  Application of this nail polish is smooth and does not appear streaky.  The nail polish comes with a standard brush and those little balls in the bottle to help mix up the polish.  Upon first application, the pigmentation is not too rich.  You can still see a little bit of the nail on the first application.  I really liked the colour of the first application.  Upon the 2nd application, the colour on the nail is still not as dark as in the bottle.  I actually prefer that it was not as dark as in the bottle but personally, I did not like how shimmery it was.  It did have a nice gloss and a metallic sheen after the 2nd application, without the top coat.

Picture time!

Conclusion:

I like the final gloss of this nail polish however, felt that the glitter/metallic sheen was a bit too much for my liking.  It still is a great nail polish to add some zing to a night outfit.

Price:

AUD $19.95 for 15ml.

Where to buy:

Most nail salons and David Jones.

What do you think of this nail polish?

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

HAPPY MONDAY!  hope you’re not suffering from massive “Monday-itis” today.

Lippy day today.. It’s the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait from my recent shopping haul.  Lip Butters were released quite some time ago but I only managed to get my hands on them recently.

This lipstick looks like lipgloss on the lips but it does not have the sticky feel of a lipgloss.  It was slightly moisturising to the lips and wore for at least 2 hours before a reapplication is needed.  The lipstick did not last after a meal and what was left was the gold shimmer.  The colour of this lipstick is pinky peachy with plenty of gold shimmer.  The colour is very natural on my lips with only the gloss and the shimmer showing.  The shimmer is not particularly over-the-top.  There was barely any pigmentation from the lipstick to my lips, which made it look more like a lipgloss.

Picture time!

Conclusion:

This lipstick is moiturising and has the look (and not the feel) of a lipgloss with plenty of shimmer to add some pa-zazz.  It is a great lipstick, however, for the price of almost $22 per lipstick, I personally feel that this lipstick is fairly overpriced.

Where to buy:

Most pharmacies, Coles, Woolworths (look around as some of them have special deals)

Price:

AUD$21.95 per lipstick (2.55g per lipstick)

Have you tried any of the Lip Butters?

Stay Beautiful!!
