Hey guys!!
So Today I will have two posts for you. This one which is a polish comparison & the other is a Press Sample post showing swatching of Sally Hansens New Sequin Overcoat Collection. & In the collection contains the Sally Hansen polish featured in this post. So lets get started.

Sally Hansen - Cheery On Top

Sally Hansen - Cheery On Top is from Sally Hansens new Sequin Overcoat collection that launched this December 2013. It contains tiny purple circular glitters & medium blue, purple & pink glitters suspended in a clear base.
OPI - Polka.com
OPI - Polka.com
OPI - Polka.com is part of OPIs Euro Centrale Collection that launched earlier this year. This polish contains tiny purple & pink circular glitters & medium blue, purple & pink glitters suspended in a clear base.


Sorry about the terrible name editing on the cuticle, I accidently mixed up the names & had to switch them.
Overall Thoughts: 
They're pretty much the same except for Sally Hansen Cheery on Top doesn't have tiny pink glitters. Not an exact dupe but close enough for me. (=

OPI Gwen Stefani Collection PRESS RELEASE !

OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail 
lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the 
collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new 
semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special 
base coat. 

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the 
theme “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-
Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major 
influence in fashion. “With her expertise as a singer, songwriter and designer, who better to 
collaborate with than Gwen Stefani?” asks Weiss-Fischmann. “Known for her trademark red 
lips, bold eye makeup and nail art, Gwen uses beauty to accessorize her style.” 

Gwen’s signature red OPI hue – Over & Over A-Gwen – is available in a boxed set, 
which includes Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs in bar, square, 
diamond and circle shapes for creating unique nail designs, as well as nail glue for easy 
application. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and 4 in the Morning feature a new, semi-matte satin 
finish designed to be worn without top coat. Push and Shove, a bold chrome hue, is also worn 
without top coat but requires a special complimentary base coat – Lay Down that Base. One 
thin coat of Lay Down that Base topped with two thin coats of Push and Shove yields an 
intense, mirrored finish. The collection is rounded out with two glossy crème lacquers and one 
sparkly glitter shade: Hey Baby, I Sing in Color, and In True Stefani Fashion. 

“OPI wanted to create a collection as dramatic, diverse and glamorous as its namesake,” 
adds Weiss-Fischmann. “With crème and glitter hues, new satin matte texture, a mirrored 
chrome and SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS, Gwen Stefani by OPI presents the latest in pigments 
and finishes, while combining elements of haute couture and street fashion.”

Update

Hey guys,
I know it's been a long time, & some of you may know that I had something going on. Well I think it's time I share what's been happening & how it'll affect the blog. Anyways so heres what's going on I'm actually 5 months pregnant & will be moving Dec. 1st. So I have a lot of my plate. I have been packing & sorting through my home like crazy figuring out what we'll be taking with us, what we're gonna be donating & what we'll be throwing out. I am not sure exactly how long this blogging break will last, but I'm positive it won't be forever. Anyways I just wanted to let you know what was going on & why I have been absent.

So with all that being said here is a review for you (=

These were sent to my for reviewing purposes.
Elvira's Zombie
According to their website it says "Ylang Ylang and Red Poppies, grounded with Tobacco Leaves and Black Vanilla Bean, while taking flights of fancy with a frosty Methadone accord and powdery Coca Petals."
I have no clue what Tobacco Leaves smell like, but all that comes to mind is the smell of cigarettes. However this doesn't have a single hint of that so I am assuming thats not what actual tobacco leaves smell like. The main smells I can notice are the Ylang Ylang, & Black Vanilla Bean which I seriously adore.

Honestly I think I would have been put off by the description however the perfume itself once given a chance is amazing. For the 1.0 fl oz / 30 mL it costs $25.00

Piña Colada
 Now for the one my favourite. The Piña Colada description says " both light and dark rum, a dash of bitters and a little double cream. Demeter's Pina Colada is a luscious mixture of Cream of Coconut, Fresh Pineapple and Light Rum, blended to a perfect sweetness and richness." & HONESTLY they have it EXACTLY correct. It smells exactly like a Piña Colada. It's almost as if it's playing a trick on my nose! It's unbelievable realistic, as if someone was holding one under my nose.

Of course it's not very practical to a workplace, parent teacher meeting or school cause it smells so legitimate that people would think you were some sort of alcoholic or that you drank one before they spoke to you or something. It's that amazing. I love this smell so much, & I love wearing it, & I wish I could wear it everywhere & everyday but I don't really want anyone to try & surprise me with a intervention or something. 

For the 1.0 fl oz / 30 mL it costs $20.00

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Today I have a really fun PR sample post to share with you. It's on the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Collection. This collection features polishes that contain a rectangular shaped glitter called tinsel. So this collection is made up of eight different tinsel colour combinations. So here are five of the eight polishes. So according to the directions is says apply two coats however I applied 3 thin coats that way they'd be as even as possible.
Sally Hansen Tweedy
Sally Hansen Tweedy
 Tweedy is one of my favourite colour combinations, Black & White. Honestly I think that if they released this collection without this colour combination, I would have thought they were crazy. 

Sally Hansen Peach Fuzz
Sally Hansen Peach Fuzz
 Peach Fuzz. Lmao. I love the name that gave this. It's brilliant. I think this colour combination is perfect for spring & summer, it must be the yellow & light orange.

Sally Hansen Fuzz-Sea
Sally Hansen Fuzz-Sea
Fuzz-Sea. Ugh the witty names, gotta love them. So this has got to be one of the prettiest combinations, just the colour of blue with the green is awesome. 

Sally Hansen Wool Lite
Sally Hansen Wool Lite
Wool Lite is the only one in this collection that has one colour of tinsel. It's not light pink & white, it's just light pink. It's a beautiful pink, but took me by surprise that it wasn't mixed with a different colour.

Sally Hansen Tight Knit
Sally Hansen Tight Knit 
Tight Knit is a wonderful combination of a very vibrant blue mixed with white. I can't wait to used this for a Christmas manicure ! (=

OVERALL REVIEW
This collection is wonderful, however I don't think I'll be using them alone. I'll most likely layer them over a polish that looks similar to one of the colours (example, I'd layer Tight knit over a vivid blue or white) that way I wont have to layer the polish & It'll give me a more smooth manicure.

Do you own any of these? What are your thoughts?
