Sally Hansen- Problem Child

Problem Child is part of this Tracy Reese fall collection. It reminded me of OPI Ink. Typical SH Salon Manicure quality. Two coats give you great coverage and shine.


Revlon Perplex - Chanel Paradoxal side by side

Here is a picture that I took when I bought Perplex. You can see that they are almost identical.


Sally Hansen Fedora + Bittersweet Konad M65

I stamped Konad M65 using Sally Hansen Bittersweet to yesterday's manicure. Bittersweet is pigmented enough to use for stamping.


Sally Hansen SM- Fedora

Fedora is part of the Sally Hansen Salon Manicures Tracy Reese 2010 Fall Collection. It is a natural beige with gold shimmer in it. I know some people don't like the chubby brushes of Sally Hansen Salon Manicures but I like them, it makes it easier for me to paint my nails. I also like the formula of these polishes, they are expensive but totally worth it. I try to buy them when they are buy one get one half off  at Walgreens or CVS.
Here is 2 coats of Fedora and Poshe. My Poshe is getting thicker, you can see it in my pinky:)


Lippmann- Happy Birthday vs Milani Gems

Last week, I went to Nordstrom in Corte Madera and while I was there I bought the Lippman set Layer Cake just because it had the infamous Happy Birthday polish in it and before I had a chance to try it I found Milani Gems in CVS. Gems is part of Milani Jewel FX collection which is said to be not a limited edition. I got lucky and I also found Revlon Perplex, the dupe for Chanel Paradoxal.
I put two coats of Lippmann HP on my index and middle finger and only one coat of Gems in my ring and pinky. Milani Gems is denser in terms of glitter andas you can see the colors are very close to each other. I saw that Gems is only missin pink glitter that Lippman has. Even though I love Lippmann, Milani is a much better choice. It is cheaper and easier to apply.
