Glam Polish Sealiest Thing I've Ever Heard

Glam Polish has been on my radar for a long time. Every collection that has been released looks like a stunner, but they knock out so many collections so often it's just hard to keep up. I'm very all or nothing. If I can't have them all, I don't want any. It's just too hard to make decisions.

I decided to force myself to make some decisions recently and pick up a few colors. I wanted everything in stock of course, but I could only have a few. I started out with the Under the Sea collection that was released in August to pick out my first few Glam Polishes, this is one of that lot.

Sealiest Thing I've Ever Heard
Sealiest Thing I've Ever Heard is a baby pink holo with purple glitters.

Collection: Glam Polish Under the Sea August 2015

Color: I took a gamble on this color. These pale pinks and purples can either be a hit or a miss on my skin tone. This one didn't clash too much though and I like it! I like the soft subtle color and the contrasting darker glitter. I have to be honest though, I am a bit let down. I feel like many of the photos I saw of this collection looked way more sparkly than the real life result. This is still an absolutely beautiful and top notch polish, but I was expecting it to knock my socks off. It's lovely, but it did not blow me away.

Formula: The formula on this was good and easy to use. I used 2 coats.

Price: This is $11.00 on the Glam Polish site.

Overall: I really do like the Sealiest Thing I've Ever Heard. I don't want my words to get misconstrued because this is definitely a gorgeous polish. I've just been oogling over this brand for so long and have been mesmerized by the beautiful swatches. I just think the sparkle factor in this is a little more subdued in real life than I expected. I would still recommend this brand, but definitely look at a handful of swatches before making your decision!

Sinful Colors High Spirits

I realized how out of touch I was with drugstore polishes recently when I went to Walgreens. I just haven't bothered looking at nail polish much lately because nothing really stood out to me. I did spot some of the Sinful Colors Halloween displays on a recent trip and a few caught my eye. This is one of the colors I picked up.

High Spirits
High Spirits is a rich plum creme.

Collection: Sinful Colors Halloween 2015

Color: I know purple cremes are not very original. I'm sure this is dupeable, but this is a color that I didn't have in my stash. I love this plum shade. It's not too dark at all, and definitely reads as purple on the nail. I love this color, it's perfect for fall or winter.

Formula: This formula was nice and easy to use. I used 2 coats.

Price: This was $1.99 at Walgreens.

Overall: All around great purple creme. I love the color. The formula is great. Sinful Colors is a great go-to brand to look for cremes that you may not have in your stash. They have a great range and at an awesome price. You can''t go wrong with this color.

Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 9/27/15-10/3/15

It's time for another Weekly Wax Wrap Up. If you missed my first post, check it out here. I didn't melt as much new stuff as last week, plus there was some crossover. I did do a fair a bit of melting though.

Mainstays Mulled Cider
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: I wish these had scent descriptions, but they don't. This has that perfect warm and cozy apple cider scent. The scent on this was strong, but didn't last very long. I think it lasted me about 4-6 hours tops, whereas other melts I can get a good 8-12 hours out of it. These melts are very small too. I used half the package in one go. The entire package is $0.93 cents a Walmart, so it's a cheap buy anyways. The quality though was great, but go ahead and buy 2 packages!

ScentSationals Zen
Scent Description: N/A
My Thoughts: This to me smells exactly like Bath & Body Works Stress Relief in Eucalyptus Spearmint. This is my go-to scent. If I don't know what to melt, I melt this one. It's a favorite for me and my boyfriend. The scent is very fresh, soothing, and hint on the masculine side. I always buy this in the Value Pack (12 melts) for this reason. I need to always have this one on hand. I get this at Walmart for around $3-$4, they have a regular size pack (6 melts) for $2. 

Ten Digit Creations Cranberry Citrus
Scent Description: cranberries, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and lemon-lime
My Thoughts: I love cranberry scents. I always gravitate them when I'm craving something fruity in fall or winter. This was very strong on the other citrus, orange in particular, when I first started melting it. The cranberry started to take the forefront a few hours in. I wish the cranberry notes were stronger in this one. Don't get me wrong this a great punchy and bright citrus scent that I love, but it feels a bit more summer to me than fall. This can be purchased on the TDC website

K's Kreations Blue Corn Moon
Scent Description: Notes of cider, fresh baked sweets, earthy fire, and creamy sugar corn pudding
My Thoughts: I like this scent, but I don't love it. It definitely fits for fall and it's a nice foodie scent for the season. I definitely detect the corn pudding. I feel like it's missing something though, like it could be a bit sweeter or brighter? I find that sometimes bakery scents get heavy, not as in strong, but as in they can get muddled and feel like they need freshning up. It's a nice scent overall, but it needed a bit more punch for me. You can purchase this one on the K's Kreations website

Ten Digit Creations Supernova
Scent Description: champagne cocktail of orange and cognac
My Thoughts: This is a Lush dupe. I haven't smelled the Lush version, but I L-O-V-E this scent. It smells like fancy hotel spa or bathroom products. It's soft refreshing citrus scent that is balanced with this soapiness. It is divine. It's a very pamper yourself and feel all lush and special scent. This is one of my favorite TDC scents for sure. You can purchase it here

That's all for this week! Until then!

Happy Sunday!

China Glaze Wood Ya Wanna?

Unfortunately, I've been overall unimpressed with mainstream fall offerings this year. In fact, I've been unimpressed with their offerings all year. Come on mainstreams! I know indies are where its at. I love them too, but I started out with mainstream polishes and I'd like to see them thrive too.

I did come across a polish that I really intrigued me from their recent fall collection. I have to say this one is probably a contender for one of my favorites this year. This is probably my only mainstream contender so far this year.....

Wood Ya Wanna? 
Wood Ya Wanna? is a burgundy brown metallic foil.

Collection: China Glaze The Great Outdoors Fall 2015

Color: I LOVE foil finishes. This is a beautiful fall foil. The color soft warm brown with some red/purple undertones to it and silvery foil flecks. This is just stunning. There is so much depth to this color. This reminds me of a fall sister polish to OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous which is a pewter silvery foil. I always wear OPI Lucerne on my toes in winter, and I'm now wearing Wood Ya Wanna on my toes now for fall. Awesome fall pedi color!

Formula: Perfect formula. Foil finished tend to have very opaque formulas and this one definitely does. I only needed one coat!

Price: This can be found at Sally's or Ulta for $7.50.

Overall: I am in love with this polish. It's a brown shade like I mentioned earlier this week I've been into. Also, it's a foil finish. Lots of favorite things going on for me in Wood Ya Wanna? This is spectacular nail polish and in my opinion a must have!
