Piggy Polish Vincent's Stars

On my trip to California this past June, I took advantage of stopping at as many Rite Aids as I could. As many of you know Florida is deprived of Rite Aid. While I was at one I saw a Piggy Polish display with a pretty blue polish that caught my eye. This pretty blue polish also happened to be holo, so in the cart it went!

Vincent's Stars
 Vincent's Stars a denim subtle scattered holographic.

Color: I adore this shade of blue. This a medium denim blue jean blue. This is a very subtle holo. I am not a holo snob, and I actually like subtle holos. I love the pigmentation of the base color, and how it's accented with the holo.

Formula: Excellent formula. I needed only 2 coats.

Price: I paid around $7-$8 for this at Rite Aid. I have no idea if this still available in stores. Piggy Polish isn't really a brand you can find on the web either. I have done a search and seen some results in blog sales and on eBay.

Overall: I love Vincent's Stars. I love the pigmented denim base, and equally love the subtle holo effect. If you're a holo fan, you may be disappointed this doesn't pack a holo punch. Personally, I love it just the way it is!

Throwback Thursday: Sinful Colors Gogo Girl

You can never go wrong with a bright cherry red polish. What is even better is a bright cherry red polish that is $2. I have had this Sinful Colors polish in my collection since 2011, and it's been staple ever since. 

Gogo Girl
Gogo Girl is a bright true cherry red crelly.

Color: This is pretty self explanatory. If you're looking for that reto bright red creme, you need to look no further than Gogo Girl.

Formula: This has a nice 3 coat formula. I call this a crelly because it's not quite jelly and not quite a creme. It's a nice mix of the two. I love the finish of this polish.

Price: This is $1.99 at Walgreens. I'm *pretty* sure this is part of the permanent collection. I got this in 2011, but I've seen it around since. 

Overall: Gorgeous classic red color. The formula and finish are great, and the price is hard to beat!

KBShimmer Fall 2014 (5 of 10)

* I received the following products in exchange for my honest review. 

I have for you today some of the polishes from KBShimmer's fall collection. What I like about this collection is KBShimmer plays around with various fall trends from vampy to muted. She also adds some holo and glitter in some of the polishes for flair!

These polishes are available for purchase today on the KBShimmer website.

Hugs & Wishes
Hugs & Wishes is a muted light lavender creme. (2 coats)

Kiss & Spell over Hugs & Wishes
Kiss & Spell is a Halloween-themed glitter with a mix of yellow, black, orange, purple, and green glitters in varying shapes in a clear base. (2 coats)

A Raisin to Live
A Raisin to Live is a blackened ox blood jelly base with holographic glitters. (3 coats)

Leaf of Faith
Leaf of Faith is a cabaret red jelly with red, orange, and gold glitters. (3 coats)

Up & Cunning
Up & Cunning is a teal linear holographic.

Colors: I love the color variation in this collection. I only have 5 of the shades, so be sure to check out the others on KBShimmer's site. Fall is more than vampy shades, and KBShimmer offers vampy colors, jewel tones, and muted shades in this collection.

Formulas: The formulas on these were all good. I did find the creme and jelly glitters to be a bit on the thick side, but nothing difficult to deal with. I just prefer a thinner formula. I really loved the formulas on Up & Cunning and Kiss & Spell.

Price: All the shades I reviewed excluding Hugs & Wishes are $8.75. Hugs & Wishes is $7.50. These all can be purchased on the KBShimmer website.

Overall: I really enjoyed this selection of fall nail polishes. Like always, KBShimmer makes a little something for everyone in her collections. I did find a few of the formulas a little thicker than I prefer, but that didn't sour any of the polishes for me. My favorites of the bunch are Hugs & Wishes, Kiss & Spell, and Up & Cunning.
