I was looking at my polish collection, again and I noticed that these two polishes looked similar, and after swatching them next to each other I have to say I think the NYX and the OPI are very similar.
Being completely honest there isn't a difference between the two polishes. Both are flecked with the same toned particles and have the same base and finish.
I wore this polish for my wedding day, its so special. Exceptionally similar to Lippmann's Bad Romance, it has since been made in to a permanent line polish called Scandalous rather than Facets of Fuchsia.
Not only does Buy In Coins sell really great nail items, they also sell various other things. In the past I have bought an 'ePad' from them which actually meets my needs for under £50. I've also bought a couple of scarves from there too which were bargain-ious.
On to what I actually was supposed to be reviewing! Anyone would think I was being paid to say these things! Which I'm unfortunately not.
Its really quite cold in the north of England right now, gloves are a necessary! I ordered these ones as they were black and a £1. In the past I have been known to make my own arm warmers from stripy socks, but obviously these are a lot better as professionally finished.
Fully stretched out the arm warmer goes about three inches above my elbow
These are great for writing with while keeping your arms and most of your hand warm.
The material is the same feel and thickness as a standard sock. It's well made and serves its purpose well.
Nothing much else to say other than go for it if you like the look of them. Sometimes you take a risk when buying things without feeling them and seeing them first but this isn't one of these items.
I have reviewed these before, but I think its time I did a proper review
As you can see I have quite an extensive collection of eyes lips face nail polish
Chocolate Metal Madness
I have tried 41 of the polishes out of the current 78
Smoky Brown Pearl
The polish are of a good enough quality to be worn without a top coat, however the glitters do need one to help smooth out the finish, which is typical of a glitter finish
Around 98% of the polishes have lasted 2-3 days or more. Dark Navy in particular is the polish which chips so quickly, use a top coat though and that solves the problem
Red Velvet Rosy Raisin
Sometimes it seems as if the manufactures of ELF products don't have any quality control as you occasionally get a polish brush which is splayed and wonky. The UK ELF team do have great customer service though and will give you a replacement or a refund
Polish dries at a pretty standard rate and the black is great for stamping!
Mint Cream Purple Dream
The formula which they use is the big three free! Which is a fantastic thing!
"Bursting with the juice of pressed Blueberries and crushed Cranberries our fruity beauty is packed with antioxidants. Nourishing Peach Kernel oil and soothing Aloe will leave your skin refreshed and cleansed"
What do I think?
The scent is very berry like, as you would hope for with a product named very berry!
Texture of the masque was creamy which did dry out a little bit while wearing but not dry to the touch, very easy to remove
Claims of being refreshing isn't untrue but I wouldn't describe it as a wake up call where a lemon based product would. It did however perk up my skin which has been problematic recently
New sachet design makes opening nice and easy, especially for weaklings like myself!
Didn't leave my face dry and lives up to the claims made by Jeunesse. I actually think it did help to calm my skin down after its stress related break out. But that's what wedding's do to you!
Once my hair was dry from the bleaching, I went ahead and used Directions - Violet on the bleached part of my hair. This is semi permanent and its very conditioning so you can leave it on as long as you like. I left it for a couple of hours and this is how it turned out...
Basically its the bottom section of my hair, in a dip dyed sort of a fashion
