Revlon Autumn Spice

So I made a completely random stop by Rite Aid the other day, and FINALLY found the Parfumerie Collection from Revlon! I picked up a couple of shades, and this one screams pumpkinsautumnnutmeg...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
2 Coats Revlon Parfumerie Autumn Spice
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite

This is a GREAT shade for fall. Autumn Spice is a warm, rich, brown with glass flecks that flash gold and a little bit of pink. You get more of the pink flash in the bottle, but it is slightly noticeable at certain angles on my nails. There's a lot of richness, depth, and shimmer going on here.

And then there's the scent.

Each Revlon Parfumerie shade is scented. The names of the polish describe not just the color, but the scent packed in each of those adorable square bottles. I mean... just LOOK at them. I want a wall full of them in every color of the rainbow! (Revlon, can you hear me?!?)

Autumn Spice is actually just what you'd expect from a candle with the same name. There's pumpkin, nutmeg, and maybe a tiny dash of cinnamon mixed with a warm vanilla. Honestly, I was worried that the scent would be overpowering, but it's not at all. I'm scentsitive, (see what I did there?) so this was a pretty big gamble for me. There are sooooo many perfumes that give me headaches that it's not even funny. I got a migraine and almost threw up from a Hazelnut candle that was lit for under an hour. True story!

So yeah... I'm really digging this polish, and I'm eager to try the others I picked up. I'm even wondering if I can do a layering that will look awesome AND smell delicious. 'Cause I live on the edge and all that. :)

I haven't popped over to CVS to see if they have these in stock, but I'm hoping to get over there tomorrow. I have a few things I'm looking for, and then it's seriously time for an extended No-Buy. I'm thinking at least 2 months this time, if not more. (Wish me luck, I'll need it!!!)

Have you spotted any Revlon Parfumerie polishes?

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter. 

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
