Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure – Kook-A-Mango

14 Jul

 

Hope everyone’s having a wonderful summer, because I certainly am! As you may know, I’m currently on a summer exchange program to Europe, and I am having a blast. The problem with traveling around several countries is that packing light is a necessity. As a result, I’ve only brought (gasp) two nail polishes with me. I’m already getting bored of them. It’s times like these that I wish I had this colour with me.

That is, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure’s Kook-A-Mango. A flat coral-orange creme. It leans towards orange in the above photo and in real life as well. There’s not so much red to speak of, and it’s not really pink either. It is a very wearable orange colour which would be perfect as a mani or pedi for lounging around on the beach (could’ve used this when I was in Barcelona…). Formula was decent. Opaque in two coats. I’m not a huge fan of the brush, but somehow I managed. I wanna wear this nooooow. :(

OPI – Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

7 Jul

OPI’s Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous┬áis from their Swiss Collection for Fall 2010. What a fabulous colour! A gorgeous charcoal (reminds me of pencil lead) polish chock full of foil shimmer. It glitters beautifully in the sunlight, but isn’t gritty to the touch at all, and removal is pretty easy too. At two coats, application gave me no troubles at all. Not sure what else to say about this. It’s quite a straightforward colour and not much to write home about. If you’re into gunmetal foil nail polishes, you’ll certainly love this!
