If You Love Me…

Remember when my nails were magical girls? (Maybe not literally, but still.) I promised that I’d go back and swatch the polish responsible for the transformation, Sinful Colors Let Me Go, over other colors to see how it looks. And now I have!

Sinful Colors Let’s Talk & China Glaze Liquid Leather.

With one coat of Let Me Go.

Sinful Colors Gorgeous & Sinful Colors Midnight Blue.

One coat of Let Me Go.

I wanted to see what it’d look like over warm colors as well. So here I chose Rainbow Honey Calabaza and Rainbow Honey Apple Peel.

I wouldn’t wear this combo for a manicure, but it does make me think that Let Me Go would look pretty cool over a nude. It’s a bit too brushstrokey to wear over something that contrasts with it too much, though.

What’s better than good nail polish? Good nail polish that’s cheap.

b.s.n. Nail Lacquer and Win Cosmetics are brands that I’m assuming are pretty obscure. I can only find a handful of reviews for b.s.n., but no websites that are selling it. And I’ll never know how popular Win Cosmetics is, since Googling “win cosmetics” will just bring you to a bunch of contests and drawings. But they’re cheap, and wear nice! The only complaint that I have is that they both smell like toxic death, much like Kleancolor. I’m sure both brands have got all those yucky chemicals that most people try to avoid, but I don’t mind.

You guys should know by now how obsessed I am with this shade of springy, minty, pistachio green! And b.s.n. did not disappoint—I have a bunch of brands’ renditions of this color, but this is by far my favorite.

This is three glorious, buttery coats of b.s.n. Nail Lacquer Meadow. I didn’t mind needing a third coat, since that’s pretty typical for this type of color.

It’s so perfect.

Here’s another color I’m quite fond of! This is Win Cosmetics 49. If memory serves me, this was two thick coats.

It dries completely smooth and shiny on its own, as do all the other Win Cosmetic colors I’ve used!

I consider b.s.n. and Win pretty synonymous. They’re both affordable, but surprisingly good quality. But I can’t find much information about either of them online! Have any of you guys tried them? What did you think?

My Anaconda Will Consider It

I’ve only tried a couple of colors from Nina Ultra Pro, but they have yet to disappoint!

The name for this one makes me giggle. Above is three thin coats of Nina Ultra Pro Anaconda Liked It. It’s a teal green that dries semi-matte. I actually quite liked how it looked without topcoat, so I left it as-is.

This needs a little layering to become opaque, but application was really smooth and it also dries remarkably fast. It reminded me of Lancome polishes—they dry quickly and are almost like a hard shell on top of the nail. I was impressed!

It dries a little darker on the nail than it looks in the bottle, but I didn’t particularly mind it. I don’t own any other cremes from this brand, but I’d like to see if they all dry like this—I’ll be so excited if they do.
