Blog Update and CoverGirl New Nail Shades
Hey everyone! Boy, let me tell you how much I've missed you guys! Well, to make a long story short, back in the spring I suffered from a lower back injury and pretty much everything came to a complete stop because it was so painful. The good news is, I am totally recovered and ready to get back to what I truly love.
Of course there is a HUGE drawback with being gone so long, my backlog of polishes "to be swatched" is never ending and it seriously makes me nauseous just thinking about it. Quite honestly, that is exactly why I took so long returning. But, I have to take the bull by the horns and stop procrastinating. So, on a temporary basis I will be swatching on a plastic nail wheel. I'm not exactly thrilled about this because I'm not a big fan of nail wheels, but it works for the time being.
Let's start with two new polishes from CoverGirl's Outlast Stay Brilliant line. When this small collection originally launched a couple months ago, I completely passed it up and didn't look back. The colors really didn’t capture my attention; certainly nothing ground breaking for the relaunch. But, that’s all about to change with the new additions for 2013. At Walgreens, I stumbled across several new shades that included Timeless Rubies and Midnight Magic - gorgeous shimmer flecks! Yes, finally!
Timeless Rubies - is a reddish pink glass flecked shimmer with a slight gold duochrome. I'd say it's more of deep rosy pink than ruby red. But then again, it also seems red in different lighting. It has that metallic foil-esque look like most glass flecked finishes do, and covers perfectly with only two coats. Definitely a winner!
Now if you've guessed Midnight Magic looks awfully familiar, then you hit the nail on the head! She has many friends that's very similar - OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Sinful Colors Winter Wonderland and Zoya Fei Fei. Not particularly unique, but it's such a fantastic color; I never get tired of seeing it!
CoverGirl Nail Gloss (.37 oz) retails around $4.99 and higher depending on the store. The new colors should be surfacing now or when the Spring 2013 cosmetic resets go into effect.
