OPI Infinite Shine Pretty Pink Perseveres

My last post was on OPI's shade named "she went on and on" and I knew given how much I loved that shade I wasn't done with this collection. The next shade that cotton my eye was "Pretty Pink Perseveres"
Absolutely love this shade. It's that perfect cotton candy shade...Perfect for spring and summer. This is highly dupable I would think but even though I have a large nail polish collection I really don't have anything like it. The picture doesn't really catch it but in certain lights this looks like a cool toned lilac pink and in certain lights it looks quite warm. I'm not sure on the wear time because I've only had it on for two days but love the color and love the formulation of these polishes.

Butter London Pink Knickers Polish swatches

Butter London recently released a brand new collection that is specifically target to provide a bit of extra shine to the nails. The line its Patent shine10X and it has some absolutely gorgeous shades. I, being a fan of glossy nails, was immediately drawn to this collection. The first shade I bought is Pink Knickers...not sure about the name but let's proceed with the color. The color is the most beautiful peachy pink shade I have ever seen...It's keen to Essie's famous Van D'Go but slightly lighter and just more opaque and shinier. It truly lives up to it's name of being shiny but most importantly the color represents summer...its the type of polish one wears to the beach, by the pool...perfect for summer. It's more peachy than pink but there is an ever so slight pink undertone.
As with a lot of these type of colors, two coats was absolutely  necessary to get it look opaque but I have to expect that of most lighter shades and honestly I prefer it as it gives a little bit of control over the application. This is a gorgeous shade and I highly recommend it for summer.

I always gravitate towards darker polishes winter time, but we recently went to the beach for a week and in anticipation for warmer weather I took a close look at my nail polish collection to find a bright orange red shade. Ciate Mistress fit the bill. What a gorgeous shade and a must have for spring and summer.  Ciate Mistress is such a cheerful cherry red orange shade and I found myself automatically smiling when I looked at my nails! It's truly a happy color.
For years OPI Cajun Shrimp has been my go to polish for a summer red. What I look for in a summer red polish is an orange red not a wine red or a "Christmas" red. Ciate Mistress is perfect and in a way I even prefer it to OPI's Cajun Shrimp because it has a brighter cherry undertone. The application is pretty good as well. I use two coats and as always Butter London Hardwear top coat (the only top coat I ever use) and it stayed chip free for a week. If you're looking for a bright spring and summer color thats as gorgeous and uplifting as a flower on a spring day, get this polish.

Chanel Vamp Polish

Chanel Vamp is the father of dark vampy polishes. When it first came out, it was one of the first vampy dark sexy polish in the market and it's since been reformulated by Chanel. I have two versions of this and this is the newest version. The older version I own is a cream maroon shade. The newest is a dark purple laced with gold shimmer which is so finely milled you can't see it on the nails but it gives that very shiny glossy look. Beautiful. 
The application is amazing. It goes opaque with two coats and it last for an entire week. Must have!
