I remember a long time ago there used to be Illamsqua polishes at SiJCP, but I guess I found at place that carried them. The last time I saw them, they were in a sales rack and on sale. Do you think there might be some sale Illas (yes I just abbreviated Illamsaqua) left? I really would like to get some new polishes after my no-buy and then send all my OPIs to the trade thread or to the friend who might want to buy my old ones.
I found only one review for this product on Sephora's website, and it wasn't good. Therefore, I was looking for additional feedback. I wanted to know how this product has worked out (e.g. is it long lasting). Also, is it really that different from regular matte nail polishes?
I clicked on the sale section to see there was finally over 100 items again! I was so excited. Most of the additions seem to be Nails, Inc. products, so if anyone is a big Nails, Inc. fan: ready, set, sale!
I am thinking about buying The System from Formula X because no matter what base and top coats I try, my nails always chip within 1 to 2 days. I have heard nothing but great reviews about The System, but every review I have seen talks about using it with the actual Formula X polishes. As someone who owns 400+ nail polishes, I would be using the base and top coats with other brands of polish 99% of the time, so I want to make sure that it works well with any brand before purchasing!
Sephora's little polishes @ $5 has a color called Think Big - i used to 2 coats and my trusty Dior Gel Coat - this color comes very close to Dior's Mohair that was dc'd despite a cult following - this polish has poor reviews - i am loving it - it comes in over 70 colors - great stocking stuffer and to try a wild color - enjoy!
I'm looking at Diamancel files in #1 Fine, or #2 Medium grit. I do NOT need a coarse grit file, I cut my nails and basically need them SLIGHTLY shaped, and smoothed. I'm worried that #1, which would be my leaning, will be ubersoft and won't work. I am not looking for a buffer with this purchase, I do need a file. For example/comparison: - I have a crystal nail file that is very fine grit and does nothing (hence needing to buy a new file). - Emery boards from the drugstore are WAY too gritty for me on the coarse side, and even the 'smooth' side is a little more gritty than I'd like. Or if you don't like Diamancel or recommend a different brand let me know.
If you missed out on any polish colors that sold out online or in store you might be able to pick them up tomorrow, Monday, on HauteLook. You have to sign up to buy at the site but might be worth a peek for that one color before they're gone for good. If anyone wants an invite linky shoot me a message but I don't think you NEED one to sign up.
Hi ladies! I hope you are all doing well. So a few days ago I was looking at some SpaRitual polishes on Sephora.com just to look at the reviews on them because I just picked up one of their polishes from TJ Maxx. I've heard about and seen the line every time I go to Sephora and I was really curious but skeptical about the brand. I later found out they are the sister brand of Orly and they are vegan so that made me feel better because I LOVE Orly polishes and I've been looking for more vegan brands. So I went to my local Sephora to see the colors they had and 3 looked awfully familiar to me. I thought to myself I'm pretty sure I've seen these before. So I went home and I Googled them. Lo and behold two are exact dupes and one a little bit darker dupe of three of the Orly Cosmic FX collection that came out for Fall 2010. I know that not everyone was not able to get their hands on the polishes they wanted from the collection so I thought I'd do some research so that you ladies, if you missed out could still get the dupes. Dupe #1. SpaRitual Meditate On This = Orly Lunar Eclipse Dupe #2. SpaRitual Off the Grid = Orly Halley's Comet, OPI Catch Me In Your Net, Julie G Mermaid's Tale (if you don't have a RiteAid where you live), Zoya Charla Dupe #3. SpaRitual Optical Illusion ( 2-3 shades darker) = Orly It's Not Rocket Science. If you ladies wanted to get your hands on the Orlys but couldn't, check out the SpaRitual ones! I'm planning on purchasing Meditate On This during the Chic Week sale.
