Today for Makeup Wars we’re sharing our current favorite fall manicures. I have a confession, I’m a girl with
hundreds thousands of nail polishes, and I haven’t been wearing much. I’ve been busy running around like a crazy person and really haven’t even had time more than than a few manicures!
But, the ones that I’ve done have all been the same 2 polishes, which you can see here. I’ve mostly been wearing them separately, but they do work together!
I’m a big purple girl, and my favorite polishes right now are Nails Inc Bond Street and CoverGirl Violet Flicker.
The Bond Street is Gel Effect Polish. This polish is meant to be a little longer lasting with more shine than a usual manicure. I have noticed that I get a day or two of longer wear, though I’m not sure it is any shinier (my normal Seche Vite top coat is already really shiny). There’s also a plumping effect, which is apparently the extra layer effect that you’ll get on your nails with gel manicures.
The polish is very pigmented and I only need 2 thin coats, so I haven’t noticed much plumping. And I have to admit that I find the plumping to be a strange thing to be wanting. I really don’t like having such thick nails. It must just be me!
The CoverGirl Violet Flicker is from their new Hunger Games collection. I was lucky enough to see a mini-display at Meijer a few weeks ago right after it was put out, though already only these 2 colors were left. I’ve only seen empty displays since that time! This is a really pretty color in person, the picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s a very pretty purple with multi-color shimmer and glitter. I need 3 thin coats to get it opaque and due to the glitter it is hard to get off. I have to use the foil method for nail polish removal to get the glitter off of my nail.
What colors have you been wearing this fall?
