Hello blogging world, meet my new favorite dark red. This color Wine to Five by CoverGirl is absolutely divine. I’ve been nothing but impressed with these polishes. The formula is a dream. It’s creamy, opaque and so gorgeous. This could easily be a one coater but I did two just to be safe. The color makes my nails look like I just got a gel manicure. And who doesn’t like that?! Every time I use of these CoverGirl polishes I think to myself: I really have to pick up more of these colors!

Manicure Monday: Shake Your Groove Thing

Today’s nails are a fun mix I’ve been wanting to try for a loooong time. I bought this Deborah Lippman gold glitter polish (Shake Your Groove Thing) quite a while ago at Nordstrom and I’m so happy I did because I absolutely love it. At $18 a pop they’re not cheap (and the most expensive nail polish I own) but I had to have this limited edition color. The glitter is so heavy, in a good way, so that you get a ton of pieces with just one coat. I find that most glitter polishes are sparse and require 12+ coats to achieve a similar look. I had mine done at 3 coats. The peach color is a Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant color appropriately called Peaches & Cream. I’ve only tried two of the colors from this line and I have to say I’ve been very impressed. They’re very pigmented! The other color I have is a bright purple which I’m actually wearing on my toes right now. I picked up one more color this past weekend from the Covergirl line and, big surprise, another Essie color… bringing my grand total of nail polishes to 115! Woo! I’m officially a nail polish hoarder. And maybe just a little proud of it. Maybe. Just a little. Ok, yeah, I’m pretty proud of my collection.
