CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Wine to Five NOTD!

CoverGirl Wine to Five

CoverGirl Wine to Five

Hello my long lost blog! Some NOTD for you. I’ve still not found the perfect wine/burgundy shade but this one sure does come close. It is, however, somewhat of a shape shifter, you’ll see in the pics below.

CoverGirl Wine to Five has a great formula, and was almost opaque in one coat. If you had super steady hands, this would be a one coater for you! Dry time was good, and the finish is glossy and feels plastic-y, in a durable, resilient way. Only gripe is the somewhat unwieldy chunky square top, which I’m sure wouldn’t be a huge problem for some but I have some pretty angry carpal tunnels after painting a bunch of furniture, so gripping it was tricky.

In indoor light, this was a nice deep wine, with the right balance of red to purple. When taken outdoors (rainy and cloudy) it appeared more of a cherry red, and when taken with flash it went straight to a fuchsia pink! I don’t really mind, it keeps it interesting. Swatches!

March Minimalist NOTD!

Hi! March is here and the days are beautiful here in the Vancouver area in the middle of the day lately, although early mornings and nights are still frozen. Makes it hard to get dressed for the weather in the morning! I have no place complaining knowing what the rest of Canada is like right now, hope you guys are ok over there!

I managed to find a small scrap of time to do my nails this week, and even more astoundingly, find a second scrap of time to post it! These are some very minimalist nails with Cover Girl Constant Candy and one single simple dot of  OPI Black Onyx. It was inspired by a black polka dot ribbon off a perfume bottle, modeled below for extra polka-dotty effect!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
