Schnapps Out Of It! OPI Nail Polish

 

OPI Nail POlish

Today, I’m going to do one more Dollar store review on the OPI Nail Polish I picked up recently. I’ve put a link here if you missed the previous post (full review).

I’ll be starting my holiday wish list soon and to warm up the holiday spirit, I’m jumping into a intermediary nail polish color first. A shade which is not to bright or bold red yet 😉

I had a drugstore brand OPI Nail Polish that I was in LOVE with. I bought this by eye for the color and it was perfect! The shade to review is this beautiful.  Schnapps Out Of It by OPI! 

For $3.00 at Dollar Store instead of $9.00 at a drugstore, I’m definitely loving the shade and the price lol! An epic deal, if you asked me.

This is a brown/peachy/rosy color that’s almost a creme finish, with just a tiny bit of pearliness to it. To me, it looks like a pretty Terracotta shade which I really like. Net wt: 0.5 fl oz in a staple glass OPI bottle. I feel that it applies easily and has good opacity. It goes completely opaque when it’s in 1-2 coats and it dried easily and is not streaky. The formula applies evenly and wears well which is a big plus if you are rough on your hands. It lasts about 4-5 days on me (since I’m very hard on my nails) so I was well pleased.

It’s a great color, but some might find it too mature or not the classic red for the Holiday but I want to try a warm up color for the season and “Just because …”. Glad to report in this review that I’ve been wearing OPI nail polish the past few times and everytime I wear it, I’m always reminded of how much I like this polish. 🙂

Up closed picture of the tip applicator. It picked up the formula nicely and I’m going to mention it again, easy to blend.

One coat of the nail polish and you can immediately see how opaque it was without top coat.

The color is very neutral and can be worn at the office and anywhere without screaming ” I’m wearing nail polish!!”… It’s a good option if one is tired of wearing red or nude. It literally goes with everything! I fully recommend this product. As for me, I’ll totally repurchase this OPI nail polish again!

Which color nail polish are you rocking this Holiday? I love to hear your comments below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Stay Beautiful!

First of all, I wasn’t even planning of getting any eyeliner pencils least the shimmery or glittery ones but the packaging just won me over. I’m a sucker for cute or unique packaging but that’s not it. The price of this Max Studio 5 Shimmer Eyeliner Pencils is a great steal let me tell ya.

Out of the five, my favorite are the Bronze and Black color eyeliners.

If you’re looking for a much better eyeliners out there for much cheaper, look no further. For $5.99, I don’t think other brands could bet it to that. It’s a good eyeliner pencils that works.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

Lash em liquid eyeliner

This Colour Strokes is available online at Lashem for $20.00 or beauty.com and through retailers such as Nordstrom, Walgreens, and Pharmasave (Canada). I got mine from Winners (Retail Chain Stores in Canada) for $7.99 half the original price in the store.

I really like the packaging. It has the luxe look for a high end brand eyeliner. Even though it’s not something I’d be whipping out of my purse, like a lippy, I can appreciate the uniqueness of this bottle eyeliner with really pretty ombre purple shades on the applicator.

I personally like the microfine brush. The applicator tip feels like felt material and easy for drawing lashline. But the good point stops here.

This Liquid Eyeliner is in the shade Black Pearl. My complaint is that it’s not absolutely Black color and this liner has glitter on the which I’m not so crazy about. The formula is too liquidy since it was infused with serum. I was fairly disappointed since I was expecting the formula to be much darker and smudge free.

It doesn’t last as long as it claims since after an hour, my eyes felt irritated and rubbing them erased off some of the color. My eyes are sensitive and I bought it because it claims to be ophthalmologist tested. Sadly, this Lashem eyeliner is a miss for me. If you have sensitive eyes, I would recommend you read the small print of ingredients before taking the plunge.

Overall, I’m not satisfied with this liquid eyeliner and I felt like returning it. But then, for hygienic reason I’ve to bite the bullet and just dump it in the trash. Well, you could say that it’s not so bad when I’m only paying $7.99 for it but when you’re paying almost $20.00 for it online, that can be a little bit more of a problem.
Seriously, if you own this or have the same experience like mine that you might want to share or comment, don’t forget to leave it down below.
Thanks so much for reading.
