Revlon Transforming Effects in Matte Pearl Glaze

 Revlon Transforming Effects in Matte Pearl Glaze
1 coat over red
 
Left: Original red mani      Right: one coat of Matte Pearl Glaze applied
 
Last week I was at Walgreens and saw a display with Revlon's Transforming Effects. Matte Pearl Glaze sparked my interest most out of the group, so I picked it up and yesterday's red mani seemed like a great base to try it over.
 
I LOVE it! It needed just one coat, and it dried super fast. This would be a great polish to have in your stash to re-fresh and change up a day or two-old mani.

OPI What's Your Point-settia? and 2014 Gwen Stafani Mini Holiday Stars set wrap-up

OPI What's Your Point-settia?
(2 coats)
 
Today I swatched the last shade in this set- What's Your Point-settia? and I loved it! It's a really pretty candy apple red. I love completing projects, so I am glad to finally have the 2014 Gwen Stafani Mini Holiday Stars set done. I think my favorite in the set was I Carol About You, but they are all pretty shades.

Here's a recap of the other three shades in the set. 
 
OPI Red Fingers and Mistletoes
(2 coats)
 
 
OPI I Carol About You
(3 coats)
 
Kiss Me- Or Elf!
(2 coats)

Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low

Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low (2 coats)
from the Winter 2014 collection

Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low (such a strange name!) is gorgeous- it's a silver/gold stunner. I was subbing this week and had a fourth grader tell me, "Wow! Your nails look really expensive!" :-)
 
Don't mind the reddish skin, it was below freezing most days this week with no sun, but the sun came out for a bit yesterday and I dashed out in 30 degrees to grab a pic. My fingers were frozen!
 
It's *almost* a one-coater, but a second coat evens it out perfectly. Love love love this one.

OPI I Carol About You

I Carol About You
(3 coats)
from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday collection
 
 I Carol About You is another shade featured in the Mini Holiday Stars set. It's a really pretty vibrant purple with a subtle reddish pink shimmer that's really only visible in direct sun. Two coats gave me pretty good coverage, but I noticed there were some spots that looked like they needed a third coat so I did add one more coat.

OPI Love is Hot and Coal

OPI Love is Hot and Coal
(2 coats)
from the 2014 Gwen Stefani Holiday collection
 
I'll always be a sucker for a good brown! Brown always seems to look good on my warm skintone. This was no exception- and I love the shimmer in it! It definitely needs 2 coats as the first is quite patchy, but the second evens it out nicely.

I first tried the Silver over black and ohmygosh I LOVE it!

 Here's a blurry pic so you can see what it looks like in the sun. LOVE!
 
It looks pretty cool in the shade too! The red and green glitter stand out a bit more.
