NOTD: Bite the Bullet Wet n Wild & 4 Other Great Colors for Right Now!
Posted February 13, 2013on:
Wet n Wild “Mega Last” Bite the Bullet. I think this is a great color for right now. Not too dark but not so much like “spring”. Really, this is an everyday color, a taupe-y, purple-y neutral. I don’t know if this is new to the Mega Last collection, but this is a new color for my collection. The stores in my town carry a limited selection of Mega Last colors so when I saw this a few months ago, I happily purchased.
Bite the Bullet has the same great formula from the Mega Last line. Goes on smooth, no visible nail line, dries pretty quickly, no muss, no fuss. This is one I’m sure I’ll be wearing a lot in the coming months.
CHANEL Black Pearl. For me, Black Pearl is an everyday, anytime of year color. I think it is especially great this time of year. It has a great formula, coverage with 2 coats and I like the green cast that shows up in some lighting. Although Black Pearl is well, black, it has enough sheen and a bit of shimmer to give it interest, which for me is refreshing after the winter of dark colors. I think Black Pearl should be in everyone’s collection.
But of course, if you don’t want to spend $26 for a bottle of polish Revlon’s Black With Envy is a dead on dupe.
Cherries in the Snow by Revlon is another great color for this time of year. It is the perfect pink-red and another “staple” to anyone’s collection. Revlon also makes a Cherries in the Snow lipstick, which of course matches the polish perfectly.
OPI Casino Royale from the Skyfall collection. This is a great color for right now, I think it is a pretty maroon, not too dark but not too light. OPI has a great formula, great coverage, no visible nail line and wears great too! Yes, I said wears great, which for me is about 4 days, 5 tops. I like this color so much I have worn it a couple of times and for 4-5 days because it was too pretty to remove.
OPI is launching the Euro collection, and I hate to say it, but is it just me? Or are all of OPI’s “collections” pretty much the same colors, maybe tweaked a bit and new names? Seems to me like the Holland, Germany, Skyfall and now the Euro collections are the same. Note to OPI, when you add my name to your shit list, it’s Judi, with an I.
CHANEL Skyline. This is a Limited Edition color and may be hard to find. I have not found any dupes for it. It is a baby blue frost, typical CHANEL formula, but I’m used to it by now and have come to expect patience and 3 thin coats when applying. I’m seeing more and more these kind of “frosty” looking polishes and to me they seem a bit old fashioned. Isn’t that a funny thing for a Middle Aged Beauty Queen to say? But, they do seem a little bit from the 60′s. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the frosted polishes but I know I love Skyline. It is absolutely gorgeous and worth the $30 I spent for it. Although I haven’t found a dupe for Skyline I did find one that is close. From Wet n Wild, the 99 cent Wild Shine Rain Check. It is a bit darker than Skyline but it has the same frosted effect the CHANEL polish has. I love the Wild Shine’s from WnW. They are cheap and cheerful, just like me.
Those are 5 colors I think are great for right now.. Not too bright and not too dark. Like everyone else, I am looking forward to spring and all the brighter colors but for now, I’m happy with these choices. What are your favorites you’re wearing right now?
💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.
