The Devil Wears Polish Chromantic Review & Giveaway

press sampleGood morning everyone! 🙂 I hope you are having a a great weekend. It snowed on us again, and we’re only expecting more today. :/

Today I have for you The Devil Wears Polish Chromantic. Tami was going to have me include this in my All-Indie Radiant Orchid post, but for various reasons out of both our controls, that didn’t work out. But I have a pretty polish for you today – and a giveaway, so read through to the end!

Chromantic is TDWP’s version of Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year. The color shift on this is just absolutely gorgeous! This is 3 thin coats. For a bit of fun, I started off with AGO’s Matte-ict topcoat.

I then added AGO’s Magpie Shine for shiny prettiness.

Tami generously has provided a full-size of Chromantic for me to give away to one lucky winner! I know, you have to click through to the rafflecopter! But it’s worth it, I swear! Giveaway rules can be found when you click through, but basically you have to be over 18, and have U.S. shipping address.

All-Indie Radiant Orchid nail polishes

press sample

Good morning all! This is a post I’ve been working on for some time, and I’m excited to finally be able to share all these pretties with you! I reached out to a lot of different independent polish makers to see if they were making their own version of Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year. I’ve had a great response! (Some of these were provided to me as a press sample, and some I have purchased with my own money.) Hit after the collage for all the lovelies!

Sinful Colors Sham-Rockin Nail Polishes

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning everyone! I hope you are looking forward to the week. Did your team win or lose or do you not care one way or the other about the Super Bowl?

I have used OPI base coat and top coat with all these polishes. First up is Green Ocean. I’m showing 2 coats here over Snow Me White, Pistache, Exotic Green, and San Francisco. A flaky polish I actually like, will wonders never cease! 😉

Next is Pistache, shown is 2 coats. This was a crazy hard picture to take – either the photo was leaning way too neon or too dark. I finally had to stand at my front door with weak daylight shining on it to get a decent picture. This is exactly the color of pistachio pudding.

This is Call You Later, 2 coats over Snow Me White. I absolutely love this glitter topper and it definitely screams “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” to me.

Next is Exotic Green, 1 thin coat and then 1 thick coat. This is a squishy green. I think if it wasn’t so squishy (more of a cream), I’d like it better.

HD Nails is next, this is 2 thin coats. This leans just a bit too frosty for me to like, plus it is so sheer!

San Francisco is next, this is 1 thin and 1 thick coat. I know you spy that blue duochrome, but that doesn’t show up on the nails at all. I still really like this green though.

Lastly is Sin-Ammon, this is 1 thin and 1 thick coat. I was sure I was going to hate this, but I actually don’t.

My must-haves for this collection are definitely Green Ocean, Pistache, Call You Later, and San Francisco. Are you liking any of these polishes? I had picked these up at Walgreens, but if you have a Rite Aid, you might check there as well. Run to pick these up now before they disappear again (especially Green Ocean). Until tomorrow,

Verity Nail Lacquer Lilac Cream

Gift button2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood morning all! 🙂 I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. Instead of complaining about my hurt neck (again), I’m just going to just right into this beauty of a nail polish!

Lacey from My Boyfriend Hates Makeup loves the Radiant Orchid color as much as I do, and she sent me this polish that isn’t available here in Montana. Verity Nail Lacquer in Lilac Cream is the perfect hot Radiant Orchid color. It screams summer to me!
Verity Lilac Cream | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This is just a great cream polish – it applied easily and perfectly in two coats. Now I’m seriously bummed out because I can’t get this polish here!

What do you think of this color? I think I’ll be finding out where I can buy it online, because if the formula is this good across the board, I’m a huge fan! Until the next time,

Revlon Parfumerie Orange Blossom nail polish

gift buttonGood morning everyone! 🙂 It’s a gloriously beautiful Saturday here today, the birds are chirping and if you don’t look at the snow on the ground, you’d think it was spring. But alas, it’s still winter in Montana, so I expect this good weather to be gone soon. 😉

Today I have for you Revlon Parfumerie in Orange Blossom. This was a gift from Hannah at The Dalai Lama’s Nails.
Revlon Parfumerie Orange Blossom | Be Happy And Buy Polish

The scent on this is like spicy orange sauce, it really does smell like oranges but with a bit of a kick to it. I’m actually glad it isn’t a flowery orange, as I’d prefer a spicy smell to a flowery one. It isn’t a light smell, but again it’s not too strong either. The formula was great, this is 2 coats with OPI top coat (which doesn’t diminish the smell at all).

This is a really great orange creme polish. I’m not big on orange polish, but I’m really digging this one. What do you think of this color? Would you rock it, or is it a pass? Tomorrow is FingerFood’s Theme Buffet which is sparkles! Until then,

Revlon Parfumerie Tropical Rain nail polish

gift buttonGood morning everyone! I hope you’re having a great day so far. I stayed up late watching Doctor Who, and consequently my eyes have not wanted to work yet. 😛 But I have a pretty polish to show you, so let’s get to it.

Today’s polish is another that Hannah from The Dalai Lama’s Nails gifted me: Revlon Parfumerie Tropical Rain.
Revlon Parfumerie Tropical Rain | Be Happy And Buy Polish

The scent on this is a little like what “tropical rain” smells like to candle companies. LOL. It is stronger than the Powder Puff but not as strong as the African Tea Rose polish. The formula is a bit streaky, this is 3 thin coats. I just wish that the shimmer in the bottle was way more prevalent on the nail. 😦
Revlon Parfumerie Tropical Rain | Be Happy And Buy Polish

The blue is a really beautiful sky blue, but other than the scent, it really isn’t that special, so I wouldn’t worry about going out of your way to find this unless you want the full collection.

What are your thoughts about this polish? Is this one you’ll pick up, or is it a pass? I hope you have a great day, and until the next time,
