To start, I owe you all a huge ... THANK YOU! ... for helping me reach 200+ followers (203 to be exact). I'm so thankful for each and every reader, I get so excited by every comment, email and new follower I receive - it's like Christmas for me! Never hesitate to ask any questions or make a suggestion, I would love to hear from you. :)
In my last post I asked if you would rather see the second Revlon 3-pack polish kit or my Simple Pleasures kit from my Haul last week. A lovely follower and blogger, thenailaholic, requested the Simple Pleasures pack and so that is what I have prepared for you today. (There was a lot of swatching this afternoon!)
|The polishes included in the pack; un-named. They are swatched from L-R.|
|ACK, bare nails! This is two coats of the glitter polish. Clear base with small|
silver glitter, 2 coats. (I would use this as a layering glitter polish.)
|Beautiful orange/cantelope creme - 2 coats. |
The VNL that you see in these photo's was not visible IRL.
|I tried adjusting the colour for this polish however I couldn't get it spot on. |
It is more of a cherry red (creme) than what it is showing here, 2 coats.
|This reminds me of Color Club Pucci-licious which I wore the other day.|
This photographed more blue and brighter than it really is,
it is more of a muted medium true purple creme, 2 coats.
|Slightly less bright than this photo, but perfect otherwise. I will try to get a|
nice daylight shot of this and post it as an update. My favourite from this
pack. Medium cobalt creme, 2 coats.
|This polish reminds me of L.A Colors Atomic. I'll have to do a comparison soon.|
Medium teal creme, 2 coats.
I have to admit, I didn't have high expectations for these Simple Pleasures polishes, but I have to say I was blown away. I applied 2 coats for each of these polishes with no top coat to showcase the finish. The VNL was not visible IRL (macro shows everything...). They all dried quite shiny with the 2 coats, I was impressed. One thing I will say is that they have a very strange smell, not quite toxic but ... strange. Not sure how to describe it. Maybe, plastic-esque? Haha. Application was a dream.
Application: 10 - Perfect
Colour Range: 9 - Everyone will find something they like, but nothing highly unique.
Finish: 10 - Nice and shiny!
For $5.99 I will definitely pick up another Simple Pleasures kit if I ever find one at Winners again. If you have seen this pack and passed it by, I would recommend trying to find it, especially if you are trying to grow your collection on a budget.
I loved the blue shade so much that it is now my mani! Which is your favourite colour from the Simple Pleasures pack?
Thanks for reading!
