OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue Swatches

This is such an awesome color. It's really hard to capture in photos how nice it really is but I took a shot at it! lol. The accent nail was done using the snowflake from my Shany (Bundle Monster) plates (BM 14) and Pure Ice A List polish. The accent nail is also topped with Confetti Ice Ice Baby. I'm not sure if you can really see it in the pic but it looks really nice on top of it. I'm also a lot more pale in real life than the photos show, and this color really stood out against my skin so I'd really recommend it for pale people.

I'm so glad I picked this up before my OPI boycott! lol (Click here to read about how Coty bought OPI and why I am boycotting future purchases.) I still have a few more untried OPIs to swatch though so you'll see a few more soon.

Amazing Stamping Plate Deal

I just wanted to share this stamping plate deal. They are by a company called Shany but they are actually exactly the same as the Bundle Monster Plates. I ordered these for myself and I absolutely LOVE them. You get 25 plates for $13.95!! If you have Amazon Prime, shipping is free too! Check them out before they are gone!

Also, check out my new blog A Beautiful Deal. It will feature beauty related sales, deals, coupon codes and whatever else I can dig up!

Revlon Perplex Swatches

Finding this nail polish was a pain in the rear. I was looking for the special display and never found it. One day I went to CVS to see if they got it in yet and still did not see the display. I decided to check out the regular Revlon nail polish section just to pick out a few colors. While I was browsing, I noticed a color that looked suspiciously similar to Perplex. It was in the slot labeled Pearl something so I almost passed it over. Something told me to look at it though so I picked it up and lo and behold, it was Perplex! lol. Tricky! Anyway, on to the pics!

With Flash (washed out but you can see the purple shimmer it has in it)

I like the color a lot and it was nice to apply. I did find this chipped really quickly though. I had a small chip on the first night. This normally doesn't happen to me with Revlon so I'm hoping it has more to do with my application (I rushed) than with the polish formula. Overall, I like it and will probably wear it a lot this winter.
