Beauty Swellness: Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover for Glitter

Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover for Glitter

Have you ever skipped wearing glitter nail polish because it’s such a pain to remove? I know, total first-world beauty problems. But it is a pain, is it not? After a particularly stubborn, refused-to-budge glitter polish two years ago (I may have put on three heavy coats of it), I’ve pretty much steered clear of glitter; I swear it took longer to remove than watching an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians (or do those episodes just feel painfully long?).

But with the holidays here and needing a little bit of pretty cheer, I broke out some gold polish and glitter (Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Lo and Essie Top of the Rock) and then to remove it, I gave the Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover for Glitter ($11) a whirl. You dip your finger into the foam and it removes your polish and glitter — that’s what it promises.

And it does work pretty well. I found some of the big flecks of glitter of Top of the Rock more stubborn and I chose to remove the last bits with a cotton pad and remover instead (but the product might’ve come off had I dipped a little longer), but it definitely made the glitter-removing task way easier.

And so, I’m welcoming back glitter into my life! Glitter on.

Beauty Swellness: The Nail Report: Revlon Nail Enamel in Rich

Revlon in Rich

Nail craving: I’ve been in need of wee bit of sparkle as this polar vortex weather is beating me down.

How I satisfied that craving: New this year in the Revlon Nail Enamel Classic Collection is Rich; the glitter particles are small making it sparkle subtly. So it’s less preteen and more sophisticated.

How this nail polish makes me feel. Dub, rich. And gorgeous (and it reminded I have this little red book from Smythson to use!). The polish is actually very close to the Shellac Steel Gaze used in my shine-bright-like-a-diamond mani, except Rich has a touch more greeny-gold to it.

Love it or hate it: Love. I recently edited my nail polish collection and this earned a spot in my collection of 80 nail polishes. (Yes, 80).

Beauty Swellness: Revlon’s nail launches for early 2014

Revlon Urban with Matte topcoat

“So I’m thinking I want dark and matte,” I said to Leeanne Colley, Revlon Nail Expert, at yesterday’s Revlon media event.

“Urban is great,” she replied.

I swear Leeanne can read my mind — that is the exact shade I’d been leaning toward. She topped off Urban, a deep navy, with the Revlon matte topcoat, and I love the results.

Revlon launches 2014

Urban is not one of the new shades launching in January and February 2014, but there’s lots of great stuff coming out, from cool tools and metallics and glitters (that’s Rich and Chameleon above), along with a Nail Art Shiny Matte collection of five shades, and 10 shades of Revlon Nail Art Sun Candy (the fun bright shades totally have me craving the sun — must start planning a tropical getaway or two!)
