Nfu Oh #61 vs Glitter Gal Turbulence


There's not much to say when it comes to the fact that I finally got Nfu Oh's #61. I.... well yelped with excitement when the box arrived because it took well over a year to finally get my hands on 2 bottles of this. One for me, and one for you guys!
As I mention in the video, the search for the perfect silver holo polish has been my mission for such a long time now that it's like I'm in the Sims 2 and I finally reached a Lifetime Achievement. Not to be super nerdy about it or anything.
Nfu Oh's 61 has pretty much been the blogging world's go to silver holo to compare to so again, I'm stoked to have finally gotten my hands on it.
Without further ado, here are swatches and comparisons to Glitter Gal's Turbulence, which is their silver holo, and is gorgeous in itself.

Summer Fashion: Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Clutch

It's rare that I do a fashion or accessory post but I think I'm going to do them more now.
I recently got the Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac Clutch off of StefaniBags and am LOVING IT in this warm summer weather. It's the perfect color for the next couple of months and it really is the perfect size as well.
The Mini Mac Clutch has a detachable cross body chain so you can actually use it as a clutch, instead of a small purse. I totally intend on using it as a purse though. 
It's about 8 inchess tall, 11 inches long and 2 inches wide. It holds quite a bit for a smaller purse. I love how easy it is to spot because it's a neon yellow. This comes in a ton of different colors too.
I've seen these on Nordstrom, Endless.com and a lot of different sites, but I ended up purchasing it from Stefani Bags, which has a lot of accessories for a good price. They also have a point system if you join and that can bring you lots of discounts.
Shipping was decent especially since they were shipping from New Jersey. It got to my house within 4 business days.
I like accessories so I've been switching everything out to my summer stuff. I may do more posts like this since I get a lot of questions in emails about what I like to wear and such.

OPI The Amazing Spider-man Collection Swatches

OPI just released a collection in collaboration with the new Spiderman film that will be released this summer. First of all, I died. Just died all over the place. I'm a geek. I wet myself during the 2 times I've seen the Avengers so far. I'm in love with Batman, I identify with Catwoman. So a new Spiderman movie not only had me a tither but an OPI collection along with it? JUST DIED.
THEN I SAW THE PROMO PICS. There were 2 Chanel look-a-likes AND a new Shatter that wasn't a creme finish. The other polishes were based off of Spiderman (and I didn't get them). 
So yeah, already this collection was a winner for me.
I bought 3 of the 7 polishes available, the 2 Chanel possible-dupes and the Shatter.
These are available now, and can be purchased at Ulta, Pure Beauty, Trade Secret, and salons and beauty supply stores. I bought mine on AveYou.com. They retail for between $8 and $9.
Swatches after the jump!

Pa Nail Polish Swatches! A20, A72, A134, AA53

I've got some new Pa swatches today :) As I said in the video, I always have to go pick up more whenever I go to San Jose or San Francisco. I love this brand and they've yet to let me down with their colors and their finishes.
The colors I got this time around are very summery and ocean-y. It wasn't supposed to be like this but hey, I guess I just had summer on the mind.
Pa Polishes can be purchased at the Japanese market in San Jose (well I think it's officially in Saratoga) and in San Francisco, in Japan Town, next to the crepe stand that puts cereal in their crepes. On the side of the mall with the Sanrio store lol. I don't know what the store is called, but it's an uber girly, accessory store. It's next to the fake Samurai sword store.
These polishes retail between $4.99 and $5.99, and you can actually find them online in some places, but I don't know exactly where.
Swatches are after the jump!

NOTW: A-England Princess Sabra (Tristam's Eyes)

Time to catch up on my NOTW posts again! First one I have for you is an A-England polish by the name of Princess Sabra (Tristam's Eyes). I first heard of A-England on Scrangie's site, like most of the things I purchase, nail related, then Radha started to RAVE about them so I knew I really had to pick some of them up.
There are two collections, the Legends and the Mythicals. This polish comes from The Legends collection, which is all scattered holo polishes:
Indoors, with flash
The base color is very much a cat's eye green. It shifts from pale, gray green, to bright gold, to a mix of green gold. It has a bright holo when in direct light - so with a flash or in the sunlight.
Indoors is when the gray comes out.
Indoors, natural light / Outdoors, sunlight
Outdoors, flash
Formula was awesome for it - opaque in 2 coats and went on the nail like butter. I used Nubar's base coat and Seche Vite on top. This manicure lasted on my nails for a week with no chipping at all.
A-England polishes can be bought online at their website and on Llarowe.
