OPI Pure Laquer Nail Apps Review

I received a set of OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in my September Black Box. So I decided to give them a try. The directions say to place the strip on clean, dry nails, but the strips are not sticky enough to stick to dry nails. So I tried painting on some clear polish, than sticking the strip to the nail while the polish was still sticky. That worked to solve the sticking problem. So I waited till the polish drys than began the filing part to trim off the extra strip. But as i filed in a downward motion as the directions said but the strip began to shred. Which completely ruined the strip. So for me, this didn't work out

#VOTM (toes): OPI Blue Shatter over ESSIE Sunday Funday

     In my Blackbox this month, I received the OPI Blue Shatter. So I decided to give it a try. This is actually my first crackle polish, so I was a little apprehensive in the beginning. I wanted something bright as the color underneath, so I chose ESSIE Sunday Funday. I like the Blue Shatter, though it is not something I would pick out, it was fun to try.

#VOTM Nailtini MAI TAI

     Today in my IPSY bag I received a varnish by Nailtini in the color MAI TAI. Its a beautiful coral color. I decided to go ahead and try it out since I have never tryed Nailtini prior to this. I really like the formula. I used 2 coats plus Nutra Nail Nail Srengthener as a base and top coat.

July Nail Collection Box

     I received my July box from The Nail Collection and was so pleased with the colors. This month I received one China Glaze, two Essie, and one OPI.

     The China Glaze varnish came in the color 1219 Are You Jelly? from the Summer 2013 Sunsational collection. Its described as  a 'vivacious purple jelly', which is absolutly gorgeous.
     The Essie varnishes are from Essie's Resort 2013 Collection. I received  839 Sunday Funday which is described as a 'tangerine coral crush shimmer' and 837 Naughty Nautical which is described as a 'marine blue green shimmer'. Both are simply amazing.
     And lastly the OPI varnish I received is NL M56 A Definite Moust-Have from the  2013 Couture de Minnie Collection. This varnish is described as a fuchsia but to me it is more of a stunning bright pinky coral.

The Nail Collection 1st box

     I subscribed to The Nail Collection Subscription box last month and I got my first box today. I was so excited when it finally arrived. I had intended on filming an open box video, but my excitement got the best of me. I had my in-laws over for dinner when it arrived. So filming a video right than wasnt going to work out. But I couldn't have it in my possesion without opening it. Even my 2 year old daughter, Zan' Drea was excited to open it.
