This Week’s Wrap Up

Posted in Favorite Links, Weekly Wrap Up tagged , at 9:19 am by pretear

In the end, I couldn’t pick between Zoya – Yummy and OPI – Just Groovy. Surprisingly, both had excellent wear. I removed them after five days of wear with no chips or tip pull. (However, I’m starting to wonder whether it’s something that I’m doing differently to make my polish stay on for so long.) In any case, I love them both, so I decided to keep them even though they look exactly the same.

I now officially hate Zoya a little less, my love for OPI remains true.

Coming up next week:

+ A swatch review of the Color Club Flower Power Neon Collection, courtesy of Color Club.

+ A Rescue Beauty Lounge pic spam with swatches of Dead Calm, Recycle, Concrete Jungle, Stormy, and Purple Haze.
