OPI's Just Tea-Sing is a sure teaser



I love nude varnishes but it's rather difficult trying to find one that works for my nails. I have a tiny nail bed and long fingernails. The problem is that I hate seeing the white nails underneath the varnish. That's a problem I ran into with Just Tea-Sing. It's a beautiful milky, creamy nude with very fine shimmers but it took me FOUR medium-density coats to make the nail bed area look as even as possible with the whites of my fingernail tips.
Otherwise, it's a beautiful color - one of my favorite nudes, actually - and I prefer to wear this when I feel like having natural and subtle color on my nails. It's quite sophisticated but still has that slight bling factor because of the shimmers. I love OPI varnish and am overjoyed that most of their varnishes now come with the larger professional brush. I'm still a novice painter so the wider brushes are easier for me to use.
Just-Teasing is one of the easiest nude varnishes that I've worked with. It dries well, not too fast or not too slowly, and it isn't very streaky. The downside is that you have to be patient and add each layer of polish carefully but if you're in the market for a pretty nude shade, check this out!
Also, there was a nude polish by OPI that was similar to Just Tea-Sing but it did not have any shimmers. If any of you might have an idea of which polish I'm referring to, please let me know! The name escapes me and I'm desperate to find that shade =(

I'll be reviewing the two Chanel varnishes that will be shown in my July Haul next ^^

I'm Not Dead!


Hello, everyone!

I'm sorry I've been absent for so long but I've been on "holiday." I've mostly been running errands with my sister and my nephew and locked up in my room studying for the LSATs. My grandmother squawks at me several times a day that I'm not studying enough -___-

I'll be back in my apartment in two days so I promise to post more reviews and tutorials as soon as possible. There's at least 10 videos I need to film in the week that I'm back in my regular set-up! Plus, I'll be writing a blog post nearly every day, if not twice a day. O_O There will be a flood of nail varnishes, all gorgeous! [What's new, right?] puahaha

I decided recently, too, that I'll be reviewing individual products here on this blog! I post very long, detailed reviews on YT for the most requested products, usually foundations. This blog, however, will focus on individual colors of products that I've already video reviewed. For example, I will take pictures of and swatch for you the Rose Comete Rouge Coco. I will focus the review on that particular shade =) I hope you guys will look forward to that.

And the most exciting news.. I'll be starting my Monolids Tutorial Series THIS WEEK! I know I've been procrastinating and I sincerely apologize to all my monolid ladies and gents out there. My two main models will be my sister, since so many of you are dying to meet her, and my best friend Tammy, who I refer to as my guinea pig in my videos =)


See you soon!

Rae
