I don’t wear lipstick. I don’t like lipstick. I think I own exactly two shades (a nude pink and a bright neon red just to piss off my father occasionally). So when the prompt is “lipstick” I more or less just give up for the day. However, in a fit of whimsy, I stopped by Sephora this weekend and found a whole bunch of Sephora X polishes on sale for $5 in the sale bin, so I grabbed a whole bunch! Mostly because I’ve never tried Sephora X and they are usually closer to $13 (which I refuse to spend). One of the polishes that caught my eye was a light red metallic, which is where this mani came from.
The base is a (discontinued?) sephora polish called Extreme I have never tried Sephora X before (the last time I bought something from Sephora it was a “Sephora by OPI” because I just refuse to spend more than $8 on regular polish). So, on first impression, I am SERIOUSLY impressed. This polish went on like butter, the control was absolutely perfect (most of my metallics end up flooding my cuticles, especially on my cinderella hand, and I got none of that here!), and it covered in two coats. I actually don’t much care for the color, I prefer deep reds to light reds (oops) but I cannot complain about the polish itself.
I covered Extreme with two Bundle Monster stamps. The lines are from plate 603 stamped with Black on Black by Sinful Colors, and the kisses are from plate 616 stamped with Excalibur by A England. So see, I am sticking to the prompt! Loosely.
I am even more excited to play with the other Sephora X polishes I picked up now…I hope I am equally impressed. But two of them are glitter bombs and there is NO way they apply this easily. We shall see!
