Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I’m very thankful for my friends and family this year. I’m thankful for the life I have, and for you guys. Thanks for reading this little blog, and an extra thanks to my commenters 🙂
About the title of this post, that’s a song from the Twilight soundtrack. What relevance could this possibly have to the beauty world?
Twilight nail polishes, you guys!
Look at that hefty Cullen crest. I know you secretly want it. Swatches and my thoughts after the clicky text.
left to right: Debutante, Talon, Citrus
right to left: same polishes!
I’m not quite sure why none of these have Twilight-related names. Maybe the people at Twilight Beauty anticipated this type of conversation:
Your friend: Ooh pretty color! What’s that polish called?
You: Why, it’s Edward Cullen!
You friend: QQ
So, by naming them safe, ordinary words, you can sidestep that little snafu. But really, where in all of Twilight do they ever mention Citrus? Is it a reference to the apple on the cover? So many questions…
It so happens that I could care less about the names because the colors are all gorgeous. Citrus actually reminds me a lot of China Glaze Strawberry Fields. It’s a nice, hot pink with gold shimmer. Talon is a shimmery dark blue that I’m sure every single polish brand out there has already done, but if you somehow don’t have one, it’s pretty. Debutante is a rosy pink with gold swirl. Doesn’t it remind you of a satin dress?
I saved the best for last. Out of all the red polishes I have ever tried, there are only two I wear regularly. That would be China Glaze Ruby Pumps and this one:
I love the jelly finish. I love the bright, strawberry red color. I love how it (ironically enough) doesn’t make me look like I’ve got congealing blood all over my fingernails.
Twilight Nox Nail Polish in Red Velvet
The formula on these is one of the best I’ve ever tried. It’s the perfect consistency, and also very easy to control. Opacity is excellent; the skittle swatches were all one-coaters, and Red Velvet was 2 coats. These retail at $6.99 each, and they’re well worth the price IMO.
Which shade is your favorite?
