I was at TJ Maxx last week and they had quite a selection of nail polishes from brands like Essie, OPI, Orly, Nicole by OPI, Sephora, and a few Ciate, Butter London, and Julep. I love finding these treasures at TJ because they are typically half off the original price.
The only non-nail polish product I got from this haul is the Macadamia healing Oil Spray for hair. Love the packaging. This is $16.99 as opposed to $29.50 retail price. Ching Ching! Gotta love the savings!
This set of OPI costed me $7.99. They usually retail about $9.00 each.
OPI Baring It All is a light cool toned flesh nude with a cream finish. I have 3 coats on the swatches. The formula is not too thick or thin and is a bit streaky at first but levels well and looks even on the 3rd coat. It's very plain jane for me and needs either glitter or some sort of design to oomph it up.
OPI Frog In My Throat looks beautiful in the bottle. It's got a dark jelly base with goldish green shimmers, small holographic glitters, and orange flakies. It's so much prettier in person but I gotta admit that the shimmers are understated once the polish dries. The formula is thin but easy to work with and can be built up to an opaque coverage in 3 coats.
Julep Paris has a clear base and a mix of gold and silver holographic glitters with smaller holographic glitters. Here I'm wearing one coat over OPI Bare It All. Told yall it looks better with glitters. The base is not too thin or thick, picks up a decent amount of glitters and you only have to pat them a bit to get them where you need them. The bottle is so little, only .27 oz, about half the size of a typical nail polish bottle. Even paying $5.00 for it doesn't feel right.
Butter London Swinger...haha, the name makes me laugh because I'm definitely a swinger when it comes to nail polishes. I'm greedy and I gotta have all them preciouses. Swinger has a lightly green tinted base with very tiny gold and green glitters and small green glitters. It's rather sheer but applies fairly evenly and you can get opaque coverage in 3 coats.
