I have other metallic blue polishes…but none are exactly this shade. They’re very close, but they’re a little brighter, or they have a slightly roughened finish.

Nails Inc’s Fallen Mermaid polish duo

Nails Inc’s Fallen Mermaid polish duo

Posted on Tuesday, at

Nails Inc has two mermaid-themed polish duos: this one, and Self-Made Mermaid. Where Self-Made Mermaid is medium-light and pale pastels, this duo is deeper shades, both totally opaque (no “near-effects top coats”!) one a metallic finish and the other a scattered-holo.

Fyrinnae’s Arcane Magic: Internet

Fyrinnae’s Arcane Magic: Internet

Posted on Monday, at

This was a limited-edition collaboration shade from Fyrinnae and Josh J Morin (or someone named Josh J Morin, who appears to have deleted his IG, YT, and other things.) I don’t know who this person was, but I’m glad that I got the color from Fyrinnae. It looks either blackened teal or muted blue-violet in the pot, and it morphs between deep violet, blue-violet, teal-blue and blackened cyan.

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Pearly Anthracite

Kiko Cosmetics’ Smart Colour Mascara in Pearly Anthracite

A lighter color without being a brighter color. This gives me softer definition and a color that’s obviously different from navy, deep plum, or dark green. The brush bristles are trimmed in a cone, shorter near the top and longer near the base, so that you can separate the lashes more or apply more product in a single stroke depending on the angle of the wand. Personally I’m not a fan of that…and I do wish that...

Sigil Inspired’s Sweet Tooth

Sigil Inspired’s Sweet Tooth

Posted on Thursday, at

Close to Hot Step Mama from TKB Trading, but leans a bit more coral-pink than red. This is a good shade for people who love the idea of red eyeshadow but not the result! You get more color depth, but since it shows up as a corallish shade it doesn’t look quite as unusual as red eyeshadow can. The only ingredient that’s listed for this is “mica”, and I have not tested its wear without a primer, so...

Zoya’s Veronica

Zoya’s Veronica

Posted on Wednesday, at

This is the only shade I got from the 2014 Entice collection, and I only picked it up in 2018. There were some other shades that caught my eye, but I already had other colors that were similar to Ryan (deepest turquoise) and while Geneviev looked interesting, I’m not 100% sure that I want another medium-dark grey creme. But oh my fluffy lord, I love Veronica! This is a lovely shade, a “vampberry” - I get the deeper shade and high color...
