Oh So Sassy! Nail Colors in Vivid Shades

Happy rainy Sunday everyone! And just because I was so lazy to go out for the weekend, I decided to write about my latest nailaholic discovery -- Sassy Nail Polish! I know these have been in the market for quite awhile but I must say whoever was in-charge of their R&D has done a very good job! Nice colors that are unique and wearable!

Last week, when we were in SM Mall of Asia and I was looking for some new nail colors, I saw a bunch of Sassy nail polish in its new packaging, along with its new line -- their version of cracking nail color. Since I still have a lot of cracking nail polishes that had remained untouched in my bucket, I decided to get a few of the regular ones. I got (L-R) Neon Pink, Lucky Red, Neon Red and Midnight.

These babies are so cheap (Php 17 - 18.50 each). The bottle may look small, but for me, the contents are just enough to satisfy your nailaholic cravings. This gives room for you to try more colors and allow variations, rather than getting a big bottle for several hundred bucks only to find out you are starting to get tired of having the same color on your nails for months!

In terms of color pay-off, I must say it is pigmented, except for Midnight (frosted) which I had to put four coats before arriving at the dark blue color that I want. I used two coats for the other three colors. 

Overall, Sassy Nail Color is a steal! I'd love to get more colors in the future! 

Available in all Watson's nationwide.

Avon Shine Attract Lipstick in Guava

I've been seeing Anne Curtis' ad on the walls of Ayala Avenue's underpass - the one with her signature red luscious lips - and so when I saw Avon's Shine Attract Lipstick on my neighbor's brochure, I ordered one just to give to it a try. I got the one in Guava, a natural-looking apricot shade.

The formula (or presentation) is quite unique, as it is a mousse lipstick on the center, surrounded by clear lipgloss on the side. 

Nice nude-apricot shade
Sleek packaging

Color payoff is so-so
Not longwearing
Hard to apply

I am just thankful I didn't get the red one, as I am pretty sure it is harder to apply. I use this now on top of my Avon Simply Pretty Lip and Cheek Tint, the way I use a lip balm before.
