OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It!

*Purchased myself*

So I'm in the process of putting all of my polishes onto swatch sticks instead of nail wheels (although I'm at a standstill because I need more sticks). So far I've gotten 200 done and I'm only through 2 brands of polish. It's kind of relaxing and therapeutic for me though so hopefully I can get more sticks soon and continue on with it.

In the process of doing this though, I'm coming across all kinds of polishes that I've forgotten I had or forgotten how awesome they are. One of the polishes I knew I had to wear ASAP was Swimsuit...Nailed It! by OPI. This polish is from the Miss Universe collection from 2011. I came across it a few months ago at TJ Maxx for $3.99. I've been getting some awesome OPI deals there recently. But anyway, here is a pic of this beautiful polish.

For some reason I didn't really think much of this when I first saw pictures of it but I'm so glad I have it now. It's a gorgeous, shimmery, sparkly blue foil that I could not stop staring at. If you ever come across it I suggest snatching it up!

BFTE Cosmetics Pumpkin EVERYTHING!!

I was very excited to open up my mailbox yesterday and see my order from BFTE Cosmetics. A few weeks ago the owner Kim posted on Facebook that she was going to have a pumpkin-themed Fall collection and as soon as I saw the swatch pics I knew I had to have it. Fall is my absolute favorite season and I love that everything pumpkin is released everywhere. Appropriately, the collection is called Pumpkin EVERYTHING!! I also ordered the COTM (color of the month) and she threw in a few samples as well. This was my first BFTE order and I have to say that I really like the packaging. It is very sleek and simple and pretty.

I swatched everything over Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Pumpkin EVERYTHING collection
Top Row L-R: Pumpkin Glow, Pumpkin EVERYTHING!!, Pumpkin Patch, Pumpkin Spice
Bottom Row: Pumpkin blush (not blended out)

In short, these colors are amazing! They are soft and blendable and the sparkle to all of them is just gorgeous. I also ordered the COTM shadow (Grape Leaves) and received a few samples as well. 

L-R: Amityville, Harvest, Chocolate, Grape Leaves

Again, the sparkle and color shift to these colors is just gorgeous and I can't recommend this company enough. You can order the Pumpkin EVERYTHING!! eyeshadows here and the Pumpkin blush here. It is limited edition so if you want it don't wait!
