Way Back Wednesday #6- Nails Inc.

I hope y’all are as proud of my dedication to the WBW posts as I am, I’m excited to see how far I can go in my collection!

So in front of the camera lens is episode 5 which features some throwback polishes circa 2012! The first time I saw swatches of these polishes was by The Polishaholic (see post here). I didn’t really frequent Sephora at the time, I mostly bought my lacquer from drug stores. After I purchased all 4 I felt bad because they were a bit pricey ($9.50), but once tried the formula and like it; the results began to override my buyer’s remorse! 

Do you remember (Michael Jackson voice)

My favorite shade is Topping Lane (pink one).

Thanks for reading and stay tuned to episode 6.

Way Back Wednesday #5- Revlon

*High five for ya girl keeping up with the WBW posts!!!

So back in 2013, Revlon (a brand I don’t normally purchase polishes from) released a set of scented polishes. When I think of scented polishes I remember growing up playing with toy nail polish sets, which smelled like candy.

Well Revlon came out with their adult version lol and it was a hit!! I found myself running behind all the blog posts relating that it’s been spotted. There I was going to and fro all the drugstores for my next hit of lacquer lol.

Remember these?

I recently saw these in a Kmart clearance bin, I didn’t swipe because I remember that a few of these tend to have an overwhelming scent. Loved the formula though!!

Thanks for reading!!

Way Back Wednesday #4- Duck

The winner for #4 episode of Way Back Wednesday is the spawn from a comical “reality” show Duck Dynasty. Say what you want but I enjoyed watching this show. The wit of the brothers, wives, parents and kids just put me in a happy place to see a family enjoying each other.

One day prancing through Walmart clearance aisle I spotted these polishes, never knew they even existed until that moment. I did know that they had other promotional items like cups and swamp themed placemats and such, but what a pleasant surprise to see polish! I was there for it!! These released back in 2014.

I like the glitter based formula, had zero problems with the application. If these polishes was just a trial run, they should have made more for a marathon. I hope my thoughts convey to you that I’d buy more if produced lol.

Did you see these in Walmart? Better yet, did you ever watch the show?

*please excuse the quality of this pic, in certain lights it came off as a black polish, this is natural light. I’m not fond of this one….it’s not an attractive color to me or on me!

Of course I have my favorites, who doesn’t?! I don’t like shimmer or metallic polishes that much but I wanted to swatch the whole collection. I am definitely a die hard creme, crelly or holo type of chica-lit lol! 

Aforementioned these will be available at Polish Con this Saturday in Chicago. If you miss it then, you can still catch it online October 13 on the KBShimmer website Don’t Fall asleep on this collection!! 

So what do you think? Have you “Fall”en in love with any of these? Lol.

Way Back Wednesday #2- Milani 

I hope I’ve made you say zzzzzzzomg she went back… I aim to please (wink).

Rummaging through the stash I bumped into these old dusties. I can remember when these came out, it was when textured polish was all the rage! Brands were testing their bait (me) and I bit on the Milani one lol. 

I remember the yellow being my ultimate favorite when I wore it, I will admit that the rough finish took some getting used to. 

What do you remember about these?

Thanks for reading!

Way Back Wednesday #1- Nicole by OPI 

Today, here at Nailmatticbeauty I’m starting a series called “Way back Wednesday”, in memory of polishes that has stuck out to me in my memory bank from way back when…. I’ll be featuring polishes/collections that released a while ago that was popular or LE. Those were the days when I ran to every Walgreens, Kmart or Walmart looking for certain polishes JUST so that it can now collect dust in my stash lol (you laugh cause it’s true for you too).

Walk with me down memory lane while I reminisce on my nails’ wet dreams lol.

My first feature is the Nicole by OPI “Roughles” textured polish collection. These 4 colors released back in 2014, I actually didn’t like the textured polishes that much until these came out. I loved the fun Easter colored themes to them (which they did release around that holiday). I actually like these with or without top coat.

Did you purchase these? For me, I couldn’t wait to get my nails on these (or these on my nails rather lol). I ended up buying doubles of the pink & yellow color ANNNNDDDDD I got more of them when they went in Kmart’s clearance bin for $3 (they retailed for $7.99).

Don’t be shy, tell me…. Are these still in your stash?

I’ve created the hashtag #lacquerlivesmatter for all the way back lacquers in my collection. On WBW’s I’ll be searching the hashtag #lacquerlivesmatter to see your “way back lacquers”, so join in on the party. Tag me also, can’t wait to see them!!
