I Gotta Confection To Make...

First I know I've been a very bad blogger :( but migraines, depression, and new medication can do that to you. I'm a pretty open person and see no reason to be ashamed or embarrassed by it. I've had migraines since I was about 5yrs old, and have had on + off depression since about 14. It's part of who I am and all I can do it try and work through it and move on. Soooo... enough of that, on to the pretties you came for :)

"I Gotta Confection To Make" is a polish from the Spoiled line by WNW. I saw it today at CVS and even though I don't like pink much, I tend to fall for pink polishes a lot... Weird! About a week or so ago I first bought "Tip Your Waitress" which is pretty much a neon pink, and I had to have it lol. When I saw IGCTM I knew I was going to have to use the two together and that is just what I did :)

This is two coats of "Tip Your Waitress" Cameras really don't like neon colors. I tried to get it as close to as IRL as possible. It's a very pretty color and it dries to a semi-gloss. It's not matte, but it isn't super shiny either.

This is two coats of "I Gotta Confection To Make" I was curious if the pink base of it would change the color of "Tip Your Waitress" but it didn't at all which I was happy about. I love how it came out. Almost like a piece of candy coated in sugar :) I'm sure you could wear IGCTM on it's own. I swatched it on a nail wheel and I think maybe 3 coats at the most would give you full opacity. The formula on both polish was so smooth, like butta, the one thing I found annoying was the brushes are to wide for my narrow little pinkie nails lol, but I can deal with it.

Bonus.... Since I've been neglecting my readers:
I've seen a lot of posts about Revlon "Royal" and decided I had to get this polish here it is...
First I did two coats of "Royal" and added two coats of KleanColor "Grand Finale"

 Also I went to Ulta during lunch today and bought two of the O.P.I. colors from the Nicki Minaj collection, one of them was "Save Me' This is one coat over "Royal"...

"Save Me" is awesome. It's similar to "Grande Finale" but it has so much more added to it... "Royal" on the other hand, while it is a very pretty blue, was a PITA application wise. It didn't want to go where I wanted it to go and I had to re-do a couple nails. ugggg I'm not sure if I am going to keep it or trade it. It's  sooo pretty though... Oh well.

That's it for today.

Do you have "Royal"? If so what has your experience been like?

And as always, Thanks for reading :) This blog is pointless with out my readers :)


  1. I would be all over both of those pink polishes! Love them! And I don't have Royal, but it looks like a great color!

  2. They are very pretty and the formula is soooo nice. Royal is pretty but the formula is a PITA lol
