Today I’m showing you a brand that is totally new to me, called Arissa Colorvantage Nail Lacquer. I found it at Family Dollar selling for $2 a piece.
The nail polish came in packaging and the back of the package says that these polishes have Vitamin E, and are Big 3 Free!
The bottles are huge, they hold .50 fl oz. of nail polish! The cap is rubberized, which is awesome. I generally like polishes that have a shorter distance between the cap and the brush so that I can manipulate the strokes on my nail better, but these brushes (they are longer, more like Love My Nails brush/cap length) are easy to work with and I had no problems in application of the nail polish! So without further ado, here’s swatches! I am saving my favorite mani from this Arissa haul until the end
Beaming Bronze is a metallic bronze with an orangey/red hint to it. I didn’t think this one complemented my nails very well; you can really see the ridges with this one. I used the same base coat – Foundation Base Coat by Nubar – for each of these swatches and yet this is the only one that demonstrated my nails for the bumpy beings that they are. Hmm.
Rockin’ Amethyst is such a gorgeous purple! It’s got noticeable blue shimmer/fine glitter to it! It reminded me of Color Club’s Electronica, but that has more of a pinky shimmer than blue. I absolutely love this purple.
I was really unsure how Peachy Keen would look with my skin tone but it went really well! I decided this would be my manicure so I also took Nfu Oh #49 and gave it one coat!
I am bummed I couldn’t quite capture it’s awesomeness on my nails but boy does it glow in that bottle. Of course, I couldn’t resist Konading it, either!
You can see the awesomeness of Nfu Oh #49′s flakies in that last picture best, I think! I used plate M61 with Special Polish in Black.
Has anyone else seen Arissa? You can buy them on the Arissa Studios web site (link in the first line of this post) for $4 a piece. I didn’t see the shades I bought in the online selection, though.
Thanks for stopping by friends!
