I felt like I needed some red wine after I tried to get the cats to go to the park with me this afternoon. I wanted to take Exar, because he really likes the outside. The problem was, I couldn't get him in the harness, he screamed and growled and hissed and hit me hundreds of times. He acted like I was killing him...or taking his food.
BUT "Red Red Wine" is the name of the color of my Pacifica 7-Free nail polish that I got in my September Ipsy bag! This month's bag was a "Street Style" theme and I received the polish, the Crown Brush Infinity dual-ended eyeshadow brush, Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss, and Nourish Organic Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser, all for $10 and in the cute metallic bag. I did an in-depth post about Ipsy here, and you can sign up for their monthly service here.
I was excited to try Pacifica's 7 free nail color. I have been hearing about it for a while and I received a Pacifica product in an Ipsy bag before that I liked.
Unfortunately, the polish chipped on two fingers on my right hand by the next day, majorly, and there was a tiny chip on my left hand. I'm disappointed that the polish didn't last a day. I used my regular Seche Clear base coat and Seche Vite top coat, so I didn't do anything differently.
I liked this polish overall and wish it hadn't chipped so easily on me. I would recommend it, because sometimes people have good luck with chipping when I don't, but if you skip it, I don't think you're missing out on too much. My favorite parts are the shade of the polish and the cute packaging with the sea shells.
Most polishes (aside from drug store brand polishes) are 3 free, meaning they are free of DBP, Formaldehyde, and Toluene, and some are 4, 5, or 6 free. Personally, I feel that even without those things, there are still a lot of chemicals on the labels that I can't pronounce, so to me it doesn't make much difference, but I know it really matters to some people.
These polishes can be found at www.pacificabeauty.com and retail for $9. There are 25 shades plus a base/top coat, and a matte top coat. You can get 20% off your order from the website with the Ipsy code "FallBeauty." Ulta carries some Pacifica products, but I don't see the nail color on the Ulta website.
And thanks to my boyfriend for helping me take the pictures of my fingers with his camera! He posed my fingers around the bottle so it would look better.
