Swatch It Up: NOPI–Sweet Dreams and Pandora Polish-Floral Passion

This post features a polish I have been wanting to wear for awhile from Pandora’s Makeup Box called Floral Passion. It came as part of a duo with a complementary perfume and is described as “rich purple with two coat coverage”. The two coat coverage is most certainly true and applied opaquely and evenly while I would add more to the colour description by saying this purple leans more on the greyish side especially in real-life.

I was about to leave this polish alone when I spotted an untried (one of hundreds I’m sure) in my collection! I decided to also add two coats of Nicole by OPI – Sweet Dreams from the Selena Gomez collection which is composed of three different types of glitter: silver and teal blue hex and lavender micro-glitter. A totally awesome combination. Love it!

    1. It smells...flowery? It wouldn't be my first choice of perfume since I'm not that kind of girl, but it's subtle enough that I could see myself wearing it from time to time.

      Oh, here are the perfume notes:
      Top Note (Fruity Fresh, Ozonic Notes) - Pineapple, Blackcurrant, Honeydew Melon, Lotus Blossom. Middle Note (Warm Floral) -May Rose, Jasmine, Water Lily. Base Note (Woody Musk) -Peach, Mulberry, Sandalwood, Vetiver and also includes Botanical Oil of Willow Bark

  3. This combo looks fab! It makes me want to run out and get the NOPI and PB polishes! Or to my computer and order HAHA. I love the turquoise flecks against the purple base.

    1. Hahaha, a third SDM?? I've done two before and felt a little crazy, but if they all sell different brands, I think it's justified.

    1. The quality is great, the brush is nice although I wish the colours were a little more unique because I'm pretty sure I own this purple in some form.
