INGLOT O2M Breathable 688 Swatches & Review

INGLOT O2M Breathable Swatches Review

Refreshing like an after-dinner mint for nails is INGLOT O2M Breathable 688, which is a perky green creme.

Clean without being stark, it’s a soft shade that fits into this transitional period where we’re getting tired of the winter and longing for the warmth of spring.

As you know, wearing green nail polish feels like second nature to me, and INGLOT O2M Breathable 688 is no exception. It’s a total ‘Comfort Colour’ for me.

INGLOT 988 Swatches & Review

INGLOT 988 Swatches Review

INGLOT 988 is a Comfort Nail Polish to me that’s akin to a piping hot bowl of chilli on a day when the weather outside is frightful.

It wasn’t always this way, but green speaks to my soul. Although I can appreciate a diverse spectrum of shades, green is the colour that I find to be the most soothing and ‘natural.’ It’s the colour that I feel represents me the best, and it’s rare that a green doesn’t make my heart sing like a Disney princess whose bed is made by sweet little birds. (Pfft! Who needs a Prince Charming?) 😉

How has your New Year been so far? Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? Are you sticking to them?

I rarely make New Year’s resolutions anymore. Instead, I set goals for myself frequently throughout the year, and that works best for me because I like having numerous achievements to strive for on a regular basis instead of once a year.

Now it’s time for a tangent, cosine, or sine. 😉

Something that’s unrelated, but that I wanted to mention is that the other day, I was doing random searches on YouTube. Ever do that? You end up researching one thing, but then you fall down the rabbit hole and wind up somewhere completely unexpected.

I started off listening to old songs that brought back happy memories – 2Pac Thugz Mansion (the acoustic version), Fight Test by The Flaming Lips, Fabolous’ You Be Killin’ Em, and T.I.’s Whatever You Like.

Then, after a long string of searches, it was the Six Degrees of YouTube Separation. I ended up listening to a man speaking about his experience in a maximum-security prison!

While listening to this man, I was inspired because he totally turned his life and attitude around. After spending years in prison and being stripped of his freedom, he was finally released, and he chose to lead a life that wasn’t down a criminal path.

Despite the temptations and his friends who were released and repeated the same old mistakes, this guy had the courage to resist. He created his own happy story, and he took full responsibility for all the crimes he committed in the past. He even tried to help other convicts change their ways, and he put himself in danger by doing so.

Stories like his make me think that there really are angels on earth.

People like him inspire me the most. It’s not those who have it all who impress me. The people who have lost it all and have learned what the real riches are set the biggest example for me. It’s people like him whose stories I’d want to help write into a book. The world needs to hear them and come back down to earth.

INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 618 Swatches & Review

INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 618 Swatches & ReviewThere are two times in the year when I feel drawn to orange nail polish more than usual: the summer and in the fall (especially around Hallowe’en, my favourite holiday).

A simple bright orange sometimes is just the pop of colour you need to take a monochromatic outfit to the next level.

I purchased INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 618 a while ago and finally got around to wearing it.

So how did INGLOT O2M Breathable nail polish in shade 618 fare in this nailphile’s book? There’s one way to find out!

INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 682 Swatches & Review

INGLOT-O2M-Breathable-Nail-Enamel-682-Swatches-&-ReviewSince I first heard that breathable nail polish existed, I’ve been itching to try out the INGLOT O2M breathable nail polishes!

They have so many colours, and I drooled over all of them since I attended a blogger event last year and met INGLOT’s two Canadian presidents! (I swear that I left a puddle from all the drool, so if you see some wet nail-polish bottles in the Toronto store at Yonge-Dundas Square, it was from me.) 😉

It was a difficult task choosing a few shades, but INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 682 jumped into my loving nailphile arms as quick as a wink because it’s a wonderful Marsala shade, which is Pantone’s Colour of the Year!

(Not long ago, I had the pleasure of spending a snow day with this lovely INGLOT nail polish, which you may remember from that post where I took it for an outdoor photoshoot.)

After making snow angels, enjoying a warm cup of cocoa, and telling ghost stories late at night by the fireside, INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Enamel 682 agreed to let me snap it for a typical Swatch And Learn photoshoot. 😉

Snow Day with INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Polish #682

Inglot Canada O2M Nail Polish 682Marsala is Pantone’s Colour of the Year, and I’ve fallen for its earthy richness. (There’s a wide range of interpretation for this colour that spans grandma chic to classy fashionista.)

So you can imagine my excitement when I received a telephone call from INGLOT O2M Breathable Nail Polish #682! (It’s a lighter take on the Marsala trend.)

We chatted on the phone for several hours about celebrity crushes, men who acted like boys, favourite poutine hot spots in Toronto, and how hard it was to resist the Ann Taylor flash sales.

Even though this INGLOT nail polish is the “It” shade for 2015, it still remained down-to-earth and relatable, which is proof that fame hasn’t gone to its head! 😉

We decided to meet in person for a fun snow day after grabbing caramel lattes with whipped cream from Starbucks!

This post features photos I took from our precious time together.
