Showcasing UP Colors: Rosa Star

Good morning, dear readers!  I have a lovely lacquer to share with you today.  I don't like to wear holos frequently, so this one has been waiting around for me for a little while, and it did not disappoint!  UP Colors is a Brazilian line, and they unfortunately are not 3-free.  I'm not a big stickler for 3-free brands, so the only thing that bothered me was the smell.  I generally paint my nails next to an open window, so that helped a bit and it wasn't a big problem for me.  I was surprised by the amount of coverage I got in just one coat, so I decided to just go with the one and save the rest of my polish for later.  Hey, when I only get 10mL in a bottle, I want to be able to enjoy it as long as possible!  On to the pics (and please ignore the dry cuticles; this dry weather is killing them)!
I love this colour in the bottle, and I love it on the nails, but I'm not sure that I love it on MY nails.  I couldn't tell you how many times I looked down at my hands in an effort to determine how I feel, and I just don't know.  I really like the raspberry colour of the base, but I think the purple flashes in the holo effect are turning me off.  I'll figure it out sooner or later, and knowing me, I'll probably decide when the bottle is almost empty!  Ha!

If you don't have a friend in Brazil to pick this up for you, you can order this and other UP Colors from

In other news, I had a Mary Kay consultation yesterday, and I hope to have a post up on that soon.

Until next time, dear readers, stay good, or don't get caught! ;)


  1. Super cute holo! I'm not huge on some holos either and have definitely had that issue where you keep staring and wondering if you REALLY like it on or just in the bottle lol. Hopefully you find a way to love it (maybe with a bit of stamping on top?) or maybe someone to swap with for something you truly love. either way- lovely shots! xo E

  2. I only have one UP, but I think they are a great holo for the price! This color is really pretty and I am not normally a big fan of pink, but this is almost a salmon-y color. I think I need to buy a winter home in Brazil. If for no other reason than to go shopping for amazing polish! :)

  3. Beautiful polish. I don't have any of the Up colors.
