Emerald Express

About a month ago Sally Hansen Insta-Dri came out with their fall colors. A lot of them caught my interest, but I only picked up three. Here is one.. 'Emerald Express'

This is a teal emerald shade, It dries to a frost/shimmer finish.

I used two coats with Nail Life as my base coat, and Seche as my top coat.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Haul time!

Here in Louisiana I have to drive pretty far just to buy a bottle of China Glaze or OPI. So I do a lot of polish shopping online. That is where I found China Glaze's Haunting collection. 

I had to use two different e-tailers, but all was good in wonderland when both shipments arrived in just two days. I used, and

 Left to Right: 'Near Dark' - a deep forest green, creme/almost jelly finish
'Haunting' - a black base chock full of micro silver glitters, glitter finish
And 'Crimson' - a rich dark plum, creme finish

 Left to Right: 'It's Alive' - a green base with micro yellow/green glitters with medium hexagonal green glitters, glitter finish.
'Near Dark', Crimson', 'haunting', 
and lastly,  'Ghoulish Glow' - a glow in the dark polish.

Just now realized that 'Near Dark' has my dogs spilled medicine on it! Sorry :/

About an hour away there is a small Walmart/farm and country type of store called Alco. This time while visiting.. I saw..well.. a couple of things I wanted :D

First up we have three of the four polishes from OPI's 2011 Miss Universe Collection

 From left to right: 'Swimsuit...Nailed it!' - a blue/teal base with blue shimmer. It is a shimmer/foil finish.
'Congeniality is my middle name' - a deep red/fuchsia with pink/fuchsia glitter, shimmer finish.
'It's MY year' - a pink/purple base with pink/gold/purple duo-chrome glitter, glitter finish.

 Here we have 'Sahara Sapphire' - a blue/purple pearl, with an almost metallic finish. 

 Next up is 'Black Satin' - a dark charcoal base with silver and black shimmer. With a metallic finish.

 From the Stranger Tides collection of 2011 we have 'Stranger Tides' and 'Skull & Glossbones'. I'm sure I don't need to explain these two :)

 The display on these next five was called Pinkcitment. All of these colors were brought from other already existing collections. 

 'Shorts Story' - a bubble gum creme finish.
         'Don't know...Beets Me!' - a raspberry creme finish

'ElePhantastic Pink' - a coral pink creme finish
'La Paz-itively Hot' - a coral pink shimmer finish

'You're a pisa work' - a dark pink creme finish

I also picked up Sally Hansen's 'Nude Now' - a light nude shimmer finish.

So that's all for this haul! Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Finger Paints Crackle Effect

While browsing Sally's I stumbled upon Finger Paints Crackle Effects. They have two colors, a rich royal blue called ' Blue Crackle' and an almost shimmery purple called 'Purple Crackle'.

When I bought these I really liked them, and since then Color Club has come out with Fractured, and Milani has come out with Krackle. I'm kind of over it now lol. I have China Glaze, Finger Paints, and OPI and I think that might be enough for me.

But enough talk, here are pictures:)

 The crackle colors are one coat over two coats of Wet N Wild Fast Dry's 'Silvivor'. I based these with Nail Magic, and their finished with Seche.

 I love the look of this blue and silver!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

OPI My Private Jet

Hey lovely ladies! How are you all? I have been gone for a little over a month now. School has started up and I've been working full time, and unfortunately blogging had to be put on the back-burner. But I'm at a point where I can start again! I'm happy about it too, cause my nails have been naked for almost a month! eek! what a scary sight :)

For you today, I have OPI's 'My private Jet'. This polish is so talked about that when I happened to see it at my ulta, I had to scoop it up. I'm super happy I did. This is not only a beautiful color to be sporting this fall, but I would wear this any time of the year! I love it!

 I used two coats here, with Nail Life as my base and Seche as my sealer. This is a gorgeous almost chocolate brown with little white/silver flecks of glitter. I really enjoyed this color!

Thanks for staying tuned! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
