Photo dump!

Just pictures this time!

Manicure #19 – China Glaze Sexy in the City. Going to trade this one. I loved it in the bottle, but hated it on me.

Manicure #20 – L’Oreal Yellow Seahorse. Yellow isn’t me and even though you can see VNL, I am keeping it. It’s a HTF polish!

Manicure #21 – L’Oreal Coral Starfish. Love this color. I don’t have pictures, but Pink Shells is to die for too. I haven’t used the blue one yet. L’Oreal did a great job on this collection!

Manicure #22 – Sally  Hansen Complete Manicure in Barracuda. I love this color, but please forgive the nasty cuticles and messed up nails. I will definitely be wearing this again, but allowing more dry time in between coats.

Manicure #23 – Color Club Revealed. I didn’t think I was going to like this, but I do. It looks so much better in other lights. Lots of shimmer! I think I like this better than Essie’s Tard Deco.

Pedicure #9 – Color Club Ultra Astral and Starry Temptress topcoat. I love this collection so much, but it is such a pain to take off. I still love you glitter!

Current Manicure (#3) and Pedicure (#2)

OMG. I just want to say that I am in LOVE with my current manicure. I had been searching for this Color Club for a while and found it at Harmon’s. It was in the right place, however there were two other colors jammed in front of it. I think this is the type of color that I need a back up of. This is Color Club Revvvolution:

::sigh::

Application on this was a dream! It went on easy with one coat, but since I love 2 coats, it was perfection! I used OPI Designer Series topcoat and it left it extremely shiny!

Next up is my pedicure, but of course I never show my feet, so here are the colors I used:

Wet N Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer and Wet N Wild Party of 5 Glitter. I feel like my feet look like disco balls! I think this purple is more of a blurble and unfortunately when it photographs, it looks a lot like another Wet N Wild, Saved by the Blue. Application on this was easy! Definitely get coverage in one coat although you do get some brushstrokes. You definitely need the 2nd coat to even things out. The glitter was easy to apply, however I don’t have gobs of glitter. The brush only picks up a little bit. These Wet N Wilds live up to their name in that they truly are fast dry polishes. A+ for affordability and for the color selection.

Tomorrow I will post my embarrassing haul of nail polish. I need to be banned!

>I painted my nails this past Saturday with Essie Pretty Edgy:

Application was just okay on this. The first coat was extremely runny and thin. Second coat was much better and evened out the color. This reminds me of green grass. Very springy! I painted my nails kind of fast so I had a few chipping issues. I decided to update my manicure with some glitter yesterday.

Here is Sinful Colors Green Ocean without flash:

This was a bit goopy, but that can be expected from a nail polish that has glitter and some foil pieces. This reflects mostly blue.

Finally, my pedicure color. I refuse to take pictures of my toes. They get made fun of a lot by friends and family! Let’s just say they look like lollipops or lightbulbs.

I am wearing Sinful Colors Timbleberry, painted on Saturday also:

Application was smooth in one coat, but I am a 2 coater. This color is a pinky coral. Perfect for summer!
I think the only time my hand and toes every match are during the summer!
I’ll be changing my polish tonight. Look out for the updates soon.
