OPI - It's My Year

Hi Guys! I have a new favorite to show you today. This is It's My Year and it is from the OPI Miss Universe Collection. This collection really surprised me because I can honestly say I love all the colors. They are all super unique and I own nothing like them. This is a purple jelly polish with gold glitter and what appears to be sparse micro gold holo glitter. This polish has so many dimension that my camera could not capture them all. In some lights it is gold and then its purple but it always has this extra sparkle to it that I think can only be explained by the addition of some holo glitter.
Does anyone else own this one? Do you know what I'm talking about when I say it has an extra dimension of glitter, or am I just crazy?

Wet n Wild - Everybody Loves Redmond

I have a quick post for you today. I have Wet n Wild Everybody Loves Redmond. It is a beautiful Red Jelly polish. All the pictures I took made this polish look fake because it is so shiny! I am kind of obsessed with jelly polishes and Wet n Wild has a lot of great options that you do not see with other polish brands. I think this polish is dying to be layered with gorgeous glitter!

 

I love a good red nail. I always feel so girly and sophisticated when I have a shiny red mani. What do you girls think?

OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It! & Crown Me Already

Hi Guys! Sorry I have been absent for the last week. I have been super busy with work and school once again. I have been picking up some extra shifts which is probably not smart with the homework I have but I have to support my polish addiction! Today I have a cute mani I did using some polishes from the Miss Universe Collection. I used Swimsuit..Nailed It!, which is a awesome blue with micro shimmer and I chose an accent nail with Crown Me Already.


Crown me already is so sparkly it was hard to get a good photo. Well that's all for today. Back to homework!

I Caved! Revlon - Facets of Fuchsia

So I like most of you caved and had to get the dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance. I probably would have wanted the Deborah Lippmann polish so thanks Revlon for creating Facets of Fuchsia. Nothing against Deborah because I actually got one her polishes from apothica and it arrived a few days ago and it is already on my fingers. It is gorgeous and I am already planning my next buy from her line.

I have to say this polish is pretty gorge! This was two coats of Facets of Fuchsia over one coat of Wet n Wild Black Creme. I want to wear this polish again because I have seen a lot of girls matte this polish and I think it looks super cool. I also have my $1.00 off Revlon cosmetics coupon from Target so I might go and pick up the pink glitter one or maybe the blue. I have to see them in person again to see if I really need them. Who knows, I may need them both.

Wet n Wild - Club Havana

Today I have a great polish to review! This is Wet n Wild Club Havana. This polish is a orange-y coral creme polish. I applied two coats for full opaque-ness. This polish applied like a dream and I really like the short stubby bottle. I really like the brush on this polish it is shaped for the nail and is slightly curved. This was my first time trying the Wet n Wild megalast line and I have to say I really like it. The name of this polish reminds me of Dirty Dancing Havana Nights the movie. I don't know why, I have never actually seen it.lol


I have a couple more polishes from this line to try and one in particular(disturbia) makes me excited. I hope to have that for you next week! Make sure you guys go out and take advantage of the sale that is going on at Walgreen's right now. All of the Wet n Wild products that were $1.99 are currently 99 cents. I have picked up some great makeup and some nail polishes that I did not own from the fast dry line. I love their eyeliners and I had to have them in all colors. Even if that meant driving to 3 Walgreen's to get them :)

China Glaze - OMG

Why hello my lovely readers! I have missed you guys. Sorry I have not posted in a long time but school is kicking my butt this semester. I have had massive amounts of homework and extra time spent after work is with my bf or doing more homework. I have been painting my nails though. I have also been taking pictures and have them uploaded to the computer but that was as far as they made it. Until today anyways. I will try to have some more posts this week as I am slowly getting back into a schedule. I have another beauty for you today, China Glaze OMG. This was another one of my swap polishes from Gia from Bottles and Bottles of Polish.
I freaking love this polish so much and like the other holo I was gifted(2NITE), I felt like it was a sin to take it off. I like the look of the linear holo but the scattered effect of the DS polishes are quite gorgeous as well. I have OPI DS Designer that I still have yet to show you guys and I will swatch that soon. It is a beautiful nude holo and if I could get my grubby hands on a full bottle I would just die! Unfortunately, my is only half :( Well I really hope to post more frequently because I have a huge amount of polish that is untried. I have been buying since my birthday, but there are so many cool Halloween collections and I must have!

100th Post!!!!! All My Favorites!

So I have made it to my 100th post. I really did not know if I could make it to the 100 mark. I started this blog to see if I could find some people that have similar interests as me(being nail polish). I really did not think that anyone would follow but now I am over 100. I did not think that I would be welcomed into the Nail Polish Blogger circle but I must say these girls are so nice. I want to thank all the nail bloggers who have helped me along the way and have given advice as well as laughs! Again I want to thank my followers, you guy are amazing. I may not always reply to all comments but I try and I always read them no matter what. I wanted to do something a little different today. I have gathered all my favorite manis I have done over 100 posts. Hope you all enjoy!

I hope you guys enjoyed a little look at the past. I know I enjoyed looking back. I have a horrible memory so it was nice to see things for the first time again haha. I have not been posting a lot lately and that is not for lack of effort. I have tons of photos waiting to be edited to be posted but I just started school back 2 weeks ago and I am still trying to get back into the swing of things. I will try to have some posts up this week if I can! Thanks again guys for reading!

Zoya - Yara

My first ZOYA! This is the first Zoya polish I have ever owned and I love it! I have been lusting over this polish since swatches started showing up on blogs and knew I had to have it somehow. While on vacation I went to my first Ulta and this little baby was sitting on the shelf saying "buy me!", so I did. This is a olive green polish with flecks of gold glitter.
2 coats of Yara and one coat of Seche

Close up of the glitter flecks. It shimmers gold and rose gold type color as well.
Application was pretty amazing on this polish. I could have gotten away with one thick coat but opted for two thin ones instead because I was not sure how this polish dried and what not. I will definitely be purchasing more Zoya's in the future. I would love to hear what your favorite Zoya polishes are. Let me know what are your faves so I can buy more!

Next Post is the 100th!!!!

Wet n Wild - Teal of Fortune

Here is a quick swatch of Wet n Wild Teal of Fortune. I wanted to show this to this week so you can get your behind over to Walgreen's and take advantage of the sale they are having this week. All of there $1.99 merchandise is selling for .99 cents this week(ending Sat. I think). I love this teal color and the formula on this one was not to bad. I did three coats of Teal of Fortune and one coat of Seche for extra shine! These polishes never cease to amaze me. Now if I could only get my hands on Behind Closed Doors from the On The Prowl Collection I would be a super happy girl.


I did not pick up any polishes but I raided two Walgreen's displays for eyeliner. If you guys have never used their eyeliner this is the time to try it. I have always used Covergirl eyeliner or eyeshadow for lining my lids. It was until I got sent some Color Icon Liners in a contest I won. I have top say I am kind of addicted now.

Bottom to top: Color Icon in a Khaki color, Color Icon Shimmer Liner in Navy, Megalast Liner in Brown Black
I got all the ones I could find because I love them. I only wear top liner and other brands would be half way down my face mid day and these withstood hot humid summer days at work and that is pretty good! Well i suggest you stock up because this is a great deal! Hurry and get to Walgreen's  before it's picked through.
