So, as I said in the previous post, I bought this polish for $5.99 at Sallys. It was actually a really nice yellow. The first coat I used covered the nail. This made me happy since yellows can have really icky formulas sometimes. This one went on very smoothly however. (I still applied 2 coats).
Don't mind my nails once again. I'm trying to let them grow out a tad bit, but not too much. I really hate the way they look right now. :(
So..I went to Sallys today. I didn't intend on getting anything but..moving on..I spent only about under $30.00 for everything so I found it a great deal. :) They're also currently having a sale, buy 2 nail polishes get 1 free.
So here is what I got ;
Orly - SPARK $5.99
China Glaze- Strong Adhesion Base Coat $5.99
Orly - Green Apple (FREE)
The brand on the package is clay art and yeah no name for them.. $2.99
Seche Vite -Top Coat $4.99
Savvy- Hazelnut $1.99
These were all on sale and are sample sizes
OutTheDoor- Top Coat $0.39
Orly- Primetime $0.39

Sally Girl Sparkle Effects
Gleaming Green - $0.99
Blue Lagoon - $0.99
Pearly White - $0.99

I personally believe it was quite a good deal. I could be wrong though. I'm pretty happy with everything I got today and should be trying them all sometime this weekend. :) Hope you all have a nice weekend, and a nice holiday for all who celebrates Easter.
hey guys. I'm backk. Once again sorry for the lack of posting. :( Ummm I managed to swatch another CG HG color but It probably doesnt look all that great. I miss my long nails so much. :( I need them to grow back. Anyways this is a beautiful tanish color with a goldish shimmer. :)
Sorry If the photos are icky. :( My nails and camera aren't cooperating with me today..anyways guys have a great night :)
Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been posting. :( I've been super busy with school, and all of that junk. I also had to trim my nails...It was completely heart breaking. I had to because it's the start of soccer season and I guess they view long nails as dangerous weapons.. I miss them so much.. :(
Anyways! I made a video of my nail polish storage. It's a little shaky in the beginning and I apologize for that. However, leave me some feedback in the comments below! :)
I thought for the release of the movie I would post up another swatch of the CG HG collection! :)
Here is Smoke And Ashes.
I have very mixed feelings about this color. In the bottle it looks like a beautiful black with a hint of green shimmer. Yet on the nail It just looks well...black. I have actually heard people say it's more of a navy blue? I'm just going to stick with the fact I just think it's black. Cause you know...when I look at my nails right now..all I see is blackness.
Anyways guys! If you saw the movie tell me how it was in the comments below! I would love to hear from you guys. I have to wait until Tuesday to see the movie with my boyfriend. We both don't agree with having to pay almost $11.00 per ticket to see a movie. Ridiculous if you ask me! Over in my area we have prices that are reduced on Tuesdays. It used to be $5 Tuesday but now it's 7...yay inflation?
I would also like to know your view on the polish. Do you see more of a black? What do you think of it? Stuff like that.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. And a great evening of course. :)
Hello guys! It's the first day of spring so I thought I'd wear a springy type color. I doesn't feel like spring at all where I live. It feels like summer. It's been in the high 70s and into the 80s all week. I hear it's supposed to get close to 90 tomorrow. Yikes, I'm more of a 50s person. Anyways I love this color and it definitely stands out when you're wearing it on your nails!
Thanks for looking!
Also, how's the weather for you guys? I haven't really checked around to see. I live in the states. And I'm wondering if it's hot everywhere or is it just where I am on the east coast! :)
SO. I LOVE greens and today is St. Patricks day! So, here's a swatch of Agro by CG. I Absolutely loved the formula on this polish. It went on so nice and smooth. Just ugh, it's beautiful..
Thank you for checking this out! :)
I was also just wondering, what do you guys think about the flash and no flash pictures? Like, do you think it's better to have both photos, or is one more than enough? I personally like to see them both but I'm not sure.
I was cleaning my room today and I found this little guy hiding in the corner of my bedroom. I saw it and thought I have to put this on my nails tonight. It's such a beautiful color, and I love my greens and purples. :)
Here is a video I posted of the purpley goodness. I am god awful at videos! This is why I never went on youtube...
I hope you guys like it. Sorry for the really crappy videos and such. I tried! haha :)
Taking a little break from the China Glaze postings. :) I decided out of the blue today to pain my nails a color I bought not too long ago that I really loved and actually bought on accident. What happened was I was checking out at sephora and I they had a clearance bin in front of the cash register there was this one color in it I loved. The problem was there was only a tester, I asked if they still had any regular bottles anywhere. The lady said she'd check and when she came back she came back with Mermaid to Order. She said they still had some and rang it in. Needless to say I trusted her too much and ended up getting the wrong polish. I never looked at the name of the polish I originally wanted. So I guess I won't know what it was until we come face to face again. I know that was a pretty dumb thing of me to do. However, at least the polish I managed to pick up was still a beautiful color! :)
Gosh I just can't get over how great of a color this is. It looks 100x better in person. Go out to your local sephora and buy it. I demand it. :)
Here's a pretty picture of a mermaid to end this post with :)
Okay! So. Like I said I bought some Nail Wheels at Sallys Beauty Supply the other day. I just finished going through all my polishes and putting them on the wheels. A pack of 10 costs around $5.00 or so. Each wheel can hold 18 polishes, so each pack of 10 can hold 180 polishes. I organized mine by colors.
Neutrals & Golds
Greens (one is missing because I accidentally
sealed the bottle shut and now I can't open it..)
Pinks & Reds
Yellows & Oranges
Blues & a few teals
Black & Silver & White
Various nail colors, most of them being what I would use to put over some of my polishes..glitters & etc.
So, this is how I organized mine, keep in mind I am horrible with colors! :) So..that's why I might have some like pinks with the purples and etc...just really bad at judging what color goes where...
Anways guys, if you don't own these, I suggest you get them, they're so easy to use when you want to see what nail polishes you own!
I'm back to posting! Yay! :) I'm currently working on organizing all of my nail polish collection and such which is why I haven't been posting as much. Anyways, time for some swatchinn'.
Today I'm wearing Stone Cold. It's a beautiful matte color, and let's just say, I'm a big matte fan. :)
(I'm very curious about that chip in my pointer finger nail, you can't actually see it while looking at the nail yet it shows up in pictures...odd)
This color reminds me of well....stone....It's a beautiful dark gray with hints of silver in it. It also reminds me of the wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin....since you know...the name....he however looks nothing like the polish haha.
Hey guys! I've been somewhat busy lately sorry for the lack of posts. :( Basically, I went to Sallys on Friday I believe and bought some stuffz. :D
The most important thing being.... NAIL WHEELS. :D I've literally spent a pretty decent amount of time working on them.... I'm not really great at them though, I'm sort of really bad with colors... I also bought a Manicure Saver, (i believe thats what its called). I have very mixed feelings about it. I'll have to do a review post soon for you all. I also bought some hair stuff, I haven't gotten the chance to use it though.
Anyways, another lovely thing happened to me today. I got home from a friends house to find my nail polish knocked down. (I blame the cats) Needless to say I picked them up thought nothing of it and then felt sticky liquid like substance on my fingers. I looked down and they were pink. Panicing I searched for the polishes that were "leaking". Needless to say I bought them, shattered. It was heart breaking. I had to clean all my polishes (my nail polishes were being separated in containers so that I could keep color groups together while doing my nail wheels) and the bins. I lost two pinks today, I morn my loss. :( To make matters worse It completely destroyed the nails I was going to take a picture of once I got home to upload. I'll have to redo them. :( Anyways! I'll do my best to post tomorrow or so.
I know I don't have a lot of followers as of the time I am writing this. Or well...typing. However I'd like to say I appreciate every single one. :) I wanted to tell you guys that when I hit 50 followers I'm going to do a small giveaway! :D Exciting right? Yes, I thought so. :) I just thought I'd let you guys know!
On another note, I have a question for you guys. I see there has somewhat become a craze about these Magnetic Nail Polishes. I was just wondering if any of you guys have tried them? And if so, what did you think about them.
China Glaze. China Glaze. China Glaze. They have to be my most favorite nail polish brand yet. Today I am rocking out Riveting & Luxe and Lush. I really love the two colors together. I feel like they definitely give a fire effect. Which definitely goes with the Hunger Games. Since you know...Katniss IS the Girl on Fire. They went on great, and look great. The only thing I have to say is that even before I ordered Riveting, and saw it in person, it reminded me of Cherry Bomb by Orly (a lighter and more orange version). Maybe it's just me, but I see some similarities. I'm going to have to swatch that and compare it sometime.
Riveting (Alone with Top Coat)
Riveting (Up close so you can see the gold shimmer)
Riveting & Luxe and Lush
Riveting & Luxe and Lush (again I took a few pictures so you could see it at different angles)
Lots of photos in this one! :) I really tried to get a good picture of Luxe and Lush on top of Riveting. However it seems my camera just won't pick up on its beauty. It really is beautiful though! :)
I got this nail polish back when Zoya was having their get 2 nail polishes for free and all you have to do is pay shipping and handling. They actually accidentally messed up my order so I ended up getting 4 nail polishes for free. I can honestly say I am not a huge Zoya fan. For some odd reason I just don't like their formulas. Anyways, their polish, Laurie, I could not get to look right on my nails.
I've never really been a pink nail polish fan. So maybe thats why it's not my favorite. I'm not going to complain though. They were more or less free so...I'll give this another try eventually. Maybe my nails just didn't want to cooperate with me that day...
