Silver Dazzle

A couple weeks ago I took a trip to the other side of town to check out a drug store that sells some brands of nail polish that I cannot get anywhere else in town. I was in luck, the reline was done on the Milani collection, so I was able to pick up a bunch of the one coat glitters. This is the first one I decided to wear.

This is Silver Dazzle from Milani. While it says that it's a one coat glitter, I felt that it needed two for full coverage. I was amazed by this color. I could not take my eyes off my nails, and I don't think any other color in the collection will be as great. It was also pretty easy to take off for a glitter. This is definitely a must have for any collection.

Mini Haul and Easter Eggs

I saw a displayer being put up the other day at work and promptly went over to it to grab the new polishes. They were the Wet n Wild spring colors.

There names are, starting with the blue, Bird Bath, Garden Hose, Collecting Pollen, Laughing Lilac, Cherry Blossom and Sunburst.

I proceeded to use all these colors for my Easter mani.

I did a skittles mani, and used my dotting tool with the magenta polish (Laughing Lilac) to do the dots, and the brush on the other end to do the squiggled line. A representation of the Easter egg.

I was not too impressed with the polishes. The blue and green were okay in 3 coats, the pink and orange could have probably used a 4th, and the yellow, even at 4 coats still was uneven. Also after not even a full day I had a lot of tipwear.

Too Violet

At the start of the year I placed an order on transdesign to knock a couple polishes off my wishlist. The sun was out the other day, so I thought that it would be perfect to break out this polish.

This is Color Club's Too Violet. It's a really pretty magenta with holographic glitter. While I was happy to be able to find this color, it was only available in a mini bottle. I might have to buy another one at a later date.
The last two pictures are with flash and blurry on purpose to show the bling of the polish. Also that is the empty garbage can from garbage can candy :D One of my favorite childhood candies.

Fireberry Red

I present you a color that I rarely ever wear, red.

(with flash)

This is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Fireberry Red. It's a jelly red with some very small flakes and glitter in it. I think that this one is prettier in the bottle than it is on the nails. You see more of the flakes and glitter in the bottle. Also it seemed to go on uneven, I believe this was 4 coats.

More Dots! More Dots!

So if you're a World of Warcraft addict like myself you'll get the title :D

Expanding on my dot mani idea from the other day I created this one:

(flash, most color accurate)

All colors used are from Color Club. Base is Rebel Debutante, blue is Gossip Column, magenta is Ms. Socialite and the yellow is Almost Famous. I love this mani, so bright and fun. Color Club has an awesome polish formula, so smooth and easy to apply. Now I need to get myself different sized dotting tools for some more fun.

Spring Dots

I happened upon 3 new Revlon shades in a displayer at work, bought them and then decided I needed to do a spring like manicure.

This was me just playing around. I wanted to see what the orange was like. It went on smoothly and dried in decent timing. I like the orange but just felt it was so plain, so I took a toothpick and just started adding dots.


The picture with flash is the most color accurate. The orange is Revlon Tangerine, the blue is Revlon Blue Lagoon, the yellow is Revlon Sunshine Sparkle, the magenta is Color Club Ms. Socialite and the green is Color Club Rebel Debutante. I think it's nice and bright and perfect for the spring. :D
