Essie Demure Vixen with a guest star..

I promise this is the last time I do such a whack of boring polishes in a row. 

Who would have thought this would be almost mannequin hands on me?

Blah! So lets see if some HT can spice it up?

Never mind the nasty cuticles, they are DRY.

Well... not a complete fail, but pretty close. I promise more exciting colours next time.

LA Girl Metal Iron Red

I was minding my own business shopping in Winners when what should I spy?

Wait.. what? A whole polish display? Huh?

I picked 2 colours, Chris chose this one. He insisted!

Who am I to argue? 2 perfect coats in the shade. IRL it's a lot glowy-er. Smokin' hot. Good choice  husband of mine. Good choice indeed.

OPI Princesses Rule

This weekend was a frenzy of nail polish buying and building! I went to a different Cosmoprof and found a few pretties I had been looking for. 

And some I didn't even know I needed until I found them. 

Like this hottie! This is quite possibly the girliest mani I have EVER worn. EVER. 

I may be a convert to this pretty. Not just the pretty edgy. 2 coats, full sun.

OPI Russian Navy Suede

Whoever said mattes are the sweatpants of the nail polish world is a genius. Fast drying, super awesome and dare I say comfy!

I love this colour, It is amazing against my ridiculously white skin.

Know what else? It looks equally as fabulous with a shiny topcoat! 

See? Sparkly goodness!

2 coats, full sun for all pix. As you can see I chopped off the nails. I was getting dents in my palms from them being so long.. knitting seems to make my nails grow like whoa!
I hauled a whack of polish yesterday. Oh my..

China Glaze 2nite

I went to Cosmoprof the other day and while they didn't have what I was originally looking for, I found this AWESOME old China Glaze. 

It's no secret I'm a ho for the OPI DS series.. but I didn't think I'd ever find these old ChG's up here! Lighter than DS Glamour, but the holo.. oh the holo!

I am in love. I knew that esthetician's license would come in handy one day. You know besides when I was working as one.

Look out Cosmoprof.. here I come! 2 coats.. the top 2 pix are in full sun. The bottom 2 inside, natural light.

Claire's Chunky Purple

Oh wow! All this for a dollar? 

Shiny hex glitter? FOR A DOLLAR? 

It was worth the scrubbing to have sequined nails. I do have to report this did chip at bit. I rarely get chips ever, but this was a little chippy. 

BUT 1 DOLLAR. Oh Claire's.
