I'd just like to say...

A few things about my blog.  I am not a professional and do not claim to be.  I just like to show my polish and hopefully help everyone out when buying colors or designing. 

Sometimes my nails are a little messy around the edges of my fingers, I try to clean this up the best I can without using polish remover since it tends to make my nails feel a little weaker when I use it a lot.  Therefore I will edit the edges of my fingers just to make it look cleaner. I NEVER edit the polish color in any way.  The only way I could possibly change the color slightly would be lightening my pictures since they tend to be a little dark because of my lighting in my house.

I just wanted to let all of you know this so you would know the colors are as true as I can get with my camera. Your nail color results may vary from mine, hopefully only varying slightly though!

Thanks!! :)

China Glaze-Sexy In The City

So, I wanted something to match my cute top I was wearing today, so I decided on Sexy In The City from China Glaze.  It's a very pretty mermaid blue color with a green/blue shine to it.  Needless to say it matched my top very well with the teals and blues.

With this, I applied 3 coats just so it wouldn't be too sheer and let my nails/tips shine through.  They do still shine through, but not as bad as it would with 1-2 coats.  I did not use a base coat on this since I'm out, but my top coat is China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat.

I always buy my nail polish from http://www.8ty8beauty.com/ and if you'd like to buy this color, just search it on their website!  This is one of the websites I've found that have the polish for the cheapest!

L'oreal Bijou Crystals B. Brave

Hi!

So I bought this color nail polish a while back at a discount store.  I had never seen it before in stores, so I'm guessing it's an older line of polishes from L'Oreal.

This nail polish is sort of a burgundy/plum color with tiny pieces of rainbow glitter.  I really like the color, but I had a bit of a problem applying it.  I don't know whether it was my base coat or because it may have just been old, but it sort of went on a little thick/sticky/patchy in coating.  Like I said, may have been a bad bottle or my base coat.  This is 2 coats.

(Sorry I can't get my camera to cooperate with me in this lighting, maybe I should try to do it outside or in natural lighting next time, but the color looks pretty true to the bottle)


I found the polish online for $1.75, you can buy it HERE .

First Post!

Hi Everyone!

This is my first post and I wanted to let you know what I'll be talking about and doing on this blog! First off, this will be a nail blog for anyone who is interested! I have a giant collection of nail polish, so I'm sure there will always be posts! I have a bit of everything from cheap nail polish to a little pricey and sometimes some that has been discontinued.  I hope you enjoy this blog and find it helpful!

P.S. Hopefully the first "real" post will be up tomorrow! :)
