L.A. Colors Nail Polish Remover Pads

Hi Everyone!



Has anyone besides me stumbled upon these nail polish remover pads? I've found them to be easy to use and it quickly removes any polish.  Right now, I only have Strawberry, Grape, and Peach scented, but they all work the same.  These pads do not contain acetone (from what the label on the back says) and that's a plus for me since acetone tends to dry out my nails and the skin around them.  One pad, for me, cleans the polish off of 3-4 nails which I think is great. They are lightly scented and are a bit true to the smell.  Strawberry smells a bit like strawberry yogurt, grape smells like grape, and peach smells a bit like peach but a tiny bit off.

The only thing I don't like is that they leave your fingers and nails a bit oily, but once you wash your hands it's not there anymore.  I've found these for a dollar and I'm definitely going to buy more when I get the chance.  I still have plenty left, but they are worth it.  I have not tried these with glitter polishes yet, but I have a feeling they will work just as good at getting the glitter off.  If anyone has tried it with glitter polish, let me know how it went!

These also come in different scents like lemon, melon, and pear.

Halloween Nail Fail?

So, I'm not sure if I want to call this a fail or not. I did like it when I tested the colors out, but then when I put them on my nails, it kind of went downhill from there. I guess you can decide for yourself about it!

This is 4 coats of Wet N' Wild's 9.0.2.1. Orange and 2 coats of Sinful Colors Call You Later. I like Call You Later by itself, I just don't think it works too well with this. No top coat because I took the polish off soon after.





It reminded me of a pumpkin patch when trying it out, but then it turned into "blah" if you get me.

Wet N' Wild- 9.0.2.1. Orange

Hi Everyone!

So today I have Wet N' Wild's 9.0.2.1. Orange. Hate the name but love the color! Why do I hate the name? Just sounds weird coming out your mouth

I bought this color at Wal-Mart since I really don't have any orange colors in my collection and I thought it would be an awesome color for Halloween.

In the bottle this color is just amazing with it's shimmer.  Out of the bottle and on your nails, it's still awesome but so opaque. I used 4 coats in my pictures and no top coat but you can still see my nails underneath. :(

L.A. Colors Pink Sizzle

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I've been a busy bee with work and things. I promise I will have a few new posts soon!

Anyway, I absolutely love this color. It's just... awesome. It's like a pink sunset to me.  Honestly, the pictures do not do it justice! I found this color for a dollar, so I picked up a few other colors too. This is also about day 3 of wearing it, so there is some wear around the tips.  This is 2 coats with a top coat.
