flawless and miami beet

it’s been a while, so i thought i would update you on my nails of the past week. i started off with flawless by essie. it is a light pink that is similar to, but a little bit dustier than pinking of you by opi. it is in their new spring collection for 2009. i only have a mini bottle of it, and while it is a nice pink, i dont think i will be buying a bigger bottle.


the next polish i used was aqua baby by china glaze. unfortunately i forgot to take a picture of it, but it is still on my toes, so i will try to put one up later. i also didnt take a picture of monsooner or later, which i wore for a day or two this week. it is a bright red from the opi india collection. i had some blue still on my nails, so it looked a little gross.

yesterday i painted my nails miami beet, which is new from the opi south beach collection. i like it a lot a lot a lot. and the name is funny. beat, beet. get it? haha. anyways, i would highly recommend it. in the bottle it looks similar to over exposed on south beach, so i want to compare them at some point.

oh and i got some on my cuticles, so sorry that looks weird.

anyways, i hope this weeks been good for you and your nails! happy polishing!

strawberry margarita, vendetta, and turned up turquoise

hey everyone! i havent written for a while since it has been a busy week. so now i have three polishes that i want to tell you about.

The first is strawberry margarita from the opi mexico collection in spring/summer 2006. it is a nice springy pink.. the picture doesn’t really represent it that well, but it is a nice color.

also, i just painted my nails turned up turquoise from china glaze. i really like it. it is neon and changes from the green color pictured, to more of a blue-green in different lighting. a lot of people have complimented me on it, but i dont think i could wear it very frequently.

turned up turquoise

finally, i had painted my nails vendetta before the turquoise. vendetta is a new color for spring 09 from chanel. it was a pretty big let down. it cost about 3x as much as my china glaze or opi polishes, and though it had a good consistency, i found the brush difficult to use and the color was pretty average.. basically what all the other brands have been doing all winter. the plus was i felt fashiony saying that i was wearing chanel, but i wouldnt advise you to run out and buy it.


anyway, thats all i have for now. happy polishing!

ds – passion

i FINALLY found them: the designer collection! there were only five or six bottles left in the store, but i had to have one. i really dont understand why ulta isnt better stocked with them. anyway, so i picked out this one. it is a medium red-pink that has holographic diamond dust in it.

the picture doesnt really capture how awesome it is.

also at ulta, i purchased a whopping 13 other nail polishes! (1/2 are just mini bottles – dont worry). i got: sand in my suit, bronzed to perfection, and miami beet from the new south beach collection. also from that collection i got the teeny bikini mini bottles, which includes suzi and the lifeguard, over exposed on south beach, and done out in deco, as well as the rapid dry top coat. i also got the mini bottles for the spring essie collection and 2 china glazes that i am looking forward to using. then yesterday i splurged on a channel polish. i think this might become an issue… new resolution: no new polish until i have used all my other ones at least once.
