Color Club Poptastic (Neon Pink) Swatch/Swatches

17 Jun

There were huge sales going on in my little city yesterday, so, even thought I’m completely broke at the moment (thanks, weddings), I bought one nail polish by Color Club called Poptastic. This is from their Spring 2010 line, so it’s not a new colour, but it’s still amazing!

Here’s what it looks like:

It may seem red-red based in pictures, but in real life you can definitely tell it’s a blue-based polish. The formula is smooth and creamy and does not dry too quickly on the nail so you don’t have to worry about it clumping while you paint it on! This is TWO COATS of the polish; one coat is translucent so you’ll need two for sure. Three would make it 100% opaque. It is quite a bright creme neon pink and is lighter than other neons, which I love! The darker neons do not seem as bright in lower-lighting. You will not be disappointed buying this polish! I believe it is only available at hair salons or nail boutiques. I paid $5.00 Cdn for it, but keep in mind it was on sale. Anyhow, it’s Sunday, so I plan on relaxing for the remainder of the day! 🙂

Love y’all!

When in France…

31 Mar

I’m not actually in France, and this manicure isn’t actually what I have on my nails right now.

However, a few months ago, I gave myself a french manicure, took pictures, and forgot all about them. So, you lucky readers get to see them now! Voila!

For the white tips, I used two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in ‘Whirlwind White’, as well as nail stickers to keep the line nice and straight. You can buy french nail stickers at any drugstore (I got mine from Shoppers Drug Mart). I don’t remember what kind they were, but if you ask the person working in the cosmetics department, they will be able to direct you to some ample choices for stickers. I painted one coat of Rimmel Lycra+Minerals in ‘442 French Rose’ overtop. This colour is a sheer light pink and is perfect for softening the hard white line. After that, I put one coat of Revlon ‘Extra Life No Chip Top Coat’ on and there you have it!

I just have to say that the Revlon top coat is one of the best I’ve ever used in my life! It makes my nail polish as hard as ROCK! I would recommend it to anyone, anytime, anywhere!

Ugh, Exams

22 Mar

I’m sooo sorry I haven’t been able to post much lately. School is becoming INSANE and I have have two exams today already!

I did a manicure the other day with two different pink polishes, so I will post pics of that soon.

But for now, school is my first priority!

Love y’all!
