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:

This is what the colour looks like in natural lighting…. and this……

is what it looks like under flash photography!

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!

New Recruit!

Hello, my dears!

I would just like to let everyone know that my cousin has now decided to join me in blogging!
Her name is Jodi and she loooves nail polish just as much as (if not more than) I do!
So, please give a warm welcome to the newest member of my team!

Hope you are all having a lovely Monday. More swatches to come soon!

Here’s what my nails look like right now (I apologize for the fuzzy picture)! This is “Gilty Pleasure” by Sally Hansen. It’s a beautiful colour and it looks minxed in the sun! One coat is enough, but I did two here. 🙂

It’s Almost My Birthday!

11 Mar

I am turning 21 in exactly 9 days! Too bad I don’t live in the United States, then it would probably be a bigger deal.

Here are some old swatches I’ve done in the past that I’ve actually had time to take pictures of, as well as some nail polishes I bought.

This was done at a friend’s house and I’ve completely forgotten the names of the colours. I know for sure that they were both Sally Hansen InstaDry nail polishes though. I had this wild idea to paint my nails entirely one colour, put a piece of scotch tape over them diagonally, and paint another colour overtop. This is how it turned out! I got complements on my nails every day after wearing it out!

Image
These are three China Glaze polishes I bought at Sally’s one day after I first heard of shatter/crackle nail polish. I was sooo excited to try them out. They do work really well, but I’m not as big a fan of the crackle as I thought I would be. From left to right we have China Glaze Crackle Glaze in “Tarnished Gold”, China Glaze Crackle Glaze in “Crushed Candy”, and the last one is just a regular black polish, also China Glaze.

After Christmas (whence I had been given a Sephora giftcard) I decided to go to Sephora and buy the one and only thing I will never get tired of; nail polish. These two are both beautiful colours. The first is a medium cool grey called Sephora by OPI, “Frankly, I Don’t Give A-dam”. The second is a red jelly-based, bright crimson and silver sparkle polish called Sephora by OPI, “What’s Your Poison?”. In order to get a good coverage in the red, it does require at least two coats, preferably three.

This is what “What’s Your Poison?” looks like in natural sunlight:

Alright everyone, hope you enjoyed this post! There are many more to come.
