China Glaze – Hey Doll

Tuesday, 8 March, 2011

I got this collection last year – all 12 colors and I have been going through them so slowly…this is from China Glaze’s Fall 2010 collection called Vintage Vixen. I wish I could tell you why it’s taken me forever to go through them, but I can’t.

At any rate, this is what I have on offer for you!

OPI – Yodel Me On My Cell

Wednesday, 3 November, 2010

Pretty, pretty blue….how I do love you.

Please excuse the VNL – I tried a new technique on application and it failed me. I’ll try it again later, but if it keeps failing me I’ll go back to how I used to apply.

This formula was thin and a bit moody. I had to do 3 coats to get it to look this color, but you can still see nail line. Grr. It dried quickly, that was one of the saving graces…oh, and the brush wasn’t jacked up, either. YAY!

I’ve heard this shade described as an aqua blue, but it doesn’t really remind me of any kind of aqua nor does it remotely remind me of the sea. I kept thinking, “TEAL! Teal light.” However, the shimmer in this is just freaking fabulous. I mean, Rachel Zoe shut it down, I DIE kind of fabulous.

As always, keep clicking the thumbnails because the pictures get HUGE. These are merely thumbnails. The one downside to making the picture the original size is that you really see all the imperfections in my nails and in application. Oh well. That’s a risk I’m willing to take.

PS I’m still squeeing a little bit for my Giants! I’m TiVo’ing the parade and will watch with hubby when he gets home tonight…he took caltrain in to work and said the place was a MADHOUSE. Good thing I opted to drop him off at the Santa Clara Station, but even then, it was insane. I retweeted the picture and you can find it in my twitter feed in case you’re interested.

Essie – In Stitches

Thursday, 7 October, 2010

This is part of Essie’s Fall 2010 Collection – and I love it. It is a dusky salmon pink. I thought it was super pretty…and then I wore it for a few days. Friends looked at it and agreed – very pretty. Too bad it made my hands look old. Grrr.

I rarely wear pinks and the few times I do I seem to choose those colors that make me look like…2,010 years old!

Great formula and opaque in 2 coats. Fast drying. No cuticle pull. Woo hoo!
