NFU Oh – #52

This…wow. It’s just as noteworthy as #51. Love that it’s a dark jelly with awesome glitter.

It looks purple, but it’s not. My camera didn’t capture it well. It got the glitter right, though. Words fail me on how to describe this color/polish. All I can say is…AWESOME!

NFU Oh – #51

NFU 51

I didn’t know what to expect when I got this and another color…and my camera really didn’t capture the true colors of this polish. It really is unique and different! The way the color looks in this picture is like an electric purple jelly, but it’s not. It’s much darker. There’s a red shimmer that runs through it and then there are big chunks of this awesome salmon colored glitter in it – this is a polish that needs to be experienced in person to fully appreciate it. This is 3 coats…I should’ve gone for four, but I really was just too excited and I wanted to take pictures. 🙂

I should’ve taken a picture of the bottle! It’s so darn cute  and quite a nice change from the regular square, round or rectangular shape.

Difficult Formulas I've Used – Rescue Beauty Lounge and Sally Hansen

Sunday, 21 March, 2010

These were colors that people said were so cute – you must try them! and I did…much to my horror and chagrin. I actually did 4 coats of each of the polishes below before I called it a day.

Both were a bit like jelly – and it shows in the application for me. I’ve looked at other people’s swatches of these colors and am jealous that they’ve turned out so well. Maybe it was me. 🙁 Anyway, here they are.

How awful can this application have been on me?! To make it worse, I had grabbed the wrong top coat (I have 2 of the same, but I reserve one for dark colors and another for light colors) and now you can see the red from an old cold color I had worn a few days prior. I had so much trouble with this formula. I reached the 4th coat phase and said with much grace and dignity, “F*** it. I’m done.” To make matters worse, the formula took AGES to dry. 4 top coats later – and they weren’t even thick coats, fairly thin – they were barely dry enough to put the top coat on so I could photograph them. The formula was pretty sticky, too. ugh. I like sticky in my base coats, not my nail polish, ok?

This was another color I had issues with, but not as bad as I did with Rescue Beauty Lounge. This is a 3 coater…and it annoyed me, too. This color actually didn’t look bad on me either…despite it being a yellow. I admit to buying it purely for the name – Yellow Kitty. I kept thinking Hello Kitty and giggling to myself.
