China Glaze Dripping Wet

Sorry for my absence, if any of you noticed. :p Umm, let's just avoid the elephant in the room, okay? Though I'd love to talk about it and maybe offend a few people.

I got this from Mary of Body and Soul. She has a little shop, which I linked to, where she sells mainly Massini to people like me who don't live in the Midwest. So if you've lusted after this polish like me, or Slamming Red or Purple Medallion, you can get it there.

It's black label China Glaze, so it's not B3F. It's a HTF too, I believe. This was 4 effortless coats, definitely worth it for the color to me. Glossy and  perfect, though you need to be careful with bald spots. My SO described this as, "Either evil or some really dark grapes." Can't beat those color description skillz can ya?

Kinda ugly full on sun. The jelliness and cuticle balding is really obvious in th sun.

I'm sad. My thumb nail had a tear and I slammed it into the door when my legs were being attacked by a running cat. It snapped right off and now my thumb looks all stubby and ugly. =(

OPI Fiercely Fiona

Haven't posted a mani since I've been letting my nails breathe for longer than usual between manis. This is Fiercely Fiona 3 coats.

OPI Damone Roberts 1968... on sale here for all the people who had trouble calling. Internet is so much easier. It's not international either, of course you know that. It IS international so if you want it international girls, you better go grab it.

VNS Haul

I'm baaack! I said I had another haul and I do, this time from Victoria's Nail Supply.

Sun. They're washed out in this photo, especially the red and peach. The red's much more cherry and more like the above photo.
You Make Me Vroom. I probably have 16 dupes for this, but it's red and discontinued so it's special.
At Your Quebec & Call
Apricotcha Cheating. I lemmed this one forever.

Trans Design Haul

I must be stopped! No, this was a justified haul cause OPI's going away. I got these 6 and a boring white and some nail glue.

Rumple's Wiggin', Fiercely Fiona, Who the Shrek Are You?
What's With the Cattitude?, Sun Worshipper, Flip Flop Fantasy

I finally got my ring that I ordered from ebay for $1. I saw this on Sasha's blog and I had to have it!

I have another haul of some old and discontinued OPIs coming today...again it's justified. *rolls eyes*

Diamond Cosmetics Coffee, Tea or Me?

This was 3 coats. Just a chocolate brown creme. I banged this one up all to hell while it was drying last night. You can see the dings on my thumb and the smears and smudges on my other nails...ugh. Also this dries darker on the nail.

Lotion on on this one above...that's what's down on my cuticle area and the nail.

How often do you haul?

I have a question for all of you. I want to know how often you haul and buy nail polish.

Nubar Night Sparkle

Pretty, but hell. I see hellish removal and smurf fingers in my future. This is 2 coats with 2 coats of Seche. Sorry for the messy fingers, I don't do clean up, so... I blew the application. This is so much more pretty in real life. These pictures suck, they don't do it justice.

Blurred to show the glitter.

Color is more accurate in this photo.

Nubar Haul

I got my first Nubars today from the Mother's Day sale. I thought, nine bucks off, why not since Nubar's so expensive and has overpriced shipping. It's funny though I'll go buy Nfu Ohs, but Nubar oh no, that's too expensive. Now the Nubars outnumber Nfu Ohs by one. Anyway, here's what I got: (Oh yeah, that is an original monitor from '92.)

 Greener, Fire Sparkle, Marble Tower, Nubar 2010, Night Sparkle, Swiss Chocolate

In the sun with flash, cause there's no sun.

Close up of Nubar 2010. Better than SH HT I think.

China Glaze Grape Pop + Nfu Oh 51

I got bored of Grape Pop so I put 51 over it. Behold!

Sorry they're kinda shitty, there was no sun when I was able to swatch these so this is by my window.

China Glaze Grape Pop

I feel like I'm not posting enough and like I let my few followers down. You probably just skip over my new posts in your blogger anyway though. =P

This is Grape Pop for Up & Away collection. For some reason this reminds me of the grape flavor of the gum that came in a roll that was supposed to be like tape. Bubble Tape or something like that. This shows up waaay blue in the photos I snapped of it. I tried to get this to show up the real color, but I could not get it to. It doesn't help that there was hardly any sun today.

That's a cat related injury on my cuticle, not a disgusting, huge dry spot.

Imagine this lighter and that's the color. A lot like RBL Mismas, I think they're even dupes. It's not like you haven't seen this one before either.

Claire's Happy/Earthy

How I pined for thee, oh Claire's Mood Change polish. I can finally haz you. You could've made more awesome colors, like a red to orange or black to white, but you're still oh so pleasing.

Now if I remember correctly some girls got away with two coats. Uhh na guey, that ain't happening for me. It took me four coats, but it's worth it for the awesomeness that is color change polish. I had so much fun with this. These dry to a satin finish, so you're gonna need some top coat. They weren't especially annoying to apply for me, other than necessitating four coats.

Another thing, I haven't seen these on nails as long as mine, so it looks even cooler on long nails. Like you have a funky french on. I need to spank my pinky to make it stay in line!

Mood ring! It even turns your finger green!

Now the great debate is, should I buy back ups?
