Purple Pizzazz and Daddy's Girl Comparison

I thought maybe I had a dupe for Purple Pizzazz. Apparently not. I had no acetone so no clean up this time and this photo is color corrected. Rain + no sun = bad pictures.

Both of these are at 3 coats.

Daddy's Girl, Purple Pizzazz, Daddy's Girl, Purple Pizzazz
Outdoors they look very different, but indoors they look very close. Purple Pizzazz takes 3 or 4 coats, has an annoying brush and average application. Not very sparkly. Daddy's Girl takes 2 or 3 coats, has a normal brush and better application. Lots of sparkles. It looks lighter but somehow darker to me. Weird.

The verdict: Daddy's Girl has better application and is cheaper. It also has no VNL and actually sparkles, wow! Now, I'm being kinda hard on Purple Pizzazz and although it looks flat and boring in these pictures, it's really not. It's purty too.

Something else I noticed is, but that's off-topic is that Orly has apparently asked the e-tailers to raise their price cause now they cost $3.75. If I'm correct they used to be $3.18 or $3.50. I hope China Glaze doesn't get all big headed over this OPI sh*t now too and raise their prices. These brands like Orly and China Glaze need to realize that without the e-tailers and the women who blog about them and give these sites most of their traffic, they wouldn't make near as much money as they do. (run on?) I never knew either of these brands until I started my addiction and I guarantee I never would have. Which is a shame cause CG is probably my favorite brand and Orly is really nice too. /end rant

Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Purple Pizzazz

I haven't been feeling very nail-y lately. Kinda uninspired. So here's something I just slapped on to keep my nails protected. This was sheer and needed 3 coats and would probably look even better with a fourth. I really hate these long and skinny brushes. It's hard to clean the polish off the stem and then a big drop comes while you're painting and ruins what you just did. Also when you stick the brush back in if you even scrape it against the rim the polish on the stem just spills over the sides. Anyway...

In the sun
Indoors under fluorescent. There's no VNL indoors like it looks here.

All in all it's a really pretty color. I have a dupe in mind and I'll be doing a comparison of those two here soon.

And just to make this post more positive here's a picture of a sleeping kitten.

I gots another question.

Can you even see my background? It shouldn't be completely black. For some reason it's telling me that's how it's showing up.

ULTA Professional Tainted Love

Tainted Love, oooh oh oooh. This is a really pretty green with gold shimmer. I like it a lot. Oh, and basically these photos suck huge amounts of pene. They're showing more blue than it really is. I don't even want to post this, but I guess I have to.

Bottle shot.
Beast (Jade) decided to join me for the photo shoot, as she often does.
What's that you say? Leave the nature shots to the pros? Okay.

Furry Surprise

When I got up this morning Penelope had a sweet little surprise for me. A new kitten. I figured she was pregnant because her nipples were getting larger, but she was still so tiny! No wonder if there was only one baby in there.

He's so good so far, he doesn't meow when I hold him which I like.

Damn it hold still little fur baby!
I just wanna take your picture!

Mama and baby. He looks just like her.

Sorry for the bad lighting, it's in my bathroom. I need to get Photoshop.

At Your Quebec & Call + Nubar 2010

I wanted to do this yesterday, but I had food poisoning and was too busy vomiting on myself. Damn Chinese food! Notorious for uncleanliness. Wait, I know someone will complain about me saying that so I must say I wish not to offend anyone.

A reader Sandi wanted to see this with Hidden Treasure over it, but I don't have that. Instead I have Nubar 2010, which is identical to better than HT.

Of course, 16,000 photos! Oh, and sorry for the humongous gap, I had this on for a long time so it started coming away at the cuticle.

No I'm not copying off you-know-who with these angles!

And here it is matte:

I couldn't stop thinking how much this reminded me of a polish that already exists. I couldn't think of which one until a few minutes ago. Shimmery Chic! You know, the puke color with orange-y flakies released last year in OPI's Winter Wishes collection or whatever it was called. I don't know...I really like this.

OPI At Your Quebec & Call

After all these pretty little soft colors I've been wearing I needed something ugly. Pretty color and another I used to despise. How soon we grow up. This is 3 coats. Seems like I've been wearing 3+ coaters forever. I'm more of a 2 coat kinda gal.

Err, bad picture.

Bonus, nature pictures! Mmmmm, bananas.

Not really the kinda nature you expected?

OPI Rumple's Wiggin'

Pastel purple. Less white and stark than ChG Light As Air. I still haven't worn my Light As Air (shame!), but I like this one better I think. Kind of a pain to apply. 3 coats.

Shh, that's not polish on my skin.

Nail line is not visible in real life.
I'm such a bad blogger... Can you guess what I'm gonna say? Yes of course these photos are too blue. Some of them don't even look purple at all. Well my camera couldn't get a color accurate photo, and I don't have the time or patience to tweak all of these photos in Photo Shop.
