I couldn't wait to get home and swatch them for you!
I am going to show them by item code order, as I don't want to pick favorites.

Bring on the Bling

Glow Up Already!


Simmer & Shimmer

Show It and Glow It!


Rising Star

Take The Stage

The Show Must Go On!

Let Me Entertain You

Ali's Big Break

Tease-y Does It

As Holiday Collections go, this is a departure for OPI, usually we get 6 Reds and 6 "other" colors.
This time we get 6 glitters, and 6 "other". I love the finish of the shimmers. I would say that they are glass-flecked!. Considering that I don't like golds or warm colors... I am even enjoying the foils!
All the glitter swatches have 3 coats, as does The Show Must Go On and Let Me Entertain You... BUT check out the shimmer on those! WOW!!!

Let me know what comparisons you might want me to do.
So far I have 2 all ready to go:
1. Simmer & Shimmer, Absolutely Alice and Reflection Pool
2. Sparkle-icious, and Mad As A Hatter

I have to compare Tease-y Does It To Nubar's Rasberry Truffle,
and The Show Must Go On, to Bad Fairy (but I am awaiting shipment on this one!)

Essence Surfer Babe Hang Loose

During the next 4 nights I am going to show you the Essence Surfer Babe Collection... I was lucky enough to have someone do a CP for me, so I was able to pick these up... THANK YOU!

Dare 2 Wear Trust

This is a light blue with a pink shimmer... It reminds me of a Street Wear... although I can't quite place my finger on which one.

CND Pulse

I picke up this color is a blog sale... and it is a glitter bomb! I must wear this some night that I am going out... WOW!

New York Color Flat Iron Green

This is supposed to be a dupe to OPI Here Again... Aragon Tomorrow. I don't have that OPI to compare them for you.
I love the names of these polishes... but then again I am a bit biased as I am in NYC =P

Butter London Blowing Rasberries

I received this polish for filling out a survey that Butter London had sent a couple of weeks ago. It is a pretty color... although nothing new! It is perfect considering that it was FREE! =P

Petites Color Fever Empress

I don't like golds on me! Silvers just look so much better!

Petites Color Fever Fairy Pink

This is 3 coats, I love the application and the formula in the Color Fever Petites!

Milani Pink Out Loud

I think this color will have to satisfy my lemmings for OPI Pink Me I'm Good... as I haven't had any success trying to obtain it =(
I really like this color! It is one HOT pink =P

Look what just arrived today! Both of RBLs Catherines!!! (@Rescue Beauty)

I have one color on one hand and the other on the other hand =P
And I am SO going to rock that tomorrow! LOL

Here is Catherine... This is 2 coats...

This is Catherine H... ONE coat!!!

I hope there is some sunlight tomorrow!
I love these colors!!!
RBL hit this one out of the park! I can't wait to see swatches of the other 2 colors!
I think I might need them!

Milani Hot Flash

Love this color! It is a very deep red, it has a hint of brown on it, and with the glitter thrown in... HOT!

Milany Tedde-Bare

This is supposedly a dupe to Chanel Particulaire, but I can't compare them as I don't own it.
It is a pretty color, but it doesn't do anything with my coloring!

H&M Grey Sky

I think this is my favorite of the 3! It even has a little bit of shimmer... LOVE!

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

H&M Blue Sky

You can't beat these little polishes. They are tiny at 3.2ml, but for $1.95 you get to play with a new color. During these next 3 night I will show you the ones I picked up!

MAC Ming Blue and Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure

I should be loving this color considering that this color is right up my alley... But I don't!
There is nothing special about it at all. It is a beautiful shade of blue and I like the sparkle in it, I think I will have to give it another chance before I make up my mind on it.

I layered Hidden Treasure over it... afterall HT makes everything better!

Revlon Colorstay Continuous Cranberry and Fuchia Glitter Foil

This is only one coat of the Cranberry color! I couldn't believe the coverage it gave!
I felt like wearing something BRIGHT this day! =P

Nubar Violet Sparkle

What a difference a top coat makes on the Sparkle polishes!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Night Fright

This is actually a very deep navy... although it looks black in most lighting.

OMG! I am freaking out! This is SO cool!

I never expected to see my picture come up on 365 days of nail art blog!
I sent in the picture when I wore the manicure, so that is about 6-8 weeks ago, but it was a nice surprise to see my picture in the middle of all the acrylics!

Essie Jelly Apple

I think this was 3 coats...

Nubar Peacock Fearthers

I have wanted this color for the longest time! And I finally got my hands on it!
I think I was able to capture the DuoChrome of this polish, but the only dissapointment that I have with it is that the blue isn't more prominent in real life.

Revlon StreetWear Warp Speed

Nubar Earth

I picked up all the Nubars I am showing you in the sale they had a couple of weeks ago.
This is the first time that I make a purchase from them. The polishes are a good quality, but the only downside is that shipping is SO expensive through their site (which is the one reason why I ended up buying over $75 to get free shipping!)
