♥China Glaze Dance Baby + A Water Marble♥

Ulta has most of the electropop collection for $2.99 and I picked up a few. By far Dance Baby is my favorite color! Its pink! What is there not to love about a light pink cream? The formula is very good a little streaky but smoothed out in two coats. After a day of wearing it plain I wanted some girly tiger stripes. I'm really not that into nail art but I looovvee water marbles so anlong with Dance Baby I used Rimmel's wild orchid for the purple stripes and I simply love it!!! Got a super blingy mani coming up so stay tuned. ツ

♥Essence A Lovely Secret♥

I wore this a few weeks ago and totally forgot to post it! LOL! Just saw the pics in my folder and thought let me post this. Essence A lovely secret is a dusky lavender with a pink shimmer. Which kinda gets lost on the nail unless you're in extreme sunlight. Its still a nice color and since they're changing their bottles and line this was on clearance at ulta for 49¢! ツ

♥My first jelly sandwich♥

I've been seeing this look all over blogs and I thought it was really cute. With my rather large polish collection, I don't own a jelly polish yup Im just as surprised. I polished my nails with. Orly crush on you as seen in my previous post and it was so sheer till I thought why not try this jelly sandwich? The glitter I chose was kleancolors take a hint. A beautiful medium holo-foil like glitter it can almost pass as flakies which at first I thought it was. Then I applied one sheer coat of crush on you. I like the look I'll definitely do this again using a true jelly Polish ツ

♥Orly Crush On You♥

I passed up on buying this a few weeks ago and I'm kinda glad I did. When I went back to Sally's they had much of the clearance polish at an additional %50 off so I ended up buying a bunch of Orly polishes at only $1.33!!!!!! I even got to buy flash Glam glitter mermaid tale for $3 yay!!!!
Crush on you is a pretty orange cream. Its not a neon kinda reminds me of a creamsicle! Its very sheer, which I don't mind I can build it up as much as I like. Evened out in 3 coats and I made my first jelly sandwich with this which I will be posting. Eventhough its not a jelly its so sheer till it works. ツ

♥My Natural Nails♥

I haven't posted a natural nails post in awhile, mainly because I've been taking biotin and I wanted to see the results and I can say my cuticles and nailbed looks even healthier than before. I did cut my nails down a bit because I didn't care for the shape I wanted them more squared that squoval. I do have a little bit of staining probably from the red Polish I wore a few weeks ago. But that will go away over time. ツ

♥Sally Hansen Green With Envy♥

I'm already not a fan of green nail Polish, but when I saw this I thought ooh a nice mint color I'd wear that. So when I put it on it looks a little more neon than mint. As with the last S.H. polish it is thick and streaky but this only took two coats to even out. ツ

♥Glittery goodness Kleancolors Holo-green♥

This is the first of many kleancolor hologlitters I will be wearing! I must say these are stunning and once again $1 a bottle! And this weekend a store at the mall had them 5 for $3.95! Less than $1 a bottle so I went crazy! LOL!
Holo-green is a soft mint green based micro-fine glitter Polish and it is a beauty! I loath and despise green nail polish this may only be my third bottle in my collection but its a hit! It took three coats for full opacity nice formula for glitter polish.

♥Nabi Magnetic Purple♥

After watching one of my simple little pleasures haul video she mentioned purchasing some Nabi magnetic polish. I looked it up on eBay and thought some of the colors were pretty but not enough to purchase a 30 bottle lot. So I tried to find out where I can purchase them. I went to the beauty supply for some hair care items and bam!!!! A full Nabi magnetic display. So when I saw the price $1.99 my heart skipped a beat and I picked up a few colors. The purple color finishes darker than in the bottle which is cool. The only issue I have is that the magnet is not detachable. So I had to use the magnet from the other bottle. I like the fact that it gives off a two-toned color. I plan to pick up a few more. ツ

♥Revlon Gum Drop♥

When i first saw this at ulta i was thinking oohh pretty i love lilac and lavender cream polish. It wasnt till i got it home that I realized it was scented! I like the thin formula you can build it up as much as you like. I used 3 coats. I did polish my toes with this too. I only used two coats i got lazy haha!!! ツ

♥Ulta Material Girl♥

I was so excited about this color when I bought it. In the bottle it looks like grin and Berry it with micro holo-glitter a nice magenta I was thinking, on the nail blah! I always use two coats and it looks more maroon which I don't mind but the beautiful micro glitter that makes you ooh and ahh in the bottle was totally lost!!!! It was too late to change it so to bring the glitter out I added a coat of China glaze fairy dust. This is the first ulta polish that im dissappointed with I may consider doing a swap with this if anyone wants it. I couldn't even give this a glittery goodness title. ツ

♥Finger Paints In the steel of the night♥

This is my first magnetic polish and I will be buying more! After the top coat this polish looks more black to me than steel which I don't mind. With magnetics you must go one nail at a time. It does dry fast. I like magnetic polish way more than crackle polish. ツ

♥Pure Ice China Girl♥

I was debating if I was going to post this but I do love the color however I wasn't too happy with the formula. China girl is a beautiful metallic finish copper. It reminds me of a shiny new penny. The formula leaves much to be desired. Its thick and very streaky!  It almost makes me not want to buy pure ice polishes anymore. But the colors are so pretty till I'm not ready to give up yet. Maybe this bottle was part of a bad batch. I'm hoping a few drops of polish thinner will help. ツ

♥ kleancolor Angel Red♥

I bought this Polish over two months ago and I decided it was time to give it a wear. Angel Red is a beautiful satin finished rich red. I'm so lucky to have almost every beauty supply I live near to sell this polish and guess what $1 a bottle! Maybe that's why I have nearly 40 bottles of this Polish and counting! This was truly a one coater with a great formula but I almost always do two coats which I did. ツ

♥Orly Mysterious Curse♥

I remember seeing this the dark shadows collection originally came out I kinda turned my nose up at it LOL! When I went to Sally beauty supply to pick up some items I saw this on clearance for $3.99 then they also offered an additional 50% off which made it $1.99! So I picked it up along with two other colors from that collection. I've heard this is a good dupe for royal velvet. I like the formula a little thick but it dries fast. It is like a navy blue/plum duochrome with shimmer. I'm still thinking about getting royal velvet but I still love this! ツ

♥Sally Hansen mellow yellow♥

I've had this one for a couple of months and decided it was time to rock it. Mellow yellow looks more neon on the nail than it does in the bottle. I wasn't too crazy about the formula either. Thick and streaky. It smoothed out in two coats. Nice color I'd wear it again. ツ

♥Glittery goodness China Glaze Ray-dient♥

This is one of the polishes from China Glaze's prismatic collection. Ray-dient is a mix of light green, blue, purple and silver small glitter. It only took two coats and its beautiful in sunlight like gems sparkling on my nails ツ

♥Possible dupe?♥

Right after picking up a few polishes from the icing I picked up Nina ultra pro purple-xing (which I find out later it is pronounced as pur-plex-ing) and I'm thinking this is an exact dupe for the icing's 4am dance party which was part of a collection (new York graffiti) and may be difficult to find. You can find purple-xing by Nina ultra pro at Sally beauty supply

♥Mani remix Ulta Not From Conentrate + China glaze Tarnished Gold♥

Just a remix of my current Mani which I feel was a fail. Not because of the Polish it crackles easily, the base color was kinda light. But its still stunning! China Glaze crackle in tarnished gold should be a regular polish cause its super shimmering I will definitely use this with a darker base next time.
