♥Revlon Extravagant♥

One of my polishes from my large Revlon haul that I'll be posting soon. This was the first color on my list and its a beauty! Extravagant is a frosty mauvish-rose color. The formula was a little thick so I added a couple drops of polish thinner and that did the trick. This was almost a one coater but the perfectionist in me can't go without two coats!!! In all I think I bought 15 or 16 bottles of Revlon polishes since ulta had them at 40% off then you can use the 3.50 off of a $10 purchase! No way I was passing that up :-)

♥Possible Dupe♥

I've had my eye on this Revlon polish for quite some time. I finally picked it up in a rather large Revlon haul I'll be posting later this week. (F.Y.I Revlon polishes are 40% off this week at ulta) stunning is a beautiful mix of silver and holographic glitter I just ooh and ahhed at its sparkling glory. Then as I'm going through my stash to change my mani, I notice my NYX girls spot light is about 95% the same the slight difference is that the holo-glitter in spot light is a Tad bigger than in stunning. I think Revlon is much easier to find as it is sold almost everywhere. I got lucky and found the NYX girls polish for a $1 at a random beauty supply.

♥Sally Hansen Blizzard Blue + Icing's Rock Star.From Mars♥

For most of the month Ulta had all Sally Hansen polishes buy one get one 50% off and yes I indulged! I have tons of teal nail polish but blizzard blue was so frosty and pretty I had to have it. I bought rock star from Mars earlier this summer and thought the two would look great together. Its a teal based jelly with micro gold glitter. I wished my camera would've picked up the golden flecks a little better. Its time for a fill in just in time for October to wear only pink nail polish to support breast cancer awareness month.

♥Santee Magnetic Dark Wine♥

I bought this about a month ago at a local beauty supply. The price of $2 peaked my interest I picked up three more colors along with this one. In my mind $2 for a magnetic polish is uber-cheap!!!
I must say I am impressed with Dark Wine
It is a rich deep red that's super shiny although the magnet that came with it worked very well, I'm just not impressed with the straight line design I used the magnet from my Sally Hansen Polish for the wavy design. :-)

♥China Glaze Fast Track♥

When I picked up a few polishes from the hunger games collection I totally skipped this color I was so into smoke & ashes and harvest moon. I'm so glad I went back for this one.
Fast Track is a buttery taupe with heavy gold shimmer. Its so creamy and shiny and beautiful. It could pass as a one coater but I used two. Great formula. I think I'll get a back up bottle of this one :-)

♥Kleancolor Sheer Lilac♥

I'm in love with my acrylic nails! Or maybe I just miss having long nails. Hopefully my natural nails will grow out like they use to when I wore acrylic nails fingers crossed!
There will be a ton of kleancolor post coming as I bought a bunch along with more icing polishes over the weekend. Sheer lilac isn't sheer at all it is more of a metallic finish. It is still beautiful. In some lights it looks more bluish. I'm really impressed by the fact its a one coater with no streaky brush strokes. Love this polish :-)

♥Fresh Paint Grapevine Goddess♥

I picked this little beauty up a few weeks ago at a store called $5 and below. I've never heard of this brand before but I'm glad I decided to try it.
Grapevine Goddess is a deep purple with blue shimmer and fuchsia flecks. In the bottle its amazing and on the nail its beautiful. The fuchsia flecks are hidden until you hit sunlight and then its even more awesome. Great formula almost a one coater. I'm going to see if I can find more colors from this brand. :-)

♥Confetti purple pizzaz + Milani pink flare♥

I caved in and got my acrylic tips back. Honestly when I wore acrylic nails my natural nails grew like crazy! So I'm trying it again. Acrylic nails can be damaging if you don't care for your nails in between fill ins. You still have to moisturize your hands and cuticles etc. Let's get to the Polish.
Confetti purple pizzazz isn't purple at all to me its a pink Polish with heavy silver shimmer and it is beautiful!!! Opaque in two coats.
Now if that wasn't enough bling I added a coat of Milani pink flare I can't remember which collection its from but it's a baby pink based polish with holo-micro glitter just stunning!!! In the sun ya need shades for this one. :-)

♥Butter London Purchase♥

Yesterday ulta had a one day sale where if you buy one Butter London polish you can get one free. If you're not an ulta rewards member or not on their mailing list you're missing out! I picked up big smoke which has been on my wish list for awhile and gobsmaked because lately I seemed to have taken a liking to charcoal or black based polishes with glitter. So I got two bottles for $14! Which I was over the moon about. Go to to sign up for their rewards program or to get on their mailing list its so worth it. :-)

♥ Mint Chocolate Chip Water Marble♥

It is my favorite ice cream in the world! And as I was eating a bowl full (LOL) I was looking at my current mani (NYX girls the taupe) and I'm looking at my bottle of sinful colors mint apple and it reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. So of course I did a quick water marble. And it only took me 4 dips 2 dips per hand dipping thumb and index finger then middle, ring and pinky fingers. I noticed the subtle shimmer in mint apple. The taupe & mint apple worked well together in the water which I was forced to use tap water since I was out of the filtered water I set aside for marbling I was worried it wouldn't work but it worked just as well :-)

♥NYX girls The Taupe♥

While spending the weekend with my cousin last week I found a beauty supply by her house that sales NYX girls nail Polish for a $1. Of course the hoarder in me picked up some and this color caught my eye first. I love grey and taupe creams.
The Taupe is a creamy taupeish-grey color if that makes sense. The application was like butter smooth & creamy. Even in two coats. A nice fall color. :-)

♥Sinful Colors Moss Have♥

Ok two things you must know. I absolutely hate and dispise green nail polish! It stains my nails and looks horrible on me. I hate matte nail polish. Its rare I will wear it. So why in this post I'm wearing a green nail polish mattified????
Moss Have is one of the prettiest green matallic colors I've ever seen. Sinful colors released a line of metallic polishes and I picked up a few in my haul. When I saw this I smiled. When I do wear green nail polish ( which is about as often as a lunar eclipse) it can't be murky or super bright (like the Sally Hansen one that I'll only use in water marbles) it must be soft and shiny like this. Then to further peak my curiosity I added a coat of madly matte and it has this shiny-satin-suede finish that's just lovely! If all green nail polish was this pretty I'd own more :-)

♥Sinful Colors Haul♥

Walgreens has done it again! .99¢ sinful colors sale and yes I took advantage! Sale ends tomorrow 9/6.
(L to R) precious metal, moss have, hot wired, cinderella, mint apple, lavender and love nails. 
(L to R) snow me white, social ladder, you just wait, glass pink, hazard and pinky glitter.

(L to R) this is it, all about you, under 18 and figi

♥Possible Dupe♥

I'm back! Had a very busy holiday weekend. Hope everyone enjoyed theirs as well. This is how bad my addiction to nail polish is, in Walmart to buy charcoal and what do I do? Wonder over to the nail polish and I picked up a few NYC polishes. Immediately when I saw starry silver glitter I knew it was a dead on dupe for Sally Hansen ice queen (which I already have) sure enough I go through my stash and bam!!! Same colors. Now both are similar in price SH is 1.99 and NYC is .93 at Walmart I believe target carries NYC as well. So if you can't find one, now you have an alternative :-)
