Spam: Orly, French Tip Dip, Color Club

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! Enjoy some spam!!

I have some random swatches to show you today. They've been collecting for a while so I just put them all together :-)

Orly Glitz. I picked this up on clearance because I don't have a gold polish this color! This is 2 coats.

Next French Tip Dip Oceana. I won this on a Twitter giveaway (Thanks Bridget!) Oceana is a minty green with iridescent shimmer. And these pictures are horrible because I am impatient and didn't wait long enough for the polish to dry. Sigh.

3 coats.

Next, Color Club Disco Nap. This mini came in my May Birchbox. 2 coats. 

Talk to you soon!

Color Club Sugar Plum Fairy

Hey guys! It's Friday... which I do not like this week because it means my vacation is almost over. Sigh. Siiiiiggghhh!!!!

Yay for holo's!

Sugar Plum Fairy is a lovely silver/multi colored holo. The lovely Maria at Nails Made Simple sent this to me because she loves me :-)

This is 3 coats, no top coat.

Talk to you soon!

Nicole by OPI Wear Something Spar-Kylie

Hey guys!

Those darn NOPI Kardashian Kolors.... I love them. My husband brought this home for me because they just started carrying the NOPI's at his job. GLITTER!!!

I used 2 coats, with 2 coats of top coat.... I should have used 3 coats. It was pretty gritty. But the polish covered very well in two coats so I was happy about that fact. 

The downside: both of the Kardashian glitters I have worn have chipped off in sheets after about a day.... umm, that's not cool. EXCEPT that glitter removal is such a pain, I don't entirely mind. I just wish it would last longer than a day!

Talk to you soon!

Essie Mojito Madness with Nails Inc Royal Arcade

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday!!

Essie Mojito Madness is from the Summer 2012 collection "Bikini So Teeny." Essie describes Mojito Madness as a lime green but it's much more blue green than lime green. I'd call it a darker, dusty mint green, if that makes sense.

Formula wise, this was probably the best Essie formula I've ever used. I could have gotten away with one coat but I wasn't prepared for that so I used two coats.

I sponged Nails Inc Royal Arcade onto the tips for a super cute glitter tipped look.

What do you think? Do you have any of the new Essie polishes or new Nails Inc Jewelry Glitters?

Talk to you soon!

*Essie Mojito Madness was sent to me via a Klout Perk I was awarded.*

Spoiled Shrimp On The Barbie with Icing Shredded

Hey guys! I'm back!

We got back yesterday from a fabulous conference and I'm all pumped up and excited for my business again :-) Not that I wasn't before, but a little bit of encouragement and excitement can't hurt anyone :-)

I have a Spoiled polish for you today!

Spoiled Shrimp On The Barbie is a rosy coral with tons of golden shimmer throughout. It's a duochrome! I'm not big on duochromes usually but this is really pretty!

I used 2 coats, no topcoat.

After a few days, I found some Icing Shredded glitter and had to add to this :-) One coat of Shredded. 

I was really surprised with how much I liked Shrimp On The Barbie. It's a little bit... I don't know, just not something I think I would normally gravitate towards but I really liked it and I received several compliments on it :-)

What do you think? Do you like the addition of the Shredded polish?

Talk to you soon!

Spoiled Deeper Dive Jelly Sandwich

Hey guys! How goes it?!

I'm a little bit crazy obsessed with jelly sandwiches right now and this is an unexpected one. I received Spoiled Deeper Dive in a swap... I didn't really know anything about it other than it was pretty much the only polish the person had that I wanted (aside from the main reason I was swapping) but I LOOOVVVEEEE this color!

Deeper Dive is a gorgeous teal color. It will easily build to opaque in about 3 coats but it's perfect for jelly sammich's, too!

On my index finger, I started the sandwich and forgot to take pictures, lol.
Middle finger is one coat
Ring and pinky are two coats. 

Icing Lemme See Your Peacock over Spoiled Deeper Dive. (Index finger is sammiched already).

2 coats Spoiled Deeper Dive
1 coat of Icing Lemme See Your Peacock
1 coat of Spoiled Deeper Dive

I looooooove this, it's like built in mermaid tales :-)

What do you think?

Talk to you soon!

piCture pOlish Mask-A-Rade

Hey guys!

Today I have my very first piCture pOlish to show you! And it took me like 5 minutes to type that because the capital letters aren't in the correct spot and I'm a little OCD :-p

Mask - A - Rade is a multichrome rainbow glitter. I layered 2 coats over Wet n Wild Black Creme.

With Flash:
I should have gone outside to take beautiful pictures but... the sun was being a tool and not coming around.

Talk to you soon!

Julep Maven June Box!

Hey guys!

Here is my always late to the party Julep Maven June polishes!

This months' box included two extra cap brushes (apparently, last month there were compaints of wonky brushes), an SPF 15 chapstick, SPF 30 Daylight Defense for your hands and face, and PIXIE STICKS! Oh yes, and of course polish, lol. I was really excited about the Pixie Sticks. They barely made it into this picture :-p 

I love this quote. I'm such a rule follower sometimes, I need a reminder to not worry about it so much and take a few chances! 

Onto the polish! First, Robin. This is a Robin's egg blue creme. I used two coats here. And it's bumpy because I was wearing glitter before this and sucked at removing it all, apparently :-/

Next, Daisy. This polish was a pretty sheer, I used 3-4 coats here but I do lovveee this color! And perfect for jelly sammich's :-) 

I layered one coat of Lac Attack Jewel Of The Nile over this yellow because I'm a little obsessed with JOTN. It looks good over everything!
