Confetti Happy Birthday!

So basically I have the best BFF ever. Katie, my fellow nail polish fanatic and  TDV’er, gave me this for my birthday (how appropriate!). My birthday was back in June and I’m just now getting around to trying this. In the bottle it didn’t jump out at me. Sure, it’s purple with glitter (two of […] Continue reading →

Essie Jag-u-are

This is another Essie polish I have wanted for ages. As I mentioned in my butterLONDON British Racing Green post, I have a Jaguar so it’s always fun to have polishes that have some meaning to you. Granted, this is from Essie’s Winter 2006 Collection; Hot for Spots. They were obviously talking about the animal, […] Continue reading →

sonia kashuk – starry night

I was so excited when I found out about the sonia kashuk nail polishes – I looked and looked at this Target and that Target and never found anything. To my surprise a few days ago my target had a whole bunch of NEW sonia kashuk nail polishes. I presume for Fall 2010.  I got […] Continue reading →

China Glaze Grape Juice (matte)

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of China Glaze’s Summer 2009 Summer Days collection. Therefore, I find excuses to wear these polishes quite often. I’d been dying to do a matte mani since I got butter LONDON’s matte finish top coat, so I decided to try it over Grape Juice. I think this polish […] Continue reading →

OPI Russian Navy

Oh the Russian Collection. How I love thee. In the Fall of 2007 OPI released this amazing collection. I do not own a polish from that collection that I do not love. Russian Navy is a blacked out navy with red and blue microglitter. The red microglitter gives the polish a bit of a blurple […] Continue reading →

H&M U Must Have This

I probably have the best brother ever! He went on vacation and picked me up 3 nail polishes from H&M. U Must Have This is a bright sky blue creme. My brother told me he picked up this color specifically because it looked Carolina blue and I think it could definitely pass as such. This […] Continue reading →

Fingerpaints – Autumn Moonlight

Autumn Moonlight is from Fingerpaints’ Fall 2010 Collection: Seduced by Fall. I had gone to Sally’s in search of China Glaze’s Midnight Mission – which they didn’t have. I saw the rest of the Vintage Vixen display and to be honest – after seeing swatches for months I found the entire collection to just be […] Continue reading →

OPI Perfectly Red

I just love a good red mani! I was in Beauty Brands over the weekend and spotted this color. They generally have an OPI exclusive for each season and Perfectly Red is their exclusive to go along with the Fall 2010 Swiss collection. I’ve had great luck with some of their previous exclusives (Orchid Me Not!, Pomegranate Me a Wish). Beauty […] Continue reading →

Milani – Melt Down

This is great – I’ve loved almost everything I’ve tried from Milani’s Liquid Metals collection. Melt down is the only one from the 2nd round of LMs that I tried and I wish I’d gotten a few more – particularly Molten Rock and Melt in the Sun. Melt Down is a cherry red with lots […] Continue reading →
